It's a giveaway...

Here are six half-yard pieces  -that's 3 yards-  of gorgeous Jill Gordon fabric that I'm giving away. I'm not being altogether altruistic here...there is a method to my madness. I'm trying to clear out all the Jill Gordon fabrics (which are taking up about three feet of space that I desparately need) to make room for new fabrics.  These are wonderful fabrics, especially at this very reduced price, for backings too!! (hint, hint)

Just leave a comment (no anonymous and no duplicate comments accepted for the giveaway) letting me know if you would be interested in participating in a Yard Sale Linky Party. To be held on a Saturday later in the month or possibly next month. That much time would allow me (and everyone participating) to assemble items and get a post written about them. I'm not sure yet what the "guidelines" will be in regards to items, but I'm thinking "stash stuff." Anything you've had in your stash and want to sell. I've participated in these parties on other blogs and have had pretty good luck selling. So I thought it would be fun to try it on my own blog. I'll post more about it in the next couple of weeks if there is enough interest.

Back to the giveaway....I will draw a "winner" next Wednesday so you have until midnight, EST on Tuesday (4/10/12) to join in.

And for that period of time, Jill's fabrics will be on sale at... 55% off
Good Luck!

Absolutely beautiful fabric! I'm going to check out your sale. I don't have a blog but would so love to buy some beautiful stash fabric. :)

HollyM said...

Very pretty fabric! I might be interested in participating if I could get it organized. I don' have much fabric to get rid of though.
I'll watch for details.

Anya said...

I don't really have much that I want to get rid of (out of my sewing stuff, that is), but it's an interesting idea. Thanks for the chance for the lovely giveaway!

What a very fun giveaway! I'm not that organized to participate in a Yard sale. We are in the middle of getting our old house ready for renters, so I'm on a time crunch. But I'd love to see what others contribute to the sale.

Jackie said...

My LQS is having a yard sale - a quilting one - sometimes this month. An online one sounds like fun too!

Melinda said...

Lovely fabric and a great giveaway. The sale sounds interesting but I am probably not organized enough to participate.

Diane J. Evans said...

Oh, boy, what a great idea to have a virtual yard sale -- would it be only for fabric, or could we sell books, as well? I've got some of both that might be a whole lot happier in someone else's house . . .

I don't know how it works at all but I would be interested in a linky yard sale.

Yes I would love to win the fabric and destash some stuff via the sale.

Kim said...

I would be interested but I don't know when I could get my things together.

Jann Olson said...

Thanks Terri for the chance to win this fun give away. Yes please throw my name in the hat. I am a quilter, but I don't pick up alot of excess fabric. I'm sure I could come up with something for a yard sale if you decide to do it. Sounds like a fun idea!
Hugs,
Jann

I just love the fabrics you so generously are giving away, I love the bright colours. Its a great idea with a yard sale online, but living in Norway that will maybe not be ideal. But I will follow your posts about it :o)

sherryberrybim said...

I am not a blogger but would love to get my hands on these lovely fabrics!

SarahVee said...

gorgeous fabrics! Thanks for the chance. I would be interested in a linky sale. My items to destash are mostly books right now.

Heidi said...

thanks for the giveaway ! Wonderful fabrics

Ann Babillis said...

I would be interested in participating in a Linky Yard Sale, I have a lot of books that would be a good find for another quilter.

hiyacinth said...

Such gorgeous prints! Yes, they would make fantastic backings. i don't have a blog, so a linky garage sale wouldn't work for me.

Jenny said...

gorgeous fabric.
cant wait to hear more about the garage sale linky party, goodness knows i have some garage sale 'material'!

Sharon T said...

Love the fabric! I don't blog, but would participate by buying!

janebird said...

Beautiful, beautiful fabric. I'm new to quilting so my stash is pretty minimal and I don't want to part with any yet. I'm always open to adding though!

Kathryn said...

