It's a Woof Woof giveaway!

Would you like to get your paws on your very own Pooches and Pickups fabric?

I only chose three fabrics from the complete range.
You could have fat quarters of all the Pooches and Pickups collection plus some co-ordinating solids:





Hound like a good idea? (groan)

The lovely Fat Quarter Shop are very generously offering to send one of you this gorgeous fat quarter bundle.

If you're interested it's as simple as ever:
  • Leave a comment recommending a film to watch - old or new, I don't mind
  • Leave a second comment if you're already a follower with a sentence that includes the words 'pickup' and 'quarter'
I'll use Mr Random Generator thingy to pick a winner one week from today - that's Thursday 25 August....8pm Little Island time. After which, I'll let the Fat Quarter Shop have your details and they will mail the Pooches and Pickups fat quarter bundle out to you.

Woof woof!

  1. What a great giveaway! Film...hmmm...well, it's not very 'grown-up' but I watched 'The secret garden' the other day (it happened to be on and I got sucked in!) and I really enjoyed it! Perfect for watching whilst stitching hexies! Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. If I win this giveaway I'll finally be able to pickup some post - it'll probably be almost a quarter of my yearly quota (too true, I rarely get post and sometimes feel like my house is like 12, Grimmauld Place in Harry Potter - invisible to most people!!)...a poor attempt, I know but it's been a long day!

    ReplyDelete
  3. 500 Days of Summer! I love that movie!

    ReplyDelete
  4. My pickup truck ran over the quarter but I didn't mind because I had a dollar... :)

  7. Ah films I can do! Two oldies. First one is the Alfred Hithcock version of Rebecca with Joan Fontaine and Lawrence Olivia. Love it! Alternatively is Great Expectations - the David Lean version starring John Mills. Oooooh to snuggle under a quilt and watch those movies.

  12. Following the accident, a quarter of the pickup was damaged beyond recognition.

    ReplyDelete
  13. A good film, hmmmm, I rather like The Pianist. As it's so sad I guess you'd need to watch something happy afterwards, Some Like it Hot, is fantastic too.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm a follower! I thought long and hard for a funny joke about pickups and quarters and failed miserably. So, now i've mentioned the words you get a bad joke that is in no way relevant! Lucky you!

    What did one eye say to the other eye?
    Between you and me, something smells..

  20. Whenever I channel surf and stumble upon the movie "Overboard" I have to watch it. I've watched it SO many times and I enjoy it just as much each time. And, it occurs to me, there's a pickup truck in it. If you haven't watched it already you should. If you've only watched it a dozen times, what's stopping you from enjoying it again?

    ReplyDelete
  21. When we were kids we would stop in town and buy a bottle of pop AND a bag of chips for a quarter and then enjoy our treats while we rode in the back of Dad's pickup truck to the pasture to count the cows. Ah, the life!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just love The Hunt for Red October and Rear Window. Of course, anything animated is usually a winner in this house, and we have no kids!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Back about a quarter of a decade ago (October of '09), I made a 'dogs love trucks' quilt for a fellow and had to block print my own pickup truck fabric because there was no such animal back then! These prints would have made that project so much easier...

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  73. OK - for romance, pure and simple, The American President with Annette Bening. For unexpected laughs, Oscar starring Sylvester Stallone. And for roll-on-the-floor grown-up comedy, Hopscotch starring Walter Matthau. And in theaters now, the most surprising movie I saw recently was Captain America - much better than I thought it would be - and the best was The Help!!

    ReplyDelete
