SMS Giveaway Day - Dr. Seuss Baby Quilt

This giveaway is now closed.  
Congratulations to Cahrenholtz who was comment was #114 out of 176!
(I had to delete a couple duplicate entries and those entries where I had no method of contacting the person which is why this is out of 176 instead of 190.  Thank you everyone for stopping by.)

I am so glad I did not miss it this time around! This post is all about the Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway Day and if you are here because of the link you've seen over there, welcome.

Recently I agreed to test a pattern for Rachel at Scrapendipity Designs.  It was so much fun! The pattern is called So Whimsy and she created it using Dr. Seuss prints. Since I had leftover fabric from my previous Seuss quilt, I volunteered to try it out.
My review: Super quick, super easy and super cute! I recommend this pattern to anyone who is looking for a quick quilt to put together for a baby shower or toddler's birthday, whether using Seuss or another character's print line.  Rachel is selling it on Etsy and Craftsy but I'm not sure I can link to a store per giveaway rules so I'm just linking to her blog where you can find information on the pattern if you are interested.

This brings me to the SMS Giveaway, I have no home for this lovely.  It measures just under 36"x42" and is made of 100% cotton fabrics and 80/20 cotton/poly batting blend.
The batting was from my scraps so I'm not sure who the maker is but I can say this is a pretty thin quilt which makes it PERFECT for a new baby or a toddler to use during the warm summer months.
This is machine pieced and quilted with cotton and poly threads.  The quilting is a varigated rainbow color in large, meandering loops.
The backing and binding, well, it's Seuss on the front so we had to have a crazy 2-direction stripe on back, right?
If you'd like the opportunity to win this quilt, take a look at the rules:
  1. I will ship internationally. 
  2. This giveaway will close on May 25 at 8pm ET (5pm PST) and upon close, I will use the Random # Generator tool to pick a winner from the comments.
  3. I will email the winner (Please make sure you leave your email address in the comment or be sure I can contact you if you are the winner. If I can't reach you, I'll choose another winner.)
  4. I will mail your winning quilt by June 1.
  5. Please leave me one comment telling me whether you hunt or if your husband/partner hunts, and what, or not. (Odd request, isn't it? LOL- I just felt like being different and figured no one ever asks this kind of question!)
Finally, I have waited to add a label (which will include pattern name/maker and quilt maker) so that if you'd like it to have a customized, short statement, I can add it to the label.  (i.e., To: Curious George, From: Grandma Banana with love...)

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the Giveaway posts, there are lots of them in 5 different categories -- Handmade for the Home (quilts, hot pads, pillows, etc.), Handmade BagsHandmade Baby + Kid ItemsSewing + Craft Supplies (fabric, patterns, buttons, trims, yarn, etc.), Handmade Accessories (hats, scarves, belts, adult clothes, etc.)!

I hope to see you again soon.


Cheers!
Beck
(ps - This comes from a non-smoking home but a home with dogs. It has been washed and the dogs have been kept away during it's creation and completion, but if you have allergies, please be sure to wash immediately in cold water when/if it arrives to your home.)

Gorgeous quilt. I would love it for a friend that has just had a baby. We do not hunt, but our puppy, Monty, is very keen on everythibg that moves.

Beautiful quilt! I love it so much. We are big Dr. Seuss fans here. The quilt would be for my 3-year-old daughter and my 6-month-old daughter to share.

We do not hunt.

What a fab, fun quilt! We are big Dr. Seuss fans in this house and I learnt to read on The Cat in the Hat :)

We don't hunt animals. But I'm always on the hunt for cool fabrics, my husband is always on the hunt for some cable or other (!) and our children are always on the hunt for new ways to delight, amuse or frustrate us!

Jen@thecraftingfiend said...

love it!!! and I and sooo many of my friends are all having babies this summer!
I hunt for bargains on fabric....

Tami said...

WOW!! How generous of you to be giving away a quilt. It's adorable to boot! My boys LOVE Dr. Seuss, it would perfect in our house.

Growing up, my dad thought it was important to teach his kids gun safety and shooting...so I hunted rocks...and trees...and soda cans! I haven't ever shot something 'live', but my dad and brother do.

I have hunted before but not any more. I lazy in my old age and just like staying in the sewing room

thea said...

love Dr Seuss. Keep meaning to buy some of the fabrics but haven't done it yet.

