giveaway

Today I'm pleased to be hosting a little fabric giveaway, courtesy of Pat Bravo.
Up for grabs are two different bundles...(10 fat quarters each) in some of my favorite colors ever!
Aren't they so pretty? I know from experience that Art Gallery fabrics are super soft and great to work with!

If you would like to be in the drawing, please leave me a comment. One per person please. In your comment, I'd love to hear if you have any New Year's eve plans. Or else you can tell me something you are looking forward to next year. I'll plan to pick two winners on Monday.

I'd like to take the time to say a big THANK YOU to each and every one of you for reading my little blog, leaving such wonderful comments and for all your encouragement this past year. I appreciate it very, very much! xoxo

Hope you have a wonderful and safe New Year's!

A Happy and healthy 2012 to you too and thanks for sharing so much with us in your blog.
What a generous give away you have.
I will spend new years eve at home with my husband a our dog, who is very afraid of all the shooting.
For the new year I hope to find a little more time for quilting.

KristyMN said...

I would love that green bundle for the quilt for the master bedroom I have been meaning to start...greens and grays!

New Years Eve we always do the same thing. Since we have three small children, we stay home, play classic Nintendo games (NES!) and order pizza. Then we go to bed at 12:01. Ha. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

Leeanne said...

Thank you for the chance to win one of these yummy bundles.
I am looking forward to making a number of quilts for more of my nieces and Nephews in the New Year, I made one each for twins and now their older sister says she would love one.....so wild fire has spread in my family....no complaints from Me!!!

QuiltNut Creations said...

love these fabrics. for NYE, we are hosting a party, have 30 adults and kids coming, it's going to be crazy fun!

thanx for the chance.

little buddy said...

Your blog is so inspiring. I'm hoping to tackle many of your tutorials in 2012. We are spending New Years with old friends and their new baby!

Michele said...

OOOOHHHHHH! Lovely bundles.

I used to have one New Year's Eve rule...that I don't cook dinner, so we would go out even if it was only to a diner. But with the little ones now, we just stay home. Instead of dinner out, we get a bunch of munchies like mozzerrella sticks and potato sticks and stay up only as long as we are able. I know, not exciting, but when we rarely get a full night's sleep the "party" dies out early.

My mom, siblings and all their families will be here on New Year's Day to celebrate Christmas.

In the new year I look forward to finding the time to do a lot more sewing. I have so many projects in various stages and there has been little time to work on any of them. I hope I have a lot of things crossed off my To Do list before the next New Year's Eve,

michele (maryland) said...

Love your blog, you are such a great teacher. I have a couple of quilts to finish and a few to start! Happy New Year to you too!

New years eve at home.

DianeY said...

I gave up on big NYE celebrations a long time ago! Just can't stay up late any more!

Ann Marie @ 16 Muddy Feet said...

Our New Year's Eve plans consist of moving my daughter and her boyfriends furniture to their apartment (hopefully) and also some sewing. Haven't seen much of my machine during the month of December.

Sally said...

The fabrics have such great colours!! For NYE I am spending the night with my BF which is really great as we didn't get to spend Christmas together, now we get to bring in the new year together!!

M.McCafferty said...

oh yay! both bundles are so cute. I will be spending NYE with my Hubby and our new puppy, eating finger foods and watching movies!

Tong said...

I'm hosting a small party for our closest friends tomorrow night. Thanks for the giveaway and Happy New Year!

NYE is going to be mellow...but I'm looking forward to getting a Bernina in 2012!
Thanks for a chance at such a lovely giveaway!

Amy Friend said...

Oh, we will put the kids to bed and then I will sew, he will work in the barn. Nothing out of the ordinary!

Julierose said...

Hubby and I will be reviving an old French Canadian family recipe we just found in my Grand'mere's cookbook: making tourtiere (pork pies) for New Year's Eve celebration was de rigeur in our family. We will stay home and toast the New Year with some Merlot. Julierose

Moneik said...

We'll be at my dad's so hubby can hunt for deer. It'll probably be an early night as our baby still doesn't sleep through the night.
I'm looking forward to a new year and lots of sewing.

Dirt Road Quilter said...

Such yummy colors! New Year's Eve is hubby's birthday and our favorite thing to do is stay home. Splurging and making Prime Rib for supper thoug. It's also the last night with our Marine son before he delpoys so I'm going to stop time if I can.

Freddie said...

great giveaway.

