Sew Classic Sampler - A New Pattern and [AWESOME] Giveaway

Saturday, March 2, 2013


I am so thrilled to finally announce the release of my newest pattern!



Ever since I saw these fabrics I knew I wanted to design a quilt with them.  I fell in love with them when Sweetwater first posted about them on their blog HERE.  I mean, what could be more perfect for all of us quilters than fabrics that are named and designed after sewing and quilting motifs?!? 




With fabrics called "Sewing Guide", "The Bias" and "Pinking Shears" I knew that whatever I designed needed to be classically quilty.  

Thus ~ my "Sew Classic Sampler"!

It was a blast to make and I think this pattern is perfect for all skill levels.  It's  Jelly Roll and Layer Cake friendly (whoot whoot!) and focuses on some of quilting's most classic quilt blocks.  Instructions are included for using pre-cuts or yardage so you can do whatever works best for you!  




This pattern teaches three kinds of piecing (regular, paper and template) as well as a little applique!  And seriously, it's a great pattern for you beginners out there!  Trust me :)



I've designed the pattern to be a 12-month Block of the Month pattern but you can go at whatever pace you'd like if you're doing it on your own.  If you're a store owner and looking for a new BOM ~ shoot me an email for wholesale information.


 
The blocks in this pattern are some of my favorites ~  
Dresden Plates, Granny Squares and Pinwheels (just to name a few).  
I hope you like it as much as I had fun designing it!

So without further adieu~ 
I want to announce a FANTASTIC giveaway!

The prize package retails at a $70 dollar value!!!
It includes one copy of this 12-month Block of the Month 
Sew Classic Sampler 
pattern and
10 Mama Said Sew Fat Quarters
(donated by the super sweet girls of SWEETWATER!!!  Thanks girls!!!)



Here are the rules:

1. First, you must be a follower of my blog. 

2. Second, you must leave contact information or have an email address connected to your blogger profile.

3. Third, leave one comment only - telling me what your favorite quilt block is (generally speaking).  And, if you care to tell me what you think of my Sew Classic Sampler you might just get a few extra brownie points :)

4.  The giveaway will end Wednesday night and the winner will be announced Thursday morning.

 
So.  I think that's it.  Thanks for playing everyone.
And good luck.

~Amber

  14. I love this - ESPECIALLY a pattern that plays to the precuts! My favorite block is like a favorite song... whatever I happen to be working on. I'm doing a tulip block right now for a baby quilt and am loving it. I was on a 'little houses' kick for a while... before that I was infatuated with pinwheels.

  32. I love the Dresden block..and the Log Cabin....but to tell you the truth; I don't actually know my favorite. I like so many!! Thank you for this chance.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Very creative!! I love your take on a more traditional quilt style (my favorite block, BTW, is a traditional star, or whatever you want to call it) with a twist...modernish (if that's even a word!) fabric! I've wanted Sew Mama Sew from Sweetwater for so long, but it's always out when I go to various LQS's. I sooo want to make my wonderful MIL a quilt from this fabric!

    Wonderful job!!! Bravo!!! Simply beautiful!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. That is absolutely stunning!! I LOVE the fabrics and all of the blocks you used to make it. My favorite block in a sampler like that has to be the pinwheels. They give so much movement to the quilt. Beautiful quilting too!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've never done a quilt like this one, but I'd like to try it! Your work always inspires me!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Great pattern! Love all the different blocks. I have a strong leaning towards star blocks...and really any star blocks!

    ReplyDelete
  50. This quilt is awesome! I recently finished a king size quilt for my daughter by sweet water and fell in love with their fabric designs. The pattern you have compliments their fabric and would gonzo well in my bedroom. Red is my favorite color and I have custom curtains I made that would go perfect with your quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love the log cabin, and the Dresden plate is a close second. This is a beautiful sampler, I think because of the limited color scheme. I am also a follower.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I follow your blog! I love the Ohio Star--mainly because it's my home state. I adore the fact that you made this quilt to be a BOM. I readily admit it would intimidate me to try to take it all on at once, thinking about doing it one block a month makes it so much less scary. It's a beautiful quilt--great job!

  56. It's beautiful! I meet all the criteria for entering...so exciting! That fabric is lovely too. Thanks for sharing.

    I really love wonky blocks...I can't say I've got a specific one, but any block you can twist and turn, so that it doesn't matter whether or not it's perfect sounds good to me.

    I'm also really loving Granny blocks...and I plan to make a quilt of my own...the cutting has begun, but progress is slow. =) Thanks again.

  57. Your sampler is breath-taking and classy!! My favorite block is the pinwheel, it is simple and fun! I am a long time follower!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I am a follower, but picking a favorite block is difficult. I love applique of all sorts, I love log cabins and the variations of it; plus I love any type of star block. I can't pick just one block.

    ReplyDelete
  59. My favorite blocks are stars, not very original but always make me smile. And your red, white and black quilt is wonderful. The solid black horizontal sashing it brilliant. Congratulations.

  78. Hi Amber! My favorite quilt block (if I have one) would be the log cabin. It was the first one I made 23 years ago.
    I love your new quilt! I have always wanted to make a black/gray and white quilt with a little splash of color (red is my favorite color). And the polka dots...well...I think every quilt should have some polka dots in it somewhere (I try to put some in every quilt I make). They are so happy!
    Thank you for sharing on your blog. Sounds like you are a busy mom!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Love, love, love your sampler pattern. I have a little bit of Mama Said Sew that I have been saving and this would be the perfect use! I follow your blog, have my contact info on my blog profile and my favorite block is the Dresden Plate.

