{Fabric Love + A Rainy Day Giveaway}


We're getting some much needed rain today, so what better to do than stay home and sew?! 
 Anyhow...
The CMQG went on a little Shop Hop from Waynesville to Cincinnati, hitting up three Quilt Shops plus Ikea!  Yay!  We loaded up on fabric, got to know each other, and had a blast along the way!  The above fabrics are from {THE} Fabric Shack, and SEWN Studio... my previous post I told you about a new quilt pattern I bought, and that was from Lavender Street Quilts, also part of this Shop Hop!  I came home with my wallet a bit lighter, but that's all right... I think I restrained myself pretty well, considering.

And do you think I'd come home with nothing to share with you?
Of course not!
I've set aside two yummy fat quarters to giveaway to one groovy reader!
Navy blue Pez and Bicycle's from Lucy's Crab Shack collection round it out...

Now, just leave me a comment saying what color (or colors) you are LACKING in your fabric stash.  
And you're entered!
{International entries welcome!  Just be sure you're not a "no-reply" commenter, because if I have no way to contact you, I'll chose another name - I kid you not!}
Giveaway open through Friday, July 27th, then I'll announce the winner on Saturday!

I'm sorely lacking in navy and purples... surprise.  And I have TOO MUCH orange, pink, and green.

I am seriously lacking in yellow and orange. I guess that makes sense since blue and green are my favorites. Thanks for such a fun giveaway!

captainsharmie said...

i'm lacking in red and orange! I have NO orange in my stash. so silly!

my email is supersharmie at gmail dot com

I am lacking in purples and pinks. I have a little boy, so I tend to get boyish fabrics, but now I have 3 nieces so I need more purples and pinks!

Diane Bohn said...

I have the most blues and greens, and the least purples (no surprise) and red - which does surprise me. It's hard to keep a balanced stash. guess I need to go buy more fabric right?! :)

Do you mind if I post your giveaway on The One Stop Giveaway Shop blog?

Diane Bohn said...

PS. I lOVE the fabrics you bought. :) the bikes are one of my new favorites!

Laura said...

I lack oranges, reds and purples. I think everyone lacks at least one color. I know I tend to gravitate to the same colors over and over. Thanks for the chance to win such darling fabric! :)

Brynn said...

I'm missing orange and purple from my stash. Orange just isn't a favorite color, and purples are really hard to find! Great fabric pickups :)

Gill said...

I'm lacking in yellows - it's not my favourite colour and there don't seem to be many good yellows around!

DianeY said...

I am lacking browns, but that's OK because I rarely use them. Once in a while a touch is nice though

Flaun of I Plead Quilty! said...

I have a dearth of purple - really only a few prints.

Heather D. said...

I'm lacking in blues and greens, but probably only because these are the colours I'm least drawn to for myself. I like to use them for other people though!

Katie B. said...

Purple! Sorely lacking purple!

Kelsey said...

I really need more neutrals. I am always drawn to the deep, jewel tones but then forget about the neutrals. But when it comes to pulling from my stash, I have nothing to go with my feature fabrics!

Meredith said...

I am lacking purple!

Kate and Chad said...

Yellows.Definately Yellows.

Kelli said...

I severely lacking purple fabrics in my stash.

Miranda said...

i don't know how it happened, since i'm quite fond of purple, but i have exactly *one* purple fabric in my stash. it's obviously time for some focused stash-building!

Myra said...

I'm lacking in light blue and light greens... Hmmmm I better do something about that! : )

Ella said...

I'm lacking in purples right now.

Amys Crafty Shenanigans said...

Hmmm I guess I lack yellow and brown but I'm ok with that at the moment!! I also lack aqua and navy which are two of my favourite colours :) Great giveaway!!

Elaine said...

um i'm lacking in everything :)

Tessa said...

I have a daughter so have loads of pinks and purples, no yellow thought as I found out when I went to do a rainbow sort of quilt :(

I love these fabrics, they look so lovely together!

Karen O said...

I am lacking any shade of darker blue. To put together rows for our work United way quilt, we had to use a variety of navy/dark blues. I had to bow out of that stage of the quilt. Instead I sewed all the rows together. Great giveaway - and the color I need most!

throuthehaze said...

I'm lacking green

Chari Borges said...

I'm lacking yellow and blue. So, these blue fabrics will be great for me. Thanks for this giveaway!

Anita said...

My purple stack is very small, I'm not very fond of purple. My brown is also smallish, I must not be very fond of brown either.

marci sinfisi said...

i have a very small stack at the moment.... lots of blues and very few yellows....
thank you!

stephmabry said...

I'd say I'm lacking in yellow and orange - I don't really like those colors, so I'm not drawn to buy them!

Kara-Kara Pumpkineater said...

Oh gosh, DEFINITELY purple. Thanks for the opportunity! meandelna@gmail.com

Richard Healey said...

I do not have enough blue or gray.

Katy said...

I need more neutrals (and solids) - I fall in love with bold prints and buy them all the time. But those blue prints on a neutral background totally count, right?

scrosske said...

I never seem to have enough yellow or gray for my liking :)

jmj said...

more blue and green are always needed, love the bike fabric!!!!!

Ali said...

Thank you for the giveaway! I'm lacking yellowy-greens (which are my favorite thing) also greys. Somehow I did end up with lots of my least favorite colors in my stash!

Barbara Montfort said...

Great idea for a giveaway! I am lacking blue after I made a couple of blue things.

Lisa Marie said...

My stash is low on purple, mostly because it's not a color I particularly like. I do buy it sometimes if I find a nice clear purple. Your trip sounds like fun. A friend and I made a trip that included Fabric Shack and Ikea a while back and we really had to restrain ourselves from buying too much!

