Can I Get A Whoop Whoop - What Shade Are You? A Giveaway!!

Hi, all!

It's Friday again, and that means it's time to get our whoop whoops on!  Today's a special day - I'm going to share a secret project that I've been working on for a little while, and at the end, there's a GIVEAWAY!  You too can have a little something special to whoop about - so let's get to it!

When I was contacted by RJR Fabrics to see if I wanted to participate in their What Shade Are You blog hop, I jumped at the chance - sewing with solids? Check! A free hand to choose whatever colors I want to work with? Absolutely!!  Who wouldn't?

Now, if this is your first time stopping by my blog, let me introduce myself.  I'm Sarah, and I love bright colors, modern quilts, solid fabrics, (heck who am I kidding, I love all fabric!), and my family.  I have three wonderful grandchildren who love my quilts, so I make them at least one each year.  I've been quilting for about six years now, although I started sewing when I was eight (way more years ago than I want to admit to!)  When I started quilting, I suddenly became a "finisher" - something really different for me, as I used to be really good at starting, but not finishing.  Quilting has grabbed hold of me, and charity quilting has become my passion.  Our church's quilt ministry has given away almost 1200 quilts over the past six years! But I still find some time to design some quilts, test patterns and review quilting books - it's a good life!  But enough about me - let's get to the quilt!

Designing this quilt was so much fun!  After looking at the color card with all the beautiful RJR Cotton Supreme Solid samples, I fell in love with this peachy strata of colors... although it was a hard choice!  There are a whole lot of beautiful colors available!


It's the column on the right!

My husband wanted to go out on the boat, so I grabbed my colors and my graph book and headed out on the lake.  I doodled for a while and, with my husband's valuable input, came up with this design...




 And in a couple of weeks, these beautiful fabrics arrived!  I couldn't wait to cut into them - they are such vibrant colors, and I could see that my vision was going to work!



So after cutting - and I'll be the first to admit, I lucked out, discovering a mistake in my measurements before cutting - I got to work piecing.  Lots of chain piecing - a wonderful timesaver - and I also did a little double stitching on my flying geese, creating some little "bonus" half-square triangles when I cut them apart. (We'll see those HSTs again in a few minutes!)



 The quilt itself went together pretty quickly - isn't that the best part of modern quilts?  So much impact in a short time.  I love it!



The colors are ranged lightest at the top to darkest at the bottom, with the diamonds also light to dark.  I think it looks like bubbles rising from the depths, and that inspired the name - "Joy Rises".


I did straight line quilting on my long arm on this quilt, breaking the stitching at the blue diamonds.  The quilting rows at the top are about 1/4" apart, and gradually get further and further apart towards the bottom of the quilt.  At the bottom of the quilt, they are about 1" apart.  It adds to the illusion of depth and distance in the quilt.  I love it when a plan comes together!


The back of the quilt is pieced with scraps left over from piecing the front.  I do love an improv back! And the whole quilt is lovely, soft and cuddly after washing.  RJR's Cotton Supreme Solids are wonderful to work with!

And remember those little "bonus" HSTs?  Well, I started fooling around with them on the design wall in the quilting studio at church, and came up with this design.  I thought this might work, but needed to make a few more dark HSTs at home.



When I got home, laziness kicked in and I wondered what it would look like if I didn't make more dark HSTs, but instead took out some of the light ones from the middle.  


And I loved the effect!  To me it looks like a moon at night, at that time when you can also see the clouds reflecting the sunset.  This one is called "Moonrise" and it's about 18" square.  I don't often make mini quilts, but this one is going to hang on the wall in my studio!


For the quilting, I decided to use a technique I just learned from Christa Watson's new book, Machine Quilting With Style.  Her method for quilting a spiral is so easy - all done with the walking foot!  I love the way the quilting turned out, and the final mini is so much fun!


The spiral quilting really enhances the "moon" effect!  Sometimes a plan just comes together!

And now for the giveaway - would you like to win a fat quarter bundle of the beautiful colors I used for this quilt?  


From left to right, they are:  Shell Pink, Ballerina, Paris, Just Peachy, Flamingo, Elephantastic Pink, Tropicana, Beachy Coral, Amaryllis, Noel Red, Poolside, Riviera, and Horizon.

How do you enter?  Easy!  

1.  Leave a comment below, and just to make it interesting, answer the question in the comment before yours, and leave another question for the person who follows you.  I'll start it off with this one - sports car or SUV?

