It's time for another blog prize...

We had our first blog "door" prize in November and it's high time for another one! This is a block from the sampler quilt in our book, The New Applique Sampler.

Becky appliqued this block (by hand, herself) for a class and it never made it into a quilt. The background is 12 1/2" x 19 1/2" and it has not been trimmed.

To enter to win this lovely door prize, leave a comment on this post. Be sure to leave your name!

On Friday (or Saturday, depending on how the week goes) we'll announce a RANDOM winner of our prize! If you post anonymously we may not be able to email you to let you know you won, so be sure to check back.

And don't forget that the deadline
(March 1) for the Free Block Contest is fast approaching. We've already received some photos of completed projects and we're loving them!

I absolutely love applique, but just don't have the personal talent (or patience). I'd love to win it and use it as the center for a pieced quilt.

Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

GARI said...

Everyone is right, it is a beautiful block and deserves to come home with me. I have hand appliqued, once. It was fun but very hard on arthritic hands. It would be much easier to win a block, don't you think?

I love the choice of fabric and colors in the applique piece. If I happen to win the blog prize, I would display the piece in my sewing studio enabling all my applique, quilting, and sewing friends to share in the joy of a "real" Texas masterpiece.

The piece reminds me of our Texas days - snow flakes on the blooming flowers one day - sunshine on the same flowers the next. "Only in Texas" as we say - "Only in Texas".

Janet said...

I love that the base of the flower is formed with a circle--a nod to quilts from the 1800's. And, I am drawn to the happiness and prettiness of Piece O'Cake designs. They are so optimistic.
Becky just taught at the Tampa, FL TAS chapter Feathered Princesses in October 2009. We voted her the best applique teacher we've had. That is quite a big honor as we have had many wonderful teachers! Becky inspired me to really turn the corner with my applique, needle turn it that is. As I worked along finishing my class piece, I was able to consult the excellent cd and book--truely invaluable resources. As a result, my class piece was finished by January. As no good deed goes unpunished, I am now leading the March Becky Continuing Ed class for the Guild. Thanks for asking me Dorthy. :0) Hey, I like being a student -- it is fun being the baby and being helped and watched over. Teaching is hard work! :))) Janet Wachter

The Piece O' Cake method of appliqué has made my love for quilting a real passion (or maybe that's obsession). Goodness, there is such a fine line there... It is the perfect method for all I do!

I would love to frame this block and have it hang on my studio wall.
