Catch-up + a Thank You Giveaway

Well hello, 2013. You're already three days old. This year we've been ringing in the New Year with lots of snow. We've already shoveled more times in the past 2 weeks than all of last year combined. (Those are perfect snow crystals on my coat this morning.) It's pretty, but I definitely enjoy it most when I don't have to go out in it.
We've been wrapping up the holidays by hanging out with out-of-state family, going to basketball games, making trips to downtown Salt Lake City to see the lights...
... sledding and tracking down the gourmet Waffle Love Truck. And trying to put the house back together after all the Christmas hoopla. And zero sewing. I had great plans for a productive few days while my husband was off work to get a lot done, but instead I got a bug that made me feel like a piece of hud for a few days. Not a throw-up-kind-of-bug (thank goodness) but it wiped me out nonetheless. All part of the Christmas holidays, I guess. So now I'm trying to get caught-up and back on track.
And while I do that, I have something for you. I've wanted for some time now to have a giveaway as a way of thanking all of you for the lovely support and encouragement you are to me and to this blog. I have three copies of Moda Bake Shop's Sweet Celebrations book to share as well as Moda fat quarters or pre-cuts to go with each book. To enter just leave a comment telling me something you'd like to see more of in the quilt-blog-world during the next year.

One entry per person, please. Be sure to leave an email address where I can reach you if you are a no-reply blogger. Giveaway open until Sunday, January 6 at midnight MST. GIVEAWAY CLOSED.

Winners are:

Thank you for such a wonderful giveaway! Oh, how I'd love to win! I would love to see more quick little projects, I especially love combining embroidery with quilting. Be especially blessed!
chris said...
Oh, Amy! I'm sorry you've been unwell. My whole family got the flu, despite having flu shots. It's been a rough Christmas break. Hoping everyone in your home and happy and well. Thank you for sharing your talents and kindness. I love seeing your work and learning how to do a little of what you do.
Alanna said...
I'd like to see more giving back to others(thinking of myself for sure!). There's so much talent in this blogging community, and hand mades are a great way to show someone love and compassion. I don't think there can ever be too much of that to go around.

Happy beginning of January.

I would like to see more beginner or easy projects and how to figure out the best way to quilt your projects.

Beth said...

Scrapping quilts, need to use more fabric!

Nikita said...

More precut tutorials for quilts.. like charm packs, and lyer cakes.. I buy them on occassion, and when I do I am always scrambling to find a way to use it in a quilt instead of the regular old square.

Anna F. said...

Your blog was one of the firsts I came across when I started quilting three years ago, Amy. Thank you for all that you share. Your tutorials and writing are easy to follow as well as relaxing and encouraging. You are an inspiration. In the coming year I look forward to more of the same as well as the "keeping it real" stuff.

supersara20 said...

I'd love more paper piecing block patterns.

2lovebirds said...

I would love to see some more smaller (quicker)projects!!! I love your blog and looking forward to reading more... Thank you for this great giveaway!

My favorites are the tutorials for a complete project or a complete process - start to finish. Thanks for the giveaway!

LauraC said...

I would love to see more about the design process and how you decide on fabrics to put together.

Mischelle said...

I would like to learn more about color combinations and tutorials. Thanks for an awesome blog!

Three Baggy P's said...

Ideas for thoughtful gifts are always great...and keep me thinking about making them throughout the year and not waiting until the last minute.

Jennyroo said...

I would like to see some more bloggers sign up to do the scrappy trip-around-the-world quilt. Hahaha, just kidding!!! (Although it is quite a lovely quilt, I understand why so many have been bitten by the bug!). I love to see some pretty photos, learn about upcoming fabric lines, and always am interested in new tutorials for some new-to-me techniques. Happy new year!

Fiesta said...

I so need to learn to to make inset seams

amy g :) said...

i'd love some more great QAL options!

April (Polkadot Sparrow) said...

