How about Botanics for Giveaway Day?



Today is Sew, Mama, Sew's Giveaway Day, which stretches out to be giveaway week. Welcome and feel free to look around if you are new here.

I went shopping during the Black Friday sales and bought a whole bundle of Botanics, by Carolyn Friedlander to give away to one of you this week. It is waiting for the winner's information, safely on the shelf at the Fat Quarter Shop, as there is no way it would have made it to me, in Canada, in time for the giveaway.

I think this is my favourite of all the new fabric lines that have come out this fall. Since I don't have more pictures, I will let you know that you can read more about this fantastic fabric line at Robert Kaufman here, or at Carolyn Friedlander's website here.


I will draw the winner randomly on Friday night, December 13, 2013 after 5 pm PST. The rules are simple:

******************************This giveaway is now closed ***********************

Thank you to everyone who entered my draw for Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day. I am still reading through the excellent suggestions and ideas for projects, and I shall be making a nice list of projects to start over the holidays. I drew the winner this morning and it is Arita.

  • Leave one comment on this post, sharing an idea for me to consider for my next quilting project. I am itching to start something new and looking for ideas for patterns or techniques or whatever else you want to share.
  • Make sure your email is attached to your profile or you leave it in your comment. Don't be that person who misses a chance to win because I cannot find you.
  • This giveaway is open to everyone, anywhere in the world.

Good luck to all of you, I usually cannot respond to every comment in a giveaway, but I will be reading them all and thank you for the ideas. And, go and check out all the other giveaways, I know they are going to be great - I will be doing that too. The supply giveaways are here and the handmade giveaways are here.

Oh, and I am excited to say that my never ending matchstick quilting project,  Sunset, is finished! All I have is this sneak peak right now, she is proving very hard to photograph. I am going to work better photographs this week - stay tuned.

Best,

Leanne

Your work is amazing! How about the Scrappy Trip Around the World quilt? I've been trying to make time to work on that one.

Jessica said...

Wonderful giveaway. I am currently in love with a quilt that I found on Cora's Quilting. She has it for sale in her shop. It is called Aspen Glow. I'm new to quilting, but I hadn't seen anything quite like it before. It is just beautiful. http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/quilting/home-decor/aspen-glow-1305/66883

Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) said...

I love pretty much anything by Sarah Fielke in her Material Obsession and Material Obsession 2 books.

atabanana29 said...

Maybe an ombre kind of colorway? Thank you for this amazing giveaway!

Taisia @ Piecing Light said...

Circles in crescents and waxing/gibbous phases. Low volume and solids as a complement to Sunset.

Deborah said...

I am literally just starting out as a quilter, so I am nil for ideas but I am in love with some free-er form strip and scrap quilts i've seen

Hilary said...

Holy cow Sunset turned out gorgeous! I'm about to tackle Carolyn Friedlander's Shirts pattern, I'd love to see how you would make it :)

felicity said...

What a generous giveaway, Leanne! Thanks so much! What about a larger version of atmosphere. for your next project? I do love that quilt.

Anna said...

I am loving different kinds of giant star quilts... Or giant swoon quilts! I love the idea of taking something that is traditionally one block and making it huge and the focus of the whole quilt :) and thank you!!

Nita said...

what about an appliqued orange peel quilt? Sometimes it is nice to have a long term handwork project on the go...

Anonymous said...

Hi Leanne! This quilt is amazing! How can I suggest to you any pattern because your designs are alway so fantastic! Thank you sor sharing those beautiful fabrics! x Teje
nerospost(at)gmail(dot)com

Sharon - Lilabelle Lane said...

Thank you for a chance to win this. What about something totally free. Improv, low volume with little burst of colour. Maybe the colour could be the quilting? What ever you decide on I know it will be amasing. hugs

leigh7911 said...

You are insane. An entire FQ bundle?? And looking at your work, there's nothing I could possibly say that would inspire you. Love it! That said, I'm really wanting to make a jelly roll race quilt. Just gotta find the right fabric!

Anita said...

