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!!!

  44. 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.
