Giveaway Reminder and My Winnings

Just a reminder that the giveaway for an issue of Generaton Q Magazine will close on Monday, July 29. Go to this post to leave a comment and enter to win. Don't forget to tell me what your favorite quilt magazine is and why.

Isn't it exciting when you do win an online giveaway? I've actually won 2 myself in the last couple of months. First off, I won this wonderful assortment of books from the Fat Quarter Shop during their book giveaway related to Spring Quilt Market. And they are all autographed copies too.

All three of them are great books and I can tell you I love a good quilting book. I may not make too many quilts exactly following someone else's pattern since the design part is what I love to do myself, but there are some great quilts in these books that I could easily be persuaded to make. My favorite is probably Dessert Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott.

Most recently, I also won this colorful charm pack of Laura Gunn's Edge fabric line from Michael Miller Fabrics.  I'm pondering what to use it for and have a couple of ideas percolating. I might see what I can make from just the charms or possibly get more and make something larger? Can't decide at the moment but I do know I LOVE these fabrics. Great textures and colors.

Aren't these all just gorgeous? I love the colors, the neutrals, the prints. Just writing this post makes me realize I most likely will buy more and make something bigger. They are just too good to pass up. I think my favorites are the canvas looking texture and the circles . . . well the stripes too.  : )

Have a nice weekend.

  1. My favorite quilt magazine is Quilts and More ( I hope that is right), they always have bright colors and you can see more than quilts.

  2. Laura Gunn has such painterly fabrics--I've collected quite a few, and love them all. Congrats on winning a whole bundle from her!

  3. Here I am again, since the comments on your quilt post were closed.

    Love that quilt! And congrats on getting it into a magazine. You never cease to amaze me with your talent and skill for color. Brilliant quilt and wonderful bean bag toss game, too! (What ever do you eat for your dinners--I want some!)


WaHoo!!! You're leaving me a comment. Thanks for stopping by and do come back again. Quilt on, Anne.
