Giving Thanks Quilters' Blog Hop Party

It's here, the Giving Thanks Quilters' Blog Hop Party organized by Michele of Quilting Gallery.


This giveaway has ended.

Each participating blog has a giveaway. 
You leave a comment on each blog you visit. 
Your comment is your entry into the drawing for the giveaway on that blog. 
You can find the list of blogs via the link above.

My giveaway consists of two quilt patterns. One for a "woven" Christmas Stocking and another for a "woven" potholder. Below are photos of the stockings and the potholder I made. 
These are great to do up in seasonal colors, school colors, someone's favorite colors, etc. 
I made two green and white stockings and gave them to my niece and her boyfriend who went to Michigan State. One was green with white outline and the other white with green outline.

The potholders can be made to match kitchen color schemes or seasonal decor. 

At 1:45 PM today, I added the patterns to my Patchwork Breeze storefront at PatternSpot.com. They are reasonably priced, if you are interested in obtaining either or both of the patterns. 




On November 29 26, I will randomly select TWO winners from the comments left on my blog. And they will both win the TWO PDF patterns, which will be emailed anywhere in the world.

So leave a comment on my blog to the question: What two colors would you use to "weave" either one of these quilt projects (the stockings or the potholder)?

I need a way to contact you. So make sure you leave an email address in the comment if it isn't attached to your identity. Anonymous comments go to my spam folder. 

I hope you come back during the Blog Hop to see what projects I have to share with you.

I would make the potholder in blue and silvery white and then again in red and white for valentines day. Looks like a great pattern to always have a fresh seasonal kitchen

Ooohhh! These are so pretty!

Amy's Crafty Shenanigans said...

Wow - any colour really! I am partial to green and crisp white though :) Gorgeous!

Nichole A. said...

I would use black and red for the potholder. Reason is - I moved a few months ago, and the potholders I received in a swap a year or so ago - all but one got lost! It is black background with cherries on it, so the black/red would accent it very well!

I would use red and green for Christmas stockings for my niece and her husband's first Christmas together.
