Yeah! It is Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day’! I LOVE Giveaway Day! (well..technically week). It’s a great opportunity to take some time, check out bloggers, and of course – win some goodies in the process!
Here’s a little peek at the goodies I’ll be giving away for Giveaway Day! (Yes, that’s Aurifil that you are spying!)
But FIRST -I want to tell you WHY you want to follow my blog and read it every time I post!

I tend to make quilts that don’t follow any typical guidelines. I’m pretty sure that my style is that of ‘Free Range Quilting’. (and yes – I made that style up). I do what I want, with what color, fabrics and patterns I want – and they are definitely never boring!
Project QUILTING is a challenge I run on my blog. A typical season of Project QUILTING goes from January through March each year. A challenge goes up on a Sunday and you have ONE week to make and finish a quilt that fits that challenge! Since Project QUILTING began in 2010 – 1,163 quilts have been started and finished during the week of a challenge!
This year I’m running a special ‘Off Season Challenge’ – Focus Through the Prism. It just started this month and there’s still time for you to join in the fun – just head over to HERE – to find out more about the challenge! If the week deadline I talk about above scared you– don’t worry! You get a month to start and finish your quilts!
I made my television debut on PBS with ‘Nancy’s Corner’ – a portion of the show ‘Sewing with Nancy’ this past September. I had the pleasure of talking to her about Project QUILTING and why it’s been such an inspiration to so many!
Patterns and Tutorials
I love to share with you patterns and tutorials throughout the year as I come up with fun and new ideas! These can be found on my Craftsy Pattern Site! They are often initially free so be sure to follow me and not miss a thing! After a certain time period I do put a cost onto the patterns but I promise it’s completely reasonable!
Three of my most popular patterns are:
Let’s Go Fly A Kite
There’s always something creative going on in my world – most of the time quilts. But this summer I’ll be posting about the transformation of a boat that we buried in our yard before last winter. We’ll be updating it, painting it and making it into a fun, safe place for kids to play in this Fall at our Apple Orchard. I can’t wait to see what ends up happening to it!
Family and Orchard –
I have three beautiful baby girls, a handy hubby and an apple orchard. You’ll get to hear more about our adventure’s throughout the year and for some reason it seems like we’re never lacking in adventure.
Alright… enough about me! Let’s see what I’m GIVING AWAY this week!…
