Giveaway Day!

Were you aware that today is Giveaway Day, thanks to Sew, Mama Sew ? Woo-hoo! This is my first time participating and I am SO excited.

So I have a little something I’d like to giveaway:
A charm pack of Arcadia by Sanae for Moda. Yummy stuff.
I have a left-over Charm Pack from making this quilt for some lucky, randomly-drawn commenter.

Just leave a comment, and if you want, leave a link to your favorite sewing/quilting project. I’d love to see them! This giveaway is open until Monday May 31 at Midnight MDST.

    Oh, what a great charm pack. I’m in love with charm packs right now. I have so many ideas in my head right now of patterns I would love to design, but it seems that the quilt stores near me haven’t gotten into the charm pack fad yet. <br /><br />My most recent, favorite quilting project was the bento box top that I just made… I had been dying to make one.

  2. says

    Lovely colors! Your’s is the first of the Giveaway Day that I sign up for….Thanks for participating. I joined the oldredbarn sew along; so that’s my latest project going. Got all my strips cut; using batiks and I’m only using stash…no going out buying new stuff!

  3. says

    Hi Amy! I’d love to enter you’re giveaway. What a fun idea but, I missed the boat on this one. Maybe next time.

    I’ve been meaning to buy some Arcadia ever since I saw your quilt. Would love to attempt something like it.

  8. says

    I love that fabric, but even more I love the quilt kit I just received from my etsy order from you. How much I needed that break in designing – I just sat down and pieced it together, and it looks so cute! Please keep me on your list to notify when you make more quilt kits to sell! :)

  18. says

    That quilt is beautiful! The fabric you used is gorgeous. I’m hoping to make my first quilt this summer. I hope it turns out too, because I don’t want the fabric I bought for it to get ruined.

  28. says

    Your quilt is beautiful! I am just a sewing beginner (had my machine for less than a year) and have not done any quilting yet. I’d like to make a patchwork duvet cover as a graduation present for my cousin. She just finished at the US Coast Guard Academy, and will be stationed in Kodiak, Alaska for the next two years. She will finally have her own place (they dorm all four years at the academy),

  53. says

    You have made some lovely quilts. One day I hope to be as skilled as you. I only just started and have made one quilt and several outfits for my daughter. More importantly I’m becoming a fabric addict!

  54. says

    Nice quilt. Would love to win the fabric. <br /><br /> – great sewing for others site. Just completed dolls for orphans.

  55. says

    I made a coin quilt for my sister. I haven’t blogged about it yet, because I haven’t given it to her yet. Check back in a few weeks to see the final product!

  56. says

    I’m on flickr as ‘momtooandz’. Check out my projects. I’m not sure which one is my favourite. I think my boys’ pjs. I’d love to play with those fabrics. Count me in!

  57. says

    I would as a beginner quilter love to win this. You probably have more than enough suggestions of projects already, so I won’t link my favorit :-)<br />You can contact me via a comment on my blog or the email provided there.

  58. says

    I’m actually in the middle of using Arcadia for a quilt for my high school best friend who is getting married. I really love how you used it (bit different from my pattern) and I could actually use another charm pack to complete this!

  59. says

    That quilt is so beautiful! I don’t quilt yet, but I am itching to try my hand at one for our bed. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  60. says

    What a great giveaway! I am away from my own computer so don’t have the link, but googling will find it: Old Red Barn Co is doing a fantastic quilt along, and she’s also giving away prizes as she goes! It looks like it will be a great quilt for beginners, too. Thanks for the chance at winning your giveaway.

  61. says

    I love that collection! I’m not blogging my sewing right now, so I can can’t give you any links! but your quilt is FABULOUS!

  62. says

    Arcadia! I’ve been eyeing this fabric for weeks. Painted the bedroom orange–yep, orange–this January, and the colors in this collection would make a perfect bed quilt.<br /><br />My most accomplished project (though maybe not my favorite)? A still-in-process scrappy kaleideocope quilt for my brand new niece.

  63. says

    Um, aside from loving this fabric, could you PLEASE post a little something on that quilt? <br /><br />(or maybe you already did? I am off to scour your blog)<br /><br />I MUST HAVE THAT PATTERN!!

  64. says

    Beautiful quilt! I just made my first one but I didn’t hand sew the binding. I really want to make a little quilt for my best friend’s baby. That fabric is great!

  65. says
