Regency Dandy Giveaway!


Football is on in this room and both boys are happy! I was happily sewing away in 'My Studio' making siggie swap squares and I thought ' this will make a nice Giveaway' - so here it is!

The Giveaway consists of ten 10" x 20" strips, Skinnys or Fat Eighths, whatever you like to call them. The fabrics are from the Windham Fabrics Presents Regency Dandy Ca. 1810 - reproduction, bright, beautiful and a lovely fine weave. For those brave enough, they add a wonderful splash of colour to repro projects and they are being used in modern creations, too - I noticed a couple have been included in Material Obsession's BOM!

I will leave this Giveaway open on this Post until Sunday 30 September(oopsy! that's meant to 30 Ausust, thanks, Mary Grace!) So leave a little Comment and you will be in the draw - let your friends know and that will increase your chance. Being such a shocker at Replies, I will not make any Replies on this Post - more time to visit other blogs and sew!

Good luck and a Happy Weekend!
