Let's Get Quilting - Peaceful Garden - a 10 pc bundle by designer Mary Jane Carey of Holly Hill Quilt Designs


Do you remember this collection? We recently had an interview with Mary Jane Carey, the designer behind Peaceful Garden on our Designer Spotlight series.

This collection, Peaceful Garden, has been the inspiration fabric for more than one wedding coming up this spring and summer that we know of! It's mostly due to the romance that can be seen in the perfect bouquets and budding blooms. See the whole collection here

This collection just shipped last month and you can find it in quilt shops now. Who will be the lucky one to win this bundle?

I found a single fabric many years ago that was small pink roses with silver trim. They said wedding cake to me over and over. So much so that after buying 1/2 yard, I went back to the store and bought 2 more yards so I knew i would have enough when the time came to use it. I finally used it for the trim of a flower girl's dress and it turned out so sweet. I have just a bit of it left and will probably use it as a anniversary gift of some sort for the couple.

A very pretty line of fabric! thank you!

MoeWest said...

I haven't been sewing for any weddings lately, but some fabric lines do look romantic.

Rina Mason said...

I've never used a collection for a wedding but was so in love with one collection that I purchased a yard of every fabric in it.

Joyce Carter said...

I have never sewn for a wedding. Some fabrics are so lovely, they make me think of them though. Thank you for the giveaway.

Such an elegant line, maybe I should make my daughter's promised quilt before her fifth wedding anniversary!

That hasn't happened to me yet, but I've certainly fallen in love with many a collection. Peaceful Garden is lovely.

I would love to win this collection! I just found out a niece is expecting and it would make such a sweet soft girly baby quilt! (Not sure what she is having yet, but I am hoping for a girl.} :)

I have not been inspired by any fabric for a wedding but if I did I think I would be inspired by this Peaceful Garden.Jane did a wonderful job on all the dreamlike flowers and colors. Great job Jane keep up the good work.

allthingzsewn said...

This is a lovely collection, I have never sewn for a wedding gift before. However if I should win, I have a very dear younglady getting married in May. So there won't be any indecision as to what I'll be doing with this bundle. Thank you for the opportunity to possibly win.

Sandra Walker said...

Oh yes, made my BF a quilt with fabrics I KNEW were made for her for her special day.

Michele T said...

I quilted a gift for a wedding present last summer... it is a gift that commemorates a wonderful occasion for many years!!!

C Murphy said...

I've waited years for a beautiful, romantic, totally feminine fabric like this! Reminds me so much of earlier days, sewing pretty little dresses for my then toddler daughter, beautiful memories. I will definitely buy this! It's gorgeous!

Cecilia said...

I haven't made a wedding gift, but this collection is beautiful.

Sherry said...

I haven't been inspired by a collection for a wedding but do remember the fabrics we chose for the bridesmaids dresses I sewed for my sisters weddings years ago were the inspiration for the rest of the decorations. This is lovely fabric.

Beth said...

I've never been inspired to use a fabric for a wedding, although I've seen fabric that was so perfect for a particular bride that it "had" to be made into a quilt for the bride and groom, usually delivered long after the wedding, I'm sad to say.

Karen McMahon said...

I love this collection! My daughter got married 2 years ago, but we would have been inspired by this collection if it had been around then.

Kathy E. said...

I have seen fabric that I knew would be perfect for a wedding, but since my kids aren't ready to jump into marriage yet (I wish they were!), I pass it by. Someday!

Bonnie58 said...

Beautiful fabrics. I haven't seen a fabric yet that I couldn't visualize as part of a wedding

Vicki H said...

I haven't sewn anything for a wedding yet.

Happy Bug said...

A very pretty fabrics. I am a newbie in quilting and I do not know Mary Jane Carey but it would be awesome to get some of these fabrics to play with my sewing machine :).

Podunk Pretties said...

I've never made a quilt for a wedding gift. But I can see why these fabrics would inspire a wedding quilt, they are very romantic!

Clare said...

Love the fresh spring look of this fabric line. Enjoy the rose`s like bring the garden inside.
Happy Stitching.

Havplenty said...

I had a taupe silk fabric that I knew would be most beautiful for a non traditional wedding dress. I made up the most flattering dress with dangling shells for my aunt and uncle's 20th wedding vows renewal. one of a kind most certainly.

These fabrics are such a soft pretty palette.

Joyful Quilter said...

Perfect fabrics for the first day of spring.

Gena Watters said...

Beautiful!!!

Judi Duncan said...

no, I haven't sewn for a wedding yet...

Victoria said...

I have not sewn *clothes* for a wedding, but have sewn decor - creams/whites and greens seem to provide a beautiful backdrop for any theme.

Ellee said...

Several years ago I sewed 3 flower girl dresses. Th fabric that was provided didn't look very weddingish to me, but the dresses came out nice. I've never seen a bolt of fabric that clearly looked like it belonged in a wedding, but maybe that's just because of the stock available at the quilt shops I patronize. -- soparkaveataoldotcom

Janie said...

I haven't sewn for a wedding, I have made quilts to give to the wedding couple though.

GranChris said...

The roses make me think of weddings that took place in my day. About 25 years ago I saw an orchid design that I thought wow that would be beautiful at a wedding. Tastes change and people don't choose the colors and patterns they once picked.

teachpany said...

This is so pretty! I am actually going to my QBFF's daughter's wedding soon. I plan to make a table runner for the shower, using the colors she's picked for her house and dishes. I do love this collection, though. It would be so pretty for many things. Thanks.

Cathie said...

I have not, but with 4 granddaughters I am sure I will!

Susan L. said...

Yes, I have seen fabrics I thought would be lovely in a wedding quilt. They didn't fit the person I was making it for though, so I used other fabrics. This Peaceful Garden collection is gorgeous!

Stitchin At Home said...

It's been close but not yet. Lovely line of fabrics.

Cheryl Barron said...

Very pretty, and romantic enough to easily be used for a wedding.

This fabric line is so soft and pretty. I can see a bed runner with matching throw pillows on my guest bed.i have not sewn for a wedding in 40 years.

Wendy Burkhouse said...

Not for a wedding but I did walk in my local quilt store early one Saturday morning and fell in instant love with a fabric line. I bought 4 yards of each fabric that day and went back several times for more of it.

mangozz said...

Yes, but I didn't act on it. Instead, I used it for a wedding present. This collection whispers Spring Wedding! Perhaps a quilt for a wedding gift.

LindaV said...

Haven't had a wedding to plan for since I've been quilting! These fabrics would have done beautifully for mine, though, 35 yrs ago, and would still be a beautiful theme today...classic romance!
