BasicGrey Pattern Giveaway!!!

I love BasicGrey!!!  Their fabric lines are fantastic.  Their mixture of colors is always stunning and I love how they add grunge prints with their lines.  I am currently working on a Braided Irish Chain using Hello Luscious and am just starting a new bed quilt using their soon to be released line Little Black Dress. (Which is totally drool worthy!!)

So . . . You can imagine how excited I was when I contacted by Shara of BasicGrey.  She is just amazing and I am so happy to have gotten to know her better.  And I was  thrilled when she offered to let me give some of her patterns for their new upcoming Blitzen line away to a lucky reader!!!  (And I am sure you are equally thrilled!!)

BasicGrey's patterns are fantastic!!!  Their directions are so easy to understand.  The layout is super easy to follow and the diagrams are full color and absolutely fabulous.  And with lots of size options for each pattern you are sure to find the quilt that will work for you.

 Don't you just love these patterns!!!!





Would you like to win your own copies???  Just leave me a comment.  You can tell me if you have any Christmas in July projects planned :)  I will choose 2 lucky winners on Wednesday the 11th!!

Good Luck and Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
Pin It!

  1. I love their fabric lines also! Ugh, I am at a standstill with projects right now. But once I get motivated it will be on my sister's wedding quilt. So no, no Christmas in July projects.

  2. I love these colors. We are working on starting our advent calendars and I am starting a Christmas candle rug swap. It's kind of scary to think I only have 6 months to get all the Christmas gifts done as well.

  3. This is awesome!! I'm in the middle of making a Christmas pillow from an old sweater of my Mom's, and I just did a guest post on LilyPad Quilting for some Christmas ornaments. I also intend to get started on a Christmas table runner this month. I hope I can follow through!!

  4. The Blitzen line of fabric is beautiful. Currently I don't have any Christmas projects planned for this month but it's still the first week so I could have something started before it ends.

  5. No Christmas projects just yet but am working on my pile of WIP to finish as many as I can this year, wish me luck and like you just love anything Basic Grey.

  6. I love their fabric! I'd like to put a dent in my Christmas sewing this month. I pulled out the fabric and sorted it in June. Nothing too crazy, some bags and wallets for the kids on my list.

  7. Thank you for the chance to win. I have just finished a Plus quilt using Joy fabrics. I began machine quilting it and then spent 6 joyful hours with my seam ripper! Thank goodness for recorded tv shows! Now I'm 1/3 through hand-quilting simple lines and I love it. I am always challenged in quilting when there is a huge difference in the colors of fabric used -- what color thread, etc. Anyway, all is well. After all, it's just quilting and not life altering!

  8. LOVE BasicGrey's line of fabric. Decided this was the summer to finish some UFO'S. Have finished 3 quilts already and am currently working on a UFO Christmas Quilt!
    Would love to add Basic Grey to my summer projects!

  32. I do not have any Christmas in July projects planned so far. I usualy start in Aug/Sept/ Though I do need to start thinkinh of what to make everyone this year.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I LOVE their grunge prints too! In most cases you can use them in place of a solid, but they're so much more interesting. I've bought a bunch of them (along with their other fabric). I have no plans to start on Christmas quilts this months, because I'm trying to concentrate on reducing my number of UFO's. Or at least I'm hoping too. However, I do need to make a bunch of Christmas quilts, 'cause I don't think I have even one.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks for the giveaway. My Christmas project -- dolly quilts for grandnieces. Perhaps this is the year to make a Christmas quilt for my mother.

  52. I have recently discovered this fabric line and am excited to get some and play with a project. I do like the 2nd pattern. It would be fun to use to make a holiday table topper.

  156. I have and unfinished quilt using Basic Grey's Fruitcake fabric, a layer cake. I want to finish it to put on our bed this year! It's queen size and I don't relish the thought of putting it into the sewing machine to quilt.

  171. Downunder we love christmas in July because it means we can really enjoy the hot food - turkey with trimmings, pudding, so much to tuck into. If it is about 100 degrees or more...so it is usually salads, seafood, watermelon.... Thanks for the giveaway from Basic Grey, Melissa

(still learning how to do free hand quilting on a large quilt) I plan to give it o my mother this Christmas... I had hoped to have it ready for last Christmas but other sewing projects took more of my time than expected... I'm sure you Never have that issue! lol Your ability to move your many quilts through their various stages amazes me. I am not so steadfast. Thanks for inspiring me to continue.
