This giveaway is closed. Thanks you to everyone who visited and entered. The winner is #13 Laceflower.
Welcome to my regular readers and new visitors. I hope you will stay for a minute and look around. I am a quilter and fabric dyer and I sell my fabrics through my Etsy Shop. I have lots of free tutorials on the site and you can see some of my work in my photo gallery. I also have a free monthly newsletter and you can sign up here.
I have a fun project planned for December and I hope you will come back and join us. We are all going to share our "real" studios, not prettied up for publication. We are sharing our studios as they look while we are working. There are prizes too! I'm going to be giving away some things from my glass kiln. Read all about it here.
Now for the real reason you are here, a prize!
I am sharing 2 of my favorite things. First is a TEN YARD package of Mistyfuse, my favorite fusible product. This alone is worth $30! I'm going to put that in a flat rate envelope and then I am going to cram that envelope full of hand dyed fabric from my own scrap bin. We aren't talking about tiny scraps. We are talking about really useful pieces and I can cram a LOT of fabric in a flat rate envelope. It will be at least 4 yards worth (about $72 if it came from the shop).
To enter just leave a comment on this post telling me if you are making any gifts for the holiday s this year and, if so, what are you making. I've made one quilt and will make a few glass pieces. I also am planning to make about 80 Christmas postcards and I really need to get going on them!

We had 12 people link up to the Quilt Along this weekend and you can see the links to all of the posts here. The winner of the fat quarter of hand dyed fabric is #8, Terri! I'm really intrigued by Julia's sage green quilt. That may have to be the layout for my next version.
If you are interested in making a Fractured quilt along with us you can join in at any time and you do not need to report your status each week. I'll draw a winner from each week's participants no matter who they are.
I've been friends with Sue Bleiweiss for several years and have learned so much from her. She is always exploring and developing new techniques and themes for her art. I remember when she started doing her coloring book fabric collage and was really excited to see these new pieces.
Now she's sharing her techniques with the rest of us!
Working with Quilting Arts Sue has developed the Coloring Book Fabric Collage DVD so show us how it's done. Sue sent me a copy of the DVD to review and to share with one of you.
Sue has been teaching fiber art and book making for a long time and her teaching skills really come through in this DVD. She walks us through every step of the process so that you can create your own art using these techniques. The instructions are very clear and she offers several tips that will help on any fiber art project.
Of course you can make your own coloring book collage art using any fabric or color palette that you want but since Sue uses colors of the color wheel I'm adding a Stash Pack of the Color Wheel palette to the prize.
To enter just leave a comment on this post. The winner will be announced Monday, October 7. If you don't win, don't worry, you can buy the DVD here.
