Blogger's Choice: Lindsay Wilkes


Lindsay Wilkes, the crafter, seamstress, wife and mother of The Cottage Home, is passionate about a handmade lifestyle and passionate about fabric. Lindsay teamed up with the Fat Quarter Shop to bring you an exclusive Blogger's Choice Bundle, featuring 12 of her favorite prints and 3 coordinating solids!


My fabric selection is probably a little different than the majority of blogger's choice bundles in the past. I don't consider myself a quilter, but that doesn't mean I don't love fabric! I look at designer quilting cotton from a garment perspective and even more specifically for children's garments. How can I pair patterned fabrics effectively to make a well put together garment that doesn't overwhelm a child? Sometimes that can be a challenge, but when it works, it is so fun to see! And what's even more fun to see is the look on a child's face when they put on a garment constructed from all of those gorgeous fabrics that just work beautifully together.


Q: What will you be making with your Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundle?
A: I spend so much time sewing children's clothing that I think I'm actually going to make a quilt for me. My mom has been really into quilting lately and guest blogging over on my blog, The Cottage Home. She has really inspired me in that arena. I have made a few quilts for my children, but I have never made one for me to enjoy and I think this bundle offers the perfect opportunity. This bundle contains some of my very favorite colors and designers and I think it would be beautiful in our cottage style home. I can envision curling up under it with a warm cup of coffee


Q: What quilt project are you currently working on?
A: Well, I actually don't have a quilt project going on right now. I wish I did, but there just isn't time right now. I'm actually working on my first book that is due out in October 2013, so I am knee deep in designing and creating projects for my book. Hopefully after my manuscript is completed by the end of the year, I will have more time to sew for my girls, my little guy and myself. If only there were more hours in the day!


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 Lindsay would have selected. Answer correctly and you will have a chance to win one of her Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundles.
You have exactly one week from this post till the contest closes.

Good Luck!
