100th Post Giveaway Celebration!

When Donna asked me to start this blog with her back in January, I never would have dreamed we'd have 1oo posts in 5 short months. It's been such a great experience sharing our creative endeavors with one another and the blogosphere! The inspiration and encouragement is bountiful and most certainly, greatly appreciated.

To show our appreciation for your support and interest in our blog, we're having a giveaway...well, two actually. Donna and I have both come up with a collection of things we'd like to send away to two lucky winners. Here's the loot:

Donna's vintage inspired loot:

(vintage pillowcase & sheets cut into roughly fat quarters, 1930s repro fq, coordinating striped fabric, thread and a sweet doily).


Sara's red and white polka dot inspired loot:

(dotty mug, fabric, ribbon & post-it notepad, some giant red ric rac and a coin purse like the ones currently in the shop)

If you'd like to see one of these two giveaway parcels arrive on your front porch, just leave us a comment telling us what your favorite fabric is right now! We'll each randomly pick a winner on Wednesday, June 10th. Easy like Sunday morning, right?!
Happy commenting!
- Sara & Donna

My FAV fabric is vintage feedsacks, but Cath Kidston & Michael Miller run a second.

I really enjoy your blog!

Picking a favorite fabric is tough but I'd have to say I'm in love with the Good Folks collection right now. It took a while to grow on my but since I've started cutting it up for a quilt, I'm in LOVE.

Crossing my fingers for the giveaway. Those are so lovely and generous!

Kristy said...

Congratulations on your 100th post! Great giveaways, ladies.

My favorite fabric at the moment is Frog Prince from Heather Ross' Far Far away line, in any color. The double gauze is so soft and the frogs are so darn cute.

So what do you have planned for your next hundred posts?

MLE said...

100 posts--wow! I haven't met a fabric I don't like! I really am into vintage linens these days, though! Thanks for the giveaway!

angela said...

Congratulations on 100! I don't have any vintage linens right now, and that looks like a wonderful way to start.

Amie Plumley said...

I had fun with the coaster swap! I think the fabric I'm most wanting right now is Red Letter Day by Lizzy House.

Isa said...

I really like red letter day at the moment. I just recieved some, and the colors are even better in real life.
Thank you for this giveaway, and happy 100'th post. I hope there will be many, many more.

~Michelle~ said...

I'm in the process of feverishly collecting as many Heather Ross prints as I can find w/out spending $16 for a fat quarter... This is an awesome giveaway - can't believe you got to 100 posts so quickly!

72studios said...

I.m always a fan of amy butler's belle coriander line of fabrics....doesn't matter which colour I'm not choosey!!congrats!

Jennifer Chick-Gray said...

Oh my, I have to pick.... I think it would have to be Red Letter Day by Lizzy House. Thanks for the opportunity to win such great prizes! Congrats to you both.

Tracy said...

Congratulations! My sister and I started our blog in December and are loving the collaborative creative process, too!

I just bought some sweet robot fabric from theheydayshop - http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6525888 - just waiting for it to arrive!

Allie said...

My all time favorites are Kokka fabrics, but I'm currently waiting for some yardage of Lizzy House Ducks in a Row to arrive at my doorstep - I love it so much!

Venezie Bags said...

Congrats on your 100th post!

Awesome giveaway items - they make me giddy with excitement!

Paula Prass said...

Thanks for being around and letting us celebrate with you. I am very excited about Summer Soiree by me (seriously, I'm not kidding) for Michael Miller. Those polka dots would look so great mixed in. If not, I just wanted to wish you a great Blogiversary.

lesley said...

like many others, i'm obsessing about red letter day for the moment. there are too many others to list, so i'll leave it at that! thanks for the giveaway, congrats on 100 posts!

Sarah Fitzpatrick said...

I am currently making a quilt with Amy Butler's Lotus Belle Collection.... It has my heart and so do these giveaways... Thank you for hosting one!!!

My favorite fabric is saris from India -- I've got a ton of everyday-wear, cotton ones, and they go out of fashion so quickly... so then I've got 5 yards of fabric, with a (usually -- the color senses are a bit different there) matching border, and a yard of either contrast or more heavily patterned fabric at the end, so I can make all sorts of fun stuff. Aprons, largely, although the fancier (silk) saris have sometimes turned themselves magically into evening gowns.

mandylifeboats said...

i love heather ross fabric, amy butler and anything moda. i love whimsical prints, bright colors, fun florals and dots. i love your blog. thank u for hosting the giveaway.

