Taking Flight with Wings by Benartex and Giveaway!

We have a winner of the fat quarter bundle of Wings. Congratulations to Cheri S. of Washington!

Wings Collection by Jennifer Young for Benartex
Today I am the guest blogger at the Sew in Love with Fabric blog (Benartex) and I selected this gorgeous collection. Just to give you a sneak peek, here is something I used to fussy cut some of the bird fabric:

What's that freezer paper doing over that bird?
There is a fat quarter giveaway. Go take a visit to Sew in Love with Fabric and see what's happening with this collection. Then come back here and tell me what you put in your mug each morning: coffee, tea, Coke?

The GIVEAWAY is open until midnight Saturday, October 22. Then I'll pick my winner (and if I don't have a valid email address for you "no-reply comment" bloggers, I go immediately to another blogger). I only give you 24 hours to reply and then I go on to pick another person. Sorry, but we can't let these drag on for a week (and they have!). Just check your email Monday and Tuesday, please. And I appreciate everyone who visits and comments!

So, now go check it out: Sew in Love with Fabric.
