My all time favorite patterns..........and a giveaway!

I have a few patterns that are definitely my favorite. I love all of my patterns, but these three patterns are the ones that make me extra happy. I look at my quilt samples often, and these three always stick out to me. So, I thought it would be fun to share with you what my favorite Green Fairy Quilts patterns are.

Butterfly Mania - I just love this quilt because of the happy butterflies and the bright colors. I love bright quilts.

Checkered Flowers - This quilt is probably my all time favorite pattern, it's easy because it is strip pieced and fun with the flower appliques, but I think I like it the most because I love purple. Purple was my favorite color as a child, that has since changed because I do tend to love green (I wonder why?) but it reminds me of some of my favorite things as a kid - flowers and purple.


Morning Bloom - This is one of my newer quilt patterns, I love the colors, can't go wrong with pink and green right? The piecing is easy and the applique even easier because it has the ragged effect. I just love this quilt!


So, here is my last kit of "Morning Bloom" and I think it would be fun to give it away to someone who really wants it. After all it is one of my favorite quilts and it would be fun for someone to make one just like mine. The kit includes the pattern, and everything for the top of the quilt and the binding.

All you have to do to enter my giveaway is to hop on over to my website on my pattern page, click here, and tell me which three patterns are your favorites. Tell me why you think you need the quilt kit more than any other person that enters and I will announce a winner on Tuesday night next week! Good luck everyone. Oh, and before I forget, you get 10 entries if you blog about my giveaway!

I like Craisy Daisy, All Boxed In and of course, Morning Bloom. I need this kit because I need to make a baby quilt by February. This would be perfect! Thanks for the chance.

Meg said...

I love Strippin Time, Morning Bloom, and Layers of Love. This quilt kit needs to come live with me because I have THREE friends having little girls this spring, and I'm running out of ideas for little girl quilts!!

arlette said...

Hello Judy, it's hard to choose from your patterns, but my favorites are: Butterfly Mania, Morning Bloom and
Life of a Snowman Wall Hanging Pattern, I'd like to be the lucky winner, because where I live it's hard (almost impossible) to find quilting supplies, and if you have the luck to find anything it's hyper expensive, that's the reason I NEED and WANT the quilt kit more than any other person that enters, :)and having some of your patterns I know it'll be unique on here!, I promise I'm going to blog about it later on today, -sad- because I'd like to have the patterns for me!!!

Mandy said...

My three favourites are,

1. All boxed in
2. Strip this Quilt
3. Strippin' Time

I just love them all so much it was very hard to pick only 3!

I would love to have your quilt kit because I'm really new to quilting and I haven't had a lot of experience and I also don't have much of a stash, so when I buy a pattern generally I have to buy the fabric to go with it. So right now kits are the way to go.

I also think it's amazing the work you do with children in Romania... and today even before I knew you were doing a giveaway, I did a blog post about your store and the positive experience I've had there so far!!!

Doina said...

Great giveaway!I like - Butterfly Mania, Liliana's Heart and Autum Harvest Wall Hanging Pattern. In Romania the quilting is not too familiar. We have not specialized stores. It could be my first pattern.

Quilt Hollow said...

Hi Judi,
I love most of your patterns just need time right?! OK so here is my list...I've told you the tote many times over so I'll keep to that one right off, Frame This and I'm going with Paisley Park because I did buy and make that one and it was fun and easy!!
Now why do I want this other kit you ask? Do I need it? NO Would I make it? You betcha!! I made Paisley Park for sis and it was wonderful to have the whole kit to just dig into and complete! I WANT to do the same with Morning Bloom and keep this one for myself!

Quilt Hollow said...

Forgot to mention your on my blog with reluctance but this will spread like wild fire anyway. Tee Hee

Kortnee said...

