101 patchwork projects giveaway...



this is rather old news but the truth is, when i received my box of complimentary issues from the lovely people behind quilting arts magazine, i tidied them away in such a greatly brilliant place i'd forgotten where they were. so when i found them a few minutes ago on top of the fridge (yep, i told you it was greatly brilliant) i thought i'd not only mention that i happen to be on the front cover with not one but two of my projects, i'd also have a giveaway! yay!

this is a great big fat magazine/book (you may have gathered it might be somewhat weighty there being 101 projects and all) and has been split into 8 project sections:
patchwork gifts, me, decor, dining, studio, quilts, kids and pets. there are some great projects, 4 of them from me, haha. i particularly love the soft sided portfolio and fabric envelope pockets by missy shepler in the patchwork gifts section, and the bright hopes pencil case by kaelin telschow is particularly lovely in the patchwork studio section.

if you'd like to win a copy of this great magazine, please leave a comment telling me your favourite patchwork block. this is open to worldwide readers, although i might change my mind if it costs me an arm and a leg to send it to you (i'm joking.) i will pick out a winner on saturday when i remember...good luck! please remember to leave your name and your email address. failure to do this will mean i'll pick another winner...so don't miss out! do as i say! ;)
COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED!

A sucker for a giveaway am I! I love a crazy patch a bit more than a formal one, though log cabin quilts make me happy. My email is sue.schlabach@myfairpoint.net

I love doing log cabin blocks and right now I'm working on 14-patch scrappy blocks for a scrap vomit quilt :-)

What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks for the chance of winning a copy.
Can't say I have an all time favourite block as I keep changing my mind but at the moment I am loving dresden plate blocks!!

I've had you in my googlereader for ages, but I don't think i've ever left a comment before...nothing like a giveaway to bring out the lurkers!

Right now i'm loving experimenting with blocks and coming up with ones I haven't yet seen (i'm pretty sure they're all in books somewhere- nothing new under the sun!) so this Angel Fish block i've just made is pretty high on my list: http://abigailryanblog.blogspot.com/2011/07/rocking-friday-night.html

And i've just made a scrappy log cabin: http://abigailryanblog.blogspot.com/2011/07/scrappy-log-cabin.html which has filled me with inspiration :)

Right now I am loving the cathedral window block, with its roots in origami, I am enjoying folding and hand sewing.

This isn't fair - choosing a favourite block is like choisng a favourite child!
Based on the fact is has a bit of a lot of things, I think if I had to choose it would be the Jewel Box with hts & 4 patches ;-)
Congrats on getting 2 projects on the cover of the magazine - it looks fab!

Sally Waters said...

Wow - great giveaway! I'm in a nautical mood with it being summer and all that so I'm loving 'Ship at Sea' at the moment. My email is: littlesallywaters@btinternet.com
Thankyou!

The Rainbow Room said...

Well done on the front cover!!!! I know nothing about patchwork but would love to learn.... have grand plans for making a quilt for my daughter with lots of love hearts on it - does that count as a block? Go on let me in : )

Jacey said...

I'm currently totally in love with flying geese. I'm working on a project with them, and they are on the brain. Congrats on being included in the 101 Patchwork Projects magazine!

Oi Lu count me in for the giveaway lovely, seen as though you never told me you'd a box full of the mag when I asked you where I coukd get it months ago!!!

Leigh said...

Ooo ooo ooo - these mags are quite difficult to get hold of in the UK. Would looove to get my hands on one. Favourite block of the moment is the Apple Pie!
Only just discovered your blog so, hello :-)

DK said...

I really like the look of flying geese, but I am totally loving hand sewing scrap hexes together and have been for the last year. It's slow going, but that's ok because the completed quilt will be mine and not having a set deadline makes it relaxing.

Sew Quine said...

I'm making hexies at the moment but I'd love to try out the LynneBobSquarePants from Lily's quilts.

Knotenufthyme said...

My all time favourite quilt design is Storm at Sea but a single block doesn't do anything- so I find Snowball blocks super... you can use the middle to showcase a fabric design, fill with applique or focus on the corner triangles... Had Quilting Arts from issue 1 but then the shelf broke under the weight.....

i want to win.
I love you.

Yvonne Brown said...

do I qualify for a freebee?? Hope so!I think log cabin is best particularly if its wobbly. yvonne@yvonnebrown.co.uk

Linda said...

Mariner's Compass is my all-time fav. Thanks.

Unknown said...

I have yet to start my first quilt, but would love to have a go at the simple old fashioned patchwork quilt, before getting too fancy!! Love your stuff, keep up the good work!

Kerry said...

I really like the block 'Swing in the centre", an X type traditional block. Congrats on your projects! I haven't seen this magazine in the UK yet but it looks packed full of great ideas

madaboutpatchwork said...

I'd choose log cabin or pinwheel, depending on the day.

Roberta said...

I love a wonky log cabin, though that might be as it's the only one I've really attempted!
