What a Novel Idea – Blog Hop!

Want to win a new book!?  Check out Pat Sloan’s newest book – right here!  Pat has released 3 books in the last 6 months…not sure how she has managed to survive those months of planning, sewing and writing, but I’m so glad to have a chance to look through this book and share it with you!  Pat you are an inspiration, thanks for sharing with all of us!

What a Novel Idea! is all about using your favorite novelty prints, in fun, quick quilts!  This book is full of inspiration, for your next quilt!

Do you have a collection of novelty prints?  Mine is pretty limited, as is the space I have to store fabric!  The few I have are bright and bold, and were must have, impulse buys.  Sound familiar?  I have a good amount of the prints below, and I hope to get them into a quilt soon.  Aren’t they fun?

Novelty prints, by Pat’s definition, “are fabrics printed with easily recognizable motifs.”  Pat shares how novelty prints are placed, and the best way to put them to use in your quilts.  Great advice on collecting the prints as well – when in doubt, buy lots!!

I love Pat’s quilt “A Pair of Winners”  – quick and simple, a great way to show off your favorite group of large scale prints in one spot!

Pat used a Layer Cake to make it, and with the large, directional prints, she was able to turn them so that they make sense.  That’s one thing that bugs me, having to put directional prints in the wrong direction – and Pat shares how she makes them work!

Pat asked a few questions that she wants to know from each of us on the hop….

What is one item you’d want to add to your studio/workplace if money were no object and why?

I would add a studio!  I sew at the kitchen most days, or a TV tray in a pinch, so an actual studio space would be amazing!

Maybe this one:

Or more modern:

Tough choice!  All the sunlight in the mod studio would be fantastic.  Any thoughts?

What is your favorite food to eat and why?

Favorite food, would have to be chocolate, but a lighter, still delicious dessert is Strawberry/Angel Food Cake Trifle.  Yummy!



You may purchase an autographed copy of What a Novel Idea! directly from Pat, or on sale at Leisure Arts!

**To enter to win one of two books – Leave me a comment, telling me about your collection of novelty prints!  Winners will be announced on Wednesday, April 27th.  Good luck!

  1. Joan April 20, 2011 at 2:32 am

    Love the pacific northwest prints. Outdoorsy with Moose Bears and fishing. But my all time favorite designer is Alexander Henry and there’s just about nothing I don’t like that he does!

  2. Debbie Samuelson April 20, 2011 at 3:07 am

    Most of my novelty prints center around coffee or cherries or boy stuff :) I’m a coffee JUNKIE, love cherries and have one precious little boy. Thanks for the chance!

  3. Susan April 20, 2011 at 3:12 am

    I don’t have a huge collection of novelty prints – mainly sewing notions ones- scissors, aprons. I like bike motifs too!

  4. Kate April 20, 2011 at 3:15 am

    My novelty collection is very all over the place! No particular theme – just whatever looks fun at the time :) I find them much harder to use than other fabric though, so am looking forward to this look!

  5. angelina April 20, 2011 at 3:58 am

    this is lovely thanks! ive got no novelties!!

  6. Bec Johnson April 20, 2011 at 4:15 am

    Ive been collecting Dirt Bike prints.. Michael Miller’s Extreme team was a huge hit!! Thanks for the chance to win… One can NEVER have too many QUilt Books!! xx

  7. Joyce Mitchell April 20, 2011 at 4:34 am

    I have a plastic bin full of novelty prints. I would love to win a copy of Pat’s book so I can finally use those fun fabrics. Thanks for the giveaway.

  8. Paulina April 20, 2011 at 4:47 am

    Hi, I don’t have a big collection of fabric but I’ll tell which one I recently saw that i liked very much. It’s Urban Zoologie from Robert Kauffman with the various animals. Other than that I guess I also like some patterns with flowers, leaves – all about nature ;).

  9. ImperaMagna April 20, 2011 at 4:49 am

    I have a limited number of novelty prints… some I just couldn’t resist… because I mostly buy fabric for specific purposes. I like the Pat Sloan quilt with the Irish chain and the big blocks for the novelty prints… with a cool pattern like that… I can see more novelty print purchases in my future!

  10. Maribel April 20, 2011 at 4:53 am

    Oh, thanks for that great giveaway! This book seems to be full of inspiration. The next novelty fabrics I will buy is the new Moda Boy Meadow Friends or Fox Trails by Riley Blake Design – I will do something for my nephew with it.

  11. pat sloan April 20, 2011 at 5:02 am

    ohhh… GREAT novelty prints you own… love love!!! you need more.. just saying….wink!

    And the open studio space just needs to be WIDER with the area for STORAGE…a combo space!

    thank you for being on my blog hop!!!

  12. upstatelisa April 20, 2011 at 5:11 am

    Amy, I have always been drawn to novelty prints and have a pretty good collection of them. My faves these days are those with letters/text.

  13. Deb A April 20, 2011 at 5:41 am

    I don’t have a huge stash of novelty prints. I find that I use them more in baby or children quilts. I am working on a quilt right now with the Max and Whiskers line…very cute.

  14. Sarah Johnson April 20, 2011 at 5:48 am

    I have a super duck print that I want to cut up and make into a cute baby quilt.

  15. Deborah April 20, 2011 at 5:51 am

    I don’t have many novelty prints, so this would be a good reason to get some. Love the book title!

  16. Mary April 20, 2011 at 5:59 am

    I have several novelty fabrics. Several of them were collected when traveling with my son playing basketball. I tried to get fabric representing the area wherever we went, such as cars for Detroit, cowboys in Tulsa, etc. That was around 10 years ago and I still have the fabric but no quilt yet. Hopefully this book will inspire me.

  17. Lisa Marie April 20, 2011 at 6:00 am

    I tried to post a comment earlier but I guess I messed it up. My apologies if I’ve posted twice.

    I have a large collection of novelty prints. I have animals, cars & trucks, college logos, sports prints, holiday prints, and much more. I love when I find good uses for these prints. Pat’s book could help! Thanks for the chance to win.

