Designer Select: Me & My Sister Designs

The Fat Quarter Shop and Me & My Sister Designs have teamed up to present you with a Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive! Barb & Mary has specially selected 12 prints from their Amelia collection along with 3 coordinating Bella Solids for this special bundle you will only find at the Fat Quarter Shop.

Q: What inspired you to pick the colors and designs in your Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle?

A: The fabrics that we chose for our Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle are just plain ole fun! The name of this collection was inspired by a quilting retreat we do every year on Amelia Island in Florida. What better way to represent that cheerful Summer feeling than to choose fabrics that are bright and colorful!

Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection, not including any of the fabric designs!


1. Whimsey
2. Watercolor
3. Refreshing

*2 Truths and a Lie*
1. We are really sisters … in fact two of five!
2. We like bright and playful colors and designs.
3. We are really both blondes and dye our hair brown!

One of the 3 statements is false. Comment on this post telling me which statement you think is false. Answer correctly and you have a chance to win Me & My Sister Designs’ Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle!

You have exactly one week from the post date.
Good Luck!

Oh, and make sure you visit Me & My Sister Designs blog for a chance to win a Fat Eighth Bundle of Amelia!


  1. I know that #1 and #2 are true, so #3 is a lie! Thanks for the fun – I love this beautiful bundle and the solids work perfectly!!

  2. I just bought two charm packs of Amelia to start a quilt with my granddaughter this week. I know she's going to love it!!! πŸ™‚ I, also, think that #3 is the false statement.

  3. I just can't believe #3. I think this fabric bundle is gorgeous and I wish I could hang out with Barb and Mary because they seem like SO much fun to be around!

  4. First of all I love, love, love the fabrics these ladies design. Fun, fabulous and oh so colourful. I really don't think that #3 is correct. They do look like sisters though.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  5. #3 is a lie. I'm fairly sure of it. If I was a blonde, I would not want to die my hair brown! So, I'm going with #3.

    Thank you for a chance to win!

  6. I think it must be #3. Who know though. They may be blonde going gray that is dyed brown! Thanks for the giveaway. Kathie L in Allentown

  7. I know #2 is true. And I can't quite figure out if #1 is a trick or not. But why would you both dye your hair brown? Since I"ve seen pictures of you younger and you had brown hair I guess I need to go with #3 as the lie.

    But I want to win this so badly……

  8. Ladies!!! Anyone with sisters knows that # 3 has to be the lie! I would love to design fabrics with any of my three sisters!

  9. Oh heck, just to be the rebel I am, I'd love to pick another number than #3, but that would eliminate me from the drawing. So, crud, I guess I'll go with the correct answer. Whichs is #3!!!!

  10. Oh, lordy, we all know that #2 MUST be true. I'm guessing that #3 is the lie. πŸ˜‰ Not that they wouldn't be beautiful as blondes . . . lol

  11. Let's try number 3, but I'm also thinking number 2 is partially false. Seems I heard on a podcast that one of the sisters likes more muted tones. Oh well….. Amelia is an awfully pretty line!

  12. Honestly, I watch there collections very closely. I'm terrible at choosing colors, my daughter tells me. But, they selections always make me feel like a little girl again! They are always playful, charming, and absolutely lovely. The first time I chose a quilting project it was actually from one of their patterns because they even make newbies like myself feel competent with the instructions!

    As for the adorable giveaway, I have to choose #3! Thank you so much!

  13. Well, I know #1 is true and #3 is not out of the realm of possibilities. BUT, I'm going to say that #2 is the lie because technically that is not true; only one of them liked bright and playful colors and designs.

  14. #3 has to be a lie! The first two seem obviously true, so the last has to be a lie! I love the new Amelia collection!!

  15. I have no idea which is the lie, but I'll go with #3 'cuz I've never heard of a blonde going dark on purpose.

    The fabrics are beautiful!

  16. The third statement is false. I love your designs and am proud to say that the first quilt I ever made by myself was with your blizzard collection! Amelia is beautiful. Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  17. I was just looking at this bundle on your website! #3 is false and I would love the chance to win these lovely fabrics.