I love all your quilt patterns! My favorites are Strippin' Time, Craisy Daisy and Butterfly Mania. I NEED to get this kit so that I can make my FIRST quilt EVER. I have been dying to make a quilt, but don't know where to start. This would give me a GREAT place to start. Have a Happy Day!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

My three favorites are Checkered Cherries, Checkered Tote and Strip This Quilt. I would love to win your quilt kit because I have never tried one of your patterns before, but from what I hear, they are fabulous. Another reason is that I don't have any good quilt shops close-by (Joann's doesn't count!) and I have such a hard time picking out fabrics that go together. At least with this pattern and fabric, I know the result would be wonderful. Thanks for the chance!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

I just published a post about this giveaway on my website, but I do hope no one sees it!

I'm having a giveaway right now too, for a bag pattern, if you're interested.

Robin said...

Stars and Stripes
Celebrate America
Pink and Brown Spring Quilt.

But I really like them all.

I would love to win this giveaway because I just got a new sewing machine after a 15 year hiatus and would love to have this kit to jump start my renewed love of sewing.

Nancy said...

All Boxed In, Fun With Triangles, and Quilts Within a Quilt. Now -

Why should I win thee? Let me count the ways.
I love fabric to the depth and breadth and height
My fingers can touch, when feeling out of sorts
From the ends of Selvages and ideal patterns.
I love fabric to the level of quilter's
most quiet need, by sun and lamplight.
I love fabric freely, as quilters strive for perfection;
I love fabric purely, as quilters turn from praise.
I love fabric with a passion put to use in all my frustrations, and with my childhood's faith.
I love fabric with a love I seemed to lose with my lost hobbies - I love fabric with the breath, smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose, my family shall love my fabric better after I die, for those that die with the most fabric wins!
(My very deepest apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning)

Nancy said...

I love all of your patterns and often browse through them wishing I could buy another one. I think my favorite right now is Morning Bloom and I would LOVE to win that kit you are giving away! You have such a great shop and I appreciate all of your creativeness!

Nancy

Cory said...

It is sooo hard to choose my favorites. I would make the quilt and donate it to my church's Hugs Ministry. We pair the quilts with stuffies and give them to the local fire department to give to kids in crisis situations. Thank you for the opportunity to win this beautiful kit. Take care and God bless, Cory

Mary Burn said...

We make quilts for our new babies in our church -- also, quilts for preemies at local hospital. I would use the Morning Bloom kit to make one of these. My other favorites are Butterfly Mania and Crazy Daisy. Thanks for including me in your giveaway.

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Grandmas'Trellis is still my favorite! I love Judi's Album and Morning bloom too though you make it very hard to pick just three with your talented designs!

I would love to win because it would be fun!! Also with the kit maybe I would actually get a quilt made- I keep procrastinating as it seems just so difficult trying to figure out all the colors and fabrics!

Rebecca said...

I love those three too! Some more of my favorites are Stars and Stripes, the Turtle Walk, and Strippin' Time. I'd love to win this quilt because I have three girls and this would look great as a wallhanging in their room or as a lap quilt on one of their beds. Thanks for the chance!

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

I got the post up about your sweet giveaway!

Rooster Inn Primitives said...

I love all the quilts and its so hard to choose. I like Quilted Memories, All Boxed In and Butterfly Mania...

I would love to win. I want to learn to quilt. I have bought books and books and still haven't tried. Just thinking about picking out the colors that would go together scares me. I want to make a quilt for my granddaughter and grandson so that they can remember me when i'm gone. So thanks so much for giving me a change to win this kit.

Hugs
Pam

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

I love all your patterns :)

Especially...Craisy Daisy, Dancing Diagonals, and Froggie goes a courtin'.

I would love to win this quilt kit so my daughter can make her first complete quilt. She would have everything she needs right there plus wonderful directions!

Chere said...

I think I like Rick the Rack, Butterfly Fields, and Checkered Cherries the best, but it was a hard choice! Please enter me in the giveaway--I'd love to make that quilt!

Rooster Inn Primitives said...