  18. Bec Clarke April 20, 2011 at 6:00 am

    I have some christmas fabrics that I really love, they are very retro looking with little boys and girls and lovely old fashioned Santa’s.

  19. Cloud Mom April 20, 2011 at 6:12 am

    I would love to use the fabric Spring Street Fabric by Carolyn Gavin in a quilt.
    Love the blog hop!

  20. karenkay April 20, 2011 at 6:17 am

    I love novelty prints with food…coffee mugs, cupcakes, christmas candies…any of them!

  21. elizabeth t April 20, 2011 at 6:17 am

    I have lots of Christmas, Valentine’s and even patriotic novelties. I really need to get this book. Looks wonderful!

  22. CraftyMummy April 20, 2011 at 6:26 am

    Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

    I collected a bunch of novelty prints when I was having my first baby and they have since been used in a play mat for her, then an I Spy quilt for my son. I’d love some ideas for the rest of them.

  23. Jill April 20, 2011 at 6:26 am

    I don’t have any particular theme in novelty prints. Mostly kid stuff I: David Walker vehicles, Erin M Go By Bike, some ducks, a few circus prints. Eclectic I guess.

  24. Melinda April 20, 2011 at 6:35 am

    I have so many novelty prints! I buy them because the kids would/do love them, and then I sit on them for ages because I just can’t imagine what I might do with them beyond, “Make something for the kids”. Sometimes I buy them for me too…shhh!

    Also, LOVED Pat’s last book. I wasn’t expecting to as I have so many other quilt books/magazines, but it is truly one of my favorites!

  25. Darlene B April 20, 2011 at 6:46 am

    I don’t have too many novelty prints, but if I win this book, I’ll definitely go buy some more!

  26. Valerie Boudier April 20, 2011 at 6:47 am

    I have a mixed collection of novelty prints, but more of cats than anything else. I use them for making I Spy quilts

  27. Rhonda April 20, 2011 at 6:48 am

    I am a sucker for baby type novelty prints even though there is no chance of me ever having another. I just can’t help myself.

  28. Nancy D. April 20, 2011 at 6:52 am

    I don’t have too many novelty prints, but what I do have are mostly Christmas.

  29. Quilter Kathy April 20, 2011 at 6:56 am

    I don’t have many novelty prints since I know that I rarely cut them up so they sit in the closet! I need this book! I do have some Dr. Seuss and some Maxine prints that I love.

  30. Ellen Ban April 20, 2011 at 6:59 am

    I have collections of lots of novelties: music, cats, trains, birds… I could use Pat’s book to get sewing them up into quilts! Thanks for a chance to win and that Trifle looks yummy!

  31. Suzanne April 20, 2011 at 7:00 am

    I don’t have a large stash of novelty prints, wait, maybe I do. I have a large assortment of I Spy fabrics and many are bigger scale. This would be a helpful book for me to branch out and make other layouts of those quilts. Thanks for the giveaway, Amy and Pat.

  32. Deb April 20, 2011 at 7:00 am

    My novelty print collection is about like your studio–non-existent! I’d love to read Pat’s book and maybe add some novelty to my stash!

  33. Betty April 20, 2011 at 7:13 am

    I love novelty prints. I also have a tote (or more) of them. I buy just because….. This book would be great to learn how to use them more than I currently do.

  34. Kristen April 20, 2011 at 7:17 am

    My son and I collect novelty prints. He has loved them since he was little (he’s 10 now). His prints of choice are cartoon characters and now all the colorful food prints. We are planning on making a special quilt with them all some day. We have quite the collection. :)

  35. Pat April 20, 2011 at 7:19 am

    Just love to use novelty prints, especially Halloween and Christmas prints, and sports prints for grandkids. I’d love to win the book.

  36. krisgray April 20, 2011 at 7:20 am

    I have a 4 yr old son, so he “helps” add to my novelty stash whenever he accompanies me to the LQS. I have some that I’ve purchased such as Christmas prints, sewing motifs, and the one I hunted down on the internet – 4 yds of the logo “I Love Lucy” w/a black bkgrd.

  37. Pam April 20, 2011 at 7:24 am

    Hi Amy,
    The new fabrics are so …just so gorgeous! Larkspur looks wonderful. Thanks for previewing Pat’s new book…great artist, isn’t she? Most days, your blog is the first that I read.


  38. Kim Lundstrom April 20, 2011 at 7:29 am

    Besides cats and vintage prints I also love pumpkin/fall/halloween prints! I just love novelty prints!

  39. Jean Burke April 20, 2011 at 7:31 am

    I have lots of novelty fabrics – my favorites are the beach/flip flop type prints…..I like making beach quilts for folks who enjoy the seashore…..thanks for the chance. Take care….

  40. Shelley C April 20, 2011 at 7:34 am

    I’ve been in a couple of swaps for novelty fabric squares to make I spys for the grands…haven’t done that yet. I like to find fabrics with trees on it for me…I love trees.

  41. Elaine Morgan April 20, 2011 at 7:39 am


  42. Debbie Gallett April 20, 2011 at 7:45 am

    I have dog prints, french countryside and a mexico print.

  43. Audrey April 20, 2011 at 7:48 am

    I have a huge container of novelty prints from making my disappearing nine patch eye-spy quilt and from working on my wonky letters ABC quilt. I will have plenty left over, so this would be fabulous!

  44. Cathy April 20, 2011 at 7:52 am

    I have bugs, and birds, and Christmas, but my favorite is Halloween. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the book. Hugs.

  45. Candi Thorson April 20, 2011 at 7:56 am

    My novelty prints are quite a hodge podge. None really go together. Most are just scraps from other projects.

  46. Lisa April 20, 2011 at 8:05 am

    I don’t have alot of novelty prints in my stash, but I do have smoe very cute christmas prints from my days of making ornaments. Thanks for the giveaway!

  47. Charming's Mama April 20, 2011 at 8:09 am

    Most of the novelty prints in my collection are juvenile. Thanks for sharing Pat’s book.

  48. Cory April 20, 2011 at 8:17 am

    My collection of novelty spans a wide range of themes from holiday to kid and ocean. Thank you for the chance to win this book. Take care and God bless, Cory.

