Giveaway Day and my Blogaversary, too!

SORRY, THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!


Welcome, everyone!

I don't know where the time went, but it has now been one year since I made my first quilt, and started this blog to share it at the Blogger's Quilt Festival. Wow, I have had a great time! Here we are, 17 quilts later and a stack of other sewing and knitting projects to boot. I have learned so much, made new friends, and acquired one heck of a stash ;) So, since this milestone happens to perfectly align with Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day, I thought I would share a little bit of fabric with you.

I picked up some sweet fat quarters of the lovely Dream On by Urban Chiks not long ago in some citrus yellows and oranges. I love how this line is reminiscent of vintage sheets I remember from my childhood. But, since I am plugging away on a quilt with authentic vintage sheet bits, I figured I would pass these replicas on to you.

So, this giveaway will include 6 fat quarters of Dream On, as seen here:



To enter:
1. Leave a comment- anything will do
2. Leave a second comment if you have been one of my followers over this past year, or if you are a new follower :-) Thank you!!
3. If you are also hosting a giveaway, leave an additional comment including the link to your goodies.

Deadline is midnight on Wednesday, May 25. I am happy to ship internationally!

Thanks for popping by, and enjoy Giveaway Day!

robin said...

I love Dream On - I'm just starting to collect vintage sheets. Found a great one the other day at MCC. :) I wish more of the sheets there were "prettier" and so many of the ones that are there feel low quality - I don't think they'd hold up well in a quilt. Anyway - thanks for the giveaway chance!

Someone needs to create a "BLOGIVERSARY" song. You know, like the birthday song, but singing Blogiverseary instead of birthday doesn't quite work (unless you're a tongue twister champ, or one of those paid advertisers who spoutoffwordsreallyreallyfastsonoonelistenstohowbadthemedicinesareforyoursystemandyoutakethemanyway)
