And now, we are moving onto the giveaway portion of today–I know you all have been waiting. =)  I seriously want to enter this giveaway myself…it’s a good one!–And it’s all about my favorites.

Of course, the winner of the giveaway will receive a copy of Playful Petals:

Playful Petals Cover

Next up, how about some Moda Fabrics layer cakes?!—Moda fabrics has been and will remain my favorite fabric manufacturer.  15 years ago, I fell in love with a certain Moda fabric designer and spent hours scouring the internet for pieces from one of her lines of fabric.  This was back in the day of dial up internet which meant it was slow going..but, I just fell in love with Moda!

Moda Fabrics has sent me two layer cakes for my giveaway, one of Kate Spain’s new Horizon line of fabric & one of The Jung’s new Pedal Pushers line of fabric.

Layer Cakes

I do a lot of fabric shopping locally but I also love shopping for fabric online.  I reached out to one of my favorite online fabric shops…which I am sure you are all very familiar with..Fat Quarter Shop…and they donated a $50 gift certificate to their shop for my giveaway!
They have recently added some awesome things to their site…Have you all seen the Snapshots Quilt Along yet?–seriously amazing!:
SnapShots Quilt Kit

 Well, I figured why stop with one online shop?..So I reached out to another of my favorite online shops…Fabric Shack.  Fabric Shack has both a great online store and a brick and mortar store which happens to be about 25 minutes from my sister-in-law’s house in Cincinnati.  So, it is a must stop for me whenever we visit.  The thing I love the most about shopping online at Fabric Shack is that they will cut 1/8 yd. cuts of fabric.  For my scrap loving self, this is perfect!  In fact, I bought 1/8 yd. cuts of the complete Up Parasol line from Fabric Shack when I was making my Tiled Blooms quilt:

Tiled Blooms Quilt

Fabric Shack donated a $25 Gift Certificate to their online shop as part of today’s giveaway!

Well, since I don’t do all of my fabric shopping online, I contacted my favorite local quilt shop, Miller’s Dry Goods, to see if they would be interested in donating to my giveaway…and they said yes!–Now you might be thinking that you won’t be able to shop here..but, they also have a wonderful online shop to which they’ve donated a $30 Gift Certificate.

They carry all kinds of goodies..some of my favorites:  The 8 wt. Finca Perle Cotton I am always referencing for hand quilting, Aurifil thread(which everyone in blogland is always referencing), Moda fabrics, Cotton & Steel fabrics, a great selection of solids, and the list goes on.  Plus, you will not find a more accommodating staff!

Plus, they have the prettiest quilting retreat center, The Rural Thimble,  right beside their fabric shop.  Every time I shop there, I am envious of the ladies staying over in that facility–so pretty, newly opened, and just perfect for a group of 10 ladies to get together and sew to their heart’s content.

So, here’s the rundown of the giveaway prizes(a value of nearly $200):

  • Playful Petals Book
  • 2 Moda Layer Cakes
  • $50 Gift Certificate to Fat Quarter Shop
  • $25 Gift Certificate to Fabric Shack
  • $30 Gift Certificate to Miller’s Dry Goods

To Enter the Giveaway: Comments are now Closed

One lucky person will win all of these goodies!  You can enter the giveaway through next Friday, October 3.  Just leave a comment for me below in the comments section with your favorite project from Playful Petals.

  • Congratulations on your book! I love the tiled blooms quilt – it reminds me of looking through a divided window at the flowers outside.

  • I just LOVE the quilt on the front of the book! I’m crazy about scrap quilts and this one is GORGEOUS! Thank you so much for the giveaway!

  • It is tough to choose just one favorite. They have all been wonderful, but I guess I would have to choose Flower Garden with the dramatic black. Scattered Blossoms would be another favorite – great use of scraps. Good luck with the book sales.

  • I love what I’ve seen on the blog hop. Your book is on my wish list. Thanks for the hop.

  • Congrats on such a wonderful blog hop for your new book. I love the mini quilt that Amanda Jean made. I think it would be a great one to start with.

  • I love the pillows, especially today’s. I just moved and can’t wait to make some for my new basement ‘Mom cave!

  • I love the look of petals but I’ve been afraid to try appliqué because I think I won’t be good at it! Your book makes it look so easy. My favorite project is the cover quilt but it was hard to choose. 🙂

  • I love the cover quilt and I love Amanda Jean’s version of it. Thanks for the chance.

  • I just discovered your blog. Although I’m a traditional quilter I’m beginning to love the modern look.


  • Hi! I also just love the cover. I like the idea of bright scraps making this! The more that I work with scraps the more I make versus cutting down on my stash! Still, I have put this project in my to do list! Thank you for the opportunity!

  • I love the Scattered Blossoms as I have a lot of scraps.

  • I’ve enjoyed this book tour so much. Especially seeing some of the variations of quilts in the book. My favorite is Daisy Fields, it reminded me of pineapples. I think this one plus the others of course would be so much fun to make!

  • I love all the projects I’ve seen so far but I really love Tiled Blooms. Thanks so much for the great giveaway!

  • Although it’s hard to pick just one. The Tiled Blooms would have to be the one, but then there’s the cover quilt…and the mini…

  • An entire quilt of appliqué seems like a challenge for me, and I am always up for a challenge. I have a great machine so I don’t have to do it by hand. This is my winter 2014 quilt challenge. I loves seeing all the beautiful projects giving helping me with ideas. Your book is my next purchase, that is, of course, if I don’t win it. Thanks for the chance.

  • My favorite project is the Tiled Blooms quilt, especially with the Heather Bailey fabric that you used for it!

  • How on earth to choose one favorite? I guess I love the pillows and mini made from the cover pattern. They look simple but beautiful. I’ve never done applique though so maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about with the simple. I’d be happy to just win the book!

  • How exciting! I have been reading your book and working toward trying machine applique for the first time. I think my favorite project in the book is Posey Patch, but the first project I will try probably is Rainbow Petals. Tiled Blooms is also on my list. I’m with you on Miller’s and the Fabric Shack — I live between the two and feel very fortunate to have both within driving distance! 🙂

  • The Starflower pattern is amazing!

  • I really like Flower Garden. Love the way the petals make the sashing so unique.

  • I would have to pick Posey Patch from your book. Thanks for the incredible giveaway!

  • I love a good rainbow, so it’s rainbow petals for me!

  • Scattered Blossoms is a beautiful pattern – I would love to try it out but it’s so hard to choose just one!

  • I love Scattered Blossoms. Congrats on the book!

  • I feel so blessed that I have discovered your book and blog, especially in time for this give-a-way! I must buy your book to make the cover quilt – Playful Petals. It looks like something I can manage and I want to try hand quilting as well. I’m beyond excited to begin!

  • This blog hop has been fun to follow and I enjoy seeing how each quilter/sewer has taken each pattern and changed/tweaked it to make it her own. Even the choice of fabric makes for huge changes. I can’t wait to get (maybe win) a copy of the book. I can’t just pick one but if I have to I’d say Amy’s (Diary of a Quilter) mini quilt turned out really cute.

  • I especially love the Daisy Fields pillow. However all of these projects are very beautiful. It would be great to own this book.