Ylime said...

I'm liking Lantern Bloom and American Jane.

Casey said...

I love the new American Jane.

I'd love either of those packages to end up with me!

Glenna Marshall said...

I'm too new to sewing to know what my favorite fabric is right now, but I just made a shirt with some delightful bright sage green fabric that has white polka dots on it. :)

Jodi@SimplyThisThat n.. said...

I have so many fav's right now, it's hard to pick one. AND I haven't seen anything that was at Spring Market, that i don't like! Fig Tree, Jenean Morrison, Paula Prass, Jennifer Paganelli, Camille Roskelley, and more! I love all their fabric. I love vintage sheets and I love red polka dots! I haven't won anything for months, so you really should pick me! LOL ooxx`jodi p.s. just discovered your blog from a tweet. So glad!

Jen said...

I'm diggin' the sea horses and kelp forest fabrics by Heather Ross.

Wow! Congratulations on your 100th post!

I'd love to have one of these goodie packages arrive at my house, both are incredible.

To pick a favorite fabric? Wow, not sure, really. I don't shop by line, I shop by eye. I'm really into the Cherry-o, but to pick a fav, I just can't!

Keep blogging, love reading your posts.

Amy said...

Congratulations on 100 posts. I look forward to the next 100!

Currently I'm completely inspired by solid fabric. I started getting caught up in patterns and fabric and forgot a little about what got me quilting in the first place - love of sewing and designing. I'm challenging myself to work with solids right now to try and get back into designing form and function...but that's not to say I wouldn't love to win either package!

danielle said...

congratulations to you both! love this blog, and this 100th post!! i am in loce with all vintage fabric, especially sheets and pillow cases- i am trying to collect enough to make a lovely picnic rug (even though its winter!) i never get lucky enough in my local op shops, so this giveaway is perfect!

thanks for the chance : )

Jay said...

Wow...100posts!! I am a new blogger and that sounds incredible. Favorite fabric..mmm? Well, if I had to name the only fabric I could ever have again...I would have to chose BATIKS!!! But right now I am working with a fabric called Alpha Buddies by Nancy Murty for Andover Fabrics which is really delightful. You can see what I am doing with the series on my blog!!

Congrats on the blogging!!!

lao80 said...

Loving Far Far Away.

supermedic said...

i don't know if i could pick a favorite--they are all my favorites on different days

Nuts To You! said...

I really like Heather Ross's Far Far Away, and I am also right now looking for pillowcases, even though they aren't a fabric line...they are neat:)

annasoc said...

I love vintage fabrics: I've got some great vintage orange paisley from my mom's stash. New fabrics: so many to choose from. I love Heather Ross's Mendocino with the mermaids.

locuasia said...

Congratulations!!! I hope I make it to the 100th post someday :) I love any cotton fabric I can get my hands on! We don't have anything vintage, brand name or quilt quality where I live so any and all make me happy!
Please add me to your drawings and thank you for your generosity!
Greetings from Mexico ~

Danielle said...

Congrats on 100th post! Hmm, my fav right now would be Heather Bailey's Pop Garden. I love all of the vintage I can find, too. Which I'm sad to say isn't much lately.

Thanks for the giveaway!

hanamik said...

Congratulations!
I think I'm just in love with plain old linen these days.

wendyvee said...

Congratulations Ladies!

I would have to say that I'm really digging alot of Alice Kennedy fabrics of late.

One Crafty Mumma said...

You both have such a lovely blog! I'd love to be included in your giveaway, thankyou. I'm obsessed with all red and chocolate fabrics at the moment. I really love the Wonderland by Momo fabric range, it's just so lovely. Amy Butler fabrics are always gorgeous too! I didn't realise that you had an Etsy store until now - those coin purses are so beautiful!

emtdlb said...

I don't have a favorite fabric at this moment. Since my husband has been out of work for a year, I haven't been looking at fabric much, it makes me sad. But I do love fat quarters of all kinds and to be honest, I haven't met a piece of fabric I didn't like. Thanks for the chance.

Holly said...

Congrats on your 100th post. Before you know it you will have 200. My favorite fabric is anything 1930's.

Mary said...

My current fave is the Lizzy House Red Letter Day line. I just bought some and am waiting for it to come in the mail (patiently of course).

Tracy said...

My favorite right now is Jane Sassaman's Prairie Gothic...great summer colors...!

sfer said...

