"A Flair For Fabric" Blog Hop - Janet Nesbitt


It has been a fun week on the "A Flair For Fabric" Blog Hop! Thanks to all of the blog hoppers so far and to you for following along. You can see the details for the blog hop here and here.

Today we welcome, Janet Nesbitt, to the hop. She is posting on the Henry Glass blog for today.


Janet and the other Henry Glass designers, Dana Brooks, Linda Lum DeBono, Mary Ellen Von Holt and Leanne Anderson,  had a lot of fun meeting everyone at the book signing at Quilt Market a few weeks ago. She is working on some new collections for Henry Glass. All of her beautiful collections can be seen on the Henry Glass website.

[L-R:  Dana Brooks, Linda Lum DeBono, Mary Ellen Von Holt, Janet Nesbitt, Leanne Anderson]

Janet is the special guest today on the "A Flair For Fabric" book tour. Take it away Janet.

"A Flair For Fabric" - A new release!





This book has excellent tips on how to mix fabrics as well as 14 great, wide ranging projects, including:


Posy Pot Heat Bagby Annie Downs, perfect for heating up and putting on your tired shoulder or neck after a day of piecing!


AND
Days Gone Byby Little Quilts which makes me remember my Grandma and the quilts she made for my dolls, although none were nearly as nice as this!


AND
my quilt, Starburst Maple Delight


As well as many more!

When Im piecing, I often use a phrase of my moms its good enough for who its forsince many of, what we might think of as our piecing deficiencies, will either press out, or quilt out, or simply just not be that noticeable after the quilt is completed.  In other words, I dont sweat the small stuff if my seams arent precisely matched and my points pointy!  But color is a different matter and if theres an offending piece of fabric that continues to jump out at me after Ive let it reston the floor over night, then out comes the seam ripper!  But only you can decide what you can live with!  You quilt for your enjoyment, so ENJOY!!  And I know youre absolutely going to enjoy this book!



Another thing you might enjoy as well, is this fabulous prize!!  A bundle of Annie Downs About a Boy About a GirlFabric!! 
All you have to do, is comment here and tell me:

 Do you like to piece with a select number of fabrics, or are you a scrap quilter, or do you swing both ways?“ and you will be automatically entered to win!! Deadline: Friday, November 28, 2014 at midnight. 

And even better, there are lots more days to hop around, pick up additional tips, and enter to win even more fabulous prizes!!  You wont want to miss a day, so check out the schedule below, have fun and thanks for helping us support this worthy cause!

Thanks Janet!



This Monday, Linda Lum DeBono will be talking about "A Flair For Fabric" on the American Patchwork & Quilting Podcast . Tune in at 4 p.m. EST to listen!

Diane McLauchlan said...

The more I read about the book the more I am interested in trying different methods to pick my fabrics. I am thinking I need this book to mix things up and stretch my brain cells when it comes to color.

Carrie P. said...

i swing both ways. sometimes i will start out with a line but i usually end up adding other fabrics

sunny5597 said...

I'm starting to swing both ways. It's a learning process. I would love to win this book. Thanks for the chance. :)

BizyStitches said...

I'm a swinger. But when I do scrap quilts I like to be an organized scrap quilter. Thanks for all the fun.

Joanna said...

In quilting, I swing both ways. That is I like to work with collections because of the balance of colors and prints, but I love my scraps and the yard of this and yard of that that's in my stash. It's fun to put things together from my own stuff.

Renea said...

My favorite is scrap quilting but I do like a controlled quilt also. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Emily C said...

That really depends on my project. Some quilt look better (imo) with a select number of fabrics, while others can go all scrappy and look awesome.

Diane H said...

Precuts make it easy for perfect colour combinations but I also love the fun challenge of a beautiful scrap quilt.

Anonymous said...

I am primarily a scrap piecer, but love to use precuts in the same line. Thanks for the chance for some wonderful fabrics!

Sunnybec said...

Well, I never thought I would say this but I swing both ways!! I am doing granny square quilts using up all my scraps and I am loving them....even the ugly fabric doesn't look as bad. Thanks for the chance.

