Giveaway Day: Sanctuary!

I LOVE Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day!

I participated last May and had a blast with charm squares, so I thought long and hard about what I wanted to offer for December's giveaway...

In a wonderful, but hectic, time of year, I offer you the chance to find a little sanctuary in the beauty of Patty Young's Sanctuary, which I purchased from sweet Tisha at So Fun Fabrics on Etsy.
You have no idea how much I want to keep these for myself! 

Four half yards (for a total of 2 yards) can be yours simply by leaving a comment below.
That's all it takes.

Dahlia Lama in Seafoam

 Glass Tiles in Seafoam

 Zen Garden in Gray

Seaweed Wrap in Seafoam

Don't you feel a blissful sense of peace just looking at these shapes and colors?

Giveaway Details:
The giveaway will close at 5 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on December 17.
The winner will be chosen by a random draw.
I will ship internationally.
Please, please, please: if you are a "no-reply comment" blogger, include an email address in your comment.

Have fun exploring blogs and entering giveaways, and please stop by The Portland Modern Quilt Guild blog, where we are giving away a $30 gift certificate to Sew, Mama, Sew! and a one year membership to PMQG!

Did I mention that I LOVE Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day?!?!

With wishes, true and kind -- Joan
