Sharing The Luck


I've been quite lucky in recent months and have won several giveaways and/or link up prizes and I thought I'd share the luck around a bit.  In March, I won this bundle of Dashwood September Blue from Sew Hot and I'd like to share it with one of you.

Prize from Sew Hot!


If you'd like to win a fat eighth bundle of this gorgeous fabric then you have two possible chances:


1.  Leave a comment below telling me what you'd make with the fabric.  (Be warned, I may copy you!)

2.  Leave a second (separate) comment if you live in the UK.


The giveaway is open to everyone, no matter where you live.  If you live in the UK then you may get some chocolate/sweeties in your parcel, if you live outside the UK then you probably won't as I think the postage cost is going to be surprisingly high.  (Sorry!)

The giveaway closes a fortnight today on 4th June at 7pm BST and I will close comments at that point.  The winner will be announced and notified some time after that.

If you have any doubt about whether you are a no-reply blogger then please leave your email address in your comment.  If I cannot easily track you down then I will ask Mr Random Number Generator to choose another winner - you have been warned!


Archie will be keeping as close an eye on your comments as he keeps on my gardening:

I had some company while I was digging the hole!
I'm watching.  Intently.
Good luck!!

UPDATE 4/6/15: GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED - WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED IN MY NEXT BLOG POST

  2. I saw you had won a give away recently on Quilt Infatuation - congrats!!! I'm not sure what I would make - I can't quite tell what the fabric looks like - I would either combine it with others for a big scrappy or by itself with white for a couch size - I live in the states

  7. Your garden is looking lovely. And sunny!!

    I think I'd make another Sew Together bag to squirrel away as a gift. Fat eighths work perfectly with that pattern. What a lovely prize!

  19. Thanks for giving this bundle away - I love its softness and would love to make a summery bag, something slouchy!
    My garden could do with a bit of work at the moment, Charly's ball is getting lost in the grass!

  20. I'm sorry I'd just be a pig and stash it ;)

  21. I'm in the UK and I think I would actually continue the giving by donating it to my Quilt Group as a raffle prize. But i would eat the chocs......

  22. I could definitely use some of your luck - thank you. I fancy making one of the squillions of pouches out there in computer land - possibly Sotak Handmade's pouch or noodlehead?

  23. I'm in the UK ..... and should be working!

  24. How generous Helen, I can't think of a specific make but I know my blue box could do with replenishing. Nice to see sun shining on your lovely garden.

    ReplyDelete
  25. And of course, still in the UK, lol.

  26. Hi Archie, wow, being in charge of the giveaway is a very important job. I already know you will do a wonderful job. What I would make with that beautiful bundle, hmm - maybe it is time for me to try my hand at a quilt, real quilting, not just what I have been making.

    Happy Weekend.

  27. Ive been meaning to make fabric floer pot covers following a tutorial on straight grain for a while; this fabric would be perfect for that.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would make a sew together bag. Archie always makes me smile.

  29. I love the blues in that bundle. I would add it to my "Floating Colors" quilt I am making from the "Millefiori Quilts" book by Willyne Hammerstein. sabrinavan@knology.net

  30. It would probably end up in a bag! That seems to be my favourite make just now, as they are quick to finish!

    ReplyDelete
  31. And I see the good luck is continuing!! You're not half Irish by any chance!! Jxo

    ReplyDelete
  32. How kind of you! I'm fancying a tumbler block, I think it would be great in those fabrics

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love this line, I'd make cushions for my sitting room...would match my blue sofa...thx for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love these fabrics, Dashwood is so great at producing pretty, modern fabrics. I think these would be beautiful paired with a plain white solid to make a simple patchwork throw quilt alternating white & patterned squares. Thanks for sharing your good fortune. Great to see Archie enjoying the sunshine outdoors!

  35. I have to idea what I would make with this lovely bundle. There are lots of quilts on my bucket list. Perhaps I'll put all the ideas out on slips of paper and see which one Arlo chooses.....They would probably look wonderful in my planned spiderweb.....who knows, I will just have to wait and see what inspiration strikes me if I'm the lucky winner of your wonderful generosity.

  36. I'm not going to lie. As much as I would like to say that I'd make a quilt out of them, they'd probably disappear into my stash for about ten years and then when the kids are a bit older I'll make a terribly old fashioned quilt :0)
