Giveaway~ Flock together..........WINNER!!

update: Congrats! Stacey at luv2knitnsew
Lots of new words to ponder and find good usage for.
I think we need to have a word verification comment one of these days.
Remind me, would ya?
Thanks for all the comments!
......my little birds of a feather.
After seeing this block on Rachel's post, I thought to myself,
"Self, why have you not seen this fabric before?"
Sweet Rachel hunted down the info for me.
Then I called my personal secretary and told her to get me that fabric ASAP. Well, she got mostly everything they had left of this line.
And then I woke up and realized that Corrie was the boss and it was all just a figment of my imagination except the part about Rachel and getting the fabric.
Since we are into share and share alike, we'd like you to have 4 fat quarters today.
Feathered Friends from In the Beginning Fabrics
We're covering all your bases:
Aren't they lovely, wonderful, in fact just plain.....Tweeterific!!
I think I just made that up.
Let me check my Funk & Wagnall, Mr. Webster is busy.
Nope. Not original.
I forgot the whole Twitter mania.
I hate it when I can't claim credit for wonderful words.
Oh yes....I'm feeling like comments today should be full of new and wonderful words!!!!
In the immortal words of Pat Benetar.....
Hit Me With Your Best Shot.....Fire Away.
Although, I'm not sure I used the word immortal correctly. Perhaps you might want to leave a comment in regards to grammar, usage and mechanics.
Random Drawing later tonight.
Although the random drawer is always drawn towards people with email addresses attached.
The random drawer spends zero time trying to hunt people down.
If you haven't the slightest clue of what I'm talking about, see here.
Good Luck!!

  1. I do love that quilt block from Rachel's blog. I had admired it before. I have some of the fabric...the large birds in BLUE. It was supposed to be for an apron but then something else took its place and so it is folded and in my stash, just waiting...

  2. The second I opened this post, I thought, "I've never seen this fabric before." Then I actually bothered to read what you've written and was happy that I wasn't the only loopless egg.

  4. Love the fabric, the first thing that popped up in my mind is "eeeeekkkk!!"

    "eeeeekkk!!" = so cute; so adorable; i'm excited; and i want that!

    Note: it is not "ick!" , which is the total opposite by the way! =) you must be able to pronounce it the right way - eeeeekkkk

    Thanks =)

  5. Am I allowed to say that the fabric is fanbloodytastic, it's a common one here in this part of the world, it's a few steps up from ordinary fantastic!
    The fabric is lovely and soft in colouring.

  6. I have not seen the fabric either! It makes me feel like spring.

  7. All of a sudden I wished I was good with words.
    This fabric all kinds of cute.

  8. I know it's not a new word for most quilters, but I like "fabricoholic". I doubt it's in most dictionaries...

  9. The bird fabric is so cute! I have never seen it before either! I believe "featherlicious" fits the bill!

  12. You forgot Rockstatic though that seems like a hard word for such a sweet fabric. I love that fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love that fabric. Love making up new words too. My husband always asks, "Is that a word?" I say YES in my world it is. I, however, am a stickler for correct speaking grammar...not so much writing but speaking is important to me. I want to sound edumacated.

  14. very nice!! I have never seen this fabric either, very nice!! Thanks,

  15. I've been thinking that a lot of the birds on bird fabric look kind of menacing -- ? Probably can blame that on Alfred Hitchcock. Anyway, these are sweet! Baby sweet even!

  16. Ooh, that fabric is sparkilicious!
    Enter me, please.

  17. Oops - hit anon by mistake! (happy to find non-menacing bird comment)

  18. I am in the mood to BIRDIFY an upcoming quilt and some new lovely fabric would help me do just that!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ooh--I am so uncreative. But I love the word "birdiful" that someone else used. Perfect!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love this fabric and I do not have a made up word, I just butcher words we already use!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Gotta have this scrumptiolicious fabric. Please. Please. Pretty Please.

    ReplyDelete
  22. You must be reading my mind! I just posted on crazymomquilts blog yesterday that I had to come up with new words to describe her beautiful quilts. Thanks for having this posting for me!;-) I have also been participating in ParkCityGirls' quilt festival and I feel like I keep saying the same thing all the time. Alright, getting to the point my word is fantabulous. It's a combination of fantastic and fabulous, meaning something so wonderful it can not be described by one word only. For example, that fabric is fantabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow! that fabric "supercalafragulisticexpealadocis"
    I think I might need some of that.

  24. Oh, pretty fabric. Well, I don't really have any made up words, but I do "itch" my "scratches". They tell me it should be the other way around, but I think it sounds better like this! Almost everyone in my family says it this way. Also, all the kids in my family pronounce crayons as "crowns"! :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. In the words of the BIG purple guy, "Super-de-duper"!!! I can just see the lovely quilt now...

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a fantabulicious giveaway! Thanks for letting me enter :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. What great fabric! I love it!! It would look so sweet as a little chubba blanket (chubba is what we call my little 11-month-old). My 4-year-old puts "chubba" in front of everything--chubba claws, chubba cereal, chubba toys, chubba bath. He'd probably say, "I like that chubba fabric."

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm fabric obsessed...and that fabric is amazing!!! So cool! I love words and grammar, but I'm not super-creative at making up new ones, but yes...the fabric is "wonderlicious!"

    ReplyDelete
  29. oh snap...
    i made the quilt taffy blog!!!
    now that's just pure awesomeness.
    and there is NO charge for awesomeness.
    :D

    p.s. glad i could be of some service for a giveaway. the winner owes me half of their winnings.
    i kid, i kid.

  30. Well, I'm a loopless egg as well! I've never seen that fabric either, but I do like all the 'birdienalia' that's all over the net as of late.

