Panier de Fleurs Giveaway


I'm packing my bags and getting ready to head on over to the International Quilt Market, held in Salt Lake City May 13-15th.  I'll meet up with the wonderful Moda team and be visiting the French General designer booth on both Friday and Saturday. The Spring Market debuts our Fall 2011 line, Panier de Fleurs, a collection of faded French red, navy blue and grey botanical prints - complete with ticking stripes. This new group of quilting fabric was inspired by the bountiful baskets of flowers and herbs I see at the markets in the South of France.
If your coming to the show, come by and say hello - we'll have a fun giveaway and I'll be bringing my market basket filled with some new ideas, including our county fair prize ribbons and Panier de Fleurs charm bracelet kits. If you can't make it to Salt Lake City, (thousands of quilters and I will miss you!) enter your name in our giveaway and you can choose your prize!

I live in Salt Lake City, but cannot go to Quilt Market. Sadness.

I'd love to win something from you and I just adore your new fabric line! I met you last April in St Louis and had a marvelous time!

Lisnaweary Quilts said...

I would love to go to market, but unfortunately its just a bit too far!(Crossing the Atlantic is the problem!) Your new line looks beautiful, have a great time!

Candace said...

I cannot wait until your new line comes out. I hoard the fabric you come out with as it's perfect for wedding gifts for our South Louisiana friends and family.

Have a safe trip!

Tonya said...

Please enter me. I can't get to Utah, but I haven't met a French General fabric that I didn't love.

Cathi said...

I would love to go to Market, but there's no chance. Your new line looks absolutely gorgeous -- as all your lines are!

Gay said...

Just too far this time. Would love to meet you as I absolutely love your fabric. Tell us all about Market on the blog.

Yes I'd love a chance to win. Wish I could make the this event!

Cassie said...

Maybe someday I can go to a market-but meanwhile, I'll live vicariously through your descriptions. Maybe I'll even be lucky enough to win one of your giveaways!

Vicki K. said...

I wonder how you can keep such great fabric designs coming!! They look just as wonderful as my favorites from before...have a good trip.

donna!ee said...

i just attended the quilt show here in paducah ky "quilt city usa" ...sure wish you would have had a booth here, maybe next year!! :)

Kathy Hatz said...

I would love to attend the quilt show but sadly cannot. Winning a treasure from you would (almost) make up for missing the event.

Lyn said...

I would love to be there, but there's always the local quilt show in San Antonio in September to look forward to!

Margaret said...

Oh I'd so love to win a prize from you! Thanks for the chance!

That would be so much fun to be able to visit Quilt Market, but since most of us can't go you'll just have to tell us how wonderful it is! I've seen some great market pictures posted on blogs, but it does seem to pass way too quickly considering all of the work that goes into it. I'd love to see more of your new fabric line!
