I've been thinking about what to do for the giveaway for at least a month and planned and discarded several ideas. To me, handmade is best, so that's what I decided to do. I gathered and rejected a number of fabric combos in my stash until my hands laid on fabric I had yet to cut into--it is primarily green and red, of course, my favorites. As soon as I began to pull companion fabrics, I found myself smiling.
"Fresh Blooms" tablerunner from the pattern booklet "On the Run", by Heather Mulder Petersen, 17 x 51".
The teapot print is the treasured yardage and includes the name of my favorite tea, Earl Grey. These colors, the whimsy of the prints, the variety of dots, even the lack of a border are totally me!
This is still just a top and will be machine quilted. As I did last year, I'll give the winner the opportunity to choose the binding fabric: either the white print with green dots like the sashing, or this brown and white wicker print. There will be other special surprise somethings tucked in with the tablerunner...
To enter my giveaway, no fancy dance moves are required. Leave a comment letting me know your binding preference, and answer one more question: What color combination is totally YOU?
The giveaway will be open until Friday, February 11th. Comments will close at 5 PM Pacific Time and I will pick a winner by random number generator that evening. Be sure I have a way to contact you, as 'no-reply' commenters bum me out! If you do not have a blog, contact me by email at the address in the "About Me" section on the right just under my blog header.
Happy Blogaversary to me!
