10 Year Celebratory Giveaway – December

Posted on: December 5th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Thank you ALL!!!

We are having another GIVEAWAY!!!

It’s time to celebrate YOU!

I began this little blog back in 2012, keeping a diary of my quilting journey, while searching to connect with the online quilting community. That lovely group of online supporters and encouragers that I have been blessed to come to know, are people just like you. And I wouldn’t have made it this far without each and every one of YOU!

Thank you all for following along.

Today, I am also sharing 3 NEW Christmas patterns I have been working on.

Christmas Nativity finished size is 32″ x 33″.

Christmas Polar Bear 12″ quilt block (shown with Poinsettia from the Jolly Christmas Collection)

Christmas Angel 12″ quilt block (shown with Candles from the Jolly Christmas Collection)

All 3 of these NEW patterns are now available in my Etsy Shop here!

A great big thank you to all those who participated in last month’s Novembrrr Giveaway. The winners have all been notified.

Here is another chance to WIN!

The prizes for the Decembrr Giveaway are these three quilted table runners…

And 5 Paper Patterns….

PLUS!!! There will be 1 prize of $100 Gift Card from Fat Quarter Shop!

This Decembrrr GIVEAWAY is open to everyone who leaves a comment on my Instagram postFacebook post or here on this blog post.

This month’s draw will take place December 13th.

Let’s celebrate 10 years of Sew Fresh Quilts!
