Giveaway Day!



In honor of the 4th of July coming up --
We are seeing red!
Sew Red

 Let's all skip around the room.  
I would reenact this photo for you, 
if I had a stark white room. :)
That's Denyse Schmidt's pattern.

Okay, I should not have opened the book, 
because now I'm wanting to keep it.


I've never wanted a heart quilt,
until now. 
How cute is that, with the grey and
Tula Pink's cool fabric (Frog Prince).
Wish I still had some of that right now.



Here are projects by Aneela Hoey 
and Sweetwater.
Sweet.


Stripey little purse by Patty Young.

Big names in this book, Amy Butler, Anna Maria, 
Kaffe, Kaari Meng, Anna Griffin, and more.
They are sewing and quilting for women's heart health.  
It's an appeal to women to take charge
and prevent heart disease.
Let's do it!  

[Gene, you do it too.]

  The giveaway today is Sew Red 
along with some red fabric!

 

To enter the giveaway, 
leave a comment about yes, something red 
or

so the winner will be picked on July 5th.

Only enter once.

  3. The 4th is always celebrated with a bbq and then some wonderful fireworks...always filled with family and friends. We get to watch them go off on a barge and it is beautiful over the water. And red well it is just one of my favorite colors along with yellow and pink. Have a great celebration with friends and family...we all need to celebrate our freedom day!

  6. Recently bought a huge, awesome red curtain with black dots in the as/is section of Ikea, would love some ideas to turn it into something awesome, though one thing's set, I need a circle skirt of it, hehe.

    Being European, the 4th is kinda like a normal day for me?

    For summer I don't really have planned anything, we'll see what summer will bring us, of course apart from a little (rather bouncy!) baby in 8 weeks. :)

The sales associate laughed at me because I had written that I needed them in "swanky red" on my paper. They make me happy every time I have to do laundry. (And with a 10.5 month old, that's a lot!)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love red, its a great color, but I take it in small doses or I find it overwhelming.

  152. I adore red. My upcoming baby is even going to me named Ruby. I worry that she'll grow up to hate it because of all the red things that are going to happen to her but I just love it. What a fabulous book!

  155. I love red. It's such a great accent color that goes with so much. I recently bought a red Swingline stapler ala Office Space.

  156. Growing up I hated red. Man was I wrong ... now that I'm older, much older RED is my FAVORITE. In fact, our family room is painted Cherry Red .... so yummy.

  157. Red has always been my favorite color as evidenced by my clothing, decorating, what I buy the grandkids and of course, my red '94 Camaro Z-28 convertible. Love that car! Thanks for the super giveaway.

  158. Red Sparkle Cake for the family ... yum! This is a wonderful giveaway, thank you.
    I think that red enhances every room - maybe a lot or just a touch. I like red bindings on quilts. You can get some of that Prince Charming still at equilter.com.
    Happy 4th!

  161. Love the book! I plan on spending a lazy day at home barbecuing with my family, may try out that cool drink too :)

  162. A bit of red fabric in a mostly neutral quilt will add lots of life to it. Red is a good "underpainting" color for a landscape. Tiny bits left showing through really make it pop.

    I hope you have a lovely 4th of July!

    (I am doing my best to on the heart disease front too....hehehe thanks for the mention.)

  167. A couple of years ago I was replacing the sectional in our family room. Now, I'm partial to blue and brown and thought I would go with those colors but the decorator strongly suggested red. We followed her suggestion and could not be happier. It's more of a cranberry red but so fabulous.

  168. I love red...my dream couch is red...stylish for me very comfy for my husband. Yet small enough to fit into our quite small loft of sorts. My first quilt was red and pink! Happy 4th to everyone. Blessings, d

  173. I have a lot of red fabric, white and blue too. Maybe a red book is just what I need! Watched the fireworks overlooking the arroyo at the Rose Bowl.
    Thanks for the chance!

  175. This book looks like so much fun. I had a favorite red (with white pin dots) when I was in high school. I have never forgotten that dress and wish now I'd kept it - just to look at!!
