I heard you! Giveaway here on the blog!

Quilt #1: Hello Gorgeous

OK my lovely blog subscribers, a number of you entered my Facebook and Instagram giveaways but I also heard from some of you that you aren't on those sites and were feeling a little...left out! I can't have that, I like my blog to be a welcoming place, a happy place! So....one more giveaway? Problem solved!

Quilt #2: Good Night, Good Morning

Today I'm hosting a drawing for my new book Wedge Quilt Workshop and a 25" 9 degree Wedge Ruler from Doheny Publications. Marilyn Doheny generously offered this ruler for a giveaway to my readers! This ruler is great whether you want to make the quits in the book (6 of the patterns can be made with this ruler) or if you want to design your own quilts. This 9 degree ruler is the one I got started with and it's so fun to play around with. The packaging alone has SO MUCH info about working with wedges!

Quilt #3: The Three of Us

The rules (follow the rules so you can win!)
1) All entries must be on my blog post (that means you enter on my website. Replying to my emailed blog post doesn't count! Click the link!)
2) To enter, leave a comment telling me which quilt in this post is most your style (by name or number). I'm curious what speaks to you!
3) I will post anywhere in the world, so you can enter no matter where you live.
4) The giveaway will be open until February 17. I will choose a winner at random and email them for their address.

Quilt #4: Pop Art


I'm busy getting ready for a week away at QuiltCon. I'll be teaching 5 classes there, lots of work that doesn't feel like work at all! Really looking forward to connecting with far flung quilt folk and soaking up some sunshine. The first buds are on the magnolias and the Daphne is blooming on my front porch, I'm so invigorated that spring is on the way!

UPDATE: Comments are now closed and a winner has been drawn by random number generator, and it's Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting! Thank you for the entries everyone!

I also love quilt #2 best - but they're all wonderful! No need to enter me in the giveaway - I have my lovely (signed) copy right by my chair where I can look at it often!

Ray and Jeanne said...

Sandy said...

I love #2 (Good Night, Good Morning), but #3 (The Three of Us) is coming in a close second!

Alice Ronne said...

Definitely quilt #4. Looks challenging and love the color selection. Thanks for the giveaway! akronne17@gmail.com

Audrey said...

Thank you so much for offering this giveaway. I was one of those disappointed that previously entries were only on facebook or Instagram. My favourite quilt is Pop Art but I am also very drawn to Sea of Serenity and Diamond Chain found in your book.

Havplenty said...

Wishing you the best at Quiltcon. I plan to attend in the near future. The #2 quilt would be my first choice. I do like #4 the optical illusion quilt though sometimes the optics can be hard on the eyes.

cathy said...

#4 pops off the page. An optical illusion that dances.
Thank you for offering this giveaways.

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

YES!! I'm one of the ones who was feeling LEFT out - LOL. Thanks for giving us a chance to win, too!! I really like #4 - Pop Art - but it makes me dizzy - so I think I'll go with #2 - Good Night, Good Morning - ;))

Laura said...

I like "The Three of Us". Thanks for the opportunity to win the giveaway. Have fun at QuiltCon

GranChris said...

I really like #3. It looks like fun. Jmikebalou (at) aol (dot) com

eileen said...

Eileen ekmvalencia@gmail.com

kimberlier said...

Quiltcon!!! Yay!! Eye candy and lots of learning. :) i love quilt 4. It really pops, catches my eye and it's really uncommon.

Anita said...

I love quilt 2, Good night,good morning!

Frances Meredith said...

I love quilt #4 Pop Art as it reminds me of the work of the British artist Bridget Riley. Have a great QuiltCon.

Marlene said...

Thanks for the giveaway Christina. I am going to be different and go with Hello Gorgeous- love the bright colours and opportunity to try differnt quilt designs in the wedges.

Marie-Claude said...

I love #1! All those vibrant colours together! But they’re all lovely.

Lauren said...

I have half a top just like #2 waiting for quilting inspiration, but #4 is more my style these days.

Pamela Arbour said...

I like them all, but I think quilt #4 would be the first I would make.

Ray Hoefer said...

Quilt #2 - Good Night, Good Morning. I love your creative twist with the colors and one ray of sunshine reaching out.

Donette said...

I like #1, love all the colors.

Ann Simpson said...

I love them all, but #2 Good Night Good Morning is my favorite!

Jessica said...

I love quilt #1 the most!

