This week’s prize bundle comes from me!

I’m offering up a  bundle of some bright and cheerful Christmas prints from Michael Miller and Henry Glass. Sizes range from fat quarters to fat eighths, and some odd sizes that are about the size of fat eighths. Its a great amount to give you a jump start on some holiday crafting!This giveaway will take place Monday, November 5th.

Our next giveaway takes place on Monday, October 29th when we’ll be giving away a large half yard bundle of Bella solids that coordinate with a charm pack of Moda’s new Simply Color line! This bundle was generously donated by Stash Fabric on Etsy. Remember, to be in the running to win this fantastic bundle, you must post your project pictures in the Holiday Craft Bash Flickr group! Keep in mind that you can post any of the projects we’ve covered thus far; you don’t have to stick to the current week!

Thanks so much for creating along with us!
