Post #150 Give Away Contest

I just passed post # 150, and yesterday was National Quilting Day! Let's make it National Quilting Weekend. Let's have a fabric give way.


These pieces cut from my stash vary from 8 by 10 inches to 9 by 7 inches. the two on the far left are feedsack, and there is a small hole in the pink with berries one. The pink with morning glories fabric is tightly woven but has a line of stitching holes along the selvage. It was also a small piece. I'm guessing it was a sugar sack. The flowered fabric on the right and on the bottom are dress weight, or quilting weight cottons.

A story about the two feedsacks: I purchased these at an antique mall. The pink with berries sack had some rips so the price was very reasonable. When I got to the front counter to purchase these, the ladies there said, "Oh, booth 17. She had some real pretty feedsacks a few weeks ago." (This pink one is NOT pretty? This blue one is NOT cute?)

The contest: Comment on this post for ONE entry. My current followers as on Sunday March 21 are automatically entered. But a comment here will give you another entry.
And let's be honest, a giveaway is done to promote readership. So if you are not currently a follower, become a follower, and that will be another entry.
EVA SB is not eligible as she won my last give way.

DEADLINE TO ENTER: MARCH 31 8 PM eastern time (my time zone!)

I will make a list of entries and submit them to the list randomizer at Random.org (See this blog post for example) to pick the winner.

Good luck, and it's back to sewing!

I love those fabrics and have a perfect project for a table runner for them, so I hope I win.
I also think they would make some cute yo-yos!

Amazing - just as I am posting about flour sack dresses you are giving away samples that include sack material. I would LOVE to have these and I would actually sit down and sew something very special with them! I happen live right next door to the quiltmaster of the area. I'll keep my fingers crossed and go find my needles and thread...it's around here somewhere...
Thanks for stopping by today!
