Happy Giveaway Day!!!

http://www.sewmamasew.com/giveaway-day/

Happy Giveaway Day! Eeeek! This is so exciting! Last Fall was the first time I discovered the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and let me tell you I was completely floored at the generosity of bloggers. It is absolutely amazing how this community comes together for things like this and I knew I had to be a part of it!

I discovered so many new blogs, so much inspiration, entered a ton of giveaways and just really enjoyed the experience. Now I am really glad to be here and play along in this Spring event.

Since I am a quilter I am giving away fabric! I am hoping to bring a smile to someone's day by enabling their favorite hobbies as well.

I have a full 10 piece FQ bundle of Tangier Ikat in the Sunset colorway. I love the patterns in these fabrics and I have had them for awhile but I seem to not work well with oranges. I am not sure why!


How to enter the giveaway:
1. leave a comment on this post letting me know what colors you work with most and what you have trouble working with
2. if you are a follower you get a second entry in the giveaway, just leave a second comment telling me you follow me, and how
3. this giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere 
4. if you are a no reply blogger (which I hope by now noone is) please leave your email otherwise if you win I will not be able to contact you and will need to pick a second winner. 


Since Giveaway "Day" is open for a week, this giveaway will remain open for 7 days and  I will announce the winner Monday morning, May 19th. The winner will be contacted via email by me to notify them. 

I hope you have fun going through the giveaways and discovering new blogs and finding inspiration... I know I will!  Enjoy! 

May the odds be ever in your favor!

  1. I've been working with pinks (all variations and shades) lately because there have been a lot of baby girls born to friends and family recently! I don't really have trouble working with any colors, because even if I'm not fond of the colors, I know somebody else will be and will enjoy whatever I've made.

  2. The colors I work with most are pinks and blues. I so have a problem with orange.

  9. I LOVE pinks, oranges, and yellows, all in one big mess. And sometimes red too, just for fun! I have a hard time with subtle color palettes. I like things loud! :)

  10. Lovely fabric...I tend to stay away from solids! As much as I have tried, fabric with with anything on it is much more fun! I too am a stay at home mom - but of three boys, ages 19, 17, and 13! :) Have a great day and thanks for the chance to win.

  13. I work with a lot of pink and grays. Maybe the fact that I have 2 little girls is why!

  19. I love bright colors right now! I have a hard time with small patterns. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I tend towards blues, greys, and greens and either solids or small prints. I have a hard time with florals, especially large floral prints, and purples. Come to think of it, I don't think I've actually ever made anything with purple in it...

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love working with purples. Oranges, not so great but I have also found...if I put them with something anyway.. I will end up liking the color! Case in point, I made a lap quilt with teal, orange and yellow..it was a set of fat quarters Igot on sale at the fabric store. So I thought, for the first time in my life, I will buy a set that is already a set (instead of making my own set) and make something with it. The quilt turned out really nice, I used a zigzag pattern made from HST's. I hardly even notice the orange over the other 2 colors! Moral of the story to me...try it. I might like it! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I hadn't given much thought to colors I work with. I tend to just pull whatever in my stash and use them but I love blues and greens. I don't like working with black. It's like a magnet that everything piece of fiber attaches to.

  93. I do great with citrus colors, mostly yellow and orange, with some blue so your eyes have a place to recover. :D Pink is harder for me, but I love how these pinks are paired with the orange. That's a combo I haven't explored yet.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  97. I always stock up on the same tone on tone "saturated" fabrics when I'm able to get Stateside to visit Joann Fabrics - hot pink, lime green, royal blue and red - because I use them so much. Pink is my favourite colour to play with (especially when paired with orange) :) Red is sometimes hard to work with because the different reds don't always play well together, and are frequently hard to match!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Because I have a little diva ... er... I mean... 4year old girl... I mostly get stuck working with pink and purple. I have the most trouble working with green. Either I can't match it, or that colour has too many subtle shades. I'm leaning towards the latter hehehe.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I love to work with aqua, orange and black, harder is browns or golds.

    ReplyDelete
