decisions...decisions....Giveaway!

Update: #88 Barb!!
Thanks you mama's AND Papa! :)
Barb let Corrie know which pattern you would like.
We're loving Yellowstone. Wish you were!
Today's winner will have to decide between two new patterns from Yoyomama.
Yoyomama, aka Marlene Miller, is introducing:
The Fort Street Market Bag -- perfect for beach, workout, library, school & baby.

and.....drumroll please.....


the Vintage Circle Quilt, a follow-up to the very popular - Vintage Baby Quilt.




Same technique, a raw/soft edge applique. You sew all of the layers at one time, thus when you're done sewing, the quilt is machine quilted and just needs to be bound. Love that.







The pattern includes directions for a 40" by 40" or an 80" by 80".



This is a great 5" charm square pattern.

She also has 4" and 5" templates, to make the cutting go faster & easier!





Leave a comment about what kind of mama you are.


Tonight I'm dutchovenmama. Tasty.

Random drawing later tonight. Good luck!

  7. I'm a mama mak long - the eldest aunty for my nephew & nieces. I am their mama when their parents are not around. The eldest two will get my permission before doing anything even though their parents are in the same room with me. I always say NO about buying toys/goodies/etc but they love me to pieces.

  9. Well, I think that I could quite easily be a 'Hot Chocolate in the Snow Grandmama'(not that we've had any snow yet this year) but I like the sound of that. I also like the sound of that beautiful vintage circle pattern, I think even I could machine quilt that!!

I'm not a mom, but right now I'm a math mama--my friend is an event coordinator who is planning a gambling party, and I got stuck working at the craps table! :P It is very complicated and I am very nervous. I will be happy once Saturday night is over and I never have to see a craps table again!
    Love both the patterns, but I've never done raw edge applique before so would love to try the quilt. Thanks for the chance!

  19. My kids are grown up and now I have 9 wonderful grandkids. I was known as Nazi Mom when my kids were younger but being strict gave them a good foundation when they went out into the world.

    I love the quilt pattern, looks like it would be a great stash buster.

    I would choose the bag pattern, for a different project.

  39. Right now I'm a one-tough mama--with a soon-to-be 16 year old testing his wings and testing me! It' that point in the summer when they're getting a little bored and resisting "the routine." Time like this I just wanna be by myself & sew.
