Diamond Detour in Jolly Farm + Giveaway!

We fell in love with a new line from Andover Fabrics. Jolly Farm is an adorable line chalked full of cute farm animals, trackers, patterns and foliage. We paired the line with an orange solid background to make a fun crib size Diamond Detour.

Our good friend and fellow quilter, Juli Kieny, made and quilted this adorable quilt. She quilted serpentine lines in the background diamonds which gives the solid fabric some texture. I love how it looks!

Shelby really wanted to help us take photos! She kept circling my Mom as she held the quilt. We finally got her to sit between her legs for a photo!

I love this quilt- great design and the colors are cheerful. My favorite animal would have to be the dog. Especially the over-sized adorable specimen that lives with me :)

I completely melted when I saw that sheep fat quarter because I LOVE SHEEP! I know, I’m a weirdo, but I think it has something to do with the fact that I like the concept of a “black sheep” – do your own thang! Go against the grain! Plus they are super cute and I have a thing about farms – I just love em. I want to feed a baby lamb with a baby bottle someday… LOL. It’s on my bucket list! I have even written about my love of sheep in my blog ( https://sewlindsaysew.wordpress.com/2012/03/31/i-love-sheep ) … can’t make this stuff up! Thanks for giving us the opportunity for such a magical giveaway. :)

I was just looking at this line on the website yesterday. Its so cute. Dogs are y favorite animal. The boxer breed to be exact.


Rina said:

I love this pattern. It’s so different from anything out there. I really like the rainbow version on the cover of the pattern. My favorite animal is a cat because of their, “I am the ruler of my realm” attitude. I also love hearing them purr when they are totally content. They remind me of me! I’m queen of my realm and very contented when I’m sewing, you can almost hear me purr. Thanks for the chance at this cute bundle.


Janie said:

Love your quilt, the background fabric really makes it pop. I would love to have chickens. They are my favorite animal. Thanks for the chance.

My favorite animal is a lamb. They are so cute, cuddly, and gentle. At any county or state fair I head to the sheep building first and have to stay awhile and pet a few. Plus, I live near, and have an annual pass to, a historical living history town where sheep are kept as part of the farming exhibit and sheared for their wool. The sheep are moved from pasture to pasture and I always try to find them. Of course I love these fabrics with the cute sheep.

My favorite animal is a cat. If my husband would let me have more than one I could easily become the cat lady with several. One will have to do. I love this pattern and the fabric you used. I am hoping I am the lucky winner so I can make two baby quilts for my two new grandsons. I haven’t made them quilts yet.

Love all your quilt images and the batik quilt is my favorite. I love all animals but by current favorite is my cat Tuxedo. He is a character and believes he is part dog. His actions make me smile every day and he is as lovable as they come. Thanks for the give-away and looking forward to seeing you at Market! ~Shari

The design is different and very nice looking. I will have to try to break it down into the “how-to” components! I’d have to say that my favorite animal has to be humans! This may not be what you were thinking of . . there are many wonderful creatures in the world but humans outrank them all. ;-)

I love this pattern! Conjures wonderful images of free form quilting to juxtapose against the geometry of the diamonds! I would cherish both pattern and fabric if I won!
