Happy Monday! I feel like giving away some free fabric today-just because. :) If you would like to win these 4 fat quarters, all you need to do is leave me a comment letting me know where you are from and what you are doing today. I'll give you an example. (This idea is totally stolen/inspired by the adorable Camille. I so want her chair, by the way. Swoon!!!)
My name is AmandaJean and I live in Wisconsin. Today I am doing laundry and I am working on my Swell quilt. I am making chicken wild rice for dinner in my crock pot so I have more time to sew!
In your comment, please make sure there is a way for me to contact you in the event that I draw your name. Thanks!
edit: the contest is now closed.

Hi! I'm Michelle in the Boston area. What's up today? Laundry, knitting, cleaning, six year wedding anniversary.
My name is Abby and I live in Kansas. I'm still learning to quilt and I have made some successful projects and some not so successful. I tutor middle school students today and have night school tonight so sadly, I don't think I will get in any sewing today.

I can't believe that I'm the first to send a comment. I love the fabric, of course, but also really enjoy reading your blog, virtually everyday. So consider me "in". Today is my monthly meeting of the Clothing and Textile Advisors - a group under the Extension Service of Washington State University (like Master Gardners except for fabric). We are sewers and quilters and knitters. So off to the shower and head out the door.
My name is Jackie and I live in North Carolina. I am working at my job as a mechanical artist at an ad agency today. After dinner, I will be working on finishing new covers for the pillows on our couch.

Hi, I'm Fran in freezing cold England! The school where I teach was closed for 4 days last week with snow, so it was a novelty getting to go to work today.

Hi my name is Danielle and I live in Wisconsin(really I do). Today I have a dance lesson with my fiancée, but I would rather be finishing my t-shirt blanket. It's make of all our old t-shirts so it feels more like a scrapbook then a blanket.
Hi what a nice giveaway.

What a fun giveaway! My name is Serena and I live in Washington. One thing that I have to do is go get diapers. We are down to the last one, which is not a good thing. Oops! Other than that, I have housework to do and hopefully I'll get a chance to do a bit of crafting/sewing today also.
Hope you have a great day!
Heya, my name is Leah S. I live in South eastern Arizona. Currently I'm tackling taxes (yay, we get money back) and I hope to do some more binding later today, if I can't get some sewing machine time in too.
Oh yeah, dinner's looking to be BBQ cups, but my husband's sick... so might need to come up with something more comforting. Meatloaf? :)
I'm Whitney and DC is home now. Today's to do list includes picking up from the weekend, folding some towels, printing and organizing the recipes I found this weekend, and running some quick errands. And taking care of my infant son. It'll be a busy day!

After my daughter gets up from her nap we are running errands... looking for a new shower curtain, a birthday present, and then a quick trip to the grocery store.

Today I started out working at my job as a media archivist, and then I'll be going to my other job as a children's librarian for an afternoon shift.

Hi! My name is Chris, I live in Alabama. Today I'm making a corduroy jumper for one of my grandaughters, babysitting for my 3yr. old grandaughter and hoping my wonderful husband will take me out for supper tonight.

Today, I am working until 5, then going home to do laundry and work on my tshirt quilt. I saved my tshirts from elementary through college in boxes in the attic for years, because I knew I wanted to make them into a quilt. Now I'm doing it. It's not too late!
That fabric is SOOO cute!

My name is Amelia. I'm from Provo, UT. I'm taking my 3 yr old and 18 month old to the dinosaur museum. And I'm hoping they will be really tired for nap time so I can get some sewing in.

My name is Jennifer and I'm in California.
I read your (okay, skimmed) your ENTIRE blog saturday night and sunday morning. I am totally inspired by your awesome quilts and plan to try to recreate your awesome orange blocks quilt and shams! Such lovely work!
Hi! I am Kathy and I am home working on Valentine's presents for my nieces and nephews! Just finished the cutest tic tac toe set for the younger crew. Now working on hanging hearts for the teenage girls.
Once they are all done they should be on my blog (I say hopefully - with rain its hard to photo!)
I'd love to win! I'm Arizona and I live in Chicago. Its going to be warm today so after I pick up my son from preschool we're going to play outside for a while. Then I'll come in and attempt to finish painting our living room. I'm totally unmotivated to finish it, so I'll probably steal away to my sewing room to work on a Wall-E/Lightening McQueen quilt I'm making for Luke. And a crock pot dinner sounds like a GREAT idea, so I'm going to go do that now. :)
I'm Julie from sunny North Carolina... Today I start training for my new job (yay!), and I'm working on editing photos and getting them organized, but I really can't wait to sew a spring top... so maybe my reward will be cutting it out tonight. ;-)
My name is Mary Anne and I now live in Lake Wylie, SC. We are in the middle of moving, so today, I am heading back to Fuquay Varina, NC to meet the movers that are going to pack up our old house and bring it to SC when we get our new house in 2 weeks. Therefore I am driving 3 hours, then cleaning up all of the stuff in the old house that I don't want the movers to take. Thanks for the opportunity to win some fabric Amanda Jean!!

P.S. I LOVE that chair as well!

