A great giveaway and my bright quilt

Sheree of Sheree's Alchemy is hosting a great giveaway on her blog. She's got a huge box of Amy Butler scraps and a cute Amy Butler pattern. Comments close today, so you better hurry! I read Sheree at Bloglines, but I somehow missed her giveway post last week. Bloglines is a little undependable sometimes. Good luck to everyone that commented though!

I laid out my fabrics for the Roundabout quilt from the quilt-along. I knew the fabrics were bright, but wow. It's starting to grow on me. The more I look at it, the more I like it.

Fabrics for Roundabout Quilt

Well, the turq, red, and yellow didn't work out. Time for plan "B". I looked within my stash and then added a couple of fabrics from the sale section at my local quilting store. There's a Halloween print in here, but it doesn't have any pumpkins on it, so I think I'm good.

I'm going to make my quilt a bit smaller, so I only needed 30 12x12" blocks. Here they are. I'm ready to go!

Roundabout Quilt-Along thoughts

I can't decide on fabrics for the quilt-along! I've bought some fabrics recently, but my quilting stash is still pretty small. I also have apprehensions about cutting into some of my fabrics. Maybe I'll buy new fabrics just for this project. Here's the color scheme I'm thinking about. It's turquoise, red and yellow. I have nothing to go with it, I just like it.

Great Giveaways!

I entered two giveaways this morning. Be sure to check them out!

An Amy Butler Frechy Bag kit (pattern and fabric) at The Fabric Shopper!

The other is at Bitty Bits & Pieces. Kim is giving away two packages of Texture Magic. See more at the Superior Threads website.

Check these out for some chances at some great stuff!
