Oh hi! My name is Meesh and I am super excited to participate in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day this year (first-timer here)!! I have two giveaways today and thank-you for stopping by and checking them out and good luck to everyone with all of SMS's giveaways!!
Giveaway Number 1:
I will be giving away 8 untrimmed granny square blocks that I made just about nine months ago as a part of a swap on Flickr. It really was a super, duper fun swap where each swapper made 8 blocks in their specific colorway (my assignment was pink and green) in three different backgrounds, Kona White, Kona Snow, and Kona Charcoal. Well, it happened that a really nice, popular online fabric store sent me Bella Snow instead of Kona Snow yardage. I had never seen Kona Snow OR Bella Snow so I did not know that it was even remotely wrong. I did think it was interesting that so many quilters raved on and on about this yellow fabric, but I sewed up my blocks, mailed them in, and called it a day! Then about a week later, my bee mama sent me an email asking about the background fabric that I had used for 8 of my blocks. It appeared to be too dark of a background and did not match with any of the other blocks she had received. Long story short: I ended up buying new fabric (from a different online store), buying both a Kona and a Bella card, AND making 8 new blocks. Not to mention that I was sooooo incredibly embarrassed!! Anyhow, my loss is your gain, you can win these 8 granny blocks on Bella Snow! I might even throw in a 9th block, so that you can make an easy/quick baby quilt! **wink wink **
Here are the block details:
We used Katie's tutorial: I'm A Ginger Monkey and trimmed up, these blocks should each be 9-1/8 square.
Here are the fabrics that I used:
Giveaway Number 2:
I will also give away 1 yard of Anna Maria Horner's Voile Shattered print in Sky (from Innocent Crush). It is unwashed and so soft and pretty. I really quickly snapped a few pictures inside of our 1949 Packard. Isn't that wool fabric used on the seats amazing?
Hey, I am keeping it real on this blog, not always pretty pictures, not always puppy dogs, ice cream cones, princesses, and rainbows. I make mistakes. Lots of them. Sometimes I share them and we can all laugh and learn. <3
Just let me know what your most embarrassing quilting/sewing/crafting or whatever moment is and you will be entered into both giveaways. Or just comment, what ever works for you!! :) Open to anyone, anywhere :)
Giveaway Details: I will leave this giveaway open until May 10 at 5 p.m. PST when I will pick the two winners. Emails will go out to winners by May 11th as well as a post on how awesome and luck you are! As long as I have addresses to mail, I will ship the very next day. Good luck and I look forward to other stories, we all could use a good laugh, right?
