Many of my followers and quilting friends have told me that I need to change the name of my blog because I am not an amateur, but at heart, I always will be. I call myself an amateur to remind me that every stitch, every fabric shape and every seam is more perfect when it looks like it was made by a human being (especially if it’s me, and I am not perfect). This way I spend more time admiring my finished masterpieces and less time ripping out stitches. This is just a little bit of my journey...

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!!!
Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know that it is time for Sew Mama Sew's semi-annual giveaway day. Hundreds of bloggers will be participating including myself! I know, I already have a giveaway going on right now! But, I did not realize it would coincide with SMS's! Sew, I am having another! And, I'm giving away a nice load of leftovers from the two Christmas quilts I made. That's right, including 3/4 of a yard of each of the mouth watering boot fabrics (Holly Jolly, Robert Kaufman). In total I have about 2 1/2 yards of fabric here:
I blogged about these quilts here in case you want to take a peek at how I used the fabrics:
So what do you have to do to win? I've been trying to build up my Facebook page, so all you have to do is like The Amateur Quilter on Facebook and leave a comment telling me you did or that you already have. In the SAME comment if you want to also tell me your favorite color or type of fabric, I might be inclined to throw in another nugget of fabric. I've been known to do that :) For example, "I liked your facebook page, and I love fun prints and the color green!"
The giveaways will be open until Friday, December 7, 8 p.m. EST. I will ship internationally :)
