Land of the Free & Pattern Giveaway!!

I've managed to finish this quilt top!! Woo-Hoo!!  The pattern from Piece O Cake called for binding after the applique blocks, but I felt it needed a little more. The blue border is made by Blue Hill fabric, which by the way I love!!  I'm thrilled there is another  manufacturer whose fabric is wonderful to work with. This quilt is machine appliqued.

I first saw this quilt hanging at a quilt show and when I posted in on my blog mentioned how much I love it. Karen at Log Cabin Quilter had started this quilt and offered to pass me the patterns. I think she is very close to finishing her top too. Thank you Karen for your generosity. It's my turn to pass them on. If you'd like to win these please leave a comment and I'll draw a name Saturday morning. There are 12 patterns and each one has the block for the main quilt and another project. Did I mention how much I love this quilt!!!??!!

See this little stack of three quilt tops? That is all that is in the "to quilt" pile!!!!  I've really been trying to stay focused on finishes and no new starts. BUT, I do plan on joining in on Bonnie's mystery quilt which will be posted later this week. I'm hoping to stash bust some oldies and some uglies. I've always admired her mystery quilts but have never did one of hers. I'm so excited!!

Be sure to comment for a chance to win the patterns!!

  21. OH! I hope I win the patterns! I have some of the patterns but haven't been able to find them all. I pull them out of my pattern drawer often and fawn over them and put them back. I have started thinking I may just make what I have and make up blocks to fill in the empty spots.
    Your quilt is beautiful!

  33. Well you have plenty of tops to complete. It is hard not to get involved in all of the new projects in blog land. Bonnie's Mystery quilt sounds like fun. I would love to make that quilt, it is nice of you to pass the patterns along. I have a bit of a stash of red, white and blue. I might have to stop over at your other blog now that we are getting closer to holiday time!

  39. Wow that top looks beautiful!! I think the extra blue border is perfect.
    As much as I like it - as a Canadian I can't picture myself making it - so don't put my name in for the giveaway.
    It will be fun to watch your progress with Bonnie's mystery quilt!

  54. All it took was for me to see "Giveaway" on your thumbnail and I flew over here!! I LOVE the quilt, Lori. But then your work is always stunning. I love Blue Hill, too, and I see he took some designers with him when he left Windham! A little competition is always good for us consumers.

  68. After such a stunning finish on the top, I think it's only fair you get to start a new one, especially good when it's a stash buster. What a lovely idea to pass the patterns on but don't put me in the draw, I'm have a huge list to work on.

  76. "How does she do this?" were my thoughts when I saw your latest quilt top. I LOVE all things Piece O Cake and would really like to make an applique quilt. This would be a great project. Love your little stack of quilts to be quilted stack too. Curious though, how many hours a week do you work on quilting projects?
