3 Winners & the start of a new giveaway!

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Can I just say that you guys are AWESOME!?!  Thanks so much for spreading the word about my new little business.  I think we almost TRIPLED the number of followers of this blog ~ that's crazy!  I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the nice comments you left for me (it actually kept me REALLY busy reading them and trying to respond to them.  I didn't quite get to everyone, but I tried.)  I enjoyed getting to know all of you a little better and checking out many of your blogs/projects.  You guys have really inspired me!  Thanks again for all of your support.  You're so sweet! ♥ ♥ ♥

Although I have been really busy on the computer, I've managed to sneak some time here and there on my sewing machine.  I thought I'd share some photos to give you a little sneak peak at some of the projects I've got going right now. 

This is going to be another Sugar and Spice quilt in 30's red, white and blue fabrics.  I love this pattern because it would be great in any color scheme.  The orignial was made for my little girl in pinks, purples, aquas and greens, but I also think it would be fabulous in Christmas fabrics too. 
Here are some leftover scraps.  How big of a scrap do you save to put in your stash?  I normally would throw these pieces away, but decided to put them to good use (since 30's prints are few and far between in my house).  I've got a nice little section of another quilt going - made out of these scraps.  If you make Sugar and Spice, save your scraps - I'll show you one idea of what you can make with them (soon I promise).

I received my fabric request from Moda the other day so that I could remake Candy Hearts for the Moda Bakeshop.  They sent me Plume by Tula Pink to make it out of.  You should check out Tula's site, if you have not.  She is one seriously amazing designer!  Candy Hearts is at the quilters' right now and should be back today or tomorrow. 
So.  Enough babbling.  On to things you're really interested in (come on, you know that's why you're still reading! :)

Let me tell you who the 3 winners are of the Week 1 Giveaway:

Keep reading because this is where another giveaway is about to begin.  And, I'm really excited about this one! 

Week 2 Giveaway:
One winner will win this: 
A Santorini Layer Cake generously donated by Lila Tueller herself!  She also threw in one of her patterns for the Stella skirt.  Now, she said that I could keep the pattern or give it away and since you all have been SO sweet, I am sharing the love (even though I really want to keep it!)  Oh, and if you haven't heard she is doing a fabulous giveaway on her blog right now (until Sunday, I think.)  To enter to win a really beautiful quilt made out of her new Eden line of fabric, click here.  Be sure to tell her how sweet she is! 

Along with the Layer Cake and Stella pattern, the winner will also receive my Mod Medallions quilt pattern (which is Layer Cake friendly!)  On my Mod Medallions quilt I used Lila's Soiree fabric on the border.  I love that fabric - it inspired the whole color scheme.  So I thought it would be fun to let you guys make Mod M's with some of her fabric too!  Fun huh?

So that's it.  Pretty great giveaway right? 

The rules are the same as last time, but please note that for each entry, you must leave a different comment, because (our friend) the Random Number Generator, is going to pick a winner.  If you combine all of this info into one comment then you will only get one chance to win.

Here are some ways you can get entries:
* leave me a comment telling me what you do to entertain yourself while you sew.
* let me know if you're a follower of my blog
* post about this giveaway on your blog and leave me a link 
* Leave Lila a comment under her giveaway post telling her how awesome she is!  Then come back and tell me you did that.

That's it.  4 possible entries.  I'll pick a winner Wednesday morning.  Have fun!
