SMS Giveaway Day

It is that wonderful time again!!  The big biannual event we all look forward to in December.  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.








Before I get to the giveaway, I thought I would share a few of the projects I have written about on my blog over the last 6 months.  I have a regular series called Scrap-A-Palooza.  Each month, I walk my readers through my process in making a scrap quilt from my scraps.  You can check out the quilts we have completed this year by visiting the Scrap-A-Palooza Gallery page.  Here are a few examples of some of the quilts made so far along with some cute buckets I made to hold my scraps.




So let's just get to the reason all of you are here!!  I decided to share some of Moda's April Showers collection by Bonnie & Camille with one lucky reader.  The winner will be chosen randomly.



A total of 5 fat quarters are included in this sweet little bundle! 


To enter, just leave me a comment letting me know if you have sewn any gifts for the holidays.  I haven't even started with my gift list so I guess I am looking for ideas!  
And because I so appreciate those who follow along with my projects, you get a second entry.  Just leave an additional comment 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 Friday December 12th, 5pm PST. International guests are always welcome!  

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

Congratulations Catskill Quilter!  Your package is on the way!! 



 For another giveaway...

if you are visiting before December 11th, you still have time to enter to win a free copy of my Wiggle Time pattern over at Mountain Quiltworks.

If you would like to buy the pattern (or at least get it on your wishlist), you can find it here in Craftsy or in my Etsy shop.  If you do go ahead and buy the pattern and end up winning the giveaway, no worries, I will just refund your money!

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






 Good luck everyone!  If you are interested in more ways to follow me, you can find me on Facebook, Pinterest, Bloglovin', Feedly, Instagram, Google +, or get my blog sent right to your email inbox by entering your email address on the right sidebar!

FYI - Just informing you this post contains affiliate links.

Finishing up the quilting on my Grandson's quilt and have made some fabric bags and wrappings that I am also very happy about.

lalaluu said...

I have completed a cross-stitch of my dad's Cessna 142 that has taken me about 10 years to complete! I don't have time to frame it before Christmas, but I'm going to take it home anyway. The plan was to surround the cross-stitch with pictures of him with his plane, and pics of the details of the plane. I plan to present the cross-stitch, and then get it to a local frame shop so he can pick it up when it's ready in the new year.

Diane Beavers said...

Cynthia, I've sewn or quilted almost all my gifts this year. Wristlets, koozies, pouches, totes w/makeup bags inside. Surely you have scraps to coordinate any of these. And pillowcases, yes, seasonal ones...make 4-5 for a special friend to change up when the season changes. Thank you so much for your generous giveaway.

gpc said...

I've sewn scarves, totes, zipper bags, baby blankets, burp pads, and pot holders . . . and have dozens more to go, but my machine broke today -- eeek! --- so I am desperately looking for a used machine so I can get back to work!
