Ripley's Challenge - March

Another month, another Ripley's Challenge - and seeing as it's been such a beautiful weekend, how could we help but to kit Ripley out in this amazingly sun-shiney print?
Competition closed for this month - and the winner is ..... Mokki!! Congrats!  and to prove it, here's the random number generator ...

Well done Mokki - we'll be in touch to arrange your prize.  Thanks for entering folks and come back again next month for another chance to win some free fabric.

You all know the drill by now: go visit our website and tell us which fabric she is sporting.  In order to enter you need to do two things:
1 - add a comment on the post telling us what you'd make with this fabric, or alternatively, what's on your sewing table this week.
2 - tell us the name of the fabric in an email sent to
Whatever you do, DO NOT mention the name of the fabric on your comment on the post - sort of defeats the whole object, doesn't it?

We'll then pick a winner at random next week and send you a fat quarter of a fabric of your choice. Et Voila! Easy peasy way to build your stack.

So, this week Ripley is mainly wearing ...... (shhhh - just in an email - remember!)

Hope you've all had a brilliant weekend. What have you been up to?  I have neglected the sewing I was supposed to be doing in order to make the most of the sunshine.  Some desperately needed garden jobs are now underway.  I'd like to say finished, but alas, no.  I did finally get to watch the first episode of GBSB (I've had classes to run every Tuesday since it began - terrible timing) it was brilliant! Don't give the rest away, please.  Going to try to catch up on the rest this week.

Ok, so off to browse the Fabric HQ website with you and see if you can't locate that lovely fabric. 
You've got until midnight on Saturday 15th - I'll announce the winner next Sunday. Sorry, been manic the past few days - deadline extended until Midnight Wednesday 19th!

Good luck everyone!


  1. On my sewing table this week is my first ever quilt for my first niece. I just need to wait for dual feed foot to arrive and then you can watch the progress on Some of this fabric would be perfect for a spring quilt - lovely zippy fabric!

  2. A spring quilt would be great, but my sewing time's pretty limited at the moment so it might need to be a quilted cushion for me :D

  3. I'm in the middle of making an apron for my mum. Love how cheerful ripleys fabric is.

  4. I think happy sunshine-y fabric would be great as a trimmed set of guest towels!

  5. The lack of a sewing table and even my sewing machine since I got married means that I have now gone for a highly portable English Paper Piecing quilt - one heaxgon basted, thousands to go!
