Alison Glass Big Blog Tour + GiveAway

Sep 30, 2013

When Alison Glass asked me to participate in her Big Blog Tour - celebrating her 74 new fabrics - over this summer/fall, of course, I said Yes!  I have loved working with her Lucky Penny collection for the Sisters' Ten BOM.  Her newest collections, Sun Print and Clover Sunshine, are so vivid and saturated with color, I just want to add them all to my stash.

Get a load of this....  it's Sun Print's Corsage print.  In CLEMENTINE.  Don't you love it?  It's oh so wonderful for autumn right now.  But it's just a hip color for all year around too.  Orange is the new black, right?

I decided to change things up and bit and try sewing a pair of pajama pants.  I used Noodlehead's pajama pant tutorial and a pair of my own (knit-seems-to-be-the-problem) pj pants as a base for the pattern.  Oh my!  Quilters and roughing-it garment sewing don't mix!  The pj pants I made are gorgeous - but I couldn't even get them half way up my thigh.


Here they are modeled on our babysitter for the boys.  She's 12.  They fit her nicely... :)  (Thanks so much for modeling E!)


I love this pant design.  There is a faux drawstring in the front; elastic and shirring in the back.  What a fab look.


Corsage in Clementine is meant to be paired with Carolyn Friedlander's Architextures, Topo in Orange.  Perfect.



Want to win some Sun Print yourself?  Be sure to enter the GiveAway at the end of the post.  You will be entered to win 2 1/2 yards of Alison's fabric and the Color Plus Quilt Pattern shown below.




And don't forget to enter the HUGE GiveAway at Alison's blog - she's giving away a crazy 74 fat quarters!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Sun Print Feathers is my favorite. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The sun print is great and love the pj pants. I know knit to woven patterns do not translate over well so next time check for that. They are so cute on your babysitter though.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love the feathers prints and the bike path prints. They are a tie in my opinion. Love both.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've just started adding some orange fabrics to my stash. It's not a color I'm drawn to, but it really adds some zest to a quilt!

    tstanulis@mac.com

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the quilt pattern! And the fabric. It is coordinated but not matchy matchy. I watched your Sisters Ten BOM and really wished I could participate.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  40. I like the party streamers, they make awesome blenders!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I really love all the text colors and so far I think the black on black is going to end up as background for a lot of fun stuff, but when the corsage ships for the fabric club and I get to see the colors in person, I'm pretty sure the olive and plum are going to make it into a lot of things for a long time!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I like them all but today my favorite is the text prints. So that is why I have been drawn to orange lately...it's the new black! Thank you for sharing! anglanouette at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  63. The text prints are excellent, but I really like the feather prints.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Love the feather fabric - and the pattern! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love clover sunshine favorites in pink - so sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh, no! So sad that they don't fit! Maybe you can exchange pjs for babysitting? :)

    I am liking the text fabrics. I want to try making a quilt with light yellow printed on white for a background.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love the turquoise and orange sun prints.

    ReplyDelete
  68. The P.J. pants are fantastic and I love the colors and fabrics you chose. Im sorry they didn't fit you though. It's hard to choose just one favorite of Alison's new prints (it's like asking me which candy bar I like in the Hershey Fun Size variety bag)! They are all beautiful and versatile in their own way, but twisting me arm right now I would choose the Corsage. The color on color is really my thing right now.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Loving the text prints, especially in indigo!

    ReplyDelete
  70. so......my first thought was damn, look at her abs:). so jealous, then I read on and saw it was a 12 year old.....your abs are amazing too by the way:).

    ReplyDelete

    1. Ummm, I've had 3 kids. 3 kids NOT = amazing abs. :)

  71. So hard to choose..I love them all.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Party Streamer is my favorite..I'd love to use Dahlia to make a dress for my pink-loving daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Pajama pants are hard. I made a pair for my husband one year for Christmas and he split them at the crotch the second time he wore them. Turns out, I had used the same pattern piece for front and back when there were supposed to be 2 different pieces!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Def party streamers in gold. I could do a lot with that.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I love the corsage and the text. They are all great!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'm a sucker for all things text but I'm rather smitten with the feathers too! I think I would faint if I won the 74 FQ prize at AG's blog! Heading over there next :-)

    And such a bummer that the pj pants only fit 12 year olds! So adorable though! Pairing it with Architexture was genius!
    (Annnnd Eli keeps asking to play with Gabe - we need to get together soon!)

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love this Clementine color!! Perfect.. I think Pajama pants are made with a stetch fabric such as knit or fleece. They look good on the babysitter..You did a great job.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love the feathers, but this print is fantastic, too.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Great fabric collection, and the pajama pants are sooo cute.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I love the whole collection!! But one of my favorites is Party Streamers in Teal! :) Great pj pants! :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. I really like the Feathers design, but would happily have them all in my collection.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  86. I like the corsage print. I may have to try these pajama pants for my daughter for Christmas. Hope I can adjust them to fit an adult.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I love the feathers! and pretty much all of them. I am terrible at garment sewing, even with a pattern. The sizes are always off and I never make anything that fits well.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Party Streamers in every color! LOVE LOVE LOVE

    ReplyDelete
  89. I love the pants - I have this pattern and have been too scared to try (afraid I'd do all that work and then couldn't get them past my thighs!). So maybe now I take the plunge and give them away if they don't fit!

    ReplyDelete
  90. P.S. My favorite is party streamers in hot pink - what a great print!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Love those PJ pants and I'm totally smitten with the colour. Can't believe I once overlooked orange! I'm a convert to this yummy colour and think Alison's prints make it shine.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Love bike path! Your pj story made me laugh! I did that once too, but had no 12 yr old to give them to!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I can't ever decide between "party streamer" and "x&+". And I really like the new quilt pattern to go with them too!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I love the Feather print, with he text print coming in a close second.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Great PJs! I think my favorite of the prints are the feather and the text.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I love the feathers print, especially in the teal and blue colors. I love your pajama pants! I'm sorry that they didn't fit you!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I'm an orange girl and the name Clementine makes it all the better. I've actually loved a lot of the prints and the feathers are really my favorite at the moment, but I still want that tonal orange!

    ReplyDelete
  101. The more orange I see the more I like it. fran.daoust@yahoo.com

  103. I can see my granddaughter in a pair of those pj pants!

    I like the Clementine also, because I am working on fall/Halloween projects and I need oranges.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I dont think i could only choose one print. But I really like the aqua teal prints.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I really like bike path, but they are all so great.

  110. The teals/aquas are great, even the oranges are luscious and I don't do orange. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I have lately come to love orange partnered with aqua and grey. I would hate to be backed into a corner to pick just one print.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I would love some text print, especially in white

    ReplyDelete
  113. I adore the feathers, and the streamers... Both wonderful patterns and fully saturated in colors which I love!
