Giveaway Day: Seaside Bundle

Update: The winner is #89: Sarah J.

Welcome new and long-time visitors. If you're visiting from Giveaway Day, I'm so glad you came! 
I'd love if you'd consider stopping back when you get a chance. Below is a quick snapshot of the type of sewing projects I've been up to lately. Quilting Mod is also a great place to find highlights from quilt shows, tutorialsfree patterns, a linky party collection, and a quilt-alongs
I have several more giveaways going on, so you might want to follow the Quilting Mod blog via Bloglovin', Feedly, or e-mail (in the sidebar) so that you don't miss out. I'm on Instagram too!
Follow on BloglovinInstagram
If you are a regular around here, I'd like to mention how much I appreciate you. I'd also be remiss if I didn't give you a heads up about the massive amount of fun sewing-related giveaways happening now at Sew Mama Sew.
Let's get to the details about the prize and how to get in the running. For your chance to win a seaside bundle including Seaside Quilts, the Under the Sea and Aloha Mermaid quilt patterns, Contempo and Shannon Cuddle charm packs, and a package of Scandinavian Swimmers (unless I'm hungry and find the temptation too great) tell me in the comments if you live anywhere near the ocean, unlike myself. For an extra entry, tell me how you follow the Quilting Mod blog. A winner will be selected Monday, Dec. 12.
