Do you dig dots?

Hello all!
Every time I go to Bev's blog 44th Street Fabrics I am in awe. She is so amazingly talented! Not only that, she is so very generous with her encouragement and support. Because of Beverly and 44th Street Fabrics I went from 3 followers in 2 years to my current 155! All because she took to one of my pincushions and did a feature on my blog. She taught me the ins and outs of giveaways and she hosted my very first. She always takes time for others, even though she is a prolific sewer, quilter, designer and shop owner. Whew! She makes me tired just thinking about all the wonderful things she does each and every day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Bev!

Just look at one of her Oklahoma Beauty Blocks! Wow! Can she use color! Her work makes me smile.

She is giving away a collection of bright Basic dotted fabrics (1/2 yard each of 5 colors) from Riley Blake Designs. Aren't they cute!
To win these adorable fabrics, click HERE. You'll find all the things you need to do to win 2 1/2 yards tone-on-tone dotted fabrics. You will also find a wonderful blog filled with tons of inspiring ideas and beautiful quilts.

If you can't wait to win them, you can find them in her Etsy shop- 44th Street Fabrics.
You might as well pick up this adorable Chevron fabric too while you are at it. Wouldn't they look cute together?

Bev says, "I'd love to know how you use polka dots in your sewing!" Well, I have to say that my dots, to this point have been a bit wimpy. Looks like I all I have are red, black and white. Hmmm. It sure would be fun to spread my colorful wings much further from this...

I am just starting to buy bright, modern prints. I've always been partial to roses in a shabby chic palette. Maybe our gray, Wisconsin weather is making me ache for spring. Suddenly I just want to dive deeply into the brightest colors I can find! Here are a few of my newest procurements.

The last assortment actually has some dots, well, maybe circles. It really looks like I could use some more!

Well, hop on over to 44th Street Fabrics and bring a cup of coffee and some chocolate. You are going to want to stay a while.
Thanks Bev! I have my fingers crossed that I'll win your dots.

Watch for my next giveaway. I will be giving away one of my pincushion rings. I've been so busy filling orders, I haven't had time to play. I want to giveaway an original design just for my awesome followers. Stay tuned!

Wow, thanks Miss Jill! You are so sweet and you are so talented! I have one of your pincushions sitting right by my computer so that I can see it while I work. It's so beautiful that it is soothing to touch and look at when I need a micro break from writing! It has been so much fun to get to "know" you on blogger! I wish we all lived in the same town so all the bloggers could do lunch and hang out! Thanks again for the kind words. XO and cheery wave from Bev!

All of those dots and chevrons are wonderful. The colors are bright yet muted. Very sweet of you to introduce us to Bev and 44th Street Fabrics. I am off to visit now. Happy Creative Hearts...
