Giveaway at Sew We Quilt!

I’m sure some of you have heard about the fantastic giveaway going on every day at Sew We Quilt.  Madame Samm has graciously hosted a giveaway every day of the week for THREE WHOLE MONTHS for both Want To Be Quilters (on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) and Quilters (on Tuesday and Thursday). 

Today I am guest blogging over at Sew We Quilt showing how to make this

A lampshade covered with fabric!  No sewing this time, but we all love to accessorize.

The folks at Robert Kaufman have donated 1/2 yard cuts of Veranda for the giveaway so make sure you hop on over today and enter!  There are 2 bundles of 6 yard totals to win!  And Madame Samm has thrown a Colonial basket full of different goodies AND Famore Applique scissors too!  I know…  Just become a follower and leave a comment here and also at Madame Samm’s fabulous blog and you will be set to enter.  (If you beat me to it and left a comment on the previous post that is okay – I’m internet-challenged this week and apologize for my lateness.)  And don’t forget to check in at Sew We Quilt each day for the next 3 months for more giveaways!

Note:  If you have trouble seeing my follower button on my sidebar try refreshing the screen a couple of times.
Thanks Madame Samm!
