LAST Spring Market Giveaway!!

October 29th, 2012

I am super sad that I didn’t get to go to Houston for Fall Quilt Market this year….but so far, I  have never been to Fall Quilt Market, mostly due to Day Job conflicts.  Same reason this year, but I am thinking maybe in 2013 I might finally be able to pop down there at least for a few days….that decision is waiting for another day. (Of course I heard last night that a lot of people were leaving early because of hurricane Sandy.)

I did get to Kansas City this past spring for Market though, but I never really offered you all any gift prizes or anything.  Mostly because I was so busy with Generation Q stuff, that I didn’t really get a chance to gather up prizes for you.  I did get a few though, and I have picked up a couple things since then, so I thought I would offer you a little Last Market prize pack for you….so if you missed it like I did and win, you might not feel quite so bad about it.

Here is your little prize package:

Now to win, you just need to tell me about your latest project or what you think is the best new trend, book, or fabric line out there!

Pretty easy, huh?

I will draw names next weekend sometime or thereafter and get your prize pack off to you!  And regarding the other giveaways earlier this month, I will be announcing those tomorrow, so stay tuned!

So comment away, I am looking forward to hearing what you have to say!

    My latest project…hmmmm that would be difficult as I constantly have at least a dozen going at one time. A recent & an exciting project…I have a quilt in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks vol. 6 !

    I am a very new quilter and not necessarily up on trends, but I love everything Liberty and would say that I’m really excited about their quilting cotton (and that the Liberty bag is what’s pushing me into commenting here). I’m working on way too many English paper piecing projects right now, but I think it’s a quilt of tumblers in slightly hideous calico prints that will be the first one finished.

    Right now I’m finishing up sashing a quilt top, and working on a jelly roll quilt for my niece. hoping to finish both this week and get them to the quilter!

  4. Lauren aka Giddy99on 29 Oct 2012 at 7:55 am

    I’m traveling a lot for work, and weekends I have to catch up on home stuff, so the only thing I can find time for are hexies (portable and fun)! :)

  5. Indiannaon 29 Oct 2012 at 8:44 am

    I’ve just treated my self to some Liberty fabric to make a tunic top – maybe sewing your own clothes is on the rebound!

  6. Mary C in WAon 29 Oct 2012 at 8:59 am

    I didn’t get to go either. I have been to Kansas City for the EXPO though. Lots of Eye candy. Market is in Portland this coming Spring and I look forward to going then. The NEW Tula Pink and Jo Morton Fabric Lines looks fun to me. I am currently working on a Mystery by E-mail.

  7. Janon 29 Oct 2012 at 10:55 am

    To me this has been the year of free motion quilting! I have been practicing and practicing and today, I am going to start quilting a real quilt!

  8. Debbie Hon 29 Oct 2012 at 11:06 am

    My latest project is a hat from the new Sewn Hats book. Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Becky Greeneon 29 Oct 2012 at 12:02 pm

    I am hand-stitching a bed-sized hexie-flower quilt. I keep thinking I am almost done, but there never seem to be enough :-) Latest estimate – 35 more to go :-) Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. Beaon 29 Oct 2012 at 12:44 pm

    I am crazy for Bonnie & Camille’s Marmalade… thanks for the chance to win!

  11. Mimion 29 Oct 2012 at 2:50 pm

    My current project is a quilt for my son who is in his first year at University… at the moment I am hand quilting it! Can’t wait to surprise him when it is finished and I am hoping to do so when we make our last trip to the city before the stormy, snowy weather kicks in!!

  12. Kateon 29 Oct 2012 at 5:13 pm

    My design wall is filling up jar blocks. My only daughter is trying to get pregnant and has declared JUNGLE for her nursery theme.

    Right now I have 1 jungle animal jar.
    4 random bug jars
    1 jar of fish
    1 jar of Shark ! I am loving the shark : )
    Waiting for Happy Drawing and Happy Drawing 2 in mail while hunting for more on-line.

