My Happy Place and Giveaway

Welcome to my day of the
I am so excited to be joining Marian of
Seams to Be Sew for this years
Row Along.
I have joined in on the row along the
every year and have enjoyed the creative 
process in designing for each one.  
This one was no different.

Our task was to find our HAPPY PLACE.
Well, I absolutely love being able 
to go to church, 
to spend time with my family, 
to go to the mountains,
to my garden,
to sew in my sewing room..
The list could go on and on.
I love each and every one of
these, but I thought about
another direction to go in.

Well, I gave a little hint on my Facebook 
and Instagram page.

Can you guess where my Happy Place is?
I find that my Happy Place is 
in this country that I live in.
It allows me so many freedoms, 
that others do not have the opportunity of.
So, I chose to make a representation 
of the USA.

Mr. Uncle Sam.
I am a little stuck on the whole
Nutcracker theme, so 
be prepared this could continue 
for awhile.
My row from last year is proof
of that.

You can find the free pattern to 
Uncle Sam, HERE.

After a bit, 
he will be available to be purchased for a fee.

A huge thank you to Northcott Fabrics.
Uncle Sam's face, cheek color,
nose, and boots were all cut from
the Toscana Collection.
I love the beautiful variation in
the fabric.
Just Gorgeous!!

How about a wonderful little giveaway:
An LED Light: a $30 value
(Sewing Machine not included)

Stop in to all the participants today:
Each is going to show off their
Happy Place.

Quilter's Meet and Greet

Hello and Welcome to the

If you have never been here before, 
or you are one of my old friends, 
Welcome to my blog
Sew Incredibly Crazy.
My name is Amy.

I never knew how fitting that
blog name would be when I 
chose it 6 years ago.

I really love to create.
I started quilting on a whim.
I entered a contest that Moda 
was having and I happened on
being in the top 10.
This jolted me into quilting.
I have never taken a quilting/sewing class
in my life unless you count 6th grade 
Home Ec.  Which I just found out
from my quilting friends is just odd.
(Hence the blog name) 

I have created a number of items in 
the past 6 years, but my absolute favorite has
been this one.

It is called Nutty Christmas.
It was designed and sewn by yours truly
and quilted by the super talented Jeanette Parker.
You can find the pattern to the quilt Here.

The reason I chose this quilt is because, 
it makes me feel like I am truly a quilt designer.
I never had that feeling until I created this cutie.

The inspiration came from my children who 
just love nutcrackers. 
Only problem is, I will have to make 
a couple more of these so each of us can have 
one to enjoy.
They have a tendency to claim everything 
I make. 

My favorite technique is applique.
Here are just a few of my other quilts.

I am also a Thermoweb designer, 
which I love.  They are always so very good 
to their designers.  Here is a 
leaf garland that is a free project I 
created over at Thermoweb

I am also an Island Batik Ambassador, 

This is my first year creating with them, 
and it has been an absolute pleasure. 

One project that I took on three years ago was
to have a Block of the Month.
  A couple designer and I
 have had themes of -  In Our Garden
Sun, Sand, and Sea, and this year is 
I absolutely love being able to work
with such talented ladies that
push me to be a better designer and
are women that I get to call my friends.

If you are new, feel free to stop and
check out some more of my blog.
You can also find me on 
and also we have a Facebook page for our BOM.
I also sell my patterns on 

If you want to see more quilters to 
meet and greet.
Stop in HERE.
There is a whole line up
of great quilter participating.

If that is not all, there is a huge giveaway
going on as well.

Leaf Garland - Free Pattern

Looking for a fun little project
for Fall.
How about some DIY leaf garland?
I am over at Thermoweb
showing how to make this fun little 
d├ęcor item.

To make the garland, 
you will need just a few supplies.
You can find the whole list HERE.

I used some of my favorite 
Heatn'Bond products.
are my newest favorite.
If you paper piece, these 
will make your life sooooo
much easier or if you decide to 
make this leaf garland.

I even painted myself a 
new sign to go out front.
The garland only stayed on it for 
a bit, then it found it's home 
on our living room shelf.

I can't wait to show 
you the Welcome sign 
I painted for winter.
I love it even more than 
this one.
