Quilters Newsletter Best Christmas Quilts Giveaway!

Quilters Newsletter Best Christmas Quilts 2012 issue is out on newsstands!  It is also available online here.


I have two projects featured in this issue and they are both really fun to sew! Sparkling Ornaments is a fun lap-sized quilt with lots of dimension.  I especially enjoyed adding trim to the ornaments and making three-dimensional berries with tiny yo-yos.  It was quilted by Deborah Norris.

Sparkling Ornaments Quilt




I also designed a Winter Wonderland Table Runner.   Decorating Christmas trees with seed beads added a little extra sparkle!  Plus I used YLI's white pearl metallic thread for the quilting - really a nice product!

Winter Wonderland Table Runner




I used Aurifil thread for the piecing and applique and Warm and Natural batting from the Warm Company for both projects.

Robert Kaufman contributed 16 fun fat quarters comprised of fabrics that I used in both projects to give away!  And you will get a copy of the magazine Quilters Newsletter as well if you win!


Aren't they delicious?

For a chance to win this luscious bundle and a copy of Best Christmas Quilts, leave a comment on this blog post before 11:59 p.m. MDT on Friday, August 24th. I will draw one name at random. One comment per person, please. (Open to those who haven’t won something from Quilters Newsletter in the last 90 days.)  If you post anonymously please be sure you leave a way for me to contact you should you win.  And consider becoming a follower or subscribing to my email feed if you don't already.

For more chances to win other bundles other days check out the Quilters Newsletter blog!

Good luck and happy sewing!
Amanda

I love that you didn't have to use Christmas fabrics for Christmas quilts. Still very festive. I have never heard of the pearl metallic thread and like the look. I'll have to find some at the next quilt show I go to.

Love your Sparkling quilts. And it's true, who says you can't use beads to decorate your runners or quilts! Thanks for the giveaway!

I'm in love! Love the colors, the snowflakes,the shapes the blocks are in. And I love the fabrics! I prefer blenders myself, because they let the designs of the blocks themselves shine through without being boring.
Great job! Thanks for a chance--I'm drooling for the RK fabrics!

I love the Christmas Ornaments quilt and the table runner!! I am now following your blog and you are such an inspiration to me!!! I also love the square dance quilt and would love to have that pattern to do for a charity quilt. We have a 3 week old little girl at our church that had open heart surgery this week and I would love to do this and sell it to help this wonderful family out with expenses!! Keep up the good work!!!

I love the christmas table runner. I am a great fan of table runners or table enhancers. They are quicker to get together and see the finished project than a quilt.

Oh I would enjoy being able to recreate your Winter table runner for myself and even better to have the main supplies provided!

Quilters Newsletter Best Christmas Quilts Giveaway!

28
Quilters Newsletter Best Christmas Quilts 2012 issue is out on newsstands!  It is also available online here.


I have two projects featured in this issue and they are both really fun to sew! Sparkling Ornaments is a fun lap-sized quilt with lots of dimension.  I especially enjoyed adding trim to the ornaments and making three-dimensional berries with tiny yo-yos.  It was quilted by Deborah Norris.

Sparkling Ornaments Quilt




I also designed a Winter Wonderland Table Runner.   Decorating Christmas trees with seed beads added a little extra sparkle!  Plus I used YLI's white pearl metallic thread for the quilting - really a nice product!

Winter Wonderland Table Runner




I used Aurifil thread for the piecing and applique and Warm and Natural batting from the Warm Company for both projects.

Robert Kaufman contributed 16 fun fat quarters comprised of fabrics that I used in both projects to give away!  And you will get a copy of the magazine Quilters Newsletter as well if you win!


Aren't they delicious?
