giveaway: gracie lane quilts

am a lover of handmade quilts..
this giveaway is one i'm thrilled about.



last weekend i was delighted to have a pile of darling quilts to pass out to my darlings to bundle up for movie night. (i may not have enough room for everyone to get a proper seat, but heavens, they will be swaddled in something pretty!) over the years i've been spoiled with a collection of fine stitchery. all thanks to my cousin abby, the quilting queen and owner of gracie lane. i especially love the fact that her shop has both material and kits for those of you who love to sew and pre-made table runners and quilts for those of us who wish we could. this one is a new favorite and this beauty belongs in a museum somewhere.

even if we weren't blood relatives, i'd still be bias (i cannot sew, but i can make inside jokes like i do) toward her fabulous taste in fabric and awesome attention to detail. today abby is generously offering two prizes for two readers.

prize one All Stars Fat Quarter Bundle by Riley Blake
a set of 7 coordinating fabrics to craft up your own creation



prize two Christmas Star Quilt 32 x 32 (already handmade!)
this quilt is a perfect size for a holiday table top, a wall hanging or a baby's room.


want a chance at one of these prizes? simply leave a comment to enter to win. i usually don't like giveaway gimmicks, but since this is a biggie, am making an exception. as a little bonus, if you blog or tweet a link to gracie lane you can make another comment!! (two comment entries max per person.) be sure to link your blog or leave an email so i can contact you. return to this post saturday night when the random winners will be announced.

congratulations
the winner of the All Stars Fat Quarter Bundle is Micayla
the winner of the Christmas Star Blanket is Cody and Hanna

exclusive discount. when you enter Mwrites in the notes to seller section at checkout, gracie lane will refund the total shipping charges of your order! keep in mind, abby is expecting her second bouncing baby boy in only a few weeks, so order your quilted christmas gifts early.

thank you, abby!

Sarah N said...

i'm not trying to enter twice...just wanted to tell you i just bought a quilt for my sister and her future hubby! i've been wanting sooo badly to make one for them as a wedding gift, but with an almost-one-year-old and a bun in the oven, the thought of carving out enough time for such a wonderful gift is terrifying. so i found a handmade-with-love quilt that was just what i was looking for. how wonderful! thanks, gracie lane! just to make my double-post kosher, i'll link to her shop on my blog. :)

Liv said...

I just received a quilt from my husband's Aunt that belonged to her grandmother. It's not in great condition, but it's a treasure for sure. I think quilts are just a great thing to save and share with the people you love.

mrsfussypants said...

Wow. That is amazing. What a gift!

Scott and Melissa said...

I love these fabrics!! What a great giveaway!!! I would love to sew up something beautiful from this for my new little bun in the oven!!!

Jen said...

Those are beautiful quilts! I need to learn to quilt like that!

Amanda P. said...

I love to quilt. One of my goals for 2010 is to make my own quilt.

jeffrey said...

i'm happy to say that i've actually quilted a quilt - i used it as a bedspread all through high school!

Scott and Melissa said...

myra.christensen said...

My mother didn't sew, I don't sew and because of that I feel so awkward at the RS enrichment craft days.(yuck) My husbands grandmother did and so the few quilts we got from her I cherished. The first one I didn't know better and used and now it's ruined, the second one I kept to look at only. It amazes me that someone can create something so beautiful.

MYSUESTORIES said...

Gorgeous quilt!!!!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

crissy said...

I wish I did, but I don't really sew. I think I'd ask my mother-in-law to help me put together the diy quilt. What fun that will be. :)
