this season is for giving with sew mama Sew!

COMMENTS CLOSED WINNER ANNOUNCED SOON

For my next giveaway this week, I present you with an 11" X 11" pillow cover.
It is made of yellow and turquoise fabrics and made using Denyse Schmidt's wonky style.
The front is quilted with cotton batting and lined with muslin on the inside. The back of the pillow is solid turquoise and has an envelope closure. You will need to provide your own pillow form insert. I suggest using a form that is 12" X12" so that it fills out to the corners and adds lots of fluff.


For a second winner, I am offering this Quilt-It Kit by Denyse Schmidt. You can make your own wonky pillow in your own choice of fabrics along with 14 other patchwork projects including some quilt patterns. This box kit is like new but I did use it to make the above yellow pillow and even blew up the pattern pieces for you for the pillow, so they are included inside.


*If you would like a chance to win one of the above items then go ahead and leave a comment on this post. Let me know what other colors would look good together in this pillow pattern.

**If you would like a second entry, just leave another comment and let me know you're a follower ------> right over there, or by google reader or another way...

Be sure to leave your email in the comments if I can't get back to you by your profile or blog. Winners will be drawn by random, first drawn will get the pillow cover and the 2nd drawn will get the kit.
Good luck! the giveaway is open all week long, winner announced Saturday.

  35. Cute pillow! I found you when I was reading through the comments and followers on my blog, so I followed you, as well.

    I am trying to do something for my son's room in blue and orange, so that would be my vote. I think that might be some sports team, though, so I guess I'd have to be careful to not have it look like, er, whatever team that is.
