Giveaway Winner and Sunday Stash



Color Theory from Moda

I have to admit that this collection got a 
cursory glance while shopping online 
this week. I liked the palette, 
but sometimes cyber shopping doesn't 
quite measure up to your LQS experience. 
Such was the case when I saw it in person.

The colors were gorgeous, and it felt luscious!
But was it worth the splurge?
I put a little 'Still Shopping' tag on it, and 
kept looking.(Okay, there was some pink in it, 
but it was soo much better in person.) 
I finally came back to claim it for my own. 



These Urban Zoologie Elephants jumped out at me 
from the fat quarter pile, but were joined by a great laminated fabric from the bargain room. 
I see some little zipper bags here!



A little Amy Butler, some geometrics from Art Gallery, 
and some wonderful dots. 
Add two subtle prints in a neutral off white. 
I hate buying white fabric. 
I mean, I almost think I'm wasting my money 
when I could be buying a pretty print!


I sense a trend in my newer choices. 
I'm moving toward a more subtle palette, 
less floral, simpler prints. 


It was hard to pass on a few yards of Milk Cow 
at such a great price.



And this great print from Toy Poodle 
collection from Kinkame!

And now it's time for the Giveaway for 
the 2015 Grow Your Blog!

Congratulations!

Mary wins this zippered selvage bag made
by yours truly, and will be receiving it
by mail this week.




Thank you all for participating. I have loved reading
about your favorite and not-so-favorite colors.
It was especially fun to hear why you love
or despise certain colors, especially when we, 
as quilters, make color choices everyday.

It's always enlightening to hear your thoughts or suggestions. I try to respond in a timely manner, but admit life is very full here! I will return comments online if it's of general interest, but offline if a personal response is more appropriate. Give me a shout with anything urgent at julie@pinkdoxies.com, and I'll try to get right back with you. While I believe in free speech, spamming will not be tolerated, and as in all our interactions, speak kindly.

If you want to be certain of a personal reply, leave your email or email me privately. Many people are not even aware when they have become a no-reply blogger. Yes, I know it's frustrating for us all.
