Charming Rainbows - Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

Hi there!  It's been a crazy time, and I'm a little late to the party.  I hope it will give readers new and old a better chance to win.

If you are new, welcome to Quilter in the Closet and my giveaway for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.  Sew Mama Sew's website has great content, and this semi-annual giveaway day is always a great time for me to find new blogs to follow, even if I don't always have time to keep up with reading them.  I've already added about 15 this morning, just don't tell anyone.

For this giveaway, I'm giving away 50 charm squares in a rainbow of colors (possibly not the exact fabrics below)!!  Yes, it is a similar prize as the last giveaway day.  I've been cutting a lot of charm squares lately and it doesn't seem right to keep them all to myself.  Plus, who could resist this rainbow of color?

****This giveaway is now closed.  Thank you for participating.

Color Wheel of Charm Squares

If you are new here, feel free to look around.  I love making stuff, especially quilts, in my spare time. Here are a few of my projects from this year.

2014 quilt mosaic

1. IG Mini Quilt Swap item, 2. Hexy flag quilt, 3. Doll Quilt Swap 14 finish, 4. 15 Shades of Gray mini, 5. Michael Miller Challenge quilt close up, 6. Monet Inspired wall quilt, 7. Doll quilt turned wall hanging or sewing mat, 8. Discontinuity 2, 9. finished shams, 10. Montana state mini, 11. Washington DC mini, 12. Ashley's 1st Communion Banner, 13. Massachusetts Mini, 14. Tinker Tote #4, front, 15. Mondrian inspired modern mini quilt, 16. New York state mini, 17. Alber's inspired modern mini, 18. Louisiana State mini, 19. Rothko inspired modern mini, 20. guitar block with skinny border

Geez, some of these projects seem like ages ago!

I also host a weekly linky party for other quilters to show off any blocks they have made recently.  It is called Building Blocks Tuesday and it is posted every Tuesday whether or not I have any blocks to share.  You don't even have to follow my blog to participate.

Now, I'm not going to make you jump through a dozen hoops to win.  Just leave a comment below telling me what your favorite Free pattern or tutorial is.  That's all.  I'm on the lookout for some new things to make for some upcoming swaps.

This giveaway will run until Friday, December 12th at 5 pm PST, when I will randomly choose a winner.  I will notify the winner via email by December 14th.  Please leave your email address as part of your comment in the form of Name(at)domain(dot)com).  It seems like every giveaway I host, half of the entries are No-Reply bloggers, and if I can't get a hold of you, you can't win.

This giveaway is open to International entries!

****This giveaway is now closed.  Thank you for participating.

I look forward to reading your comments.

Thanks for reading,

Jen

  1. I can't think of any free tutorial or pattern right now, probably because I haven't had time to use any for a while now... too busy sewing my own things! After a very enjoyable look around your blog I am convinced you're not a beginner at all, you're mighty experienced!

  2. LOL i am such a doofus ... i have been following your blog for quite some time now and just now it clicked with me that you are the one with the building blocks linky thingy LOL. I will be joining you on that one. Need to finish my Farmers Wife Blocks before the 15th of January.

  12. I recently made the disappearing nine patch for a quick-finish gift. It was fun to do something so easy that actually looks more complex. Probably not an absolute favourite, but suited my needs at the time. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway. I've never used charm squares.

  13. My favourite free tutorial is a pretty standard one - Noodlehead's Open Wide Zippered Pouch. I'm sure it's not new to you, but I keep coming back to it over and over.

    As for really sewing, I always enjoy to make baby shoes, baby clothes, plush animals, bags (though I need to have a recipient in mind, I have enough!), pajamas and appliqueing is a fun way to personalize something too... :) For those ideas there are way too many ideas online. ;)

  149. I'm recently infatuated with making Criss Cross Coasters (http://allsorts.typepad.com/allsorts/2006/11/crisscross_coas.html) with holiday fabrics. I gave some away at a coffee morning yesterday and the ladies were all tickled pink! Your charm squares would be perfect for whipping up a nice stack to have on hand for emergency gifts. craftytokyomama(at)yahoo(dot)com

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Sometimes I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