I just blogged about your give away and linked it back to here. I really want to win. LOL

Hugs
Pam

Barb said...

As you know, I have been to your store many times and many times that you don't even know about. I love your store but I will say that the purple quilt above is my favorite....I love the simplicity, along with the flowers.

I will blog about this.

I have already won one of your giveaway so it would be best if I just comment because you are a friend and not because I want the kit....let it go to someone else.

Katie B. said...

All Boxed In
Dancing Diagonals
Layers of Love

Thanks for the chance to win! I've just gotten in to quilting, and I really need all of the experience I can get.

Jo said...

I pick Sail Away, Stars and Stripes and Stripping Time.
Your morning bloom kit looks like a challenge for me as I don't applique...But I would be up to learn something new.

COUNTRY PICKINS said...

THEY ARE ALL SO BEAUTIFUL THAT IT IS REALLY HARD TO CHOOSE, BUT IT WILL HAVE TO BE BUTTERFLY MANIA, CRAISY DAISEY, AND MORNING BLOOM. I REALLY THINK I NEED TO WIN THIS SO I HAVE SOMETHING TO OCCUPY ME WHILE I AM ON CRUTCHES FOR 2 MONTHS AFTER SURGERY. IT WOULD JUST MAKE MY LIFE SO HAPPY AND I WOULD BE FOREVER GRATEFUL. i COULD NOT ASK FOR MORE THAN THAT. hUGS, lINDA gypsyluv1010@gmail.com

Sandy said...

Liliana's Heart is lovely. Thanks for having such a nice giveaway. Quilting is something I've always wanted to try but am intimidated by choosing colors and all the cutting. Can you help out? I'd love to win.
Sandy

Katie Bishop said...

I love autumn leaves, Liliana's Heart, Craisy Daisy! Thanks!

Iva said...

In no particular order, I like Summer's End, Daphne's Garden Quilt, and Morning Bloom. But all your patterns are nice. However, I especially enamored of your quilting. It's amazing how much detail you put into each quilt, and amazingly beautiful!

Carrie P. said...

The 3 patterns I like most are Stars and Stripes, Life of a Snowman, and Grandma's trellis.
The reason I would love to win this quilt is because pink and green are my favorite colors and I love to do applique.
Thanks for letting me play along.

DiahRothman said...

Judi, I love this... all... but if you let me choose I love the Morning Bloom..... 'cos I am giving this to my dearest daughter's birthday this coming February.

onlymehere said...

Gee, I have to narrow it down to three?! I love Butterfly Mania and am collecting fabric to make it for my granddaughter's birthday. I like Autumn Harves. I have a real weakness for autumn and the colors associated with it. I also like Brown and Pink Spring. I would really like to win this quilt bz for the next two years I won't have any money to buy much fabric and I need a new project or two to keep me busy while my son is gone for that time! I'm not trying to pull the sympathy card though bz I also really like the colors of the quilt and the pattern. Wish me luck, lol!

Renee G said...

My three favorites are Stars and Stripes, Butterfly Mania and Carrots and Peas.
I would love to have this quilt kit, because I just seem to have a terrible time coming up with matching fabrics. I just don't seem to have the knack for coordinating fabrics.

isa & marta said...

hOLA HE VISTO TODOS SUS PATRONES, ES DIFICIL DECIRLE CUALES ME GUSTAN MAS, PERO ESTOS TRES SON LOS QUE ELEGÍ: BUTTERFLY MANIA POR LA BELLEZA Y EXPLOSION DE COLORES, LUEGO FLIG OF A FAIRY POR EL MOVIMIENTO QUE SUGIERE LA IMAGEN. Y POR ULTIMO SAIL AWAY, POR LOS MOTIVOS MARINOS, ES HERMOSO.
POR QUE ME GUSTARIA GANARLOS PUES PORQUE ES LA UNICA OPORTUNIDAD DE TENER PATRONES Y DISEÑOS ORIGINALES, NI HABLAR DELOS COLORES Y CALIDAD.

scottylover said...

