A Summer Giveaway!

*This giveaway is now closed! Thanks to everyone who entered! The winner has been contacted.*
I've been lucky enough to win a bunch of giveaways in the past month. I won $25 to Shabby Fabrics from Carolyn of ...just one more stitch (I bought FQs of Parisville, which I have been slightly lusting after for a few months, and a yard of blue polka dots for my stash), a BEAUTIFUL apron, from Esther at The Little Mouse, which is made out of vintage sheets:

(Here's my sister modeling - My fiance put it on last night and I was giggling, so taking a picture didn't come to mind at the time). I can't wait to wear it when I move out and start cooking with my fiance! Thanks Esther! Go over and visit her blog, she's great. She also sent a very cute, thoughtful card.

I also won a quilt kit from Quilt Story and Stitch Sanctuary (which I'm still eagerly awaiting and need to check on), 2 Lecien FQs from Katie at Swim, Bike, Quilt for spreading the word about 100 Quilts for Kids (I've already put these to good use - more soon!), a beautiful little pouch made by Beth from Love, Laugh, Quilt:

and THIS fat eighth set of the line I'm most craving from the fall lineup - from Julie of The Intrepid Thread -
I am still in awe and keep touching it, wondering if it's really mine ("myyyy precioussss..."). I have big plans for these babies, although I don't think I'll be able to start before I go back to school. I'll have another post about that... look at those little apples though!!

The Giveaway
I've been waiting a while to have a giveaway, and I really want to thank my followers and everyone who visits for the support and the comments the past few months!

On a college students' budget, I really don't have a lot of money to spare (although sometimes I splurge on fabric, but don't we all ;) ), so I'll be giving away three fat quarters from my stash - all new - 2 from Parisville, and one light blue Kona or Bella solid (I don't know exactly what shade it is, but it's the same light blue as used in the Parisville FQs - I got it from Pink Chalk Fabrics Monthly Solids Club and can't find the exact name. But you can put the solid and other FQs together!)

(I promise I'll press that top FQ before I send it off ;) )

What do you have to do?
1. Leave a comment about what you have planned for this coming weekend (I know it's only Tuesday, but we all think ahead!) No plans? Tell me what you'd like to do.
2. Be a follower :) and let me know in a second comment!
3. Blog about this giveaway or include it in a post, and come back here to post a third comment with the link.

This giveaway will end next Tuesday, July 19, at 11 pm EST. I'll pick a winner with the random number generator and I'll email them. PLEASE make sure you are not a no-reply blogger - if you are and wish to stay that way, leave your email address in the comment, or you can click on the button on my right sidebar, which will show you how to change your status from no-reply to reply.

That's it! Thanks again for being a fantastic online community to be apart of. And, I have several posts planned for the next two months and at least one tutorial! Woo!
