Day Two International Quilting Weekend(Giveaways!)

Yesterday was a busy day for me - and I didn't get any quilting done. Today I hope to get some piecing done or maybe a bit of free motion quilting practice.

I wanted to share with you a couple of the other prizes from The Quilt Show for this weekend.
Quilters Select cutting mats are a great prize.  I suppose you know that you eventually need to replace your mats.  While they are self-healing, that doesn't last forever. tiny bits get stuck in them and can cause your rotary blade to skip.  So, I  would love to win these mats!

And how about rulers?  I was surprised when I found out that rulers wear also. The blade of your cutter can nick the edge and cause crooked cuts. But also the edge wears down and your cut gradually becomes inaccurate. So, yes, I think new rulers are a great prize also.  These are also from Quilters Select.

So be sure to go to the entry form, and enter to win some of the great prizes from the wonderful sponsors of The Quilt Show.

And one more prize from The Quilt Show - How about a one year Star Membership to  The Quilt Show? Use the Rafflecopter widget to enter.

Here are a couple of fun possibilities for celebrating International Quilting weekend also.  Did you know that Craftsy has free mini-classes? Well they do!  One I have taken is Creative Quilt Backs with Elizabeth Hartman.  I love a reversible quilt, so a pieced back is a great way to make your qult reversible - and use some scraps - and not have to buy wide backing fabric.
And if you want to make a quilt front,  you could take the  Craftsy 2016 Block of the Month class with Lynette Jensen,


Have a happy Quilting Weekend.

A lot of my rulers are worn on the edges and no longer accurate so they are my favorite of the prizes.

My favorite is the collection of Patrick Lose fabrics. So gorgeous!

For some reason, of late I have started nicking the edge of my quilt rulers. A couple of times I have taken decent sized chunks out. So, new rulers are on the list.

Wow!!! There are so many fantastic prizes... Even though one never has enough fabric, I think that a new cutting mat would be something I could really use!!

I'm hoping to get some sewing done tonight, also. My favorite prize would be the machine. Anything else would be fun to win, too.

GranChris said...

Any prize would be great but I need new mats, mine are so old.

Jill said...

I just love to watch and learn new techniques. Have plenty of supplies at the moment so the show membership would be great! Thanks for a chance.

I would love to be a full fledged member of the Quilt Show! I can do the freebies when offered and get their email anyway. Talented folk, aren't they?

However, should I be lucky enough to be picked anything is good!

Gene, I don't know if that creative quilt backs link is working? http://www.craftsy.com/class/creative-quilt-backs/117?_ct=iuqhsx-kdyluhiqb-huikbj-sekhiu&_ctp=117 I know you are an associate and I want to be sure you get credit.

I think I will sign up for that one---sounds fun and I have a top or two that could use some creative working on available fabric!
