My first give away!!

Ok – so I didn’t sign up for Sew Mama Sew’s give away day, but when I woke up this morning and started to read all of my usual crafty blogs, I was wracked with guilt and a desire to be a part of it all! So I’m having a give away too!!

See all this fabric in this photo?!? I think that MAYBE there’s enough there to make you a mini quilt! Beans, my cat, agrees.

Give away

Just leave me a comment with your favorite color combination and one lucky winner will get a mini quilt made by me in those colors. Good luck!

Quick edit: Clearly I’m new to this and forgot to mention how long it will last. Let’s say 12:00 PM (pacific time) on Friday the 5th!

A winner! arrow-right

    Your sweet! I love blue/green but I’m also loving red/pink. Sometimes I have a hard time making decisions. :o) I’m having a give away too and didn’t even know about the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day. Mine ends today…in case you want to enter.

    how generous you are and how greedy am i . my budget has said “nay” to all of these phenomenally cool new fabrics but i drool ceaselessly. my only complaint is that you’re featuring a fabric with dirty orange/rust in it .

    i’m a big lover of greens, blues, black and white and gray. but i think my stash is rather stale so go ahead and throw your bonanza at me and i promise i won’t duck .

    I think you should let Beans pick out his/her favorite fabrics – then make the quilt and have a give away!! I LOVE fabric and any color/print combo is good made into a quilt. What a good idea it is to put quilt blocks on the back too. I also like how you quilted a pattern on the back so the quilt can be folded down on the bed and show more quilting. I might have to try that on a quilt….
    Love all your quilts!!
