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 want to learn more about paper piecing this year. I heard there is a skill builder BOM which seems challenging, I may try to tackle that!

Buffy Skolnick said...

I would love to hear more about what types of machines and tools quilters and bloggers use. It seems like a given for those who have been at it awhile but for newer quilters and those looking for a new fresh pep in their step, its good to knwo what new machines folks are loving at all price points, what rulers do you use the most, what are your go-to tools, what are you favorite threads, etc. Thanks! buffyh_6 AT yahoo DOT com

Katy said...

I love your tutorials. I recently just did your bricks in a Christmas theme. I would say more of that! Happy New Year!

lindsey said...

I'd like ideas/tutorials for Christmas early in the year. Then perhaps it will not creep up on me this year!

Quilt Monkey said...

It looks like a lot of others are saying the same, but I'm a sucker for tutorials. Even if I know how to do something, I love to see how others do it. I've been quilting for over 20 years, but I still find new ideas and techniques on people's blogs! Thanks for the chance!

I would love to see more ideas for small projects that finish up quickly. I love to sew but my time is limited with working full time. When I start a large project I often get "lost" and have a hard time finishing it. With small projects I tend to stay "engaged" until it is done. Thanks for sharing all your great ideas!

Martha said...

I love following your blog and seeing your creative process. It's always a bright and cheerful spot in my day. For the new year I would like to see more tutorials and follow along patterns from the quilt bloggers. I learn so much from the tutorials, and enjoy making the items that are posted.

rebecca larry said...

I'm looking for non complicated new quilt blocks to make on a monthly basis. So tutorials are awesome or how to use new designer fabrics with a quilt block -corresponding patterns and colors and such. Some of the more moderns or vibrant fabrics can be intimidating to work with :-)

LindseyAnne said...

I love all the inspiration blogs like yours give those of us who are just starting out - especially when you mention how it occasionally all goes wrong! Makes me feel so much better when I mess up.

Mimi said...

Doreen Gabe said...

Hi Amy, love your blog. I would love to hear one day how you got started blogging about quilting... tutorials are always awesome. I love projects that are scrappy and I'm always on the look out for gift ideas. I like to start my gift creating early. I wanted that book for christmas but santa must have given my copy to someone else. I hope they are enjoying it... LOL :) Have an awesome day.

Linda said...

Hi Amy. I like reading your blog and like to learn about small projects you make or what tools or tips you have to make quilting/sewing easier. I emailed you a long time ago about what kind of spool holder you use to hold your cone shaped spools of thread. I also like your little slices of life thrown in too. Keep up the great work!

Laura K said...

I feel your pain. I have had a bug that has made me feel yucky too. Maybe it is something going around in Utah? I wanted to get up to Temple Square when my folks were here from California. Alas too much to do and not enough time to do it. Plus my dad hates driving in the snow so we didn't get far from home! I also vote for FMQ tutorials. I am a straight line quilter only and would love to try my hand at FMQ. Thank you for such a great giveaway!

Di~ said...

You are doing great just the way you are! :) sounds like a song. Love tutorials, inspirational stories. Thank You for a fun giveaway!

Amanda Cook said...

I'd love to see more teenage boy quilts. I have a boy who's in that tween stage and would love to make him a more mature quilt than the Disney character one I made him the last time.

Lisa F (NJ) said...

I love your beautiful blog and I love this book. It was on my wish list but Santa didn't bring it..... Thanks for the opportunity to win it here! I would love to see more small, done in a very short amount of time type of projects. I have a 3yr old and I don't get much time in my sewing room, which means I have many unfinished projects. I would also love some back to basics type of tips, sometimes I feel a bit rusty! Thanks!!!!

Sewing In CT said...

I'd like to see more group projects - like quilt bees or swaps or something.
I've done some with another blogger, and they were a lot of fun.

LauraRaquel Duran said...

I love blog hops, downloadable tutes ! I think it is great when bloggers add in bits of their lives, feels very friendly that way.

we are expecting a new grand baby in our family this spring, so anything for babies would be great :) ( not just quilts )

thanks

Chelsey Fisher said...

