Hi everyone! This week I’m doing a giveaway in conjunction with Kelly of I Have A Notion, and she does. She actually has a ton of notions! Like most of you out there, I LOVE NOTIONS. In addition to stocking a rotary blade sharpener that I have been coveting ever since she reviewed it last week, Kelly stocks of ton of Accuquilt dies. We thought it might be fun to do a giveaway incorporating my patterns and Accuquilt products.
This past weekend our kids and I cut some fun flowers using the Accuquilt fabric cutter – 20 in Veranda and 20 in Ambrosia. They are the perfect size for my Village Green quilt pattern. I’ll be giving away each set, in conjunction with a Village Green pattern. So, if you follow this blog, leave me a comment (only one) telling me the best handmade project you’ve ever given.
I’ll start by saying that the best project I’ve ever given was this quilt that I made for my mom. It was actually going to be her first quilt – I know – she is an overly ambitious person, but she was very distressed to find out how it soon overtook her house, so I inherited it very early on.
It was my favorite because of how much she appreciated the work that went into it. My friends lovingly referred to it as the “Guilt Quilt”. Mom even bought a new couch to go with a quilt. Only a mom buys a new couch to go with a quilt, for goodness sake! (Not to mention the fact that she is decorating her new house in Swiss Chocolate!) All year I told her that there was no way I could get it done, even as I was finishing up. We made her go on an embarrassing treasure hunt around the neighborhood to claim her prize, and when she came back home she was shocked to find it finished on her bed!
My second favorite giveaway is this Amy Bradley quilt I made for my nephew. Unlike his grandmother, he did not reupholster a couch to go with his quilt, which is why this is my second-favorite gift (sorry Ollie!), but he does know all the dogs by name.
For another chance to win a fun prize, go over and visit Kelly’s blog at I Have a Notion. She is also offering a great discount on the AccuQuilt GO! Round Flower Die that I used in the above photo and on the GO! Baby Fabric Cutter.
The deadline for both giveaways is midnight Thursday. We’ll announce the winners on Friday. Good luck and happy sewing!
