A Flair for Fabric Blog Hop Give Away!

I'm so excited it's my turn today! It's been really fun to follow along the blog hop and read all of the posts from each designer and hear what they have to say about the book, some of the projects and their tips.


One of my most favorite things in the world, crazy as it sounds is finding a quilt shop with a good variety of fabric and just wondering through it for a bit.  I just watch how people relate to fabric and the excitement they share with those around them when they find a piece or a collection they just can't live without!  

Years ago, I had woman that I had never met walk into my Quilt Shop with a very important project in mind.  She wanted to make a quilt for her sister, who was going through some serious medical issues.  This quilt was meant to comfort her sister through her many treatments. 
She was a beginner quilter and didn't feel comfortable picking and choosing lots of different fabrics. 
We walked around the shop, found a line of fabric that she loved, and added a couple funky pieces to the mix.  When we were finished she was so excited and ready to start her project, and I felt very close to someone I didn't even know just 10 minutes prior!  I love how quilting and sewing brings us together!  

There are so many different ways to pick out fabric, mixing and matching, or the opposite not matching at all.  If you are a beginner quilter, and picking fabrics is a little scary, find a line of fabric that you love, throw in a couple different unexpected pieces and your done!  


Line Upon Line is a quick fun happy baby quilt or table topper. Designed
and quilted by Amy Hamberlin (that's me! :))


I love this project, Where Flowers Blossom by  Lizzie B. Cre8ive!
