Give Away - Celebrate!

For some reason I always get Madonna's Holiday song stuck in my head when I see a Give Away, weird huh?


ANY HOW, As promised 60 followers = GIVE AWAY!!


This is what I found for you this time:
All these lovelies - OH, I just realized I got my body in there.. ... hmm, well obviously, the lovelies are the fabrics! All 100% cotton, more exclusive to Fabricland patterns featuring sewing motives. On a side note, I found these grey pants buried in my closet and I wore them today - total score! Still fit great. But I digress.

Which amount to this stack! Okay, I zoomed in, but still its pretty awesome!!
Some are Fat Quarters, some are Fat Eights and some are 6 + inches by the shelvage (heh, I am lazy and I got tired of measuring and cutting, I also got tired of doing my laundry hence the pants find in the closet!!). 
You may recognize these fabrics from the Quilters Carry All Bag I made and showed on this post here.
I think I will do the tutorial on how I made the bag sometime in February. 


Back to the important task at hand - How to enter the give away!!
You may have up to three entries again, please leave a comment for each or else it will not count.
For your three chances:
1.) Tell me what you are making right now or what crafty thing is turning your crank. (example- are you into knitting or something out of the norm for you??)
2.) Follow my blog and leave me a comment that you do (I will do the next give away at 120 followers!!).
3.) Post about my give away on your blog and comment with the link.
Easy Peasy!!
 I will draw a name on Friday, February 4th. Good Luck everyone!
-Carolyn

  15. Love that fabric above, and love the bag you made from it! I will watch for the tutorial! I'm fairly new to quilting, so I'm working on a lap quilt made from pre-cuts from a Moda Bakeshop pattern-- it's far from perfect, but it's a lot of fun!

  30. I am in the process of trying to come up with a design for my dad's quilt using animal panels. I have been collecting design ideas for awhile- now I just need to do something with them.

    Some great fun fabrics that you have collected with sewing motifs. I will look forward to your bag tutorial. You know I have not made a bag for a very long time- and certainly nothing cool or trendy.
    Congratulations on all the new followers.
    Happy weekend.
    Warmest regards,
    Anna

  52. I don't think the text box is big enough to list everything I am making right now, but I guess the most pressing are finishing my mother's Christmas quilt (yup, gave it to her and then took it back to put in some more stitches!), a D-9 quilt for my son's bed, a scrappy log cabin and a plaid Dresden Plate. Oh, and a Virginia Bound quilt a la Bonnie Hunter, who is coming to my quilt guild next month - YAY!
