Posted at 01:22h in Uncategorized 162 Comments
Welcome to everyone from Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day!
I’m giving away this pillow cover I made. I love the grey and off-white – so clean-looking, serene and summery! I used Kona Medium Grey and Snow and it fits a 16″ pillow form.
Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaways are open until May 25. I will be happy to ship internationally if that is where the winner lives 🙂 So, to enter, leave me a comment and tell me whether you are a beginning, intermediate or advanced quilter. I’ll select the winner randomly after midnight US EDT on May 25.
For those of you who aren’t the lucky winner – if you really like this pillow, there is a free pattern download in my sidebar 🙂
Good luck to everyone and thanks for visiting!

I love to win the pillow top so then I wouldn't have to make one for myself 🙂

babalismePosted at 02:56h, 25 May
I'm a rookie! I am not used to quilting, and I'm really busy with my day work too so I'm taking very little step at a time, unfortunately you can't take quilting anywhere like you do with knitting. well, I could, but people would stare and the fabric would be scattered all over the streets.
wooLynnPosted at 02:52h, 25 May

AnonymousPosted at 19:46h, 24 May
beginner! i hope to finish a quilt by the end of this year….
hi, i'm brooke!Posted at 19:26h, 24 May
although i started helping my grandmother with her quilts very young, i would still qualify myself as a beginning quilter. it's something i've been wanting to get better at, but need to make more time for. i LOVE the pillow!
Homo minutusPosted at 19:22h, 24 May
I'm loving finding all these lovely sites today! Thanks so much. I'm pretty much a beginner quilter although quite good at sewing clothing so I'm hoping to transfer some skills 😉
Christie S.Posted at 19:09h, 24 May
Oh, I'd call myself an intermediate. I've sewing quilts before, but with particular pattern in mind. They are just a hodge podge of fabrics and colors.
Sean and LauraPosted at 18:56h, 24 May
so, so, so beginner!
ValPosted at 17:46h, 24 May

JinglePosted at 17:30h, 24 May

Love it so much that I'm off to try to tutorial:-) Been quilting for quite a while – but I'm loving all the great modern ideas floating around blogland!
gillPosted at 17:22h, 24 May
I love the grey and the simplicity of this design
I guess I'd call myself intermediate!
LizPosted at 17:05h, 24 May
I'm a very beginning quilter – as in I've wanted to do something for a long time, but haven't actually started yet! I'd like to start with something really simple – maybe just big bold blocks of color. This might be the summer!
JenniferPosted at 16:22h, 24 May
I guess I'd call myself intermediate… I've made four quilts.
redheadsandsprecklesPosted at 15:39h, 24 May
The pillow is simple and elegant. I am a beginner quilter…as in, I've thought about quilting a lot, picked out fabric, conceived an idea about what type of quilt I'd like to make, and even cut some fabric. However, a quilt has yet to be made. Some day. Thanks for the giveaway.
rosewendyPosted at 15:29h, 24 May
I'm a beginner quilter but sew quite a few other things. The pillow looks a simple pattern but I bet that is deceptive. All those straight lines would show up mistakes I bet.
mooncalfPosted at 15:24h, 24 May
I'd love to be entered. I love your quilting – so striking and modern.
SarahPosted at 14:52h, 24 May
Wow! Wish I could sew as good as you! I'm a beginning quilter
MorganPosted at 14:30h, 24 May

SashaPosted at 07:09h, 24 May
I'm definitely a beginner, i finished my first quilt (Sherbert pips fabric) this weekend. I've almost finished a rag quilt this week, but i don't think that counts and I'm working on some baby quilts with the scraps left over. I'm hoping to reach intermediate stage in a year or so (or maybe 20 quilts whichever is sooner!)
Dreaming MonetPosted at 06:13h, 24 May
how beautiful – what lovely colors and i love how 'clean' it looks!
i guess i am an advanced beginner quilter. thanks for the chance to win!

AimPosted at 01:15h, 24 May
I love sewing and I make a ton of bags and stuffed toys. But I haven't been brave enough to try a quilt, I have wanted to for a long time, I'm just scared to try a quilt. So I guess I am a pre- beginner.
If I happen to be the lucky winner you can contact me through my blog http://www.radseams.com/blog
JennyPosted at 00:20h, 24 May

JennadesignsPosted at 16:26h, 23 May
Beautiful pillow! I am in need of new pillows for my couch (have the pillow forms and invisible zippers, just can't decide on sometime the whole family would like). I really like this pattern though… might have to give it a try! I would consider myself an intermediate quilter!
