Vintage Sheet Fat Quarter Pack Giveaway!

*** Edited- The giveaway is closed. We have a winner!  Thanks for playing & come visit me again soon! ***

It's Giveaway Day!  Since my buddy, Tammie is participating, I decided to participate, too!

Here's a little info about me:  I'm a member of two quilt guilds:  The Blue Valley Quilters Guild and the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild.  I am a former first grade and ESL teacher and I currently stay at home with my 3 and 4 year old sons.  I spend a lot of time thinking about quilting.  I'm determined to make lots of scrappy projects this year to work on using up a bunch of my scraps, which seem to multiply each day.  My favorite quilts are scrappy, anyways.

Today I'm offering up this fun fat quarter packet of 11 vintage sheets freshly laundered and chopped up by yours truly & am willing to ship internationally.  I recently closed my Etsy shop due to a lack of time, so I'm extra willing to share the wealth.

To win, please become a follower of my blog and tell me a little about yourself in my comments section.  Thanks for playing!  A random winner will be selected after the contest is over (Dec 16 at 5 pm PST).




Thanks for entering!

Beautiful fabrics and I love the colors. I am an Oregonian but born in Alaska. Still call Alaska home, but I'm tired of the long cold winters and short summers. I'm a fairly new quilter, but enjoy learning everything new. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

Trish said...

I have never made anything with vintage sheets. It looks like a lot of work to build a stash from scratch, so winning would sure help!

AnnieK said...

Hi Nikki! I'm a library worker by day, and quilter by night, so I'm always surrounded by my two favorite things-books and fabric. Thanks for joining in the giveaway fun, and for the chance to win your great, retro fabric!

I like to sew, too. I have tried quilting, but I'm not good at accuracy. My favorite fabric is vintage, so I'm drawn to your giveaway!

JustPam said...

I don't see any link to sign up for your blog. It is acting kind of weird. I belong to a mini quilt group (8) and we meet once a month. I have been quilting about 10 years part time as I work FT.

Hi Nikki, I just figured out how to follow you on Google Reader (I couldn't find a link on your blog to follow either).

Thanks!

Alissa said...

I live in the midwest and am a graduate student studying occupational therapy and recently married. Within the past few years I've been teaching myself how to sew and am just finishing up my first real quilt - pinwheels with a family tree AND free-motion quilting. It's been a lot of work but lots of fun, especially to see the finished product!

I like collecting vintage fabrics and creating special little quilts.

Hi, I am a lover of textiles and crafting. I live in Brooklyn, NY with my sweetheart and our very social but not too bright kitty. Even though I am only in my mid-30s I retired from my job as a human rights lawyer due to health problems and instead spend the days trying to make beautiful things to share with those around me.

Holly U said...

Hi there! I'm in the midwest also -- Ohio -- and mom to one great boy. I've sewn and stitched nearly all my life. Lately I've been reminded how much I love to embroider and am finding excuses to do more. :) Needle and thread-related creativity keep me sane.

Stephanie and Carlos said...

I would lot to use these on my first ever hexagon quilt. I call it my therapy quilt as I work on it when things are really stressful. This year has been truly relentless so i have a nice collection of summer oranges and yellows so far!!

Kiza said...

Ooo, these are very pretty fabrics! Thank you for offering them!

A bit about me. Um... I started sewing when I was little, but learned from my mom (who grew up sewing most of her own clothes) and my grandmother (who was, at the time, a professional seamstress) so was totally overwhelmed and intimidated, so I didn't really sew much until I was in my 20's. That's when I discovered theatre, and then promptly discovered that I was NOT cut out to be an actor. I kind of fell into costume design, and totally fell in love. When I was pregnant with a son, I left my full time theatre gig for freelance work, and turned my attention back to home sewing. About a year and a half ago, I took the plunge into quilting. I'm happy sewing pretty much anything, though different types of things (kid's jammies or a baby quilt or a really awesome jacket) fit the bill depending on mood.

And I'm wordy. Sorry. ;)

burrito said...

ylrbmk said...

I'm a teacher, so I find time to sew/quilt based on the weather (summer when it's too hot and winter when it's snowy and cold). Coincidentally, this works with my teaching schedule :)

Anne said...

The vintage sheets I find never look that pretty! Love those colors. Merry Christmas!

Addie said...

I am a recently laid off mom of two. I wish the newfound extra time could be spent sewing more, but alas, I must find a new source of income, since my husband is a stay at home dad.

Amy said...

A little about me. I'm newish to blogging and vintage sheet collecting. It's been fun so far though!

amy dame said...

oooh fun! i have a ton of vintage sheets, but my stash is sadly lacking in yellow, so this would be fabulous to win! plus, i promised myself that i'd do at least two vintage sheet quilts per year - given the size of my stash, that's barely going to make a dent in it - but this year i didn't manage it, so maybe some new prints would jumpstart me!

i couldn't figure out how to follow you either, so i added you to my bloglovin' list instead. you can see who follows you on their site - http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/3256350

thanks!

I am a new mom of 2 babies, Olivia (13 months) and Tomás (2 months). Because of my first pregnancy I decided to sew a few things for babies, and I found out that I just can't stop looking for new projects :)
Would be great to win those!
