Welcome to GIVEAWAY day!

So, up for grabs is a piece of Ikea number print [approximately 36" x 29"] and three Moda fat quarters - one  'Marbles', one 'Essential Dots' and one 'Kate Spain Terrain'.  These fours fabrics still have their selvages on which I love - hope you do too!
  

Also, on May 10th, I am having another giveaway to celebrate my stop on the "It's for the Birds" blog hop (and my birthday month) - so DO come back and see what I have made and enter my next giveaway!!

Just Sew Sue said...

Happy birthday month. I have just got some of the Ikea print via my parent's recent trip to Southampton for a cruise. Half of it is now outside in a bucket being dyed red. The reason it's outside, is to prevent someone knocking the bucket over.

I use small bits for foundation piecing. I've just finished a Basketweave star block which was a pleasing use of scraps.

I make lots of scrap quilts but I also use my scraps for making little things. I make a lot of wallets, pot holders, tissue cozies and pincushions. They usually only need small pieces. And anything too small goes into a bag that is donated to the Humane Society to stuff dog beds.
