I’m a Winner!!

Yippee!  I follow a number of Quilting Blogs and occasionally one will offer a giveaway. I do not always comment or jump through the required hoops to enter, but last month I did.

Carole at the From My Carolina Home Blog curated the August Blogger Bundle sponsored by Bernie at Needle & Foot Fine Fabrics. After selecting these fabrics, Carole decided to create some simple placemats & then continued with the leftovers to make a matching Table Topper. Four placemats required just 6 Fat Quarters, and the giveaway was a Bundle of Fat Quarters of the fabric Carole used.  See her blog for the tutorial.

Carole’s completed Placemats (Thank you for allowing me to share your picture.)

Needle & Foot Fine Fabrics had bundles in Fat Quarters or 1/2 yard cuts in her Etsy Shop.  Four placemats can be made with the 6-Fat Quarters or six placemats would require the 1/2 yard bundle. I had already decided I wanted to make six placemats, so when I heard I had won a Fat Quarter Bundle, I contacted Bernie.  She was quick to reply and very helpful. I purchased the extra fabric and received shipping notification the next day. Even though it had to travel cross country, I had my fabric two days later.  Not an affiliate or commercial, just a very satisfied customer!

2018-August Blogger Bundle Prize

I’m happy for a number of reasons:

  • I won some fabric!! YAY!!
  • Carole’s tutorials are clear and easy to follow, with lots of pictures.
  • With the slump I’ve been having with my stitching, this project is perfect for completing something quickly – Fabric is already chosen for me, the pattern will be quick and simple, and placemats have been something I’ve been wanting to make for myself. Win-Win-Win!
  • I’ve found Bernie @ Needle & Foot Fine Fabrics and will be keeping my eye on her blog and shop!

Well, back to cleaning, and cleaning – Does it ever get done?  I need to find the top of my cutting mat & ironing board so I can get to working on the placemats!

 

Happy Stitching & Moving!
