I hope you all win, but in reality I only have one big give away.
It is …TA TA TA DA

  • 1/2 yard piece of silk organza in Christmas green
  • 1/2 yard piece of silk/cotton blend in Christmas fuchsia/red

  • AND a gorgeous fat quarter of silk/rayon velvet in green – this stuff is to dye for!
You can make some fabulous stuff with all these goodies, and I expect to see results from some lucky winner, so leave me your comments and GOOD LUCK .


I have had a blast putting this all together and reading your comments. I hope you will all come back often and continue to leave me your thoughts.


I love hearing what you have to say and I have learned a thing or two in the past week. Remember if your not having fun, don't do it.
ooops yesterday's winner was random number #20 -

What a beautiful array of colors! In 2010, I attended PIQF and saw your quilt style for the first time. I pulled out my cell phone, and took picures...the green background with the white lilies...a woodsey theme. Your work is beautiful, and I love your blog! Thanks for the inspiration, and your generosity.

One of my goals this year is to make a crazy quilt. I have been saving all kinds of things like Minky, corduroy, flannel-backed satin, scraps from Texture Magic projects, chenilles. I would love to add your collection to the mix. Thanks for the chance to win!

Dyeing to Quilt said...

I drool at your colors each day,
The fabric takes my breath away.
Hand dyes, did I mention
Are such an obsession
Taking my quilt time and money away.

sophie said...

I have the quote, "If you're not having fun, you're doing something wrong," engraved on my iPad ... I definitely agree that they words to live by ... and definitely apply to quilting :-)

Your giveaway has been fabulous--I envy all the winners.

ZenQuilter said...

Gorgeous ! It's a win just stumbling upon your website!

Mystica said...

Thank you for sharing such a gorgeous amount of fabric.

Lisa said...

Such beautiful pieces with many great possibilities! Over dyes have become my new favorite thing to do. When I go to work I look through the clearance fabrics for fabrics that are white or light and seem very ugly and then buy lots of yardage. I know I can use dye to make them beautiful for me! So much fun.

Jean said...

Thank you so much for the beautiful fabrics that I won yesterday!! They are soooo gorgeous!

QuilterLaura said...

OMG, does anyone have a paper bag? I think I'm hyperventilating!!!! Please pick me....waving my hand in the air!!!!!
