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'm always looking for those fast projects ... while I LOVE making quilts I never finish them in a timely manner :) thanks for the chance!

linda said...

basic quilting tutorials would be great for me !! thanks for the chance :)))

**MIGNONNE** said...

I'd love to see more projects using pink (my favorite!), pre-cuts(I love how much time these save) and easy/fast quilt patterns. Sometimes I just want a quilt done quickly where I don't have to think LOL! Is that too much to ask? ;-)

Catskill Quilter said...

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 ended up making it larger and not finishing with others -- but I learned alot from seeing the variety within one pieced pattern. Happy New Year!

Amber @ fromtheseeds said...

Would love seeing more projects using half square triangles.. they are so handy and fun!

Anita said...

I'm always happy to see anything on blogs...pictures are a definite must...but tutorials, ideas, suggestions of places to shop, notifications of great sales...all those things are great. =)

Happy New Year!

Kris Meacham said...

As a knitter for the past several years, I'm looking for more quilting inspiration to help me get back into quilting again. Some quicker projects as well as a few more indepth projects. Thanks, I look forward to reading your blog this year!

Jessica Oliveto said...

I love ideas for gifts! Some people are so hard to shop for, and it's much more fun to make something than buy a mediocre gift.

kbzelazny said...

I love easy tutorials, and pictures of other peoples projects. That's how I get ideas! Thanks so much!

Stacey Napier said...

Would love to see more posts on new fabric lines hitting the stores so I can fuel my fabric addiction. Thanks!

Caitlin Loftus said...

I would love to see smaller projects that are good for gifts or quilts that can be done quickly :)

LynCC said...

I would really love to see more free-motion quilt-along skill builders like the ones last year that I couldn't participate in. :)

Izzy said...

I love quilt-alongs and quick small project tutorials that use pre-cuts such as charms.

Barbie Mills said...

I'd love to see more about people's creative processes.

Love the perfect snowflakes.

JenniDMills said...

Would you post to Australia?
I would like to see some interesting colour combination ideas ... something that's a bit out of the box and modern, while still being feminine and pretty.

Debra said...

I'd like to see more tutorials for wall hangings, as opposed to quilts. I love to make wall hangings, especially seasonal ones.

Lisa Henry said...

I'm looking for projects for a fairly novice quilter--and that is my FAVORITE new book!

hueisei said...

I love QAL. Perhaps a modern quilt QAL. Thanks for the chance to win.

sunnieday4u said...

I would love to see some small fast projects but I'm inspired from just about everything.

Mommarock said...

Small quick projects to share (downloadable projects) along with tutorials that you can download to keep and do at a later date as we can't always get to them right away, nor can we always remember where we saw them.

The Gaertegang Homestead said...

I'm always looking for quilts using pre-cuts (charm packs are my favorite!) I'm a busy mom (who isn't) and I love using pre-cuts with a great easy peasy instant gratification quilt top, but looks complicated. Maybe that's asking a lot, but I know it's doable! Great giveaway, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts said...

Well there's plenty of BOMs already on the go, but I do miss the classic block tutorial!

✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ said...

I like to hear inspiration for quilts and a story about them. I also like great photos!

Brittany said...

Maybe it is just me or because I am about to start one, but I want to see recipes for full bed quilts. Especially king size. Yep, I am going to attempt a king sized pinwheel quilt. Wish me luck or that I will stay sane.
Brittany_bratt@yahoo.com

Julie said...

I love projects made with charm packs and really would love to see more mini quilts and/or bags and totes made with charm packs. Thanks for the chance!

Hilachas said...

I'd like to see more quilt-alongs in Blogland. I just love them. Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway.

Joyce said...

I always love tutorials, I'm amazed at how creative some people can be. I have just joined 3 quilt-alongs, which I've never done before....and I'm thinking of maybe looking into joining a BEE....yikes! I also love any kind of bag to make.

Vivian said...

Greetings!!

I don't know about you but in the last couple of weeks I've noticed a slight change in the blogger world I visit...there seems to be more "traditional" with a twist (fresh fabrics) and I'm really liking it.

