Fabric as Inspiration: Dinosaur Games Giveaway

If there’s a little one in your life who is big on dinosaurs, you’ll want to peek at Dinosaur Games in the March/April issue of Quiltmaker. It was inspired by the Clothworks fabric shown below, Dinos on Parade by Jill Webster. This photo is of only one fabric!

On the left side you can see the little color windows in the selvage. Isn’t this cool? You get four different prints across the fabric’s width.

Here’s the same fabric in a different colorway, shown from selvage to selvage.

Both are used as the “assorted prints” in the kit for this toddler/wall size measuring 50″ x 58″. The applique is all fusible, making this an easy-t0-complete project.

Notice the binding on this quilt. Isn’t that a great use of this fabric? You’ll find all this and much more in the March/April issue of Quiltmaker.

We’re wondering what new dinosaur names our readers could come up with. Send us your ideas by midnight on Feb. 9 and we’ll pick two winners to receive the four-print Dinos on Parade fabrics. The winners have been selected and notified. See their dino names in this post.

Let’s see…Raptadactyl. Imodiosaurus. Curkewlytops. You get the idea!
