Fat Quarter Idol Round 4 ~ My Style: Fabric

on May 7 | in Contests & Giveaways, Products | by | with 71 Comments

This is it!– It’s time for our last round of Fat Quarter Idol. This week our theme is all about you! We like the “My Style” pinboards on Pinterest. It’s fun to get a quick glimpse at the “look” someone loves (and we always find plenty of things to love too!). This week’s theme: My Style: Fabric.

Use Pinterest to combine 12 fabrics from Sew,Mama,Sew! to create a fat quarter pack that evokes your style… The pack of your dreams! Winners are promoted and fully credited here on the blog, we’ll sell your pack in the shop. We’ll also send you one of your packs for free! Submit the URL to your Pinterest board for “My Style: Fabric” in the comments of this post by this Friday, 5/11.

Don’t forget to vote for the Round 3: Daddy-O finals, and our Round 1: Sweet Child of Mine and Round 2: Meet Me at the Picnic packs are still up for grabs in the shop.

1. Create a board on Pinterest that includes Sew,Mama,Sew! #FatQuarterIdol and the theme of the week. For example: “Sew,Mama,Sew! #FatQuarterIdol My Style: Fabric” (The hashtag will help us find your board.)

2. Pin exactly 12 fabrics onto your board. All fabrics must come from the Sew,Mama,Sew! website. They can be currently available or in the Coming Soon section. Fabric can be solid or a print. Put “Sew,Mama,Sew!” and the fabric name in the description. For example: “Falling Flowers Blue ~ SpringSong @ Sew,Mama,Sew!” (When compiling your pack, don’t forget you can browse our fabric by designer, collection, print, and color.)

3. Submit the URL of your board to the blog post describing the theme of the week here on the blog. For this week’s theme submit your URL in the comments below on today’s post. Themes will be announced every Monday. You need to have your URL in the comments by Friday of the same week.

4. Spread the word! Tell your friends and family you’re about to become a Fat Quarter Idol!

Grab one of our Fat Quarter Idol buttons for your blog. 250 px: http://www.sewmamasew.com/april2012/fqi_button250.jpg / 200 px: http://www.sewmamasew.com/april2012/fqi_button200.jpg

  3. Elizabeth says:

    I know this can’t go on forever… but I’m sad to see it all end.
    Here’s my style… my favorite color grey(and the hardest color to find great fabric in) and some bright pops of color!


    Thank for all the fun you’ve provided us!

  4. Melissa Ann says:

    This is really complicated… but really fun! We love birds, trees, and flowers at my house. And these are totally my favorite colors!


  5. Amber H says:

    Here’s my board! Hopefully it gets in, because this is the only theme that spoke out to me the most!


  6. Jennyroo says:

    Tried it one more time! Maybe I am getting better at this as I go along? http://pinterest.com/jennyroo1/sew-mama-sew-fatquarteridol-my-style-fabric-part-2/

  7. Margaret says:

    I love shot cottons and the Habitat print and Echino and threw in my old standby Kona for good luck:

  8. Joanna says:

    I don’t know if I have a style so to speak. I mean I do, but not in sets. My taste is eclectic and whimsical and I see individual ideas in each fabric rather than one project in a grouping.

    With that said, here is mine… http://pinterest.com/lifeinalens/sew-mama-sew-fatquarteridol-my-style-fabric/
