Giving Thanks

Just in time for fall and Thanksgiving, I thought a give-away would be nice.  After all, I am so grateful for all of you and the sewing community here in blogville and Flickr.  I have made so many friends!!!  (Oh, incidentally, I am posting this and the pic of the giveaway at the same time, if you can believe???.  For a change, you are not seeing things 2-3 days later.  LOL)  Anyway, I wasn't sure what you might like, but thought maybe a quilt front, back and binding might be nice.  Sooooo, if you want to win this Batik Beauty (48 x 65 1/2 inches), fancy back (4 inches bigger than the front all the way around) and scrappy binding, just tell me why you would like to win.  Please don't forget your e-mail address so I can contact you for mailing info. if you get lucky.

Batik Beauty

Batik Back

Scrappy Binding

Believe me that everything is straight. The wind was blowing when we were taking pics. Also, I have the tops labeled for your convenience and that's what the white thing is on the tops of both. LOL The winner will drawn by a random drawing next Friday, November 20th. Good luck!!!

Oh Carol, this quilt is pretty. I would love anything from you. It is funny how batiks get a bad rap on Flickr. I have been to many sights and people all say they are against batiks. I am not sure why, but I think they consider themselves "modern" and batiks are not. I really don't get it because the colors that batiks bring are potentially so much brighter than some prints. Also, the subtleties in the batiks lend themselves to blending better. Well, enough said.. I would love anything you make and am looking forward to when the hubby leaves for your next madness. That small squared quilt you made is glorious.... mamamary2.. maryperrine@yahoo.com

pklaw said...

What a generous and beautiful giveaway! Don't we all have so much to be thankful for! I think that if I won this beauty I would have to find someone to pass it on to (once I quilt it, of course!) My mother just received her second clean scan after undergoing chemo for lung cancer - I would love to give it to her as a celebration gift! I am very thankful that she is doing so much better!

I love batik. The way the colors play together is beatiful.
I would love to win this kit to complete for my mother as a holiday gift. She would love the earthy beauty of the fabrics. It would be a cherished lap quilt.

Jenny said...

I would be so thrilled to win your lovely quilt top and all to finish and gift for Christmas. This quilt promises to be the best housewarming/Christmas gift I could give to my best friend of 28 years! ... since we were 8! Thanks for the chance.

Lollydo said...

Dear Carol,
I agree, we all have so much too be thankful for .. new friends from flickr and blogville and two things that I have enjoyed more than I thought possible. I have learned much and hope I have given in return. Being thankful is a choice we all make everyday, thankful for friends, homes, incomes, freedoms, families the list is endless. your quilt is beautiful and I love it, but more than that I am thankful for the reminder to be thankful!

Debbie said...

Hi Carol,
I just found your blog last week, and I am amazed at the beauty of your quilts. I'm in awe of your work. You are a great artist! I would love to win one of your quilts.
Happy Holidays to You and Your Family.

Leah said...

I too am quite new to Flickr and like you I need to co-ordinate my blog with it!!

Winning this quilt would give me the incentive to get co-ordinated.

I have a Jelly Roll of purpley batiks that I'm going to make into a similar pattern to yours.

Sibyl said...

Carol your work is just beautiful. I have followed you here,and also on SewForum. I can tell that your work is truly from your heart. Would love to be considered for your work. Thanks for the give-a-way

carol said...

Ladies, please don't forget to leave me your e-mail address. I'd hate to have you win and not be able to get ahold of you.

henny said...

Hi Carol,
Thanks for your generousity :)
I'd love to win this pretty batik, because I just LOVE batik. I'm from Indonesia where the real traditional batik comes from. I want to feel the texture and see what the difference between your batik and mine :D

hennya_here@yahoo.co.id

Cole's Corner said...

A give away of that magnitude! You are talented and generous! I would love to win because I adore your work! Every post on here and sewforum brings a smile to my face and inspires me to try new things.

Oh pick me, pick me, random drawing thingy!

kaiolohiakids said...

Wow-what a generous giveaway! I love batiks, too, no matter what everyone says! I'd love to finish this up for my daughter!

Anya said...

very pretty! I'd like to win because it would make a great charity quilt -- perhaps a Project Linus for a teenager...thanks for the chance!

Lauren said...

Very beautiful! I want to win because it's gorgeous, of course, but also because I always seem to be making quilts for other people and never for myself. This one I would definitely keep for myself!

silversmith said...

it's such a lovely quilt! i love batik and this one shows off the designs beautifully. i also love the few red stripes along with the dark blue mixed into the neutrals. i think if i were to win this quilt top, backing, etc. i would finish it for a Quilt of Valor and give it to our war wounded. the red and blue say "patriotic" without being too much.

