Sharing My Bounty

Hello to my friends who regularly visit with me and welcome to those stopping by from Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

For those that don’t know me, my name is Melissa and I live in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri with my husband (I refer to him as That Man — it’s a classic movie reference), teenage daughter and retired racing Greyhound (she was in three races — two she came in last and the third was scratched from the lineup — but in our eyes she’s a winner).

I love nature and enjoy hitting the trails at parks and natural areas to run, hike and bike. Yesterday That Man and I went on a nice 36 mile bike ride on the Katy Trail. The photo above I took the other day from the bluffs above the Meramec River in Castlewood State Park.

Some (but not all) of my other favorite things (in no particular order) are: vintage, primitive folk art, medieval knights, history, genealogy, classic movies, books, big band music, bread pudding, Peter Pan collars and making.

I can’t get enough of 1930s repro prints! These are some from a fabric swap I recently hosted. We’re currently on the second round with more rounds to come. I’d be tickled pink if you’d join us.

Those that know me know I love giveaways! I host a weekly link up of giveaways I call Giveaway Roundup. You can always find a link to the current one in the upper right corner of my blog. I also love hosting giveaways and entering (and hopefully winning) giveaways! Actually, I’ve been pretty lucky at winning and That Man is wondering when that will translate into a lottery jackpot win. But to get to why I’m here today — I was not surprisingly eager to participate once again in SMS Giveaway Day.

Being the procrastinator that I am, last week I started thinking about what I might give away this time but didn’t bother myself too much about it because I always know things work themselves out. So, I was pleased as punch Friday morning when I woke to find an email from Rita at Red Pepper Quilts letting me know I was the lucky winner of a recent giveaway on her blog! What a great way to start a four day weekend off from work. The prize was my choice of fabric cuts totaling four yards from Birch Fabric’s Everyday Party collection from Fabric Worm. That solved it!  I picked out eight half yard cuts that I decided I would cut into two sets of fat quarters. One bundle for me and another to share with one of you! I also like to pay it forward when I can, by the way.

Everyday Party is a brand spankin’ new collection from Birch Fabrics. Here are the prints I chose. The strawberries and mushrooms are what caught my eye first when I saw this collection but I think I like the Meadow Floral print best with the birds and flowers. The Ant March print is a fun one.

Here’s a photo from Rita’s blog of the actual fabric for four of the prints I selected. I think you can get a much better look at the prints with photos of the actual fabric than with the digital representations.

Here is another photo from Rita’s blog of the actual fabric for the full collection. The bundle I’m giving away has all but three four (I miscounted when I first published this) of the prints that are shown. Eight in all in my bundle.

Would you like share my bounty and win a bundle of eight fat quarters?

For a chance to win, you must use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter. You don’t need a Facebook account. Simply enter your name and email address in the widget instead. International entries are welcome. There are a bunch of options to earn extra entries, if you’re so inclined. Do as little or as much as you like. I’ll leave this giveaway open until the night of Friday, May 16th. The next day I will let the widget randomly select the winner and then contact that lucky duck by email.

If for some reason the Rafflecopter widget doesn’t load, please click here to go to it directly. It can be fickle sometimes.

    Love that you have a retire greyhound. They are THE BEST dogs! Like a couch potato that can run 65 miles an hour if they want to. We have a spca rescue dog from WV. 1/2 lab and 1/2 whippet and leans to the whippet side, so he’s only 35 lbs. And loves to run. He just doesn’t have the needle nose – narrow face…he has more the lab face. How I love the needle nose dogs!

Love old movies, Clark Gable was swoon worthy in Gone with the Wind! By the way, Diana Gabaldon is coming out with the next book in the Outlander series in a few months I hear. I’ve read them all, but it’s been a while, I have to reread. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I can see why you would have a hard time parting with this cut fabric. But parting is such sweet sorrow so goes the quote. I especially love the ants, the strawberries and the mushroooms. Would definitely make the cutest baby quilt. Thank you for being a part of the Sew Mama Sew giveaway and giving all of us a chance to win this fabric.

    That fabric is so darn cute. I especially love the ants, the mushroooms and the strawberries. What a darling quilt this would make. I can see how you might be influenced to keep this fabric for yourself. Parting is such sweet sorrow and you made a wise decision to share with us.

    My mom was born in 1934 and her baby quilt looks like it was made from your repro’s example. She used to tell me that when Grandpa went to the feed store, Grandma would nag at him to be sure to buy sacks that matched so that the girls could have dresses made from all the same fabric.

    Hi Melissa, you know I live in MO too. Just east of KC, well about 45 mins. away. We live on our own little 7 acres, raise rabbits, chickens, quail, guineas, have several gardens that Mr. Gwin tends and I can and preserve. We have our own orchard of peach, apples, pears, plums and cherries. We have a house way too big for us, a ornery little chihuahua and numerous farm cats, meaning they hang around the house but are not allowed in. I love to piece quilts and quilt. My sewing place looks like a mini fabric shop but it is a beautiful place to work and dream. Thanks for another fun giveaway. We all love to add to our stash.
