Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

*This giveaway is now closed, and Cindy is the winner! She has been emailed. Thank you!*

Welcome to Quilty Habit! I love to improv piece and quilt on my domestic machine. I blog 2-3 times a week, teach and lecture about quilting, and write a free quilting newsletter. How do you do? :)


Today I'm excited to offer a 1 yard bundle of fabric (1/2 yard each) as part of Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day - the Viewfinders from Playful by Melody Miller and an OOP (out of print) fabric from Loulouthi by Anna Maria Horner.

Some of you might be wondering how I could give that latter one away, as I am a huge AMH fabric fanatic. Simple - it's a gorgeous piece of fabric, given to me by a friend, but I haven't found just the right use for it yet. I think it would be better in the hands of someone else. Somehow, these two prints just seem to go together! I hope you can find a beautiful use for them both.

Leave 1 comment*, answering this question: 
  • What is inspiring you to create right now? (It could be a thing, person, place, event, quilt, etc.) Links are appreciated but not required. If nothing is inspiring you this week, what has inspired you to create in the past?

You do NOT need to be a follower to enter, but you can if it strikes your fancy. I really try to share as much as I can in the hopes that I can spread around the quilty love as much as I have received! Right now, I'm in the middle of a modern wholecloth quilt (here's this week's post about quilting words in different sizes), and I share educational content (Top Ten Tips), progress posts, free patterns, quilt-a-longs, and detailed finish posts.


I also write The Wonky Press, a FREE bimonthly newsletter that contains relevant quilting links, project inspiration, community sharing, and highlights from my blog/a close up look at my personal life. Join our community and try it out!

  13. I am inspired by the women of the past, how they worked, shared patterns and chose their fabric. Their story was told on the surface of a quilt. I want my work to tell my story, to be meaningful to me. It is hard to know where I am going if I don't remember where I came from. I want to find ways to utilize the past traditions of quilt making to represent me today.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  29. Most of my inspiration comes from my true love for sewing! What makes my projects feel special from project to project is thinking how much the recipient will love the quilt! Additionally I have the need to try and comfort people and since I'm sort of an introvert who forces themselves to be social I make quilts for those I love and those who just need a quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh, Jess, you're giving away 1/2 yard of AMH? How big is your heart? What is inspiring me to create right now is my love for my friend Nancy and her kids. Nancy's husband died unexpectedly at just 56 years old--which doesn't seem too old, now that Nan and I are 52. They had one of the sweetest love stories I've ever known, since we were 18, and my heart is breaking for Nancy and the kids. Naturally, as a quilter, that is where my thoughts are now, and I"m thinking of what to make for each of them.

  95. What's mainly inspiring me right now is "Need"! I'm working on a baby quilt for an expectant mom in need, some warm fleece blankets for needy families, and I have two upcoming benefits/auctions to make quilts for! Also up for the next month is making a quilt with my college daughter (during the break) for her best friend's nephew, expected in January.

    I'm also inspired to make progress on a quilt for my sister's guest room bed; I've had the fabric for a few years! Right now I'm pinning diagonal rows together. I'll sew them and pin more when I can, multi-tasking with my benefit projects. It's for a queen bed and I hope to give it to her this summer.

    I love the Viewfinder fabric, but honestly I'm not sure when I'd use the AMH fabric. If I get picked, maybe you can pick another person for the AMH fabric and then there'd be two winners! In any case, thanks for having a giveaway -- what fun! :)

    I hope everything is great with you and your family!

  102. My husband is my most recent inspiration - I'm realizing that with our ten year anniversary just around the corner, and his unwaivering support/lack of ever getting a quilt from me, I need to start working on something just for him! Something tells me he's not looking for wonky stars or rainbow though, so I have some brainstorming to do!

  157. Lately, I've been incredibly inspired by the super-talented members of my local guild. I used to be so intimidated at the meetings, but they're all such lovely people, it just feels like a big group of old friends. And they're all so generous with their knowledge and experience, and so encouraging. I've learned so much!

I love seeing what other people are sewing or what fabrics are coming out and that usually ends up driving my next or next next....or 500th project on the list..... hahaha!

  177. I am inspired by this Craftsy class https://www.craftsy.com/sewing/classes/sew-to-flatter-plan-your-best-wardrobe/58949 which I took for myself but it led me to capsule wardrobes and the blog www.freenotion.com and really thinking about the colors, textures and fabrics I use in sewing projects not only for myself but also my children and as gifts for others.

  178. Inpiration from Bloggers such as you Jess, and all the colorful art quilting that you do. You are beginning to persuade me to change my 'warm only colors" eye to cooler one's like purple. I'm also inspired to try some hand quilting (like Cathedral window), and realized i had a spool of Aurifil floss to do just that. Practicing now. Thank you.
