There will be a full tour soon! It’s a small space so I’m now full of tips to maximizing and organization. During the move, LOTS of fabric had to find a new home and I saved some good stuff for a GIVEAWAY! There are TWO prizes!! 

First up is 500 rainbow charms! Lots are from swaps; some I cut from my stash! There are definitely some hidden gems in there.

The poor thing got the measles in third grade so hopefully this hilarious and awesome book will help ease a bit of that memory.

Winner! Winner!

It’s time to pick a winner from the Imagine Quilts giveaway! I caught Mack the Chihuahua accepting bribes. Can’t you see the guilt?


So I used the random number generator myself and the lucky winner is number 21!


Her favorite dog is her pooch! I approve.


Plus, there’s a surprise!! You win the e-book of Imagine Quilts by Dana Bolyard AND a pack of Carolyn Friedlander’s Botanics Aurifil thread. Thanks to Dana for the bonus prize!! Congrats Sue!


I can’t say enough nice things about this book (and Dana!)!! Make sure you check it out!

Imagine Quilts GIVEAWAY

A few weeks ago, the amazing and sweet Dana Bolyard of Old Red Barn Co. came to visit the Triad MQG and Sew Original. We celebrated her new book, Imagine Quilts! Can we just start with the cover?! I love that quilt! Perfect scrappiness.


We were able to do a workshop with her and make tons of blocks for charity! She’s very calm about sewing curves and offered some great tips. We combined all the blocks we made for nearly three quilt tops.


The book is wonderful! There are some great quilts in there. The whale is adorable!! It’s a favorite of mine as I love whales.


There are loads of great ideas with Dana’s scrappy style shining through. And she was sweet enough to offer an electronic copy to one of you! This giveaway is an easy one. Make a comment below about what your favorite animal is. Mack the Chihuahua and I will do a random drawing from these entries to choose a winner! The lucky winner will receive an electronic copy of Imagine Quilts! And there might just be a bonus prize. Entries open through Wednesday, August 20 at noon.

The Big 3-5 for Olfa GIVEAWAY

Olfa rotary cutters are turning thirty-five this year!! Interestingly, I am also thirty-five. Obviously I would be the exact age of perhaps the most revolutionary quilting notion ever. ;) To celebrate, Olfa sent me this great package! Are we celebrating my birthday or theirs? You be the judge. It included a small rotary, a rotating 12″ mat and a 6 1/2″ ruler with frosted advantage. Plus an adorable little rotary pin. These pins were all the rage at Quilt Market!

I’d not used frosted advantage before. (It’s newish!) It’s frosted to make the lines easier to see on light and dark fabrics. An added bonus is that it doesn’t slide. At all. As in doesn’t budge. Brilliant!


I immediately unwrapped all the packages to play! Obviously:)


Olfa had asked for a 6 1/2″ block to celebrate their birthday. The only requirement was that I had to use yellow. If there is one color that is limited in my stash, it’s yellow. But I did find all these Olfa yellows to consider. Black and white seemed like the best coordinate.


I chose the Pez fabric and got to cutting with my new rotary set!


The dotted lines on the half inch lines are awesome! They’re easy to see and I prefer dotted lines because I don’t like the fabric to be crooked under the line and have a slight tilt. All the markings are really nice on this ruler; I can tell it’s going to become a favorite!!


I cut rows of the yellow Pez. I did rows of threes and fives since they’re turning the big 3-5!


I used this adorable little heart print from Dear Stella since I LOVE Olfa!


I added black and white dots. I cut these in threes and fives as well! Luckily the math worked out on all that. My block is finished!


Do you want this adorable box with the same goodies to come to your house? It’s GIVEAWAY time!


This prize is only open to US residents. As always, there are lots of ways to enter!
1. Leave a comment about your favorite birthday celebration!
2. Follow my blog with Bloglovin or RSS feed. Like me on Facebook. Follow me on twitter. Follow me on Instagram. Follow me on Pinterest. Follow me on Craftsy. Or find me on any other social media that you can think of!

There are lots of ways to get an entry; you can do just one or all of them. If you’re already a follower, that’s great! It counts as an entry!! Please post a separate comment here for each entry! Your comment here is the entry. And remember, you can do just one! Entries open through 5 pm est on Saturday, July 20. Mack the Chihuahua will select the winner; he tends to use the random number generator. Don’t send bribes; I watch him like a hawk. But he so appreciates them!
Let me know if you have any questions!! Good luck!!
