The Fat Quarter Shop is so excited to welcome David Butler aka Parson Gray to the Jolly Jabber. David’s very first fabric collection is Curious Nature from Free Spirit Fabrics.
Q: What was the first seed that grew into the Curious Nature collection?
A:Strange elements and shapes in nature, rock music, folk art, mid-century design, motion, fashion, all things that I find exciting and soothing at the same time.
Q: If your collection had a soundtrack what would be on the list?
A:Great question! Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Leonard Cohen, Woody Guthrie, Rolling Stones, Dave Brubeck, David Bowie.
Q:What is your favorite project you have made using this collection?
A:Certainly the Curious Nature Bulls-eye quilt! (Also found on Fat Quarter Shop’s Free Pattern Page.)
Q:If this collection had a scent to it, what would it be?
Q:Can you give us a sneak-peek of your next fabric collection?
A:I can tell you it will be called “Seven Wonders” and will work alongside Curious Nature, but we haven’t edited the SKUs yet and I’d feel dumb if I showed something that didn’t make the final cut! It will release this summer.
Q:If you had a mascot, what animal would it be?
A:An Owl. (That’s an easy one.)
Q:Who is your favorite celebrity?
A:Oh I’m a fan of Michael Cain. Especially his older movies like Get Carter.
Q:If we were making a movie about your life, who would you want to play you?
A:Ralph Fiennes could probably pull it off.

wonderfully masculine fabric – about time. I think that love of the bee gees would be a false statement although I do so love the bee gees….

number 2 seems too obvious…so I will say number 3 is false…my husband doesn't like supertramp(or the bee gees!) hmmm
I am going to guess no 2.
Gonna have to say #2, Bee Gees, is out of place.
I'm going to say #2 is untrue. 🙂
I'm going to guess #2 as well.
i think #3 might be wrong. but everything is right about parson gray's choice for his bundle!
bee gees…boo hiss.
I'm guessing that #3 Supertramp is incorrect. We'll see.
I think the BeeGees is false.
Hmm.. Going to guess #2.
I'd definitely go for #2 as being false here 🙂

I think #3 is false! Love the fabric.
It has to be #2 and if not, he has an eclectic taste in music.