  91. I am a follower. I love your star blocks with the pinwheels in the middle, if that's what they were. I'm a newer quilter. When my husband saw that fabric he asked what in the world would you do with that fabric. I'll be showing him bright and early, and I can guarantee he'll love it. He loves pieced quilts, and is a quilter too. He just has no imagination. My e-mail in case in cdahlgren at live dot com. Love, love, love, your quilt.

  119. You are right, this IS an AWESOME giveaway. Favorite block: the granny square. Your quilt is just breathtaking!! I am a follower too!

    ReplyDelete
  120. What do I like about your sampler? Everything. I especially love the color scheme (my school colors) and, don't laugh, the setting. Samplers often are set with a consistent setting block or unpieced square or they're done with sashing around every block. I love that you set the blocks in columns with sashing between. I like that you repeated several of the blocks to make the sampler look a bit less like a sampler. Fabulous job.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I love the variety presented in your sampler. There are some blocks I've done and not perfected (pinwheels) and some I've never done (dresdens)! I'm eager to dry them all. Your quilt is positively striking!

  122. I love your sampler and your choice of fabrics. I love Dresden Plates, no matter what size, I just love them!

  134. As usual, you've created another winner! Love the fabric, too! I'm a faithful stalker (Oops, I mean follower) who just loves your patterns. As a matter of fact, I'm teaching the Twisted quilt in May at a LQS and am so very excited. I've made two versions already and have picked fabric for a third because the others are spoken for after the class. Anyway, my favorite block would probably be anything starry. Thanks again!

  140. This looks awesome Amber! I run a BOM program at our local quilt shop and this might be next year's project! I love how you have incorporated so many different techniques into one quilt. If I had to choose a favorite block, it would be a tie between the Dresden plate and the Star block with the pinwheel in its middle. I'm really excited to see your new BOM quilt!

  142. I have seen many quilts made of this fabric line, the different combinations continue to amaze me in the way it can change the feel of the project. The combos you have you used are lovely, the dresdens are my favorite. I live in CA, but today I will be visiting the quilt shop in CO that this line is named after. I follow your blog, I love every line of fabric Sweetwater has designed - I am a true fan.

  143. Flying geese and log cabin are my favorite but then pinwheels are right up there too. I truly enjoy the fabrics you're using. Very lovely. I'm finally getting into the "grays". Taken me awhile but once it grabbed me I'm off and running!

  145. Amber this is beautiful! I love that you did whole rows of some blocks it gives it some order. My favorite block is Dresden plate and lately Churn Dash has really caught my interest. I have been a follower of yours for quite a while.

  146. I absolutely love your sampler pattern and what a great fabric choice - Mama Said Sew is such a favorite of mine! My favorite quilt block would have to be either a star block or Churn Dash. Thanks so much for the wonderful giveaway chance and congrats on the fabulous pattern.

  147. It is lovely and I particularly like the pinwheels but I know that the dresden plate row had to be the most challenging and it looks perfect -- kudo's to you !}

  148. Your sampler looks amazing... So many cutes and fun blocks. My favourite block is probably the log cabin, but I also love granny squares, the churn dash block and the carpenter star. Thank you so much for a wonderful giveaway!

  150. I love the sampler, especially in the fabrics you chose. It has all the charm of a traditional quilt, and a modern twist. And it's complexity keeps the eye moving.If a person walked into a room with that quilt in it, they wouldn't be able to take their eyes off it. My favorite block is drunkard's path. I love the contrast of curved and straight edges. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  151. What a striking quilt. Absolutely beautiful and love the colours you used. My favourite block is the Dresden Plate one. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway.

  153. My favorite block is the scrappy trip around the world right now. That changes every time I learn a new block so it is hard to say what it will be next week. I belong to a block of the month class and we learn new blocks every month. I would love to make this sampler quilt and the fabric choice is awesome. Oh, I am a follower of your blog.

  157. I love it! Sampler quilts are best, I lose interest easily making a billion of the same block. This is perfect! I think my favorite block would be the bear paw. Hands down. Or would it be paws down! Sorry, I am easily entertained.

  167. I've been thinking about sampler quilts for the past couple of days. I think that would be a good place for me to start. Try out different designs and such without creating a whole quilt out of one design. This would be perfect. Awesome. I like the dresden style. So pretty.

  170. Well, yes I do follow your blog. I love your sampler quilt. My sister and I just did one at the same time, same fabrics but didn't show each other until we were done. It was so much fun. I really like anything by Sweetwater and the Mama Said Sew is fantastic. I don't have a favorite block, but enjoy doing most anything modern or scrappy. Thanks for the giveaway.

  173. My favorite block is ... anything that looks complex but is actually super simple. I can't think of a specific block off the top of my head.

    ReplyDelete
  174. I have two favorites that are not often found in samplers. I love log cabin and drunkards path. It always amazes me how many layout designs these blocks can make. I do see a courthouse step in your sampler. I love your color combination and your layout. They make the blocks go together. I am a follower.

  175. I'm a happy follower! I love star blocks, pinwheels, things that use triangles. I also love anything Sweetwater and think your sampler looks amazing! Thanks for the chance to win.

  189. Personally, my favorite block is the Maple Leaf, but I've made very few of them because there are so many other wonderful blocks!!!! I love the Sew Classic Sampler and to do it in the black white and reds is awesome! I have a new grand daughter coming and the nursery is in those colors, so I may have to snag some of that fabric!

  199. I love the colors in your quilt. . .course red anything makes me happy. I also like how you grouped the blocks. Favorite block is a star although, my friends would say my favorite block is a pinwheel because I am always making them using up "trimmings" from other block projects!

  200. I just googled FWS paper piecing and found your blog. Wow, can't believe I haven't seen your patterns before, awesome. Definitely a new follower now.
