National Sewing Month and giveaway

Did you know that September is National Sewing month??  You can read about it at the Sewing & Craft Alliance.

During our travels all the way to Minnesota and Wisconsin this summer, I had the opportunity to visit several fabulous quilt shops.  And when I was there, I found a little bit of fabric that I wanted to share with one of my readers.  Because we as quilters love to sew, this seemed like the perfect time to host a giveaway.


I couldn't resist these pretty aqua fat quarters. The coordinating yellow Art Gallery fabric is a 1/6th yard cut, but I thought it matched very nicely. I'm including some Connecting Threads Essential thread in light gray.  I like that color as it blends in with almost everything.  And a package of the Clover Wonder Clips.

So to enter this giveaway, please leave a comment and tell me where you live.  Sometimes I look at the stats and am amazed at how many places are highlighted.  

And for double the fun, if you are a follower of my blog, old or new, please comment a second time letting me know how you follow me!

Remember I must have a way to contact you, either by email or from your profile.  Check to see if you are a No Reply Blogger.  If I cannot contact you, I will choose another winner. The giveaway will close on September 14th.

Happy Quilting!

Great goodies!
I live in Logansport, LA south of Shreveport right on the Texas border. The Sabine River separates us from Texas.
Yesterday there were 2 earthquakes about 15 mi. from here, and we were sitting here watching TV when my husband saw the big mirror hanging over the couch moving. I looked up, and it was!
One was 4.1, and the other one was 4.3. Sort of crazy, but these have been happening about a year now.
Just wanted to share that little tidbit about where I live.
It's also been VERY hot!
