Day Eleven #12DaysofColor!

December 30th, 2013

12 days of color logoAlmost the end of the year and almost the end of the 12 Days of Color.  Looks like they are going to pretty much align themselves, huh? So today I have these pictures of the prizes packs.  These are the main Grand Prizes that I will pull winners from all comments on New Years Day in the afternoon after I take the Christmas decorations down (minus some chunks for daily winners as needed {see below}).  These packs are mostly Fat Quarterish chunks…some are larger, some are smaller, some are only Fat Eighths. They were just cut from what I received, and all were not even.  There are 17 fabric packs of various sizes and the one Big Aurifil pack.

In addition to the Grand Prizes pictured above, two Fat Quarter packs of Kona solids will be sent directly from Robert Kaufman Fabrics.


For the “daily” prizes I will pull one winner from each day’s comments to win one of these Aurifil Big Spools:


Daily thread prizes


Along with the thread,  I will pull a fat quarter-ish piece  or two from the above bundles.  Some of the Daily prizes will get scrap packs from this pile (mostly the fabrics from the 12 Days of Color, but I see a few in there from the previous Maple Leaf posts) instead of the big chunks, it will be the luck of the day.


12days+ scraps


So if you missed a day be sure that you go back and catch it. Please try to not double comment on each day out of fairness to others. If I notice more than one comment, I will try to combine them into one…..but honestly, I am trusting you all to be honest about this as well….


Okay so Today’s block is by Laurie Tigner, whom I had the pleasure of meeting in Houston this last fall, ever so briefly.  Here is her interview with Pat Sloan and here are the directions for her block.


Here is the Kona block done up in—in Pewter and Pool (I messed with the color placement in the corners on this one):

Here is the second Anna Maria Horner True Colors  from Free Spirit Block:

D12days AMH2

Here is the third Blue And White  From Michael Miller Block:

D12days B&W3

Here is the Grunge From Moda block:

D12days G11

And here are the Aurifil threads of the day (4648 and 4012):

D12 days tread 11

So now you know the prizes….are you even more excited than before!? I hope so! Okay… so comment away! And remember tomorrow’s the last day of the series and the year…BUT That doesn’t mean you have to leave me all alone!! In January, I am going to be busily cleaning up around here as well as writing up my first three patterns to sell which just happen to also be for three of the classes that I will be teaching this coming summer in Sisters, Oregon. A Shangri-La of quilting events if ever I’ve been to one!

    It’s so fun to see the different blocks every day, and the different Auafil! I was lucky enough to get a couple of spools for Christmas, but nothing like that awesome prize box you’re giving away.

  2. Emily Con 30 Dec 2013 at 11:06 pm

    Love the blocks. Huge fan of stars. Realy love the True Colors block and the Blue and White block.

  3. nikkion 31 Dec 2013 at 12:31 am

    Wow i so love how in the second block each color is not lost on the others. Each tells its own story! And the blue/white is so beautiful! !! And hey who doesn’t like a little grunge now and then??!! Amazing Scott!

  4. Judy Forkneron 31 Dec 2013 at 1:14 am

    I love the blue & white Michael Miller & the Anna Marie Horner True colors blocks equally!

  5. Amy Con 31 Dec 2013 at 3:18 am

    Holy moly how can you have all that fabric and thread near you and not be a gibbering, drooling fool? I sure would be! Amazing and generous – wow! And todays blocks are great – love that fussy cut bird!

  6. tubakkon 31 Dec 2013 at 4:51 am

    I love Anna Maria Horner’s fabrics, and for sure that block. But today is also the blue and white birdie block really cute. Thank you for all this inspiration on using different colours and fabrics. Some of them are fabrics I have never tried, but certainly will do.

  7. Karen Milleron 31 Dec 2013 at 5:31 am

    Loving the Blue and White bird from Michael Miller! Congrats on the teaching event at Sisters! How very exciting… Happy New Year!

  8. Kayon 31 Dec 2013 at 5:51 am

    Pewter and Pool go so well together, all shades of aqua have always been my favourite choice for a lot of things.

  9. Vicki Hon 31 Dec 2013 at 5:56 am

    Love the fussy cut bird in the Blue and White block. I have my fingers crossed for those great prizes.

  10. Sandy Kon 31 Dec 2013 at 5:58 am

    I am in love the with fabrics you used in the True Colors block today. Happy New Year.

  11. dianeon 31 Dec 2013 at 6:21 am

    Love this block in True Colors!

  12. Audrey Goodwinon 31 Dec 2013 at 6:31 am

    This is the most awesome block! Each one was beautifully presented, and the thread, breathtaking. I have just recently realized how cool the varigated threads are, and while I have a blue and violet, I’ve never even seen Orange! OMG! I wish I had a tiny bit of what you have a whole lot of, confidence, talent, and “sticktoittiveness”.