Cherise Towrr said...

I love everything scrappy! I just love rainbows of color! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Martina said...

I do both, but tend to be more a scrap quilter.

LJ said...

Starburst Maple Delight is a perfect name for your quilt - beautiful. I don't usually do 'scraps' even though I have lots to work with. :) Since color is not easy for me, I quite often default to collections to make it easier.

Dawn said...

I swing both ways, although I really love using scraps, it keeps the results a surprise.

wendy said...

I like to piece with a select number of fabrics, mostly those from collections. Thanks for a chance at the giveaway.

Julie in WA said...

I don't think I have ever used a set amount of fabrics. I just pull and hope I have enough!

Joyce Carter said...

Thank you for the giveaway. I really love scrappy quilts, but I do tend to swing both ways.

GranChris said...

I go both ways but I have a lot of scraps so lately I have been making a lot of scrap quilts.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I'm a scrapper - I love to marry fabric lines to make just the right look.

Lisa Marie said...

I most often use a bunch of different fabrics, It makes it easier to work from my stash and makes the quilts interesting to look at.

Eloise said...

I do both. I love both...

margil56 said...

Sometimes I like a limited palette in a quilt, but I have such a stash overflow that lately I have been doing a lot of scrappy quilts, trying to use up more fabric!

Lori said...

I tend to piece with certain fabrics in mind. I have not gotten into scrappy yet. What a fun looking book. Thanks for a chance

Bella Quilts said...

Janet, thanks for the preview of the beautiful quilts. I start out with a set pallete but immediately think that I need something else, and something else, and something else and before long, its scrappy again!!!

MoeWest said...

I like to select fabrics for my quilts and I use my scraps for smaller projects.

Sarah said...

I'm definitely a scrap quilter! sarah@forrussia.org

Margaret said...

I prefer to use a more controlled pallet, although I am accumulating a lot of scraps and am seeing some scrappy quilts in my future.

eckypucky said...

I swing both ways but tend to scrap more. Such fun!

Mary Jaworski said...

I do better with using a fabric collection, pre-cuts.
I have a lot of scraps, it's hard to wrap my brain around using a lot of fabric choices.
Thank you for the giveaway.

Gill said...

Great quilts!
I swing both ways (here in the UK this expression means something completely different!!)

Deborah said...

Both for me. It depends on what kind of quilt I am making. I just like making quilts!

JANET said...

I'm bad. I pick from my stash, which then am shy of one or two fabrics. I go shopping for those two fabrics and find something I want to use that does not go with the rest. Then the whole palette changes, and the search is on........ Well, you all know the story!

Christie Spanutius said...

I love to work with a set of fabrics that I have picked to go together to make my quilts. If I make a scrap quilt it would have to be fabric colors that blend together. Thanks for the giveaway.

Crickets Corner said...

I swing back and forth between the two. Thanks for the chance.

Rosa said...

I swing both ways .Precuts and bundles make it easy to balance fabrics.Thanks for the fun.

Ann Dunn said...

Well,
I generally purchase a few fabrics and then see what's in my stash which will work. Buying a whole line can be rather expensive.

Leeanne said...

I love Anni's designs, But I am what you call 'a swinger', when I see a fabric range I love I go for it, but I am a scrap lovin' gal too! All quilters know scraps multiply!

Anonymous said...

Mostly I love to sew scrap quilts with lots of colour, combining older fabrics with newer ones.

I'm trying to work with scraps, but I still have to control the colors I use. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of this great book.

Lesley Moore said...

I like to quilt with a limited selection of fabrics and haven't got into scrappy yet - bit it will happen. Thanks for the chance to win

OhioLori said...

Depends on what I am making, and who it's for...but do looooove both ways! Love this book! Definitely is on my Wish List!

I love scrappy quilts! The more fabrics the better! Thank for this great book for such a great cause.

I pretty much pull anything that catches my eye and then try to see how it will work. I always have a huge mess to clean up but I love trying out all fabric! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

sherryberrybim said...