  18. #3 does not ring true. Hope I win!

    Love the fabric.

  19. I think #3 is a lie. I love this fat quarter set. I'm not surprised I like the design aesthetic- I just finished a quilt designed by Me and My Sister designs!

  20. # 3 has to be the lie. I mean who could pick # 2 – they so obviously love bright and playful colours and designs. And they look like sisters….

  21. #3 looks fishy to me…..

    Loving the colors and inspiration from Amelia Island, just love that place!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. I'm in lve with Amelia! Just yesteday ordered a jelly roll
    as well as backing from The Fat Quarter Shop!! But that deasn't mean I woukd turn down free fat quarters! lol

    I have to go with #3 as the lie.

  23. lets see….#3

    Love this collection. I've been waiting for something like this to pull together a quilt for my niece!

  24. Definitely #3 is false. All you need to know to guess this is to look at their many lines of fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

  25. I am sure that #3 is not true. I love your fabrics and can't wait to get some. I even know which quilt I want to make with them. They are so cheery and bright, but not too bright! Love em'. Rhonda

  26. # is not true because the other two are so true! Love all their work but these colors really do capture the feel of Florida.

  27. Okay, they're not really blondes. I do love that look the sister on the right is giving the sister on the left. That's how you can tell #1 is true!!! πŸ˜‰

  28. Neither look like blondes, so I think #3 is the lie. Since my new Granddaughter has been named Amelia, and her Mum and I love bright colours, I am going to have to get my hands on some of this!

  29. Got to be #3. Obviously sisters, can't be denied, and by this great selection I can tell they like bright and playful. Thanks for the opportunity to win this great bundle.

  30. If the old saying of "blondes have more fun" is true, then why dye your hair? I think the sisters are really brunettes, so #3 is the false statement.
    Love the whimsey in the refreshing fabric!

  31. I thinki # 1 is a lie. I think you are sisters but not 2 of 5 sisters. I love the fabric and thank you for the giveaway.

  32. I also think it number 3 that's not true – but in their case I don't think it matters – they're having just as much fun πŸ™‚

  33. They are not really blondes, but you know the age old question, "Do blondes really have more fun?" They sure seem to have alot of fun for brunettes, but so do I!

  34. I'd like to believe #3, but I think it's false. LOve the designer bundle,and I love all of your bright colors.

  35. You are not blond! Unless you do a most excellent job on your eyebrows.

    My honey is from FL and it is the most beautiful place to him. Wrapped in Florida he is happy, even joyful.

  36. # 3 is the lie! That's so funny, because me and my friend used to say we had "blonde roots" when we'd do something silly!! I love the bright colors too!

  37. I agree that #3 is not true. You look like sisters and you really don't look like blondes! πŸ™‚ I do love you fabric!

  38. The third statment(n0. 3) is not true
    I've been reading their blog and I will tell you that they have so much of fun designing fabrics. I would love to have them as my neighbours. I would love to grow old having much fun(also lot of pillow fights) with my sisters.

  39. I have to go with #3. Although you would be gorgeous blondes, I believe God made you brunettes. And God doesn't make mistakes.

  40. I'm sure that by watching the two of them in action, you could come to the conclusion that they really are blonde. However, I'm betting #3 is false.

  41. I think I'm going to go with #1.
    What's funny is that I actually come from a family of 5 sisters. I hope it doesn't bit me in the butt.

  42. "3. We are really both blondes and dye our hair brown!:" – is my choice for the fib – lol

    Thanks for the giveaway – The fabrics are lovely πŸ˜‰

  43. I think number 3 is the lie. I love this fabric and I love the name of the line. I lived on Amelia Island for 2+ years. It's a beautiful place.

