We’ve put together three packs of gingham fun: three different fat quarters of gingham, plus a full half-yard of Kona white. Here’s the deal: if you win, we want you to play gingham with us, so make a block or four or a mini-quilt, or add some more gingham and make a big quilt. Then on July 4th, post your completed project on your blog, with links back to us.
You can enter on all three blogs with one winner per blog (and Cindy and Krista and I will put our heads together to make sure that no one wins twice). We’ll mail anywhere but planet Venus (but then she’s gone around the sun now–all done transiting for another hundred+ years).
To enter, leave me a comment with your favorite summer memory from your childhood. I’ll close out the giveaway sometime in the early morning of June 6th/7th and post the winner on my blog, after conferring with my buds.
I was the youngest of four girls and was always put to bed earlier than them, which of course, made me nuts because I knew they were doing amazing things while I lay awake, listening to the crickets and their laughter. But in summer our bedtimes often merged somehow. And one lovely summer’s eve in Boston, Massachusetts, a bunch of children (friends? for we lived in Sudbury–considered the “country” then) gathered together on the big wide lawn, the fireflies blinking and we played Red Rover for what seemed like hours. Those kind of memories are always snatches and impressions, but I’ll never forget all the adults in the house, lit by golden lights, while we children played on past sundown.
Now leave me your favorite childhood memory of summer in a comment. And good luck!
~~~Comments are now closed. I’ll announce the winner tomorrow on the blog, but will be in email contact before then.~~