Grace said...

I like #2! They're all lovely! Thank you!

Rusty said...

My favorite is quilt #2. I like the splits in the background and also in the wedges. Looks happy. If I were to make a quillt out of your book, this would be a close tie with no 1 as I would like to make no 1 as a color wheel.

Michele T said...

Ooooh! I love #2... it would be the one I’d love to make!

Stitchin At Home said...

My fav is quilt #2. Thanks for a chance to win.

quiltingmimi said...

#2 is my favorite. Thanks for the giveaway.

Penny said...

I like #2 quilt, Good Night, Good Morning. I would love to make it. Thank you for the chance to win.

MaryAnn Guappone said...

I really like quilt #2, Good night, good morning. It is fabulous.

bmr35 said...

I like #3. I am only new to quilting, so it would definitely be one to try. It is like a piece of art!

Krista Wells said...

Hello Gorgeous is my favourite. Thanks for the chance to win.

Julie in GA said...

It's a tough choice, but I will go with #3--I love the movement in the design!

QuiltE said...

#2 Good Morning Good Night is my favourite. How you quilted it is really what sold me, I think. Close second though to #4 Pop Art .... though I think I would go for something a little less poppish, and more subdued colours.

Thanks for hearing our pleas! I too am another who is disappointed when I see options where I cannot participate. Also, am delighted to be included when I am non-USA. Another where so many of us are excluded from the fun and feel totally left out and unwanted. Bless You for your inclusivity!!!

Quiltsmiles said...

I love #2 , Good Night, Good Morning the most. I though all three compositions work beautifully I smile at that Errand slice escaping into their own happy space.
Have a wonderful Valentines Day and thanks for hosting this sweet fantastic giveaway, Marilyn Doherty too.

Quiltsmiles said...

That’s is Marilyn Doheny too.

Barb said...

All of the quilts are stunning but my favorite is #2. Crazeematz@gmail.com

Irene Wright said...

I love #3. It’s appears simple but all that quilting I like when it looks like it’s simple but when you look close it’s involved I love learning from you you give a lot of confidence to try

Home Sewn By Us said...

Hi Christina,
I think quilt #3, The Three of Us speaks to me the most. While I like the others, there is just something special about this quilt. ~smile~ Roseanne

JanetD said...

I love #2- it's so cute and I love the one wedge sticking out! Such whimsy and attitude!! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Janice Hume said...

I like #2 Good Night, Good Morning and I love your teaching style. Thanks for this offer as I am just in the 'mulling over' stage of trying to work with wedges!

DeborahGun said...

Thanks for a generous blog giveaway. I love quilt number 2. I think it is the contrast that appeals to me.

jec said...

thanks for allowing us to enter through the blog...i have to go with #2...to me it has a "beachy" feel....the sky and the deep blue sea...i love it....thanks for the chance to win...i sure hope it is me :) janet jecagain@gmail.com

Gene Black said...

I really love Quilt #2: Good Night, Good Morning - I loved it the first time I saw it.

LethargicLass said...

I think I would have to go with #2, Good night, Good Morning. It catches my eye and stays playing around in my brain.

Jo said...

Hi, thanks for looking out for those of us who don't do FB. My fave quilt is Good Night, Good Morning. I love how it plays with warm/cool colors, and has that one wedge that's a bit late to the party.

Jill said...

I just love love love Good Night Good Morning's layout and the cool color palette, but I'm really drawn to the palette in The Three of Us too! Thanks for the chance to win!

Jennifer Gail said...

#3 is my fav.

Carol W said...

#4 Pop Art. It is so unique!

MaryBeth Little said...

I like the top quilt (like a dresden plate). Thanks for the giveaway.

Florence Burton said...

It is actually a toss up between Good Night, Good Morning and The Three of Us! Thank you for the chance to win! quiltingflo315@gmail.com

Renee Galloway said...

I like the top “Hello Gorgeous “ quilt. It reminded me of a color wheel at first glance. Thanks for thinking of everyone😉

Vicki in MN said...

Wow that was a hard decision! But I think #2.

poorfarm said...

Love Good Night, Good Morning - I have a thing for the sun!!!!

Kat Campau said...

I am attracted to the energy of quilt no. 4, Pop Art. I want to make my own.

Nancy in IN said...

Good Night, Good Morning spoke to me.

Linda Williamson said...

