Today I’ll be notifying all of the winners via email for the giveaways I hosted on my blog. Each of the blog participants will also be notifying their winners over the next few days, or at the conclusion of their giveaway.

Baby Geese is made from leftover scraps and “bonus triangles” – those leftovers when you trim off corner triangles. Because we couldn’t fit it in the book, my friends at Martingale have included it on their website as a bonus for anyone following the hop, or purchasing the book (the link to get the PDF is also included in the book.)

Win My Baby Geese Quilt!

And now for the most epic giveaway, one lucky reader (from the US) will actually win this quilt! It measures 43″ x 54″, perfect for a baby gift or lap quilt. Although I love all my quilts and am a little sad whenever I give any of them away, I’d be even happier knowing it went to a good home!

I love it when quilts get used – for a picnic on the grass, or for cuddling up!!

Help Me Choose a Quilt for My Next Quilt Along!

And now, for the most fun news, let’s make a quilt together! It’s been awhile since my last quilt-along where I guided you through the complete quilt from start to finish. So don’t you think it’s time for another one?

I want to remake one of the quilts from my book, using my new Modern Marks fabric which will be available in November. You’ll need to purchase a copy of the book to quilt along, but of course you can choose your own fabrics, and change it up however you like.

Modern Marks by Christa WatsonI’ll be working with my new Modern Marks collection from Benartex. I’ll offer bundles & quilt-along kits for pre-order soon, just in case you want to use the same fabrics as me.

Now here’s where I need your help. Please answer these questions in the comments below and I’ll choose one of the answers at random to win the Baby Geese quilt mentioned above! Of course, there’s never any obligation to quit along, and you are welcome to follow along and not even make the quilt! (Or you can pretend to make it virtually in your head!!) But this will help me get started planning the quilt along.

  1. Which of the four quilts below would you like to make along with me? I’m showing them mocked up in Modern Marks, but you can make it in any fabrics you like, of course!
  2. Would you rather start the quilt along in November (when the fabric hits the stores), or in January so we don’t have to worry about running into the holidays? I’m thinking it would be more practical to do it in January, but wanted to give you all the option to choose.

Whichever quilt and time frame gets the most votes (by commenting on THIS post) is the one I’ll choose for the QAL. I’ll leave the giveaway open for a full week (through next Thursday, Sept 7th) so you have enough time to choose. And feel free to share this blog post with your friends, so they can get in on the fun, too!

Which of the 4 Quilts Below Should We Make?

(1) Squiggles

Whew! I know that’s a lot of information for one post but I wanted to end this party with a fun celebration, just like it began. Thanks so much for following along, and be sure to keep in touch when you are making any of the quilts from the book. I’d love to cheer you on!

    I had originally leaned towards Arrows but finding that I had a huge box full of 5 inch squares I would be interested in doing the Squiggles quilt. Oh, who am I kidding, I could make all 30 quilts and still not put a dent in my stash. I have to start somewhere so all 30 quilts would be a great beginning.

  2. Sheila Brady says:

    I love them all but Gridwork is my favorite. I would like to start in January–November and December are too hectic with all the holiday events.

  3. Bruna says:

    Hi I’m Bruna from Italy. I’m a “dream” quilter, meaning that at this time I only can dream the quilt I would love to sew. And that quilt is … Squiggles. Thanks a lot for all that you do!!

  4. Kara Easterday says:

    I would choose ARROWS, and I would want to begin in JANUARY!
    As for the background I would choose SCRAPPY DARK CHARCOAL VARIOUS PRINTS AND SOLIDS. Then for the AAROWS VARIOUS BRIGHTS to make the whole thing POP! THEN TO find some show stopping thread to quilt my masterpiece in.

  5. Vickie Rauchwarter says:

    I’m new to quilting and found your site tonite…I think dot ‘n dash would be fun. And January, when activities tend to slow down for the rest of winter, would be a nice time for a project.