I know my style is changing, I'm developing my sewing groove, so I am enjoying this new look on the old.

I don't know if it's really changing or if it's just my perception, either way I like it and look forward to more.

Books_Bound said...

Mistakes. :) C'mon ladies, keep it real! ;)

Andee said...

I would love to see more modern stuff..modern BOM, Modern Mystery, etc!

Just incase I'm a no-reply blogger: 4mrsgaskell@gmail.com

Swedish Scrapper said...

I love the variety and range of your tutorials and posts! Just off the top of my head, something more about bags, and gifts, would be nice to see. Thanks for the inspired giveaway!

O My Word!?! said...

Thank you for a lovely giveaway! Tutorials are always wonderful! How about some more knowledge of fabric sales? With shipping and fabric prices going up sales are always a great thing to know about! Thank you!

Jess said...

Tutorials! Bags, quilts, blocks - not fussed, just love learning new techniques :o)

Rie Conley said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! I just found the blog today, but with my Christmas sewing machine I'm sure this will come to be a huge resource of knowledge!

A lot of disappoint little boys but they were to sick to even open presents. I love tutorials especially ideas with all the new fabric that is out this year. Happy New Year Sandra

Leigh said...

I would love to see more crib quilts

Harrysmum said...

I love your pictures of the snow, i wish we had some instead of the never ending rain we're suffering in the UK!
Whilst I love seeing quick projects, I also like the "big" blacks that are around at the moment - finishing at 12" or bigger so you don't need many to finish a quilt!
Thanks for another great giveaway!

Jennifer Holmes said...

Hi! I'm a new self taught quilter, so any tutorials are good tutorials for me! I would appreciate learning some easy gift ideas for teachers, co-workers, etc.

Anne said...

Love your blog and the inspiration you give me. I would love to see more ideas on quilt backs, something so the back is as unique and beautiful as the front.

gccmom said...

I love to see the projects everyone is coming up with...especially small, easy projects.

SallyC said...

Love your blog, I guess I would like to see more quilt blocks but as a quilter with a family I know how hard it is to find sewing time.

Lisa Marie said...

I like to see what you are working on. And tutorials are always good. Thanks for the inspiration.

barbara woods said...

Maureen said...

More projects using precuts would be fun. Thanks!

Linda at Roscoe's Ma said...

giddy99 said...

I love quick and simple projects that are easy enough for a near-beginner, but don't necessarily LOOK like they were all that easy-and-simple. ;) Happy New Year!

Caroline @ Artfully Caroline said...

I would love tips on paper piecing, appliqué and reverse appliqué techniques... lots and lots of pictures of pretty fabrics in yummy colors are enough to make me happy

Magnolia Tea said...

Hi! I just found your blog recently and enjoy your posts. I'm new to quilting so I am learning from anything I read on the subject. I do have a question. Do you foresee any problems with making a quilt using corduroy squares mixed in with lightweight cotton upholstery fabric?
Have a great evening!

Debra Rideough said...

i love everything about bloogs especially reading and seeing pictures of where people live

Marisa said...

Thanks for the opportunity! I think I need less in the blogging world :) Or more willpower to walk away from looking at the beautiful pictures of what everyone else is creating so that I can make something myself!

cherylj said...

I love how impromptu quilts alongs are featured that are no pressure and fun. I also love a good tutorial and when a quilter shows the entire process of quilting including how they picked the colors/prints.

Kate said...

More information and tips on free motion quilting would be awesome. I have moved away from quilting because I get so frustrated that I can't do it beautifully like all yours and other awesome quilters.

Thanks for everything you do share!

ga447 said...

I think I would like to know "A Day in the Life of a Quilter". Thank you for always being there for us.

Thanks for the giveaway,, I like any tutorial, It keeps us all inspired.

I would like to see some mini video directions! Sometimes it's hard for me to picture the process and some motion would give me a little more idea of what I should be doing! Thank you for the giveaway and have a wonderful New Year!

Lizzy said...

I like well written tutorials. Not on your blog, but sometimes I have a hard time following the instructions because they seem to leave out crucial details.

