    Wow! what an amazing prize!
    Count me in please and thank you for all the giveaways you have offered this week! The colours have been breathtaking – especially from a cold and grey UK!

    What a beautiful array of colors! In 2010, I attended PIQF and saw your quilt style for the first time. I pulled out my cell phone, and took picures…the green background with the white lilies…a woodsey theme. Your work is beautiful, and I love your blog! Thanks for the inspiration, and your generosity.

    One of my goals this year is to make a crazy quilt. I have been saving all kinds of things like Minky, corduroy, flannel-backed satin, scraps from Texture Magic projects, chenilles. I would love to add your collection to the mix. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Your fabrics are just breathtaking – silk/rayon velvet? I can’t even imagine how it must feel. I’d have to sleep with it! In my favorite color too. Thanks for the great week of giveaways. I’m a follower now so can’t wait to see what other loveliness you post.

    I’m holding my breath. I love your dyed fabric. I have some silks I bought from your class years ago. You are a wonderful teacher. You released my fingers to free motion quilting and I haven’t stopped being grateful for your lessons. I wanna win, please!!!

    Merry Christmas Frieda!

    Oh, just what I need for two different projects! The velvet, silk, and ribbon for part of a crazy quilt block, and the rest for my Yo-Yo-ville Quilt! Have a wonderful holiday season.

    I have the quote, “If you’re not having fun, you’re doing something wrong,” engraved on my iPad … I definitely agree that they words to live by … and definitely apply to quilting 🙂

    Your giveaway has been fabulous–I envy all the winners.

    Such beautiful pieces with many great possibilities! Over dyes have become my new favorite thing to do. When I go to work I look through the clearance fabrics for fabrics that are white or light and seem very ugly and then buy lots of yardage. I know I can use dye to make them beautiful for me! So much fun.
