SMS Giveaway: Patchwork Pillow Cover

It's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!  I am excited to finally participate by offering this pillow cover to giveaway entrants.  It is a 20" sqaure pillow cover made from fabrics from my stash.  (To save on shipping, I will not be including a pillow form- sorry!)


The back is a rose pink dot print with a zippered closure.


If you are new to this blog, here's a little mosaic of some of the items I have made for myself and friends within the past year:


To enter my giveaway, please leave a comment answering the question, "What is the one sewing project you MUST do before you die?"  If you are a follower, let me know in a second comment, to receive a second entry.  I will ship internationally.  The winner will be chosen at random.  Please leave me your email address if you are a "no reply" commenter.  This giveaway closes on May 15, 5 P.M. PST.  Be sure to check out the many other giveaways at sewmamasew.com

I MUST make a quilt out of my Heather Ross Mendocino stash before I die! I'm only 30 so hopefully I'll get that accomplished ;-)

Sandra said...

I like the double wedding ring but there is no way that I could even attempt to make this one myself. Thank you for being a part of the Sew Mamma Sew giveway. I would consider myself so lucky and fortunate to win your Patchwork Pillow Cover. It would be an honor to win a giveway that is homemade. That says it all.

Ooh - so pretty! My goal for this year (and um, last year too) is to make clothes for ME. I quilt, sew house stuff (pillows, curtains, napkins, etc), sew gifty stuff (think teacher, new baby & kid birthday gifts) and make tons of clothes for my daughter, but have never made something for ME to wear. I don't know why I'm so afraid!

I really want to make a big quilt using only solids. No idea on the pattern, as that will probably change by the time I get around to making this huge quilt in my head. haha

Grandmother's garden. I have the fabric and have done a whopping two "squares". I think it is a lifetime project! (One of the ladies at my local quilt store joked that I will finish it by the time I am my Gram's age, so I have 50 years to work on it :)).
