Giveaway: Eye-Spy Quilt Kit {closed}

***This giveaway has closed.  The random number generator chose Michelle, who says her next project is making summer clothes for her kids!  Congratulations!  Thanks to everyone else who entered!***

I'm linking up with the Sew Mama Sew May giveaway!  After you enter for my giveaway, head over there to see hundreds more!


I have a number of pregnant friends at the moment, some due within the month!  My gift of choice for a new baby is an Eye-Spy Quilt.  Check back in the coming months to see the new ones!


Not only are these fun and cute, but they're interactive!  Newborns love to gaze at the bright shapes, but older babies can listen to stories about the pictures or learn counting, colors, and animals from all the different blocks!


I'm giving away an eye-spy quilt kit, valued at $55.

This kit includes templates, directions, and enough hexagons to make a crib size (36x54) eye spy baby quilt. You’ll get over 100 pre-cut hexagons from all unique fabrics - enough to piece the quilt, plus a few extras just in case. Fabric for borders and triangles is not included, but that’s where you get to personalize!


You can specify boy, girl, or gender neutral. You can also request fabrics like dogs, cats, sports, etc.

This kit allows you to make a beautiful, fun, and educational keepsake - without having to buy and cut 100 fabrics of your own! Families I've given these to use them for learning colors, counting, and animals, eye-spy, and telling stories. They also make a great surface to play on, and are machine washable. Use the included templates to add to your stash.

If you don't win, but would still like a kit, check out my Etsy shop.



To enter, leave a comment below telling me about your next project.  This isn't just a sewing blog, but a projects blog, so this could include anything from a recipe to home improvement to sewing a prom dress!  International entrants are welcome!  This contest closes st midnight ESTon Friday May 10, 2013.

Earn extra entries by following me on Pinterest or following my blog.  Head to my Pinterest page to follow, then leave a comment letting me know your username.  If you follow my blog, leave a comment letting me know what method you use to follow!
