Sue Garman Giveaway!!

 I finished all the little pieces and parts into bow ties from last post.  It was such fun to play with all the pieces in different patterns!  But the bow ties won out.
 A funny thing happened in our neighborhood this morning.  I was out walking, and saw an Estate Sale sign.  Oh no, I thought...not another one of our elderly neighbors!!  So I walked the block and walked into the house...and met a quilter!  She was selling lots of her belongings, because she and her husband are moving to Taos, New Mexico!  She has a long arm machine and is a scrappy quilter, just like me!! Darn, I sure wish I would have known about her earlier...someone my own age, and a quilter to boot!!  She was selling this beautiful basket above.  I love it, and it now lives at my house.
Now the most fun thing ever happened this week!  I ordered this pattern, from Sue Garman...the OMIGOSH quilt.  I have loved it forever, and it is just the right pattern for scraps...the ultimate pattern for scraps!!  I ordered two of the pattern, so I could give one away.  Guess what?  Sue Garman herself e-mailed me and said thank you for ordering!!  I wrote back and told her I was going to give away one of the patterns, and she sent another one also to give away!!  So...I have two of this pattern to give away.  It is such a fun one!!  So just comment on this post and I will draw two names next week to win this pattern.  Sue was just the nicest, most kind and down to earth lady via our chat.  Please see her website HERE...she sells the most beautiful patterns!  And her blog HERE. http://suegarman.blogspot.com/




Have a great week,

Julie

Oh Julie, I am drooling! I love that quilt and been following Sue's blogs for a long time. Oh please put my name in the draw. Thank you so much. You are too generous. It is really too bad about the quilty neighbor leaving your area. I too wish I knew someone quilty close by.

Betsy said...

Julie I was actually on her website this morning looking at her " mama said quilt and ladies of the sea

Nancy said...

Your little bow ties are adorable. At first I thought they were spools -- I guess the pattern just must be similar. Sue's quilt pattern is oh-so-fun. Thanks for offering the pattern.

Jean said...

I have made one Sue Garman quilt. I would love to do this one!

Crickets Corner said...

I'm sorry you didn't meet the lady down the street sooner. If would have been great to have someone so near that shares your passion. It's wonderful of both you and Sue to give away this great pattern. I love scrappy quilts and this looks like the perfect pattern.

Missy Shay said...

i love that basket too! My elderly neighbor quilts, but she does not seem to want to share, when I knocked on her door once, she kind of got mad at me, as long as I'm not near her house she is very friendly though. LOL

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

How fun! That looks like a great pattern for scraps~ and I have a pile of them! :o I like your basket too. Too bad your neighbor is moving. I am off to see Sue's blog~ its new to me. :-) Have a happy weekend!

Nancy said...

I love Sue Garman patterns. This pattern would work great for scraps.

Leanne said...

Amazing quilt I wish you luck in making it. Don't put me in the give away as there is no way I could ever make a quilt with soooooo many pieces.

Debra Anger said...

Hi Julie, don't put my name in I have this pattern and like you I love it I have seen this on many a quilt show and they are just lovely. The pattern I got the maker even had a few little pieced squares in it and has given me her scrap box as well! I know you will put your twist on it.

Material Girl said...

I would be so excited to win this pattern. Would love to see yours too.

Karen said...

I am very familiar with Sue Garman's patterns. I have drooled over the applique designs many times.

Too bad that your neighbor is moving away right when you find out she is a quilter. Did she quilt for the public or just herself?

Eileen said...

This pattern looks like a perfect leaders/enders quilt! I come from a 3-generation family of nurses (I'm not one) and enjoy reading your notes.

Me and My Stitches said...

I love Sue's patterns, and have been eyeing this one for a long time. It is definitely right up my alley! Wouldn't it make a great leader-ender project! Fun that you found your quilter neighbor - too bad she's moving!

I love Sue, and you are right, she writes personally every time you order.
