My first give away!!

Ok – so I didn’t sign up for Sew Mama Sew’s give away day, but when I woke up this morning and started to read all of my usual crafty blogs, I was wracked with guilt and a desire to be a part of it all! So I’m having a give away too!!

See all this fabric in this photo?!? I think that MAYBE there’s enough there to make you a mini quilt! Beans, my cat, agrees.

Give away

Just leave me a comment with your favorite color combination and one lucky winner will get a mini quilt made by me in those colors. Good luck!

Quick edit: Clearly I’m new to this and forgot to mention how long it will last. Let’s say 12:00 PM (pacific time) on Friday the 5th!

    Cami sent me. Blues and greens or pinks and browns. Ooh, or aqua and brown. Honestly, whatever you’ve got.

    I love the combination of pink and brown, or pink and greens. Whatever color combination would be nice if I won however!

    Hugs & Blessings!

    Pink and green!

    My sister, Ashley, is a huge fan of your blog and recommended I sign up for your giveaway…that is, since I’ve begged her to make me a quilt and she’s tired of hearing me ask, she thought that maybe if I won yours, pressure would be off. Greens and blues together are typically my favorite. Thanks!

    I love red and turquoise and blues and greens, and pinks and browns. You could decide! Thanks for having the giveaway!

    pink and green!!!

    your pile of fabric is gorgeous. :)

    hi! you are so talented and i love getting inspiration from crafty people like you. how nice to be doing a giveaway! my fav color combo right now is pink, red and aqau! i am due in a couple months with a baby girl so i think it would be a fun addition to her room. :)

  8. Corinne December 3, 2008 at 5:58 pm #

    how generous you are and how greedy am i . my budget has said “nay” to all of these phenomenally cool new fabrics but i drool ceaselessly. my only complaint is that you’re featuring a fabric with dirty orange/rust in it .

    i’m a big lover of greens, blues, black and white and gray. but i think my stash is rather stale so go ahead and throw your bonanza at me and i promise i won’t duck .

    cheers and blessings of the season on you…

  9. Tonya S. December 3, 2008 at 6:03 pm #

    Color combo-let’s see–love purple! But any colors would be great in this dreary, no sun weather!!

  10. Paula December 3, 2008 at 7:02 pm #

    Green and white is my favorite combo right now! Lovely scraps, btw!

  11. rambusch December 3, 2008 at 7:19 pm #

    My favorite colors are brown and pink. Of course, teal is a great color too.

    Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  12. Alison December 3, 2008 at 7:47 pm #

    I love bright pink with light brown or deep chocolate brown with pale pink! But I have also always been partial to the colors of the sea.

  13. Sandy December 3, 2008 at 7:57 pm #

    Oh my I love them all but brown/blues have caught my eye. Thank you.

  14. Amy @ parkcitygirl December 3, 2008 at 8:13 pm #

    How fun! I love pink/orange combos or pink/red – I’m a pink girl :)

  15. Lily December 3, 2008 at 8:28 pm #

    Red + aqua = Yum! :)

  16. Janice Kuntz December 3, 2008 at 9:13 pm #

    orange, teal (or blue), brown. Love most warm colors though!

  17. Carrie December 3, 2008 at 9:29 pm #

    I love odd and unlikely combos of colors that make their way into a scrappy quilt. Oh, and anything with green.

  18. Bridget December 3, 2008 at 9:52 pm #

    I love deep brown with lots of things, but especially green

  19. deb December 3, 2008 at 11:32 pm #

    I would love to win a scrappy quilt. I love so many color combos that it’s hard to limit myself to one. But I see that snippet of apple fabric in your stash–the one with the aqua background with the green, pink and brown apples–and I think it would make a lovely color combo for a quilt.

  20. Sylvie December 4, 2008 at 1:45 am #

    I just loooove pink but I recently discovered the charm of other colours, like chocolate brown…
    Anything without green would delight me actually!
    Thank you for the giveaway.

  21. Donna December 4, 2008 at 2:12 am #

    Pinks & green or blue & green……but whatever you choose would be just fine by me.

  22. Renee December 4, 2008 at 3:36 am #

    What a generous giveaway! My favorite colour combo is pink and green :)

  23. Janis December 4, 2008 at 5:53 am #

    I like anything except purple. Orange, pink and red would maybe be my top picks. :)

  24. Steph December 4, 2008 at 6:51 am #

    I just love this idea. I don’t yet have a blog, but feel like I’m part of the community by reading so many crafty blogs everyday… including yours.

    This is very generous of you and I’d love to put my hat in the ring. My favorites are red/orange/pink.

