Sewing Back-To-School at Sew Sweetness and Garden Paths Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed...
Tomorrow I am guest-blogging at Sew Sweetness, which is hosted by Sara in Chicago.  She has lined up 30 days of fun sewing articles this month.  I'll be talking about buttons and buttonholes - specifically how to use them on the back of pillows.

I "met" Sara this spring.  After noticing that she faithfully commented on many of my blog posts I emailed her asking if she might want to test a pattern for my line.  (Yes, be careful faithful commenters!)  That pattern was Garden Paths, my best seller, so I thought that it was only fitting that I host a Garden Paths giveaway with this post. Not only am I giving away the pattern but I have one Veranda roll-up that I've saved for just this purpose. 



To enter you must be a follower of this blog and leave a comment on this post telling me a big lie about yourself.  (I must give credit to this giveaway idea to the very funny ladies of at Me and My Sister Designs.  They did this a few months ago and I thought it was absolutely brilliant.)  Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you should you win.

I'll start:
At a statuesque 5'10", I am a very relaxed person with absolutely no tendency towards obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Winner will be chosen using the Random Number Generator on Saturday

Make sure to hop on over to Sew Sweetness and say "hi" to Sara because she is having a giveaway on my entire pattern line - one more chance to win something fun!

Happy sewing!
Amanda

We could be twins!

I'm a calm and relaxed person who only works on one project at a time.

Melinda said...

Okay, so I'll be number 1! I am quite the efficient person, extremely organized and always on time for every event. I am a fiend for fashion and am only dressed in clothing by the designer of the moment!

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

Oh how fun!~ that's the truth! :-)

I don't want to win~ big fat lie! :-)
And gosh, we could be related~ I'm 5'10'' and a swimsuit model.

Thank you for the fun!

Kathleen said...

I am a total clean freak with a daily schedule so every room in my house gets cleaned weekly. Windows, refrigerator, oven, the works! Oh, and I iron the sheets! :)

Deborah in Atlanta said...

I always know what I'm doing when I'm making a quilt. I'm very decisive when I select my pattern and fabrics, and never second-guess myself. I hate shopping for fabric and get in and out of the shop as fast as I can.

Chris said...

I am the most organized person you ever met and finish every single project in a timely fashion before starting another. Quick! Cover my grandchildrens' eyes!!!

mblittle5 said...

OOOO, yummy fabrics and I love your pattern. I don't have one single unfinished quilting project in my sewing room. Actually, that really isn't a lie, I don't have ONE, I have many, LOL. Okay, I'll try again. I can't stand spending time in my sewing room. I'd rather do anything else - laundry, cooking, cleaning - anything but sewing!

Ella said...

.I'm so comfy with my body that I do burlesque as Mimi Man-toya!
Ok...I even made myself giggle. That was a whopper.

Sallie said...

I speak 7 languages fluently and have a degree in rocket science.

I absolutey love my job because it keeps me out of the sewing room and away from all those fabrics and patterns that just make me unhappy!

cakegirl said...

I am young.

Jessica said...

Debra said...

I always eat healthy and hate anything chocolate!

rilojane said...

I LOVE being the center of attention. When my birthday rolls around, I want it to be all about me Me ME! My favorite pass-time is chatting on the phone with my mother-in-law. All her super drama stories about her and her friends are SO interesting. If I had a day where I could do anything I wanted without any responsibilities, I'd just exercise all day long. I follow nothing but workout and diet blogs. How I am a follower of this sewing blog I totally don't know.
Oh, and N'Sync is the best band of all time.

Barb said...

I never procrastinate! I always complete work first and then make time to quilt, or read, or ..... I exercise daily and can still fit into my wedding dress--33 years later!

Oh, this is so much fun (really)!

Peggy said...

I am a follower of your blog...truth.

I am not slightly OCD or a HUGE fabric collector. I always finish a project before I start another. I have no UFOs!

I'd love to win...and that's the truth!

cheryl said...

I am a lovely y9ung lady that loves to clean everyday and cooks gourmet meals for my husband for every meal. Getting into the sewinf room is hard since I really don't enjoy it much. That's a huge wopper.

Wendy said...

I am a loyal reading of your blog - I subscribe via Google Reader

Okay, here is my big lie:

I am incredibly neat, hate to read and despise quilting :)

follower!

