Sunday Stash

After my fabric-buying frenzy at QuiltCon, I vowed not to buy any more fabric before Mid-Atlantic Mod at the end of April (and even then, I need to keep myself in check - I'm counting on you for restraint, future fellow shopper friends!). Giveaways don't count, though, right?


I was on the shuttle to the airport when I got a text from Michael Miller Fabrics saying I had won one of their fabric giveaways, and that I should pick up my prize at their booth. Say what?! Since I was already on my way out of TX, they very graciously shipped it to me. I was shocked to open up a fat quarter bundle (2 fat eighths of each color) of Cotton Couture Solids. I've used these before and they are the softest, especially when washed! I may be using some shortly, but I can't deny they are begging to be an all-solids quilt. Thank you, Michael Miller Fabrics!


I was also gifted a fat 1/6 pack from Oakshott Fabrics for allowing them to exhibit my table runner at QuiltCon. Just. Wow. Look at the shimmer on these - I believe they are from the New Autumn collection. Thank you so much, Oakshott! Maria was so helpful and kind. I can't wait to make something out of these for fall (can we say... fall mini quilt for the dining area?)

Finally, I've won many giveaways online in the past, but this one tops them all. Free Spirit Fabrics and Coats and Clark hosted a giveaway for 10 YARDS of Anna Maria Horner's new Folk Song fabrics. Renee tipped me off to it... I had seen it quickly before she mentioned it to me, but hadn't entered. This time, I said, why not? Well, you have to be in it to win it, because I did. Lol. It was hard to believe that there were ten yards waiting for me in a box after work last week! Squeals of glee. Thank you, Coats and Clark and Free Spirit!

Have you won any awesome giveaways lately? I can't wait to spread the love at Mid-Atlantic Mod and shower my Secret Sewist in lots of gifts!

  2. I looove Cotton Couture. My LQS has been stocking it, and you really can't beat the hand -- or the deep colors -- of that fabric line. I vote for an all-solid quilt!

  7. Congrats on all those wins! That's wonderful. And 10 yards!! That's a lot to win. Yay -- you deserve it!

    I have a lot a lot a lot of fabric. I'm on a fabric diet except for if something is incredible awesome (like something I've really wanted and it's a good price) or incredible useful at rock-bottom prices (like $2 or $3 a yard with coupons and sales). But free is always acceptable!!

    Enjoy your new fabrics!

  10. I won a FQS voucher about 6 months ago but haven't spent it yet! :( Our dollar is pretty crappy in comparison and since I'll have to add my own money to it to make up the shipping and to fill the envelope I've been trying to hold out and wait until something I really really want is available ...
