Haven't Done This in Awhile

You're familiar with Lori Smith's patterns, right? Her company is From my Heart to Your Hands. A couple weeks ago, I was looking for the pattern for a quilt I saw at the last Thimbleberries Club meeting and I ended up ordering two different patterns from her website--she has wonderful designs using traditional quilt blocks.

Anyway, she was at quilt market when I placed my order and I guess she felt badly that it took awhile for her to get the order in the mail--not that it bothered me at all because Lord knows I have PLENTY to keep me busy! Along with my two patterns, though, she sent along a freebie for making me wait--


There are patterns for all nine small quilts in the one package. Each quilt finishes at 16" x 20". Are you interested in winning the pattern? I already have several of her mini quilt patterns and I think I might even have this one, so I'm willing to pass it on to a lucky someone. Unfortunately, I can only afford to mail the pattern to residents of the US or Canada. I'll randomly pick a winner on Sunday night and will post the winner's name on Monday's blog post. Just leave me a comment on this post, telling me you want to be entered.

If you click on the link where I mention Lori's pattern company above, it will take you to a page on her website showing some of her patterns. If you aren't familar with her stuff, take a look.

We moved into a new condo in December and I finally have my own sewing\craft room. I need some decor to hang on the walls and some of those cute mini quilts would be perfect. Thank you so much for the chance to win.

Carol said...

Acckkk.....won't accept my comment, trying again. I usually stop by Lori's booth at Houston Festival each year. She is such a sweet and genuinely nice person. Her mini quilts are stunning....the piecing as well as the hand quilting. I am looking for a pattern for a doll quilt for my granddaughter's birthday this summer. This might just be the one. Several of these are definite possibilities.

Kristy said...

Oh those look so sweet! I am looking for mini patterns to use some of the 30's prints I have. Thanks for the chance to win this. You are always so sweet in passing things on to us. K-

Rabid Quilter from CA said...

I love 16" x 20" quilts. I have a window in my front door and in the summer, the sun shines right in our eyes from that window! I've made a few 16 x 20 minis for this window and love changing them out for the seasons. A few new ones would be great! Thanks for the opportunity to win this pattern!

Grandma M said...

Oh I would love to win the pattern. Lori does lovely work and I enjoy working on her projects.

Janet said...

Still playing catch up from vacation - hope I'm in time to get in on this! Love LS patterns- have made several. Seeing this one reminds me I have a brand new (feb) great niece that I'll need to do this stuff for!
