Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day: Four Tula Pink Fat Quarters


Welcome to my blog!  Please leave a comment, telling me what your favorite sewing book or novel is to receive a chance to receive these four brand new Saltwater fat quarters, designed by Tula Pink.  There is something about the "tulatroops" that just amazes me, avid fans of her fabrics are dedicated and put other designer groupies to shame.  When I saw these at an LQS a few months ago, I knew they'd make someone very happy.  I used bits and pieces of her Prince Charming and Saltwater collections to make the City Sampler recently:



International entries are welcome.  Followers of my blog, old and new, are welcome to leave a second comment for a new entry.  To give you an idea of what kinds of projects I share here, here's a small sampling:

Good luck!  Comments will be allowed for this giveaway from now through December 15 until 6 pm MST.  A winner will be chosen randomly that evening and will be notified via email.  Please make sure you are not a "no reply blogger" so that I can contact you.

My favourite book is Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh. It's the first book in an amazing series.

Your work is amazing! I'm a new quilter and am so inspired by your sampler, the basket and all the other beautiful things in your collage! My favorite novel is An Episode of Sparrows by Rumer Godden, a very old book that I first read in the 60's, when I was a teen and have re-read once or twice. It was made into a film, The Innocents, which I'd like to view someday.

Dixie said...

Love the city sampler - looks awesome!!! Reading the OUtlander series...mumbird3(at)gmail(dot)com

Alicia said...

Love the coat you made!

Cynthia Brunz Designs said...

It has seemed like forever since I have been able to read a book. I truly miss it but I do get out my Kaffe Fassett quilt books occasionally just for a bit of eye candy. Thanks!

Mandy Court said...

WOW, what beautiful projects! I love to read...raising 5 kids doesn't leave me much time to read these days, It's hard enough to find time to sew all the things that I want. That being said, the Princess Bride may be my most favourite book ever. My oldest daughter just finished reading it for the first time, and I think that I will have to make time this Christmas vacation to read it again.

Welcome to the Glorious Chaos! said...

I am currently working on a Tula Pink quilt for my mom featuring the blues of Saltwater! I don't think I have a favorite book....I love looking through all sorts of different books to get creative inspiration though!

Chiska said...

Picking a favorite book is like trying to pick a favorite fabric. I just like them! One my favorite picture books is The Marshmallow Incident.

Aimee said...

I have a couple books with classic block patterns. I'd love to do a modern sampler someday though!

Sew Joyful said...

My favorite novel Redeeming Love, so good!!

Angela Bullard said...

My favorite book is The Giver. Not exactly for adults, but still great :). Any chance you would share the name of the quilt shop where you found these fat quarters? I desperately need more for a project I'm working on.

Heather62 said...

I love the novel Alice's Tulips by Sandra Dallas. It's beautiful.

Sarah said...

We can't seem to get Tula fabrics in this neck of the woods...I wonder why? I simply adore the first one since I am collecting fabrics with hexies on them. I think my fav quilting books would be the Elm Creek Quilters series.

bee said...

i like the white House Chef mysteries by Julie Hyzy - fun, quick reads and recipes.

Born4Travel said...

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer is a wonderful book.

Kathy@KayakQuilting said...

Guilty as charged! Joined the Tulatroops all the way!! I love your question as I really need something new to read!

Jennifer said...

The book that I go back to over and over again is Angela Walters Free Motion Quilting book. It not only has fantastic ideas (showing you how to make said motifs, too), but they are wonderful jumping off points, as well.

Kathy@KayakQuilting said...

And yup, that's me an "old" follower!

MC said...

Carol Doak's 50 paper pieced stars are very impressive and versatile, so I think I will put her down as my favourite sewing book.
