SMS Giveaway Day!

*This giveaway is now closed. The winner is Vicki and she has been emailed! Thanks to everyone for entering!*

 http://www.sewmamasew.com/

I'm excited to participate in SMS Giveaway Day today! If you're new to my blog, I'm Jess and I love quilts, color, mixing fabric lines, leading my Modern Quilt Guild, flying by the seat of my pants, and quilting on my home machine. My current large project (amongst a billion WIPs and side projects) is my original design medallion quilt. I have several exciting projects and online collaborations coming up that I'm super excited about! My goal is always to "keep it real" around here, and I adhere to the "it's my party and I'll blog if I want to" idea (ie Instagram is fabulous but only to a point, in my opinion). Maybe I need a button :D Anyway, enough about that... the giveaway:


I recently acquired some beautiful, soft Indian Summer cuts (Sarah Watson for Art Gallery) and the awesome Zen Chic barcodes (Comma). All four are fat eighths (a couple are about an inch bigger) - a nice little bundle for a lucky winner. The barcodes even kind of go with the Indian Summer. :) For the next big giveaway day, I would like to make a handmade item; I just didn't have a chance to make something this time 'round.

For a chance to win the fabric, tell me where you would live if you could - whether it be on this earth, or a certain time period, or a place in a story or movie. Personally, I would be more than a happy hobbit if I could just hang out in Hobbiton for the rest of my life, enjoying good food, friends, and flowers.

Details:

One comment/answer per person. Followers get an extra chance - just throw in a second comment and tell me how you follow! I will ship internationally. The giveaway closes on Friday, May 16 at 8pm EST. I will choose a winner via the Random Number Generator (or another creative way if I can muster up the energy on Friday), and I will email them! I usually respond to all comments but giveaways get overwhelming, so I may not get to them all.

Have fun clicking around blogland and entering giveaways on Sew Mama Sew! Thanks for your continued support of my blog. :)

  1. I'd like living in "the good old days" ..... though that changes with every story/memory I tell, as to exactly when the best days were ........ but today's not a bad place to be either (most of the time!)

  2. I'd be very happy living in the San Francisco from Nalini Singhs Psy/Changeling series.

  3. Fun fabric. I'm pretty happy in the present but I think the 50's and 60's might have been fun to experience.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I think I'd also be happiest in the present but I do think living in the Caribbean during the pirate reign around the turn of the 17th century would have been fascinating. Though as a lady I'd hope to be there under strictly business circumstances and I like to believe I'd have made a darn good lady pirate.

  5. If you're gonna be a Hobbit, I want to be one too--so long as I get to have a sewing machine ;-) Also, hobbits don't have to shave, right? BIG plus, haha...and they eat all the time! Yeah, I'm totally there.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I follow/borderline stalk you through various avenues.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I could quite happily live in the Shire, I'm only 5 ft tall so wouldn't even have to duck going through the doorways into Hobbit homes!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I'd live in the Caribbean (probably Bonaire) so I could SCUBA dive more often!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Lovely fabrics. Love this question but I don't know the answer! I love Jane Austen novels and the romance of them but the reality of draughty houses and terrible plumbing is no fun - I'm a bit of a realist! I'm quite happy living in the here and now although to enjoy life before children again could be great!

  13. I would love to live half the year in Europe and half the year here in New Zealand. 6 months in each European city would be my idea of a perfect life. As a bonus it would also be a perpetual summer.

  19. First thing I thought of was "Anne of Green Gables"--that time, that place, and at that pace. We live a quiet country life in the Pacific Northwest, so it wouldn't be a h-u-g-e change, but I think the "peaceful" and "slow-paced" aspects would be magnified, which sounds so good to me.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I wouldn't mind living on a tropical island where it is warm all year long....as long as there were no hurricanes! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I follow you via email, and I love seeing your projects--I learn a lot from your choices of color and design.

    ReplyDelete

  40. I'm gonna cheat and say I'd like to live in the Tardis- that way I can visit any when/anywhere. I'm too flighty to commit to any one time or place! Then again, in one Heinkein book there was a planet where all the best fictional characters mingled with the "real" folks, I'd like to go there, too. Thanks for the fun question, and the giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Now that's an interesting question! Somewhere warm, but with easy access to winter conditions so I can still go snowshoeing sometimes. Oh, and I love dragons, so maybe they could live with me too? Pretty sure I'd have to create my own world! Those fabrics are so pretty.

  49. I'd live on a quiet cul de sac where all my college friends lived as well. We'd be able to spend as much or as little time together as possible! Can you tell we're all spread out and don't see each other often enough?!
