It's a 197 followers/527 posts/new Denyse Schmidt fabric giveaway!

I was planning a giveaway when I reached 200 followers, but I say we call 197 close enough, okay?

By now you've heard of the new Denyse Schmidt line at JoAnn's. The blogs and Flickr are positively atwitter over this new fabric. (There's even a Flickr group devoted to it.) And, because I've never come across a bandwagon I didn't jump on, I high-tailed it to JoAnn's after dinner to find some for myself.

DS for JoAnn's
My store had all 21 prints, but I showed a tiny bit of restraint and only got a half yard of the ones I *needed.* (The quality is nicer than most of the fabrics you'd find at JoAnn's.)

DS from JoAnn's
On to the giveaway part of this post! I'm going to cut these into fat quarters and give one lucky winner a FQ bundle of the 11 prints you see here.

So...if you'd like a chance to win, just leave a comment on this post (international entries are welcome). Just make sure I have a way to reach you if you're the winner. I'll pick the winner on Monday using Random.org.

Thanks for reading my blog!

Whoa-ee! Awesome! Congrats on *almost* hitting 200! So nice to be in a bee with you!

Jen said...

I love your blog -- congrats on almost 200 followers! I want that DS fabric so badly...I'm in Canada and we don't have Joanne's here so I'm hoping that it will come to one of the chain fabric stores that we do have.

Jan said...

Yippee! I'm on a "fabric diet" and winning is the only way I increase my stash. If I win, and I hope I do, I'll be out of town until May 2, so don't think I'm disinterested.

Andrea said...

oh my!!! i'm also on a fabric diet, and would LOVE to win this. though if i don't, i may just have to break my diet and run to the nearest joann's!

Ann Marie said...

OH more fabric to try and win......thanks for hosting a soon to be 200 followers giveaway!

A.J. Dub. said...

ME ME ME!! I love these colors and JoAnne's is too far away. Plus I have been kindly informed that fabric purchases for the near future need to halt. So please pretty please let me win! :)

Thanks for the chance!

Anita said...

So pretty! I made the trek to a supper JoAnn today with a friend, they didn't have any of the Denise Schmidt fabric...

Laurie said...

I want to see this fabric - can't believe all the hype about it already. So nice to see DS returning to brighter colors.

Staci said...

Wow! Really? You are sharing your pretties! Thanks for a chance at them!

Jessica said...

oh, they are lovely! how generous of you! thanks for the chance!

Paige said...

Yay! So sweet of you! I haven't been able to get my hands on any yet. I linked my name to my blog in case I win! ;)

Joy said...

Oh, those are so cute! Thanks for the chance to win some!

Lindsay Conner said...

So generous of you to cut into your new goodies! As for me, I might be headed to our large JoAnns tomorrow. :)

Missplanner said...

I'm glad I found you! Thanks for a great giveaway!

traceyjay said...

I've been following you forever... and not for the giveaways! ;)

But I am really hoping to find some of this fabric tomorrow in town!!!

Becky said...

What gives? I've been running behind that bandwagon trying to get on. My loser Joann's doesn't have these!!

Kati said...

That's exactly what I did tonight after dinner too! I needed some Kona Coal to finish up a quilt, but I decided I "needed" some of these as well. I decided to take it slow. I bought yard cuts of three prints since I had three 50% off coupons. I have three more coupons for this weekend. I'll have to decide which three are my next favorites! Thanks for the giveaway!

ladmquilter said...

Wow thanks for the chance to win, My Joanns was already sold out of my favorite prints someone bought over 100 yards just before I arrived. Congratulations on your 197 followers.

Michelle K. said...

I'm gonna have to check out mu Joann's soon! Congrats for almost hitting 200!

Carolyn said...

Yay! Here's to three more followers for an even 200!

Megs said...

What a generous giveaway! Thanks so much for sharing the wealth!

Angela D. said...

Congratulations on so many followers. I enjoy reading your blog! Thanks for the giveaway - my Joanns only had a few of the prints.

The Junk-It Folk said...

Great blog! Aren't these prints the cutest? Can't wait to make something out of these! Thanks for the give away!

Heather said...

I can't believe I've got the chance to get my hand some some of those beauties! I live over 200 miles and an hour plane ride from the nearest JoAnn's so I figured I would only get dream of them! Congrats on you milestones and Thank you for sharing the chance to have some of your beautiful fabric!

Megan said...

Wohoo! I think I might have to make a trip to JoAnn's this weekend! :) On the off chance I don't win this great giveaway that is. Hehe.

H2Ogirl said...

Mama Spark said...

Awesome giveaway and look at you over 200 followers now! These prints are so beautiful!!

Caroline said...