  13. Elizabeth Johnsonon 29 Oct 2012 at 5:22 pm

    My latest projects are feather blocks, fun but hard. Making baby burp cloths for new babies, and a tula pink quilt for my oldest daughter (27). Trends seems to be low volume but a lot of the fabric looks traditional to me. I like color and solids. I see quite a bit of big florals that people are using in blogland. Rainbow quilts are very popular too! Hope it helps! You have some great stuff there I would love to win! I would love to go to quilt Market one day, never been but it is on my one day list!

  14. Margaret Parkson 29 Oct 2012 at 5:39 pm

    Been working on my “Farmer’s Wife quilt blocks. I’m using Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille for Moda and I love the line of fabrics, even though I’ve only gotten a couple done. We are going to lose power with the storm soon, so no sewing tonight. Go away Sandy..

  15. Ceciliaon 29 Oct 2012 at 5:49 pm

    I have never been to Market, but I would love to go one day. :-). I’m working on a Turning Twenty quilt made with batiks for my oldest daughter. I have the top done and the backing ordered, so hopefully I will be quilting it soon. Thanks for the chance to win some swag.

  16. Lynn D in NCon 29 Oct 2012 at 5:53 pm

    I am working on a Baltimore album quilt as a long term project, and finishing up others. In the lineup I have to put the binding on an applique quilt my Grandmother made many years ago. Final assembly of a quilt in two pieces that have been quilting, then bind it. I am going to teach a young girl how to quilt too. I am looking forward to that.

    Sorry you didn’t get to go to Market…hoping you’ll make it in 2013.

  17. Shelley Con 29 Oct 2012 at 6:05 pm

    I just got back from two weeks of babysitting some grands while my 13th grandbaby was born! 3 granddaughters this year…two of those quilts are still in my sewing room! One is in the quilting stage, the other in the cutting stage. So, once I ‘rest up’ a bit , I’ve got to get them DONE!

  18. Sharon Lichteron 29 Oct 2012 at 6:11 pm

    I am making a quilted purse for my granddaughter’s birthday. The weather is so nice now here in AZ that it is hard to stay inside doing anything. I would rather be outside.

  19. Evelyn Hon 29 Oct 2012 at 6:17 pm

    Well, as most quilters, I’m working on several projects. Hoping to finish four memory quilts for nieces this Christmas (made from my mom’s fabric remnants). Just completed an “Elvis” quilt for a die hard fan. Turned out beautiful if I say so myself! :)

  20. carol broughtonon 29 Oct 2012 at 6:20 pm

    I am making a chevron quilt from my leftover Countdown to Christmas fabrics by Sweetwater. Don’t know if I will actually have it finished for this Christmas with my full time, super-stressful job, but I am optimistic! So nice of you to offer the goodies! Hope you get to Market next year!

  21. Lynon 29 Oct 2012 at 6:33 pm

    My latest project is reproducing some old tulip quilt blocks I got on ebay…from the fabrics, I’d say they are from the 30s. (And I’m also almost halfway through a knitted scarf that will be a Christmas gift, but I figured you meant a quilting project!)

  22. Jacquelineon 29 Oct 2012 at 6:45 pm

    I have been working on a Jamie dress (can finish tonight!!) a couple zippy pouches, and an entire stack of Tula Pink to get creative with. =)

  23. Tsoniki Crazy Bullon 29 Oct 2012 at 6:56 pm

    My current project is a baby blanket made out of an japanese fabric alphabet panel. I’m doing a simple log cabin around each letter. I also have teeny tiny hexies I’m working on! But I don’t know why. Lol

  24. Kathy Schmidton 29 Oct 2012 at 6:58 pm

    I always have several ‘latest’ projects going at once but all this past week I have been playing with paints and fusibles and glitzy stuff. Fun and the next step is to figure out projects for the painted pieces. And I think Marcia Derse fabrics are about the coolest fabrics on the market right now!

