Late for a Date Blog Hop for Wonderland Fabrics (Blend Fabrics)

This fun fabric line is inspired by the world of Alice in Wonderland - with cards, clocks, teacups and more.

You know, my one and only experience with Alice in Wonderland is the old Disney cartoon from waaay back in uh, like 1951.  Oh, and I've ridden the (slightly strange) Alice in Wonderland ride at Disneyland.  I think maybe it's time I get around to reading the book, do you?   Have you read the book?  I'm hoping it's better than the movie.

When I first designed this quilt, I imagined it with a white background.  But the Wonderland fabrics just didn't "pop" enough.  So I next tried a solid black and got the result I wanted.  I always find it interesting to see how a quilt changes just with a change of background.  So if you're working on a quilt and you just don't love it, try swapping out the background for another color, or maybe for a print (like swiss dots, or a linen-look print).

And now are you ready for the giveaway?  I'll be giving away this stack of fat quarters - simply leave a comment below telling me your favorite character in Alice in Wonderland.  I'll randomly choose a winner and announce it here next Friday, October 14th.  
Giveaway now closed - thank you!

  9. The Cheshire Cat is on the top f my list.... I know what you mean about changing the background can change the whole quilt.... Instead of black sometimes I like to use a Deep rich chocolate brown. Almost everything is better with chocolate don't you think?

  10. I have very little knowledge of Alice in Wonderland. When I was a kid I tried to read it and was disappointed. I guess Alice is the only one I really like from the original. Sorry. I do love this fabric though and your quilt on the black background is lovely

  11. I love your quilt with the black background!
    My favorite character is the Cheshire Cat because I love cats.
    And yes I've read the book actually a few times. The first time I was a child and it's really fun how this book developed with me. As a child I didn't understand half of the things which are in the book because I was just a child. Now as an adult I have a whole other perspective and knowledge. I'm sure you'll like or even love the book.

  13. This is a great quilt! I like how it appears to have curved seams, but really doesn't! My favorite character is the White Rabbit. He was always nervous, but so confident which is an interesting combination of characteristics!

  35. I love this quilt pattern and what you did with the Alice fabric- much as your Lucy's Crab Shack tutorial which is so effective - many thanks - I like the Duchess from Alice - she is just dreadful but her backstory is really interesting. "Be what you would seem to be ..."
