Sew Mama Sew Giveaway #2

Giveaway is now CLOSED!!!!

I have a giveaway for Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day for a custom doll going on here but I thought since I'm primarily a quilter that I'd host a giveaway for something a quilter wants (and NEEDS!).

For this giveaway I'm giving away a $25 gift card to Fresh Modern Fabric

 Who can't use some more fabric in their lives?

Here are a few things they have in their shop:



To enter just leave me a comment.  If you want you can tell me about your favorite sewing pattern (garment, quilt, bag, or other).

For an additional entry become a follower of my blog (or tell me that you already do)
And for a 3rd entry leave me a comment telling me you went to my Etsy shop and "favorite-ed" it

That's it!  Giveaway closes May 25 at 5 p.m. PST closed! and I'll announce the winner chosen by random draw the next day.

International entries welcome!

p.s. If you're following the Bloggers Quilt Festival please feel free to nominate my Little Leaves quilt #174 in the hand quilting category!

Congratulations to our winner #65, Jessica!

  116. My favorite quiting pattern is the one I'm planning on creating next. That's always the way it is for me - I love sewing my current project, but planning the next one is so exciting that I can't wait to finish the current project so I can begin a new one. I don't know that I've ever made a pattern more than once, because there are so many new patterns to try out. But, now that I think about it, it would be kind of neat to do a pattern more than once, and see what changes you can make (fabric choices and design modifications.)
