So, a funny thing happened when I was cleaning out my fat quarter bin, I pulled out a stack of fabric I had rejected from previous projects and knew I would never use in future projects, and wondered, "would anyone else want this fabric?". I almost didn't even offer it up, truly, but I thought to myself, surely one person out there could use this fabric, it is nice quality fabric. No one is more surprised than me that 296 folks spoke up in the course of a couple of days saying they had a use for those fat quarters.
And no, you didn't need a blog to be considered, and yes, sending an email for the folks who were comment challenged was fine.
And the winner is #204, Betty, who said,
The giveaway post received 282 comments and I received 14 emails for a total of 296.
I'm so thankful for Random Number Generator, I could never select a favorite from the comments, I wish I had a box for each of you.
Funny aside, my blog posts average 700 hits, for some reason, this post had over 1100 hits. I"m not quite sure why this blog post had so many additional hits, but I do find it interesting that around 800 folks looked at that fabric and passed!
Here's the good news, I have some more cleaning to do and will have a few more boxes of fabric, but instead of posting it on my blog, I"ll just let Random Number Generator pick another winner from that post. So don't be surprised if you get a note sometime asking if you're interested in some fabric.
Speaking of fabric, my Fat Quarter Shop fat quarter bundle is available! Click here to check it out. I'm still waiting for my bundle and am on pins and needles with regards to how those reds play together. If you get your bundle before me drop me a note and let me know what you think.
Finally, I added a Flickr Link on the left hand side of my blog that is a nice little slide show of the blocks folks are making for Monique's Blogger Girls BOM. Those dancing robot heads are growing on me!
Enjoy your weekend, hope you get some sewing in, I'm planning to!
