Pay It Forward – A Flea Market Fancy Giveaway

CONTEST IS CLOSED!!!! Thank you for all of your entries!  Winner is announced HERE as well as information on the ebay auction that is now live!  Please come and support this cause 🙂

*ETA I have uploaded a photo of the charms that will be auctioned off!  I am planning on thursday evening for the auction launch.  I will announce the winner of this contest and give you all the details for the auction then.  I will also post the info to flickr.  Thanks for all the support and help with this.  In my latest blog post I talk a bit more about it.  Please let me know if you have any questions!

**Elizabeth of Oh Fransson was kind enough to donate some more freckles coins!  I have included a picture of them underneath the other coins.  Thanks Elizabeth!

Well, I finally did it.  I managed to gather all the Flea Market Fancy prints.  It was fun and frustrating and everything in between.  I am so glad to be done with that part and to move onto making the quilt.  There were so many people who were so kind to me and sent me fabrics, showed me where to buy them, bought them for me, looked at every shop in London…the list goes on.  It meant so much to me and touched my heart.  It made this quilt so much more meaningful than it had been before.

I want to pay it forward.  There are a couple of things I want to do.  First, I want to do a giveaway here on my blog.  Second, I want to do a charm pack on ebay as a charity listing for Somaly Mam.  If you don’t know about this cause already, please click the link and find out more.  I feel like I have to do something as a human being to this cause.  I am looking into how to run a charity auction and will keep everyone updated on the details.  It will not be for another week or so.

This giveaway is pretty great I think.  It is a coin from every single piece in the whole Flea Market Fancy line, including two freckles prints in red and aqua. It is over 40 coins, I am too tired to count them all out right now.  They measure 2.5″x5″ each.  This is the perfect way to get every print in the line 🙂

To enter is simple.  Leave me a comment.  Then I want you to do something on your honor.  I want you to go and do something nice for someone else.  It doesn’t have to be big, it can be a compliment to someone who seems down, smiling at someone….you get the picture.  Make sure in your comment that you leave a way for me to get a hold of you (i.e. blog, email, etc)

The contest will end on Wed. Sept. 9th.  That should give everyone ample time to enter if they want to.

Thanks for all of your kindness.  It has changed me and given me new perspective.  I love when that happens.  Thank you.

p.s. Some of the coins have been pre-washed.  Just FYI 🙂

      I am so glad you got them all together Jaime! This would make a beautiful coin quilt!

      As for a pattern for your quilt, I have seen a quilt in moda bakeshop I liked but I cannot find it back… when I do I will send it to you as a possibility.

      love the owl quilt. your daughter is a very lucky big girl!

  6. 7 Leah August 31, 2009 at 5:03 am

  7. 8 Tacha August 31, 2009 at 5:32 am

    How very generous of you. I agree that meeting such a group of kind people certainly changes the way you think. I love your idea of a pay it forward giveaway.

  8. 9 sarah August 31, 2009 at 5:39 am

  9. 10 Nova August 31, 2009 at 6:15 am

    Theses are lovely!

  10. 11 amy August 31, 2009 at 6:16 am

    How lovely will it be if they reprint FMF?
    I don’t think anything compares to the bright cheerfulness of this line.
    What a wondergul gesture for an amazing cause. It’s heartbreaking to think about what the world has come to. I have three daughters and I shudder at the thought of anyone being forced to live that type of life, which is no life at all.
    Somaly is an amazing courageous woman with a huge heart.

    I think perhaps I will also have an auction for the cause. Thank you.
    big hugs

  11. 12 aneela August 31, 2009 at 9:21 am

    It was so worth the effort for you collecting all these prints, they look so pretty together. Of course I would love to win a set of the coins, how could I not!!!

  12. 13 Jeannette Bruce August 31, 2009 at 9:58 am

    What a generous giveaway. I would make a coin quilt out of it and give the quilt away. Just working with FMF is yummy!

    Great giveaway Jaime!! I love those patterns and would be a great quilt for my sister who is expecting! Tonight I am taking dinner to a friend who miscarried yesterday morning…that’s my act of kindness for the day, but you’ve inspired me to do something each day this week!! Thanks! 🙂

  26. 27 Rebecca Maples August 31, 2009 at 3:19 pm

    Thanks for the giveaway. Yesterday we had a wildfire just up the mountain from us, over thirty houses were completely destroyed. Today I will be gathering up some clothes, and food to take to the shelter for the people who are now homeless. Thanks for the push I needed to “pay it forward”.

  27. 28 danabol August 31, 2009 at 3:33 pm

    Sweetness and light I tell you. That is what your pay if forward pledge brings. And that Flea Market Fancy . . . well . . .it is 100% sweetness and light!!

  28. 29 Doris August 31, 2009 at 4:33 pm

    Very generous, and you are right, the blogosphere make sthe world so much smaller and there are great, generous, and helpful people here…

    What I am Paying Forward…a coworker of mine, single mom of two, recently moved into her Habitat for Humanity house. I am moving, and need to sell ALOT of stuff, and I could use the extra funds, but I realized this morning, she could use the STUFF more, and your post finalized that thought for me.

    So I just called her to tell her I am giving her anything she wants out of our “donate and sell” pile, no strings, no payment accepted. She will be able to furnish a great deal of her home from our giveaways. She was literally in tears at the end of the phone call. Her gratitude was overflowing, I feel better, and I know she will continue the Pay It Forward love!