  49. Moneik Stephens April 20, 2011 at 8:19 am

    I collect a lot of sewing motif novelty prints, but also have a large collection of breast cancer ribbon fabric too.

  50. Sonia B April 20, 2011 at 8:25 am

    I’ve been collecting for an ABC softie book, but I’ll have lots of extras that need a good quilt design. Thanks for the chance!

  51. Jennifer April 20, 2011 at 8:43 am

    I have a collection of sewing notion fabrics, as well as several juvenile prints that I’ve collected with the intention of making fun things for my girls (they’re growing up too fast, though, and so much of it still sits forlorn …)

  52. April Hurley April 20, 2011 at 8:48 am

    I have a few bike motiff fabrics in my small collection!! But one thing I do not have is a quilt book!!

  53. De April 20, 2011 at 8:54 am

    I LOVE the Larkspur print you have! Looks like the book has some great ideas ~ I’m always drawn to bird prints! I love “Nest” from Valori Wells!

  54. robin April 20, 2011 at 9:01 am

    I’m a newbie with next to no stash! But so far have some license plate, Dr. Seuss, and Debbie Mum’s Winter Pines. :) I want Max & Whiskers next. lol!

  55. eadaoine April 20, 2011 at 9:02 am

    Lately I’ve been collecting cute Japanese prints!

  56. Jocelyn April 20, 2011 at 9:02 am

    I have quite a few nature prints. Mostly to make guy type quilts. This book looks awesome. Thanks for the giveaway :-)

  57. Mariette Shepard April 20, 2011 at 9:03 am

    My friends and I do an annual camping trip, and I have made accessories for each of us campers from the “Bathing Beauties” fabric by Loralie Harris – quilts to sleep under, cases to store wet/dry bathing suits. While I like many other novelty prints (owls come to mind), this is my very favorite.

  58. jean April 20, 2011 at 9:10 am


  59. jean April 20, 2011 at 9:11 am

    yikes! first it said there was an error and then it printed that crazy comment above. if you read between the %20’s you “might” get the message. sorry, don’t know what happened. crazy ‘puters!

  60. vicki boschman April 20, 2011 at 9:22 am

    Would love to get some crows, always need Christmas fabrics, fish for purses and bags, environmentally endangered species to name a few. I don’t feel limited – want it all (and my husband thinks I have it too, silly man)

  61. Cathey Self April 20, 2011 at 9:26 am

    I want to find some more whimsical bug prints for a ” What’s in Your Garden?” quilt I have in my head.

  62. Sew.What. - Kerri April 20, 2011 at 9:30 am

    I just finished making a sock monkey quilt and a dr. seuss one. I would say both of those are very novelty!

  63. Barbara Eisenrauch April 20, 2011 at 9:35 am

    I love all types of novel prints!

  64. DebrafromMD April 20, 2011 at 9:56 am

    I collect pirate prints for my grandson and I love Christmas prints. Actually, now that I think about it, most of the novelty prints in my stash have to do with holidays.

  65. Mary Ellen April 20, 2011 at 10:00 am

    I only have a few prints; sewing notions and kitchen fabrics. But, with Pat’s new book, the Fl Christmas fabrics at our LQS will be perfect for Christmas quilts.

  66. VickiT April 20, 2011 at 10:13 am

    I love the little cottage looking studio possibility. I’d love that in my back yard although it would need to be just a little larger than that one. I could never do the modern one because I am a HUGE sissy and would be afraid of someone breaking in. With all that glass one could never leave much in that studio given the glass all around because it’s kinda hard to hide anything that could be of value with all that glass.

    My novelty fabrics are probably about 99% all Christmas. I have more Christmas fabric than any one person should ever have I’m pretty sure. LOL Let’s just say I hit a really great sale a few years back on the day after Thanksgiving and when my husband and I took my ‘haul’ out to our van, it pretty much filled the back of the van. We were out of state and had suitcases and laptop bags etc. and actually had to move some of those to the back seat to make room for the fabric. Yea, it was quite embarrassing once I realized just how much there was. Who can honestly say they’d turn down getting almost $800+ worth of fabric though for under $200?? I think I need help. Maybe Pats’ book could give me some ideas. LOL

  67. liveacolorfullife April 20, 2011 at 10:29 am

    My collection is novelties is quite extensive. Well, honestly, my collection of fabric is quite extensive. Lately I’ve been buying buying cute novelty prints to make pillowcases for my grandkids. Not sure what I’ll do with the scraps leftover. They might make a fun “I spy” quilt…

  68. Sarah Craig April 20, 2011 at 10:37 am

    Most of the novelty fabrics in my stash have been donated to us for our quilt ministry – they are great for making I-Spy quilts from! But I’m always looking for new patterns to use with them, since we’ve got a lot of them!

    And that modern studio – what a dream place to work!! I want one!! It would be like working outside, without the bugs!!

  69. Pati Cook April 20, 2011 at 10:40 am

    My collection of novelty prints is large and varied. But most of them were not purchased as quilt fabric, but for clothes. I make sport shirts for my husband and he likes them, lets say, “far from subdued”.
    I also make skirts and such for myself from novelty fabrics. They were wonderful when I was teaching school and working some with the younger kids.

    Great post,

    Pati, in Phx

  70. Lynn M April 20, 2011 at 10:43 am

    Oh, I want that little cottage studio too. I collect Halloween/Fall novelty prints; I have way to many and would love to win Pat’s new book. Thanks for the chance.

  71. Elizabeth McDonald April 20, 2011 at 10:44 am

    I have always collected cat prints – both cartoon cats and realistic cats…not very original, I know, but it does make sense for an obsessed cat lover to love cat fabrics, doesn’t it?

  72. Jenny April 20, 2011 at 10:53 am

    I would definitely have to say Alexander Henry makes up the bult of my novelty fabrics…but i do have red letter day and LOVE seeing what Pat did with that line!!

  73. Nicole April 20, 2011 at 10:56 am

    I don’t have many classic novelty prints, but I do have some great gnome fabrics from Heather Ross! She makes the most whimsical fabrics, and I would love to use a big batch of her fabrics in a quilt!

