Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day -Winner announed!

NOTE: GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED AT 287 COMMENTS- WINNER ANNOUNCED SHORTLY.


Hi and welcome if you are visiting for the first time! For the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day week I am offering a pillow/cushion cover I made a few weeks ago using some HST scraps from my yet to be finished Swoon quilt.
I used fabrics from Denyse Schmidts "Daisy Mae" range from both here in Australia and the US releases to make this 20" pillow cover.
And quilted it in a groovy orange thread...........
I am more than happy to post internationally too, so please leave a comment below. If you like, please tell me what is your favourite thing to sew, stitch or make?

This competition closes at 5pm on May 25th PST which according to the time converter is 10 am Saturday 26th May here in Australia.
05:00:00 p.m. Friday May 25, 2012 in US/Pacific converts to
10:00:00 a.m. Saturday May 26, 2012 in Australia/NSW

The winner will be drawn randomly and contacted via email so if you think you may be a "no-reply" blogger then please leave an email address in your comment so that I can get in touch with you. Good luck!
Note: This giveaway is just for the pillow cover, not the insert - but it is a standard 20 inch size. And usually I try to reply to comments but it gets a bit crazy with the Giveaway Days so I may not get back to everyone, but please know that I read an appreciate all of your comments.
NOTE: GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED AT 287 COMMENTS- WINNER ANNOUNCED SHORTLY.
I have consulted Mr Random org and the winner of the Scrappy Swoon pillow is comment number 21 which belongs to Wendi  :

  167. I love making quilts, but they do take me a long time, so I need to have a few side projects to keep me going, currently it's little girl dresses but we're moving soon, so I really should start on roman blinds!

  168. Now that is an adorable pillow! I love your groovy orange stitching. I think I have quilter's Attention Deficit Disorder -- I start a project and am easily distracted by the next thing I want to try... needless to say I have a pile of UFOs! But for now, I love big blocks that make up a quick quilt, pillows, pincushions.

  182. Very nice pillow cover - which is also my favorite thing to make. Some of the farmer's markets here in Austin have vendors who sell brocade or tapesty scraps, and I make those into different designs to cover pillows.

  188. Love these fabrics, love your orange thread. This is an adorable pillow, how can you give it up?? Hope you made one for yourself, too! My favorite things to make are little projects like pincushions, pillows, table runners, or quilts with big giant blocks so they go together quickly. I'm an impatient quilter.
