Prizes for the Fractured Skull Quilt Sew Along 2021

Fractured Skull Quilt, Sew Along

Well every sew along needs some prizes and with the number of sign ups I have been able to bag some amazing ones!

I am extremely grateful to all of those supplying prize and helping make this sew along to be as amazing as I know it will be. I especially want to thank the small companies/ designers for whom doing this is no small fry. Please do me a favor and go support them with a purchase or follow on social media if you can.

So first up but last to be won will be:

I used all Aurifil Thread to construct and quilt my Fractured Skull Quilt so tag them in some of my posts. Imagine my excitement when they reposted the photo of my quilt on the road bridge to all of their social media. I was super cheeky and asked if they might provide a prize. To my surprise they agreed!! Aurifil will ship direct to 1 lucky winner a choice of 3 of their Color Builder collections. You can pick from both the 2020 and 2021 collections.

The winner of this prize will be selected by me at the end of the final week of the Sew Along and announced on Sunday 31st October.


I have long admired Jenny of PapperSaxSten‘s curvy work and style. While contemplating if I could squeeze in one of her online workshops I thought I would like to share her work with you guys, and reached out to see if she would be interested. In case you don’t know of Jenny’s work please go and check out her courses and patterns. Very kindly Jenny will send one lucky winner her Paper Round Quilt Pattern and a complete 11 piece set of her Drunkard’s Path Templates.

The winner of this prize will also selected by me and announced on Sunday 31st October.


Sew Hot is a UK based company, with a huge range of fabric, notions, haberdashery and bag hardware, I have recently become a brand rep for them and they are incredibly supportive. The winner will receive a Libs Elliott ‘The Watcher’ Panel and a fat 8th bundle of the 12 ‘Phosphor 21’ textured rainbow & 12 watcher skull prints fabrics that all coordinate.

The winner of this prize will be randomly selected and announced on Sunday 24th October. This coincides with the end of my first ‘Rep of the Week’ project at Sew Hot. Hint: I might be making something with some some of this myself for my challenge project.


The very kind Kim, owner of Young is Modern, who is participating in this sew along, is offering a half yard bundle of either Cotton & Steel Lagoon or Macrame collections for 1 lucky winner to choose! If you are based in the US please go check out the lovely stuff she has for offer on her website and give her a follow.

The lovely ladies at SewTites have agreed to send one extremely lucky winner a pack of Libs Elliott’s Watcher SewTites as soon as they arrive in stock! The winner will be among the first people to get their hands on these super useful and cute notions. Useful for so many different applications including FPP the winner won’t be disappointed even if they don’t like skulls!

Patterntrace is another company I work with in partnership with because I love using their foundation paper for my projects. It is semi-transparent, strong enough to deal with unpicking as well as tearing off easily and recyclable. Patterntrace ship internationally and ordering a multi-pack is very efficient. One lucky winner will get a pack of foundation paper 100 A4 sheets and a Makers Workbook for quilting.

I insta-met Natalie from Sew Hungry Hippie while helping publicize Liza Flowers Rebel Girl fabric at the beginning of the year. When she got her Candy Crush skull pin badges I suggested a pin swap between ourselves! Well she knew about this sew along and threw in a bundle as a prize! These include her epic Candy Crush 2.0 pattern, Candy crush pin badge, some super soft vinyl and a few other goodies. Natalie is running a sew along at the moment so go check out her feed and try and check out a few bits from her shop – I love the deep space vinyl.

The winner of this prize will be randomly selected and announced on Sunday 10th October. *** Winner is Sharon Copley


Sally from Chasing Tigers is a personal friend who designs lovely quilts, cases and purse patterns. An inspiration for me starting to write patterns. Her new pattern the ‘Coney Island Quilt‘ will be released very soon. One lucky winner will be able to pick their favorite pattern and it will be emailed directly.

The winner of this prize will be selected at random and announced on Friday 8th October. *** Winner is Alix P @hexenweib


Brianna of Sew Cute and Quirky, who designs mainly bag patterns, signed up to the sew along and is offering one lucky winner two pdf patterns. I really love the support designers give each other, please give her feed some love and maybe some fabric or patterns a home. These are my two favorites!

The winner will be selected at random and announced on Thursday 7th October. ***Winner is Lindsey McManus


Sarah from Lazy Cozy Quilts , another participant in the sew along, has kindly offered her 2 Patterns; Sonic Bloom (which I have had my eye on for a while) and Mod Cabin as a prize. Please go check out Sarah’s feed and website. For a bit of early fun I thought I would do this prize before the sew along even started.

Our first winner was picked at random and announced on 19th September as Connie Creekmore @dandelionquilts on IG.


The majority of prize winners will be selected at random using a number generator and spreadsheet of participants. The final few prize winners may be selected by myself for effort and or creativity if a quilt blows me away. Last year, I struggled very hard to select a favorite as a winner so I may resort to the number generator if there are a few which stand out.

????

Don’t forget everyone participating will receive a FREE pattern (before general release) from me at the end of the sew along! As if I had not taken enough on this month the pattern needs some tweaks, a full work up and the instructions but I know you guys will love it!
