Update: Congrats to #103 Alexis!
You're the winner!!
It's the end

of the summer for us.

My daughter made it home &

heads to college

today,

and school starts next week.

Last night was sweet.

Just a simple night in the backyard

with some happy screaming.
Of course, at our house,

you can find a snow sled,

lying on the grass

to use as a shield.
The water balloons made me think

of this charm pack,

so that's our giveaway.
It's a collection of the cutest, happiest prints with a

Japanese-Hawaiian flavor.

There are mermaids, Happy Food people

including donuts,& ice cream, pineapples

& Miss Coconut drink

and so much more.


They make me smile.

It's our Rainbow Pack in 5" or 10" squares on etsy.

I have yardage of all of these & more, they just aren't on the site yet.

If you'd like any, contact me.

To enter the drawing for a 5" or 10" pack,

  2. My favorite summer memory is sleeping in the "old red barn" (a smallish out-building that had been turned into a guest house). I felt like Laura Ingalls... and oh, so grown-up!

  4. I need to know what kind of iron you found that did not have AUTO-OFF! I realllllly dislike AUTO-OFF and the lock that my washing machine has on it. For all these years I have never fallen in my washing machine - I do not need a safety lock on it. :(

  5. Summer is coming to and end! too quickly!
    ah! they're so cute those Japanese dollies! I think my favourite summer memory from this summer will be to watching my 2 year old girl, Hana, with her "best fend' Nell, sitting in the garden and stuffing themselves with fresh peas, even feeding Nell's dog... Long summer evenings...they'll be missed! the weather is changing here already. Thanks for the chance!

  19. My favorite summer memory is sitting in the back yard as the sun goes down talking with my husband, son(18) and daughter (20) about their lives. It doesn't happen often to get every one together, and doesn't happen often to get the kids really Talking! Love those times!

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's a hard question to answer - probably camping with my family when I was a child, listening to the ocean & grilling burgers & hot dogs - those were the days! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I just had a summer I'll never forget. I was off work after having baby #2. We spent summer days snuggling with baby Henry, going to the zoo with big sister, and spending long weekends at the lake. It was perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  22. My favorite summer memory is vague, but it involves my cousins from Pennsylvania visiting. We had a delightful evening catching "lightning bugs" (aka fireflies) and putting them in jars to make lamps. Times were peaceful and there was nothing to fear except missing out on dessert.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My sweetest summer vacation memory was going to the East Coast... seafood, camping, hiking, ocean toe dipping... it was a most memorable holiday!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. When I was a kid my grandparents had a "camp" on a nearby river. It was not fancy, but I loved staying there with my grandparents and various cousins. We would spend the days canoeing and swimming and having outdoor adventures.

    ReplyDelete
  25. All my favorite summer memories revolve around the beach. It was, and still is, our local playground/park. Teaching my children to make drip castles, watching them play in the shorebreak as little ones, and watching them surf when they were older.
    Thanks for the giveaway--such beautiful fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, golly, there are so many! Going to the beach with our big floppy hats, camping in the rain (every year, my Dad had a gift), my very first kiss (with a boy I met out of state, swoon!).

    ReplyDelete
  33. The pony man! Every summer, when we were very young (like, 3-8 y.o. maybe)the pony man would bring his pony to our street, and just set up in the middle of the street. Someone would set up big yellow wooden police barriers, and the kids lined up, paid some small amount, and rode the ponies round the little ring. Whoa, Nellie!

    ReplyDelete
  34. OH, that's and easy one...my favorite summer memory is of playing hide and seek growing up on our one acre of ground, lots of hiding spots, 24 pear trees, 8 apple trees, 6 cherry trees and 2 peach trees. Then, best of all, when the 16 long rows of corn were up, we could hide in there too. But me...I usually went into the chicken coop. Most of the the time my parents joined in the fun. Great memories. Thanks so much for a chance at these cheerful quilting treasures. Hugs...

Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to relive old memories :D

    ReplyDelete
  55. Summertime: when one can lay in the sun (wearing sunscreen, of course) with a delicious book and a mint-flavored ice tea. Guess that memory is from a few years ago because this summer was mostly too bloomin' hot to be outside without the fear of heatstroke! Thanks for this nice giveaway of some super-looking fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  56. The first thing that popped into my head was the summer I was 11. We lived in an apartment complex with a pool. I'd never had access to a real "in the ground" pool, and I lived there all day every day, that whole summer.

    Love this giveaway! Those fabrics are so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Fun fabrics :)
    My favorite summer memories are the summer nights sitting on the roof of our 2-story home, watching the stars. Something so peaceful about summer nights - fireflies, crickets, nice breezes. Lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  58. My favorite summer memories would be when my cousins and I were little and we would be at my grandma's for a barbeque. We would each get our own little pack of campfire marshmellows. I think they came in a little box. Maybe 8 of them. Imagine having 8 marshmellows to roast just for you! Then we would get jars with holes punched in the lids and catch lighning bugs. They would light the night up until it was time to go home. Then take the lid off and watch them all fly up into the night. Great times.

