Blog Hop Giveaway

Welcome to all our Blog Hoppers…..I’m proud to have been invited to be part of Quilting Gallery’s 4th Birthday celebrations and their Blog Hop Party this year and thanks must go to Michele for organising it.  This is going to be so much fun visiting everyone and making new blog-friends :)

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

The Quilting Gallery site is a great starting point for new bloggers (and us oldies!!!)….it has a Quilting Bloggers Directory with more than 4,440 blogs from 71 countries. In the Quilt Shop Locator, you’ll find brick & mortar shops, online retailers, retreat facilities and long-arm quilters. In Quilter’s Market you’ll find fabulous quilting products. There’s also a world-wide geographic directory of Quilt Guilds being developed and weekly themed virtual quilt contests and swaps throughout the year as well as lots of other fun things.

So if you’ve never visited the Quilting Gallery before, I recommend a visit!

Now, we all know that when you go to a party, there are always lots of people and lots of presents…….this Blog Hop Party is the same!  Woohoo!!!!!!!!…..there are over 200 party-goers you can visit from over 20 countries…..that’s one helluva party!!!!!!  The link to all of the blogs you can visit is listed here..

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

It starts today and goes until December 17th (18th for us Aussies).

Now, for my giveaway……you just knew it was coming didn’t you!??!

069

I’m giving away this fantastic timesaving tool….the SideWinder.  A portable bobbin winder that is a Godsend when you’re in the middle of a sewing frenzy and your bobbin runs out….you know what I’m talking about!!!!! 

This beauty is the Limited Edition SideWinder…..it’s pink, to promote the awareness of Breast Cancer research, and comes with bonus scissors and a tape measure (both pink!)  It takes 2 AA batteries and winds those bobbins in a whizz!

070

All you need to do is leave a comment telling me what is the best ‘trick’ you have learnt for sewing/stitching/quilting that you would have loved to have known as a new quilter.  That will give you one chance at winning the SideWinder.

For another chance, simply become a follower and leave another comment telling me so.  If you’re already a follower, you’re a gem!!!…..and you won’t be left out…..leave a comment and I’ll include a second chance for you too!

I’ll draw the winner randomly using my fave little tool…..Mr RNG….on Dec 18th at 10am AEST (I know the actual Blog Party finishes on Dec 17, USA time, but I’m usually one of those that comes early and stays till last, so I cant break that pattern, can I now!!?? LOL)

So get those entries in….good luck and let’s start hopping!

Sugary Hugs

xoxo Wendy :O)

Hello gorgeous girl! Wonderful giveaway!!
The thing I've discovered this year that gives me a lovelier finish on projects that need to have an opening stitched closed after turning out, is to use ladder stitch instead of a slip stitch. It leaves a seamless finish - wish I'd known that all along.
Now, when are we catching up for our Christmas gift swap??? ;-)
Hugs

Diane H said...

Thanks so much, Wendy. This is going to be fun. I already follow you.

Diane H said...

When your ready to sew your binding onto your quilt don't trim off the excess batting and backing first. That way when at the corners you can just reverse off of the quilt fold your binding strip then start sewing again.
That's my tip. Thanks for the giveaway.

shez said...

my best learning trick was to use a walking foot,lol,i didnt know what it was,it sure does make life easier,lol

shez said...

thankyou for a 2nd chance in this fanatstic giveaway.I am a recently new follower.

barb's creations said...

I wish I'd known about the 1/4" foot you could buy for your sewing machine when I made my first machine pieced quilt LOL I can laugh about it now but I wouldn't sew without it now :) Barb.

Sunnybec said...

Mine is pretty basic but as a new quilter I didn't know to sew the seams in opposite directions, makes such a difference when lining up and matching.

Sunnybec said...

I already follow you. Linda

Marilyn said...

The tip I wish I had known earlier is to press the seam allowances in opposite directions so the blocks butt up together and corners meet neatly, when sewing rows together.

Marilyn said...

I sure do follow you, lovely friend.

Fran said...

I wish that I had realised that going slower meant more accurate piecing - since reducing the speed of my machine sewing I have much greater accuracy & much less unpicking. Thanks for such a lovely giveaway.

Fran said...

I'm a new follower. Thanks again!

Ana e os Viraventos said...

My best tip is pin-a-lot!

Quilt Kitty said...

I wish I had known how to use my ruler & roller cutter when I first started. It would have saved a lot of fabric that ended up with definate bends in them. Thanks

Quilt Kitty said...

I am a new follower too.

