Sew Mama Sew Post-Market Giveaway Week
So what if I didn't go to market? So what if I didn't get this post up until halfway through the week? I've been having way too much fun entering giveaways over on Sew Mama Sew and reading new blogs and I couldn't think of a good reason not to join in with a giveaway of my own.
To all new readers - welcome! Here at the haven you will find stories of my designing escapades, ramblings on my girls, and maybe a photo of Jamie Fraser or two. Quilt police need not apply.
Back in March, when my baby "Quite Contrary" was on the cover of Quilter's World, I for some reason could not pass a newsstand where it was displayed without buying a copy. Or three. I now have so many lying around that I worry that if I were to meet some horrible untimely demise, whomever had to go through my studio would be all "Wow. Egotistical much?" and we really can't have that. So I am giving away a copy of the magazine, plus three 1/3 yards to get you 3/14ths on the way to making your very own QC.
The fabrics are, top to bottom, a Kaffe Fasset lime/blue floral print, a lime batik, and a lime dot. All are 100% cotton quilt shop quality fabrics purchased at my favorite LQS, Bunkhouse Quilt Shop in Lyndeboro NH. Using these would mean you would be making the quilt in limes rather than teals. I promise it will be gorgeous.
Two ways to enter:
Way #1 - (required) Please comment by telling me your favorite summer salad. I despise heat and and the less I have to cook dinner from June to September the better.
Way #2 - (optional) Become a follower of QHH or tell me you already are for an extra entry.
Winner will be drawn Monday May 28 at 9:00 am. Please be sure that if you are a no-reply blogger you leave your email in your comment so that I have a way to contact you!
***UPDATE ON DRAWING TIME: I failed to consider my daughters' roles in the Memorial Day parade when I stated the drawing would happen Monday at 9:00am. Since the Brownie troop banner won't march itself down Main Street, I am instead going to draw the winner at 9:00PM on Sunday, May 27. So we'll have a winner 12 hours earlier. I hope this does not upset anyone who had put the drawing in their Outlook calendar and now has to change it.***
Good luck, and be sure to check out all the other cool giveaways!

I like a simple asian slaw -- chop cabbage, carrots, red pepper and cilantro. Toss with some sushi vinegar, toasted sesame oil and soy sauce. Easy peasy and SO delicious!
Pasta salad. You do have to boil the pasta, but then once the pasta is boiled and cooked, let it cool a little and just add mayo, a little pickle juice, some chopped dill pickles and carrots and celery. Then refrigerate it for a while! Super refreshing!!
I'm following you!!
I alternate between a basic ham and cheese pasta salad and a greek saled - depends on if I need extra protein that day or not..... Thanks for the oportunity
I love taco salad, but then you would have to cook the meat, so i was not helpful. I do love a good brocoli salad.
Fruit salad made with a box of vanilla pudding. So yummy!
I love a fresh green salad with pickens from the garden!
You could cook a bunch of chicken breast or thighs and chop themup and store them in the fridge for the week and make all kinds of yummy salads... I know that doesn't exactly answer your question though....
My mom makes one with tiny macaroni, tuna fish, chopped pickles and cheese (some mayo and salt to taste). We like it and its pretty cheap to make!
I'm a follower! And congrats on having your quilt on the front cover--that really is cool!
I have never made a quilt that does not have lime green in it! Perfect prize. I am making lots of quinoa salad this summer but I also make a mean red skin potato salad with sour cream in the dressing. I am a vegetarian but bacon or ham in the potato sald would be great adn quinoq would blend well with chicken.
I love a good pasta salad with penne, mozzarella, grape tomatoes, and spices/oil/etc-- super tasty and super easy!
I've become a follower, too-- glad to have found your blog!

A simple green salad topped with bbq'd flank steak slices and balsamic dressing is one of my favorite salads.

My nana makes a great chicken salad. Take a store-bought rotisserie chicken and pick off the meat. Mix two cups of Hellman's mayo, two tablespoons of lemon juice, 1/2 cup slivered almonds, 1 cup chopped celery and 1 teaspoon Accent with the chicken and put it in a 9x13 pan. You cover it with 2 cups of cheddar cheese and crushed potato chips to cover. You can serve it cold or warm it in the over for 20 minutes at 350 (or until the cheese is melted and the chips start to brown)

I like a romaine salad with grapefruit slices and toasted pecans. A nice squeeze of lemon or lime and a bit of olive oil and sea/kosher salt and you're set.
