A Splash of Spring Give-Away

Hello everyone, I am sorry I have been away for so long from my blog posting, I have been helping our very dear friends with a really difficult move.  I was far away from my computer everyday and too tired at night to sit and write anything you would want to spend your time reading.  I am finally back in the office so here is a new post for you to read which should actually make some sense, I hope.

As promised I am having a special give-away contest with an early spring theme.  The contest goes like this; I am looking for ideas to help me figure out what to create out of the Vintage Notions fabric I recently won on a blog give-away.  I will be giving away two gifts, one for those of you who would like to sew/craft with fabric and a second gift for those of you who do not.

This is the fabric I won, there are 18 fat quarters and one panel; I want to make as many different items as I can from them.  All ideas will be considered, I will choose two from the comments section to win a fabric stack or the cute spring journal, notepad, pen and nail file set.  You don’t have to sew to win something.

Prize #1 is this spring fat quart set of 8 mid tone fabrics.

Prize #2 is a cute spring bird set containing a journal, note pad, pen and a jewel studded nail file. 

I am really looking forward to your suggestions as to what to make with my new fabrics; they are sitting on my cutting table waiting to be turned into some fantastic creative projects.

Here are the rules:
One entry per person
You must specify which gift you would like to win
You must have a mailing address within the USA to win.  
Deadline for comment entries is midnight, west coast time, March 9, 2012.
Please leave your first name and the first initial of your last name with your comment so I can contact you when you win. (It will be posted on my blog so you can contact me with your shipping address.)  Sorry about all the rules, a necessary evil.

Thanks for hanging in there with me while I was away from my studio and office.  See you soon.  Laurette

Vintage Notions


  1. Jolene B: I think a medium to large purse should be made out of the collage like fabric (second picture of fabric) as the main pieces and the four or five different floral colored prints as the narrow sides, bottom and handles. Not sure if there's enough fabric for a large purse once it's all combined but I do know what I would do with my prized fat quarters.... bright multi layered ruffled throw pillow. I hope I win.

  2. The Kona Carryall makes a lovely Bag with about 6 fat quarters. You could applique some of you Vintage Ladies on the front and back of the bag. You could make some little zippy bags with what is left from them. Also a Journal takes 3 fat quarters and a badge holder (or passport holder takes 2. With the other 7 you could make a Texas Two-Step baby size quilt.