Carol said...

I am a new follower. I wish I had knonw to trim to 1/4" before adding a new piece when foundation piecing. Such a time and fabric saver!

Sherry said...

I have been piecing quilts with the guide on my pressure foot but bought a quarter inch foot at the suggestion of another quilter and now my seams are so much better. Today is my first visit to your blog.

Sherry said...

I am a new follower of your blog.

Marika said...

I love that I learned early to press my seams open. It's less bulky and when you work with white, you don't see the fabric from the front!

Thanks for such a generous giveaway !

tiny said...

What a lovely give away . Greath!!!

gill said...

I'm a new follower!

gill said...

I wish I'd known about leaders and enders!!

tiny said...

I 'am also a new follower from you

Maria Wallin said...

I wish I'd known about the wonder that is basting spray from the start, I hated basting and it'd make me not want to finish a quilt because of the hassle and pain with pin or needle and thread basting.

MooseStash Quilting said...

Never hesitate to know the power of a glue stick. It's perfect for keeping those little things in place when a pin gets in the way! That's my motto and I'm stickin to it! hahaha

Great giveaway, Thanks!

mtnquiltr said...

My machine came with a quarter inch foot, but it sewed a little wide and my blocks were not accurate. I bought a see through quarter inch foot that pops on and I haven't many problems since.(Just user error!) It's called the Little something, sorry I can't remember, but everyone should have one!

mtnquiltr said...

I'm a follower too!

Joanie's Quilts said...

A pair of tweezers and an eyebrow razor. Yep that is correct! The eyebrow razor is great for ripping out and the tweezers are wonderful for pulling out the threads after breaking the stitching line with a seam ripper. Can you tell what I do a lot of?

Joanie's Quilts said...

I am a new follower. Consider following me! I am rather new at blogging! I hope my goggle connector is working if you should get there. It hasn't been acting nicely!

Barbara said...

I would have to say chain piecing.

Barbara said...

I'm your newest follower.

Chiska said...

I'm a follower.

Chiska said...

I have to say first of all that I would love to win this as my bobbin winder is not working on my sewing machine. My tip would be that if you think there might be an easier way to piece soemthing--there probably is and you should look.

Quiltin' Sandy said...

Hi Wendy! What a great prize. We have all been through the annoyance of a bobbin running out, this would be so great to have.:0
Of course I am a lurker, I mean follower. hehe. Sandy. :)

Quiltin' Sandy said...

One of the best tips I have found, and wished I knew before, is to lightly spray your fabric with spray starch to prevent the fabric stretching when sewing anything cut on the bias- triangles etc. :)

Donah said...

A Sidewinder, really a Sidewinder,what a mind blower. Wonderful. Best tip but hardest was 1/4" seam.

Becky said...

Wonderful giveaway! My favorite hint is to square up the blocks to make sure they are the right size. Thanks so much!

JoyceLM said...

What a generous and wonderful giveaway. I'd love to win a Sidewinder. When I started quilting, just 5 years ago, I wish I'd known about thread savers - those bits of fabric that you feed into your machine at the end of a seam. I use them all the time now except when paper foundation piecing. Thanks for the chance to win.

JoyceLM said...

I'm a new follower. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Janet said...

Wonderful giveaway gift! Two things: use your iron and follow your instincts. If you think it will look good it probably will. Thanks for a chance to win.

@pril said...

The one thing.............make sure you wash all the dye from your fabrics before sewing!

Lee D said...

thanks for the chance to win this. My tip: after you have machine sewn your binding on the front, iron it towards the back before you hand stitch it on. Gives a nice crisp edge!

Tracey Rampling (The Peony Teacup) said...

I wish I'd known about stitch in the ditch machine binding. And chain piecing, but luckily a lady at my local quilting guild taught me how to do that when she saw that I was doing each piece individually!

Tracey Rampling (The Peony Teacup) said...

I am a new follower, too! Would love to win one of those fabulous Side Winders! What an excellent idea. :)

AlessandraLace said...

thanks for the chance to win an amazing prize. hugs

Kathy said...

I am a new quilter as of this year. My best "trick" is that I follow so many wonderful blogs for ideas and inspiration. Thanks for the chance to win your giveaway.

Linda V said...

Careful measuring and sewing those perfect 1/4" seams makes all the difference in having everything match up. Thanks for the giveaway chance!

My tip is to move the pattern around as you move around so you are always looking at it in the same orientation as you are sewing

Jennifer said...

great giveaway - thanks for the chance to win!

