Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

Giveaway Now Closed

* Thanks to the Random Number Generator, we have a winner!!!

Nancy Sue

 you are the winner of the Practically Pippy Sew Mama Sew giveaway! Congratulation.
Here is what Nancy is planning on making with her winnings:

"I have a 5 yr old son who would go ballistic with a quilt made with your fabric and a map on the back. I don't think he'd get a wink of sleep, as he'd probably end up switching the quilt back and forth, wanting to study the map!"  

Welcome all Sew Mama Sew visitors to my little corner of the blogging world.  I'm so excited to be participating in the Sew Mama Sew giveaway this week.  I hope to meet some new and wonderful people and fellow bloggers this week.


Okay, I'm a bit late but I still want to share some sewing supply goodness with you.  This week, I will be giving away not 1, not 2, but 7 sample packs of Blank fabric's Heavy Metal collection.

Each pack comes with 7 pieces of boy themed fabric.  Construction trucks, police, fire rescue, airplanes, and helicopters.  By adding a blender or solid sashing to these fabrics, you could have a nice lap sized boys quilt by New Years!  To make your project even easier, I have a great world map panel (1.5 yards) in primaries that would be an  excellent backing for your project.

When I got these supplies, I had hoped to make a boy themed donation quilt for a local hospital's quilt drive.  I only was able to finish two quilts in time and never got around to finishing this last one.  Now, one lucky winner will get to make something out of these great fabrics!

Everyone has two ways to enter:
  1. Tell me what you plan to make with this fabric and who you are making it for in the comments below.
  2. Become a follower of my blog, and then write a separate comment letting me know.  If you are already a follower, just write a comment to let me know that you're already following my blog.
I will ship to the United States and Internationally.  Giveaway ends at 9 am PST on the 7th of December and a winner will be drawn at random later that day.  The winner must email me back within 48 hours or a new winner will be picked.  If you are a no-reply blogger, you must include your email so that I can contact you.  If I can't contact you, I will just pick a new winner.  Good luck to everyone.

  28. YOW what a great giveaway! I'd make a boy quilt for my best friend's son - maybe mix in some denim and make this a really tough strong quilt, one he can take to the beach whenever we have bonfires, or on the ferry to the islands when they camp out.

  31. Wow! My nephew would love that fabric with all the vehicles. He loves work vehicles and every Halloween dresses up like a forest ranger, coast guard, or fireman. I don't think he'd appreciate the map fabric, so that would be used in a 2nd quilt for my friends who have 4 kids under 4 years old. They started foster care and then got pregnant, surprise! They recently finalized their adoption of the 2 foster kids plus have 2 of their own kids. They're amazing people!

    Great giveaway! Thanks!

    And the large piece of fabric with the map is a gorgeous wallhanging for my sons' room. I'd put it on a light batting and a backing and quilt the latitude and longitude lines and the outlines of the continents, and add maybee some appliqué with a few flags or major sites in a few countries.
