What great giveaways!
I love paper piece patterns. I like to sew wall hanging quilts, small. But I make all kinds.

Lotta said...

I'm in love! I love the sewing box and hope to win. If I don't win I hope to buy it. I buy patterns for bags and stitcheries all the time, maybe I'll get around to make all of them one day.
Sewing with pre-cuts is so much fun and I love to use them. I like to make as much as possible out of them like lap quilts.

Oh Joy, you don't make things easy do you? I'm a pattern freak and there is no rhyme or reason as to the style of patterns I buy, I think I'll blame it on the changes in the moon, every new phase is a new phase in my choice. Sad I know but hey, an ecclectic mix make the quilting world go round. I really like the sewing caddy, it's awesome and so much nicer than the shoe box that I use at the moment.
Thanks for this chance.
hugs - Miche'le

Monica said...

I buy patterns because I like them. I don't usually buy them with a purpose. As far as quilt size goes, it doesn't really matter.

Thank you for the chance to win your great giveaway.

Red Geranium Cottage said...

Great giveaways!!!!
I love buying patterns just to buy them. lolol
But I do love easy quilt patterns and bag patterns.

Needled Mom said...

What a fabulous giveaway!! The sewing box is just fabulous.

I tend to buy patterns for useful items more than others. I do wonder what to do with my precuts. I seem to have been making mostly smaller quilts lately, but I do find the larger ones more useful.

Janice said...

Aren't you just so generous! I love the honey bun projects. At the moment I am always looking at Jelly Roll patterns, but it is generally just whatever takes my fancy at the time.

Hazel said...

Great giveaways love all the projects .Lets see I buy patterns for lap quilts as I donate them to single moms and seniors but also enjoy making useful things for gifts .

esquiltingpassion said...

OMG, what great and generous give aways, I hope my name gets picked.
I like lap size quilts and bags.
Elaine

May Britt said...

Please count me in the draw. Your patterns is so great and exactly the patterns I was going to buy if I found it in a quiltshop. I like all kind of patterns, but are very fond of patters of bags, quilting assecoire, toots aso.

Perri said...

What wonderful patterns! especially the one with the lovely bag & extra's pattern - everything is most useful for the stitcher! A wonderful giveaway Joy - thank you!
Happy stitching, P

Christine M said...

Your sewing caddy is fantastic. I'm sure you could lose things in there you could fit so much in! I haven't bought any pre-cuts before as I'm not too sure what to do with them. I like patterns for all sorts of things. Regards, Christine

SheilaC said...

I LOVE the sewing caddy pattern!! Thank you so much for the give away!!

KAYLEE said...

Thankyou so much Joy, I simply adore the sewing caddy and the pin cushion, I love anything stitchery and have only recently joined the world of patchwork, I buy all sorts of patters, from cloth dolls, to quilts, to bags.... and on and on I'm not bias at all. I hope to win one of your patterns they are glorious. Hugs Kaylee

Doina said...

I never bought patterns, because in Romania are not specialized in quilting stores. I hope to win this giveaway!

PatchworkRose said...

I buy patterns to make presents for my Friends Just so love the gorgeous needlebook and pincushion.
Cheers
Lynne

sandra said...

I buy patterns for lots of things, but mainly find I am drawn to bags.
Great Giveaway!!

Jeanette said...

Gawjus giveaway Joy. I just buy patterns for the heck of it i'm sure. :) But mostly my patterns seem to be to hold projects, pin, needles ect. But i guess really i buy patterns because something about them catches my eye. Hugs, Jeanette

Martina said...

Love your new patterns! Thanks for the great give away! I buy mostly patterns for small and practical things. Like little Wallhangings, bags, pincushions etc.. And I love to create out of scraps!

nima said...

wow...what a lovely give away. I love your sewing box.Please do add me for the draw thank you.

I like to buy patterns for bags. I like to make useful items more...but if i really love some pattern...i love to make decorative pieces as well.

I buy precuts for any particular project...other wise i go for a yard or more of fabrics.

In our part of the world weather wise, quilts are not a necessity. so i love to make quilted wall hangings,cushion, runners etc.

soggybottomflats said...

I like to buy patterns for full size quilts, but by the time I finish with them, it's pretty tweeked out! I also love the wool projects with small pieces. I have a red, white and blue quilt kit giveaway and would lov e to have you pop over for an opportunity to win it! Thank you for the fun giveaway, Elaine

Vicki said...