  13. Ceciliaon 31 Dec 2013 at 6:35 am

    All of your blocks look great today. I do like the way your Kona block looks. The prizes look great! Thanks for all of the fun.

  14. Becky Greeneon 31 Dec 2013 at 7:17 am

    What great prize packs!! Thanks for all your hard work! Anna Maria Horner fabrics certainly do make stunning blocks! I am making a city sampler with her fabrics and sometimes worry about scale or pattern, but they always turn out so well. The saturated colors, I think…. Love that fussy-cut bird, too – just perfect!

  15. Kathyon 31 Dec 2013 at 7:39 am

    love each of these and of course the prizes look fabulous! Glad to know I will be in good company taking down my Christmas decorations. I take it you will be in Sisters for their annual quilt show. Hopefully I can make it this year. I’‘ve only been there once but loved it.

    Yup, I’ll be there! And I am super Thrilled to be there again!!

  16. melissaon 31 Dec 2013 at 8:56 am

    Fun posts these have been! I can’t resist the bird block. Keeping my fingers crossed for any of the prizes. Happy New Year to you! :)

  17. Laura F.on 31 Dec 2013 at 9:22 am

    Loving all of these blocks! Plus awesome prizes!!

  18. Pamon 31 Dec 2013 at 9:40 am

  19. Bethanyon 31 Dec 2013 at 9:44 am

    I love the AMH block!

  21. Alexison 31 Dec 2013 at 10:50 am

    The True Colors is so sweet today.
    And what a heap of prizes! Wow!

  22. Donna Joyon 31 Dec 2013 at 11:12 am

    I am really enjoying coming here and seeing how the different fabrics change the look of the blocks. Blue is my favorite, love the bird. True colors is my next favorite, love all the textures in the gorgeous colors.
    Wow love the pile of fabrics you are giving away, wish I could be ironing those beauties. Thanks so much for taking the time to share all these wonderful quilt block choices. I really appreciate it.

  23. Lonormi Manuelon 31 Dec 2013 at 11:14 am

    Grunge Block is my favorite!

  24. Janice Mc Larenon 31 Dec 2013 at 11:22 am

    Love the True color block and the block design itself is great.

  25. nadia wilsonon 31 Dec 2013 at 11:28 am

    I just stumbled upon your site! I love the colours and visual variety here! Thanks for a chance to win!

  26. Cathy Cameronon 31 Dec 2013 at 11:33 am

    Amazing how much different the block looks depending on your fabric choices!

  27. Dianeon 31 Dec 2013 at 11:33 am

  28. Elizabeth Son 31 Dec 2013 at 11:35 am

  29. audreyon 31 Dec 2013 at 11:44 am

    Love this block! The Kona and True Colors both are looking wonderful! So much fun to see the blocks like this. Amazing looking prizes too! You have totally outdone yourself this season!

  30. Kathy MacKiedon 31 Dec 2013 at 11:47 am

    It’s amazing how fabric and color choices can make sucha big difference!

  31. julie won 31 Dec 2013 at 12:03 pm

    love the pewter and pool and the grunge from Moda the best

  32. Janiceon 31 Dec 2013 at 12:58 pm

    I don’t know how you managed to do these 12 days in-between Christmas and work but it was wonderful to watch and see. Maybe you can be lazy next week.

  33. Jessica P.on 31 Dec 2013 at 1:09 pm

    Apparently I am really into blue and white. I love the bird in the center!

  34. Joyon 31 Dec 2013 at 1:44 pm

    Wow, what a pile of fabric goodness! I’m normally not a big fan of browns, but today’s “Threads of the Day” are beautiful together. I really should play with variegated threads more, I always love how they look on the spools.

  35. Maraon 31 Dec 2013 at 1:49 pm

    I like the way you messed with the placement on the Kona block, but the Blue and White fabric is my favorite, love the fussy cut bird.

  36. Maryellenon 31 Dec 2013 at 2:05 pm

    Love the fussy cut center in Blue and White, and the frame look in Anna Maria Horner’s fabric. Great prizes!! Thanks so much for doing this.

  37. Evie Hon 31 Dec 2013 at 6:28 pm

    Oh, my, I love these blocks! The True Colors and Blue and White blocks are especially nice. Thanks for getting me to “think outside the block”!

  38. usairdollon 31 Dec 2013 at 7:25 pm

    Love this block! The True Colors is my fav today. Nice block for fussy cutting or showing off some special fabric. The fabric bundles for the prizes look awesome! My toes are twittching just looking at it all, hehe. Love the Aurifil thread colors, all are a yummy and a must for my machine. Cool that the big spools are prizes as well. Thanks for another great day of color!

