Sun and Sunflowers: DST Giveaway Day #7

We made it through the week...
and I hope we all have a wonderful weekend ahead of us.
I am, as you know, excited about daylight savings time to begin.
We are within 48 hours of DST!
Winter can stay around for a while...
I just want more light in the evening...
I think that Arizona and Hawaii are the two states that
don't observe DST.  

Sun and sunflowers go together...
Earlier this week I posted my little 
quilt  for grand baby #2... arriving soon!

 Here is grand baby Evie's quilt from last year.
I love this pattern...
so I thought for my last DST
(De Stashing Time) giveaway 
today I would 
offer the pattern and a charm pack to make the sunflowers.

I was at my LQS and they had one last copy of the pattern 
there so I got it for our giveaway.
I have had this charm pack of Urban Cowgirl and
was going to make another quilt from this pattern with it...
but I am going to share it with you.

Just leave me a comment... 
tell me what your most recent fabric purchase was
and I will pick a winner on Sunday. 
Which is daylight savings time!

Nope, I don't do Pinterest. I barely have time to read my emails and respond to comments lately. But I hear there are some beautiful things to see on Pinterest.

I bought some fat quarters of Barbara Brackman's William Morris line to make blocks for Grandmother's Choice.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

This is a sweet pattern - I bought several extra wides for backing at my LQS a couple of weeks ago - and a bolt of muslin.

Carla A Few Of My Favorite Things said...

I just placed an order this morning for some backing fabric that is a black and white toile for the back of my thousand pyramid quilt. I like the longer days, but hate spring ahead.

Carla A Few Of My Favorite Things said...

Oops! Forgot to say how cute the baby quilt is, lucky baby!

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

I have always drooled over your DGD's quilt~ would love to win so I could make one for my little DGD. :-) I bought a little fabric last week at the Expo~ backgrounds, otherwise I am using stash. Have a happy weekend!

Jackie said...

My last purchase was a cream and black fabric that I am trying to accumulate to make myself a quilt, creams & blacks are harder to find. Love your baby quilt, it's simply adorable, what a fantastic giveaway! Please add my name to the draw.

Deborah said...

I bought some Japanese fabric from Blossom Heart Quilts.

Lori said...

My most recent fabric purchase was a cream polka dot on tan background fabric for backing on a quilt made from my Dad's flannel shirts. Thanks for a chance to win. Your quilt is adorable!

Maryjo said...

Oh I would love to win this pattern!! I just found out we are going to be grandparents again and I am thrilled! Your quilt was so cute! I just purchased some batiks for our local quilt club mystery....purples:)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Congratulations on another upcoming grandbaby!! My most recent fabric purchase was ordering Moda wide muslin for a quilt backing.

Kim said...

I love your sunflower quilts! I would love to win the pattern. My most recent purchase was some of Denyse Schmidt's new collection at Joanns.

JoAnne said...

My most recent fabric purchase was from JoAnn's yesterday--their premium quilting fabric is not currently on sale, so I was able to use a 50% off coupon. $12.99 a yard for fabric? At JoAnne? I can only afford it with the coupon. They had a fun blue bird toile that will be used as a backing. Yes, Arizona and Hawaii don't do daylight savings time. (I've lived in both places.) I think that Indiana doesn't, either, or else it just started in the past year or two.

Podunkpretties said...

Its been so long since I bought quilting fabric...but I did buy decor fabric for my spare bedroom redo.

Debbie said...

My last purchase was a collection of various pinks, black and white, and grays for a BOM I have started.

I loved that baby quilt the first time I saw it. I'd love to win! Thanks

Wendy Ouellette said...

Well I went into the shop to get some Avalon yardage, but they did not have it in yet, so I had a credit and used it to buy a background neutral for an upcoming Schnibbles project I am waiting to hear about.( wink, wink)

Karen said...

Just bought 4 yards of Tula Pink for a 10" square swap. Looking forward for what I get in return.

My most recent purchase was a 1/2 yard bundle of Color Me Retro. But having just been laid off after more than 18 years, I guess I'll be sewing up the stash rather than buying fabric for awhile. But not to worry - it will last me a good long while. LOL

Sandra Stoehr said...

I'm not buying right now. I'm moving so I am busy boxing up the stash!!

Quilt Hollow said...

The most recent purchase was sale yardage of Snoopy during holidays so I can make my sis a quilt out of her favorite character. WAIT! WRONG! I bought four yards of backing just this last week and finished the quilt, it's in the dryer now. What a memory! Geez!!

Kristy said...

My latest fabric purchase from the Fabric Shack in Waynesville, Ohio was French General's new La Belle Fleur with all of its vintage, faded beauty. I would love your fabric and pattern, as I have my first granddaughter, Ashley, due mid May. I am so excited! soardkgatfusedotnet

Darlene said...

How did I miss that grandbaby #2 is arriving soon. Where have I been? Congratulations!

This is an awesome giveaway, Sinta. Keeping my fingers crossed.

ferne said...

My last purchase just came in the mail yesterday from Hancocks and it was basic beige and cream. I just keep running out of the basics with all the scrappy quilts I am making.

Vivian said...

My most recent fabric purchase was some GC Shot Cottons at a quilt show. Bought partly to add to my stash and partly to make a surprise mug rug for the non-quilter who went to the show with me.

Such a cute pattern! Would be perfect for a BASICS baby quilt donation I want to do!

marcella said...

I've been flannel shopping on-line lately. This past week I've gotten two squishy packages of flannel in the mail. Always the best mail to open contains fabric!

I just went to my local quilt shop to purchase backing for a full house schnibble I did in Sandhill Plums fabric...I am a beginner quilter and love reading your blog. Thanks for sharing.

gwendiequilts said...

My most recent fabric purchase wasn't for a quilt. My 3 y-o DGS wants me to make him clothes, too, so DD and I took him to Fabric Depot. He asked for dinosaur fabric and he found an awesome print. Then he decided he also wanted a pirate shirt and found a great print for that and pirate buttons to go with it. Then I found a stripe to make shorts to go with the pirate shirt. He just couldn't understand why, after we had the fabrics cut, we left the WHOLE BOLT in the store!

Shelley said...

I got some Marmalade by bonnie and camille to add to my collection of their fabrics..need lots to make a queen plus for my bed :)

How fun to have a DST give-away. I've been using stash, but you always need something new to go with it. My most resent fabric purchase was some gorgeous batiks. Couldn't resist!

My recent purchase was nothing exciting...just a few quarter yards to enhance my stash and then a half yard of cream to work on a sample I'm doing for Tricia Cribbs.