  59. My favorite memory of this summer is Ms. E learning to kick a ball. It was so funny and sweet. Now she doesn't want to do anything but kick her ball, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  64. When I was a child my family would drive to Sacramento (from Portland) to visit relatives or they would visit us. We would visit the Oregon Coast, Mt Hood, or British Columbia when they visited us. On the flip side, we would visit San Francisco, Los Angeles (Disneyland), etc. Fun times.

    ReplyDelete
  91. We've had lots of great moments this Summer ~ one of my favorites is sitting on the beach by our campsite and the sand was too hot to walk on. So we parked ourselves in the shade, a ways from the water. So we didn't have to worry about our one-year old taking a dive for the water because every time he attempted the sand, he came back whimpering because it was too hot. Better than a playpen!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Camping as a kid with my family. Sleeping in our swim suits and jumping into the lake first thing in the morning.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Favorite summer memory was the summer we camped at Garner State park and it flooded -- best tubing (on the river) time ever! LOL. :-)

    Actually, I have many favorite summer memories. The summer we camped on the beach at Galveston -- exactly one week before they closed it down to beach campers among onther things. Trips to Astroworld (no longer existing amusement park).

    ReplyDelete
  99. That fabric is so cute! It reminds me of a trip my hubby and I made to Hawaii. Because of its closeness to Japan, there are a lot of Japanese newlyweds on the beaches for their honeymoon. Favorite summer memories would be playing hide-n-seek till after dark and then catching fireflies in jars. Such a simple life, being a child.

    ReplyDelete
  100. A favorite memory for me is on the spur of the moment, Mom and a friend would pack up whatever food they could find for a picnic and then heading to a park where we could swim and play. Then in the evening, our Dad's would meet us after work and we would stay at the park until it closed for the night. Thanks for the great fabric giveaway.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  107. Going to the farm of my great uncle and auntie for the summer and watching them quilt, and picking strawberries, they were fun for this big city girl.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Lots of happy summer times!!! One of the best - in 2006 when we had a double wedding reception for 2 of our daughters in our yard. The day was perfect!! Thanks for another sweet give away.

    ReplyDelete
  109. My best summer memory was getting to take a family vacation with our kids and grandkids plus one. We have a 4 yr. old foster child, and he got to go with us.
    We found out today that he will be here for Christmas and possibly to be adopted into our family!

    ReplyDelete
  110. My best Summer memory is from when I was a little girl, my Dad would mow the grass with a push mower, rake it into a mound and I would jump around in it. :) Used to get as itchy as can be later though!
    I still love the smell of fresh mown grass! :)

    ReplyDelete
  111. My favorite summer memory was holding beauty pageants in the front yard of Christie Harris' house. (The one house on the block where you could pretty much do anything and the mom just smiled.) We would make the one little boy be the host and use the hose to outline a runway. Cars driving by would honk for us. We let a different girl win every day. It was silly fun.

  112. My favorite summer memory... Would have to be the bed sheet hammocks that my grandmother helped me and my sister make when we spent time at her house. We'd be lulled to sleep and snooze the afternoon away in those things.

  114. My favorite Summer memory is staying late (9 p.m.) at the pool so my son could see the underwater lights. He was so delighted I'll never forget it.

    ReplyDelete
  115. How cute! Those fabric selections are adorable.

    One of my favorite summer memories is visiting my grandfather's house. He always had junk everywhere...but there was never a lack of things to do. He had these large blow up tubes that you could climb on and jump. We would also swim in the creek behind his house and hunt for crayfish. I remember enjoying our visits there...which usually ended with the gift of a whole dollar each! =)

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  116. It's been a pretty quiet summer for us, it's just been SO hot. I would have to say my favorite memory is when we brought home a 10' round cheap-o snapset pool for our 3 year old to play in and my older two boys and about 5 of the neighbor kids all jumped in to play. We had so many kids squeezed into this tiny little pool trying to keep cool, it was such a sight. They had a blast though!

    ReplyDelete
  117. My favorite summer memory is taking my sweet granddaughter swimming and out on the pontoon here on our lake!!

  119. Ah...seeing your children with the hose...Ha-ha
    one (we make many) of my favorite summer-time memories is, working in the yard with the children & then when we are done & I am 'cleaning; up...Momma uses that hose & no one comes in "DRY"!
    Oh my word I love to get my children & they scream & carry on....& we laugh & laugh.
    Love the Hawaiian theme as we are doing my Dad's 80th Birthday in November in that theme for him for his love of his time being station there in Pearl Harbor :) He has been back once to visit!
    As summer see's it's final chapter coming lets all be glad that we have these fun memories to share!
    Blessings~
    Thanks for yet ----another wonderful give-away!
