Whirl into Winter Quilt Bloggers Giveaway

Ok, so I have a few things set aside for this giveaway and I'll post the pictures below. Some of the patterns are paper pieced, which I really don't think I'll ever get around to doing. So in your post: 1.- Please tell me which pattern you would like to recieve, and 2.- Tell me about the last quilt you finished and where it went. My last finished quilt was my daughters quilt from the book "Allegro" by Atkinson Designs. You can see the quilt in one of my earlier posts. It is now on my daughter's bed here at home. Very bright and cheerful.


Please do not post before January 1, 2009 as those posts will be deleted. You do not have to have a blog, but you must leave your email so I can contact you should you win. I will mail internationally. I will pick four winners. Good luck to everyone!

I hope I didn't forget anything.

I like all the patterns and actually enjoy paper piecing, but...being a retired teacher, I'd select the schoolhouse one. The last quilt I made was a wall-hanging my daughter wanted as part of her Christmas gift. It turned out nice and she is happy with it. My blog is part of this giveaway,too, so go look there!

ooh ooh! I ADORE the birdhouse one!! I collect birdhouses and it would fit my family room theme! The last quilt I completed was one made from my husbands old flannel shirts! Simple squares backed by red flannel and simply tied! Alas, it somehow disappeared in a state to state move :-( It was SO cuddly!! I miss it.

I like the flag themed pattern.

Hmmmm...not sure which was actually finished last, but I made a sewing mat for a friend, a set of placemats for another (all hand quilted), and a quilt for the little boy I babysit for.

They were all for Christmas so I don't remember which one I finished last!

Jackie said...

I would love to receive any of the patterns but my favorite is School Days! I'm just now piecing my 2nd quilt. My first top is still in flimsy stage as I'm working on my Free Motion skills in order to quilt it myself!

Happy New Year!

I would love to have Born in the USA. My birthday is July 4th so it has a special meaning to me. The last quilt I finished was for my son. He started it when he was 11 and I finished it when he turned 18. He did do 3/4th of the piecing on the top and a great job at that.

Hi Joyce,

The last quilt I finished was just yesterday, actually and it was a modified pattern from my latest quilt magazine. "Walk Around the Block" from Quilters World. It was fun using retro fabrics and easy to assemble.
I love the first pattern shown with the American flag, is that bird houses?
