Surprise Giveaway!

(Note: PFAFF Tutorial Tuesday will follow this post!)

Imagine my surprise as I opened the Priority Mail envelope to two issues of Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, the newest spin-off issue from the 100 Blocks issues. I was stumped as to why I received them.


 I opened the cover and there was my answer! My applique block, called Bertrand's Arrows, seen in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Vol. 3, was re-created into a quilting motif in Tutti-Frutti, a quilt designed by Jacquelynne Steves, shown on pages 18-21.

Jacquelynne combined her block, Neapolitan, from 100 Blocks, Vol. 4, with a solid white block where she included my block's outline as a quilting motif.

The Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks issue has 19 different quilt patterns and a bonus of 7 table runner patterns. It's packed full of great ideas.

So because I now have two issues, and really only need one for myself, I'm giving away the second issue to a lucky winner! Here's what you'll do to enter this giveaway . . .

If you have a Blogger ID: Simply leave a comment on this blog letting me know what sewing project you're currently working on or one you're interested to try. This can be any sewing project!

If you do not have a Blogger ID (and your comment will post as "Anonymous"): I would still love to hear what sewing project you're working on or interested in trying, but you'll have to copy your comment and paste it into an email. Send your message to me with your full name. If you win, I will know who the winner is and can easily email you for your mailing address. You can send your comment to: info at suzguzdesigns dot com.

This giveaway ends at midnight, Mountain Time, Monday, March 11th. I will announce the winner in next week's PFAFF Tutorial Tuesday, on Tuesday, March 12th.

I look forward to reading what everyone is up to!

Good luck!

Great surprise, I have collected all the quiltmaker block magazines. I really want to make the Windy Way quilt, wish I had an Accuquilt Baby Go to help with cutting all those curvy blocks. Thanks for the giveaway.

I am currently working on two of my first quilts ever... :) and this makes me so happy!! The first will be for my mom and the second is for my grandmother. They will both be shocked as i've never expressed interest in sewing before.

The next project I'd like to tackle is sewing a pair of heavy drapes.

Great Giveaway, thanks for sharing. I am working on a UFO that has been hanging around FOREVER, it is orange peel blocks out of shirtings and weavers cloth to applique the peels on :) Turning out nice, making a little dent in it. I think I have enough peels for 12 blocks and I want 30 blocks so a ways to go yet.

What a lovely surprise for you and how generous you are to share the wealth. I am currently working on a quilt for a challenge (using a tea towel.) Right now, it's just a bunch of bits and pieces, but I'm hopeful that it will become a top by the end of the week.

How many WIP's should I list???

My most active WIP is "Yours Truly" designed by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. I've done all the applique by hand (9 blocks + borders) & now I'm hand-quilting it. I'm working on the 7th block of quilting.... so just 2 1/2 more blocks + borders & it'll be done.

My second-most active WIP is "Vintage Valentine" by Verna Mosq----something. :) I've wanted to make it for YEARS and now I'm almost done with the applique! Soon(???) it will be done and on display in my home.
