Giveaway Day & A Finished Quilt!!

Today is Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway day!!!


I'm so excited to snoop around blogland! It's a great way to see some great talent, new blogs and get totally inspired- not to mention you could be a win some great goodies being offered!

Up for grabs are two Comma Charm Packs by Zen Chic. Simply leave a comment advising your favorite charm pack pattern! I'll pick a winner on Friday 5/10/13.


I have a new quilt to share!! A friend at work asked me to make a baby quilt for one of her friends, so I jumped at opportunity to use these 16 patches that I made a few weeks ago. The pattern comes from the Liberty Love book by Alexia Abegg. I totally love this book- and need to jump back into working on my Marcelle Medallion quilt!


 
 I used up some of my favorite fabrics for the 16 patches, and added this sweet print from Aneela Hoey's Posy line. I think it makes a perfect quilt for a new baby girl- wouldn't you say?
 


I'll be back Friday to post a winner- thanks for stopping by!

  89. What a fantastic giveaway! I'm a little embarrassed to admit that, while I have a dozen or so charm packs, I don't really sew anything with them! Or, if I do, it isn't in a single line project, but in a scrappy, multi-fabric-line project. The one charm pattern I've used in one I designed myself.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Beautiful baby quilt! I really like the over the rainbow batiks by Moda. I'd love to use it to make a table runner.

    ReplyDelete
  158. comma is my fave so I am super excited about this giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  159. I usually don't purchase charm packs, but I think I would love a chance to try out an entire fabric line instead of just having to choose a few patterns out of the series. Solids would always be useful, but modern patterned fabric, like comma, would be awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  170. That is a really cute quilt. All the squares are so feminine. I like so many patterns and fabric lines and I'm not sure what you are asking. I really like to make stars and flying geese lately and charm packs are perfect for HSTs. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  171. I can't pick just one. Though Comma is pretty cute!

    ReplyDelete
  172. so many to pick from but i did love the terrain charm packs

    ReplyDelete
  173. I like your giveaway! I just finished a "scrappy" using two charm packs. Super easy with 9-patch blocks.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Charm packs are ideal for HST. I'm knee deep in a value(ish) HST quilt. Also love the look of them - but haven't done one yet - for granny squares. And depending on the line, you just can't beat using them as is, and having a simple squares quilt!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  182. I've never bought a charm pack before so I would be nice to win this and try it out.

    ReplyDelete
  183. I can not say I have ever used a charm pack before. I bought my first one last month so I will certainly be skimming the responses for some ideas of what to do with it.
