Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! - Giveaway closed and winners announced!

Congrats to Sharon E. [#39] and Mom C. [#136] as the winners of my giveaway! Thanks to all who entered :)



Hi all! Welcome to my little corner of the Interwebz.

For those of you visiting for the first time, I'm Rebecca. I've been quilting/sewing and blogging for almost 3 years now [meep!] and over the past year I've also worked in child welfare, which has caused my free sewing time to take a huge nosedive. Like many of us, I'm still perfecting the balance between life and my hobby, but if you want to see projects from some of my busier sewing days, just click on the Finished Projects tab at the top! I haven't updated it recently because I'm a bad blogger lol.



This is my recent favorite project - it's a quilt that is in the May/June edition of Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting, and it will get it's own post one of these days :)

On to the giveaway!

There are two winners here:



A set of 36 squares cut from my low-volume fabrics that measure 4.5"



and 4 fat quarters of Laurie Wisbrun Don't Be Crabby fabrics


Here's the rules:
-This giveaway is open internationally
-Please leave a comment stating what your next sewing project is and which fabrics you'd prefer. If you are a no reply blogger make sure you also leave your email address.
-You get a second entry for being a follower, so leave a comment saying if you are!
-This giveaway is void where prohibited and will end on May 16th at 5 pm. I will notify the winner on this post and by email on May 18th.


Now go spend some time entering all the other giveaways at Sew Mama Sew! :)
