Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day – December 7, 2016

Welcome to the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

SMS Giveaway Day

If this is your first time visiting, Welcome! I hope you enjoy what you see and stay for a visit. For my loyal followers, a huge Thank You!! You guys are such an inspiration to me and I treasure the friendships I’ve made through this blog. You rock!

This is my fourth time participating in the SMS Giveaway Day – which really lasts several days. It is so much fun to visit other bloggers and find new blogs to follow. Of course, entering all the giveaways is a lot of fun too!

This giveaway is for a $20 gift certificate from Fort Worth Fabric Studio. I love to shop and I love fabric, so I thought combining the two would be a great gift for someone during this holiday season.

20-giftcertificate

For those who are visiting for the first time, here’s a little bit about myself.

My name is Beth, and for the last 3-1/2 years I have been a full-time quilter and pattern designer. You can find my PDF patterns in my Etsy shop and through Craftsy, and my local quilt shop carries print copies. I have a folder full of sketches on scraps of paper, napkins, etc. – you never know when/where an idea will hit! I have way more ideas than time, so I don’t think I’ll ever run out of quilts to make. 🙂

Every Monday I host a Main Crush Monday linky party for everyone to link up whatever project, tool, fabric, or idea that has them excited to be sewing that week. You can find more info under the Main Crush Monday tab at the top of this page. Having a Monday linky party is a great start to the week, and there’s always so many inspiring projects to see. I hope you’ll join us!

2017 will be a busy and fun year. I have a secret project I’ll be sharing in March/April (one that I’m dying to share with you!) It’s so hard sometimes to be quiet about those special projects!

I’m also excited to be co-hosting the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, along with Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl and Leanne @ she can quilt.

New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop

Sign-ups start on February 1, so be sure to check back for more information. I was part of the hop when I started my blog in 2014, and the information I received was invaluable. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

I’m also working on a Polka Dot Quilt-Along that will be taking place in the second half of the year. It will be a lot of fun and I hope you’ll join in.

Now, On to The Giveaway!

The giveaway is open to anyone, domestic and international. Please be sure to leave your email address if you are a no reply blogger so I can contact you if you are the winner.

Entries are open today, December 7 through Sunday, December 11. The winner will be announced on Monday, December 12 in the Main Crush Monday post.

  1. To be entered, leave a comment letting me know if you prefer a mystery quilt-along or one where you see the finished quilt before starting.
  2. Followers, existing and new, can get an extra entry by letting me know how you follow (Bloglovin, Email (link in sidebar), Instagram)

Thanks so much for visiting and playing along. I hope you’ll become a follower and join me on this exciting quilting journey!

About Beth

I’m a wife, mother of two, and lover of all things crafty. I love to cook up new things in the kitchen and in my craft room, and sometimes get “licking the spoon” mixed up with “licking the fabric”!!

  1. I follow on instagram as tailtwistr_1

  2. I dont know yet, ask me in a couple of months as I am doing my first qal right now.

  3. Susan McGregor says:

    Although a mystery quilt sounds like fun, I need to picture the completed quilt in my mind before starting so I would like to see the finished quilt.

  4. juditupp says:

    I follow on instagram @juditupp

  5. juditupp says:

    I think a mystery quilt would be fun.

  6. Jannette B. says:

    I’ve almost always enjoyed the mystery quilts that I’ve done, but I really prefer seeing what I’m going to end up with.

  7. Lia says:

    I like to know what you’re sewing beforehand, that way you can pick the fabrics you want and know you’re doing something you actually like.
    Many thanks for your giveaway!

  8. Kelly O. says:

    I prefer to know what I am creating 🙂 Merry Christmas!

  9. Emily says:

    I like mysteries, though it helps to be at least a little familiar with the designer’s style. I did the 2-16 New Quilt Blogger’s Hop, so let me thank you on behalf of the 2017 participants because I know how much work our group of organizers did for us!

  10. Tina says:

    I signed up for your newsletter

  11. Tina says:

    I like to see the quilt because it determines the fabric I choose.

  12. Holly D says:

    I think I would like to see the finished quilt beforehand. Thanks.

  13. shyenipaul says:

    I like to know what i’m making beforehand

  14. allisonsews says:

    I’m not a fan of quilting surprises so would not make a mystery quilt. I like to know up front that I like the design. That said, I don’t do a lot of quilt alongs either.

