Monday Mania!!! A great giveaway from Mr. February, Parson Gray

It's that time again.  Now that you've gotten to know Parson Gray a bit, it's time for you to tell us if Mr. February were to wander into your life, what would you do with it . . . oh I mean, the fabric of course. David is itching for you to see his fabrics in real life and to combine his totally on- trend colors into something spectacular. Now we want to give you the opportunity by giving away six one yard cuts of his new fabric Curious Nature to six random commentators.  Follow us and grab a friend or two to sign on. This is just the second of 12 different Designer Showcase features for this year, so much like the lottery you have to be in it to win it!  Tell us, by Sunday, February 19th, what would you do with a little bit of Parson Gray . . . the fabric of course! Winners will be revealed here Monday, February 20. Best Blogger TipsShare/Bookmark

missjuli65 said...

I just love the Curious Nature/Parson Gray line of fabric. Of course I would, being a big fan of Amy Butler! I would love to do an entire room with this interesting & modern fabric. Sofa, chairs, pillows curtains. I also can envision some awesome handbags, totes and some very chic suits and sleek dresses. Think early 60's!

Sunnybec said...

As my stash is so small I would add this to my stash...it needs as much help as it can get!!! Linda

Handsome fabric; incorporate it into a quilt, of course ;>) Thanks for chance to win! Rhonda

memmens said...

I've been waiting for this line to come out, I'd love to sew more for my husband and I think this line might be just right for him. Can't seem to find a UK store that will be stocking so will have to order from the US :-(
I've shared this giveaway on my facebook page which in hindsight might have been a bad move!

Caillean said...

Oops, first one never wins.
But if I could I would do a plus quilt, I think the dark/light contrast in this collection is just right for it.

Amorette said...

this fabric is perfect to stitch up a baby boy quilt for parents with a modern aesthetic. they have a great minimalist look without sacrificing visual interest.

Meredith Daniel said...

OH my gosh. I would make an awesome quilt for the man in my life!

Jen said...

I've been waiting for these fabrics since I first heard about them. I'm dying to make a quilt out of them.

Cheri said...

My husband has always encouraged my sewing but not until he saw David's amps covered with Curios Nature did he really get excited...so, frustrated rock star that he is, we will be stealing David's idea and covering ancient amps with this great fabric. Thanks for this great opportunity to win some fabulous fabric.

Gwen said...

I love this neutral color scheme! It is so calming.. If I won, I think it would be the perfect fabric to make a lap quilt for my hubby's "man cave"! Thank you for the chance to win! I always look forward to your new posts! :-)

grapes and hearts said...

I'd sew a little something for my husband! A scarf, a little organizer for his car (for documents, snacks, etc.). I just love David Butler's first fabric collection, he did a great job, didn't he!? Thanks for the chance to win some of his awesome fabrics!

Leslie C said...

It would definitely be part of a new quilt/throw I need to make for my husband... something wonderfully masculine but soft too...

Lydia said...

I would love to make a quilt out of the mineral quilting line

I want to make a couple floor pillows for my boyfriend's man room. The fabrics are great colors for a manly feature plus add style for any type of room.

Taya@TypeB said...

I would love some fabric! I think I'd make some summer shorts for my nephews and the rest would probably make their way into some quilts or bags!

gill said...

I'd love to make my boy an awesome quilt or playmat with these fabrics. I just love the colors and patterns. Amazing! And with the extras I'd probably make some little toys like a ball and blocks.

Kwiltsfl said...

If I win I would like to make the big sample quilt for the line - named Curious Nature after the line. I have a lot of blues in my home so it would fit right in! ~ Karen Harris

I love this fabric collection and can't wait to make a quilt with it. I have lots of ideas crowded in my head but have to get my hands on the fabric to make a design decision. Thanks for the opportunity.

I want to make a quilt for my husbands PhD Grad. I think this would be the perfect fabric for that quilt.

