Welcome LiMa Sews + Salt Water Fat Quarter Set Giveaway!

I’m very excited to introduce to you my first new sponsor of 2013, LiMa Sews! LiMa Sews is an Etsy store devoted to designer quilting fabrics and is operated by a wife/husband team of Linh and Mark. Linh gets to do the fun stuff like browsing and buying fabric collections and putting together daily orders, while Mark is responsible for the business side of the store, as well as the photography and graphic design.

LiMa Sews currently operates as an Etsy store but has big plans for growth including a brick-and-mortar store. The website is currently being updated to add longarm quilting services, but if you want to get in ahead of time, please e-mail Linh at limasews(at)gmail(dot)com. You can find the store at www.limasews.com, or follow Linh’s blog.

I love the modern fabric choices at Linh and Mark’s shop. All the new Pearl Bracelet colors by Lizzy House! These are pretty much my all time favorite prints for stash building.



I’m a big fan of Joel Dewberry’s new Notting Hill collection as well.

If you can’t decide what prints to get in a collection, LiMa Sews also sells precuts and bundles.

To celebrate joining us over here on the blog, LiMa Sews has offered to give one of you a FULL Fat Quarter Set of Tula Pink’s newest line, Salt Water! That’s about as good as it gets!

To enter, just leave a comment! I’d love to hear what you’d do with all these goodies. :) I’ll pick a winner Saturday evening, January 5th. Good luck everyone!

+++ Closing comments to pick one very lucky winner! +++

The winner is Nancy! Nancy said: “Quilt Quilt Quilt – that’s what I do!” – January 3, 2013 at 1:58 pm

Congratulations Nancy ~ I will email you for your address and thank you everyone for entering. :)