I like seeing "quilts in action:" quilts on the beds they were made for, or covering the children who snuggle in them. A hotpad next to a boiling pot of pasta, etc. But not necessarily staged. "Everyday" photos. Sometimes it seems that quilts are made in this surreal environment but really, they exist in the everyday. :)

Lamse said...

You are perfect.

Love, Lady D

Cindy said...

I love your blog and love to see what you're making next! I think you do a great job already with the tutorials but I guess it would be more tuts using the pre-cuts. Thanks for such a generous giveaway!

CountryBelle said...

Wow! Thanks for the chance... if I could see one thing it would have to be a magical machine that tells me what to do with my beautiful fabric... I'm soooo indecisive!

MBMathis said...

I'd love to see more single afternoon, projects. There are some times when I love to see a tutorial on a block that can come together to form a full quilt top in 4-6 hours.

Vicky said...

Happy 2013! Thank you for a wonderful blog full of inspiration and beautiful creations. I enjoy all your projects, but would love to start adding hand embellishments/embroidery in quilts or possibly crazy quilting projects? Thanks for a chance to win the book and fabric...the book is on my wish list!

Erin @ Sew at Home Mummy said...

I have been going through my stash and I think I need some quilts with novelty fabrics. I seem to have quite a few and I don't know what to do with all of them. I'm in Utah as well and the shoveling has been intense, it's good to get the moisture though!

Rachel Lynsey Duncan Sanford said...

I'd really enjoy seeing quick holiday gift ideas (and not just Christmas) using needle and thread. I love quilts that include a bit if embroidery and would love some new ideas. And it would be interesting to get a behind-the-scenes look into your creative brain as you work out a new idea. Can't wait to see what's in store!

DJ Shorti said...

I love to read your blog. You have such inspiration. I really enjoy seeing small and quick projects. I also love the quilt-a-longs because it breaks it down into smaller steps that I can get done when I only have snippets of time available. Hope you get well soon. Thanks! Jana

Ruffles and Relics said...

I would like to see more tutorials and smaller projects. Thanks!
tvoyles67@gmail.com

So many good ideas! I always love to see projects for scraps, and miniature quilts are fun, too.

Andrea said...

I don't buy much of anything new, so I'd like to see how to match colors/patterns/fabrics, or cut fabrics I have in my stash which are odd sizes. I'm still a beginner and I started with someone else's stash!

Kathy MacKie said...

Thanks for the chance to win!

Jenn said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I would like to see blogs that focus on the basics.

Heidi Babi said...

I would really like to see ideas for jelly rolls (since the craft/fabric stores where I live seem to have an ABUNDANCE of these), as well as free motion quilting ideas. I don't always have access to a long-arm, so things I can do on my little janome are always of interest.

Anita said...

I would like to see tutorials or projects for small projects, like the zippered pouches last year also maybe something a little more advanced or intermediate quilt projects for quilters wanting to challenge themselves. Thanks for the giveaway :)

Brocha B said...

Honestly, I would love to see anything. I have been out of the crafting world for a good 10 years and just starting to pick everything back up again. I enjoy tutorials and learning anything I can.

Cassandra said...

Pretty snow!! I keep hoping for snow here but we haven't had any yet. :)

I always love looking at quilt photos. They get me inspired to pull out my own work!

Michelle Hudak said...

Precut quickie quilts and I love to see color/pattern pairing options as well as new gadgets to make quilting easier. I could also use some help with patterns.

What a lovely & generous giveaway - thanks :-) I'd like to see more sharing of where everyone buys their beautiful fabrics, especially here in the UK, and in particular, the pre-cuts. LOVE jelly rolls & charm packs - they add to the fun of making quilts!
Xx

Mad About Pink said...

I love your stile so I'd love to see even more tutorials.
happy 2013!!!!

scissor.needle.thread said...

Wow, that's a nice way to start into the new year, thanks for die giveaway!

