Hello Bridget!

This print is called "Bridget" and is was part of the Girlfriends collection by Sis Boom for Free Spirit fabrics. This was one of, if not the first quilting fabric that my wife purchased when she first got her sewing machine. She made some really great bags with it. There's even a baby blanket made from this print featured in the Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts book.

I've always loved this fabric. I started getting into quilting right around the time this line was discontinued, so I've been hoarding this fabric every chance I get. It remains one of my absolute faves. I still have a pretty sizable cut of it, along with some of the blue and green versions that I found on eBay.

So why am I sharing this today? Well, because quilting bro Scott over at Blue Nickel Studios recently posted a really fun interview with its designer, Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom. And, you guessed it, there's a giveaway involved!! Go check it out and tell him Quilt Dad sent'cha!


  1. Just came over to check out your blog. Nice work. See you are from Brooklyn, have a daughter there. She would wonder why anyone would leave NY. I think Cary is near UNC, another daughter went to grad school there. I envy your weather.
    Interested in seeing what you make with this fabric.

  2. Look at you !!!! Thanks so much for
    giving Scott and I a shout out!! All I want to say is real men quilt!!!!
    All the best to you!!Jennifer

  3. You are so nice to send over competition to a giveaway that you probabaly really want to win. I am going to go check it out now...

  4. btw, I think I'm the proud owner of one of those first few bags in this fabric. I still use it EVERY DAY. :)
    Thanks, Mrs. Quilt Dad!!