This prize is fantastic! Thank you for the chance to win it. I would suggest for your next project that you make a pocket quilt. I saw this done for American soldiers (I am a Canadian military wife). You could make it for a charity and put gift cards in the pockets for a family in need. Or you could make it for a child you know and put little toys and beanie babies in the pockets.

Little Ella Lu said...

Your quilt is so lovely! Have you ever done a cathedral quilt. That is what I've been working on this year and it too seems unending.

Erin N said...

Have you seen jaybird quilts Disco Quilt pattern done with Botanics? Love this fabric collection! Great giveaway.

Martina said...

I am itching to make this quilt. Looks so stunning. http://www.designsbyloftcreations.com/2011/11/introducing.html

Ned's Place said...

Double wedding ring in modern fabrics

Fran said...

Wow! Botanics is the one line that is at the top of my wish list, Carolyn Freidlander is such a fantastic designer & I think that Botanics is the ultimate modern fabric line. I'm kind of loath to suggest a pattern or project for you, having followed your blog for a while I am very much in awe of your quilting projects & your matchstick quilting is incredible (so excited to see that Sunset is finished). I'd like to see what you'd might do in the improv style perhaps? Thanks so much for the fantastic giveaway.

leanne said...

oh my goodness - Sunset is a dream - love it ! thanks for the giveaway - so generous of you as usual ! not sure I can give you any ideas as I think you might have done every technique known (to me anyway) ! hopefully someone will give you a spark this week !!

Elisabeth said...

Wow, Sunset is stunning, can't wait to see her in her full glory.
Botanics is a fabulous collection, my friend bought it and I was straight over to fondle and admire it. Thank you so much for the chance of winning it!
As for suggestions on technique, how about some y-seams? The Marcelle Medallion centre is a good one to try them, I believe.

crazyestonian said...

It looks like you have worked with pretty much every technique I have looked into :) Except, have you ever made a quilt with knit fabrics? Totally different material and process (I have done some baby sized knit pieced quiltlets). The drape is wonderful.

Unknown said...

I am stuck on the churn dash pattern right now for some reason. :) Thanks for the awesome giveaway! Merry Christmas.
craftyccain@gmail.com

Gill said...

I love 'Sunset' how about a LV version??
Thanks for a fabulous giveaway!

Unknown said...

I'd love to see what you could do with ribbons of Shot Cottons, perhaps with a contrasting slubbed Linen....

Unknown said...

I think you should do a log cabin quilt (says the new quilter that is obsessed with log cabins right now!)

Nati said...

This is a GREAT prize, I would love to make a quilt that looks made out of scraps but with a very modern look/design, maybe you can try that.

Nilya said...

Loooove your Sunset and love your giveaway bündle! Very Cool!

Molli Sparkles said...

The theme is: "in the dark." Now, create! :-) thanks for such a generous giveaway!

Nikita said...

I am in LOOVVEEE with your match stick quilt when you first posted on it..I couldnt stop staring at it..it is gorgeous! Ahem...with that said..maybe Gypsy Wife pattern.

dutchcomfort said...

Eek, such a wonderful give-away!
I’m still in love with your Noise quilt and would love to see a quilt like that with circles or big and small triangles. You have such an eye for working with solids!

SewLittleToSay said...

I'm just a beginner quilter and still at the stage of looking for inspiration rather than giving inspiration. I took a curved EPP class in the summer and really liked the possibilites that gave.

Unknown said...

Perhaps something completely different and low volume next?
Thanks for such a great giveaway :-)

Sheila said...

I love the quilting in Sunset and have a feeling you already have a few ideas bubbling up.
Your giveaway is so generous, thank you/

erin mcsweeney said...

well even though its nearing the end you should join in the tula pink quilt along on sew sweetness great blocks.
mcsweeney.erin@gmail.com

dawn - Mi rincón de mariposas said...

What about a scrap quilt in rainbow colors? ;-) thanks!

Amanda K said...

Awesome giveaway! Farmer's Wife for your next project?

Anonymous said...

An amazing prize. What about a low volume wedding ring quilt.
emma.house@thebowesmuseum.org.uk

Juliet @ Tartankiwi said...