KOcanQuilt said...

I am a young, but very experienced quilter. My family has had several generations of quilters in a row. My daughter is getting started at 13.

Mom2RyandSis said...

I love housework and I’d much rather scrub the floor than make a quilt!

I'm a follower. Thanks for the giveaway! :)

Jennyroo said...

I drive my husband crazy because I am always picking up my things and tidying and organizing them. He also says I should buy more fabric because I don't have enough.

Life In A Pink Bunny Suit said...

I absolutely detest chocolate and fabric!

Quilter in the Gap said...

Not only is my house completely immaculate but all of my quilting projects get cleaned. I have no idea what a UFO is if its not a Flying Sauser! Oh and my husband picks up after himself all the time...and even taught my 16 yo to clean her room!

robin said...

I gag on chocolate. ;)

Ruth said...

I'm the neatest woman and the best housekeeper in the world, and I like like a rug, too.

Staci said...

I'm a total slob who can't cook a thing without burning it. I'm my mother in law's favorite daughter in law. I adore snakes and all kinds of reptiles. When I quilt, I hate every second of it and always completely finish one project before starting another. And most important of all, I never, ever over spend my fabric budget!

; D

AlyceB said...

I'm a patient sewer who only works on one thing at a time and only buys the fabric that I need for each project.

I hate coffee :)

Thanks for the giveaway

pcflamingo said...

I'm a follower (really) (no fooling). My sewing room is neat as a pin and I never have to pick up piles of fabric from the floor and stack them on the cutting table so my cleaning lady can vacuum. I always follow the Blue Bird motto that I learned as a little girl "I will learn to finish what I begin." Always.

supersara20 said...

I am not at all overwhelmed with all the projects I must finish before Christmas!

Best game for a room full of strangers at a party: Two Truths and a Lie (then the strangers have to guess the lie)

truth: I follow your blog
truth: I had my baby by myself in a bathtub after the hospital sent me home and my hubby was working grave yards.
lie: I have such a neat sewing room and it beautifully shows off my Barbie Doll collection. (I rival Teresa* when it comes to an organized sewing room.

I'm a doctor of fabricology who's currently working on the cure for quilting thumb and concurrently, embroidery eyestrain. In my spare time, I volunteer for Fabric for Humanity, which provides new material for families who are down on their fabric luck and need a boost to get back on track with their sewing.

Kathy MacKie said...

I never quilt in my jammies!!!

Tammy said...

Thank you for the giveaway.

I'm a quilt designer and blogger. I began about 20 years ago and today I travel the world from the far reaches of Greenland to the South Pole sharing my designs and wonderful fabric with people around the globe!

Kate said...

I love it when my dogs eats all his food, burps in my face, drools foody drool on me, and farts every ten minutes. I also wish that he would poop on the floor more.

Pam said...

My home is immaculately clean. I learned how to quilt so fast that after a two months I am an expert. My seams always match perfectly and I don't need a seam ripper so I threw it away
I follow this blog..truth.

Pat V. said...

My house is neat as a pin and dust free; no fabric scraps or threads on the floor! I cook gourmet meals nightly and never complain about my husband.

Martina said...

I am a very patient person and never tempted to buy fabrics I don't really need!

Pamela Nees said...

I hate summer, swimming and sunshine!

Oh, and I hate sewing! (Do you love the alliteration?)

Betty said...

You want me to tell you something about me?
You've not heard of me?
I'm so famous!!
I am a confident machine quilter and always know what to do best in every situation of life.
I always finish what I'm doing before I start a new project.
I am very organised: my desk is always clean and empty.
I dislike every fabric you've designed so far.
And the last detail I'll give you is that I live in the USA.
(and I never lie!)

Leah said...

I am wishing school didn't begin in a week... Its too soon, and I'd love the kids to stay home living our totally unstructured life we've had this month.

(BTW, remind me in a month, that I really wanted the routine to start!)

Sunnybec said...

I really don't want to win this, I don't like Vernanda at all!! OMG my heart is beating so fast after saying that...LOL. I follow you. Linda xx

Cille said...

