Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway Day! Win a custom rainbow charm pack

At Quilt Market last week I was so excited be able to hang out a little bit with the fabulous Kristin from Sew, Mama, Sew! Not only does she (with the help of her fellow Yams) throw a rockin' dinner and mixer (more on that later this week!) but she is so incredibly kind! We braved the Sample Spree line together and she gave me the ins and outs of it as we went along - thanks for hanging out with a quilt market newbie, Kristin!



Lots of you know that Sew, Mama, Sew! hosts a giveaway day a few times a year. Today is the day for the spring giveaway - so read carefully to find out what you can win from me and how you can enter.

I am a sucker for fabric in rainbow order! So for my Giveaway Day prize I'm giving away a rainbow charm pack of fabric straight from my personal stash - custom made just for YOU (the winner!). What this means is I'll be putting together a charm pack (5" squares) of various bright, fun, and cheery fabrics from my stash, and once I pull the winner - you'll have the chance to tell me YOUR favorite color, and then I'll make sure the charm pack has lots of charms in your favorite color in it, as well.

These pictures are just random pictures of fabric that's in my stash - but be assured that the winner's charm pack will be just as rad - I love bright, fun, cheery fabric and will make sure to put together a charm pack just as amazing as these pictures of fabric are. There'll be no less then 75 different 5" charms in the custom pack for you - with many hard to find fabrics included (Katie Jump Rope is my favorite line ever, and I'll make sure to sneak some charms of it in for you, too!)

whaddya think?


What can you do with a charm pack of fabric? Lots of stuff! Make a simple patchwork picnic quilt. Chop it up and use it in various scrappy items. Make patchwork tea towels for your kitchen. If you're a garment sewist - patchwork the pieces together and make a fun dress or pair of shorts for a little boy! If you don't even sew - well, if you win you can just look at the pretty fabric!

my favorite pieces

  4. Morning, Erin! We live in the Midwest and have season passes to a great amusement park called Holiday World. It is located in Santa Claus, Indiana. (It's always Christmas there!) It's always a big deal when the park reopens for the season. It has a water park and a regular amusement park. We go about once a week and really have so much fun. Thanks for your beautiful rainbow pictures. I have never made a rainbow quilt but I can see making a color wheel or something really neat with fabrics like those. Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Wow - that is one great stack of fabrics! Would love to win a charm pack of them :)

    Summer... man I've been looking forward to summer for MONTHS! I LOVE getting outside with my husband and my dog. We go hiking, biking, jogging, have picnics, go play in the pond at the dog park, go kayaking, finally get a tan at the pool, drive down to the beach... so much fun to be had outdoors!! After a long winter of working and short dark snowy/rainy evenings afterward, I'm looking forward to all of the above and more :)

  8. we have hot dog night in our town. One night all the businesses set up grills on the sidewalks and grill hot dogs. You can eat as many as you can until they are all gone. Some places will have chili or taco toppings. Yummy! Less than a month away.

  10. In the summertime I love to chase around the laberynth that is our neighbourhood and search for the ice cream van man. You can hear him but you can't see him and he never, ever comes up our street. Makes the ice cream taste that much better when you finally do find him and stroll home again with treats in hand.

  16. Favorite thing about summer...county fair. We live in a rural area and have an awesome 4H fair in July. My kids are too little to participate yet but my husband and many of our friends are very active in running it, so we spend a lot of time at the fairgrounds. Biggest bonus...no carnival allowed so no crazy spinning rides, loud music, or odd crowds, just great kids doing great things. Awesome giveaway, thanks!

I'm down to my last jar of peach jam, which is going to have to last until July... *counting the days til the next peach jam fest*

  158. What a great giveaway! We will be doing LOTS of swimming and running in the sprinklers this summer. My kids beg me all winter to do it. Also - sleeping in. Nice.

  159. I love to chase fireflies with my kids at dusk. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  160. Great give away. I love the summer because it means (hopefully) nice sunny days and shorter dark nights. This in turn means I can spend more time outside and if that involves out in the countryside or a beach...or even my garden then I love it!

  161. I luuuurv charms, they make the best scrappy quilts. My favourite colour is probably denim blue.

  164. I love the sunny days and being able to go outside without being all bundles up! And all the fresh fruits and veggies, too!

  165. Just one thing I love about summer? How about not having to sleep in fleece sweatpants (yes, it's very sexy) to stay warm. I think my husband appreciates this too :)

  166. I love barbecue with my whole familiy!

  167. Your stash is awesome, and I love how you have it arranged on those narrow bookshelves.

  169. What's NOT to like about summer? Hard to pick just one! I love not having to wear closed shoes and jackets, farmers markets, mint iced tea on a hot day, cold watermelon, and enjoying seeing my kitties finally have a nice sunny spot near the window to nap in!

    ReplyDelete
  170. I love putting things in rainbow order too. :)

    What I love about summer: flip flops and toe nail polish, weekly rodeos, the town swimming pool is open, & long days for delicious BBQ!

  176. Everything lemons. I get lemon crazy in the summer. Lemonade, frozen lemon pie, limoncello...the family is so sick of lemons by August! (not me)

    ReplyDelete
  177. I love these fabrics. So much. I am crossing my fingers and my toes.

    The thing I love about summer is warm afternoons out in the yard, harvesting vegetables from our own garden for our dinner while my son plays and laughs. I also love the sound of crickets and frogs and a good frappachino on a nice patio!

    ReplyDelete
  178. I love your rainbow giveaway! My "most anticipated" summer activity is growing tomatoes...so fabulous to eat them straight from the garden!

    ReplyDelete
  179. I love hanging out with extended family at the lake!

    ReplyDelete

  181. I love garden-work, the colours, the smells, the long days ........

  183. Love those summer days...when the kiddos are out of school and I play hooky from work and we waste the day away laughing and playing

  184. I love catching fireflies with my pre-schooler!

  185. To be completely honest, I hate summer. Always have. I could go on and on about the things I don't like about summer.

    The one thing I do like about summer, is the freedom from schedules. In the evenings, when it's just starting to get dark, (at 8 PM), the kids are running around with the other kids in the neighborhood, and you feel no rush to get homework done, baths, clothes for the next day, rush, rush, rush.

    Just being able to relax, and let everyone do what they want to do.

    Oh, and my favorite color is 'blurple'. Anything in the blue/purple color range. Just makes me happy.

    Thanks for having the giveaway!

  186. Every summer my granddaughter comes to visit and one of our many activities is sewing. She has decided she likes to quilt more than sew clothes so I imagine we will make a quilt.

  187. I love sailing! I grew up in Michigan, so we would go sailing on the lake all the time. Now, in Colorado, i love the mountains, but miss sailing! Thanks for the awesome giveaway, I love all those fabrics!!!

    ReplyDelete
  188. i love the hot weather!

    so how do you get your fabric to look so pretty and folded so nice lol

    ReplyDelete
  189. What a great prize this would be to win...I am just now participating in a rainbow swap, so I'd combine all the fabrics to make one awesome rainbow quilt!

    I love the relaxed pace of summer with the kids just hanging out doing fun things together and being creative with their time. Also our summer vacation to New Hampshire is always a fun time!
