Well, after checking the list twice, I guess I haven't entered yet...I thought I had...hmm. I'm losing my memory slowly but surely :(
I'm short of Holiday fabs, so this stack would really fill the gap! I'd love to make myself a lap quilt just to have out during the holidays. I don't know the name of the pattern, but the one I'm thinking of making uses 9 patches and rails set on point.

What a great giveaway! Thanks for offering it to us quilting enthusiasts. I must say I am biased as to this fabric as "Doodlebug" was my husband's nickname for our youngest son! Also....love those dress patterns in your e-mail.
