"Home" Quilts and a Give Away!

One fat quarter bundle of my fabric line "Home is Where Your Story Begins," by Hoffman Fabrics.  Bundles were mailed to a list of my artist friends to create a 16x16 quilt, in their unique style, out of my fabrics, for me to share at Quilt Market. I am pleased to  be able to share with you the results of their labors.  Let the fun begin!

13 different fabrics.  You can click on the photographs to see them larger.  I think that the artists did a fabulous job using the fabric in their own styles!  I loved sharing them in my booth.  I think it's always great to show another perspective, other than just mine.  Thank you everyone for your amazing quilts!

  1. This is so difficult! I love your fabrics and love seeing what everyone has done with them. I think I'd make a mug rug or wall hanging (Like Mary Lou did), something where I could see it every day. The fabric makes me smile.

  15. Hey Jamie, I'd make 1) a 10" raw edge appliqué Jamie style, square for my "Design & Inspire" Soft Book that I refer back to when wanting or needing inspiration or just a reminder of some of the techniques I've tested. I take it to all my Sew In's and lots of girls swoon over it. 2) I'd use some to make a scrappy Victoria Findlay Wolf square to add to a quilt. 3) I will make a small zipper bag to carry my sketch pencils and pens for zentangle. 4) I'd use the last bits to decoupage the cover of my current Art Journal.... Whew! And I'd enjoy every minute of it. I'd love to win, but if I don't rest assured I'll be ordering some from someplace!

  60. Hey Jamie... I have been following fabric lines and many newly introduced designer ideas and colour palettes and yes, the "movement" for so many years (1979-present). Never have I seen a palette of fabrics designed by one person that impacts my imagination more than yours... HOME is where the heart is, where we WANT to travel in our little trailers and gather with good friends... in colour and darting pattern and light. Inspired for sure. I would love to make small quilts for all of my five granddaughters to inspire them to be the best that they can be - to DREAM big and speak out in fabric - to make the world fun and spark the imagination of their friends with colour, pattern and bright dancing FUN!!! Your fabric packet could do that for all of us... I would so happily spend the winter stitching and smiling all the way to the finish.
