SMS Giveaway Day!



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





This will be my third year participating in the event.  As I visit everyone's blog, I always find new sites to follow.  If this is your first time here, let me share a few things with you before I get to my giveaway.


Quilting is more fun than Housework

Every Sunday I host a linky party called Oh Scrap!  Each week you can find lots of inspiration to help you keep on top of the scrap bin.  From quilts to pouches to rugs - there is tons to explore.  If you have scrap projects, feel free to join in the fun!




I also share my Scrap-A-Palooza series of quilts.  Almost every month, I share my process in making a quilt from my scraps. Each quilt is broken down into different parts so if you want to sew along, you are able to.  I not only share my finish but I love to feature the quilts from others who are using the same patterns to make their own quilts from scraps.  You can check out all the quilts by visiting the Scrap-A-Palooza Gallery page.  Here are a few examples of some of the quilts made so far.



 
 
Lately, I have been busy getting a number of my original designs written into patterns.  If you are looking for some fun and easy patterns, be sure and check out what I currently have available.  I hope to release a few more in the very near future.
This quilt is made from my Wiggle Time pattern.

So let's just get to the reason all of you are here!!  This time I decided to share some dreamy shot cottons with one lucky reader.  The winner will be chosen randomly.
A total of 10 fat quarters are included in this sweet little bundle! 







To enter, just leave me a comment letting me know what you love about springtime.  I love daffodils, sunny mornings and all the bird activity in my yard.  It is probably my favorite time of year.
And because I so appreciate my followers, 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 commenter (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 May 10th, 11pm PST. International guests are always welcome!  

***Sorry, this giveaway is closed!***

Congratulations #19 Anita (Who blogs at Quilt in a not-Shell)

Quilting is more fun than Housework...


Good luck everyone!  And if you have those pesky scraps piling up, you are going to want to follow along to help inspire you to give them some attention!
