Win Edge to Edge Longarm Quilting for Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

Update:  This Giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations Lauren!

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day rolls around twice a year and today I am thrilled to offer free edge to edge quilting for a lap or twin sized quilt.  It is such an honor to be involved in your creative endeavors, and I love to help you bring your quilt tops one step closer to being used and cherished by your loved ones.Edge to Edge Quilting Services

I quilt on a computerized A-1 Elite machine, guaranteeing beautiful, accurate stitches.  The edge to edge designs I am currently offering are all quilting patterns that I have created myself using AutoCad.

Interlocking is my most popular design, and it looks great with a variety of contemporary quilt styles.  Graphic block based quilts, improvisationally pieced designs, whole cloth quilts, and T-shirt quilts all look great with this quilting design.

Floral Spirals has a whimsical feel and is a lovely way to soften a graphic pieced design or add interest to a simply pieced or whole cloth/panel quilt.

I am adding new designs all the time, and I can also work with you to create a customized edge to edge pattern to coordinate with your fabrics or quilt top.

This giveaway will be for quilting services for one quilt that is up to 6,000 square inches, but I still have plenty of openings available if you would like to have your quilts done for Christmas!  My edge to edge quilting rates are 2 cents per square inch.  (To calculate the square inches, multiply the quilt top length by the quilt top width.  For example a quilt measuring 50″ x 70″ would be 3,500 square inches.  Multiply that by .02 to determine the quilting cost.  3,500 x .02 = $70.00 )  Please email me at cassandra(at)thenotsodramaticlife(d0t)com if you would like more information about the quilting services I currently offer.

How to Enter

  • This giveaway is open from Wednesday, December 9 to 11:59pm Eastern on Sunday, December 13th.  I will notify the winner both by email and on the blog by Wednesday, December 16th.
  • Due to Shipping costs, this giveaway is only open to United States shipping addresses (I do have another giveaway of a PDF pattern that is open internationally, so I hope all of my readers will check it out!)
  • If you are selected, I will send you a form to fill out and enclose with your quilt top, quilt backing (which should measure at lease 8″ larger than the top in both width and length), and batting of your choice.  You are responsible for shipping these items to me.*  I do ask that your quilt top arrive between the the winner announcement of this giveaway and March 31, 2016.
  • Turnover is usually 7-10 days from the time the quilt top is received, although it is sometimes sooner.  I will provide a single, solid color, high quality quilting thread for your quilt.  Aurifil is my most common thread, but I will occasionally use King Tut or WonderFil.  Once the quilting is complete, it will be shipped to you via the USPS in a priority flat rate box at no charge to you.*
  • In the coming year, I am hoping to include several tutorials of quilting/textile techniques on the blog.  You may enter this giveaway by leaving any comment, but I would really love to hear about what kinds of tutorials you would be interested in seeing!
  • The winner will be determined by a random drawing.

* In the event that the selected person is located in the Central or West Central part of Ohio, an in person pick-up/drop-off may be arranged.

Good Luck!  Please be sure to check out all of the other fantastic giveaways going on this week on Sew Mama Sew!

    What a wonderful giveaway! I think that tutorials about how to come up with simple design that are easy to quilt on a domestic machine would be very interesting!

  2. Joyatee says:

    Thank you so much for such a generous giveaway! I have never gotten a quilt professionally quilted, so I would love the opportunity. I have quite a pile of quilt tops adding up that I need to get around to quilting, so this would be great for helping me with that.

    I would love to see tutorials/techniques on how best to manage large quilts on my home sewing machine.

    Thanks again for the giveaway!

  3. I have quite a few finished tops that need some quilting. I like to do it all by hand but your rates are really not bad. I would love to win this, and may bookmark your site for future reference!

  4. Tish says:

    This is an amazing give away, and I’m not sure that I have ever read of someone giving away their services before. I love that idea. I always love new free motion quilting tutorials.

  5. Amy says:

    What a wonderful prize! I have a quilt here that need’s finishing and your style of quilting is lovely! Would be
    so happy to win!

  6. Linda Rupe says:

    I love your Interlocking pattern and would adore that on solids just as pictured, rather than a pieced quilt. For tutorial interest, I think tips on what a longarm quilter needs from the quilt top piecer/creator would be good because many don’t understand that some of the things done in piecing make a project difficult to quilt.

  7. JessZ says:

    Wow! Thank you for such a generous giveaway! I’d love any tips on quilting! Every one has their own method and there’s always something new to learn! Maybe tips for machine binding? :)

  8. Robyn says:

    Have a quilt quilted for you is always a wonderful weight lifted! That is the part that makes me so nervous, because I have visions of ruining the top I have so painstakingly pieced.

  9. June says:

    Wow! what a great give away. I really like the Interlocking Edge to Edge Quilting Design and I have several quilt tops I could send off very soon! Thank you for putting my name in the hat.

  10. Megan says:

    Wow! What an amazing giveaway! Both those patterns look so cool. This would be a perfect kick in the pants to get a queen sized quilt top done that I’ve been working on for YEARS! :) Ok, not actively working on it for years but I did start it a long, long time ago.

