Giveaway Sundays - Week 1


It's time for the first fabric giveaway! This week's offering is four half-yard cuts (a total of 2 yards) from the Eva range by Basic Grey for Moda. I've used quite a bit of Eva in my current quilt. Look out for another range used in this quilt in one of the later giveaways.

How to Enter: This week I'd like you to include in your comment a guess at the amount of stash in my new cupboards. It shouldn't be too hard; I've blogged about both stash and cupboards before. International entries welcome.

Don't forget to come back next weekend to see who has won, and check out the second giveaway!

No idea on how much stash you have so I will guess 100 yards! Love the giveway, thanks for the chance!

Leah said...

I'm guessing 1.75 kilometres :) Nice fabrics in this draw.

Ok, after alot of calculations, blog reading and the assistance of an almost 11 year old, my guess is 1393 yards and 2 FQ. I know you don't do FQ but this is the distance from my house to yours divided by 2 people; you and me! I originally divided by 5 children, 2 poodles, 2 cats, 2 guniea pigs and a sea snail but that was a hideously low number!

What Comes Next? said...

oh wow! I don't know, lets say 453m!

Crafty Maine Mom said...

These are beautiful. I am sure they come from your just right stash collection which must be close to 300 yards.

I'm going to say probably around 1.3 km - and I'll admit I'm super jealous of the space you have to keep it all!! These four are absolutely gorgeous!

Lily Mulholland said...

I'm going to split the difference and say 1.5km :)

You've been using quite a bit, but also buying!

I'm still v. jealous of those cupboards by the way!

Awesome stash!!! It looks great in the new cabinets and Ilike the way you sorted them....so many subcatagories. You must have 1000 yrds in there! Lucky you!

Megan said...

I'm going to have to say 1015 yards.

Me aka Supermom said...

Hmmm...the question is if it all really IS in your cupboards! (ie., does it all fit??!) I'd guess total is 1450 meters.

Nancy said...

I'm guess 1.25km cause that's close to two other guesses and I don't know how big a km is (being in the states and all!) Maybe I would be more happy if I weighed my fabric instead of myself in the morning? lol

Lovely cabinets. wish my room was big enough for cabinets..

A Plus Quilt Shop said...

I am going to say 1.4Km and I am super jealous because those cabinets are to die for! I really need a couple of those in my sewing room!

Miss Nancy said...

You said you had 1.016 Kilometers of fabric in your tubs and had some that were not in the tubs as they had been pulled for projects. The new cupboards are wonderful and very well organized. So I am going to guess that you have about 1.5 Kilometers of fabric in your cupboards. All very neatly and precisely organized. Good work. Well done. I should be so organized.
Have a great day.

Brenda said...

I don't know how much you have but I am jealous since i have no stash at all! Tight budget-just buy enough to finish a project. I would love to have the stash you have. i would never run out of projects. I'll say you have 1.56 km of fabric.

Barb said...

Well, we all know how much you had in the tubs, but that was a while back. Some in, some out--mine has a tendency to grow! So, my guess will be 1.037 km.

Joan said...

Emma - you have such a wonderful stash - and soooo very organised. I'd love to know how long it says put? I would guess about 1.35 Kms. That really is a difficult one...how do you measure all that lot out ??

Jackie said...

i love all your fabric colours- my guess is about 1000metres of fabric.

Liz said...

I'm going with 1273 meters--and by the way, I love how you measure your stash in km instead of meters! One of the benefits of having gone metric, I suppose--I have a lot, but I doubt I'm up to a mile yet!

zarina said...

20x90m= 1800m - would be my guess estimating on my own 30m of fabric which I bought last Friday.

carmel said...

o my god!
1.016 kilomters? butthat post was in january..

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Well you used to post a Sunday Stash, which I don't see anymore. But my guess is you have made it to 2km :-) You have lovely cupboards with even lovelier fabric stash. Thanks for the giveaway!

Margarita said...

I love your cupboards and how you have organised it all, wonder if I could do that too. My guess is going to be 1.137 kilometres