Heather said...

Wow, this quilt is gorgeous!! And the back is so cute! It's definately a 2 in 1 quilt!
This quilt would match the colors in my new house. I am moving on Dec 22, so it would make a great housewarming gift to be used in my new living room, and it would also make a perfect Christmas gift, to me, teehee!
Thanks for the generous giveaway! :-)

Hi Carol: what a generous giveaway. If I was lucky enough to win this, I'd put the quilt together and give it away to the right person -- maybe to the children's hospital. thanks for the chance to win. I'm at strings@mts.net

ladmquilter said...

I love batiks this quilt is gorgeous I would give it to my aunt for christmas it would match her house. Thanks for the chance.

beth said...

I sure had fun reading your blog today!! It's my first visit and I smiled the whole time! thank you! you're an inspiration!

Di~ said...

Wow, generous is right! AmandaJean said so...:) I am a huge fan of Batiks, plus the pattern is so so simple BUT effective! Thanks! Love the gold binding too...

janet.salonen said...

I am a new quilter with 2 young children. A combination that doesn't work well when you have a house you would love to decorate with some beautiful quilts and are very impatient waiting for the time to finish some WIP's. Winning a beautiful quilt such as yours would be so wonderful. Thanks so much for your generosity.

amber said...

what a great giveaway! i've been making christmas gifts this year and it's hard work! this beautiful quilt would check another family member off my list!! thanks for the chance :)

crazyqsis said...

I would love to win your giveaway so I could quilt this piece and give it too my Grandma she will be 90 this year It would really cheer her room up. melisa

Annie of Blue Gables said...

Amandajean sent me here. I am so amazed at the quilty blog world. The people I have met here are absolutely the most talented and generous group of people.
Your quilt is so beautiful. I am thinking I would love something like this in my living room. When hubby gets up in the night because of his back, he sometimes sleeps on the floor of the living room. He is using an old tattered double wedding ring quilt that I keep trying to figure out how to restore. Once in a while I find a piece from DWR that has been dislodged because of her frailty.
If I were chosen, I think I would put it in DWR's place and hide the old one so I can restore her some day.
Thank you for such a sweet and generous give away. You are such a talented lady.

Lotta said...

Hi,
I'd love to win that quilt! I've always wanted to make a batik quilt but I never seem to get enough fabric to do it.
Please, pick me,
Lotta in Sweden

foodmathquilts said...

What a beautiful quilt top! I'm in the middle of finishing a quilt for my mom (her only one, sitting finished except for quilting for 6 years!) and would love another to practice my new stippling skills. It would look great in my new house or as a possible fundraiser for my school.

Jessica Christensen said...

I don't suppose I have a better reason than anyone else for wanting to win. I love batiks, and there's something so fun about sharing (and being shared with) in the quilting arena. Otherwise it can be a very solitary, hermit-like hobby -- holed up in the sewing room for hours at a time (or days at a time). Your quilt is beautiful. I love the backing -- so fun. It's so sweet of you to be willing to part with so much hard work.

This is a beautiful top! I'd like to win because it would make a great quilt to put on the back of my couch for naps. The colors go great with my furniture.

Annie of Blue Gables said...

PS. Where did you get your blog name? Why is it keep singing this song in my head when I read your blog name?

I would love to win it simply because it is lovely and gorgeous :-)

GloJoeSews said...

Wow, what a generous giveaway! I'm thankful for all the talented, and kind hearted quilt bloggers out there in blogdom!

Leigh said...

I would love to win this! I am a beginning quilter and while I love to admire finished quilts, it would be really cool to see the "innards" of a well made quilt to see how the experts do it!

Ammie said...

Oh, what an amazing giveaway! Why would I like to win? (So MANY reasons!) I love the fabrics and the way the design leads one's eye. I am a complete quilting novice who greatly appreciates help from my talented friends.

ammieloris at hotmail dot com

Anne said...

Love the quilt, the back is gorgeous!! It would look great in my family room, to snuggle under when watching videos.

Tricia said...

What a great giveaway! I would love to win this quilt to give to a friend's daughter. She is 8 and was in an accident back in June. She luckily survived but has yet to speak or do anything on her own. Rehab has been a very slow process. I wanted to make a quilt myself but unfortunately time is lacking with school and work, but quilting and binding should be no problem.

Janet said...

