October 29, 2012, 13:19 pm  Posted by Lark

Headed to Quilt Festival this year….or just wishing you were? With a new little lady in my life (three-month-old baby Ruby), I’ll be staying put. But my fall doesn’t really feel the same without Quilt Festival’s wonderful mix of inspiration, energy, ideas, and retail therapy. Whether you’re making the trek to Houston or admiring the festivities from afar, join us for a little Quilt Festival celebration with a giveaway of four of our recent (and most favorite!) quilting books.

Enter for a chance to win one of three amazing quilt book prize packs. Simply leave a comment on this post by 9 p.m. EST on Friday, November 2. Any comment is fine, but we’d love to hear about your next quilting project or a quilting project you’d like to make someday. Three winners will be selected at random from among all eligible entries and notified by Monday, November 5th. Click here for the official rules.

Thanks so much for commenting! This giveaway is now closed. The winners have been selected and will be contacted shortly!

    I’m just learning to quilt so I’m starting small by hand sewing/quilting some pot holders using hexagons. I’ll work my way up to large quilts.

    I love art quilts!

    tracy_a says:

    Next up – a quilt for my son’s bed – I need to work on something not-too-young, because it may take a while!

    Giddy Stokes says:

    I WISH I was piecing a quilt, but work travel is crazy-hectic right now, SO… I’m making hexagons while in airports, planes or hotels. Not sure what I’ll do with them just yet!

    Maria Johnson says:

    I’m currently working on three quilting projects — one in aqua/orange, a polaroid block quilt, and a third one that needs reworking because I don’t like how it turned out originally. :)

    Beth T. says:

    My projects cover a bit of everything. I’m trying my hand at art quilting and working baby quilts. I’m combining a current interest with a pressing need and am experimenting with modern-style baby quilts. I hope the moms will like them as much as I do.

    Sharon says:

    My next quilt project is full of fanciful sugar skull material I’ve been collecting. I haven’t decided on a pattern yet but I know I’ll come across the perfect one soon.

    Jennie P. says:

    I’d love to win the Shape Workshop book! It looks great! A quilting project I’d love to tackle someday is a quilt made of nothing but hexagons. I just don’t have the confidence yet to do it.

    Allison C says:

    I’m making a helix quilt with lots of HSTs or my mother-in-laws Christmas gift. I really want to check out that Shape workshop book!

    As my workload lightens, I look forward to starting a quilting project again. Thank you for your generous giveaway.

    Anna banana says:

    Trying to finish up some UFO’s and making a Christmas table topper quilt for my friend for Christmas that includes a sashiko medallion. These books would inspire some new projects for the new year!

    Vicki T says:

    Oh gosh, I have an entire list of quilts I want to make. First however, will be to make my husband a quilt I’ve had in my mind for about two years now and then a quilt for each of my Grandchildren. After that I’d like to make each of our boys quilts also.
    Then I get to start on my list of quilts I want to make ‘some day’.

    PS. the new way of leaving comments is confusing because there is nowhere to enter a way for you to contact us without signing up for that Disqus thing or leaving the email in our comment itself which is then subject to spam. So far the spammers aren’t stealing those typed the way I have done mine but it wouldn’t surprise me if they didn’t figure out a way to do that soon. lol This might be a reason why there is a drop in people leaving comments because it’s confusing and others I’ve seen are having a hard time using the Disqus thing as have I. I thought you’d like to know this.

    Melissa Graham says:

    I would love to make each of my children a quilt. Right now I am getting ready to start some Christmas ornaments.

    Carrie P. says:

    thanks for the giveaway. I am going to make a little quilt with a partridge in a pear tree for Christmas.

    Kagan Bec says:

    I have a very long quilt list, but until Christmas will be 100% knitting. WIP is a king-sized (?!what was I thinking!?) quilt featuring embroidery. I plan to use the quilt-as-you-go method (if I can figure it out) so I can quilt that beast with my own little Bernina. Wish me luck!

    Carmen Nuland says:

    My next quilting project is to replace the batting and back of our wedding quilt – after 17 years it’s falling apart!

    Louise Wackerman says:

    that holiday book looks really cool! My next quilting project is a mini quilt, rainbow, for a quilt swap!

    Susan Hahaj says:

    I have several unfinished projects that this reminds me to get busy on! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I would love a book package! My next project is to finish a paper pieced wall hanging I started about 2 years ago! Thanks

    My next quilt project is for my granddaughter’s birthday in November. A nice quilted pillow for her bed, I think.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Patricia says:

    I’m just learning to quilt. I have a fall runner, a cardinal lap quilt and a Dresden Plate pattern — all in the works between now and Christmas. I would really like to win one of the quilt sets. Thank you for making this giveaway available.

    laurie says:

    Right now it’s Christmas ornaments, but I am still working out how to do hubby’s B&W quilt.

    First of all, thanks for this opportunity! I’m hoping I will be able to accomplish all I have planned before Christmas – 3 twin size/1 for ea. grandson, 4 table runners, Christmas Flag quilt, 2 church banners and a partridge in a pear tree!! ha ha ha – the “Shape Workshop” sure looks nice.

    [...] There’s just one more day left to win a HUGE collection of quilting books! [...]

    I help to make quilts for foster care children every thursday night. I also occasionally visit world relief quilters to help them tie quilts. The Quilt it with Love book would be of interest to me for the foster children quilts :)

    Christmas Table Runners are my go to project this time of year. :>

    linda says:

    Jodi D says:

    I just started a little english paper piecing, and going to WI to sew or with some of my family is weekend!

    working on a Dr Seuss MAX quilt for friends who lost their dog Max this year.

    Janis Baker says:

    I’ve always wanted to learn how to quilt. I have a hand-made quilt from my grandmother that was made for my mom and will be passed onto my son and then my granddaughter.

    usairdoll says:

    I have several projects going, one is a small quilt for my grandson. He’s at the stage where he likes a soft blanket so I’m putting minkie on the back.

    Thank you for an awesome giveaway and a chance to win.


    kelly o! says:

    Fabulous giveaway — thanks for a chance to win!

    My next project is to finish up several of my current projects! lol I’ve had a rainbow-blocks quilt on the design wall for ages now, and it really needs to be finished up. Just have to decide how big to make it (the blocks are done, just need to add the white to bring it to a size. Wall hanging? Lap throw? Twin? Bed Runner?)

    cwoodquilter says:

    I would love to win books! I need inspiration for holiday gifts. Right now I’m starting to work on some selvage edge pincushions for friends.

    jenellejb says:

    I just started working on a Christmas table runner yesterday.

    Ann says:

    I’m currently working on quilted Christmas stockings for my grandchildren.


    Marty says:

    I am working on what I think is an unusual quilt… mostly plaid!

    us gram says:

    I have material cut out to make table runners for my nieces……..one day they will get done.
    Many thanks to my friend Rhoda for getting me interested in quilting. She has taught me that plaids and stripes do go together….
    If I won the books I would share them with her.

    I want to make an applique quilt. All I have made up until now are patchwork quilts, plus a yo-yo quilt in progress.
