Discovering Liz Scott & Giveaway

****WINNER CHOSEN****
Victoria Paige.
Thanks!!

Yep I have discovered Liz and Riley :)

She is one of Moda's newest designers. 
 Her first line called Sugar Pop doesn't disappoint.
  It's bold and bright with a 70's feel.

Once Sugar Pop was available I had to get a charm pack for this little quilt.


The pattern I used for this top is called Posey Time
 by Bunnyhill designs {psst it's on sale!}.

Since I was so smitten with Sugar Pop, Paper Pie blog {Liz's blog} and Liz, I decided to ask her a few questions about her designing and what the future holds.
Several charming emails later, we had a plan worked out. I would interview her AND she would provide a pack of 8 fat quarters for one of my lucky readers.
She's THAT cool.

Here's what Liz had to share with me.

Me: How did you get involved with fabric design and how long have you been designing?

Liz:  I am a graphic designer by trade, but have always been a crafter and a maker of things as well. Add fabric addict to the list and now you see where I'm heading. A few years ago I began using Spoonflower.com to print some of my designs and I absolutely fell in love! The service allowed me to upload my designs and have them printed on fabric and mailed back to me. I designed print after print and began selling them in my WonderFluff shop at Etsy. I have been designing professionally for 10 years or so and I have been doing textile and surface design for the past 2 years.
Me:  Where did you draw your inspiration for Sugar Pop?

Liz: I love big, bright florals and 70s style. I also love nature and these are the things I was thinking about when designing the actual prints. The colors, however, were inspired by all things sweet! My love of chocolate is there, as well as the vibrant candy coated hues that you might see in the ice cream parlor and even the bakery.

Me: Is Sugar Pop your first licensed design?


Liz: Sugar Pop is my first licensed fabric design collection, but I am also a freelance graphic and surface designer. I do all sorts of different projects from bedding to stationery.
Me: Can you reveal if you have another fabric line coming?
Liz: Yes I can, and yes I do! I am super excited for this one to be announced in July and to be in stores this coming winter.


Me: Are you a quilter?
Liz: I am a very beginner, newbie quilter. I love quilting and fell in love with quilts in general on m many trips to the flea market and thrift stores. I love the work and the craftsmanship that goes into each quilt, not to mention the love that is so apparent with every little stitch. I work on my Sugar Pop quilt little by little, I savor and enjoy every minute I get to spend with it and focus more on the process of quilting than the actual end product.

If you'd like to be entered for the giveaway of 8 fat quarters of Sugar Pop by Liz Scott. 
 Here's all you have to do:
What is is your favorite city, whether you've been there or not,
either real or imagined, and why?

Liz shared that her favorite city is Portland, Oregon because the nature is abundant, the people are smiley, and there is a lot of creativity happening.
My favorite city is Paris France. I have never been there but it is the first place I want to visit in Europe. I have heard so many wonderful things about Paris.

Tell us your favorite city and why in the comments and win!
I'll randomly select a winner on 3/28/11.

My favorite city is Miami. It's where I live. I'll soon be moving to London, which I'm very excited about, but will definitely miss the sun and warmth!

Lindsay Conner said...

My favorite city is Las Vegas. No, I don't like to "sin" there, but I love the fancy restaurants, pretty mountain views and the glitter of the Strip at night!

cabesh said...

I'm having a hard time choosing between my favorite city that I've been to and my favorite one I want to go to...

I'll go with the one I've been to: Seattle. I love that Seattle is a good sized city, but doesn't feel it--you still have the woodsy, outdoorsy feel of the Pacific Northwest.

Alassel said...

Love the green colorway!

My favorite city is Seattle, because that's where I live and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. :)

Katie B. said...

Chicago! Food, museums, shopping. The best.

Just One More Thing said...

I love York, Maine and Lancaster Pa -- beautiful places we are blessed to visti.

Jen said...

My favorite city is Paris France. I've been twice now and could probably go back 1000 more times. It's just such a great place to visit.

Sallie said...

Paris, France - so much to do there and all the art museums

Wanda said...

My favorite city is right where I am. I'm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I have all 4 seasons, I can see the mountains everywhere I go, I'm considered in the country but I'm close enough to "town" that I can get what I need within a short drive. It's very restfull! I like my home!!!

Joan and Kevin said...

My favorite city is Pittsburgh. My husband and I went two years ago. It is beautiful and easy to get around. It was a pleasant surprise.

mariebeers said...

I live in a small town west of Salem, Oregon and love it as you can see mountains coming and going when going into the "big city".

upstateLisa said...