Sandy said...

I would love to win that Sidewinder! I wish I would have learned a better way to rip out stitches in the beginning that didn't distort my patchwork. I have learned that if you clip one side of the stitching every 4 stitches or so and then pull the thread from the other side, it will all pull out without distortion. Thanks for the opportunity to win!=)

Ella said...

Chain piecing! I would have gotten a lot of project done in a fraction of the time...

Flo @ Butterfly Quilting said...

the best trick I learned was Chaining pieces together....wish I had learned it sooner LOL

Pippa Parsons said...

Oh I would love a sidewinder, would make things so much easier, Id love to have been taught how to use a 1/4 inch foot properly on my machine, now I know its so accurate, I love it

Maria said...

Pin, pin, pin, pin!!!!

bohemiannie! art said...

What a great gift! I wish I'd known that I didn't have to follow so many rules!

JustPam said...

I wish I had known about enders and leaders. I can't imagine how many more quilts I would have made. It is hard to get into the habit now.

Carol said...

Your feed dogs can pull up extra fabric and help make pieces fit together when they are a little off.

Mhairi said...

I need one of these!!! When sewing through a lot of layers it helps to have a small mallet nearby. If you use a rubber one you don't damage the fabric but can mash the layers smaller so your machine can sew through them easier.

Missy said...

My very best "trick" for perfect quilting is called Inklingo. It is a wonderful system that allows you to print stitching lines on the back of your fabric with an ordinary inkjet printer. You no longer need triangle paper if you have Inklingo! No more paper to peel off. And with hexagons, Inklingo is easier than english paper piecing..you simply stitch on the lines with a little running stitch..and again, no paper to get off the back. Google it..download the free set and try it. No afiliation, just a very pleased customer.

Narelle said...

I wish I'd learned about chain piecing a lot sooner. Would have saved alot of thread and tidying.

Sonja Threadgill Nelson said...

love chain piecing! Use that ALL of the time. My next time saver is my new tool that I bought myself for Christmas....the AccuQuilt!

Melissa @ Sew BitterSweet Designs said...

I wish someone had told me about quilting as you go - it has made large quilts so much less intimidating to me now and I can do them on my home machine!

Melissa @ Sew BitterSweet Designs said...

I am a new follower :) Thanks for the opportunity!

Jo said...

That would be that there are differances in thread and thy can make a big differance in how your project turns out. Thanks for the chance to win.

Deb said...

I'd love to have a sidewinder to try. Thanks!

Christine M said...

I made my first quilt at an overnight mystery quilt night. I then started hand quilting it. I wish I'd known about sending quilts off to get quilted! Thanks for the great giveaway.

hueisei said...

I still new to quilting, but I feel the quilting calculator is the must have tool for Quilter. :)
Thx for the chance to win ^^v

hueisei said...

Diane said...

I started using safety pins instead of straight pins when I am attaching the lining of a bag to the exterior. I kept getting poked by pins and learned the hard way.

Jsoosay said...

Bright Angel said...

I am a new follower! Thank you for the chance to win! :)

Bright Angel said...

The best trick I have learned is to take the time to prepare your materials before jumpiing into a project. It saves a lot of time down the line. :)

Kristy QP said...

Wow what a great giveaway! I haven't seen one of these before!

A tip I wish I had known as a new quilter - 5 minutes unpicking a wonky seam can save hours of frustration trying to make seams line up!

Kristy QP said...

I'm a follower - thanks for the giveaway!

rita in alaska said...

i learned not to steam press my blocks! dry iron only!

rita in alaska said...

i am a brand new follower, and i also k.a.r.t.s! you're the first blogger who has mentioned they do this big time that i read about!

tich said...

I am not entering your giveaway, but just wanted to say what a generous prize!! Sorry haven't been in touch - life is too hectic at the moment!!

Sewnuts said...

Sewnuts said...

A good tip is to keep an "awl" tool handy (the one with just the point on it!) - it's great for helping "poke" at the fabric as you sew to keep edges even or seams matched! Thanks for the giveaway - Holiday Greetings from Canada!

Sharon said...

I wish I had know about the 1/4 inch foot and how to use it when I first started Thank You for the great giveaway chance

Allycat Creations said...

Definately the 1/4 inch foot. Beginners do not realise the importance of it and I dint for sure. Am a new follower.

Maria Kievit said...

Work with flat ironed fabric, with no unexpected folds in the material. It always throws you off. And I just became a follower too.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

My best sewing trick is READ the pattern more than once....alllllll the way through....grin.

