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!

Oh, I am so wicked - I should be doing all my Replies and Comments instead of Posting! I promise I'll dedicate myself over the weekend!
This is my Green Tea and Sugar Beans BOM quilt - today I have sewn the two double pinwheel blocks above the applique - easy-peasey and accurate using foundation piecing! I have mentioned before, I do cheat where I can, to save time! It is gong to be a bright,crazy quilt, isn't it?
Oh, my heart went pitter-patter when I saw this on Sweet P's Blog - Coffee Time Stitches! I think it is a must have, though I will have to figure a way to get the yarn. It can be safely stored until I'm an old lady and have time to crochet, LOL! It is Woodcliff Throw and a free pattern!
Purple and Paisley, you must check this one out - maybe you, too Mary Grace!

Oh, dear - I have to stay home today and be a Domestic Goddess, again! Two days out in a row, Tuesday to our State Guild, WAQA, and then yesterday off to our Rough Diamonds Group for a Sewing Day!
In the pic above - a Japanese Noren - how glorious with all the sashiko! A gift to Ann - these beautiful pieces hang on a rod in doorways - the handwork is superb!
Sue, our hostess, at the head of the table and Ann to her right. A little bit of glare as it was a beautiful, spring day here yesterday - and Sue's house is very light and bright with great views of Perth's beautiful Swan River.
This one above is for Mildred of Nalley Valley! Mildred enjoys all things elegant and refined and I'm sure this will bring back some memories for her!

Yesterday I had a fun day working on my new BOM! With all due respect to Sue Ross I have successfully machine pieced the block though hand piecing is recommended - so far, so good!
There are quite a few girls doing this project so if you would like to pop over to Sue Ross BOM,
I have posted on my progress so far and left a few helpful hints. Oh, or maybe you would just like to check it out and think about joining - of course Comments would be lovely!

I've made a start on my Signature Blocks! Should I ask your opinion? These are made from Windham Fabrics Regency Dandy Ca. 1810 - I love them, but I know they won't be everybody's cup of tea - but then, I know I would like a few scattered through my quilt! I'll decide on the other 60 when I get back to the machine!

What a lovely day - lots of Show and Tell! How beautiful is this - camellias from Sandra's Dad's garden. Now as you know, my sewing table is quite long and what a variety we have here - enough to fill three vases, so my house is looking really pretty at the moment, thanks, Sandra!

Goodness me - chalk and cheese! Let's talk about the above - I love birdies and this fabric is 'starling' by Alexander Henry. The blue is by Lecien and the lilac/green by Kaffe! I do have an idea to put these fabrics to use.