I am one of the newbies, just handpieced one pillowcase and am still working on my first top (colour wheel), but I really adore all the colourful quilts.
I am not sure what I want to see more.. tutorials are always great, I love bolder graphic designs with a lot of white and contrasts. Also, I am always interested in alternative uses for quilts since Germany is definitely not a great quilting country and one can only use so many pillow cases and bed vocers.
Since we do not have precuts or anything like it where I live (at least not easily to approach) I do not need tutorials that are made especially for precut fabrics.

Best wishes for 2013!

Miška Kloc said...

Hello Amy! I have to say that I simply love your blog!! :-) I'm checking it every day to see if you add some new post. I wouldn't change much on it - maybe just some more sewing, sewing, sewing! And from time to time some tutorial would be graet :-) Sending greetings from Europe and wishing all the best, Míša (Misha.Klocova@seznam.cz)

Mar García said...

I would like more tutorials!

Kathryn said...

Awesome giveaway, thanks! I agree w tutorials, but seriously beginner stuff. I mean, presume I know nothing! Video tutorials are great too.

Kerry said...

Whilst I like quilt alongs and stuff, I really don't have time to do them all even though I would love to. So this year I'd like to see more in the way of tips and tricks rather than full blown projects. I've learned a lot from Sarah Fielke's class on Craftsy already for tricks in applique and learning step down piecing and such and it's really been an eyeopener and got me really excited so I'm desperate for more!

Martha said...

If I see anymore my eyes are going to pop up of my head right as it explodes! But I love all the beautiful quilts, the great tutorials, the small projects. I am constantly amazed at the new ideas. I guess I would love to see a little more traditional work...I miss the old blocks and the hand work. Thanks for the chance to win.

Tammy said...

Amy I would love to see lots more tutorials in blogdom land. Especially some ofthose on paper pieceing and hexagon projects. Love your blog. Your winter pictures are awesome by the way. Thank youf or a chance to enter your giveaway.

I love tutorials, especially for small gifts. I'm always on the hunt for gift ideas. Thanks for all you do, and Happy 2013!

Michele said...

The photos of the lights are just stunning. I'm sure they are more impressive in person. So sorry that you were sick during the holidays but that seems to happen to a lot of people...to much going on and not enough rest are sure ways to get sick. glad you are feeling better.

The quilt blog world is pretty amazing already but I'd love to see more posts comparing products of specific nature such as threads. There are so many available and it is really hard to figure out which ones are best and for which application. I'd also love to see more about long arm quilting....why people chose the machines and frames that they did, all the other supplied needed ect. I'm looking at buying one myself and can use all the info that I can get.

Marjorie Nath said...

I would love to see a basic tutorial on how to make a landscape Wall hanging. I really like art quilts but am afraid to start without a little guidance.

Tamara Oster said...

Happy New Year! I am glad you are well once again - it's no fun to be sick over the holidays. I would love to see more tutorials on machine quilting with a normal home machine as well as some perky fun smaller projects that make great gifts. Thank you for all the great blogs! :0)

Sarah said...

Hi Amy. I'm always interested in projects that use precut fabrics.

Mhairi said...

I would love to see some more small projects that would be easy to create quickly for those oops moments when you realise that you should have posted a gift last week.
And any tips and techniques that you discover during the year would be very appreciated.

barb said...

I would like to see more scrappy quilt tutorials and on making bags/totes by hand sewing. Thank you babscorbitt@gmail.com

Cherilyn said...

Happy new year Amy! I love reading your blog and your quilts are always inspiring. I would love to see more behind the scene of your quilting process. How do you design your quilts? Draw them out on paper or computer? Fabric selection? Quilt stores verses big box stores or online stores to purchase fabric? Tutorials are always fun too. :)

Sarah_L_N said...

I would like to see more EPP, hexies and other shapes too :)

Pontos da Flávia said...

Your quilts are super cute! I would like to see some tutorials or tricks how to build such cute quilt tops! Thanks for the opportunity!

I love ideas for fast quilts that look like they weren't fast. :-)

Laura said...

