How about another giveaway for Sew, Mama, Sew's Giveaway Day!



Are you ready for another giveaway? In honor of Sew, Mama, Sew's Giveaway Day, I'm giving away a copy of Block Party--The Modern Quilting Bee: The Journey of 12 Women, 1 Blog, & 12 Improvisational Projects by Alissa Haight Carlton and Kristen Lejnieks and some yummy fat quarters of fabric by Lizzy House and Jennifer Paganelli. Sounds good, right? Block Party is one of my favorite quilting books and I'm thrilled to be sharing a copy with one of my readers. And I put together this little stash of fabric so you can get started on some projects right away if you're the lucky winner.

I'm also giving away lots of other goodies this month, including:





Be sure to enter to win those giveaways as well! If I do say so myself, a few of my readers will be having a very happy December! ;)


Are you ready to enter today's giveaway? Here's how to do it. You'll have up to two chances:

**Leave a comment telling me about any virtual bees you've participated in. If you haven't participated in one, no worries! You can still enter.

** Followers of my blog will receive an additional entry. If you're a follower of my blog, please leave a second comment telling me that you are. New followers are welcome, as well!




That's it! The giveaway runs until December 16th, at 5 pm, PST. I'll use the Random Number Generator to pick one winner, and please make sure your email address is either in your comment or a part of your blogger profile. I'll announce the winner here and then notify you by email. International entries are welcome!




Be sure to check out all of the great giveaways that are happening as part of Sew, Mama, Sew's Giveaway Day. And thank you to all the great SMS folks who put this together twice a year! I'll be back on schedule next Monday with another installment of Vintage Quilt Mondays, as well as some more fun posts this week. Happy Giveaway Day!

I think what I participated in would qualify. I was a member for year of the Star Crazy Blog where we there were around 12 or more of us making the same quilt and we would each take turns blogging of our progress and showing photos and if we ran into any trouble posted about it and got advice or gave away.

Amy said...

I've never participated in a virtual bee, but I'd really like to. I have never applied because I've always felt my skills are inferior to the ones I see in swap posts on sewing blogs. But, maybe it will be a New Year's resolution to appy for one because, really, my skills are plenty good.

Misformilk said...

I've never done a "bee." Not really sure how they work! I mostly sew clothes for my kids, but have done a couple of baby quilts.

Clare said...

By bee's do you mean a sort of online retreat? If so I own the Liberated Quilters Yahoo group and we have online retreats about once every two months. Great fun, especially as we are all over the world so the retreat normally starts in Australia and it's like a Mexican Wave going round the world.

{Leila}Where the Orchids Grow said...

I haven't done a quilting bee, but I have done knitting swaps. My favourite was a Travelling Timelord Passalong, where a crocheted Doctor Who (David Tennant version) got passed from one participant to the next. He travelled in a TARDIS bag, and picked up souvenirs on his route. It was a brilliant swap. :)