Please please please please please... pretty please... ;-)
If you're into paper piecing I've got a few patterns that you could try. If not, how about trying some improv piecing?

Die Fischerin said...

Fantastic Giveaway! I like the colors in the bundle very much.

Kris said...

Wow what an awesome giveaway. I love your circle project and think you need to keep the series going. Some more circles maybe in circles?

Quilt Genius said...

WOW! Love the stitching on that quilt.

As for ideas, I have been drawn to those giant floor pillows and cubes lately. I am definitely going to have to make 1 or 5.

Jess @ Scrappy n Happy said...

I am determined to make next year the year of the WIP but I would love to make a friend a quilt...it needs to be asperger and OCD friendly, whatever that means! Probably minimalist and perfect!

Kelli said...

Oh my goodness, what a sweet giveaway! And sunset is so beautiful!! As far as next project--?? after I make it through my novel of a to-do list, I want to work on some scrappy wonky log cabins to bust through some scraps and practice my improv in a "safe" way since it's not really my thing. :)

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Thanks Leanne...not sure how I could pick a project for you. You do such exceptional work and your ideas are unique...just keep them coming!!!

Patti said...

Hmm, I've recently been drawn to all types of text fabrics. I don't have a specific idea but how about a design utilizing only text fabric? Thanks for offering such an awesome prize!

Paula Lemos said...

I'm new at quilting so I'm sure I don't know enough to advise you :) but your Sunset quilt is awesome! Thank you for this generous giveaway, I hope you can count me in!

Lettyb said...

I recently made a mantle quilt, and am kind of loving it. You can see it here: http://happydancequilting.wordpress.com/2013/11/17/snowy-christmas-mantle-quilt-finish/
Thank you for the chance to win!

Kay Holm said...

Check out spin cycle. Really neat new block. Thanks for the chance for the giveaway.

Jacqueline said...

I just started on my first handmade hexagon quilt. the quilt 'over the rainbow' from the book 'hexagogo'. I never thought I would start (and finish!) this quilt!

Joyce Carter said...

Thank you so much for your generous giveaway. Sorry, I don't have any suggestions for you right now. I usually look at other blogs to find ideas and get inspiration.

Joyce said...

How about a Medallion quilt...maybe a quilt-along...cause I need all the help I can get!

emsgram said...

i would love to see crayon coloring with quilting. i have not done this concept yet and thought it would be interesting. thank you for the chance to win prizes. have a very happy holiday to all.

emsgram said...

i would love to see something with crayon and quilting. i have not tried this concept and look forward to trying. thank you for the chance to win prizes. that's always special. have a wonderful holiday to all.

Sandy said...

Maybe something with 60 degree triangles? Thanks for the opportunity to win. I have been drooling over that bundle.

Wendy said...

Kristy at Quiet Play is doing a paper piecing BOM next year. I did the one she hosted this year and it was really well organised. I'd certainly advise that if you like paper piecing or want to try it.

Kreahygge said...

Thanks for the giveaway, love this line ! I suggest a wonky log cabin in solids with matchstick quilting.

Linda T said...

What a beautiful stack of fabric (and it would look great in my sewing room, also here in Canada)! I love the Whirlygigs type of quilt - such a fun pattern!

Needled Mom said...

OMGosh .... that Sunset is gorgeous! I love the colors. How about a companion quilt to Sunset called Storm?

sew.darn.quilt said...

I'm not sure what to suggest, modern or more traditional, I am sure that what ever you choose, it's going to be spectacular! Thank you for the chance :)

Sherry VF said...

You may want to check out the Hunter's Star block. I have started quilt with this block in Vintage Modern fabrics by Bonnie & Camille. It is so verstile to arrange in quilt designs (just Google and find out for yourself). svonfumetti at yahoo dot com

Sara A. said...

I'm working on a palette quilt in colors I normally think of as clashing, and I'm really digging the result. They kind of glow like jewels.

legato1958 said...

Awesome giveaway! How about a modern dresden plate quilt? Solids?
susie
legato1958@aol.com

Lee said...

