A Giveaway!


It’s fun to see all of the color combinations of your

Dresden Quilt Workshop Samplers

that are being sewn & shown!

Thanks for participating in my very first Quilt-Along!

I absolutely love my quilt!!!

Jen Kingwell’s fabric is perfect &

Tamara’s quilting is stunning as always!

I know there are more of you sewing but not showing and that’s OK,

but it sure is fun watching your quilts grow a block or 2 at a time.

I decided to draw the old fashioned way,

with slips of paper with everyone’s names

& I decided to draw from my Michigan souvenir!

According to the Shedd’s happy elf,

the winner is:

I know where you live & work Karen so I can deliver!

Just let me know if the BOO pattern is OK or if you’d rather have a different $10 pattern.

There are many to choose from on my website.

Thanks again to all of you Dresden Quilt Workshop Sampler quilters!

I appreciate your support!

To participate, you’ll need to:

Just show us your Dresden Quilt Workshop Sampler pieces Week #1-Week #6 completed.

That’s it!

If you’ve not already become a member of Dresden Quilt Workshop click & go now.

For those of you who are already caught up,

you’ll just need to comment on the post I’ll be drafting over there.

What’s the loot, you ask?

One of my BOO patterns,

A single-finger pump bottle of Mary Ellen’s Best Press

& A Dip & Dab Roxanne Glue-Baste-It.

If you already have one of my Boo patterns, another pattern will be substituted.

In case you have a bit of catching up to do…

Hi Quilting friends,

The lucky winner of the Jen Kingwell fat 1/8th bundle of Looking Forward

is #2.

Loraine Jarman Says:

You use the single finger pump bottle because it allows a very fine spray that will evenly coat but no saturate small fabric pieces.

This is correct!

Mary Ellen’s Best Press is the best for my little Dresden plates and all of my quilting cottons.

Now Loraine will have to decide what to do with the lovely fat 1/8th bundle

because she already bought a kit from me to make Dresden Quilt Workshop Sampler with.

What a tragedy!

Maybe she’ll make 2 versions?

If you know Loraine, she’ll have it made into something in no time at all

& have her own wheelbarrow full of scraps.

If you still need a kit for the Quilt-Along I have them available on my website.

Thanks Moda for the lovely fabrics for the give-away!

Lissa Alexander actually gave me 2 bundles, so watch for another give-away.

I’ll be bringing you more Dresden Quilt Workshop Quilt-Along prepping ideas soon.

Just Keep Sewing…

Quilting friends,

Have you left me a comment for a chance to win the fat 1/8th bundle

that I mentioned in my last post?

These lovelies will go to a lucky winner tomorrow!

It could be you maybe…

You could soon be filling your own wheelbarrow!

Disclaimer*** wheelbarrow not included.

You’ll have to find your own!

See you tomorrow.

It’s less than 3 weeks until the start of my

Dresden Quilt Workshop Quilt-Along

…..Challenge…..

Are you getting ready?

I have some friends that are anxious to start.

Are you?

If you already have your fabrics you could start now by spraying

& ironing all of them with Mary Ellen’s Best Press.

If you look in Dresden Quilt Workshop, pages 9 & 12,

you’ll see why I love it & how I use it.

Next, if you’re using the same fabrics as I did, Jen Kingwell’s Circulus & Lollies Sweet,

(I still have a limited number of fabric kits available on my website)

I suggest you cut a 3″ strip of each of the stripe fabrics.

I did this when I started my quilt and then hung each of them by a tiny hanger so that I could see each of the stripe prints.

I didn’t want to keep using the same print over & over and neglect others.

There are 48 different stripes!

I just happen to have these tiny hangers on the notions page of my website.

I’m all about having fun while I quilt… and a little bit of organization goes a long way!

That should keep you busy for a while

& you’ll become more familiar with all of your fabrics too.

And, you’ll be able to use the 3″ strips in your final border,

so don’t think it’s a waste of fabric.

It’s a win-win!!! Trust me!

And now, would you like to participate in a give-away?

A fabric give-away?

A Moda Fabric give-away?

These are fat 1/8’s (9″ x  22″).

The very talented Lissa Alexander of Moda sent these for me to share with you!

It’s Jen Kingwell’s newest line, Looking Forward, by Moda Fabrics.

Perhaps you’d like to add to this bundle & make a Dresden Quilt Workshop sampler with us?

To be eligible for a chance to win the fat 1/8 bundle,

go to the top of this page

& leave a comment answering one of the reasons or ways that I use Mary Ellen’s Best Press.

(Remember I mentioned above that the info is on pages 9 & 12 in Dresden Quilt Workshop.)

If you don’t have a copy of the book, go get one!

They’re on my website if you local shop doesn’t have them.

I will give you time to comment

at the top of this page!

The drawing will be next week, Wednesday morning.

Go gather!
