Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day---Quilting

Today is the big Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!  I have two giveaways--a sewing one and a quilting one!  I'm giving them each their own posting to avoid confusion when drawing a winner, so enter for both or just one, its totally up to you.


Quilting Giveaway!!

I'm going to save you some time (so you can get back to commenting for more goodies) and just cut to the chase.  I have for you a great selection of quilting books and a pattern!  I love quilt designs that can be used with a huge variety of fabrics and that have very clear instructions--because I want to quilt!

Yeah, the pic stinks--you try photographing shiny surfaces on a gloomy Oregon May day!


This giveaway includes:

Kaleidoscope by Cluck. Cluck. Sew  (because her patterns are awesome and very versatile)
Show Me How to Paper Piece by Carol Doak  (this one is brief but very clear and will get you going)
M'Liss Rae Hawley's Fat Quarter Quilts by M'Liss Rae Hawley  (versatile designs, could go scrappy)
M'Liss Rae Hawley's Scrappy Quilts by M'Liss Rae Hawley  (great scrappy designs)

I've included links for you to check out the details if you're so inclined, or in case you're not the happy individual who wins but still want them anyway.

I'll ship internationally and the giveaway is open until May 25th, 5 pm (maybe a bit later if I'm still eating dinner).  Please, make sure that if you have left me an email to contact you with--if I can't contact you, I'll have to pick another winner, and that would just be sad.

So leave a comment telling me one quilt on your bucket list to enter.  You're welcome to become a follower (I love followers), but it is not necessary to win.

So, here's another look at what you're commenting for:


Come on, you know you want it!
Come back soon!

Updated 5/25/12:  This giveaway is now closed.  Thank you for participating!  Stay tuned for the winner to be announced.

  72. What a great giveaway! I've never made a real quilt - I've done a few simple baby quilts but that's it - so I guess just finishing *any* quilt would be my bucket list quilt! xo

    ReplyDelete
  73. I am a pretty awful quilter. I just don't have the focus or color sense. These books look like something I could manage, though.

    I have done a few quilts, and the one on my bucket list is the one I have been working on for two years. It's a scrappy hexagon quilt which is currently the size of a bath towel. I work on it in spurts, so hopefully it will be done someday. I keep saying it's a wedding present for one of my daughters (who are 5 and 8). That was funnier when they were 1 and 4. Now, 4 years later, I see exactly how fast time goes.

    Thanks for the chance to win (two such lovely giveaways!)