I love your Sunset quilt!! fabulous work. What about a medallion quilt?

Allison said...

Wow, you are so generous it puts a smile on my face and makes me want to spread the happiness. It certainly puts my giveaway prize to shame! I think it would be interesting to venture into something paper-piecing wise, even if it's small like mug rug size. Then you can experiment with a crazy layout or something simple.

Anonymous said...

Lovely giveaway. I stick to the simple patterns - squares and stripes, so I don't think I can give you any ideas. Very beautiful quilt! jotenijo@yahoo.ca

Dawn said...

I would say something bright and sunny to get you through Winter! Thanks!!

redzshadow said...

I have really wanted to make a rainbow quilt of some kind. Elizabeth Hartman has a catvent quilt-a-long going on and I like that idea. Also, now I am inspired by your Sunset quilt. That is just beautiful like a painting!

Unknown said...

Great giveaway, hope I win, new follower via Bloglovin, thanks!
knittingmad(at)yahoo(dot)com

Kate said...

Oh my gosh, I am such a newbie quilter that I have no idea what to tell someone who has already made such beautiful things. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

Michele T said...

I just finished a quilt using FQs which turned out great... the pattern is called Sara2 (Sara squared)... the great thing about it is the quilt will be as big as the number of FQs you use!!! I can show you pictures of the quilt I made for my cousin's 50th and he loved the Cottage Quilt.

ChrisC said...

Beautiful fabric! I am just getting started quilting, so I'm afraid I don't have any great ideas for you. I've really been enjoying stuff lately that is a combination of really bright colors with grey. Thanks for the giveaway!

Susan Stanton said...

Your matchstick quilting is awesome! Sorry you had to "unstitch," but it was worth it! Try some EPP. Some beautiful patterns are out there to try. yoyopattycakes@hotmail.com

Bethany said...

I just did a spider web quilt which I love (because I love scrappy quilts...truly just love) !! :)

Kathy said...

Thanks for the lovely giveaway! If you are looking for a fun quilting project with a sense of adventure, check out the Celtic Solstice mystery at Bonnie Hunter's website, quiltville.blogspot.com. I've done her mystery quilt for the last three years and have had a blast each time.

Julia C said...

An interesting perspective sphere would be cool.

Ana e os Viraventos said...

I am new to quilting, so I am affraid I won't have much of advise for such an experienced quilter like you... Thanks for the giveaway. Ana

Dawn Frisch said...

As talented as you are, I don't think I could come up with an idea that could ever reach your level of creativity. I really enjoy seeing all of the quilts that you make and I love your type of quilting too. Maybe you could offer a FMQ along type of program where we could learn different quilting styles...???
Happy Holidays!

Gabrielle said...

I usually make more traditional quilts, but I have been toying with the idea of making a landscape quilt - specifically, an underwater landscape, featuring a kelp forest, and the sunlight filtering through the blades of kelp and water. I imagine a lot of quilting, sort of like your matchstick quilting, adding rays of light, and texture everywhere. I want to make one that looks like a modern painting, more than something you might see with literal prints. LOVE the botanics print, thanks for the giveaway.

principeta said...

Lovely giveaway,so generous of you.Thank you for the chance to win it.Love hexis,maybe hexagon quilt?Hope I help a little.

Nupur said...

Thanks for the amazing giveaway! For your next project, how about hand quilting in the style of kantha or sashiko?

Dresden Quilter said...

How about some improv piecing? Citric Sugar has done beautiful ones. Thanks for the giveaway.

Scrapbook-ChickADoodle said...

I'm new to quilting so no great ideas here. I enjoy your work.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Rina Mason said...

How can I give you any ideas when you're the one I get ideas from? How about something having to do with gears? What a fantastic giveaway, thanks for the chance.

Lauren said...

I'm too much of a beginner to be of much help, but I'm currently working on a penny patch with fresh colors and modern fabrics. It's quick and fun. Thanks!

meeshelle said...

Have you ever tried a chevron pattern for your quilts? I love those ones!! Great giveaway, love that fabric wow!!

