Free Fabric!

* * * This contest is now closed * * * 

Yeah - I'm sure THAT got your attention!  

It's My Sweet Prairie's birthday all week long.  
(I'm 2 years old.)

Today, courtesy of Michelle at Periwinkle Quilting in Saskatoon, I have free fabric up for grabs!  Of course, I walked in the store to chose some fat quarters and was quickly overwhelmed.  I could not decide what to pick.  I wasn't entirely in love with the newest designs on the market.  So, I pulled out the fourth fabric down (the flowers that look like they are sketched loosely on the pale pink) and fell in love with it.  I asked Patti (staff) to help me find 4 coordinating fabrics, and she did.  I super-LOVE them.

Patti's pick.  Perfect for a spring birthday, don't you think?

We will pick one lucky reader drawn at random by midnight on Friday the 4th.  All winners for the week will be announced here on Monika's birthday - Saturday May 5th.  PLEASE MAKE SURE your email is in the comment or is linked (I can't find your email if you click 'anonymous' so you will need to add it please).

How to enter to win today's prize?  
Simply leave a comment below.  One entry per person please.  If you don't follow my blog, that would be nice if you did.  My Sweet Prairie is also on Facebook if you like it better there.  You can also sign up via email if you aren't on blogger.  To be entered, your comment needs to be left here on the blog though.  Thanks and good luck!  Come back tomorrow for more surprises!

Happy blog birthday! Whoever said no to free fabric? Those colours and patterns are just delightful for Spring! Plus, that would give me stacks of time to make something spring-ish seeing as it's Autumn here!

Monika,
I should try this on my blog - free giveaways to see if I could encourage comments and find out who is reading it. Somehow you always get so many comments.
I'll throw my hat into the ring for the fabric - funny this is I sewed up the pink/dark pink one and the green one up in a couple of baby quilts last weekend.

I was sure that I was already a follower but now that I think of it, I can't remember getting to your blog via Google Reader, the RSS feed. Maybe this time it will work. Happy Birthday, girl. Guess what, my sister's bday is May 5th too. Btw, I've been seeing that b/w crosshatch everywhere on blogland. Everyone's using it. If I see it in a store, it will all come home with me!!

Happy blog birthday! I'm a quiet follower but I do admire your work very much.

I would go for a fabric selection to match your eggs. I get assortments like that from my friend. It's a treat to open the carton. My mom and I buy fabrics for each other and it is always a challenge to use them. Lots of fun using the same fabrics but making something totally different.

Thanks for hosting this contest.

Katherine said...

Happy Blog Birthday! Those fabrics are so fresh and pretty. Thanks for giving us all a chance to win them. Extra thanks to you as I now have the name of a fabric store to visit in S'toon, Yay!
