macaroni love story

Back when Spoonflower first came on the scene, Morgan signed up for their beta version. For some time he was interested in designing his own fabric. He later got me to set up an account, and since then I’ve been following their blog.

So when Spoonflower announced a giveaway for a FQ stack of Heather Ross’s newest line for Spoonflower, Macaroni Love Story, I entered immediately, even though I don’t often have good luck with giveaways. I didn’t realize that Morgan was still receiving emails from them as well. So apparently he entered too. I like to believe that he was entering in order to try to win this lovely stack for me, but I guess we’ll never know.

Anyway, fast forward to a couple days later, when he jumps up from his computer exclaiming that he was a winner. I didn’t even believe him until I saw the email for myself, and then I started getting excited, thinking that some new fabrics would be joining my stash. However, Morgan seems to have other ideas.

The fabric arrived the other day and since then he continues to remind me that it’s his (I’m allowed to look, but not cut!). And just yesterday he was busy drawing out quilt designs… I don’t know what will come of this, but perhaps you’ll see a little something out of Macaroni Love Story made by Morgan!

But regardless, Heather’s designs are adorable (as always!) and I’m thrilled that I got to see them in person. Perhaps I’ll have to buy myself a stack!

    I can’t tell you how many times I have gone to Spoonflower and put these fabrics in my cart. Great win! These will turn into something fantastic, I’m sure, no matter who is working with them!

    My husband was the one who got me started on appliqué. I always said it was too hard but he wanted to make a baby quilt for his nephew with appliquéd clouds and kites on it. He did it and I discovered it wasn’t that hard after all. He was in such a hurry to finish that he brought it to a conference to work on. He said the people at the airport gave him funny looks and a lot of space. :)

    Maybe Morgan will let you play with the scraps. :) He is a lucky man.

    Hahah!! I love it! You realize that if Morgan makes a quilt… that would make you the “quilt holder upper” for pictures. It’s only fair! : )

    Cute! There are so many cool fabrics at Spoonflower I would love to try, but am wondering how they hold up after washing? Any quilt in this house is destined to be used/washed a lot – I’ve been wondering how the SF fabric holds color?

    That’s awesome! Lucky Morgan! I think he should make a quilt using his win. But he definitely should share the scraps. No, better yet, why don’t you split the fabric into fat 1/8ths and each design/make a quilt. THAT would be really fun!
