Christa’s Year of Weekly Giveaways #23 – Tri Recs Tools

Since I’m using the Tri Recs ruler set in my brand new Modern Trees quilt along, I thought it only fitting that I’d give a set away this week. I also have them available for sale in my store for those of you that would like to pick one up for yourself.

Enter to Win My Weekly Giveaway

The giveaway this week is easy peasy – just give me your opinion on my quilt along. Do you prefer the solid trees or the improv trees? I like the solid ones but hubs prefers improv so I may have to make an improv block or two — maybe for the back. :-)

I’d like to know what you think as well! Just leave your comment below and I’ll draw one winner’s name at random next week.

The giveaway will be open through Wednesday, September 18 at 6 PM Pacific. Everyone is eligible to enter, no matter where in the world you live. You don’t even have to participate in my quilt along to win (although I’ve been very pleased with the enthusiasm for it so far).

Previous Winners

And now for my quilt along winners! 2 Weeks ago I opened a linky for those that had participated in any of my quilt alongs thus far. I chose 4 winners at random from all those that linked up. I must say I am proud of all the beautiful quilts that were created and the quality of work you gals are sharing. You can see more beautiful pictures on my flickr group at Christa’s Quilt Along.

    I like the improv trees. Thanks for a chance to win!

  2. Rachel says:

    I love the solid and will love to join your “quilt along”

  3. usairdoll says:

    I love your Trees quilt! One day I will do one of your quilt alongs. This month I had two trips and I knew I wouldn’t be able to sew and keep up. Love the solid trees with maybe just one improv in the mix.

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

  4. Hazel Walker aka Nanasneedles says:

    I love the clean goodness of the solid trees bringing some quiet time with the modern colors; my husband likes Christmas prints;l and our cat just lives a nice fresh small one to sit upon and look out the window while I sew. (She prefers the white which is a contrast with her “calico” colors — a great pop!) Nana W

  5. Pattie C says:

    I like both so I think I would do a mix just for fun.

  6. Deb says:

    I like the scrappy, but I also like your idea of solids on front and scrappy couple on back. I just found your quilt-along via Fresh Lemons blog post today. I LOVE the idea of a trees quilt!

  7. Lindsey w says:

    I love both the solid and scrappy! I can’t decide which one I want to do!

  8. Gretchen says:

    I like the scrappy trees! Love the contemporary look.

  9. Danita says:

    I like the scrappy trees…I think they would look really cool if you used christmas scraps all the same color on one tree. I hope to join your quilt-a-long… looks like fun

  10. Betty Jo Chaplin says:

    I’ve just found string quilts in a class with Bonnie Hunter. They are a great way of using up all your scraps. I will definitely make string trees.

  11. Diana Allen says:

    I like the solid trees the best. This would be a fast and simple way of cutting it out and putting it together.

  12. Laurie says:

    I love the improv trees because no two are ever the same !!!

  13. I’ll be using a charm pack, so mine will be a little bit improv/scrappy to make it up to size!

  14. catskillquilter says:

    I actually like both styles of tree! I suspect that I will make the improv trees, because I think that when you look at a quilt, it is fun to ‘discover’ extra areas of interest.

  15. Dawn P says:

    I really like the solid trees, but I like the idea of a couple improv ones for the back. Thanks!!

  16. VickiT says:

    I definitely love the solid trees more. What a cute idea for a quilt though.

  17. Linda Webster says:

    I like the solid trees the best. And I love the idea of putting a couple of the improv blocks on the back.

  18. Reg says:

    I’m actually having trouble deciding which trees I prefer. I plan on doing your “quilt along”, so I need to make a decision soon. Since I really like both so much, I might try to do a little of both….not sure that will look right…..but only trying will tell. I’m anxious to start this….it will be my first quilt along ever.

  19. ksl5343Kathy says:

    I love trees and your ideas for layout variations are great. As a quilting newbie I appreciate all the help, suggestions and great tutorials from others. kathleen dot lutz at doh dot state nj dot us

  20. farmquilter says:

    I prefer the solid trees, but a few of the improv trees on the back with your label would be great!

  21. Marjory W. says:

    I love the solid trees, but I’s also like to try the improvised trees.

  22. Neva Asinari says:

    I prefer the solid trees!

  23. Mania says:

    I prefer the solid tree, but on the back I’d give maybe one tree improvised.

  24. Lea says:

    I like the improv trees.

  25. minibea12 says:

    I prefer the solid trees!

  26. Liz Fane says:

    I would love to try the improv trees and use up some of my fabric stash.

  27. Andrea Franklin says:

    I think I prefer the solids at this moment in time, yet am also drawn to the improv….so putting one to three on the back sounds like a win win to me!

  28. Sandy says:

    Th3 improv trees are magnificent — just my particular taste. The solid ones are great as well, but the improv trees are unexpected! : )

  29. robin says:

    I prefer the solid trees on this one. Having said that, tho, I love the idea of using up lots of the tiny Christmassy scraps I cannot seem to part with in the improv trees!

  30. Mary Lynn says:

    I think the inprov look could be very interesting with the right fabrics.

  31. Veline says:

    I agree with a previous entry; the solid trees stand out more, so have to say I like them best.

  32. Lin Hulen says:

    I prefer the solid trees!

  33. MoeWest says:

    I would like the improve trees done with solid fabrics, but for print fabrics I like the solid tree. I like the suggestion in other comments of doing both in one quilt. I recently made a quilt with similar trees in Stonehenge fabric and I really like how it turned out.

  34. Kathy Craner says:

    I like the solid trees.

  35. Jody says:

    I prefer the solid trees.

  36. Brenda says:

    I prefer the improv scrappy ones, but I love anything scrappy!

  37. Laura says:

    I love the improv look, but for this project I am using bright happy solids.

  38. Clare says:

    I will join with solid trees and maybe sew charms on after quilting. using the ruler will be a big help.

  39. Sandy Hestes says:

    I prefer the solid trees. They stand out more
