Giveaway Day!

Giveaway is now closed.

Today is Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day.  I am  joining all of the fun!  Thank you for stopping by.  Welcome to my Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway.  I’m so glad you came by to sign up for the prize and maybe check out some of my projects. img_8009 Quick Facts: 

  • I’ve only been sewing for 5 years and blogging for 2 years.  I have enjoyed almost every minute of sewing.  I love being able to take the process from cut fabric, to creating a quilt top, and finishing the process on a long-arm quilting.  Plus quilty people are so supportive!


 I am taunting you with a sneak peek of my Friday finish!

  • I started out with the Janome DC 4030 and recently purchased a Bernina 750 QE.  2 very different machines, but I love both of them!


  • I mostly sew quilts because I struggle thinking in 3D i.e. bags and purses.


  • I am a pinner!   If you pin, your points will match up better and you will do a lot less ripping of seams.  The time it takes to put a pin in is much less time than ripping out seams.
  • Rule to live by:  I have a 3 rip rule.  If I have to rip 3 times, the 4th time I sew it is meant to be!
  • My favorite fabric designers are:  Tula Pink, Bonnie and Camille, Kate Spain, Sweetwater Fabrics, and Alison Glass (my new favorite).


Check out the rest of my 2015 finishes!

About My Pieced Life

I am in love with all things quilting. My sewing room has many works-in-progress and a large stash of fabric. I have big plans and lots of ideas of creations I would like to make. My wonderful husband supports my obsession and Carson, my Australian terrier, keeps me company while I sew.

    WOW – great question! I don’t buy up trends or complete lines. One of my favourite fabrics is I *think* by one of the Kaffe Fassett crowd. It has so many colours and the print is just so totally OUT THERE. I only ever had a FQ of it so I’m making it last.

  2. I don’t know if I have a favorite design but I do love batiks. As well I love the rich fabrics of Robert Kaufman and the bright colors of Kaffe Fassett. There are such gorgeous textiles out there it is impossible for me to pick just one.

  4. stanleybeagle says:

    Wow tough question so many fabrics come and go. I’d have to say most all the text prints but I am especially fond of the Tim Holtz eclectic elements line…all of them! Great giveaway, thanks for the lovely offerings.

    I don’t know enough about fabrics to know them by name 😦 I love anything geometric, especially polka dots

    I have 2 favorite bits of fabric and I don’t know the original designer…1 piece is from the late 1700’s a piece of homespun fabric passed down through my family to the ‘sewers’ in the family and the other piece a missionary brought back and it was created by ‘natives’ from the country she ministers.

  22. I love all of fabrics!

  23. Jessica P. says:

    I loved the line Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille. I never bought it and am super sorry I didn’t. powersjlc (at) gmail (dot) com . Thank you so much for the giveaway. Btw, I love the first quilt you have a picture of. I enjoy the way that the colored rectangles seem to float off of the quilt.

  28. Bobbie says:

    I love alot of fabric. It depends on the project and then again the project depends on the fabric. There was one fabric that I used on the back of a quilt – I believe it was a Susan Winget, oh it was gorgeous and a dream to work with. I love alot of riley Blake, Lori holt, jacquelynn steves sandy Gervais

  33. Kathie L says:

    I love the Kaffe Fassett fabric that looks like a paperweight. I have it in several colors.

  35. Katelyn says:

    I don’t know. I guess riley Blake

  36. wendy says:

    Wow, what a great prize! There are a lot of fabric collections that I’ve loved, but if I had to choose a fabric that I find most useful and use a lot in different colours, it would be Sketch, it’s a really useful print.
