giveaway: fat quarters

i love pretty patterns. if i could, i would have a big walk-in closet stacked full of folded up fat quarters sitting there nice and tidy, sweet and special, color coordinated and happy to be alive, just waiting for their big debut. my closet of material would stay picture perfect and untouched since i don't sew; but i'd still sit and feel inspired by all the ironed, organized loveliness. whenever i'd feel like toys and diapers were about to take over my life; i'd shimmy my way into my fabulous fabric closet and breathe in and out and regain my chi.





pickled pear lane is an online fabric shop brimming with pretty patterns and summery colors for stitching. if only i could sew! marianne's shop inspires me to whip up little girl dresses, tablecloths, aprons, baby quilts and totes too. oh how lovely and girlie my home would be if only two boys didn't live here.

today's giveaway is a bundle of 9 fat quarters from Erin McMorris' latest line, Wildwood in fuchsia and lime. plus, a mix of 10 pearlized heart & leaf straight pins. simply leave a comment to enter to win. tell me what your dream closet consists of. (if you do not have a blog or your blog is private, please include your email in your comment.) comments are open until saturday / june 6 / midnight / mountain time. a random winner will be announced next week.

merci, marianne!

Ooh, I love those prints!

The most important thing about my dream closet--it has to be HUGE! Clothes on one side, shoes on another, and all my crafty stuff taking up the rest,

Parker said...

pretty paper and fabrics and lots of ribbon

Sarah N said...

my dream closet would be full of patagonia everything and some lululemon to balance it out. the other half would be all the outdoor gear i could fit and then a little more crammed into the corners.

these are beautiful! and m, you CAN sew. you CAN! it just takes practice and desire. my guess is with your creative abilities and determination, it'd be a snap for you!

Nessa said...

I dream of a sewing closet... with a sewing machine that works and that I have learned to use, beautiful fabrics, and a 95% complete project that I have this afternoon to finish.

GEL-Oh said...

My "dream closet" would be any organized closet, big or small!!

Alyssa said...

Lots of shoes - stilettos, platforms, boots, etc. And of course I wouldn't mind a great wardrobe to go with the shoes!

megan... said...

I dream that my closet would be bigger than 30" so I would have hope to fit my own clothes and shoes in there! (then i could take pretty fabric and make some more clothes until it was over stuffed again!)

Clair said...

My dream closet would be a walk in closet full of the latest fashions.
That would be so nice!

angela said...

My dream closet would have to be refrigerated because it would be filled with . . . (wait for it) . . . CHEESE! Oh man, I even have a cheese journal.

I really would love the fat quarters--almost as much as a good wedge of manchego.

Christy said...

I have a dream closet right now filled full of fabric and yarn. Those fat quarters would make a most lovely addition, for sure!

christy@christynelson.net

ashleyrwatts said...

My dream closet would consist of lots and lots of space! Room for shoes, clothes, that exercise ball I've been meaning to use for the past 6 months. It would have all the little drawers for my little accessories. My scarves, belts, & pajamas would have their own spaces. Everything would finally have a place, and finally everything would be in it's place (plus color coordinated! lol)

Molly said...

Oh I loved reading those especially the cheese closet. My dream closet would consist of holding all my patterns and craft supplies and it would be deep enough so I could set up my sewing table in the middle and I could be surrounded by all my lovely supplies :) Love to dream!!! Have a great day!!
~Molly P

girlymama said...

my dream closet would be full of clothes (i LOVE clothes!!!) --- and nothing else. no soccer balls, kids craft supplies, sewing supplies, wrapping paper and everything else that has wandered in there over the years!!

Tiffany Rushforth Photography said...

steph-a-ronie said...

oh my.

You see, my dream closet would be filled with beautiful fabrics that sang songs of color. It really really would.

*fingers crossed*

Amanda said...

My dream closet would be full of clothes that I've made myself. I recently completed my first purse. My favorite pieces though are my long coats made of butterfly fabric.

Other than that, I'd like to have it greatly organized like you see in Ikea ad where everything has its place!

tawnya said...

New, fun notebooks and pens. Every size, color, whatever.

Catlin said...

These are lovely! I've been making clothes for my baby girl due in August, and these would be perfect!

My dream closet is full of neutral t-shirts, cardigans, and a few bright colorful pieces. I love the simple, yet classy look.