  15. I prefer to know the outcome of the QAL!

  16. I am a follower on Bloglovin and also by email. kthurn(at)bektel(dot)com

  17. Hi, Beth! I really don’t like surprises therefore, I am not a fan of mystery quilt alongs. I like to know what I’m making right up front. That way, I can choose my fabrics better.

    Now following you Beth via Bloglovin. Thank you.

  21. Diane Beavers says:

    Hi Beth, it’s wonderful to meet you via your blog. Love a mystery quilt and that way as a novice quilter it’s a surprise and a bit wonky like my skills.

  22. I like to see the finished quilt. I follow you by email.

  23. Kim M says:

    I want to be able to see the finished quilt before I start. Quilting takes too much time and I have so many projects I want to make to spend time on a mystery quilt that may not be my style, IMO.

  24. piroska says:

    I follow via Bloglovin (Pippirose)

    must know ahead of time! I like to start with the big picture, then get into details.

  29. Megan Collins says:

    I am now following through IG! Can’t wait to see this surprise project!

  30. Megan Collins says:

    I like to see the finished quilt! I have limited time to devote to quilting, and like to know what I’m getting into first. 😉

  31. In quilting I prefer to see the finished project first but in knitting I like the mystery knit alongs.

  32. Sandra Visser says:

    I prefer to see what I will be making.

    syvisser@gmail(dot)com

  33. Kei says:

    As far as quilt alongs go, I love a good mystery! 🙂

  34. Mysteries appeal to me. If I see a quilt and like it, I’ll give it a try on my own anyway. Thanks for the chance!

  35. JoanG says:

    I want to see the quilt first. I’ve been known to collect all the clues, but not start until I see the quilt. There have been a few clunkers that I was glad I hadn’t started.

  36. Jessica P. says:

    I follow you via Bloglovin.

  37. Jessica P. says:

    I don’t like surprises. I would rather know before I begin a quilt-a-long.

    New follower via bloglovin!

  40. Tina voyles says:

    As a newbie I need to see the finished product first!

  41. Jennifer Ankeny says:

    I followed you with bloglovin

  42. Jennifer Ankeny says:

    I like to see the finished quilt first, but that is probably because I am new to quilting and I feel a little unsure about my abilities!

  44. thebiasedge says:

    I love to see the finished quilt before I decide to participate.

  49. Jeneta Masson says:

    I’ve never participated in a mystery, but I think I’d like to try one.

  50. Angie Sue says:

    My quilting time is precious and rare — so i definitely want to know what I’m working on before I start! No mysteries for me….

  51. Ruth L says:

    I prefer to see the big picture and know where I’m headed, so no surprises for me!

  52. Kathe Gardner says:

    I like to see what I;m doing but surprises are always fun.

  53. Kathe Gardner says:

    Mystery, please.

  54. amandachristensens says:

    I’m not an experienced quilter, so I think I would prefer to see the finished project ahead of time.

  55. Mary K Finn says:

    I’m not much on mystery quilts. With limited time to sew I like to see what I’ll be working on.

  56. Jordan Lyons says:

    I follow you on bloglovin!

  57. Jordan Lyons says:

    I prefer to know what I’m making, it helps me to pick out colors and I have so many quilts on my list I want to make sure its one I want in the end!

  58. Barb N says:

    I’m a new follower on Bloglovin’ and email. Oh – and I noticed I have your Snap Crackle Pop pattern in a stack of fabrics just waiting to be turned into a quilt!

  59. Barb N says:

    Mystery quilt alongs give me the heebee geebees! Guess I just need to trust the process 🙂

  60. British American says:

    I don’t think I would try a mystery one, in case I ended up not exactly liking how it would turn out – like maybe it wouldn’t be my style.

  61. Kate says:

    I love mystery quilt alongs. But I usually only participate in the ones that give you good guidance on selecting your fabrics.

  62. Mercedes A says:

    I follow you on bloglovin

  63. Mercedes A says:

    I can appreciate them both. But if I had to chose, I guess it would be myster quilts.

  64. Charlotte DuBose Lunsford says:

    I like to see the finished product first!

