When Kate Conklin offered to design one of her modern quilt patterns featuring my Donkeys in Wellies fabrics, I of course jumped at the offer! Kate's patterns are wonderfully fun and the design that she created for my Donkeys and Wellies fabric is no exception.
The Wonky Donkey Quilt (tee hee Kate...love the name!) follows a "stack and slash" method and the quilt instructions makes creating this quilt look really easy and like quite a bit of fun! The quilt only needs 1 yard of my fabric (1/2 yard of Donkeys and 1/2 yard of Boots) and features lots of solids to show off the patterns. (Kate's pattern lists the solids she used in her sample quilt.) I think the quilt is just aborable and lovely. Well done Kate!!
And you will never believe this in a million years... Kate's sister has a donkey! Yes, a donkey! And his name is Fizzy. Could you die at how cute that is? And Kate took some great pictures of Fizzy modeling the quilt. Squeal!! Ridiculously Ridonkulously Cute!
Now to the free fabric!!
Kate and I are each hosting a giveaway. Two lucky winners will each receive Kate's Wonky Donkey pattern and a yard of my fabric (1/2 yard of Donkeys and 1/2 yard of Wellie Rain Boots). Kate and I will each draw a winner on June 24th.
So to enter for your chance to win here on my blog, just tell me about any other colors you might like to see Donkeys and Wellies in. Who knows what I might be able to cook up!
And make sure you head over to Kate's blog for your second chance to win. Best of luck!
p.s. I am running a bit low on Donkeys and Wellies fabric but have a WHOLE bunch on order. Although my etsy store says I have stock, it may take me 2-3 weeks to be able to ship any Donkeys or Boots fabric. (Except for the giveaway winners who I have been saving some yardage for!!) So, I’m super sorry for the delay but it will be worth the wait!! Spoonflower is printing the fabric as fast as they can and I'll ship orders out as fast as I can the fabric here!
Couldn't leave you without a few more Fizzy pictures and a reminder that the 15% off Urban Circus sale in my store ends on 6/27!