Shannon said...

My dream closet would be huge, walk in, and would be so organized and hold everything you could imagine: clothes, shoes, blankets, saved treasures and love notes, sewing and craft supplies, surprises and gifts for upcoming holidays, and it would always receive more and still look immaculate...that's why it's a dream right?

Jaime said...

Ohhh I love this fabric. My perfect closet would be all cute dresses that were comfy and never needed ironing (hate ironing.). pretty fabric and coordinating ribbon, and last but not least an abundance of purses and bags...oh, I so hope to win!!!!!

Meg said...

I do love fabric as well.

My dream closet would be a completely stocked and organized pantry! Oh I wish I had one of those...

Jamie said...

Love those colors!!! What great fabric!!! My dream closet would be huge with all kinds of nooks and crannies to organize things...lovely, colorful shoes, beautiful outfits, hooks for quirky scarves and a beautiful vintage dresser in the middle with all my fun jewelry on top (organized and neat, of course!) *sigh* what a great picture I have in my head right now!!!!

Janssen said...

Oh wow, those are lovely. My dream closet would be full of pretty dresses and skirts and shoes. And maybe a dozen pairs of perfect jeans.

Lindsey said...

I don't have time to sew right now. . .so, can I stare at the fat quarters in MY room until I do?

Amy said...

My dream closet would be filled with stacks of fat quarters just like this!! Oh I am already imagining all of the sewing projects...Thank you for the giveaway!

Jennifer Kolakowski said...

I absolutely love this fabric. My closet would be filled with Anthropologie + J.Crew and AT Loft!! Thanks for the chance Marta, love your blog!

Lisa said...

I'd love to have one of those little coat closet turned craft studios. I guess that would be my dream closet, a place of my own to work on my stuff. Currently there are craft items all over the house, and the kids love to rip out a row of crocheting, or something along those lines, whenever they can get ahold of something I'm working on.

cat said...

A closet full of every craft thing you can imagine, with lots of lovely fabric and yarn, just waiting for me to make something wonderful for my home or family.

Cassie said...

I would just love to win these!!

My dream closet would be really big, the size of a bedroom. And it would be color coordinated and everything would be on the same kind of hanger. I'm a little bit OCD. ;)

Sarah D said...

How beautiful are these fabrics? My mouth is watering! My dream closet would consist of books! All kinds of books. And every time I read one it is replaced with a new one that I have never read! Oooohhh! That is making me giddy just thinking about it!

Amy said...

BEAUTIFUL!- Love those!

My dream closet would be quite eclectic... but definitely organized. It would definitely have some lovely fabric, the perfect summer dress and shoes to match, clothes that were cute and flattering and unique, a giant container of chocolate covered cinnamon bears, ribbons and buttons galore, the cutest flats ever, and more yummy fabric! :) (and yes... hard to believe, but it would be organized.)

StudioB said...

Ohh all those pretty colors and patterns stacked together look soooo inspiring.
Tracy

The Mighty RandR said...

My dream closet is big. It has a window and a chaise lounge to perch on while I contemplate. There is a chandelier hanging in the middle of the room, glowing & glittering & sparkling. A large mirror with a huge chunky golden frame stands against a wall. And showcased in this closet are beautifully styled & maintained clothes, shoes, handbags, belts, jewelry, all organized and ready to wear. Delish.

the dibers said...

ooooooohhhhh la la!! PRETTY!

Kristi said...

My dream closet would consist of clothes that actually fit and clothes that I actually wear (instead of like my present closet, full of out dated, to small things). My dream closet would be organized and simple with outfits to mix and match and be comfy! Oh, and I would love to see the floor!!

Kelly said...

ooh! my dream closet consists of massive organization, space and display. i want to fit everything in it, have it look nice and show off my best pieces. just because it makes me smile when i open the door. :)

Rachael said...

my dream closet would be a room in which i could hide. complete with a chaise lounge. organized + pretty, full of color + pattern.

{kate} said...

my dream closet would look like one from california closets, only half would be clothes and shoes and hangbags, and the other half would be stacks and stacks of paper, fabric, craft supplies...it would be a mini craft store. department store and craft store rolled into one? heaven! oh, and i suppose my husband could have a little space fo his stuff too :)

katieolsenheap@yahoo.ca

{natalie} said...

i would love a closet full of quilts to wrap up in. or full of new jeans and cute tops. and shoes. i think it's going to have to be a big closet...

thanks for the giveaway, the fabric is lovely.

