Take a Memo - Another Fabric Giveaway

Memo: It's time for another fun Andover fabric giveaway - just in time for the holidays. Starting today, leave a comment on my blog and you'll have a chance to win some fabric. One of you will be the Grand Prize Winner and receive a fat quarter bundle of Andover's new Essex fabric (designed by Jo Morton) that I used to make this cute fabric-covered memo board (also called a French memo board). Even better, 5 of you will win a charm pack of this fabric.


 
All you have to do to win is follow the instructions below and then leave me a comment to enter. There will be 6 winners in all. Please make sure you leave your name and a way I can contact you if you win.
 
 

Okay - read this carefully. In your comment, tell me the top item on your Holiday Gift List.  What would you like Santa to bring you this Christmas? Leave your name in the comment and a way for me to reach you if you are one of the winners.

Comments will close on Thursday night, December 20, and I will announce the winners on Friday. Again, make sure you leave your name and a way for me to contact you if you win.
 
Here's how make a memo board -

1.  First, buy a large foam poster board at an office supply store. 

2.  Decide on the size of your board and pick out your fabric. The Andover Essex fabric is home decorating quality and so is a little thicker than your usual quilting fabric and perfect for this kind of project. I wanted to make mine to hang in the kitchen but we have very little available wall space in our kitchen so I cut the board to about  18"  x  24" to fit in one spot.

 
3.  Cut your fabric an inch and a half larger than your poster board all around.

 
4.  Layer some batting with the fabric (cut it the same size as the board). I found some old polyester batting in the basement that I don't use for quilts anymore and doubled it to give the board a little padding. Place the fabric face down with the batting on top. Then place the board over both.

 
5.  Bring the edges of the fabric over and staple to the back side of board, all around, pulling the fabric taut and starting with the opposite sides.

 
6.  Once the board is covered you can add your ribbon. I used 11 feet of  3/8 inch green satin ribbon. Measure and cut 2 diagonal strips of ribbon, at least one inch larger on each side. Pin then to the fabric, crossing in the center. Staple to the back.


 7.  Mark the center of each side on the back of the board. Measure and cut 4 more strips and place on the diagonal from the center of the long side to the center of the short side, creating a diamond shape on top of the X shape and an overall lattice design. Staple these to the back, again keeping the ribbons taut.


8.  Add some pretty buttons where the ribbons intersect. I stapled the intersections first and then used my hot glue gun to glue the butttons in place.

9.  Hang your board with  3M command strips or hang it from a loop of ribbon stapled onto the back.


 
There are so many options with this fabric and different colors of coordinating ribbon. I thought at first of using red ribbon for a nice contrast. I think maybe I'll make a few more smaller ones to have in different rooms around the house. Perhaps one for my daughter's room. She said she'd like one in the red fabric with a cream satin ribbon. Yep, more gifts to make!


 
 
*   *   *

Leave me a comment and then go make some cookies or finish your shopping and think about what you'd make if you won some of this yummy fabric. And please let Andover know how much you love and appreciate this whole fun holiday giveaway by telling them and "liking" them on Facebook. Good luck to all of you!

Love the memo board! When my DD was younger, we made one to match her room. A fun project to do together. I am hoping for DD to make it home for Christmas~ that would be a wonderful gift for me. Thank you for the fun!

Great memo board and I love the new Jo Morton fabric. I'm always looking for something to put my cards in and this certainly beats a cork board. I would love for Santa to bring me an Ipad. And perhaps some Jo Morton fabric. - Judith Hogan, jahogan@shaw.ca

darlon smith said...

What a cute way to display your cards! I love Jo Morton fabrics so that makes it even better. My favorite gift for Christmas is a gift certificate to my LQS. Or maybe a fat quarter pack...at any rate it involves fabric!

Podunk Pretties said...

Love your memo board! I bookmarked several things for santa this year. Most were fat quarter bundles. It seems santa likes to give me practical things like space heaters, mixers and not fun things. Fabric! Fabric! Fabric! Hope santa got the hint. Thanks for the fun!

Phyllis said...

I really don't have a list, but my hubby always gives me a box of the wonderful pears from Harry and David, so I'm looking forward to getting them.