I am drooling over your gorgeous new patterns Joy. I love the zippered bag and all the extras to go with it. You have been very clever and its just gawjus!! Love it all :) hugs Vicki xoxoxox

Katrien said...

What a lovely give-away.
I like to buy patterns of pincushions and sewing things,like needlecases.But also a nice pattern of a quilt is always on my list.

Anonymous said...

I like to buy patterns for all sorts of things - a lot practical I supppose but there is still room for things that just look good to decorate the home. I love bags! Dolls! Quilts.....all sizes, they all have a different purpose. Small for lap quilts, back of couches, picnic rugs, cot quilts, play quilts. Large for beds. I usually decide what I want the quilt for when I come up with the idea for it.

Anne-Lise at Rag, Tag, Bobtail said...

Beautiful giveaway! I'm often drawn to bag patterns :) but I also love stitcheries and quilts, preferably larger ones that I dream of making ..

Thimbelina said...

What a lovely giveaway... I especially love the gorgeous sewing accessories pattern!
I can never go past a nice bag pattern!

Dawn said...

JOy your sewing caddy is gorgeous and so 'perfick'.... I am gonna have to make a few for pressies they are so spesh...

Hugs Dawn x x x

Sew Useful Designs said...

Hello beautiful!

You've thought of everything sweetheart, love the extra tote for taking your project 'out and about'!!

I really love pincushions and scissor fobs... generally, sewing parafinalia! I guess if something is pretty, I'll make it even if I don't "need" it! I'm also very interested in patterns that cater for pre-cuts - because it takes so much of that "thinking" and cutting time out of the equation - always a good thing when you just want to sew, sew, sew!!! :-)

Hugs darling! Vikki xxxx

Jenny said...

I LOVE that sewing box, would love to win but would definitely buy a pattern for it. I don't usually buy patterns at all, I mostly make up my own. I do look at books for ideas for quilts and tend to alternate between making bed quilts and then using the scraps for smaller projects.

Ondrea said...

Oh Joy oh Joy!!! Such a lovely lot of things!! I usually seek out patterns for small items I can make for gifts especially those which have stitcheries on them. I have a thing about small, mini quilts and have a couple of pattern books for making some. This is a great way of using up odds and ends of my stash. Thanks for the chance in your giveaway Joy!

marina said...

What a lovely giveaway.
I usually like to buy patterns that that I am sure I will use, whatever the pattern is for (if it has stitcheries in it I am quite tempted) . I like to make lap type quilts -just easier on lots of levels. It seems a more achievable goal to plan, sew and quilt.
Marina

Queen Of The Armchair aka Dzintra Stitcheries said...

HiJoy...what a wonderful and very generous giveaway...Please count me in!!! As far as patterns go I buy all sorts, whatever catches my eye...especially if the fabric colours are great...doesn't really matter what it is...although I must say I am collecting quite a few now LOL!!! Just love 'em...Dzintra♥x

Joy McD said...

Gorgeous patterns!
I love anything cute... be it handy or frivolous... and at the moment I am very into using precut fabric like jelly rolls and charm packs, etc...
lv,
Joy

Sharon said...

Hi Joy what a wonderful give=a=way. I really enjoy making useful items like your basket, tote bage, scissor fobs stuff like that. I also like to make throw quilts or wallhangings. This way I get to quilt them myself.. And if I can sew from pre cuts I do because it even makes making the quilt getting to the finish line much faster...take care

KaHolly said...

What fun is this?? Lately, I'm into purchasing patterns for little things, such as the pattern you are offering for your give-away. It's new for me. I've always been 'just a quilter', and am having so much fun making bags and stitcheries, needle and tea wallets, and the like. Thanks! ~karen

Marianna said...

I just love the sewing assecoires pattern. So lovely to have all kinds of sewing items with the same style of fabric. I would love patterns for pre cuts as I really have trouble to know what to do with them, but love to buy them. Of course I can buy books for them, but I love single patterns for items I really love. In books there are always only 2-3 things I like to make. I love lap quilts or wall hangings. And I love stitchery aswell. If I don't win I would love to know where I can buy this pattern of all those lovely goodies! Thanbks for making those lovely patterns!

Linda said...

I would love to win these patterns ! They are so cool. I have been watching the quilt as you go pattern and it looks so fun to make. I tend to buy patterns for quilts and bags, and some just because ! Thanks

Jan said...

