April showers in the fabric way

Wouldn't it be lovely if April Showers came in the form of fabric showers rather than rain (or if you are in Alberta, snow)? 
Pretty colourful Fat Quarters falling from the sky ever so gently.  Dreamy
Or perhaps in your corner of the world you are tired of April Showers or dreary fall days and need some brightening up of your day. I think I have just the thing. 


I have been asked to host a giveaway from a fantastic quilting shop.  



Sew Sisters is a Canadian quilt shop dedicated to all things quilting. 

For the past decade they have offered Canadian quilters great quality fabric, notions, books, kits and patterns, both in our store in Toronto and online. 

At Sew Sisters we believe you should buy fabric, not postage! So we offer terrific shipping rates on orders within Canada.  They will also ship internationally too.  They also host weekly giveaways on Facebook

Look what will be raining down in the giveaway.
Timeless Treasures Basic Rain 
10 FQ bundle  You can see more of it here

The colours remind me of my garden when it blooms with blue delphiniums, red petunias, yellow daisies, pink cosmos, purple irises and blue skies
My garden last June

If you would like this wonderful bright bundle to rain on you just leave me a comment of where you are from and your favourite flower.
If you are a follower or want to be leave a second comment for a second chance.

Giveaway open until Saturday April 19th
International comments welcome


Happy stitching or gardening if you are so lucky to be out doing such.

Lee


Giveaway is now closed
