Fabric Give-Away




So I've finally come up with a plan!  And it's not very exciting, but you will still end up with fabric!  

On Monday, May 5th, I will randomly pick a person who has commented on this blog post.  Before you comment, please know that you will need to send me $12.00 for postage by PayPal.  

In your comment, please let me know:

If you prefer brown fabrics, blue fabrics, mustard fabrics or red fabrics, or a combination.   

And, please let me know if you like homespun.  

And, let me know what you plan to do with the fabric.  That's the part I'm excited about!

Also, please be a "follower" of my blog.  

On Monday, I will randomly draw a name from everyone who commented and will fill a flat rate priority box with as much fabric as I can fit in.  It will be several yards.  The fabric has been aired out on my clothesline on a "non-farm-y day" and folded neatly.  It has not been ironed. 

Winner will be announced Monday morning!

Thank you!

Oooooh fun! Count me in! I'm not picky...they all look like wonderful fabrics and I'm fine with a mix! And I LOVE homespun! Of course I will make quilts! ;o)

Birds...in brown...and red...and black...and mustard gold!!! It all looks so wonderful, I might just fold it and put it in a large wooden bowl and savor it! Or maybe make beautiful full Colonial lady skirts for my dolls!

How fun! I am a long time follower and would love a mix of colors. I would make quilts or bags or use it for cross stitch small's. Thanks for the chance.

Teresa S. said...

This is a great idea. I am already a follower. A mix would work great with my quilting. Thanks for your generosity!

Lelia said...

How exciting! If I had to choose just one, I'd say I like blue fabrics. Mustard, Brown, + Red are great fabric colors, too.

I've been making origami bags for friends and family. They are small for sewing supplies on the go. (or tatting supplies).

I also saw a quilt pattern at recent quilt show that I might try. It had alternating 9-patch blocks with quarter square triangle blocks. When they were assembled in the quilt, it was a wonderful pattern. Traditional, easy, and the colors made it pop! So, may attempt a small throw.

Homespun is awesome! Thank you for your generous giveaway, no issue with $12 from me.

Margaret said...

Oh oh oh! Well I thought I was a follower, but I am now. lol! Love the fabrics you've been airing out! I'd love a combination of colors. Colors are what ring my bell, so to speak. I love homespun too! I'm easy. lol! What would I make with them? Hmmm. Well they would go into a quilt for sure. What quilt depends on the fabric. :D Maybe if the fabric is too pretty to cut, I would use it for a piecing backing too. I love pieced backings! Thanks for the giveaway!

Carolyn said...

Oh my! What a fun giveaway! If I were to be lucky enough to win, I'd love a combination. I LOVE homespuns. They would go perfectly in a quilt for my cottage/primitive décor. I think I would make a wall hanging quilt.

Thank you for the chance! :)

{Oh, and I'm already a follower!)

Laurie in Iowa said...

I'm not picky. I love homespun. I'll make quilts and perhaps use a piece to finish a stitched needlebook.

gloriahanaway said...

Miss. Kathy you are so generous! I would be thrilled with anything and love homespun! I have just tried my hand at quilting (small Halloween mat) so I may try again or would use it to accent cross stitch. I thought I was a follower buy I am now! Thank you for being so generous!

Tallowberry Primitives and FolkArt said...

Hi, my name is Diane and I have a fabric addiction! LOL!! Therefore,I would be happy with any of the fabrics so a mixture of colors would be fine with me. I love homespuns too. I'm a primitive dollmaker so am always happy to have new fabrics. I also follow your blog. ~Diane

Charlene ♥ SC said...

WooHoo! I love mustards and reds, and homespuns, too. It will be used for finishing cross stitch, and a quilt one of these days! Thanks for the opportunity!

Carmen Sutton said...

What a give away Kathy! As far as colors they are all wonderful, so a mix would be great..I'm working on a patchwork quilt that could use some more patches and since its scrappy anything would work! It would also come in handy for finishing needlework smalls. Which reminds me I need to order some of your newest patterns! Good luck to all, Thanks for sharing.

cucki said...

Awww so sweet..

Big hugs xxx

cucki said...

And I am a happy follower too :)

The Meanie said...

I love fabric of all kinds, so homespun would be welcome in my stash. Colors? Bring them on! What would I make? I'm thinking summer clothing accents--a yoke here, pockets there...

Lisa V said...

Is this open to overseas friends? If so I would love to put my name down, I would love a selection of all colours as I only have a small fabric stash and this would enhance it beautifully. I would use them with my cross stitch finishes.
I am already a follower and thanks for your generosity.

Ann Proudley said...

I would love a combination of colors and I want to make a hexagon quilt with some toiles and prints featured.

Ruth said...

I would dearly love that mustardy colored piece with the bird nest. I would either make a pillow, a tote bag or a project bag. I love birds. Any fabric that would look nice with birds. Thanks for the opportunity!

Koala said...

If you wouldn't mind to send overseas, then :-) I love blue and brown, but any colours really would be great! I am learning patchwork and quilting and adore small quilts, so I think I'll make a couple of those :-) thank you, Kathy!!

Ruth said...

please delete one of my comments i didn't think it went in.

dq said...

