My First Giveaway!

Comments closed - winners to be announced shortly!

I'm fairly new to sewing, and even newer to blogging - I started this blog about half a year ago after the last Sew, Mama, Sew! giveaway day. It was an avalanche of inspiration that led me to starting this blog, making my first quilts, and a new fabric addiction. So it's my turn to give back to the blogging community as part of another Sew, Mama, Sew! giveaway day.
Those that already read this blog know that I have some particular fabric obsessions, namely Lizzy House's Red Letter Day and MoMo's Wonderland (thus the name of this blog). So for this, my very first giveaway, I am offering up some Ducks - a gorgeous bundle of Red Letter Day fabric. I hope it makes someone as happy as it makes me!
One lucky winner will get 12 pieces of fabric totalling about 2 yards - all 6 prints in both the Galosh and Feather colourways (including that hard-to-find Ugly Duckling in Feather).
The Galosh colourway (on the left) includes a fat-eighth of each print, except the stripes which is a larger quarter yard.
The Feather colourway (on the right) includes a range of sizes from some large squares to fat eights to two fat quarters. 
Aren't they gorgeous?!

And here's how to enter:
  1. I like to sew a bit of everything - accessories, quilts, clothes - but need some more patterns. Please leave me a comment telling me one of your favourite sewing patterns, designers or tutorials.
  2. For a second chance, leave another comment if you are already a follower of Ducks and Rabbits or have become one.
The giveaway is open till Friday December 17th and the winner will be chosen randomly on Saturday. It is open for international entries.

Thanks for visiting!

  10. i just gasped when i saw your giveaway! such stunning fabric.
    I dont have a favorite designer or pattern. I use a bit of everyones tutorial when making something for my little one. It may be a a gathered pocket tute from one blog, to decorating a dress with a fabric flower tute from another.
    The beauty of 'blogland' is that everyone shares what they know.

  11. Yes, they're gorgeous and you're very generous! For tutorials I think Sew, Mama, Sew is a wonderful source. If you want to try to make toys and dolls, then I reccomend Hilary Lang's book, "Wee Wonderfuls"; it has very cute dolls and her instructions are easy to follow.
    Thanks for the chance!

  60. I am also fairly new to quilting. I finished my first quilt this past fall. It took me 19 months to complete. I did all handquilting, not sure I will do that again, but I love how it came out. I did a Turning Twenty pattern. I most definitely will do this pattern again, it was very easy and can be varied.

  135. For an easy quilt pattern that looks difficult, try the "Yellow Brick Road" pattern. It calls for FQs that are strip pieced.

    Thanks so much for the chance to win!