Barb said...

Happy New Year! I also love to read the background behind each project.

Rachel said...

I would love to see some patterns for your flag blocks. I love those quilts you've shown.

Keith and Kimberly said...

Awesome! kimberly.dickson0@gmail.com

VickiT said...

Those pictures of all the lights are just beautiful. oh my gosh! A gourmet waffle truck? OOh and we don't even have an ice cream truck in our town. Waffles off a truck sounds like a fun time. Yum.

I am always looking for great quilt tutorials and especially those which utilize all these precuts I've stockpiled and can't bring myself to use yet. I vowed this year I will use them though so there's my focus for this year.

Plus, the biggest thing I've been keeping my eye out for is a great tablet cover pattern tutorial. One that has the tablet enclosed inside and not with an open top with a elastic closure over a button. I've seen many of them but, they have all been girlie, for lack of a better word. The one I need must be more manly looking as it's for my husband. Help? I'd LOVE to see something like that. I've got cotton fabrics already for this and even some brown leather type fabric as well since I thought I'd make one of each so he can switch off between the two depending on where he's going since the cotton fabric may not be something he wants to take to a meeting at work.

Lexi said...

I love ideas for fast and easy quilts. Happy new year! lexilucas@gmail.com

~Dawn~ said...

Beginner tutorials would be great ~ placemats or table runner.

The Glue Spot said...

Tutorials and QAL. Maybe start a quilting bee for charity. Your website helped me make my first quilt. Love it.

A.J. Dub. (Amy) said...

I want to see more basic stuff. I have been quilting for a few years now, but there are still some things I need help with, like starting and stopping when quilting, burying threads, squaring blocks without losing the seam allowance, etc.

We just got back from Utah and before we left my 3 year old had been praying for snow at Christmas at Nana and Papa's. We sure got it and my kids had a blast playing in and even shoveling it. I was very happy to leave it behind after 2 weeks though. :) You have some beautiful photos!

Heidi said...

Karrie S said...

I love to see what you make, and tutorials are always appreciated. I also like to read informative posts.

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

That snow looks so beautiful! And now I'm craving waffles ;)
I would like to see people making things they love, using fabric they love, and fun patterns! I enjoy tutorials and quilt patterns on blogs but mostly I love getting inspiration from the things people make, learning about how they did it, as well as the mistakes or difficulties they encountered. I like hearing the truth of people's creative lives.
Hope you are feeling much better and Happy New Year to you and your family! :)

Jacklynn said...

I visit 20 or so blogs a week and yours is on the list. I love to see pictures of your projects - I can't get enough, I'm a very visual person. I would like to see some wall hanging size quilts, as I have some ugly walls in my sewing room that need something beautiful. Thanks for the awesome give away!

StacyOK said...

Honestly, the best of your blog is sharing your love of quilting and family-it's so inspiring! I would ask for continued motivation and beautiful pictures!

Amanda said...

I would like to see more binding techniques :-)

Amanda said...

I would like to see more binding techniques :-)

WKane said...

It's silly, but I love to see all the WIPS's become beautiful finished quilts. Since I always seem to have way more WIPs than any reasonable person should, it's nice to see others actually get one completed. And inspiring - great color combinations always get my mind working on yet another quilt...hence the insane amount of WIPs!

whitnerkane@gmail.com

Kelly Wann said...

I would love to see some wall hanging tutorials. My resolution is to learn as much as possible about maching quilting this year and wall hangings are the perfect size to practice on!! Kellywann@gmail.com

Mickey said...

I like to see close-up pictures of quilt blocks. I want to see the pattern. I also like when the pattern (if one is used) is given. And I love, love, love pictures.

Ruthie said...

Howdy and happy new year! Tutorials and gifts ideas are great, but maybe do a session on line. There are so many meeting places on line where we could all meet up and watch. There are chats where people can ask questions as your performing the tutorial on line. You can have mini sessions on line once a week in the evenings would be better for me, you can record them and post them on your blog for people to look at for help later. Hope you like the idea and feel free to email me with questions....