  25. Rachelleon 29 Oct 2012 at 7:19 pm

    My latest project is still the quilt for my son’s birthday; I still have the quilting to go, but need to get the right thread (tomorrow)

  26. Lisaon 29 Oct 2012 at 7:25 pm

    I’m attempting some quick projects for the holidays…pot holders, make up bags, etc

  27. Jennie P.on 29 Oct 2012 at 7:47 pm

    I love Tula Pink’s new Salt Water!

  28. Judy Blinkenbergon 29 Oct 2012 at 7:50 pm

    I was hoping you would have some patterns for sharing at quilt market this year. I’m anxious to try one. Right now I’m working on a Christmas quilt along with Mama Sparks World. I’m not very fast though and would also like to get back to some American Girl Dollclothes for Christmas gifts. Also I’m having my children and grandchildren here for Thanksgiving so we are very busy getting everything ready for 13 people overnight. It’s going to be wonderful. Thank you for the change to win this wonderful prize!

  29. ritainalaskaon 29 Oct 2012 at 7:51 pm

    i’m still handsewing on my fatquarterly qal and gathering fabrics for a pellons project … and vowing to start some christmas projects pdq while wiling away some of the time knitting a shawl.

  30. Joyce Mitchellon 29 Oct 2012 at 8:12 pm

    I am trying to actually quilt some quilt tops that I have made over the past 5 years. I’ve quilted 8 & donated 7 of them. I have 2 more ready to be layered & quilted. But my bad cold/cough has kept me from that, so I’ve been doing some knitting instead. Thanks for the giveaway.

  31. Carolyn Howlandon 29 Oct 2012 at 9:22 pm

    I am working on an applique quilt, Garden Cats by Helene Knotts. I love the kitties in this quilt.

  32. Crystalon 29 Oct 2012 at 10:03 pm

    My latest project…I have a few. I’m working on a wall hanging for our bedroom, I’ve got wonky log cabin blocks happening, and I’m preparing my fabrics for a three day landscape workshop this weekend.

  33. quiltzyx/sueon 29 Oct 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Latest project, still in my brain/planning stage is a Log Cabin quilt, commissioned by my wonderful brother-in-law. Besides that, I have 2 tea towels from London my friend wants me to make into pillows for him, 2 appliqued cat quiltlets, and a scrappy pouch for a swap partner! Thanks for the chance at the goodies Scott.

  34. Martinaon 30 Oct 2012 at 4:02 am

    Oh thanks so much for the give away! I am working on the Holida Lane pillow, as I am taking part in a bloghop starting 21 november. It is great fun.

  35. Linda S.on 30 Oct 2012 at 4:41 am

    hi….i’m working on some making small quilts from some quilt pieces for a friend of mine (her grandmother pieced them)...she plans to give them for christmas presents, so i’d better get busy right now, i’m loving all the ‘romantic’ florals that are available….love the giveaway!!

  36. Pattie Con 30 Oct 2012 at 6:23 am

    I’m working on a one block wonder. Hope I actually finish this one. I’m trying not to buy any new fabric but the 2012 Kaffe lines always make me want more.

  37. Deniseon 30 Oct 2012 at 6:25 am

    I am working on a giant hexagon quilt. My current favorite fabrics are Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille.

  38. Kim in PAon 30 Oct 2012 at 6:39 am

    I’ve been doing tiny machine stitch on some appliqué blocks I’ve have around for awhile. Kind of a new technique for me that I’m excited about…

  39. Micheleon 30 Oct 2012 at 7:08 am

    Hello! I have been working on some veggie themed potholder mits, some mug rugs, and a jelly roll race quilt. I know I’m forgetting something….oh yes, the pincushions….and the wind turbine wall hanging for my son…...

  40. Jenon 30 Oct 2012 at 7:17 am

    A table runner called fiesta from Kim schaefer’s skinny quilt book. And looking into a new sewing machine which is exciting!

  41. Carmen Wyanton 30 Oct 2012 at 8:04 am

    Well… I’m working on a Dresden Plate-still sewing wedges at this point. I have a portable hexie project from Katy’s Sewing Summit class and a wool applique project that can pick up and go with me anywhere. I have a Starry Eyed quilt to put binding on-this quilt is for one of my sisters. So I guess I have about 4 projects on the go right now, although I am collecting fabric for a low volume quilt to make the cover quilt from Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Nyberg & Cheryl Arkison. Then there are several quilts from Tula Pink’s book that I want to do too. Looks like I’ve got plenty to do this winter!