Love the memo board and the fabric. Thanks for the tutorial to make one. I have been eyeing them in the store but never like the fabric they use.
Merry Christmas!

Oh my goodness, the Jo Morton fabric is simply beyond gorgeous!! My mind is spinning with creative ideas for its use. But first let me slow down and tell you my number one wish for Christmas this year. I would love to find nontraditional gift cards. Let me explain...I want gift cards for a special time/event with each member of my family to be fulfilled in the next year. Merry Christmas to you! Kristy soardkgatfusedotnet

Hi Kathy,
What a lovely fabric giveaway. I love your memo board- very useful. I should make one for my kitchen. First, however, I need to get my sewing machine in working order- then I will be back in business. SO, if Santa is listening, that would be first on my list. Perhaps if that is not possible, a delicious dark chocolate candy bar- the bigger the better, would be perfect.
Thank you and have a wonderful holiday season!

I would like one section of an old white picket fence for Christmas. I will take a few of the pickets out, turn the fence on its side and hang it on a wall. I think that this will make a great place to hang quilts.

Love the fabric... will leave a message with Andover.

Have a wonderful Christmas and thanks for the chance to win some lovely fabrics.

The fabric is great but then I'm a big fan of Jo Morton's creations. The memo board looks great, thanks for the instructions. The top thing I would wish for this year is more actual quilting time (and to see my grandchildren more).

Love ANY Jo Morton fabric - this collection reminds me of my grandmother's house! I got a new sewing machine this year when they were on sale, so I guess all I would like this year is my family gathered for the holiday, and time in the New Year to sew and make all the things already in progress and in my head, awaiting a start. Good health is also on the top of my list!

Thank you for offering the fabric as a giveaway. It's gorgeous!

I love that memo board. Jo's fabrics are beautiful and perfect for such a nice project as that. Now, if hubby and I were to exchange gifts, my idea for me this year is a personalized license plate. I have been thinking about that for years, but have never wanted to just go out and order it on my own.

Gorgeous fabric range, and perfect for the notice board project. I would love a sewing chair and footstool in beautiful fabric for Christmas, but I am more than happy to just be with my family. Cool weather on Christmas Day would be a bonus! Thanks and Merry Christmas.

I'd love for Santa to bring me the blueprints for a sewing room addition to our house. (Forty years of sewing on the dining room table are long enough.) Realistically, I'm hoping that Santa brings me a new pastry cutter. I'm tired of mixing piecrust or my cheddar garlic biscuits with two forks. No matter which Santa brings, I'll smile and be happy.
Those Jo Morton fabrics would help make up for not getting a new sewing room. Thanks for offering them.

Thank you for the memo board tutorial. What a great way to display a beautiful fabric as well as cards and notes.

This Christmas I have asked for a #57 patchwork foot with guide so I can more accurately piece all the 1/4 inch seams in the little quilts featured in your books. (Love them all).

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I'm hoping that Santa will bring me an iPhone so I can come out of the dark ages! Or one of those new light pads for tracing would be nice too.

I would love Santa to bring me a long arm quilting machine but I doubt that will happen. So, realistically, I would like a couple beads for my bracelet and a quilt kit. Thanks for the chance to win. Shuettl@new.rr.com

We don't usually do gifts anymore (long story!), but I did already get the extra small cookie scoop I've been wanting, for making truffles for my cookies trays! Had to get it early to use it! Love that! LOL

And I'm loving that fabric, too! Gorgeous! Thanks for the chance!

Maureen said...

At the top of my list is an Iphone, but I doubt that will happen. I would love to have a bundle of this fabric, it is gorgeous! Guess that would be second on the list.

I made similar boards for my twin nieces when they were younger.

My Christmas wish - to know my sister and her children (2 1/2 year old twins Max & Elly) will be coming home from Tanzania next summer for a visit. I hate thinking we won't get to see them for 2 years.

Rachell said...

My #1 wish is a Supreme Slider. I'm quilting on my little but beloved domestic Bernina, and it sounds like the Slider could really help me.

Then cute boy Rolie Polies or jelly rolls to make quilts for my baby soon to be born.

