Giveaway: New Waverly Modern Essentials Fabric (CLOSED)


This is a first! I'm hosting a giveaway. I've been reluctant for a number of reasons, but most importantly, I've wanted to be sure that brands I feature on Aesthetic Nest are those I genuinely care about and believe that my readers will too. When Waverly contacted me about this I just thought: "yes!"

It's a great coincidence too because I am about to pull out a bolt of Waverly fabric I bought at Joann about three years ago, when I was working on Scarlett's crib bedding, to start her "big girl" bedding! So I've been thinking fondly about Waverly. I didn't know they have a new line of home dec fabrics called Waverly Modern Essentials. It's available exclusively at Joann. It seems to combine all the tradition and quality of Waverly with a fresh modern vibe.

I love what I've seen of their new Fall collection: a bit graphic, a bit pop, some organic imagery thrown in there and even some ethnic motifs. A very fun, contemporary, combination. A little preppy, a little funky. Somehow I'm a sucker for the red, white and blue Americana mix. But I also love the Coral Citrus and Sterling Chartreuse (in the picture below)--I've always loved chartreuse and how often do you see it in fabric? I don't anyway--and with a touch of lilac!? And I really love that there are solids. I can't tell you how many times I've gone hunting, often unsuccessfully, to find a solid to coordinate with a print.


Waverly is offering a generous 10 yards of fabric from their new Modern Essentials line to one Aesthetic Nest reader! That's a $200 value. That's enough to start a room makeover or create a space for a new addition, or remodel an Airstream, or create a stash for some fun new apparel! I've often used home decorator fabric for clothing. Wouldn't a simple shift dress be cute in one of these prints?

You have the week to enter! Just leave me ONE comment and let me know which are your favorite prints (the "Tail Spin" mini blooms? the "Network" graphic, wrought iron motif?) or colorways in this new modern Essentials collection. I'll pick a random number and announce the winner on Monday, October 10th. Then the hard part: you'll have to decide how to compose your free ten yards. It's up to you as long as the minimum cut is 1 yard. So many possibilities!

I'm told the fabric collection is arriving in stores now. You can also take a look at the swatches:


And, for another chance to win, visit the Waverly Facebook page, and enter their giveaway! (You'll need to "Like" the page first.)

Good luck!

UPDATE: I realize I wasn't clear enough in my original post about the comments. Please just leave one comment here and if you'd like another chance at the giveaway you can enter via Waverly's Facebook page. I've deleted the duplicate, FB-oriented, comments below to keep it fair. One entry per person here. Thanks.

I would have to say the print that caught my eye was the Mint Plum. The colors are stunning plus purple and green are my favorite colors!

Domestic Diva said...

I like the summerscape spice combined with the glamour chocolate. Great for a fall skirt!

Winnie Spann said...

They are all amazing prints, bt I am drawn to Shine On and Farmer's Market in ANY color. Fabulous!

Nacho said...

Summerscape-graphite is the best. Blog is great by the way. Thanks for having such a great giveaway.

annemarie said...

Coral citrus is so pretty but then they all are pretty!

Doing Dea said...

My favourite by far is the network mint plum ! i have so many ideas i would use this pattern and colour scheme for! aprons for my little sisters, upholstering my old deskchair, a beautiful sun dress...i could go on :)would be so happy to win some fabric, it is far too expensive for me to buy fabric as often as i would like to

guardling said...

Shanna said...

These are great! Would love to win, thanks :)

MamaBurt said...

I love them all, but my top three are the Mint plum summerscape, Spring Ivory Wheels 'n motion and Farmer's Market Plum

Pam said...

I love them all especially Tail Spin in sterling chartreuse. I would love to win!! Thanks

Tammy said...

What a tough decision! I love the Wheels n Motion, though truthfully I like almost all the prints in all the colorways. If I win it will be a difficult task to pick my yardage!

Denise said...

Oh I love the citrus A Little Loopy design. My daughter would love having a dress made out of that and the Glamour Ballet.

Chris said...

So hard to decide .... I think I like the Spring Ivory collection the best since I would be using mainly to make some dresses for my daughter .... hopefully something as adorable as your apron or pillowcase dresses! Thanks to you & Waverly for the fun giveaway!

Kandice said...

I LOVE all of the colors but I think that my favorite is the Coral Citrus!

Anonymous said...

ooh...they are all pretty! I think i may love the sterling chartreuse the best. maybe. thenortons02(at)yahoo(dot)com

Seaweed and Raine said...

You make it a challenge for a girl to decide - don't you? :D
I think it would have to be the "wheels in Motion" in the Spring Ivory line (I love that entire colourway), or the same in Navy Americana. The spring is totally me. The Navy Americana is great for my boys. (and I secretly have a bit of a crush on the "little bit loopy" in Blue Jay. They all look so lovely!!!
Totally generous giveaway - thank you! :)

sherri said...

Navy Americana all the way!

thegirlwithacurl said...

I love Pom Pon Play - particularly in Harvest. It would make some fabulous curtains for our patio doors!

Denise :) said...

Oh my -- what a wonderful giveaway! Well, the 10th is my birthday, so there's one great reason you should pick me. And then I've got a little girl grandbaby coming soon and I'm fairly certain I could do some "WOW"tastic things in her nursery with a win!! Haha! Thanks for sharing with us! :)

Kate said...

