Quilt Fabric Giveaway

 
The giveaway is closed and the winner has been notified.

  You know the old saying…..

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. – Marilyn Monroe

Well that is the truth,
 so let me tell you a story. 
I have desperately needed new floor in my sewing room. 
Let me just say high traffic area and 3 sets of puppies. 
I have been patiently waiting for the floor and 
 they called to tell me it was going to be installed on a 
Thursday and Friday. 
As luck would have it,
 this was the Thursday and Friday before I was to 
move child #5 to his college apartment. 
So not only was the apartment staging area happening
 in my living room but the
 entire sewing room had to be emptied by Wednesday night.
That is part 1 of the story. 
Part 2, the other day a friend of mine came to me and said, 
” This is going to be us.” 
She then showed me a picture of a quilter’s estate sale. 
Tables and tables full of fabric treasures. This quilter was a longtime quilt shop owner.
 She has acquired 3 yards of every fabric to be able to use when she retired.
 ( we have all said that, right?)
So the past week or so I have been trying to put my house back together.
 I vowed not to put anything back in my sewing room that there was not room for.
( I forgot to mention that the sewing room has also been the revolving bedroom for kids moving in and out and I had a stash of fabrics in another room)
So the another infamous saying is,
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. 
Prov. Something that one person considers worthless may be 
considered valuable by someone else.
I am going to be sharing my treasures with you. 
I don’t consider this worthless, actually
 I hope they will be priceless to the right person.
 My son kept me honest and didn’t let me sneak any
 more fabric into my sewing room. 
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 morning at 6:00 am central time.
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.
SO EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON.
And the reason is I don’t have any more room.
Today’s giveaway is an assortment of over
 50 layer cakes (10″ fabric squares)
Lots of reds in this collection of assorted layer cakes.
They are from assorted fabric groups.
None of them have been pre-washed.
They need a good home.
Leave a comment and let me know you can put these fabrics to good use. 
I will draw a name and post Day 2’s giveaway at 6:00 in the morning.

    I laughed out loud when I read about your revolving sewing room. I've been going through the same thing the last couple years with kids moving in and out. At the moment I have the room to myself, so I'm ready to sew! I love the bright colors in your photo. Thanks for the opportunity to win and I hope you enjoy your sewing room!

  5. Mary says:

    Red is my all-time life-time favorite color! These would have a very good home in my sewing room and I have a pretty good idea of what I would make out of them. Thanks for a chance to win!

  6. Colleen G says:

    My goodness, such a difficult decision to part with fabric. I have patterns galore for precuts and reds will always fit into my stash , oops meant to say that reds will go with what I have to make to make a scrappy quilt to cherish! Thanks for the chance.

  7. Katie says:

    It so happens that I am planning on sewing quilts for my grandkid's twin beds or in two cases double beds so all ideas, colors, fabrics will be included in my fun projects!! I'd be the perfect winner! Thanks for the chance!

  8. Marianne says:

    Oh wow! I have more patterns for layer cakes than I have layer cakes – and lots of family and friends to make quilts for!! I copuld certainly give these a good home (and make someone I care about very happy). Did I mention that I LOVE reds?

  9. Kathy J in Michigan says:

    Love your layer cakes! I would use them to make quilt tops to practice my quilting and donate them to our guild charity quilt project.

  10. Marcia P says:

    Oh do any of those layer cakes have my name on it? I can hear one calling for me. I can give a layer cake a wonderful home. I would make a lap quilt for the nice people that let my hubby hunt on their land.
