Sunday Funday Giveaway!

Today is giveaway day, yaaay!  Here's what I got for ya:

The goods!

Let's look at them a little closer:


First is this mix pile of fabrics.  These just aren't my style, and I would love to pass them on to someone that will love them.  I know it's kind of diverse--so if the winner doesn't want some of them, I won't send them.  The sizes range from WOF x 4" to a full yard cut, and from Joann's fabric to the Art Gallery, Robert Kaufman and Alexander Henry.


Next is a mini quilt or table runner I made to test out some threads for yesterday's quilt.  It measure 12" x 24", and the colors are just in time for fall!


And last, but not least, is this spool of Aurifil!

Aurifil 50wt #4648--Variegated yellow-white-orange-purple

I did use some of it on the mini quilt above, but it is 99% unused!  If you've been thinking of trying Aurifil, this is a fun one to start with!  Honestly yellow and orange with purple is sooo not my style.  I have a hard time with yellow or orange alone.  I am sure that one of you will make a much more loving home for it!  :-)


To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below telling me what most interests/excites you about this giveaway!  My loyal followers get a second entry--please comment a second time letting me know how you follow me!  **If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave your email address in your comment!**

The givaway will end at midnight on Tuesday, September 3rd and a winner will be announced on Wednesday, September 4th.

And go check out the other giveaways going on at 627Handworks!

  4. Popped over to visit you as a thank you for visiting my blog. What a great blog you have and you must be working hard!! Doing this and raising small kids is not easy. I was looking at the watch fabric in the shop just yesterday, and any fabric is fantastic as I use a lot to make quilts for Hope Homes International. Cheers Karen www.madewithmytwohands.blogspot.com

  32. I 'think' I love the fabrics most because I adore fabric, but then I have never tried Aurifil although I keep meaning to order some online. The Autumn table runner is gorgeous too and I can not resist anything handmade. Thank you for a sweet giveaway.

  58. What interests me the most about your giveaway is the Aurfil thread. I have wanted to try it since I returned to quilting a little over a year ago after a 25+ year absence, but retirement in Mexico makes it hard to get. I also covet the material and I don't have a table runner yet.

  65. OH gosh, what a fun giveaway! I love the thread. I haven't got much quilting thread yet so I'm still building my stash of threads. I was super excited to see the fabric with all the London items in it. I'm hoping to decide exactly what to make, but my son is obsessive about Doctor Who so I'm crossing my fingers if I won that this fabric may have the phone box on it. And since you said those colors aren't your favorite, you can feel free to send anything purple my way. :) I LOVE purple anything.

  77. Hi Renee,
    This is a very nice giveaway to offer choices. Your table runner is pretty and perfect for fall. haven't ever tried Aurifil, nowhere here to get it, and I love the pink daises and the pink, pink gold and pink brown fabrics. Actually all the fabrics are cute and I can't believe you wouldn't use them. lol..
    Anyway thanks for the chance,
    xo jan@sewandsowfarm
