The winner of Folk-Art Favorites is Marcia Kosturock! Congratulations Marcia! Cheers. Enjoy the patterns.

‘Tis the season and ’tis said ’tis better to give than to receive. In that spirit I’m making it a month of giveaways!

I was recently in dire need of a file pocket. I usually raid the DH’s office supplies but he was totally out, dang it. I searched my office, and my eyes lit on my collection of Magazines That Have My Stuff In Them, in the perfect file pocket. So I dumped them out for the moment, to deal with later.

Later came, and as I was sorting through the stack I realized that I have four copies of the first issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks issue. I really don’t need four copies. I’m keeping a couple for the archives, and that leaves two copies that I can offer in a drawing.


Here’s my block, Number 8.


The second issue of this fabulous special publication is on sale now. I’m not in that one, but I submitted blocks for the third and fourth, and I’ll let you know about that when the time comes.

If you’d like to win a copy of this first issue, leave a comment by 7:00 p.m. California time on Thursday, December 9. U.S. and Canada only. I’ll draw two winners. Those subscribed by email or feed reader, remember to click over to the blog itself to leave your comment.

Then, on December 11, there’ll be another giveaway event! I’m participating in the Quilt Pattern Magazine blog tour countdown, so stay tuned for that as well! After that comes my birthday and I like to do something a little special for that too.

This is fun.

Until next time,
By Kay Mackenzie

    Congratulations to the winner of Folk Art Favorites.
    I haven’t yet purchased either of the “100 Blocks” publications; I know I’d enjoy this first issue, so thanks for the importunity to win.

    I don’t have the first edition of “100 Block,” but would love to have it for my birthday on December 20th.

    Your patterns are an inspiration. Hoping to win the first “100 Block.” Thank you.

  27. geomauldin on December 8th, 2010 1:53 am

    I spend time at Border’s Bookstore looking over the 14+ quilt magazines. I saw the second addition – and thought – “ohh!! I’d love to get the first one too.” I’m sure the first is as good as the second!! I also enjoy your blog – hugs and all, Georjana

  28. Vicki H on December 8th, 2010 2:02 pm

    How amazing it must be to open a magazine and have something you created be in it. That must be awesome. Congrats but I guess you are probably used to having your work published. Either way, it would still be cool!!!

  29. Cynthia on December 8th, 2010 5:38 pm

    The winner of this magazine will be thrilled, I am sure. How nice of you to give it away. Who knows? Maybe it will be my turn to finally win something. Happy Holidays!

  30. Sue on December 8th, 2010 7:46 pm

    I just found out about this magazine from looking at the new one on the news stands. Would love to have the first one! You are so generous to give them away. Happy Holidays!!!

  31. Richard Lavimoniere on December 8th, 2010 9:17 pm

    It would be great to have this magazine to add to my collection. It looks like there are a great many little blocks to sew with my nimble little fingers!

  32. marianne on December 9th, 2010 6:13 am

    Would love to win!! Thanks for the chance.

  33. Susan on December 9th, 2010 9:53 am

    I would love to have a copy of that magazine. The patterns look great. I just found your blog a few days ago and have added you to my RSS feed.

    Keep up the good work!
