Giveaway Day!

Today is Giveaway Day started by Sew, Mama, Sew.



 I decided to participate.  So here are today's goodies.

 Charm Pack of Solid Berry Patch from Connecting threads.  I put two together for a total of 48 charms.
  Charm pack o f Classic Dots from Connecting threads.  Again, two packs together for a total of 48 charms.

With each charm pack I will also send a copy of my Windows Quilt Pattern, so you can make your very own.  The charms will help get you started.



How to enter:
1. You must be a follower. 
2. Leave me a comment (just one) about what your favorite thing to sew is. For example: Lap quilts, dresses, doll quilts, etc.
3. You may indicate a preference for which charms you would like, however I can't guarantee that's what you'll get.
4. I must have a way to contact you.  If you are a no-reply blogger, then please leave an email address.  
5. I will take comments until 5:00 pm PST, Friday Dec 7.  I will then randomly choose two winners.
6. I am happy to ship internationally!

Good Luck.
Check out Sew, Mama, Sew for many other great giveaways.

I'm a new follower. I love to sew quilts mainly, but smaller items like zipper pouches, totes, etc are a nice change of pace! I would be happy with both, but am eying the solids. Thanks for the chance!

I made an I spy quilt for my great niece, it was my favorite project. I look forward to making more. Searching for fun novelty fabrics brings back the kid in me. Thank your for the chance to win. I would choose the polka dots, but would put either pack to good use!

I've been a follower and enjoy reading your posts. Have always loved the pattern, especially how it works up in the light blue. Either fabric pack is great, but I don't have any dots in my stash, so that would be good. Thanks for the giveaway!

I love to do quilts. And no matter what size they start out as, they seem to end up being about twin size.

Ethan and Moriah said...

I can't believe I'm comment #75! (There's no way I'll win this giveaway...) :o) Anyway, I love sewing bags, although my "favorite" usually tends to be whatever I'm working on at the time. I'm about to start kid aprons for our 3 big boys for Christmas presents. I'm sure they'll be my favorite until I'm on the 3rd and sick of it.

Cheri Moseley said...

I just followed you via email and added you as a bookmark! Looking forward to enjoying your adventures!
My fav thing to quilt is twin size quilts. They are small enough to use just at the sofa while watching TV but big enough for a twin bed, or to just add a little to a larger bed. They also are perfect size for back seat of a car..either to catch spills or for hte little ones to bundle with. i love that window pattern.. amazing!!! Thanks for the chance!