Sometimes I like to work with scraps and sometimes with a line of fabrics.

Linda said...

I work with whatever suits the pattern. I lean towards set amount of fabrics, but also love the scrappy look.

100% SCRAPPY!

I will go both ways; which ever seems to go with the pattern.

barbara woods said...

I do both, just love quilts

Paula said...

I really love scrap quilts and must confess that is what I usually make!

Kristy said...

I'm still relatively new to quilting, but I like using up my scraps from other projects for sure! Thanks for the fun blog hop!

Bob said...

I make scrap quilts because friends are always giving me their scraps. I'd love to get back to using my fabric and choosing the colors but I can't waste all those scraps in those bins!

Cindy Dahlgren said...

I've only recently worked up to having enough scraps to do something with, since I only started quilting a few years ago. I love to use brand new fabrics, as well as the loved scraps I have now. cdahlgren at live dot com

Andrea York said...

I'm pretty new to quilting so I don't have a lot of scraps yet!Give me time and I'll be making scrap quilts too.

Beth said...

I'm much more of a scrap quilter--I almost always have more fabrics in there than the pattern calls for.

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I swing both ways.

KatieQ said...

I find that I bounce between working exclusively with scraps for months at a time and then will work with planned yardage for a quilt or two. I do think that I prefer scrappy quilts best.

Betsy said...

I am a swinger. I use what I have and also what's in the scrap bin.

Barb N said...

I like bundles - saves me time fretting about which fabrics to pick :)

carolann said...

I usually work with one collection but sometimes throw in a renegade or two! carolann427@aol.com

GranB53 said...

I tend to swing both ways now. At one time I really wasn't so much a scrap quilter. Now, out of necessity, I am, and I've learned to love it.

heathquilter said...

I could really use this book to help me with my fabric choices. Used to buy kits and BOMs but have been using scraps, and not always ecstatic with my results! I mean, I like, but not love some of my more recent quilts. Thanks for this opportunity!

Liza S. said...

I like to change things up. I like scrap quilts, but I also enjoy an entire line that coordinates perfectly.

The Victorian Girl said...

I started out just making quilts with a certain number of fabrics, but I've become more scrappy. Thanks for the giveaway.
kellam.susan@yahoo.com

Debra said...

I prefer to work with a line of fabrics. I have a healthy stash of scraps to make several scrappy quilts when I'm ready for the challenge of random.

Vicki H said...

I swing both ways but most of my quilts are scrappy.

Kathy E. said...

What I've quilted so far (and that's not a whole lot), I've been a scrappy quilter, but I recently signed up for a BOM and that uses a selected number of fabrics. I chose to select my own rather than a bundle. I am loving it so far!

Kaye M. tkmattson@hotmail.com said...

For small projects I tend to limit my fabric choices but for bigger projects I love scrap quilts with at least one common denominator to help tie the whole design together.

Farm Quilter said...

I'm a swinger and didn't even know it!!! LOL It depends on the quilt, because I have done my share of both scrappy and limited palette quilts!! Looks like a lovely book - thank you for the opportunity to win it!!

I love to swing both ways...depends on my mood and the project I have in mind...thanks for all you do

Angelia Lanouette said...

As a new quilter I tend to use collections but I love scrappy too....I guess I swing both ways!

Margaret said...

I love to both ways. I like collections because I know they will match but sometimes having a collection makes me think harder about what to make

Meinhardmk said...

I love scraps. I thrive in chaos, so when I randomly pull from my scrap drawer, and randomly stitch to something else. I feel such satisfaction. Then, to balance the chaos, I will put a monochromatic border. I have bought fabric in themes for quilts, but every thing else was random. It I find a pattern I like, go and buy fabric to fit perfectly in my head...I'd lose interest

Annette S said...

I am new to quilting, but love to use scraps so that nothing goes wasted.

Brenda said...

I am more of a scrap quilter because I have a very limited amount of fabric.

