TIME FOR A GIVE-AWAY!!!

 I want my quilting/blogging friends to know how much I have enjoyed getting to know so many quilters over the years I have been blogging.  Yes, quilting friends, it is time for a Give-Away!  In fact, it is long overdue, so I decided not let it delay any further.  No, it's not a blogging anniversary (that would be in November - believe it or not, it will be 8 years).  It's not my birthday or anything like that.  It's just TIME to have a give-away.

These are the items someone will win:

1.  A thread catcher made by me.

Thread Catcher
2.  4 fat quarters.  Three of them go together and are so unique.  I love them, but I will sacrifice them for the give-away.

4 Fat Quarters
3.  3 patterns that I have used, but will never use again (Baskets for you, Over the River and Through the Woods and Warm Feet).  The first 2 are wall hangings and Warm Feet is a set of 6 "stocking" Christmas Tree Ornaments - no wool provided.  The 1st place winner will get to choose one and 2 runners up will each get one of what's left.  All three of these are used, but complete patterns that I have made.    You may remember seeing the finished products.

3 Patterns
All you need to do is leave a comment on this post and let me know which pattern you would want should you win first place.  If you come in 2nd or 3rd, I will try to give you the pattern you want unless it's already taken.

One entry per person, no extra hoops to jump through and you may tell your blogging friends if you want to - no extra entries for this.

Good Luck!  I will draw on August 17.  I'm so sorry, but this will be for USA only because of the cost of postage.

I always loved looking at your blog and seeing what you are making. If I happen to win, I would like the Crabapple Hill pattern. I have always wanted to make that quilt. Thanks for a chance to get the pattern!

I love that pretty thread catcher! I have one that style that I purchased, but the fabrics are so dull and lifeless that I have been thinking of replacing it.
I know being first isn't the best of places in a giveaway, but I have to take my chances. : )
Thanks for the giveaway, Ruth.

I've never had a thread catcher----well, other than the floor! *wink* I'm sure I could find a use for those FQ's, and I love the "Over the River" pattern! How nice you are to share! I've loved having you as a bloggin' buddy since my early APQ days, but your friendship means even more. ---"Love"

I love your thread catcher! If I do not win your giveaway I would love to know where you got the pattern for it so Icould make one. I am doing a lot of applique right now and it would be so handy! Of the patterns I really like the Over the River and Through the Woods. Yours turned out so beautifully. I am already working on a basket pattern similar to yours. Thanks for the chance to win a pattern. I enjoy your blog!
