Good Hair Day Blog Tour and Giveaway

I am very excited to be one of today's stops on the Good Hair Day blog tour. This new fabric line by Kim Andersson for Windham Fabrics is absolutely adorable - bobby pins, hair bows, products and more! When Kim asked if I would like to make a quilt for her look book last year, I was incredibly flattered and very excited.


I love the saturated colors in this line, especially the blues, pinks and oranges. The prints are whimsical in a very sophisticated way and the coordinating cross-weave solids really made them sing. I made my quilt, Rinse and Repeat, over the course of a week last summer. To highlight the prints, I chose to make a grouping of quarter log cabin blocks laid out on point. The actual "logs" vary in width, giving the blocks more movement, and the quilt has five different quarter log cabin iterations.  Bonus: the peaks at the top and bottom reminded me of a hair comb without being a literal interpretation. The log cabins are sandwiched between two larger cuts of the red and white cross-weave. I just adore this fabric - it the most beautiful coral-pink and so, so soft. I think this gives the quilt a decidedly modern feel with a good nod to a traditional pattern.

You can find the Good Hair Day fabrics in stores currently and I plan on releasing the pattern for Rinse and Repeat as soon as possible. I will definitely keep you updated on the progress as it happens.


Thanks to Windham Fabrics and Kim, I have one 5" charm pack of Good Hair Day to giveaway. The giveaway is open to everyone - US and International readers. To enter the drawing, please leave a comment on this post telling me what your first sewing project is for 2016. I will keep the comments open until Friday, January 15 at 4:00 pm EST. Be sure to stop by the other blogs on the tour to see more amazing projects from this great fabric line and for more chances to win fabric!

I love the quilt and these fabrics are gorgeous. Thank you for the giveaway. My first project for this year is actually left over from last year. I am embroidering a Raggedy Ann and Andy quilt. I only had a few blocks to finish and I wanted to get it done.

Pretty quilt and fabric. My first project for this year is a charity quilt for a little girl. Thanks!

I need to make a baby quilt. Using the preppy the whale pattern.

I am hand quilting a baby quilt with Dr Suess fabric... My project for 2016 is almost done!!

Elizabeth Bolton

I've already done my first project for 2016 - a paper-pieced wall-hanging on mountains, and I machine-quilted for the first time! It's been sent off for a birthday present, and I'm eager to hear how she likes it!
This is a great give-aways - thx!

I made a scrappy baby quilt to start the year. I love your quilt!


What a cute bunch of fabric, would love to win!
I've got 2 quilts to quilt, then I'd like to tackle a tee shirt quilt!


I am working away at some zippered pouches for gifts, then a valentines day themed table runner.


What cute fabric! And your quilt is lovely! My first project will be to finish the quilt I gave my parents for Christmas. I got the top pieces and the sandwich made - but I didn't get the quilting finished... so that will be happening very soon!


My first project is a hexagon quilt (with all those lovely y-seams!)


I'm finishing up a baby quilt as well. And "Rinse and Repeat" may well be my second project of the year!


My first sewing project has been making covers to cover up the library bookcases during the school's book fair. Cutting and hemming 40 yards of fabric. So not fun. I hope to finish this weekend so I can plan a "real" sewing project.


My first sewing project was a log cabin pillow.
Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful fabric!

My first project of 2016 was a set of pillow covers for our new sofa. I'm happy to say they are finished already! I love your quilt!
