Pattern Give Away!

Those of you who frequent my blog know that I've been making Touch of Vegas secretly for my son's Christmas present. Boy has it been a challenge to find the time to work on it while he is away and it still isn't completely bound.








Since it is a busy quilt I felt that simple swirls was the best design. Besides that, when he saw Rebecca's quilt that I quilted for her earlier in the year in commented he liked the swirls.




This quilt is different for me for sure! I love the texture of the quilting. A few commented that I must have saved white and black prints for quite awhile. I chuckle; not so! I had to make a point to purchase these all in one shopping trip at the mega fabric store called, Mary Jo's. I had nothing in my stash to make this quilt besides a few of the reds. I want to thank Carol and Bonnie for sending me some of their white/red print scraps to use as well.




The designer is Debbie Allen and she not only sent me this pattern to giveaway but another as well. I'd like to have the winner's patterns out in the mail by Tuesday. If your interested in winning these patterns please comment before Sunday. I'll email the winner. Do you follow me? I'd love if you would.



Another thing I just have to share with you is this post from Kim. I didn't see it when she originally posted and I've been chuckling ever since. If you haven't been to her blog than you are in for a real treat as you read through her many post. I think she post just about every evening and with plenty of humor to boot! I often tell her that a book should be published about her blog. That good!

Cheryl said...

Thank you for the link to Kim's post...what a hoot! Still laughing. The swirls on your son's quilt are the perfect choice...cosmic, in a way.

Janet O. said...

I don't need the patterns, they are lovely, but would just distract me further from my "have to" projects. I just wanted to say that I love the swirl quilting on this quilt. Perfect complement to the sharp, angular design of the piecing.

Shelley said...

Oh Mary, I love the Star Chains! Your son is going to love his quilt!

As for Kim's blog, I can still see Grampa running to do mouth-to-mouth on "Louise"! LOL! Wish I was closer, I love to bind and I'm quick at it. People get me to bind for them all the time!

Litamora's Quilt & Design said...

Enjoy the rest of the week, and happy sewing :o)

Janet said...

Ever since I saw this quilt on your blog I have started collecting fabrics for this quilt. I really think it is beautiful. The way you quilted this quilt brings it alive.

smkellytx@gmail.com said...

Love the quilt and the swirls. It gives the quilt motion. Have been reading about the progress on it and really like the pattern. Great colors....your son will love it!

Karen said...

The swirls are perfect for the quilt. Boy, will your son be surprised. Mary Jo's always had a lot of the black and white prints any time I shopped there. A good place to make the purchase. I hope you will post a picture of it on your son's bed after he receives it.

Becky said...

Thanks for the link to Kim's blog! Looks like one that I will enjoy. Your Touch of Vegas is stunning. I agree with your son. Swirls is one of my favorite quilting patterns. It would be interesting to see what colors other folks choose for their Touch of Vegas quilt. Merry Christmas!

Needled Mom said...

It looks stunning, Mary!!! I just love the fabrics you used in it.

Loretta said...

I love your quilt!! and would really like a chance to win this pattern. Several years ago, I made a red, black & white quilt, using a Debbie Caffrey mystery pattern, and this is one of my favorite combinations.
Thanks for the chance.

Your quilt is just so lovely! I would love having the pattern. I've collected black and white fabrics for awhile and perhaps could get by without purchasing any new fabric.

I read that post by Kim and it's hilarious. She usually has humorous postings but that one was definitely laughing out loud funny!

Sherrill said...

I have been drooling over your son's quilt and was gonna ask what the pattern was. So glad you're giving it away..thanks for the chance.

My daughter gave me lots of black and whites with hot pink as a contrasting fabric last Christmas. I couldn't find just the right pattern though I looked and looked. I absolutely know that the 'Touch of Vegas' pattern would be the perfect one. Thanks for the chance to win one.

Thanks for the chance to win!! It's great to see the quilt come to life in your posts. I've always liked red, white and black quilts. Isn't Maryjo's fun?!? Wish I lived a little closer, but I do get to stop by there when I'm driving from here in Georgia to my sister's in Virginia Beach.
