My First Giveaway!

As I mentioned in my last post, in celebration of my 50th post -- and as a big THANK YOU to everyone for your support, kind words, and assistance when needed -- I've decided to host my first giveaway! People suggested some great ideas for giveaway items (fabric, FQ's, magazines, candy, etc.) but I decided I also wanted to MAKE something as part of the giveaway. And that's why my blog's been so quiet this past week!

Let me start by saying that I am not a bag maker. That is certainly my wife's forte. But I had a stack of fat quarters that I was loving and had been contemplating working them in to one of my swaps this summer that I was instead inspired to turn into a set of small drawstring bags. They are from a great (& quick) Amy Butler pattern and have become our "go-to" gift when we need something quickly.

And here they are!





Hope you like them! And yes, they will be filled with goodies ... which may or may not include a chocolate Tar Heel, Sequana! ; ) I've also been grooving to some great new music while working on these, and was inspired to include a mix CD with each of the bags. (I LOVE making mix CD's, by the way).

So here's how I am going to do this. Simply leave me a comment on this post anytime between now and Thursday 7/10. I'll draw numbers and names at about 9PM EST, so spread the word and tell all of your friends! Oh, and if you have a preference on which of the four is your favorite, let me know ... I can't promise anything, but as I pull the names in order I'll try to honor preferences. Sound OK?

#1: Green Flutterby


#2: Pink Ginger Blossom


#3: Blue Flutterby (my personal favorite)


#4: Blue Ginger Blossom

  1. I think it's so awesome that a guy knows how to quilt! And make bags? Impressive for sure. I, too, am a mix-CD maker, maybe since I am a product of the 80's and mix tapes, haha. Love the mix CD's!

    Thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway!

  2. Beautiful bags! love the blue ginger blossom, if I had to pick. I make CD's, too! Perhaps I can exchange it for a "Music To Quilt To" mix?

    ReplyDelete
  3. Wow, those bags are to die for. The Pink Ginger Blossom sings to me. I had to come out of the lurking shadows to try and win one.

    Thank you so much for sharing with us, you are being very generous.

  24. Hello. Yaay! you are doing the giveaway. That blue bag (blue Ginger Blossom) speaks to me, since I was so fond of blue that as a teen I was called "Blue Gene."
    One of my loves is music also, so mix CD sounds cool to me.

  28. I found your blog through the lap quilt swap on craftster. I am so glad you will be joining us and am happy to get to know you more through your blog. All of your bags are gorgeous, but my two favorites are the green flutterby and the blue ginger blossom. Isn't amazing how different fabrics can make the same pattern totally different!?!

    ReplyDelete

    Kristie pointed me in your direction, and I think it is GREAT that you like to quilt! Of course, I would LOVE to be included in your giveaway. I think all your bags are beautiful, but I especially LOVE the pink one! I am going to add you to my list of blogs to read.
    Happy quilting!

  31. I recently found your site and am enjoying reading it! I read that you started out using your wife's machine... does she quilt too or just sew? Do you share a studio / sewing space or have separate areas? What about "the stash" is there one or two? Inquiring minds want to know!

    In order of preference, I like: Pink, Blue, Blue Green, and Green.

    :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm in the lap quilt swap with you and I am excited to see your blocks! Your work is so polished. Great job!!

  64. John, the bags are fantastic. I love all your fabrics you work with and the Flutterby is my favorite. I have a bit to use for a gift that I haven't got around to yet. I love how you used them in your bags. Your sewing skills are getting better and better.
    I remembered the other day that I had a great uncle who was one of the best quilters I have ever known. I thought about you when I was looking at his pictures. He made hundreds of quilts.
    Thanks for the shot at such a nice giveaway. Hope to see you back with the mini group next month. Congrats on 50! Love Stacy

  82. gorgeous bags! Would be hard to choose!!!! thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Your bags turned out beautifully! As all four of them are equally gorgeous it's hard to prefer one of them...but I think bag #2 "speaks" to me because I'm a pink girl ;o). I've already admired your other works you've shown us on your blog (thank you for showing!).
    I still have to make my first bag (I'm still afraid of starting it...seems quite difficult for me, I think I'm a little bit 3D challenged...)

    ReplyDelete
  86. Kudos, John, on your work and your 50th blog entry. I'd love to have any one of your bags, if I am the winner. I think they are all beautiful.

  96. Me, Me, Meeeee - any bag will do. I thought I'd be lucky and not too many folks would post, but was I wrong!

    Each one is better than the rest!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Hi John:

    How's Clancy doing? My DH Steve loves reading your blog (he likes that there are other male quilters in the world).

    Your giveaway sounds really fun & the bags are totally cute. . .if there is a choice (and I am one of the winners, that is) I would love the Pink Ginger Blossom.

    How's your 4SQS Summer quilt coming? Haven't seen an update so I figured I would ask.

    Have a wonderful day,

    Sherry

    ReplyDelete
  98. Wow! Such wonderful bags! The blue ginger blossom is especially nifty, I think. Please enter me into the drawing too. :)

    And congratulations on 50 posts! Woo hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Nice that you are making bags. They are cute. And did you know that one of the members of the 6 inch quilt swap lives in your town?

    ReplyDelete
  100. Pink ginger blossom for my first choice. I think I remember you a few months ago mentioning you didn't have many readers - but 100 comments - I'm impressed. There are so many of us who enjoy your blog - give away or no (although that does make it fun).

    ReplyDelete
  101. So I think more people read your blog than you realize - i think its the guy quilting aspect that draws us in... Anyways, those bags are super cute, and my DH would be super annoyed if I happened to win one - which of course means I'm dying to have one! Strangely, I'm not a huge fan of the pink (which I normally would be - I like the blue version better)...

    ReplyDelete
  102. oh john!!! the bags are awesome!!
    way to go. eee i hope i win one, and you are so generous to include a mix tape and possible other goodies too! woohoo
    mmm i love them all, but this is my order of pref

    pink gingerblossom
    green gingerblossom
    green flutterby
    thanks for hosting such a sweeeeet giveaway. pick me pick me!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Wow those are some nice bags.........my other half quilts also, he likes to listen to Stevie Ray Vaughn. I would have to choose the blue flutterby bag. What a nice give-away.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Wow you've gotten a lot of comments on this one. Free and everyone jumps. I love these bags and they look like a simple design. Where might I find the pattern? Better yet, maybe I'll win one, along with all the goodies inside! I love the idea of doing a give away. Some day I hope to branch out from quilting to bags, though I'm still in the very early stages of quilting so I've got some time before I do much branching... I love the green and blue flutterby especially. How elegant!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Well, with 104 comments, there cant be much hope of winning your lovely giveaway! I do love the blue flutterby!
    I'm a quilter in France, how nice to see a male stitcher. I found you through Ann of En belle France, who doesnt live far `away from me, and one day we may meet to swap fabric.

  133. I just discovered your blog, and have added you to my google reader, so will keep enjoying. I am going to look around. Your bags are really cute, and if I were lucky enough to be 'the one', I'd have to say my favorite is the pink ginger blossom.
