In Light of Recent Events- It's Contest Time!

Meaning, the fabric I just ordered this morning! I'm going to do a little give-a-way here on my blog. Fabric scraps. Like 'em? Well, you can get an entire Priority Mail Box stuffed full of them- for free! I really need to clean out my stash! I have scraps ranging from little cut triangles to pieces large enough to be called remnants, almost whole fat quarters.
Here's the deal; post a comment here on my blog and let me know a little bit about your favorite type of fabic. Where it comes from, who makes it, why you like it, etc. Then remeber to leave an email address where I can contact you. The give a way will, obviosuly, start today and go through next Saturday January 10th. I will randomly pick a winner on Sunday the 11th! Good luck!

I'd love a chance to win some fabric...I rarely meet a fabric I don't like! My favorite is cotton. Thanks for the chance in your giveaway!

Hi, I have been quilting for many years now... I volunteered with an organization as our state coordinator for Home of the Brave Quilts, we make reproduction US Sanitary Quilts for families of our fallen heroes.

I have started my own website in 2001 to further expand my passion for quilting. I often state, I am Paralegal by profession, but a quilter by passion! Most of the quilts I make, I usually give as gifts. I love traditional quilting patterns and quilt with cotton fabrics. Most of the fabric I purchase comes from on line shops or my LQS.

Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest, I could certainly put the fabric to good use!

I LOVE all of Mollie's handpainted rescued fabric. It's all unique and sews up beautifully. I've made several purses from it.

I have to be with Fabrics and quilts.. my bin overfloweth.. but you all should go visit Mollie's shop

Brittany said...

It's so great that you're giving these away; I hope whoever gets them uses them with love :)

I appreciate fabrics most that simply catch my eye and inspire me at the most random of times. Any fabric that begs me to sew it into a quilt, handbag, or dress goes on my list!

I made a New Year's resolution not to buy any fabric this year but I wouldn't be breaking it if I won some.
I love all types of fabric but I'm partial to cotton. My inner quilter makes me search through every remnant bin just in case there's something I can't live without. I love to piece the fabrics together like a collage.
I've been sewing for nine years now and I'm looking forward to helping my son design a new quilt for his bedroom this year.
I'd love to be the lucky recipient of your destashing.

Batiks are my total favorite. I love to do collages - and find different ways of using fabrics. I am planning over the next few years to start quilting - just need a few lessons and a good sewing machine.

Have a great day! :)

I love fabric! Polka dots and stripes, fun & funky colors and patterns. Great blog!

Mary said...

I like all cotton fabric and flannel if you have that. I just got into quilting last year and have made a few quilts, but any scraps or remnants are good to use in making other projects. I have used some Moda fabric and others, but I don't know all the names of them. Thanks for having the contest.

AWESOME! Who doesn't want free fabric!?! I use all organic cotton fabric in my shop (10oneworld on Etsy). I order for nearseanaturals online. In my home, I use all sorts of fabrics. If I find a cute fabric, it gets used. Thanks for the chance!!!

oh, fabric scraps! Must feed the addiction. :) My favorite is a red fabric with little white polka dots all over it that I get from Hobby Lobby. Can't remember who makes it. i'm a little bit addicted to it. Oh, and because it's covered in polka dots!

designlab443 said...

I also love fabric and I am quite bored with what I have right now, so some new fabric might light a fire in me. I make plushy animals, quilts, hats, skirts for my girls.

I love vintage style fabrics, cotton, fun fur and bright fun fabrics for the girls. Here is a link to my esty page: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5560397

Jingle said...

Oh, what a wonderful box that must be! My favorites are anything that makes me smile! I really like fun and bright prints like the Amy Butler fabrics, but I also really love the new Basic Grey fabrics that are out! The patters are just gorgeous!

I like the Barefoot Roses collection by Tanya Whelan. It is so beautiful and romantic looking. Thanks for the giveaway... My daughter (5) and I would love your scraps! I'm teaching her how to sew by hand and I've also just started sewing again myself.

Hands down, anything by Alexander Henry. I should buy stock in the company! Fabulous prints, anything I'm drawn to in a fabric store is bound to be theirs! :)

Happy fabric hunting!

I love home spun cotton (flannel). I quilted 2 blankets for my boys when they were small using the left over flannel pieces from making them pajamas and making shirts for my hubby.
Greens and Reds are my favorite colors to work with.
I have added your give away on my give away blog - please come enter mine too.

I'd love to win some fabric ... What fabric do I love most ... It's a hard question ...
I do like rather natural fabrics. I usually like small patterns better than large ones ... I don't have a favourite designer ... I like stripes more than dots ... I like all kinds of colours ... I love when different patterns and colours add up to a new whole ...
Sorry, it's very hard to describe - but when I see some I just know ;-)

What a wonderful giveaway! For sewing, I love plain old cotton - I've been partial to dots lately. I saw a quilt in a shop in town recently that used all dotted fabrics and fell in love!
