It’s time…International Stash-Busting Giveaway

Okay, so I’m a little early but I’d rather be early than late. Trust me, I’m usually late. Here’s my contribution to the International Stash-Busting Giveaway: Six fat quarters (well, the green and yellow is just a little smaller than a fat quarter) of quilt shop quality fabric, thinned from my far too extensive stash. I actually have two sets of these cut, so if there are more than 100 entries, I’ll draw two names. And, knowing me, I’ll probably drop in a few more bits of fabric.

Stash Giveaway

So, the rules:
This is an international giveaway (which is part of the reason I’m posting this early – it’s already Wednesday on the other side of the world). To enter, post a comment to this blog entry and tell me your name, where you’re from and what you’d do if you won a million dollars (after you’ve done all of the practical stuff). For example, my name is Sandi, I’m from Wisconsin (USA), and I would go back to college, although I’m not sure what I’d study.

I will choose the name(s) in a random if not particularly scientific manner, and announce the winner on Thursday, February 4. Be sure to give me a way to contact you, either your e-mail or your blog.

While you’re here, look around – there’s an excellent collection of links for free patterns and other resources on the Quilting Resources page, as well as a looong list of my troubleshooting tips for frame quilters on the Frame Quilting page.

Don’t forget, there are lots more bloggers participating in this stash giveaway, so check out the list here:

EDIT: COMMENTS ARE CLOSED FOR THIS POST. I’LL ANNOUNCE THE WINNER TOMORROW. THANKS, EVERYONE!

  8. Hi Sandi, your giveaway is just divine – I looooooooove the fabrics you are so generously parting with.
    So, my name is Kelly, I’m addicted to fabric and I live in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. If I won a million dollars I would do all the sensible things and then have a fantastic overseas holiday – I particularly want to go to Ireland and Italy. Of course I’d have to go to Houston for the Quilt Show. After my travels I would start my own home-based business creating bags, purses, softies and other knick knacks. Imagine the sort of stash a million bucks would buy!!! LOL
    I’m giving away some lovely yellow and blue fabrics, so pop by if you’re interested.
    I’ll be back soon to take a closer look at your blog and check out all the patterns, links etc. I’m actually at work atm so should get back to it.
    Kelly :-)

    I am Julia, and I’m from Iowa. We have almost as much snow as your past photo. If I won a million dollars, I’d spend it on getting my mom retired. Whatever is left would be spent on my dh and four kids, most likely an RV so we could homeschool as we travel the continent. Thanks!

    – Buy my parents their dream flat
    – Get rid of my flatmates and rent my flat just on my own
    – Treat myself to lots of different stuff: a new kitchen, some new Ikea products…
    – And finally: lots & lots of fabrics, sewing tools, sewing materials, a second sewing machine…..

  36. What a lovely stash your giving away!!! I’m Joanie, from No Cal but have lived in the UK for 11 yrs and if I won the money (unfortunately it’s a lot less when converted to British pounds) I’d probably do sensible things with it then try and figure out how to keep it from the greedy UK tax man so my children could benefit from it in the future.

  37. I’m Holly from Melbourne, Australia and I’m a fabric addict! One million dollars would buy an awful lot of fabric… maybe more fabric than I could actually pick out! As cliched as it is, I’d really love to share the money around, buy things for my family and friends that they’d love, cause I love seeing them happy.

  45. Hi I’m Diane, I live north of Toronto, Canada. If I won a million my husbanc could retire and we could devote more time and money to helping “Project Jessie”. They rescue animals from pounds who are sold to research labs for $5.00, they then adopt them out to loving homes where they are loved and given the lives they deserve.

    My name is Donna, I’m from Ottawa, the capital city of Canada. I’m
    One half of the team of Kindred Crafters, found at http://www.kindredcrafters1.blogspot.com.

    If I were lucky enough to win a milliondollars, I would breathe easy and jumpstart the addition we’re planning on building on our house. I have a sewing room now but it means my girls have to share a room so it would be nice for them to have their own spaces. (Being just 2.5 and 6 months old, it’s not a problem as of yet but I see the future and it’s not pretty!)

    thanks!

