[Please note: this giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our randomly selected winners Kathy, Roberta, Linda, Jayne and Maricarmen!]
It’s Day 2 of our Best Christmas Quilts 2013 Giveaway and we’ve got more projects to show off and more fabric to give away!
If today’s the first you’re hearing about the Best Christmas Quilts 2013 Giveaway, the way it works is each day this week we’ll feature a few of the patterns that appear in our Best Christmas Quilts 2013 issue, on sale now at your local quilt shop, bookstore, newsstand or online at Quilt and Sew Shop. After the sneak peek, you’ll find prizes towards the end of the blog post. We’ll be selecting multiple winners every day, so you won’t want to miss out!
Jen Daly has made an appearance in several QN issues, her precision and attention to detail shines from each of her projects, and her little Gift-Wrapped Ornaments are no exception. These would be the perfect holiday gift for teachers, neighbors, your next Secret Santa recipient, or some for your own tree at home!
For a nice big, bed-size quilt that’s easy to get together in a snap, Carol Streif’s Snow Much Fun is just for you. Take advantage of quick-corner piecing, die-cut fusible applique and a wide border print for a fresh quilt that’s ready-to-go in no time.
Add an elegant, refined touch to your Christmas decor this year with ZJ Humbach’s Star for a Carpenter tree skirt. Composed of large-scale half-square triangles and sprinkled with gold metallic thread, this tree skirt just might steal the show from your Christmas tree!
If you liked Jen Daly’s little gift boxes up above, you’ll love April Rosenthal’s hand-embroidered packages on the sashing of her Pretty Presents throw. April’s use of bright white sashing and bold-printed shapes give the feel of a Scandinavian-inspired look.
Looking for the next festive table setting for your holiday gathering this year? Then look no further than Bev Getschel’s Here Comes Santa table runner, napkins and placemats. This cheery project is perfect for basic solid colors or your favorite prints of the season.
Within the pages of Best Christmas Quilts 2013 you’ll find an array of stocking stuffers – various gifts we know any quilter would be happy to receive. Among the different books, fabrics and notions is a Honey Passion Pack by Jiggystick. Including three tubes of Jiggystick lip balm, a beeswax moisturizing lotion bar and a 3-ounce jar of honey, these natural products got their start after the founders of Jiggystick began beekeeping as a way to cope with a personal tragedy. Their business has proved to be a positive memorial to a daughter lost too soon. You can order items in gift packs or individually on their website www.Jiggystick.com.
Clearly, this issue has a lot to offer any quilter. Now, time for today’s prizes