I love your Pop Art Quilt. Thanks for the giveaway. grinnie1961 @ gmail dot com

Cheryl said...

They are all beautiful but my favorite is Quilt #2: Good Night, Good Morning

Kathryn said...

Thanks for the chance to win the ruler! Of the quilts in this post, I think that Good Night, Good Morning is most like my style (which has evolved from traditional quilts). I love the blue fields of colour with the soothing moon beams and energizing sun rays.

Cherib104 said...

I think it's the Three of us I like best....but then again Good Night Good morning songs to me as well
Cheri

Susan said...

I like them all, but #3 is my favorite. #1 is my second favorite.

Joni said...

I have had Good Night, Good Morning on my inspiration board for a while now, they are all stunning and would probably end up making them all eventually. Thanks for letting us bloggees play along!

Chris Cole said...

I love “Good Night, Good Morning”.

Janet said...

I like #4 POP ART.....the wedge ruler looks like a great tool with great possibilities!!!

Sandra Walker said...

You are SUCH a sweetheart. :-) Good Night Good Morning. I'm a nature lover, a sun and moon worshipper, and blue is my favourite colour! A very close second is The Three of Us. Thanks Christina!

Joyce said...

Quilt #4 - love it! Thanks for this giveaway. Heartscreations@outlook.com

CountryGal said...

Thank you for this giveaway - love all the quilts but I think it is #1 that I would make first - Hello Gorgeous!!

Ophelia said...

I love number two. I only need the ruler though, because when I bought a ruler after I bought your book, I choose the 10°. Was that a mistake? I want to make some of these 9° quilts too!

Rose in IN said...

Wow, they are all gorgeous, but my favorite is #2! Thanks!!

Farm Quilter said...

What a difficult choice to make! I would honestly like to make all 4 quilts, but I think The Three of Us would be a blast to make! Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

works4me said...

Thank you for doing this for us. I like #2 Good Night, Good Morning. I am a fan of the positive/negative feel of it, plus that one ray a little off from the rest. That would be me. :)

Wendy P said...

I like Good Night. It is unusual and thought provoking!

Sherry VF said...

I love the style of #3, The Three of Us, and what a cute name. I would probably make this quilt in a different color scheme though. Love the variation in size and the offset placment of the 'wheels.' sjvonfumetti at yahoo dot com

Marty said...

Contrast is what I most enjoy in quilts, so my favorite of the four depicted is Quilt #2: Good Night, Good Morning.

virgdale said...

Love all of the quilts pictured, but #3 speaks to me. Thanks for the giveaway.

windsong said...

Hi Christina, Quilt #2 is the one that melted my heart. :) I love your books and classes. Thank you!!!

The Colorful Fabriholic said...

Ooooh, I like #3 "The Three of Us" best, so pretty! So many possibilities with wedge designs! Best wishes for a successful and fun teaching run at QuiltCon.

Joy said...

Good Night, Good Morning. Love the simplicity of it. Thanks for the chance to win!

Shaneka Giscombe said...

I love pop art.

Karen Granoff said...

They are all so beautiful, but if I had to choose a favorite it would be no. 4:

Donna said...

Hello Gorgeous is definitely my style. I love simple designs and have been wanting to make a color wheel quilt. All are lovely though!

Diana said...

Number 4 is my favorite. Can see it in bright colors!

Beverly R. Rigler said...

Quilt 4 for sure. I've been away from quilting for a few years and this would surely motivate me. I also bought some fm supplies to do some of your designs. I've been practicing on paper. Thanks, Beverly

Sarah Lynne said...

#2 is the quilt that I'm drawn to the most. I like negative space and the 'slices' of the background fabric within each wedge. thanks!

Kathy said...

Such an awesome giveaway!! Thank you for having one for your blog readers. I'm one of those who don't use the other sites and I've been wanting a wedge ruler for a long time. I like #3, The Three of Us. The first thing I thought of when I saw it was myself and my two grandbaby girls that I've been waiting so long for! And I had to chuckle when I read 'far flung quilt folk' . . . do you know that's quite a tongue twister! :o)

Brenda Perry said...

I love them all, so it's difficult to choose one. Number 3,"The Three of Us" is most my style today. Tomorrow I might choose #2 or #1!!

Crystal_235 said...

I love them all, but if I had to choose just one of them I would say #3. I would love to win a copy of your book. Thanks for the chance.

Rilene said...