So many places, so little time. I just visited Otrabanda and Punda on the island of Curaçao and the buildings were so colorful. I also loved all the art galleries of London in the 80s when I visited.

Vicki W said...

Great interview. She seems like a really lovely person! My favorite city is London.

A.J. Dub. said...

I don't really have a favorite that I have been to other than maybe Salt Lake, just because it is clean and has some fun little bakeries and shops and historical sites. I think Rome might be a favorite if I ever get to go.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

What a nice line...and thank you for this chance..my favorite city is Chicago,Ills. I only visited it once..it was in Nov. and quite cool. It is the windy city...lol. But I loved all the lovely restaraunts...huge as they are; and got to eat lunch at the top of the John Hancock Tower...the food, drink and the view was fantastic!!!

James-Linda said...

MY FAVORITE CITY IS MY OWN-BOZEMAN,MONTANA! THANKS SO FOR SHARING!

jldouglas@wispwest.net

Heather said...

I love Kodiak, Alaska because its wear I'm living right now. Its rustic, quiet, friendly, peaceful, and beautiful all year! I do love Portland too because it is home where my family is and wear I grew up.

Laura said...

Rome! We were there a few years ago and I would love to go back! So beautiful and the people are very friendly.

robin said...

I'm not really a city person, but I'd say Seattle - lots to do, and love that part of the country.

Deb said...

Estes Park, Colorado. You have the beautiful landscapes and then when you go into the Rocky Mountains you get spectacular views that are ever changing.

Mary Grace McNamara said...

I've been to lots of cities in my life, but there really is no place like home. Leominster, Massachusetts has been my home for the past 26 years and it's my favorite place to be! It has everything I need or want, lots of parks for the kids, a good yarn shop and even a Joann's so I don't have to travel far to get thread and batting! Fabric is mostly purchased online!

Love that fabric!

MGM

Marie said...

My favorite city is Spokane, WA because it was a great place to raise my teenage daughters when we moved from So. California to get somewhere quiet and calm. That is Spokane in a nutshell.

Jamie Lee said...

My favorite city is Montreal--my husband took me there when we were only dating and I fell in love with both him and the city. Now, three kids later, we hope to go back for our 10 year anniversary:)

Love the new fabric line!

Erin said...

My favorite city is Florence, Italy. We had such a wonderful day and evening there during a whirlwind tour of Italy, that I want to go back and explore it more - to see all the amazing artworks and architecture, as well as the amazing FOOD! Stateside, I would have to say Boston for the same reasons - we had a great time and I want to go back and check out more of the amazing sights!

Carrie said...

Boston, Mass! I love all the history there, I love the way they talk, it's all great! I've been there twice and I can't wait till my kids are old enough to go and appreciate all Boston has to offer!

Kelly O. said...

My fave city is Boston.
I've never been but I've always wanted to ever since watching the Parent Trap as a kid! silly, I know!

Linwood & Margaret said...

My favorite city is where I moved to three years ago when I remarried. We had sat next to each other in our high school band and did not hear from or see each other for over 40 years. Together we have 6 children and 15 grandchildren. Life is wonderful.

Merry Made Quilts said...

My favorite city is Seoul. I've not been there yet but it's where my heart is. We're adopting and will be there soon!!

Cathy said...

So hard to pick I have 2 so I hope this is not breaking the rules. I love NYC because it is so old and you can get anywhere by the subway. My 2nd is Vince Beach California. The reason I love Vince Beach is the ocean and how everyone there is from every walk of life and no one looks down upon anyone.

Jayne said...

I'm going to go with Florence, Italy. Not only does Florence boast some of the most spectacular artwork of any other city (possible exception Paris), it is situated in a gorgeous region of Italy that begs to be explored. Also, the shopping here is wonderful!! From jewelry to leather, you can't go wrong. Then there's the food - OMG, it truly awakens the taste buds!! There's a fantastic little gelato shop - anybody want to go?

Jayne

WoolenSails said...

I love Devon, England. A fellow blogger lives there and I love seeing the photos of her area, would love to visit there and ride the country side on my bike.

Debbie

Wilma NC said...

ASheville, NC hands down!! It's where I live and it is an outdoor paradise.

Hattie said...

Debra said...

My favorite city is Tyrone,Pa. Its where I was raised and my Mom still lives there, so I can always call it home!

badlandsquilts said...

What a great question & how fun to read all the comments! I'd have to say Lake Tahoe, CA. I loved the gorgeous views and the relaxing atmosphere.

Victoria Paige said...

My favorite city is New York. I love the anonymity of it. Not to mention the food. There so so many great things about New York, it's hard to just pick one.

