3 Winners & the start of a new giveaway!

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:

#171: carmel said... and i blogged about it thanks!

#111: Tammy said... Yeah I'm a follower!!! excited to see where the quilting road takes you!! Im also a lover of quilting and am thrilled to add you to our world.


#103: kimland said... Your patterns are beautiful, unique and fresh! Congrats on a dream come true!

** Ladies, please send me your mailing info and I'll get these patterns off to you!


Thanks again to everyone who played!
(For anyone who didn't win, but is still interested in purchasing these patterns you can go to my etsy shop here.  For 1 week: all patterns will be $1 off!)

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!

I have to have something on in the background while I sew or I won't be able to sit still for too long. It's usually the TV or I will play a movie or something on the laptop.

I usually listen to music, sometimes the tv.
I always have the company of my two cats, they just love when mom is in the sewing room.

EmileeHope said...

I like to listen to music while I sew. Normally something relaxing like Enya, but sometimes I will be rocking out to something fun and upbeat. If it is anything I am doing by hand I will watch a movie while I work.

Sally said...

To entertain myself while I sew, I usually turn on a couple t.v.'s in the house and crank the volume just a bit so that I can at least listen to the same show while I travel between the kitchen and my the room my sewing machine is in.

bellaandmolly said...

I posted a comment on Lila's blog thanking her for her contribution to your giveaway.

I usually try to sew with my mom and we chat and sew; it's both fun and productive!

I watch crime dramas almost exclusively while I sew. I have no idea why.

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

I watch tv as I quilt, since i'm an all by hand sewer. It's so relaxing and my husband says it relaxes him to see me quilting too! Great blog!

CJ said...

Once a weekend I get together with a quilting group and sew for two days straight, so my entertainment is chatting with my friends! I wish I could sew at home too, but with little kids that is impossible.

Love the mod medallions pattern!

Prissy said...

What do I do for entertainment while I sew? Well, I've got my sewing machine set up next to the television and dvd ..... so I just pop something in and sit back and watch/listen to the tv. My hands want activity while I watch tv, so this is perfect for me.

taxchyk said...

I'm very new to sewing, so I have something going on the radio or tv that requires little attention. I need the attention to go to what I'm working on! Thanks for the chance to participate.
