Blogger Choice: Sherri McConnell

The Fat Quarter Shop and Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life have teamed up to present you with a Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive!

Sherri has specially selected 12 of her favorite prints along with 3 coordinating solids from our store for this special bundle you will only find at the Fat Quarter Shop.

What will you be making with your Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundle?
I made the Simple Summer quilt (exclusively featured on Fat Quarter Shop). I love the cool greens and blues in this fat quarter bundle and will also be making a table runner and placemats!

What quilt project are you currently working on?
Over the summer I worked on my Swoon quilt (pattern by Camille Roskelley) using Denyse Schmidt fabrics…just finished it up actually!

 I also spent quite a bit of time working on blocks for the Farmer’s Wife Quilt-Along. I’m making two different Farmer’s Wife quilts—a Christmas version using Flurry by Kate Spain, along with a Fig Tree version using scraps from every Fig Tree collection I have!

Hot Seat:
1. jelly roll or layer cake
2. planned or scrappy
3. prints or solids

Leave a comment on this post choosing one of each pair you think Sherri would have selected. Answer correctly and you will have a chance to win one of her Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundles.
You have exactly one week from this post till the contest closes.

Good Luck!

    Beautiful fabric! Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. I love visiting Sherri's blog–she makes the most beautiful quilts.
    I'm going to guess-Jelly roll, scrappy, prints.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  3. Layer cake, scrappy, prints. I adore the fabrics Sherri chose. Her farmer's wife blocks are gorgeous. It's nice to see the blocks done in the two different colourways.

  4. Impossible – I'm guessing Sherri loves it ALL! But you probably are going to make me choose so… jelly roll, planned, prints. (gorgeous fat quarter bundle, by the way!)

  5. I am going to guess jelly roll, planned and prints. I have visited Sherri's blog often and she makes beautiful quilts.
    Thanks for the chance to win such a nice prize.
    Regards from Western Canada,

  6. I love this collection and think Sherri would choose jelly roll planned and prints. I also loved the Farmers Wife Quilts. Where's the quilt-along originating from? Would love to know.

  7. I think Sherie's choices are Layer cake, planned and prints. Thank you for the chance to win this beautiful bundle. Take care and God bless, Cory

  8. Layer cake, planned, prints….if I win I will be making a couple of scrappy boho style skirts for my daughter, she loves these colors!

  9. I am going to have to go with , layer cake, planned and prints. Now I am going to cross my fingers, close my eyes really tight and make a wish so I can win.

  10. I found just the quilt to use these prints!! Yes, it's a planned quilt but with a scrappy look. It's in the current issue of McCall's quilting and it's called Buttons in Bloom!

  11. Sherri, we're all waiting anxiously for fall here too, although that means 80's instead of 9s, with blessedly lower humidity. No fall colors here. How about Nevada?

    I'm going with jelly roll, scrappy, prints.

  12. Tried a couple of times to post a comment but not able until today. Love all the beautiful fabrics and the two farmer's wives! Thanks for the chance. I have to go with jelly roll,scrappy and prints.

  13. Fabulous fabrics, love the colors.

    Jelly roll

    Thank you for the give-away, such fun no matter if I win or not.
