Hooray It's Giveaway Day!!!!

I have to admit, Giveaway Day almost slipped up on me!


Thanks so much to Sew Mama Sew 
for sponsoring this fun blog hop once again!

I am so happy to join in on the fun!
And you will be too when you see what I'm giving away :)


How about a really nice copy of Volume 4 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks?  These are SO HARD to find once they are off the shelves!   Volume 4 came out in Winter of 2011, and the only copy I found online was digital.  Somehow, I ended up with two copies of this one (and none of some of the others - that's how it goes sometimes, right?).  This copy is in great condition, very clean, unread, and all patterns are intact :)

If you're not familiar with the 100 Blocks issues, they come out about twice a year, and they contain 100 original blocks by some of the most exciting designers out there today!  This issue has blocks by Bonnie Hunter, Crabapple Hill, Kaffe Fassett, Kim Diehl, Weeks Ringle & Bill Kerr, Jan Krentz, Pam Kitty Morning, Camille Roskelley, Denise Russart - and so many more!


The upper right block in this photo is Bonnie Hunter's block, and look at that adorable Lil' Monkey block by Sonja Callaghan!

Here's a closer pic of some of the others that are shown on the front cover....


I'd love to share my bounty with you, so if you'd like to win, just leave me a comment on this post telling me which quilting magazine is your current favorite.  I have to admit, I love Quiltmaker!  I also usually enjoy McCalls, especially their Christmas issue :)

No hoops to jump through to win!  You don't have to follow, but if you are a follower, thank you!  You may leave a second message letting me know that you follow, and I'll put your name in for a second chance to win!  Now, remember - I MUST have an email address in order to award the winner.  This giveaway is open to both domestic and international readers, and I will keep it open until midnight Friday, December 12, 2014.

BEFORE YOU GO .... you might like to see what I've been working on lately :)  I'd love to have your encouragement and input as I work on these fun projects!

My favorite current project is finishing up my Hootie quilt!


This is a block that I got from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 7, and it is designed by the very talented Shayla Wolf of Sassafras Lane Designs.  I made one of these blocks each month along with the Rainbow Scrap Challege hosted by SoScrappy.  I eventually decided against the gray Hootie in the bottom right - and went with just a little different look for the 9th Hootie - here's a peek....


Today I spent a good part of the day preparing pieces for my newest project, Patchwork of the Crosses - these are my "slow down and relax as I piece by hand" blocks :)  Here are the blocks I have finished ....





And this one is in process....



During my Thanksgiving travel, I picked up a few pieces that I thought might work for this design.  Here are a few of them ...


.... and I think they are going to work very well ....







Oh yes, I'm excited!!!!

I hope you'll come back after you have visited all the other fun blogs during Giveaway Day.  You just never know what we might get up to here at A Quilt and A Prayer =^..^=

Hugs & Blessings!
Teresa

  3. You can count me in on the drawing, it's one of the two issues I'm missing so my fingers are crossed. My favorite magazine is Quiltmaker of course. Love your Patchwork of the Crosses. I just received my template and some paper pieces last week so will be giving them a try soon.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I love your Hooties! They are so cute! Eventually I'm going to work on something similar but I've got to many things in the works at the moment. Thanks for the giveaway, I'm fairly new so I've never seen this issue. So far I definitely love Quiltmaker and McCalls! Their blogs and freebies are awesome!

  97. That issue looks like it has some great blocks in it! I honestly don't read quilting magazines often. Occasionally I will browse the shelves if I find myself in that section of the grocery store, but in general I am an internet girl. I do have an issue or two of Quilty, and I joined AQS so I get their magazine.
