"Sew Your Own" and 5 Giveaways!

EDIT: This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your entry. Winners will be announced Tuesday 8/5/14.



Recently I was in Chattanooga at Spool to attend a lecture being presented by Alex Veronelli for Aurifil thread company and I came across this adorable fabric panel:

Cute right?  I knew immediately that I had to have it and exactly what I wanted to make with a couple of the panel blocks.
So I dug out my scraps from a Kimberley's Garden 1930's jelly roll that I purchased from the Fat Quarter Shop and went to work.

I sewed strips together and then subcut them into 2 1/2" strips and then sewed them into a large panel.

 I then decided on the backing fabric and cut out the "Sew Your Own" panel and attached strips on both sides until I had it as wide as my biggest sewing machine. I have several machines and some vintage ones that do not have a cover. I decided to make a cover big enough that I could use on whichever machine that was currently in use.

 I think it turned out so stinkin' cute! I sewed three strips across the top and a panel of the 2 1/2" squares for the back. I bound it scrappy with leftover strips.


I used the twill tape from a fat quarter bundle for the ties on the sides. I love that the cover is adjustable for any of my machines.


I used Aurifil thread 12wt for quilting it! 12wt In My Machine! I set my stitch length to 5, the longest that my machine offers.  I love, love how it looks!


The thread color is # 4668! And its variegated!  I usually machine stitch my bindings on the front and hand stitch to the backing, however this time I wanted to play with this gorgeous thread some more so I stitched the binding to the back and then flipped it to the front and machine stitch it with the 12 wt thread!  I love the vintage, chunky look that it gives.


I used 50 wt in the bobbin. It worked fine. I think a 40wt would work great too!  And a cutsey little floral print for the backing. 


I decided that I wanted to try out my Aurifloss and have started using it on the panel. I should have done this first, but you know me, if I can get the cart before the horse, I do it everytime! :) But I have been able to embroider through the panel but not all the way through the batting and backing. So far...
   Look at those yummy colors. Aurifloss is a six strand 100% long staple cotton floss. Great for embroidery, Sashiko and blanket stitch applique. Just about anytime you want a chunky embroidered look. And,  it can be seperated like any other 6 strand floss.And it comes on these adorable wooden spools! LOVE!
 I also want to do some embellishing with buttons and ribbon. 

When it is not in use, I can open it up and throw it over the back of my chair.


 Sew? Would you like to "Sew, Grow, Bake and Ride Your Own"? I kinda got carried away and bought 
5 (five) panels to giveaway! And Aurifil and the Fat Quarter Shop have decided to help! So here we go with the giveaways! There are 5!

First is one (1)  4 block panel and a 10 Spool Box Collection of Mark Lipinski's  50 wt. "I Can Fly " Collection!!! Woohoo! Aren't those colors yummy!


Second is one (1)  4 block panel and 2 large spools of Aurifil 12 wt variegated thread!


Third is one (1)  4 block panel and two (2) large spools of Aurifil 12 wt variegated thread.


Fourth is one (1) 4-block panel and 2 large spools of Aurifil 12 wt thread:


AND Fifth is one (1)  4-block panel, 1 large spool of Aurifil 12 wt thread AND a  Bundle of 1930's Playtime 2 Petite from the Fat Quarter Shop!


WOOT! WOOT!! Yall, I 'bout fell outta my chair when I saw this! How gorgeous would this all be together! And how cute would a machine cover be made with those little spools print on it???

  151. You have hit all my hot buttons. I LOVE Aurifil thread and treat it like fine chocolate, only bringing it out for special occasions and savoring it. 30's reproductions are my very favorite fabrics to quilt with. And we moved to the country, nestled in 80 acres of corn, where I do lots of baking, and sewing of course, and where my husband builds custom bicycles!

  158. I would make a mixer cover for my stand mixer with the 'bake your own', a tote for my gardening tools and gloves with the 'grow your own', and a simple drawstring bag to wear while we bike/hike with the 'ride your own'. I would use the 'sew your own' as the center of a mini quilt to hang near my sewing area. These are just so lovely, thanks for the chance Jan!

  169. Love every one of the panels. Any one of them would be awesome to make either the sewing machine cover or a tea cozy-might be too big for that. Hmmmm...
