On News Stands Now --- GIVE-AWAY!

***Update!*** This drawing has CLOSED! Congrats to our winner, Susan Torrens!


My issues of the latest Quiltmaker Magazine May/June 2012 were here on my counter waiting for me when I walked in the door yesterday afternoon!

This is such a wonderful issue, full of summery quilt ideas --- and this issue comes with an “EXTRA BONUS” There is a double sided pull out of quilting motifs PERFECT to fit the quilts in this magazine, or to add to your collection of ideas for the quilting on future quilts!

I collect quilting designs. You never know when you are going to need them, or when just looking through them leads to the inspiration on how to best quilt that project.

My Addicted to Scraps column is always a surprise to me. I never know what they are going to choose for where, because I send a whole year’s worth in at once – and then the “powers that be” decide which block I’ve sent in will fit which issue best. So I quickly have to get into the magazine and find my page --- it’s like Christmas!

OH! They chose "THIS ONE!" I've been waiting for them wondering when it will show up!

I love this block --- I’ve named my version “Whirly Girly!”

QMMP-120200-SCRAP_200_11269

I consider myself a very traditional quilter ---and taking a traditional block with a very MASCULINE name, like “Propeller” and doing it in the shades of spring --- pinks, greens, red ---gives it a “Girly” feel that I like! This reminds me of the flowers that were waiting for me in my yard when we pulled into the drive yesterday --- my azaleas are blooming!

MolineIL2012 280

The gals at Quiltmaker took my block and worked up a sample layout:

145addictedtoscrapslayout

Do you see how you can get a secondary pinwheel design if you set them block to block? The center bars of the block become a sashing! It totally changes the look! You can also set this block with an alternate block, put it on point, sash it – the options are endless. You don’t even have to do it scrappy. Pick a color scheme ---

Check out the previous “Addicted to Scraps” blocks by clicking HERE!

Would you like to win a copy of Quiltmaker’s Magazine May/June issue? I have one extra copy! Leave me a comment below--- I’ll draw for it on Saturday Evening. And if you can't wait that long --you'll find it on news stands near you NOW!

Remember, if you are commenting as anonymous, or if you have not made it so your email address is accessible when you comment, you NEED to leave me a name and an email address in your comment to be eligible.

And speaking of this Saturday! It’s the first Saturday of the Month which means --- YARD SALE SATURDAY! I will have a few things to list. Those who want to join me, write your blog post with your items, and come link it to mine Saturday morning. I’m going live at 7am eastern time. I know it’s the day before Easter for many of you, but let’s see what we can pull together! Any questions? Just email me!

    Bonnie,
    We just got back from a cruise where I didn't have anything QUILTY the whole 2 weeks we were gone. I'm needing a pick-me-up and this magazine would certainly do the trick! Love, love, love the block!

  3. Ever since I discovered your site several years ago, I've been addicted to making scrappy quilts! My husband calls them "garbage quilts" because he threatened to throw my 15 year collection of scraps in the garbage unless I started to use them. I used your "scrap users" system to get them organized and now they get used regularly. I still think that they reproduce in the bins when I'm not looking!

  42. Your azaleas make me homesick! The farm house I grew up in Florida was surrounded by these beauties, they were old and had grown to the tops of the porches. I loved spring when they would bloom and the bees would visit...it was like living in a pink and purple castle! Sadly where I am living at the moment in NC I don't have a single azalea! I think I might have to head to the garden center and grab some azaleas this spring!

  47. I love the idea of the BONUS EXTRA and I do wish more magazines would give suggestions/patterns for the quilting designs - I never find "quilt as desired" very helpful and it is often difficult to see the quilting in the photos of the finished quilts... What a lovely latest block - it looks so versatile!

    I have existed quietly in the background of your blog for a couple of months now...Finally feeling like I can comment here! I would love to take some inspiration as a new quilter.. Your page offers so much each day as I follow you on your trips through your postings. I love love love that you include pictures where you are. I will wait to see who you choose for the magazine give away. If its not me then I will look for one in one of my local stores. I love the whirly girl pinwheel. Reminds me of my childhood. I always got a pinwheel in my Easter basket on Easter morning. Now I get them for my grandaughters! Just in time for Easter weekend <3 Thanks for all you do with your page!

    I loved that you were in John Deere country this week. I'm a rabid JD fan. My Daddy had a JD tractor and the picture I carry of him in my purse is him on his tractor.

    This is too funny. I looked for the magazine this morning before I saw your FB message. I was really disappointed that the store didn't have Quiltmaker. Who knows, perhaps I won't have to buy a copy? Thanks for the opportunity to submit my name.

    I've never read this magazine before so I would love to see what it's like and read your column too. Been reading your blog every day for the last two months - just finished the top for 'My Blue Heaven' and cutting now for 'Random Ohio Stars' whilst planning for 'Nine Patch Split.' Congrats on all your recent awards.

  141. I would love a copy of the magazine, not many newsagents carry USA quilt magazines but if they do there always two months old!

  142. I have adopted the philosphy for collecting quilt patterns also, just like you, I have decided I was one step away from inspiration for making a quilt for someone. I have never made a quilt for me so this year I hope to do 2, just for me...but I am working on one for my son's best friend who is getting married, a picnic quilt. Quilting is such a pleasure.

  143. I LOVE your block, Bonnie. And I love floral themes, spring flower colors. The majority of my fabrics are florals. I'm sewing in the living room right now, because our Easter week visitors are using the Sewing/Guest room. No one minds my mess. Cannot put it all away; I'd go bonkers.

  144. Oh,yes! I'd be so happy to win this magazine! What a neat block, I'd love to see it in red/white/blues for a QOV quilt. And it's a great idea to include quilting ideas -- I'm always struggling with that. Thanks!

  155. Have you ever met anyone who wouldn't like a copy of that magazine? I have an e subscription and have never been able to figure out how I can get to it. I've emailed Quiltmaker and even tried calling, but so far no luck and this is probably the 3rd magazine I"m missing.

  161. First of all, Congrats on all of your wins. I love scrap quilts and have just recently quit smoking, so working with lots of scraps have helped my hands stay busy without a cigarette. This magazine will help me use my scraps, keep me from smoking and making lots of quilts.

  163. Bonnie,
    I shared your website with a friend today that received a TON of quilting fabric from a gentleman that lost his wife. This was the result of two houses and many years of collecting. She'll have a GRAND time making lots of quilts with love now.

    Update on my son Steve- he is home from rehab and doing well. We are now waiting on a new heart. Please keep him in your prayers. I would love to win the magazine as I haven't been able to work much and can't afford to buy it right now.

    Glad you had a great time in Moline. It's so interesting to get the history lessons- I really love them.