My favorite is the wheels 'n motion in spring!

Lori said...

I gave in to months of begging and promised to start the big girl room project this weekend when big girl's dad is out of town and can't talk me out of it. Big girl is asking for gold and peach colors. She chose Pom-pon play/confetti as her favorite. Look how many comments! Thank you.

Natalie | Mrs. Janney | said...

Oh I love them all! I think my favorite is the Summerscape (Spice).

Marni Cochran said...

What a lovely new line!! I definitely like the Sterling Chartruese set best, the Tail Spin print is darling!

mamapriebe23 said...

I am a first time grandmother this week and would LOVE to redo a room in our home for her. I could see doing it in the Mint Plum. It is so beautiful. Thank you for having this fun giveaway.

Erin said...

I would have a hard time choosing but I love both the Sterling Chartreuse and the Blue Jay Sunshine. I would love to remake my older daughter's room into a "big girl" room and this fabric would be great.

Andy and Courtney said...

I love the gray and yellow color combo!

Emilee said...

They are all so beautiful, but i think i would have to go with the Farmers Market or Summerscape.
Great giveaway!

Valerie said...

Oh I love the americana line and the mint plum. I don't think that I could narrow it down to one favorite. I would love to make some new grocery bags out of the home dec line in these prints! vdesomber(at)yahoo(dot)com. (I hope I didn't enter twice. I hit preview for the first comment and it disappeared. I didn't see it come up yet, but if it does, I'm sorry.)

jean said...

I love summerscape graphite!!

Living Life in the Lowcountry said...

I love the FArmer's Market Citrus and the Summerscape Graphite. My daughter has wanted me to make some dresses for her and these would be perfect!

Unknown said...

Gorgeous! I love everything from the Blue Jay Sunshine line...can't pick just one!

Lizzy said...

I believe my favorite is the Luminary in the Indigo. I'm not quite sure what I would do with it yet, but I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem to come up with something.

Anonymous said...

I really like the navy Americana. I think a skirt and maybe a top would look good in that fabric. If I was the lucky one I would even try a skirt or a top pattern, have never done that before. I'm a bad kind a girl. And the mint plum would do great in a back pack pattern I have been eyeing for a little while (and purple being my favorit color) Thank for the giveaway

Jenny Rodriguez said...

Ohh.. Love them all, but "wheels in motion" is probably my fav!

Julie said...

I'm so torn! My favorite vacillates between Network-Farmer's Market-Shine On-Tail Spin. I think I'd figure out a way to use them all!

Danielle said...

I love all three of the summerscape fabrics. They are really beautiful. Thanks for the giveaway!

Lindsay said...

I torn between sterling chartuse (shine on) and mint plum (a little loopy) for my favorites. Either would be great additions to the big girl room I'm working on for my two year old. Thank you for the opportunity!

Ann said...

Love the Navy Americana line! But I really love all of the tail spin fabrics ~ so cute!

Sherry said...

I'd have to go with the sterling chartreuse. Wheels 'n motion is the cutest thing!

I love all of the fabrics but if I had to choose I think I would say that Shine On in Sterling is my favorite. I would love to use it to make some new throw pillows for my living room :)

Rose said...

My daughter just moved her 2 year old into her 8 year old room and bought a great loft system for them. Any of these prints would work will as a new color scheme for the girls. I have made them curtains and quilts in the past but would love to use these fabrics to add a splash of color to their new digs.

The Sterling Chartreuse is especially gorgeous, but I love the whole line. I usually think of Waverly as stuffier - this new collection is modern and versatile!

Marcy said...

I need to have- uh- all of them. I can't pick!

Sheila said...

Yeah! Would love some fabric as I just started my SAHM life AND am just about to buy a house - so I hope to sew sew sew!

Ever since I saw your beautiful birthday party with yellow and gray fabrics I have been wanting to decorate a room with these colors. They are all lovely! I like the sumerscape in graphite though. Thanks - and I'll add to the adoration - you are amazingly creative. I wish I had more time!

Little ol' Me said...

The shine on collection as a whole makes me swoon! That Aqua color is divine. My wedding colors are aqua and yellow so I know I could surely find a use for 10 yards!

Lili said...

wow i love this tailspin in spring it's such a cute retro pattern :)

Unknown said...

I'm in love! Since most of our furniture is thrifted or handed down it would be great to have some fabric to give it a personal touch!

Rusthawk said...

I like Shine On from the Americana collection.

candacek said...

These are fantastic! I just bought some Waverly fabric for an apron I am making! Since I am having a baby and haven't found out what it is yet, I am torn as to which collection I like the best! I lean toward the Coral Citrus for now!

tracylee said...

Oooo I like these! The shine on in sterling is very pretty, but so is the whole collection! Thanks for hosting such a generous giveaway!

Deanna said...

It is so hard to choose! I love them all! I love the color combination in the sterling chartreuse.

Becky said...

I've been looking for summerscapes in graphite since I first saw it (there was only a bit left at the joanns I went to) and I can't seem to find it on their website. All I find in the summerscapes series is on fabric.com in different fabric dye sets. It makes me sad.

Anneliese said...

@Becky: It's such a bummer when you can't find the fabric you want! Have you asked Joann about placing a special order? I had them do that for me with some home dec fabric about a year ago. If that doesn't work perhaps they could locate it at another Joann store semi-near you?
