I would like to give some things away!

Well, I found the "Oldest Old Hag!" The oldest UFO ever! I cut out these triangles more than a decade ago, wanting to make a pyramid quilt...I just today put some together in the pyramids...and have decided that this is not fun for me. So....would you like to have the balance of the triangles already cut out and ready to sew??
What? You mean you do not put your cut out pieces into your largest mixing bowl...and then wonder where the bowl went to? Hmmmmm....Well, the prize is....all these pieces, already cut out, ready to sew. If you are interested, please leave a comment!

Excuse the poor picture, but this table runner kit is also up for grabs. All the wool and the pattern is included...so just leave a comment stating which project you are interested in, and I will draw for a name on the first of October.


Have a great day, all!!!

Monica said...

I can't believe you're giving them both away. I'd happily take either one off your hands because I love both wool and triangles.

Pat said...

My preference would be for the Halloween table runner. The triangles look a bit "daunting" to me...so I'd prefer the "haunting" prize instead! LOL

Caron Mosey said...

I'd love your triangles! Yes, please! Great colors and fabrics!!!

Andrea said...

I would love the runner kit as I've never worked with wool and it looks fun. I wish you hadn't shown those triangles as now I am eyeing up my 60 degree ruler thinking mmmmmm - lol xxx

Loris said...

Those triangles look like fun to me :-) Thanks for sharing!

Linda said...

Julie, I would like to have that table runner. My daughter-in-law LOVES Halloween, so I'd like to make that table runner for her.

AnnieO said...

Wow, that is a lot of triangles. Where on earth did you find the mixing bowl full of them, lol!

I love the wool kit. Thanks for the chance to win it!

Janet O. said...

I love the triangles! I hope you are going to make a top using those pyramids you have out on your design floor. Even solid colors between them would be beautiful. Love those warm, rich colors!

Sara said...

No, I haven't stored projects in mixing bowls, but thanks for the suggestion!

I'd put the triangles to use if I had them.

Terry said...

That's a cute tablerunner, but I'd really love to have those triangles! Thanks for the chance! :0)

LesQuilts said...

Hi Julie! I save those clear plastic containers from the produce section special lettuces come in, they are great for the small pieces until you get the blocks all done!
I'd love a crack at the Hallowe'en runner! It is very cute!
Thanks, Leslie

Barb said...

I love Halloween and wool and have nothing like that! I would love the wool Halloween table runner! Thank you so much for the chance!

SueB said...

I would love the chance. I love triangles. Love them both so either one to win would be awesome.

Leah said...

Thanks for offering the giveaway, the triangles are lovely. All the different fabrics you used are wonderful!

mariebeers said...

No thanks on the triangles, already made a small quilt like that and didn't like it. Now the wool, my favorite.

pam Doerge said...

I like both, but would prefer the wool kit. Thanks for the chance to win!

Carol said...

those triangles are great! love the fabrics and colors! and your layout is great and one I have not tried. you are smart in just getting rid of something you know you would never do and "treat" someone else.

Deborah in Atlanta said...

I like both options - Not sure what size your triangles are, so I'm not sure what I'd have to add to it, but I think that would be my first choice. But if the first name you pull wants the triangles, and I'm the second name, I'd be very very satisfied with the wool runner.

Karen said...

Not sure if you'll send to Canada but I just love the table runner. I love Hallowe'en as it's my mom's birthday and I make her something halloweeny every year.....Karen

Jill said...

kt said...

I would love either of these patterns. Although the triangles appeal more.
They would make a great quilt for snuggling on the couch with my children.

All those fun triangles in the mixing bowl - how fun.

WOW! Are those Thimbleberries fabrics I see. They look very familiar to me. I'd love to be gifted your bowl of triangles. Thanks for being sooooo generous! ;->

Darcie said...

Heaven knows that I certainly do not need any more UFOs! What a fun give-away for someone though...you're so giving, Jules.

I was just trying to do a little catching up on blogs this morning. Seems I scroll through on my reader and rarely take the time to stop for a chat.

I am so elated to hear that your dear sweet husband is on the road to tremendous health and happiness! Blessings to you both!!!

Sending love and hugs....

I think the triangles look amazing. I'd love to put them together :-)

Mommarock said...

I have never worked with wool, and find this would be a fantastic opportunity to do so. Thanks for a great giveaway opportunity!

Diane said...

I've never sewn triangles & I'd love the chance. Thanks! :)

Karen said...

No UFO's needed at my house. I was making a quilt a long time ago with those kind of triangles. I felt it was too busy and not really my style. Gave them away.
I have never used a mixing bowl but that is an idea. The bowl doesn't get used that much anyhow.

Apple Avenue Quilts said...

I love the triangles. I think they would be great fun to play with. Thanks for the chance!

Anonymous said...

I also gave away " not fun anymore" projects last retreat and have not missed them in the least . Great idea and a little freeing. triangles, triangles please.