That's just beautiful fabric. I'd love to see what others might sell, but have no blog of my own or fabric to sell. Kathie L I. Allentown

Jaye said...

I was very pleased to find your shop via Quiltshops.com. Love the name! I am sorely tempted by that Fresh Squeezed bundle and you may yet get an order for it from me. I have never heard of Jill Gordon fabrics and they remind me of Philip Jacobs and Martha Negley designs. Have a good day!

nanci said...

what a great idea. I'm going to be back at the lake at that time. So count me in!
Thanks for a great idea....I need those prints you are giving away!

Brown Dirt Cottage said...

What a bad influence you are!!! Getting me over here to feast my eyes on this luscious fabric!! Her fabrics are always beautiful.

I've seen some others have Sat. blog/garage sales and it appears they do pretty good at it! Good Luck with yours and I'll think about if I have anything to get rid of!!

Margaret said...

I'd definitely like to participate. I have nearly 40 yards I tried to clear out that I still have! Your giveaway fabric is great too!

Margaret said...

Oh, and my email is msolomo1@maine.rr.com

Exuberant Color said...

A quilter can always use some more fabric!

Barb said...

I love these fabrics, they are fabulous. I will be happy to link up.

Terry Kropp said...

lovely fabric. I don't have a blog but would like to shop you stash.

Patty said...

Love the fabrics, what great colors.

Coloradolady said...

These are beautiful, and so different from what I usually work with! Thanks for the chance!

Judy Rys said...

The giveaway fabrics are gorgeous. I love all the strip piecing you've been doing. So colorful and fun! Thanks for checking in. I'm fine, just really busy.

cottonreel said...

How I wish I could take part in your yard sale , I live in England .
I would gladly pay the postage to win your fabric .I would make a quilt like the one showing in your header.
A plea from the heart, please consider me .

Linda Stokes said...

Gorgeous fabric! your linky sale sounds interesting but as I'm in Australia, it may not work for me. I've only been buying quilt fabrics for about a year so don't really want to part with any just yet!

Minka's Studio said...

Thanks for the give away. I'm not sure about the yard sale. Been busier than usual lately.

MB in MI said...

Those fabrics seem perfect for this time of year!! thanks for this chance to win them.

Cyn ;-) said...

Gorgeous fabric. I have not seen this line before. I would love to win it. Could be loads of fun to play with.
The Yard Sale Linky Party sounds like a good idea. Yes, I would like to give it a try.

Jeannette said...

What fantastic colours, I have the perfect project in mind, and thanks for the chance

pizzaeater said...

I love the colors of the fabrics. They would work with my quilt I am thinking of making.

Barbara R. said...

Those are BEAUTIFUL! I can't believe you are giving them away. They would have a very good home in my stash. Thanks, Barbara R.
No blog..

debbie said...

Love those fabrics! Wow would use those right away. Don't think I could let them sit for long.

Brenda said...

great fabrics! thanks for the chance to win. I'm thinking I wouldn't participate in a sale, mostly because shipping from Canada is really expensive.

Heather said...

Those fabrics are wonderful and would look great in a project I am planning on starting soon. Looks like they would blend with some of my Kaffe fabrics. Don't think I would have time to participate in a Garage sale right now but I love the idea for another time.

Gill said...

What great fabrics! I don't have a blog!

Ria C said...

Great colors!!!!!

ytsmom said...

I love the beautiful fabrics! I'm not to the point where I want to part with any fabrics. Thanks

Shelley said...

I've been eyeing these lovely fabrics in your shop :) I couldn't think of a use for them, but then you mentioned "backings"! I think the yard sale is already completed?, but I'd be interested in participating if you do another!

Nancy Sue said...

I'm commentiing in the 11th hour. (Literally). So I think the Yard sale is finished and "sold" :) What a great idea! I'll be sure to check out the next one. Hope you had a great Easter and are enjoying the spring season, and all that it brings!
