Well the winner of the Lapel Sticks are….

Now to answer a couple questions that were asked about Lapel Sticks….A question was asked on how to purchase them. If you check out this link from their website you will find places that you can purchase Lapel Sticks. If you can’t find a location near you, you can also purchase them online from the company. I LOVE trying out new products…anything to make things easier or more convenient is always a winner with me and Lapel Sticks fit that criteria.
Now for a new giveaway….
This is another book that I am weeding out of my sewing room…I have made a few quilts from it. All of the quilts use VERY large pieces. All of the quilts are quick and easy to sew…perfect for last minute sewing and gift giving or perfect for a new quilter who wants to start with a project that is sure to be a success. The book is One block says it all: Wonderful bed quilts to piece in a weekend. The authors are Toni Phillips and Juanita Simonich. If you follow the amazon link, there are lots of pictures of quilts from the book.
If you want a chance to win, leave a comment….I’ll pick a winner on Friday. How about you tell me….how many quilts do you think you have made in your life.
Ummmm, maybe 30, give or take, I have given quite a few away.
I made my first quilt in mid-2005, so you would think my answer would be a high number of quilts, right? Well, no. In fact, I hate telling people I first started quilting in 2005. Because since then, my quilting experience has been sporadic at best. So…my answer? I think I have made 6 or 7 quilts. That’s it. Sad, I know. But I’m hoping to remedy that soon. I just finished a quilt flimsy (it’s being quilted now), and I’m itching to start a new one. So hopefully I’m going to start quilting a LOT now.
I’ve been quilting for about two years, and have yet to make a full/queen size quilt. Mostly I make lap quilts or wall hangings, and I’ve probably made about 7 or 8. The reason I haven’t made more than that is I LOVE wool applique, so I spend alot of my time with those projects. This book looks great and I’d love a chance to win it! Thank you!
I just finished my first quilt earlier this month. I can’t believe I waited this long to give it a try! I found your blog a few weeks ago and enjoy reading it very much. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win this book. jmniffer
Quilts – I would guess about 10. Wallhangings and tablerunners, about 30. Love those smaller projects!
I know of 12 baby/lap/bed quilts that I have completely finished….several smaller projects, table runners, hotpads, stockings etc….completed. Of course several WIP’s in the works at the moment. My first quilt was for the nursery when my first daughter was born in 2004.
I started quilting before my 1st daughter was born – ’87 – 23 or so years. I t was a Mickey Mouse quilt made from fabric from the local Zayre’s store. (In fact, just this year, I had to repair Steph’s quilt) Probably no one remembers them – like a WalMart. As the years have gone by, and my quilting abilities improved, I’ve made over 20 quilts – I’m very slow. Would love a chance to win this book! Thank you!
I have been quilting for almost one year and in that time, I have finished 6 good sized quilts, 2 table runners, 1 table topper, 1 wall hanging and there are 3 finished tops yet to be quilted. Only 2 have been sent to a long arm as they were way too big to do on my machine. There is a wonderful story of friendship about how I got started…a little long for this post but email me and I will tell it. Thank you for this opportunity.
I’ve made about 6 I think. Given them all away though. Now how many have I started…much larger number!!! :-) Thanks for the giveaway!
How many quilts–I don’t know–mine are different sizes with none being larger than a lap. So I think about 10 laps and off the top of my head about 20 table toppers.
I have not finished many! But, I have started lots. Quick and eash is something I could use.
I just started making quilts last year. I have made one queen size and started a couple of lap and baby quilts. I would love to have a book that makes easy and fast quilts. Have a great day.
wow, probably 40 or so… don’t really have a clue because once they are done and given away my mind moves on to the next project!
I started quilting while I was living in Colorado as an AuPair. That was in 2001. When I moved back to Germany I didn´t get back to quilting right away, because it was very hard for me to purchase good supplies. But then I discovered the greatest invention ever: online shopping. In the last four years I made only 4 quilts, but probably 30 tablerunners and a lot more potholders (they are just so quick and easy, and even more so since I got my Accuquilt Go! Baby)…
Have a nice day
I a wanna be quilter, that’s what I tell people. I’ve finished 12 small quilts and have several quilt tops done but not completed – not quilted or bound.
Thanks for the give away.
great question! I had to really think about it and was surprised that I’ve made and given away 18 quilts! and have made another 5 that are still here at my home.
I have at least twice that many that are “in progress” and about 10 times that many on my to do list! Guess I’ll have to live to be 100 to get them all done! My dream is to have a house full of quilts made by me and my girls. :)
Thanks for the change to win your neat book – I took a look at the link and the photos of what’s inside… great patterns for quilts that work up fast it seems.
Love from Texas! ~bonnie
your so nice to be doing these giveaways! A good way to recycle too!!
Quilts: Planned – about 30, bought fabric for – 8, saved clothing for quilts – 4 lg tubs full, working on – 4, finished – 1; and then there are the multitude of table runners, minis, and other small projects – can’t begin to count.
Made my first quilt in 1979 and boy was it bad. Been making them since then all sizes- large to small. Haven’t made a full size on in awhile but hoping to soon. This book is just what I need o get into doing them again. Pick mePLEASE
I have no idea how many I’ve made. I really wish I would have kept track.
I think I’ve made about 12 or so bed quilts, a few lap quilts, a couple of baby quilts and lots of wall quilts!
I started in 2005 when I became an empty nester. I have made about 20 smaller quilts, never a bed sized quilt so would be fun to give it a try.
I’ve made approx. 30 quilts so far. Large bed size quilts are my all time favorite but I have also done a fair amount of lap quilts and baby quilts. Keep up the great work on your blog. I enjoy visiting :o)
I’m new at this – I”m on my first one.
I have probably made about 50 quilts and plan on living to be 150 so that I can make everything on the ‘ol bucket list! haha
Take care and thanks for the chance to win!

I’m kind of a beginner, so I’ve only finished 3 or 4 and they were smallish. I am working on 2 bed sized quilts now – 1 twin and 1 queen – hoping the twin will be done next week. I have several other UFO’s or PHD’s – whatever you call them and tons more plans in my head – LOL
i’ve made about 12 quilts – about half are bed-sized and the rest small lap/baby quilts. None in 2011 so far so need to get moving on finishing projects.
I have never tried making quilts from larger peices. I love the cover quilt …. right up my alley. Pick me …. please!!!
What a neat book. I’ve never tried a quilt using larger pieces, but I’m sure I would like it. I like the quilt on the cover.
I’ve been quilting for a few years and have made around 25. I also enjoy smaller quilting projects, too.
Thanks for the give-away.
If the little baby and lap quilts count, I’m probably at least to a hundred. If we’re just counting throws and larger….thirty, maybe?
I’ve taken a beginners class in 2009. I’ve made a sampler wallhanging, all done by hand. I had to take out a part of the quilting because it looked terrible, and I still haven’t finished it!
I’m working on a HST quilt right now (by machine) and have a lot of plans for making other quilts, but if only I could find the time!
I would love to win the book, there are some beautiful quilts in it!
