Canvas - pattern give away, and sale ends tomorrow

I am so thrilled the people have been buying my pattern from both my Craftsy and my Esty shop - thank you!! Until midnight tomorrow, June 2, it will still be half price (use the coupon code CANVAS50 on Esty) for the conclusion of the opening sale. After that it will still be available, just at regular price.


I thought I would share some versions from my pattern testers. Debbie, from a Quilter's Table, used colours that totally remind me of her to make this fantastic mini. The pattern is sized from mug rug to large king size.


Stephanie, from Spontaneous Threads, is working on this fantastic mod version. Keep an eye out for her finish and her pattern give away later this month.


Lori, from SewPsyched, made this stunning pillow, which works so well with her quilt. She will be hosting a pattern give away shortly.


My friend Aylin, who blogs at Aylin-Nilya, made this beautiful mini.


Cheryl, who is on Flickr here, is working on this version.


Leanne from Devoted Quilter is working on this one.


Patti, who blogs at Retired to Quilt, made this fantastic pillow.

Leigh, from Flickr here, made this cute mug rug. 

If you have been working on a version of Canvas and I have missed you, please send me an email so I can include your version next time I do round up post.


I made this baby size version. But after consulting with the internet via instagram here, I have decided to cut that binding off, and redo it. Although it is not terrible, it is not adding anything to this little quilt. But I wanted to make an all prints version of the pattern.


These last two are pillows that I am working on. They have a very retro mod look to me, I think it is the colours.


 If you have made it this far, just leave me a comment for a chance to win a copy of the pattern. Let me know whether you are good with pdf patterns or prefer paper copies - this pattern is a pdf, but I would like to know for making future plans in terms of patterns. If you follow my blog or me on instagram, you can have a second entry, just leave a second comment and tell me how you follow me. I'll close the draw on Friday night at supper time and draw the winner randomly.

If you have already bought the pattern and then win (here or on any of the pattern tester giveaways), I will refund you the price you paid for the purchase, so don't hesitate to buy the pattern while it is still on sale if you would like to be sure you have it now.

I have some more quilt patterns to write up, and also will be putting my pattern(s) up for sale in some more shops. I will keep you posted.

Best,

Leanne

  9. I love the clean lines of this quilt. My first instinct would be to stick with solids, but after seeing some of these lovely versions, prints might be a possibility. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of your pattern.

  14. I follow via Bloglovin'!!! I would prefer a paper pattern and only because I would print a PDF pattern anyway!!

    ReplyDelete

  16. Very cute! PDF is fine with me ;) Also just wanted to say I've been admiring your Reflections quilt and want to make one like it sometime!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I really like Patti's pillow. This would look great on my new king size bed, (which I love) I'd prefer a paper copy as my trusty printer has finally decided to work no more :(

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would love to win this, as I've been looking for cushion patterns! I prefer the paper variety. Thank you for the giveaway! sarah@forrussia.org

  20. Love this pattern and as you say- it works at any size. I prefer paper patterns but it's just a preference, not a deal breaker.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Congrats on your first pattern release! I like paper patterns as I'm kind of low tech....

    ReplyDelete
  22. But I do follow you through my feedly reader.

  23. SO fun to see all the different versions! I prefer PDF versions because I often like to mark patterns with colors or make check marks as I cut out pieces. If I have the pattern as a PDF, I can always print a new one if I want to start with a clean slate if I use the pattern again.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I really like your pattern and enjoyed seeing the tester's variations. I like PDF's because I can get them right away. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great variations of your pattern, I would love to win a pdf version! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  28. what a variety of quilts all very nice it shows how using different fabrics the same quilt can look so different

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love this pattern! I'm a fan of pdf patterns - can't beat it for instant gratification! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  32. So lovely seeing all the different versions of Canvas! Jxo

    ReplyDelete
  33. It can look so different! I think Debbie's is beautiful. I like a PDF but that's because I can have immediate access rather than waiting 2 weeks. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I enjoyed seeing all those different versions. Pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Don't include me in the draw Leanne- I have mine ready from my win over at Debbie's blog! But I did want you know how much I love your last photo! Those vibrant colours just sing!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I much prefer pdf patterns. I live in the UK and it means I don't have to pay ridiculous postage costs (set by the delivery companies, not the pattern designers!) or get stung for customs. I can also print it more than once so if there's a template and I rip it, or a pattern that I scribble on, I can have a fresh copy for the next time.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Some of those examples don't even look like the same pattern. It is amazing how fabric choice and placement can really change things.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I follow on blog lovin. Oh and I forgot. . . I love opening a paper pattern, sort of like a gift. However, I like the instant gratification of getting the pdf right away.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love all the variations! I'm definitely about instant gratification so prefer PDFs.

    ReplyDelete
  40. And I follow your blog on Bloglovin'. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. This looks like a pattern to start with - I'm a beginner with a small stash of fat quarters crying out to me. I follow you on bloglovin'. PDFs are fine.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I like PDF's and paper patterns for different reasons. I really like paper patterns for clothing, only because you have to print so much for a PDF, but for quilts and handbags, PDF's work perfectly and you don't have to store much, which is nice! Great pattern Leanne!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I follow your blog and instagram!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the simplicity of your new pattern!
    I'm glad you did an all-prints version. I tried to imagine one, but solids were bossier in my head.
    I liked the binding too, I think you should leave it on.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Each one is completely brilliant - speaks to the beauty of your design, Leanne!

    ReplyDelete
  46. For quilts, I prefer PDFs. I can directly cut the templates in the paper and glue them on cardboard. (and no waiting for two weeks, with posting fees higher than the pattern price...)
    Thank you for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  47. And I follow your blog with rss feed on Netvibes.

  48. I prefer pdf patterns. I always seem to mess up with paper patterns but with pdf's at least I can reprint if I make a mistake.

  65. I am fine with pdf's, but do like printed patterns better. They always look so professional, and easy to store and find, pdf's seem to get lost both on my computer or when I print it out. Thanks

    ReplyDelete

  90. Love all the variations you show.. I think that's important for those of us "visual" people to help the eyes and brain SEE the capabilities and that you can go anywhere, any color and it still wows...
