celebrating 10 years with a giveaway from monaluna organic fabric

We’re continuing our week of giveaways today with a gift for one reader from our friends at Monaluna Organic Fabric. Read to the bottom of the post to learn how you can enter.

Monoluna Giveaway

Jennifer Moore, of Monaluna Organic Fabrics, always puts together the most adorable displays for Quilt Market.  When I saw her in Houston 1 1/2 years ago (with her husband, who often comes along to help out), she had a tiny little house in her booth, along with a grassy front yard if I recall correctly. It was adorable. They took photos of me as a little souvenir. Mostly I search out Jennifer at Market because I enjoy chatting with her. And also because she produces lovely fabrics!

Like I’ve already said several times this week, I believe in supporting other indie businesses and I appreciate the love and care they put into their fabrics. I chose three Monaluna organic fabrics for one of our upcoming Spring Oliver + S spring patterns (I’ll introduce you to it next week!) and was so thrilled with the quality of the fabric as well as the printing. Beautiful colors and designs.

Jennifer often uses our patterns to sew samples for her Quilt Market booth and for photo shoots, and she sent me some of those photos to share with you. Here’s the Roller Skate Dress (with added pockets per the model’s request!) used for one of Monaluna’s collections.

Monaluna Journey Lawn

And here’s the Hide-and-Seek Dress sewn in a poplin. (You’ll see this paintbrush print again next week in our spring pattern release!)

Monaluna has kindly offered one winner two 3-yard cuts from either their new Journey collection or from their Simple Life knits. You’re going to love both collections.

The Journey collection features 11 prints on poplin and six on cotton lawn.

Journey Poplin

Journey Lawn

The Simple Life knits collection features Scandinavian-inspired prints and versatile solids. Wouldn’t these be great for the Girl on the Go pattern? (The collection would work well with many of our other knit patterns from both Oliver + S and Liesl + Co. as well.)

To enter to win two three-yard cuts of the fabric of your choice from either of these collections, leave a comment telling us which of the two you would choose to sew with first–Simple Life knits or Journey wovens. One entry per person, please. We will close comments on this post and choose the winner (with the assistance of random.org) on Thursday, March 22 at 9:00 AM ET. The winner will be notified by email.

IMPORTANT: do not check the box to subscribe to comments on this post unless you’re running a test to determine which of these two collections is more popular with Oliver + S blog readers and you need to capture each response individually!

      Knits! Making clothes for my grandchildren would suit me fine.

  14. Wendy

    The journey collection.

  15. Emily Watson

    Simple life knits, without a doubt. Love love love sewing with knot fabrics, so many lovely tops i could make my daughter with those patterns. Plus I really love those type of repetitive patterns, they always remind me a bit of Orla Kiely.

  29. Ava

    Would love the Journey, the paintbrush and birdseed prints are great.

  30. aprilshowers

    Oh the lawn of Journey… *swoon*

  44. Amanda norell

    The simple life knits collection. I like the colors

  115. Nancy K

    Tough choice! I think I’d go for the journey woven collection though

  116. Sarah Cross

    I would probably sew with the knit first. I can always whip up something pretty fast with a knit and who doesnt like immediate gratification?

  117. Enbee

    The journey collection – my son loves bears and has been feeling a little neglected with my sewing lately, as I’ve been preparing for his baby sister’s arrival.

  118. María

    Maybe knits first… And wovens right afterwards!!!

  119. Amber

    This is a really tough choice– because I sew with both knits and wovens and both collections are really beautiful! I think I’d have to go with Journey, though. Beautiful fabrics I’m glad to know about now.

  120. SaraJane Kramer

    I would choose Blackbird Poplin and Little Leaves Organic Knit. One from each collection! I love Monaluna fabrics. I just bought some of the Desert Floral lawn fabric to make a shirt. The little succulents are just too cute!

  121. Rebecca

    I would choose the Simple Life knits. Beautiful!

