Fabric Destash & Giveaway

Thanks everyone for your advice on destashing.  I decided to list a a few things on Etsy and do a giveaway.  If you are interested in the Etsy destash, you can find my shop here.

I had intended to do a giveaway when I reached 1000 Bloglovin followers, but I am currently at 963 followers so this will have to be the I'm-almost-to-1000-Bloglovin-followers giveaway.  If you would like to help me reach 1000 followers, you can find me here.

And now for the giveaway.  When I first started quilting I tended to buy larger cuts of fabric (now I usually buy 1/4 yard cuts, occasionally 1/2 yard if I really like something) and so I have quite a bit of fabric leftover from past projects.  There are some larger cuts here (four or five of them are a full yard) and some smaller scraps (including scraps from most of the Nordika prints).  But designers range from Amy Butler to Denyse Schmidt to Joel Dewberry and several Moda designers.
If this doesn't end up filling the flat medium rate box I will add more from my stash until it is stuffed full.

I like all of these fabrics but I just don't know if I will ever use them, so I would like them to go to someone who can use them.  If you would like to enter the giveaway, just leave me a comment.  No hoops to jump through, I just want the fabric to go to someone who needs it.  The giveaway will go through Thursday evening and I will announce a winner on Friday.

Because of the high price of shipping I am going to limit this to US entries only.  I'm sorry I know that's lame, but shipping is expensive and fabric is heavy!

p.s. The first FIVE people to comment to this post were all no-reply bloggers which means that I cannot contact them if they win.  If you aren't sure if you are a no-reply blogger, please check here or leave your email address in your comment.

The giveaway is now closed.
