Tweet As Can Be (and Giveaways!)

I have been so excited to work on and share my latest Pop Star quilt that I completely forgot to post the finish of my super cute Tweet As Can Be quilt!  That's one hazard of only working on one quilt at a time, I guess!


These fabrics are so fun, and are definitely a more grown-up palette and design.  Look at the adorable birdies!  After my last post, someone even pointed out that they have eyelashes.  SO awesome!


I made this quilt with my Unruly pattern, but this fabric line had more fabrics than the pattern required; so I just modified it so I could use all of the prints, which also had the added bonus of providing strips for the back.  You know me; I love piecing the backing with scraps.  For the main backing fabric, I used a berry tonal fabric that blends just perfectly with this line.


Since several of you asked, Tweet As Can Be is a line by Kanvas for Benartex and is available on Fabric.com.  I'm sure you can get it in other shops as well, but I know Fabric.com for sure.

Now to the giveaways!  The kind people at Benartex asked if I would like to give away some fabric from one of their other fabric lines, Fernwood.  Of course, I said yes!!  They sent me large cuts of these fabrics, which I have turned into FOUR identical fat quarter bundles, each with 10 prints.


Now, if you are a regular reader, you know that I usually gravitate toward fabrics that are a bit brighter, but I know that these are just the right style for some of you.  Even though these are not my preference for color, the fabrics themselves are very earthy and pretty.  They have a hand-dyed look that I'm sure will look amazing in a home with this style.

To enter the giveaways, just leave a comment on this post, and make sure you leave your email address if you're a no-reply blogger!  I'll announce the winner at next week's NTT (9/9).  By the way, this giveaway is open to all, but if you live outside of the continental US, I do ask that you pay for the shipping.  Good luck to all!

This giveaway has ended.  Thanks so much to everyone who entered.  Remember, I host giveaways quite often, and if you missed this one, you can always become a reader through email, bloglovin, or any other method to be sure you don't miss the next one!

  65. Kelly, your Tweet as Can Be quilt is so lively and sweet and perfect for one of my nieces who just loves these colors and fabric styles! I see some tonals and prints I would select for blending and sashing in my own quilts. The Fernwood line is full of wonderful possibilities, both as stars and as supporting players. I have always loved blues and the 3 swirly-stripes would be great blenders with blues or with other bolder colors like your berry tonal. Thanks for the continued sharing and inspirations.