  11. Jess Lobbe says:

    I am new to sewing, just started this year. I never learned how to sew as a child, besides hand stitching buttons and sewing patches. No one in my family every owned a sewing machine. My mother-in-law made me a quilt and I was just amazed on how detailed a quilt can be. There is so many things out there that I would love to create, hopefully with the continued help of Sew Mama Sew, I will be moving from a “beginner” to a “intermediate” sewist in no time. I would love to be able to finish my own quilt tops, but for now, I need help with this.

  12. Wow! What a generous giveaway! When it comes to the quilting portion of making a quilt complete, I’m always so intimidated by basting and making sure everything lays flat. I would love a tutorial on how best to baste if you don’t have a longarm or any other fancy tools.

  13. Libby says:

    Oh, I so hope I win ! I may just have to buy this if I don’t – I’ve had a finished quilt top waiting for me to have time to quilt for… 5 years ? Come on Christmas !

  14. Faith J says:

    I’ve been quilting my own quilts on a home machine, but with plans for a quilt a month for my new grandson’s first year, this would be wonderful to win!

  15. Charlotte in GA says:

    I would love to win this. ive got a few tops im about done with and Ive never had one professionally quilted! Thanks for the chance.

  16. Diane in VA says:

    Cassandra, how generous and it’s nice to meet you:)
    There’s a Spring themed quilt top in my closet for a special sister and I’d love to have this quilted w/ a graphic /geometric design .

  17. Catherine in MI says:

    What an amazing giveaway!

    I actually have a quilt that I think is twin sized…well, actually not a quilt – just the top! I would love to see it finished.

    Thank you so much for the chance.

  18. Lisa says:

    I’ve only ever hand-quilted small pieces — I’m not sure where I’d start in asking for tutorials. I’d love to be able to do the fun part of piecing my daughter’s quilt without the headache of figuring out how I’m going to get all the layers basted without the cats bunching it up every 30 seconds…

  19. Kathy E. says:

    What a generous prize! I have seen professionally quilted projects and would love to have one quilted by you! Fingers crossed!

  20. Pam S says:

    What a wonderfully generous prize! I’ve never had one of my quilts professionally quilted before. Thanks for the chance to win. Your work is beautiful.

  21. Lauren says:

    How great is it this! Your work is beautiful! I’ve never had a quilt professionally finished and although I’d LOVE to see one of mine quilted if I won this I would send in one of my moms quilts, she has been so patient with teaching me how to quilt and sew and she more than deserves this! She makes GRGEOUS quilts and has also yet to have one quilted professionally! Fingers crossed! Xoxox

  22. Denise says:

    I would love to win edge to edge longarm quilting. Tutorials on how to select quilting motifs to enhance a quilt would be wonderful. Or how about how you customize edge to edge quilting to enhance a quilt. That would be fascinating.

  23. Minn says:

    I love FMQ tutorials, but have been too anxious to try. A tutorial to help me overcome my fear would be great!
    rose(dot)minn(at)gmail(dot)com

  24. Shari Borger says:

    Great idea! My own fmq is pretty poor so having something I pieced that I’m proud of professionally done would be amazing!

  25. Amber says:

    Oh goodness. If anything could convince me to manage to get a quilt top finished while doing grad school, getting to have it professionally quilted certainly would! Very generous giveaway :)

  26. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway. I have only had one of my quilts long armed quilted and that was over 15 years ago. It was donated to a charity auction. I am still learning on how to set up my machine to even attempt free motion quilting.

  27. Heather says:

    Wow! What an amazing giveaway! I’m still learning the basics of quilting so any and all tutorials are helpful. I’m definitely wanted to learn more about FMQ and Quilt as you Go methods, as well as machine binding techniques. Thanks for the opportunity!

  28. Kim says:

    I’m always looking for tutorials on how you choose what pattern to quilt on each quilt. I usually get stuck on that part. Thanks for the chance to win!

  29. Rochelle says:

    I can’t believe this is a giveaway, Cassandra. What a generous offer. You’ve come miles in the short time you’ve had your longarm. I am so impressed. Thanks.

  30. Eeeeeeep! I really want to win this. I’m working on finishing up my first lap quilt and am pretty sure I want to have it quilted for me. I don’t know that my $200 Brother (or me for that matter) is quite up to that challenge.

  31. Melissa Q says:

    I’ve never had a quilt professionally quilted. How about a post about sending a quilt to a longarmer for the first time: things to make sure you do, or things newbies do that cause trouble for longarmers? Hope that makes sense. I’ve considered sending a quilt to a longarmer, but I am a little afraid they might look at the quilt top and not like how it was pieced (too many loose threads, too little seam allowance, etc.).

  32. Mary Hoagland says:

    I would like to learn more about free motion quilting on a regular sewing machine. How about new patterns? I love the ones in your pictures above. Stippling is getting old fast.

  33. monique says:

    Such a generous giveaway! I’ve never had a quilt professionally quilted but its something I keep thinking about every time I struggle to get a quilt in and out of a tiny throat space. Your work is beautiful! I love the interlocking pattern! Merry Christmas!
