turns out I am a quilter… and a blogger!

Two years ago, on June 1, 2008, I was convinced to start a blog. Thinking back now, I’m not really sure why I started one — I wasn’t even sure what I was going to blog about! Anyway, my first blog post can be found here, and I imagine you might get a laugh from reading it. I owned that very tiny stack of fabric, and I’m not even sure I even knew how to sew at the time!

So this is a celebration of 2 years of blogging. Turns out I do like blogging, and since starting the blog, turns out I also love (love!) fabric and making quilts. I think it’s fun to celebrate milestones, and I think this one is worth celebrating! And by celebrating, I mean a giveaway, of course! Thanks to my wonderful sponsors, I have a fun list of prizes for you!

So, here they are, in no particular order…

tufted-tweets Prizes 1,2, & 3 from Laurie Wisbrun of Scarlet Fig -

Laurie has been designing and printing fabulously fun fabrics through Spoonflower for some time. She also has recently worked with Robert Kaufman and her new line, Tufted Tweets, will be coming out in June. I know you’ve all seen it and love it (I sure do!).

Laurie has generously donated three prizes, one for each winner. There are 2 fat quarter bundles of her Tufted Tweets line and also a 1/2 yard bundle of Laurie’s Donkeys in Wellies collection through Spoonflower.

pink-chalk Prizes 4-8, from Kathy of Pink Chalk Fabrics -

You all know and love Kathy, right? She has a wonderful selection of fabrics as well as a great selection of solids. She’s also well known for her fabulous customer service and her speedy shipping.

Kathy’s generously donated 5 $20 gift certificates so the winners can select exactly what they want!

hope-valleyPrize 9, from Charlie and Lindsay of Hawthorne Threads -

I sometimes feel like Charlie and Lindsay are my neighbors, though while NY is close to VT, it’s not that close! (I do receive my fabrics really quickly though!) They have a really great website — tons of great fabrics from all your favorite designers as well as a fun color matching feature and photos of finished projects. I also love their ‘coming soon’ section – it’s fun to drool over the new fabric lines. They offer discounts for larger purchases and tiered pricing for repeat customers.

They’re offering a fabulous fat quarter bundle of Denyse Schmidt’s newest line, Hope Valley.

freebirdPrize 10, from Jody of the Fabric Shoppe -

Jody is a new sponsor, with a wonderful Etsy shop, specializing in all your favorite fabrics, sold by the yard and in fun fat quarter, 1/2 yard, and yard bundles. Jody also puts a different fat quarter on sale for $1 on a weekly basis. I always love to see what’s being offered that week, and of course it’s great to be able to add a fun piece of fabric to your stash for only $1!

Jody’s offering a fat quarter bundle of Freebird, which is the newest line by Momo.

mosaic394a0a2aabf0e919da77818d089474288546068aPrize 11, from Randi at Fresh Squeezed Fabrics -

Randi is also a new sponsor. I was first attracted to her shop for her fun, bright mix of fabrics and then I also discovered that she also carries some fun patterns – lots of great bag patterns and my favorite tunic pattern, the Shearwater Kaftan. She also has a really great sale section!

Randi is offering up this great new bag pattern, the Emma Day Bag by Tanya Whelan, as well as 2 yards of fabrics required to make the bag.

LiberatedQuiltsPrize 12, from Pam at Mad about Patchwork -

Pam is located in Canada and has a great online shop with great printed and solid fabrics. She also sells bundles, patterns, books and even cotton rick rack in great colors. She also has a great blog here, with photos of great quilts. I’m loving these quilts in shades of purples!

Pam is donating one of my favorite books, Liberated Quiltmaking II by Gwen Marston. You might remember that my Flying Farfalle (and my (still unfinished) Dinner Date quilts are inspired by one of the quilts in this book).

IMG_4951Prize 13, from Cindy of Sewing on the Edge -

Cindy isn’t currently a sponsor, but I absolutely love her pincushions and asked if she’d want to participate in this anniversary giveaway. She collects all kinds of selvedges and creates some of the very best pincushions. I’m lucky enough to have one made of Heather Ross selvedges and I love it! Cindy uses crushed walnut shells and it gives the pincushions a really great weight. Each one has a variety of selvedges and cute piping and a corresponding print for the back.

For this giveaway, Cindy is giving away the pincushion shown in the front in this photo (others, such as the two in the background of the photo, can be found in her Etsy shop).

Circa-50-set-of-12Prize 14, from Cynthia of Fabricworm -

Cynthia was my first sponsor, and I think her shop might have been the first shop I ordered fabric from online! She has a huge selection of prints and I always find something new (and almost always something I never even knew I needed!) She also has a great selection of Japanese prints and a fun selection of childrens prints. Cynthia has also started Birch Fabrics, which produces 100% organic fabrics.

Cynthia has generously donated a fat quarter bundle of their newest line, Circa 50.

Film in the Fridge PrizePrizes 15 & 16, from Sue at Blueberry Buckle -

Sue has all the Kona solids you might ever need! She carries over 150 different Kona colors, so you’re sure to be able to find the color you want. She sells them by the yard, 1/2 yard or FQ, or, if you’re like me and like to order multiple yards of your favorite colors, Sue is quick to set up custom listings.

Sue is offering 2 $25 gift certificates so you can select exactly what you need.

