Giveaway Day: Treasures and Tidbits, 6 FQs!

I'm so excited that it's time, once again, for Sew Mama Sew's giveaway day!


If you're visiting for the first time, welcome!

Today, I'm offering one winner six fat quarters of one of my favorite recent "modern 30s" lines, Treasures & Tidbits from Robert Kaufman Fabrics. These bold prints are wonderful on their own (I'm seeing retro aprons and summer picnic quilts!) and also make great stash-building basics.


Since last year's spring giveaway day, I've been through a lot of changes, moving from New York City to Portland, Maine. Reflecting on this journey has gotten me thinking about new ones, so to enter this giveaway, leave a comment by 5 pm PST on Friday, May 10 telling us where you'd like to travel next!

I'll pick a random comment and notify the winner by email by Sunday, May 12,  so please make sure you leave an email address in the comment (either through your Blogger account by making your email address "visible," or by including it in the comment text) to be eligible.

Again, Make sure you're not a "no-reply" blogger (I used to be one without knowing!), or leave your email in the comment, please!

Tell me you're a follower for a second entry :)

You're international?  That's fine!

As for me... things are just warming up here in Vacationland, so I'm not sure if I can bring myself to go away anytime soon! If I could pick any place to visit, though, it would be somewhere with jaw-dropping landscapes in the American southwest, I think.

I love giveaway day not only for the chance to win tons of supplies, and handmade prizes, but also for the opportunity to find new blogs and sources of inspiration. Head on over to check it out!
