Today we are doing a giveaway, with a small twist...
The winner will get these lovely scraps from the Mendocino line by Heather Ross. I think there are about 35 rectangles (about 1/2 of which are HR and 1/2 the blender fabrics). I am currently working on a quilt for my 8 yr old using these fabrics. When I went to buy the backing I found the fabric listed on etsy for... get this...$40 a yard!!!! What?! Don't even get me started on how ridiculous I think this is! I quickly decided on a beautiful non $40/yd print. But I digress...
Here is the twist: To enter you must commit to helping us with our Zihuatanejo Bag Project for Project Million Amigos. We don't care if you can only do one bag or 50, we just want you to help. If you still want to win the scraps tell us in the comments section how many bags you will make. Make sure you leave your email or some way for us to contact you. We will draw a winner on Friday. And if there happens to be a large enough response I might be willing to give up my eight Heather Bailey Pop Garden fat quarters as well.
Now we know that there is no way we can check to make sure everyone actually makes their bags, but we believe that you all will be honest enough to commit only if you are serious and not just to win. Good Luck!
