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 always love tutorials, and suggestions for gifts to be made! I realized recently (with the excitement over the "many trips around the world" quilt) that it is SO much fun to see different quilters' interpretations of pieced quilts. I cannot think of how to implement that, however, unless you do a quilt along. I have participated in only one — and liked the quilt so much that I

Although I love your blogs and find the photos to be excellent, have you every considered offering short instructional videos? They are fairly cheap to produce and would be a great way to demo specific techniques. Feel better soon and Happy New Year to the whole family!<br /><br />Susan Rink<br />srink100@yahoo.com

    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.

    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 &quot;keeping it real&quot; stuff.

    I like seeing &quot;quilts in action:&quot; 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. &quot;Everyday&quot; photos. Sometimes it seems that quilts are made in this surreal environment but really, they exist in the everyday. ๐Ÿ™‚

    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.

Like how to do the binding, and the quilting process, or what&#39;s the best batting to use, or different quilting processes like applique and paper piecing. Thank you SO much for the chance to win such an awesome prize!!

Since I always seem to have way more WIPs than any reasonable person should, it&#39;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!<br /><br />whitnerkane@gmail.com
