Two for You and Two for Me! (a giveaway!)


Since my Jamestown Landing project has gotten my mind planted in the Blue & White zone, I thought I’d use some blue & white fat quarters for my giveaway on the Quilters Blog Hop Party.  Of course, there went my goal to only use what I had but I’m going to try really, really hard to have these be the only fabrics I buy for the Jamestown Landing! 

So, it’s one set for the winner and one for me which will make us sort of “quilt siblings” or maybe cousins or perhaps just quilters who love fabric which is pretty much all of us!  In order to win, leave me a comment on what project you’ve been wanting to make just for youself and why.  I’ll pull a random winner on the last day of the blog hop.  In the meantime, it’s back to cutting triangles for my Jamestown Landing…I’ve already used almost all my neutrals and need to cut more!

Happy quilting!

  47. Jenelle Boxberger

  48. Well, we may be related 🙂 as I love this Jamestown fabric too! I have a few things on my list for me that I don’t ever seem to get a’roun too…a new scrub top for work (I’m a nurse), a tablecloth and one of those cute snap bags 🙂 Thanks for a fun giveaway!

    Nice to meet you and nice block. I loved your into page. I like that you slip a 15 minutes of quilting in as time allows too.

  59. A quilt for my own bed!

  60. I love this fabric….I want to make a tree quilt…I don’t know what to really call it…the leaves are for all the friends and family in my life over the last nearly 60 years. That is my big want to…but I have a lot of small ones…right now I made my first rag quilt and I love it. Thanks for being so generous.

  61. I am still waiting to make myself a blue and white mariners compass quilt for my bedroom. I painted the walls blue and the trim white years ago with the intention of having a blue and white quilt on the bed. I suppose they delay is that I am still in the process of collecting blue and white fabrics… yeah lets say that. 🙂

  62. I’ve been wanting to make another triple Irish chain quilt (because my mother took mine back to TN about 20 years ago, and I haven’t seen it since–guess it evaporated) so I thought I’d do it in violets and white and now I see Minick & Simpson’s post about their new line, and I’m thinking maybe another blue and white one after all.
    Thanks for helping me find your blog!

  63. Lovely fabric….thankyou.

  64. Beautiful fabric. I’ve been wanting to make a swoon block…these might just be what I’m looking for!

  67. I’ve been waiting to make a Halloween wall hanging just for me! (but first I need to finished some commissioned pieces including a giant squid!)

  73. I always give away or sell the things I make. I want o make a quilt for me..

  76. Umm, I haven’t thought about making something for myself. That’s a huge question. It would be fun to have a quilted duvet cover with thin batting for our bed so I can wash and dry it quickly and easily. (Our dog likes to sleep near our feet, hence the need to wash often). Your are offering beautiful fabrics. I’m looking forward to seeing your finished Jamestown Landing!

  77. I’ve been wanting to make a scrap quilt for myself. I’ve just started, but I’m not sure that I have enough scraps yet.

  84. I’ve been meaning to make a sewing machine cover and also a Christmas blanket for the fam. They just keep getting pushed down the list.

  92. I have been waiting on making a quilt for our bed, I made quilts for my kids, my grand kids, my new great nieces and nephews, and many for my charity group, so it is my turn, I am working on a fall quilt just for me..

  93. Love the fabrics! Thanks for chance to win! 🙂

    I’d love to make a quilt for our bed! But would settle for a new tote/purse for me! LOL

  94. I’ve been wanting to make new curtains. winterwrens at gmail dot com

  95. I have a blue and white and cream quilt just waiting for these fabrics:)

  96. I have a t-shirt quilt that I would love to create eventually. I would also love to make a t-shirt rug.

  97. I’ve been wanting to make a quilt entirely out of hexagons for myself. Or, any quilt for that matter if it is for me. I tend to give mine all away. I love doing that, but sometimes I want to snuggle up in my own work of art!

  98. I am working on a blue & white sampler star quilt & these fabrics would be nice to add to it. Thanks for the chance.

  99. I want to make a queen size quilt for my bed. I just keep getting distracted by have-to and need-a-gift projects.

  100. My favorite colors are blue, my kitchen is blue and Yellow, and one of our bedrooms is blue. You have the perfect fabric for me. I would probably make a new table topper for our table with those. Thanks for the chance to win, hope I am lucky.

  101. I haven’t made anything for myself in years but I’ve been thinking of making a bag as mine is falling apart. All the pretty fabrics and great patterns have been urging me on! Thank you for the giveaway.

  102. Thanks for the lovely giveaway. These fabrics would fit into a queen quilt project that I’m working upon right now – Appomatox Courthouse with modifications. Blue is my favorite color too.

  103. some years ago I bought a Christmas panel, I love that fabric but I still didn’t touch it because I am afraid to make a abig mistake and ruin it!

  105. What pretty fabric!! I really, really want to make myself a quilt. I’ve made several to give away but don’t have one of my own yet!
    Happy quilting!

  106. I need to make myself and sewing kit for my cross stitch because I carry it every where.

  107. Now that I think about it, I don’t sew alot just for myself. My projects that don’t look as great as I want them to for someone else, I keep for me. It would be nice to make a skirt or fun top.

  108. I’ve been wanting to do a Farmer’s Wife quilt. I grew up on a farm and loved it, but we left when I was 13. Maybe that’s why I loved it. I wasn’t old enough to have had the reality of the hard work sink in. To me it was all fun – ha. anyway, I started that quilt but had a new baby and wasn’t able to devote any time to it, so it got shelved. One of these days I’m going to have to pull it back out.

  109. Oh darn! 😦 I had an entire comment filled out and then clicked the follow button and it wiped my comment out I think. If this is a 2nd comment from me, please feel free to delete this one although I don’t see the other.

    Anyway, what I want to make for myself is a beautiful purple and blue lap quilt to use in the van while out travelling in the winter. My husband is always hot and I’m always cold because of my meds I take. I hate having the heat up high to keep me warm as I feel really guilty but, he does it because he feels bad for me. I, on the other hand want to make it nicer for him since he surely can’t take his clothes off to cool off while driving without us possibly having one of those nice cars with the red lights on top stopping us. LOL If I had that lap quilt then he could lower the heat and stay cool while I would be nice and toasty warm.

    I also LOVE Dresden quilts and want to make one of those for myself too, but I never get around to making things for myself. I love making things for others much more.

    I really do love the fabrics you are so nicely giving away and admit that I’ve never seen that line before. I need to search that one out and check the other fabrics from that line out now because those are gorgeous. Thank you.

  110. I would love to make a dresden plates quilt for myself. I am a beginner quilter…so this is a bit aways.

  133. This is so unbelievable. I am now working on a blue and white queen-sized quilt for our bed. I have always wanted to make a quilt. It just makes that quilt more special knowing I made it and it comes from love. Your blue and white fat quarters would be used to make pillows. Great idea – 2 for you and 2 for me.