  74. Elizabeth McDonald April 20, 2011 at 11:00 am

    I have a confession to make: I cannot resist any novelty print that is also a square panel, and the tinier the squares, the better! It is such fun to add layers of color around the borders and come up with a larger block that features the special print!

  75. ~Kathleen April 20, 2011 at 11:08 am

    I don’t know that I have a collection of novelty prints, but I’m sure there are some here and there in my stash. I think the newer collections like Sherbet Pips and Far Far Away II are adorable, but, sadly, I don’t own any of those. Maybe someday!

  76. Julie in WA April 20, 2011 at 11:13 am


  77. Elizabeth McDonald April 20, 2011 at 11:16 am

    I love novelty prints that are shaped like square panels — just cannot resist them! They are fun to turn into more elaborate blocks…

  78. S.K. Krantz April 20, 2011 at 11:16 am

    I like the quilt with the use of the directional prints, it is pretty niffty.

  79. Robin April 20, 2011 at 11:22 am

    I don’t have too many novelty prints right now, only about 5 different ones. Fishy one, jelly bean one, some baby print ones and some flower ones. Thanks for the chance to win the book!

  80. Maribeth April 20, 2011 at 11:31 am

    I love kitschy vintage prints, Tammis Keefe is one of my favorites. Also the Lizzie House fabrics-Castle Peeps.

  81. Sharon April 20, 2011 at 11:32 am


  82. Cindy Dickinson April 20, 2011 at 11:34 am

    I have a huge amount of cat fabric, and Elvis fabric and Halloween, and Christmas!

  83. judith hogan April 20, 2011 at 11:35 am

    I have an extensive Christmas novelty print collection, but other than that I don’t have much. And like you, I’m sure the ones I do have, were impulse buys. I think a book like Pat’s that tells you so much about novelty prints, is a must-have for every quilter.

  84. Susan April 20, 2011 at 11:42 am

    I have some kids fabric (zoo animals, wild animals, red elephants etc.) that would make a good quilt.

  85. Jacque April 20, 2011 at 11:50 am

    Aww, put kittycats and fabric together…what’s not to love! Those are my favorite novelty prints!

  86. Lee Ann L. April 20, 2011 at 11:57 am

    I just finished collecting all the fabrics in the Max & Whiskers line. That is my current favorite and my most expensive purchases to date! And, not too long ago, I collected many vegetable print fabrics. I just loved them.

    Thank you for a chance to win one of these books! I will be used by me for sure!

  87. Jen B April 20, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    My fabric collection is small, but I do have novelty prints. Most were used for Christmas gifts (Cat in the Hat PJs and pillow cases for the kiddo and AH holiday print stockings).

  88. Jennifer Ashford April 20, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    I love that quilt w/ the orange border! I may have to make one. I’m planning a quilt for my nephew made from In the Beginnings Rocket Scientist fabric:


    Mine will be in gray though. :) Thanks for a chance to win!

  89. Jamie Todhunter April 20, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    My favorite food is chocolate also, especially dark chocolate. My novelty prints are mostly boy fabrics and also a collection of penguins.

  90. Frances Quigley April 20, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    I am just now starting to use the novelty prints. With a new granddaughter, these are the perfect cloths to use to make her one of a kind dresses. Love them.

  91. Lynda M April 20, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    Thanks for doing the hop! Pat’s book looks like great fun!
    I love kitchen fabrics and golf.
    I would love to have a copy!

  92. floribunda April 20, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    most of my novelty prints are food-related, but I have a few dogs, chickens and other birds too!

  93. Laura April 20, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    i dont realy have a collection of novelty prints cause i have never known how to sew them:) this book looks great!!

  94. Billie K April 20, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    I found myself buying cute novelty prints, but I never figured out what to do with them. Mostly are kid cute. When the little girl that used to live next door to me comes for a visit, we pick out a bunch for her to take home. She made me a pillow out of the weeeennie dog fabric…grin.

  95. SewCalGal April 20, 2011 at 12:57 pm

    Cute post Amy. And Pat’s new book looks great. Would love to win a copy. But I want to confess that as much as I’d love to win a copy for myself, I’m on a quest right now to win things to help raise money for Ronald McDonald Houses. Yes, Thearica (Pigtails & Quilts http://www.pigtalesandquilts.com) is collecting quilts and items to go into a quilty gift basket for a raffle, later this year, to benefit the Ronald McDonald Houses. So, I’m hoping to win a few items to go into these baskets if luck is on my side.


  96. Tiffany Sherman April 20, 2011 at 12:58 pm

    Bugs and Lizards and Dinos from my “boy days”:)

  97. Jeanne Gwin April 20, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    The novelty of Novelty fabric just never wears off. I have a wide range of subject matter in my stash. I just completed a pincushion for a swap and I hope the recipient is into “The Flower Child” look. It is definitely something I would not have thought to do at one time in my life. Hope she loves it, I do and I made one for me too. Sure hope my luck is good and I win a copy of this book. Can’t wait to read it and read it and read it some more.

  98. Pat V. April 20, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    That would be collections, plural. I have a large number of fabrics featuring cats, a complete set of NFL team fabrics, and a group of novelty prints where each print recognizes the interests of a family member. I am really hoping to find a good way to combine all the prints for my “family” quilt! Perhaps in Pat’s book…???

  99. Helen April 20, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    I have a (medium-sized!) box of novelty prints that I use for baby/toddler quilts. There are a variety patterns/pictures but all the fabrics contain bold primary colours and white so I can mix and match them. If I ever see any cat in the hat fabric I’d love to take it home and introduce it to the rest!

    P.S. I’m having trouble posting my comment so I apologise if I’ve accidentally commented twice!

    I have lots of novelties and have made several kiddie/baby quilts with them! It is so much fun to find ways to use them. I love my kitty fabrics!

  102. KarenMcCaffrey April 20, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    I have lots of novelties and have made several kiddie/baby quilts with them! It is so much fun to find ways to use them. My kitty collection is my favorite – I have over 30 different ones and want more!

