giveaway!

***GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED ***

I mentioned in a previous post that I would host a giveaway this week...so let's get that going! To celebrate the completion of my 1st quilt (http://amuse4me.blogspot.com/2010/05/its-official.html) I am giving one lucky Amy Butler lover a whole bunch of awesome bits of fabric! Over the past few years I have collected many, many prints from pretty much every line she's created prior to the Love collection. The winner will receive 45 different fabrics ranging in size from 5"-10" squares. Look at my quilt to see some of the fabrics...I didn't even use all of the prints that I have...should have planned a larger quilt!
If you would like to get in on this fun giveaway simply leave me a comment telling me what your favorite Amy Butler print is. If you feel like tweeting or mentioning my giveaway in your blog you can enter twice! Just leave a 2nd comment letting me know that you helped spread the word...the more the merrier : ) The winner will be drawn by some random to-be-determined method in...oh let's say 10 days which will be May 22nd. Be sure I can contact you or just check back here some time after that date...I'll post the winner's name.
Thanks for stopping by and playing!

Thanks for hosting!

Hi Angela

By the way great giveaway. Thanks

mrsc1345 said...

I would have to say I love the coriander in pink, but I don't have any at all! I spy a square in your picture that I would love to call my own!!

smoochee said...

Great quilt, congrats :)

Melissa said...

Awesome giveaway, Angela! So generous!! I'd have to say my fave AB print is lotus wall flower in pink - LOVE it! Have you seen the preview for her new line coming out this fall - Soul Blossoms? Looks so great!

kelly lautenbach said...

Congrats on finishing up your quilt. What a fabulous way to celebrate! :)

Kelly said...

Dots, dots and more dots. I'm a dot-a-holic and Amy sure makes some cute ones! Thanks for the giveaway!

Leanne said...

What a great giveaway - and such a good reason to celebrate. I love all Amy Butler - couldn't pick one if I tried. Congrats!

Michele said...

Fresh poppies might be my favorite. But really, why pick only one?

wishes, true and kind said...

You may be a fabric junkie, but I am an Amy Butler junkie! It's sooooooooooooo hard to pick a favorite fabric! So many come to mind.... My favorite line is probably Gypsy Caravan. I love Wallflower and Coriander of her Belle line, Deco Rose and Daisy Bouquet from the Daisy Chain line (love those blues and greens). I loved the large florals from Temple Flowers and the clear fun colors of Charm. Then there are the great dots from Lotus. I could go on and on! I love her old lines, but am also enjoying LOVE and look forward to Soul Blossoms in the Fall. You are generous or crazy for putting on this fabulous giveaway!

AmieJ Designs said...

OMG! I want this bad. My all time favourite is Kimono from the Ginger Bliss line. I have 1 fat quarter that I haven't made anything with because I don't know what I'll do when it's gone. I also really love Kashmir in olive from the Belle line.

freshlemons said...

Hey swappy friend! Great giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win. The quilt looks great. My fave Amy Butler print would have to be either pink coriander or pink wallflower - it's hard to choose!

Karamat said...

Great giveaway - and great quilt!!

My favorite Amy Butler print is Morning Glory in Linen.

Thanks for the chance to win - these squares would be perfect for the hexagon charm quilt I'm working on (I don't have any Amy Butler in it yet.)

Amanda said...

They're simple, but full moon dots are my favorite. They work so well into any pattern.

Great giveaway! Thanks!

Melanie said...

What an awesome giveaway, Angela! I used up all of my old AB (Charm and Ginger Bliss) in a quilt and I wish I had some more. I don't know if I could pick a favorite, maybe the dark blue floral from the Love collection? I think it's the colors that I love in that one.

I found you via flickr. Congrats on you first quilt! It's adorable!!

Elena said...

The Sterks said...

What an awesome giveaway! I'm a huge Amy Butler fan, too. Didn't discover her until Charm (at which point I still clueless about the treasures at my LQS) and I have so many favorites. Most everything from Belle and especially Lotus, and I love the dots, too. Thanks for a chance! -Jen

Little Miss Shabby said...

Awesome Giveaway! I think I have used the Cherry full moon polka more often than any other fabric of hers so, it must be my fave! Thanks so much!!

Me? A Mom? said...

Oh so lovely. I am a sucker for her martini dots or whatever they are called. But really I love so much of her fabric!

Ariel said...

How exciting! way to go! I remember that feeling of my first quilt last year...! My favorite Amy butler print is her full moon dots...any colorway, but especially the orange, green and red/white!

lesleyandsara said...

my favorite AB print is still the old carnations print (?from the gypsy caravan line) but the belle seeds take a pretty close second.
thanks for the giveaway and congrats on the quilt!

ladmquilter said...

What an awesome giveaway I love that fabric thanks so much for the chance to win.

sewtakeahike said...

Awesome Angela! Congrats on finishing your first quilt. It's all downhill now lol!
hmm, my fav AB print? hmmmmmmmmm, probably the fresh start seedlings from her home dec line. or maybe the sunspots from love? it's so hard to choose!

Greta said...

I love a ton of her prints but I think the fullmoon dots might be my all time favorite because they go with so many things.

One Shabby Chick said...

What an amazing giveaway - thanks Angela!!

Dandelion Wishes said...

Hi, what pretty fabrics Angela! Dots are definitely my favourite. You blog is very pretty and now one of my favourites too! Thanks for visiting me recently. I will now continue my blogging journey, knowing there are followers out there! Good luck with your next quilt, I have made over 40 in the last 25 years or so.

Cherry said...

Great giveaway! I think that my fave AB fabric would have to be the Full Moon Dots, and if I had to pick a color, them my favorite would be the tangerine. I love them so much!!

I like so many of the fabrics, but never buy any of it for some strange reason, so I've got my fingers crossed for this giveaway!!!

Cheers.

Goneaussiequilter said...

My favorite is the King's Fern print in the duck egg color from her Charm collection. By far my favorite, but I only have a fat quarter of it:(

Jody said...

I ABSOLUTELY love Amy Butler...in fact, it was finding her website about four years ago which started my fabric obsession! For a while, all I made was purses and now I've moved on to quilts! Thank you for such a great giveaway....as for my favourite print...I'm in love with with her full moon tangerine dots. I'm a big orange fan, but there are so many favs, I can't even count!!

Lisa said...

Wow what a great giveaway!! So difficult to choose a favorite, I love her dots, both the full moon and the new sun spots in her love collection.

thanks for the chance