My husband hunted when he was younger .. my son now does. He hunts pheasant and quail.

Bree said...

I am not a hunter, but the husband is. Oddly enough, he prefers bow and arrow. (And can throw a tomahawk with the best of them!)
Love the quilt - those blues are super yummy with the suess fabrics!

brandi said...

adorable!! my son listens to dr. seuss audio books when he goes to sleep at night!
some of my family hunts and some don't. i have 6 cousins ranging in age from 21-12 who have all hunted since they were 6 years old. i, myself have never done it... as much as i looooove some good deer steak i don't think i could kill my own food. if it were up to me to hunt i'd probably be a vegetarian!

I don't hunt and my husband no longer hunts. He does still fish though.

Kathy H said...

That is a really pretty quilt and so many of my friends are becoming grandmas that one of them would just love the quilt.
We don't hunt in our family here but do target shooting. My nephew and brother in law hunt deer and there are many fishermen in the family.

Great quilt! I don't hunt, but my husband was a big hunter and our youngest son loves to hunt and keep the family supplied with lots of venison.

Whitney & McKayla said...

I love this quilt! My baby is almost 6 months old and it'd be perfect for him to snuggle or play on.

Hubby likes to bow hunt mostly. He doesn't particularly care which season (animal wise) it is.

Oh my this is so cute! I would love this for my two year old who LOVES Seuss, also I am expecting and it would make a great baby blanket. My Husbands family hunts. He goes along sometimes. He has a deer head mounted in the garage my kids fondly call him Bucky.

SHANA said...

You know, we do not hunt. No reason really other than we don't like to go out in the cold and dark lol. Love the meat though. Deer is good. I can tell you I love the quilt and have the perfect recipient for it should I win!!

Crunchy Con Mommy said...

My husband doesn't hunt, but mostly because he doesn't really have time. My brother hunts a lot with a gun and some other equipment my uncle gave him just before he passed away, and we've made chili out of the deer meat he caught!

Annie said...

Cute! I have a baby/toddler that would love this (once she can have a blanket in her crib). annie@gluegunannie.com

Neither I or my husband hunts. He is from Wisconsin originally, and his non-hunting family is definitely in the minority!

Trish said...

We don't hunt for food, but my husband hunts predators around the farm. I just read the book "Girl Hunter" by Georgia Pellegrini. Very interesting.

Love that Dr. Seuss fabric. Our guild donates baby quilts to the NICU and this would be a wonderful gifts for a family that's been through so much with their newborn.

ShirleyC said...

I love this quilt! No, I don't hunt and never have. My husband doesn't either. He never had an interest, and he doesn't even like wild game meat.
Now my son is an avid hunter, but he sure didn't get it from his dad! LOL

Beautiful quilt! My toddler is obsessed with Cat and Dr. Seuss! Learning to quilt is on my list of things to do. :) My family and many of my friends hunt, but my husband and I don't, although we enjoy fishing! (I would love some venison in the freezer though!)

I deleted my original comment so I wouldn't have two entries since like a silly, I forgot my email!

Kim said...

I am a BIG Dr. Seuss fan and would LOVE to win this awesome quilt for my newborn grandson! His mommy is a 2nd grade teacher who loves Dr. Seuss probably even more than I do!
My dad is an avid deer hunter. He will be 85 this year and is planning on going out to "get his deer" this fall.

Beautiful quilt.

I don't hunt and I am married to an uber geek so he doesn't hunt either. My father was a fine hunter. He was very at home in the woods and would hunt when he got the chance to.

Jayme said...

My husband is from Alaska and definitely hunts!!! My boys LOVE dr. Seuss and my 5 year old has a Lorax quilt coming his way! How cool would it be to have my 1 year old win a Dr. Suesd quilt??! Thanks!!

Martina said...

How lovely! I now a young pregnant friend who would be very happy about this quilt. So cute!
We do not hunt!

Susan said...

What a cute quilt and the perfect pattern for a quick baby gift!

We live in the mountains of northern Pennsylvania, so there's lots of hunting and fishing that goes on it our area. My husband hunts and fishes, but I prefer fishing over hunting.

Katie said...

I don't hunt but my dad hunts deer

Anonymous said...

