Sew Mama Sew Giveaway

Hello SewMamaSew giveaway bloghoppers and welcome to my little corner of the blogosphere! If you've never stopped in before, welcome and feel free to take a look around. Returning visitors, thanks so much for stopping in again!

In a nutshell, I'm a modern quilter with an obsession for brights, geometrics, English paper piecing, selvedges, paper piecing and lots and lots of colour! I have a serious case of Quilter's ADHD, which I'm embracing wholeheartedly. My favourite quote is "Creativity is intelligence having fun" - Einstein. My favourite place is my craft room. If you have both cats and quilts on your instagram feed, I will follow you. Chocolate is my favourite food group.


I'm giving away a sweet little bundle of five fat quarters. This fabric collection came from Spotlight (an Australian craft chain store) and features super cute globe trotting gnomes. It's fresh and bright, perfect for travel accessories, I-spys or those with an obsession with garden gnomes.


To go in the draw, simply leave me a comment telling me your dream holiday/vacation destination! I am based in Australia and will ship all over the world.

Edited: This giveaway has now closed and the winner has been notified. Thank you so much to everyone for entering. Having read all the comments I now want to travel the world!!

  1. My brother has just come back from a few years in Aus/NZ and although I'm really happy he's back I'm a little bummed that I didn't get the chance to visit him! Thanks for the great giveaway x

  3. I want to go to Scotland with my husband, but we want to do different things there. I am not much for hiking in the rain, I want to go castle watching. Maybe we can combine this somehow. Thanks!

  4. Garden gnomes are the best! As I kid I was kind of obsessed with them. I wanted a garden full of them. Maybe I can give them pride of place as cushions for my lounge chair on my (mini) balcony now?!
    My favorite vacation spot is with my family in Florida. Sun, Sea, Pool, quilt shops....... do I need to say more?

  25. It might be home to you but Australia and NZ is our pick for a destination wedding! I love the gnome print! I've been banned from buying any more "cute print" fabric because I can't justify how many I have (my fiancé says I have to wait until we have kids to make stuff for them) currently working on my first quilt ever and it's going to the cat because I figured he won't mind the mistakes (using "cute prints" on quilts for the cat apparently don't' count, see? he DOES want kids). Thanks for the chance!
