Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!!

It's that time again! Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day!!

Time for me to shamelessly promote my tiny Etsy shop.


For those of you new here, I make and sell acrylic quilting templates and rulers, check out my shop to see what's available. (I do custom orders too!!) These are the same great quality of the major brands you buy in your LQSs. Mine are laser cut and etched here in my home. Here are some examples of what I have in my shop, and some pics of what I made with them:




I'm offering 1 commenter on this post 1 item from my shop, your choice! I'll happily ship internationally as well. So leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite size/shape ruler/template is, or what you would like to see in my shop in the coming year. My valued followers may have a second entry - just let me know you're a follower (or you can become one).

Good luck today, and have a wonderful holiday season! 

Winner will be chosen on Friday, Dec 16th at 5:00pm PST

  70. I think I'd pick a hexagon template.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I just love the hexagons... maybe adding more edges? Octagons or even more? I could image that this would create interesting patterns!

    Or how about patterns like the pictures from Escher where animals are like puzzle pieces? I am tempted to try something like this but I am so not looking forward to draw and cut them all ^^

    You'll make someone's day with your prize!

    ReplyDelete
  80. The most useful ruler I have is my 12.5" square. I am really liking your drunkard's path ruler too! When I was in architecture school I used laser cutters to make models, but I never thought to slap some plexi down and make a quilting ruler. :) I love your shop!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  102. wow..I'd love to get the drunkard's path template..you know its funny, for the last 2 weeks Ive been searching for quilting rulers on etsy but without much success (I dont live in the U.S. and no craft shop here carries these rulers) Just my luck to have stumbled across your blog and shop!I dont know how it didnt show up in my search results.. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I would want one of the Elizabeth Hartman templates - not sure which one - I would have to look at my book. I am so glad to know they are here. Thanks for a great giveaway and for an introduction to your shop. I have added it to my favorites.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I've never used a template OR a quilter's ruler.. both of which I'd like, especially a Drunkard's path!

    ReplyDelete
  107. The basic, but Large :) 5 inch square would make me very pleased. Have you thought about making longer rulers, or even a triangle set?
    Thanks for teh generous giveaway chance!

    ReplyDelete
  108. I've added you to my blog bar as I want to be sure to see what else you come up with!

    ReplyDelete

  112. Oh, I would love to try the drunkards path!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Ack! It is so hard to choose. I like the Drunkard's Path and Apple Core templates. But I'm nervous about sewing curves! I also like the New Waves template. Thanks for the giveaway! robyn(dot)geddes(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  114. I would love to try some curved piecing, so drunkards path would be a great one for me to try. I only own a straight long ruler!

    ReplyDelete
  115. I'm not into quilting (yet), but I can see how these are super nifty little gadgets. I'm going to give quilting a try next year (eep!) and I think the 5x5 is probably the most useful one for a first timer. I hate cutting circles and can see how that shape might be useful to have as a template.

    Great giveaway - I hope you get a lot of support from this giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  123. I would love Drunkard's path templates. I wanted to do a drunkard path quilt along earlier this year but I was too nervous to free hand it in combination with the curved pieces. So hopefully this would give me the confidence to move forward with it. thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
