{Pezzy Giveaway}

Have you ever visited FabricShack.com?  I've bought a few things from their site and noticed once or twice that they're located in Waynesville, Ohio.  Well I'm in Columbus and always thought "Where the heck is Waynesville?  Probably up near Cleveland.... too far to drive. Meh."
On the contrary.

Waynesville is just southeast of Dayton, completely NOT where I thought it was.  My friend AnneMarie coaxed me into taking a little road trip there this past Saturday and in about an hour and a half we were in fabric heaven!  I kid you not, they actually have two buildings about a block apart - one for home dec fabric and one for quilting fabric!  Thats how huge it is!  And it was busy the entire time we were there. 

They had loads of batiks, mixers, semi-solids, and traditional fabrics... but they had lots of modern collections too - from Heather Ross to the below Pez by Moda (although yardage is unfortunately not yet available.)  So I grabbed the above stack in practically no time, much of which was clearance for $3.98/yd including the mustard Lotus by Amy Butler!  I felt it was my duty to pull it out of the scrap bin and bring it home to cuddle with.  Seriously.

And guess what I brought back to share...
a charm pack of the Pezzy Prints!  One for me, one for you...


{ COMMENTS NOW CLOSED! }

Leave a comment telling me what you'd create with this charm pack, be as specific or vague as you like!   
Just be sure to LEAVE A WAY FOR ME TO CONTACT YOU otherwise I'll choose a different winner.  
No contact info = no entry
(Sadly that happened when I gave away an Accuquilt Go!Baby Cutter a few months ago so I had to draw a different winner.... it happens people!)
International entries welcome... I'll draw a name some time this Friday, January 13th.  It could be your lucky day!

ps - I am in no way affiliated with, paid by, endorsing, advertising for, or associated with, Fabric Shack.  It was just fun shopping there in person - so I thought I'd share :-)

Oh, I never win anything, but I'll give it a shot. :)
The new year brought tons of ideas for quilts and projects to my mind, but I don't know what fabrics to use in many of them, so maybe some pezzy prints? Maybe something for one of the soon to be born babies on my list.

I would make a baby playmat for one of the babies I know due this year.

cakegirl said...

I have 5 baby quilts to make. One of our former babysitters is having her first child and we are very excited. Not knowing the sex of the baby, this fabric would be perfect for a neutral quilt.

Theresa said...

I always wondered what Fabric Shack was like - I buy online almost exclusively as their prices are so reasonable. You lucky thing being local! Now....Pezzy Print is so fun, I think it would make a great cushion for my little boys room. Thank you for thinking of us!

Allison C said...

I'm in the beginning stages of collecting and cutting 2" squares to make a Tokyo subway map from the tut on Elizabeth Hartman's blog. These would be a perfect addition!

Melissa Kirk said...

Something with flying geese

Kirsten N said...

Such cute fabric!! I would love to make some mug rugs for my friends at work as I didn't get around to making them anything for christmas!

NotYetTheDodo said...

Ooooh, these are lovely! I'd make them into a hexagon-thingy, combined with dark grey solids, so thepazzies would really stand out. I order from Fabric Shack every once in a while.... now I suddenly have a great need to go and see the live version!!! ;-)

Love those colors! Well, since I have just learned I am to become a GRANDMOTHER for the first time, you can imagine where my thoughts are...I would use those lovely prints to make a sweet baby quilt!

Brynn said...

A pinwheel quilt would be awesome for one of the upcoming babies around me. Or maybe I'd just pet it for awhile ;)

Raechel said...

I have a friend who is pregnant and they have decided not to find out the gender before the baby is born. I have had my eye on this as a good base for their baby quilt!

Melissa said...

Those are some nice fabric finds! Great score on the wallflower!!!

I adore the pezzy prints. I think they'd look fabulous in a flying geese quilt.

Thank you so much for sharing with us!!!

epban said...

I'd make place mats to match my Fiestaware. I love those clearance carts at Fabric Shack. I drive up when I visit my parents in Cincinnati. I didn't realize it was so close until a couple of years ago!

Rosemary P. said...

Probably some place mats. Now since I live in Columbus as well, you have inspired me to take a trip to Fabric Shack as well.

Jessica said...