Hello, My name is Ellena, I live in Greenville, NC.
Today I am at home, so good to have a day off! I am cleaning, and rearranging my sewing room, It has gotten messy and the furniture arrangement was just not working.

Hi, I'm Christine and I live in Texas. Today I have cleaned my bedroom, my kids bedroom, organized some of the garage (just got new shelving), I have a doctor's appointment at 2pm (I'm pregnant), and I'm making grilled chicken cobb salad for dinner because it's delicious! Tonight after the kids go to bed, I'm planning on cutting out the fabric for my daughter's easter dress (gotta keep it a secret, you know!)
I think I'm clickable, but my email is dcashby at gmail dot com, obviously without the spaces, etc.
Love your blog!
Hi, my name is Amy and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Today I am going to pick up working on a quilt that I set aside in October -- I really want to finish piecing the top. I'm going to a pilates mat class at noon, and I'll be making homemade pizza (using homemade dough from the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day book) for dinner tonight. Possibly followed by either an episode of The Wire on Netflix or Tomb Raider (which I have seen before, but now that I have actually BEEN to that tomb/temple, I want to see it again!).
My name is Wendy and I live in Austin, Texas. Today i'm at work! I'm taking a break by reading some blog updates. A few nights ago I finished a coffee and cream quilt and posted it on my blog.

If I win, leave me a comment on my blog and i'll see it!
Hi! My name is Sally, from St. Louis, and I'm cataloging fiction at work, but dreaming about working on my third child's graduation quilt and finishing the mitts I'm knitting for a friend. Help! I'm a prisoner at my desk! P.S. I have smaller cherry print with background just a shade paler blue!

I'm Wendy and I live in Amarillo, Texas. Today I am home all day because I am determined to potty train my first daughter, who is proud to be wearing her princess panties today. My next child is due in 50 days, so that's creating a sense of urgency! Today I'm hoping to finish a quilt based around Michael Miller's pink cupcake fabric to be donated to a silent auction. It's the first one I've done for charity and it's been fun!

My name is Simone and I am from Germany. I have been following your blog for about a year now - you rock!
Today I am lucky to have my MIL here to bring and pick up the kid from kindergarten and so some housework. Since I am 36 weeks pregnant this is great. We had pumpin spagetti for lunch and I used some time for working on my first quilt top ever. It is a little bit wonky but I am very excited about it.

Hi Amandajean, My name is Diane and I am in Louisville, Kentucky. I'm working today (grrrr!) but plan to cut out an apron and some oven mitts when I get home for my Mom's birthday which is coming up in a few weeks. I'm thinking I'll make burritos (enchilada style) and spanish rice for dinner tonight. Or maybe I'll just sew and tell the husband and son they're on their own! Probably not, but it sounds good.
Holy cow, girl! That is a ton of comments! You have become quite popular, for obvious reasons! :) Of course I would love some free fabric. I'm from Vancouver, WA (just across the Columbia River from Portland, OR). Today i'm sewing the binding onto my red + white hourglass quilt. And then it's off to finish up another sewing project and pattern for the "shop". Oh yeah, and I have to take care of a teething 8 month old. So, nix the last line about "another project" and "pattern". I'm sure that wont happen.
So many people read your blog - that's because we all admire your beautiful quilts and aspire to quilt as you do someday. I'm Dawn - today I should be homeschooling my kids, but since a morning haircut trade fell through, I'm checking fun blogs instead. firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi I'm Andrea! I live in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada, which is about 5 minutes east of Edmonton. Today, after dropping off ds to school,I just finished chopping the 3 inch ice on the sidewalk, after we had a big melt this weekend, and it refroze. Cam had fun "skating" on it while I chopped. After I get off this addictive computer, I'm tackling the laundry monster, and going to sort through the boys' drawers and get a bag of donation clothes ready. (outgrown it stuff) I'll be also working away at my quilt and hopefully have the top done today. In between all that, I always make time to watch my one vice of the day "Days of Our Lives", in fast forward on my PVR. I really want to find out if Sammy and Rafe get together, and whether Mimi wants her baby back, unknowingly after the baby switch that Nicole did. It's truly tragic. LOL. It's truly tragic that I watch it.
For dinner, I'm making HoisinGlazed Salmon with steamed veggies and mashed potatoes. It should be rice, but I have to accomodate my picky eaters.
My turn! My name is Leann Pye. I live in Jacmel, Haiti. My husband and I run an orphanage that keeps us very busy daily. My contact info is on our website at:

Hi, I'm Kit, and today I'm doing the following things:
1) working at my day job for the Attorney General (love my job, but, see number two);
2) wistfully wish I could be outside where there is this bright yellow thing in the sky which is a colour I believe is called "blue". We haven't seen that bright thing for a number years - okay - only weeks (it's been minus 30s and grey for a really long time here);
3) go home after work and start quilting a UFO with my newly purchased bamboo batting! Have you tried it yet? It's luscious and soft and yummy!
4) remember to tell my loved ones who much I do (Love them, that is) and maybe prove it by making a yummy dinner. Failing that - by buying them one. :)
Hope you have a great day!
