Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways


My Giveaway

this giveaway is now closed

I am giving away five single patterns of the Chester Criswell Quilt.  The patterns are applique reproductions of my red and green signature quilt made in 1852.  15 patterns have been released so far and are available at  my website Two Bits Patches.  If you are one of the five winners you can choose any one pattern from the fifteen available, or you can chose to have the pattern for Block #16 which will be ready on 1st December.

The patterns are downloadable pdf files, so you don't have to wait for the mail.  Each pattern has the template and instructions and a story about the wedding guest who signed the quilt.

To enter, leave a comment with the pattern number you would like to win, and tell us where in the world you are from.  One entry per person. The five winners will be chosen at random after the blog hop finishes on 26th November.  I will contact you if you make your email address visible, if I can't get in touch with you by the end of November I will chose another winner.

HINT:  Block 1 is free on the website, so you can go to Two Bits Patches now and download Block 1.  I can send the winning patterns to any email, so you can chose to have a pattern sent to a friend or even as a Secret Santa gift or Kris Kringle.  I'm good at secrets!

  24. Hello! I'm from a little town in Washington State which is 35 miles from everywhere in the high semi-arid, dryland wheat country (featured in Zane Grey's novel "A Desert of Wheat"). Can you guess? Anyway, that's where I am and I LOVE applique. I like Block #12 and would love to do this quilt with you so will be coming back to get the rest of the blocks, soon. Thanks so much for offering these. Come by Prairie Cottage Corner for a visit, when you have a chance. We can have a warm cup of something and talk ourselves into stitches.

  25. Hello! I live in Canada and it is freezing here! I think I would chose block 14 because I just love those droopy flowers! Thanks for the chance to win!

  26. It's tricky! All of them pretty, but I will choose 10. I used to live a bit closer to you, in Ukraine, was born far away in Russia (between Moscow and St.Petersbourg) and now I live in Tennessee, USA for the last 10 years, again far away! I think when I was in Hawaii that was the closest distance between us.Thanks for chance to dream about having something unusual from the other side of a planet!
