Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day


Welcome to my little corner of cyberspace. I've wanted to join in on the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day for a few years but things just didn't fall in place for me to participate before. Not this year. I've been cutting 5" squares for a baby quilt I'm working on and happened to stumble onto a blog post a few days ago about the giveaway. Since I've cut out more than 500 squares this week, I have fabric to share, ready to go and I have time to post today.

So, without further ado, I'm giving away not 1 but 2 stacks of 64 5" novelty print squares. Both are identical fabrics though the pictures within each square may vary slightly. They come from a range of designers and manufactures from Timeless Treasures Snack Attack to Robert Kaufman Urban Zoologie. They're pretty much gender neutral and if sewn all together in an 8x8 square would make a 36" square for a baby blanket without borders. (I'd suggest borders to make it a little bigger.) Here's what you get...

To win, please leave a comment and answer the question: What is your favorite tv show(s) and/or movie(s)(current or older)? I'm currently hooked on Arrow, Dracula, Supernatural, Doctor Who and The Walking Dead, though I'm also a big fan of Buffy and Firefly. Basically, I like darker shows preferably with a healthy dose of sarcastic humor and I can't pick just one favorite.A commenter just reminded me. I forgot Castle! How could I?

The giveaway ends Friday, December 13 at 8 p.m. EST. I'll pick 2 winners at random either with a random pick generator or numbers in a hat depending on how many comments I get. Please make sure that I can contact you. If you don't have a blog, please include your email addy. If I can't get in touch with you, I'll have to choose someone else.

Good luck and have fun checking out all the great blogs taking part in the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!
