A little Holiday Giveaway

I’m kicking myself for forgetting to sign-up for the Sew Mama Giveaway Day this time around. But then I realized it didn’t have to stop me from having a giveaway anyway – and this way it only goes to my regular ‘peeps’ as a thank you for kindly returning from time to time to this kooky little blog. :) (Even putting up with my whiney posts like the last one.)

So here goes: for this giveaway I am offering a free PDF copy of the Retro Christmas Quilt pattern (which is also available here) and to get you started on your own collection of Retro Christmas fabrics I have 3 fat quarters of retired Alexander Henry and Michael Miller retro Christmas prints.

You know the drill. Just leave a comment to be entered. And thanks again for being the lovely people that you are.

POST EDIT: Giveaway ends Saturday, Dec 18th at noon (MST). Winner announced Sat night!

This weekend I’m going to share a couple of last minute Christmas present ideas. See you then!

    Those retro fabrics are fabulous. I&#39;m sure they would love to come to my house in Michigan for Christmas! And I seriously love the quilt pattern. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love the new look of the crisp white quilts popping up in quilting blogs. LOVE this white quilt with all the holiday fabric. Thanks for sharing the picture. Miriam

    I already have the quilt pattern–I&#39;m enjoying making my own Christmas quilt, but I&#39;d love to win the fabric! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. says

    Thank you Amy! I love reading your blog and feel a kind of &quot;kinship&quot; to you as you live in Orem…right where I grew up! Your prints are darling and your quilt is stunning.

  6. says

    Oh, I just love those prints! I bought the one on the very right from fat quarter shop and I&#39;m so enamored of it. It will be perfect in my retro christmas quilt, which I&#39;m planning to make sometime next year with your pattern. I didn&#39;t notice that you had it in your retro christmas quilt. Now I&#39;m even more excited about it! Thanks for the giveaway!

    What great fabric, it really makes this quilt POP! I&#39;ve always given away my Christmas quilts and I would love to make this one and keep it for myself!

  8. says

    I have decided that I want to make my mom a Christmas quilt for next year so I&#39;m on the hunt for fabric. This would make it oh so easy to do! thanks for doing the giveaway!

    The fabrics remind me so much of my childhood. Looking forward to your last Christmas present ideas.<br />Problem is, of course, I need to start these things in July. Work sort of gets in the way along with everything else. Joelle

  10. says

    I&#39;d love to make that quilt!!! And I kind of like the idea of an &quot;after giveaway&quot; giveaway to your loyal readers!!! I&#39;m going to do the same thing later this month ;-D Thanks for the inspiration…

  11. says

    I adore the traditional colors and prints of Christmas! How cute are these! My boys would love this :) <br />Thanks for the chance!<br />Happy Thursday!<br />hugs, margie

  12. says

    I love your pattern Amy and especially enjoyed the one you made for your in-laws and showed the other day. I shared the stocking tutorial with friends at sew night..wow! so Easy!

  13. says

    After seeing all the fun vintage Christmas fabrics this year, I am purposing to set some Christmas fabric aside each year. It won&#39;t become vintage for quite some time but one day… ;)<br /><br />Thanks for the giveaway!<br /><br />Jennifer :)

  14. says

    I just found your blog the other day, but I have already spent too much time perusing your posts, wanting to learn how to quilt. I also added your blog to my list of favorite blogs on my own blog :)

  15. says

    thanks amy, those fabrics are just too too cute! i really really am challenging myself to have one, if not two christmas quilts done for next year!! your pattern is a fabulous place to start!

  16. says

    Awesome quilt – I don&#39;t have a holiday quilt yet, and would love to win this. I love your blog (I&#39;m a follower through Google Reader). As a new sewer/quilter I really appreciate your quilting tutorials. Thanks!!<br /><br />megancparsons(at)gmail(dot)com

    I forgot to sign up for the Sew Mama Sew giveaway Day too! But I&#39;m having one soon anyway, just like you.<br />Thank you for the chance to win this great giveaway!

  18. says

    a LITTLE giveaway… are you NUTS?!? This is HUGE! I was so sad when you sold out of your kits (which was faster than fast by the way!) This is the most beautiful Christmas quilt I&#39;ve seen in a long time and I would so love to make one… ESPECIALLY with those fabulous fabrics!!<br /><br />so… please pick me!<br /><br />and… thanks for the chance!

  19. says

    Love the prints!! I have been wanting to start a stash of Christmas fabrics but have to put nearly everything crafty on hold. I am due any time with my 4th baby. Hopefully next year!!! I love the quilt!! Just my style, darling, light and relatively simple!

  20. says

    Okay, that quilt is Gorgeous! I would love some new (old) fabrics to add to my Christmas stash! Thanks for the giveaway!<br />xoxo,<br />Amy

  22. says

    I love these retro Christmas prints! I&#39;m making an advent calendar out of some other retro Christmas fabric that totally reminds me of my grandma. Love it!

  23. says

    I love your quilt and those fabrics would be the perfect start for it!<br />I forgot to sign up for the SMS giveaway day too. :S What I forgot was the email by Saturday.

  24. says

    Please enter me, too. I have been collecting christmas fabric for the last 2 years but never got around to making a quilt with it because the time before christmas is crazy! Maybe if I start right after christmas when I am still in the mood, I wil get it done until next year :)<br />Thank you for the chance!

  25. says

    I&#39;m pretty &#39;retro&#39; myself as I begin my 70th year, and I remember when Christmas fabrics were few and far between. Your FQs and your pattern are just lovely. I&#39;d be happy and proud to make that Chrismas quilt or any other, from them. Thanks for the giveaway. Hugs, Finn<br />Finn922000@yahoodotcom

  26. says

    Love the blog, I am a new follower still but I commented on the stocking and I love all your little projects, hopefully I will have a blog some day. Thanks for the chance to win!! :)

  27. says

    What a fabulous giveaway. Thank you. My first and only Christmas quilt was the second quilt I ever made: a modified pineapple using all bird prints in the center. The retro prints and the pattern would make a great 2nd Christmas quilt, if you know what I mean.

  28. says

    I LOVE your retro Christmas quilt! I&#39;ve been planning on making a couple of Christmas quilts, and this fabric and pattern would be great for that.

    The angel in the middle fabric reminds me of a book I had when I was a little girl called &quot;Angel Baby&quot;. How the newborn brought home was really an angel. What a nice memory. Love your blog and am in awe of how frequently you post your magic for us!