I'm a great cook! My friends never forget a meal that I have prepared (the last is not a lie actually but it's for the opposite reasons that one might think. I think everybody still remember the red curry I tried about 10 years ago).
I follow you... naturellement :)And thanks for the opportunity to win. I really like the bright, happy fabric and already had the pattern bookmarked.

AngieSue said...

Although I'm throwing my hat in the ring for this fabric giveaway, I actually have a wonderful eye for color and do not need to rely on pre-coordinated fabric lines to make a decent quilt. For instance, the pink, blue, and purple batiks I picked out for my last quilt DID NOT end up looking like a giant bruise.

Emma said...

I can't understand why quilters would cut up perfectly good fabric, only to sew it back together again!

Mystica said...

Fabulous comments here! I quilt not because I love to but because so many people beg me to do so.

Jo said...

First of all I just hate your fabric and patterns, however I also live in a spotless house and would never think of eating a pint of ice cream a day. I guess that is why I wear a size 2 and am able to dress to the 9's every day, pj's and sweat pants are things I would never stay in for more that 10 mins after I get out of bed.

gill said...

I hate sewing and consequently never buy any fabric!
Coincidentally I am also 5' 10" !!

Gemma said...

I am a quiet person who hates speaking in front of others and would rather eat an apple than a piece of cake.

SoozeM said...

Hahaha I am a blonde bimbo model and I never ever hide from my kids so I can sew and quilt in peace!

MooseStash Quilting said...

Too funny!! I love the garden path pattern. What a design, and you have to love those jelly rolls! For me, I am super model material. NOT FABRIC MATERIAL With the patience of a saint! :-) Let me adjust my halo here...

MaddyMaze Studio said...

I am a follower and I absolutely do not have 4 bins of fat quarters in color order in my garage!

Missy said...

Hey! Thanks for the giveaway! Just FYI, I would NEVER skip church to sew up a quilt that is needed the next week. :-) Oh and I did NOT do that this weekend.

Karen said...

My house is always neat and clean, everything in its place, the family well fed with delicious and healthy food! Nothing suffers as a result of my desire to create, and I do not suffer from a compulsion to acquire fabric and tools to express my creativity!

Ann said...

I just got back from my daily 8 mile run and saw your post. I had to comment before I whipped up a hot breakfast for my family, fed and groomed the dog, and packed our lunches for work. I love your fabrics! (at least that last part is true!)

Lisa Marie said...

I don't know what women see in George Clooney.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Well I am a quilter who just can't understand the people who say they like to 'pet' or 'fondle' fabric. You will NEVER catch me laying out fabric and fondling it, or walking through a quilt shop and running my hands over the fabric as I admire it. Hugz and blessings...

(Oh my goodness, that was really painful, LOL)

Marjorie said...

I have a large, sunny studio with a giant design wall, where my sewing projects are carefully organized, and nothing is ever "out of place".

Mimi said...

My house is absolutely dust-free, spotless and completely organized. I would prefer to go to work, or work around the house cooking, cleaning, doing yard work than wasting time around a silly sewing studio cutting up fabric and sewing it back together!

Karen said...

I ALWAYS finish one project before I start on the next. I never buy fabric until I need it. I always remember where every piece of fabric is stored!

Robin said...

I don't care if my seams don't line up perfectly. I just keep on sewing. My seam ripper barely gets any attention.

girleen said...

hello! i really love that pattern and i would be so excited to get my hands on the fabric! i think one of my biggest lies (which are many), is that i am well-organized. i am pulled in too many directions to be perfect in any one thing. thanks for the chance!

Lisnaweary Quilts said...

I am a follower and I have absolutely no fabric - zilch - zero, my drawers are empty, cupboards, attic, under the bed, wardrobe all echo with the emptiness. It truly is a tragedy.

Jeanne said...

I absolutely do not like to sew or quilt. Fabric is a work of the devil and will never darken my home. I sleep under fuzzy and dusty blankets!! The last thing in the world I want is a pattern and jelly roll.

sweetteagrits said...

I complete every project I start.

Jeanne said...

I am a follower of your blog (that is the truth) LOL That was hard for me to lie, it is something I just hate.

Oh the joy of telling little white lies ... so refreshing and freeing. I never expect people to keep their promises or to tell the truth...my life has been a wonderful whirlwind of everything falling into place. I have no regrets (willing to speak of).

Laura said...