Sharon M said...

What a great giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win.

stephmabry said...

I've been working ont he basics lately - I finished up a huge scrap vomit quilt not long ago and have been putting togehter and bunch of jelly roll race quilts to use up some wider "string" scraps. It's nice to have something quick and easy for a sense of accomplishment!

Thanks for the chance to win!

momma said...

I would love to see your take on a New York Beauty or similar curve and point gem. Love the texture on Sunset

Jessica said...

have you ever made a monochromatic quilt where the stitching is the only contrast?

jessicarwarfield at gmail dot com

Kay said...

I just started quilting, so I don't think I would have any good suggestions for you! I appreciate the chance to win though!

Cristi Baxter Clothier said...

I am thinking of starting a Gypsy Wife quilt soon!

abeullah said...

thanks for the chance to win. something modern
conguez@hotmail.com

Amanda said...

Oh man, I don't have any great ideas for you since I'm not a quilter, but you certainly do beautiful work! I'm sure whatever you come up with will be just lovely!!

Anonymous said...

It appears you like modern quilts and I am more of a traditionalist. i have seen some modern quilters take traditional designs and make them more modern. Another idea would be to put a bunch of scraps in a bag and without looking pull one out. You have to use that piece before you can pull out another one.

Jayne said...

I admire your blog and your work so much! Your latest projects...i am totally in love with. So beautiful! I would love to give you an idea...how about teaching me how to make Sunset?! Gorgeous!

Catskill Quilter said...

How about a smaller project? I love to make table runners to change on whim or to go with the changing seasons. BTW, Sunset is absolutely stunning!

Genevieve P said...

I don't really have any quilting ideas as I've mostly done 4 or 9 patches and stack of coins quilts so far! I'm hoping to do chevrons next.

Unknown said...

How about improv curves...long, wavy curves that could then be quilted in organic wavy lines...

Stephanie said...

Well I finished up the hemisphere pattern not long ago and it was really great. It is by aria lane

Kelsey said...

Leanne this is a fabulous giveaway, thanks for the opportunity! I have been dying to try an EPP quilt for a while so if you feel like giving it a whirl let me know and we can jump in together! Hand piecing seems like such a relaxing and warm indoor activity for a Canadian winter ;)

Ann said...

Love that line. I am loving the liberated wedding ring that greenleaf goods recently made. So be inspired by liberating a very traditional quilt.

taniab said...

Beautiful bundle. I have just started to teach myself to sew so I can come up with any ideas. I am personally hoping to make some clothes for my daughter and eventually work up to a quilt.

Cheryl said...

Are you done with the Circles phase? I wouldn't mind more of those to see! Perhaps a scrappier version?

Ali said...

Oh wow, Sunset turned out so fantastic, can't wait for your post about the finish!
And I just bought five of these prints yesterday but you can never have too much of her fabric.. However I don't have any advice on what you should do next, because you think outside of the box, and if I could do that I wouldn't need to spend so much time on pinterest and blogs looking for ideas!

Mari said...

Thank you for this opportunity. I was searching for (free) 3D flower patterns recently. Most of them were variations of only a few patterns. I`d love to see what you can come up with!
Mari: ma.mi.oja@suomi24.fi

Lyn said...

How about something small that could be used for mini gifts for holiday visitors.... small christmas ornaments for example... tiny stuffed trees, etc out of cheerful modern prints...

Jo Robertson (thejoyofthehousetomyself) said...

I've just made my first paper pieced quilt block - I love the lack of cutting and measuring...

Michelle Olsen Sasak said...

I think anything with thread painting, especially nature-inspired would look lovely.

Erika said...

I've always wanted to tackle a cathedral window quilt but haven't worked up the nerve yet.

Nakayoshi said...

Did you ever try oakshott or neon colors? I can't name patterns because I sew bags... I never tried quilts... Maybe I should ;)
Thanks for this giveaway!

Anonymous said...

