Giveaway Day

The giveaway is closed now.
Thank you for your participation!


I am participating for the first time in the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.
I love all is related to fabrics and threads and instinctively, almost every time I see something made with them I wonder: How could I do this thing otherwise?
So, I began to create patterns. My first one was released a few month ago and I will give it away to two of you.

You may find information about it here.

I have a question for you: What do you prefer: piecing or quilting?
If you want to participate in the draw, leave your answer at the end of this post.

I will choose randomly the 2 winners.

Giveaway is open until May 16.

 

If you want to come back here, on my blog,  please use this easy reminders:

Thank you!

Thanks for this chance to win!
I love to quilt, it is much closer to the finish, so I am much motivated. Quilting turns suddenly the project in to a nice work, change the texture and the shapes...

i love every step of the way!

The Nikkels said...

I prefer quilting, and would love even more if I could afford a long arm :)

Jen Barnard said...

I like both, but I think I prefer piecing, because it's easier to fit through my machine.

Cute pattern! I love piecing, but am trying to embrace quilting as well.

I like both but I prefer piecing!

Ella said...

I prefer piecing! I love the patterns!

Jules said...

I prefer piecing because my machine can't handle quilting and I feel I ruin the potential of the quilt with my lack of quilting savvy. Thanks for the opportunity!

Victoria said...

I like them both. What I do not like is creating the quilt sandwich and the binding.

Desiree said...

Piecing as I'm only learning to FMQ

I love the piecing part of quilting. I'm not good at the quilting part, the most I can do is Straight line or Echo quilting. I would love to learn how to FMQ.

Margaret said...

I like the piecing part, but always quilt my own quilts as well.

Piecing.

Holly U said...

jellybean said...

Piecing Thank you for the giveaway

JDBrown said...

piecing is currently my favorite but i think that's just because i haven't done enough quilting to feel comfortable yet. i bought a new machine for my birthday and free motion is on my list to master!

Jacklynn said...

Piecing is my favorite part of sewing, especially when all the points come together perfectly. Thanks for the give away!

Cyndi @ The Nosy Pepper said...

I've only made one quilt lo, but i liked the quilting part a lot :)

Lia*s Handmades said...

I think I like both the same. I'm always a bit nervous about the whole quilting aspect as I'm not really good yet, at least with handling bigger pieces, but I love the feeling when you've finished a smaller project and it turned out great.
Many thanks for the chance to win! :)

Krista said...

Piecing. I do enjoy quilting, but not the pinning. One day I dream of owning a long arm though…

Bonnie58 said...

I prefer piecing, but also enjoy quilting. Great giveaway. Thanks so much for sharing

Cindy Dahlgren said...

I used to prefer piecing, but now I'm enjoying the quilting process too, and can't wait to learn more. I saw your picture, and thought it was counted cross stitch, it would make a great pattern for a block in a sampler.

Amber said...

Probably piecing. I love the design! Its so simple and clean!

Fran said...

I really love all aspects of piecing & quilting (apart from basting!) but I think I prefer quilting as it means I'm closer to finishing a project. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

I definitely prefer piecing over quilting LOL! I just love your pattern!

I enjoy piecing. That's me - nothing fancy or extraordinary. You have done an amazing job on your country home pillow cover. Very unique and quite striking. Thank you for being a part of Sew Mama Sew giveaway and giving all of us a chance to win these.

I'll say quilting. But I've never quilted a large quilt so maybe I would change my mind if I had a big project to do :)

WhoMom said...

So far I prefer quilting, but you never know!

WhoMom said...

Piecing, but I just got a new mid-arm and am going to try free motion quilting......

Julia said...

I like piecing. Finding new patterns to try is so fun! Thanks for the giveaway!

KarenD. said...

I like quilting, because not only do you get to enjoy that part of your craft, but you get to look at all the beautiful piecing, the color combinations, and the design while you're doing it.

Kathy H said...

i really enjoy the piecing, seeing the quilt slowly arrive.

mayascreationsdotcom said...

I enjoy piecing because I am good at it (long time sewer). Next I need to conquer the quilting part.

Kayla Yapuncich said...

Thanks for the chance! I love piecing more - but wanting the finished product pushes me through the quilting!

Lady J said...

I like to do piecing.

I like both, but for different reasons, piecing is productive and relaxing, quilting is challenging to me, the mix makes it fabulous. Thanks for the chance!

Afton Warrick said...

I like the piecing best, so the tops to be quilted are starting to pile up. I get nervous that the quilting won't live up to what I already have going. I just need to bite the bullet.

Swedish Scrapper said...

I still prefer the piecing, but I know i will get over that one day and love both parts of the process!

Tamie said...

I love piecing and hand quilting. Thanks for participating in the Giveaway Day.

Robin said...

By far piecing is preferred over quilting. FMQing scares me!!!

MrsV said...

Definitely quilting. Piecing is just a means to an end.

Amy's Crafty Shenanigans said...

I love piecing - quilting and basting are my least favourite parts because I am no good at either!!!

Connie Cain said...

I have only quilted on quilt so far, being a newbie. I do have a couple of tops and a "few" WIPs. :)

Karrie S said...

i really do like both equally! It's the cutting that can be tiresome :) ksmith8@emich.edu

Texas Quilting Gal said...

Congrats on your pattern! It's super cool and would look great in my living room. I love piecing more I think, only b/c I'm more experienced. I do enjoy free motion quilting when I get to it, but I HATE basting, so I have tops laying around b.c I don't want to prep them to be quilted!

Beth said...

I love both! Just started to love FMQ again so that is new. Love the pattern too!

Kelly Wilson said...

I love piecing more at the moment. I will probably enjoy the quilting process when I get more experience. Thanks! Cute pattern - I love the colors you used.

Miggsie said...

I prefer piecing. Thanks for the giveaway!

Erin Marie said...

I prefer piecing because I can do it in bursts. However, once I get going with quilting, I do enjoy that. I need a second machine so I can switch between quilting and piecing. Right now, it involves switching the feet on my machine and possibly the thread. It drives me insane and makes me hate switching tracks.

sweetandsaltydesigns said...

I prefer the stop and start of piecing, but love the effect the quilting adds! I basically love most steps other than layering and pinning/basting!

Shanny said...

I prefer the piecing. Quilting I dawdle until I cannot delay anymore lol

Sarah said...

I enjoy both about the same!

Southern Gal said...

I've never tried piecing so I'll have to say quilting! Thanks!

Breanna S. said...

I prefer piecing.

farah said...

I definitely prefer the piecing- still learning the quilting aspect..Thanks for the chance!

Karen said...

I like quilting because it doesn't have to be as perfect!
