BLOG HOP 2013!

BLOG HOP Stop #11 ... Lila Tueller!

Hello friends! I am really glad you stopped by! Today I am hosting the Blog Hop for Riley Blake Designs! We are getting really excited for the Fabric Fest which is coming up in September in Las Vegas, Nevada! I am lucky enough to be invited to be one of the featured designers there, and I will be teaching three classes.
The first two are for the "Casual Clutches" pattern, and the third class will be the Everyday Wrap Skirt, which is a free downloadable PDF pattern featured here on my blog.

Here are some highlights:

The Casual Clutches pattern features three style designs, and includes two sizes to fit your i Pad, e-Reader or tablet. Or you can use it as I often do, with just my wallet, sunglasses, keys and phone when I'm dashing around town, or when I don't want to carry my large purse. There are also two inside pockets, and a magnetic closure.
This size is also PERFECT for the teenager in your life, who doesn't really want to carry a purse, but needs to! The shoulder strap is long and adjustable so it can be worn cross-body, keeping everything safe and secure.



The pattern is designed for either laminated cotton, or regular quilting weight or decor weight cotton fabrics. These are done in my "Fiona's Fancy" laminated coordinates.
Another great thing about this pattern is the hardware! This is the thing that makes it look professionally made and high-fashion. The hardware kits are included in the class supplies, along with the pattern and all the materials you will need to make the clutch.  Won't it be fun??



The Everyday Wrap Skirt:



This class will feature the techniques for making your own personal skirt pattern from paper and pencil and a tape measure! By the end of the class you will have made a skirt that fits your own body, to wear all summer long! It works up fast and easy, and even seasoned seamstresses will benefit from learning the formula for making skirts to fit all your female friends and family without needing to purchase a pattern! I'd love to see you there!

Now For the Giveaway!

I will be giving away this beautiful Metro Slouch Bag made from my "Priscilla" collection in laminated cotton!




This bag has lots of great features. There are multiple inside pockets, lots of interior space to keep all your necessities, an elasticized side pocket on the outside for your cell phone, a wide shoulder strap for comfort, and even a cute little jeweled tassel!

 Make a comment about why you love fabric and I will choose one winner at random within 48 hours! 

Additional prizes of Priscilla fabric pre-cuts will also be awarded! 

Don't forget to check out tomorrow's blog hop post: Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter

   

During the blog hop, these great sites will be blogging all about Fabric Fest and the wonderful classes they are teaching. They will also be giving away some great prizes, so you'll want to keep this list close by!

Katie said...

I love all fabric because of the gifts I make! I never understood my Mom's love for quilting until I made my first bag that I gave away. I love making stuff for other people and my children.

samtaylorcjsmimi said...

Oh I just love fabric! Why? Just because I love it!! I love to touch it and look at it and have it. I love to make quilts and bags and clothes and pjs for my grandkiddies and doll clothes and whatever strikes me when I see a new fabric! Thank you so much for the chance to win your great slouch bag an maybe even some FABRIC! :)

Susan said...

I love the many different patterns of fabric! The best thing, that I like to make, is mystery quilts. Choosing fabric, without knowing how it turns out, is what makes the quilts so special!

Carmen Nuland said...

I love fabrics because it's another stash I can acquire! LOL Actually I think different fabrics can change your mood - you can feel modest, sassy, or bright and colorful

Beth said...

I love fabric because it lets me express my creativity!

Deb B. said...

I love your Casual Clutches and would love to make a wrap-around skirt! Why do I love fabric you ask? Because there are so many wonderful colors,textures and patterns. And so many things you can make with fabric. It's a Fabric Feast...I mean Fabric Fest!!

Melissa said...

Wow; I love fabric because you can do so very many things with it and change the entire look of a space with just a few fabric changes. And it is soooo pretty and feels lovely and one can never have enough:) Thanks for th3e chance to win this great bag:)

Joanna F. said...

The fabric is just gorgeous! I love the colors especially. I just love lime green. I could find so many uses for this bag with my 4 littles. Thanks for the chance to win such a beautiful bag!

diane kirby said...

Hi, Fabric, is art to me the more unusual the better, I love to framed quilts with wildlife center panels.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

So many beautiful designs and colors of fabric are available! I want to own them all!

Phyllis W. said...

I don't just love fabric, I adore fabric. For me, I need to touch it to imagine what those woven threads will create. It is a mesmerzing experience which opens the doors to creativity. If a fabric brings inspiration, and most do, I immediately know what it should become, down to the most minute details. I began sewing at age 7 and it is the one hobby which brings me peace, because when one has the desire to create, nothing can compare to the sense of accomplishment felt when you complete something with your own hands and a sewing machine. Judging from my abundant collection, one could say for me that fabric is a significant essence of my life.

Regina Rose said...

I love fabric because you can create so many things from it, the possibilities are endless! I love the look on someone's face when I give them a handmade quilt or bag and their face lights up. I also get bored with my environment and love to change it around with new curtains and throw pillows. Your slouchbag is beautiful and I would love to win it!

Gale, Ky quilter said...

