Design Studio Giveaway

At the beginning of 2009, I started writing a column for each issue of Quiltmaker called Design Studio. Each column covers a different topic and encourages you to try these ideas and post your pictures in our Design Studio gallery. So far, I’ve covered working with preprinted panels and blocks, striped fabrics and blocks colored half light and half dark. Have you tried any of these ideas?

Post a picture of something you’ve made using one of these ideas to a Design Studio gallery and leave a comment here telling us about it to be entered for a drawing. I’ll select 3 names and each will receive one of the table runners using striped fabrics from our May/June issue. I’ll draw the names on Tuesday, 6/30 at noon Mountain time.

    I am so sorry about the horrible spelling in the last post. :-| I was so excited to tell you about the gorgeous tablerunner I didn’t bother to proof-read. :-)

    The table runner with a bonus placemat arrived! It si gorgeaus. The pics didn’t do the colors justice. The colors are bright and crisp and fit into my color scheme perfectly. Thank you so very much for hosting this give-away. Take care and God bless, Cory

    I have made several quilts using preprinted panels. One is using the biker bugs panel to make a quilt for my nephew.
    The other is using a wolf panel for a quilt for my stepson.
    These links should take you directly to the posts on my blog. I have posted pics of both of them in your design gallery. Take care and God bless, Cory

    I made an applique block and couldn’t decide which would look better- a dark backgound or a light background. So I used half and half. I posted a picture of it to the design studio gallery (not sure the post was successful)
    And I just finished a “give away” baby blanket using pre-printed blocks.
