Odds and Ends Giveaway #3 - License Plate fabric

Before the giveaway starts, I want to show you the results of my first giveaway.  Sharon from Vroomans Quilts won this.






And created this:



I love to see the results of creative thinking! Check out the link to her blog above and read her description of what she did...zippers and all.

******************

Okay, here we go on week 3 of the mini-giveaways.
I am continuing to clean my stash and sewing room, and I want to give anyone a chance to use some quilty/non-quilty items I found.  So I am giving this away:




There is a little over 1 yard of this cotton fabric, usual width.  In 2006,  I made one of my first small whole cloth quilt with this fabric, handquilting each rectangle.  The selvage shows "Fabric Traditions 2003".  I probably bought this at WM.. I bought a lot of fabric there when I was starting out.

This came close to not being in this giveaway....as I finished this post (middle of January) and started to read the license plates, I realized what I could have done with it... It would make a real unusual Valentine's Day quilt/table runner, etc.  Read the plates and you will see what I mean.  But, I had already promised you, so here it is. 

Some of you may recognize this as one of the choices in my 100th post giveaway a few weeks ago.  I have a feeling that there might be an interest in this so comment on this post,,, that's all you have to do.

This giveaway will end on Thursday, February 3 at 10:00AM (CST). Within 24 hours (probably earlier) I will e-mail and announce the winner in a new post after my DH picks a name out of a hat (bowl), etc. The winner will have another 24 hours to contact me with a mailing address... Naturally, the usual rules apply....if there is no contact with the winner, another one will be chosen. 

Ok,,,,,now good luck to all and hope this finds a good home.....


PS:  Yep, here is what is coming up on February 15:

Oh, you so have the option of keeping this piece - it would make for a unique' Valentines runner. You could replace it - it's your stash and I don't think anyone would think unkindly. Oh - even a 'boxy' quilt for a little or big boy quilt. Add some car and motorcycle prints and it's a keeper.

Thank you for such a great piece of fabric - I just knew it had to be a bag when I first saw it. The young lady who now owns it just LOVES it. Thank you for posting it on the boards - Sharon

If you want to keep this fabric, you should and make a table runner. ANother use would be a pillowcase for a someone who just got their learner's permit or driver's license. Thanks for the mini giveaway.

Fun fabric! It would make a fun Valentine's table runner. Plus, it could be used any time of the year also.

I've been sitting here stewing for a few days wondering what fabric to use to make a new purse for my 21 yr old daughter..she has a birthday next month..I've made her several purses and just don't know what color/theme she would want now...THIS FABRIC WOULD BE PERFECT!!!! Too bad it's an older fab, cause I would have hit WM in a snowstorm to get some! lol.

So very cute with the Valentines sentiments on the license plates. Something new for my mother would be sweet. Thanks for the giveaway. I trust your destashing is going smoothly.