  103. Patty April 20, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    I have a few novelty prints, I’ve collected them over the years for and eye spy quilt.

  104. LisaT April 20, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    I dont have much along the lines of novelty prints except a few scraps. Mostly I have prints along the lines of a particular line or colors such as red, white, and black or blue. Thanks!

  105. LisaT April 20, 2011 at 2:45 pm

    I dont have much along the lines of novelty prints except a few scraps. Wait, I do have some trees and birds…. Mostly I have prints along the lines of a particular line or colors such as red, white, and black or blue. Thanks!

  106. Julia P April 20, 2011 at 2:55 pm

    Thanks for being part of Pat’s blog hop. My novelty prints consist of sewing prints and Christmas prints. I love them but am often stuck on what to do with them. Looks like I’ll have to get Pat’s book!!

  107. Mary F April 20, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    I have quite a variety of novelty prints from critters to boxer dogs in boxer shorts. I have used quite a few to make pillow cases for the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge.

  108. Judy G April 20, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    I have two current novelty collections. One is kitchen appliances the other crazy chickens. Might need to combine the two in a quilt. What fun.

  109. Sorcha girl April 20, 2011 at 3:05 pm



  110. Sherry Book April 20, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    I have lots of novelty fabrics: farm animals, cats & dogs, dinosaurs, insects/frogs, and FOOD! Thanks for the chance at this giveaway. I would LOVE this book!

  111. Nancy April 20, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    I LOVE novelty fabrics. I have an embarrassing amount of “food” fabrics that run the gamet from veggies to junk food. I just bought the Hershey kiss fabric the other day while visiting my mom. At least I don’t have to worry about the calories!

  112. Sheryl April 20, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    I have tons of novelty prints I collected 11 years ago to make “I Spy” quilts for my first granddaughters. Since then I’ve collected many, many more (lots of Southwest) and will soon add the Arizona Centennial fabric to my collection.

    Enjoying the blog hop…

  113. Marilyn Teskey April 20, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    As an aspiring Gtamma, I had been collecting lots of kids novelty prints to use. Now that I am one, I don’t have as much time to sew but they did get the Hungry Caterpiller quilt, a railroad track quilt and a pastel animal ABC; Veggie Tales and Baby Genius aren’t done yet.

  114. Cindy J April 20, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    I’ve collected lots of children prints to make I Spy quilts with. I currently am collecting more girl prints (new grand daughter) and “junk food” prints!

  115. Cindy J April 20, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    My novelty stash is mostly made up of childrens prints for making I Spy quilts. I’m currently collecting more girly prints and “junk food” prints.

  116. JoAnne April 20, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    My collection is small, but consists of Christmas, children’s prints, and brights.

  117. Carolyn H. April 20, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    I have been collecting cat fabric and cat fur fabric, I plan on making appliqued cats. I would love to have this book to help me use some of my large quantity of novelty fabrics.

  118. Sandy A April 20, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    I don’t have much novelty fabric and what I do have is mostly Scottish Terrier related prints. :0) I do have a few Children’s prints and a great Valentine print I have no idea what to do with, so this book would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  119. Fran Harrington April 20, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    I don’t have any novelty fabric but have had my eye on Kate Spain’s 12 Days of Christmas for a Christmas quilt I want to make.

  120. Linda P. April 20, 2011 at 5:37 pm

    I have my share of novelty prints, but I like them so I don’t want to cut them – isn’t that silly!! I feel like they will always make more flower prints, but not unusual funny ones. LOL!!! I actually love the name of the book – it’s ingenius, fabulous!!!! I would love to win one of Pat’s books!! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  121. Beth April 20, 2011 at 5:41 pm

    EEK! I actually have a pretty big collection of novelty prints. I love them!

  122. Ann April 20, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    I have several novelty prints – some of my favs are my moose ones.

  123. Janet April 20, 2011 at 6:03 pm

    I made my granddaughter an I Spy quilt and collected novelties for more than a year for it. I only bought a fat quarter of any fabric, but then only used a 2 inch hexie from each. So I have quite the collection. Currently I’m collecting planes, boats, trains, snowmobiles, quads and motorcycles for my grandson’s quilt. Thanks for a chance to win.

  124. MarciaW April 20, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    I don’t have much fabric — the two groups of novelty fabric that I have are John Deere tractors and safari animals. Though, there are some on the market now that I like (later aligator).

  125. Jean Etheridge April 20, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    Really like that Larkspur fabric!

  126. Kristin M April 20, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    I’m a sucker for a cute novelty print. They are great for inspiration.

  127. 4dreamsr April 20, 2011 at 7:32 pm


  128. Beth April 20, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    I’m a newbie quilter, so I don’t have a stash of novelties yet :-) But the last line of fabrics I bought all had words on them–does that count?? :-)

  129. Brenda April 20, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    I pick up fabrics that have Scottie’s on them. I own a Scottie and cannot seem to pass them by. I do not have much of any other novelty fabrics unless I am buying some for a project for my grands.

  130. Roberta Johnson April 20, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    I have a Moda Tweet Tweet by Keiki jelly roll just waiting to be sewn into a quilt top. That’ll be my next project.

  131. Cindi P. April 20, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    I am not consistent in any way with my novelty prints, sometimes it’s the color, sometimes it’s the theme, sometimes just because :)

  132. Amy V April 20, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    Love black and whites. Also love really modern prints.

  133. Maureen April 20, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    I have wine related and tea related novelty prints along with children’s novelty prints.

  134. Maureen April 20, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    I have wine related and tea related novelty prints along with children novelty prints.

  135. pam April 20, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    I have mostly dogs and cat fabric. Love their little faces.

  136. debbie April 20, 2011 at 10:23 pm

    If I could add one thing it would be a long arm quilt machine. My favorite thing to eat is salad my way, which is actually many different ways.

    My novelty fabric includes many car/truck themed prints, dogs, animals in general, kid stuff, party stuff (cake, balloons, streamers). I’m sure there are more subjects if I went in there and looked…oh yeah veggies, lol.