#2 Good night, good morning. This quilt doesn't seem as busy as the others. I would love to have it on my wall. It reminds me of "The Little Prince" by St-Exupery!

pennylanequilts said...

Love Pop Art! I'm getting ready for QC, too. Only a week away!😊

dicca85 said...

Hello gorgeous is my favorite....

Judy said...

Happy Valentine's Day Christina. Seriously in love with Good Night Good Morning and would love to have a copy of your book. Congratulations on such success with your quilting. What a way to make a living! Judy

Kristen Willard said...

I love Pop Art, but I really want to make the blue wedge toward the end of the book.

Donna W said...

The "3 of Us" is speaking to me. Love the shading of the colors and the movement I see.

Essian said...

#4 all the way! I loooove the geometry and symmetry!

Mónica said...

I like #2 the best. I like the hues of gold to represent the sun and the pale neutral rays as the moon, the contrasting blues as the day and night skies, and all the quilting. I also like how the rays are interrupted at different lengths.
I wish I was much, much closer to be able to attend Quiltcon and take any of your classes life!

Dee Dee said...

Pop Art speaks to me. Its beautiful!

Nancy L said...

I love quilt #2 the most.

Mary Howland said...

I like them all but #3 is my favorite.

Lynda said...

I really like quilt #2 - there are so many possibilities to use different fabrics and possibly scraps as well - I am really being drawn to more modern looking quilts.

Susan Stanton said...

Quilt # 4, Pop Art. They all look awesome though!

I love quilt 4 Pop Art!

Monika said...

#2 Good night, good morning is my favourite for now - but I have been known to change my mind:) Thanks for the opportunity to enter the give away :) Summery greetings from New Zealand

Barb said...

I love them all but would pick #2 or 3. I love both designs but the colours in Good Night, Good Morning appeal to me more.

bumblebee53 said...

i love #1 and #2 the best; i tend to like big bold motifs - and loving prints as i do, i'd love to try these with some prints!

Marti M said...

My first choice is #2 closely followed by #4.

jane said...

Pop Art is my favourite

mac said...

Good night, good morning is my favourite. Thanks for the giveaway.

Fribble said...

I like Good Night, Good Morning the best. Pop Art comes in second. Thanks for the giveaway on your blog. I didn't complain, but I'm not on Facebook and seldom go to Instagram.

Barbara said...

I'm torn between 3 and 4. I'd live to win the book. I've never made a wedge quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

LeAnne said...

Quilt #2. I like that little bit of random.

Fiona said...

thank you Christina for thinking of us bloggers... I do love your quilts - my favourite is Good Night, Good Morning.... I just love the one cheeky ray ....
Hugz

Quilt #2 Good Night Good Morning really captured my attention. It's right up my alley! Thanks for the chance to win.

jrwork said...

Hello gorgeous has my vote. Lots of color.

Ann P said...

Love all these quilts but my fav is #2 Good night, Good Morning.

Liz Horgan said...

All of the quilts are beautiful--took a minute for my eyes to adjust to Pop Art, but then I liked it!
But I think I like The Three of Us best!

Sewgirl said...

I am a fan of quilt #3...I like the negative space around the spirals.

Janet Hageman said...

I like quilt #2 Good night, Good morning the most, with #4 being second, but if I made that one I would use different colors. Love your Craftsy classes!

Lisa J. said...

I like good night good morning. I like how open it is and I love the red piece that is leaping out to the left.

Denise said...

My favorite is Pop Art. I love quilts with strong lines and a sense of movement.

Sue said...

Love the broken wedges in quilt 2. Thanks for the chance to win!

kitty said...

Your #4 Pop Art quilt is my favourite here for its optical effects. My other favourite in your book Is the Sea of Serenity for its stubborn directionality.
Love the book: lots of inspiration!!

karen said...

Quilt #2 Good Night, Good Morning is beautifully conceived and quilted--that's my favorite. Thanks for the chance to enter!

Susan W said...

Love the effect of #3 The Three of Us. Colors are beautiful together.

Preeti said...

Oh Christina, none of these are my style. I work with squares and rectangles and sometimes venture into HSTs. I guess I really really need your book. Now, only if I could win the giveaway ;-)
When I get the book, I'd start with Hello Gorgeous because she seems the simplest to attempt.

KaHolly said...