Kalli Ko said...

dream closet is one that is magically always full of new stuff in 2 sizes smaller that of course always fits...

love those fat q's!

Celeste said...

My closet would be full of ribbon and shoes. A huge walk-in - one side with every kind of ribbon known to man, and the other side full of shoes.

KJ said...

I am so with you on the stacks of fat quarters...and not sewing. I've decided this is the year for learning how. My dream closet: stacks of gorgeous fabric, stacks of beautiful gift wrap and stationery, and spools and spools and spools of ribbon. The fancy kind.

The Wingnut's said...

everyone needs a happy place to help them get through the tough times. my closet would be that place - full of papers, fabric, wires and brads. a pen in every color possible, notebooks of every design and two pairs of scissors - one for paper and one for fabric.
my mother always told me to never, ever cut paper with my fabric shears!

enjoy the day!

Kim said...

My dream closet would be filled with shoes. Shoes always fit (except for when I am prego).

Thanks for the giveaway. Love the Wildwood line.

Cherish Stockdale said...

My favorite closet would be filled with shoes all different colors and styles.

Coujones said...

I'd love to have a closet for my fabric! Right now they are on open shelves in my room and are such an inspiration to wake up to. So, if they did fill a closet, I'd probably take the door off so I could see them better!

Kate said...

My dream closet would consist of lots of pretty paper, fabric, and yarn. Oh how I wish. And it would be big enough that I could work in there and not have to clean up every time I left the project!

Sam said...

My dream closet would be one that not only holds all my clothes (old and new) but it would organize my shoes and accesories as well!!!

Oh and it would clean itself, have lighting that makes my butt look small and even a window or two (clothes need fresh air too).

starparker@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for the fun,
Sam

Kate said...

my dream closet would be color coordinated and completely organized. Oh and ribbons and paper would take up a whole wall and make me happy everytime I looked at them

Melissa said...

Lovely little fat quarters. I love pink and yellow together.

My dream closet would be big enough to have a little girlie dressing table, a full length mirror and a round plush ottoman in the center to sit on and change my shoes.

Erin said...

fabric, of course!

Erynn said...

Such cute fabrics, I'd love to win. My dream closet would be organized and not hold anything other than clothes. My closet has turned into the misc. storage closet for the family.

Jordan and Jandee said...

Lovely giveaway! I think I need four dream closets: one for clothes (jcrew, yes please!), one for fabric, one with lots of skinny shelves to hold drying oil paintings, and one for books. Wouldn't it make your day to open a boring closet door and see lots of rows of books?

Nancy said...

I LOVE the Wildwood fabric and am postively salivating right now! Thanks for offering up such a beutiful giveaway.
My dream closet would would have a hidden trap door so that if I wanted to escape I could sneak in there and no one would be able to find me. It would lead to a quiet meadow in a forest. In the meadow would be a little table and on that table would be a sewing machine and around that machine would be a pile of Wildwood fabric and close to that pile would be endless yards of thread and a bottomless supply of notions and I would have hours to spend there. And since I will need some nourishment diet Dr. Pepper and Oreos...
Ok, I'm back to the real world now. Sorry, that was more than you wanted to know. Thanks again!

Hil said...

OH boy, Marta! You have done it again. Introduced another shop that I will officially be addicted to. My dream closet would consist of cookie dough. This would mean that it would have to be just a giant walk-in freezer... but it would be pure heaven.

landrylee said...

My dream closet would have plush carpet for me to curl my toes into, a reading nook in the corner where I could escape to different worlds, at least 4 floor length mirrors, and rows and rows of shelves with and endless supply of wooden hangers!

Megan said...

Ooo what pretty fabrics!
My dream closet would be huge and you can walk in and it is totally organized (with lots of brightly colored storage containers) and filled with tons and tons of crafting supplies. :) And it would be connected to my craft room of course!

debby said...

i LOVE fat quarters and these are gorgeous. my ideal closet would have stacks of fabric organized by color, with the most abundant stacks being red.

mj said...

oooh - i've spent so much time at our local quilting store lately just breathing in their beautiful fabrics. i'm trying to pick the perfect combination - coordinating but not too matchy-matchy - for a quilt on my daughter's first big-girl bed.

i can already think of projects for this fun giveaway!

