400 Followers Giveaway!

Good morning my Fabulous 400 Followers! 

Are you ready for another giveaway?  Of course you are!


Before I talk specifics about the giveaway, I want to share a great question Kristie asked me in my last post about my recent fabric bender.  Kristie wrote "So when you are buying just for stash enhancement, how much yardage do you usually buy?"

Because I consider myself a scrap quilter, I like to buy fat quarters.  I will sometimes buy ½ yards if I really love something or it’s the minimum purchase amount which I’ve encountered on some websites.  And I only buy yardage when I need it for a specific project. 

I find this method works well for me.  The reason I do it because:  
  1. I LOVE fabric and I’m addicted to color and I always want lots of it in my quilts.  2)
  2. It allows me to buy all the fabrics I love and stay within my limited budget.
How they get sorted and organized once I get home is a whole different story...for another time.


Back to the giveaway!

To celebrate reaching 400 followers I am giving away

3 Scrap Quilt Patterns and 27 Fat Eighths

That's over 3 yards of fabric from Judie Rothermel, Bonnie Blue Quilts, Joe Morton, and more! 
These are some of my all-time favorite purchases from Whittle's Fabric.



This giveaway is open to FOLLOWERS ONLY.
Whether you live in the US or abroad, it matters not.
All that matters is that you are a follower.

To be included in the giveaway, simply leave me a comment.

And remember...if you are a no reply blogger, please be sure to leave
a way for me to contact you in your comment.

I'll select a winner on Friday, September 14th.


Good luck and thank you!

Congratulations!! I've never seen the first numbers picked, but I would love a chance at those gorgeous fabrics! They are my favorites. I'm a happy follower! Have a great weekend!

Kristie said...

Thanks for answering my question. :) I haven't bought fabric for a while but when I do, I usually try to buy at least 1/2 yard unless I find yardage at a good price and then I try to buy at least 3 yards to use for borders and such. When I buy Civil War repros, I usually end up getting fat quarters so that I can have a better variety in my quilts.

Have a wonderful and Blessed day
Kristie

Congrats! I am one of those followers and Sept. 10th is my birthday and i love Jo and Judy and Bonnie Blue! Love reproduction and would love to make the tree farm quilt. Thank you for the opportunity to try and win my birthday present!

gccmom said...

Wow! What a lovely assortment of colors and fabrics. I usually buy fat quarters for the same reasons.

Strlady said...

Didn't know of this shop until you mentioned them recently in a post.
I wish their website was easier to use because they look to be a treasure trove of fabrics.
I follow your line on fabric amounts. I love FQs but if I'm collecting for several projects that use the same look, I'll pick up the 1/2 yd. I have been doing that with my repros since I'm collecting for a Bonnie Blue pattern and a Kim Diehl one. These look to be right in line for the Kim Diehl one.
I definitely follow you.
:)
In case you didn't know, haha.

Pip said...

Great giveaway, I am a follower, and I like to buy FQ's too although if I really love a fabric I will get yardage of it.

Deb said...

I absolutely love fabrics from Bonnie Blue, Judie Rothermel and Jo Morton. They're all so beautiful and I'd love to win them. I usually buy fat quarter bundles and 2-3 yard pieces that can be used for borders and backgrounds. If I fund a really good sale, I'll buy 5-6 yards for a backing.

Kristi said...

Happy 400th follower!! I have asked that some question on some other blogs I follow....wondering how much to buy since I'm fairly new to quilting. My main problem when I go to make something is I don't have enough background fabric for a pattern...do you buy background fabric for each quilt you make or do you deal with background fabric another way?

Kathinca said...

Congrats on reaching this milestone! Wishing you lots more postings and lots more followers. Thank you for the generous give away, i am a huge fan of Judie Rothermel's fabrics.

It has always been difficult to for me to decide how much fabric to buy, when I am buying for my stash. I buy 1/3 yard of many civil war fabrics and love scrap quilts.

Monica, after quilting for almost 30 years I just started collecting civil war fabrics. My favorite type of quilt has always been scrappy ones. I would so love to be included in your give away drawing!