2.  You can get an extra entry if you link up for Whoop Whoop Friday!  It doesn't have to be a finish - just something you're happy to have accomplished this week!

3.  If you're a follower of this blog, or if you follow me on Instagram (I'm @fabricaddictquilts), you can have an extra entry for either or both.

That's simple enough, isn't it?  You can enter until Thursday, 9/24 at about noon, and I'll announce a winner on next Friday's whoop whoop post!

(Apologies to my international readers, but the giveaway this time is limited to the U.S. and Canada.)

And just because it's pretty, here's another shot of "Joy Rises"!


And that's my happy dance for the week - 
can I get a whoop whoop?

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

And now it's your turn!

What's got you whooping it up this week?


What's got you dancing a happy little dance?

    ReplyDelete
  4. I am kinda a thread snob. I do like good quality of thread like aurifil. Do you sew on more than one project at a time?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Entry #2 - I have been a follower of yours since the start of H2H. Both of your quilts are stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Oh no......not another reason to revisit making those dreaded half square triangles....but like always you make it look so easy and provide information to make it happen. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yes, I have multiple projects at one time.

    Cats or dogs?

    ReplyDelete
  8. A well-deserved happy dance, too.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I follow on BlogLovin. sjvonfumetti at yahoo dot com I love that you share your thought process in creating your quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Definitely love dogs although they are a lot more work than cats.

    Quilt your own quilts or send them to a long armer?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think the original quilt is just awesome!! And you know I love that use of all the extra play pieces. I quilt my own quilts on my home machine unless they are over twin size and then they go to the long armer. Question: What is your favorite color combo ?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Dog ~ but outside as I'm allergic although we walk almost daily. I pet her but promptly wash my hands.
    Beautiful quilts - just beginning some solid fabric pieces myself.
    Thimble or not?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Entry #2 for linking up to Whoop Whoop Friday.

    ReplyDelete
  14. No thimble, not much hand sewing here. I'll carry on with Sharon's question, What's your favorite color combo?

    ReplyDelete
  15. No thimble. Thanks for all the inspiration and for the giveaway. Iowa or not?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Both quilts are dynamic, but I like the HST one best. It radiates warmth and energy and I've done that spiral thing. I didn't know other people were doing it too. I think the question might be thimble or not. When I'm hand quilting yes. When I'm hand applique or piecing no I just poke my finger a lot!!
    My question is:
    How do you store finished quilts?? Mine have their own room
    LeeAnna at not afraid of color

    ReplyDelete
  17. and one for entering the wonderful link party! Wouldn't it be exciting to win! LeeAnna at leeannaquilts at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks for give away and beautiful colors. I live in Iowas and it is HOT some days. Pfaff or Bernina?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sounds like a pretty good life to me. 1200 charity quilts is amazing! I really like that. Do you always design your quilts on paper first? The improv back is exceptional and the lazy version of your hst creation is a true winner! Thanks for the linky.

    ReplyDelete
  20. HI Sarah! Ya know I"m a happy follower...keep ya right on my blogroll.

    ReplyDelete
  21. LInked my Elmo Quilt this week...can ya believe our grand guy is two already!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'll answer Leanna's question to get the questions going again....I the quilts that aren't being used are stored on a quilt ladder in my livingroom.
    My question: tea or coffee?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I linked up a finish this week!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Happy follower, beautiful design

    ReplyDelete
  25. Absolutely love yours quilts! I don't drink tea or coffee...I'm a water girl! :) Boring huh?

    My question will be Aurifil or Superior Threads? :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. My answer - neither tea or coffee for me

    Question - what is your favorite Autumn/Fall memory from childhood?

    ReplyDelete
  27. The colors you chose are gorgeous, and I love both of the quilts you made with them!
    I use Aurifil threads. My question is do you prefer old sewing machines or the new ones with all the bells and whistles?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love the quilting especially on the littler one. Love the colors.
    Hum -- both -- currently running projects on a 5 yr old Bernina and a 1950's Featherweight. Not so fond of the super high end, cost the same as a small car machines.

    My question - do you prefer light or dark chocolate? And, can I say both!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow! I love this quilt so much! Ive been seeing it on your Instagram and couldn't wait to see t finished. I've had something similar in my mind with solids for a while and I can't wait to start it!
    In answer to Bonnie's question--BOTH! But if I had to choose it would be dark. Because a little goes a long way! Yum.

    My question: sunrise or sunset?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sunset. The vibrant colors are soothing after a long day.
    Your choice of colors and creative designs are inspiring. I follow your blog and am always excited to read about your projects and interests. Enjoy your quilt show at Gladeville this weekend.