Angie said...

I love strip piecing. What a great idea for a time and thread saver. Thanks for sharing!

Lisa Cox said...

Lisa Cox said...

I wish someone had reminded me to measure twice, cut once when I first started quilting. I wouldn't have so many scraps left, LOL

The Patch Craft said...

Oh my god i so have to get one of these i am winding bobbins by hand.

My tip buy as much fabric as you can its better than chocolate for the waiste line. Working on increashing my stash so I always have fabric on hand.

Connie said...

Buy 2 seam rippers so if you misplace one you have another handy! What a great giveaway!

Connie said...

I am a new follower, what a neat header you have!

Carolyn said...

I wish I would have known about "leaders and enders" (Bonnie from Quiltville.com). What a time saver, and way to use up scraps. Love love this way of sewing!

What a wonderific giveaway gift! There is nothing more aggravating than when I'm on a roll machine quilting, and them WHAMMOO, clang clang, the stupid bobbin goes out. This would be a God send!

Thank you for the chance!

Carolyn said...

Mystica said...

I wish someone impressed upon me the importance of ironing/pressing seams whilst piecing.

Vickie said...

Can't see my post I did the other day, so just doing another in case it's in www somewhere..and yep I am already a stalker oops follower...someone shoul dof told me years ago to read a pattern twice lol,cheers Vickie

Cherise said...

Hello! Thanks for a great giveaway! I'm a new follower! Happy Holidays! :)

Cherise said...

Strip piecing for sure! :)

Anne-Mette said...

What a fantastic give away. I have never seen one of them before. I would love to be the new owner as many quilters before me ;-).
I would, when I started quilting, have loved to know, that there is no quilting police!!. It took me a while before I was sure of this as my first teacher was very "you must do...".

Anne-Mette said...

And yes I have been following you for a year or so ....always interesting to read your blog :-).

Arlene White said...

Wow, buddy so many comments, this is wonderful. Mine hint was learning how to use the roller cutter and mat first off, and patience...... I don't have much of that when sewing.....

Arlene

Michelle said...

Measure twice cut once! lol Thanks for the great giveaway!

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Oh my!!Michelle and I have the same tip..it is the simplest thing to do really!! And buy good fabric...it means everything....

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

I am a new follower....I thank you for such a generous giveaway gift....

Cheri said...

When I first started quilting I cut out with a scissors--my rotary cutter is wonderful. thanks for the great giveaway.

Rhonda G said...

Yes yes yes, I have been wanting one of these soooo bad. I really don't have a tip other then when I wind my bobbins on my machine, I run the thread up through the little hole in the bobbin, then back up through the center and out the top. That way there is no way for the tread to backloop when it winds and wind around the post of the winder.

Rhonda G said...

I am a follower and thank you so much for another chance to enter for this wonderful, and very useful prize.

steph said...

Wish my grandmother was here now to teach me all of her old tricks! I just dabble in quilting because I never learned to do it right. The web is teaching me a lot. Thanks for all the great tips!

steph said...

new follower. Thanks for the great blog.

Nanbon44 said...

I will say my Accuquilt Go cutter is the thing I wish I knew about in the beginning... I use it on every quilt and it makes my life much easier.

Wendy B said...

Vickie....stalker/follower...second chance draw!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

WOW! I have been wanting one of these. Thank you so much for giving one away.I wish that I had known more about quarter inch seams. Then maybe I could have gotten things to line up better. Joyce-ccarter13@windstream.net

Sarita said...

Oh my gosh, I had no idea something like this existed! This rocks. *grin*
My tip would be this continuous binding tutorial:
http://www.heatherbaileydesign.com/HB_QuiltBinding.pdf
It's really easy, and would have saved me SO much time and frustration.
Thanks for the opportunity to win! :)

My tip is something that I'm sure most have heard about, but I hadn't when I first started quilting.. and that is chain piecing and using leaders and enders! That have saved me SO much time and I love it!
Thank you for the chance to win a Sidewinder!! What an awesome prize! :-)

i don't know much about this stuff but i would love to learn

marth225 said...

A couple of years ago I found out about the curve master - a wonderful foot - a must have for anyone

Desi @ Wee Share said...

what a SUPER giveaway!! Always buy more fabric than you think you need. Dye lots change and sometimes the fabric doesn't match at all :)

Kritta22 said...

My trick is to draw the lines on the back of your paper piecing so you can have lines on both sides.

Anya said...

