Olive the Ostrich giveaway

Who wants some Olive the Ostrich fabric!? I'm giving away two fat quarter sets. Let's spread the Olive love far and wide! One FQ set will go to an international reader and one to someone here in the US. So when you leave me your comment, let me know where you live and when I use the random number generator gizmo, I'll make sure to keep picking until we find one winner from each group. :)

And for some inspiration eye candy, here's a few projects from a few peeps who were able to get their hands on some Olive early so they could help me show off the line. The whole collections starts shipping in November, so this is a chance to get some on your cutting tables early!

Scallop bag by Artsy-Crafty Babe

Insignia Quilt by Bluprint Textiles

Hexie clutch by Sew Sweetness

Gift bags by Crafty Cupboard

Placemats by Stitches & Scissors


A girl's skirt and tank I made

A little dress and ruffled bloomers I made

All of those shots make me want to go bust into my Olive stash and start on something new and Olive-y! 

To register to win, just leave me your comment here (don't forget to tell me where you're from and make sure I can contact you). In your comment let me know what you might make with your Olive FQ set. Can't wait to hear what your'e dreaming of. I'll draw the winner this Friday, 9/28.

Oh!!! And as a side not, someone emailed me after the last giveaway and we determined that Olive's beau is named Orlando. :)