I was going to say, "just keep doing more of the same" because I love all my quilty blogs just the way they are! But, I did read a few comments that made me realize I would also like to see more tutorials about FMQ. I'd love to tackle it, but I'm just so afraid...I don't want to mess up!

Hi! Beautiful photos btw! I'd love to see more short cuts or easy tried & true methods! I like things that look time intensive but are fun & quick to do! I've realized I get bored of the color scheme or pattern after a bit & start itching to do a new project, just in time for the quilting part - hah! :) I tried to fix my non reply (which until reading that post couldn't figure out why I didn't get responses)! But just in case...barknfrogs@yahoo.com
Happy New Year!

Thanks for a lovely Giveaway. Hope you are completely recovered now. We are all trying to throw off horrid colds which have gone on for weeks and weeks! I love looking at other people's quilts for inspiration. Love tutorials and groups such as the Scrappy Trip Along which is crazy at present. All wonderful ideas to keep my quilting braIn alive. Personally I like any scrap quilt ideas as I so enjoy using my scraps ( waste not want not!) Linda on travjonuk@yahoo.com

I love random quilt alongs that pop up like the one going crazy on IG right now. #scrappytripalong. I also love tutorials for new blocks

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.

i would like to see more projects with jelly rolls!

Crystal Sparrow said...

Love the blog! I'd like to see more 1 day projects...sometimes, to refresh yourself while sewing a big project, small projects that don't take long to complete just keep you going!

Manoule said...

since i'm not an experienced quilter yet, i love tutorials of all kinds (piecing, quilting, designing patterns etc). Thank you for all the work you put into your blog!

Kathie said...

I love seeing in progress projects and how the quilter decided on fabrics or the design if its her own.
and any tips she found in making the quilt that can be passed on. thanks for the giveaway! would love to win the book.

Maybe this says too much about my psyche, but I always enjoying seeing people post their flops. We all have them, right? It 's nice to know I'm not alone.

Weezy said...

Thanks for the giveaway. I'm always looking for small project tutorials and photo's, especially for things that can be gifts.

Diane aka cameldiva said...

Happy New year to you and yours.

I would love to see precuts used in the context of modern quilts, whatever that means. I am still trying to define my style and am trying to figure out what makes a piece "modern". Or as some of your readers suggested, make the traditional, complicated blocks less intimidating.

Thanks for the giveaway. maybe, this year, it is my turn to win.

Slowpoke said...

I like your blog just as it is. I like your family stories
and pictures.
Your tutorials are very
clear and just right.Thank you.
Sorry, no room for
improvement. :-D.
I can say what I want cause I never
win these things no matter how great
they are. Gratefully, Luba

I like quilting tutorials. In the quilt-blog-world during the next year, I would like to see more tutorials on hand piecing and hand quilting (NOT big stitch, just plain old hand quilting in a lap hoop). I would also like to see a tutorial on making a crazy quilt (without bling and dingle-dangle stuff that makes a quilt uncomfortable for use). Guess that I feel rather retro at the moment. Thanks for the lovely giveaway as this is a book that would be good to use.

Jenny Faasavalu said...

Have you ever thought of podcasting? I love quilting podcasts. I would love to see more podcasts in the quilt blog world.

Liz - Moments said...

I seriously need to win this book ( and fabric too !) LOL

miamihoney said...

Kerrie Porter said...

i cannot think of what MORE I would like to see but I can say I really enjoy sew alongs. I would love an opportunity to jump in on a bee so maybe that would be nice. I have followed your blog since I started sewing and I absolutly love it! Keep up with what you are doing and thank you for this awesome give-a-way! Hope I win!

Jennifer Lindsay said...

I'd just love to see more tutorials or idea for modern blocks. not necessarily whole quilts but cute blocks that can be mixed around or combined together.

I'm a fairly new quilter and can handle the squares and rectangles. Would love to see some tutorials on triangles and how to make those crazy seams match up. Love your stuff. Have been following you for about a year.

Alison said...

Hope my entry isn't too late. More paper piecing quilts and now I've found them quilt along BOMs.

Thanks for the opportunity of winning such great goodies. Happy New Year
