Posy Share and Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway!

Yay for my Posy finish - she is just such a carefree little quilt. I really enjoyed letting loose and playing with the low volume backgrounds and (ohhh ahhh) NOT matching every background square in each block.
Posy Quilt 40 x 52 in.



How about that Lotta Jansdotter for the backing?! It spoke to me from the bolt and I just had to bring it home - I love how it has both the bright and white of the quilt front.





Favourite block.




And now for my Sew,Mama,Sew Giveaway! This is my first time participating in this giveaway and I post this on the morning of the day I am flying across the continent to go on a great adventure. I am meeting 3 friends in New York City and I am super, bursting with excitement. Sooooo, I thought that a really fun thing to giveaway would be some fabric straight from the Big Apple.

Some time ago, Chrissie, of Made by Chrissie D, emailed me a fabulous list of fabric stores in NYC to visit (thanks, Chrissie!!!) and while I perused one of the store websites I found this undeniably amazing fabric....


Fabric photos from The City Quilter website

  16. I've been looking forward to seeing the finished Posy Quilt. It's so lovely and fresh. As for my greatest adventure, my sister and I went to Australia to visit our family (we live in Poland). It was more than 10 years ago and it was the first time we ever travelled by plane - started big, haven't we?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Going to Italy with my extended family a couple summers ago was definitely an adventure. My brother and I pulled older family members off the wrong subway train a few too many times for my comfort. Thanks for hosting!

  24. My trip of all time was going alone to a top notch spa called Miraval in Tucson, Arizona. It was fun and had lots of group activities, both during the day and at night. I remember the hot rock massage and prickly pear creams. Using all my frequent flyer miles was well worth it. We still use my "Life in Balance" tea cup they gave guests. alternate email mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

  25. I went to New York City a few years ago for the first time - it was great! I loved getting up to Long Island to go canoeing and eating a picnic lunch from this great Italian grocery store. This year I'm headed to Chicago, Cleveland (home!), Washington D.C. and Gettysburg for the 150th anniversary of the battle. Quite a road trip!

  31. I have been to Hawaii with my sister, when we were both in our early 20s. We got up in the middle of the night to be toted to the top of a dormant volcano and then bicycle down the mountainside for the rest of the day. I'm ready to try some adventure with my DH.

  43. Your Posy quilt is so pretty! I love that each background is a different fabric.....adds to the colourful 'scrappy' look! Now as to my favourite holiday destination.....spending a lifetime road tripping to various towns, cities, states in Australia has been a delight! But.....I am soooooo jealous that your next holiday destination is The Big Apple. I have always wanted to go there......to visit all those quirky shops, the garment district, perhaps find a treasure or two at the flea markets, drink in all the sights, sounds and bustle of 'the city that never sleeps".......perhaps one day.....if I am a very good girl!!

  51. Wow, reading all these comments make me realise how boring and un-adventurous my life is. My biggest adventure has been hiking around Dove Lake in Tasmania (and I promise it was a well worn track and very level. Officially rated as a beginner trail :-/) lol.

  53. I feel a little weird saying that I have never been on a great adventure. Unless you count motherhood :) I am a homebody and don't transition well. I would like to travel SOMEWHERE when my kids are a little more grown, but we'll see, ha.

    ReplyDelete
  54. My great adventure came when I won a Caribbean cruise, my sister had to back out at last minute so I ended up going alone. Alone on a gorgeous ship and stopping at a few ports and exploring new places. It was great, I made some friends, tried foods that I have never tried before and had experiences that I never had before. I ice-skated and surfed for the first time on a ship in the middle of the ocean.

  64. My biggest travelling adventure has to be my trip to India. The driver on our safari was CRAZY. When he told you to sit down, he meant it! We saw wild tigers and watched the sun rise over the hills, so it was worth the heart racing jeep ride.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Great fabric!! We had a wonderful family vacation in Germany where we travelled all over the country seeing the most amzing things - I would love to take another European vacation someday. Thanks for the chance to win!

