A fabric giveaway!

Today seemed like a good day for some cleaning, which ultimately led me to rearrange and organize my fabric stash. I’ve come to the conclusion that I really have more than I will ever be able to use, including a bunch of fabric that I really never see myself using. It may not be my taste, but maybe it’s yours?

So what to do but have a giveaway!

There are some larger pieces here – a few fat quarters and one or two that may even be larger than that, as well as a mix of smaller scraps and a few pre-cut squares. Most is quilting weight cotton but there are a couple pieces of home dec weight fabrics as well.

Just leave me a comment – about anything, really! – and I’ll pick a winner on Monday night.

Edit: Comments are now closed. I’ll pick a winner and will announce it tomorrow morning!

    Hmmm, a comment about anything? How about I am looking forward to New Year’s and using the “fresh start” idea to get myself organized, go through my own sewing stash, and rid my home of clutter! Of course, I kind of start out this way every year and end up back to my cluttered self, but at least I have once a year to make a good effort, right? :)

    I love getting bits and pieces of new fabrics, especially now that I am starting to quilt more.

    Fingers are crossed that I win!

    Thank you

    I love the modern style of the fabrics you’re giving away. Most of the quilt shops in my area lean more toward the Civil War repros, so it’s great to see the geometry and colors of your fabrics.

    Awesome! I love giveaways! Just finished taking down the tree and vowed not to leave any Christmas decorations out again this year (I had a resin Santa that stayed up on a shelf for all of 2008 because I forgot to pack him and was too lazy to take him down to the basement and open up the Christmas box yet again!!!). I love the tree trimming, but am always eager to get it all cleaned up ASAP after Christmas!

    Tricia says:

    Oh yeah…a giveaway! I thought that they might all be over because Christmas is gone…but no-you came through for my greedy, crafty soul!!!
    Plus, giving-up fabric earns you extra points in Heaven!
    Thanks!

    I almost took my Christmas tree down a week ago just because it was getting in the way of my mad gift making and sewing. I just needed to confess this to someone.

    I just got Liberated Quiltmaking for Christmas and have been lamenting that I do not have a very big stash, or a very big stash of scraps. These would be so great for some liberated quiltmaking! Thanks for offering them up to one of us lucky folks!

I started sewing only 3 months ago, but am completely hooked. I have one little girl and I am having a boy in only one more week! I have found that creating/sewing makes me so happy and it has added a lot of excitement into my life to be able to make things for my daughter, myself, and others. I LOVE the fabrics that you are giving away and would LOVE to create with them:)

    I love your blog-I never thought too much about making quilts until I saw the ones that you’ve made. They were so much more my style that I started thinking maybe I do want to make a few! Would love to be entered into the giveaway. Thanks for sharing!

    Debbie says:

    Comments are wonderful! You can tell so much from what people say in reponse to a blog entry. They give of themselves and are almost always grateful for the entry to get them started on their own sewing adventure. Many are just lurkers who are suddenly moved to make their voice known. The entry often asks of a certain comment but mostly it lends itself to having the commenter give of herself. Isn’t the blog world amazing?! I have truly enjoyed my year of getting to know so many talented and marvelous crafters/quilters who share their talents. Happy New Year and let’s hope that 2009 gives us all that we hope it will.
