Quilters' Blog Hop Party and Give-Away Day!

Oh I love Quilters Blog Hop Party and Give-Away Day! I have been saving up something super special to give away today! 



I have two copies of Modern Patchwork 2013 Spring Magazine that I am pairing with three fat quarters from Freespirit: one each from the new Botanical, True Colors by Joel Dewberry and Designer Essentials Solids collections. 

This issue of Modern Patchwork is out of stock but never fear, I have two copies that I am willing to part with. It has so many great projects you won't know which one to make first! For me it is a toss-up between Alyssa Lichner's 'retro rubies wall hanging' and Jacquie Gering's 'lava lamp revisited' quilt. 



Please leave me a comment with your favorite solid color to quilt with and why, your name and contact information (if it isn't connected to your profile) and I will draw two winners on Tuesday November 26th by 9pm PST. Thanks for visiting! Good luck! Happy Hopping!

Visit the blog hop party for a gazillion other fun give-aways by clicking the image below.

    ReplyDelete

  29. I use Kona medium gray and white a lot. I use them because I tend to use a lot of bright bold colors and they pair well with them. I buy Kona white by the bolt I use it so much. Thanks for the chance!

  103. One??? Oh my, it seems I have a color of the moment crisis. When I look at my unfinished tops, I do see a lot of green so I must be drawn more strongly to green...Okay, I'll say GREEN! Nope, too late to change it...don't backspace... let it be I tell you! Okay, green it is. BTW, it's slightly evil of you to tease us with the possibilities of what you can make in the magazine...I think I like you :) .... oh my, way too much coffee already this morning.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I most often quilt with kona snow or some form of gray. I use them as background fabrics on most of my quilts is the why.

    ReplyDelete
  105. You know I have not worked in solids- lots of tone on tone but not solids- how fun it would be to win this magazine- I am a more traditional quilter so it is great to go outside my comfort zone.

So funny because my favorite color is red, and I do love red fabrics, but whenever I go to choose any fabrics it's always the turquoise ones that I go to first. I've never really appreciated orange much, but for some reason just love it now with turquoise.
    Thanks for participating in the blog hop.