  39. Janiceon 31 Dec 2013 at 8:01 pm

    The prizes are wonderful! A very generous offering from you and your sponsors! Thanks For the chance but mostly thanks for your inspirational work!

  40. Allyson LePenskeon 31 Dec 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Once again…... Love all of them. Amazing how playing in the crayon box can give you such wonderful results!

  41. Pattyon 31 Dec 2013 at 9:53 pm

    The fussy cut bird is pretty in the blue and white block. I like the colors of the first block together, pewter and pool.

  42. Deborah Hillmanon 01 Jan 2014 at 1:05 am

    Love this block and all of the fabric choices! Hope to get to Sisters one year- soon!

  43. Maryon 01 Jan 2014 at 1:47 am

    I’m loving the “Grunge” in all your blocks, and love the fussy cut bird here!

  44. Lizzieon 01 Jan 2014 at 3:32 am

    You know, I actually like each one of these equally today! Awesome job! Happy New year!!

  45. mary jo olsonon 01 Jan 2014 at 6:27 am

    I was surprised how much I liked both the blue and white from Michael Miller and the solid combinations.
    I will miss seeing new blocks.

  46. Deborah DiGiacomoon 01 Jan 2014 at 9:06 am

    They are fabulous. I’m going to make a quilt for my new apartment and can’t wait to try them all! I love rainbows and now have an excuse to use so many colors.

  47. Heidion 01 Jan 2014 at 10:29 am

    This is one of my favorite blocks of the series, and I love all four this time!

  48. Crystal Flemmeron 01 Jan 2014 at 10:33 am

    Love all the blocks, as usual. But there is something pretty cool about the true colors AMH block. Really draws me in. Also, I just got my Quilter’s Affair class list and your classes look fantastic! Great offerings, Scott. :)

  49. Judy Hoodon 01 Jan 2014 at 10:43 am

    I am new to quilting and am enjoying all the new designs and colors. Want to try a square in each one! My two favorites are “true colors” so spring like and the “blue and white” however, I am partial to horses so I would probably substitute…but of course everyone would use their own colors regardless. Beautiful work by all!

  50. Margareton 01 Jan 2014 at 10:55 am

    I’m having a hard time choosing my favorite today. I just love the True Colors fabrics you used, but that fussy cut bird is so pretty…. And the Grunge colors and Kona colors are great…..

  51. Janon 01 Jan 2014 at 11:33 am

    Love the blocks and really want some of the variegated thread….love it. Sisters is a beautiful little town and the best quilt show. We live an hour and a half away, a great place to go.
    Thanks. Jan

  52. Linda Flemingon 01 Jan 2014 at 11:41 am

    It’s tough to choose a favorite today but I’ll go with the Grunge – those threads colors are beautiful too!
    Thanks for all your hard work.
    It’s been fun seeing your 12 days!

  53. Cathy Gon 01 Jan 2014 at 11:47 am

    The blue block with the bird in the center is gorgeous and I’m not usually a blue person. I do love birds though, have lots of bird feeders up in the backyard and we get lots of woodpeckers, cardinals, chickadees, blue jays, nuthatches, and in the summer, hummingbirds. Lots of squirrels too. They keep my 4 cats entertained. Love your daily blogs on the 12 Days, very interesting and educational. Thanks so much!

  54. Carolyn Montgomeryon 01 Jan 2014 at 2:18 pm

    i love all of the colors you are using in these blocks. would love to win a daily prize or (be still my heart) the grand prixe. thanks for the chance to win.

  55. Carolyn Montgomeryon 01 Jan 2014 at 2:21 pm

    love all of your color choices, beautiful.

  56. Sarah Veeon 01 Jan 2014 at 6:20 pm

    The prizes look so pretty! LOVE the variegated thread today – thanks for taking the photos close enough (and clear enough!) so we/I can write down the numbers!! Love the Anna Maria Horner block today – the middle fabric has so much movement to it. The fussy cut blue and white one is nice too. I found out of all the blocks from this series, that this is the one I would do a whole quilt of – which surprised me. You did a great job highlighting the possibilities here today. Thanks again :)

  57. Elizabeth Johnsonon 01 Jan 2014 at 8:23 pm

    Been gone and missed these two so maybe you are drawing tomorrow. I love the Kona block and grunge! I see those 50 wt thread thrown in as a prize (building my Aurifil collection). And lovely stacks of fabric

  58. Amy @ Sew Incredibly Crazyon 01 Jan 2014 at 10:42 pm

    Loving the grunge, but the little fussy cut birdie is my favorite.

  59. shirley teneron 03 Jan 2014 at 8:15 am
