The Giveaway Quilt

stay tuned for the outcome, comments are closed, thanks  to everyone that entered.

When last I rambled about what quilt I would be offering in this giveaway, I think I left off at Plan D.

I’ve decided to go with Plan E.  A quilt that is already quilted and finished.


This quilt was originally purchased by my Grandmother. It was one of those “hand-quilted” things that was pretty badly hand quilted. She let me have it, I took it apart, and then requilted it with a new backing.  I can’t remember the exact dimensions, but I think it fits a FULL size bed.

For a number of reasons, she does not need it any longer.  In fact, it’s been quilted since April 2006, sitting in a pile waiting to for the binding to be finished every since. So it’s not like I’m taking quilts off of people who are going to be cold.  It doesn’t really suit the style of my husband or children, though they don’t seem to scruple too much over which quilt they DO grab.

Nearly all of the hearts are quilted differently. I’ve uploaded a gob of pictures to my Flickr account:

If you commented on the Housewarming Party post, you are already entered.  If you haven’t entered, you can comment there or here.  If you comment here ALSO, I will only enter you in the drawing once.


I know you don’t like to hurt your chances of winning, but if you could post about this on your OWN blog,  I’ll enter your name another FIVE times, just leave me a link to your blog.

I’ll have the boys help me draw a name on FRIDAY, February 6th, around 4PM CST.

Due to the downtime issues my blog has experienced this week, I’m extending the deadline until MONDAY, February 9th, around 4PM CST.  But that’s it.  I really will do the drawing that day.

You won’t hurt my feelings if you don’t keep the quilt.  Maybe you have a granddaughter that needs a quilt, or maybe you’d like to pass it on to a worthy charity.  Maybe you are a beginning machine quilter that would be interested in having this for some ideas and reference.

I do have to warn you that I have to finish binding it before I can send it to you…I promise to get to it as soon as I can.  I have to finish binding the Daisy quilt first…

Good luck!

    Lovely quilt and great inspiration for someone who has your book.
    No blog, but thanks for the chance to win this. I wouldn’t even mind finishing the binding.
    Thank you.

    That is a beautiful quilt and I’d love to have it. Even though I quilt, there is not a single bed in our home that HAS a homemade quilt…I am nearly ashamed to admit. So…it would be terrific for me to win this…it really would! I found you from Barb at Bejeweled Quilt’s blog, in case you are keeping track.

    [This isn’t an entry]: Just wanted to say that I just saw that the contest winner was going to be picked at 4pm CST…I mistakenly thought it ended on the 6th & missed the time cut-off. Still, it’s a very nice quilt – thanks for the giveaway! 🙂