We will be gourmetten (http://www.gourmetten.com/) a very Dutch thing I don't know what it's called in English. My daughters love it. We will be staying in as our dog may be afraid of fireworks. She is a puppy and it's her first new year, so don't know how she'll react.

Kirsten said...

Wow! What a giveaway! Tomorrow on new years eve I have been married to my hubby for 12 - TWELVE - years... and still in love... the very first thing my family is doing this new year is to travel. 01.01.2012 at 7 am our plane is leaving for Spain (Tenerife) and for a week we will enjoy a warm holiday... which we haven't been able to for some years - due to illness... oooooh we are exited... I will bring some knitting and stitchery... crazy for some, but my favorite activites... I'm hoping to blog our photos - as we are bringing no less than 5 cameras for a family of 4 lol...

Erin L said...

I'm going to spend New Year's Eve in the company of great friends...hopefully I can stay awake until midnight! These fabrics are lovely! Thank you for the giveaway!

Natasha said...

I plan on having a day as usual. I dont think I will be watching the ball drop.

Homeschool Mama said...

I am awaiting the arrival of my new-to-me sewing machine. So, my New Years Eve will be spent lining-up projects for my new machine. I will also be celebrating with my kiddos, toasting-in the new year with sparkling cider. My goals for 2012 are mainly to bust my stash, which is comprised of several fabrics given to me by people cleaning out their basements. It's fun to see what I can create out of things bought by people who never knew each other. I also plan to make a gameboard quilt with a friend. I could really use some greens for the twister board. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Katherine said...

NYE at home with my family - a time to reflect over the past year and plan for the new year.

Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year!

Thanks for your lovely giveaway. Those fabrics are gorgeous!

What beautiful fabric. I am spending New Year's Eve with my husband and daughter. A quiet evening with family is always tops in my books.

Prof. S said...

Oooo, lovely! Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway.

In the new year I am looking forward to challenging myself creatively. My work is already (always) challenging, but I think I'm ready to venture into some new terrain in my sewing...more complicated FMQing, more original piecing...I'm ready to try new things!

Alisa said...

We're staying home! I know it sounds boring, but we always have fun and it's much more safe and much less stressful. Thank you for the wonderful give away chance. Happy New Year!

Suzan said...

Lovely fabric! Our little town celebrates its 250th anniversary in 2012 so we are going to the town festivities that include food, music and fireworks. It's going to be cold but it will still be fun!!

Thanks for hosting such a nice giveaway. I always look forward to reading your blog and seeing your projects!

Happy new year!

Christie, Describe Happy said...

New Year's eve will be much quieter than last year when we invited the parents over and ripped down the wall between the kitchen and dining room. This year I think we will be happy with a full on wii monopoly showdown and something bubbly to drink. Happy New Year and my fingers are crossed that the green stack jumps it's way over to me :)

Chase said...

On our New year days, I plan to start my new quilt blocks and maybe make some pancakes. For the incoming year, I am very looking forward to be more {focus} on each projects that I created! Thank you for all the great inspirations that you have shared! I enjoy reading all your posts and project!

No pans for New Years. This year I am looking forward to a cross country road trip with the family.

BeckyWise. said...

These fabrics are absolutely adorable! I love the colour and patterns! For new years I will be spending time with the family and just having a good time.

For my new years resolution I have promised myself to do atleast 52projects like making gifts,etc and try 50 new things! Gosh, I shouldn't have promised that :').
Have a wonderful new year and carry on with your gorgeous blog!

Lee said...

New Year's Eve around our house is generally pretty quiet. Or at least we hope it will be because now that fireworks are legal in Arizona, we get a bit more noisy and the dogs go a bit more crazy.

I wish for you continued success next year and I will continue to look forward to your new posts.

Jennifer said...

Such pretty fabrics!
We celebrate New Years with another family that we are close with. Play games, eat yummy food, watch the ball drop,then have a giant slumber party! Lots of fun!

FrancisMoore said...

I don't have plans for New Years Day. Maybe I will sew some of the dresses that I make for charity. Love the fabrics.

ktquilts said...

For New Year's Eve, we are spending time with family during the day. Then we have a party (family style) in the evening with friends.

This year I am hoping to become better at resting,nespecially in Christ. It should be quite a challenge for me!!

New Year blessings.

Wouldn't want it any other way.

Kim said...

I have become a fabric JUNKIE! Everyday I buy something for all the future projects I have planned. Got my first sewing machine for Christmas, I had been using my moms and just got hooked on all the things I can do with it.

Ritapizza said...

