Happy 1st Birthday!

A year ago today, Freckled Whimsy came to be. 

I can't believe it's been that long already! I mean, I've blogged long before then, but to know a year has went by already is crazy! 

One thing I can say is that I can see I've come a long way from a year ago and can only hope to continue growing! 

To celebrate how far I've come and to celebrate all of you for taking the journey with me, I want to do a give away! Yay!!! 

I have three prizes!! Wanna know what they are? 

Kate Spain is one of my favourite fabric designers so it only seems fit to give away some of her stuff! :) 

First up is a Fandango Charm Pack...

Second up is a Fandango Jelly Roll!! :)


Last but not least, a Verna Jelly Roll!! 


How to enter:

1.  Leave me a comment telling me who your favourite fabric designer is and which line.

2.  Follow my blog and leave me a comment telling me that you do. If you already follow my blog, just leave me a comment telling me you do.

3.  Blog about my giveaway and leave me a comment telling me you did.

Only three comments per person please.

Giveaway will close on Monday January 24th at 6pm. I will draw a winner using Random.org soon after that! :)

Good luck!

Much Love!!!

  7. Yippee skippee! Your birthday and we get presents? That's a great deal.

    Too funny that you have Fandango. Only today I was contemplating picking up a charm pack to make a table topper. I really like Kate Spain's use of vibrant colours. Verna I think has been my favourite.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I SO cannot narrow it down to one designer like you have. My criteria is all about colour. That bbeing said Aneela Hoey's Sherbet Pips screamed it me to take it home. Congratulations on your blog's birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh that is so hard to just pick one designer. I love all of Kate Spain's lines and I think my fav has to be her latest, Central Park. Pretty much like everything Sandy Gervais and Sweetwater do too.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Already a follower and I love visiting your blog. Love the display yesterday of all your designs that people have made.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Favorite is Bliss . Happy Birthday

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm kind of a Blackbird Designs kinda girl. Wild Rose is a favorite line even though I don't own any of it. Seasons change my favorites. Fig Tree quilts, is another favorite. I'd make a jelly roll postage stamp quilt if I won...there's a quilt a-long on-line right now.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love anything Fig Tree and Sandy Gervais.. but I really like them all. Happy 1st birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Kate Spain is also my current favorite! Her fabrics are so beautiful and she really has a way with color. I can't decide which of hers I like best! I'm also a big Amy Butler fan.

  96. Happy birthday blog! I'm a follower!

    ReplyDelete
  97. My favorite fabric line is still Hello Betty by Chloe's Closet, if I have to pick just one!

    ReplyDelete
  98. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! And thanks for all the inspiration you send out to me!

    Favorite fabric designer and line....That would be like picking my favorite child...good thing I only had one (but he said I loved the dog more than him, geesh!). I really don't have a favorite designer. I don't even have a favorite style of fabric, I really like a lot of what is out there ( a LOT), which creates a problem with the size of my stash, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Happy birthday!

    favorite designer is Kansas Troubles and I can not narrow it down to my favorite line. I do love how all their lines blend so nicely together.

    ReplyDelete

  126. Yay! Congrats on one year!! I don't have a favorite designer as of yet. I started my sewing journey a few years ago with Wal-mart and Joann's fabrics...which I had an enormous stash of while we lived overseas and almost all sewing was done out of that. Since I've been back, I'm discovering online shopping, with designers and I'm loving it...wish I could find a decent quilt shop near me that sold some of this fabric because I love to see fabric in person. No luck so far. In the meantime, I predict in the next couple years, I'll have some favorite designers.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I'm already a follower of your blog!! Enjoying my blogging journey thus far as well and really appreciate having great blogs to read and be inspired by!