Doris said...

My brother-in-law is designing his bachelor pad (he buried his wife two years ago after 24 blessed years of marriage). I am wanting to make him a quilt for his new home, and I think this fabric would be just the right jumping off point--masculine, strong and yet, soothing and calm.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Cheryl said...

I'd like to make a masculine lap quilt with Parson Gray fabs for the man in my life.

Cristina said...

I would make a quilt for my fiance'. He loves these colors, and it is so hard to find guy friendly fabric that girls like too!

Btw love the collection, when can I buy it in the UK?
Wilma

Solange said...

I love this masculine line and will make a quilt for my son. I have been waiting for a long time to find the perfect fabric and this is it! Thank you for the opportunity!

Jennie P. said...

I love this line. I'd want to make it into a quilt for my best friend or possibly some home decor like throw pillows. She has this kind of color scheme in her condo. Then again, maybe I'd keep it all for myself. :)

LeiJolie@blogspot.com said...

Thanks for a chance to win a fabric giveaway. Love the colors and designs in your line.
I would make a wall hanging quilt featuring the native Hawaiian short eared owl which is becoming scarce in the wild. And if there's any leftover fabric I would like to embellish a denim jacket.

RingaRingaRosie said...

A close friend is expecting a baby boy soon and is VERY anti cutesy so this would be great for that.... Or may be I could keep it for me...... :)

Petalbags said...

I'm your random commentator!

Lawana said...

these are such fabulous shades... I love them all... I find it hard to find nice gray prints. I want to use my prize fabric to finish out my sewing room ... machine covers and chair covers matched with bold blues

HouseMama Tess said...

I would love to make a quilt and some pillows for one of our couches and my husband and son. It's great to see some fabric that's definitely masculine but still so fresh and versatile!

Carolyn said...

I would make a quilt for my wonderful husband who just helped me drop off my car at the body shop. (Car vs post - post won.)

Angie Stevens said...

I love these fabrics individually, but they're not exactly "me" together. They would look great in my parents' family room, though! They need some new pillows.

Anonymous said...

I am hoping that it won't be too long before Curious Nature is available in the UK. I would love to make a man quilt with it.

Kelly said...

I would love to make a duffle bag for my hubby. And a quilt. And recover my chairs...you get the idea xxx

Jan said...

I've been dying to make the Curious Nature quilt pattern, ever since I saw it. I'd make it for sure, if I won!

Rebeckah Austin said...

Wow great combination! I would defiantly make a laptop/netbook/iPad case for my Hubby and maybe one for my brother. These would also make some great pieced book covers.

Violet said...

I would love to make a duvet and pillow shams with it for my bed! I love the colors and geometric designs- something my hubby would also approve of!

Colleen said...

Love this fabric! I think I would make some pillows first, and maybe some roman shades. I would also like to make a quilt.

sewfunbymonique said...

I would love to make some things for my son~ I'd like to try some ties and possibly the vest I saw on Parson Gray's fb page as well as a manly quilt!

Ariane said...

Quilt for my dad! I've been waiting for the perfect "manly" fabrics, and these are beautiful.

Victhor Viking said...

AWESOME! I love the patterns and colors!

Mirja Marshall said...

It would be perfect for a quilt for my dad!

Shae said...

I make crowns for little girls and it is so hard to find nice fabric for boy crowns. I would make some crowns or recover my couch pillows.

J said...

This is the one fabric line that will make me break my 'no buy' vow...love it. I would love to make a quilt for my college-age son who's tastes have changed to a more sophisticated look. The fabric in Curious Nature definitely lend themselves to large cuts, not itty-bitty pieces.

Heidi said...

So many ideas come to mind but I would really like to make a messenger bag out of some Parson Gray:D

Katie Sews said...

Oh! The possibilities...

