Picnics & Fairgrounds ... A Giveaway!

COMMENTS ARE CLOSED!

Ok, so everyone in blogland keeps talking about this new line from
Denyse Schmidt ... ummm my favorite fabric designer!

Then my friend
Rachel was telling me about this line called "Picnic & Fairgrounds". She said it is sold exclusively at JoAnn Fabrics.

Well, I had to have some. It was not as easy as I thought it would be to find all 21 prints. I had to drag my family to quite a few Joann stores ... but I have all 21 prints!


I did not go crazy and buy the whole bolt, but I did buy a few yards of each. I know how hard it was to find all the fabrics and I would like to share!

I'm giving away a fat quarter bundle of each of the 21 prints.


You'll have 5 chances to win ...


1:
Follow my blog by becoming one of "My Peeps".
2:
Leave me a comment telling me what you would make if you won these fat quarters.
3. Being a country girl, we like county "fairs". Tell me where your county fair is.
4: Tell me your best "picnic" memory.
5: Spread the word via twitter, facebook or your blog.
The winner will be drawn on Friday!

And the word on the street is that there will be 10 prints that coordinate with this line released exclusively in Australia. I have a friend on the hunt downunder for these prints. I will be doing a giveaway of these too when I get them! So be sure to check back in!

  3. My favorite picnic was a picnic in Central Park in New York City to celebrate my granddaughter's first birthday! I carried a birthday cake and all the decorations for the cake several hundred miles and decorated the cake right there on the picnic blanket.

  6. My best picnic memory...My twin boys were aged 8 at the time (they are 27 now)and my daughter was 13 and we had just started to eat the lovely sandwiches they had made when two gigantic dogs came running over a hill and jumped right into the middle of our picnic and then proceeded to take off with most of it. No owner in sight.

  9. Well, as my blog says, we've transplanted to a major metro area. There is no county fair here at all. No 4-H. I guess the kids are busy with other stuff. We usually go home to Indiana to my mom's fair where she enters stuff in the adult sewing class.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hhhmm..I guess it was our first picnic w/ our son at a rest area in southern IL on our way to SC. He thought it was so funny to sit on the ground and eat.

    ReplyDelete
  11. What would I make? I don't know if I'd leave them all together or break them up a bit and make a few bags (I love bags) and use the rest in a QOV quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I would make a beautiful quilt with the material.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The last fair I went to was the Common Ground Fair in Unity, Maine.

  14. My best picnic memory was 27 years ago when I was pregnant with my second daughter. My husband and oldest daughter and I went to Acadia National Park in Maine. We went to a little place called Pretty Marsh. It was such a beautiful day and had so much fun. When we came home my husband even wrote all about it in my oldest daughters baby book. She was about 22 months old.

  17. My best picnic memory is one of my first dates with my husband. I had jaw surgery at the very beginning of summer and I couldn't drive because of the medication. When I finally was off of my medicine I packed us a picnic and drove down to his house. He was surprised and he took me out to a beautiful spot in one of his hay fields where we could see the sun set. It was perfect and he even loved me with my swollen face :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Best picnic memory would be with my son when he was about 4 years old. We own an empty half a block in a small rural town within walking distance of our house. We would take our afternoon lunch, a quilt to throw on the ground, and one of his favorite stories to read. It seems a million years ago now, but we sure did have some wonderful afternoons.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would make a zigzag quilt...with white...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ohhhh, I love this fabric! I was only able to find 9 of the prints. Bolts disappear almost daily at my Joann's! My husband and I are trying to conceive our first child right now. If we have a girl, I want to use this fabric for the nursery. =)

  32. My favorite county fair is actually the next county over from me - the Evergreen State Fair (it's actually a county fair, even though it has "state" in the name). I was in 4-H as a child, and showed there every summer. Ahhh, I love the fair!

    ReplyDelete

When we left home it was 85 degrees. We (my four children, husband and I) were all in shorts and tank tops. When we arrived there with no jackets it was overcast and about 50 degrees. We all sat with blankets (borrowed) most of the day! The food was great however.

  167. my county fair is right here in our town. It's not really much of one though so we usually go to get a funnel cake but that's all.

  170. We took our boys (age 2 and 4 at the time) for a picnic in the park near our house last summer. They are STILL talking about it! Looking forward to some more picnics this summer, now with another new baby to join in the fun!

  172. We don't have a county fair (is that perhaps an American thing?) but in Canada we have "exhibitions" - ours is called Buffalo Days and is held at the beginning of August every year!
