Week 15: Block a Day Calendar and GIVEAWAY

Yes, you heard that right! I have some extra Block a Day calendars that I would love to give away and you could win won of those. These are now out of print and they are at a premium. This will be a random drawing (USA residents only) which I will make next Monday April 17, to be announced on Tuesday April 18.

Yes, a GIVEAWAY of this awesome Block a Day calendar.

I have a winner: Brenda A. of Oregon. Congratulations, Brenda!

This is perpetual (ie, not tied to any year) and has so many great ideas. This is limited to USA residents only because it is so heavy that I have to use Priority Mail (or you can opt to pay postage if you are international, if you win.)

Quilter's Block a Day Calendar


First, let's look at this week's blocks as Patricia Bryant of Australia interpreted them from my Block a Day Calendar:

April 9: Five Patch Frame
April 9: Five Patch Frame, 10"
April 10: Footstool
April 10: Footstool, 10"

April 11: Fruit Basket
April 11: Fruit Basket, 10"
 April 12: Goshen Star

 April 13: Hen and Chicks

April 13: Hen and Chicks, 9"
 April 14: Hope of Hartford

April 14: Hope of Hartford, 10"
 April 15: Arbor Window

April 15: Arbor Window, 12"
Now for the GIVEAWAY! This will last until after Easter. Contest ends midnight (EST) Monday, April 17. All I want to know is which block you've enjoyed seeing the most, either this week or in the past weeks. There is no wrong answer!

I will pick one person and give the winner 24 HOURS TO REPLY. Then I move on to the next person. Check your email on Tuesday April 18 if you're interested in winning.

This is limited to USA residents unless you are willing to pay international postage. USA postage is about $7 Priority Mail (which I pay). I will pay the first $7 international postage if an international winner is up to paying the remainder. (Or I will give you any pattern in my Craftsy shop in lieu of the calendar.)

Thanks for stopping by. More blocks next Sunday!

  1. I have so enjoyed seeing all these beautiful blocks as well as so wonderfully photo'ed to highlight them. So hard to pick a favorite and I even went back to view them all. One that just made me say ' have to make that one' was the 8 Hands Round.

  27. After reviewing past posts my favorites (yes, 2) so far are from this week: Footstool (LOVE LOVE LOVE those zebra stripes!!) and Goshen Star (my dad served on the USS Goshen in WWII). Thanks again for sharing these blocks each week and the inspiration that comes with them. I have enjoyed seeing them in their various settings, and look forward to trying out some project ideas after I finish my 2 Expo class projects. (janeherbst at roadrunner dot com)

  36. So many beautiful blocks! I love the possibilities of the five patch frame to showcase favorite fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Home Circle for Feb. 10, is my favorite, maybe because the hexagon shape fascinates me and this one is unique. The post with the Jan. 26th block made me smile. My neighbor is from Australia and loves "Vegemite."

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would have to choose the footstool. Love this block and also love the footstool itself. Would love to put my feet up on there and do some hand sewing and relax.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm having a hard time choosing! I couldn't pick just one, so Sawtooth Pinwheel and Square Deal. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  42. I love the April 9, 5 patch frame by Patricia Bryant of Australia. It reminds me of a postcard with beautiful bluebonnets, our Texas state flower. Hope I win. I personally own the calendar, but my sister has just gotten into quilting and I would like to gift it to her. She's my big sister, by 2 years. Love your newsletter and your ideas.

  55. It feels like every one is nicer than the one before! But today I am especially charmed by the hen and chicks. Maybe because my friends just picked up their new flock yesterday. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm partial to stars and baskets, so George Washington Star from week 8 would be a starter, followed by Hope of Hartford and Fruit Basket to make some great quilts!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hello Debbie! I had to go back and look at all of the blocks to see if I could pick a favorite. This was a very difficult task! I was also extremely disappointed in myself, I missed quite a few of the posts or did not comment. Not like me at all. So therefore, I was really glad that I did go back and look. I finally settled on TWINKLE STAR the January 28 block! Being totally honest though, there are so many that I loved or adored and would absolutely have a blast making that I am praying already that my name will be the one drawn! Thank you for sharing these great blocks that Patricia made and displays so wonderfully and that you designed for us and are now having this great give away opportunity! Have a great day!