Wow! How great are these pretty things - and practical, too. I generally buy patterns featuring this combination to make things for my home, as sewing accesssories or something special for me or another member of my family - and I love softies too. Thank you for your generosity, Joy.

Wow they would look great at my place.

I love to buy patterns that one day I will get round to making them.

Debbie said...

I think this giveaway is one of the best that I've seen in quite a while! Please enter me!! I would love to win these patterns. I enjoy most making/sewing home decor and organizational items. I think that it makes a home so warm and cozy when you have useful as well as beautiful things that you have made there.

englishteacup said...

Please put my name in the give away. I love to buy bag patterns. Have a great day Englishteacuo(Lynne)

Maree: said...

Love your sewing set...I mainly buy Quilt Patterns but they really have to catch my eye...I don't mind what size but if it's a bed size it's usually for a Gift...
Now that I have Baby E I am going Crazy over Baby stuff..
cheers

Sherry said...

What a beautiful giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity to win! I generally make queen size quilts...the quilt has to fit my double pillow top mattress because, of course, all my quilts are made for me. ;o) Somehow, some of them find new homes. I love aprons and, therefore, apron patterns. My son is in the health care profession; I make his scrubs. Now I am into baby patterns since both of husband's children are FINALLY going to grace him with grandchildren in November and January.

grendelskin said...

Ohh, pretty! I like patterns for bags and other functional items - though I don't always get around to making them. I tend to make my quilts oversized; it's no fun if it really only fits one lap!

Marj said...

Thank you for your giveaways.
I buy patterns to make gifts for friends...useful items. Also, I make lap quilts and baby quilt from pre-cuts.
Love the sewing box!

Betty said...

What great patterns. I especially like the Sewing Caddy and go alongs. I have all sorts of patterns. For a long time I was into bags and purses. I try to do it all, large quilts, lap quilts, table runners, placemats and have recently started stitching. So many projects and not enough time to do them all.
I would love to win one of your patterns. Thanks for the nice giveaway.

mandapanda said...

Hey Joy, what fabbo patterns! Count me in!!!
I like to buy patterns for things that I know I'll need the pattern for. Like, if I can look at something and know how it's put together, then I don't need a pattern and can just make my own. But if something's complicated, then I'll need a pattern! I love patterns for 3D soft toys, as they're the hardest to copy.
I've made a Q quilt top, but haven't had the time (or knowledge) to be able to quilt it yet. I think maybe a lap size quilt would be much easier to start with!
Many Hugs!

Robyn *Ü* said...

Wow that is a really nice pattern. I tend to buy something that just grabs my eye. I like all kinds of things. I buy clothing patterns, accessories (like yours here), purses and totes and of course quilts. I have favorite designers and I frequent their blogs because I usually buy what they have just because I like their style.

Diane H said...

What amazing prizes! Thank you Joy for putting my name in. I buy patterns for smaller projects and smaller quilts. I make and give away as gifts most of my projects.

Terry said...

What lovely patterns! I honestly don't buy a lot of patterns, but I have a weakness for stitcheries. I like to buy books with several patterns in them too, for quilts and such. Thanks for the giveaway Joy! :0)

Barb said...

I love your patterns! I especially love your Square Dance! I buy patterns mostly for wallhangings, lap and bed size quilts. I do buy an occassional bag pattern. Thank you for such a great giveaway!

Anita said...

At this moment I like to make items which are usefull. Maybe because I don't know where to hang or put my quilts. And I like to see them all. But I can use a lot of bags and boxes and yours are so lovely. Your giveaway is very generous.

Margie said...

Please put my name into the pot. Love patterns for gadgets. In younger years my patterns were for cloths, but don't enjoy that anymore. Like to make big quilts but the quilting of them is a problem. Can't quilt them on the machine so they need to be done by hand!! Thanks for doing this!!

SoozeM said...

Wow they are so gorgeous! I buy patterns for all sorts of things, bags and accessories especially, and quilts if it is applique or a special piecing technique. I don't do clothes though :)

Odette said...

Hola, muy hermosos los patrones de su sorteo, seria estupendo ser una de sus ganadoras, me encantan los patrones de stitchery, de bolsos y de accesorios de costura.
Saludos y que tenga una estupenda semana.

Quilt Hollow said...

