Girly Giveaway

Simplify Sunday













Posh by Chez Moi for Moda + a bit of Alexander Henry's Aragon Swirl

In the name of simplifying, I'm going through my stash and trying to either (a) use it or (b) share it. So what have I discovered? Even though I bought nearly every piece with a specific project in mind, I have collected too much over the years to ever actually sew up, at least with the time I have. I have lovely sets of fabrics that coordinate beautifully--and I can't even remember what the project was. Sad.

I still like most of the fabric, but really, I'm more interested in a different style now. And frankly, what I need to spend time on is FINISHING those projects already started. My brother, for example, is about to graduate again, and I haven't quite finished the quilt I started the last time he graduated! And I need the space to sew in. Lucky for me, I find the swaps and quilt alongs really help me stick with a project, so that, at least, is progress.

Today I had planned to giveaway some charm packs, but then I found this set of scraps someone else had given me. This Posh line is lovely; I used some of it in this STUD mini. They go beautifully with Kona cotton in stone. The lucky winner of today's giveaway will receive enough scraps to make a doll quilt, or even enough for a baby blanket if you combine it with something else like a fab solid. There is nearly a 1/4 yard of the big piece you see. (BTW, I will continue to giveaway pinks--I really don't like them, I just seem to have them.)

To enter, just leave a comment sharing what you might make from this set--I don't want YOUR stash to become full of fabric just for the sake of fabric :)

Comments close Tuesday evening at 10 pm. The winner will be announced Wednesday 8 am. Good luck!

Gratitudes
  • Time with my family watching the Olympics
  • Another great band concert--our school has the best music program
  • Some quiet time to just putter around (my stash)

Beautiful fabrics!
I think I would combine them with a nice soft solid to make a baby quilt with embroidered floral designs.

I think those fabrics may be asking to be made into a little girls summer dress. They make me think of summer.

I'd love to make a ruffly girls skirt for the summer, they'd be fab!

Thanks for visiting our blog!

I'm not exactly sure what I would sew but I do know for whom I would sew a pretty pink something. I have a sweet little three week old niece whose parents are dressing her in her brother's blue hand-me-downs. These Posh scraps would compliment the pink linen I found last week. Pink linen is from a thrifted dress (new with tags) picked up for 52 cents.

I would love to combine these with linen. So pretty. Maybe a bag or journal cover too!

I have set a goal of donating ten quilts to Project Linus this year, so that's what I'd use the fabric for. Thanks for the chance at winning!

Pokey said...

It sure is pretty, that posh stuff! I have 4 fat quarters of some girly prints, these would fill out the set enough to do a throw with.
Thanks!

Love your doll quilt! Thought I'd enter your give away, too. They are great fabrics. I've been making lunch bags for my girls and their friends. I've also got some tote bags that need to be made. Apparently we don't have any more (or should I say we don't have any more "suitable" one), for some strange reason. lol
