Throw Back Thursday (and a Giveaway!)

GIVE AWAY CLOSED



Lime Twist was my first quilt that made it to the cover of a magazine! It was featured on the Easy Quilts issue in Summer 2014. I now teach this quilt as a workshop and sell the pattern in my shop



Recently, I decided to sew the class sample blocks that I had made into a smaller version. It went together so quickly that I finished it in one day, binding and all!


This is a quilt I could make over and over. I would love to make one with a cheddar sashing. I would also like to use this pattern for a Quilt of Valor. It would be nice in reds and blues with a gold sashing, don't you think? 

Do you have an easy pattern that you like to make over and over? Leave a comment below and I'll draw a winner on the 14th. I will send the lucky winner this pattern and some other fun little surprises. How does that sound?

GIVE AWAY CLOSED


Enjoy every stitch!

Thanks for the opportunity. chocolatewiskers@aol.com

  13. I'm with you!! String quilts make my heart sing and I feel so accomplished with all the variety Besides, my string buckets decrease and it fun to fill them back up again. It is my go to pattern when test sewing for a vintage sewing machine that is all cleaned up and ready to sew again. Thank for the chance to win. Hugs, Allison C.

  14. I really like any type of improv scrappy quilt bock! I've de several and turned them into tote bags, lap quits, pot holders, sewing machine covers and mug rugs. They are mindless sewing for me and so enjoyable. Your quilt looks like a perfect design for me...it's lovely?

  21. I have made Bonnie Hunters Blooming Pineapple pattern SO many times, and it still continues to work. Great way to use up a color with a neutral and its' graphic.

  22. My go to pattern is a scrappy nine patch set with quarter square triangle blocks. It makes a secondary star patten around the nine patches. I've made two for charity quilts and a smaller for a baby quilt.

  23. I have made several tumbler quilts. Except for the cutting, this quilt is quick and easy. Thanks for the chance to win your pattern. I have made several string quilts, but none like your setting.

  26. I have made a lot of quilt, but don't really have a go-to pattern that I've made several times. Your pattern looks like a great one that could be used many times and always have a different look depending on the fabrics used. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy.

  27. I think I make the 3 Dudes Quilt a lot. Easy and stunning results. Also split 9 patches. Jmikebalou (at) aol dot com

  28. I think Lime Twist would make a great Quilt of Valor! I used the pattern from a You tube video called Garden Trellis Quilt Tutorial by Maxie makes to make three Quilts of Valor in less than one month for my family members that served in the military. I made them bigger than the tutorial and changed the large print but kept the same red/white and blue for each quilt. They looked so different and everyone loved them!

  29. I like disapearing 9-patch. Good in lots of sizes.

  31. I love this quilt! I'm newish to quilting so I don't have a "go-to" yet. However I did really enjoy making a basic striped baby quilt- so fast and easy!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I just start sewing my 2.5 in squares together, usually end up with some kind of nine-patch with sashing. This pattern looks really fun and a great way to use up scraps, which I enjoy! Thanks for the chance to win!

  33. I think your idea for a QoV in this pattern would be beautiful! I also love the scrappy log cabin on your blog background. Something like it is definitely on my to-do list!

  34. Love the lime twist, scrappy log cabin is my go to quilt, no pattern required. Thnx for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  35. I don't usually make a pattern over and over, since I like variety, and there are so many beautiful patterns I like to make, but I have learned the advantages of making a tried and true quilt, and some patterns are so versatile and look so different with different fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  36. This looks like a fun design to make more than once... particularly to use up scraps! I haven't ever made any quilt pattern more than once, though the one I'm currently stitching up is from Easy Quilts magazine... and because it is easy... it's sooooo relaxing to sit and stitch on!

  37. I'm in the season of life with young kids where I'm not sewing as much as I like. I'm also very much learning and like to do a different type of project every time I sew...to learn new skills.

  38. I do a strip quilt pattern that I can turn into a chevron or rail or plus sign design. I love versatile squares that can be made quickly. Thanks for hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love this pattern! I really enjoy using many fabrics, so this really catches my eye. I do not have a favorite pattern that I do over and over because I get pretty bored with it after I'm done with the first one. Mine although are all scrappy. thank you for the chance of owning this great pattern.

  42. I pretty much try for a different look every time so I dint have a one I turned to. I have been wanting to try a design like this. It could open up many more options I imagine.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love scrappies so I usually make a different pattern every time. BUT I did a mini class where we made one of Jaybirds hexi quilts and I made 2 mini and making my 3 rd as a large lap quilt.
