Goodies and a Giveaway (mine)!

So I need to finish my show and share about the Quilting Extravaganza from yesterday's post.
The Cottage Quilt Shop from Taylorsville, NC had some fabric and machines set up for demos. 

They were also selling thread and these genius little bobbins with a magnet in them.  I got two as freebies! They sew so smooth and the thread is wonderful!
I also found these two sweet fat quarters, the one you can't see is a darling bunny repro print.
BTW the glass items I am displaying the fabric in I bought down the street from the Statesville Civic Center at the Westmoreland Antiques and Collectibles in the bargain basement for $.25-$1.00. They will be used to make pincushions for me and some other lucky people.
I love these kitschy fish!  And their all mine!

Five minutes after I walked into the vendor area they picked door prizes and I won a wonderful pattern of my choice from this lovely lady...Annie of Annie's Keepsakes.
I picked this pattern for cupcake pincushions and also bought some sheets of wool felt for future flower and felting projects. 
These lovely ladies from Bill's Sewing Machine CO were just a laugh a minute! 
I found a couple of red and black fabrics for a block swap block and a green print for a bag pattern I have been wanting to make.

Enough Saturday goodies, I will share more later in the week.  Now I have to share these goodies I won in some blog giveaways!

This rotary cutter from the Fat Quarter shop I won on a blog whose name I lost-ugh!  It's wonderful! Thanks!
Then last Friday I received an email from Jessica at Quiltyhabit saying I won her first ever giveaway of a Moda Origins charm pack!
Plus...scraps from her scrap bag!  And you know I love other people's scraps...Look Amy Butler's Soul Blossoms!
Thanks Jessica!

And now for my giveaway!  I have been 90's stash busting again, this time in the pinks and reds.  I found some yardage you may want to use for some Valentine's Day projects.
These pieces range from 1/3 to almost 7/8 yards.  Two pin dots, a heart, and an all over print.
This wonderful red Egyptian print has gold accents.  I may find some ribbon or a few other goodies to add to the mix.

To enter:
1.  Leave a comment below telling me your favorite new fabric line (I'm loving me some Soul Blossoms).
2.  Facebook it and leave a comment below.
3.  Blog about it and leave a comment below.

That's three chances to win.
Contest ends Monday, February 7 at 5pm when I have the random number generator pick a number.  Good luck!

Keep dreaming...Colleen

I hate to sound like a broken record, but Sherbet Pips is my current "boy I really want some of that!" fabric - followed closely by Central Park.

Jessica said...

Hi Colleen! I'm so glad you got my package and that you love the scraps! :) My favorite line right now besides Soul Blossoms and Sherbet Pips (can't wait to get some) is Central Park (also can't wait - I'm on a fabric diet right now!)

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I love all your goodies - the green you chose for the bag is just fantastic. I love the new Moda Butter Cup line - won a FQ bundle and had it 2 months before it hit the stores. Lineny muted soft greens, blues, apricot, and yellows. And it sews like butter. I just love the Egyptian print - how novel!

MoeWest said...

I like the Origins line that you won, and I like Sunkissed. Looks like you had fun shopping on Saturday. Thanks for the giveaway!

WoolenSails said...

I love Arnold's Attic fabrics, would make a beautiful primitive quilt for my bed.

Deborah in Atlanta said...

Now that I've seen it in person, I'm really liking "It's a Hoot!" I'm not usually a fabric line lover, I'm more of a fabric color lover. And the Egyptian print you have is lovely. Red is one of my favorite colors. And aqua. But that Egyptian print is to die for. Yummy. dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

robin said...

I like Kate Spain's Central Park. :)

Peach Rainbow said...

I love the Central Park, Sunkissed & Dilly Dally :)

Janet said...

I am liking Central Park, although the chance that I'll ever see any in person is pretty slim. I like Sherbet Pips too. But I love your reds and pinks too!

Debra said...

I am impatiently waiting for some Sherbert Pips. Fingers crossed I can find some!

Leah said...

Love Sunkissed...

Laurie in Maine said...

Anything "new" looks good at this point! I've also been 90's stash busting - looks like there's yummier stuff in yours :) Or just getting sick of my options and ready for a little supplemental stash shopping!

Lee said...

I really am loving Central Park! thanks for the lovely giveaway!

Mimi said...

I am torn between Dilly Dally and Central Park! Awesome giveaway and just in time for Valentines. Thanks!

Your fabrics are great for a valentine project(s)! My favorite fabric right now is Sunkissed. It reminds me of summer, and helps me get through the winter blues. Hmmm....magnetic bobbins. I've never tried them....I'll have to look into it :)

Currently, I like Lovely by Sandy Gervais for Moda. I really like the Egyptian panel you are including in your give-away. Do you know the manufacturer and the name?

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

I just ordered some Central Park for a swap I'm in and I think that might be my new favorite line...at least until I see another new to me line.

Patty said...

My favorite new fabric is Sherbet Pips, even tho I can't get any yet. I have seen projects made with it and love the fabric.

Diane H said...

I'm so boring - I'm really excited that I was just able to pick up Moda Bella Solid charm packs. Thanks so much for a chance.

Sherbet Pips keep calling my name. Thanks