Hi, Amy! So sorry to hear you were sick, but hope you will be back to 100% soon.

SuzyMcQ said...

Thanks for asking everyone for suggestions. What a great way to begin the new year! I too would like to see projects made with precuts as well as quick and easy gift projects as well. Money is tight, so making presents that are cute are a must!

Love your photo of the lights in downtown Salt Lake..so pretty!

scottylover said...

I'd love to see more tutorials on machine quilting on a regular sewing machine and how to adjust the tension so the back isn't all loopy! (Can you tell what I have problems with? :))

sandy said...

I'm satisfied with how things are. I am always grateful to see tutorials and pictures as I am a fairly new quilter. Thanks for the giveaway but I think you deserve something for all the time devoted to your wonderful blog. Thank you so much for such enjoyment.

Donna Hollingsworth said...

First, I really enjoy your blog and find it inspiring and very helpful. I would like to see more tutorials with precuts.

Di said...

Hi Amy, I'm with the others who have asked for more tutorials for small gift items. I'd also love to see more projects for hand-stutchers/piecers/quilters. I love hand-stitchable take-along projects for when my quilt buddies and I get together for a stitch and chat. Looking forward to a great 2013.

Theresa said...

I would like to see anything someone is willing to share. I love being about to share my own sewing/quilting projects and like to see others to add to my inspiration.

Pat V. said...

I can't think of anything more than what's already out there. I would like to see more BOM's than QAL's, but since I've already found two I think I am good to go! What beautiful lights!

born4travel said...

Easy to make projects. And maybe bags. I love bags. :)

Alexis said...

I would have to say that tutorials are one of the best things about blogs. I enjoy seeing how other people do their quilts. I've gotten so many helpful hints that way. Thanks for the chance to win. I really enjoy your blog.

JD said...

I love to see the tutorials and simple tips on how to make quilting easier.

Laura Dickinson said...

Michèle-Renée Charbonneau said...

I love tips and tricks and lessons learned. :) Thanks for the giveaway and a very Happy New Year to you!

true2beeme said...

Paralegal Mentor said...

I would like a bit more help re: putting colors together. This is difficult for me so I tend to follow previous pictures instead of striking out on my own.

ME said...

I'd love to see some more English Paper Piecing! Something other than hexagons. Happy New year, I hope 2013 will be good to you!

Tami C said...

I'd like to see more tutorials for wall hangings or smaller projects that are good for gifts or quilts that can be done quickly :) I have a bare wall in my sewing room and would like to make some small quilts to display on it. Thanks for the chance to win.

elletaylor said...

I would love to win the inspiring book!, Fabric is ALWAYS welcome, as well:). I haven't done a Quilt-a-Long yet and would like to try one with a trusted leader. I also would like to know about color choices

Dora, the Quilter said...

I don't know that there's something I'm not seeing that I do want to see from quilt bloggers. I love getting lost in the beautiful photographs (love yours) and dreaming about fabrics I see (since there really isn't much room for them in my stash). Maybe what I'd like to see is effective ways to use stash in more quilts (I see lots of ideas for using stash in other sewing projects, but I know it's the quilts that will stick around for a while.)

Lisa said...

I would like to see projects that could be done in a couple hours to make as gifts! I love quilts to make always. Happy New Years! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

Karen H said...

How about more give aways? :) Just kidding! A quilt-a-long would be nice. I just finished Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street - well, okay the quilt isn't actually finished just yet, but hopefully in a few days. I always like your tutorials, too - especially for quick and easy projects. Thanks for the chance to win!

Lynn said...

Beautiful lights!!
I'd be happy seeing a bit more ideas/help/suggestions for quilting (the actual quilting part - free-motion, using my walking foot, etc.)
Thanks for the giveaway. I've enjoyed following along with your blog.

Andrea said...

I love seeing mini quilts that teach something along with them. Read: a tutorial for cathedral windows built in with a 36x36-ish quilt that I can be proud of :)

Thanks for this giveaway!

Rachel Booth said...

I really like tutorials and the names of fabric!! you have a great blog and I so appreciate all of your tips!! I basically learned to quilt from you!

nettie said...

