Giveaway Day!

**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**


That cornucopia of fabric is a lot to take in. It is a slightly mad and eclectic mix. Fifteen different fabrics and they are all approx 1/8 yard cuts (some more, some slightly less) taken from my ongoing English paper pieced quilt project.


Since I am still working on the borders but have finished using all the main fabrics for the rose stars I thought I could share some of what I have left!

Let's break it down shall we?


{despite my best efforts I have no idea what that colour is! It could be Mint by Bella Solids}; Chinese Lanterns, Lark by Amy Butler; Kasbah, Lark by Amy Butler; Jewels by Lizzy House; Mallow and Bee, Misaki by Melissa White.


School Bus by Kona; Triflora, Loulouthi by Anna Maria Horner; Lovesme Lovesmenot, Innocent Crush by Anna Maria Horner; City Planting, Habitat by Jay McCarroll; Raise The Roof, Habitat by Jay McCarroll.


{Again not sure but I think it's Popsicle by Bella Solids}; Souvenir, Lark by Amy Butler; Dot N' Square, Mini Mikes by Michael Miller; Farmhouse Birds, Farmhouse Retreat by Renee Nanneman of Need'l Love for Andover; Floral Drop, Deer Valley by Joel Dewberry.

GIVEAWAY CLOSED - THANKS FOR ENTERING!
To win the entire 1/8 yard bundle of fifteen fabrics just leave a comment telling me what your favourite band or song was when you were fifteen. (I suspect mine was something from Crazy, Sexy, Cool by TLC or Gangsta's Paradise!)
For a second chance to win follow Charm About You by Bloglovin, GFC or email and leave another comment.

I like to reply to comments but since giveaways are usually busy I won't reply to comments on this post. That doesn't mean that no-reply bloggers will be able to win though! If I can't reach you then you can't win, so please leave your email (myemail at soandso dot com) in the comment.

  25. Your Rose Star looks so wonderful~
    when I was 15 I was listening to a local Chicago band that played Irish music. I could only find one of their songs on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIvTUTEKcN8
    I was dating the son of the mandolin player and this was the sweetest music I had ever heard.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Gorgeous fabrics!!! Good lord -- I was 15 in 1992, which means I probably was in love with Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. I fancied myself quite an expert on alternative grunge at that point. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. When I was 15, I absolutely loved the Backstreet Boys (and honestly, I still like their music 17 years later...I even played it for my girls & they like it too).

  35. Haha... who did I listen to when I was 15? Probably Sarah McLachlan - I was a huge fan of Fumbling Toward Ecstasy in the mid-90s. I was always a bit disagreeable, so even though I loved probably the biggest artist in Canada at the time, I didn't like the popular songs, nope... not Possession for me, it'd be Elsewhere and Ice.

Reading all if these comments is going to be such fun!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  58. When I was 15, I was obsessed with Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and I thought of it as a whole, not individual songs. I also loved two two of the top songs that year, "Lean on Me" and "The First Time Ever I Saw your Face" by the amazing Roberta Flack. It was a soulful year...

  104. I love love love the question. Great idea! I wish I would have thought about that myself. :)

    When I was 15, I would have been a sophomore in high school (obviously), and it would have been the year 2000. My favorite song was probably S&M by Metallica, or Down with the Sickness by Disturbed (unless that came out later?). I was at the beginning of my "hardcore" phase, so who knows what other crap I listened to.

  123. Until I had my own car, we only listened to oldies or a christtian radio station in the car, and our Christian cd's at home so it wasn't until I was 16-18 that I started getting more of a variety of music, so for 15 it was probably a DC Talk or Jars of Clay song