Unfortunately, no one in my family hunts, which in Kentucky is an oddity because opening day of deer season might as well be a declared holiday. *L* My son is a HUGE Dr. Seuss fan, but the real question would be to keep it from my 32 year old brother. *L*

I love this quilt! So fun and bright! We don't hunt, but my daughter married a gunsmith who, obviously, hunts. Quite a shock to my system, but he's awesome so it all works out! :) They just had their third child in March (a son) that would love to cuddle up with this quilt! Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great giveaway!!!

Wow, the quilt is beautiful! My son would love! I'm also thrilled for the link as I am hoping to try my hand at my first quilt soon and am looking for a pattern that has enough different fabrics but that isn't too overwhelming. This might be it!
We are not a family of hunters. But we recently moved to a house where we see deer, turkey, frogs, and all sorts of critters. They are fun to watch!
Thanks for sharing your talent!

We don't hunt. Heck, we don't camp or fish either. This quilt is adorable and I have not one, not two, but three little spring baby boys I could give it to (including the one still in my belly!).

We love Dr Seuss here! What a great quilt. Makes me wish I was game enough to have a go.

Me and my partner do not hunt. He loves his fishing though. My dad is the one who used to hunt when he was younger, he hunted wild boar.

Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

My boyfriend hunts ducks and my grandfather hunts deer and turkey :) beautiful quilt!

Quilt+Bitch said...

You are so generous. This is a beautiful baby quilt.

Hunting of animals - nope. Hunting of weeds in the lawn - yes, especially dandelions. Love hunting for beautiful batik fabrics and new quilting stores.

Back to hunting for animals - we don't live in the middle of no where, and we don't believe in killing animals as a recreation hobby. We are not against other people who do this, it's just the way we are.

bethanndodd said...

What a great simple quilt!! No hunting at our house...we only have time for baseball ;) Thanks for the chance! Smiles~Beth

Mandy said...

That is a wonderful quilt! And I was just looking at those fabrics, too...

I think hunting is a lot like sewing - it's something your family teaches you when you're young. Unfortunately, no one in mine or my husband's family were interested in hunting or sewing. (But I've changed that, in the case of the latter!)

My husband and I don't actively hunt, but when we go home to visit family (we are both in the military) we usually find time to hunt whatever season it is. My favorite is duck hunting but deer is good too.

enie... mittendrin. said...

lovely quilt! would be perfect for our youngest son.

my husband started bow hunting last fall. he tried for deer but with no luck. bow hunting apparently takes a looooot patience and it's been wonderful for his soul! he did manage to hunt a couple of squirrels and a bird (forget what kind). i think our children really benefit from seeing where meat (and all other food) comes from. so i appreciate my husband's hunting efforts a lot.

Shannon said...

We don't hunt, but my boys LOVE to go to Cabela's to see the fish and animals. I have to admit it's a pretty cool store.

I did go hunting when I was young, but just to watch and help with the carrying. That were some fun nights staying up late watching stars and trying not be quiet. Nowadays I just hunt for chocolate and plants and fabric and other "lifeless" things ...

love this quilt! I've been wanting some seuss fabric. I don't hunt, but my husband has hunted deer, moose, and most recently, wild boar here in Hawaii.

No problem with dog hair here. We don't hunt in our family, not even fishing. Although as a child I went pig and 'roo shooting.

Jackie said...

Awesome giveaway! I would love to win this for my grandson!

My husband looks forward to deer hunting season so he can 'go out camp'. We all love venison, so when he gets one, it helps out to have all the extra meat in the freezer. So he hunts the meat, and I hunt for venison recipes, haha!

oh my, I would LOVE to win this. I know a little boy who has been wanting a Dr. Suess quilt! My husband hunts - but only fish and chickens, lol. The fish he "hunts" in the lake with his boat and pole, and the chickens he hunts at night, when they don't show up for the coop and he's worried about them ;)

That's a very generous and gorgeous offer! I'd love to house this beauty.

We are way too urban here, so no hunting for us. I wouldn't mind eating anything so fresh though. We do fis...does that count?

This quilt would be perfect for my little man!

We don't hunt (it's not really a big thing here) but my dad is a keen fisherman, which is kind of the same idea I guess :)

Jodi said...