  44. Well that one is the easiest one ever! I think No. 3 is the lie. "We are really blondes….." Now the hardest part is getting my name drawn. I have never, ever won ANY of these contests. πŸ™

  45. Love Love Me and my Sisters who do not dye their hair brown #3 is false. Follow their blog – love their humor. Dee

  46. #3 is the lie! These sisters are hilarious; I love following their blog, and this fabric line is so girlie fun!!! Thanks for the giveaway. dstrong(at)bcps(dot)org

  47. It's number 3. They are in on the secret that brunettes have just as much fun (maybe more…) than blondes!

  48. I believe #3 is a lie. They may not want anyone to think that they act like blondes. I would love some Amelia to make one of my granddaughters a quilt.

  49. You are very much alike, so I'm sure you're sisters. # 2 is obvious, so I guess # 3 is false.

    Love your fabric, thanks a lot for the giveaway.

  50. I know #3 is a lie as I've been an admirer of these talented sisters for quite awhile. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the giveaway!

  51. Hmmm, I think I'll go with #3 is a false. I don't know many blondes who would dye their hair brown! Thanks for the contest!

  52. I think #3 is definitely false. Thanks for the chance to win a giveaway!


  53. I think it is #3. I have dark eyebrows with my dark hair as well….thanks for the opportunity ladies! You continually out do yourself with each new line!

  54. I'm gonna have to say # 3 is a lie. If not they do a fantastic ( and I mean super fantastic) job with their roots!! What a fun pair. Thanks!!

  55. Well, I am not sure which one is a lie but I will guess number 3 too.
    THanks for hosting such a nice giveaway -someone is going to love having this fabric.
    Warmest regards,

  56. well. I know they have sisters… and I know they love bright and playful colors… and #3… is false.. because… they are so busy designing awesome fabrics and patterns.. they have no time… to color their hair!! :0)

  57. I know they have sisters… and I know they love bright and awesome colors.. #3 is false… as they are sooo busy designing.. they don't have time to color their hair!! :))

  58. Hahaha! You girls don't fool me, it's gotta be #3!!!

    Only us natural blondes would know for sure!

  59. It has to be being both blonds and dying their hair the color it is.
    They definetly look like fun.
    Kathy Sabel

  60. I know a blonde when I see One! You sisters are really brunettes! Love this new line, and my mom's name is Amelia!

  61. #3 is definitely the lie! I know they're sisters and I KNOW they like bright, playful colors. I can spot their fabric lines a mile away! The bundle would make something really cute for my granddaughter we're expecting the end of October.

  62. I'm sure #3 is a lie – I am a brunette and would never dye my hair if I were a blond – well maybe just to cover the grays. Beautiful, fun and carefree line of fabric – I would love to create something with it. Thank you for offering this giveaway.

  63. I haven't heard many people who are blonde and dye thier hair brown.. sooo, I am going with # 3 is a lie. Thanks for sharing….

  64. I think #3 is wrong.

    Thanks for the chance to win some beautiful fabric.

  65. Having seen pictures of the two of you, I have to go with #3. You both had brown hair in the picture. I adore the Amelia collection and can't wait to make something from it!

  66. It's gotta be #3. Pretty funny, I must say (although really, why wouldn't you want to be a brunette??) πŸ™‚

  67. I'm going with luck #3. This was my fist look Me & My Sister Designs. Thanks for the introduction! I like their style. I've got my eyes on "Ready Set Snow".

  68. I know it is number 3!!! Call it quilters intuition or whatever you want to but you see, I may be just as wacky thee!

  69. I believe it is number three that is not true….oh, how I love that fabric! They are talented, no matter what color their hair is! LOL

  70. I think #3 is false! Thanks for the chance to win such great fabric!

  71. #3 is the lie. I think that I would have to share this fabric with my daughter. She is learning to sew and doesn't have much fabric yet. Love the colors!

  72. I'm certain that #3 is false! Amelia is another great collection – I especially like that basketweave print – always great designs and the best colors!

  73. Based on your skin tones, I'm guessing that #3 is not true–you look like true brunettes to me.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  74. I love the colors in the collection, plus the florals are my favorite. I think number 3 is a lie.
