Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

Hello and a good Wednesday morning! Today is the annual Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day...a fantastic chance for blog readers to visit new blogs and enter giveaways for a variety of sewing and quilting supplies and handmade items!


I'm happy to be playing along this year--I feel like I've gained so much from


the on-line sewing and quilting community over the years, and I'm happy to announce that I'll be giving away a jelly roll of our Desert Bloom fabric (US Shipping only)!



Here's how to enter:
  1. For one entry, leave a comment about your favorite sewing and quilting projects to work on in January (I'm already looking forward to my new year sewing!).
  2. For a second entry, follow my A Quilting Life Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook  accounts--you don't need to follow all three, just choose one and then leave a comment letting me know you did that! 
That's all! I'll keep the giveaway open through Sunday night and announce the winner next Monday, December 12th!

Happy quilting...and thanks so much for stopping by!
