I Spy a .... Giveaway!

Just for fun, I thought I'd have a giveaway!  I've had a great response to the I Spy projects I've been making lately, so I thought I'd share some novelty fabric scraps from my stash.  I'll fill an 8.5 by 11 inch envelope with lots fun fabric scraps perfect for I Spy projects -- big pieces, little pieces and anything in between.  I guarantee tons of variety ...

How fun! I've never made an eye spy quilt...but this would be fun to do! If I do win, I want to say that I will make it to donate to some worthy cause for children. I think an eye spy would be just right for something like that.

Deborah in Atlanta said...

It would be awesome if I won this. I've been wanting to join an I-Spy Swap, but don't have any fabrics to send for the swap, and don't want to have to go buy any. So even if this doesn't help with the swap, it would certainly help me make a charity quilt in the meantime. Thanks for the chance to win.

Domestic Artisan said...

This would be awesome to win, I've wanted to do an I-spy quilt forever, this would help so much! Thanks.

Kathleen C. said...

We have some quilting things in common: I like selvage quilts (I met Karen Griska one time, and she is a lovely person); I like free piecing and working without a pattern. Lib-Quilters Yahoo Group is the best group to join for liberated quiltmaking, without a pattern.

An envelope of novelty scraps would be great fun for me, because I rarely have bought novelties--even tho I like them. And I've just about stopped buying new fabric, so I'd put your pieces to good use. Thanks so much, and have a great quilty day.

Pat said...

Oh what fun! Hope I win!

Sue said...

Enjoying your blog. Inspired by your vibrant colours and playfulness. Just starting my sixth "I Spy Quilt" - after a 12 year gap in "Little Ones" in our family. Your scraps would be a fun addition! Thanks for the opportunity.