Wow! I am trying not to drool on my keyboard. I Love batiks, and have started cutting strips for just such a design. It is hard to find nice light batiks here. Janet in NY

RPowers said...

That is a beautiful quilt, and such a thoughtful give-a-way! As a young mother I am trying to build my quilt "stash" to hand down to my children/grandchildren someday. I would love to win your lovely quilt.
Kara

Blogful said...

Wow! Hope I win. I might just back that back into a front it's so great! Love this!

Tylynn said...

Oh wow! That is such an incredible thing to do! I love this time of the year, as it brings our the giving in people.
Thank you for sharing your talent!!! I would love to call it my own!

Susan said...

It is so amazingly generous of you to be giving this beautiful quilt away! I love batiks, especially the ones in earth-tone colors. I would quilt this and put it on my brown sofa for my hubby to use when he takes his nap there.

Asiyah said...

I also have much to be thankful for, including this giveaway. I would love to win because I don't have a quilt of my own. I have made quite a few quilts but always as a gift for someone; I think it's time for Mama to have a quilt now.

Trish said...

It's a beautiful quilt. I love the batiks. It would look great in my livingroom.

Rene' said...

What a generous giveaway!!! Your batik fabrics are lovely. Your pieced back looks great too. I am amazed at the generosity I have experienced here in blogland. This is such a wonderful way of saying thank you. Thank YOU.

Jen said...

What a beautiful quilt. I'd love to win, because like others who commented, I'm a new quilter with 3 little ones. My oldest was just diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome and I'm immersed into getting him the help he needs. That, however, doesn't quench my desire for being creative - I just don't have enough time in the day!

jenstoddard at embarqmail dot com

Linda said...

Why I should win? Hmmm. There are probably lots of deserving people out there! But I would defintely be one of the most appreciative ones... Because I am a crafter myself I know how much thought and effort goes into a quilt like that. Because I've been dreaming about a quilt like this for my son (I would like to make one myself, but sewing is just not my forté. I'm a knitter.) I have a passion for everything homemade.

And lastly,it would be fun if my luck turned: I've only won a bag of apples in my life.

Valerie said...

Oh that is the most beautiful quilt! I am totally not deserving, but I did want to tell you that you're so very generous and I know that beauty is going to make someone so very happy!

Amanda said...

That is a beautiful quilt top & back! I would love to win this- I'm new to quilting, and would love to have this as a piece in my living room until I get the courage to make something this size!

Nancy said...

I would love to win this quilt kit. I would quilt it and donate it to the Shriners Hospital for Children here in St Louis...

What a beauty. Please count me in...

The Retired Mama said...

I am a terrible sewer. I try so hard but I can not make my blocks come out the same size. I am not talking about an intricate design here, just an easy nine patch. They all turn out wonky. (I am so glad that wonky is now popular. Actually maybe I started a trend!) I would love to win a premade quilt top so that I could machine quilt it and see how I do on that part of sewing. I think I can quilt, but it is hard to tell with my wonky squares. My sewing esteem needs a boost so please pick ME. LOL I only wish I were kidding

Bonnie said...

I LOVE this quilt! And what a generous giveaway! I would love to own this quilt because so far I have only made small quilts. I also currently live in an apartment so I can't paint and this would add some MUCH needed color to my home. And Batiks are my very favorite!

Susan said...

How beautiful! I would love to win this. I'm fairly new to quilting, just started this past July and would love to add to my collection...:) My collection is 1 complete quilt, which I just finished last week. If I won your quilt would be loved daily in our living room.

susanpiluk@yahoo.com

Shelly said...

I'd love to win this! Why? Because I'm to cheap to by Batik fabric for myself. LOL!

Ma Val said...

I'd be honored to win this beauty. I'm a relatively new sewer and quilts have always facinated me. A terrific giveaway! Thanks.

What Comes Next? said...

I love batiks, and this quilt top shows them off just beautifully. This quilt would make a lovely throw in my living room. You are so generous! Thanks for the opportunuty to win

EmileeHope said...

Fun a giveaway!! I just found you through Amanda Jean's blog Crazy Mom Quilts. I am trying to learn how to machine quilt, so would love to add this to my pile to try so that I can get lots of practice!

Thanks for the chance to win and Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. I love this time of year, when the Holidays are approaching and we have a reason to take time out of our busy schedules to spend with family and talk about all that we are thankful for. I would like to do this all the time, but a special day for it, makes sure that it actually happens at least once every year!

As far as what I would do with it...not exactly sure, but Christmas is coming so I am guessing it would become a gift!

