Happy Friday Everyone!
Thank you so much to all of you for following along on the Playful Petals Blog Tour!–Today is the last day of the blog tour and I hope you all have enjoyed it. Lee is sharing her thoughts on Playful Petals along with her adorable Daisy Fields pillow(pictured above) on her blog today. I love the yarn dyed dark linen background fabric she chose to use for her pillow. That fabric has been wanting to make it’s way into my stash for way too long! Be sure to hop over to Lee’s and check out her blog–she is always such an inspiration!!

And now, we are moving onto the giveaway portion of today–I know you all have been waiting. =) I seriously want to enter this giveaway myself…it’s a good one!–And it’s all about my favorites.
Of course, the winner of the giveaway will receive a copy of Playful Petals:
Next up, how about some Moda Fabrics layer cakes?!—Moda fabrics has been and will remain my favorite fabric manufacturer. 15 years ago, I fell in love with a certain Moda fabric designer and spent hours scouring the internet for pieces from one of her lines of fabric. This was back in the day of dial up internet which meant it was slow going..but, I just fell in love with Moda!
Moda Fabrics has sent me two layer cakes for my giveaway, one of Kate Spain’s new Horizon line of fabric & one of The Jung’s new Pedal Pushers line of fabric.
Well, I figured why stop with one online shop?..So I reached out to another of my favorite online shops…Fabric Shack. Fabric Shack has both a great online store and a brick and mortar store which happens to be about 25 minutes from my sister-in-law’s house in Cincinnati. So, it is a must stop for me whenever we visit. The thing I love the most about shopping online at Fabric Shack is that they will cut 1/8 yd. cuts of fabric. For my scrap loving self, this is perfect! In fact, I bought 1/8 yd. cuts of the complete Up Parasol line from Fabric Shack when I was making my Tiled Blooms quilt:
Fabric Shack donated a $25 Gift Certificate to their online shop as part of today’s giveaway!
Well, since I don’t do all of my fabric shopping online, I contacted my favorite local quilt shop, Miller’s Dry Goods, to see if they would be interested in donating to my giveaway…and they said yes!–Now you might be thinking that you won’t be able to shop here..but, they also have a wonderful online shop to which they’ve donated a $30 Gift Certificate.
They carry all kinds of goodies..some of my favorites: The 8 wt. Finca Perle Cotton I am always referencing for hand quilting, Aurifil thread(which everyone in blogland is always referencing), Moda fabrics, Cotton & Steel fabrics, a great selection of solids, and the list goes on. Plus, you will not find a more accommodating staff!
Plus, they have the prettiest quilting retreat center, The Rural Thimble, right beside their fabric shop. Every time I shop there, I am envious of the ladies staying over in that facility–so pretty, newly opened, and just perfect for a group of 10 ladies to get together and sew to their heart’s content.
So, here’s the rundown of the giveaway prizes(a value of nearly $200):
- Playful Petals Book
- 2 Moda Layer Cakes
- $50 Gift Certificate to Fat Quarter Shop
- $25 Gift Certificate to Fabric Shack
- $30 Gift Certificate to Miller’s Dry Goods
