My First Ever Giveaway! IS NOW CLOSED!

I have been wanting to host my first giveaway for a while.  When I started blogging I had hoped that I would be able to gain some followers along the way.  I am so thankful that I have!

I'm also thankful for the new magazine Fresh Quilts.  My dream of being in a magazine with a pattern, well... it's priceless to me!

So, let's have a giveaway!  Celebrate my milestone, celebrate a fresh new quilting magazine and celebrate YOU!

There are lots of fantastic projects in the magazine!  Including my pillows... complete with patterns.

These are mine.  




My sister Debbrah, tested my patterns for me!  I love the colors she picked and the quilting...pretty great!  I couldn't have pulled it off without her help!  

This gray version was made by Emily.  Recruited by my daughter to help out.  Amazing how different a design looks using different fabrics!  I love this combination!

...And so how about the giveaway?! 

One fat quarter bundle of Hand Dyed Fabric! (total of 1 yard)  From My Etsy Shop.


  >and<

A copy of the new Fresh Quilts magazine...


What do you need to do?  

Visit my Etsy shop:  Twiggy & Opal and tell me which Hand Dyed Fabric Bundle you like the best.  The winner will receive their favorite bundle!


For an extra entry, follow my blog!  (Just be sure to leave a second comment! If you already are a follower, let me know in another comment for a second entry.)

Giveaway ends Sunday March 23rd, 2014.  I will contact the winner by email, so be sure you leave your email if you are a no-reply blogger!  Open to everyone!

Good Luck!
GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!  THANK YOU FOR ENTERING!

  62. Congrats! Thank you for such a great giveaway too!! As you know, I've loved your fabrics since the first time I saw them on Flickr in the Hand-Dyed Fabrics & Batiks photostream. They have ALWAYS drawn me in. The pillows from all of your pattern testers turned out beautiful. It looks like your Aqua Hand Dyes are not available (or maybe never were, but they those potholders are so pretty), which means if I were to be the lucky winner, I'd have to go with the Blue & Green Bundle.

  86. Just came across your blog. Have been playing with the idea of jumping into dying fabrics because I love the color possibilities! I love the jewel tone bundle because, besides being MY favorite colors, I am using these colors in a quilt I have just started for my daughter for graduation. Sarah