Nancy Sue said...

Thanks for the opportunity at the give away. We found out that my brother will be visiting this Christmas. Since he has done two tours of duty flying into Iraq, it's nice that he is finally done for good and is able to have his family stay with us for Christmas. We haven't seen each other since 2001:( Needless to say, I'm scrambling with my own UFO's, to provide bedding for 5 people. I could use this as a buffer for my to-do list. Then again, sleeping bags are always fun for kids :) Thanks for getting us into the "Thanks and Giving" mood :)

HobbyGirl said...

This is a great quilt top! I'm hoping to win because I'm just getting started quilting and I want to be able to look at someone else's work and use it as an example. I heard about you from Crazy Mom Quilts too :)

tammiemarie said...

What a generous and beautiful giveaway! I'd love to win this because it would look gorgeous in my living room! selfish, I know. :)

Kate/Massachusetts said...

Oh, this is so lovely! I think if I won this quilt, I would have it quilted and then I would gift it to a raffle to raise money for services for the needy or the food bank in my community. It would have to be a large raffle though! This is such an incredible giveaway! Thank you for the chance to enter your contest! Crazy Mom Quilts sent me!!

I love quilts! This one would be great - my mom wants a drawing at our family Christmas Party, and it would save me lots of time to not have to sew it myself!

Lizzy.Post said...

Helo there!! I am coming to you via "crazy mom quilts"

This is such a beautiful quilt. I love the warms colors. It makes me want to just snuggle under it and watch movies with my hubby and daughter all day! I would LOVE to win this quilt. I have been looking for a quilt or design to go on our bed. We currently occupy the living room of our 1bd room apt, for financial reasons, and this would set a good tone to the room and make it look more polished.

Well, I hope i win!!! lizzy (dot) post @ yahoo (dot) com

Lynn Osborne said...

Wow! What an amazing giveaway! If I won, I would put it on my couch for TV snuggling time! Thanks for the chance to win. lynnosborne[at]verizon[dot]net

Quilt or Dye said...

If I win I will quilt it and then raffle it off for the NAMI Walk in May. What better reason could you have? Let me know at quiltordye@ftml.net

Linda T said...

Why would I love to win? I think I would have so much fun quilting someone else's work. I think I would be quite nervous that I'd mess something up though! I'd probably hand quilt it, since I'd make such a mess of it by machine quilting it! Count me in!

Fun Mama - Deanna said...

This quilt is so beautiful! What a wonderful giveaway.

Q said...

I love your quilt! I would love to win it for our 21st anniversary this week. How cool would it be to win a quilt that you didn't make. I appreciate you offering this wonderful giveaway. Thanks.

The Lawlor's said...

Sweet! It looks perfect to me.

Sara said...

That is a beautiful quilt top...Everyone in my family has a quilt on their bed - except me. I make them for everyone else and forget about myself!

liz taylor said...

Wow, what a great giveaway! I can always use a throw quilt for the couch, this one would match my family room perfectly!

Cheryl said...

why would i like to win it? because i'd take very good care of it and enjoy it over many years.

Annelise said...

What a georgeous quilt. If I am the lucky winner I wil think of the one who made it and enjoy it every time, I'm wrapping it around me on my couch!

I came over from Amandajean. Wow what a giveaway! I would like a chance to win too. How fun for us....how generous of you.

Kim said...

Oh my goodness.....
thanks for the chance to win :0)

Happy Thanksgiving to you :0)
Happy sewing

Kathleen C. said...

Somehow it doesn't feel right to me to enter your generous giveaway; I can make myself more than one quilt from my scraps (I don't buy much new fabric anymore). Nevertheless, here I am writing to you to say that batiks always amaze my eye, with their contemporary look and their connection to cultural traditions. Your quilt is a feast of colors and movement.

I feel connected to many quilters and stitchers via websites, blogs that I visit and a site called stitchfingers.ning. I learn and learn from every photo, tutorial and post that I see. And then I try to practice what I've learned.

This generous giveaway offers a heartfelt connection to you. Your quilt would make me feel as if I were wrapped in a new friendship with you and with all the quilters who I've met and will meet in the future.
Thank you,
Kathleen C.

Last Friday night, there was an auto accident in our community that took the lives of two young men, 20 & 21 years old, and seriously injured two other guys also in the car. The driver was the designated driver, we had a sudden hail storm, and the car went out of control on a turn and hit a tree. My daughter knew all of these guys. They all went to school together. I would like to give this quilt to the mother of one of the boys. She recently lost her husband, too, so is a widow who lost her only son. Too sad. If I win the quilt, it will go to her. Quilts give comfort.

