There it is. Isn't it beautiful! This inaugural giveaway is related to my blog header. It is a photo of a wall hanging that I did for my in-laws 40th anniversary. This is a portion of the wall hanging showing the quilting.
You can see more photos of the wall hanging here.
I had seen an episode of Simply Quilts years ago featuring Rebecca Wat and her technique for folding fabric into flowers. She was promoting her book Fantastic Fabric Folding. I knew that I wanted to do that for my in-laws' anniversary. Well, I didn't get around to doing it for the 35th, but did make the 40th, using a flower to represent each year. I was too cheap/lazy to buy the book, so I got the directions for folding the flowers on the Simply Quilts archived page. This project may look hard, but as an intermediate quilter it was very easy. I was able to fold and tack the flower blocks while sitting and watching tv or waiting to pick the kids up in the carpool lane. It was a great take away project, and very addicting. After completing my wall hanging, this is what I have leftover for a lucky winner:
A collection of assorted batik and batik-like prints in wonderful jewel-tone colors.
Four pre-folded flowers ready to use in your project
Ten pre-cut 6" squares ready to fold into beautiful flowers
Eight assorted leftover pieces that can be cut into 6" squares and a couple of extra bits
Over 2/3 yard of green fabric and nine 2" strips in assorted batiks
If you are up for the fun of this project, then this giveaway is for you. I have enough leftover fabric to make 22 folded flowers and extra batiks and green to make something wonderful. You only have to supply the imagination.
To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment telling us what you would do with the fabric (maybe you don't want to fold flowers and that's okay), and/or who you would make it for. I'll keep it open until Thursday night when I pick a winner at random from the people that have left comments. Tell all your friends! Everyone loves free fabric!
