Happy Place Show-and-Tell!


We've come to the last day of this fabulous blog hop. A big thanks again to Marian for all that she does!

****************************************
First, I'd like to announce the winner of the giveaway that occurred during my post for the Happy Place Row-Along. 

Gretchen has won the Inspired LED sewing machine kit; Congratulations Gretchen!

****************************************
So the day is here to show the projects we made with our Happy Place Row-Along rows, (or someone else's row). I made two projects with my own row.

Just to refresh your memories, here's what my final row design looked like:

And the sewn row:

****************************************
I decided to turn my completed row into a wall hanging. I added a flying geese border on the top and bottom. 



I was leery of quilting the piece, because of all the applique. So I just quilted-in-the-ditch around each block, and added a binding. Here's the wall hanging...hanging on a wall:



****************************************

I had already chosen my fabrics for my row before Northcott so generously gave us a choice of some of theirs. My row colors didn't quite match up with the fabric I selected (due to the turquoise I had included), so I decided to make a secondary project using the Northcott fabric.

The Northcott fabric is a fun buoy design from their Seafood Shack line:



22119-48


 I chose to turn another Nauset Light Beach block into another small wall hanging, with more flying geese. I quilted in the ditch around the blocks, and then did some straight line quilting on the border.
So that's my contribution to Show-and-Tell! 

Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. I will reply to all comments via email, unless you're a No Reply blogger. I appreciate your thoughts!

Rules and Guidelines For Giveaways (from Marian)
Please take the time to read:

Giveaways offered by sponsors are assigned to the various bloggers for their featured day.

There are no prior announcements on who is doing which sponsor except to the sponsor themselves.

You'll have to visit the blog or the featured blog to enter the giveaways.

Not all giveaways can be entered at Seams To Be Sew.

I will start announcing winners on September 11, 2018, and finish announcing winners on October 10, 2018.

In most cases, the blog where you won at also will announce their 
winners.

You must give a valid email address when you enter the giveaways, any email returned to me, loses the ability to win automatically.

With the exception of Show and Tell Day, all giveaways run for approximately one week.

You are given 3 days to answer the email, if you do not answer within 3 days a new winner will be drawn. Check those spam/junk mail folders, you may miss that winning email if you don't do so because there are no exceptions to this rule.

If you are notified that you are a winner, in most cases, you will need to provide your name, address, city, state, zip code, country, telephone number, and email address.

In some cases, you will be asked to comment on the blog to enter the giveaway... do the right thing and thank them for the time it took to create the pattern, thank them for the pattern and...

Thank the sponsor by buying their products for the giveaways. This helps them continue to offer great prizes for these types of events. You can also comment on their social media pages. Even if you don't win, letting them know you love their products is a huge incentive and they really do love hearing from you.

No purchase whatsoever is necessary.

You must be 18+ in order to win a gift.

You are responsible for claiming and paying any tax owed on the value of any gift that you win. Prizes valued at $500.00 should be claimed.

Odds of Winning a prize are based on a total number of rafflecopter entries during each week and in total for all giveaways.

This giveaway is void where prohibited by law.

Participating bloggers may enter any of the giveaways.

The word giveaways in the rules and guidelines are also known as sweepstakes.

Most of the giveaways are international shipping this year
in some cases, you will be asked to pay for shipping your giveaways.

I am not rich and I do not ask sponsors for money, they provide prizes only.

If they shipped the prize to me, you will be asked to pay for shipping.
All giveaways will be shipped that are in my home within 48 hours of my having heard from you.

An invoice will be sent to you via Paypal, and shipping will take place via Paypal, so your Paypal email will be needed to send the invoice. You will receive a tracking number except for overseas shipments. All shipping will either be first class which averages out at 2.77 to 4.00 up to 13 ounces. Paypal fees are added to that amount to cover that fee. All fabric bundles from Michael Miller, Hoffman, and Moda will be shipped via Priority Mail to protect the fabric itself.

Please note, every effort is made to protect the prizes. They go into a plastic bin when I receive them, and it is covered by an air tight cover. I have a dog in my home and I have a smoker in my home, so I do everything possible to protect the prizes.

Most companies are very good about getting prizes off to customers quickly also, but some companies are overseas, so please allow all sponsors a 2-week time period before you report to me that you still haven't received your prize. When the company is overseas, it can take 6 weeks to 90 days for an item to also arrive.

Whether or not you read the above, the rules for giveaways are in place to protect everyone. I do not want to hear you didn't read them, they will be posted on my blog daily during each featured day. There is no excuse for not reading them.

  6. My parents owned a yacht when my children was growing up. Most weekends in the summer were spent with family fishing, shopping, parks or just riding on the beautiful boat on hot summer day watching the teens being pulled on a tube. Using this as a wall hanging is only right to be reminded of beautiful days by the water. Thank you for your hard work
