Gratitude and a Giveaway
Yesterday our family went through this and this list of gratitude prompting questions. Some of the questions were really unique and it made me think about all of the things that I am grateful for.
One of the things that I am grateful for is quilting. I love the planning, picking fabric, cutting, sewing and quilting. (Not so hip on basting and binding, but you can't have it all.) When all is going well, it provides a sense of peace (some people say mind-numbing-piecing, I say peace).
I love taking beautiful fabrics and bringing them to a higher plane of beauty and order through piecing and quilting. I love that my quilts are always beautiful even when my kitchen isn't. :)
I am more grateful than I can express for all of the people I have met through quilting. I don't know if quilting attracts super cool people or if a shared passion makes us all compatible, but I love hanging out with my quilting friends.
I am grateful that I have had so many more opportunities than I could ever imagine open up to me through quilting. It started with my first post on Moda Bakeshop and the journey just keeps going.
Did I mention that I am grateful for fabric? There are so many beautiful fabrics!!! And Moda Fabrics has graciously provided four charm packs for a giveaway today. Let me tell you about them.
Dottie - Lots of dots in small and medium sizes. A great basic and blender. I know I have mentioned this before, I really like dots.
Basic Mixologie - This is my favorite of the bunch (it almost stayed at my house). Lots of tone on tone and small modern prints in great colors. It should reach stores in December, so you are getting a sneak peek.
Flying Colors - This line of fabric features birds, rainbows and raindrops. It is not due in stores until February. You could be the first one on the block with this fabric! Not that that is saying much in my neighborhood. I think I am the only one on the block that haunts online fabric stores. :)
To enter to win these charm packs, I want to know what you are grateful for. There are three chances to win:
1. What are you grateful for today? It can be quilting related or not.
2. What Moda designer or line of fabric are you most grateful for?
(I am super grateful for all of the great fabrics Sandy Klop of American Jane creates.)
3. Share this giveaway on social media. (on Instagram here.)
Please, leave a separate comment for each entry.
The giveaway is open to quilters with a US postal address. (I am beyond sorry to have to limit it.) It will run until the morning of Monday, November 30 CT. A winner will be randomly selected after my children leave for school.
Thanks! And have a great Thanksgiving weekend!
