Giveaway Day Spring 2012!


It's Giveaway Day! Hooray! Giveaway is closed, winners have been announced here, and are Janet and Jill.

I participated in this for the first time in December and it was so fun! For those of you who are new here, I'm in my early 20's, taught myself to sew on the most basic Singer out there, and love to quilt. One of my 2012 sewing resolutions was to start making clothes, so I've dabbled in that here and there as well. I love the online quilting community because I don't know anyone my age who sews [although at this very moment I'm overseeing my friend at the cutting mat as I teach her how to make her very first quilt].

Here's a mosaic of some of my recent finishes:

I actually have multiple giveaways today!



The first is U.S. residents only, and is a bundle of leftover fabric from my quilt that I wrote about yesterday for Bloggers' Quilt Festival. From left to right: 4 DS Quilts prints from Joann that are about 9x34" and a blue Painters Canvas that is approximately the same size. Then you will also get 4 pieces of Summersville that are around layer cake size, give or take an inch or two. Two of the pieces have been cut from my pieces that were colored by me with fabric markers. These will not bleed or wash out. I've tested the markers and the color does fade just a teeny tiny bit. And yes, the markers are neon.

Picture and pattern are from Nova at A Cuppa and a Catch Up

For international readers I will be giving away the Nesting Fabric Bowl pattern by Nova of A Cuppa and a Catch Up. I would like to note that she's not sponsoring this and that I am paying for it myself. So I will pay but the pattern will come to your email address. I've made items from this pattern and it's very nicely written [although I haven't had a chance to blog about them yet! eep!]. And I will also include my fabric? must.stash. pattern!

Rules of the giveaway: Giveaway is closed, winners are Janet and Jill
-Leave a comment about your favorite upcoming line of fabric that you're waiting for the release. For me personally I'm so excited about Seaside by October Afternoon, Simply Color by V. and Co. and Cuzco by Kate Spain.
-Please make sure your email address is in your profile or listed in your comment. No reply bloggers will not be able to win :(
-Note if you are a US or an international reader so I know what prize to award
-Giveaway will be open until Friday May 25th at 5 pm Eastern Standard Time
-Winners will be announced by the 27th!

Thanks for stopping by, and good luck on all the giveaways! :)