  38. 39 Bridget B. August 31, 2009 at 9:12 pm

    I love coins! I haven’t used them yet but that’s probably because I’ve never cut any ;).

    I think you’re doing a great thing- if people just said one extra compliment or did one extra good deed a week what a difference that would make and so simple!

  59. 60 Megs September 1, 2009 at 12:05 pm

    Wow, this is fantastic and you are so generous! I have been sourcing seedlings from everywhere and so far I have managed to find every colour except the putty, which is the color I wanted the most. So would love this coin set.

    I think you have set everyone a great task, something so easy and simple and yet we are often too busy or too caught up in our own worlds to do something so little but that could really make difference to someone else’s day. Good for you!
    Megan.

    This is such a marvelous idea!! I love FMF — and love the idea of paying it forward too…

    Oh, so gorgeous! Hope your ebay auction goes well… may have to check it out!

  109. 110 Jaime September 4, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    What an awesome giveaway! I only have one lonely print of the FMF line but I’ve grown to love them all. They definitely need to reprint!!!

  110. 111 Deb C September 4, 2009 at 5:38 pm

    Jaime,
    What a nice thoughtful gesture. I haven’t had a chance to peek at what you made yet, but I am going there next! I have to be honest, I wasn’t sure what all the hype was about, but the more I see of it, the more intrigued I’ve become. My favorite print is the gold & white floral. I am a firm believer in the ‘pay it forward’ philosophy. It makes you feel good, and you often have made someone elses day! I would love to win your drawing and would make a sampler wall quilt for my office.

    What a great giveaway! I can already imagine a cute little wall hanging made out of these!

  116. 117 Jessica September 4, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    Ooh please enter me if you are posting internationally. I will be doing a toy society drop within the next three weeks as my pay it forward. You are so generous to part with flea market fancy if it were me I would struggle.

    My blog is http://thetwowindmills.wordpress.com

  118. 119 Jill September 5, 2009 at 12:45 am

    Thanks for being such a generous blogger. I am hoping to be picked, of course, but I also just wanted to say that it is so nice to find people who are so kind to others and want to encourage that behavior in other people! 🙂
    Cheers! 🙂

  119. 120 Diane September 5, 2009 at 1:44 am

    I found your site when looking for burp cloths and was luck enough to see this giveaway!

  120. 121 Daisy September 5, 2009 at 6:53 am

    Amazing that you managed to find all prints! There are some amongst them that I didn’t even know existed.
    It’s very kind of you to do this giveaway, I am sure it will make someone very happy. (plus of course all the people who are made happy by the people who left a comment. That’s a lot of good karma!)

  121. 122 Mandy September 5, 2009 at 1:22 pm

    oh boy! Would love to be the lucky one in your FMF giveaway.
    You might like to check out ‘The Toy Society’, I think it’s a wonderful idea. There is a Flickr group.

  122. 123 Lisa Michelle September 5, 2009 at 3:36 pm

    Wow! Thank-you for this opportunity. I know exactly what you mean about the kindness of others being life-changing. After meeting Stephen Lewis and hearing about his inspirational actions in Africa, a few colleagues and I started Be The Change, a website where teachers can find lesson plans K-12 all designed to educate around global citizenship and social justice. Hopefully helping to create a generation that appreicates what they are fortunate to have and that embodies “pay it forward”.

    Cheers,

    I have never entered a contest such as this but I have for so long desired the FMF fabrics I cannot pass up this opportunity. Thank you for sharing a part of your hard work and fortune in tracking this fabric down. Pay it forward is a perfect platform too.

  126. 127 Jeanne Jones September 6, 2009 at 7:27 pm

    I have long been a collector of 30’s prints, but these fabrics could make me start a new collection. I love the bright colors and patterns. The giveaway could help start my new collection!

    I found your website when I visited Flea Market Fancy Freaks! and signed the petition in hopes to get some more fabric printed. I joined the quilting world too late and missed out on this beautiful line (and can’t afford to pay the price most are selling it for now). I would love to enter your giveaway. I hope I’m not too late 🙂

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    Paying it forward!
    Mel

    Thanks so much for the chance to enter, I can think of so many patterns I could make with these coins! Fingers crossed…

    Such a lovely giveaway especially because it means so much to you. I’d love to win but if I did I would pass it on to the next person. Cheers. Found you via FMF freaks!!

  142. 144 simplygeometric September 9, 2009 at 5:45 pm

    This PIF thing is such a good idea! Count me in 🙂 I think the world in general would be a much better place if we all operated on the PIF philosophy more of the time, but that’s just my two cents. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win this fabulous giveaway, and for the reminder that we should all add a little more kindness to the world.

  143. 145 Emily September 9, 2009 at 9:12 pm

    I am determined to make a blanket sometime soon, and this would be great. BTW, I am SO sad that I missed you!!

  144. 146 Linda September 10, 2009 at 3:41 am

    What a beautiful way to PIF! This fabric line makes you sing. It is so cheery. I would love to see it come back.

  145. 147 mel September 10, 2009 at 4:46 am

    Thank you so much for being so generous! I really love the purpose of your giveaway and I think it’s a great way to extend kindness to others you don’t even know 🙂

  146. 148 Beth September 10, 2009 at 11:18 am

    I’m glad I checked out the Flea Market Fancy Freaks post again…. What a great giveaway. I might just put this fabric behind glass to stare at. It makes me drool…
