Fabric Friday {Poppy Seed Fabrics feature & GIVEAWAY}

{This giveaway is now closed}

 I am so excited to host another fabulous giveaway from an awesome shop!  Poppy Seed Fabrics is giving YOU the chance to win this amazing fat quarter bundle.


There are 7 fabulous fat quarters in this pack.
Each fat quarter measures 18" x 22."

  Read on to get to know them a little better, check out their fabrics, and enter to win the fat quarter bundle!



Tell us a little bit about yourself.

At PoppySeed Fabrics, addiction to fabrics is a understatement, we LOVE fabric and can't keep our hands off the best stuff! We carry a wide variety of fabrics from many of the most popular designers including Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Patty Young, Riley Blake, just to name a few. We carry Japanese imports including Echino Nico, Kokka, and many novelty/anime prints. You'll find patterns, trims, pre-cuts, minky, knits, flannel, and rose cuddle in our shop as well. We are a family run business and work very hard to bring excellent customer service, same day shipping and the best selection of modern fabric.
We love our customers, especially those that return!!!

We are originally from Hawaii, the island of Oahu, Kaneohe to be specific. We have been living in Las Vegas for the past 4.5 yrs. It's a big change from living 15 min from the beach to now living more than 4 hours. But we make this up by getting in many road trips to Utah to visit our closest relatives.

We have been selling fabric on Etsy for almost 2 yrs and have loved every min of it. We also have a handmade shop which was opened first called Cuddle With Aloha, www.etsy.com/shop/cuddlewithaloha when we have the time to sew and sell we post items there.

We love what we do, especially that it allows us to be with our family, raise our kid and work together. We hope you stop on by, pick up some fabric and become our forever customers. :)


Were there any challenging obstacles you had to overcome to get started?

Our biggest challenge when starting our business was to figure out which fabric selection to carry in our shoppe. We knew we couldn't carry everything since there are so many awesome designers, fabrics and styles to choose from. We hope our customers enjoy our choices and find what there looking for.

Where does your inspiration come from?
I love everything modern! Seeing modern fabric being used to create modern designs especially on quilts inspire me. Quilting is a new found love, and being able to see more talented quilters create a modern design from fabrics I love it. It just makes my creative juices flow.
Deceased or living, whose studio would you raid?
Wow! I would have to say Amy Butler. She is so talented and was actually one of our first designers of fabrics we started to carry. All because of her full moon polka dots from her lotus collection that made me fall in love.


What do you like to do outside of work?

  When were not working, we love hanging out as a family. We have a 3 yr. old and she keeps us really busy. We currently reside in Nevada, but are from Hawaii so heading to the beach soaking up the sun is what would take all my time.

What is success to you?

Being successful is not measured by what you have, but who you have to spend it with. Working this business as a family is everything, our success is based off of our combined work and were loving every min of it.

Where would you like to be in the next decade?
This is a fun question, hmm as a business we would love to be expanded so big we would need to employ more family members. Since this is a family business our love for fabric and creating runs deep. Being able to continue to do something we love will be a great blessing.  

Here are just a few fun prints Poppy Seed has to offer, but make sure you check out their store because they offer a lot of choices!







I used 3 of their fabrics for this projectAnd if you look closely, you're getting in the bundle pack the blue hippos but in gray!

Fat quarters used in my project were c/o Poppy Seed Fabrics, and that did not influence my opinion of the shop.  What I typed was truly my opinion and experience with their fabrics.

  30. I am following their blog! Thanks for another great giveaway :)

    @Liz--a fat quarter is called such because of the way it is cut--instead of a long skinny piece of fabric that is 9" by 44", it is a shorter and wider 18" x 22" piece. There are still 4 quarter pieces of fabric per yard, but what you can do with a fat quarter is so much more versatile!
