Did that catch your eye?

I just recieved a copy of the new Holiday Issue of McCall’s quilting December 2009 issue. I was excited to see my quilt made the cover, AGAIN… folded and stacked with designers such as Chloe and Colleen from Toadusew, Sarah and Delores from Homestead Hearth and a dear friend, Gerri Robinson from Planted Seed Designs. And of course much more inside.
I do not know if you know of the MANQUILTER, but he is who quilted this quilt so I thought I would give him a shout out also. Isn’t that a great word, Manquilter? Of course you have to say it in a deep voice for the full effect.
Yes I said giveaway… keep reading.
The gals at McCall’s are so clever. They did a quilt option using the same pattern but did it in 30’s fabrics and used embroidered tea towels as the centers. Just that idea alone is worth running to the store to pick up your own copy. (pg 64)
Also there is an ad on page 49 from moda about something new available in stores late October. Clue- Fanfare Gift Wrap. Check it out.
Here’s the deal. Thanks for reading to the end.
The giveaway is for a magazine and my scraps from this collection. Scraps?! I have good scraps and after all it is a free giveaway. Rounneries will be in stores soon, so once you win my scraps you can order all kinds of yardage from your favorite shop.
I mean run to the stores this group is going to go fast!
Just make a nice comment and you will be entered. Drawing will be September 30th.

    Oh, please, I need those scraps. I LOVE French General and have had an order placed for months for the fabric. I have such plans for the many yards I have ordered. I have not been able to find the magazine as yet. Love your stuff – I want to see your quilt.

  2. Carolyn says:

    Never have I seen such a faithful rendition of French 18thC fabrics for modern use as Kaari has done. Your design for using her fabrics is gorgeous–I can see myself slipping between hemp or linen sheets and pulling up my coverlit made from your quilt!

  3. Carol says:

    I'm looking forward to the next issue of McCall's and your quilt, of course. Scraps are always good, especially if it provides an excuse to purchase more moda fabric.

  4. Erica says:

    Scraps, I love scraps, you can make all kinds of nice things out of scraps and I have some planned… maybe even for the holidays, that is if the magazine gives me some inspiration!
    And I think it will….

  5. Adrianne says:

    Congratulations Covergirl! I actually came over looking for a quilt of yours I had seen before. It was blue and green and for a baby girl in your life. And then I see French General on your latest entry! Wowee. I am having so much fun on your blog tonight. 🙂

  6. Jody says:

    Truly…it's my turn to win something. I covet scraps. And fabric. And notions. And anything Moda….thank you for another fabulous quilt! Amazing work ALL THE TIME!

  7. Lisa says:

    Love this magazine, all the issues, but the Holiday issue is always my favorite!
    I would love to win your scraps and the magazine.
    Congratulations on having a quilt on the cover.