Marlene said...

Hello. I am already a follower of your blog and count me in on the fabric give-away. YES, I will pay shipping.
I would like an assortment of colors. Homespun is fine and wonderful too! I would use it for small quilting projects or for finishing needlework projects.

Vera said...

Hi Kathy! Thanks for a fabulous give-away. I would love a mix of colors...and anything with birds on it - LOL. I would use some as backing for cross stitch smalls, some for bags, etc. I could even drive out to pick it up!!!

Delania said...

I hope you consider sending to the UK, will pay more of course!
Thank you;)

Rina said...

How tremendously generous of you, Kathy!! I'd be thrilled to send you $12 for shipping. If I am selected, I will make a quilt, pillow, bag, and/or combination, depending on the fabric! I like all the colors, by the way, though I've never worked with homespun. I am a fairly new sewist and quilter and I've been cross stitching for years. Love your designs! Thanks for the chance!

Terri said...

Count me in too, please. I'm not picky either, but if we have to choose, I choose red. I love homespun as well. I'll be making quilts.

Nan ~ Threadwork Primitives said...

Wow Kathy, you have some real beauties hanging on the line. I'd love to win any color or combinations. I'am cross stitcher and designer and I would use them in my finishing. What a treat it would be to have some from your collection. I am, of course, a long time follower and I think I own just about every one of your designs :)
Smiles, Nan

capecodgirl565 said...

Love what I can see of the fabrics. I am a huge fan of the mustards and browns, so please count me in. I use fabric for all kinds of things, but probably would use these for quilts for my grandkids.

Beth Twist said...

Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes! All the colors, homespun, repros, love them all. I like to use fabrics for backdrops, curtains, pillow covers, and always intend to turn them into quilts. Since I'm about to finish a quilt for a friend, perhaps I might start one for myself? Count me in!

Lonna said...

I love blues, browns, neutrals and definitely homespuns! I will make small quilts with some wool applique mixed in. What a sweet way to share from your abundance! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

sheravery said...

Hi Kathy,
If I were fortunate enough to be the winner of your most generous give-away, I would most probably use some of the fabric in my cross stitch finishing, some in my reproduction doll clothing and give a whirl at quilting. I am not too fussy when it comes to color, so any would be a treat.
I thank you for the opportunity to enter your give-away.

-Sherry-

CarolG said...

Oh what a wonderful giveaway! I especially love blues but would use any of the colors. I do do some quilting and crossstitch finishing so I would use it for that most probably. I have also made dolls clothing. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

robin said...

Please count me in! I love all colors, but am not particularly fond of homespun. Thanks sew much!!! :)

MartyG said...

Kathy, how generous. I like all colors. I would use the fabric to back pin pillows or to make project bags. Thanks for entering me. Stevemarty@msn.com

Pinkdilla said...

Pretty fabrics! I love all of the mustards, yellows, reds and if you have pinks and greens. A small amount of homespun would be ok for small kitchen sewing projects. Right now I'm working on Christmas and baby quilts as well as skirts for my daughter.

How wonderful. I love browns mustards and reds. Would work wonders in a pending tulip quilt. Thank you!

Bridget said...

Wow, I would love to win fabric. A mix of colors would be great! I would use it to finish pinkeeps and maybe a table top runner. Thanks, Bridget

Marsha said...

I'm just going to go for it and say blue, my favorite color. I've been collecting blue the last couple years and got some indigo prints thinking I would make a blue and white or blue and cream colored quilt.

NerdGirlNicole said...

Oh my...how completely generous of you!!! Homespun is not my favorite, but I am not picky...a combo would be fantastic! I have recently discovered finishing my cross stitches as blocks...or shelf sitters?...is that what they're called? :). I love this new (to me) way to finish!!!! Thanks for your kindness, even if I don't win :)

Patti said...

What a lovely giveaway! Oh how I would love to be entered! I love browns and blues - especially together and homespuns are wonderful too! The bird fabrics in your post are stunning!I love to make fabric covered sewing boxes and pin cushions - all sewn by hand as I don't own a sewing machine. :)
Blessings, Patti

Kathy L. said...

Not sure if its too late to get in on the next drawing but would love to be entered too. I love all the colors I could see. I would use the fabrics in finishing cross stitch projects and maybe some quilting.

Thank you
Kathy

How fun! I would love any and all colors. I would use the fabrics for cross stitch finishing and probably share with my other stitchy friends. I have no idea how to quilt but I want to come back in my next life as a quilter!

Kim said...

I love all the colors offered, and I would use the fabric to finish smalls, or make pin cushions and lately I have been making many! strawberry pin cushions in lots of different sizes with hand dyed wool tops!!! I have followed you for a very long time and love your needlework designs and your exquisite jewelry designs. ~Kim~

Debby said...

I love you site. I just started blogging today and came upon your blog from another blog. Exciting!!! I love your homespun fabric and the blues are gorgeous. I also love a little red and brown homespun. You are very talented and I have many of your x-stitch patterns. I love to take homspun and use it as backing for x-stitch pieces that i do not frame as well as use it with linen to make x-stitch smalls, like needle books or bags to hold my x-stitch projects.