My favorite has been for a looooong time Anna Maria Horner's drawing room sketchbook... of which I don't own a single piece. The sewy part of me hates not living in the US :-(

Ariel said...

My favorite, most used fabric right now is Heather Bailey's Pop Garden line...I've made it around to using just about every print in the collection and love them!!! So bright and beautiful!

Julia said...

My very favorite right now is Denise Schmidt's Katie Jump Rope! I love it so I can hardly bear to cut into it though it is perfect for everything! I also have a small collection of black&white prints...I love those, too!

Lina said...

Hi girls! Favourite fabric is definitely linen following by anything funky and vintagey...Happy 100th post by the way - that was pretty quick!

Shari said...

A favorite? As in a single fabric? I guess it has to be Joel Dewberry Sunburst in Orange from the Aviary line. I found an Etsy seller with yardage at a great price so I'm going to create a new top for summer (which will then provide plenty of scraps for patchwork). I think it has to do with this Orange phase I'm going through---my Dutch husband and two boys love this color!

Sarah said...

nice giveaway! I love anything amy butler right now. :)

Christina said...

Congrats girls! I'm always late to liking fabric. A favorite right now is ...i'm racking my brain. I don't know that I have a favorite at the moment. I'm excited for David Walker's "Oh Boy!" to be released.

Alice said...

I can never pick just one favorite. I love anything with bright colors, liking the pinks and teals right now.

Sue Cahill said...

1930 repro's - any and all of them, I just can't get enough!!!!

Nicolemiko said...

My favorite fabric right now is anything super soft! Ha. I also am desperately wanting some vintage pillowcases to play around with.

Amber said...

I am really into civil war repros :D Love love love them!

Great give away and congrats on the big 100!
Amber

Mistea said...

I'm really liking the Farmers Market fabrics from Sandy Henderson, the crisp clear colours are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

Holly said...

Happy 100 ladies!!

Such different styles for your give-away picks, but I love them both!

I have many favourites (you know I have a soft spot for anything Amy Butler - especially Gothic Rose, with the hot pink).

Vintage linens (a lovely pack from Sara's Etsy shop supplemented with a few of my own thrift finds with Donna).

Neptune by Tula Pink - am starting a coin quilt with tone-on-tone white polka background.

Michael Miller - Around Town. Just finished the quilt for my son's BIG-boy bed.

Was I REALLY supposed to pick only one???

Thanks for sharing all of your inspiring creations and tips so generously...

M and E said...

I just bought some Minny Muu prints, and they are totally adorable. I don't know what I'm going to use them for, but I just couldn't resist!

tammywith2 said...

Congrats on #100!!!

I would have to say my favorite right now is just this orange fabric that I have that looks like it has blue and metallic gold tile work on it. I am trying to create a pattern to make myself a new bible bag.

Hey, can't wait for the next 100!

Tiffany said...

My favorite fabric right now is Basic Grey - I'm going to make a quilt and am so excited, it's beautiful.

Ariane said...

Congratulations on your 100th post. My favorite fabric right now is Snippets by American Jane. I bought a bunch but haven't decide what pattern to use yet. But I can't wait to make something with it.

savyjade said...

What an amazing giveaway! I love the Amy Butler fabrics. I have to admit that as a new sewer I am not farmiliar with most lines yet. Congrats on your 100th post!!

annie said...

100th, in such a short time..congrat girls..i really do enjoy your site..in fact you have encouraged me to start sewing again..it would be impossible to choose just one fabric that i like more than another..its an addiction with me.

Sarah S said...

Hi, ladies...congrats on your 100th post. I have enjoyed your blog from day one. My favorite fabric right now is one that I haven't had my hands on yet. That Heather Ross double gauze intrigues me so much. It seems like a great summer weight. Thanks for the giveaway.

sewing_passion said...

Love you blog - congrats on your 100th post. It's so hard to choose a favorite fabric. Valori Wells is one of my favs though!
Thanks for the chance to win

Candace said...

You know I love me some vintage sheeting. Keeping my fingers crossed. :)un

KBraden said...

I can't say I have a favorite b/c I just love fabric!

koala brains said...

I don't have a favorite fabric but now that I've been sewing a while I think I'm ready to purchase some designer fabric. I'll have to start looking around at what's all out there. Congrats on the 100th post!

coffeechris said...

Happy 100th Post! Favorite fabric hard to choose, anything in summer colors (orange, yellow) and Anna Marie Horner fabrics.
