If this is your first time to my blog, WELCOME! My name is Melissa and I am a mommy, army wife, quilter and I blog about it all. Please take a moment to check out my tutorials page – I spent most of the last 4 months working on 18 blocks for a sampler quilt and all the tutorials are posted. I am mostly a quilter, although I do occasionally do sewing projects as well. When I’m not sewing for family and friends I do a lot of sewing for charity, I like to give back whenever I can! Today I have some special prizes in store for you!
I have three sewing patterns that will go to three separate winners and one fabric prize for the big winner:
For the beginning sewist – I have an apron pattern that is made with fat quarters – so bust out your fat quarter stash (I know you have one of those – I sure as heck do!) and get sewing!
Are you starting to get comfortable with paper piecing? Do you have a favorite little girl in your life whose room needs some sprucing up? How about a paper pieced heart wall hanging?!? With some modern fabrics and colors this could be so stinking cute!
Have you been wanting to learn the Quilt As You Go technique? It has been all over the web, and I even have a tutorial coming your way on this very blog in the new year, but if you want to get a head start, how about a very simple pattern? Again, change out the fabrics and this could be the sweetest baby quilt every!
And for my grand prize winner…I have a 1 lb bag of high quality quilting scraps. Including some Flora, Ruby and all of the Delighted that I have left after making my Delightfully Simple Reversible Purse (and I had a lot of extra fabric!!!) – the sky is the limit with this fun bag of fabric!
First Entry: Tell me the first project you plan on making in the new year – for example: I plan on making my niece a quilt.
Second Entry: Be a follower, old or new, and tell me which method you use to follow – check my sidebar – there are lots of ways to do it!
That’s it, super simple!
Good luck – this giveaway will run through Friday, December 16th and I will email the winner on the 18th (I will be traveling on the 17th). I will be using the wordpress plugin And the Winner Is… to select the winner.
Oh yeah! I forgot to mention – this is open internationally!
NOTE: Don’t forget, I am one of the bloggers who is going to lose Google Friend Connect in March 2012, please take a moment and follow me via Bloglovin’, Facebook, RSS or networked blogs.
