Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day - May 6th, 2015

Welcome to the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!


This is my fourth time participating in the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.  I love Sew Mama Sew (I became a Sew Mama Sew Contributor last year) and I enjoy spending few many, many hours entering giveaways and finding new wonderful blogs each SMS Giveaway Day.   

So onto the giveaway....who wants some delicious Kona solids?  How about a 12-Piece Blueberry Thicket Fat Quarter Bundle of Kona cotton solids by Robert Kaufman?  I am such a fan of Kona cottons, they have such a great feel and so many colors.




For those who are new here, here is a little about myself (for those that are returning, thank you!).

My name is Cheryl and I am a chemical engineer/patent agent by day and a quilter at night.  I have a wonderfully supportive husband who allowed me to turn the guest bedroom into my quilting room, an almost 8 year old son and 5 year old daughter.  I love designing quilt patterns and doing quilty math which allow me to combine my quilting skills with my engineering and technical writing backgrounds.  


In addition to my blog, you can find me hanging out on Instagram as MeadowMistDesigns.  I sell my patterns and sewing accessories on etsy (as Meadow Mist Designs) and patterns on craftsy (craftsy also has a couple of free patterns).

I hosted a free Mystery Quilt-a-long in 2014/2015 and I am getting ready to start the next one in June!  I hope you will consider joining in!





Below are some of my recent finishes in the past few months...



Now on to enter the giveaway!! 
This giveaway is open to everyone, everywhere in the world and is for one (1) Blueberry Thicket Fat Quarter Bundle which includes 12 fat quarters of Kona cotton solids. This giveaway starts today (Wednesday May 6th) and will run until Sunday May 10th at 8 p.m. EST.  (To lower shipping costs, the fabric bundle might be shipped disassembled.)
