It's Elementary! Giveaway Day!

 
It's Elementary...
math,
reading,
the alphabet...
 
 
I don't know about where you live,
 but we
are 2 weeks away
 from school starting.
 
So not ready for that.
 
 
This Elementary fabric
 is by Sweetwater. 
 
They always have such
 great text prints.
 
 
 
 
There are precuts
 in the shop.
 
 
It's never too early to make
 a teacher gift :)  haha
(I can't think about that.)
 
I think my college girls would
 like these colors & prints.
 
 
 The giveaway today is an
Elementary 5 inch charm pack.
To enter the drawing, leave a comment about
what are you up to for the end of summer.

Update: Congrats to Andee!
You are the winner!
 
Random drawing Friday night.

  2. I'm in Africa, we have the end of Winter looming - Yay! I 'ate winter! (say that with an English accent). I'm waiting so impatiently for Summer.

    I have a quilt to bind, I have decided to self bind as I have quite a bit of fabric left over all around the quilt. That will be done this weekend.

    I adore this fabric, it really does it for me!!

  6. Thanks for the opportunity... I do love those text-y prints! We are going to try to suck up every last bit of sunshine these last few weeks- at the pool, the beach, the zoo, and in the backyard. We'll pretend that idea doesn't delight the Mosquitos!

  25. I have adult children - so no 'back to school' adventures, but I loved those days and still love that 'new beginning' feeling. One of our children is a teacher and loves it - so we get to hear all the 'happenings' of her day.
    I am busy trying to 'catch-up' on baby quilts and a few wall hangings this summer.

  44. I'm thinking we need to hit the splash pad a few more times before it closes. School doesn't affect us much, since my kids are only two. But they will enjoy gatting some of their little friends backhoe that their older siblings will be going to school. :)

Have 2 queen sized quilt tops nearly finished from the scraps, need to decide on borders. One will have pieced scrappy borders, I think, the other solid fabrics. There's at least one more queen sized quilt top coming out of those boxes yet this summer, and maybe even two. Love the fabrics! Thanks for the chance to win.
