CHANGE OF PLANS AND A GIVEAWAY!!

SHIPPING FOR THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW FREE....SO YOU GET THE FULL 25 DOLLARS IN FABRIC!!!!!


It seems that everyday I plan to get in my sewing room something comes up and I have to CHANGE MY PLANS,


dratts!!

Of course, Monday was Labor Day...did get some sewing done inbetween resting (a gal needs her rest)..... Tuesday I get a phone call and was asked to hem a long dress with a lining.......out of practice but okay, that is doable.

So....since Monday I have been working on these....I have 196 of them so far. This will be a comissioned quilt and she wanted blues and browns....


Here they are on my (clean) design floor..... I really think that taking a picture of a quilt before putting it together helps with block placement...I see now that this will not be how I will do it but hey, this is just for your benefit...


Yesterday I made these for my little gals at church to keep a journal of all of their projects and ideas for their Young Woman Values. Can you guess which ones were more popular?





While you are guessing.....I decided since Fabric.com was so generous to me that I would share some of the shopping fun with a giveaway.......




For one lucky person I am giving away a $25.00 shopping spree to Inchworm Fabrics...she is having an awesome sale. Shipping is part of that 25.00 unless you want to just buy fabric and pay for the shipping yourself.




So ask yourself...."DO YOU FEEL LUCKY"




JUST LEAVE A COMMENT HERE TELLING ME WHAT FABRIC OR FABRICS YOU WOULD BUY FROM HER STORE. YOU MUST ANSWER THIS QUESTION TO QUALIFY....SO GO AND VISIT HER STORE....AND THEN COME BACK TO ME.




Yaw come back now ya hear!!!

I feel lucky! I'd buy a couple Amelia charm packs and maybe some of that one Oxygen fabric that has the green circles on it. Emily's into green polka dots and she'd love something made with that! Thanks for the giveaway! :0)

I just LOVE the Batiks from Inchworm! I would probably buy all the purples and pinks!

Snoodles said...

Barb, I am guessing those girls loved the lady bugs! I visited Inchworm Fabrics, and I love the "oxygen" fabrics for a tote for me, and I'm ready to click on those panels she has reduced --- they'd be great for my crisis center blankies! Thanks for the chance to win!

West Michigan Quilter said...

She has so many lovely fabrics it's difficult to narrow it down to just one. I love the Sweet Divinity Main, the Kona Bay Pink Flowers, and the AA Stripe. PS: I love that you are on day 5 of not buying fabrics. LOL

I have a Fandango jelly roll that I want to use for a postage stamp quilt, so I would probably choose some Fandango yardage for backing and binding. The only question is which fabric? They are all so nice! Maybe I would say just surprise me and use what I get!

I have to guess the Lady bugs and butterflies.

I would get some Hike in the Woods leaves, if there is any left. Also Aster Manor Yellow Floral and Bees Yellow Daisy and Bees Pink Daisy and Lady Bug Yellow with Strips.

Lynn said...

So hard to choose! The Oriental Fat Quarter Bundle is calling my name. But I also like the Prayer Flag jelly roll and charm pack.

Mary said...

I love the Kyoto Patchwork Brown Could see some cute purses out of it. The Samoan Jelly roll would be a great quilt, and the Santa's could work in a table runner with a couple added fabrics. So many choices.

Deanna said...

So many choices! Probably the Oriental Fat Quarter bundle and a charm pack on the side.

Winona said...

Just got back from a trip to Inchworm Fabrics. (grin) I love the Arnold's Attic charm packs. A couple of those would make a wonderful little quilt. I am sure I could find something to go with them. Great giveaway.

Susan Entwistle said...

I'm stumped. I can't choose between whether the animal print or the dots were most popular. I'm thinking teens would go for the animal prints. :) Thanks for the generous giveaway. I'd most definitely pick up the Moda Prayer Flag precuts.

Peach Rainbow said...

I love the Amelia Charm Pack!
Thanks for the chance :D

Margarita said...

Hi Barb, Just have to go in this one, I love the "Bees Yellow daisy" and the others that go with it, but as I had to choose only one this is it

Your collection of Blues and browns looks great.

tich said...

If I won the $25 certificate (wouldn't that be nice!) I would be able to get a half jelly roll and an Amelia charm pack, and still have some leftover to get some Henemai black AND some purple batik - what a bargain!! Thanks for the giveaway!

pcflamingo said...

I would choose some of the Aster Manor yardage and the Double Take book. Or maybe some of the batiks. What a hard decision! Thanks for the chance to win.

Shari said...

Given the quantity of fabric I already possess, I would prefer a book or pattern - like Double Take. Fabric I would choose a pre-cut like the Amelia charm pack or the Samoan jelly roll.

QuiltSue said...

I love the look of the Prayer Flag jelly roll, the cream and white falling leaves fabric, the Arnolds Attic charm packs, the ... well, you get the idea I'm sure.