I think the culture and various cuisines are why it's my favorite city. I'd never want to live there, though. Too much hustle and bustle.

Jackie said...

My favorite city is Honolulu - I went there with my hubby and didn't want to leave!

gag7949 said...

Stacy said...

oooh so many wonderful places!

my favorite would be Madras, India. I think it's name has changed to Chennai since I was there, but it's amazing - the people are warm, inviting and giving, the art and temples are beautiful and the history - oh the history! Plus, the food is amazing.

I'd go back in a minute.

Kelli said...

Goodness, I don't know if I could name a favorite city as I'm a small-town kind of girl. Big cities make me nervous! But I'd have to say Atlanta I guess, because the shopping is great there, the Braves play there and it's the closest big city to me (at a whopping 6 hours!!). Orlando is closer, but I grew up outside of there and it just doesn't seem as big-city as Atlanta.

Baskets Of Quilts said...

I lived 1 year in Southern France - and close by was the City of Carcassone with its incredible castle! History, great weather, delicious food - what more do you need?

I grew up in Cape Town Sth Africa, which is an awesome city, but I also really love Adelaide Australia, where I live now, I think this is my favourite city. It has everything I want and need, is sizeable but still feels small, awesome climate (even with the wonky changes over the last few years) and I've never thought, I wish I lived somewhere else instead :)

I am using charm packs of Sugar Pop at the moment, would love to play with FQ's

sarahbethe said...

This is tough for me as I'm more of a small-town girl. But I do like Washington, DC because of the wonderful museums. And I'm a bit biased because I'm visiting there right now!

Sue said...

My favourite city is Carcassone in the south of France. I first read about it in Kate Mosse's book Labyrinth. The walled city is amazing, I got to wander around there in October 2008 and bought back wonderful memories of a wonderful 6 weeks overseas.

Kathryn said...

My favorite city is Maastricht, Netherlands. It was my home away from home for 10 months and the city and its people are just charming.

FML Crochet said...

My favorite city that I have visited is Phoenix. I was impressed with the cleanliness and ease of travel there at the time. Thanks for the chance to win!

Christi Harrison said...

My favorite city is Monterrey, Mexico. That's probably not my real favorite but that's what comes to mind this morning before 7am. I studied there in high school and the nice parts are over the top nice and make you feel like royalty and then there are the poor parts that are really poor. That's unfortunate but makes you constantly aware of what you have and what you should be grateful for.

Varga Györgyi said...

My favourite city is Budapest in Hungary, Europe. The old city center is wonderful.

annemarie said...

My favorite would be Dublin, Ireland - sounds like such a neat place.

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

My favorite city... Hmmm. I would have to say Krakow, Poland. It is beautiful there. I would love to go back and visit again. My favorite US city would have to be Orlando, FL. I love Mickey Mouse!

Sonja said...

My favorite city is Chicago. It was the first "big" city I ever visited and I was (and still am) quite enamored with the huge buildings and fascinating museums and the beautiful Lakeshore Drive!

Cathy said...

My favorite city is: Rivendell, the elf's home, in Lord of the Rings. What a fantastically mythical place. The costumes and fabrics they used, oh to get my hands on some of that. That's where I would like to go and visit.
thanks
cathy

Tiffany Sherman said...

Portland Maine is my favorite city... it's my "home" city even though I don't live there:)

Would have to say that my favorite city is San Diego, CA. Love the town, being near the ocean, fair weather and site seeing.

Meredith said...

My favorite city is Dublin, Ireland. It was so unbelievably beautiful that I would love to move there someday, but probably won't have the courage!

Rebecca said...

This is a tough one because there are so many places I love. My favorite place I've lived is a toss up between Salzberg or Innsbruck, Austria; favorite city I have visited was probably Prague or Hanapepe, Kauai. A city I would love to visit is St. Petersburg. Okay so I gave you 5 cities instead of one, but considering all the beautiful places in the world, that's not very many. P.S.--You should save up and go to Paris, it is lovely.

WandaFish said...

My favourite city is Cambridge, England. It's such a historic and beautiful place with incredible university buildings, some great shops and a market square, oh and punting on the river. I spent many happy hours here as a child with my grandma, lovely memories!
Thanks for the giveaway - Sugar Pop rocks!

So many beautiful cities that I've been to. I like Oak Creek Canyon, AZ. Its beautiful there right outside of Sedona, red rocks and pine trees. I enjoyed your interview and the fabric is so nice.

Ellen said...

I was born in Portland Oregon but have lived and visited lots of other cities. I have to say my favorite is still Portland because it is home.

Wendy said...