Scott and Melissa said...

My dream closet would be filled with anthropologie and J crew clothes, Jimmy Choo shoes, lots of beautiful fabrics and pretty paper!!!

justatitch said...

It would be filled with pretty papers and goodies for making lovely cards to send to faraway friends...

Diana said...

Oh brother, a closet full of whatever I want? Well, fabric would be a pretty sweet choice, but I'd have to go with all the paper supplies my little heart desires: letterpress tags, gel roller pens, cardstock in every color of the rainbow, decorative scissors and die cuts, a basket full of double-stick tape...the list goes on and on. In fact, I might have to make this an entire room, not just a closet. Hee hee. I like to bend the rules! My fingers are crossed that I win the fat quarters. I'm officially in love with them. :o)

Karen said...

Oh, what cute fabrics!!! I have a sister who could whip out some lovely items from this!

My dream closet would be organized and filled with clothes that reflected the me that is hiding under the jeans and t-shirts...

Karie said...

Oh, that fabric is so to die for!
In my closet I'd have lots and lots of cute, comfy flip flops!

carrie said...

All I want is a closet big enough to put my clothes and shoes instead of having my junk stashed in 3 different areas in the house.

MYSUESTORIES said...

MY dream closet is filled with pretty shoes all lined up perfectly under gorgeous/useles//frivolous party dresses. Oh, and it's neat as a pin, too!!!!(as long as we're dreaming!)

Amy said...

Gorgeous fabric is my obsession!
My dream closet would be filled with paper, fabric, books, boxes of gifts to give away, and definitely more clothes.

{lauryl} said...

My dream closet would be filled with every crafty-product imaginable. It would be neat and clean and organized and perfect, just like Martha Stewart's craft room. Since it's a DREAM closet, it would also come with scouts, who would run off to pick up anything else I might decide that I needed so that I could craft and sew to my heart's content. ;)

Nicki Lundeen said...

I love to sew and quilt along with paper crafting. I already have a custom "paper closet" for all my papers/cardstock. So, I would love to have an additional one to hold all my fat quarters, yardages I have for purses along with my patterns and quilt/purse books.

I crossing my fingers, this is such a great giveaway!

Sue Cahill said...

My dream closet would be a big, walkin with shelves for my fabric stash, so it could be organized. Also, shelves for batting, large backing pieces, cubby holes for tools, hangers for mats and stencils and place s to store the sewing machines I'm not currently using. The lighting would be great and if I closed the doors on the outside would be a design wall!

Love those fq's.

Kristin said...

At this point, I just dream to have a closet that is not crammed full with an entire family's stuff. A closet of my very own..to fill with stuff (clothes, shoes, fabric, jewelry) of my very own.

Carla said...

~D Spack~ said...

I have been coveting the Wildwood line for a long time now, can't seem to find it in any of the local quilt stores! and those pins, I was just thinking yesterday how I really really need some nice new pins! Dream closet, FABRIC (including wildwood), not batting batting bugs and is so hard to store tidily. (is that a word?)

Jen said...

Oh! My dream closet would be filled with tons of clothes - all that would fit this post pregnancy body perfectly and brimming with lovely shoes!

Shoes and jeans, shoes and jeans, shoes and jeans. That's all I need in my imaginary closet.

Amy said...

My dream closet would be organized. Full of nothing important, but very put together. And I too would leave it locked and accessible only to me- just so I can have a place that's "just so" all the time. If there was something I used in it, it wouldn't stay that way.

Kiasa said...

I'm just (re)learning to sew and I'd love these colors for my daughter. And I'm in a serious need for a pick-me-up. Today I'm due to have my baby boy, but no baby yet. Love to win!

project simple life said...

These are so simple and beautiful. My dream closet would have-SPACE! Lots of shelves, windows, drawers, and lights.

Carolyn said...

my dream closet is not unlike yours. and actually, it's a reality. but my fabric is on hangers and in color order. knits are rolled on bolts so they don't stretch out. and whenever my not-so-dreamy closet off my bedroom is boring me, i can skip downstairs, pick a pretty fabric, and make something new to wear. those fat quarters are screaming 'skirt' to me!

whitney said...

lots of clothes and beautiful shoes all organized perfectly! with a velvet stand in front of a huge mirror to try things on in front of. i also want a separate crafts closet... more like a room, with all my crafts and sewing stuff organized in drawers and cupboards and a huge desk. someday.