I definitely like to quilt with a select number of fabrics. Eventually, I'll be doing some scrap quilts.

I feel more comfortable with a chosen set of fabrics but scrappy does help reduce the stash.

Having only just discovered patchwork I don't have many scraps or much in my stash...but I am saving the left overs as I go along...so, a scrappy quilt here I come! Thanks. Wendy

Susan L. said...

I would have to say I swing both ways. It all depends on the project.

Rosalind Gutierrez said...

Preferably I make quilts with a select number of fabric choices. I use the scraps in another project.

I definitely swing both ways, at least when it comes to fabric!

Cheryl said...

I like to do both depending on the project. But I think I have been more successful with using just a few fabrics -- my one major scrap project I didn't really like how it turned out.

I tend to swoing both ways!

Susan Mulvihill said...

Like others, I swing both ways but these days, I am really focusing on "shopping my stash" so am working on scrappy projects -- I've been discovering all sorts of goodies in my stash that I'd forgotten were in there! Thanks for this opportunity to win.

Judy1522 said...

I like working both ways. It is nice to have a line of fabric to work with as you know that all the fabric goes together, but somethimes it is fun to put together your own fabric combinations.

Julie said...

Because of the cost of quilting fabrics now, I try to use from my stash. I "audition" fabrics for a project and only buy when I need that perfect fabric to complete my project.

Christine M said...

I don't really make very scrappy quilts although I love seeing all the wonderful scrappy quilts around blogland. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

desertskyquilts said...

Definitely scrappy quilter - must be why scraps seem to multiply at my house! I can't remember when I bought coordinating fabrics, let alone an actual designer set! I love your pattern - it was one that stood out to me each time someone showed it. If I don't win the book, I'll have to go buy it. =) Thanks for the chance to win the fabric bundle. AND for not having embedded comment box! I can never comment on the blogs that have one, and most of the ones in this hop do.

Anna @FreshDewDrops said...

I like to piece within a selection so I'm probably a bit scrappy but not too much. Get too scrappy and my eyes seem to have a hard time finding a place to rest.

Anonymous said...

I am starting to swing both ways! The new fabrics encourage people to be creative.

Cindy said...

I have been particular about the fabric I use in quilts but I would like to become comfortable just using scraps! I need to start practicing do that and see how it goes!

Cindy said...

I would like to learn to use more of my scraps to make my quilts. Up to this point I've been particular about the fabric I use in my quilts.

phegland said...

I like both types of projects, but scrappy quilts are my very favorite.

Jessica said...

I am pretty new to quilting. I mostly stick with a set number of fabrics. However, that could be due to the fact that I don't really have a stash of fabric or scraps yet.

Shawna said...

I am a scrap quilter.

Kathy H said...

I usually like to use a select number of fabrics but have been trying to get into more scrappiness.

Gloria said...

I tend towards scrappy but controlled scrappy. (Except when I do something from all the scraps that are on the floor around my sewing chair, when anything goes!)

Barbara said...

I have to quilt with a certain selection, and most times the fabric is all from the same line. As much as I admire many scrappy quilts, the perfectionist in me prevents me from being comfortable enough to tackle one.

Dana Gaffney said...

I'm all over the place, I like to piece, but when the scraps start taking over I make a few scrappy quilts, it's a never ending cycle :)

I have primarily been a scrappy quilter as I didn't think I had the skill yet to move to a controlled fabric line. I have a new sewing machine and I am now ready for more controlled fabric selections. I think.

I don't really like scrappy quilts, so the only precuts I buy are occasional fat quarter bundles.

Love a good scrappy quilt, but have been known to use a whole line of a fabric.

Terri Hauge said...

I can be either a controlled quilter or an all over the place scrapper! Sometimes I have to make a controlled quilt to make more scraps for my scrappies! I haven't used a single line since Thimbleberries Club quilts many years ago-still have a few to finish then the rest of the fabric will go into the scrappies!

Jean said...

I love scrap quilts but find them just as hard, if not harder, to do as I still want to exercise control over the scraps!!