That sewing caddy box with the zipper closure is AWESOME.... This is EXACTLY the type of patterns I enjoy for gift giving birthday "quilt" related gifts to friend's who APPRECIATE the work that went into them. This is an awesome giveaway! If by chance my name is not chosen could you contact me regarding the pattern? Thanks!!

Quilt Hollow said...

The sewing box with the caddy is EXACTLY what I look for when gift making for quilter friends who APPRECIATE the thoughtfulness of homemade gifts. This pattern is wonderful and if I don't when could you please contact me with regards to the pattern. It's is absolutely perfect!!

Dj said...

I buy a lot of apron, quilt and costume patterns.

Cory said...

Right now I am into patterns for precuts so these two are perfect. Thank you for the awesome give-away. Take care and God bless, Cory

Dj said...

I buy a lot of apron, quilt and costume patterns.

Love Bears All Things said...

Beautiful! I like making useful things...I'd love to learn 'quilt as you go'...I prefer smaller quilts because they are easier to work with and finish faster..
Mama Bear

patticakes said...

I love both these patterns! The project tote looks super useful and the jelly roll quilt is gorgeous!
I love patterns for those tempting pre-cuts (truthfully, I love ALL patterns!)

Wendy said...

I am in love with your sewing caddy! How wonderful to have a place to stash an ongoing project. I crazy quilt and this would be perfect for me. I love to buy patterns for all types of goodies. When I buy quilt patterns I usually like the full bed patterns best, and since I have a super king size bed I always have to refigure and add more to it.lol I do like to use precuts as they are fun to use. Thanks for this great giveaway. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Vicki said...

WOW, what gorgeous patterns! The sewing caddy looks perfect for my needs now that i am doing much more sewing and learning to quilt as well and the quilt pattern is beautiful!!
Vicki

James-Linda said...

Dionne said...

GREAT giveaways! I buy patterns because I just can't resist them. There is always a fabulous something to make and they always look so good in the pictures! Although I am drawn to pretty things, I always wish I would make more useful things. That is why I make quilts! Nothing better than a yummy (and beautiful) quilt on a cold rainy evening! big or small I love them all!
Cheers, Dionne (in Seattle)

moramargaritaster said...

I love the sewing box,and hope to win.
Thanks to for the chance to win.

Kathy said...

What wonderful giveaways! Oh My! I would love to be a winner.

I like to sew both small and large quilts; I also enjoy making bag and stitchery patterns. I buy lots of patters and sure wish I had time to do them ALL. A girl can dream though!

...tiktakro... said...

All of these are so lovely, that can drive someone "mad" for :))
I always, and mean really always, in for useful things....useful is the major word in my hobby, that's me.
I also find more useful a large bed quilt than a lap one ;).More work into it but much better...yep!that's me ;).

Winona said...

I definitely buy patterns for useful items. I'm a simple woman. I love pretty things, but they need to have a purpose. I mostly buy purse or tote bag patterns. I make both size quilts, but prefer the smaller ones. They just make up so much faster. I am a hand quilter. It takes a while to hand quilt a bed size quilt. I really haven't done much with the precuts. Great giveaway. Winona

Tudy said...

I love your giveaway and I buy patterns for things I can make for gifts.

Jeanne said...

Lots of wonderful projects! Nowadays, I tend to buy patterns for accessory type things rather than quilting patterns. However, I have enough of both to last forever. L-)

Nancy said...

I love all the goodies...how fun...

I love a challenge and right now am doing 121 6 inch paper pieced blocks for the Civil War Love Letters quilt for my husband...

I do mostly baby and lap quilting and will buy a pattern if it has a new technique to learn or a twist on an old favorite..

right now I am searching for the easiest way to do the Pickle Dish block

BubzRugz said...

Wonderful patterns.... all beautiful AND useful. I am eclectic in my patterns and colours - I like to make what takes my fancy and try different techniques. Some quilts are big and others smaller. However I don't own one - they're are all given away!There is one criteria - the quilt must be used - it is not for the cupboard!

Chris G in Fl, USA said...

Oh wow.....how much fun is this? I enjoy such a wide range of projects, it's hard to choose one. Most of the time what comes out of my sewingroom is for one of my Treasures (grandchildren ages 15, 14, 12 10.

SandyN said...

Joy.

What a great giveaway.... I just LOVE the patterns.. Thanks for being so generous.

Thanks

kerryinAUS said...

What a great pattern, i love to make useful things, bags, holders and lots of sewing thingys, so i would love to win this pattern. Thanks so much, Kerry.

