Leaping Bunny Pillow and Luna Sol Blog Hop

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed and Paula (who wants to visit Egypt and New York City – great choices!) won. Keep reading to see more about the new Luna Sol fabric, though!

I am so excited for my friend Felice’s new fabric line, Luna Sol, to start making its way into the world later this month! Today is my turn on a blog tour to share some fun projects made with her fabrics. I’ve also got a fat quarter bundle of the whole line to giveaway – so make sure to make it to the bottom of this post to see the other stops and enter the giveaway!

Luna Sol Fabric Display

I went to quilt market in Salt Lake City in May to help Felice out with her booth. This is just one corner of the space she put together – she packed so much color and hapiness into that booth! You can see the Luna Sol look book with lots more amazing projects here. See that bunny pillow? I designed it to match one of the cuties in Felice’s fabrics, and the FPP pattern for it is now available in my shop.

Bunny Sewing Pattern

While blender fabrics serve many good purposes, there is a special place in my quilty heart for fabrics that have cute critters and designs. Luna Sol has several prints that are perfect for fussy cutting <3. I started putting some of my favorites in my scalloped hoop necklaces, and couldn’t stop!

Fabric Necklace

There are a total of 19 SKUs in this collection. I’m personally the kind of quilter who usually buys just a few prints from each of several lines rather than entire collections, but these are all so great that its hard for me to pick favorites. There are also 5 coordinating solids chosen from Windham’s artisan cottons, which are similar to shot cottons in that they have different color threads for the warp and weft, so they have a lovely mirage effect in person.

Be sure to check out the other stops for the tour this week:
Sept. 19 – Fabric Mutt with a tutorial for a mini medallion from Felice’s booth
Sept. 20th – Bryan House Quilts with gorgeous photos of a new quilt pattern she made with Luna Sol
Sept. 21st – Stars & Sunshine – that’s me!
Sept. 22nd – Modern Sewciety
Sept. 23rd – Sew Scatterbrained

 

Luna Sol Fabric

As I mentioned at the beginning, I’ve got a fat quarter bundle to giveaway! I love Felice’s story behind some of the prints in this line. There are basically these bunnies that live on a version of the moon covered in fields of flowers, but when they want to travel elsewhere they turn into comets to jet around. To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post telling me where you’d go if you could travel anywhere. Would it be somewhere on Earth? In space? A make-believe land? For me, it would either be Japan or Pluto (which I will always believe is a planet). I’ll pick a random winner on Friday, and the sweet folks at Windham will send the bundle their way. Lucky!

  1. I’m not interested in travel. As a child my family lived a lot of different places up & down the Eastern US> I’ve finally grown roots & I’ll happily stay in one place for the rest of my life. Thanks for the lovely giveaway

  2. I am totally with you on Pluto being a planet. I feel slightly sorry for it.

    Where would I jet off to? Depends when you ask me… Right now a week in the Maldives sounds nice.

  3. My husband is dying to visit Mars, but the thought of this makes me totally claustrophobic. I would visit Australia or New Zealand–one day, for sure!

  4. I’d love to go to the Olympus of Greek mythology! Greek Gods have always fascinated me

    Thanks for a fab giveaway! It’s a stunning line!

  5. If I could travel anywhere, I would have to pick China. Ever since I was young, I’ve always been fascinated with pretty much anything and everything Chinese, I feel like it’s because it seems so completely different than anything I’ve known/grown up with.
    Thanks for the giveaway, your pillow is precious!

  6. I would like to go to New Zealand. I love nature and i believe there is much unadulterated nature to see in Neww Zealand. It is on my bucket list, the short one, next 2 years perhaps.

  7. I would go to Japan, or New Zealand, or Scotland… there are so many places I’d love to go (especially if it were by floo powder or teleportation and so instantaneous).

  8. Love this line so much! And even more now I’ve read more of the story! I’ve always wanted to head to Narnia, or in the real world New Zealand and Europe!

  9. It’s hard to choose! I have a long wish list! Ireland and Scotland are where I want to go the very most, though. Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. In my real world I would love to travel to Bali or the South Pacific or Tuscany or the Galapagos Islands or some other exotic place I have not thought of yet.

    In my fantasy world, I would love to time travel and fantasy hop. I would visit known lands from long ago, times of yore, run with the dinosaurs, roam with the vikings, swim with ancient creatures. I would fantasy hop to visit imagined places and planets and ride the dragons with Daenarys.

  11. I want to go to Egypt and back to New York City and a million other places. I will keep my feet firmly planted on Earth, though! Thank you for the giveaway!

  12. I love the vibrant colors of this fabric. So beautiful! If I could travel anywhere, it would actually be Scotland. I have always been fascinated with Scotland’s history and I would love to see every castle there. Thanks!

  13. Pluto is still a planet in my heart.

    If I could jet off anywhere it would be to London. Lived there for a year in college and it captured my heart. I go back whenever I can make it work. But Japan and especially Tokyo DisneySea would be a close second!

  14. I married my husband after he retired from the Navy, I wish I had been able to travel with him, Italy is what he mentions the most 🙂 I love this line, I can’t wait to go “overboard”!

  15. I agree, Pluto is a planet too! 🙂 & your necklaces are AWESOME!

    I would LOOOVE to visit England…and Australia…would be sooo hard to pick which place first!

    Thank you for chance to win your Give-a-way too!! 😀

  16. Easy – I’d go to Paris 🙂 I went years ago thinking it would satiate my desire to go, but no. I’ve just wanted to go back ever since, lol. I’ve been really wanting to go lately 🙂 Thanks for the great giveaway!
