Birthday Giveaway

If you always give, you will always have. –Chinese Proverb

Tomorrow is my birthday. I will be 21 with 20 years' experience. And I'm celebrating with a giveaway! 'Cause that's how I like to roll. The story goes like this:

Once upon a time, I won a a half-yard bundle of Carnaby Street in the Cool Peace colorway, from Pat Bravo herself. It was pretty groovy.

The cool thing about half-yard cuts is that there is plenty to share. It is a mathematical law that if you divide something by half, you always have half left. So today I'm giving away a fat quarter bundle of Carnaby Street in the Cool Peace colorway, from Pat Bravo to me to you. The fabrics have been washed, pressed and squared up so "fat quarter" is used loosely here.

The Fine Print:
• To enter this giveaway, leave a comment telling me your favorite color combination. Or just leave a comment. Whichever.
• You can enter today's giveaway only once.
• Non-blogging/non-Google users and international entrants are welcome.
• If you do not have a Google account, use the name/url {url optional} commenting option and make sure you leave your e-mail in your comment in the following format: address (at) domain name (dot) com.
• Comments with no contact information will be deleted.
• Google account users: not sure if your contact information will be attached to your comment? Click here:


• Duplicate comments will be deleted.
• Comment moderation is on, so don't panic when your comment doesn't show up. I'm notified of new comments and will approve them periodically each day, after which they'll show up on the post.
• The giveaway will close at 10:00 pm {MST} on Wednesday, January 15th. Winner will be chosen by random drawing and notified by e-mail and announced here by 8:00 pm on January 16th.

Good luck!

What a generous offer your birthday giveaway is.
I love Caribbean Blue which shows up as a background in the colors you are giving away.
Reminds me of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, peaceful soul calming colors.

Happy Birthday to you. Thanks for having a giveaway. Love the fabric. My favorite colors are black, white and red.

Jeri Niksich said...

Happy Birthday I hope you have a wonderful day planned out. My favorite colors are Blk & Red, but any free fabric is my favorite. The 2nd best thing about this giveaway is that you have graciously Squared the fabric, that is one thing I don't like doing. Of course the best thing is the giveaway itself. Thank you.

Lately I've been using a lot of blue/green and blue/purple batiks but I keep trying different colors and maybe someday I will get myself to use oranges, browns and tans which seem to be my least favorite, hoping I will find just the right shades that can make them click for me. Have a great Birthday.

Red and grey, or black and red. LOL Or even red and white... notice a theme here? I love red! ;-) My DD is very into aqua, so if I should win, I would make a few things for her. Thanks for the fun!

Christine M said...

Happy birthday Elizabeth! I love the look of red and aqua but really, there are so many gorgeous colour combinations!

Jean C. said...

Can a seamstress/quilter actually have a favorite color combination? I can't say that I actually do... there are sooo many terrific colors out there, it's really hard to choose. Seems it changes all the time. I love scrappy looks, nicely blended colors that share the lime-light, black/whites, some brights, mellows... and I suppose just about all colors... can't say there is one out there that's shouting don't buy me! Lol...
thanks for letting me enter! Oh, and happy Blog anniversary, Birthday, and 1000th post! That altogether is quite an accomplishment!

Happy Birthday! You have such an inspirational blog! I always love to read what you're up to. I can't think of a favorite color combination, because there's so many that I love! I'm sewing a quilt with orange and aqua right now and I love that, but my favorite color to use in my quilts is always red!

Joy said...

I just found you from fandom in stitches and I'm so glad to find your great blog! Happy Birthday! My favorite color combinations depends on where I'm seeing them. In my kitchen it is aqua and red. In my living room I have a rainbow and red/black/white/blue/green. In my bedroom I love grey with pops of bright colors.
