Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway Day

UPDATE - GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED - THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED

Welcome to Giveaway Day!  For the visitors from Sew, Mama, Sew - nice to meet you!  Feel free to take a look around my blog - I've been pretty busy quilting over the last few months.


These are a few of my favourite projects:



Today, I'm giving away this charm pack of Quilt Blocks prints by Ellen Luckett Baker for Moda.



To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment letting me know what you like to see on sewing and quilting blogs - for example, finished projects, process posts, tips and tricks, tutorials, interviews with people in the industry, etc.

You can get an extra entry for each of the following (just leave an extra comment for each that applies):

- following my blog (through google friend connect or a feed reader); and
- liking my facebook page.

This giveaway is open to everyone (including international participants), but if I can't contact you, you can't win.  If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave your email address in the comment.

The giveaway will stay open until around 10 pm Sunday 12 May 2013 (New Zealand Time), and I will use the random number generator at random.org to pick a winner then.

By the way, I normally reply to each and every comment, but giveaway day is a little crazy!  Know that I will be reading and appreciating all your comments though.

UPDATE - GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED - THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED

I like original designs, things you can't find in a pattern. The process/tutorials are great to see how one came up with their own unique piece. Thanks for sharing your work! And BTW I love NZ!
