Back to school already. I know I have mixed feelings about it. Excited that my kids will have new and fun adventures this year, not to mention I will get a whole lot more work done, and sad that they won't be at home all day. My kids are excited to start a new year, but hate the fact that they are going to have homework everyday. Oh well, life goes on.
Anyway to start the school year off with a bang, I thought I would do a few give aways in the next few weeks. So here's the first.
As you know, (if you have been following my blog) Quiltmaker has been doing the Scrap Squad post of "Old Glory" over the past weeks. So, I thought I would do my own scrappy version of my quilt to share with you, here's "Oh Scary"
I used only the Halloween fabrics I had in my stash for the strips, binding and back. "Cuddle", (by Shannon Fabric) was used for some of the strips, kind of a fun way to add texture and variety. I did have to go and buy fabric for the borders.
Now for the give away... see this cute little bundle of fabric below with the magazine,
This is the prize.
OK, now this bundle of fabrics is a started kit to make "Oh Scary". It has all the strips of fabrics I used in my quilt, cut no less. You add a few strips from your own stash, plus borders and you have your very own Halloween quilt.
Of course you're asking what you need to do to win this, right?? It's very simple.
1. Leave me a comment on what your favorite school supply is. (mine is brand new ink pens)
2. Be a follower, if you're not become one.
3. Cross your fingers
Deadline for this contest is this Saturday Aug 25.
A random winner will be chosen and announced that evening.
Good luck and thanks for playing!
I totally need a good win right now with all the stress of preparing for a new group of first graders! As a teacher, it's so hard to decide what my favorite school supply is, but I think it would have to be a box of crayons. *Fingers crossed*ReplyDelete
I love the beginning of the school year because there are so many things to choose from. I love new crayons and a brand new composition notebooks--there's just something about that crackling spine when you open it. Thanks!ReplyDelete
My children are no longer at school but I always loved buying new stationery! especially pens and notebooks!ReplyDelete
I do love pens! I love a crisp new notebook to write in with them too. I just love going into the stationery store. Oooh it can be dangerous. I want to write pretty with them too. They need to be fine point, but they have to have a good flow to them. I'm really picky. Oh, and I love to have LOTS of pretty colors too.ReplyDelete
Markers are my favorite especially when they can be used on fabric!ReplyDelete

New markers and crayons. And brand new long pencils. Thanks.ReplyDelete
As a child it was probably the new box of crayons, but now I like the new erasers. So ready to rub away the mistakes!ReplyDelete
I know for me as a kid new crayons were it. But as my kids went to school for some reason I thought I needed new pens too. Anyways it would be great to win the fabric as I need a Halloween quilt!!! I love fall.ReplyDelete
So cute! I love Halloween fabrics. My favorite school supply is notepads -- especially the ones with the pretty designs like the ones by Kate Spain that I get at Michaels. I don't remember having anything so cute when I was in school. I follow your blog and my fingers are crossed! Thanks!ReplyDelete
I'm now following your blog! Glad to find such a great site :)ReplyDelete
My favorite school supply would have to be anything Crayola. Probably the colored pencils if I had to pick. Love all the colors, and everything that I can do with them. :)ReplyDelete
the new planner every year is my favorite. Second is new highlighters. Now that I have a refillable calander that one is less fun. I am also obsessed with the fine point sharpies. I like lots basically!ReplyDelete
When I was a kid it was all about mechanical pencils. My mom would always buy a couple for us as a bribe. I always ran the lead out too fast breaking it but oh the memories.ReplyDelete
As for my kids I am SO EXCITED that school is starting I have ran out of good things for them to do and 3 weeks ago I decided no more TV and No more internet for the kids unless supervised so its been a long 3 weeks waiting for school to start.
My favorite school supply is crayons. I love being the first one to use the sharp new crayons.ReplyDelete
My favorite school supply is spiral notebooks. I have a notebook for everything from quilting to supplies need for our home.ReplyDelete
I enjoy following your blog. Love your Halloween version, the bright colors and great bats. When I shop for the kids back to school supplies I always get some for me too, I'd say my favorite is highlighter pens.ReplyDelete
My favorite school supply are those fresh brand new pink pearl erasers. I don't know why I love them?!! Thanks for the chance to win - already a follower :)ReplyDelete