Quiltin' Sandy said...

WOW what a fabulous giveaway, Joy! :-)
I like useful things but I prefer them to be pretty as well. I like stitcheries, and prefer be quilts to smaller sizes. As for pre-cuts, I have just become the "owner" of my first jelly roll, and looking forward to using it in a project.
Keeping my fingers/toes crossed. bye for now, hugs, sandy.

Jo in TAS said...

Hi Joy,
Your pattern is awesome, there's so much in it! I'm a sucker for small projects, you know ones that are quick to do and won't lose my interest like I do when I tackle a large quilt that requires lots of work. Most of my UFO's are quilts.
My tastes are eclectic though from country to shabby from softies to bags, you name it I love to make it! I just need more hours in the day!
Hugs
Jo

Dee said...

Hi Joy! Lately I buy patterns for pre-cuts. I've been collecting them for a while and need to know how to use them up now.

Janelle said...

Hi Joy
Love your sewing caddy! I vowed to myself that I would not buy any more patterns as I have too many that I want to make up and not enough time! So I love the opportunity to win them! I've been buying second hand Country Threads and Homespun magazines for patterns and things, and have a huge backlog that I haven't read yet! I like stitcheries and useful things, but I really love a bit everything!

Kathy said...

Oh, if I could be so lucky to win this give away! I love the sewing box especially. I don't buy many patterns, but I like bag patterns. I like usefull things and really would like to make a quilt incorporating some embroidery and may some applique. Thanks for the chance to win your lovely patterns.

Gladys said...

Hola, Joy! Qué maravillosos trabajos! Felicitaciones! Son preciosos! Me gustan los patrones de trabajos útiles, prácticos y usables y que se hagan rápido! Jajaja! Yo hace sólo un año que comencé a hacer patchwork y estoy preparando algunas colchas grandes, sin saber qué haré con ellas aún ya que mi cama es Super King! Pero ya aprenderé! Jajaja! Gracias por darnos la chance de participar! Un fuerte abrazo!

Bev C said...

Hello Joy,what a beautiful pattern. Thank you for sharing this wonderful pattern in your giveaway. I love patterns because you can actually own something that is designed with love. It really doesn't matter to me what sort of pattern it is. I would make that sewing holder it is so useful. I could then hide some things in there and my sewing room would look just that more tidier!!!
Have a great weekend.
Bev.xoxo

pamdux said...

Right now I am looking for purse and patterns that are useful around the house as my 3 grand-daughters and my daughter are all learning to sew and quilt. With 3 sewing machines and a serger in the house we are all having fun. pamspinks.blogspot.com

shelia said...

Fabulous giveaway!
I like to make...almost anything. But i do buy patterns for purses or baby clothes mostly :)

nicoledemana said...

the sewing box is ace omg this is an amazing chance to improve my sewing skills pick me Please lol;0)

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

Lovely patterns Joy.....one could say that I may have a little problem with patterns...what patterns am I drawn to...now that one is hard...usable, decorative, totally useless could never use it just not practical (lots of those)....LOL....I am probably partial to lap size quilts as I can then quilt them...

Anonymous said...

Hi Joy, you are sooo generous. I love the sewing caddy and could really do with one (I'm using shoe boxes).I usually like patterns for stuff that is useful and decorative at once. It can take a while for me to finish something, so I want to be able to use it. I love the new patterns for pre-cuts as cutting can take me a while sometimes. J-J

bubbachenille said...

What a great givaway, thanks so much for the chance to win. I have a collection of gorgeous patterns for my retirement! LOL I like bits and pieces patterns and bag patterns and would much rather a bed size quilt than a lap quilt or wall hanging.

Julie said...

What a lovely giveaway. Love to enter thankyou.
Now for the answers!!! I tend to buy patterns for smaller items like bags etc. I usually design my own quilts but don't have much of a clue when it comes to fiddlier things. I make all sorts of size quilts. As for pre-cuts I love just looking at them on the shelf in my sewing room, I really should buy two of everything, one for the shelf and one to use.

Kris Meares - Tag Along Teddies said...

Hey Joy-Belle! Oh! Your sewing goodies are GAWJUS! :0) Love them! Hmmm ... what patterns do I buy?!?! Not many any more, as not only do I design my own usually, I also have a backlog of patterns I "HAD" to have that I still haven't made up. I love making lap quilts or toppers that sit over a chair or at the end of a bed, ready to be pulled up and snuggled under with a book or just a kindy kip. Bear Hugs! KRIS

Wonky Girl said...

