YES!! Straight from the good folks at Quiltmaker Magazine, this is your chance to win the pattern and fabric kit for the Winter Critters Quilt featured in the Nov/Dec 11 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine!

    I am so in love with this quilt! The style is fantastic and that little raccoon is so cute it makes up for how scared I am of raccoons in real life. πŸ™‚ Super creative.

    omg…you do have adorable patterns. I have your halloween and love them. ….were does the inspiration come from?

    keep them coming!!!!!

    Can you do a parakeet? They have soo much personality and if anyone could capture that my vote is on you!

  29. October 12, 2011 2:18 pm

    ohmygoodness, awesome giveaway! you already know how excited i am about this pattern – i’m dying to play with it! i think i told you that a friend of mine is having a baby soon, and her “theme” is canadian wilderness/forest animals, so this would be so perfect for her! AND she’s a crafty sewer herself, so she will totally appreciate the work required for paperpieced quilt, and the fact that the pattern is designed by another canadian!

    i looked for the new issue of quiltmaker at the grocery store, but it wasn’t there yet. i’ll be stalking the magazine section until it comes, but i didn’t realize that i had to wait until february for the second part… patience is not my strongest skill!

  30. October 12, 2011 2:38 pm

    your patterns are so cute and creative…i’m a beginner so it may be over my head but i’d love to try this. thanks!
