Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day


***This Giveaway is now CLOSED. Winner will be announced tommorw, December 13th, 2016.***

Every year, Sew Mama Sew hosts one of the biggest and best giveaway link ups that a sewist could wish for. And since it is the season of giving, I thought I would gift a copy of my Jeweled Kaleidoscope quilt pattern! (PDF pattern) In case you've not been here before, be sure to check out my "Freebies & Tutorials" section, which is filled with fun project patterns, how-to videos, and even includes a tutorial that I did for Sew Mama Sew last year.


My paper pieced quilt pattern is for the advanced beginner to intermediate quilter, is available in four sizes, and even includes a mini version, which can be used in a variety of ways including a pin cushion, or even a favorite pillow.


The pattern is so versatile that you could literally spend all day coming up with various color combinations and layouts. Here are a few of my favorites:



So how do you qualify to win?

* Leave me a comment letting me know if you are sewing gifts for others this season, something for yourself, stitching holiday decorations, or taking a break from the sewing machine and enjoying the Christmas time hustle and bustle. Please be sure to leave me your email so I can contact you.

* Giveaway starts December 7th and goes through December 11th, 2016. The winner will be announced by December 14th. A PDF version of my Jeweled Kaleidoscope quilt pattern will be sent out you via e-mail.

* If you decide to buy a pattern now, and win the giveaway, your money will be refunded.

* This giveaway is open internationally

  7. What a cool pattern! I love the pillow and the rainbow quilt.

    I am sewing--I need to stitch up some quick circle skirts for my daughters, all four of them, and I already finished up some notebook covers for my mom and sister. I've had to keep my plans simple this year as I just had twins a couple month ago, but one of my favorite traditions is that I always give my daughters something handmade by me.

  15. Hi, I am having a year off sewing for family since I sort of sewed quilts for everyone last year. I offered another to my MIL, and she just looked at me and said "But I have a quilt". I guess one quilt is enough for some people.

  38. I am not making too many gifts, just a zippered pencil bag for my son's girlfriend. It seems that the bag may be too "deep" according to him, so I might just make a 2nd one for her. Those zippered bags are a little addicting! I really should be finishing a quilt for each of my college boys, but that's not gonna happen!
