And the Winner Is . . . ME!!!!

I won!  I won!

No.  Not the PowerBall jackpot, and not the Publisher's Clearinghouse $5,000.00 a Week for Life.

Something better.

FREE FABRIC!!  Beautiful fabric!  Silky soft premium cotton Art Gallery Fabrics designed by one of my very favorite fabric designers, Pat Bravo, and her creative cohort, Bari J.!

As The Count from Sesame Street might say.  TWELVE! Twelve fabulous fat quarters!! Ha.Ha.Ha.Ha.
(Okay -- so I'm a little giddy.)  But it was SUCH a treat coming home after a day at the tax office to find this package in my mail.  The fabrics are from the Lilly Belle collection designed by Bari J. and from Pat Bravo's beautiful boho assortment, Rock 'n Romance.

I am a faithful follower of  the Maureen Cracknell Handmade blog.  Seriously, it is on my daily MUST READ list.  Maureen is the queen of birthday crowns, and she recently began offering high quality wool felt in her Etsy shop.  Maureen is a creative powerhouse whose fabric and felt creations are a constant source of inspiration.

Maureen teamed up with Julie of The Intrepid Thread to sponsor this giveaway.  The Intrepid Thread is a fantastic online fabric store which offers an incredible selection of fabrics, reasonably priced, with exceptional customer service.  And Julie recently opened a brick-and-mortar fabric shop in San Jose, CA.

A huge THANK YOU to Maureen and Julie for this terrific giveaway.  I need to sign off now and pet my pretty new fabric.  I especially love the aqua and peach:

What to make?  What to make?  Bibs?  Zipper pouches?  E-reader covers?  The possibilities are endless!

  1. Yay! Can't wait to see what you make!

  2. WooHoo! Congratulations! That really is some gorgeous fabric. Maureen's blog is also on my daily must read list. I'm always inspired by her creativity.

  3. That's awesome! They are fantastic looking fabrics.

  4. How exciting! The fabrics are beautiful! And with 12 choices, you'll be having lots of fun!

  5. Congrats! The prints are beautiful. I love the mix of colors, too.

  6. I'm with you, I'd be as excited about a win like that too. Great fabric by the way.

    I won a giveaway last year at a blog. I won two sweaters for Bubba. He's one happy dog about it too because our winters are cold! He's wearing one of them now.

    I can't wait to see what you make with it! I vote for a zipper pouch.

  7. Congrats on your win!! What beautiful fabric, I bet your mind is swirling with all kinds of new ideas.