  137. Beth T. April 20, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    When I first started quilting, I began collecting 1930’s prints, because my mom was born in the ’30’s and her baby quilt is made from those fabrics. I haven’t figured out how I want to use them yet…Pat’s book might come in very handy! Thanks for the giveaway.

  138. Kathlene April 20, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    I have so many. Probably my favorites would be Java, Latte, coffee, tea, cups, teapots….do you see where I am going? Oh, I forgot…CHOCOLATE!

  139. Allie April 20, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    I’m going to have to get this book – I have so many novelty prints, and most of them don’t go together, and I don’t know what to make with them! I’ve started buying fabric with my brain instead of my heart, but I still need to use the novelties I have in stash. Love the title of this book!

  140. Debbie Evans April 20, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    My collection of novelty prints! ?
    A small tote with Kid prints for several “I Spy Quilts” +
    Lots of others stacked by color group in an Ikea shelf unit. There are sure to be more scattered among other fabric groupings too.
    I always welcome more novelty prints ~ fun graphics, great colors.

  141. Jill April 20, 2011 at 11:36 pm


  142. Lori G. April 20, 2011 at 11:59 pm

    Most of my novelty prints are food or cooking related, though I also have several pieces of fall/Thanksgiving and Christmas/winter ones, too!

  143. mary April 21, 2011 at 4:26 am

    novelty fabrics are mny addiction. I have cats, dogs, apples, fruit, teacher type fabric, pencils, medical fabrics. I haven’t met one I didn’t like

  144. Monica April 21, 2011 at 6:35 am

    The modern studio might cause fading! But the light….oh the light! Even on a rainy, cloudy day…..of course you might not want to sew in your jammies! ;-)

  145. Jodi April 21, 2011 at 7:35 am


  146. Marcia Kosturock April 21, 2011 at 9:05 am

    Well, I don’t really have a big collection, but I’ve just started picking up a few prints here and there. I decided I needed to make a neat little hexagon novelty quilt.. or perhaps a cathedral windows novelty print quilt.. so that future grand children can have fun searching for their favorite print.

  147. Pat Bandura April 21, 2011 at 9:55 am

    I really don’t have many novelty prints. I do love Alexander Henry prints. I usually get some sort of animal print when I have a baby quilt to make

  148. Andee Neff April 21, 2011 at 10:16 am

    I really don’t have that many novelty prints yet…I had to have the “fruit ladies” fabric and I have some sports teams (Packers!) and a few other had to have ones but would love a good peek at this book to see what all can be done with novelty prints!

  149. Sandra Davidson April 21, 2011 at 10:21 am

    I have a lot of children prints and also christmas, I just pick them out because they are cute but never know what to do with them.
    This book looks like it has some great ideas.
    I wanted to tell you Amy, since I didn’t win your book I bought one and have really enjoyed looking through it. Now I have to just decide which one I need to do first. Blessings for a wonderful Easter.Sandra

  150. Toni Brooks April 21, 2011 at 11:33 am

    I am blessed with a whole room to sew in, now if I could just get past all the stash to find the sewing machine that would be wonderful. I love cow prints, so have a few of those as well as other animal prints that catch my eye.
    Thank you for the opportunity.

  151. Mary T. Salmon April 21, 2011 at 11:38 am

    Hi Amy!
    What a lovely site you have. I want to read every word! I guess if money were no object, I would like private lessons from creative quilters and artists…like you for instance, or Pat. She is adorable and has the most upbeat designs! They make me want to smile. I aim to get her book!

    I love novelty fabrics that make me smile. I have a collection of kitties and pigs riding motorcycles. Of course, I am partil to lambs for that is my nickname. I love children’s novelty fabrics for a quick charity quilt. Frankly, I love all novelty fabrics although I am not crazy about action figures.

    I plan on checking back with you. Thanks!

  152. Tracie April 21, 2011 at 11:41 am

    I love blog hops because I learn about different quilters. Nice to meet you! I collect Scottie dog fabrics, and particularly love a few Alexander Henry fabrics from the 90s (?) featuring my favorite fidos. I love them so much that I can’t cut them…until maybe now. I think I need Pat’s book. :)

  153. Bev April 21, 2011 at 11:49 am

    I don’t have too many novelty prints yet, mostly kid prints. I do have one large print that was the cause of my starting to quilt after fighting my friends for so long. I love this print and have been searching for the perfect pattern.

  154. Chris April 21, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    i love cute animal prints the best!

  155. Lee April 21, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    I have a variety but love animals and flowers!

  156. Patty V. April 21, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    I mostly have seasonal or baby novelty prints. I did however just buy a piece of the Larkspur Meadow and love the coordinates you have with it so I’ll be on the lookout for those.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of Pat’s book.

  157. MaryBeth April 21, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    I was in Williamsburg yesterday on the way home with the hubby. He graciously stopped at a local quilt store so I could shop – I think my trying to open the car door before we even stopped convinced him, LOL. Love 2 Quilt, don’t you just love that name? Anyway, they had a panel of fabric featuring different birds in each panel. I had to buy it (I have 6 bird feeders in my backyard) and think I’ll center them inside Ohio stars. South Seas Imports put out a line of novelty prints a few years ago featuring teddy bears – I bought a ton and have made some adorable baby quilts with them.

  158. Kim April 21, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    I have tons of Christmas novelty prints but now I am getting into Halloween novelty prints…….and have you seen all the darling owl prints out too? Oh so much fabric so little time to go buy it!

    thanks so much for a chance to win Pat’s new book………she is on a roll and just released her great Ireland book too.

    Happy sewing

  159. Carol April 21, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    I have a large collection of novelty prints but almost all of them have dark backgrounds – black, blue, or red. I need a few more with light coloured backgrounds.

  160. Sue in Marion, IN April 21, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    I have food novelty prints, kid novelty prints, Christmas novelty prints…..need some cupcakes!

  161. Magpie Sue April 21, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    I’d like to know what that trick is for keeping directional prints going the “right way.” That bugs me too! Meanwhile, I hope you get your studio space someday :- )

  162. aggiequilter April 21, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    I have novelty prints ranging from Alexander Henrys to baseball and softball, animals, jungle, bugs, food etc also some vintage Christmas prints I just love and some great Texas prints. Always on the lookout for more! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  163. Karen from Maine April 21, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    Just love novelty prints of food inspired prints. Also. like Christmas prints.

