Giveaway at Sew We Quilt!

I'm sure some of you have heard about the fantastic giveaway going on every day at Sew We Quilt.  Madame Samm has graciously hosted a giveaway every day of the week for THREE WHOLE MONTHS for both Want To Be Quilters (on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) and Quilters (on Tuesday and Thursday). 

Today I am guest blogging over at Sew We Quilt showing how to make this...




A lampshade covered with fabric!  No sewing this time, but we all love to accessorize.

The folks at Robert Kaufman have donated 1/2 yard cuts of Veranda for the giveaway so make sure you hop on over today and enter!  There are 2 bundles of 6 yard totals to win!  And Madame Samm has thrown a Colonial basket full of different goodies AND Famore Applique scissors too!  I know...  Just become a follower and leave a comment here and also at Madame Samm's fabulous blog and you will be set to enter.  (If you beat me to it and left a comment on the previous post that is okay - I'm internet-challenged this week and apologize for my lateness.)  And don't forget to check in at Sew We Quilt each day for the next 3 months for more giveaways!

Note:  If you have trouble seeing my follower button on my sidebar try refreshing the screen a couple of times.
Thanks Madame Samm!
Amanda

Woohoo for you, Amanda! Great tutorial on Madame Samm's blog.

Thanks for all you do.

i've followed you on google connect, as requested, but i've also signed up for the feedburner e-mails, which is how i'll ACTUALLY follow you! (my google connect is way too overwhelming!)

This is a great idea! Thanks for sharing this tutorial. Do you think it would work to cover a patterned lamp shade or would the pattern show when the light is on? I'm not a quilter yet, but I really want to be! :) This type of project is perfect for me.

I tried to leave a comment here this morning when I posted under your tutorial, but it took me to an old post. I hope I didn't disqualify myself. I've been following you for a while now and have tried to win your Veranda fabric at several blogs.
Many thanks.

Hi Amanda,

Have been a follower for a while-love your fabrics, esp. Veranda.

Thanks for the lampshade tutorial...I've been trying to figure out what to do with two elderly, sad-looking shades :).

Now if I can just remember to check in at Sew We Quilt on Tues and Thurs!

 
At August 18, 2011 at 12:31 PM , Blogger GG said...

Thanks for the tutorial. I always wanted to know how to do this b/c so many of my shades have rips & stains. So this is greatly appreciated.
I am a follower. I will need to visit Madame Samm blog, too.

Giveaway at Sew We Quilt!

28
I'm sure some of you have heard about the fantastic giveaway going on every day at Sew We Quilt.  Madame Samm has graciously hosted a giveaway every day of the week for THREE WHOLE MONTHS for both Want To Be Quilters (on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) and Quilters (on Tuesday and Thursday). 

Today I am guest blogging over at Sew We Quilt showing how to make this...




A lampshade covered with fabric!  No sewing this time, but we all love to accessorize.

The folks at Robert Kaufman have donated 1/2 yard cuts of Veranda for the giveaway so make sure you hop on over today and enter!  There are 2 bundles of 6 yard totals to win!  And Madame Samm has thrown a Colonial basket full of different goodies AND Famore Applique scissors too!  I know...  Just become a follower and leave a comment here and also at Madame Samm's fabulous blog and you will be set to enter.  (If you beat me to it and left a comment on the previous post that is okay - I'm internet-challenged this week and apologize for my lateness.)  And don't forget to check in at Sew We Quilt each day for the next 3 months for more giveaways!

Note:  If you have trouble seeing my follower button on my sidebar try refreshing the screen a couple of times.
Thanks Madame Samm!
Amanda