  49. Hello! I’m Maxine, from the South East of England. If I had a million dollars, I’d buy a house, and then use the rest to but the shop I’ve always wanted and fill it with all the beautiful fabric and wool that I’ve always wanted! (I may let others buy it. Maybe. If they are good!)

  50. Hi, I’m Penny, also from the SE of England.

    With a million dollars, I’d buy a bigger house, with A Room Of My Own. And someone to come in and clean the rest of the house, but not My Room.

  51. Great picks! I’m Beth from Ohio (my sister lives in WI, though!) and I would open a sewing salon. Come on over and enter my giveaway, too!

  52. I am Deanne from Ohio, USA. If I had a million dollars I would pay off our adoption loan and my husbands school loans, pay off my sisters and his brothers school loans, and buy my mother-in-law’s 1800’s farm house and re-model it to fit our family and the era it was built.

    If there were any left I would put it into savings for future projects, needs, perhaps even another adoption.

  53. Hi I’m Jane originally from Canada, but now live in the UK. If i won a million dollars, I’d buy a lovely old house and run quilting retreats and seminars…just like in the elm creek books.

  54. Hi I’m Anna, originally from Australia but now residing in Singapore. I am the only non-Japanese passport holder in little family. ;) When I taught English conversation at an English school, this was my all time favourite warm up which often generated conversation in itself. :D Hmmm, if I won a million dollars, I would let my husband follow his dream and study an MBA at a top London university (I am not fond of English weather) and ensure that my daughter had an education trust fund that would enable her to study at the school/s her heart desires. Then if there was enough money, I would love to put a deposit on a house in somewhere in Brisbane Australia.

  55. Hi, I’m Ariane from Ontario, Canada. If I won a million dollars, I would probably travel around the world and buy fabrics from all my destinations. I think I would be in heaven with that. Please enter me in your giveaway. Thanks for sharing with us.

  58. Lisa from Georgia – the state, not country. If I wont a million I would set my parents up with whatever they wanted, pay off all my sister’s debt and buy her a house & car, put money away for my son’s education, and hire someone to clean my house…I hate doing it!

  59. If I won a million dollars, I’d help my brother with his business and I’d send my sister to graduate school. I’d buy my stepdaughter a house and I’d pay off my stepson’s house.

    But, if I won 30 million dollars? I’d set up a new school system for my local city and use the system to help children escape poverty.

    Also, I’d hire a voice coach and go be a rock star. Boo yah!

  60. Lovely giveaway. I’m Anya from north-central Pennsylvania and if I won a million dollars I’d get myself weekly maid service and put the rest in my son’s college fund. There would probably be some left over for some worthy charities in my community…Thanks for the chance.

  61. Love your fabrics. I can only imagine some of the gorgeous pieces you must have in your stash.

    I’m Esther.

    I live on the coast in Virginia right near the OBX of North Carolina.

    If I won a million dollars : I’d buy a GOCCO screen printer, the Nikon D-90 and lenses I’ve been lusting like mad for, a serger, a sewing form and a really cool studio space.

    I would also want to start a Non-Profit to build schools and shelters in Africa in order to give kids an education and to give the women supporting their families the means to start their own businesses. Hopefully, this will happen someday whether I win a million dollars or not. It’s one of my husband’s and my dreams!

  62. Hi, My name is Deana and I live in Northern North Dakota!

  64. Hi I am Darci and I am from California. I have thought of this question alot for some reason I want to be prepared!!! I would buy a house and I would also buy my parents house since they are having trouble and need help financially. After that I would travel!!!! I want to see so many places.

  65. I’m Tori from Florida! I would travel all over the world! I would take craft classes and buy lots of beautiful fabric! I would buy a nice house and pay off the hubby’s student loans!