The things that are intriguing me right now: low volume quilts (normally I like bright colors) and all-scrap quilts. I'm working on a spiderweb quilt with a red background. I've vowed not to buy any fabric for it and can use only pieces from my stash that are less than a fat quarter in size. I'm going to use the money I've saved to hire a long arm quilter! I have no idea how big it will end up.

Bossymamma said...

How about doing a rag quiilt?

Glenys said...

How bout an origami inspired one?

Kelly said...

I am too busy lusting after your sunset to come up with any ideas - it is just beautiful!

Amazing giveaway prize Leanne - thanks for the chance to win it :)

Sophisticat Studio said...

What a generoous giveaway! Thank you for the chance to win. I'm really drawn to modern interpretations of one-block quilts lately -- apple core, tumbler etc, so maybe one of those for your next project.

Kirsten said...

Dude, there is no quilt pattern I could offer you that you don't already know. You are pro! (But, I like modern scrappy.) kirstenandrich@gmail.com

Brenda said...

I'm getting ready to start a mystery quilt with Bonnie Hunter. It will be fun! You should join too!

Lori said...

Beautiful. Cant wait to see the rest of that quilt. I am about to start a drunkards path but the one I am really excited about right now is a pickle dish quilt with scraps.

Abby W @ColorBarQuilts said...

WOW what a fabulous prize! Love your work. Maybe something improv for your next project. Just to relax and see where it takes you. I am hoping to do a lot more of that in the new year.

Unknown said...

What an awesome prize. I'm not sure I could give you any great suggestions as I am a beginner! Thanks for the chance! bjwagner812(at)gmail(dot)com

Teresa S. said...

Have you done any quilts with hexagons? What about giant hexagons with the matchstick quilting? You inspired me to do matchstick quilting on a baby quilt I'm working on that has large appliquéd circles. I love the texture!
tstanulis@mac.com

Tina said...

Love, love, love sunset quilt, especially as the variegated thread in your matchstick quilting gives the impression of a gentle summer breeze! What about a midnight version, with dark blues, greys, and silvers coupled with a coordinating variegated thread?

KJC said...

WOW what a giveaway. I quite fancy hard edged shapes with lots of narrow echo quilting. Probably with a black background and solid bright fabrics.

Mika said...

A quilt from old baby clothes :) Love keepsake quilts!

SS said...

Ok, you are totally way more advanced than I am. I noticed you had several star blocks in your links so maybe you would like something like Elizabeth Hartman's sparkle punch quilt (http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2011/12/sparkle-punch-quilt-piecing.html)
I have really been liking 60-degree triangles lately myself.

diane said...

I've liked everything of yours that I have seen - anything you pick would be a winner!

Drae said...

Ever done a postage stamp quilt? I wouldnt exactly recomend it as I've been going on 15 years now but I still cut all my scaps into 1.5" squares for the next one.

Tawny said...

I like the idea of making a memory quilt out of old clothing. My husband collects concert t-shirts and stuff and it would be really nice to save them in something. I've gotten as far as cutting them into quiltable "blocks" but haven't actually done any of the quilting yet. :)

Unknown said...

You should make a hexagon quilt, it is very addicting.
red_murray2(at)yahoo(dot)com

Cozye said...

Oooh I want to play with all that fabric!! Let's see...paper piecing. I've been trying to work on some cute Harry Potter blocks. Just have so many other projects that have presidence...

lauraluvsloons said...

I haven't seen many modern quilts with applique. I made a very geometric one with bright kona cottons contrasting with gray and dark purple panels for an adult daughter and appliqued kona flowers leaves and vines on the two corner sashes. It was a nice combo of modern and traditional and very striking.

Jody said...

How about a color study of one of your prior quilts - changing from a saturated to a neutral scheme...etc?

Jill R. said...

What a great giveaway! For your next project, how about some pillow covers? always fun to change up the look of the couch :)

Gidget said...

I started the butterfly quilt from Tula Pink and I'm just in love with it..
it would be a good one to make....

Myra @ Busy Hands Quilts said...

Hmm, how about a log cabin block like this one I made: http://busyhandsquilts.blogspot.com/2013/10/dogwood-trails-small-lap-or-baby-quilt.html

Montseta - Montsecosecose said...

