Sew Mama Sew Tutorial - Oakshott HST Pillow

Just a quick post (and giveaway) to let you know that I have a tutorial over at Sew Mama Sew and am being introduced as a contributor today!



My tutorial is an Oakshott Half Square Triangle Pillow made using 99 HST and the Oakshott Impressions fabric collection.





I think that a celebration is in order!  How about a little giveaway?

This giveaway will be for a $10 gift certificate to Contemporary Cloth for anyone, anywhere in the world.  This giveaway will be open until Wednesday April 30th at 10pm EST.

(Contemporary Cloth sponsored the Sew Mama Sew post and supplied the fabric for the pillow, however, this giveaway is not sponsored by them but was paid for by myself)

To enter:

(1)  Leave a comment, any comment.  If you would like a topic to comment on, let me know if the amount of quilting you do varies over the course of a year or stays roughly the same.



(2) Followers (new and old) get a second entry, leave a separate comment letting me know how you follow.

Thank you all so much!!

(Note:  On normal posts I try to reply to each and every comment, but on giveaway posts having so many comments it is difficult to respond to each one)

  8. It's a lovely pillow, it's like a mist is hanging over the colours... My quilting would vary depending on the quilt/project I'm working on, and how many other commitments require my input.

  9. Congrats on being a Sew, Mama, Sew contributor! I think I sew more during the summer because the days are longer and I feel more energized. Then I have a burst of mad dash quilting in October as Christmas becomes very real to me, all of a sudden.

  11. Love the pillow. Nice quilting on it. I don't need to win, just wanted to say I follow your blog via feedly. My quilting time varies by where I am in the running season. Right now I'm injured, so am quilting up a storm. When I'm training for a marathon, I don't sew as much, if at all-running has to come first. Definitely and ebb and flow with my crafting time. I do follow Nancy Ziemans 10-20-30 minutes to sew principles, or I'd go nuts! How do you do it?

  17. I've really been drawn to the Oakshott cottons lately. I love solids for the more complicated piecing patterns, and the Oakshott just adds sophistication. Your cushion is the perfect example of that.

  19. My amount of quilting varies. I am now retired and I thought I would quilt continuously, but life happens.
