Giveaway day part 1!

For giveaway day, I'm trying an experiment. I'm doing 2 giveaways.

Here's the first one:
It's a charm pack of Moda's Tranquiltity line. I bought 2 of these and used one to make this quilt for my grandma-in-law. And so I'd love to share the second one with someone else!

To enter: leave a comment telling me about what you'd use it for.
To enter a second time: become a follower and leave a second comment telling me, or if you are already a follower, just leave a second comment telling me.
I'll close the entries on the 20th at 5pm central time.

And you might want to check out giveaway part 2......

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Beautiful Charm Pack. I actually like the quilt you made for your grandmother-in-law. My immediate focus is making charity quilts for a wheel chair regatta (where disabled people are given free boat rides), as I want to give a lap quilt to the participants that we give rides to on our boat at this event.

  16. I have some of this fabric to make a quilt for my bed. Mostly I have a bunch of the bird panels for the top part of the quilt. So I think I'd use the charms, together with leftovers from the quilt to make pillow cases or pillow shams to match.

  38. Charm packs are just about the best thing since indoor plumbing. There are so many patterns rattling around in my brain that NEED charms (oh, yes, I said NEED!). I am always happy for a new shopping bag, and charms are so much more charming (yes, I know) than the plain ol' canvas ones or those with a store's name ever so subtly splashed across the front... Wait, where was I?

    Oh, thank you. That's it. THANK YOU for participating in the fun today and for your generous giveaway! (Pick me!)

  122. What a great prize - I would use it to make my first ever quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Wow... this giveaway really got me thinking! I mean the two options... I finally choose the charm pack, because I criticize my stash for being such a hodgepodge itself that if I keep adding totally uncoordinating fabrics it will one day rebel and kick me out of my own house, so I'll calm it down with some Momo. Plus... Momo is actually one of my favorite designers, so there's another reason for choosing this :-)

    What I would do with it? I've been lately obsessed about how few pillows and cushions I have at home, so I would make some... As many as I can! :-)

    Cheers from Barcelona, and thanks for the chance to win!