I don't think I'm deserving of this wonderful giveaway. It's a beautiful quilt in progress and you have done a great job on it.

SChalle171 said...

I am new to quilting but it has quickly become an obsession! The quilting and blog community are such generous and creative people. I recently bought a quilt rack for my livingroom and your beautiful quilt will go on that to be handy when I need a bit of comfort. Thanks Sharon

Jill said...

I just love batiks, this would be a wonderful gift for my niece for Christmas! Thanks for your generousity.

bellaandmolly said...

Wow! This is just beautiful. My girlfriend introduced me to batiks a few years ago and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. This quilt really shows the beauty of the batik! Excellent work. I would love to have this and proudly display it in my living room.

Cindy said...

Oh wow! What a beautiful and very generous gift. I would like to win it so I can put it in our guest room. It would make the room soooo much for welcoming and cozy!

this is beautiful! what a lucky winner the person will be.

JVC_Scout_Mom said...

Why I'd like to win? I'd love to add this beauty to my couch. I've had weight loss surgery, and am constantly cold. This quilt would keep me warm (in body) and in spirit (for winning). [Sorry I forgot this on my first post]

Terry Richey said...

Wow, what an awesome talent you have! I am a beginner quilter and absolutely loved the motivation and inspiration your blog provides. Whoever wins this giveway will have a treasure - hope its me!

Tara said...

I would like this beautiful top, backing and binding to practice my machine quilting on. I'm comfortable stippling, but there are other fun options out there that I want to play with!! Thanks so much for the chance to win!!

Deb said...

Wow! I love the quilt! I'd like to win because my mom just moved in with us, and this would be a perfect addition to her room...either at the foot of her bed or thrown over her chair when she gets chilly. Thanks for the chance.

Judy said...

Hey-What a great way to give thanks! I'm grateful for all these tutorials online cuz I've just started quilting and I can get answers anytime of the day or night! It's also so inspiring to see what others have finished and read their blogs! Happy Thanksgiving to ALL! Judy Pa-tootie LJJuda@sbcglobal.net

Jo said...

I would love to win your quilt. I have been working really hard to make a bunch (5) quilts for our church benefit. Yours would put me ahead of the game...

Lisa said...

This quilt is fabulous! I'm certain that I won't win it as there are MANY people on here with very compelling arguments about why you should gift the quilt to them... but I think I'm going to make my own version of it. I love the simple pattern and how it makes the quilt so active-looking. And I am a HUGE fan of batiks. This is an awesome way to use all those fabulous fabrics.

Becky said...

Very pretty! I'd like to win because everyone can use another quilt in their life!

Mama24Monkeys said...

This would make a wonderful additional charity quilt for a local womans and childrens shelter. This year I have been raising pajamas, books and blankets/quilts for them. Thanks for the opportunity with such a generous giveaway.

Susan said...

What a beautiful quilt top and generous giveaway. Thank you!

Alia said...

Hi! I'm Alia. I would love to win this batik beauty because I never win any freakin' thing! I've entered a couple of giveaways and haven't won! I would use it as would my husband and two kids! Good luck to all and it is very generous of you!

Alia said...

Sorry, you asked for an email address. You can find me at: umali666@yahoo.com and you can check out my blog at: www.coffeebeansdailies.blogspot.com. Take care, Alia

Anna said...

What a lovely quilt this is going to make, Carol. Just found your blog via crazymomquilts. Thank you for taking the time to share. I love the backs of your quilts. If I was to be fortunate enough to win this quilt, I too would finish it up and gift it to someone (I'm thinking my brother and his wife who are currently going through some of the toughest times parents could go through - losing their second baby to an untreatable metabolic disorder). I really want to give them something handcrafted but don't know if time is going to permit. Time is so precious. There is so much I am grateful for that I don't know where to begin. God bless, Anna from central WI.

Edige said...

Hello,
I'd like to win because I can't be able to make such a beautiful guilt. I just love nice fabrics and colours... and my daughter need something on the wall... :-)))
Thank you for the chance,
Edit from Hungary

Willeke said...

Absolutely beautiful, I would like to try and win it. Come to think of it I am not sure what I like best, the top or the back...

greetings from The Netherlands!

QuiltChick said...

It's lovely! And would make a good lap quilt for my living room. Colors match my stuff! Wooooo! How very nice of you!

Christy said...

