Fabric for my giveaway!

Today is my birthday! And to celebrate, I though I’d share the love by giving away some of my favorite fabric! I love hearing from all my blog readers, and I wanted to show my appreciation today!

I'm giving away these charm squares!

I’ve had so much fun working on my Flea Market Fancy quilt, and I wanted to give someone else a shot at playing with some of these gorgeous fabrics, so I raided my stash and came up with this selection of charm squares from my one of my favorite fabric designers, Denyse Schmidt!

This includes 2 charm squares of each print pictured here, including fabric from her lines of Flea Market Fancy, Katie Jump Rope, and Hope Valley. I made sure there were a range of colors so any sort of project or color scheme would be possible with these prints!

The giveaway will be open until this Thursday night, and I’ll announce the winner on Friday. To enter, leave me a comment and tell me your favorite or funniest or best birthday story! Or, if your birthdays have been uneventful, let me know who your fabric designer is and what fabric lines you have your eye on this summer!

first finished single girl ring

Finally, some pictures of my first finished single girl ring! 1 down, 15 more to go (I’m aiming for the queen sized quilt). Luckily, I don’t think it will be too bad– I’ve been systematically sewing together all my curved pieces for a while, so I really have more than just one ring done– just not fully assembled yet. I’m a little behind the quilt along, but I’m hoping to make up some ground this weekend.

I used a mix of fabric from modern meadow, hope valley, and a few Amy Butler prints. For the background, I’m using Essex cotton/linen blend in natural. I really like how the natural look of the linen works with the color palate I opted for. I can’t *wait* to get this quilt put together!

In other sewing news, I cut some fabrics for a new baby quilt I’m working on. I’m really liking these colors together lately– the baby quilt seems to match my single girl rings!

Squares for new baby quilt

Last but not least, I’m working to finish putting together my sample blocks for April’s do. Good Stitches quilting bee. I’m still deciding on a final color scheme, but I’m aiming for something Springy, and I’ll be back later this weekend with a post about the blocks.

I hope everyone is excited for the weekend! I know I am!