IMG_1480Prize 17, from Jackie of Canton Village Quilt Works -

If you’ve spent any time looking through blogs, you’ve probably read a comment from Jackie. She reads and comments on a huge number of blogs, all the while maintaining her online shop and her own blog! Jackie also sells a great selection of Kona solids, including the absolutely essential Kona color chart, as well as charm packs, roll ups and fat quarter bundles of Konas.

Jackie is offering a beautiful ROYGBIV fat quarter bundle of Kona cottons. A great start to your collection, or a wonderful addition to any Kona stash!

MMS-300x225Prizes 18, 19 & 20, from Phiona of Nido -

Phiona is a local sponsor who owns a fabulous fabric and yarn shop in downtown Burlington. She carries a great mix of all the newest designer fabrics, along with an entire range of corresponding solids. I love that she carries more than just quilting weight cottons too – I’ve picked up a lot of the Anna Maria Horner voiles, as well as some of the new Nani Iro double gauze fabrics. She also carries some Marimekko prints and several prints by Mod Green Pod, which I’ve been using for market bags. And did I mention how cute the shop is? I go there for the fabulous fabrics, but often spend a lot of time openly coveting her antiques! If you’re in the Burlington area, be sure to stop by and say hi!

Phiona has donated three wonderful prizes – 1 yard of a gorgeous Nani Iro print as well as two sample bags of Marimekko fabrics, which each include 5 cuts of fun Marimekko prints.

fmfAnd lastly, for Prize #21, I’m donating some of the very first fabrics I fell in love with long ago (and what really fueled my love of fabrics) – the fabulous Flea Market Fancy by Denyse Schmidt. I’ve put together a collection of fat eighths of some of my very favorite prints.

Thank you all so much for visiting the blog and for leaving such wonderful comments. You are all a huge part of what keeps me motivated to keep blogging!

And of course a huge, huge thank you to my fabulous sponsors! I hope you’ll all take the time to visit their shops and let them know you appreciate them as well!

    Hi Ashley, when I first got into quilting in February, I started browsing the quilt blogs and yours was one of the three or four that I kept coming back to as just an incredible talent. You really have an eye for shape and colour which I wish I had. Lots of your quilts are my favourites but the Postcards one which you created the hard way (!) is probably no. 1 on the list. Happy blogaversary and enjoy your giveaway(s)!

    Megs says:

    I know I say this a lot when I comment on your blog, but you are truly an inspiration, I only started quilting about 8 months ago, and it was after finding your blog that really motivated me to give it a try. I find it hard to believe just how much you have accomplished in such a short time, and because of this I see books and fabric ranges in your future! I often participate in swaps on flickr and they always ask what your quilting style is and I always say that my inspiration and Style is very much Ashley from Film in the Fridge, so there you go, in two years you have not only become a quilter and a blogger but also an Idol, inspiring lots of others out there to give it a go. So Congratulations Ashley, and I can’t wait to see what you are doing in the future!

    Well, every one of these prizes is fantastic. Although I was quilting long before I discovered the online quilting world, your blog was one of the first I discovered that gave me new ideas about quilting. I don’t think there’s ONE of your quilts that I don’t love, but I think my all time favorite is your strawberries and champagne quilt. I tempt myself with buying it once in a while, although that would be super-crazy since I have a gazillion quilts around here!

Not sure how you are supposed to work on all these projects and write as often as I want you to. You’ve given me such inspiration. You’ve taught me it is okay to step out of my box. Please don’t ever stop blogging. I now have several knock-offs of your projects. Thanks so much, Cristy Kessler (in Bahrain)

    Congratulations on 2 years! I just discovered your blog a few months ago, looking for modern quilting inspiration beyond Denyse Schmidt’s book and website. Your quilts are GORGEOUS and I love reading your blog from day to day. Definitely great inspiration! Thanks for such a great giveaway to celebrate!

  753. 753
    Jennifer says:

    WOW check out the number of entries! Wonderful!
    I’m excited about the giveaway and think it’s a fantastic variety of prizes, but more importantly – you have just given me a LOAD of inspiration. I am probably not too far ahead of where you were when that first post was made! I have more fabric than that (but most is not as cute!) but I’ve also had my sewing machine for about 12 or 13 years now, and my mom got it for me for Christmas When I was young so it was a basic inexpensive Brother model.

    I’ve recently done my first quilt top, and have yet to quilt and bind it – but you’ve given me some ray of hope! Love the site and keep up the awesome work! Thank you!!!

  754. 754

    Allison says:

    I am long overdue in leaving a comment on your blog. I am fairly new to blog reading, but have been reading yours for the last 6 months. I now dream up quilts in my head when walking my dogs, check your blog nearly daily from work, and am truly inspired by you. I made some of your patchwork napkins (scrapbuster project) for a Christmas gift and although I’ve sewn for years and years and even pieced a couple simple quilts, I’ve never machine quilted and am truly inspired to try. My first “real” quilt will be a robot quilt (Alexander Henry, “I Am Robot Man” fabric) for my son’s big boy bed. I am still thinking I’ll send it out to be quilted as I’m afraid to try machine quilting for the first time on something so large (twin bed size). More babies in the family are coming though, so perhaps I’ll take the dive on a gift quilt.

    You are truly an inspiration and thank you so much for your blog and all the great photos you share. I LOVE LOVE your string quilts, munki martian quilt, and the newest goldfish twin boy quilts.