    My question?----City or country?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Your quilt is gorgeous! I love the color combo.

    In answer to Penny's question: It depends. I love the city because where I live I'm near the ocean and everything is within reach. I would love the country to just get away for some peace and quiet.

    My Question: If you could pick any sewing machine, what would it be?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great finishes!

    I'm a city girl.

    My question - solids or prints?

    ReplyDelete

  37. Amazing quilts! I really love the colors you selected & the design ~ well, you are one talented lady!

    I would like to find a nice featherweight.

    Can I say prints & solids? I love both traditional & modern quilts so I purchase both prints & solids.

    Mountain or beach vacation?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Mountain! We live in the Sunshine state so the cool refreshing mountains are a pleasant change.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am also a long time follower.
    In case you missed it, my question -

    Milk Shakes or Ice cream sodas

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love your creative process.
    I prefer milk shakes using real milk

    modern quilts or reproduction quilts?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ice cream sodas are my choice, root beer floats, agh...

    Your color choices remind me of the Mesa's out west and the diamonds could be rain drops. Very nice gradient/value progression, one of these days I'll splurge and get a color card for my favorite solids too.

    Chocolate or Vanilla flavor?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Your quilt turned out beautiful! And I love your spiral quilting on the mini. :)

    Chocolate for sure! Or vanilla with chocolate sauce. ;)

    What are your favorite fabric colors?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Beautiful quilting! your lines are so straight.

    I linked up for the party!

    ReplyDelete
  48. What beautiful quilts! And lucky you for getting to work with those lovely solids. Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win!

    My favorite time of day to sew is the afternoon and early evening because of the wonderful light I have coming through the sewing room window at that time of day.

    What is your favorite quilting tool (besides your sewing machine)?

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love my rotary cutter! What is your favorite color, and do your fabrics reflect that?

    My favorite time to sew is in the morning after my cup of tea and checking out the blogs I check each day....

    My question is : Do you have a favorite munchie as you quilt?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh my gosh, Sarah, what gorgeous quilts! I love the colors you chose for Joy Rises, and the moon quilt really does look like a moon! Just amazing work. Congratulations!

    While I'm quilting, I munch on baby carrots or Skittles. Chocolate melts and gets all over the fabric!

    Here's my question: if your life had a theme song, what would it be?

    ReplyDelete
  52. I don't eat when I'm quilting. In fact, it's probably the only time I forget to eat (unfortunately).

    My question: Press seams open or to the side?

    ReplyDelete
  53. My theme song is "I Won't Back Down" by Tom Petty.

    Question: Italian or Mexican food?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  105. Lovely quilts Sarah! I prefer piecing to applique. It's pouring rain here tonight, so my question is what type of day do you like for quilting - sunshine or rain?

    ReplyDelete
  106. I love a rainy day for quilting. We had some of that today, too. And along with it came some cooler temperatures. Yea!
    City or country?

    ReplyDelete
  107. Following by email.
    Your quilt is fabulous. I also really like what you did with the back and the bonus triangles. Sometimes I have more fun playing with those than I did making the actual quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  108. I'll answer the question that appears 2 entries back...country. I don't like the hustle and bustle of the city. Nice to visit but, you know...
    Coke or Pepsi?

    ReplyDelete
  109. Oh, an easy question. Coke for me. The real stuff--no diet, no Zero.

    For my question: Did you have any special names for your grandparents, other than Grandpa and Grandma?

    ReplyDelete

  112. To answer Beth: I didn't know any of my grandparents! Sadly, they had all passed away by the time I was born.

    Gorgeous quilt!

    My question: Peanut butter...crunchy or creamy?

    ReplyDelete
  113. I am a Bloglovin' follower and love your quilt!

    *See question in previous comment.

    ReplyDelete
  114. No special names for my grandparents, but they were special people.

    My Question: What do you do with your scraps.

    ReplyDelete
  115. My grandparents were called grandpa and grandma. I guess we are not too original in our family. Do you like background music when quilting or do your prefer quiet?

    ReplyDelete
  116. Absolutely crunchy peanut butter! My question to the next person is whether you prefer using print fabrics or solids?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Music rather than quiet. But a good audio book would be better. Great give away. Thank you.
    Chocolate or vanilla?

    ReplyDelete
  118. Awesome quilt design! I just love the colors. Vanilla (with chocolate). Regular fries or Sweet potato fries

    ReplyDelete
  119. Sweet potato every time! :-)
