The Cure for February

Do y'all ever get the mid winter blues? I am all about sunshine and good weather and when the gray skies stay constant and the weather makes me not want to leave the house I start longing for spring! I've been loving that the past couple days at my house have been full of sunshine and the temps are going to be in the low 70s this weekend, which is pretty crazy for the Midwest. Sadly, I am sure it won't last and we will be back to more dreary days before the sunshine and spring weather comes to stay. Blah!


Some good news though-
My blogger's choice bundle for the Fat Quarter Shop is in stock!! YAY! I just got my bundle this week and was so pleased with the way the colors came together... they are sure to brighten the dreariest of days! I can't wait to make something with these beauties!

So who could use a little pick me up, until Spring is here to stay? A little giveaway never fails to help brighten those dreary February days right???Since this little bundle brought some sunshine to my sewing room and a smile to my face, I thought it would be fun to do the same for someone else. 

My friends at the Fat Quarter Shop are always in for a fun giveaway! They are going to send one lucky reader a fat quarter stack of my blogger' choice bundle.


THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

So just leave a comment 
{with your email, so I can contact you if you win}
and let me know what you would make with this bundle. 

I will choose one winner at random next Thurs. February 25 and notify them by email.

The winner is: 

Well after I stare at them for a while (a stunning bundle I must say), I think they would compliment a mid-century modern quilt I've been conceptualizing for a while - thanks for the chance!
Have a great weekend! 
xoxo, Ashley

  12. I LOVE this bundle. I saw it on instagram and went to FQS right away to check it out. I would definitely make a quilt. I love that the fabric isn't from the same line, but that it's coordinated. I'd never put them together, but I adore the combination. I don't have a knack for putting fabric together myself unfortunately so I love the idea of the blogger bundles! carlidwhitehead@gmail.com