Suzanna said...

My dream closet would be filled with aqua and white storage boxes filled with pictures and supplies and clear boxes filled with fabric and ribbon. :)

brandy said...

My dream closet would have beautiful clothes hanging on wooden hangers, designer shoes all lined up on several shelves, trendy purses instead of a diaper bag, and a jewelry box filled with gorgeous pieces.
Ahhhh...a girl can dream right?

katie, dave, lucille and winston said...

my dream closet? simple. pair after pair of perfect shoes. all perfectly comfortable, stylish, yet classic. shoes i can wear on any sort of day for any sort of occasion. and to pair with these shoes? all things Anthro, of course. pretty dresses, skirts and shirts. yet jeans that fit like a glove with a tissue t. love it! i can dream, right?

JB and Jane said...

my dream closet would consist of a secret corridor that would lead to a fantastic private craft room, where I could finally get to all of those projects on my to do list.

Jill said...

mmm ... my dream closet would be devoted to pretty summer dresses and flats. And I'd have it all to myself - no sharing with other people or storage. :)

Love the fabric!

MandMStudio said...

My dream closet would be filled with my skinny clothes:)

philippa said...

Oh how dreamy! I'd adore some fabric like this, perhaps to make New Wife Quilt #2.

I dream of haveing a wardobe full of Noa Noa clothes. I'd be able to layer them in to artful, yet chic combos which would have the world wondering. "...just how does she do it?..."

My Three Sons Designs said...

yep, i totally need these.

Dawn said...

oh the perfect fabric to start lorelei's 1 year old quilt.
i'm trying to be ambitious and make her a quilt every year until she's 18.
haha.

anna jo said...

so marta, listen, what can I do to be the random winner? seriously. and my dream closet would definitely be bigger than my current closet. that's for sure. I'd love to be able to walk in. "...look, I'm walking in! it's a walk-in!..."

kayla said...

my dream closet would be papered with fabric, trimmed in sequins, filled to the brim with colorful clothing i made myself which would be perfectly complimented by a summer day romping through both fields and orchards and a bustling city. there would also probably be a disco ball and a rose garden in there somewhere, too.

Leah said...

My dream closet would be filled with neatly folded fabric all sorted by fabric type (knits, twills, quilting cottons, fleece, etc) and be stacked by colours. And wouldn't have any fabric on the bottom shelf but would have great lighting.

jenny said...

ooohhh...so pretty and fun! my dream closet would be filled with fabric, paper, and books. it would be a walk-in large enough for a comfy chair for me to sit in. i'm sure i would spend much time sitting in that chair breathing deeply and soaking up the inspiration that i get from such things.

middleofthetable said...

my dream closet would be filled with:
a). lots & lots of fabric to work on craft projects.
b). lots of cute dresses and skirts (got quite a collection so far!)

I've been excited for the new Eric McNorris fabrics! I love this shop and think the best closet "get away" would be a room with bolts of fabric from floor to ceiling...I get goose bumps just thinking about it!!

Hanna said...

my dream closet would be full of cute pretty clothes that fit me well!

Leslie said...

My dream closet would be filled with beautiful vintage linens, rolls of pretty ribbon, sheets of lovely wrapping and tissue paper.

You offer the best gifts!

Zom! said...

That wildwood pack is gorgeous! If I don't win it may have to become mine in other ways...

My dream closet is a historically impossible one in which all the documents that would answer all my questions were not destroyed by the centuries, but sitting in lovely bookshelves. They would just be waiting for me to pick up their dusty, Italian selves, and discover ten career's worth of secrets, misconceptions, and delights.

Aunt Spicy said...

If you could see how small my closet currently is....sigh...my dream closet has space, plenty of space for everything to have a place!

Firstly, I must say how happy the idea of winning this giveaway has made me, and I have been entertaining the thought of winning, and what I might produce from my prize. For that reason alone I had to enter, even though I know my odds are low.