My Hubby occasionally goes fishing with my Dad or his Dad. My dad is always fishing. When I was younger my dad did go "Shooting" (we don't normally call it hunting in Australia). He would shoot Rabbits, Foxes, Feral Cat's, Feral Pigs and when the numbers got out of hand sometimes Kangaroo's too.

Love the quilt - we do not hunt. Actually, my husband is a vegetarian so hunting just wouldn't do for us :)

Great quilt! No hunters in this family. But I think my husband secretly wishes he did!

Stephanie Granite said...

Love this quilt. My husband doesn't hunt because we live in Los Angeles but if we lived anywhere where could hunt I know he would. He definitely loves shooting and the woods

No hunters here. I am a beekeeper though. Love your quilt.

Love the Dr Seuss collection! I actually bought a panel but haven't done anything with it yet. This darling quilt would be awesome for my boy. We do not hunt, I do not, my husband does not. Both our fathers were into light hunting but it was not passed on.

ME said...

I 'hunt' for fun fabric! And my son hunts for ghosts, and Zombies. He's a good protector, for a three-year-old.

Georgia said...

Neither of us hunt, but almost my entire extended family does! They hunt whatever is in season. Ha ha. :)

Kristy said...

I hunt vintage pyrex and fabric! I grew up fishing, but have not done that in years. Sticking the hook through the worm has gotten disgusting as I've 'matured'!!

Shanny said...

beautiful!

we do not hunt-- there isn't really anywhere in the area to.

Nancy L said...

What a fun quilt. No I have horrible aim and my husband is still hoping someone will take him hunting. Let's say I am not good at butchering either as I mangle things I buy from the market that have more or less been butchered. :)

Trinity said...

Too cute!!!! My husband is actually learning how to bow hunt at present. His cousin is a professional bow hunter (didn't know such things existed!) and is teaching him. Hopefully we'll have some great venison soon enough. :) Thanks for the great giveaway!

Lauren said...

Gorgeous quilt!!! Thanks for such a generous giveaway! No one here hunts, unless you count bugs that breach our home security - then its open season no holds barred!

Caryn said...

Love the quilt. No-one I know hunts, guess its not an Australian thing :)

Oooh, that's gorgeous! Thanks for hosting such a fabulous giveaway. :-)

My partner and I don't hunt, but my father used to hunt deer, back in the 1970's and 1980's. (And one of our cats hunts everything that moves, and some things that don't! And chases random patches of empty air as well. Crazy thing that she is.)

Great random question, by the way! Nice to see something a bit different. :-)

We do not hunt, but I love when people give us venison. Yum!
Very cute quilt! My boys love Dr. Seuss.

Rebecca said...

I have never hunted anything- except 4 leaf clovers (does that count?)
I am expecting a little boy in a motnh and this quilt is awesome. I have always loved Dr. Suess-- who doesn't, right?

Thanks for the chance

Brooke Crook said...

I'm not a hunter, but my husband and son are.

JoyceLM said...

I love the quilt - it would be perfect for my newest great-nephew. My husband doesn't hunt, but I remember my Dad going hunting with my Uncle Jasper when I was a kid. Thanks for the great giveaway.

JustPam said...

I would love to win this for my daughter, who has requested a Dr. Suess quilt. I do not hunt and neither does my husband. I am not against hunting, but I find it very repulsive to take the life of something. Hamburger comes from the store. I really should be a vegan.

woorishopp said...

hunting? thats interesting...where are you from? I'm still a student so no husband either! hehe. Anyways thanks for the post! I love the Dr. Suess theme! ^^

Sal Merrick said...

Lovely quilt :-) We don't hunt here unless you count all the time I spend hunting for stuff the kids have hidden in random places :-)

Cherilyn said...

Beautiful quilt!! We do not hunt although my son shot a skunk with a BB gun once. Not a good idea!! It made the skunk mad and my son stunk for a week! Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance.

barefootT said...

Mel said...

We do not hunt. Unless hunting for bargains on groceries count. We do grow some veggies tho. *shrug*

I have the PERFECT home for that Dr. Suess quilt.

We catch and release fish from our dock and the fox, turkeys, deer and bunnies haven't done any harm so we don't hunt them. Yet.

Our dog is a pretty good ratter though :)

Bethany said...
