Giveaway Times 3

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for popping over to the giveaway! I hope you have had a chance to listen to Judy Niemeyer and myself chat on my podcast. If you haven't just click here to listen in...

Because Judy was so generous, she has offered three patterns to three lucky individuals!

The first is the pattern that I just completed at her retreat. You can see mine by clicking here and here. The name is Summer Solstice and I decided to name mine "I Am Not Afraid of Color".


The next one is also one that I recently completed and you can see my version here. The name is Total Eclipse and I named mine "Lollipops and Bubblegum." By the way, I will be teaching this as a class in January. If you are interested in the details send me an e-mail.

The last pattern up for grabs is a terrific one for a beginner paper piecer and it is Layer Cake or Fat Quarter Friendly! It is called Three Ducks in a Row. This is one that I will be making for our bed.

If you can't wait for the giveaway, you can purchase these patterns in my shop by clicking here. But if you would like to enter the giveaway here are the details:

1. Leave a comment and tell me which of these you would like to win and why. (Comment 1)
2. Like Judy's page on Facebook and comeback and leave another comment telling me. (Comment 2)
3. Sign up for Judy's Newsletter and comeback and leave me another comment telling me. (Comment 3)

So you leave 3 comments and you get 3 chances to win!! You don't have to leave 3 comments, but the more you leave the better the chance of winning one of her fabulous patterns!

Don't forget, I need to have a way to contact you if you win! If you are a "no reply blogger" or "anonymous commenter", you will need to leave an e-mail address.

The giveaway will remain open through 10:00 pm EST Thursday, October 6.


Thank you to all who entered!! The giveaway is now closed.

Good luck to all!!

Until Next Time...

  1. Hi Jackie! Thanks for offering this giveaway! Love the patterns by Judy Niemeyer. And as I was going through them all on her website, I just fell in love with Ducks in a Row. Then came to this giveaway part and you've got that one as one of the freebies! Very cool! That's the one I'd choose...and I'd use it for my daughter in Michigan for her cold winters!!

  16. While I love the first two patterns (and your quilts) I think 3 Ducks in a Row would be better for me because I have only made two paper pieced blocks.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I signed up for the newsletter -please pick me!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love this giveaway and an opportunity to win a pattern. Total Eclipse takes my breath away, although may be too tough for a beginner!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I will choose Summer Solstice. I think it is gorgeous. It is a good size for me to make. And it doesn't look quite as complex as Total Eclipse. I have paper pieced before but I am not quite that advanced.