  66. Hello there. I’m Dolores from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. (I had to put it all in because Toronto is not the only place in Canada – it is Ontario’s capital. I would not go to school if I won a million dollars because I just spent the last ten years of my life going to school. I now have two diplomas, a BA and a masters but no job. Go figure!! I would probably visit my daughters since one lives in California and the other just moved to British Columbia. I would take the long way so I could see more of the countryside – like maybe take the train or hire a chauffeur to drive. Of course I would buy fabric along the way – and ART. I love art. (James Tissot is one of my all time favourites.)
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  67. Oooh, enter me, please! I’m Karissa, from Wisconsin (I grew up north of Eau Claire), living near Boston. With a million dollars, I’d definitely do the house thing for everyone, but I’d keep my day job, which I love. I’d probably use the rest of the money to buy more fabric! ;)

  68. Hi! I’m Jenna, from central Illinois (but my husband is from Wisconsin!) and I would garden! Garden up a storm, no plant to expensive, no project too big! I would build rock walls and fountains and gazebos and patios! I would plant bulb beds and cutting beds and herb beds and vegetable gardens just like Martha Stewart! I am always pinching pennies to afford seeds, manure, mulch, pavers, etc so to have all the money I wanted to garden would be a dream!!

  69. These are beautiful. I make mostly quilts for donation to the Project Linus children’s charity – how special it would be to have some new/hip threads with which to work!!…
    msolomo1@maine.rr.com

    with a million $$ I would hire great help for my kids so I could sew more :-)

  70. Hi there! Count me in. :D I’m Karen from Newfoundland & Labrador, and if I won a million dollars, after giving most of it away to family and animal rescue and putting away for my son’s college fund and paying bills, I would travel! I have always wanted to go to France. I would probably buy a nice little house in the French countryside and that would be my winter home! (I hate the cold, and Newfoundland is terrible in the winter!)

  71. Fantastic fabrics – so generous of you!
    If I won a million dollars I would clear my debts, help my family, then take the summer off and attend every week long art / craft course I could sign up for at the Haliburton School of Fine Art in Ontario.
    Karen

  72. Hi! Carmen from Calgary, AB, Canada. If I won a million dollars, I would quit work, stay at home with my daughter, and finish the renovations on our home. I’d probably give alot of it away to charitable organizations. Love the fabric – especially the apples :)

  74. Hi Sandi! I’m Sally; I live in Connecticut. A million, huh? I could pour a good bit of that into my crumbly home without breathing hard.

Or spend some time at Haystack learning how to blow glass with the pros. Thanks for joining the giveaway, your selextion is lovely.

  75. I love the fabric! I would love to get my hands on some gorgeous fabric for my daughters spring dresses! Thanks for the chance! My name is SHawna and I am in South Carolina, USA. If I won a million dollars I would purchase a home that has room for my in-laws who want to move in with us.

  82. Hi! I’m Maria from frozen Minnesota. If I won $1,000,000 I have a list of places I’d like to give more money to. And I’m sure I’d go on a fabric and yarn binge!

  83. H! I’m Carrie from Minnesota. If I won a million dollars, I’d probably use it to buy a lot of plane tickets. My parents live out in Seattle and they can’t really travel, and my daughter is 18 months old and they’ve only seen her twice. We just can’t afford to go visit more. Geez, that sounds so sad! We do send them lots of photos! I love your fabric stash, please enter me and I’ll make something for my folks and incorporate Lily into it somehow. :) Carrie

  84. I’m Dawn from England (but living in California).

    A million dollars? Ah, that would stop my husband from going on about how he ‘pays for everything’… Hmm, I’d love to move home, but would probably settle for somewhere that gets a winter. I’d like to have a little space set aside for a sewing table etc. I’d like to visit Africa and New Zealand. I’d probably put a lot of it into savings, as I’m boring and cautious. But I’d most of all love not worrying that something expensive will need fixing every time we use up a big chunk of our savings to buy tickets to visit home.

  85. I am Carrie a Floridian at heart, living in the Chicago Suburbs, longing for warmer weather! Sewing to cure the winter blues, is what I do.