  65. Hi Beth. I follow you on both Instagram and Bloglovin.

  66. I have participated in a number of mystery quilt projects and many QAL’s where I know the finished quilt. I don’t know that I have a preference… It is just fun sewing along with others. A mystery can be a bit more challenging if you don’t have some advice on fabric selection! lol

  67. Nicole Sender says:

    I’m a Bloglovin follower: Nicole Sender

  68. Nicole Sender says:

    I prefer knowing what the project looks like when finished. I can plan better knowing what the end result will be.

  69. sarah says:

    I like to see the one I’ll be working on, but haven’t done a quilt along yet!

  70. deb says:

    I’d like to know what it would look like. but I’m wild and could go the other way too. Surprise me!

  71. Amy says:

    I’d like to know how the finished quilt should look like.

  72. KayB says:

    No mystery quilts for me. I prefer to know what the quilt will look like before I start.

  73. Linda S says:

    I prefer to see the finished quilt first, however, the one mystery quilt I did was fun. Thanks for the chance,

  74. Sarah says:

    Right now I have limited time and resources, so I think I like seeing the finished quilt to know what I’m getting into. But I love the concept of a mystery quilt, possible a small sized one like a wall hanging?

  75. gail johnson says:

    I like a real good mystery quilt along.

  76. Rebecca K says:

    I’m now following you on IG!

  77. Rebecca K says:

    I like to see the finished quilt (unless it’s a mystery in a day or two). I may be impatient!

  78. Amanda M says:

    Surprises can be fun, but I like to have an idea of the finished quilt.

  79. Mystery! I follow on Bloglovin.

  80. Dawn F. says:

    I have done one mystery quilt, and didn’t know how it would look when I started. Thankfully, the finished product was great, but it does take a little bit of faith to buy a lot of fabric for a quilt when you don’t know what it will look like in the end! It was fun to make, though 🙂

  81. Tamie says:

    I’m following on IG too.

  82. Tamie says:

  85. I want to see the finished product first!

  86. LeeAnn says:

    Ironically, I have a link to your blog on my blog but now I’ve hooked up via BlogLovin too.

  87. LeeAnn says:

    I’ve never done a mystery quilt. Frankly, I’ve only been quilting for a year and already have a backlog of projects so I’m reluctant to start another one until I get my kids’ quilts done. I’m not totally allergic to the idea eventually though.

  88. Sherry says:

    I am an new follower through Bloglovin and on Instagram.

  89. Sherry says:

    I have enjoyed the few Mystery Quilt alongs I have participated in. I have liked some finished projects better than others but have enjoyed the process.

  90. Tish says:

    I follow you on bloglovin and on instagram.

  91. Tish says:

    I am a mystery quilt junkie. I say sew blindly and trust completely 🙂 It’s kind of like the trust fall of quilting.

  92. Sherry VF says:

    I definitely want to know what the finished quilt is going to look like before I start on a project (unless it’s an improv quilt). good question. sjvonfumetti at yahoo dot com

  94. Shauna says:

  96. Breanna Sackrey says:

    I am a follower on bloglovin

  97. Breanna Sackrey says:

    I think I would love a mystery quilt along if I got to see a sample block beforehand. Otherwise I would only go for one where I could see the finished product.

  98. Sue says:

    I usually prefer to see the finished quilt first

  99. bee says:

    mystery quilts can be fun to do!

  101. Diane M says:

    I haven’t participated in a quilt along yet but would like to see the finished quilt first. Thanks!

  102. Jess says:

    I like to see what the finish quilt is going to look like. (I can’t concentrate on anything – even a book I’m reading – if I don’t know how it ends).

    I think I’m not a no-reply, but just in case: jhunsberger (at) gmail (d0t) c0m

  107. Tac says:

    I prefer to see where I’m going.

  108. Margaret says:

    I definitely prefer to know what I am making, so that I can decide if I want to get involved or not. There are so many things I want to create, that I would be upset if I spent precious resources on something I didn’t care for.

  109. While I love the idea of a mystery QAL, I finish so few quilts that I’m not willing to attempt a project if I don’t know how it will turn out. Thanks for the giveaway!

  136. Maryellen McAuliffe says:

    I follow via bloglovin.

  137. Cathy Calloway says:

    I don’t generally like the mystery quilt idea. But I have been doing the splendid Sampler 2 blocks a week and it has been a blast, so maybe I will have to rethink it…. generally I like to look before I leap!