Hi! Besides Morning Bloom, my three favorites are Rick the Rack *Would love to make it in solids alternating with a print) Square chase and Turtle walk. Why do I think I should win this...Hmmm...I love pink...it's my favorite color...and pink and green together are scrumptious...I'm in a crazy time at work (I work in benefits and it is enrollment time) and use quilting to de-stress, so this would help...

arlette said...

Hey Judi! I already blogged about your giveaway, I really like to win the patterns, can you see my high blood pressure?, it's because the patterns, please pronounce the magic words for me: the winner is... arlette, lol! http://arlette0521.blogspot.com/2009/11/go-to-green-fairy-quilts-and-find-it.html

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My three favorite patterns that you designed are Sunshine, Square Chase and Paisley Park.
I think I need the quilt kit more than any other person that enters because my very first grandbaby is due in May and I'm just sure it is going to be a girl!!

Lundholm Fam said...

I would have to say I love all of you patterns. They are all really cute. But I love strippin time, craisy daisy and frame this. Why do I deserve to win, its my birthday on the day you are announcing the winner. What better way to spend your birthday than to find out you won a giveaway. Thanks.

I blogged about your giveaway.

Erin said...

My 3 favorites are Frame This, Morning Bloom, and Strippin' Time.

I would love to win this quilt kit because it is super cute and would be a ton of fun to make!

I also blogged about your giveaway :) Thanks!!

Millie said...

I love all your patterns and your machine quilting is out of this world. If I do have to pick 3 patterns, I will go with Quilts within a Quilt, All Boxed in and Square chase. There are so many reasons why I love to win the Morning Bloom kit...it is cute, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pattern and fabrics. As a follower of your blog I have admire your work for a long time and to own one of your kits and patterns will be wonderful.

Debi said...

Hmmm they are all really nice, but my favorite is the Life of a Snowman,then Morning Bloom and Strip this Quilt (love jelly rolls). I really love the fabrics in the Morning Bloom quilt and if I win it, I will donate the finished quilt to Project Linus.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Wow, that's a tough one Judi, not only because I love all your patterns but also because I can't honestly say that I need this wonderful kit more than anyone else but I can say without reservation that I would LOVE to have it. I don't have a blog so this is my one entry. Good Luck Everyone!!!

susan said...

It's hard to choose just 3 favorites bu my three favorite-est are Rick the Rack, Piecemaker's Dream and Checkered Flowers. A great bunch of patterns and so versatile. Why should I win? I love pink and green, I've never made anything pink and green, and since it's a crazy time of year for me (my baby moved across country to LA and I MISS him!) maybe something pink and green and beautiful would be just the thing to work on.

Asiyah said...

I like Quilts within a Quilt, Sail Away and Layers of Love.

I'd be lying if I said I need the quilt kit more than one of the other commenters...UFO, anyone? But I'd still love to win it because they are too cute to pass on.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Jenny said...

my favorite three patterns are:
frame this
layers of love
all boxed in.
i would love to have this quilt...I am trying to get my sister to start quilting, she has the knowledge but just needs some encouragement...this kit could be my extra encouragmeent..i just know we woudl have so much fun quilting together!!

Dawn said...

My three favorite patterns are Sail Away, Layers of Love and Morning Bloom. Thanks for the chance to win!

zarina said...

I like the butterfly mania - love butterflies and colors

Sam said...

Greetings from Albany, Western Australia. I really like your Autumn Leaves wall hanging - probably because we don't have a Fall here in WA - all evergreens - but I love the Autumn colours. I also like the checkered tote and the checkered flower quilt pattern 'cos they just look like fun. I would really like this kit - I have never made a quilt from a kit and would love to have a go. With five kids, cost is a big issue so would be a great opportunity for me. Thanks for making this possible. Sam s.downes@murdoch.edu.au

PunkiePie said...