The memo board in blue is so you Kathy!! I just love it!! My Christmas wish from Santa is to send me a darling blonde daughter from N.Y. to Calif to give her mom a big kiss!!! Life along with improved eyesight couldn't get any better. Carolyn Barnett csbbobbin@yahoo.com

Mi primera petición tiene que ver con mi mayor entretenimiento, ¡coser! He pedido el patrón para hacer The civil war bride. Va ser difícil, creo que hay que buscarlo porAustralia y eso se les escapa a los mios. Pero yo lo intento.
Un beso.

All I want for Christmas is for our house that we are remodeling to be finished so that I can have a sewing room again...everything is still packed while we wait in our temporary rental...no room or time for sewing. I think this is a great idea for the sewing area. Thanks for the chance to win great fabric. Sandi S. in San Angelo, Texas simonswin@suddenlink.net

jirons42 said...

I am easy to shop for - gift cards to my quilt shop or Amazon to buy some quilt books that I would never buy for myself because I know I already have way too many.

audrey said...

I would love some fat quarter bundles this year, something new, different and exciting--I'm not picky.:) Great fabric giveaway. Would enjoy playing with it!

Ineke Platvoet said...

Top on my list is TIME, but I quess this will not be under the tree - so I will have to settle for some new fabrics or the new book of J. Chiaverini in Dutch.
Love the memoboard - thanks for your instructions.
Have a great holiday.

I would like 2014 to be a better year for my daughter and her family. Her husband just got a job after 3 years. They have 5 kids. Catching up after being out of work is almost impossible. I hope next year is a bright one for her family. Thanks for such a great giveaway.

I usually don't have a list of things I want but this year I'm asking for a Reliable iron! :-). Your tutorials are wonderful and Jo Morton fabric makes up a huge amount of my stash. Enjoy the holidays!

Love that memo board!
At the top of my wish list is a Kindle so I can watch my Craftsy classes while I sew, among other things. Thanks for the chance to win!

pens and needles said...

I love your memo board and think I'll just be a copycat and make one for my granddaughter. Thanks for the great idea!
My wish list is short -- I wish for the one thing I've come to love as my favorite gift: picture books of my grandchildren. I love the stack of them on my coffee table from the last five years and hope my daughters continue this meaningful tradition. It's so much fun to easily pick up the book and see how the little ones have changed (in such a short time!) I'd love some new sewing tools and fat quarters and etc in my stocking, in case Santa is paying attention! :)

I want a plug in automobile seat warmer to use in my husbands car in the winter. Now it's like sitting on a block of ice...LOL...love, love, love the new fabric...

susanj said...

Your memo board is terrific-thanks for the pattern.

I would like to get a light box for Christmas-it would make coping appliqué pieces much easier-not having to use the patio doors with patterns taped to them.

Merry Christmas-thanks for the chance to win.

Colleen said...

Great memo board!
On top of my Holiday List is just to have a peaceful day. I know, sounds corny but we don't exchange gifts that way any longer (we buy what we need when we need it) so Christmas is just a day to enjoy together!
Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

pandchintz said...

Santa has employed an elf to help this year - the elf (me!) has bought lots of goodies, put them in a box and told husband and father-in-law to pull out and wrap whichever they'd like to give me (and the rest will be there for my February birthday - same deal!). There's a book, a bag, a sewing basket, wireless headphones........!!

pippirose said...

Lovely fabric! And thanks for the memo board tutorial. I've always wanted to make one, and you've inspired me! For Christmas, I'd love to get a Kobo reader.

Barb Whitehead said...

I love Jo Morton fabrics and love your message board. I can see one on the wall of my sewing room to keep quilt photos and ideas handy for inspiration.

On my gift list this year I asked for a package of 4 one hour massages. It really helps the ache in my shoulders after as long sewing session. And of course anything quilt related is appreciated. Barb Whitehead barb.whitehead@roadrunner.com

scottylover said...

The top thing on my Christmas list this year is a Scottish Terrier puppy. I have wanted one ever since my Scottie died 5 years ago. I know it won't happen, but I keep wishing! On the sewing front, a featherweight machine is top of the list!

Thanks for the wonderful give away!
