These fabrics would give a whole new meaning to winter blues!!! Beautiful!!!

Joyce Carter said...

I live in the South where it is pretty warm so when it does turn cold I do get the mid-Winter blues. These fabrics are so pretty and would definitely chase away the blues. They would look really pretty in a quilt. Thank you for the giveaway.

I keep the winter blues away by quilting with beautiful fabrics like these! I have some green batiks I could probably combine with these for another quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

Allison said...

Such gorgeous colors! I love jewel tones. These are right up my alley.

Pauline Perry said...

Touch wood I don't get winter blues - I am usually always ready to sew something. I do, however, get fed up with getting one cold after the other during the winter season!

Heather Norris said...

Beautiful blues!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

When you live in the NorEast - you are here for the 4 seasons and appreciate each for it's own design on your creativity. These remind me of balmy beaches and watching baby sea turtles scurry for their first swim (that always amazes me).

Denise Losczyk said...

Sometimes, when its cloudy for days!

Victoria said...

I love batiks and these blues are wonderful.

Michele T said...

Well, hello gorgeous bundle of blue batik!!! My favourite colour and fabric type!! I would make a dreamy quilt for our master bedroom!!! Fingers crossed🤞🏻

You bet I do! Sewing with my Happy Light next to me always helps to give me a mental lift. January has been sooo gloomy.

Jessica Rice said...

Beautiful!

No, I don't get the winter blues. As long as I have fabric to play with, I am fine!

Sandy A

JoyceLM said...

No, I don't get mid-winter blues. If the weather is too bad (which doesn't happen that often here in NC), I have fun playing with EQ. Thanks.

Tamara Isaacs-Smith said...

No winter blues, love winter, the fabrics are lovely, would use in a quilt I am planning for my daughter's boyfriend.

OhioLori said...

Don't get Winter Blues...don't love the cold & gray snowy days...but Spring comes eventually! :D Love the extra time to be inside & sewing/quilting, or baking! :)

These fabrics are GORGEOUS!!! Thank you for chance to win your Give-a-way! :D

Cheryl said...

Yummy! My current favorite colors! This is a wonderful give a way; some lucky quilter will be very happy (I certainly will be if I win!)!

mangozz said...

Sometimes, but this fabric would cheer me up.

Lori said...

I do get the winter blues. In fact I am one of those people that if I don't have lots of light, I become seriously depressed. Nothing I can do to help it. So lots of light and lots of sewing.

Marti Morgan said...

This is one beautiful line of fabric - know just how I would use them!!!

LINDA FICKLING said...


LOVELY....

Booking Lost Time said...

No winter blues. I get the winter "not going to do that" instead, too many books to read.

Donna Gibson said...

Gorgeous! Awesome give away.....

GranChris said...

Winter blues, yes that's me. I should buy one of those lights. Instead I moved from Fla to NC. Now I think I need to move further South. Oh well I just keep sewing and hoping for Spring.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Beautiful grouping! Yes, I am always looking forward to spring as winter is kind of dreary. Thanks for the fun!

Bee Rutherford said...

Such beautiful shades of blue. My favourite colours in these fabrics. Thank you Henry Glass

Gingerchook (Jean Rutherford) said...

Love the colours in this palette. Can envision some beautiful blue creations coming up

Jennifer Essad said...

not so much living in Florida, I get the blues over rainy days though

Celeste Delostrinos said...

We don't get much sun in Seattle in winter, or any other time of the year for that matter, but that gives me the perfect excuse to stay indoors and sew.

teachpany said...

This would be a great collection to use for a new lap quilt for my brother and SIL, who just moved and got a new blue couch. I do occasionally feel blue during the winter, but find a snow day, some hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies give me the motivation to get to my sewing room and have fun. Once I'm there, it's difficult to be blue (unless that's the color I'm working with). Thanks for the fun!

Cathie said...

Oh these look so yummy. I'd love an opportunity to work with them.

Cathie said...

Oops, sent that one too soon. Yes I do get the blues but working with beautiful fabric helps chase it away.

Barbara on the Eastern Shore said...

I need to chase the winter blues away

Gill said...

Gorgeous colours - I'd make a picnic quilt!

I get the mid-winter blues. This year I am fending them off with a BOM club. Keeps me excited and busy!

I don't really get the winter blues. Our winters in Virginia are usually pretty mild. The colors in this bundle are fabulous and would cheer up anyone who might be feeling blue.

quilter said...

I don't usually get the winter blues, winter is when I do moat of my quilting!

Jennifer Whitney said...

Chase those blues away with sewing sewing sewing. The batiks would be a beautiful water quilt of some sort...hmmmmm

lalaluu said...

Weather is too nice in Houston for the mid-winter blues. It'd be more like the mid-that-one-January-day-it-was-actually-cold blues. ;P

G&G said...

Love those batiks! They would sew much help to chase the winter blues !

Brandy Pettit said...

I don't usually get the winter blues, winter is my favorite time of year. In fact, it's snowing at my house today and is so beautiful!

Yes! But I find that decorating with blue quilts helps. Thanks.

Lynda said...

Not really an annual thing, but this year has been quite trying so far and we are only one month in!

Lisa Marie said...

Winter doesn't bring me down much except if the roads are too bad to make it to my fitness classes -- I do notice a change in my mood if I don't get out to exercise and see friends in class. Working with beautiful fabrics can also enhance my mood.

Those are my colors! I should win :)

When the temperatures drop to -40° I am not happy, but otherwise I try to keep active with cross country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking to chase the blues away!!! Love this gorgeous bundle of batiks💙💚!!

Diane Bascle said...

This is a Magnificent pool of colors. I would feel like I dipped my toes into a tropical blue lagoon!

Havplenty said...

What beautiful bundle of coolness. I am one who loves Winter. Really. I love snow also. But with that said, I do get somewhat restless in the Winter because of too many sunless days. I find myself wanting the sun to come out and visit more. But boots, coats and pretty gloves I love. :)

Best way for me to beat the mid-Winter blues is to bundle up, take a short brisk walk, then return sew something in bright colors.