Hard choices! Here are my top 3:

1. Strippin' Time
2. Crazy Daisy
3. Butterfly Mania

I sure could use the quilt kit for two reasons:
1. I'm re-decorating my little girl's room and could use some inspiration
2. My BFF is having her second daughter in December and the quilt would make a great gift!

thanks for the chance!

PunkiePie said...

I have posted on my blog as well.

Gnomemade said...

I love your patterns - especially the Life of a Snowman, Dancing Diagonal's and Butterfly Fields.

As for why I need the kit the most? Well, I'm getting married in June and pink and green are my colors, and the flowers remind me of the Gerber Daisies I'm using in my bouquet! This quilt is just so perfect!

Kim said...

I love your designs and have been a silent blog admirer/follower. I don't yet have a blog of my own, but I will someday. Anyhow my 3 favorite patterns are:

All Boxed In
Carrots & Peas
Frame This

I am no more deserving of the kit than anyone else but would love to make this for the little girl who lives next door. I currently only have grandsons.

MERCEDES said...

me encanta tu sorteo y si es de telas mas,me vendrian estupendamente por que quiero hacer una "enagua" para mi mesa y me encantaria que fuese original como lo son esas telas,te voy a oner un enlace en mi blog y espero tener suerte...te invito a mi sorteo que es muy pequeñito pero esta hecho con mucha ilucion...un saludo desde España(Andalucia)

Mystica said...

We do not have quilting stores or shops in Sri Lanka. We do have fabric available but no special fabrics like the way you do! Also no jelly rolls, layer cakes and pre cuts which must make life so easy. I would love to win. I would love to win Butterfly Mania to make a quilt for my daughter who adores butterflies. All your patterns are beautiful and choosing one is a very difficult choice.

James said...

HI! WOW! What a really nice Quilt Give-away! Crazy Daisy, Morning Bloom and Butterfly Mania are SO SO NEAT! I'm BRAND new at quilting so you have already taken the HARD out and presented a Pattern and Fabric--Yes!

Christine said...

My favorite patterns are: Craisy Daisy, Quilted Bag, and Strippin' Time. I think I need the quilt kit more than anyone else because I am finally sewing again (after taking a 5 year break) and enjoying every moment of it - it would be a fun next project!

Rachel said...

Can I pick FOUR favourites instead of three? I like:
checkered cherries
autumn harvest
life of a snowman
froggie goes a courtin'

They're all so nice!

Why do I need a quilt kit more than anyone else? Well, I probably don't need one MORE than anyone else, but Christmas is coming and I get two weeks of vacation... gotta have something to do during my time off!!!

Rachel said...

Hi again, Judi!
I just blogged about your wonderful giveaway.


Rachel

Deb said...

My very favorite is Strippin' Time, then Crazy Daisy, and Turtle Walk. I love lots of your patterns and would love to win Morning Bloom. I need the quilt kit more than anyone else because I love to garden, and it reminds me of spring and planting time. I'd love to work on it this winter in anticipation of spring!

Reenie said...

Let's see..my favorites would have to be Butterfly Fields, Butterfly Mania and Carrots and Peas.
Why do I need the quilt kit? That is easy..because I am a quilter and I have to feed the insatiable quilting monster inside me!!

Deb said...

Hi Judi! I just blogged about your giveaway here:

Kaye said...

Hi Judi, my favorites are Butterfly Mania, Frame This Quilt and Life of a Snowman. Why should I win? the kit is beautiful and I would really appreciate it. Thank you for the opportunity to try and get it

Sarah said...

My 3 favorite patterns are Daphne's Garden, Butterfly Fields, and Autumn Harvest.

And I need the pattern most...because...hmmm...I'm addicted to quilting!!! :)

Susan said...

My three favorites are All Boxed In, Liliana's Heart, and Quilts Within a Quilt . . . and it took a while to choose those three from all those beautiful patterns! :)

Susan said...

I forgot to say why I need this pattern! I need it because I've never made a quilt, and a kit would be the perfect start!

