National Sewing Month Give-Away

I hope all of you are sewing up a storm for National Sewing Month.  Me, not so much, but I am working on getting the Cottage in sewing shape.  I plan on spending some parts of every day out there for the rest of the year - and forever - so if it's not finished in time to sew this month, that's okay.

Kimberly at the Fat Quarter Shop has sent me four patterns for a give-away to help us celebrate National Sewing Month. 

Yes, they're the latest Miss Rosie's patterns by Carrie Nelson!!  Some of you are currently making the Viola (or Voila!) pattern, and it's been so much fun seeing all of the fabric choices.  I've been eyeing the Full Circle or the Paris Texas patterns thinking I might use my vast collection of  Minick & Simpson patriotic colors, and also Otis using the V and Co. fabrics I collected last year.  The patterns are all so wonderful no matter which fabric we use. 

One thing I particularly like about the new patterns would be the booklet format.  No more shuffling pages around! 

I've listed some questions below.  To be entered in the contest, all you have to do is answer at least ONE of them correctly. If you don't know the answers, take a guess

If your comment doesn't link to your blog, please be sure to leave an email address in case you're the winner.  There's nothing worse than being picked and I can't tell you you've won!

Remember, you just have to answer one correctly.  Or you can answer all of them.  Or you can just guess!  Probably almost anything you answer will put you in the drawing.  Here goes:

1.  What state did Carrie live in before she moved to Dallas for that dream job with Moda?

2.  Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. has published how many patterns through the years?

3.  "Birdie, Birdie, Birdie."  Name the movie.

4.  What was the score of the LSU game last week?

5.  How long has the Fat Quarter Shop been in business?

Just put the number and your answer.  Easy peasy.  Winner will be announced Sunday morning.

A huge "thank you" to the Fat Quarter Shop for the give-away patterns!  This is a great idea to help us celebrate National Sewing Month!  Thank you, thank you!

I know Carrie lived in Arizona before moving to Texas. Don't know the LSU score, but my sister graduated from LSU with a Masters and PhD---does that count? LOL :)

Sorcha girl said...

Carrie Nelson did live in Arizona before moving to Texas for the Moda job. Any guess at the other questions would be embarrassingly wrong. Thanks for the chance in the giveaway. I'm glad to read that you are "up and about" during your recuperation.
