**Giveaway now closed**
Well, I’m not going to tell you exactly when my birthday is (but it’s in April), but this story starts a few weeks ago when I was musing that I was mostly buying blender type fabrics, and having a hard time finding multicoloured prints that I really liked. And I had just got Instagram on my smart phone, and discovered pop-up sales! Really! Must have!
And therefore I ended up with a half-yard bundle of Botanique by Joel Dewberry from the lovely Jenn at Knotted Thread. In person, some of the prints I love (and I mean *love*), some are nice blenders, and they’re definitely all classy.
Would you like to share? As a birthday present for me, and you, I will split this bundle.
But what to make with them? Can you help? I am considering the paparazzi bag from Sew Sweetness or another 241 tote (Noodlehead), or mixing into my nephew’s quilt. In between petting this fabric, and other projects, I have started adding corners to my Virtual Quilting Bee blocks. These colours were requested by my nephew, but I’m kinda burned out on these (some of the blocks had really odd measurements), so I’m going to see what I have, add some square-in-square economy blocks, and see if I can make it up to a full size quilt.
Leave a comment–perhaps about my choices above, whether you’ve ever made them, or another pattern you suggest–and let me know if you would like half of the bundle as half-yards, or your split as fat-quarters, and I will draw a name on April 3. (International entries welcome).
