Free-Wheeling Single Girl Sew-along 2018 prize pool

We already think everyone who has signed up for the Free-Wheeling Single Girl sew-along is a winner, but Denyse, Sewtopia and I just couldn't resist sweetening the deal with some prizes. 

Thanks to our generous friends at FreeSpirit and XLN Fabrics also adding to the offerings we have lined up some SERIOUSLY GOOD prizes for you all.

The Prizes

To help keep you motivated we will be awarding prizes each week of the Free-Wheeling single Girl sew along.

No that's not a typo.  There are lots of chances to win something every single week.

Thanks to our generous friends at FreeSpirit and XLN Fabrics also chipping in,
we have a mountain of awesome stuff to giveaway.   Each week the prizes get bigger and better.

I may even have had a little squeal once the line up was confirmed. Hold onto your hats because I know you will be excited too.

Week 1 


We are giving away a Denyse Schmidt Modern Solids charm pack to two lucky people.  They're bigger than your regular charm pack as there's 75 delicious colours to play with.

To win you need to introduce yourself, tell us what size quilt you are making and post a picture of your fabric pull by 16 September. 

Week 2

Two lucky 'free-wheelers' will win

To win you need to post a picture of at least 3 of your pieced arcs (3/4 of a ring) by 23 September.  But once you start, I bet you can't stop there.  They are a whole lot of fun so fill up our feeds with your improv.

Week 3


Two lucky people will each win:

To win you need to post a progress pic of at least 8 arcs, or two rings worth by 30 September.  Of course if you have more than that done we totally want to see them all.  

Week 4   

Have you noticed how the prizes keep getting bigger?

The thrill of seeing my first FWSG quilt come together was  pretty exciting, but just in case you need a bit more motivation....

This week we are giving away 3 Ludlow fat quarter bundles. Ludlow is Denyse's latest fabric collection  which is chock full of Denyse' signature combination of geometrics and floral designs

There's 29 FQs in each bundle - 19 prints and 10 coordinating FreeSpirit solids.

To win you need to post a picture of at least two completed ring blocks by 8 October.

Week 5

We are getting into the major prizes now, and my oh my this is juicy!

One super duper lucky soul will win


I purchased a copy last year when Denyse was teaching and travelling in Australia and its become a favourite.  I keep coming back to it and every time I flip through something new catches my eye. 

There's 160 pages of quilty inspiration.  There are 20 quilt designs, all beautifully photographed, with step by step instructions and full sized lift out pattern sheets.

Whether hand or machine sewing is your jam, there's a project for everyone.

To win you need to post a progress picture of at least 3 rings, or 12 completed blocks by 15 October.  But of course the more blocks the merrier, so hit us with as many as you like.

Week 6.

Run to your sewing machines!  You are going to want to get your hands on one of these.

Drumroll please, because this week we are giving away the big daddy of prizes.

For the final week of the sew-along and thanks to FreeSpirit and XLN Fabrics we are giving away two DS Modern Solids fat quarter boxes! 

Each box contains 75 colours carefully curated by Denyse.  There's the perfect mix of soft or saturated colours, and versatile neutrals.  

To win one of the DS Modern Solids FQ boxes,  you need to

  • If making the baby quilt,  post a picture of your completed quilt top with the borders attached. 
  • If you are making a larger quilt you need to post a picture of at least 6 completed rings.

You will need to post your picture no later than 22 October.

Please note, your quilt doesn't need to be quilted to be eligible for this big daddy of prizes.  But  if you are on a roll and you want to get it completed of course we will cheer you on 

Here's what you need to do?   

Its easy!  

  1. Sign up for the sew-along
  2. To be in the running, each week you will need to post your progress picture on Instagram and use  #freewheelingsinglegirlsal.   
  3.  Tell us where you live or include a flag emoji  in your Instagram post.  Quilters from all over the world have signed up, so for a bit of fun and to help build the international sew-along community we also want to know where you are. 

You need to make sure your picture is posted by midnight each Sunday EDT of the quilt along, according to the schedule above so that you are in the running for that week's prizes.  For people sewing along in Australia that's 2pm on the following Monday, but if the time/date thing makes your head explode like mine, you can work it out here

Please remember that we can't give you a prize if we can't see you.  If your Instagram account is private, consider making it public for the duration of the sew-along.  Or, why not set up a separate account under a pseudonym

The winners will be announced each Wednesday on Instagram.

You don't live in the US or Australia.   Can you win a prize?


It doesn't matter where you live - the US, here in Australia or the rest of the world,  You are in with a chance. 

Just  sign up for the sew-along, get ready to start sewing your Free-Wheeling Single Girl on 10 September 2018, and post pictures of your progress in line with the schedule and 

you are in the running!
