International Quilt Weekend Is Here!

It's Heeere...International Quilt Weekend is upon us.  Since Alex and Ricky from The Quilt Show are having a big party I decided to join in on the fun.  Details about the amazing things happening at The Quilt Show are listed below.  I'm adding to it:  anyone who is signed up to follow my blog (either through Google Friend Connect or Networked Blogs) will be eligible for some prizes.  Among them are a copy of Victoria Findlay Wolfe's newest book, "Double Wedding Ring Quilts:  Traditions Made Modern", fabric bundles including a Kaufman solid rollup, a Hoffman fabric bali pop or other pre-cut collection, and Havel's Scissors!  You must be a follower and comment at the bottom of this post to be eligible, and the drawing will take place at noon on 3/23/15.  I will announce the winners on this post the evening of 3/23, so please check back!  Thanks for participating, and don't forget to stop over to The Quilt Show for more details on their celebration of International Quilt Weekend!  Woo Hoo!

March 24th:  Greetings!  I used my "Randomizer" app to select the winners of the giveaways.  Sorry I am a day late in posting:  I forgot that I would be out of town teaching a workshop/lecture to the Colorado Valley Quilt Guild.  I have notified the winners in the comments section.  Please check your comment.  If you have been selected you will see my reply.  If you are a winner use the contact button at the base of the blog header to get in touch with me.  I will need your email as well as your "snail mail" addresses, please.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and congratulations to the winners!


In honor of International Quilting Weekend, March 20-22 (that's NEXT weekend!), 2015, The Quilt Show (www.thequiltshow.com), the web TV show hosted by Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims, will open all of its shows from the first nine series-- shows 100-1513 --for the entire weekend. This means that, for three special days, everyone will have the chance to view over 200 shows, featuring some of the quilting world’s leading artists, for FREE. 
This year's sponsors are contributing over $5000 in prizes, including the Grand Prize, a BERNINA 550 QE.  Other prizes you have a chance to win are:
·         Innova – Have your quilt professionally quilted ($500 value)
·         Superior Threads – five $100 gift certificates
·         RJR Fabrics – a Delicious Selection of RJR Fabrics
·         AccuQuilt – GO! Big Electric Fabric Cutter
·         Missouri Star Quilt Company – $500 in Quilter’s Cash plus signed copies of Volume 1 of Block Magazine and Man Sewing Swag

As you may already know, I appeared as the featured artist on TQS in show 1510. If you didn't have the opportunity to see this show the first time around, now you'll have the chance to see it—and so many other terrific shows—at no cost in this unprecedented three-day offer.

I hope that you'll share this information with all of your quilting friends. It's a fantastic opportunity to enjoy three days of learning and fun without leaving your home…all for free.
Enjoy the shows, and thanks for helping to spread the word!
