Just Takes Two and Giveaway!!

I set my cowboy quilt aside yesterday to get the first quarter of the Just Takes 2 sampler together. I don't want to get too far behind.  I am not normally a huge fan of sampler quilts, but this quilt will really be a good reminder of the red and white quilt exhibit in NYC and my memorable vacation with my daughter.
I have an extra copy of Primitive Quilts & Projects to give away!! I'm still so excited to have my Cheddar Cheese & Cracker quilt in here alongside some of my favorite designers.


Look at these wonderful projects made by these talented designers!! Be a follower and leave a comment to win my extra copy. I'll draw a name on Friday. Good luck!!

Back to Cowboy quilt #2...

  1. Love your Just Takes 2 quilt sampler so far, Lori. I've put mine way back on the back burner for now :)

    I did notice your sweet quilt in the Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine and had to smile. It's a lovely little piece :) Congratulations to you.

  18. Just Takes 2 is wonderful and I agree reminds me of the exhibit photos I was only able to see via internet...would have been grand in person!
    I'd LOVE to win a copy as I haven't found it on the magazine racks here yet. If I'm lucky enough to win I do ask that you autograph your quilt for me! Fingers crossed here.

  19. Your Just Takes 2 Sampler is beautiful. Inspires me to make one, also.

  20. I am being won over with cheddar cheese and primitive patterns. Love the Take Two Project but I too could not partake with it, so it is on the back-burner (saving all the patterns. Am keeping up with the tutorials and learning from your blog.
    I've got a mini-quilt due and plan on using the cheddar cheese color with black. Thank you for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love your cowboy quilt, it's on my list of quilts to make. I've never really paid that much attention to two colored quilts. Looking at your, It Takes Two, makes me rethink that. Your red and white feathered star is beautiful. If I made every quilt I loved I will have to live for eternity. I'm a new follower, I might have been and old follower, or I just pop in a lot. ;-> Toni Anne

    If I win the magazine will you autograph it for me? :)

    If I don't win I will go but it so I can have the issue that your quilt is in.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I, too, am working on the JT2 sampler, some of those blocks can be a bit intimidating. Yours looks lovely.
    As for your darling little quilt in Primitive Quilts -- well I want to make it so badly I can taste it!
    I love your blog Lori, and am a faithful reader, although not a "follower" until today. I loved "Pink Lemonade"!
