Quilt fabric De-Stash day 3

The giveaway is closed and the winner has been notified.

 I wonder if there is a psychologist out there that studies a 

quilter’s fabric buying tendencies. 
Or well maybe I don’t want to know the 
results of such a study.
I do know I have a mad, crazy addiction to background fabrics.
 I love scrappy quilts and the more backgrounds
 I can use the happier I am. 
Many years ago during one of our moves, 
I had all my fabrics 
in assorted black plastic bags. 
Once the move happened and I was ever so neatly 
arranging my fabrics on bookcases, I had no lights.
EGADS! All my light fabrics had been
 mysteriously taken to Goodwill, 
Even though the disappearing black plastic bag 
has tormented me for years I have 
amassed quite a collection of lights.
So keeping my promise to de-stash what will not fit, 
I will have several bundles of 
giveaways that will be backgrounds throughout 
the rest of the month.
Here’s the low down.
To celebrate National Sewing Month, 
I am going to have a Giveaway on my blog 
every WEEK DAY. 
It is going to be quick and simple. 
I will announce the winner and the next giveaway 
every weekday morning at 6:00 am central time.

Today’s giveaway is an assortment of
100%, first quality whites, cremes and tans. Some fat quarters
but mainly hunks of yardage.
None of them have been pre-washed.
They need a good home.
It will be a random drawing and  I will ship at the end of each week. 
I will consolidate shipments if you win more than once. 
I am only going to be able to ship in the contiguous 48 states 
and I must be able to contact you via e-mail.

AND the winner of Sept. 5th’s giveaway is…Blogger

Love brown. My living room is done in shades of brown
thanks to a wall papered in old book pages. I think it needs a brown
quilt to be completely happy. 🙂 Thanks for the chance!

    I love scrappy quilts and I happen to have a deficit when it comes to the lights! Thanks for the chance to win.

    I can't imagine losing an entire trash bag of fabrics. That would be a quilters biggest nightmare. Thank you for the opportunity to win your excess fabric. You are a very generous woman.

    I think I would still be bothered by a missing bag of fabric taken to Goodwill!

    I'm not sure I would want the results of a study on my fabric obsession, either…but I justify it because I am creating things…

    Funny that you buy backgrounds…I tend to buy the attention grabbing fabrics and have a hole where the backgrounds should be. This would fill that gap nicely! Great giveaways….thank you

    I feel your pain at "misplacing" a bag of lights in your move. This last move, we used only boxes. I was afraid of this happening with our stuff. Doing a swap in October with sewing friends. Would be fun to include your fabrics. Have a great weekend!

    I can't even begin to imagine losing a garbage bags full of fabric…ugh. But then again, it did give you an excuse to do some fabric shopping.

    Lots of great backgrounds…I especially like that last background with the baseball bats.

    I've only made a few quilts and they are scrappy quilts and I never have enough light backgrounds. I will give them a good home! Thanks for sharing.

    I can always use light backgrounds. My stash of these is rather small compared to the mediums and darks. That's probably because I use them all the time. Thank you for your generosity.
