Vintage Sheet Fat Quarter & Pattern Giveaway! WINNER Announced!

Update: SUCH generous souls!! Two sets of 5 it is!!
Trisha and Ruth B
Congratulations~Love girls with email addresses!

Happy Thursday!

For today's giveaway, I'm sharing a few of my vintage-y sheet fat quarters. In fact TEN of them! I just haven't decided whether I'm going to give all ten to ONE person or split them up and give 5 to you and 5 to another.

What do you think?

I think that should be your comment!

Are you greedy? Do you want all 10?

Or are you a ......share the love, share the joy, share the fat quarters kind of gal?


Everyone's a winner today because I'm offering up this little pattern/tutorial, too.

It's a large file.....give it time.

If you still experience problems.....once you're in adobe reader,

click: file

Click: Save As ________(give it a name)

and then save to your desktop.

It should have it all to your desktop and then you can try opening it from there.


I know it's not original or earth shattering or even extra special. But we have enough quilting/piecing newbies that I wanted to try and spell out the inner workings of a triangle square. Easy cheesy.

Grab a great fabric like this and go. to. town.
I want you to know that I spent 32 seconds coming up with this name:
Cinderella: A Rags to Riches Quilt
Get it rags =(old sheets) to riches= (Beautiful finished quilt!!)

I was considering:
Sheets with a Story

and then I thought,
"Ew. That's probably not a story we'd want to be telling."

I love this book cover AND I love a brunette Cinderella.

Just wanted you to know.

I thought you might care.


If you feel the need to create this and need some sheets......
I've got a few sets in my store.


Boy, this post is all over the place. Thanks for hanging in there today.

  6. hi- first visit to your blog. Thanks for such a great site and for a giveaway as an introduction! The tutorial is great and will come in handy for a beginner like me. I would be thrilled with 5 FQ of your cool vintage sheets - but of course even more psyched with 10. So whatever you decide works for me...

    ReplyDelete
  7. I am greedy and would love them all but in the same breath, I know how fun it is to win a giveaway and to make one more person happy would be awesome...so split them up....if you want. They are beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yay for brunette Cinderellas! =D

    And I think it should be split up. Spread more happy that way =)

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  9. Two winners, share the joy. More people making Cinderella quilts = all good.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Pretty, pretty...I'd say share, the more the merrier.
    Thanks for sharing your stash with us.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh my gosh, I think I had most of those sheets on my bed growing up. (not all at one time...you know what I mean!) Does that make me vintage?!? I say split them up and share the love!!

  12. I'll share....but not because I'm so unselfish. If you split them up, there are two chances for me to win, so I have a little better odds. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I would share, so enter me, please.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Split them up, two people can have a fabulous surprise!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Five would be fine with me, but ten would be even better! Thanks for the chance for either one.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well, the selfish me says all 10 please, but the more sensible side of me says sharing is nicer.
    Pretty fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I say 5 and 5! Share the love! Double the fun! All of that good stuff. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Even though I am by nature a greedy person and would really love to have them all, I do realize that that isn't fair, so I will be generous just this once and say "split 'em up!" after all, that gives me double the chances to win!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would love to share these with someone else! THanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I would say share! But oh, what I could do with ten! :)

  22. I vote for sharing - but you've already been so geenrous with the terrific pattern/tutorial, thank you so much! Blogland, thanks to all you lovely quilters out there, is an amazing resource that our mothers and grandmothers never had.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I agree...split them up! More chances to win! Thank you for the tutorial, great for a beginner (me).

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh I am pretty selfish and I want them all but if you decide to split them up I can live with that too because I have none so 5 is still way better.
    Thanks for giving ANY at all.

  25. I say share the love. Thank you for the tutorial. I love the name. By the way my word verification is oxichic. I think that is a great new word. I am going to have to find a way to use it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a cute quilt. I would share the fat quarters. When we were cleaning out my parents home, we found some really great vintage sheets, these would go great with those finds. Wouldn't you agree? Pick me, pick me. oohsaahsw@aol.com

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'd vote for sharing the love too. Love the "rags to riches" name! Also, I noticed that you're missing the picture of the finished quilt - maybe blogger has a bug? ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Last week I poked through the local goodwill for some vintage sheets and started a quilt--these would make a great addition! And although I would love to have them ALL for myself, I was taught in church it's better to share. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Split them up! More chances to win! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I say share the wealth! Two winners are better than one :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. My selfish inner half is telling me to type 10, but the unselfish part of me is telling me that if we split them, that 2 of us would get some! So I'm thinking split them! Either way, they are absouletly gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  32. You are sitting at your computer just chuckling watching our little greedy yet giving selves check our moral compass. I am definitely all about sharing love and fun but those are delish and make me covet them all. But hopefully my true self prevails and I say split them up.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I want them all and I'll admit it! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I say one winner!! That one if I win I can give half to my momma. Oh, she'd be sooo thrilled!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Love your pattern, especially the name and the use of vintage sheets. I'm pretty greedy so I want all 10, but to inrease the chance of winning, split them in two!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am a very generous person, until it comes to FABRIC!!! I want them all....(but will certainly be satisfied with half if so be it)...

    ReplyDelete
  37. oh, my!! i always thought i was a generous person, until it came to having to share fabric!! i'll be honest and say my first thought after seeing those wonderful vintagey sheets, is- i want them ALL!! isn't that horrible of me!! ugggh, you've brought out the worst in me!! :)

  40. Oooo, I LOVE the Cinderella picture! Very unique! I think I could share. . . but I might regret it later! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Split the lot; goodies for more!
    I love that pink print fabric, too.
    So yummy~

    ReplyDelete
  42. Although I'd LOVE all 10, I believe in sharing the wealth, so I'd be up for splitting. But, since I never win... :( it won't really matter.

