New Pattern Giveaway

Oklahoma Twister Pattern

I designed this pattern a  few years ago and I made the one I showed on the last blog. I gave the pattern to a friend and her mother made the one above and I think they liked it so much that they have made like 3 more. It is such a simple each quilt and fun to do. I really didn't think that it was a fancy enough quilt to sell the pattern. But, Sew Cal Gal recommended that I do the pattern up and sell it so I am launching the pattern today with a giveaway. Its Mothers Day tomorrow and what better way to celebrate than a giveaway.;) You can also buy it from Inchwormfabrics.com .

Just leave a comment about what style of quilting you like most.

I know I prefer piecing. I never seem to get my applique to look very professional (my OCD shows through, if it isn't perfect it is awful) and I don't even want to go there.  Paper piecing puts me in a foul mood (trust me, you don't want to be around) because I skimp to much on the fabric (really hate to waste good fabric) and end up having to take it out again and again. I love piecing, when the corners and points turn out nice it makes it worth all the effort. You know the feeling when every thing comes together.....yes it is a good feeling.

Tell your friends, the more people the merrier and I may give away more than one pattern. Barb over at Bejeweled Quilts is also giving away a copy of this pattern.....OOPS almost forgot to tell you when I am choosing a winner. How about next Saturday? I seem to get to busy during the week, I still have to go to work  everyday and it is garden season again. Have a great weekend and a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.

  1. Ohh I much prefer piecing. I don't like applique, too much work for me. I've done a little paper piecing, but really love the look of square blocks. Boring maybe, but it is what I love

  3. I really like the looks of applique, but as a beginner, I've only done piecing. So I guess my favorite at this point has to be piecing, just because it's all I have done. :-)

  11. I prefer piecing with a touch of needle turn applique. It gives me the speed of machine piecing with the relaxation of hand stitching. Your pattern is wonderful.

  12. I love your OK Twister. I am mainly a traditional quilter.

  13. Love your Oklahoma Twister. I started laughing when I read your reasons for liking piecing, you were describing me. Piecing is my favorite but I do like to applique a little but it takes forever as it has to be as close to perfect as possible.

  16. This is a great design. I love many techniques in quilting depending on the day! My favourites though are applique & paper piecing. Thanks for a chance at the give-away.

  19. It's a very fun pattern! I love to do applique quilts, but sometimes I just have to do some pieced quilts and prefer those that are a bit challenging.

  20. I prefer piecing. I like hand applique, but my stitches are not consistent so I'm never happy with the results.
    It's a lovely pattern. Thank you for offering the giveaway.

  21. Machine piecing is my fav (and a challenge is nice but not necessary). I also do applique and paper piecing

  22. I like piecing best, especially on my hand cranks. Hand quilting is fun on smaller projects.

  23. I love piecing and cutting fabric :) Thanks for sharing your pattern!

  24. I like liberated piecing the blocks - then measuring for the sashing and borders. Thanks for the chance.

  25. Thank you for the giveaway. I like to piece, but I love to applique. It just seems to put life into the block you are making.

  26. I'm a piecer! That's why this pattern is so appealing. I see the motion, and from a distance you get that rounded corners/swirly look, with all straight line piecing.

  27. I am a piecer by nature. Would much rather piece circles than applique them. Have done some pretty intricate piecing, and this pattern strikes a great tornado chord in me.

  28. I'm a scrappy piecer - lovely pattern
