Winner, Winner…

But not “Chicken Dinner!” I don’t even like chicken (that much). We quilters need to come up with a different ending for that that’s more “quilty!” But maybe the title to this post should be Winner, Winner…Winner! anyway, since I actually chose not just one, not two, but three winners this morning for the giveaway! I received so many wonderful tips and there were a number of you out there who blogged and tweeted about the giveaway, so I added a couple more prizes to the pot!

Inchie QuiltsWinner #1: Sheryl H. who sent in today’s tip on The Daily Stitch, as a matter of fact! Sheryl’s won a copy of Inchie Quilts and the InchieSee & InchieDo Viewer Tool & Ruler Set!

Winner #2: Dorothy H. who tweeted about the giveaway early on and then sent in lots of great tips right at the deadline last night! Dorothy’s won the InchieSee & InchieDo Viewer Tool & Ruler Set!

Winner #3: Maria@Maria Michaels Designs who sent tips and blogged about the giveaway has won the InchieSee & InchieDo Viewer Tool & Ruler Set!

I’ll contact the winners directly by email later today! Thank you ALL for playing along, and congrats to all the winners! I received so many great tips this time, and they’ll be coming at you on The Daily Stitch for the next month or so while I’m in the States. If you’re not a subscriber yet, what are you waiting for? You can subscribe by RSS or get The Daily Stitch delivered to you by email so you won’t miss out on all the great tips from fellow quilters!

Giveaway Update: First Tip Posts Tomorrow on The Daily Stitch

The Daily Stitch

I’m just popping in to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has sent in tips, blogged and posted on Twitter about the giveaway so far! I’ve received so many tips, and they’re all pret-ty ding dang dong wonderful! My personal favorite will post on The Daily Stitch tomorrow, September 30, and the rest will follow.

Here’s what I asked for:

Any quilting tips are great, whether they’re about cutting, piecing, pressing, fabrics, threads, embellishments, unusual uses for everyday items, favorite notions or gizmos, great places to shop, or fabulous quilt shows or events. I’d also love to hear about your favorite quilting artists, especially the little known ones, so send some links and tell me what you think is cool about their work.

And oh boy, did you deliver! Yes, dear readers and friends, you’ve made my life just a little easier before my big trip to the States, and you’re all just awesome! But there’s still time—time enough to send in your tip (or tips!) to get your name in the hat for a copy of Inchie Quilts, and an InchieSee & InchieDo Viewer Tool & Ruler Set. Every tip gets another chance to win! And I know there are more tips out there where these came from! Keep ’em coming! Deadline is October 1, and I’ll draw for the winner on October 2!

A Request for Help and an Inchie Quilts Giveaway

Can you believe that Quilt Market is only a little more than three weeks away? Eeeek! I’m attempting to get all my ducks in a row for my trip to the States for Quilt Market and the AQS Quilt Expo in Des Moines. I’m still working on finalizing lectures and workshop samples and preparations, and I think I’ll make it, but I could use a little help from my friends right about now.

Here’s the deal: I need to have about 30-40 tips for The Daily Stitch loaded up and ready to go before I leave for Quilt Market, and with everything else going on at the moment, I’m running a bit behind! Can you help me out here? Send a tip or two my way? I’d be ever so thankful! Continue reading “A Request for Help and an Inchie Quilts Giveaway”

Patchwork Times: Inchies, Photos, and the Giveaway

Inchies and threads

Just a few miscellaneous updates this morning:

The show quilt: Still working on the current show quilt with hundreds of Inchies. If I put all the Inchies end to end, there wouldn’t quite be a mile of them, but heck, with the deadline looming it surely seems that way. What you see here is the last stack of Inchies waiting for their edges to be put on, and then it’s time to embellish! I’ll spend an hour or so sewing the edges, and then the rest of the day at the beading table. ITMan has been tapped to be in charge of dinners until this quilt is done, so tonight is takeout Thai food! Continue reading “Patchwork Times: Inchies, Photos, and the Giveaway”