I wish I had known an easy way to make HST when I was a beginner. Now I use an easy method -- two squares, sew 1/4 inch on both sides of a center diagonal line. Thanks for the chance!

The Sleepy Dreamer said...

My tip is to line up the material, and make sure your to be patient with yourself, and what your learning. lnb1191(at)aol(dot)com

Oh my gosh, I would love to have that, make everything so much easier. I paper piece, so it would have been nice to know that it is much easier to keep all the pieces from unfolding if you iron the pieces around the paper first. -grin- Thanks for the giveaway!

My best tip is slow down and enjoy the whole quilting process. You will make less mistakes

devotedtoquilting said...

There are some really great tips here. Mine is to relax and enjoy the process, it doesn't have to be perfect. Also, if I don't stress, I make fewer errors. :) Quilted blessings, Nita

Jackie said...

Love the Bobbin winder!! I have learnt two important things, not tricks but good advice. When you hand quilt aim for consistent stitches, they don't have to be tiny. Strive to match and make everything perfect but it doesn't have to be perfect. If you unpick everything the fun goes out of it very quickly!

Hi, well years and years ago i put a quilt(very old) in the washing machine,never again.
Also never be afraid to ask for help, most quilters love to share advice.
Enjoying the Blog hop and have joined your blog, looking forward to visiting again.

Sharon Pernes said...

My trick is to sew slowly. It's not a race, who cares if others sew faster.

Sharon Pernes said...

I am your newest follower

Kari said...

My trick is not what I wished to have known, but something I developed (although I'm sure the idea is not original). When making long cuts I use a small binder clip to hold my ruler to the cutting board. This lines up the top of the ruler and stop it from moving.
Thank-you for the chance to win!

Mamabill said...

I wish I had been taught to square up my fabric before the first cut. I already wore out one sidewinder, so this would be a great prize for me.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Wow what a great giveaway. I think the best tip I can offer is not to be so concerned about what the quilting looks like. It takes practice and there will be improvement. I think we can be too perfectionistic instead of enjoying the process. Thanks!!

Lori said...

Apparently a few people do not know this but when I sew on my binding, I sew in the tunnel and then a stitch underneath. Stays on very well.

Trish said...

The importance of squaring up and checking the size of your finished block, especially if it is supposed to be a certain measurement.

crafter1953 said...

Hi, Happy Holiday to you and yours, I wish I had known about the 1/4 foot to my machine, saves a lot of time.

Mine has to be the glue stick for sure :)

Peach Rainbow said...

The rotary cutter :D
Thanks for the chance!

I sew clothes a lot. Im using a window or glass door for tracing the sewing pattern.

Cat said...

I would love to win a bobbin winder, as I have several really oldy (but goody) machines. I work with my Girl scouts on them & it would be easier to teach them all how to use the one bobbin-winder machine, than to explain each machine's bobbin-winding operations. None of the girls have mothers that sew or own a machine.
I think the most important lesson I learned besides checking things are squared up is not to "iron" but press your seams. My first rail fence quilt had terribly wonky lines due to my scrubbing-motion ironing!

Cat said...

I am a new follower. Thanks for your generous offer here!

Judi said...

The tip I would have really liked to know is that there is a big difference in the batting you use. I always bought the cheap stuff and had a terrible time learning to quilt.

Judi said...

Quilting Mama said...

What a generous giveaway (once you pay the postage to get it to me. HA!)
I wish I had known how important ironing was to the quilting process. I now iron after every single step. Thanks for playing along, and Merry Christmas from Schenectady, New York, USA!

Donna Joy said...

I have found that pressing really does help. I have been lazy and couldn't wait to finish a project and skipped the pressing stage only to be sorry when I was done. Thanks for the giveaway, the sidewinder would be a useful addition to my sewing room.

CC said...

If I could only enter one giveaway this one would be it! Having a SW would be sew much easier than wasting thread in the middle of a huge project to have to wind another bobbin. I wish I had known how to mark and sew accurate 1/4" seams. Plus the trick of marking it on the throat plate and bits of the machine closest to me instead of just relying on the length of the foot. Thanks for the chance.

suzie said...

I wish I had known about rotary cutters.

Kd said...

The trick I like the best is using freezer paper for a lot of fabric sewing from piecing to quilting. Thanks for the great giveaway! Kd

Make sure that everything is ironed, so there are no wrinkles or bubbles. :)

Hi, you are so thoughtful in your giving, thank-you!

poppyinpink said...

To mark my seams lightly for accuracy.
