Oakshotts for Giveaway Day

It's Giveaway Day at Sew Mama Sew. I have a beautiful bundle of Fat 1/8s to give away, courtesy of Michael Oakshott at Oakshott Fabrics. I have used Oakshott fabrics often in my quilts - if you are new here, you can check out the my quilts tab to see them, or look here, here, here and here.

This bundle of 12 fat 1/8s is called Lakes. Each of the 100% cotton fabrics is woven on a blue warp with different colours shot through as the weft. The challenge with these shot cottons is to capture in a photograph the shimmer that the different coloured weft threads creates. I went about looking for shining sun rays to help me out.

To win the giveaway, leave me just one comment per person and I will draw the winner randomly. Tell me about your favourite lake/ocean spot and why you like it or tell me about a lake/ocean location you are hoping to visit one day.

Please leave your email in your comment if you are not sure if you are a no-reply blogger (you can write it as yourname [at] emailservice [dot] com or whatever so that the email strippers won't recognize it if you are worried). If I cannot find you, you cannot win.

I'll close the giveaway on Friday May 16, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. PST and I will be drawing and contacting the winner by Sunday night. This giveaway is open to anyone in the world - I will send these fantastic fabrics to you wherever you might be.

I wish you all good luck now, as there are too many comments to answer during giveaways. Oh, and if you have not yet been, head over to Sew Mama Sew to enter all the other giveaways that will be linked there this week.
