Fat Quarter Idol Contest Week 2

This week's theme for the Fat Quarter Idol Contest, held by Sew, Mama, Sew!, is: Meet me at the Picnic! 

I found out after the first week that we are actually allowed to submit 2 different bundles for each week, so of course I did two!

Meet me at the Picnic makes me think of grass and flowers and butterflies which inspired my first bundle:

1. Pearl Bracelet Grass ~ Hello Pilgrim @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 2. Cashmere Blue Moon ~ Cocoon @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 3. Cars Blue COTTON CANVAS ~ Trefle @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 4. Canyon Stripe New Day ~ Hope Valley @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 5. Flying Geese Marine ~ Quilt Blocks @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 6. Liv Stone ~ Cocoon LINEN @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 7. Fern 1141 ~ Kona Cotton @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 8. Daisy Dots Green ~ Flea Market Fancy @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 9. Ruta Navy ~ Echo @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 10. Fall Leaf ~ Summersville @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 11. Ditty Cat Eye ~ Gypsy Caravan @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 12. Spring Tulips Aqua ~ Piccadilly @ Sew,Mama,Sew!

 I then thought of a picnic in the summer time when it's warm and fun which inspired my second bundle:

1. Pearl Bracelet Yellow ~ Outfoxed @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 2. Bright Pink 1049 ~ Kona Cotton @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 3. Triangles Gold ~ Alegria ORGANIC @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 4. Magnolia Road Spectrum ~ Quilt Blocks @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 5. Ornament Persian Rose ~ Tradewinds @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 6. Woodcut Yellow ~ Multi Black ~ Chickadee @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 7. Savannah Blossom ~ Karavan @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 8. Buttercup 1056 ~ Kona Cotton @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 9. Flying Geese Spectrum ~ Quilt Blocks @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 10. Flying Stripe Spectrum Yellow ~ Quilt Blocks @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 11. Stars Spectrum Fuchsia ~ Quilt Blocks @ Sew,Mama,Sew!, 12. Tonal Hot Pink ~ Pezzy Print @ Sew,Mama,Sew!

After seeing both bundles together in this post, I think I would definitely lean towards the pink and yellow more than the blue and green, but I think either would look great for a picnic quilt!

If you missed my post the first week, here are some details about the contest:

Each week for 4 weeks, participants will be given a theme and then will choose 12 fabrics that fit that theme from Sew, Mama, Sew's online fabric shop. Once you have selected your fabrics, you will need to "pin" each fabric on a Pinterest board. Each week the 10 best fabric bundles will be selected and opened to a public vote to choose the winner.  If you win, you and your bundle will be featured on the Sew, Mama, Sew blog, the bundle will be for sale in the online shop and  you will get a fat quarter bundle of the 12 fabrics you selected sent to your home for free!

Can't wait to see all the beautiful bundles that make it to the top ten this week!
