Quilt Fabric Giveaway!

This giveaway all stems from a great find at the AQS show in Columbus this past weekend. The show was amazing, as always, and the vendors were fantastic. But after about six hours, I was completely exhausted. I considered lining up some folding chairs and taking a little nap, but I looked around and figured that if all these ladies could keep hoofing it, so could I. So I pressed on. 

And my endurance paid off. 

I rounded a corner I had already been around twice, and noticed what I hadn't before: a trunk full of Westminster fat quarters marked at . . . $1 each!!!!!

WHAT!??!?!

I dove into that trunk like I hadn't seen fabric in years. The vendor seemed slightly concerned 
at my almost hysterical excitement as I tore through the trunk.

"It's all Amy Butler!" I kept saying over and over. 

"Yes, I know dear," she responded cooly, still shaking her head at the crazy girl wildly 
accumulating fat quarters.

At one point, I think I actually jumped up and down a few times, clapping my hands like a four year old who's getting a lollipop. Or a trained seal who's getting fish.

Either way, I scored big on the fabric front, and I'd like to share my good fortune with one of 
you. Consider it a little thank you for taking the time to read my blog when there are so many out 
there to choose from.

Here's the giveaway deal:

One lucky person will receive.....


6 gorgeous Amy Butler fat quarters (some from "Love", some from "Midwest Modern")

Tell your friends, and thank you!




Happy stitching,

Kelly

I'd roll around naked in it for a little while, then use it to make a cute patchwork purse.

Doris said...

I did this same thing at the AQS show in Des Moines one year, I too, got very odd looks from the vednor...

I don't usually roll around naked in fabric, so I'd probably add it to my Amy Butler quilt coming up very soon on my to-do list...

Came by way of Andie the fabulous' blog!

Angie and Michelle said...

Those colors match perfectly to my living room, so I'd make some lovely Amy Butler couch pillows!

Rae said...

Oooh, I think I’d add those to my growing pile of fabrics for the Farmer’s Wife QAL. It’d go well with the Laura Gunn FQs I have.

Diane N said...

I'm a new follower! I would make a tote bag!

Catskill Quilter said...

What a generous giveaway! I am a new follower. If I won, that gorgeous red paisley would be allowed to STAR in a quilt that I designed around it.

Donna said...

I popped over here and ran headlong into a great giveaway...how lucky I'd feel if I won Amy Butler fabs. Lucky 'cause I've never quilted with her fabrics even tho I've crooned over them wherever they are.

Jacqueline said...

Oh the red! How glorious!! I would totally make myself something and be completely selfish with it. *sigh* Thanks for the giveaway!!

Kelly G said...

I would use it to make some doll clothes for my daughter!

Our Busy Little Bunch said...

Wow, what a find! I'd use it for some little projects ~ like pouches, totes, and purses.

Jo said...

I know just what I would use this fabric for! I have to make 2 quilts for a set of twins who will be born in the fall. Trying to do identical is just not my thing, don't even know for sure if I could actually pull that off. So they are going to be somewhat similar but scrappy and these fabrics would work great with the others I have pulled so far.

Peaceful Piecer said...

I'd add it to a few other Amy Butler fabrics I have and make a quilt. Thanks for a chance to win!

Pat V. said...

I would begin my Farmer's Wife quilt in a modern vein! (I love how the modern blocks are looking over at the FWQAL, but my stash is sadly lacking in modern fabrics!)

Anne Devlin said...

oh fun! I'd make another cute little cami top for my dd with at least two of them - maybe a market tote with the rest :-)

awyoung said...

I would probably make a bag...either a market bag or a patchwork tote. I'm a new follower. Thanks for the giveawy!

Donna said...

Blogger friend Andie sent me. Hard to top the naked comments. I think I'd do the disappearing 4-patch with these fat quarters and give it to one of my buddies in the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild.

Crystal said...

I'd make something for my new sewing room, maybe a machine cover and matching pincushions, and stuff.

leslieanne said...

Well I'm following now like the sheep that I am. I think I'd make some quilty placemats if I won. Or a doll quilt. Or maybe a quilty tote.

Ariel said...

Beautiful blog, Kelly! I actually have some time to sew now ;) so, these fq's would make some awesome patchwork placemats.

The Fam said...

I've recently really gotten into making bags for birthdays, I'd like to incorporate this into some new designs!

Follower now - yay! If I won this wonderful giveaway, I would share with my quilting friends and possibly get a tote or something out of it for myself ;)

Rebecca said...

Working on quilt for myself- I'm sure I could fit one or all into my mosh mash! Thank you!
