Birthday Giveaway Times Two

UPDATE: **Winners have been selected**

It's my birthday and I am excited to share some of my favorite things with you. Fabric is up at the top of my list of favorites. But first, here is a brief recap of my birthday fun:


On Saturday we (Mr. IQ and I) went to Santa Ynez, CA to the Historical Museum which is currently featuring an antique quilt display (more on that in a later post), through the Santa Maria Valley and into Solvang, CA where we browsed in many shops and enjoyed the lovely afternoon.

Solvang, CA



More photos to come in later posts. I am grateful that I have found a camera to suit my needs - thank you for your patience during the recent "photoless" posts.


So, now on with the Giveaway! Times Two? Yes! There are two giveaways - more is better, no?

First, is the "Strawberries" grouping. This consists of two half yard cuts. One is a pink, green, white Riley Blake stripe and one is pink strawberries from Sandi Henderson's Meadowsweet line.





Second, is the "Pears" grouping. This is one half yard of pear fabric and a pack of five inch squares.




I was thinking what great reusable grocery totes these would make! Of course the winner will use the fabric however he or she chooses.


In order to maximize your chances to win:


1) Leave a comment telling me which of the two you would like - Strawberries or Pears?

2) Become a follower of this blog and leave a comment. If you already follow Inspired Quilter simply leave me a comment telling me you do.

3) Post about the giveaway on your blog and leave me a comment including a link to your blog.


Two winners will be selected and emailed on November 6 - good luck. ~~Lisa