These fabrics are beautiful! Congrats on a wonderful year for you and have a Happy 2012! I'll be snuggling by my Christmas tree with my love on New Years eve :)

Mom C said...

I think we're going swimming.haven't done that for new year's before. Our town opened an aquatic center with kids play area, lazy river, hydro tube , hot tub and regualr lap pool and we are invited to a private party there. Should be lots of wet fun and it'll only last til 9 so the grownup can still party after.
Love the fabric. Thanks.

Suzanne said...

We're welcoming in the new year with a few friends playing games together!
Wonderful giveaway!

Linda said...

Love the pretty fabrics in your Giveaway. Staying in for NYE as it's the time of my chemo cycle when I have to avoid crowds in case of infection. My husband will pop out for an hour to celebrate our friends's son's 18th birthday. Here's to a healthier 2012

Caty said...

Yay! Those bundles are gorgeous!

Plans for our New Year...after 8 years of living away from our hometown we're finally making the big move back! I'm a little nervous thinking about everything that has to get done, but I can't wait!!!

Thank you for everything that you share on your blog! I truly love to read what you post! :-)

We are staying in. Splurging on NYE with caviar, champagne, lobster, garlic butter, fresh baguette..yum. I love it. Plus I am working on a quilt for our bed.

Those are some great fresh spring colors!

Goddess in Progress said...

Thanks for the giveaway, Amanda Jean!

I have a sort-of tradition of making Mexican food on New Year's Eve, so we'll probably do nachos and tacos and that sort of thing.

Truth: I'll most likely be passed out cold by 10PM. 9PM if I make margaritas. :-)

Happy New Year!

Just Jillbean said...

I'll be spending New Years Eve in a hot tub with a glass of champagne :) Can't wait!

Loooove those colors!!

Sadly, I think this New Year's Eve is going to find me taking care of my 4 sick little ones :( Thanks for the giveaway!!

pipp5 said...

Those fabrics are soooo pretty, especially love the greens! Don't know what we're doing for NYE yet. Maybe go see the new Sherlock Holmes movie. Looking forward to a good friend teaching me to knit in 2012 and of course getting to some of those quilting projects on my bucket list!

Tiffany said...

What gorgeous fabric!
New years eve we are having Christmas number 2! My SIL and her family are coming down and visiting for the weekend. Will be nice to visit and relax with them!

Jezibels ~ sproutbabysprout.blogspot.com said...

Happy New Year Amanda, I want to also thank you for your wonderful blog, whenever I get the bug to make something I always check to see what your up to for inspiration! Thanks for being there and inspiring us!

New Year plan is to stay home and off the roads, have a little party with a few simple hordevours (cucumber slice, cream cheese, chives on a crispy cracker) and maybe some bacom wrapped chestnuts.

The Eberlys said...

Love the green colored bundle! Our son was born 3 months early - weighed 1 pound 13 oz - last Nov. I wanted to make him a quilt during my pregnancy, but with his early arrival, and the 99 days in the NICU, plus all the doctor's appointment this past year I have not had the time to make a quilt. Hopefully, this next year I can get one done. Our son, Jackson, is doing great. He is a whopping 18 pounds now and so precious. Would love the green bundle -- those are the perfect colors for his room decor. Love your quilts and blog! Happy New Year, too!

Becky said...

Love those colors! I think i will be sleeping on new years eve! I am also excited for all the fun quilts that i get to make next year!
Thanks!

Kristine Hanson said...

lovely FQ's! I am looking forward to getting more things done around my house this new year...changing out old doors for new doors...maybe new carpet? Repainting a bathroom, fun stuff!

Not being party animals on New Year's Eve, we've volunteered to babysit for family & friends. Presently we have three kids all under the age of three. It will be an interesting evening & next morning since all are spending the night. Thanks for the opportunity to be part of your giveaway. I really like both color groups.

What a lovely giveaway. There is so much as I reflect one this past year that I'm looking forward to next year. I'm pondering what I'll be doing with my bloggy/quilty world. Fun times.

Joy @ Light Bulbs said...

Both great colors! This new years I am planning on doing what I always do...eat some good food then head to bed early...we have 9am church.
I am looking forward to my hubby coming home safe to me from deployment...he has only been gone a month but it seems like forever. Only five more months to go. Thank goodness I have quilting to keep me happy.

anne said...

Thank you for sharing your life with us all in blog land. I love to read what you are making and get inspired. I sure want to make your Apple Cake Quilt as I see it as a very portable project.