    Happy Holidays!

  25. Randi December 4, 2008 at 7:50 am #

    Lately I am loving apple green + pink.

    What a great giveaway!

  26. linda k December 4, 2008 at 8:53 am #

    love red and pink!!! and orange and purple and green…..

  27. Betsy December 4, 2008 at 9:45 am #

    I’m loving teal and red right now!

  28. maya December 4, 2008 at 10:13 am #

    pink and green? orange and pink? blue and purple? I’m so psyched for the lucky winner — you’re amazing to do this.

  29. Liz December 4, 2008 at 10:16 am #

    Green and Brown these days…
    Earthy and natural!

  30. Susan December 4, 2008 at 11:24 am #

    oh, how pretty. I’m into reds & oranges.

  31. Tricia December 4, 2008 at 11:30 am #

    I like orange,grey,brown…but I’ve been reading your blog for long enough now to know that I’ll like anything you put together!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  32. Nanna December 4, 2008 at 12:11 pm #

    Browns and blues (and a hint of green and turquise) for me ;-)

  33. adina December 4, 2008 at 12:56 pm #

    So many choices, pink would be great but also blues and browns. If I get it you can pick I guess. Your work is great. Thanks for sharing.

  34. Jane December 4, 2008 at 1:05 pm #

    Wow! Very generous indeed!
    My favorite color combo is turquoisey blue and red. Denise Schmidt had the perfect fabric in Flea Market Fancy that sold out like hotcakes before I was able to ever purchase any! That fabric is a good example of the colors I love!
    I enjoy your blog very much and have linked it to my blog!

  35. Sara Lynn December 4, 2008 at 1:12 pm #

    I like so many color combos, how to choose??? Pink with brown and green or blues I think. All so yummy!

  36. Michelle December 4, 2008 at 2:17 pm #

    WOW! what a great bunch to add to my stash! (that is if I’m lucky enough to win!) I’m loving pinks and oranges for girlies and greens and blues for the little guys!

  37. Deb December 4, 2008 at 2:23 pm #

    Oh my — I love blues and greens, purples… thanks so much for the fantabulous giveaway!!!

  38. Tammy V. December 4, 2008 at 3:14 pm #

    I think you should let Beans pick out his/her favorite fabrics – then make the quilt and have a give away!! I LOVE fabric and any color/print combo is good made into a quilt. What a good idea it is to put quilt blocks on the back too. I also like how you quilted a pattern on the back so the quilt can be folded down on the bed and show more quilting. I might have to try that on a quilt….
    Love all your quilts!!

  39. Amy December 4, 2008 at 4:20 pm #

    Oooo! I love fall colors- anything with oranges, reds, yellows, and hints of green. :) I’m so excited to see what you come up with, regardless of whether or not I win!

  40. jacquie December 4, 2008 at 4:32 pm #

    oooh lovely! how about blue and green, of course orange and pink is nice, but then again, i’m a sucker for red and aqua…hmmmm. maybe i should let you decide!

  41. Lauriewis December 4, 2008 at 4:43 pm #

    So lovely. I think may have just drooled (just a little bit) on my key board. I’m an aqua and chartreus green kind of gal. What a sweet, sweet giveaway!

  42. Abby December 4, 2008 at 7:52 pm #

    I’m a sucker for blue and white. Does white count? If not, lets go brown!

  43. Alana December 4, 2008 at 9:39 pm #

    I think someone might love their pinks as much as I do! I would love to own yet more stuff in pink!

  44. ofebers December 4, 2008 at 9:42 pm #

    I usually let the fabric dictate. I hate to pigeon hole my color choices!

  45. Marlene December 4, 2008 at 9:41 pm #

    I love the new blues and browns and ofcourse always pink. Thanks for a chance to win.

  46. Dallas December 4, 2008 at 9:56 pm #

    I’m not sure I could pick – they all look great. If I won, I’d just have you pick a bright cheery color. :)

  47. Viv December 5, 2008 at 1:53 am #

    Chocolate and teal.

  48. Sarah December 5, 2008 at 7:30 am #

    This is great! I love green and brown, but am open to whatever strikes your fancy!

  49. andrea December 5, 2008 at 8:36 am #

    I love aqua and red lately! I can’t see the post picture because I’m @ work but if I wait until I get home, I’ll miss the chance all together! Thanks!!

  50. Laura December 5, 2008 at 8:59 am #

    I love apple green and chocolate brown…or blue and brown…but you seem to have an excellent eye for putting quilts together so I”ll take what I can get. =)
