Valentine's Day Fabric Giveaway: How About Some Heather Ross?

So I was trying to think of a good reason to have a giveaway, to find something blog-related to celebrate. But since this is my 136th post (not 100 or 200), I have 186 Followers (not 100 or 200 or 1000 - hee, hee, I can dream right), and my one-year blog anniversary doesn't happen until March, I was almost stumped until I thought, hey why not just good old Valentine's Day? That's the perfect reason to share some pretty fabric.

So what am I giving away? How about 3 Heather Ross Mendocino FQs and a half yard of Heather Ross West Hill?
All it takes to win is a comment on this post. The winner will be chosen by random draw. BUT to make it a little more fun to read the comments, here's what I'd like you to come up with. You know how little kids' Valentine cards have cute little puns or plays-on-words on them, well how about thinking up a little line like that which could go on a Valentine for a quilter. For example "Valentine, you're sew sweet!" or "Valentine, can you quarter inch a little closer to me?" or one my husband suggested would be good for me, "Valentine, can we selvage our love?" It's all in fun, no judging here. I know I'll get a laugh out of this. I am never disappointed in the wonderful creativity of quilters!

Valentine,
I may be biased but I think you're sweet!

Can you tell I can't sleep? Thanks for the fun.

Lesly said...

I can't claim authorship of this one; I saw it on a tote bag on etsy. It said "Who you calling a fat quarter?" Although it's not very Valentine-y, is it? Oh well, it would have to be for Valentine Scrooges!
