Small Stash Sewing - Book Giveaway

Small Stash Sewing - Giveaway


So, the kind folks at Wiley Publishing sent me a copy of Small Stash Sewing that I didn't need.  I guess it's time for my first giveaway!  Here are some of my favorite projects from Small Stash Sewing: 24 Projects Using Designer Fat Quarters by Melissa Averinos.

A funky belt.

A scrappy bath mat.



An adorable dress.



Something for my boy.

  7. I love seeing what you create with vibrant colors and found you through flickr looking at Anna Maria Horner quilts. I loved the post on sewing, though, it's true - anyone can do it and you gave some great suggestions!

  17. I love seeing the progression of your quilt making - from stash to finish, since I am embarking on my first ever quilt, it is very inspiring. I also love seeing what you are busy creating with all of these fabrics we both love so much! : )

    Great giveaway Rachel!

  18. Hey Rachel, I loved your blog about getting started with sewing. I wish I had taken this up years ago! I will be teaching my 7 year old how to sew once I get the hang of it myself:)

  20. I really liked your Tufted Tweets/Christmas stocking post. I get caught up on Christmas fabrics for Christmas decorations, but you reminded me that that's not totally necessary. I like the fabric combinations you put together!

  23. I love her stuff! I actually get to visit her store and meet her in a couple of weeks!! Eeek! So don't enter me in the giveaway! I loved your Good Folks pillow post. I meant to ask, but didn't: Is the tree an original pattern? Love it!

  24. i love all the vivid colors you use in your quilts- just always very happy! :)

  25. Your site is one of my favorites! I love seeing your works in progress as well as the finished pieces. I haven't seen this book yet, but looks like there are several fun projects. Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. I'm really enjoying your posts about the progress of the fairytale quilt you're making for your daughter. It's turning out beautifully (love the handstitching!), but it's also good for others to see that hiccups do come up and we just have to work around those to make our sewing projects work. I also can relate to the comments you made in your red/aqua post about your hubby caring about your home decor so you can't just decorate however you wish. My hubby won't even consider letting me make a quilt to replace our old bedspread (don't even think about a pillow or home goods swap, he might not approve, lol!); funny how they can be :). Thanks for a great giveaway!