Have lots of fun at QuiltCon, honey! Love your creations, esp. those first two. Your book is at the tippity top of my wish list! XO

Tabitha Keener said...

I really love #4 Pop Art! Thanks for a chance and have fun this week!

tdkcarpenoctem@hotmail.com

QuiltShopGal said...

All of your designs are beautiful. Hard to pick a FAV: Quilt #2: Good Night, Good Morning or Quilt #4: Pop Art or...all the rest. again, difficult to pick a Fav and I'm sure it would be difficult to only make one of your quilts from this new book.

Dixie said...

I love #2, Good Night,Good Morning! Because I love to snuggle under a quilt at night. And I love to wake up in the morning to a new day filled with quilting adventures waiting to start!

nicolesender said...

Quilt #3: The Three of Us is my favorite and more my style! All are awesome!
nikilsend(at)outlook(dot)com

grannydo4me said...

I am really struck by Good night, Good morning. I like all of them but that's the one that yelled at me! I love your blog and your quilting tips.

Maureen Clare said...

Definitely number 4 Pop Art. I seems to be moving as I look at it. Very clever . I love illusional quilts like that. I hope I have entered this giveaway correctly

Arlene Delloro said...

I would have to say #1, Hello, Gorgeous, is most appealing to me. Love your Craftsy classes and your books.

Louisa Robertson said...

So hard to choose a favourite! I would probably start with #4 -- it is gorgeous in controlled fabrics, but what might happen with scraps?

Jasmine said...

I love quilt number 1. Probably because the quilting looks like so much fun. Quilt number 3 is a close second. Thanks!

Jane Charnley said...

I really feel drawn to Quilt 2 because I love the colours and the idea of opposites!

Katrina said...

I love #1!! Thanks for the giveaway :-)

Pamela said...

I like the complexity and deco vibes of of Pop Art! Thanks for sharing these beautiful quilts and for the great giveaway!

Shirley in Canada said...

Kathryn said...

quilt #2 is one I can see making myself.

kupton52 said...

#3- The Three of Us is the quilt I'd most like to make. They are all very nice but this is the one that "speaks" to me. Thank you for the giveaway and remembering those of us who are not (or who have left as I did) social media. Blessings.....

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

I almost missed this (in Alaska awaiting the birth of my first grandbaby). I like #2 &#4 best. Fun quilts. Thanks for the chance.

Lois Kelly said...

#4 Pop Art is my favorite. Love wedge quilts.

Deborah Kelley said...

Christine B. said...

Hi Christina! My favourite is quilt number one 'Hello Gorgeous' and it is gorgeous! Christine x

Julie Beard said...

I'm reconsidering whether I'll watch your class in my seven day free trial of craftsy.com. Have been a big fan of craftsy since it started and have 56 classes.I have my favourites though. Your class my become a favourite, as I like several of your designs. So I'm now off to watch your class while I'm making my first crazy quilt using silks, velvets and silk rayons. I have learnt one thing since I've started my wall hanging, is that I don't like slippery and very shiny fabrics as they do not sit still!! Even with pins! Thank goodness this wall hanging is a miniature because I'm sewing it by hand now! Thanks for the opportunity to watch your video and a opportunity to win your wonderful book!

Linda Rouse said...

I love quilt 2. I have never made anything using a wedge but is on my bucket list of quilting trys. I am in a slump right now just out of the hospital and need some new motivation. Would love to win.

vivoaks said...

I like "The Three of Us" best, I think, although #4 comes in a close second! They're all gorgeous, and I've thought of doing a wedge quilt for quite some time....just not far enough up on my to-do list yet! :-) Thanks so much for the chance to win!!! Blessings!! Vivian - wvoaks at comcast dot net.

Amy said...

I like all four, but the one I'd make is Hello Gorgeous. The rainbow brightness, positive message and sunshine design make me want to start now.

Swedish Scrapper said...

I really love The Three of US! But the quilting in Hello Gorgeous is delightful too........HAve a great time at QuiltCon! One day I'll go too :)

sandinmyshoes said...

Quilt #2, "Good Night, Good Morning" speaks to me the loudest. Honestly, I love ALL wedge quilts.

Hitch and Thread said...

Oh that is a tough question! Quilt 1. No, quilt 2. No, quilt 1. 2, 1, 2,... I can't decide! Judge rules.... It's a tie between quilt 1 and 2!!

Lee said...

Great quilts - I love especially the good night, good morning quilt!