On to my dream closet. My imagination has been running wild with what I would love to have.
I would have mason jars full of assorted buttons and paint brushes. Shelves full of blank canvas of varying shapes and sizes, and every paint color known to man. A collection of vibrant, beautiful fabrics--endless possibilities with those. Baskets full of thread and others with yarn. Blank sketch books and old books that I can paint on, cut from, and recreate. I think I'd like a shelf devoted to the collection of cameras I'd like to have, as well as some photography accessories. It would be an oasis for me, a place I could either escape to or be inspired from--or better yet: both.

my perfect closet would have rows and rows of pretty dresses and shoes: fancy and formal and casual and cool. forget jackets and pants and tees and tops. i'd be content if all i had were shoes and dresses! neat, tidy, color-arranged rows and racks of dresses and shoes. sigh.

my dream closet would be a huge 12x12 one with all of my arts and craft supplies in them with a huge desk, comfy chair and tunes to craft by. At the end of the day I can just close the close the double wide doors...but would most likely open them up again to do more crafty crafting!!!!

Oh, food, no contest - pickles, wine, herbs from all over the world, jams, flavoured oils...*wipes some drool off face*

ooohhh I love pretty fabric! my dream closet would be big enough to be a dressing room, with lots of shelves for my shoes and sweaters, and pretty padded hangers, and good lighting. dream on!

Marie said...

D'you know, I don't even have a closet! Just a big drawer under my bed and a third of a pokey cloth wardrobe I share with my flatmates. After a bout of shopping I have no other option but to make room for the new items by giving away some of the older ones. I used to find ways around this, storing things up in a box in the attic, for example, but I find now that it's liberating to have a limit to what I can accumulate. And by giving things away to a charity shop, I know that someone will get to enjoy the items of clothing I'd grown tired of. So my perfect closet right now is the one I don't have!

My perfect closet would be one that always organized itself... I could just throw the laundry in there and it would magically put itself away all neat and tidy. Plus it would be full of fun, cute clothes + shoes.

Lindsay said...

The floor of my closet is currently consumed with sewing supplies and fabrics. I would love to be more organized, with my fabrics shelved neatly by color.

Nichole said...

My dream closet would consist of lots and lots of fat quarters, except if I needed fabric for a big project the little fat quarter would unfold into an unlimited amount of that fabric. XD

Kathy Reid said...

My dream closet would be a magic closet with magic clothes that never got dirty and fit perfectly all the time, even if my body changed shape or size. Plus, you could throw the clothes on the floor and they would magically fly onto a hanger and hang themselves up.

My dream closet would be for my craft room. I don't want to have to share it, I want everything organized by colors, embelishments, ribbons and steckers, etc. I would love to be able to just go and grab instead of having to dig and pull everything out. Oh wouldn't it be nice!!

Genevieve said...

My dream closet would first of all be huge, with two walls covered in organized cloth, paper, craft materials, the back wall would remain simple with a soft and gentle photo and a space in the middle of the floor for some yoga...perfect.

tara said...

As long as we're dreaming... I would have several closets. One full of fabric. One for yarn. One for office supplies & paper. And one full of artists illustrations. Lovely!

My dream closet would be a color coordinated Anthro meets Banana meets J.Crew extravaganza! Of course it would also be lined with pretty wallpaper and a huge ottoman in middle.
I making little skirts with mismatched pockets right now, these fabrics would be perfect!

Mari said...

A dream closet? Hmmmm...lots of sunlight; rickrack; paper goods, all sorts; books; and a love seat to share my cozy closet with those nearest and dearest.
And hopefully these sumptuous fabrics! Thank you, Marta.

I just saw a picture of my dream closet in a magazine while at Home Depot on a DATE w/my hubby of 9 years (in July)! "Yes" we had a baby sitter watching our 3 little ones while we were at Home Depot on a DATE! My dream closet consists of paper, ribbon and fabric. In this picture they were very clever with how they had organized everything. Why I didn't buy the magazine I don't know. The containers they used to hold each item were stylish and fun. I loved the overall look it was clean, organized but had so much personality because of their creativity in not using ordinary containers. For example to hold Pens, markers & whole punches they used small tin buckets (colored) sitting on a shelf. Oh, I wish I had the picture in front of me so I could describe it well.
My dream closet would include paper, ribbon and fabric. I love to sew, make cards, scrapbook!

Kate said...
