Sunday Stash + Giveaway


This post should actually be titled Thankful Sunday...as I truly am thankful for so many things.



 I am thankful for bloggers like Maureen Cracknell who put together this beautiful bundle and for the Fat Quarter Shop who sponsor such generous giveaways.  
And I am very thankful for my luck because I did in fact win this beautiful bundle.




I have always been intrigued by the colors Maureen uses in a lot of her beautiful quilts as they are colors and prints I don't think I would put together.  So being able to play with her fabric bundle and see how the fabrics played together in real life has been eye opening.

Upon getting the package, I did have to open it up and stack the prints various ways.


I was really intrigued by the solids. A black, a citron green and a mint green.




And to top it off, these very graphic prints are in the mix too!

I truly cannot wait to play with all of these.  Being challenged by working outside my usual box is so exciting to me.  I know I will learn a lot working with Maureen fabrics.  I am already forming an idea for a quilt in my mind.  Hope to have some time soon to start playing.

But the best surprise last week was this little message that was in my in-box!
I'm truly thankful for all of you who continue to follow along with what I am up to.

Wow!
Quilting is more fun than Housework... just reached 1000 followers!







So I think it is time again to show my appreciation and share a little fabric love.  I have 8 more fat quarters from the Fig Tree &Co. Mirabelle collection that I want to share with one of my readers.




 

To enter, just leave me a comment letting me know how you follow.   One entry per follower with no extra hoops.  Easy Peasy! Just please make sure you’re not a no-reply blogger (or leave an email address in your comment if you’re not sure).
The giveaway is open until Wednesday June 25th, 11pm PST. 
International readers are always welcome too!  

 
Good luck everyone!  
And thanks so much for all the support!! 







***Sorry, this giveaway is now closed!  Best of luck to all that entered!***

I follow via Bloglovin'. I love that bundle that you won - I'm always so intrigued my Maureen's use of color, too! And I'd love to win this Mirabelle bundle; that's so generous of you. Fun fact: my fourth child was "Mirabelle" for at least six months in the womb! Even the baby shower cake had "Baby Mirabelle" on it. But two weeks before she was born, my husband and I just didn't feel right about the name; though lovely, it doesn't go with her siblings: Elyse, Henry, and Charlotte. We named her "Marian" instead, about 3 hours after she was born. :) Needless to say, I'd LOVE to win this bundle!