Wow, love your quilt, you are really into dense quilting nowadays! Perhaps something quilt as you go to try something different.
Terrific giveaway, thanks for the chance to win!

Amorette said...

Mixing in embroidery is fun. I did one with a paper airplane with embroidered flight lines

Unknown said...

I don't know if you'd like this, but I've been wanting to do something in lots of tone-on-tone fabrics, muted, pale, elegant, like damasks, etc. ??? What a wonderful generous giveaway. Thanks!

I made a "birds in the air" quilt that was fun and and colorful. sherrymorton91@gmail.com

LittleHouseontheDairy said...

Thanks for the chance. Maybe it is time to step way from circles for a bit. Triangles or diamonds might be fun

Anonymous said...

I am a fairly new quilter so anything I could recommend would be fairly easy and simple. I should be asking you for ideas. Thank you for the opportunity.

annette said...

wow your quilt is beautiful. i am new to quilting so i would have nothing to suggest as far as technique but maybe something with a scandinavian feel. i don't know.

Anne said...

Sunset is gorgeous! So excited to see it finished! My favorite block is the Log Cabin so I am suggesting that for your next project. Thanks for the giveaway!

Shannon said...

What an awesome fabric selection! I'd vote for EPP- so many different patterns you can make, and I love the hand piecing even though I never thought I would!

Unknown said...

I've just done a few paper pieces from 627 Handworks. hayleymstephens at gmail dot com

bee said...

i'd suggest some improv work - in know i';d like to throw some more of that into my list of things to quilt!

Margaret said...

I've been looking at Alissa Haight Carlton's book "Modern Minimal" a lot lately. I keep going back to the Mosaic quilt on page 68.

2 bees said...

Why don't you do a series for us blog readers about your FMQ tips, you are awesome

Lia*s Handmades said...

Wow, Sunset turned out so fabulous! Can't wait to see more pictures of it. And a whole bundle of Botanics? OMG!!! How awesome are you? Thank you so much for offering these! :D

Unknown said...

Wow, I cannot believe you are giving away this fantastic bundle!!
For your next project, maybe improv with greige?

Karen said...

I follow you on IG and love your matchstick quilting. Glad to see you've finished the latest project - it's beautiful! I love anything with circles and you clearly have them mastered. Maybe MORE circles for your next project?!?! If you arent tired of them!! Thanks for the chance to win!

Stacia, Paper Swallow Events said...

I love the plus sign designed quilts right now. Thanks for the chance!

Diana @ Red Delicious Life said...

Oh my, what an amazing prize you're offering! I'm not sure what to suggest as a next project for you - maybe try something that involves a technique you've not tried before - like trapunto, english paper piecing, or something?

Lori said...

I'm working on UFO's

kbzelazny said...

What a fantastic stack of fabric-I love it! I am thinking about doing a hexie quilt.

Paula said...

What an awesome giveaway!!! I am working aon a pixel road quilt for my son right now!

Julie said...

I can imagine your close quilting and bright colors in an awesome large tote.

Melissa said...

Omggggggggggg I love those fabrics :) I've really been into english paper piecing lately and have been working (long-term, very slowly) on a Bangles quilt. It's really relaxing and portable!!

Deborah said...

You are nice to share!!!! Thanks! How about recycling...that is, using used clothing from your own family members, or something purchased at a thrift shop??

Mara said...

I can't give advice in your quilting adventures you just make the most awesome things, maybe something curvy.

LJ said...

Have you done a Kaleidoscope quilt? I've been really intrigued by them lately.

Heather said...

Maybe a wedding ring. It's always been something I've wanted to tackle. Thanks for the giveaway!

mtnquiltr said...

Beautiful quilt! How about something using the broken herringbone block. It depends so much on fabric choice and placement and it's fun to do!

Maybe you might like to try something like this quilt my friend Jodi G made, she even did a tutorial for the block on her blog.

I want to work on a modernish log cabin. Not sure what i will do yet... but its in my brain and wont leave me alone!

