This is the day

Ok, girls and boys (as I don't want to discriminate someone) this is the day, the great stash-bursting give-away day.
As I had a bad night and being on vacation I stayed in bed till 10 am, lazy, lazy me.

So the first information is about the running time of this swap.
As there will be readers from all over the world I decided that you can reply from the publication of this post till feb 5th 2pm (local central european time)

And now to the prizes, I have 3 in total and you can choose one of those

1:

I have plenty of african fabrics cause I had to buy every time a piece of 9 yards (they are sold like that in Paris, the reason is that this is needed to make the traditional bubu's, the african women clothes)
This package will contain about 5 yards of fabric of my choice and also this pattern
Thought it might be stunning done with african prints.

2:

This is another pattern I created with EQ5 and it is a part of the second prize.
The batik with the leaves is about 1 yard and with that you get these scraps and I will add more of the earthy color way. At the end you could create this project with my stash.
Gosh, I have so many fabrics from early patchwork days and they remain in my cupboard being ignored, what a pity. Maybe you are attracted by them, just tell me.

3:
You get both patterns and a bunch of different scraps, still have to choose, but you can be sure, the bag will be filled.
(UPDATE 3PM : those who have chosen this prize contact me again please and give me your favourite colors or color combos, idem for the newcomers)


Ok, mystery revealed. All you have to do now is decide which one you want, reply to this post and tell me what you think of my patterns.
Oh yes, make sure that I can find you, I need your email, otherwise I won't be able to contact you if you win.

I will draw the winners tomorrow evening (random number). Probably I make a new post with the winner names on friday, as it might get difficult to make a list with your names for each one of the prizes.


And don't forget to check all the other blogs overhere

Have to leave you now, as I have to write comments on the blogs, otherwise I won't win anything.
Have a nice day.

Hi I think your patterns are amazing; I hope I am able to make them successfully. I would be happy with any of the giveaways. I tend to go for autumn/earth tones, but I would really like to get out of my comfort zones - and so would my kids. So any would be fine. Thanks for doing this. Cheers Sam