Alisia said...

I've been dying for some of that bicycle fabric! I am definitely lacking in the purple and orange color ranges. I only have a few of those colors. I have way too much blue and pink!

Michele said...

Just checked and it seems that blue and white have hit a low spot in the fabric stash. Thanks for a great giveaway:)

Diana said...

Lacking in Purples....it is a hard color with so many shades....I have been to all the stores you went to. Love them all.

Emily Hedger said...

I jave a serious lack of purples and pinks, which kinda makes sense really when you consider that I LOVE blues and greens ;)

Adele said...

I trained myself not to buy blue fabric because I had so much but now I find I'm seriously short!

EgayZra said...

I am lacking in blues and greens .... seem to be sewing a lot of gifts for weddings and new babies this summer :)

happy said...

I'm lacking in yellow and green, but i have brown everywhere.... :-)

Pamela Nees said...

Lacking in purple. Love it, but used almost everything I had for a baby throw quilt last year.

ellen said...

I am lacking purples and grays.

B Greene said...

Yellows - I just am never drawn to them :-( They really do brighten up a scrap quilt, so I should be more diligent about adding them.

Jennifer Gail said...

I lack yellows. Thanks for giveaway:)

Sallie said...

I lack purples. Thanks for the giveaway!

Liz, Quilt Adventurer said...

browns. can't see why i need them...but every once in a while a good brown would come in handy!

Bonni Eldridge said...

I'm lacking a stash in general! I'm a new quilter and all the fabric choices are overwhelming, so I typically just buy the necessary amounts for what I'm working on.

jmniffer said...

Pinks, purples and orange...have to work on fixing that. So many fabrics, such a tiny fabric budget! Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

Michelle Hudak said...

Reds and pink...I seem to have almost none.

cherylj said...

I am lacking purple, but that is okay because I don't really like purple. I love blues though, those fat quarters are very pretty.

swellsewing said...

I am in dire need of blues!! THanksQ

Sarah Jackson said...

I am sorely lacking in navy! and purple, but I never use purple so that's okay. This would be perfect!

mahoo said...

Chelsea said...

Just like you I'm really short on navy and purple! I could probably do with more greens and yellows, the latter because I go through them so quickly!

Mama Masek said...

I don't have a single piece of purple!!!!! I have lots and lots of reds....love red!

harrispen said...

I hate to say it, but I have some of every color in the rainbow. The only thing I might be lacking is space to put more fabric, but I will squeeze it in if I win.

Karen said...

I'm short on greens and double pinks. Definitely need to beef up those two colors.

Tamie said...

I really need to study this more but my guess is that I'm really lacking in aqua and yellows. I'm sure I need to fill in more too.

Tansy Dolls said...

I'm seriously lacking purples.

Captain StitchyPants said...

I've only been quilting a couple of months, but seem to have built up an alarming stash in that time! I don't seem to have much green, though. A shame, because it's a favourite of mine.

What a lovely giveaway!

Susanne said...

I don't have many greens. Seems difficult to find right and matching greens for me.
Thanks for the chance :)
Susanne

Silke said...

I'm lacking in grey and green.
Thanks for the giveaway :-)

Molly said...

Oh gee ... my fabric is not very organized so I'm not sure what color I'm lacking. But I seem to have way too much in the pink area and would like some "boyish" colors to balance.

Mike Pearson said...

I am always lacking green!!!!!!

Carly said...

Great giveaway! Right now orange and red are lacking for me. Plus purple!

Jane@Buzzmills said...

I don't have much orange or yellow...

Marcia W. said...

My favorite color is the blue family, which goes from purples into aquas/turquoise. So, it's no surprise that I'm lacking in blues -- and that I would love love to win your prize of blue fqs. alternate email mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

quilt happy said...

i have a very small stash so i am lacking in most colors thanks

T said...

my stash is seriously lacking in green-it's the hardest to find locally in nice shades so that's not really a surprise...however, it's definitely the blues and purples that cycle out the fastest.

nancy said...

I could use some navy, love the bicycles. thanks for the chance to win.

Krista S. said...

Hmmmm.....I'm lacking oranges the most. Will have to check out that shop since I'm in Springfield and make my way down to Ikea often :)

handmadebytracie said...

Laura said...

I don't have many purples, pinks or yellows. I have an awful lot of blue though!

Homemaker Honey said...

I seem to e lacking red.

Deborah

Nita said...

I'm lacking soft blues. Every time I go to buy blue, I come home with purple! (guess what is my favourite colour, lol!)

Liz said...

I'm not sure what colors I'm lacking, to be honest... I KNOW I have no brown but I don't really feel like I'm missing it!

Jessica E said...

oooo, I love these!! I am missing yellows and reds from my stash, I tend to swing more towards cooler colors I suppose.

I am missing blues mostly.

I love the fabric!!

Thank you

Maria said...

Rich blues and purples. There don't seem to be nearly as many choices in the purple range as there are in other colors, such as green, orange, pink, etc. :)

ambjer said...

i'm a new sewer so I'm just starting a stash, but right now I'm lacking blues and greens.

ambjer (at) gmail (dot) com

Njeri said...

I would say pink! I have lots of greens and blues but nothing pink.

Margaret said...

I joined a block swap this year and realize that I do not have very many solids. It seems like every block wants solids and I have had to go buy more fabric than I wanted. I was hoping to make most of these using my stash.

Robin Haupt said...

I actually have the least tans/beiges/browns. I was surprised my darn self!

2sew4fun said...

I have just made friends with orange .... Very small amounts in my stash!

Carmen Nuland said...

I'd say I'm missing neutrals - I have lots of red/green/blue/yellow, bright colors, but no tan, brown, black.

Addibrae said...

I'm lacking solids