I love fabric because I can sew it into something beautiful . . . and it comforts me. I am home alone a lot due to a chronic illness so fabric is also my friend. Even when I don't feel like sewing, I can look at it & & fold& refold it, stroke it. I tell my son I am "playing". Awesome bag . . . thanks for the chance to win!

VickiT said...

I love that purse pattern. It has all I look for in a purse! All those pockets plus the outside cell pocket. Great purse.

Fabrics? I love them because it means I get to play and make all sorts of things for myself or to give away to others which happens more often than not. And all the beautiful colors of fabric is the biggest plus. One can find just about any and every color combination they could possibly want and make the perfect item instead of just accepting what's in stock at a store.

Gill said...

I have no idea why!
The colours, the textures, versatility - I just love the stuff!

JeanneOT said...

Wow, this fabric is amazing! I love florals and you have beautiful bright colors. I wish I could make it to Fabric Fest, but my pocketbook just won't allow it at this time and trying to get time off in September at work is nearly impossible (end of fiscal year). Thank you for the opportunity to be awarded the fantastic slouch Bag. Well, off I go to download the skirt and luggage tag patterns.

rainadelrio@cox.net

I love fabric because the fabric choice can make or break the design! The most elaborate pattern can be ruined by a bad fabric choice and a plain t-shirt can look fabulous with the right fabric. I love fabric so much I tend to hoard it. :-P

Rhiannon said...

Seriously....what's NOT to love about fabric. It's SO great because you can make just about anything your creative little mind can come up with. I love to just sit and create, without even a pattern, because I love to see what comes out in the end. Then I can make changes if need be if and when I make something again. And Riley Blake fabrics are awesome!! I just bought a bunch of different chevron patterns. SOOOO happy!!!

susanne martin said...

I have loved fabric since I was 14 and stayed over at a friend's house. Her mother had done up her bedroom in a gorgeous blue flowered fabric. It was stunning and felt like magic had created a bedroom fit for a princess. From then on I was hooked on creating magic for myself, for those I loved and anyone in need of a special feeling. Fabrics can give that.

Have a wonderful day!

I LOVE FABRIC because I grew up with it, my Grandma was a seamstress in a small town, when I was little and wanted to learn to sew she drew a heart on a piece of paper, threaded a needle and had me "Sew" around the heart, of course, it fell out of the paper when I was done "Sewing" but in the end I had a cut out heart and my Grandma got more sewing done because I wasn't pestering her while she was REALLY SEWING. When she passed away my Grandpa took all her scraps to another seamstress in town and she sewed them together in a quilt top for me, my Mom, my Aunt and I put it on an old quilting frame and tied it. I still have that quilt 40+ years later and it is hanging above my bed. :)

Fabric , for me, is a doorway to a creative space in my soul. I have become disabled and homebound and fabric and the needlearts is a world I can gloriously inhabit with a useful product at the end that can be shared with those less fortunate, those needing something to comfort them, and I get the joy of interacting via this tablet with an extraordinarily generous group of people who share their creativity and caring through the one item that weaves us together: fabric. I think the wonder of leftovers or scraps is they were originally whole and full of potential, bright and shiny but are now broken down into bits and pieces and we can take all of those pieces and put them back together again, with ingenuity and love, probably more beautiful and useful than before as they now have a purpose instead of being a yard of fabric. Yes, I love fabric and have for 45 years or more.

What's not to like about fabric! From making clothes, to decorating the house, to warm and colorful quilts, to beautiful purses and totes. I have tried to make the most of using fabric.

Donna said...

Creating something seems to be something that I need to have fulfillment in my life. I've tried many different mediums and always come back to sewing with fabric. Fabric can be so colorful and shaped and sewn into something beautiful, practical, luxurious, or just into something that fills the most basic need of warmth and clothing. that is. Just a few of the reasons I love fabric!

I use fabrics to make my quilts and I love making quilts, that's why I love fabrics. And, I think, the various fabric designs are a reflection of the designers' personalities. They put themselves out there for us to pick and choose. Thank you for sharing a little bit of yourself in your fabric lines. And thank you for the chance to win.

Fabric is an expression of the artistic vision of the designer and when you find someone shoes fabric appeals to your sense of beauty, it's like appreciating fine art. You want to create something beautiful with it.

I love fabric. I love Riley Blake fabric--it's so cute but not cutesy, sophisticated and fun, and lOts of fun colors.
I love the way soft cotton feels, and how it takes colors and prints so beautifully. I love looking and touching fabric and imagining all the great things I can make with it.

Tracey said...

Now you've made me think. I love fabric was a given until you asked me why :) I get a buzz knowing I'm going fabric shopping, I love knowing I have a stash and I love taking fabrics out and putting them together to match colors and designs and most of all I love how you can take a flat piece of fabric and turn it into a functional and stylish bag or wallet and I LOVE the look on my 3 year old's face when she puts on a skirt I've made her. Yeh, I love fabric and what you can do with it and the smile it gives people when they see what you've made for them.

I love the possibilities in fabric. What will it become -- a bag, a quilt, an article of clothing? I love the varied colors. I love the softness of it. I think we could all write a treatise on why we love fabric, so I'll stop there.