    ReplyDelete
  43. deep down I want them all to myself, but rationally, I know I have a better chance to get any if they were split, lol.

    Thanks for the Rags to Riches Quilt pattern! I am planning to go thrifting today!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am also a sharing kind of girl. The more the merrier!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Sharing would be nice. I've never had any vintage sheets before. They look gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think they should be split up...like a stimulus to aid the quilty community.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'll say share. That's what quilters seem to be really good at. Very generous souls they are.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Are you kidding me? I want them all! Just being perfectly honest. I know that my chances would increase with 2 winners though. ;)
    Oh, and you could've called it "between the sheets"... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I think you should split the proize, two chances to win are better than one, for those of us that are greedy.

  50. Split them up! 5 for me, 5 for someone else....

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm all for sharing the love! I only have 1 actual vintage sheet in my inventory and I couldn't cut into that thing to save my live. It's from my childhood. And the Cinderella title is much better I agree. Have fun today!

    ReplyDelete
  52. of course I will say, I love them and want them all. don't share, just how I am.

    ReplyDelete
  53. If I were feeling mean and greedy I'd say 'I want 'em all for me', but it's spring, the sun is out, there's a brunette cinderella smiling at m - I'm in a sharing kind of mood!!!

    Love the rags to riches quilt, it's beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh, definitely have two winners! It's more fun when more people win. Especially for such a fun giveaway! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  55. greedily I'd really want all of them, but I would share...just to be nice. ;-) (As long as I got the one on the very very top to the right with the pink and mustard goldy colored flowers!
    he he)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am a share kind of gal! I too love the brunette Cindy....

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh, I can hear my mom now..."stingy-britches"...I hated sharing! So of course, I want it all!! But the guilt gets me every time soooo ok...I'll share...

    ReplyDelete
  58. I say split them so two people can win! Love the book cover too! Thanks for the tute.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Today I'm going to say go greedy, but that's just because I can't find any cool vintage sheets. Normally I would be a share the love girl.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I think it would be GREAT to share with several winners.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Des, love the title of Cinderella, just right.
    I would have to say share the sheets, there are so many quilters out here in blogland.
    I'll post about it on my sidebar.

  62. Umm.. if you pull my name, I'll take all 10. But if you pull someone else's name, I think it should be split up so I have another chance! :) Funny that I teach my daughters to share all day but I can't seem to follow through myself.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I would be willing to share if only I could win. Linda Gerig

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would say give them all to 1 if I knew I was the one... but multiple winners increases my chances of getting atleast one cute quarter... that's a toughy! Either way, very generous!

  65. I think you should share the love! TWO winners! WooHoo!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I say split them up! They are so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Sorry, I am greedy and would like all of the fat quarters. I am always looking for new ideas. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Make quilts not war, man. It's all about love and peace so I think it'd be groovy (in a far out kind of way) to split the lot up. Dig what I'm laying down, cats? Rock on and stuff. Oh, and that chic Cinderella, she does look groovy with dark hair.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I would be thrilled to have all ten, but I would also be estatic with 5 for me and 5 for someone else. Either way, if sure would be fun to win!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love it all! all over the place. yes, I do want 10, but I'd settle for 5. (It's hard to share when it come to chocolate chip cookies and fabric!)I've been looking for those sheets at goodwill because I'd like to make the mod quilt sampler at ohfransson. Have you seen her site? Thanks for the freebie.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Nice! I would love to win either 10 or 5. both would make me happy, because it's free..I'm feeling nice today so 2 winners!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'd say split 'em or give fat eighths so all ten could be sampled by the winners. thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I have no problem sharing 5 and winning 5 at all. Thank-you-very-much. :-)

  74. I would love to win them all but I think you should split them up and share the love.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh I want them ALL! But, I really do think you should split them up, more fun for more people that way.
    Love your Cinderella!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I think you should split them... even though I want them all

    ReplyDelete
  77. I would love to win all 10 but probably should split it up so two people can be happy!

  78. I say split them up...they are so pretty! spread the love among us vintage sheet lovers!

    ReplyDelete
  79. OOOOhh cool. I am a selfish greedy greedy person and want all of them for myself. However, any freebie is a great freebie, so if you split them up then I have a better chance of winning (again...GREEDY!! haha. so the main point of my comment is 5 fat quarters are better than no fat quarters, thanks for another great giveaway. I love this one, haven't seen anything like these :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. I say split them up. If there are two winners, I have better chances! :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. That first comment, Kim, talks about sharing with her sister -- what a sweet, charitable, swell thing to do. Or maybe that quilt is for me, I'll act surprised. I want the book!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Hmmm...five would be nice, but I'm not ashamed to say that ten would be better! Thanks for the pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I would be so happy to have just half. I would be double happy to have all 10. I have discovered the joy that is quilting with fat quarters.

  87. Thanks for the tutorial! You're right, I'm a newbie and had no idea what you were talking about with the triangles, so that little tutorial helped!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Greedy!! I want them all! Actually, I know someone who would love a snuggle up quilt out of them and I'd love to make it for her, so I'd be a Giving Gal too. The best of both!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Wow! They're pretty! I'm definitely Share the Love type of Gal.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Hope I made it here in time! I would love to get 1,5, or 10 - they are lovely! Everyone loves to win of course...I know I do. So however you decide to divide it up is great with me. Good luck everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Yes a bit like my quilt I posted today. Love yours. Cinderella is a perfect name for it. I love the fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  92. 93 comments? Oh my goodness....good luck with picking a winner. If it were me, I'd share the wealth with 2 or more people. There isn't anything like opening up a packie of nice fabrics.....