Patty said...

tough question - there are so many wonderful patterns out there. how about tackling bonnie hunter's mystery quilt?

Sara said...

Oh my I love Sunset!! Are those all different colors of thread in there? Amazing texture and color!

I finished a Metro Rings pattern recently that is a DWR pattern basically with a twist. http://joyineverythingthruhim.blogspot.com/2013/12/twinkling-lights.html

Thanks for the fantastic giveaway! Gorgeous quilt, BTW. WOw! I have no suggestions, as I'm a newbie to quilting, but I'm sure you'll get an idea or 10 from some of the other talented ladies! :o)

For your next project, how about the cat block quiilt-along that Elizabeth is hosting right now on her blog, Oh Fransson! I've started making the blocks and they go together very quickly. There are 25 in total!

Bonnie Hunter has a Celtic mystery quilt going on right now. A great scrap busting project!

2014 is the year of the hexie for me. My oldest UFO is a grandmother's flower garden. I would like to finish in 2014.

I have been loving all the log cabin quilts I've been seeing, maybe something along those lines?

Susan R said...

Awesome prize and incredible quilts! I don't think I can give anything inspiring. I only do clothes and wall hangings. My wallhangings are simple embroidered blocks of sports, Christmas theme or princess theme for friends and family. I am thinking about making a wallhanging down the road when the nieces and nephew are older of screen print pictures of them growing up.

Beautiful fabrics! I love star quilts and would love to see how you would modernize this traditional block. Thanks or sharing.

After my Christmas sewing is finished, I'm going to make myself a new Spring Noodlehead Super Tote - it's a fun bag to make and roomy enough for everything. I think that you, too, need to make something for yourself! Thanks for the give away!

Kathy Davis said...

I have only done traditional quilts, so my idea is a new version of the whirligig quilt block. I recently did a maroon and navy one for a local fundraiser. I can picture one with lots of bright colors though. Thanks, Kathy

Kelly said...

Oh, I love botanics! What about Vanessa Christensen's hopscotch quilt? It's so pretty!

Sarah @ Berry Barn Designs said...

After looking at your work, I'm not sure I could suggest anything you're probably not already a pro at! Thanks for the giveaway chance - I am in LOVE with Botanics - i's the succulent prints that make it for me : D

Kathy@KayakQuilting said...

Thanks for an amazing giveaway! Your work is amazing, I really doubt I could provide an original idea! How about a sunrise theme? You do such beautiful work with colors....

Rocio H. said...

Hmmm maybe a Dresden type block with a twist...Thanks for the chance.

Cherry said...

Thanks for a Great Giveaway! Now that you have Sunset, you need Sunrise. Something with a almost misty quality to the colors- intense but lighter, softer.

Anne said...

Oh man I don't even know what *I'm* going to work on next. Hrmmm... how about the steampunk quilt? Thanks for a gorgeous giveaway!

Katherine said...

Don't know if I'd be able to come up with something that would inspire you - however, I come here to be inspired all the time. Can't wait to see more photos of this finish, Leanne. That matchstick quilting is fabulous!

I am in love with Botanics - such a wonderful line. Thanks so much for your amazing giveaway!

Heather62 said...

What about a quilt with some hand embroidery?

DebraKay Neiman said...

Under my Christmas tree is so bare, botanics would fill all my wishes. I cannot begin to think of a suggestion at the moment, since I am a novice and here to absorb talent from you great bloggers. Merry Christmas. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

Sherry said...

The fabric in your giveaway is fabulous. I am a new quilter so I spend my time searching blogs like yours for inspiration and ideas for new projects. Maybe someday I will be dreaming up new quilt designs.

Tracey said...

I've enjoyed watching your circle quilts come together. Maybe something like the My Compass quilt in Denyse's Modern Quilts Traditional Inspiration.

How about a glam clam quilt. It is such a great pattern

Quiet Play is having a new Paper Piecing Quilt-a-long in 2014 titled Retro Kitchen. It looks really cute! Don't know if you do paper piecing, but it looks like fun!

Kathy Boice said...
