Giveaway #1 - Fantastic Fabric

Let me take you on a brief tour of my quilting before I announce the first giveaway - Fantastic Fabric.

The first completed quilt I made in the spring of 2005 went to this little girl. It was a Dorthy Young mystery quilt. I had lots of fun making it and I know the little girl still uses it today.
The first completed top I made was for the Hotel Man. It has Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots in it. It's called All Stars. It resides on our bed as an extra covering on the coldest winter nights.
This quilt I made just for me. I'm not a huge fan of florals and pastels, but these fabrics spoke to me. It's my Wicked Girly quilt.
This is the back of Wicked Girly! Needless to say this quilt is not on the bed when the Hotel Man is home. It is strictly for me.

Now on to Giveaway #1 - Fantastic Fabric

The package starts with these two charm square packs and two patterns.
Then I will pull a few more pieces from my fabric closet.
And then, just for fun, a few other goodies.

To enter leave a comment on this post. Tell me what you would make with the charm squares and other fabric goodies you would win. Also tell me how you follow me - with Bloglines, Google Reader, on your side bar, etc.

The drawing is open until March 31, 2010. I will draw the winner on April 1, 2010. You may enter each drawing, but I will only accept one entry per person per drawing.

PS - How do you like the new look? I followed Paula's lead and played with Blogger in Draft. I like the availability to play around. I'm also adding a page of recent blog posts for each topic of the Giveaway. I have plans to expand my blog and this is the start of it. I hope you like it and I hope you keep reading even though I may not write about quilting all the time.

Happy Sewing!
Sweet P

oohhh... I'm first!! I love those charm packs. I would make a couple more baby quilts like the one I posted tonight. I could then have a stash of them for when the babies come...
Love the new pink look to the blog..

I follow on google-reader.

Looks like you have a 'history' of great quilts. Love the new blog look. I think I'd give the Schnibbles pattern a try with the charm pack on the right, not sure about the Summer in the City.

Elizabeth said...

This is a great idea!!! I love it! I would incorporate the fabric into a "Welcome Baby" package that I put together for all of the ladies I know when they have a new addition. The packages come with a quilt, either a handmade stuffed animal or homemade soft block toy, and a coordinating homemade diaper bag. The pinky-salmon is a great spring color for your page.

You have great ideas and inspire me alot. Thank You!

GREAT give-away! Love your quilts. Especially your girlie quilt!

I would make a quilt and let it be the first one that I quilt. Have made quilts but have only tied them. Would love to do a machine and hand quilted ones.

I think I would make bags from the charm squares. I follow you both as a new follower but have had you on my google reader for a long time.

Nice Paula! I like the new look.

Nice prizes too! I'd love to win the charm packs...love Urban Chiks and Basic Grey! I would use them either in bags - you know I love making and using bags- or to make table runners or charity quilts. I can always find places to donate quilts!

I follow you on my blogger dashboard, so I guess that's in google reader.

Stay dry!

good morning Sweet P - what a nice giveaway!
I've been wanting to make a new bag for me and a diaper bag for DD so that is I will use them, if I win.

I would make a new baby quilt. I love the spring colors in the charm pack. Also I have been wanting to do the spin city pattern. I found it interesting that you're able to keep track of your creative hours each month. I'm so sporadic I wouldn't be able to keep track. I use Google reader...love your blog. Great incentive for me!! Thanks!

What a wonderful giveaway! Those charm packs look lovely. And I LOVE Schnibbles, but don't have any patterns yet, so I would definitely make that with the packs. I use Bloglines as my feed reader. Thanks!!

I'd add these to some I have and make a couple of new bags.

I'm so old school - I just added you to my favorites and visit every once in a while.

EVA SB said...

I love the Spin City Pattern so I would use the fabric for that pattern. The fabric would be lovely for a baby quilt

I follow with GFC and Google reader

Quilter Kathy said...

Of course I would make mini quilts...my favorite thing to make!
And I would make up that Spin City jiffy quick! I've made a similar design a few times, but it's one of my all time favorite quilt blocks!

pixie13 said...

First, I love the red quilt. Gorgeous.
I'm not really sure what I'd make Right now I have a green & cream Irish Chain I'm working on, & it's been slow going. It's also just about time to clean out the "scraps" with another Crazy Quilt Blocks Quilt. Those charm packs look as if they'd make a very nice baby quilt for a little girl.
