And we have a winner! Plus the quilt!

Thankyou thankyou thankyou to everyone who took the time to visit my blog and enter the giveaway. I had 230 entries on the blog and another dozen who liked the Facebook page, as well. Out of all of those comments, the lucky winner is… –drumroll, please–

Congratulations to Rachel! You’ll be receiving the bright and cheery wallet I made. I know I said I’d send it on Monday, but that was before I realized it is a holiday. Whoops! Instead, it will go out bright and early Tuesday morning. Thanks again everyone.

In other news, I finished the Strawberry Patch baby quilt and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Take a look at more pics on the Etsy page.

It’s a Giveaway!

I’ve participated in plenty of blogger giveaways, but always as the one hoping to win (which, in fact, I have been lucky enough to do twice!). Now it’s my turn to give back as part of the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day. There are a five hundred-odd blogs participating, and just for the price of leaving a comment, you’ll be entered to win. I’m offering up a brand-spanking new wallet that I made just for this giveaway. It’s made from both re-used and new fabric. The outside is remnants of a linen blouse with pintucks that I used as inspiration for the padded quilting that runs in the opposite direction. Inside are two pieces from the new Spring Street line by Carolyn Gavin and a colorific polka dot that I used for the trim, too.
You can win this totally one-of-a-kind wallet by leaving a comment. Tell me what you like about it, or what you’d like in another version. Or tell me what you think about the new Strawberry Patch quilt I’m working on:

The Strawberry Patch quilt is coming together slowly thanks to all that patchwork.

You have until Friday to leave a comment. Like Crinkle Dreams on Facebook for an additional entry. I’ll be choosing a winner on Saturday, shipping on Monday. I’ll ship it anywhere in the world, too. The U.K., Malaysia, Easter Island… it doesn’t matter where you live. (I’m probably jealous, anyway, if it’s outside the U.S. and warm.)

Not loving this one? Check out the others in the Etsy shop.

Going Coastal Is More Fun Anyway

Going Coastal fabric
My mother loves beach-themed anything and while she already has a lighthouse-themed quilt that he made herself, I’m thinking I might have to make something for her from this fantastic new line of fabric from Michael Miller. It won’t be available until summer, so that’s a nice reprieve. I’ve got plenty to do before then!