    If I won a million dollars, I would buy and run a quilt shop in my hometown of Mt. Dora, FL! It would be the best little quilt shop around, with all the great fabrics from around the world! I would have a vintage sections, for those of us who just love the old fabrics! I can just picture it now. The sun would flood in the windows so that the true color of the fantastic fabrics could truly be appreciated! A corner of the shop dedicated to those who want to sit and sew with friends.

    Thanks for the giveaway the fabrics are beautiful.

  86. Hi, Lisa from Michigan here. Cute question!

  90. Hi, I was born in northern MI on the Canadian border, but now I live in France. If I won 1 million dollars, the first thing I would do is to pay of my student loans, and the loans of my sisters and brother, too. I would also try to invest some wisely so as not to be foolish. I would also make trust funds for my daughter and my nieces for university so they don’t get stuck with loans, too. I would also so much love to have my one place, even if it were just an apartment, to call my own and not rent.

  91. Hi, Sandi.
    I’m Marilyn from Missouri, USA and if I won a million dollars, I would share it in a lot of different ways and with a lot of different people…and I would travel!
    Love this set of fabric and would like to add my to your drawing…thanks very much.

  92. Hello,
    my name is Tina & I live in Georgia ( just south of Atlanta…) if I had a million dollars, I would make sure that any members of my family, who doesn’t currently have a home of their own, would get one…those who already do, would have their mortgages paid off ( & I have 6 brothers & of course my parents..so I’m sure that would take a good chunk out…) & what ever is left would go for college for my daughters & if after all that, there was any left, we’d take a nice family vacation, or maybe even have a big family reunion…(I like to dream big!) :) & by-the-who, I’d LOVE to be in your giveaway…please & thank you!

  93. I would buy a house! We live in the SF Bay area and winning a million dollars is probably the only way I’d ever be able to afford one here! I would make sure there was an in-law apartment for my mom. Lovely, lovely fabrics- thanks for your generosity!

  94. Oh what fun! Okay, I’m Mackenzie, I live in Virginia (Shenandoah Valley area), and if I won a million dollars I would…pay off the last bit of debt we have, then buy a minivan for me and the kids, a nicer car for Hubby, and then a better sewing machine! With anything left it would probably go to fabric and yarn. :)

  95. I’m Shannon, and I live in Kirkland, WA. I’m afraid I would only do practical things with the money, because I would pay off my mortgage first and then have to save the rest for taxes.

  96. Debi here from Colorado. With a million dollars I could sure finish the Stone House project alot faster! Thanks so much for a chance at your lovely stash!

  97. Hi, my name’s Jacqui and I’m from Auckland New Zealand. My first question would be if this million is in NZ dollars or American, I’m hoping the latter because otherwise it won’t go far! I’d buy a bigger house with a huge yard, or maybe a couple acres where my daughter could run wild in bush and get to know nature a bit better. Then I’d travel a lot, all the places I’ve wanted to go, or go back to favourite ones. And increase my stash :)

  98. I’m having so much fun blog-hopping and making friends this year.
    I’m writing from washington dc. If i won a million I’d tour the world and come to convert a warehouse into my home and fill it with all my travel finds.

    Thanks for such a generous giveaway! I hope I’m chosen as the lucky winner!!!

  99. Kristin from Vermont….if I won a million dollars I would first visit Paris and Hawaii, then I would buy a small house (keep the cleaning down) with a HUGE quilt studio and sew and teach quilting!

  100. Hi! I’m Sherry and I live in a small town in New York. If I won a million dollars…….. actually, I would love to go back to college. After I did the obvious stuff there problably wouldn’t be much left!

    Thanks for the chance to win your wonderful giveaway!

  101. Hi. My name’s Alana and I’m from Delaware. If I had all that cash, I’d pay a world famous archaeologist to let me accompany him/her on a big dig – preferably in Egypt.

    Very cute fabric, too! The winner will be very lucky!

  102. Okay, it’s time to close comments – I’ll announce the winner tomorrow. Thanks everyone who participated!
