who wants some Brrr?

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED!


Last week I showed you this quilt that is in the current issue of Fat Quarterly (Issue 9, Kids). Ginger (he's 6) and I made it together as a gift for his teacher. I also mentioned I'd be giving away a bundle of the same fabrics, didn't I?

Many Hands

I suppose I should get on with that giveaway, shouldn't I?

One person will win a FQ stack of the whole Brrr line, courtesy of Robert Kaufman Fabrics. It's not even in shops yet, it's out in June, so you will be one of the lucky few that get their paws on it early (geddit? Like polar bear paws. I kill myself with my hilariousness).

Brrr!

Laurie designs awesome fabric. This is technically a Christmassy line, but so unlike any other Christmassy line I've seen before. There's nothing that really screams Christmas about it, except the red and green, and the polar bears hint towards winter. The lacy doily print looks like snowflakes, but really wouldn't look out of place all year around. And the retro Scandi looking flowers are just awesome.

manyhandsfull3

So, for your chance what do you need to do?

Heck, just leave a comment. I'm not one for hoop jumping. Maybe tell me what you'd make with it, or which of Laurie's fabrics do you love best? I'm rather fond of her newest line, Next Stop London. Maybe that's because I'm English? I've got a pile of that waiting to be made into some gifts for my roomies at the Fat Quarterly retreat (that gave the game away, didn't it? It's ok - they don't read my blog, I'm almost sure of it. They're sick to death of me on a daily basis via email, so they sure as heck don't want to listen to my droning on over here as well).
So there you go - leave a comment, just the one, for a chance to win the FQ bundle. Make sure there's a way to contact you in the comment too, and I'll let the random number generator pick a winner in one week (Tuesday May 8th)


Giveaway closed!!!

Good luck!

ok, I'll say something...you kill me with your hilariousness!

Donna said...

I have some of her llama right now - love that guy! I'm waiting for Brrr to hit the shops, so I can add more bears to my stash. I loved them in the orange and pink, too that she did on her easy site. This quilt is great with the hand prints! What a nice gift.

Jill said...

This is seriously adorable fabric! I would love to make a winter quilt....

Amy said...

Ohh, I would love to make a quilt for my polar bear loving daughter out of Brrr! At 10 months, the child adored her big stuffed Kringle bear, and now at 26, she supports them with her hard-earned, teacher's salary.

Mary W Quilts said...

Polar bears are the best! I love them. Fierce but nurturing. Thanks for the giveaway. Marty. :-))

Addibrae said...

I'm not sure what I'd make with it. I think I'd probably do some sort of Christmas project.

Vicki said...

Love the colours in the fabric line, but the polar bears are just the best! Don't know what i would make but it would be fun to find out if i was lucky enough to win! thanks for the chance!

I love all of Laurie's fabrics. My favorite is Modern Whimsy though. I'd love to get a hold of some of that. Budget just doesn't allow right now though. Thanks for the chance at some Brrr!

Polar bears have been my favorite animal since I was little! I'd love to have a quilt made out of this fabric...

Emma said...

I LOVE the Brr! Bears - so great and such a fab Christmas line. I'd make my daughter's first Christmas quilt if I won (she'll be two by then so might appreciate her own Christmas quilt!) Thanks for the giveaway, I love following your blog. I'm an English transplant to NY (cue Sting song) & your resoundingly English tone always makes me smile. E x

Allegory said...

Oh man. I'm so crazy desperate for this line. I wanna make a quilt (prolly from my great new book ;) ) And oddly enough, I want to make a skirt. With those snowflakes. No pattern. I just want a snowflake skirt.

Melissa said...

granny squares

Jennyroo said...

I agree, it isn't overly Christmas-y or even overly winter-y for that matter! It is a gorgeous fabric line. What might I do with it if I were a lucky winner.... hmmmmmm. A new quilt top definitely but I still need to figure out which pattern would be perfect to showcase these prints.

natalie christensen said...

I don't know what I would make yet but I love all of the beautiful colors! May 8th is my 13 year anniversary maybe its a lucky day for me .

Amy said...

I love this fabric! I can think of several Christmas gifts that I would make from this....

Hi! I think I like this line best of all Laurie Wisburns... I would make a quilt for a little girl. What I like is that it's not girly and not too cute! Thanks for the giveaway!

Kelly said...

Love this line, I would make a winter quilt for the kidlet with his own paw prints on it :)

Lynz said...

Make stuff with it? Nonono, I think I'd just stack it up and stroke it for a while! And then lick it. And the, MAYBE, think about a Christmassy quilt.

Eva said...

My paws would be very happy to get hold of some Brrr!!! ;-) I have to say that this line is my favourite of Laurie Wisbrun's so far, although the Llamas are a very close second!

Sarah said...

Oh memememememememe pick me pick me!!! Polar bear crush big time.

bec said...

Gorgeous! I cans see lots of Xmassy delights, plus some during the year projects!

ibs102(at)hotmail(dot)com

Danielle said...

Bahahaha I just love those polar bears - every single one of them. My kids would adore them too. You know those animal hats with joined on scarf with mitten ends to look like paws? We have a polar bear version of that - so cute.

Karen said...

Hi Katy
I love this Burr line & the Next Stop London looks great too...but my all time fav is still tufted tweets...its funky, fun & whimsical all at the same time...
Thanks for a great giveaway & looking forward to the FQR :)

highwaycottage said...

Me,me,me,me,me! I would so love some Brrrr. Totally love this line with the cute polar bears. I'd make a cute coin quilt to snuggle up on the couch with this winter. It's just starting to get cold now down here in the southern hemisphere.

Montseta said...

Terrific giveaway! I would probably make a non christmassy quilt for my godddaughter!

embracingitall said...

How gorgeous is her fabric! I make Christmas stockings every year, but try to stay away from traditional fabrics if I can. This line is perfect. Jacinta

Whim Of Iron said...

Great Colors. Good for the holidays but not too cloying.

Claire said...

Oh please pick me Katy! I have to have this fabric - I just L.O.V.E. it. Heck I'd sell my kids to get my hands on some of this. Even better, I'd give away a kidney just to have some. Now that's dedication...or pure madness.

Charlotte said...

I'd put the polar bears to one side for a while until I'm ready to make Xmas tree decs, the rest I might try pairing with some Summersville to see how that looked

Dolores said...

OK, just hand it over.

I just noticed the hands around the quilt, love that idea. I'm a girl scout leader and enjoy making thank you gifts for the other leaders from the girls. I have two weeks and 5 inch blocks with names on them, haven't nailed down a good idea yet.

safieh said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! This is definitely my kind of Christmas line and I love the polar bears. This is one of my favorite lines of Laurie's, but I am partial to the llamas and donkeys she has done before!

Vicki in MN said...

Awesome fabrics, they would make a child a wonderful quilt!

Mama Spark said...

HI Katy, *waves from across the pond* I love BRRR and would love to win some of it. I like her Llama line and would love to see RK pick that line up as well.

Fun! I'm usually not much of a Christmas fabric fan, but this looks so un-christmasy that it's perfect :) Not sure yet what I'd make with it!

I am loving the London fabric too, would make fantastic curtains for a child's room. If I won this though I would make an advent calendar for my daughter as I made one for her brother last year and I don't think they will share.
