Designer Select: Margot Languedoc

With the bursts of florals in soft, delightful colors, you would think Spring had sprung! Instead, Margot Languedoc of The Pattern Basket‘s Blushing collection has breezed in, filling our shop with the sight of Spring. Margot has specially selected 12 prints from her Blushing collection along with 3 coordinating basics for this special bundle. Margot is here today to tell us a little more, so read on for a dose of Springtime beauty!

Q: What inspired you to pick the colors and designs in your Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle?
A:I selected 12 prints and 3 coordinating prints that I thought would look beautiful in a quilt and had a good range of colors and patterns from Blushing.

Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection?
A: 1. Apple Blossoms
2. Spring
3. Pretty

2 Truths and a Lie
1. I love florals and use them in many of my quilt patterns.
2. I never design quilt patterns with my own fabric collections.
3. There are 21 prints in Blushing.

You have until Tuesday, February 26th! Good Luck!


  1. Number 3 is false.
    These are SEW outside of my normal choices, but I absolutely LOVE them! I think I'd be tempted to completely redecorate with these fabrics!

  2. This is a beautiful line and I'd love to cut into it – TODAY! And #2 is false – she DOES design quilts using her own line – she'd be crazy not to!.

  3. I think it is #2 because I have seen her patterns in her fabric! I would love to win as I love this fabric line!!


  4. got to be #2 — how could anyone resist those fabrics– let alone the creative person who designed them!

  5. Number 3 is false, there are 12 prints and 3 solids in the Blushing collection. But, I have to add this: I LOVE what I see here! This is what I want to use in place of some of the 1930's prints that I have been using and in addition to them. Just the breath of fresh air for springtime quilting!

  6. I am a little stumped on this one! I think it is number two-though her patterns covers do usually showcase her fabrics, perhaps she doesn't actually make them with it the first time?
    Thanks for introducing me to a new designer! Just checked out her blog–LOVE!!! Beautiful colors and fabrics–perfect for my home.

  7. number 2 is false. If you look at the whole line there are 21 prints. She just picked out the 15 for a fat quarter bundle. I would love to win this collection because I think it would make such a beautiful quilt. I love the colors and prints.

  8. Number 2 is false. thanks for the opportunity to discover a new blog to follow. Lovely fabrics and patterns.

  9. Number 3 is false. It said there are 15 prints in the text above, but who wouldn't want to design a quilt with these fabrics! Such delicate patterns and the colors are good enough to eat! What a wonderful selection and thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

  10. I think #2 is false… If you go to the fat quarter shop.. There are 21 Prints in Blushing (Cheerfully Blushing, Lightly Blushing and Sweetly Blushing~ Greens, blues and pinks and then out of those three collections created a fat quarter bundle of 12 prints and 3 coordinating fabrics to make 15)

  11. Number 3 is the incorrect answer, the correct answer is 12 prints and 3 coordinating prints.
    Lovely fabric, makes me think of summer.

  12. I think number 3 is wrong. I LOVE this line!!! It is so beautiful, I cant wait to design something with it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  13. Number 2 is the correct answer, but this is a bit of a trick question, isn't it?

    Fingers crossed, I haven't won a giveaway in ages and this would be an incredible addition to my stash!

  14. I absolutely love this fabric! #2 is false! I will be ordering some to make pillowcases – breath of fresh air! Spring for sure! And a quilt for my bedroom!

  15. I love the colors in this line. It will make a beautiful quilt for my bed! Number 2. is false. (2. I never design quilt patterns with my own fabric collections)

  16. It is so #2. Love her design, colors and this collection! So excited to get started with some new projects with this line.

  17. I think #2 is false … how could anyone not want to sew with those delish fabrics! I counted 21 prints on the FQS listings for Blushing. Thank you for the chance to win.

  18. # 2 is false….she designs patterns for her own fabric collections….and I'd love to make a quilt with her latest bundle from Fat Quarter Shop !!!!

  19. #2 is false for sure. Margot's patterns and fabric are absolutely beautiful. Thank you for introducing us to her and her gorgeous designs.

  20. #2 is incorrect because she does use her own fabrics in her quilt patterns.
    I love the new Blushing. I would love to make Stars for Sydney from the collection. Would be a great gift my my new grand daughter!

  21. Number 2 is definitely false. There are 21, I counted. Looking at her collection you see all the flowers she uses and I can't imagine a designer not using their own fabric in their quilts. This is a nice collection.

  22. Lol…as a huge fan of Margot's I know that #2 is the lie. Please enter me for a chance to win this generous giveaway.
    Smiles, DianeM 🙂

  23. Number 2 is false! I have already seen some patterns with this collection on the Margot's blog! I ordered a bundle of this collection yesterday at the fat quarter shop but having a second one would make me the happiest woman in the world. 🙂 I hope the give away will be mine! 🙂

  24. No 2 is false. I just keep going to look at this line of fabric as I am so much in love with it. I want to win this SOOO bad!!!

  25. Number 2 is false. I love this fabric. Thank you for the chance. And good luck to everyone! Whoever wins will have a pretty, spring and apple blossom prize!!!

  26. Number two is false. I love the fresh and exciting take she has on the dresden plate. It never occured to me before, to use two colors in a strip before cutting out a fan blade. What a novel idea! I might want to try this technique and alternate the innermost color. The Paris pattern is also a must do. The ruffle is adorable.

  27. #2 is false and I just love love love this fabric range 🙂 Its absolutely beautiful and cant wait to get my hands on all of it 🙂 hugs Vicki x

  28. 1 is true, 3 is true, and 2 is false!
    Thanks for the contest and the beautiful Spring fabric. This is just what I have been waiting for to sew up something for our church school's silent auction!

  29. Number 2 is a lie-She DOES use her own fabrics in her patterns.
    1-true: she uses a lot of florals
    3-true: there are 21 in the entire collection.

    This bundle has 15 beautiful prints from the collection and I would love to win them! Thanks for the chance 🙂

  30. #3 – not 21 prints:

    Margot has specially selected 12 prints from her Blushing collection along with 3 coordinating basics for this special bundle.

    Thanks for another beautiful giveaway!

  31. I simply love your fabric lines and the way your use your fabrics in your patterns. #3 is wrong: there are not 21 fabrics in the blushing line.

  32. #2 is false! Why wouldn't she design with her own fabric. How wonderful would that be? I would love this fabric…what fun it would be to figure out what I would come up with to make use of all of it.