  164. Shirley B April 21, 2011 at 4:30 pm

    I don’t think I own any novelty prints but sure have enjoyed this blog hop and would love to win the book!

  165. Becky in Georgia April 21, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    I have a collection of dog prints. Lately, I’ve been collecting just prints with Dachshunds on them. Don’t know what I will use them for – oh, yea, I better look in Pat’s new book.

  166. marye April 21, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    tough to think ‘if money was no object’, mmmm. i have a fabric cave, so let’s start there. professional designer and organizer to have their way with my stuff and stash.make it pretty and a delight to be there. big brother camera so i can see outdoors while underground. fully stocked kitchenette with healthy snacks, that includes dark chocolate!!

  167. AbbyK April 21, 2011 at 4:54 pm

    My collection is small, a few Amy Butler and Alex Henrys but I’d LOVE to add to that and this book would be a great reason to! Thank you for the giveaway!!!

  168. Shirley in Canada April 21, 2011 at 4:58 pm

    Hmmm strawberries!!

    My favorite novelties to collect are to do with sewing! I have quite a few of them but just cannot bring myself to use them!! Thanks for being part of this blog & the giveaway!!

  169. Beth April 21, 2011 at 4:59 pm

    I bought a bunch of Dr. Seuss prints, and now don’t know what to do with them. The print seems to large to cut into blocks.

  170. Beth April 21, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Oh this book looks wonderful. What a great idea….inspiration to use our stash. I would pick the modern studio!

  171. Phyllis L April 21, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    I have a few noveltly prints, mainly the vintage 30’s animals, puppies, kittens, ducks, etc. I also have some tea and coffee themed prints. Phyllis

  172. Stacey Sharp April 21, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    I’m fascinated with toile fabric and every time I see it I promise myself that ‘if I just buy this one more piece I’ll be ready to start a project’.

  173. Linda in PA April 21, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    I have a drawer full of assorted novelty fabrics that I collected to make an “I Spy” quilt. I haven’t made the quilt yet, but I still have the fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

  174. Christy April 21, 2011 at 10:15 pm

    I have a fair amount of novelty prints. They’re mostly leftovers from making things for my son and from lap blankets I made for hospice. I’d love to get some ideas from Pat’s book.

  175. Debby, Chester NY April 21, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    I have a love for two types of novelty prints. Can’t decide which is my favorite. I love both cat prints & Christmas prints. Thanks for being a part of the blog hop. They’re so much fun!

    Chester, NY

  176. Aleta April 22, 2011 at 2:09 am

    I like anything with birds on it. I loved birds even before they were so popular. I also love bold colors.

  177. Anna McD April 22, 2011 at 5:41 am

    I have several with dachshunds….need to add to the novelty prints . Thanks for a chance to win!

  178. Mary Ann April 22, 2011 at 6:42 am

    Oh goodness, my collection is pretty small BUT I have several rolls of various prints I bought for a purpose long forgotten! I’d love to win this book, thanks for the chance…oh and the hint about Spoonflower!

  179. Deserae Fiedler April 22, 2011 at 7:40 am

    I have some fun fruit and veggie prints that I love! :)

  180. Cassy April 22, 2011 at 8:20 am

    I love novelty prints and I did buy them when $ wasn’t so scarce. :) But I never seem to know what to do with them. I think Pat has come to the rescue again! Yeah!!! I guess my favorite I have is a purple background with Maxine (the crotchety experienced woman) with all her quips. Some days I just “feel” Maxine’s world all around me. Makes me laugh. Off to see what I can do with some of the novelties I have. But then again, maybe I will just wait to get Pat’s book.

  181. MoeWest April 22, 2011 at 8:52 am

    I have Dr. Seuss, dance words, New York, zodiak, Maxine cartoons, fruit, wine bottles, beer steins, sports, rockets, and Mr. Fixit. All of these are for a specific project. If I bought every cute novelty fabric I saw, I would need a second job. Thanks for the chance to win Pat’s book.

  182. paulette doyle April 22, 2011 at 9:40 am

    I love any dang CUTE novelty print…blogged about it this morning…check it out! The secret to Novelty prints is it HAS to be dang cute!! I would love to win this book so that I could put some of this fabric to good use!! Thanks for the chance!!

  183. Me & My Stitches April 22, 2011 at 9:55 am

    I don’t have many – but I like Halloween, paper doll fabrics and anything quilty.

  184. cari janssen April 22, 2011 at 9:57 am

    ‘What A Novel Idea’ to use the novelty fabrics in my stash. I enjoy buying them but they seem to pile up waiting for the next I Spy quilt. Discovering new ways to present them in a quilt
    would be great. Waiting for the 27th to see if my name is mentioned. thanks, cari

  185. Regina April 22, 2011 at 10:22 am

    Lots of novelty FQ’s here – I have a son who likes robots, a hubby who is a boy scout, a mom who collects crabs, a MIL who likes pineapples and I collect turtles and bees….

  186. Carol Sc April 22, 2011 at 3:07 pm

    I have many novelty fabrics that I used for “I Spy” quilts — it would be wonderful to continue their use in different patterns. Also have golf and wine fabrics — used to make a wall hanging for my husband — and, no, he doesn’t drink wine, while golfing (at least, I don’t think he does!).

  187. Jan A. April 22, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    Great idea for a book! Thanks for the give away opportunity!

  188. LeAndrea April 22, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    Love your blog! Thanks for the chance to win a copy of Pat’s book.
    I love novelty prints! Bright colors, cartoon animals, and flowers and my favorites.

  189. Mimi April 22, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    My collection of novelty fabrics is growing steadily – this book would be so cool to get inspiration. Thanks for the chance! Pat rocks! Yay!

  190. Julie Naatz April 22, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    I’m going to check back to see what you do with those darling fabrics from Larkspur. I guess it doesn’t matter whether it is cutting edge design or novelty prints that remind us of what we have loved – it’ all good.

