Sponsor Giveaway: PatBravo.com / Art Gallery Fabrics

If you have ever met Patricia Bravo of Art Gallery Fabrics (even if it was just through our interview last year), you know that she is an absolute dynamo. She not only designs several fabric collections a year, but masterminds the many patterns and kits her company produces. There needed to be a central place where all these facets of Bravo’s creative work could come together, so she recently launched PatBravo.com. There you can get inspiration for using Bravo’s fabric collections in home decor, quilts, clothing, handbags, and more. The Color Your World section juxtaposes beautiful photography with fabric designs, providing a glimpse into Bravo’s creative inspiration. Ready to sew? There are four free patterns for pillows and 17 for quilts, and a listing of where you can buy her fabrics and retail kits and patterns.

To celebrate the launch, Patbravo.com is giving away a truly spectacular array of prizes to seven True Up readers! Here’s what up for grabs:

Prize #1: A tote bag made with Filigree fabric + one 12 fat quarter bundle

Prizes #2, 3, & 4: one 12 half-yard bundle (each)

Prizes #5, 6, & 7: One assorted scrap bag + 1 toy box pattern (each)

To enter, go have a look around Patbravo.com, then come back here and tell us in the comments about the favorite project or projects you spotted. Comments will close and the winners will be chosen next Wednesday, August 5, 2010, around 3pm CDT. Good luck and happy clicking!

    I like the Milano bag kit. And although it’s not a project, I love her thread palette!

  2. Wen says:

    The Verona bag is my favorite. I can see myself using this bag all the time. Thanks for the chance to win!

  3. Lynn D says:

    I love the travel kit; the Chic throw and the clutches in her free patterns. This is a great giveaway, thanks for the chance to win.

  4. Aditi says:

    Flirty pillows. Very awesome.

  5. Deborah says:

    My fav was the quilt “Dream of a Garden”. Just beautiful!

  6. Margaret says:

    I really love the quilt patterns (my new obsession) and particularly love the cotton candy quilt. I love snowball quilts and this one reminds me of one. I know I will be downloading a lot of free patterns from this great site!!!

  7. KathyT says:

    I love her “Inspiration” sections! The Travel set is also really cute :)

  8. sarah says:

    WOWZAS. how did i not know about that website!?

    the ‘design your world’ options are amazing. i want my house to be all in ‘filigree’. beautiful!

  9. MoeWest says:

    What a beautiful website! The quilt patterns that caught my eye were Nouvelle Quilt and Alhambra’s Reflections. And I love the Verona Bag.

  10. Cynthia M. says:

    Grateful to learn about this designer…thank you True Up! Had a look around and found a purple smock from her clothing category. Just love it and the purposeful imperfection of her fabric design. What a gem!!!!

  11. Courtney says:

    So, I’m not sure why I’ve never heard of Miss Bravo until now, but I’m glad I have! That feather-like print is stunning. And in fact I do remember almost ordering the bead-like navy print from fabricworm, but not having the funds.
    My favorite projects are the knotted-corner pillows (seriously so cute! I can see a little toddler using the ties to drag a favorite pillow around the house) and the Organic Obsession Quilt. Love how from a distance it looks chaotic and well…organic, but at closer inspection it’s incredibly organized and linear. It keeps me looking for pattern over and over, which drives me crazy in the best of ways!

  12. craftytammie says:

    I agree, the organic obsessions quilt is fantastic! Thanks for the chance to win – any of those prizes would be wonderful! :)

  13. Jacqui says:

    What a lovely site, really enjoyed looking around! The colour your world page was gorgeous. I’ve used some of her Botanical fabrics in a quilt and like her use of colour and design, it’s very distinctive! I’ve grabbed the ‘Dream of a Garden’ and ‘Cotton Candy’ quilt patterns and the ‘Everyday Clutches’ patterns and I also really like the Grab ‘n Sew Kits, would be so nice to have all the bits ‘n bobs collected together for you when making a bag! Thanks for the chance to win one of the amazing prizes!

  14. Katie says:

    The everyday clutches are so cute!!

    I’ve never seen that website – thanks!

  15. Liz Tius says:

    The project that really caught my eye was the flirty pillows. How cute!!

  16. Sue Goodin says:

    I love the Grab and Sew kits. I think think the Milano is my favorite.

  17. mab says:

    I already have all of the quilt patterns bookmarked — can’t wait to make one of them! I like the Cotton Candy quilt pattern the most.

    Thanks for the chance to enter this fabulous giveaway!

  18. Audrie says:

    I really love the Sweet Dreams and Cotton Candy quilts! So pretty :)

  19. Bryanna says:

    I think I would love to make the Nouvelle quilt! It looks like a fantastic way to really showcase my favorite fabrics while still being whimsical with all the different sized rows! The fabrics are lovely! I would love to win some to create with!!

  20. Lyn says:

    I like the nouvelle quilt!
    the selection of fabrics is fantastic too :)

    I think I’d quite like to have a go at making the Milano Bag!

  23. Readerowl says:

    Love the Modern Affair collection coming out later this year, but the Posh Flowers free quilt pattern looks like one I’d have fun making. And it would be heaven to have one of those scrap bags.

  24. katrina says:

    I love the playmat kit! But also I think I’m going to try making the clutch, the square one looks like one I’ve always wanted to make!

  25. Lisabee says:

    I really like the Verona bag. I think it’s very simple yet elegant.

    I like the inspiration of making the fabric a pice of art.

  28. Holly says:

    The Posh Flowers quilt pattern looks great, must try that one =) Thanks for the chance to enter, that tote is too cute!

  29. Jenniffier says:

    Ok so playing around I found the Paris kit. I had no idea that these were around. It has made it to the list of wants :) I also really enjoyed looking at color your world.

  30. ratty says:
