The best giveaway for last

Several people have asked why I was giving these fabrics away 
instead of selling them.  Others have been amazed that I can part with
years worth of fabrics.
So let me explain, 
I have worked for Moda fabrics for over 16 years and another
12 years working and teaching quilting. 
I am obsessed about the moda designers and the fabrics they create.
 I love what special people they are.
I have a huge appetite and always think know I bite off more than 
I can chew, or in other words make.
I do get an employee discount so selling my scraps 
for profit, feels a bit like 
some sort of Wall Street insider trading. 
Since I am blessed to work for a company that produces 
thousands of fabrics a year, 
I just thought I would share my good fortune with you along with a 
big thank you 
for those of you with this final giveaway.
Did I have second thoughts about this one, heck yes!
French General’s classic red and whites takes my breath away.
 (is that wrong that fabric can do that?)
Do I really really want to make this? 
Yes, I have wanted to make it
 since it came out in June 2011. 
But I haven’t so time to wrap up the month long giveaway
what I consider to be the BEST giveaway.
Please leave a comment and I will announce the winner on Monday, Sept. 30th
No giveaway will be posted on Monday.

The winner of yesterday’s pinks is:
Bri Loftis

Could really use these for my in-progress scrap quilt! Great colors! Thanks for the opportunity!

    Ooh, did you hear me gasp? Can I win twice in your giveaway? Those are beautiful!

    And I'd be in BIG trouble if I had to give up on making things I just bought a mere 2 years ago … these are my retirement savings!

  9. Robin says:

    Our next quilt guild challenge is a red quilt. This would be perfect, especially since I can never make a decision on a pattern.

    This had been fun and I thank you so much for the opportunity to win your fabrics.
