Leap Year - the Giveaway!

Happy Leap Year, dear friends!  I've joined the blog hop at Such a Sew and Sew blog. What a fun way to celebrate an extra day to the year.  This is a one day only giveaway. It begins tonight and ends tomorrow evening at midnight (Feb. 29th) I'll use the random number generator to choose the winner on Thursday morning, March 1st. My giveaway is for one of my favorite patterns to use with a fabric line. 


Strawberry Pie by Silver Thimble Quilt Company is jelly roll friendly. I've made this quilt several times. I've actually purchased fat quarters/quarter yard cuts of a fabric line for the strips and a little over a yard for the focus blocks. It's my go-to pattern when I love a fabric line, but don't know what pattern to use. Leave a comment on this post. Tell me your favorite new or old fabric line. Happy Leap Day, friends! And Happy Birthday, Bev!

I love most of the Moda children ranges but my favourite fabric range at the moment is WOODLAND by Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches. It is so cute and whimsical.
Thanks for taking part in the bloghop.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Oh, what a delightful pattern and fun giveaway! I've only been quilting for four years...well, actually 3 because one of those years, I had some surgeries that kept me down...but I initially was completely taken with Thimbleberries. But now my favorite is Scarborough Fair fabric by Robyn Pandolph. But I also love anything by Me and My Sister and all of the Lakehouse lines, oh and I really really wish I could buy a huge fat quarter bundle of both Papillon by 3 Sisters and Gentle Flowers Glamorous Gray by Quilt Gate! hmmmmm, picking a favorite isn't very easy is it? LOL, I guess it depends on the mood I'm in when I hit the sewing room. Thanks so much Becky for a chance to win this wonderful pattern and HAPPY LEAP YEAR!!! Hugs....

strandkorbtraum said...

I'm really sorry, but I can't tell you a favourite in that area, I'm too new, and the shops here don't sort by lines or designers .. so they could be form anywhere. And I rarely buy fabric.

This would be so awesome for the Fig Tree and Sweetwater fabrics I adore and hate to cut.

This does look like a great pattern, much like 'The Yellow Brick Road'. This one could be my new favorite... as I like the blocks for a focus fabric or a little embroidery. Thanks for participating in the Leap Blog Hop and for the chance to win... (o:

Thank you for the chance to win the pattern. I enjoy buying fat quarter packs of fabric lines because you get a little of everything. I just finished piecing a quilt top using Midnight Garden - it may be officially Secret Garden. The blues are delicious and the fabric is so soft. I will miss it when it goes to live with my sister-in-law!
