Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! - Giveaway Closed

**This giveaway is closed.**


Congrats to Kathy, from Aspiring Amerliorant, for being winner RNG #30! She's got some little boys of her own, and wouldn't an orange and blue quilt just be perfect for them to share! I have sent her an email, but if I do not hear back from her by Friday 12/20 then I will pick a new winner.

Thank you to all who entered, I had a great time reading everyone's comments.





Ah, the time when Christmas comes a little bit early for some lucky giveaway winners, thanks to Sew Mama Sew's biannual Giveaway Day! Welcome to my little space of the Internets, where I parade my cats, my sewing mistakes, snippets of my life, and occasionally have something finished to share ;)

I've participated in several of these since I've been blogging, and I thought this time around I'd do something a little different!



I'm giving away 150 HSTs in oranges and blues. The solid is Kona White. All the oranges and blues are designer, quilt-shop quality, with a couple Kona solids thrown in, and one Moda Crossweave. The images above are just some of the fabrics in the stack. The HSTs are 4.5" unfinished, and will require trimming. The seams are already pressed open. It's almost half and half between orange and blue, but there are maybe 10 more blue HSTs in the bunch. For those who would want to know, I piece with Gutterman polyester thread.



I'm also throwing in a length of Kona blue [not sure exactly what the shade is, but it's a medium blue] that is just a few inches shy of a full yard. So basically sew those HSTs together, cut up that Kona for some binding or backing, and you almost already have yourself a quilt! :)



The triangles are all left over from my X Marks the Spot quilt earlier this year, and I just don't want to make another quilt from them. They need a new home!


Here's the rules:
This giveaway is open worldwide (U.S. as well as international entries welcome) and will close on December 13th at 5 p.m. PST. I will announce who the random winner is by Sunday, December 15th.

Here's how to enter:
* leave a comment on this post
* to get a second bonus entry let me know that you are my follower, or become one and then let me know

**Please make sure that you have an email address attached to your comment, or I will have to pick a new winner!
