Giveaway: Freespirit Designer Solids (and Other Basics) Sample Card Giveaway

I think the universe is conspiring against me posting to True Up lately — last week I had a sick little boy that needed tending-to, now this week I have his crud, and we’ve had two days of major power outages — day one because windstorms, old trees, and power lines don’t mix, day two because the entire state of Texas had to undergo rolling blackouts (and of course our neighborhood seemed to get more than our fair share of darkness).

But I want to make up for the sparseness today (and fight all this grayness and chill) with a pretty spectacular giveaway. FreeSpirit has sent me two sets of sample cards of their new Designer Solids and other basics collections — a beautiful, saturated assortment of colors meant to coordinate with their designer print collections. I am reaaaaalllly tempted to keep a set for myself, but I love you so I want you to have them.

As anyone who frequently uses solids, you know that samples are extremely helpful in planning projects and purchases (especially online purchases). And the sample cards are not available for retail purchase! I’ll try to convince them to sell a retail version, but in the meanwhile, this will be the only way to get your hands on them.

Here’s a rundown of the tonal basics:

Beads — a small polka dot. 25 colors.
Houndstooth — the classic weave in print form, which I can’t help but see as diagonal space invaders. 25 colors.
Twine — like a beautiful mess of string. 25 colors.
Dapples — your basic mottled tonal print. 50 colors.
Fresco — like Dapples, but at a larger scale and more defined areas of color. 25 colors.
Instincts — almost like a tiny animal print. 25 colors.
Pinwheels — little curlicues over a Dapples-like background. 25 colors.

Just leave your comment on this post, and I’ll draw a winner randomly next Thursday, February 10, around 10am Central U.S. time. Two winners will receive a solids sample card and one each of the other seven basics collections. Thanks to FreeSpirit for providing these lovelies!

    I love this giveaway! I use a lot of solids and it’s so hard to order online without being able to see the true colors.
