Sew Obsessed Fabric Giveaway

*****Giveaway closed*****

Happy Tuesday, everyone! My little guy starts a new school year today, and since I always get emotional on the first day of school, I thought today would be a great day for a giveaway, don’t you?

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored giveaway from Annie at Sew Obsessed.

How would one of you like to win one yard of this Michael Miller Fifties Kitchen fabric? This fabric is adorable. It totally reminds me of my grandma’s kitchen so I feel a little nostalgic looking at it. I can see some great aprons and hot pads made out of it. Or maybe some fun café curtains?

You have three chances to win:
  1. Check out Annie’s shop, then come back here and let me know what your favorite product is.
  2. Become a follower of Annie’s personal blog and leave a comment letting me know.
  3. Become a follower of my blog and leave a comment (or let me know that you already are).

Please make sure to include a way for me to get in touch with you. If I draw a winner without contact info, I’ll go ahead and pick a new winner.
The giveaway will be open until Saturday, August 27.

As an added bonus, Annie is generously offering all of you readers 20% off your online purchases. Just use the coupon code "CUPCAKE" during checkout.

Happy shopping!

Heads up: Next week I will be hosting a sponsored giveaway. Check back in a couple days for the details.

On Thursday, the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild had our show and tell for the Kona Solids Challenge. If you can ignore the crappy cell phone pictures I took, you can browse through the entries. Kati and Amy both did blog posts about the challenge. Blogger is being painfully slow right now so head on over to their blogs to check them out.

Block for Kati and a Few Other Things

I feel like it's been ages since I've done anything sewing-related over the last several weeks. I think it's because I'm down to the wire with this pregnancy and I am SO feeling it. My body is asking me, "What in the heck did you sign me up for?!" But on Saturday, the SLCMQG got together for a Sewing Saturday. I tackled this quilt block for Kati in the Sew Beautiful Bee. She asked for wonky log cabins with improv piecing. I did my best to channel my inner wonk, so I hope it works with her design. One thing I struggled with was the improv piecing…meaning I only did it once in this block with that FMF print. (Sorry Kati!)

I also made a string X block in oranges and grays for Leigh, but forgot to snap a photo of it before handing it over to her that day.

In other fabric news, I signed up for Kati’s Color Wheel Charm Swap (which I’m so excited about). My assigned colors are green and green-yellow. Here are the fabrics I picked.

Itty Bitty Chairs in Grass from Tufted Tweets by Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman

I have a few more items on my to-make-before-baby-comes list and I’m pretty sure they won’t all get done. My daughter’s bed quilt needs to take top priority now that the bunk beds we ordered are here and I’m sure I won’t be able to finish a quilt of that size after the baby’s born. I also need to finish my Kona Solids Challenge quilt by next Thursday (gah! How did time fly so fast?!) and cut my fabrics for my month in our quilt guild bee. In order to do all this though, I need my body to stop screaming at me and just relax enough so I can get something done. Please send encouraging thoughts my way!
