Denyse Schmidt picnic fabric GIVEAWAY!!!

Since so many of you don't have access, or don't have access yet, to this gorgeous fabric, we thought it would be fun to share! :)

This is Denyse Schmidt's latest fabric line at Joann.  It's really great quality, retailing $9.99 a yard.  As best I can tell or have read the fabric line is maybe called Picnic? or Fairgrounds?

The craziest thing about all of this, is that Joann's seems to be completely clueless!  The fabric is only marked "DS" so that doesn't help.  But of the many phones calls, and visits, between Heather and I to a variety of Joann's....we've both been told flat out "we don't carry that", "I have no idea what you're talking about", etc.!

In fact, Sara went to get herself some last night only to find out that their entire stock had been bought up!


What you'll win:
*1.5 yards from the fabric above

How to win:
leave a separate comment for each please :)
* leave a comment with your favorite fabric line ever! (aside from this ;)
* follow Quilt Story  (or tell us you already do) 
* "like" us on Facebook  (or tell us you already do)

This giveaway is now closed.

Rebecca said...

My JoAnn only had 3 of the prints and were equally clueless about it - didn't even know it was at their store!!! My favorite fabric line EVER would have to be either Arcadia or Mendocino! Very different, but I adore them both.

H2Ogirl said...

So I'm farily new into the fabric world. I think I'm still settling in on my favorite ever and right now it's Central Park, although Sherbet Pips is so wonderful. I wish I would have known about fabric when FMF was around - sigh.

Rebecca said...

I'm also a Quilt Story follower!

H2Ogirl said...

I'm a new 'liker' of Quilt Story on facebook - yeah!

Right now, I really want some of that Riley Blake Sugar & Spice in ALL of the colors, so I guess that counts as my favorite.

Free Spirit Nest is so far my favorite.

Celeste said...

I'm a follower of Quilt Story.

I called Joann's today & they said they'd never heard of this fabric. I went anyways & they had a few bolts of it stored in the back, on a bottom shelf, under the $2.99 sale fabric.

A.J. Dub. said...

And I already follow Quilt Story. If I had a Joannes closer I would check for this, but it is too far to drive.

SewSara said...

I have to post in defense of the dense JoAnn's employees (since I am one -- even though I DO know now what this awesome fabric is!!) We just barely got it and they NEVER tell us when there is a new line of fabric in the store and they are constantly changing :)
I know you aren't hating on JoAnns employees, just had to add my two cents.

And even though Spanish Fork was sold out, I managed to get some at Orem today!!

I didn't get that awesome aqua flower one though ... so I hope I win!! :)

oh and my favorite fabric is probably still lotus dots from amy butler -- they just go with everything! i want to find the yellow/gray ones though ... i can't seem to find them.

Karen said...

My favorite fabric line is Sweetwater :)

I'm a follower! If I hadn't been scrimping pennies today I would have checked my local JoAnn's for some fabric, so it would be awesome to win!

Kasey said...

My current favorite fabric line would have to be Boutique by Chez Moi, partially because it is the one I am currently using to make our bed quilt. It's so pretty, but has enough green and blue to be acceptable to my husband, too.

Favorite Fabric line ever...that's a bit of a challenge! I love fabric...so choosing a single line is hard! A recent fav is Bliss by Moda...but I've also enjoyed using Sandi Henderson's Meadow Sweet! =)

I love a lot of Amy Butler's old lines...and well, Heather Bailey...so much great stuff out there. =)

Thanks again!

Deanna said...

I don't really have a favorite "line" because I am mostly a scrap quilter, but, boy this would sure be a good start for a quilt. It looks like it would "play well" with others.

Anyway, favorite line...still thinking...

Deanna said...

And I follow...who wouldn't. Quiltstory is a great inspiration resource.

Thanks for the great giveaway! I've got to admit, I'm fairly new to the sewing world and don't know many fabric lines. I do like the circa 60 line, but most of my projects are from vinitage sheets that I fall in love with!

I can't say that I really have a favorite favorite line. Nothing has just reached out and GRABBED me. Isn't that sad???? Lord help the fabric that finally does. I'll probably have quilts, and totes, and table runners, and aprons, and napkins, and mug rugs, and, and, and everything else made with it! LOL

WOW,my favorite fabric line of all time?? Well since I have rejoined the quilting world I would say it would be Patisserie by Fig Tree for Moda. I mean this is if you held a gun to my head and made me name JUST ONE! That just wouldn't be nice though.