Anyway, in 2012 my family has a lot of milestones, 2 people turn 50. We have a 50th wedding anniversary and my daughter turns 21....wow we sure are going to have a busy year.

Happy New Year to you and your family, may you enjoy and stay safe.

Julie said...

Those are both really sweet assortments- just what I'm looking for to make quilts for two girl babies on their way in the spring.

KellyS said...

Beautiful bundles! I don't think we are doing anything this year for New Years. Both of my boys are sick, along with hubby and myself. I am looking forward to my first bee this next year, I joined up with my modern quilt guild. I can't wait to learn new blocks and to get to know my guild members better!

Diane N said...

Thanks for the awesome giveaway. We plan to ring in the new year at a party at a friend's house. It's always nice spending time with friends! Happy New Year!

Claire said...

EEEEKK!! I love the fabrics and such great colors too!
I plan on hanging out with my friends for New Years Eve...nothing to crazy though.
I'm also looking to forward to the new year as a fresh start in my life, just can't wait to see what it brings to me...I'm just so excited I want to shout it to the world.

Have Happy New Year and thanks for the great give away offer!

Ruth said...

Spending New Year's Eve with friends. As for next year, I am looking forward to carving out more time to be creative, which includes finishing some quilt projects currently underway. I love both of the bundles, though I am especially drawn to the pink.

Lindsay Conner said...

Well, I feel like I am still recovering from the holidays, so I haven't thought much about New Year's Eve. But I typically celebrate pretty low-key with a few friends. Cheers!

Amiechan said...

It's just me, my husband, our two year old son and my husbands (and mine nowadays) friend that will celebrate together. We will play games together and eat a nice meal. :)

manybooks said...

Happy New Year to you! My husband is working so I'm having a couple friends over to stitch and watch movies for NYE.

foodmathquilts said...

We don't have any new years plans(yet) but I'm looking forward to organizing and playing with some new fabric before I get back to teaching on jan 8th.

I Quilt for Fun said...

Lovely yummy fabrics! We are sacrificing our new years eve plans to spend 10 hours in the car tomorrow driving back from our son's where we have been lucky enough to spend two days babysitting our only grandchild. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

I'll spend some of the car time dreaming of my 2012 plans for quilting now that I am retired.

Thanks for all YOU do in the blogging world.

My husband and I just like to stay home on New Year's Eve. Too many crazy people out driving when they shouldn't be so we like to spend time together at home. Thanks for the giveaway. Very pretty fabric. I enjoy your blog and seeing all of your beautiful quilts.

Rebecca Kennedy said...

We go to a "Deep Fried Paradise" party every year. We're always looking for new and inventive things to deep fry each year. No hangover the next day, but lots of Tums!

audrey said...

I'm working on NYE from 7a-9p so not too much time left for partying. I'll be too tired to do anything. As for the the new year, I'm hoping to finish up as many UFOs as I can. I started a public challenge on my blog, hoping to get a bunch done!

Anne said...

I usually sit by the windown and wait until my children are safely home on NYE. This year however, we are going to Baltimore to meet up with old high school friends. It has been over 20 yrs since we saw them. Thanks for the fabric giveaway!

Yumm yumz by patticakes said...

Since my New Year's resolutions have a way of falling by the wayside, I have given myself a more concrete goal this year:
Instead of saying I will "get in shape", I am going to train for a 5K Race in May - hopefully, that will give me the added motivation to follow through!

Barb said...

Quiet night at home with my husband on New Year's Eve. I am looking forward to the coming year watching my granddaughter grow (7 mo.), sewing for her and getting chickens in the spring to entertain her ;)

Kata said...

I will spend NYE at home with family (Hubby, kids 2x3,5 and 6months) and hope to get some sleep too...
Lovely giveaway, thanks and fingers crossed!

I enjoy your blog very much and look foward to all of your creative ideas and just barely keeping up with you. You have a lot of energy. Good for you. My husband and myself will be enjoying a crab salad with french bread for dinner. I will enjoy a glass of Arbour Mist Strawberry White Zin and he will enjoy 2 beers. Will eat and be merry and watch tv. It's safe and we can't get into any trouble. Your giveway will make a wonderful quilt for welcoming 2012. Thank you and Happy New Year.

Those are some seriously pretty bundles! I've always been a sucker for pink and green. Our plans are simple, stay home. We have 4 kids and finding child care isn't always so easy. Especially late night child care!

lorena said...

