These past few weeks, I've been playing with my Civil War (and wannabee CW) fabrics and I ended up with a few "Chunkettes".
What's a "Chunkette"? you ask....
Well, it's a piece of fabric about 5" X 5" (at least). Could be more - I'm just guessing that the minimum size would be 5 inch square.
This blog contest would be ideal for anyone HAND PIECING a Dear Jane or Dear Hannah, or any other kind of small blocks or blocks with appliques, like perhaps a Baltimore quilts.
Sooooo, it you need or would like some Civil War "Chunkettes" (mostly browns) and you're HAND PIECING or applique'ing and require an assortment of CW fabrics..... this is the contest for YOU!!!
Just enter a comment... make sure you either leave me your email addy or that I can reach you via your blog comment. Anonymous posters? Well, you know - I can't really write back to you, if you win, right? *grin*
I hope to post a picture of these "Chunkettes", in a day or two. Contest ends 9 June, 2010... That's Wednesday at midnight. Thursday evening, I'll draw a name and Friday, 10 or so "Chunkettes" will be mailed out. Oh... and I don't mind mailing out Internationally, either!
PICTURE UPLOADED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Note: By the time I'm finished, I might add more to this pile - who knows, eh?)