  66. As a military family, we've lived in Europe & Asia and travelled all over (London/Paris/Tokyo/Rome/Madrid/Beijing...). But my 11 year old is more excited about our upcoming summer trip to New York City than anywhere else we've ever been. Who knows why??? This fabric would be perfect - and if you have time to share the names of the stores, I would be most grateful. Thanks! Hope the travel was great.

    ReplyDelete
  67. My great adventure would be to go back to Europe and see it on my own, not with a tour group (was with my church choir). We literally jogged through the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa, and missed everything else.

  76. A favorite adventure of mine was going to the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, BC a couple years ago! Took the train to Canada, then took light rail into the city, then other light rail and buses to the various venues (Women's Curling and Women's Hockey, great fun!) and then spent a day walking around town, being part of the GIGANTIC crowds, seeing the Olympic Flame, eating new foods, talking with so many strangers, experiencing Vancouver at its best ... oh I have such memories! And of course I bought a Tim Horton's Olympic special donut. Maple leaf sprinkles! :)

  80. We're going to wait a couple of years until everyone is well and truly potty trained, then we're going to rent an RV and drive from Toronto to PEI. I want my girls to see the ocean. :)

  81. When I was a little kid I used to dream about going camping all over the country by myself, but I thought it would be too scary and I would never really be able to do it... then I got older, and braver, and I traveled the country by myself! I camped in Big Sur and up and down the west coast and I stayed with family and friends all over the country. It was the best adventure, crammed into just 3 months, ever!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Yes, I want a grand adventure! Does that count as an entry? ;) No big travel escapes recently, but I always love visiting new places and exploring. Hope you have lots of fun.

    Thanks for the chance to win - I LOVE this fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I have to say, a trip to New York was one of my favourite adventures! Regular trips to Banff, Jasper and then on To Vancouver and Vancouver Island are all wonderful adventure trips, too. Since we live in that area, they're the usual adventures for us but if I lived far from here, I would have it high on my list of things to do.

    ReplyDelete

Thanks so much for the shout out, I hope you're enjoying every minute of your time here in the city and that you've still left some fabric in The City Quilter for me! You know I'm a follower, I think your blog and quilting are fab but please don't add me to the giveaway, I'd feel a bit silly if I went and won it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  101. My greatest adventure - 16 women on motorbikes, raising money for a breast cancer charity riding the length of Britain, majority of whom had had breast cancer - we took 10 days and made the most of it - we visited loads of touristy places and made some great friends, some of whom have since passed, but not one will ever be forgotten - an adventure is definiately something that stays in your heart for ever. And to boot - we raised £26,000 for other young women with the horrible, nasty, selfish disease.

    My other two best adventures were spent in Alberta, seeing bears, horse riding, hiking - with some great friends.

    Hope you have a fab time on your adventure, soak up everthing :o)

  155. My favorite adventure was taking my 2 youngest kids (14 & 10 at the time) to Paris for a week, so show them the city I love the best.

    My next adventure will be to go judge a fiber goat show (animals and fiber) next month. Super excited.

  162. When I was 18, I went to Vegas with a friend and her car broke down on the way home (24 hour drive back to WA state), in the middle of the Nevada desert. Some very nice silver miners gave us a lift to the next town to catch a bus home.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  163. Before becoming a classroom teacher, I was a professional tall ship sailor and we had quite a few adventures due to weather, length of trip, or crazy crew mates. In Honduras, a local fisherman came to the boat to say hello. The captain invited him on board and as he was taking a tour the fisherman told us that every day as a boy he used to climb up the hill with his Grandfather to see if the boat was in town. When he found out that the boat was being sold and may not be back, he was agitated and said he had to leave. We thought he was upset, but he returned a short time later with a boatload of red snapper and insisted on cooking dinner for the crew to thank the boat for the memories he had. It was an amazing thing. (And the snapper was delicious!)