  138. Camille says:

    I like to see what I am creating. Mystery quilts make me anxious about my fabric selections.

  139. Christine M says:

    I do not enjoy mystery quilts. I need to be able to see what the finished Quilt will look like before I begin.

    I like to see the end before I get there! Thanks for the giveaway.

  149. Nikki says:

    I love the idea of mystery quilts but I have never participated because for the time and money I would have to invest, I want to know that I will like the finished product!

  183. jesshea says:

    I like the idea of a mystery but I’d really prefer to see the finished quilt first.

  184. Sarah J says:

    A mystery QAL sounds fun, but I have very limited time to sew, so I prefer to see the finished product ahead of time.

  190. Mary D says:

    I prefer to see the quilt I am going to make and decide them if I would like to participate. I have participated in a couple of online mystery quilts but have decided it is probably not the best route for me to go.

    At times I have found that the style of mystery quilt did not appealed to my aesthetics. So the quilt tops were never finished or never fully assembled. If I see the quilt project beforehand, I will know if I truly want to participate.

  191. Julie says:

    I’m somewhere in between. I’ve seen some mysteries and I haven’t liked them at the end. I think I prefer a quilt-along. I’m always most worried about getting the fabrics wrong for mystery quilts!

  192. Kathy S. says:

    I love both types of quilt alongs (mystery or traditional). Now that I work more hours per week, I do enjoy quilt alongs more if they have do-able weekly instructions.

  193. R.Kay says:

    I prefer to see the quilt before beginning. I suppose it’s because I am a touch OCD and couldn’t stand it if I didn’t know what I was making.

    Thank you for the chance to win!

    I prefer to see what I am getting into. I am very pattern picky and too often I would end up with something I did not like at the end.

  202. Elana Goldberg says:

    I love the idea of your polka dot quilt BOM. I will have to check that out. I much prefer a finished quilt. I often don’t love the busy sampler quilts, so knowing what I’m working with is a big plus for helping me stay focused. I wish there were more bloggers doing charity quilts who ask for a block or two as submissions. Are those called online quilting bees? Sometimes I feel like helping with a project but can’t do an entire quilt. If I can learn a new skill and make something for others, that’s a win-win. Just another thought. Thanks.

  203. Sue says:

    I have never done a mystery quilt along. Not sure if I would want to spend the money on fabric if I didn’t know what the finished product would look like.

    I love to do quilt alongside. I do like to know what the end result is first though.

  226. gail says:

    I’ve never had the nerve to do a quilt-along, and I suspect it would take the excitement about seeing the finished project to help me take the plunge. 🙂

    One where you see the finished quilt first.

    I am in the middle of my first 2 quilt a longs right now. One is the Meadow Mystery and the other is the Quilter’s Planner Scrappy Picnic Plaid. I think a good mix is what I need. The mystery made fabric choices harder, but it also is fun to do and be surprised.

    I like to see the finished quilt ahead of time. For mystery quilts, I tend to save them until the end to decide if I will make it.

  258. audrey says:

    I really like to know the end result of the quilt along, but love the ones that can be personalized along the way!

  259. Melissa says:

    I like to know what it will look like ahead of time. That way I can decide what fabric I would like to use with it.

  264. I have never done a mystery quilt before but it does sound intriguing. I would need very good, clear instructions. The value of seeing a finished quilt is like seeing the picture of a finished jigsaw puzzle.

    New to quilting…mystery quilt sounds interesting

  277. Tammy says:

    My sewing time is so limited, that I really need to see the finished quilt before deciding to participate. But the idea of a mystery quilt has always appealed to me.

  278. I like the “idea” of a mystery quilt along but never quite have the guts to join just in case I don’t like it. So I’m going with no.

  279. Ramona Murray says:

    I like to see the finished quilt before starting!

  280. tarnia says:

    I have never done a mystery, simply because I need to see the finished product before I start. However, I have never seen a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt I haven’t liked, so maybe I should just loosen up a bit!

