Summer in the South: Silly Mama Quilts Review & Giveaway

Having summer parties and BBQ's are the greatest! Good friends and good times! Along with hosting parties, you need to have your house/backyard looking nice! Silly Mama Quilts can help with that!

Brooke, the owner of the Etsy shop contacted me about being a part of my Summer in the South event. I am so happy that she did! Her shop is filled with her very creative, very beautiful, work! She offers Lap Quilts, Table Runners, Bags and Purses, and Baby Quilts! Everything in her shop is handcrafted by Brooke with love!




For my review, she sent me the Singing the Blues table runner! About the runner: This table runner in blues and greens would be a fresh addition to your indoor or outdoor decor. It measures 13 x 47 1/2. I used Hobbs 80/20 for batting and meandering and curvy lines for quilting. The print on the other side has children fishing which makes this runner reversible.



I 100% LOVE this runner! I have never used a table runner before. After putting it on my table and seeing that way it looks, there is no way that I'm taking it off! Any guest that has come over to my house has commented on it! Everybody thinks it beautiful and is thinking about ordering one themselves! It adds a very nice touch to the table. Instead of the table sitting there looking bare, it has 'pop'! 


The work on the runner is phenomenal! The little details are wonderful! It is very well made and doesn't look cheap what-so-ever! There is no way that you could buy something like this at the store! The colors are vibrant, and if I ever wanted a change, all I would have to do is flip it over since it's reversible! It's like I actually have two runners instead of one!


Brooke offers free shipping on all items! Who doesn't love free shipping!? She also has a sale going on right now. It's the 'Christmas in July Sale'! She is offering 10% off EVERYTHING in her shop! And for my wonderful readers, she if offering an extra 5% off on top of the 10%! All you have to do is convo her when you are ready to order and she'll take care of it for you! That is amazing! Better hurry and get over there and start ordering before July is over!