Tough question, I love a lot of the cities I've been too. I'd have to say New York City as it's just brilliant and (I'm having two!) Warsaw, Poland as I lived there for 2 years and it is very special to me.

Karen said...

I was lucky enough to go to Hong Kong, it was my first experience of a high rise city. The mix of expensive restaurants and boutiques next to noodle bars and markets was great. The view from The Peak was fantastic! Thx for the great giveaway.

I'm not so sure I have any one particular city in mind for a "favourite city" especially since I have travelled so much, but I do have a few (in no particular order): Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, Antigua (Guatemala), Jodpur & Jaisalmer (India), Melbourne (Australia - I lived there for 2 years) and home: Vancouver (Canada).

Brita said...

I left my heart in San Francisco, many years ago! Anything you want to do, eat, buy, shop, walk, take in the beauty, drive to the mountains, fabulous city.

Jodi said...

Nantucket, MA! It's so much fun to bike around and shop, shop, shop, and it's an island!

Laura K said...

I really loved Yountville California. It is the perfectly picturesque small town. It doesn't hurt that it is home to 4 of Thomas Keller's restaurant either!

Cori Lewis said...

I LOVE Seattle. I have lived here all my life and it is so green. The rain is refreshing (most days) and the sky is so blue!

CherrySprinkle said...

My favorite city is Savannah, GA.. my husband and I went there for our anniversary a couple years ago and it was amazing! The people were warm, friendly, and inviting, the food was delicious, and the place its self was just old and historic and breathtaking!

thanks for the chance :)

VickiT said...

ooh such pretty fabric surely enough to brighten up this dreary winter that doesn't seem to want to go away. Great interview; thank you for that. I have to say that I LOVE the hexie pincushion Liz has on her blog.

Gosh, my favorite city ~ that's tough because I dream of going to Maine which really isn't a city obviously, but having not gone there yet, hard to pin down a favorite city. I LOVE the water and my favorite meal is lobster. In the midwest though we get tiny lobsters and I want a 'real' lobster that is huge and to see all the small fishing villages out in Maine with all the history. Of all cities I have been to, I'd say my favorite would be Chicago because there is always something to do or see.

SteffiD said...

I imagine my favorite city would be Los Angeles or somewhere of the like. Lots of sun, sand, and beaches! I love beautiful, warm weather and would be outside constantly.

Denise in PA said...

My favorite city would have to be London - I love all things British (even married a British guy!). I've only been to London (the airport doesn't count) once, but I am itching to get back there! What great fabric - thanks for the giveaway!

jennifer w. said...

Austin, Texas it's beautiful, friendly and it's home! Oh, by the way, love the interview and the fabrics. Have a great day all!

sntbosch said...

my favorite city is Paris France! It is so rich with history and art.

Diane N said...

Can't think of a "favorite," although I would like to visit Las Vegas and New York City. Don't think I would like living in either place though!

Jen said...

My favorite city is Seattle! It's gorgeous, clean, and cultural! Everything poor Sacramento is not! I love this fabric, BTW! nice meeting you Liz!

sebbie said...

I was trying to choose between Edinburgh and York, I've spent a lot of time in both. In the end the decider was that we have friends in Edinburgh.

Meg said...

My favorite city is London, England. I lived there for a semester in college, and it is glorious, so full of history, character and culture!

joycem said...

My favorite city is Chicago. I went to college in River Forest (right next to Oak Park) and it was very easy to get into(and out of)downtown Chicago. Lots of terrific museums. I have lots of good memories from my 4 years there (long long ago).

Pat V. said...

I'm really not much of a big city person, but I LOVED Paris (France, that is). It is the one city I've visited that I wish I could live in (for at least a month!) The atmosphere and the attractions are unparalleled. Sipping coffee at a sidewalk cafe, strolling through the Louvre, ambling on the Champs Elysees -- so cosmopolitan, and so romantic! Oh yeah, I'm ready to go back...

Megilon said...

I think I would have to say Dublin, Ireland. I've never been there but I think it would be a lot of fun to visit. I just think Ireland looks so beautiful.

Slowpoke said...

My favourite city is London, England. It is so easy to be in the bustling city and a few miles away and you are on country lanes with lovely scenery (so green everywhere) and cozy pubs along the
way. We went there on our honey moon, so very happy memories.
Fabrics are gorgeous. Thanks, Luba.

Cathy said...

My favorite city is Sydney, Australia - friendly people, gorgeous views, eclectic food. I can't wait to go back!

Nancy said...

NEW YORK CITY!! It's on my bucket list to visit some day. A play (musical would be best) and wave to everyone outside of the TODAY show..

And I love Sugar Pop. A friend made two quilts from it on retreat..and they were so pretty..