Lovely fabrics! Its a shame there is no equivalent of Jo-Ann's in the UK (or if there is, there isn't one on my Island!) And congrats on the almost 200 milestone :D

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous fabric.

This collection and my joann not having it are making are making me so anxious! I need it! Thanks for the chance and congrats on the 200 :)

Regina said...

Yay! You are over 200! Congratulations and congratulations on finding such pretty fabrics.

pinkbrain said...

Lovely fabric, great giveaway! I'm follower #202! Woohoo!

Ashley said...

Congrats on making it to 200 followers!! Love the fabrics :)

Kelly Irene said...

I'm afraid to step foot inside Joann's now that they are carrying these. I really want them but just can't right now! lol! Thanks for offering some of the FQs to us...they are truly lovely!

Sarah Craig said...

I'm going to go check out my Joann's today - since I have a pile of coupons!! And you'd be surprised how many "quilt shop quality" fabrics Joann's carries these days. They may not be designer (although they do carry the occasional Alexander Henry print) but they are good quality fabric. I should know - if there's a $10/yard fabric on the wall, my hand will gravitate towards it automatically!!

Stray Stitches said...

Such beautiful fabric! And I'm on a 'no buy' month :( Thanks for the opportunity to enter your giveaway!

Gwyneth said...

oh man, i'd love to win!!

Sandy said...

Tomorrow is my first day off since reading about Denyse's fabrics at Joann's. I hope some is left! If not, I hope that I win your marvelous offering!

JuneBug said...

NICE! I love the dots and geometric flowers in this line, and great to know it's at JoAnns, so accessible!

And... now it looks like you've got more than 200 followers, so congrats :)

Lisa M. said...

Wow...beautiful...thanks for the chance :-)

Wendy said...

this looks lovely-I think I need to plan a trip to the nearest Joann's(only 1 1/2 hours away!) Thanks for the great giveaway.

**nicke... said...

i am going to joanns today to hopefully find myself some! i am not too optimistic...

Mikelle said...

Wow, wish i had a Joanns nearby to check out! Thanks for the chance to win!

Meghan said...

Wow 200 what an awesome milestone, and giveaway too!

Leslie said...

wow thank you so much for the chance to win this fabric. it is amazing....i am dying for a chance to see it in person. i wonder if i could drag all three of my children there today.

Marci Girl said...

As I post this you are past 200 so congrats! So I gave up fabric purchases for Lent, which I am failing at miserably. So as soon as I heard about the DS fabric (I was going to JoAnns yesterday anyway for some Lisette fabric, see I told you I was failing) I was so getting some! Well our crummy store doesn't have it yet, and they all acted clueless as to who DS even is! I hope they get some eventually....but who knows! So I hope I can win some, great giveaway!

Lee said...

I need to venture out to my Joann's and see if they have this - but my Joann's is a constant disappointment to me, so I won't be surprised if they don't! Thanks for an AMAZING giveaway!!!

Brooke said...

I've been waiting for my husband to be home to watch the kids so I can high-tail it to my Joann's and check it out. Taking the kids to Joann's is NOT my idea of a pleasant shopping trip.

Mary said...

pick me I'm fun! and I dnot have a joann's nearby...

Steph said...

I love this line and am doubtful that my joanns will carry it. Awesome giveaway!

MollyP said...

Woo Hoo giveaway! So glad to hear our local JAF has them in stock already. I will be heading that way next week! Thanks!

Leila said...

Woooop here's my chance and I am taking it with both hands. Since I have no access whatsoever to a JoAnns in lovely little Holland, winning these would be fantastic!! Thanks for this give away :-)

Sabs said...

I've heard do much about JoAnns, we don't have it here in England. The fabric looks lovely, would be so special if I could be the only person in the UK to have this limited edition fabric...

UBee said...

How exciting! Congrats, and I truly love those fabrics...I would love to win them, but truly, I think they should go to the sweet poster (right above mine) that can't get them in Holland, poor thing. ;)

Alicia said...

Wow, those look beautiful!

Bella-Boutique said...

These look lovely. I wish we had Joanns in England I'm so jealous because you have such amazing fabrics and we have not very much to be honest! I can get some nice fabrics but usually through american or Japanese import!

April Shae said...

Wow!! Thanks for running over and grabbing some of these, and sharing them with us!! My friend ran to our nearest JoAnns today and sadly reported back that they only had 5 prints :( So we will have to wait until it is available online to purchase the others....patience...uuuggghhh!!

Caroline ~ TrilliumDesign said...

WOW This is such a generous offer!! Thank-you so much for the chance to win.

Marcia W. said...

Thanks for the opportunity to win some of these fantastic new fabrics. These beautiful DS fabrics will be used in a quilt. Something fun and modern perhaps. It's about an hour drive to reach a JAF in the next county.
