Meadow Dance Blog Hop and Giveaways!

Posted on

Note: The winner of this giveaway is Peggy, who said that Meadow Blooms “tops the list” for her.  Congratulations, Peggy, and thanks for commenting everyone!

Hi everyone!
The folks at Contempo of Benartex have arranged a blog hop for my new collection, Meadow Dance, and we didn’t want you to miss it!

For more information head on over to Sew in Love with Fabric, where I talk about the line, the prints, the inspiration behind the motifs, a coordinating Aurifil thread collection, etc. And for the rest of the week they have a fun giveaway in store for you all each and every day!

In celebration of the hop, I think I’ll do a little giveaway myself! Just tell me which your favorite pattern is this time by leaving a comment on the blog to enter. I’ll pick a random winner of Meadow Dance goodies (patterns and a charm square) this Sunday night (the 24th).  If you already have the patterns I’ll send you other patterns of your choice, so no worries there!  (One entry per person please.)

Just as a little reminder, these are the patterns this time round, all pieced on my BERNINA 780 and quilted on the BERNINA Q Series

Meadow Blooms
“Meadow Blooms”, my two-block quilt that looks WAY harder to piece than it actually is!

 

“Meadow Song”, a modern take on a Dresden that is scrappy with two background prints.

 

“Meadowsweet” – a fun applique pattern with SVG files included!

 

Meadow Minis
“Meadow Minis”, a block-of-the-month with directions for “quilt-as-you-go” rulerwork!

 

Meadow Dance Ruler Panel
And last, but not least, the Ruler Guide for my Meadow Dance Panel, which works with Westalee ruler sets!

There is also a Meadow Dance embroidery collection by OESD – more on that soon!

There is also a free pattern – Meadow Paths, you can download from my downloads page

Good luck on the giveaway and I hope you have a lovely week! Happy quilting!

Book Giveaway and Quilting Plans

Posted on

Hi everyone,

Just a short post to announce that C&T has to new little books coming out – Make Precut Quilts and Make Table Runners.  That have projects from a variety of authors, including myself.  I thought we’d have a fun little giveaway to celebrate!

Enter by going over to instagram and searching for “AMANDAMURPHYDESIGN”.  Follow me and leave a comment at the bottom of the picture of the books, ok?  No need to regram or anything.  I’ll choose a couple winners randomly at the end of this weekend.

Also, just a heads up that we’re starting to talk about quilting plans for Feathers and Flourishes and Sewing Room quilts in my Free-Motion Quilting Idea Group on Facebook.  The first quilting plan I’m giving out FREE is Flourishes.  (You have to purchase the pattern to make the actual quilt though.)  You can find the PDF that explains it on my downloads page, but I’ll answer questions over in my Facebook group, ok?  Membership is free, but please make sure I can see that you are a quilter by previewing your page so I can approve the membership.

Hope you have a really fantastic weekend!

Hi everyone,

I hope  you are having a lovely summer and successfully evading the mid-afternoon heat!

Today I’m over guest blogging over at McCall’s Quilting about my pattern “Hexie Flowers” that is in their July/August 2015 issue.  If you go over you have a chance to win 8 of my patterns so that is pretty fun!  Thanks McCall’s!  (My new block-of-the-month Heart’s Delight  wasn’t back from the printer when I sent the prizes to McCall’s so for another chance to win check out the bottom of this post.)

Kits for this quilt are available over at McCall’s Quilting as well.

For a chance to win a copy of Heart’s Delight (plus a few scraps of Carina – not enough to make the quilt but something for you to sample a couple  months ahead of its shipping date!), just leave a comment over here telling me what type of motif you would like to see on fabric.  One entry per person please but for another chance to win head over to my instagram feed and follow me and like the photo of “Hexie Flowers” that I posted yesterday night.  I’d so appreciate it.  My user name is AMANDAMURPHYDESIGN.  Deadline will be this Sunday night (June 28th) at midnight because I’ll post the winner when I announce my newest product with C&T Publishing – The Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book.  SOOO excited to see what people create with this!

Be sure to check out McCall’s Quilting for another chance to win the 8-pattern set.  You have more time over there – until July 12th.

Good luck and happy quilting!

Amanda
