Giveaway Day!



Giveaway Day

It is finally here!  The big biannual event we all look forward to.  So many blogs to check out, giveaways to enter, and projects to be inspired by.  Yep, it is Giveaway Day hosted by Sew Mama Sew.








If this is your first visit here, welcome.  If you are already a reader, I have some news to share!  Many of you have expressed you enjoy seeing what I do with scraps. So for 2014, I will be sharing all sorts of tips for scrap storage, quilt inspiration, tutorials for scrap quilts and hopefully a Scrap-A-Long or two.  Whew...Now that it is in writing, I'm committed!  We will be starting slow but if the support is there, I'm ready to help you work through your scrap bins and make some beautiful projects.  


 Here are a few examples of some recent quilts to come out of my scrap bin.  But with so many of you following along, I will be pushing myself to step it up a notch and get even more creative.

But that's not why many of you are stopping by.  I know, just get to the giveaway!  I decided to share some frosty blues and purples with a lucky reader.  Lots of fun designers in this pick.  There are five fat quarters and a regular quarter cut (Kate Spain) in this fun fabric bundle. 



To enter, just leave me a comment letting me know your favorite season.  I love Spring, Fall, Winter, then lastly, Summer.  Even with the below zero temperatures we have been having, I will still take Winter over Summer any day.  Oh, and followers of my blog get a second entry.  Just leave an additional entry letting me know how you follow.  Please make sure you’re not a no-reply blogger (or leave an email address in your comment if you’re not sure). I may not be able to reply to all comments left during the giveaway as it gets a bit overwhelming!  But I certainly will try.
The giveaway is open until December 13th, 5pm PST. International guests are always welcome!  

***Sorry, this giveaway is now closed!  Best of luck to all that entered!*** 

The giveaway winner is Diana of Red Delicious Life.

 Good luck everyone!  And if you have those pesky scraps piling up, you are going to want to hit this Bloglovin' button to help inspire you to give them some attention in the coming year!

I'm really looking forward to your work with scraps this year. It's my favorite way to quilt, so I will be scrapping along with you. I love summer the best because I'm a teacher and I'm off work and actually have time to quilt.

I am a Spring kind of girl. I was born in May - maybe that has something to do with it!!???

Yay I follow :) Happy Monday to you!

Barbara Ensor said...

Seems like in Tx we only have Summer and Winter, but Spring is my favorite, even if it's only a few weeks temperature wise.

Sheryl said...

I'm an autumn girl. I love the colours and the crispness in the air, and the way the last of the summer heat lingers into September but without all the yucky humidity. Spring's a close second, and if the climate here weren't so darned humid I'd enjoy summer. Winter, though, I have no use for. Too bad I live in Canada.

Margie said...

Just found your blog the other day and joined as a follower this morning. Enjoy reading what those who live so close to me are doing. Am just south of you a short distance. We had to go to the airport yesterday and that was not a fun trip. What usually takes 45 - 50 min took almost 2 hours!! Will be watching to see what you do with your scraps as that is usually all I sew with. My favorite time of year would be a toss up between Winter and Spring. Can't handle the heat so the other two are on the bottom of the list even tho they have their good points. Thank You

Fall is my favorite. When the air starts to get crisp and cold in the mornings, it just brings waves of nostalgia. Also, you can't beat the colors of fall foliage.

It really is a toss up between Spring and Fall. I love seeing all the things blooming in the Spring, but I adore the Fall colors so much! I don't mind Winter any more now that I'm retired and don't have to go out in the cold. Summer is definitely on the bottom of my list. I grew up in Florida and moved to Colorado as soon as I graduated in order to get away from the heat. Thanks for the giveway!