4 words "I need more fabric"!!!!

Skittl1321 said...

Hi! I'm a follower (I think I follow you through blogger, but you are definetly on my google reader!) <-- truth

I am an absolute perfectionist in my quilting, no mistake goes uncorrected :)

Caren said...

One lie? OK, I'm game to try:
I am a mommy to 31 perfect children, all twins!!!

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

A lie huh??? How about, I just love being pregnant :)

pinsandneedles said...

I am the most organized person around. Everything is in its place and put away immediately after use. No wasted time searching for things here...

Mellisa said...

Like many others above, I am able to focus all my attention on one task at a time without EVER procrastinating. I'm also fantastic at math :)

Susan said...

I am a follower of your blog and I just love Veranda and Garden Paths (this one IS true). I was born in Chicago but have lived most of my life in the south and I just love hot humid weather and Oh yes, okra.

Michele said...

I so love this fabric line and the pattern. I think it is a must addition to my collection.

About me???? I am an only child who does not play well with others and does not like to do crafty things at all.

Diane said...

Not a lie - I love reading your blog!

hmmm... how about ... I have no projects to work on ... ha!

Snoodles said...

Oh, Veranda is a line of fabric that I just dislike intensely, and I have never ever drooled over the Garden Paths pattern, with my mouse poised to click! Also, I am yet another member of this quilting community that is still slender and can fit in my clothes from college days.
Giggle! Wow, I'm pretty good at this lying stuff...I'd better be careful!

Nancy said...

I finish a quilt a week,
and then start anew.
I'm a perfect wife,
and mother too.

I don't make mistakes,
I never cut wrong,
my seams always meet,
never too short or long.

I'm the best in the world,
although no one's heard,
and my poem's are awesome,
or so's the word.

So I really don't need this,
don't want to win.
I'm just sending this post,
to add to the din.

Now that you've heard,
some really terrible lies,
please enter me in your giveaway,
for a really terrific prize!

Teresa said...

Amanda, I am a slim person who keeps her house spotless. I hate quilting and the feel of fabric. I hate reading blogs, and that is why I follow so many.

Love the pattern and Veranda!

Lana said...

Truth: I follow your blog and would love to win!

My seam ripper would like to be turned into Protective Services for neglect. I do not have a 'sewing cave' in my basement, nope, no not me. You could never tell this by the lack of fabric and other suspicious supplies.

LJ said...

I have made hundreds of quilts and can find few new patterns I want to make especially because the process has become so simple.

Catskill Quilter said...

Ilove your patterns! Now, the big fib: I am only 22 years old, have made 17 quilts and speak 5 languages.

Sue said...

We won't discuss looks because obviously my figure simply enhances my naturally flowing blond locks. What impresses everyone most, however, is how I can work a high stress full time job, keep the house spic and span, have a hot dinner on the table every night, jog 5 miles, and finish the evening by sewing in an immaculately maintained craft room, all with a cheery disposition and a perpetual smile. (Wow ... I actually put that into words without cracking up!)

Miss Nancy said...

Truth: Great giveaway, great pattern, great fabric!

Lie: My sewing room is ready for a new project! Don't I wish.

Thank you for this great giveaway. Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

Lorri said...

This should be fun! Yes, I am a follower of yours. *truth*

I've completely lost track of how many days till the kids go back to school, and I don't know how I am going to fill my days when they do!

For a very short period of time I have been despising this particular pattern and would consider myself the most unfortunate person on earth to win both it and this fugly fabric.

I know we're not to be truthful, but I can't tell you how it hurt me to write that top bit.

I am also a runner, who never misses an opportunity to get up before work to get all sweaty while running a couple of miles. I also would never think about drinking soda or eating anything unhealthy, especially deserts! oh the horrors!!!


back to the truth......thanks for this fun giveaway!

Jenelle said...

Ok here's a big lie: I never argue, hate sugar, and dislike being creative. Fabric makes me nauseous and I don't enjoy spending time in craft stores. ;)

That was kinda fun! Thanks for the giveaway and for the laugh.

lilsnailquilts said...

I absolutely hate to shop for fabric. The feel of the fabric creeps me out and all the different colors causes me extreme nausea. I hope I never have to quilt another thing for as long as I live.
Don't care if I win or not.
