DAY 1: Duck Egg Threads

Duck Egg Threads is a specialist online fabric shop selling wide range of Liberty Tana Lawn prints (both the classics and the seasonal releases). Tailored to quilters and crafters, who often do not need to buy larger pieces of a premium fabric when only a little is needed, their Liberty Tana Lawn is sold in the very useable sizes of fat eighths (33cm x 50cm) and fat sixteenths (33cm x 25cm). They also have a

Duck Egg Threads also stocks the Pure Elements line of solids from Art Gallery Fabrics – which work really well with Liberty lawn, as they have a very similar feel. Really usefully, there’s also a range of notions that’s small, but absolutely perfectly formed if you are interested in hand sewing and/or English Paper piecing – and who isn’t when you are sewing with Liberty lawn? So there are Aurifil threads in all the right colours (shades of grey and cream of course!), Black Gold needles, Clover clips, quilting pins, and my favourite Sewline glue pen, amongst other goodies.

I know you want to know about the prize…. can you guess??

  3. Beautiful! I would make a cushion for my chair in the garden for the wonderful summer we are hoing yo have, tea scones sun and a beautiful cushion to rest on x heaven x

  4. Baby quilt! My London grandbaby will get a new quilt in time for Christmas. I am hoping the fabrics could go to my London daughter if I win, even though I live in Australia.

  5. It would have to be a clamshell quilt if I am picked – no idea what that would involve but I already have some Pure Elements fabric from Duck Egg so they could go in too.
    And some of the stuff I just bought after signing up to their Instagram……
    Oh dear …its already getting expensive ……….

  15. Pick me please. These are beautiful, I would try to make a cushion or my first quilt. I’m not sure if they’d be a bit wasted on me though as I’m brand new to quilting. Good luck to everyone 😊 Fingers crossed 🤞🏻

  16. I need to make a bed quilt for a room that doesn’t get much light. These fabrics would really add some zing.

  17. Oh my, the fabrics are beautiful. Reading your blog has inspired me to want to start quilting again after 20+ years. This is the fabric collection to push me to do it! X

  18. The multi coloured Reef would become a hair band and matching accessories and the test would become a proper cushion for my desk chair in my sewing room/office, and perhaps some desk accessories too…… That’s is my little girl doesn’t claim it all first!

  19. I have been using Liberty fabrics for a while now and some more to use making hexies would be wonderful. Belated congratulations on your win. Well deserved.

  23. I’m signed up for the Duck Egg Threads news letter and have now added them to my instagram as well… seeing all the lovely posts! 😍

  24. I’m making a Farmers Wife Quilt using Liberty Tana Lawn. I’d never used it before last year and am absolutely hooked…it is so beautiful to sew with. If I won this give away I would add these to the quilt! I’m buying a new bundle each quarter and making two blocks per week…’s going to take me all of 2017 to make the top! Next year quilting it! Please pick me!!

  25. These are so beautiful 🙂 – I would definitely have a go at some quilting/patchwork, I did some hexagons a long time ago but didn’t feel as though I could ever make a quilt so I would try making smaller things to start with, I follow Duck Egg Threads on Instagram

  26. Pick me. They are stunning and would be the start of my liberty fabric collection. I’m new to sewing and hadn’t realised just how many stunning fabrics there are in the world!

  27. And I follow duck egg threads on instagram, ‘though I’m unsure how wise it is to have so much temptation delivered straight to me😃

  28. Oh, how lovely. I’m slowly acquiring little bits and pieces of liberty lawn and making a scrappy hexie collection. Would love to have some fresh new fabric options😃

  29. Gorgeous fabrics! I am teaching myself EPP and am making mini hexies- this would make a fab hexie dolly quilt!

  32. I would make summer EPP cushions for white-washed rattan chairs for my Sussex garden by the sea. I already follow Duck Egg Threads on Instagram.

  33. What beautiful fabric.. one in particular would be perfect for bedding in the children’s 1/24th scale 1970’s retro creation I am making at the moment. 💕💕

  34. And finally……am also now signed up to Duck Egg Threads’ newsletter. Those lovely Liberty pieces are ideal for EPP ❤️

  36. These fabrics are just gorgeous. Fingers crossed and there are so many things I could make with these fabrics I’ll start planning – just in case 😀 x

  37. I know just what I would do with the Castaway fabric……..put it towards making some more Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses EPP!

  38. I never win anything but – as they say you have to be in it to win it. The thought of such lovely things.

  39. Lovely designs and colours! Duck Egg Threads now followed on Instagram and also subscribed to. 😊 Happy Birthday from another March “baby”!

  40. What a fantastic giveaway 😄 I’ve recently taken up quilting so these would be great to help build my stash

  41. Those fabrics are absolutely gorgeous! I’m toying with the idea of making some storage baskets for my craft table and these would be perfect 🙂

  42. I’m making an all Liberty patchwork quilt so they’d probably go into those of making photo frames. I have a slightly unhealthy Liberty obsession!

  43. I’d add them to my collection that I’m slowly building with the plan of one day having enough to make a quilt of simple sahed liberty squares

  44. Thank you Ali. As you know I too adore Liberty Tana lawn with Pure Elements-they really are a match made in heaven. I’m not sure what I’ll do with them yet but it’s certain to be gorgeous ☺️

  45. Hi. What a great giveaway! I already am signed up to the Duck Egg Threads newsletter and am now following them on Instagram.

  46. Oh wow. I would try some slightly larger epp than my usual tiny hexies!
    Or maybe even some clamshells!

  47. I would love to win these 🙂 I bought some mixed liberty pieces from you a few years ago and made a fauxidermy animal head (called Beryl… She now lives on our wall) so I’m in desperate need of replenishing my stash for the next creation 🙂 x

  48. I would use them to feature in some of the blocks I want to make for my 1930s farmers wife quilt. The colours would work so well and provide amazing contrast.😍

  49. Oh my goodness Ali what a wondrous prize who wouldn’t want to win these lovely things. Fingers crossed and good luck to everyone else.
    Big hugs
