Baby Tumbler Quilt Kit Give-Away!



I needed a baby shower gift in a Jiffy and also wanted to try out my new 3 1/2 inch tumbler die I got off ebay for the Studio cutter so when I combined the two, this is what I got. Took me about 2 hours to put it together, now I just need to quilt and bind and wrap around the cute little baby!


Well, when I cut out the pieces, of course, I ended up with waaaaay too many. So, here's the giveaway.


You have the chance to win everything you need to complete a quilt top just like this. Enough 3 1/2 inch tumbler blocks, the 1 1/2 inch inner border and 3 1/2 inch outer border. The finished quilt top measures about 37x40 inches and is the perfect size to cuddle that cute little baby that is coming into your life. What? No baby you know of? How about donating to your favorite local charity.


So, how do you win?


First, head over to my friend Carla's blog. Take a look at what she has been up to. If you are a reader of North Hills Quilter, you know I talk about Carla a lot! She is my partner in crime and we get each other in trouble a lot :) You can see that she quilts for hire at the top of her blog. She has a robotic quilting machine that can do some amazing things! She just programs it and tells it what to do and she can go take a nap, read a book, eat some bon-bons and put her feet up. When the machine gets to the end of the row, it sits quietly and waits for her to come back and roll the quilt and do the next row. If you are looking for someone to do some machine quilting for you, Carla does a great job and her rates are really reasonable. She also has a really fast turn around time!


Then, come back here and tell me about one of the quilts you liked from her blog. Just leave a comment with your favorite quilt from Carla's blog in the comment and you are entered for a chance to win the quilt kit for the Baby Tumbler quilt.


One comment per person please to keep things fair. International people are ok this time because the package will be small enough not to break the bank :)


I will pick a winner on July 31, which also happens to be the day that the Accuquilt Facebook contest ends! what a coincidence :) Good Luck!

I added Carla to my google reader daily reads. I think one quilt is more amazing as the next, but I love the super size nine patches that she has kids making her to give back to the commuity. I have made that pattern...so satisfying for those sewers and for the babies who get them!

I like that bright bargello quilt.

I check Carla's blog almost every day and am partial to the puzzle quilt she quilted for me. However, I LOVE the brown and pink drunkards path she just came up recently after a guild challenge. I'm going to try to make one myself. You both are amazing women who are doing great things for your community and BEYOND!

The Vineyard's path is my favorite, I just love the colors. Then I would have to go with the Quilt as you go quilts. I am working on one of those right now :)

Mimi said...

I love the colours in the Vineyards Path quilt... it would have to be my favorite! Thanks!

Michelle said...

Because I'm on such a drunkard's path kick, I love fractured circles and gentle curves!

Donna said...

I can't decide which one I like the best. Love both the Vineyard Path because of the colors (blue and purple are my favorites) and Shari's Wedding quilt because of the simplicity but rich look.

I look at Carla's blog. Every quilts was unique in there our way. I loved the T-shirt quilt. How the blocks was set together and the background fabric was great.
Thumb up for her remarker quilting and helping others.

Mary said...

Carla has a lot of pretty things to look at. My favorite in the Gallery was the Christmas HST quilt, and in the blog entries I really liked the lone star, but the quilts with the curved piecing were awesome, too.

Marsha said...

Carla's quilts are so pretty. My goal is get a quilting machine just like hers. My favorite of all was the fact that she got the middle school Home Ec. students involved with quilting, that is awesome. And then send the quilts to Japan. She is just amazing on all she does for her community. And the women that come out and help her. She has a great bunch of girls. I hope the turtle quilt wins at the fair!
Thanks for the new blog to follow.

I liked Vineyard Path the best. Think it is the colors that did it.
Her blog looks fun, so I added it to my reading list. Thanks for the chance to win.

I love the puzzle pieces quilt. What a lot of beautiful quilts! Thanks for a chance to win! I've been wanting to try a tumbler quilt!

Lisa said...

HI! Your blog is awesome and so is Carla's. Since I am the area coordinator of Central Ohio Binky Patrol, I was thrilled to see that Carla does so much work for the Binky Patrol chapter out there in California! Fantastic!

Although all of her quilts are beautiful, the one that spoke to me the most is Shari and Jeff's Rail Fence Quilt. I love it!!

Cat said...

I liked a lot of her quilts, the quilt gallery was awesome. But the one that I loved was the Vineyards Path. I love the color purple (could you guess?) Thanks for the opportunity to win the tumbler quilt kit - I have always wanted to make one of those.

Chaya said...

This wasn’t an easy task. So many beautiful quilts in Carla’s blog!
I went through the pictures back and forth, reading the stories behind them and wondering which is the most most most spectacular in my eyes. After lots of debates, I decided to go with “Fractured Circles” which is really special in my opinion. The quilting stitches add so much style to this quilt!

Becky said...

I love the Gentle Curves quilt that Carla made at a guild workshop. I'm on our guild program committee. I'd love to learn to sew curves:)

Thanks for the change to win the making for the baby quilt! I know just the child that I would love to make this quilt for.

Debra said...

I like Derrek's Quilt. Such bright colors!

I love the idea of the Memory Quilts! Great great idea... Carla did a beautiful job!
