MMF Glitz Blitz: Quilts!

When we first talked about doing metallics on our silky Cotton Couture weight fabric we knew that it would be perfect for garments, clutches and throw pillows but we wondered if it would make beautiful quilts-- well, Heidi Pridemore designed a couple of spectacular quilt patterns for us! We LOVE how they turned out. They are so elegant yet totally washable and great for everyday use! As part of our Glitz Blitz, we'd like to share them with you!

 This cute little dog has good taste ;)

As you can see in the swatches above, Glitz hangs with both the pink and mist groups. I bet they would even look good all mixed together in a quilt - feel free to send pictures if you try mixing them - I'd love to see :)

Well, this post wraps up our January Glitz Blitz! I hope you are feeling inspired to sew with metallics! I know that I am. 

And a big THANK YOU to all of the artists who participated in our blitz... you are amazing!

In honor of the end of the Glitz Blitz, we're giving away six yards of fabric! Two yards of Chic Chevron in Confection, two yards of Sleek Chevron in Confection, and two yards of our silky, soft Cotton Couture in Bright White!


 We'd love to hear what you think about all of the metallic projects, what you will make if you win, and what colors you would like to see in the future. 

Comments are now closed - thanks so much for participating!

Congratulations to....

"I thought the clothing, the children's dresses, were pretty but I love to make quilts and love the two in this post. That is what I would use the fabric to make. The aqua and the blush are both gorgeous. This is just one luscious group of fabric. Any color at all."

Cute quilt pattern! I would love to see some silver in future fabrics. Love the green and gold together. I think I would make some pillows or maybe a tote.

Melissa @ Missouri Mel said...

I'm not a metallic fan but my 18 year old daughter love it. She'd especially like it with deeper colors, especially black and a cobalt or royal blue. Especially animal prints. Is she my child?

Robynn said...

I can't wait to get some of this fabric, a dress, a quilt, skirt, a pillow the possibilities are endless.

DianeY said...

I love metallics! They look so exquisite in these quilts, I would definitely use the m in one. Also love them in bags. Can't wait to see them in person!

Wow, the fabrics are so pretty! I love the quilts! I have never done metallic fabric but now that you've shown me, I'm really digging it! If I win, I would love to make a quilt pillow case, just something that's simple yet beautiful.
I love the colors too! I'd love to see purple! Purple and gold just seems so royal to me.

delaineelliott said...

I love the metallic fabric and the look of it in the quilts. I would make a Christmasy table cloth and some place mats with it. I would love to see some blue or purple metallic fabric.

Thanks for the give away!

scottylover said...

I love these metallics! I think I would start with a quilt for my niece and if there was anything left, make a tote for me! I would love to see a soft mint green or lavender in the future.

Thank you for sharing!

I love the projects, especially how the chevrons were used. Colors I'd like to see in the future, maybe ice blue and silver?

sowmya said...

I am really excited about this fabric line! I want to use the blush to make a little dress for my daughter. I would love to see blue and lavender added in the future.

I love the metallic projects! The quilt pattern is great.

nicolesender said...

Forgot to say that I am open to any colors!

jednoiglec said...

If I win I would love to make a quilt. Glitter is all I need to make fab quilt:)
I wonder how would look like glitter on dark background (for example amaranth, glitter in coordinating color). It could be something nice.

Rita said...

So fresh and festive. Love the child's dress. I'd like to see metallic gold or silver combined with lavender because lavender is a quiet color but should stand out once in a while. I would use it for a child's dress, and for market bags--why should market bags be drab and boring?

Peaches1003 said...

Gosh these are gorgeous! That pink quilt especially - ooh la la. I'd definitely make a clutch and the. Incorporate them into a quilt - perhaps the blooms one from Patchwork Please

Capi said...

I just love the Mist quilt, but I would probably use the fabric to make a dress and a purse for my granddaughter. Thank you for sharing.

Nicole B said...

This is my favorite collection ever! I am so in love with it, and super impressed that it washes so well and keeps the glitz. :) I would make dresses for my little girls and perhaps a skirt for me. So excited for this beautiful line to come out, this line will sell out in now time. :)

BerryPatchCottage said...

My favourite project has to be the jacket The Cottage Mama made. But that mint quilt is stunning too. I'd love to see a pale purple glitz or ruby red.

Beth said...

I love the little girl dresses made from this beautiful fabric. I would definitely use it to create one for my grandaughter! I'd love to see the fabric in a navy blue tone. I think that would make a very special dress:)

Wow! Supercool! I would use it in a girly quilt. How about some orange-pink and blue-green together? these colors always make my day.

Christine said...

I would make a series of table runners to use when we have parties at our house. The metallic and white could be used at just about any holiday. I would add blue and red napkins on the 4th of July and for News Years Eve I think I would go with white. Endless possibilities.

Meghan Hightower said...

Those are stunningly beautiful! I would make my daughter a pretty little dress and a quilt! SUPER excited now!!

Unknown said...

The metallic fabrics are very cool. I would use it for a quilt. Very glam.

Wells Photography said...

I love these colors! I don't think I have ever seen fabric that combines the glitter and the solid colors like this before. I love it! I would love to make a baby quilt with this or even just a decorative quilt that I can look at to make me happy. =)
I am always on the lookout for mint colored fabrics and haven't seen many around. I would love to see more!

Lynne Tilley said...

I first saw these fabrics a few days ago on a blog and immediately loved them! Glitz, yet not in a loud way, but soft and pretty and elegant. Love them so much. I see quilts and handbags because that's what I love to make. Wish I was a good clothing sewist, but I'm not. Thanks for this chance!!!!

barb said...

i love these fabrics! i would make a charity quilt for an eleven year girl from muhlenburg county kentucky. her house caught fire this past week and she lost her thirty five year old mother and eight brothers and sisters that ranged in ages from fifteen to twin boys that were four years old. only she and her dad survived and are in the vanderbilt medical center in nashville tennessee. she and her day were both burnt prett bad. babscorbitt@gmail.com i would also like to see this fabric in blue and purple and red.

Mrs Quinn said...

Gorgeous. Would love to make a modern baby quilt. How about metallic purple?

java diva said...

I am so excited about the more metallic cotton options. I just saw some at Joann and Jennifer Sampou has some coming out in April. And MM Mirror Ball dots have always been my favorite. I want to make pj pants and a dress from metallic fabrics, especially that dot/ombre print! And I made a mug rug backed with mirror ball dots and it felt so cool after it was quilted. Definitely some of my favorite fabric!! Glimmer is a girls best friend!

Anonymous said...

Definitely something for my granddaughters. Now....quilt or dress? Hard decision! Maybe a dress with a hat!

Haley B said...

Absolutely loving the idea of Glitz for my S/S '14 line! These light colors mixed with the contrast of metallic gold are perfect for women's spring dresses + matching toddler girl dresses. I'd love to see them in more pastels (lavender, peach, lime, canary).

Very classy! My favourite is the Pink Glitz quilt. If I won, I would make some pillows. My living room could use some jazzing up! :o)

Mom C said...

I make lots of costume hats and I love your glitz fabrics. Most of the fancy fabrics I have to use are so flimsy, by the time I'd stabilized them, they just don't look natural. I'd make loads of hats with the fabric.

Lisa said...

Gorgeous! I would love to make a quilt for my daughter.

Anonymous said...

This line would be so much fun for a project or two! I'm keeping my fingers crossed and thanking you so much for the chance to win!
