A pretty primrose quilt & a pretty great giveaway with Fat Quarter Shop!

When I make a quilt for our home, it usually falls into one of two categories: 1) a quilt for daily use and enjoyment, or 2) a “mama’s precious” quilt that everyone in the house better handle with care!  Just ask my people . . . I run a tight ship. 

Well, this week I finished a quilt that has caused a third category: 3) a quilt so cute and cheerful I think I must redecorate the guest room so it has a worthy home!


Please say hello to Primrose. This fun pattern is from the book “Fat Quarter Style,” published by It’s Sew Emma (Fat Quarter Shop).  You will likely recognize the happy fabric in this sweet quilt as being Calico Days by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs 

The color range in Lori's line is fantastic and the prints are adorable.  Just look at that spunky red flower below.  It’s almost like she’s waving at us! 


I purchased my copy of "Fat Quarter Style" over a year ago at my local quilt shop.  This past winter I began piecing the flowers, and I blogged about my progress in January.  




This project was set aside often, as quilts with deadlines took priority.  I made a block here and there, and as each flower bloomed, I loved this quilt more and more!

When I finally finished Primrose, I was delighted.  It struck me that it would be a terrific quilt to cheer up a guest room.  Are you starting to see my predicament?  A new quilt for the guest room. . . which might call for repainting the walls a soft butter yellow . . . and buying crisp white linens . . . and repainting the bed frame . . . and sewing up navy buffalo check throw pillows . . . oh and maybe a plaid bed skirt . . . and how about finding a rustic wooden bench with chipped red paint?


You can see it now, can't you?  Widely folded at the foot of a country bed? Don’t even get me started on the accessories we would need.  And don’t you dare tell my husband of my plan.  I will have to feed this information to him strategically and carefully, like when he’s watching the Vikings game and not fully listening to me.


The truth of the matter is, I love making quilts of all styles and colors.  Sometimes they match the decor of our home, and sometimes they don't and that's okay too.  But this time, I think there might be a room transformation in our future. This little gem of a quilt seems like a great inspiration piece to me!



I'm pretty excited to tell you that the Fat Quarter Shop is sponsoring a giveaway of FIVE of these terrific books!!  Four of them will be stand-alone prizes, and one of them will be paired with this terrific fat quarter bundle: Ghouls & Goodies by Doodlebug Design for Riley Blake Designs!





"Fat Quarter Style" includes 12 beautiful patterns, each in varying sizes, and I'm sure the lucky winner will whip together a fabulous Halloween quilt with this bundle and book! Thank you for your generosity Fat Quarter Shop!

To enter, please leave a comment below with your email address. Tell us what kind of quilt you are working on now, or what you might make if you won this bundle, or if you've ever redecorated a room in your home based on a quilt!  

Comments are open through 5:00 pm (CST) on Tuesday, September 13. At that time, I will do a random drawing and announce the winners.   *Only one comment per person/per email address.  Email me if you are having trouble leaving a comment and I will leave a comment on your behalf. (carriedawayquilting@gmail.com) Giveaway is also open to international customers.

Another shout out to my local quilt shop owner Barb at Quilts on Broadway, who did the lovely machine quilting on Primrose. I am so lucky that she is just blocks away from me!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.  I hope you get carried away quilting . . . and redecorating . . . very soon!

  2. Just like a group of first graders in a class photo, there's always one who takes the cake and captures our eye! That's the red flower in your quilt! How special! If I won, I'd use the fabric bundle to make a sweet baby quilt or a few fun table runners to give as gives. I am in between projects right now, but do have some mending to do.

  7. I love Calico Days too, and did Lori's Bloom quilt...so cute! I'm currently working on dresden plate flowers made out of vintage sheets, but can't decide if the quilt should be all flowers, or if I should throw in some 16 patches. But after seeing your lovely quilt, I think the all-flowers might be the way to go. Thanks for the chance to win! email: jamiewickam at yahoo. :-)

  36. Beautiful, beautiful quilt!! This one is still on my 'to do' list :)! Love the Fat Quarter style book. I've made two quilts from the book and love the easy way they came together. Now I will have to move the Primrose pattern further up the list, after seeing yours.

  37. I love your quilt. It's so cheery and happy. It almost makes me believe that it's still summer vacation! I am working on a scrappy string quilt right now. It started as a small donation project but with all my scraps in blues, purples, greens and a touch of yellow, it's now quilt large. I've decided that I love it and will keep it for my living room couch. The couch is where we all go to curl up and read a good book. That spot has needed quilt for cold days and now, I think I have it. If I were to be lucky enough to win that bundle, no doubt, I would whip up another quilt for nothing special. Usually those special fabric-inspired quilts become my very favorites!!

  110. I'm new to quilting and am doing an Ugly Duckling quilt with my bins of scraps, collected from 30+ yrs of sewing - it'll truly be an ugly duckling because I didn't know quilts were made of cotton - I had saved all those scraps of every fabric type with the intent of learning to quilt one day to use them up! So now I'm learning the basics and would love to win quilting info books and fabric to start a REAL "stash"!
