In one of my (increasingly common) "what was I thinking?!" moments, I found myself simultaneously hosting two giveaways last week. Well, I am now a firm believer in karma, because I also actually won two amazing giveaways last week, too!
First, I was lucky enough to win a free copy of the Candy Bar Road pattern by SuzGuz Designs, courtesy of Russ & Rhonda at the Backporch Quilters. I've been admiring this quilt pattern for a while now, ever since seeing it first on Dana's blog and, later, Amanda Jean's Christmas version of it. I am just thrilled to have won this pattern and, since it's jelly roll-friendly, I think it will be perfect to use my stash of Tula Pink's Flutterby fabrics that I (gulp, mistakenly) recently cut up into 2.5" strips.
Psst ... Russ & Rhonda are hosting a giveaway every week from now until Christmas, so be sure to check out their site for more of their awesome prizes.
Next, from 318 comments, I was one of the 3 lucky winners of Fabricworm's fabric giveaway!! Cynthia was giving away 1 yard of each of the prints from the upcoming line for her Birch Fabrics, 100% Organic fabric collection. This line is called Circa 50 and was designed by Monaluna.
This was one of those giveaways that I knew everyone would be trying to win, so I really didn't think I had a chance. But I was so taken with the prints -- those tree trunks! chairs ... and rocketships! and (gasp!) little foxes! I LOVE foxes!! -- that I just had to throw my name in the hat.
And, boy, did it pay off. I can't wait to start creating things with this wonderful fabric line.
Thanks again to Russ, Rhonda, and Cynthia for your continued generosity. Please take a moment to check out their sites if you haven't already -- tell them that Quilt Dad said "hi"! And thank you too, oh great karma gods in the sky!
