First off, I would like to say, when I posted about me begging for fabric scraps, I had no idea what kind of response I'd get. Let me say, I was just completely overwhelmed by the generosity and all the lovely fabrics sent my way.
There are five winners of the gift cards. I put all the addresses and names in a box and shook them up, drew them out one by one. Congratulations to the winners and thank you so much my friends for all the lovely fabrics that went out my way.
1. Janet from Wisconsin
2. Carol from New Hampshire
3. Sadie from New York
4. Cathy from Maine
5. Julie from Texas
Please send me an email (email is on my side bar) and let me know if you'd like a JC Penny's gift card or a Walmart gift card. I will mail these out on Friday.
JC Penny's and Walmart are not associated with this giveaway, they don't even know I exists......in case you feel the need to know.
I will be posting about this quilt as I progress with putting it together. I'd like to say without anyone really knowing it, these fabrics are most special and many prints brought back memories for me of sometime during my life. There were all kinds of animals, dachshunds (which remind me of my 3 babies), butterflies, birds, bees, trees, dolls, and small toys on fabric. Someone sent fabric that had a saxophone on it, and that was most special, my grandfather played the Sax in a band for years, I saw that and thought of him.
Another swatch came in (green check with sunflowers)and when my daughter was in elementary school, I made t-shirts using that very fabric for her and some of her friends, I had thought how neat it would have been if I had saved some of that fabric....well, I got a swatch of that VERY fabric in a bundle.....I could not believe it.
There were florals that reminded me of my grandma's roses and irises she had in her garden. There were some that had a vegetable garden theme and well, you know how I love my garden in the summer months. There were adorable chickens and roosters that remind me of my aunt who loves chickens.
There were fabrics with trees, pine cones and cabins which reminded me of our little place in the mountains. There were lovely modern prints in the most amazing color combination that remind me of my daughter, she would have picked those very fabrics.
Then there were the vintage and reproduction prints that I am sure if you listened on that day, you could have heard me screaming.....so dear to my heart. Yes, you guys really have blessed me beyond measure....and I can not thank you enough.
