May Day Giveaway! Amy Butler and a Monster

Edited June 1 to Announce Winners!

Wow, thanks to all 911 of you who visited my site for giveaway day!

Melissa has won the monster
Mary (no blog) has won the Amy Butler triangles

Happy Giveaway Day everyone and I'll see you at the next one!


So what am I giving away? Well, first of all, this lovely monster designed and made by yours truly, all by hand, no machines needed. I made him up and I'm giving him away! He can't wait to come and lurk in your closet of the closet of your small friend.


He's just waiting for you to tell him where he's going to live so I can personalize him with his new mommy or daddy's name! Or, if you want to name your monster, I can sew his OWN name onto his back instead.


Secondly, I'm giving away some pre-cut Amy Butler fabric just itching to be made into a mini-quilt or table runner. There are 45 triangles of each fabric, totaling 180 triangles! The fabrics are from this quilt and this quilt, and make a 2 1/2" square when sewn together (so a 2" finished block size in a quilt). There are enough to make almost 90 squares! Or, you could pair them with white or another color and stretch them out into a larger quilt like redpepperquilts did.

To enter, simply leave me a comment on this post telling me what your favorite quilt on my site is. The main quilts are all lined up on the left side of this blog, and are all clickable to read more. That's it! Happy Giveaway Day!

your feedsack grandmother's flower garden reminds me of an heirloom quilt we have in my family. Beautiful...

and I'd be happy to win either of your fabulous prizes, but the mini quilt is something I've always wanted to try, and as Amy Butler's lotus is one of my favorite collections and my daughter's room is blue and green, I think I'm destined to win :)

Thanks for such a lovely and generous giveaway!

I would have to go with the Fourth of July quilt. I am trying to get my patriotic decorations out and it made me wish I had something like that to pull out. Love the monster (I know my grandson would too) and could definitely use the Amy Butler prints to make something for my granddaughter. Either or!!

Lovely doll and fabrics!
