Magazine Giveaway to Celebrate my First Magazine Published Pattern

Hello! Happy Monday! It was a happy mail day for me because “Quilter’s Connection” sent me a bundle of copies of their Spring 2016 issue which has my “Modern Circles Rainbow Quilt” in it. Naturally I would like to host a giveaway here on the blog to celebrate my first official pattern published in a magazine. “Quilter’s Connection” is a Canadian Quilter’s magazine.

I have a thing for sewing curved seams lately and I always love a rainbow. My pattern gives fabric requirements for both this baby quilt and a lap/twin sized quilt.

If you are new to sewing curved seams please check out my YouTube video to see how easy this actually is!

Please leave me a comment here on this blog post to enter to win a copy of the magazine! 🙂 Open to everyone. I will choose a winner at the end of the day on Wednesday March 9th, 2016 and the winner will be emailed and announced on the blog. If your email is not public on your account please make sure I have your email address in the comment so I can contact you if you win.

For another chance to win please feel free to follow, like and comment over on this photo on Instagram.

  1. Wow, you are published! Yes I must admit a bit of a wall when it comes to curves but heaven knows I have scrap fabric and your video to give it a try!

  2. How exciting to be featured in a magazine! Congratulations your sweet baby girl,will love that rainbow quilt for years to come…it's a beauty….I'm sure she is too!

  3. How Awesome!! Know you are soooo excited! Congratulations!!! Your Quilt is So pretty! Super job!! Thanks for chance to win the magazine too..I would love to make the Lap Size for our Family room! 🙂

  4. This is just gorgeous, congratulations on your publication. I still have a bundle this Heather Ross fabric waiting for the perfect quilt. x

  5. I love the quilt- the fabrics are so lovely (can't get enough of her designs!) and rainbow with dots is so sweet! I would happily make myself a large version of this 🙂 Congrats!

  6. Good job, the quilt is lovely. I am going to watch the tutorial, and then I will watch it again. Thank you so much for sharing, and congratulations. janie(dot)mccombs(at)yahoo(dot)com

  7. Let me add my congratulations for your achievement, too! Such a pretty pattern to have published!
    Your video was a light bulb moment for me. Your method of sewing in from both ends is brilliant. I can see how each block would turn out perfectly round sewing that way. I'll do this next time for sure!

  8. adding this comment that was put on a different blog post by accident: Thanks for the opportunity to get this pattern. I have been hoarding some Oriental fabrics with a circle quilt pattern in mind. This would be great. Love your blog and your work. Virginia

  9. How exciting to be published in a magazine. Other than the surgery, things are pretty exciting in your little corner of the world. I actually have some of this briar rose fabric around. Very creative way to use the fabric!

  10. Anita,
    Wow you must be on Cloud Nine! That's got to be a great feeling to see your pattern in a magazine:) Sewing curves is a cinch now after watching and practicing along w/your video. Thank you ever so much.
