An Aurifil & Fabric GIVEAWAY : :

Since first my blogging, and then my sewing, three-year Anniversaries came and went sometime since the New Year without much thought, and because I'm still considering all the wonderful suggestions given under my post on Monday, I think it's the perfect day for a little spontaneous, midweek Giveaway!

Aurifil & Fabric Giveaway!

I stashed this lovely bundle of fabric from Bloomerie recently -- A few Type prints, Marmalade Stripes, several Lizzy House prints, and more! There are eighteen - 1/4 yd cuts in total, and I thought it would be a nice treat to chop these in half and share this bundle with one of you! 

Fabric Stash Giveaway!

Last week, the generous folks at Aurifil sent me these sampler packs of their wonderful threads to Giveaway to my readers, each containing five colorful spools! I'm thrilled to offer up five of these today, as well!!

  109. I learned to sew when I was a kid, and pulled out my mom's sewing machine for the odd project through high school. Then, 7 years ago my godmother gave me a quilt top she had gotten at an estate sale and I figured out how to add a back and quilt it and bind it and that piqued my interest. Over the next 4 years, I made a baby quilt and a queen sized quilt, and then I was hooked -- now I quilt whenever I can get time to myself!