Raquel said...

Washington, DC because of the history.

Sugar Pop looks like a super fun fabric to quilt with -- I hope I win!!

Sandy said...

My favorite city is Rome, Italy. I have never been, but it is my dream to go one day. To me it seems like the most beautiful city in the world.

Amber said...

My favorite is actually Portland, OR too! I lived there almost 10 years ago. I love the city, but I also love how you have mountains and the ocean within reach too! And if it's a little too cold, you can take a short trip down to Cali :) Oh wait, and the public transportation! Awesome.

AMKreations said...

I'd love to visit Paris, France...haha...and I noticed you would too! =) I want to see the Eiffel Tower...and just go to Europe in general...I've never been off the soil of the good old USA. =)

Lovely new fabric designer! Great post. Thanks again!

Melissa said...

My favorite city is Charlotte, NC, which happens to be where I live. Great weather (well, the Summer could be a little cooler.. :)), friendly people, and it's big enough to have lots of fun stuff to do. Thank you!

Vicki said...

I think it would have to be Oxford, UK, especially on a sunny day - amazing architecture, independent shops and nice countryside. No fabric shops though :-(

Regina Engling said...

Love Portland, Oregon -- so green, so friendly and my BFF of 25 years lives there !

Yulia said...

London! Great style, lovely parks, British English, lots of textile exhibits & V&A museum!

Nancy D. said...

My favorite city is Fort Worth, TX because that's where I mostly grew up and found my husband and birthed my children :) and earn my living (which pays for my crazy fabric addiction). It's also where the West began! Thanks for the giveaway!

Heartsdesire said...

My favourite city is Vancouver, Canada, where I used to live. It is so beautiful with the snow-topped Lions (mountains] as a backdrop. There are plenty of places nearby for skiing and lots of outdoor activities such as racing around the seawall through Stanley Park. People seem quite happy there and it also hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Julia said...

Favorite city...so hard to choose...I think I would pick Singapore. That was my first international trip and so many amazing memories of amazing people and places.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

It would be San Antonio, Texas. They have my favorite Puffy Tacos.

Needled Mom said...

Great fabrics and an interesting interview!

My favorite city would have to be Chicago. I love that you can walk and walk in it, have fabulous foods, visit museums, shop and feel the breezes off of Lake Michigan.

Marcia W. said...

My favorite city is the little town that is our county seat. After living in some wonderful big cities (Miami, Ft Lauderdale, Chapel Hill, Scottsdale, SLC), I've come to appreciate the features of this small place. Quilters galore. People who call just to check on you if you missed church. Neighbors who bring fresh from the garden produce - just because. And, a community that celebrates "A Community of Character" year round. All kinds of events - we just had the Quilt and Craft Fair and "Beast Feast" is in April to benefit our education foundation. And, of course, my family is here. Thanks for the opportunity to brag about Trenton, Florida.

Donna S. said...

Love San Francisco! Thanks for the giveaway.

Sarah said...

My favorite city is Orlando, FL because that is where I first got to meet my little sister!

Quiltin' Sandy said...

Although I have never been to these cities, I would love to visit London and New York! :)

Jennifer said...

It's tough to narrow down! I really miss Istanbul so it is my current favorite city...I long to be there again!

Kara said...

Do I have to choose just one!? I LOVE Boise, my hometown. But I also love New York-it NEVER sleeps and Canal Street is a blast, and Seattle-talk about friendly people and good manners.

Grammasheri said...

My favorite city is Boise Idaho. We lived there for 8 1/2 years and it was the best! It is in a unique area, lots of trees, high sage brush desert, Boise River runs through it, nearby Lucky Peak reservoir, situated at the base of a ski area, fruit orchards nearby. I loved the area and Idaho in general.

Susanne said...

London! Would love to go there :)
Susanne

Erin said...

My favorite city in Burlington, Vermont. It's got great shops, restaurants, and entertainment but still very close to nature and the country. Perfect balance!

free indeed said...

Providence, RI. My sister took me to see the city's canal and the water fire nights they have. It sure is a clean upscale looking place. The social crowds during water fire are fun, the music etheral...just a nice time to be had by all.

THanks for the interview. It's always interesting to see how someone started in the industry .

Mary said...

My favorite city is San Diego. I've never been there, but I've heard the weather is fantastic year-round (no mid-west humidity), it has the ocean, and a great zoo. And Mickey Mouse!

Pontos da Flávia said...

I can't really tell, which is my favorite city, but I do have a favorite island: Mauritius! G R E A T ! ! ! ! Nice people, beautiful beaches and lovely food!!!! All in one, a trip worth!
