Welcome to my blog! I'm Amanda, also known as the "Busy Little Quilter". I am so excited that you are here!
This is Sew, Mama Sew's Annual "May Giveaway Day". In the past, it was just for one day, but this year they are leaving it open for a week starting Monday, May 21 through Friday, May 25 at 5pm PST. Please be sure to visit Sew Mama Sew's blog for the links to enter other bloggers giveaways. And, if you would like to offer a giveaway on your blog, it's not to late to join in on the fun. Just go to Sew, Mama Sew's blog to find out more information.
I have been quilting for about 17 years. I was bit by the "quilting bug" when I spotted an appliqued heart quilt on the front cover of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine in a fabric store. I had never seen a quilting magazine before! Soon, I joined a small group of quilters and my quilting adventure began.
My first quilt was a "Log Cabin Quilt in a Day" by Eleanor Burns. Since that time I have made lots of quilts, and I have loved sharing my love of quilting with my friends, family, and the many bloggers that inspire me. I even became a Certified "Quilt in a Day" Teacher last year, with Eleanor Burns being my instructor. I guess you could say that my quilting adventure has taken me full circle. I never would have imagined when I was making my first quilt that one day I would be "Quilt in a Day" instructor.
Now that you know a little bit about me, here is what I'm giving away!
Since my favorite quilting magazine is American Patchwork and Quilting, I thought it would be fun to give away their "little sister" magazine, "Quilts and More".
This is the summer issue, and it's filled with quick and easy projects for beginners to experienced quilters. I really enjoy the "Scrap Lab" where Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree and Co. and Camille Roskelley of Thimbleblossoms ,and one other guest (the one for this issue is Monica Solorio-Snow (aka Happy Zombie), make something special from a specific set of materials. This particular challenge uses a Charm Pack and 1/2 yard of a solid cream.
I can't do a giveaway without including something from Quilt in a Day, so I am tossing in a fun pattern, Dessert Time Quilt.
You can use a Layer Cake and a Jelly Roll from a line of fabrics, or you can use fabrics from your own "stash". I love the piano key borders, and you will love learning how to create them.
