While the cat's away, the mice will play!

Hello bloggers!  It's Laura, Mary Ellen's daughter.  Mom left today for Quilt Market in Houston.  While she was gone, I decided to sneak up to the computer and post another Give Away!  Shhh, don't tell!  I bet she didn't think when she hired me that I'd be sneaking around giving things away while she was gone!  Shhhh, it'll be our little secret!

Since the Little Quilts Shirtings are so popular and versatile, I figured we'll give away another

BUNDLE OF 6 FAT QUARTERS & an
AUOGRAPHED COPY OF THE BOOK
"LITTLE MEMORIES" By Little Quilts

(Don't worry, if she catches me I'll just talk my way out of it like I did when I was a teenager!)


Here's your give away question:
What is your favorite style of fabric to work with?

Your name will be entered in the drawing when you post your answer.  Drawing ends Saturday, October 10th at 6pm.  I'll post the winner Saturday night.

Reproduction Fabrics. 1930s, 1940s or 1880. I love all of it. Once ina while I do buy something else but usually it is for a special project.

I am kind of a beginner quilter but I seem to always be drawn to stripes and polka dots.

Quilt Enthusiast said...

Another opportunity to win. Little Quilts fabric is my
favorite. The Little Memories shirtings are so soft. With one of my fat quarter bundles I used for every
other thimble in a queen size thimble/civil war repro-
duction quilt for a grand birthday present for DH.
I love everything Little Quilts and carry my Little Quilts
Throughout the House book on every vacation I have
taken. It is my "Good Nite Moon" like book to settle
into a relaxing dreamy cozy sleep. Just a kid at heart.

LuAnn Smallman said...

Oh, I got carried away and didn't say what kind of
fabric I like to work with. I love to work with colorful
fabric. I choose the reds and chedders and greens of
the civil war era. I also like Kaffe Fassett and use
his lines with Little Quilts reproductions like the
quilt made by Sylvia Johnson of Little Quilts on the
2008 BHG calendar. I have use Kaffe's fabric with
Little quilts Little Houses quilt. I also like the colors
of pink and purple included in the Little Quilts palate.
If I can add those little quilts color suprises in my
quilts I enjoy the quilt so much better.