What a pretty quilt! I would like to win because I love, love, love batiks but don't have nearly enough to make a quilt out of them!

Regina said...

Hi Carol! I would love, love, love to win your lovely batik quilt because I think your colors are fantastic and I have a "thing" for batiks right now. Also, I owe a quilt to someone as a Christmas gift and wouldn't it be lovely if I didn't have to start from scratch :)

Eeek!! What an unbelievable giveaway! So generous and so gorgeous. I'd love to win because I might actually get a quilt done in less than 1 year if it was mostly done already...

jennielle9 said...

This is fantastic! I'm glad I found your blog and I'm adding it to my Reader. I'm thankful for learning new quilting skills and would love the opportunity to practice my finishing process with this little package. It's beautiful by the way! You're inspiring me to be more generous!

Chicago Sarah said...

Oooh how lovely- and I just learned how to machine quilt. :)

Alisa said...

Oh my, what a pretty quilt. Wonderful blog. It's going on my blog roll for sure. Thanks for the wonderful give-away.

Wendy B said...

Carol, I've just discovered you at Crazy Mom Quilts blog and thought I'd come and have a look. I've always wanted to work with batiks but have never done so....I'd love to win so I could have a try!!
Thanks for the opportunity.
XX sugary hugs Wendy 'o)

thequiltedcarrot said...

I would love to win this contest. My grandmother is VERY ill, and in a "home." I would love to be able to give her this amazing quilt to cheer her up, as well as keep her warm.

Thank you for hosting such a generous give away.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I think I should win this lovely quilt top, back and binding for two reasons: first, I am just graduating in my machine quilting from wall hangings and baby quilts to larger quilts and this would be a great one to show off what I have learned. Second, I want to give a quilt to my brother-in-law who has cancer and is always cold, and everything I have in fabric is too feminine. This one would be perfect.
Thank you for having this awesome give away.

Wendy said...

I would love to win this quilt because it is so beautiful. I just finished my first quilt, it is small because I was afraid I would not be able to finish a big one. I would like a larger quilt that I can actually use on a cold night while I snuggle with my honey on the couch.
Thank you for offering something so beautiful, I can only dream of a day when I can make something so nice.

Beautiful job! I would love to finish this up and give to my mom whom I just got back in touch with after a 8 year silence! With a baby it's hard to get much done and I've been wanting to do something for her to express my love in a warming way - literally and figuratively.

Thanks for the opportunity! Happy Thanks-giving to you and yours!

Sarah Star said...

To be honest, I would love to win this so I can finally have a snuggle quilt for the couch. No excuses for leaving the blocks to "age" 6 months before putting them together, no whining about having to get a backing together, or not being able to find a good binding. Might sound a bit selfish, but when you either give all of your quilts away or they get "claimed"...a girl needs a quilt! :)
It's beautiful and simple, and batiks are just gorgeous. You're so generous to be giving this away, and hopefully it finds a good home where someone will love it.

This quilt would make a fantastic raffle quilt for RELAY FOR LIFE(American Cancer Society)! Last year I was involved in raising $ and this next year I'd like to do more. I am a machine quilter and would love to choose just the right pattern for it, quilt it, bind it and THEN it would spend the next few months in quilt shops for display while taking in the raffle $ for it!! I'm sure many would want to WIN this raffle quilt!

Howdy Doody from Judy! You must be crazy for giving away such a quilt! I started quilting this yr after losing my 20 yr job working at a land title co that closed its doors. The 1st wk I was off we started quilting at church, then I joined the SE Texas Guild. I am so inspired by reading blogs,seeing pics,reading tutorials & seeing all the donation quilts given to good causes - I never read blogs before! I'm not quite old enough to retire, but learning ways to live frugally is turning out to be more fun than I had imagined it to be. I would love to 'win' your unquilted batik work! My friend has a long arm and it could be a real learning experience for me; then, when finished, true inspiration! The thought is to hang it in my sewing room! Happy Thanksgiving to all! We all have so much to be thankful for! Luvyabye, Judy LJJuda@sbcglobal.net

I have never made a quilt so it should be a great way of making one, letting a pro do almost everything! Winter is really coming along here now so a quilt would be great for me and my baby when it's time for feeding. Or maybe I shouldn't be fooling myself to think it would be finished before the winter has ended considering I've never done it before and most probably would do it by hand? (maanbarn@gmail.com)

Me encanta tu colcha, quiero participar por si me toca regalarsela a mi hija que está embarazada y siempre tiene frio, para que se tape bien con una hermosura como esa.
