{Winner announced in post} A sunny pick me up with a Heather Ross and Aurifil Giveaway

I have been trying to play catch up since getting back from Texas ( what is new right?). The weather is not being cooperative and leaving all that warmth and sunshine to come back to cold and drab is just BLAH!

So, I decided to have a sunny pick me up giveaway while I pause, get some work completed and then I can smile and resume where I left off at QuiltCon with the 80's party and add in some quilt shots too!

What makes me smile ALL THE TIME? Heather Ross fish!  Brings joy into my little heart every single time I see this fabric.  Can you believe how beautiful the Aurifil is with it?  I am hoping to bring a smile to someone's face with this little set of FUN!



I have been having so much fun seeing if there is a fabric that I cannot match an Aurifil color to and so far it has been impossible.  To help you match all your fabric up too, I am giving away a color card also!

Look at these FABULOUS COLORS!





The giveaway is for two pieces of Heather Ross out of print goldfish fabric (the fish in bags is 13x43 and the fish out of bags is 18x43, both are approximate measurements), three large spools of Aurifil thread and an Aurifil color card.


Thank you to everyone for bring a SUPER BIG smile to my face!!!!!  Y'all are the best!!!!

Congratulations

Leanne had some great photos of the winning quilts which I really enjoyed seeing - http://shecanquilt.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/quiltcon-winning-quilts-part-2.html

Amazing giveaway. Thanks for the chance.
March 5, 2013 at 5:41 AM

I will be sending you an email in a day or two when I am able to catch up on laundry ;o)




The giveaway will run through March 7th and I will announce a random winner by March 9th . If you are a no reply blogger please put your email in one of your comment posts (not a separate post) like this gogommak (at) yahoo (dot) com.  If I cannot reach the winner after four days I will pick another winner.

So help me get some BIG HAPPY SMILES and enter this giveaway!!!!!