Super giveaway! Our plans are to have a low key night so we can get up early on New Year's day to go skiing! Happy New Year to you! :)

liz said...

Movies at home for New Year's - dh's back is out.... :(

emilysigler said...

Green is my favorite color! But pink is great, too.

I'm planning to move the clocks back 3 hours so my kids (11, 10, 8, & 6) can celebrate and then go to bed at 9!

love the blog!

Monica said...

Thanks for doing a giveaway! No New Years plans do to having a newborn. Looking forward to getting in shape, losing this baby weight and having more time to quilt in 2012!

Debra said...

I plan on spending New Year's Eve with my little grandson, while his parents enjoy a party. I think I'm the one with better plans!

Janine said...

My husband & I are spending it quietly, at home. Maybe some champagne at midnight. Did I mention "The Walking Dead" marathon on AMC? I'm there! Happy New Year.

Veronica said...

We will spend a quiet evening at home eating, drinking(non-alcholic) and playing board games.
Getting the mortgage paid off and working on my family history.
Love your blog

Jessica Chandler said...

Love the pink! We are staying home and having my husband's co-worker's over for NYE!

Dresden Quilter said...

We usually watch movies on New Year's Eve. Thank you for the giveaway and the inspiration.

mamacita said...

Would love to win, Thank you for the giveaway!!!

Erin said...

I'm going out for one of the first times in years! Should be interesting (I'm not a going out person!).

bnh123 said...

My New Years plans are to watch Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 and eat an amazing meal (filet mignon and crabcakes, yum!) with my husband. Hopefully my 11 month old will stay asleep through through most of the night.

Michelle @ the quilted tortoise said...

Delicious fabrics!! My NYE is very low key, hubby and I at home with a glass or two of bubbles and a dinner of grazing on indulgent dips and cheeses!

L.H.B. said...

For me it's the time of year to purge and reorganize. I don't spring clean -- don't see the point with kids running in & out all summer long -- but I do a thorough cleaning in late fall and then I finish up after the holidays by getting rid of all those things we don't like or use anymore. It's nice to have a refreshed home in the midst of winter. And, after the holidays, I'm happy to have a slower pace -- more time to play with the kids and sew. :-)

I just want to say thank you, Amanda Jean, for giving us all so much inspiration thru your blog. Best wishes to you and your family for a happy and prosperous New Year!

Sincerely,
Heather B.

Nanna said...

Happy New Year!
I plan to stay home and enjoy my family...of course maybe a little crafting too!

Jen said...

New years Eve...planning on taking the three kiddos to see The Adventures of Tintin early evening. No plans for the night though. Have a great new year! I am excited to get a new start in my sewing room.

Jane said...

Very pretty fabrics! I've got no plans for new years but I do plan on making some quilts with new techniques for next year!

LM said...

Lasagna, board games, watch the ball drop on the TV, then bed.

Myra said...

I'm sending the evening with dear friends, reflecting on an amazing year. 2012 will be a year of new direction for me!

Luv 2 Kreate said...

Beautiful fabrics!
For NYE this year we are staying home and watching movies. I am expecting early March so rest rest rest for me :)

Helen said...

Oh, first of all, THANKS for the chance to grab up some of these gorgeous fabrics.

My wish for the new year is to heal from my injury/surgery. I've been working hard in my physical therapy sessions.

I also am looking forward to my husband's retirement that MAY be happening this year.

Happy New Year to you!

Jeanne said...

We plan on a quiet New Year's Eve. All energy will be needed to organize my sewing 'stuff' in the new year. LOL Happy New Year!

Caroline said...

We have no New Year's Eve plans. I am so tired from the last month of constant sewing that I think I'm going to go to bed early.

One of the things I look forward to the most about this next year was actually inspired by your "Finish it Up Friday" posts. I went through and made a list of all of the projects, sewing or otherwise, that I have started and never finished. There were a TON. My goal is to cross off all of the current projects. I look forward to the day when I can announce on my blog that they are, in fact, all finished! That will be quite the Finish it Up Friday post! :D

Katie D @ The Amateur Librarian said...

Beautiful colors!
I just moved to San Francisco a few months ago (from MS), and my younger brother was planning to come for a visit to celebrate the New Year... sadly, my grandmother passed away unexpectedly, so I will be spending New Year's Eve on a plane to attend her funeral.

jennebeker said...

I'm planning on staying home for New Year's and trying to get healthy. I just came down with my son's cold. But, I am looking forward to getting my first really good sewing machine (a Janome) next week, as a late Christmas present.