  191. Lynda Brown April 22, 2011 at 8:04 pm

    Sounds like a fun book with lots of good ideas. Novelty prints are always fun to use in a quilt.

  192. Colleen April 22, 2011 at 8:26 pm

    I have a large collection of at least 40 fat quarters most gained through a swap I did in the 90’s. Some of these cool prints are tiny Hawaiian penguins, funny mouths, and fabric that says moo!

  193. Jean B April 22, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    I have a LOT of novelty prints, cartoon characters, shoes, paper dolls (Not the recent ones), and many more. This book shows quite a few good ways to use these. I’d love to have this book! I’d be cutting up and sewing in no time. I might have to add some of that Larkspur fabric to my stash, too!

  194. Jackie April 22, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    wouldn’t it be fun to have unlimited funds??? and unlimited time? would want a bigger room with a longarm machine with computer to do it by itself ;)

  195. SewLindaAnn April 22, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    I have a pretty extensive collection of novelty prints myself. I get so attracted by cuteness and pretty colors sometimes that I impulsively buy it without a thought of what to use it for. Right now I’m really into Tiny Town. I’ve got a thing for houses, and who can resist tiny ones.!

  196. Trish April 22, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    I am addicted to bird and cupcake fabric !

  197. Nicole S April 22, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    I’m collecting novelty prints with trucks and construction vehicles for my grandson’s quilt.

  198. Leslie Schmidt April 22, 2011 at 11:52 pm

    I have lots of children’s prints, though I have no children to sew for. I have quite a few prints of vintage toys. And of course, many Christmas-themed fabrics. There are probably many more than I have forgotten about, since I know I haven’t skimped in that department!

  199. Jean April 23, 2011 at 5:05 am

    I love novelties and have quite a few in my fabric stash……..cats, dogs, food, holidays, sports, birds……..
    Would love a chance to win Pat’s new book-it looks to be fantastic.

  200. AnnieJ April 23, 2011 at 6:04 am

    I have so many novelty fabrics. For a long time I collected anything that I liked …. which turned out to be everything. I have a huge section of my stash devoted to novelty fabrics. I have curbed down my collecting … because I haven’t used it. So … you see this book would be an excellent purchase for me (or win .. hint!!). A Big Thanks to Pat for developing this book …. i will be owning it!!

  201. Kim Hausladen April 23, 2011 at 7:41 am

    It has been fun seeing other quilter’s blogs and their ideas. I have young children so it has been fun collecting novelty fabric that match their interests and activities.

  202. Jo in PA April 23, 2011 at 8:13 am

    Favorite Novelty prints:
    anything for boys… I sew for Project Linus and the fabric world is heavily tilted toward images for the female gender. So I gravitate buying wise toward the male gender pints to sew things boys would like. Do I like them best? No… I am a female after all!

  203. Joan V. April 23, 2011 at 9:04 am

    I have a bunch of tea-themed novelty prints that I’ve been wanting to put together in a quilt…I think “A Pair of Winners” may be the perfect pattern.

  204. Deb A April 23, 2011 at 10:06 am

    I really don’t have a large collection of novelty prints. Mainly for baby or small children quilts, or holiday specific. thanks for the chance to win.

  205. Wanda April 23, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    I have a large collection of novelty prints. Many are winter snowmen, snow boarding, others are things like tennis shoes, monsters, and motorcycles. Can you tell I have boys, not much in the way of little girl novelty prints. Winning Pat’s book would be wonderful.

  206. Beth Buning April 23, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    I don’t have many novelty fabrics right now, but I do love my retro penguin print. Owls are great too!

    Some novelty fabrics are very hard to resist. But mine usually relate to Christmas, fun kids’s prints or something to do with a family member’s hobby or obsession. My mother is nuts about sheep. But sometimes it’s hard to decide what to do with the fabric while still enjoying the print that caught my eye in the first place. Enjoy your blog!

    My favorite novelty prints right now are ones with kitchen motifs!

    Thanks for the chance to win…it is funny I didn’t think I had that many novelty prints in my stash but as I ‘hop’ along and see what each person presents I realize I have quite a selection from University of Texas to crawfish to Dr. Seuss and a bunch more that I am sure are packed away for a book like this!

    oh my…there must be some error when the comments is being transmitted…I hope it can be deciphered…else…in a gist I was trying to say your trifle looks good and would be also good if it could be turned into a novelty prints :)

    I love the novelty fabrics that have animals on them, from dogs to cats to chickens and cows. The colors are usually so happy and cheerful!

    I would say most of my novelty prints are children’s prints with animals – cats, dogs, jungle animals etc… perfect for baby quilts and fun crafts for my kids.

    I love novelty prints. I’ve used most of mine making pillowcases for grandchildren and others.

    I am a beginner so I don’t have much but I love fabrics with texts, sewing notions, alphabet etc. :D
    Thanks for the chance!

    My husband and I farm, so I am drawn to food on fabric.

    I’ve got a lot of novelty fabrics that I bought to make an i-spy quilt for my youngest. I made the quilt using 6″ squares or smaller of each piece in rainbow colour order, so have a fair bit of each fabric left over. This would be a great book to help use up the rest of them. Thanks for the chance.

    I have a collection of novelty fabrics that fills an entire plastic tub and I have divided into categories; farm animals, african animals, sea creatures, transport, bugs, birds and other! Happy quilting, Sue SA.

    My novelty collection is hearts. I just love hearts all shapes and sizes and styles from old fashion to contemporary hearts. Thanks for a chance to win one of Pat’s amazing books.

    My novelty prints are all stacked up on my stash shelf. I need this book!! It would be lovely to win, but if I don’t, I’ll buy it. I think I’ll dedicate the summer to sewing up my novelties!! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    Just started re-organizing my novelty fabric stash since the shelf is over-flowing right now. Enjoying rediscovering all the neat fabrics that I purchased and this great new pattern book would be great for some inspiration!

    I don’t have a lot of novelty fabric… but what I do have, I love! I could spend hours looking at novelty fabric in fabric stores, I’m too chicken to buy it because I don’t know what I will do with it!
