Day One: Heart Strings Giveaway


The Henry Glass team is off to Houston for International Quilt Market so those of us left behind thought we'd have a bit of fun. By the way, if you are in Houston, drop by our booth #426. There will be demos and giveaways there too.

We raided the cabinets and put together a giveaway! You will have three chances to win here on the blog. In addition, you can play along on Facebook because we will be giving away three bundles on Facebook. You can enter both!


Today our featured fabric is Heart Strings by Marie Cole. The pretty pinks and reds are so warm and happy! You can see the line up close on our website here. Marie hails from Utah and has published numerous instruction books as well. We will feature another adorable line from her this week as well!


























Tell us if you love stripes or dots. Leave an answer here by midnight November 1, 2013 and we will draw a name. One lucky winner will win a bundle of Heartstrings! [Prints may vary.]

Good luck!

That's a hard choice. I love striped bindings and I think dots in quilts are fun! I have a quilt planned for 2014 that is all dots and solids. Maybe it should have a striped binding?

Vickie said...

I love dots to quilt with and stripes to bind with. ;)

Ellee said...

Dots are great when they are random in placement and in size. Dots that are lined up like soldiers do not intrigue me at all. I like stripes for binding are for borders, but not both in the same quilt. -- soparkaveataoldotcom

I love both, but if I had to choose, it would be dots!

jackiero said...

Gosh, I can not decide which I prefer :} I love stripes for bindings, or borders placed on an angle to create movement. Dots make the eye rest to see the dot. I'm throwing my hands up for indecision-moi!

Anonymous said...

I would love to get my hands on those beautiful fabrics. I especially love the one with words!!

Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

Cindy A. said...

I'm in love with both dots and stripes! Stripes have to be made into bias binding, absolutely have to. Dots are just too fun to have to do without. Love this fabric group, especially the "word" prints.

VickiT said...

I do like stripes but I tend to gravitate to dots more quickly so I'd say dots for me.

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

Dots! Love, love, love dots!

Pippa Parsons said...

Love stripes for bindings but spots for piecing

I love dots, but prefer stripes for bindings.

dakotaessence said...

Not fair to pick just one 'cuz I love both dots and squares.

SewCalGal said...

I love both stripes and dots. Strips also make excellent borders and binding too! Your fabric bundle is absolutely beautiful. I'm already thinking of a purse project that I'd like to make with it.
