Quilt Market Loot - and a Giveaway!
One of the really cool things about quilt market was the fun things people were giving away. My favorite, of course, was the mini charm squares. I was fortunate enough to snag a couple and boy are they cute!
But there were some other fun things, too. Some folks gave away patterns. This one is cute.
And Jillily's booth was so fun. They were giving away mini sorbet cones in some great summertime flavors. My favorite was raspberry. Yummy!
There was some other loot as well, but I haven't taken photos of it all. Suffice it to say that my luggage was heavier coming home than it was on the outbound trip.
And since the folks at QM were so generous, I thought I would share. If you caught this post, you know that I have a running love affair with French General (shhhhh... don't tell WH!) so you can tell that I really love this fabric. It's classic and fresh and olde worlde all at the same time. So I really hope you will like today's giveaway as much as I do. It includes a mini charm pack of French General's new line Panier des Fleurs, which comes with a project sheet for a sweet hexi pin cushion, and a copy of the 2010 Quilting Arts Gifts magazine. Even though the mag is last year's, there are some fun, simple gifts lurking within those pages. I had a browse through it and I think I'm going to try one or two of these ideas before it wings its way to someone else's home.
So what do you need to do to win? Just leave me a comment and let me know your favorite fabric from this spring's collections, or let me know what fabric you're most looking forward to for summer/fall. That's it. I'd love it if you'd FOLLOW my blog, but it's not required. ETA: Oh - and I forgot to mention, be sure I have a way to contact you if you win. Duh! And I think I forgot to mention that this giveaway ends THURSDAY, May 26 at midnight.
