If you're new here, my name is Penny and I call my blog (formerly Sew Simple Designs) GHMN Quilts, named after my four children (Gillian, Matthew, Hannah, and Naomi).
I have been sewing and quilting for a few years but first learned when I was 12 in the seventh grade. I have written tutorials and even a few patterns... You can find me around the internet by using the links in the right sidebar :)
From Jaftex I received two bundles of Peppered Cottons fabric by Studioe to create a project. They also sent me a second set of bundles to giveaway to one of you!!
First my project, a table topper I call "Peppered Cotton Leaves". I love the way it came out. I would share with you the name of the pattern and the book it came from, but that'll have to wait for another day as we are moving right now and the book is packed away.
I added hanging pockets to all four corners so this can also be used as a wall hanging and hung in any direction.
I really enjoyed working with the Peppered Cottons bundles, especially the brighter colors, they're absolutely gorgeous!!!
You can enter to win your own two Peppered Cottons bundles by using the Rafflecopter widget below AND answering this question in the comments: What will you make if you win? And if you haven't already, don't forget to visit this post and enter to win some MAJOR prizes!!

Jaftex Corp. was founded in the 1930’s when Jacob A. Fortunoff started selling fabric on the streets of New York. At that time, the mainstay of the business was women’s sleepwear and lingerie. In the 80’s, Jacob’s grandson, Robert, dramatically changed the business of the company. The business focus was transferred to the over the counter quilt industry when Robert purchased companies like A.E. Nathan, Henry Glass, Stylemaker, Chanteclaire, Fabric Editions/Studioe and more recently The Blank Quilting Corp. Robert is now joined by his two sons, Scott and Greg. Scott currently is the President of Studioe Fabrics, The Blank Quilting Corp. & A.E. Nathan Co., Inc. Greg just joined the business in late 2014 and has successfully spearheaded the company’s foray in to precut fabrics among other contributions.
There will be lots of great prizes in addition to the prizes on the Gleam widget below. Visit each blog below on the specified day to enter and come back here on September 11th to see my project and enter for your chance to win a fat quarter bundle of Peppered Cottons.
