Giveaway X

I was recently asked by a friend to make a quilt for his parent's 40th anniversary, and used the commission as an opportunity to toddle off to the local quilt store to search for inspiration. I found a few ideas, but I also found something ELSE - some fabric to turn into a little giveaway gift!

What's the gift, you ask? Ummm....not telling! Because, you see, I could say I'm making X, and you get all "OH, I love the X and want the X" and then X turns out to be a dismal failure (because I've never made anything like an X before!) and then y'all end up with a Y and you're disappointed, so you run and throw it in a lake. And we all know Y's don't float. And then I look dumb. And so on. So I'm not telling you what X is...but I will show you this:



Isn't it pritty? And, if all works out, it's going to make a darn cute X!!

Those fabrics are so cheerful and lovely I can't imagine anything made from them ending up in the lake! Just working with fabrics like that would make me smile so you should just have fun with them.

I love 'X' already...and 'Y' too! And like previous commenter said, how could anything made from those wonderful, SUMMERY (mmm...summer) fabrics end up in the lake...unless you are making a bathing suit or a cosy for a life ring! Love your new masthead/banner! Now are you going to do like 'dooce' and tell us all the minutiae of how you created it on your computer?

Oh X and Y! Two of my favourite letters!

I also love the new banner and fabrics!

I'm sure whatever it will be will be lovely! super fun fabrics.

Should we try to guess? Maybe it will be an apron! ;)

Hmm . . . I've always sort of preferred Y over X. X is just so negative while Y just wants to know what's going on. I wonder if I should hope for X to fail so that Y can reign supreme.

I was sort of hoping for Z, but I obviously have a special relationship with X... but more importantly I love the new masthead banner! Very fun indeed!

Y is all well and good - but we all know about chromosomes...and XX RULES!

those cheerful fabrics would make anything x or y very lovely to have around the house.
