Last Day to Enter for DS Quilts Picnic & Fairgrounds Giveaway

Don't forget that tonight at midnight is the deadline to enter my Week 3 Blogiversary Giveaway for the 7 fat quarters of yummy Denyse Schmidt DS Quilts fabric.  I think it is really beautiful.  BD#1 said that these fabrics are reproductions of flour sacks from the 1930s or 1940s (I forget which), but I believe it because last night I was petting my DS Quilts collection and one of the prints totally reminded me of the curtains my mom had on our kitchen windows when I was really little.  I suppose I'll never really know, but there is kind of a retro feel to these fabrics - in a modern sort of way.

And then she said that our Aussie friends are getting a different selection than these JoAnn's prints.  I looked at the photos in the Flickr group online, and there are a whole bunch of the fabrics that JoAnn's did not pick up, including the green leaves above in red and several more gold prints.  Looking at the Aussie selection (you can see it here) I really wish JAF had picked up the whole line.  Those prints really round out the collection.  Oh well, sometimes one must just be content with the yummy goodness that does come their way!

I'm trying to decide what my last Blogiversary Giveaway item will be...  Suggestions?

Another DS Quilts fat quarter selection of different fabrics?

A Hoopla charm pack and a couple of half yards?

A homemade item of your choice from items seen on this blog?  Hmmm... the last one is intriguing.  Maybe have to limit the selection.  How about choosing between

A sewing apron...

A sewing themed hoop...

A messenger bag...

Or maybe a market tote?

Maybe I would even make the item out of this DS fabric.

So leave your vote in a comment for one of these three blogiversary giveaways:
1) A different selection of Denyse Schmidt Picnic/Fairground fat quarters
2) A Hoopla charm pack and 2 half yards of Hoopla yardage
3) Choosing one of the above items.

Please help me decide!  But you only have one day to leave your comment, because I have to decide by morning.


  1. oooh, I'm voting for more of the DS print and we can't get it over here! How come the US gets some and Australia gets some but the UK gets nothing! :0(

  2. I'm the wrong person to ask because I'd be delighted to win anything, lol. I'm tempted to vote more DS prints as I'm in the UK, but it would be a very special prize to have something created by you :)

  3. I like the idea of more fabric, so our friends across the pond can have a chance of getting their hands on these lovelies!

  4. Wow, you're already being very generous with your DS score! Given how impossible it is to find any of the prints in the stores, I would vote for more DS fabric if you're willing to part with more! I agree with you about the Aussie's unfortunate that they broke up the "family" like that!

  5. You mean you want me to pick? I can't. Love all of the choices. Great ideas :)

  6. I love all the choices! I can't decide!

  7. I would say DS as I'm not able to get my hands on the whole line, YET! :) I should go get some more yardage of the 5 pieces I can, while I can. But you know, they are all wonderful my dear.

  8. eeps! that lovely messenger bag lives with me :D and I love it to bits!!!


I love comments! Please - make my day!
