May for Me Surprise Charming Giveaway!

Update:
This Giveaway has ended.

The 3rd May for Me Giveaway will be a Triple Charming Surprise!  --- 3 prizes for one winner!

#1 The winner will receive a colorful surprise assortment of 72 Charm Squares! Yes I said 72 charm squares --- not 42.

You can make a quilt that measures 36" x 40 1/2" - that is 8 charm rows across by 9 charm rows down.

#2 And the winner will receive surprise binding fabric!

#3 And the winner will receive surprise backing fabric!

There is NOT a photo of the surprise charms and surprise binding fabric and surprise backing fabric, because it is a surprise!  

I will ask the winner their favorite color and I will surprise the winner with a surprise assortment of 72 charm Squares including their favorite color if possible.  It will be the Quilter's Blenders Colors for the 72 charms squares.

I think that I would either incorporate the fabric into a bed quilt for me -- haven't made one for myself yet -- or use it to make a wall hanging for my bedroom. Thank you so much for the giveaway! Surprises are fun! sarah@forrussia.org

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

I am working on a green / purple / lavender shaded patchwork quilt for a little twin girl and next will be a quilt in the same shades for her sister...so if I won, I'd use the fabrics for that :) What a nice giveaway...I saw your button over at Kathy's Quilts :)

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

My little quilt guild makes lap and wheelchair quilts for veterans hospitals & nursing homes in our state. That would make a great wheelchair size, or, if I added fabrics, then it would make 2 wheelchair quilts for veterans. Thanks for the chance.

Lisa Marie said...

I would add fabric to it and make a scrappy lap quilt in a larger size to give as a Christmas gift. But I'd keep it to myself just who it was for.

Quilting Tangent said...

Sue Lee said...

I'm not sure where I'll use those squares. If it has a modern look, I'm sure one of my kids or grandson will love it..I have a couple of baby quilts due soon...or I might just make it for charity. My heart is a sucker for those NICU babies..or the kids at camp Kory, in carnation, washington..

Sue Lee said...

I just shared on my Facebook!

Unknown said...

I would add to it to make a picnic quilt for my middle daughter and her family. Nancy: rangerer@sbcglobal.net

Grandma Helen said...

Purple is my favorite color, with sage green as my second favorite. If the charm pack is purple, there is a new baby girl arriving in late June who needs a purple K-State quilt from grandma.

Janie said...

I would have to make a quillow out of this fabric, for a grandchild. My favorite color is orchid. I have 3 granddaughters, so it would go to one of them.

Mokki said...

I would probably add a few prints and lots of embroidery. I'd have to decide who'd like the finished quilt most, it's hard to decide who to give it to without seeing it.

Mom C said...

I have a niece getting married that I want to make a fun quilt for. I would add to what you send and make a nice lap size for her and her new hubby. Thanks.

Jen Barnard said...

I think I'd use the charm squares to make one of Carrie Nelson's schnibbles patterns to hang on my wall.

Kathy said...

I would make a quick lap blanket for my mom, who is 85 and still mows her own lawn. Then she relaxes in front of the TV at night and covers up with multiple blankets so you almost can't see her!! :)

Afquilt said...

I am hoping to make a baby quilt for a new niece or nephew!

nicolesender said...

I'd love to use the fabric in a lap quilt.

Jess said...

Favorite color is black. I'd say that I'd make a baby quilt, because that's what I've been doing lately (everybody is having babies!), but black isn't really a baby quilt color, so it would probably be a lap quilt and I would keep it. :)

allison pogany said...

I've been excited to try a bargello quilt, so lap quilt sized and all solids would be the way to start! Depending on colors, it would be for my son (and his stuffed dinosaur) or for a child at the emergency foster care facility near us.

Mhairi said...

I love your giveaways and the variety that you share!
I think if I won I would let my son try to make a quilt - he wants a new one to replace that one that is full of holes and he loves to sew on my machine. I might have to add a couple of print fabrics but I know he would love the chance to create a quilt for himself (he is 6)