    Mystery, definitely (as long as it was within my skill level before starting)

  288. Kristin says:

    I have never done a quilt along before (but I might, now that I’m not working full time), but my aunt said that she did a mystery quilt along one time and it didn’t work out for her because of color placement. Plus, with my personality (control freak!!!) I would probably have to say NO MYSTERY! 🙂

  291. Becca says:

    Oh, tough call! I think mystery quilts are exciting, but I like to be assured that I’ll like the style before I start. I did a few saturday samplers at a local shop and got lucky in that I love both quilts, but haven’t really liked most of the quilts before or after the ones I did. It’d be a lot of work to end up with something you don’t like!

  292. Veronica Kenney says:

    I follow by email! Thank you!

  293. Veronica Kenney says:

    I prefer to see the whole quilt. But many times I take a quilt pattern and modify it to suit my vision. So the mystery quilt along is probably a little more frustratingly restrictive, or fearfully restrictive to me. Thank you!

    I would definitely want to see the finished product before I start. I did a mystery quilt a few years ago (my first and last). While it was exciting to work on, I really did not care for the finished quilt and never did finish it.

    This is my second time doing Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilt and it is lots of fun. I’ve never done any quiltalong otherwise but it would be safer to see the design first to choose fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

  315. Summer says:

    I prefer there NOT to be a mystery. I’m not interested in using my fabric to make something that I’m not going to like in the end. I want to plan NOT to be disappointed. For mystery QALs, sometimes I’ll gather all the clues, then work on it when I see the finished layout.

  316. hamudale says:

    A mystery quilt sounds good.

    Thank you for the giveaway.

  317. Marguerite says:

    I enjoy mystery quilts because it forces me out of my comfort zone. They have helped me learn to visualize, as that is not second nature to me. I found you on Bloglovin. I’m new and am not really savvy about blogs but I willing to learn.

  321. Tiffany says:

    I usually have way too much going to join a quilt-along without knowing the end result. I have to seriously budget my sewing time as it is. ?
    That being said, hopefully in 10 years when my littles are older, I will have the guts to jump into something like that. A mystery quilt sounds SO FUN!

  322. Sallie says:

  324. I like to see a finished quilt. I have done three mysteries and two were great and one was not. Still deciding what to do with that one.

  334. Jayne says:

    Can’t wait to see your secret project! I follow via IG!

  335. Jayne says:

    I have to see what the design is before I commit to it! Mystery quilts scare me!

  336. Laura says:

    I like Bonnie Hunter’s mysteries because she uses scraps, and I don’t have to commit to buying fabric to participate. If I don’t like the quilt in the end, I can donate it. I would rather see the pattern of quilts that use yardage, so I can decide if I like the quilt before buying the fabric.

  337. Audrey says:

    I’ve only done a handful of QALs, but only one was a mystery. Mystery QALs can be nerve wracking! I worried about my fabric choices and placement. It turned out awesome in the end, but it was stressful for me at times.

  338. Karen Goad says:

    I wait for a mystery quilt to be finished before I give it thought as I am poor at color choice until I see the finished product

  345. I enjoy hosting mystery quilts but taking part in quilt alongs that I see the finished quilt.

  346. melfunkm says:

    I forgot to say I like both the mystery and the final show before I start. It really depends on what my frame of mind is. I normally will try a mystery and find out it is more difficult than I thought I could do, so a mystery normally stretches me.

  347. melfunkm says:

    I follow through the email for bloglovin.

  348. I follow you by email and on Instagram 🙂

  349. I think I’d enjoy a mystery quilt, although I haven’t done one yet. I think it would be good to stretch myself by not being able to see the finished product!

  350. Vicki in MN says:

    Oh I definitely like to see the finish quilt before I start.

  351. Hi Beth, I like both ways! Having an option for a small version is nice like a table topper size, just to try it out.

  352. SarahZ says:

    I’m currently working on my first mystery quilt. I’d rather see the finished quilt before cutting into my fabric. But it lets me do some mindless sewing in my free time. Will I do one again, I’ll let you know when the mystery is over.

  356. Shellie says:

    Hello Beth!! Normally I like to see a picture of the finished quilt, that way I can plan out where all the fabrics. I have to say though, I’ve done 2 mystery quilts and they turned out great! I can remember thinking this is going to be a mess, but in the end they were gorgeous!!!!! I follow you by email and enjoy every single post you make!! Happy Holidays!!!!!!!

  357. I like the ones you can see the finished quilt prior to starting. But mystery quilts are fun too.
