Giveaway Day!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! THANKS FOR VISITING!
Congrats to Sarah of narcoleptic in a cupboard!


Welcome to A Quilter's Table!  I'm pleased to have you stop by. It's Giveaway Day on Sew, Mama, Sew! but odds are you know that. So we'll get right to the order of business!

The giveaway I'm offering is a stack of fat-eighths of Summerville (24 fabrics), a fun, colorful line by lucie summers for moda.
To enter, just leave a comment on this post telling me what new technique you'd like to add to your quilting repertoire. The giveaway will close at 5PM PST on Friday, and I'll randomly choose a winner soon after. Any comments that inadvertently get left after 5PM but before I close off the contest will not be included. And I'm happy to ship international, so everyone's welcome. *Please include an email address in your comment if it is not accessible through your profile.*
Thanks again for joining in the fun! If you aren't a regular follower, I hope you visit again soon and join me on my journey of quilting and sharing around the table.

  4. I really want to learn how to fit a pattern to me. I have been sewing some clothing for myself but am having trouble with tops. Skirts and dresses or jackets are pretty good but then tops I made neither one fit right. Not sure why.

  9. Arcs. I am going to learn to sew arcs with the little bit of Summersville I already have. This bundle would be lovely to add to what I have to make the quilt larger. Hopefully I have luck with my drunkard's path blocks as the last time I tried to sew an arc it did not work out well at all. I've been watching lots of tutorials!! :D

    Thanks for such a generous giveaway.
