Blogger Choice: John Adams



The Fat Quarter Shop and John Adams aka Quilt Dad have teamed up to present you with a Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive! John has specially selected 12 of his favorite prints along with 3 coordinating solids from our store for this special bundle you will only find at the Fat Quarter Shop.




What will you be making with your Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundle?
Why, a quilt of course! I am still on the lookout for the perfect pattern that will highlight both the large and small scale prints that comprise my bundle, as well as the complementary solids that are included. My criteria include an easy-to-piece quilt with large blocks to show off the awesome fabric designs, like this or this, or maybe this. Oh, how about the super popular Swoon pattern? What do you think? I'm taking suggestions in the comment section below ...




What quilt project are you currently working on?
I'm a bit behind on all of my projects at the moment, having moved to a new house last month. Many of my sewing boxes -- including all of my fabric boxes! -- are not yet unpacked, so I am going into a bit of withdrawal. I'm sure I'll find a few WIP's that I have since forgotten about, but I know I need to finish up this charity quilt, catch up on my Farmer's Wife Quilt-along blocks, start a few items for a Triangle Modern Quilt Guild swap, and finish up a new free quilt pattern for a project made with Laurie Wisbrun's fantastic fabric. I'm also leading up a fun embroidery stitch-along over on the Feeling Stitchy blog this month and invite you to come join us!




Hot Seat:
1. jelly roll or layer cake
2. planned or scrappy
3. prints or solids


Leave a comment on this post choosing one of each pair you think John would have selected. Answer correctly and you will have a chance to win one of his Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundles.
You have exactly one week from this post till the contest closes.


Good Luck!
