Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day: Free Motion Quilting Kit

Do you want to join me in all the fun? Great!!

How about  “the sew mama sew” giveaway day!!


How about the chance to win a Free Motion Quilting Kit!! I am having so much fun with my 30 days of FMQ practice, that I thought I would share a FMQ kit that I put together (Kit also includes the Supreme Slider, not featured in this picture).

  1. Beginners Guide to Free Motion Quilting. A great book with plenty of examples!!
  2. Simplify Aurifil Thread 50wt. I love Aurifil thread when FMQ, it makes all the difference.9317942026_997e85874f_c

  3. Machingers Gloves. I have tried three different types of quilt gloves and these are just in a different league. Wonderful!!
  4. Supreme Slider. This sheet reduces friction and allows the quilter to move the quilt easily.

This whole kit is worth ~$85 USD.

I will choose the winner at random using This is open for everyone; USA based and internationally (shipping will be covered by me). The giveaway is open until May 16th @ 5pm PST.

So, to enter just leave a comment telling me “What FMQ technique do you like or want to learn”. If you are a follower, you can leave a second comment letting me know.

Have fun!!

*Note: I usually try to reply to all comments but may not be able to do so due to the volumes of a giveaway.


And the winner is:

    454. I like to do stippling, and free-form flowers. My gloves are a disgrace and my super slider has holes in it, so I’d put this package to good use.

  2. gibbspeggy

    456. I’ve never done free motion quilting or any quilting for that matter, though I have made quilt tops for my group, World of Charity Stitching.

  3. Cindy Weaver

    463. This is a great prize! I’m just learning FMQ and would love to win it! I would like to learn flowers and leaves most, but honestly, FMQ still scare me!

  4. Tamie

    466. I want to learn- period so I don’t have a favorite. I just want to be able to do it. Thanks for participating in the Giveaway Day.

  5. Kathy

    472. Wow, what a lovely giveaway! I take way too much time deciding on a quilting design. I research and then debate with myself for the longest time before I start the quilting.

  6. Teresa W

    479. Great giveaway! I’ve only tried my hand at a little bit of free motion quilting, but I would love to learn how to do patterns, like flowers or swirls. Do you HAVE to use templates, or a program, or can you do it on a standard machine?

  7. Susan

    480. I want to learn everything about FMQ. All I have done is stitch in the Ditch or straight line quilting.

  8. Jill R

    481. I’ve never FMQ’d before, but would love to learn. I like loopy designs, or orange peel (I think that’s the name of it)

  9. Joy

    484. I’d like to learn ANY type of free motion quilting that looks good…mine needs some serious work!

  10. Victoria

    486. Every pattern is on my “bucket list” of FMQ list. I know very little, have been trying some, but need lots of practice.

  11. herecomestheshannon

    488. I follow Leah Day online and she does great work. I have the right foot but hear you really need the gloves to make it easier. I have only done loops and my name– i love the idea of doing whatever I want to fill open space!

  12. Krista

    489. I am learning different filler patterns – transitioning from one pattern to another, and filling in gaps with other elements

  13. sweetandsaltydesigns

    490. I really want to learn feathers. I can do basic designs, but I would love to learn something more complicated. I am always so worried of messing up my quilts!

  14. Amy C

    492. (not sure if I have entered already – sorry if this is a duplicate!!). I MUST learn to do pebbles – I love the texture they provide.

  15. erimaks

    494. I’d love to figure out stippling. I just can’t get it down in a way that I like. But I do enjoy the patterns I do manage to do!

  16. angiesue2

    496. I hand-quilt and I’ve accumulated quite a backlog of unfinished tops! I’d like to learn simple FMQ to finish my baby quilts and lap quilts.

  17. Julia

    497. FMQ is pretty new to me, so I guess I have a lot to learn! And I’m especially impressed by FMQ flowers, I wish I could do something like that.
    Thanks for a chance to win! julia(dot)glotova(at)gmail(dot)com

    498. Haven’t tried fmq yet, as I am a bit intimidated by the beautiful work I see throughout blogland. Maybe I’ll just have to find some scraps and play?

  19. brenda223

    500. Ach, your giveaway could have been designed just for me. I’m trying to get better at it, but have a long way to go. I have done a lot of stippling, and free motion on small wall quilts, but I’d love to get to the point where I could mimic some traditional quilting designs and try the so very many fascinating contemporary designs and techniques that I see and read about.

    502. I need to learn everything since I haven’t fmq at all yet