I love all the pictures you post. Being a teacher I of course love words, but am a little over words when I sit down to relax and catch up on my quilt blogs. I can always count on your blog having the right amount of pictures and words. And your pictures are uplifting to a tired, working mom. Thanks for all you do!

The Glue Spot said...

Not sure my post went through. Easy and fun tutorials and QAL. I made my first quilt with guidance from your website. I hope to win! Thanks for all of your posts and look forward to what you have in store for us this 2013!

gnlenhardt@juno.com

Bia said...

I'd like to see more posts about quilting a big quilt on a home machine.

Alanna said...

I'd like to see more giving back to others(thinking of myself for sure!). There's so much talent in this blogging community, and hand mades are a great way to show someone love and compassion. I don't think there can ever be too much of that to go around.

simplydelighting said...

Being a fairly new quilter, any tips/techniques you share is so helpful!!

HI!
I love to see cute gifts that can be made for teachers and others.

Wanda said...

I love your blog. I'm not sure it could get much better! Just keep up what you're doing. Great inspiration. Thanks for doing a giveaway.

Shelley said...

I would like to see quilt bloggers sharing more about their daily lives...are things going good, bad, does someone need encouraging words and support from their blogging friends. I would like to the quilt blogging community draw closer together as friends...times are hard, jobs are scarce, life is scarey out there and alot of people are living day to day with enormous amounts of anxiety and stress and heartbreak. We can be there for each other!

donnacrafts said...

Just beautiful.. Perfect for spring into summer.

Jeneta said...

I love tutorials that give tips on piecing quilt tops that look like they are complictaed but are actually very simple!

jlk said...

I love a good tutorial, but more than that I love to see how people have used their fabric. Finished projects always inspire me. And, I really hope I win. I wanted this book for Christmas, but didn't get it. Guess I was on the naughty list.

Jamie Grogan said...

tutorials!!!! I'm going to attempt one quilt per month in 2013. :) jamiegrogan@hotmail.com

Alisa said...

I love to see tutorials for fun new quilt tops- but I have to admit that what I would really like is to see more tips, tricks, helpful hints, and designs for actual (regular) machine quilting. I have been sewing for years and can piece the quilts just fine, but then they sit because I get nervous I'm going to ruin my hard piecing work by quilting them myself. Yet paying someone else to long arm quilt them is not an option (too expensive). ;)

correne_johnson said...

I have such a hard time picking fabrics! I would love to read more about how you choose! Thanks for the giveaway :)

ledamewood said...

Deanna said...

Who doesn't enjoy tutorials, but your photography is always so nice that I enjoy whatever you post. Charm packs and a pattern book would be a great way to start the year. Thank you for the chance.

Alisa said...

I left a comment previously, but then realized that it didn't include my email. So this one should have it! I would love to see more machine quilting tips and tutorials so I can finish my quilt tops!

Sew Simple Life said...

I'd love to see someone explain how to create and/or design your own quilt patterns or paper piecing patterns

Well, I am just a beginner. I am taking my first piecing class tomorrow! So, I guess, beginner tutorials.
Thank you for the chance!

First off, I love your blog. It's one of my daily checks. Second, I think more about fabric and design choices would be interesting and helpful. Thanks!

cwhelan at williamwoods dot edu

Carol said...

I would love to see more fat quarter quilts -- not with entire fabric lines, but ones which use up a lot of random fabric stash!

Jocelyn said...

I'd love to see more quick, easy projects for beginners & helpful tips for doing various things (ex. for some reason I have a very hard time cutting long pieces of fabric straight). A simple block of the month or quilt along suitable for beginners would be neat too. Actual quilting tutorials for those of us just learning would be awesome as well....basically any tutorial to help with the basic steps in the quilting process. :) I do realize there are more than beginners around though.

Jan Barnett said...

Tutorials...my fave!

Sharon B said...

