The Winner of Cocoon and our next Spring feature is . . .

Our Spring has sprung four days of giveaways continues.  Today is day 2.  Congratulations to Sue of Springfield, IL who was randomly selected as the winner of six, one yard cuts of FreeSpirit Cocoon Voile by Valori Wells.

Rowan Gypsy by Amy Butler Stash

Now, today let's take a look at one of our sister brands, Rowan.  We know this is a FreeSpirit blog, but we gotta' brag a bit about our Rowan brand and the re-launch of Gypsy Caravan from Amy Butler's Stash (Cottons, available mid-April).  Amy dug into her own stash and re-released 24 original prints from her very first fabric collection, Gypsy.

Perhaps your stash is already overflowing, or maybe you can make room for a little Gypsy in your life. Amy's hope is that Gypsy will awaken the gypsy in your creativity . . .  much like Spring awakens so many beautiful things.
It's your turn.  Again comment today only to be randomly selected to win six, one yard cuts of Rowan Gypsy Caravan by Amy Butler Stash. Come back tomorrow to see if you are the winner and our next featured fabric.

I am really excited about the re-release of Gypsy Caravan - I haven't been quilting long enough to have caught the original release :o)

Spring is a great time for renewal of the soul and fabric stash! Amy Butler is such an inspiration for creativity and example of what you can accomplish when you believe in yourself and your creations! Love ALL her fabrics!

I'm a big fan of Amy Butler. Am working on a duvet cover with a mix of her prints.

Kathleen said...

I think I love the fabrics you are featuring today more than yesterday! Gorgeous. So many projects swimming through my head. Happy first day of Spring!

Cynthia said...

I would always have room for some more Gypsy :)

Pat said...

This fabric reminds me of the cooler, wetter aspects of spring: skies are gray, the colors of the flowers are a little muted. The anticipation of the coming storm, or that bundle of new fabric that should be coming in the mail. New project time!!

misspicklerose said...

I'm just getting into quilting, but have loved Amy Butler's designs for a long time. I have her Style Stitches book and would love to have some of her beautiful Gypsy fabrics to teach some of my friends how to make bags. Yay spring!

Savannagal said...

Spring is the most exciting time of the year. Life awakens everywhere. While I dearly love the hot summer months, spring is so much fun especially after a long cold winter.

Anonymous said...

Spring always renews my spirit. There is something about the Spring air and sunshine that awakens our creative juices. It breathes new life into my soul and the "free spirit" in me flourishes.

That Gypsy Caravan is so pretty!

selleck said...

I love all Amy Butler fabric and adding six more yards to my stash would be heaven. Thanks for the giveaway.

Pattyskypants said...

I don't remember Gypsy Caravan at all, but the patterns are very 60's. Right now I'm working with some of my Charm scraps; I think it would be great fun to blend them, don't you? xxoo Patty

em-squared said...

Spring is the time when I am completely amazed that the bulbs I planted actually bloom.

Marcia W. said...

As I missed the original Gypsy Caravan, it would be grand to win some of the re-release. Perhaps a Gypsy themed skirt for me and some for a lovely Amy Butler quilt. These fabrics are very pretty. Thank you for the giveaway chance.

Marie Dusing said...

Spring, for me, is a time of renewal. I love planning gardens, smelling the wonderful flowers, and being able to walk outside without getting smothered by humidity. Usually it is also a time for me to re-evaluate my sewing projects and to set goals for what I want to accomplish in the next few months.

Ginger said...

Can't wait to get some of this fabric.

I love all of Amy's fabrics but I would love some of her Gypsy Caravan fabric. I'm already dreaming up gorgeous dresses for my 1 year old baby girl.

brookscuit said...

Spring means getting ready for summer since I live in a fairly warm area. I knit and sew short sleeved tops and summer dresses and skirts.

Periwinkle Paisley said...

Love that peachy-paisley. I can see a little girl's dress out of that.
