Friday Fun Day and a Giveaway

Hello From International Quilt Market in Pittsburgh!

We are having a great time. I hope you are following along on Facebook and instagram. We went to Sample Spree last night and it was crazy as always. Here is my hall... excues the picture it was taken about midnight...


So how would you like to win a little something from my Sample Spree bag? We got these adorable little bundles of Japanese fabric made by Kokka called IRome and they say "Colors of the Seasons" there are four bundles but we bought 5 so we could give one away. Here they are:


Aren't they sweet? So here is what you need to do to win. You need to tell me what pattern you have seen so far from market (instagram, facebook, twitter whatever) that you would like to make most. If you don't answer the question you can't win :)

Here is what I want to make:

Celestial by Alison Glass Design


I will keep this open until next Friday the 23rd.

  15. I like celestial too! The other one that I liked was on your Instagram. I didn't see a name on it. It's the one with the cirlcles that are kinda squared up and a green striped border. Ir was just below the orange and white quilt. Don't know if you can follow that. I talk in circles and even confuse myself!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I want to do every quilt in Amy smarts new book!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Dear Stella has this super cute fabric that's animals and you can make clothes to go on them (they're like paper dolls missing the body area). It's hard to describe but I LOVE IT AND WANT TO MAKE IT.

    *deep breath*

    Ok, I'm calm now. For now.
