Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!!!

It's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!!!  I so look forward to this day!!!  Now I know we just had Terrific Tuesday Giveaway Day Yesterday (for those of you who are visiting for the first time, there is giveaway every Tuesday at Happy Quilting) but  Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day  is tradition!!!  With that said,  I know you have lots of places to visit so lets get right to it :)



I am so super excited for this!!!   And it comes with an announcement.   My brand new book, Irish Chain Quilts was set to release on the 19th but the soft release date was moved up to yesterday and copies of it are making their way to me now!!!!  So I want to share!!!!  Up for grabs is an autographed copy of Irish Chain Quilts: Contemporary Twists on a Classic Design!!!  And since so many of the designs in the book are super pre-cut friendly, I am adding in a Daydream Layer Cake by Kate Spain and 2 Blueprint Basics Charm Squares by Valorie Wells.   That will get you started on 2 quilts from the book!!!  Such Sewing Fun!!!!



So what do you have to do for your chance to win???  Simple . . . We are gonna run this the same way we do all of the Terrific Tuesday Giveaway's.  Which means it is essentially a repeat from yesterday, keeping it simple ;)

You have two entry chances, the second being optional, and please leave a separate comment for each.  All Entries are welcome, including International Entries.  Please just be sure to leave an email address if you are a no-reply blogger ;)  

ENTRY 1 - Simply leave a comment here telling me if you have ever made an Irish Chain Quilt or if it is on your "Quilty Bucket List".

 ENTRY 2 - Show your Happy Quilting love. You can follow Happy Quilting on BloglovinEmail Updates, or RSS to get daily updates.  Or you can like Happy Quilting on InstagramFacebookPinterestTwitter or Flickr  Any one way will do . . . Just be sure to leave a comment of how you showed your Happy Quilting Love!!!

And that's it ;)  The giveaway will be open until Sunday May 10th and  I will randomly select and announce a winner on Monday Morning :)

Oh, and by the Way . . . If you are stopping by for the first time, Welcome!!   I am so glad you visited and hope you will come back often.  I have so much fun sharing my passion for quilting here with lots of  free tutorials, giveaways, fabric eye candy, and of course, general Happy Quilting times!! And be sure to come back tomorrow for Terrific Tuesday Giveaway Day :)

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
