Anniversary Winner and Giveaway - Part III

glitter of balloon- It's party time

Welcome to the third giveaway as I continue to celebrate my 10th anniversary as a quilter during the month of May. I would like to announce the winner of last week's giveaway:

Research Randomizer Results
1 Set of 1 Unique Numbers Per Set
Range: From 1 to 103 -- Unsorted

Set #1:

81 

I prefer improv blocks or paper piecing. Why fuss around with tiny little points when there's a way to get them perfect. And it's already cloudy again and looking like its going to rain :)



Congratulations! You have won an eVersion of the book of your choice from Martingale! You are sure to find a book with great shortcuts for your blocks. Go to their site, pick your book (make sure it has an eVersion), and email me. They will get in touch with you with directions to download it.


Now back to the business of revisiting quilts I have made in the past. I was visiting my son in California this weekend and spent the whole time playing with my grandson Nicholas. We played on the quilt above, called "Catch me if you can". which I designed with the Riley Blake Designs "On-the-Go" line (tutorial posted here). The fabrics have cars, trains, planes... It was fun seeing it being used every day...

... which is really why I make quilts: to be used frequently, or to hang on walls as art pieces, but always as a source of comfort to me and to others. Speaking of comfort, this week's giveaway is all about it:

(5) 1/2 yd cuts for a total of 2-1/2 yards of assorted flannels!

As before, to enter the giveaway leave a comment (leave another one to tell me you follow my blog for an extra chance to win), and if you are a no-reply blogger, make sure to leave your email address (you can write it like this so you won't get spam emails: mary(at)everywhere(dot)com). Just tell me: What do you like or look for in quilting magazines? The giveaway ends this Friday, May 22, at 5pm, and the winner will be announced on Monday, May 25.

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

In the magazines I don't subscribe to and purchase from the store I usually have seen a quilt on a blog that I really like and might want to make so I buy the issue it is in.

I follow your blog by email. Your quilt for your grandson is wonderful. I guess I look for simplicity and fun designs. I like it when the magazine has good instructions or where they can be found. And of course color is very important.

Beth Strand said...

MoeWest said...

I look for magazines with projects that I feel I would make. I like a variety in the size of the project because I don't always want to be making a bed quilt. I also like to find things that are new to me like a technique or a product.

Diann said...

I look for magazines that have a pattern that I think I might like to make. That might include embroidery or quilts that are good for guys (I have 3 sons!). I prefer that they not depend for their effectiveness on a particular line of fabric since I probably won't find it when I want to make the quilt several years down the line.

Truthfully I don't buy too many quilting magazines any more. The one I do buy is Primitive Quilts and Projects. So I guess I'm looking for that primitive style with wool. And a magazine that includes a little rug making and needle punching.

I look for easier projects in magazines. It seems like the instructions are so rushed in magazines so sometimes it is just hard to follow if the project is complicated.
