Maywood Simpatico Give-Away

Since I totally missed my 1000th blog post, and to celebrate my stash report looking so good compared to prior years, it's time for a give-away! :)



I have this stack of Simpatico line from Maywood. I thought they were one-yard cuts, but I measured one and they're just short of a yard. So I'll call them 7/8 yard cuts. Close enough! There are 41 fabrics in this stack.

I've tried to use these several times on quilts and I couldn't get the mix I wanted. So hopefully the lucky winner will be able to do so. I think they would make up into dynamite charity quilts.

Let's keep this a short give-away. I'll do the drawing on Tuesday 6/14 when I get home from work. That might be around 7:00ish CA time.

No special gimmicks for this give-away. Just leave a comment, and if you aren't linked to a blog, be sure to leave your contact info so I can get in touch with you if you're the winner.

And remember that I have comment moderation turned on. So if you don't see your post immediately, hang in there. I'll be checking in several times a day next week to get those comments up. Just bear with me on that! Also, judging from the number of folks who leave comments on the give-aways, I won't be able to respond to each person. Just know that your name will be in the hat for the drawing!!

Good luck to everyone!!!!

OK - please put my name in for the drawing. I would use these for charity quilts - I think they would turn out quite pretty.

Sweet fabrics! Someone is going to be a very lucky winner.

Don't toss my name in the drawing, please!

Very pretty!!!! I think some of these prints would lend themselves well to Thimble Blossoms new Swoon pattern. Would make a super sweet baby quilt!

WoolenSails said...

I think they would make wonderful fabrics for charity quilts. I was thinking of doing lap quilts for residents of the nursing home, to start. I also got a pattern for walker bags, so florals would be nice for the ladies.