  42. Shar F.on 30 Oct 2012 at 9:53 am

    I have been working on a quilt for my daughter. It is quite large. It is between a queen and a king. There is a lot of fabric that has to go through the machine.

  43. robinon 30 Oct 2012 at 11:35 am

    My latest project was a quilt in aquas and black for a sweet little girl I know. I know – you’re thinking “black? for a little girl?” but it turned out darling, and she loves it. :)

  44. Judy1522on 30 Oct 2012 at 1:08 pm

    I am currently working on a strip pieced quilt that will be given away as a Christmas present.

  45. MoeWeston 30 Oct 2012 at 4:35 pm

    My latest project is a Halloween jacket for myself. I started with a black sweatshirt which I cut up the front to make a cardigan. Then I added a lot of felt applique. The pattern is called Tricks or Treats Jacket by Serendipity Gifts. I’ve had it for a few years and finally got around to making it.

  46. lynaeveon 30 Oct 2012 at 5:31 pm

    I love that book little stiches, thanks for the chance!

  47. Pattyon 30 Oct 2012 at 8:06 pm

    My last project was a Baptism dress for my new granddaughter. But I have a few UFOs sitting on the table waiting for me. I am working on baby quilts. So far this year there have been 3 babies born and 2 more are due in December. My husband comes from a family of 9 siblings. Add spouses, grandchildren and now great-grandchildren and we hit 100 members this year! I love making baby quilts for all of them.

  48. Carla Gon 31 Oct 2012 at 11:31 am

    I just finished sewing my son’s Tea Bag halloween costume. It was very interesting to make. But he loves it and that’s all that matters. I can’t wait to get back to sewing clothing and quilts. I also love the new Julie Herman/Jaybird Quilts book – I love the quilts without borders in this book. Thanks for a chance to win! :)

  49. Simoneon 31 Oct 2012 at 1:02 pm

    My latest project: finishing a small cross stitch pattern as a Christmas gift for a friend who loves autumn.

  50. usairdollon 31 Oct 2012 at 2:03 pm

    My newest project is “The Gardner’s Alphabet” BOM. It’s coloring and embroidery combined. I’m also working on a small quilt for my grandson that has minkie on the back.

    Thank you for a wonderful giveaway and a chance to win.

  51. Susan Mineron 31 Oct 2012 at 2:36 pm

    I am working on a mystery quilt. This is not one that I’ve pieced, but one that I am quilting for a customer of mine. I will be posting pictures really soon of this lovely quilt! I am using four different thread colors within this quilt. My favorite thread thus far is Superior Threads Glide. The color I am using looks like a copper penny! I love it! Can’t wait to finish this and post pictures for all to see! I may just post a few teasers this evening of the quilt in progress!

  52. EGon 31 Oct 2012 at 3:34 pm

    Stars seem very in right now, and actually one of my WIPs is a star quilt.

  53. Susie Johnsonon 31 Oct 2012 at 4:37 pm

    I am halfway through (2 blocks a month for 6 months) a BOM program at my local quilt shop!

  54. Sallyon 01 Nov 2012 at 3:57 am

    I have been working on a Peace and Love quilt for my daughter for Christmas…..designed in EQ7, lots of applique

  55. Evelynon 02 Nov 2012 at 4:15 am

    My current project is a quilt for my great niece who just turned 1 year old.

  56. NancyinSTLon 03 Nov 2012 at 9:28 pm

    Currently, I’m working on a Jack Attack quilt, designed by Lynne of Lily’s Quilts. I just finished the second of the three stacked Union Jacks.

    I think the latest exciting trend are the “Low volume” quilts and I can’t wait to make one. I’m also excited about the 2013 TQS BOM quilt designed by Sue Nickels and Pat Holley.
