a Friday giveaway, thanks to Lady Belle Fabric

Happy Friday to you! Today I have a great giveaway for you, thanks to one of my sponsors, Lady Belle Fabric. You might remember my earlier post about their shop, but if not, let me give you a quick introduction!

This great online shop is owned and operated by husband and wife, Rob and Brooke Becker. They offer a great variety of modern fabrics, offered by the yard and by a variety of bundle sizes – fat eighth, fat quarter, half yard, as well as loads of precuts.


Their site is easy to navigate, which is so important when shopping for fabric! It’s easy to shop by designer, manufacturer, or by type of bundle.

Today Rob and Brooke are generously giving away a beautiful 34 fat quarter bundle of the Cotton + Steel basics. These are some of my favorite basics, and I think I add at least one to every fabric pull!

    I look forward to swimming outside every summer and watching the fluffy white clouds float by — swimming is great for quilting since I get more ideas when I swim. Beautiful fabric…I would love to make a quilt with them about summer and swimming!

  211. 212
    Bridget says:

    WOW what an amazing giveaway. They are gorgeous. My favorite summer activity starts with a plane ride back to the North East where I get to see family for the only time of the year, I also get to reintroduce my son to all the fun things that a New England Summer involves, such as… jumping off docks into lakes and rivers, taking canoe rides, watching fireworks over the water, walking the Maine coastline and driving through the mountains of Vermont! Love an East Coast summer, there is something more precious about the season in a place that is covered with snow for much of the remainder of the year, something Californians just do not understand.

  212. 213
    Holly O says:

    As a full-time middle school teacher, this one’s easy. My favorite summer activity is … QUILTING. It’s usually fits and starts during the school year, so I try to set completely unrealistic goals for myself during the summer. This summer, it’s a stash-busting 8 completed quilts.

  213. 214

    Beautiful fabrics once again from Cotton + Steel! Thank you Lady Belle Fabric! My favorite summertime activity this year has been taking our new lab puppy (Watson) swimming at our lake cabin.

  240. 241
    Jessica in CT says:

    I wish I had the summers off. Policing tends to be busier in the summer so whatever time I can take off to escape the grimy world of crime with and enjoy fabric and sewing, I do! It’s never enough time, but precious all the same.

  252. 253
    Shannon says:

    As a high school teacher I am limping towards the end of the year – only four more school days! Summer (when it finally starts for me) is all about getting to spend tons of time with my little ladies, get somewhat caught up on farm chores, and stay up wonderfully late sewing, weaving, and spinning!

  253. 254
    Becky M. says:

  267. 268
    Penny G says:

    My favorite summer activity is probably spending time with my granddaughters. Now that they are in school we only get to see them nights and weekends during the school year and the 5 hour trip ( one way)isn’t worth it unless there is something special going on in their world. Sunner is great since we get to spoil them all week long!

  268. 269

    What a fab giveaway! Many thanks for the chance to win. Picking fresh food from our garden and buying goodies at the Farmers’ Market and cooking all that fresh stuff up is one of my very favorite summer activities. Our Vermont summers are so short…it makes time in the gardens and the kitchen so, so sweet.

    My favorite summer time activity is actually spending time in the house and enjoying the sunshine from inside. I enjoy piecing quilts in the AC in the hot state of Oklahoma. I am sensitive to the sun so I spend lots of time indoors. I do enjoy getting outside about dusk. I did plant some flowers this year for the first time in many, many years and will be watering them late evening. I’m looking forward to that. It is a pleasant change to see the sun after what seems like a long time of many, many weeks of rain and floods here. Thanks for the great giveaway. I’m working on a Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt so I love fat eights – they are perfect for some of the rounds.

    Fave summer activity: Backpacking! It actually has many similarities to quilting- I start off with an exciting plan, I love it so much at first, it’s so beautiful… then it takes a long time, there are challenges along the way, my patience is wearing out, I’m getting blisters (sore hands & shoulders). Then alas! My reward- a great view or a fabulous quilt, a sense of accomplishment etc….

    Swimming and inventing new and different recipes to use up the bounty of gardens and farmers markets. I love fresh vegetables! That’s a beautiful giveaway; thanks for the opportunity.

    Thank you for the generous giveaway. The fabric array is beautiful. During the summer, I really enjoy taking my two-year old granddaughter to the closest park available!

    Beautiful fabrics! I wish I could buy them from here (Brazil). Do you ship to Brazil? Maybe Lady Belle could do business with big fabric shoppers here in SΓ£o Paulo: Niazi Choffi or Fernando Maluhy. I will keep dreaming. When it’s summer, I like to go to a swimming pool with my kid and sew baby quilts too. Bye!

    Favorite summer activity? Walking the beaches on Cape Cod after dinner. We have such short summers here, that every day by the ocean is wonderful! Thanks for the giveaway.

    My favorite summer activity – soaking up the sunshine, looking at the flowers, watching the fish swim in our pond, seeing the dragonflies and birds. I do enjoy the AC on hot days though.

    I am drooling over the first collection. My favorite colors! I love when I get a revived desire to sit and read for hours in the summer. It is such a luxury to have a chunk of time to do that!

    I just had a birthday, and decided to try to not buy new fabric for the next year – and to use my stash. If I win this beautiful fabric, I guess that won’t count!
    Love your blog and your quilts!