  31. Wow, that is really great fabric! I love anything with birds on it (which reminds me, are we going to do the bird block exchange -- I'm still in!). Did you know my nickname in college was Betsy Benatar?

  32. That fabric is spiffy!

  33. I like all these new words people are coming up with in honor of the fabric...How about Birdirific?
    ohh..I hope I win!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Grammar: Was my least favorite class in college - but something I am stickler for, must be the English teacher in me. (Please do no check that sentence for correct grammar, I'm only a stickler for other people's grammar.)

    Usage: I like to make sure all things serve their proper usage, and then are recycled for a different usage.

    Mechanics: Are quite helpful when you have a problem with your car.

    wv: conatio - when you con your Uncle, in Spanish.

  35. These fabrics are darling. My mom is making a quilt out of the blues and greens, but I've not seen the pinks before.
    Let's see, a new word... when I was young my friends an I used to say the word "idionotic". Used correctly in a sentance it would go something like this: "This game is idionotic, let's play something else."
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  36. Oh, no way! i've been wanting to get these to make a baby quilt! I think it's so sweet.

  37. That fabric is fabulous!!

    Fabri-licious baby!! =D

  38. Tweeterific, Rocktastic, lets see what else? Give me some more awesome DES words! Great fabrics!

  39. Yep, Birdiful is perfect for this fabric. So appropriate as I sit here listening to the Finches and Purple Martins tweeting their own special songs.

  40. That fabric is so sweet and calming. I just love little birdies.

    ReplyDelete
  41. That fabric is absolutely scrumptious. The ideas are filling my head as I type!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow....very very pretty fabrics. Fingers crossed. Now for my word...twitteroxious...the annoying plethera (another good but not new word) of invitations to join someone on twitter. Few people have interesting info on "what you are doing now". Get over yourself twitter people! Ok, now I feel better. Sorry if I offended any twitterers out there. Its the peer pressure to join that is making me nuts. I am a non-twitter person in case I have been too subtle.

  43. Great fabrics!
    Happy St. George day from one that lives in Barcelona: streets full of books and roses, today :-)

    My favorite make up words are the ones that come up after you mix something+fantastic... like... fabrictastic!! or birdtastic!! That's two for the fabrics you're offering today. Fingers crossed!!

  45. I was just looking at that fabric last night! I love that fabric. Okay grammer. I am constantly proofing my husband's letters and major emails. He is getting better, but he still doesn't get the whole their/there thing. And MAJOR comma issues. Have a beautiful day!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I will have to look at Rachel's block/blog....I have enjoyed this line from a far for several months...love it! A word that I use a lot....is crackalackin....let me use it in a sentence...."tell your dad (my husband) we need to get crackalackin (moving) My kids think it is so funny....I have thought about using that for the name of my blog...CRACKALACKIN kinda catchy huh?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Ohhhhh, I LOVE this line! And it is very hard to find! I would love to "quiltify" all that lovely fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  61. My best friend uses the phrase "That's thick" for something really cool. She's the ultimate do-gooder white girl and that was her way of being a little rough around the edges. So, this bird fabric is totally THICK.

    ReplyDelete
  62. No, I think 'the immortal Pat Benatar' is correct. At least that's what I would say. I love the fabric. It's tweetabulous!
    ~Tootles for now!

  63. It is supercalafragalisticexpealadosis???? Stole it from Mary Poppins...probably didn't spell it right.

    Love the fabrics...

    Have a stupendous day.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm not very good at making up words...although my daughter is...I can't keep up with the latest lingo!! Let's see...how about: stashitis
    meaning: Lots of fabric that I continue to collect!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love the term 'Fussy Cut", it is so descriptive of me trying to cut out a motif neatly with scissors. I need my rulers and rotary cutter.

    Love that fabric, so adorable!

  66. It was late and somehow I missed that we were 'sposed to use some new fandangled word(s). It is not new but I'm not sure it is in the dictionary either but that fabric makes me feel TWITTERPATED! (but then what new fabric doesn't??)
    Or I could just use my word verification as a new word - SIGYROMP!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Oh. Em. Gee. I Love this fabric.

    It is Fantabulicios.

    I am already dreaming of what I could make with it....sigh....

    ReplyDelete
  68. Oh Des - you just twittered my tweeter - I HAVE to have these!
    Leaving now to find my credit card....
    Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I think that fabric is ROCKTASTIC!!! I love it and will probably be getting some from your store, it is fabulous. I used to be so good at english when I was in high school but it's a proven study that facebook makes you dumber, and I'm guilty lol. The only thing I could think of is Holy Flock!! I love that material, but that's just a poor use of the work flock which relates to birds. OOhh, or it would be FOWL of you to not let me win this giveaway. hehe. I even went so far as to consult a thesaurus but I still came up with nothing lol. And I am so unoriginal I don't think it's part of my make up to be able to create new and rocktastic words. :)

  72. My favorite made up word is blabbidy blah. But that doesn't describe the fabric. It is mostly my state of mind. I have some of that fabric incidentally. Of course. I'm a brat.

  73. Very nice fabric. Your giveaways and great.

  75. Beautiful fabric!! I learned a new word today.. Jorts. It stand for jean shorts, which the kids in my class think should never have been invented :)

  76. Lovely fabric! I am all about fabric with a springtime flair at the moment! Thanks for letting me enter!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Gorger-rous!!! Meaning lovely and or fabulous. my own personal contraction of gorgeous and fabulous. Maybe that would be more like gorgu-lous, but that doesn't sound so very nice does it?
    I love them and want to know why they never update their site with the cute stuff! Geez!
    And-I checked I am all set for the email dealy! I am just full of silly words today huh!
