I never thought that I'd be doing this....blogging...and having a giveaway.
I started doing this to beat the lonesomeness that comes with being a stay at home mom to a toddler transplanted to a "foreign" world. Never thought I would actually write something that anyone would ever read - it was just a nice outlet. Then I started commenting on a few blogs and b4 I knew it my blog had visitors - cool. It also helped me get my quilt-y fix, without spending more money at the shops!
Having recently won several blogland giveaways, the urge to give back hit me hard. Sew, to celebrate hitting 100 posts we are having a giveaway. "We" because when I placed my order with Shawna at 1 Choice for Quilting, she offered to double the fun. Isn't that sweet of her?! Please check out her store with great fabrics and shipping rates ($2.95 for orders up to $50 and free for orders over $50)!
Up for grabs to 2 lucky winners are 2 Prayer Flag charm packs by April Cornell and one yard of solid yellow or off white for background. Yes, each winner receives 2 charm packs and one yard of coordinating fabric.
Charm packs are fun - they are one of my impulse buys at the shops. You can get one or two without spending so much that you're dipping into the grocery money!
There are several charm pack patterns at Mode Bake Shop. Here a few small lap quilts that call for 2 charm packs and one yard of background fabric. One is Criss Cross Quilt.
Another is A Ritzy Cracker Quilt.
A third is Christmas Table Topper (i.e. a disappearing 9 patch). This one calls for more than one yard but if you make the sashing a bit smaller, one yard will work.
Don't forget the Schnibbles patterns and the new book from Me & My Sister Designs and all those other charm books out there. Obviously, these are only suggestions of what 2 lucky winners might do with their prizes.