I am partial to the smaller, mini quilts that can be made out of scraps and go together quickly and can be displayed in a multitude of places.......
Tutorials are always helpful also.
Happy New Year to you and your family.

Gailanne said...

Hi Amy, and Happy New Year!

Diana said...

I have been following your blog for months. I really like step by step tutorials on anything. Thank you! Diana B.

Sarah Craig said...

It seems like I have the hardest time finding just the right project for a fat quarter bundle - seems funny, doesn't it? But I usually end up petting them for ages before I find a good fat-quarter friendly design. So I'd like to see more of those!

Thanks for the chance to win!!

Kay :-) said...

Amy - I absolutely LOVE your blog! I am a new quilter and have always been intimidated by quilting. Your blog has helped me SO much :-) Your tutorials are clear and well-documented, giving ME the confidence to go forth and try new things... AND end up with a nice finished product as well. I vote for your fantastic tutorials - though I will totally enjoy whatever you do, I am sure of it! Thank you so much :-)

tpott said...

I'd love to see more tutorials for quilts and smaller sewn items using precuts or scraps. Oh, the more pictures the better. Thanks so much for the giveaway. ;-> Toni Anne

Esther L. said...

I love to see tutorials. Especially tutorials that make scary (aka traditional) blocks seem easier. As a relatively new quilter, I would love to try to make some traditional blocks, but they always seem so difficult. Thanks for the great giveaway! Esther (lenahan at zoomtown dot com)

KristyMN said...

I would like to see more smaller projects other than tote bags and aprons. Things that are fun and fast. Perhaps even an easy pattern that we could all follow a few times a year using our own fabric choices and posting up photos of each of our unique choices.

Anda W said...

Thanks for your inspiring blog!

I would say a some posts on where to start if you are just starting into quilting. I am just starting and most of what I have found around the quilting blogsphere is (for the most part) for those who have been quilting for a while. That would be a huge help for me!! Thank you for a chance to give ideas and to win such wonderful prizes!! :) Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Oh I am would love to win a copy! I hinted, but Santa had other ideas. LOL I love the little tutorials you see in blog land, but I'd like to see more than just pillows and placemats... how about some quilted gifts for a spa day? or a little pampering. I love making gifts, but I've done bags, aprons, placemats and need some new ideas. :-) Thank you so much for the great giveaway!!

Chelsie C said...

I would love more baby boys stuff! It's hard coming up with ideas and finding the fabrics.

Lynnet Hardwick said...

What fantastic pictures! I loved the night lights, but I'm sorry you were not feeling great. With four little ones underfoot during the day, my sewing and quilting time is limited to weekends and evenings. I would love to see simple, beautiful, and quick quilts or even some ideas to use all those wonderful excess scraps from previous quilts. Thank you for sponsoring such a generous and delightful giveaway!

margaret said...

I would enjoy something in the biginner area for wall hangings.

Marcia B said...

Would love to see more patterns using scraps! Also tutorials w/quick projects (such as those that use charms or strips)!

Aubrie said...

I would love to see more of your awesome tutorials! In fact, I came on here to use one when I was pleasantly distracted by this post :) grandoldaubrie at gmaildotcom

Regina said...

I like scrappy projects - either big ones that use up lots of scraps -or small but quick ones that you can make from small leftovers.

cllcraft said...

I would like to see more quick and easy projects for kids and teens. I love your easy to follow tutorials, fabric choices, and inspiring photos!

Melissa said...

I would enjoy seeing more projects using precuts. I love jelly rolls and charm packs - anything that saves me time.

I like small projects; makes me feel as though I have accomplished something!

Charlotte E said...

I'd love to see more tutorials and ideas on quilting itself. My goal is to tackle FMQ this year and I'd love some tips. I also want to get more creative with my straight line quilting and need some inspiration.

Georgi Sears said...

I'm still a newbie quilter ~ pieced my first small quilt top, but have yet to finish it! I love seeing the smaller quilts geared for beginners. thanks so much for the chance to win ~ fingers crossed!