I'll go with #2! Beautiful fabric!! Thanks for the chance to win!!
I guess #2
OMG! Love these fabrics! I have to say that #2 is the false one. From the other groups he likes, I just can't see him liking the Bee Gees. 🙂
#2 Does not fit with the rest of David's theme of folk and rock.
#2 sounds wrong
I'm going with #2. Thanks!
#3 is a lie — Supertramp is truly awful — nothing cool about them, unlike this fabric collectio, which is fantastic!
I love Gordie, so I am voting that Supertramp is the lie!
Number three is false. Love the new fabric line!!
I think #2 the Bee Gees is a lie. Thank you for the chance to win this beautiful fabric. Take care and God bless, Cory
I think #3 Supertramp is the lie. This fat quarter collection is georgous.
Fortunately, I have no clue who any of these three groups are. I'll guess #3.
Umm #2 because I don't think you could hate Gordan Lightfoot!
I'm going to guess that #2 is false 🙂
I'd say #2 – BeeGees is false. I love this fabric collection and would be thrilled beyond words to win! Thank you for the opportunity!
I think number two is false.
#2 é a falsa.
Number 2. He doesn't like Bee Gees.
Love the collection. Very talanted family.
I think #2 is false.
Number 3 is false!
#2 is false. Thanks for the great giveaway!
I am thinking the #2 is false. Thanks for a lovely giveaway!
I'm going to say #1 is false.
I'm guessing #2 is false. The Bee gees don't even compare with the other two choices. I really want to make that quilt pictured!
My guess is #1 is false.
If You Could Read My Mind you'd know I'm saying Come on, Give a Little Bit! The Bee Gees are out!
I think that #2 the BeeGees is the wrong answer.
He is not a BeeGees guy 🙂 Number 2 for sure!
I think #3 is the lie.
I guess #2 is false. Thanks..
# 2 is false. Great fabrics.
I feel No. 2 may be the lie – only because i cannot see the Saturday Night Fever era Bee Gees being a favourite however if it was the Bee Gees of the 'New York Mining Disaster 1941' they might be!
I am going to guess #2 because I am not a fan of the BeeGees…thanks so much for the chance! Can't wait to see Seven Wonders.
Guessing number 2.
Supertramp. Anxious to see the answer. Intriguing interview.
I am going to say #2 is false
Love those fabrics.
I am going to guess 3# as false.
I'd guess #3 is false.
Fabrics are so pretty!
I'm guessing 2 is the lie.
Hi from France
I would say # 1 is false
I'm guessing #2 is false.
Great fabric line.
David does not like Bee Gees #2.
Thanks for the great giveaway.
I would guess #2 is false.
cool to meet a man who makes fabric and wonderful ones at that
Im going to say #1 Gordon Lightfoot is false
I'm going to guess the Bee Gees is false.
Gonna have to say #3… 🙂
Just a guess that #3 is the lie?
Oh yea-Ralph Flennes! 🙂
I will say, #2, The BeeGees.
Love your fabric line and am a huge, huge fan of Amy's.
Welcome to Quilting!
Love that quilt; my guess is #2 Bee Gees. Thanks, Rhonda (marshudson at comcast dot net)
#2 Bee Gees is false
I'm guessing that #3 is the lie.
I'm guessing Supertramp.
love this collection and the Bulls-eye quilt is wonderful (thanks for the free pattern too)!
I'd have to say that the lie is #3 ~ Supertramp.
This is my favorite all time collection. I'm guessing the Bee Gees.
I think #2 is false. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your great giveaway!
Wow what a different fabric collection. . .I am guessing #2 to be the false one.
I gotta say #1 is false. Folk music is very different from all the other genres of his favorite music performers. But this is a tough one for sure.
Gonna have to say #2 but i don't know about this one!!
We must be about the same age, because I like his choice of music. I'll say that number three is false.
I am guessing that #2 is false. Thanks for the fun!!
I am going with #3 as a lie.
I'm a BeeGees fan but I'm going to go with #2. His fabrics are wonderful and looking at his picture is a fine thing too! 🙂
Given the soundtrack above matches the musical tastes of my husband, I'm going to guess that the BeeGees is the false answer — no way would my husband ever say that he loved that band, and I'm guessing that David Butler is having a chuckle by throwing that choice in. 🙂
I can only guess and I would say #2 is false.
I think Amy and Parson are dancing to Beegees at home. So I am guessing no. 1 is false
I think #2 is false.
I hope #2 is false cause that's my guess! Love these fabrics so much.
My guess #3 is false. Thanks for the chance to win.
It's statement number 2.
great giveaway – would love to win this fabric – I'm guessing #2 is the false one !
I think number 1 is false!
p.s. lots of people have difficulty reading the Blogger word verification please could you turn it off?
has to be the bee gees!
I think #2 is false. Thanks for a chance to win!
#1 is false
I think #2 is false. Thanks for the great interview, have really been looking forward to this gorgeous collection.
#2 seems obvious, which makes me have some doubts…but I'm still choosing it. Your fabrics are fabulous.
kewl fabric :O)
I think #1 is a lie! Love the prints! Thanks for the giveaway'
I'll guess that #1 is a lie.
I think #2 is a lie.
I'm guessing that #3 is false.
I'm guessing the lie is he likes Gordan Lightfoot
I bet he DOESN'T like Supertramp!
Music is hard to pick – so I'm gonna say Bee Gees – but I like songs from all of those artists!!
I think #2 is incorrect.
I am going to quess #2 is false.
I think #1 is false
Is it no.2 the Bee Gees (tho' love them) they kinda don't fit in with Leonard Cohen & the others. Just love the collection especially those greys……….
I think #3 is false. The fabrics are wonderful!
i'll guess # 2.
My guess is #2. Great fabrics.
Love the fabric!!
I'm gonna guess the Bee Gees, #2.
My guess? # 3 Supertramp just don't fit!
total guessing:) #1
I'll guess Supertramp because, come on…who doesn't like the harmonizing of the BeeGees?????
My guess is #2. Interesting fabric–love Amy Butler's designs, too!
I say #2! Love this fabric!
I think #3 is false.
My guess is #2. Modern manly fabric for the men in my life – I am IN LOVE with these fabrics
I am going with #3 as false. I am loving this fabric too!!
I love the fabric–feminine and masculine, bold and subtle, wild and quiet! Who wouldn't love it. The bee Gees seem like the obvious choice so I'm going to go with #3. Ha! Hope I win!!
I, personally, would choose #2
Even though I love pre-disco BeeGees, I'm guessing #2 is false.
LOVE these designs! L O V E !!
I choose #2!
Yvonne' I really.really, hope its #3. Because I like the fabric and I really need it.
I think #3 is false!
I'm going to guess #2 (even though I LOVE the Bee Gees).
I guess #3 is false…
My guess is #2 is false. Thank you for your generosity.
I think #3 is false! Gorgeous fabrics!
Well I will say #2 is false. Hope I win they are beautiful fabrics. I would love to see them in a quilt for my grandson. Pick me plea. Thank you for the giveaway.
I was thinking that the same person who likes the BeeGees might like Supertramp, but then I read that Woody Guthrie is on your playlist, which made me think you might like Gordon Lightfoot. So, I'm going to guess that #3 is false. Fingers crossed. Any extra points for documenting my work? 😉
I am going to say #3 is false.
I'm guessing number 2 is false.
I think #2 is the lie. 🙂
I think it is #2 – The Bee Gees … Thanks for the chance!
Just by looking at the artist he named I would think #2 would be the lie
GUESSING #2 IS FALSE!
THANKS FOR SHARING!
Great fabric line – I think the Bees Gees is the answer.
He's into rock and roll – it's got to be #2 Bee Gees as the false one, right?? Pleeeassssse be right!!!
#2 is false: He does NOT like the Bee Gees!
I guess #2 Bee Gees is false because so much is true about Gordon Lightfoot and Supertramp! This is a great fabric line.
I am hoping it is #2. I love this fabric range and the images that they evoke – nature, silence and serenity.
I'm guessing number 3 is the lie. Looks like a fabulous fabric collection.
I have no idea, but I'll guess Supertramp. Thanks for a chance to win the fabric. Looks like a great line!
I'm thinking #2 is false. Great interview! Thanks!
Great interview and great fabrics – thanks for the chance. I don't think he likes the Bee Bees – #2
I'm going with number 1 because I think it is least obvious 🙂
I'm guessing that #2 is false. On a side note, an owl would be my mascot too!
I am guessing that Number 2 is false. It's a bit like eating sugary cereal day after day. Nice once in a while, but on a daily basis it would interfer with my calories consumed by chocolate.