I would use this fabric to make American Doll clothing to donate as an act of kindness- these AG clothes were also used as an auction item to raise money for the Westie Foundation of America ... I also would love to make pillows to us [and doll size] ... am also learning quilting and these colors are perfect since I'm also learning how to select complimentary colors.

All the best,

frozenMandMs said...

Pajama pants for my husband would look great since this is a very masculine line.

aqua said...

I am planning on sewing a spring coat out of a collection of these fabrics. It will be something like a knee-length "swing" type coat with a belt across the back and a large collar. Big round buttons on the front and a silky lining. Can hardly wait!

Anonymous said...

I have loved this beautiful fabric and its sophisticated prints since the moment I layed eyes on it. I have a couple of projects in mind...colors fit so well into my decor! Pick me, pick me!

Sarah ritchie said...

I desperately need a quilt for my bed. This fabric would be the perfect fit. I get inspired by the fabric before the pattern.

C. said...

My husband has been begging for a non-girly quilt forever! This would be great! christina112358 at gmail dot com

Corinnea said...

I would love to make a quilt with this line! I follow this blog.

Cecilia said...

I would make my son in law a "man" quilt. :-)

Threads astray said...

19 year old son, a chilled musician, with a funky edge to style, this fabric would be great in a quilt for him. You don't come across very often a wonderful range as this for men.

Tamie said...

I would love to play with this new line of fabric. Into a quilt it would go. Thanks for the giveaway.

pippablue said...

Oooh! I would love to make a manly quilt for my manly man...lol!

So excited to design a new bag for this material.

Rachel Jersey Cordelia said...

My husband walks around like Adam, with only a fig leaf. He desperately needs clothing and I would like to see Parson Gray every night of the week. My solution is to make seven new pairs of boxer shorts!

Dianne Mitzel said...

I follow you, I can see the Parson Gray fabric in a man's quilt..thanks for the chance..

One Little Thread said...

Definitely a "manly" quilt, cushions, or a funky laptop bag

Alexandra P. said...

This is my favorite fabric line! I would make a dress with it and a skirt. And a quilt... (and maybe something for my husband too, if he's lucky...)

elaineridley said...

Well if I was lucky enough to win some Parson Gray fabric I would make a case to hold my crochet hooks!

Would love to make something for my husband - it looks manly

Heather A said...

I'm just about to get going on a quilt for my 22 year old son. These fabrics would be PERFECT! Masculine fabrics are a little harder to find so I really appreciate this manly sensibility.

lahuitrefrite said...

I'd love to do a Negroni shirt for my husband...and probably a dress for me. These fabrics rock.

Julierose said...

Hi, I am making an english paper pieced hexagon wall hanging and would use them to outline the shapes....lovely colorways...Julierose

Sue Nelson Yates said...

It is fate, just as I was planning a quilt for my teenage son, I found it...Curious Nature as a striped quilt in the greys blues and highlights of green, and plain deep steel blue (manatee). It will be perfect. My son Billy saw the swatches on line and he agrees, it was meant to be! Can't wait to start.

sue said...

Hi thank you for this wonderful giveaway. I would love to get my hands on some fabric from Mr February. I am working on a range of accessories, bags and PDA covers at the moment and these fabrics would make such a contrast to those I am using at the moment.

Patti said...

Wonderful array of design and colour. I would use it in a quilt for sure, and I'd love to make a bag with it as well. Thanks for a great giveaway.

karen said...

i think i would make something for my son. A modern, masculine quilt.
Thanks for the opportunity!!

Suanne said...

This fabric would be perfect to make new pillows for my son's sofa

Marcia W. said...

I would make a manly quilt for my brother with some fabric used for my hexie flowers in a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. Thanks for the chance to win some of Mr. February's Curious Nature fabric collection.

Gill said...

These fabrics would make a fabulous picnic quilt!

Patty said...

I love this new line of fabric!

What great fabric for a man's quilt. I would donate the fabric (if I win) to my group, World of Charity Stitching, where we make lap quilts for senior citizens.