Susan said...

I blogged about it too!

annie2006 said...

i love butterfly mania, and of course morning bloom!
i am a beginner when it comes to quilts, and a kit would be perfect to give me the push i need to actually make a start :)

Annelise said...

My favorite is Butterfly Mania!

It will look great on the wall in my small girl-grandchildrens room! I don't see them very often, so they can remember me by looking at the quilt!

Carin said...

Okay I love
All Boxed In
Checkered Cherry's
and Celebrate America

Carin said...

I also blogged about it :O)

Carrie said...

I love them all. I am new to your blog, I can't wait to read more of your post
Carrie

Aldana said...

My favourite is Butterfly mania.
And, i need for a quilt for mi girl Valentina. Here in Argentina these precious fabrics dont´exist and i love!!!!
Sorry but my english is very bad

carmel said...

rick the rack, checkered cherries and saild away are my favorites! but there were more patterns that i loved! so it was hard to pick!!!
and why do i think that i deserve to win? becues i never made a quilt before {exept rag quilts} and i cant wait to make one!
bacues i live in israel and there are no quilting stores or quilting patterns to by any where...
and becues i have no way of ordering on line from other contries....
so, i think that those are true and painfull reasons i am sherring with you....
so thanks for yourgiveaway!
i became a follower 2!!

Love 2 Quilt said...

It's hard to decide by I like All Boxed In, Frame This, and Inch by Inch the most. paweis at yahoo dot com

Aunt Pitty Pat's Fun said...

Oh no its Tuesday Night and I bet I am too late for the drawing. I am always a dollar short and an hour late to everything :)
Rick Rack
All boxed in
Turtle Walk
Thanks for the chance to win your wonderful prizes... I deserve them because its all about me!!!

Diane said...

Another late entry! I like Grace, Peas & Carrots and of course Morning Bloom. As to why I need the kit more than anyone else... well... just because!

Jackie Davis said...

My favorite Green Fairy Quilts Patterns are....
- Dancing Diagnols
- Square Chase
- The Turtle Walk

Why do I need a quilt kit more than any other entry? The quilt will go to a child in Guatemala. My quilt friends and I are missionaries to Guatemala and we don't have a 'quilt budget' and rely completely on donations of everything to quilt with (material, thread, machines, etc). Our quilts are made up and it would be a firat to have and use a real pattern with matching fabric. That would be awesome!

i posted your giveaway on my blog: http://tinyurl.com/JackieQuiltBlog

PS: I have a stateside addy in FL, if i win for it to be sent to :)

La mamma curiosa said...

I NEED the butterfly mania!! trust me, I need it... I am a beginner and I am sure I would take all my time an concentratio to end it up for my daugter... You don't want somebody to stop quilting just because she did non have the right pattern...

Ida13 said...

Life of a snowman
Quilted bag
Brown and pink
These are my favs, but a could write more...
I'll blog about your giveaway.

Ida13 said...

Sorry! I changed the week!

CrochetnQuilt said...

I like the Butterfly Mania, Turtlewalk and Liliana's Heart Quilt Patterns.

While realistically I may not need the quilt kit more than someone else, it sure would help during the week. I accepted a position 4hours away from my family and while blessed to have a job, the separation is tough. I do now have more appreciation for those who are separated not by their choice.

Stefy said...

Hi. My favourite kit is Butterfly Mania. I love buttefly and i like the colours you used. I'd like to win it for my two daughters. During the last months i've only produced swarovski jewelry and painting with country painting. This will be a good occasion to start again with patchwork.
Bye and congratulations for your quilts.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I love your new pattern Morning Bloom. So bright and cheerful. And I also love Dragonfly Fields, and Butterfly Mania (also Crasy Daisy, but that makes 4 favs :-) I would love to have the kit, mostly because I have never bought a kit before, and it would be great to make a quilt that actually looks like the pattern!!! And this one is so lovely. Thanks for such a generous giveaway.