  122. Tough decision! I love the blues of the knits so I guess it would have to be Simple Life knits for me!

  123. Julie S

    Simple Life knits! The bear print would make an adorable shirt for my son!

  124. Mindy

    Tough choice, but I think I’d go with the Simple Life knits.

  125. Bree Crocetti

    Journey Wovens please! I would love to win!

  126. Leah

    Simple life knit!

  127. Rebecca Pelletier

    The journey collection with the cotton lawn would be so lovely to sew with. ❤

  128. Melani

    Both are great! My daughter would love the coyotes, and my son would flip for the bears!

  129. Suzie

    For me, I would definitely choose the journey wovens. But for kids, I think I would go for the knits, since they’re so quick to whip up.

  130. Marika

    I would love the wovens. That cactus print is so fun! If I won, I’d sew up matching outfits for me and my little girl.

  131. Amorette

    The journey wovens are beautiful and remind me of the desert where I grew up. Would make a lovely blouse!

  132. Marie

    I would choose the knit collection.

  133. Stacy

    I LOVE the Journey collection.

  134. Audrey

    The Journey collection. Love the birds and seed patterns!

  138. Nancy

    Both great collections but I do love the Journey prints. Would like to try the lawns.

  139. Nicole

    The journey wovens look wonderful.

  140. I would chose Journey woven prints but both are really nice.

  141. whitner

    Oh my gosh – the Journey in lawn would be so delicious in our hot summers!

  142. I would choose the knits!

  143. Simple life knits 🙂

  144. Erika

    The journey prints look dreamy! I would choose those first!

  145. Oh, what fun to add to the fabric stash! I’m seeing quilt backing out of birdseed poplin. There are some lovely combos, and I must say I really like Skulls and Roses for a skirt for myself.

  146. Michelle

    I would choose Journey. Lawn is the perfect fabric for south Texas!

  147. Stephanie Spann

    I’m in love with the Desert Floral print, and since I love lawn so much, that’s probably straight where I’d go!

    P.S. I love the different reasons you write each day for people to not check the “Subscribe…” box. Amusing.

  148. Sherry Cragen

    Journey women’s. Would love to try sewing something out of lawn.

  149. Holly Dumont

    Journey first. Not that I don’t l love those Scandi bears. But summer is coming and with it the need for lawn!

  150. Kathleen Carlsen

    Both are lovely, but I tend to reproduce historical (early 20th century) clothes, poplin would probably be more appropriate.

  151. Eleni O'Neill

    I love the journey collection wovens because that crow print is amazing!

  152. Joanna Szarkowski

    Coyotes, and moons, and bears oh my!

  154. Alicia

    I would choose the Journey first. : )

  155. Kae

    Such a difficult question, but I would sew first with Simple Life knits, because knits can be quickly sewn with a serger.

  156. I love the journey collection, it’s gorgeous.

  157. Sewfy Keeler

    I would really love to get my hands on the Birdseed Blue lawn and the Blackbird poplin! So lovely!

  158. Donna

    Journey woven, please! I have a daughter who just loves coyotes, and I love the desert floral lawn!

  159. Rebecca Ark

    So beautiful! The difficult part would be deciding what in the world to make!

  160. Jessica

    I usually choose knits but those coyotes! My son would love them.

  161. I’d love the Bear Family and Hydrangea knits.

  162. Ashley

    The journey collection…. Love the birdseed prints!!!

  193. Cindi

    I would love the knit patterns – they all balance each other beautifully.

  194. Amanda Correa

  231. Erica

  237. Karen Brown

    Hard to choose. Both so beautiful… but I’m especially taken with Paintbrush in lawn from the Journey collection.

  241. Simple Life Knits

  242. Ann

    The wovens. I can envisage a library dress sewn in the desert rose poplin with the bird seed as the accent on blue or pink. Probably both as i have one blue loving daughter and one pink loving daughter.
