Welcome to the third day of our Best Weekend Quilts Giveaway. Thanks to all who’ve been following us the past two days while we promote our newest special issue, Best Weekend Quilts 2013! Whether you’re a traditionalist or lean to the more contemporary side of things, you’ll find your perfect weekend project between the covers of Best Weekend. Pick up your copy today and get started this weekend – available now at your local quilt shop, bookstore, newsstand or online at the Quilt and Sew Shop.
There will be two winners in today’s giveaway, so pay close attention!
Maybe you’re more of a pink person, or perhaps your heart belongs to the color orange? Chris Hoover’s Oh Sew Blue uses various prints in a similar colorway and makes for an attractive, eye-catching quilt. Use this as a small throw or a larger wall hanging to compliment the palette in your home.
Using a charm pack of Friendship – Collections for a Cause by Howard Marcus Dunn for Moda, Jen Daly made this homey table runner. Jen used more traditional looking prints, but this little runner would look great using modern prints or solid fabrics as well.
Quick-corner piecing in all the blocks will keep things moving when you make this bright quilt designed and made by Christine Van Buskirk and Susan Emory of Swirly Girls Design. Using their Poppy Love collection for Michael Miller Fabrics, these jazzy prints jump right off the quilt when they’re offset by a white background.
If you love foundation piecing, you’ll enjoy Please Don’t Eat the Daisies designed by QN’s art director Susan Geddes. These easy-to-piece blocks and large patches make this whimsical pattern a treat and a breeze.
One lucky winner will receive a bundle of Collections for a Cause, The Mill Book Series Circa 1835, by Howard Marcus for Moda and a copy of Best Weekend Quilts 2013, while the other (just as lucky) winner will get a bundle of Pleasant Hill by Kansas Trouble Quilters for Moda and a copy of Best Weekend.
To enter to win one of these bundles and magazines, leave a comment on this post by midnight mountain time tonight – Wednesday, May 22nd. One comment per person please, open to those who haven’t won anything from Quilters Newsletter in the last 90 days.
