First Anniversary Giveaway

Daffodils are my favorite spring flower. I probably have 10 different varieties in my yard, planted by the previous owners.  When the slender leaves begin poking up their heads, I know that Spring is just around the corner! 
Hip, hip, horray!
The fabric above with the sweet daffodils is actually from a vintage sheet. Doesn't it just shout fresh beginnings! In celebration of one year of blogging and the fun I have had making new friends around the world through this awesome media, I would like to give this fat quarter and nine other vintage sheet fq's to one lucky reader.
I chose 10 fabrics with a similar color wave from my collection of vintage sheet fq's. Together, they would make a sweet quilt top for spring, perhaps.

To enter this giveaway, just leave me a comment telling me about your favorite spring flower. For a second entry, become a new follower or tell me that you already are one in a second comment. Two comments equal two chances! (Be sure that you have an email address listed in your profile to be eligible to win.) International entries are welcome.
I will choose a random winner on Wednesday morning.
Thank you, my lovely readers, for visiting my blog and reading about my passion for quilts and life.
You are the best!
*The giveaway is now closed and a winner has been picked.

  11. I confess that daffodils are my favorite, too. My husband bought me a bunch last week & I was in awe! Unfortunately, they didn't hold up well. I don't think they grow here in Hawaii-it's a little warm for bulbs I guess
