Thanks for hosting this giveaway:) My favorite part about quilting is snuggling under the finished quilt with the dogs and watching TV!

I am just getting into quilting but I know it would make my grandmother proud. She used to make all of us grandkids a new quilt each year for Christmas. I miss her like crazy and decided to teach myself how to quilt

It's been years since I've made a quilt, and I've been looking for an excuse to make a new one. I'm really interested in trying a quilt kit.

I have to be sneaky while writing this. I promised my husband that "that giveaway thingy" is finally over. : ) Yet here I am again, signing up for another one. I have made exactly two quilts in real life, but about a million in my head. So I guess my favorite thing about quilting is the dreaming part.

saram said...

This has been on my mind for the last 3 weeks. Should I learn to quilt or not? Im not sure what is holding me back...maybe the thought of never finishing it? Im living on a mountain top and have nothing else to do with my time, so I might as well give it a try. If I don't win this freebie, I will click over to that site and check out the other quilts. I think this is a sign I should start. Thanks GBL.

Wow! This a great giveaway. I've only every made a quilt top and that was when I was 10 and hand stitched it. I'd love to make a full sized quilt and this seems like the perfect way for a newbie like myself to do it!

My favorite thing about quilting is the geometry of drafting a block. All those squares and triangles and HST's, etc. I love seeing it all come together.!

Thank you for your "Free Stuff" listings. Why I love quilts: Quilts remind me of my Grandmother and mother. They gave them as wedding gifts.

I found your site too late to enter the SMS giveaway but I think you have a great concept and would be happy to make and distribute some bags on your model. I love quilting, but have more unfinished than finished projects, lol! Most of my quils are made from cut-up thrift store items, as I am usually too cheap to buy new fabric. Thanks for hosting these giveaways, and keep up your good work!

Denise said...

I love freestyle quilting. I love getting mesmerized as I watch the stitches form shapes and patterns this way and that without ever having to stop to turn the fabric.Sometimes I enjoy making up my own path, but i also like to follow the printed design on the cloth.

What a great giveaway! I had no idea you could buy prewashed, precut fabrics. What I love about quilting is seeing all those little pieces of fabric come together to create something both beautiful and useful.

GG said...

One of my favorite things about quilting is choosing the fabric! I have that quilt-quirk (others have it, too)... I need to touch the fabric! Second, I love when the quilt is finished! I like the quilt kit very much & haven't gotten a kit in awhile - sad to say, money is tight. Thanks for this offer!

My favorite part about quilting is the smile/gratitude from the person receiving the quilt. But I do enjoy everything from picking out the fabrics and pattern and then spending time with my Mom making the quilt. We work really well together.

I love to sew, but all of the cutting involved in making a quit is a little scary...I know I'd mess something up! Having this done already would be so awesome!!

Thank you for all your amazing give-a-ways :-)

Great colors! My favorite part is applique, and I'd love to try whitework by hand. If I win this one, I'll donate the finished quilt to Project Linus.

So great! I am a 'finished product' quilter... I love when it is done and being enjoyed as intended!

SK said...

I've never quilted other than playing around, but always meant to. :) I bought all the supplies and a software program to design quilts. Maybe some day, sigh. . .

If I am lucky enough to win, please contact me through my Etsy store: www.sknaturals.etsy.com. Thanks!

I've used stich simple's and Harmony art fabric and it is simply devine. I've never quilted, but would love to start with this beautiful design. Thank you for the giveaway.

I've been a quilter for over 35 years. Still love color and design and especially the life- long friends I've made. Just visited with an 87 year-old-friend who's still actively making art quilts. We went to Japan together in 1985, with other quilters and are still friends. Love Harmony's fabrics!

The best part of quilting for me is the friends I have made. Quilters are the BEST kind of people! I've never made a quilt from a kit before, but would love to try it. Quilting is the one constant in my life right now. I can get lost in the process. It's soothing, and I am proud when the quilt is done. My email is gbs88(at)yahoo(dot)com.

I've made three quilts. My favourite part is reaching the point at which the top seems to grow exponentially. After working with tiny, little, fiddly bits for so long, it's a great feeling!

Thanks for all you're doing, Green Bag Lady, for our Earth. I'll be sewing a few bags this week to curtail the 'hmm, I've ended up at the grocery store without my cloth bags' phenomenon. Soon, I'll have bags in the car, in my handbag, and near the door.

PS. Am so not into Blogger's new method of identity verification. No longer can we simply use our gmail accounts, we are forced to establish a blog. Not into it! I'll be sending Google an email but thought you'd like to know, as well. People are turned off by it (myself included).

Lisa said...

New to quilting. Have only made one so far, but I'm working on #2 and #3. I must say I love every single step of putting it together.

What beautiful fabrics! I'm (very) new to quilting, so this would be a good first solo project (read: without my mom's help). Also, thank you for my Green Bag Lady bag that I already received! It's our "Y" bag for all our swimming stuff!

victoriawagner said...

Helloooo, what a great giveaway! I am not yet a quilter, but I sew lots of things. This quilt kit would give me a manageable first start at quilting and something I can share with my mother and grandmother, to both of which I must attribute my sewing, knitting and crocheting skills. Thanks!

Mollie said...

HI! I love quilting and my favorite part of quilting is that fabric is never wasted and can always be used for something and every quilt you make is a little window into your imagination. midwifemollie at gmail dot come

Green Bag Lady Teresa said...

Thank you to everyone for entering! All who have entered will either get one of the 5 prizes or a bag from us (if you don't already have one).

@Lori-- sorry about blogger. I just learned this was happening too and I think one of the reasons we did not have a bigger response to our last Sew Mama Sew freebie. We are planning to switch to Wordpress sometime this summer just for this reason. Thank you for letting us know though!

MissesStitches said...

I love everything about quilting! Can't get enough of it! And I so love The Green Bag Lady's work and I drool over Harmony's fabric. To all the other responders, don't delay! Start quilting now!

Thanks for extending the due date! I love Harmony's fresh fabric designs. Her attempts to use organic dyes help keep quilters and users safe and healthy has a great appeal to me besides the excitement I get each time I complete a quilt.
