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!

  56. Sometimes simple quilts are the best quilts! I often use flannel on the backs of quilts but live in AZ so I don't make flannel quilts!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I need to be inspired by some projects in the magazine and do want to learn something new. I am an experienced sewer so easy is not always the spark for me. I love love color so any pics that are colorful will get me to that magazine.

  59. 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.

  60. I look for patterns, good tutorials and inspiration from a quilting magazine!

  68. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I like large lovely pictures and plenty of blocks to play with.

    ReplyDelete
  70. 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.