I would love to see more small hand applique project. I took a class at my LQS and am now HOOKED! Thanks for your great blog!

txjackson5 said...

Amy, thank YOU for sharing of your time and talents with us! I've only recently discovered the quilting blog world and have been blessed so much with tutorials, info about fabric stores, pictures of your lovely quilts. As a newbie the only thing I can think of to request is...more of all of the above! txjackson5@gmail.com

pippirose said...

I'm a newbie quilter, so I'd like to see more of the basics or tricks of the trade. I get so intimidated, and hesitate to try a lot of the projects because they seem too complicated, while in all reality, they probably aren't! :o)

pippirose59 at gmail dot com

Karen said...

I would love to see more tutorials - whether skill building or quilt patterns. Thanks for all your good work!

Jenny Wren said...

Happy New Year Amy!
I would love to see more "why" in our bloggy world.
Why we do what we do and the steps that go with it! When we know "why", we can be more successful! This will help lots of people learn tips, tricks and the basics. I plan to work on this though my blog. Perhaps "Why on Wednesday"
Those who are interested - come visit please.

Julie Jones said...

I love tutorials, even though a quilt project step by step would be cool to see how you do the whole process.

Erica said...

I would love some more complex project tutorials that would stretch my skill set! (I'm thinking paper piecing, etc.) I know tutorials are so time consuming to write, so I really do appreciate all that you do! This is one of my favorite blogs!

Fast, small projects are always welcome, but I try to get inspiration from most of the projects that I come across. And always appreciate tutorials.

So sweet of you! Um... I would love more tutorials on making different kinds of quilt blocks. I am stuck on square-squares because I have no idea where to go from there. Easy, pretty pieced blocks.

I'd love to see patterns that show which was to press pieces so block to block assembly is better. I take classes at a wonderful shop in San Antonio, Texas, and she always has these on her patterns. I thought this was the norm, but as I follow other patterns I have to change which direction I pressed something to make two seams nest better.

I would love to hear more about how you pick your color combinations for quilts - that is the hardest part for me.

Happy new year!

Camille said...

I'm so new to following blogs, but I would have to add my vote to others who have mentioned tutorials on piecing and ideas for quilts. I would love to see some ideas for guy quilts as I want to make a throw quilt for my nephew who is graduating from High School this year, something he can take to college with him. I also have a daughter getting married. What have people done for marriage quilts?

raineemae said...

I love tutorials as well! Something else I love is talking about fabric. It's something I want to do more of on my blog, but the real fun is reading others' opinions (even on the things they don't like!).

I'd love to see more bees and quilt-alongs! I'm looking for new ways to share my love of quilting/crafting with everyone in the blogosphere. Thanks for the chance!

Lynda said...

what I search for the most are tips and ideas - I am self-taught (like most nowadays) and when I try something new like paper piecing, I start searching and reading for tips. I have never done anything scrappy or improve, I think that this year I will be trying improve...still holding off on scrappy.....

Thank you for the give away. Happy New Year. Tutorials on gifts,bags to give my friends for birthdays are great. Also techniques and shortcuts for piecing.

Julie in WA said...

Scrappy, scrappy, scrappy! More scrappy goodness!
While I appreciate the beauty of quilts made with a single line of fabric, I think quilts that use a multitude of scraps are eye-candy interesting and definitely more challenging! I'd like to see more scrappy inspiration!

Tina Albright said...

Thank you so much for the chance. I love tutorials. I was a hand quilter for a long time and am recently obsessed with machine quilting.

I'd love to see some tutorials for sewing machine tips. I am a beginner, and even though the quilts may not be super complicated, I have a hard time choosing tension, picking a stitch length, and troubleshooting while using my machine :)

I love the open sharing of tutorials and patterns in the quilt blog world. I am so impressed with the thought and effort that goes into them and the "do whatever you want with this" attitude of many of the bloggers. I enjoy seeing the completed photos by happy readers. So my hope is for continued openness and sharing of creativity in blog world.
