Giveaway Featuring Kona Solids and Abacus Quilt Along Schedule

Thanks to my fabulous friends at Robert Kaufman for donating this lovely bundle of Kona Solids for one of you to win!


This is to get you guys jazzed about my upcoming Quilt Along which starts next week!

Included in the bundle are 8 fat quarters of the exact same colors I am using in my version of Abacus. They are: Navy, Turquoise, Baby Blue, Jade Green, Berry, Cerise, Petunia and Pomegranate. Also included is a nice sized chunk of Medium Grey which is what I picked for my background and binding.

    I am joining the abacus quilt along & I do believe it will be my favorite….but I won’t play favorites, I’ll try as many as I can! 😉

  2. Deborah Andry says:

    I love the Christmas Tree and Chevron quilt alongs. I got to see your Chevron quilt at the Paducah AQS Quilt show. It is beautiful. Congratulations.

  3. Gretchen berg says:

    My favorite quilt along is the Christmas trees. I actually made it using scraps of Christmas fabric to make a piece of patchwork fabric and then cut out the trees. I was very happy with the results!

  4. ckcowl says:

    I love the charming Chevron and it has become my go-to for baby quilts, I’ve made 4 of them so far (I think nieces/nephews are done having babies for now, whew)

  5. Kristy says:

    my favs are modern trees and charming chevrons….HOWEVER….I just scored a sizzix big shot at a craft consignment shop in Longmont Colorado for cheap so I think I want to try the abacus quilt, with no fear of injuring myself cutting circles with a rotary cutter!!! I know, I could just use scissors…but I think that may just drive me mad haha.

  6. Donna Towner says:

    I LOVE the tree quilt and the jelly roll quilt! You do such nice work. Id love to try your new one Abacus – So please ~~~ Hope I win the fabric !!
    Thank you
    Donna Towner

    I’m doing my very first quilt-a-long right now. My LQS is doing the MODA Modern Building Blocks quilt. I hope it will improve my piecing – i.e. a 6 inch block actually turns out to be 6 inches. Yours look fun – I think I prefer the Abacus quilt – very modern. Thanks! notwendy gmail

  8. Sharon says:

    I too love them all, but my favorite is Baby Bricks. It is so cute and easy to make! I haven’t made the Jolly Jelly Roll Quilt yet but it is on my ‘to do’ list.

  9. Laura says:

    I quilted along with you last year making the Modern Trees quilt. My husband was recovering from surgery and we were housebound. Perfect for quality quilting time.

  10. Shelley Folkerts says:

    My favorite would have to be String of Pearls. I did not get to sew along the first time around. I have this pattern all cut out and bagged up to make myself a batik version of String of Pearls in the near future. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  11. Louise says:

    Tough choice! I would like to make Modern Trees myself, but I was given Sea Of Squares as a gift and love, love, love the quilt! It’s on my bed right now 🙂

  12. Mona says:

    I learn so much from all of your quilt alongs just by reading thru them. I have the kits for Sea of Squares (which is my favorite) and Baby Blocks, both blue and pink, and the pastel chevron. I hope this is a good winter for sewing!!

  13. cj says:

    My favorite is Modern Trees because that is how I found your blog… googling ‘modern’. And, so glad I did! I have learned so much from the information on your site. Thank You!

  14. Laura Belkin says:

    My favorite of your quilt alongs is the Modern Trees, but my all time favorite of your quilts is Spinning Out of Control. Any chance that could be a quilt along?

  15. Marty Askins says:

    I love them all. But if I have to chose just one it would be the “String of Pearls.” Thank you for having this giveaway.

  16. Rachal Chohonis says:

    Modern Trees….followed along last year, on my make list for this holiday. May try the Abacus too, scary circles and all 🙂

  17. Sierra Milton says:

    Love, love, love the Chevron! I found a quilt kit (somehow lost the pattern from it) that I am going to use the fabrics now for the Chevron quilt. Thanks for the inspiration!

  18. Beth Curtis says:

    Love Kona solids and this is a great quilt! String of Pearls was my favorite of your quilt-alongs (although I was not able to participate).

  19. Wendy says:

    I’m about to start your sea of squares quilt along! I’m going to use blues and purples. I love how you put the piecing time and total time (not that I think I’ll be quite as quick!) it makes it easy to plan a weekend of sewing! What a lovely giveaway too! Thanks for the chance 🙂
