Sew Kind of Wonderful Bloghop and Giveaway.

Me and Jenny 
So, it is my turn for the Sew Kind of Wonderful Bloghop.  I have to say I love Jenny and her sisters so much!  I have had the best time getting to know Jenny over the years. We met through my blog and have been able to meet up at Market a couple of times.  She is the best!  Super talented too. I have to admit, I want to make every pattern she has come up with - if only there were more hours in the day.  

MM1 
Since the first time I laid my eyes on Metro Medallion - I wanted to make it.  Seriously.  I love this pattern so much. Because of time, or lack of time I might say - I made a four block wall-hanging sized quilt. I wanted to have a quilt I could put on the wall and show off my quilting along with showcasing the Medallion block.  This quilt was really fast to put together.  The pattern is easy to follow and I whipped this up in two days, it would have been one day if I didn't have so many distractions ;-) Speaking of distractions - don't you think my little helper is cute?  Love this boy.  He was so excited to help me with my "yiddo kilt" as he calls it.  
 
MM2 
This was the first time I really just grabbed random fabric from my shelves and put together very different colors than my usual bright color palette. I really love the light teal, grey, yellow and navy. I think the colors really work well together. 

MM3 
Jenny loves curves and I love the designs she comes up with, but I have to admit that I love quilting straight lines.  I thought it was totally appropriate to mix our styles together.

MM4 
One thing to remember is to not be scared if you are trying out curved piecing for the first time. I remember being totally intimidated by curves, but with Jenny's ruler and instructions - it's so much easier than I expected. 

MM5 
Two different designs within the yellow fabric, I love how it turned out. 

MM6 
I used two layers of cotton/wool batting and Glide thread for this small quilt.  I love this quilt so much!  The texture is just amazing.

MM7 
This was a really fun project.  I really enjoyed it and I am so excited to that I get to keep it! Isn't the back lovely?  My favorite backing yet.

Pattern and kit 
Here's comes the best part of this giveaway - Jenny is giving away this pattern with kit to make Urban Birthday. These fabrics will be so beautiful! 

QCR 
She is also giving away a Quick Curve Ruler to a lucky reader. Here's all you have to do - go here and look at all of Sew Kind of Wonderful's patterns and book, then tell me which one is your favorite.  Just one entry please.  I'll announce the winner in a couple days - or so..

Check out the rest of the Bloghop this week at the following blogs:


Wednesday August 27th - http://www.pleasant-home.com/

Thursday August 28th - http://lucymade.wordpress.com/
 Friday August 29th - http://www.dontcallmebetsy.com/

And for one last thing - join the Sew Kind of Wonderful QAL!

It will be all sorts of fun!

Anonymous said...

Metro Twist is my favorite and the ruler would make it much easier to make.

SewCalGal said...

I love curves, but will admit I'm not always comfortable with them. Plus, I'm a big advocate of rulers and tools. I'd definitely like to create with this ruler. She has many beautiful patterns, but Metro Lattice is speaking to me.

Jennie said...

Love the Metro Scope, but I've got a long list of loves when it comes to their patterns!

I love Metro Hoops. It looks so complicated but I know it isn't. I would love that negative space in the center of those hoops to play in.

Homemother said...

I like the tic tac deco!

Becky (My Fabric Obsession) said...

My favorite is Metro Twist!

Naomi said...

I love that metro hoops pattern!

Ella and Nesta said...

Metro lattice looks really nice. It's difficult to choose!

Shari said...

I love the Metro Rings. It is my first attempt at sewing curves and much easier than I anticipated. The online tutorials were very helpful for this visual learner

Dora, the Quilter said...

I love them all--don't have a favorite--so I can choose at random or say Metro Rings and then realize I like several others just as well. I would love to have her template and a pattern (have been thinking about them for months) and may celebrate the next little milestone in my life by getting them!

JulieD said...

Metro Waves

Lyn said...

Love your quilt! I went over to look at the patterns and on reading their blog as well I also saw the quilt you made from the Metro Rings pattern...simply gorgeous.. that would be my favourite pattern..as I have always loved the double wedding ring design.

Gammie said...

Love your blog. I am just getting into modern style quilts and love the look at Sew Kind of Wonderful.

ANA said...

Hi,
I love Urban nine patch
Thanks
Ana

nicolesender said...

I like the Urban Nine Patch ~ Pattern #109.

Dondi Murdock said...

OK. I'll try this. I sewed clothes for decades. I sewed in sleeves. Curves in quilts can't be harder than that. I made my own wedding dress. Why have I been acting like such a wimp? Oh, duh! Gotta get this ruler, one way or the other. All those blog hops have convinced me! Now learning to quilt like you is quite a different matter...

Nelly Kelly said...

I love your quilt-and your special helper is pretty quilt, too! Your quilting is so incredible, girl... Really amazing, always! Thanks for the free inspiration, and the opportunity to win! Now that I've seen yours, I'd like to make a Medallion!

Bri said...

I love Urban Abacus! A friend made it, and it is gorgeous....love those fabrics too.

Kathy E. said...

My current fave is the Metro Twist pattern...would love to win a curved ruler!

Krista English said...

Deco Shimmer and Metro Rings are awesome!