Actually I collect patterns, have two big tubs of patterns. Apron patterns, quilt patterns, tote patterns, patterns to make hats. Patterns to make just about anything crafty with a neadle and thread.
Love your fun blog and what a great give-away! Thank you bunches:)

Sheila said...

Hi Joy,
Love your projects , all of them , beautiful work and it sure would be nice to win these wonderful patterns.Thanks for the chance !

Cattinka said...

I really would like to be in the draw, your patterns are so nice.
As to your questions. I like to sew useless but pretty things, I am all into sewing Tilda designs these days.
I would like to make a really big quilt some day, but I am afraid of quilting...
Hugs

Micki said...

I love all the patterns, but esp. the sewing box. I usually like to make larger quilts rather than lap quilts. I usually buy patterns for quilts, but I also enjoy getting decorative items for the home.
I just love to sew!

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

There isn't much I don't like about quilting, but I'm finding myself looking for smaller projects that I can finish before I'm finished.....LOL.

Thanks for having the giveaway

Chriss said...

A fabulous giveaway,Joy. Thank you very much for being so generous.I like to make all sorts of things, especially useful things for other people. I love bags to carry my sewing in particularly. Also love to make quilts for my family and friends, they are such lovely people.Thanks for the chance to win.

Dix said...

I say that I am a quilter but I am obsessed with buying patterns for quilted purses, totes, bags of any kind.

Sharon said...

What a neat set of goodies to give away. I love patterns to make little gifts for friends and for bags and tablerunners. I love the precuts-so glad we're finally able to get patterns using them. Actually I think I'm as much a pattern addict as I am a fabric addict, lol.

Narelle said...

Lovely pattern giveaways!
I like to by patterns for useful things, gifts, bags and large quilts that take my fancy.
They're in my 'to do' box and one day I will be able to say 'ta da'.

Your giveaway patterns are beautiful. Love the sewing accessories especially.
I like to buy patterns for bags, accessories, and oh, any that really take my fancy.
The jelly rolls, and other precuts are so good - but the choices make it hard to decide which to buy.

Helen said...

I buy bag patterns and more bag patterns and then just a few more bag patterns..... yep -- I like making bags! I also love making sewing items just like your pattern, so I would be over the moon if I were to win a copy!

Thank you so much for the chance,

Happy Sewing!

Fantastic giveaway! Those patterns would look great made with my Rouenneries honeybun :-).
Thanks for the idea for the embroidered buttons. I looked at that 'thing' to make them this week, but I wondered if I would use it (more than once LOL). But thede little embroderies are too cute!

Gail said...

I love the sewing caddy. I usually buy patterns for unusual things-coasters made from cloth covered bottle tops, etc-as I have tons of quilt patterns! I like to make bed quilts but lately I've been doing a lot of baby quilts. I also like to make room accessories, pillow covers, table runners and such.

darcey said...

What a fun giveaway! I buy patterns for all things, but I tend to buy the ones that have that 'little something special' in the matter of design which I think is sooo pretty, that 'something' that makes the quilt one that I will remember.....you know what i mean?
All the best.

Oh I love the new pattern. When I buy a pattern I look for functionalitly, that it can be used and also I love patterns that use FQ's, because even if you have yardage you can make Fq's from them.

simplestitches said...

Great giveaway!
I just buy whatever pattern strikes me at the time...no rhyme or reason..I just like it!
Am always a bit stuck how to use pre cuts...so many ideas and not enough time....usually I make wall hangings, cushions or bags, got way too many quilts (of all sizes)
thanks for the chance to win your awesome prizes.

Hi Joy - would LOVE to win! You seem to come up with such cute ideas...

Sue said...

I'm in for a giveaway - the patterns I love to buy range from bags and quilts to stitcheries and cross stitch. I bought 2 cute cross stitch kits today at Spotlight where they were half price and the last quilt pattern was Big Blooms by Wendy Williams from Material Obsession.
BTW the sewing kit is just awsome

Great giveaway. I really like the sewing box!

Ruby said...

I have a varied interest in patterns. Recently bought some only because they were on sale for .99. I chose home decor, organizers and period costumes! I have several large quilts I want to do but mostly work small. Love pre-cuts and all the patterns for them.
