Welcome Sponsor: Raspberry Creek Fabrics + Giveaway!

First of all, I just want to say a big thank you to all of the kind words and support for my new shop!  I honestly wouldn't have opened one if it wasn't for your sweet emails and comments.  THANK YOU!

Next, I would like to try and brighten your Monday morning with introducing you to my newest sponsor and an awesome giveaway!  Welcome Raspberry Creek Fabrics!


Raspberry Creek Fabric sells tons of great designer fabrics.  By tons I mean like....18 pages worth.  Which I may or may not have spent a majority of my time looking though last night.  Here are a few that caught my fancy:


Flora  /  Trees

Their shop is great because you can select individual fabrics, or go with a bundle that will give you a set of coordinating fabrics that would be perfect for a blanket.  They also carry ric rac in some beautiful colors.  
I have been pouring over fabric looking for bedding and blankets for our upcoming little bundle of joy and fell in love with this bundle:


So what do you get to win this week?  This gorgeous Aqua and Gold Bundle!




It has all the makings of a gorgeous quilt.  To enter you must be an Elle Apparel follower.

1st entry:  Simply leave a comment telling me what you would make with this fabric, and who it would be for. (and no shame in keeping it for yourself.  I'd make a quilt that was mine all mine!)

2nd entry:  Like Leanne Barlow: Elle Apparel on facebook and leave me a second comment saying so.

Good luck everyone!  You have until midnight this Thursday to enter.  I'll announce the winner on Friday morning.

It's so fun to happen upon her work. I've been making a quilt for my nephew out of some of those fabrics, and I'd love to have some extra to make some more quilts for a few other friends' babies that have recently debuted or are on the way.
