Leave your name for a giveaway of fancies....

It was a busy summer weekend and there was only 4 of us tackling the bins but we were able to reduce my 8 bins to 6 bins.  Here they are cutting velvets.


It was ALL fancies....silks, satins, velvets, etc. and we ended up with bags and bags of it cut into 8-10" squares.  I will have large bags to give to new stitchers who join our group, packets of fancies for new classes and I'm going to have a give away of three bundles so leave your name and a comment and I will choose on Wednesday evening.

Afterwards we had a nice lunch in the gazebo and each cutter took home all the fabric she wanted.

Thank you for your generosity and give-away. My supply\ies of trims and fabrics are small, as I'm brand new to CQ. Thank you for being part of our group!

I have not done any crazy quilting for about 2 years as I have been so into embroidery. Perhaps a bag of fancy fabric is just what I need to inspire me again!

Paula said...

Oops! I forgot to leave my name Paula Guisinger. See how excited the thought of a bag of fancy fabric made me!

It's an amazing fabric stash. When I am done with Kathy Shaw's on line class, I bet I'll be looking for fabrics just like these! Please enter my name.

My husband always sees barns he wants when we are driving the back roads. I think I want YOURS!

CQ allows me to combine my love of embroidery & quilting. I'm always looking for different fabrics, threads & embellishments to help further develop my creativity in the CQ world & my passion for this needleart technique. To win this bundle would certainly inspire & help expand my artistic horizons. Thanks for the opportunity!
