Build A Bundle Contest

Are you like me?
I am constantly entering contests and
signing up for chances to win giveaways.

Here's an ongoing weekly contest that is really fun!
Sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop,
it's called Build A Bundle, and the rules are found here.

For me, one of the most fun aspects of sewing
is choosing fabric and color combinations.
That's why I love this contest so much!

Each week, the Fat Quarter Shop selects one 
featured fabric print.
Contestants get to "shop" through the website
and select two coordinates to go with the featured fabric.

The creator of the winning bundle receives
one full yard cut of each of the three fabrics!

{What an awesome prize!!!}

A few weeks ago, my sister, of Susie's Sunroom,
put together this fabulous bundle.
As soon as I saw it, I knew she was onto something brilliant!

{The featured fabric is on the left, and she picked the other two coordinates.}

Pretty soon a full yard of each of these prints was delivered to her door!

Steadfast and determined, 
I continued to play over the next couple of weeks...
I had to try to keep up with Susie!

Perseverance paid off, and I was notified 
that I'm the winner of THIS fabulous bundle!

While I was choosing those prints,
I really really wished a lot that I could win them!

for Moda, and it's called Secret Meadow.

I thought about how dreamy it would be to have a Picnic in the Meadow,
which is what I named my bundle.

For a picnic, nothing beats a red checkered tablecloth,
and I picked out this gingham by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller,

And you know how much I love Aneela Hoey...
I even have that Aneela Hoey box, if you recall!

How perfect are those teeny red mushrooms, 
to decorate my little picnic in the meadow?

My imagination is working overtime with plans for this little bundle!

Any ideas from my readers, for what I should make?

{I've got a whole yard of each, so I can make lots of cute things!}

  1. What a beautiful bundle, I love them all, especially the mushrooms. I think you could make lots of things, how about an apron, or a cute pouch. Off to see if I can put a great bundle together.

  2. How about an appliance cover for the kitchen? I think the three fabrics together are perfect. You will even have some left over to make some of your matching tea-towels. Well done on the win.

  3. Now how sweet is this?? Congratulations!! Since you talked about a picnic, maybe a nice little picnic blanket to put in your picnic basket. :)

  4. Congratulations! I joined in on the Build A Bundle fun, thanks to you. :)


I look forward to your comments and will read each and every one, even if I am not able to reply to all of them.
