Congratulations Linda!
I love your quilt 'Beyond the Hill'
Green is my favourite colour and consequently I have quite a lot of green fabrics but you can never have too many can you??? It's such a versatile colour!

Anita in Florida said...

I love to do applique (raw edge) flowers...and greens are very important. But even if I didn't applique, I could find some good use for your wonderful fabrics. Thanks for the chance.

Karen said...

Earth tones are my favorite colors to work with.
Your fabrics look oh so yummy. Your quilt shown is very artistic and the colors work oh so well.

Mary said...

As it so happens, purple and green are two of my favorite colors, especially when used in combination. One of my goals for 2012 is to develop my applique skills.

Zizophora said...

I love these colors, and especially Beyond the Hill. It glows!

Debbie said...

Green is good, too! I think you should give away a small finished piece of work of yours. I would be honored to have it!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I love the green!! Very pretty.

Susan Turney said...

connie said...

YABBA DABBA DO! to Limey Avocado Dippity Do Da!!

I am going to create a crazy quilt in honor of my grandmother and her favorite colors were green and purple. I have showcased some of her crocheting on my blog in those colors!

These fabrics would look fabulous in the piece!

We are supposed to email one friend for each giveaway right -- I will do you one better than that...I will be posting about your giveaways on the HGTV Quilting and Needlework Forum..I think I have close to 200 friends over there! :)

PattyBYoung said...

Iris are purple and green. Wimbledon colors are purple and green. P&G is my all time favorite color combo. Grand prize - a sample from each color! What a treat!

Thearica said...

Forgot to say what was one of the best gifts I have ever given... I choose someone new each Christmas to give a surprise gift to. It is someone that I normally do not buy for..

One year that person was a lady named Kay. When I walked up to her and reached out the box, she had a puzzled look on her face. I told her Merry Christmas and she did not know what to say. She finally opened the box and immediately started to cry. She said if I had known you were bringing me something, I would have had you something.

I told her that was why I didn't tell her. :)

I love this pattern! And I love the colors you used! I would love to win these fabrics and green is my favorite color! I am emailing your blog to my friend Andrea. She'll love this!

Nicki said...

Beyond the Hill is gorgeous. I love the colors you used in it. I would love to win the Limey Avocado Dippity Do Da fabric package.

judi said...

love the lime green!!!! pick me! my favorite colors to work in are all of them! most of my quilts are scrappy looking.

gatheredthreads said...

Purple is my favourite colour - I think because it is a little less commonly used. Green is really the ultimate nature colour, isn't it.

Linda said...

Thanks.......Lime and purple are good too.....but I don't want to be a pig!!!!!!!!!!

Lisa Hart said...

My 8 year old daughter's first favorite colors were green and purple. Thank you for offering a fun give away!

Cathy H said...

purple and green...two of my favourite colours.....

Gayle from MI said...

I had never liked purple until I saw you pair it with the lime green. Now that is my favorite color combination.

craftyrad said...

Love both the greens and the purples -- hard to choose a favorite!

Connie said...

I like red and teal, thanks for the chance!

AnneP said...

Love all greens - lime green is probably my favourite - would love to win this colour.

Colleen Kole said...

Deep purple irises, columbine, pansies and all the little wild flowers that are purple-those are the purple things I adore. Add a little lime green and everything just pops!

Grand prize- Your fabric seems to be my favorite .

Passed on to some friends!

Thanks again.

Kim said...

Purple and Green were my color choices for my bathroom..and it turned out lovely!
thanks for having this give away! What a wonderful way to celebrate the
holidays!

tisme said...

Well purple is my favorite color, and it goes perfect with greens, so I know I would be using it that way.

SewLindaAnn said...

Beyond the hill is gorgeous. Green is my fave color, I'm just really into nature and natural elements. Leading into purple is nice, sort of reminds me of a river and also eggplant since I'm kind of hungry:) I would love this pack to do lots of leaves.

Lisa said...

Thanks for the clarification! I love green's and purples. My daughter tells me that I keep making the same quilts over and over because I keep using purples, greens and yellows! But they are all different patterns so I say they aren't all the same!

annmarie said...

You have the best names for things. I love your purple & greens! It is an unlikely combo but it works for me! I think your grand prize should be more of the same - who wouldn't love to win some of your gorgeous fabrics!!!

Connie said...

I have been doing more and more raw edge applique and the greens and purples are beautiful! I agree with someone else's comment - a piece of your work for a giveaway would be awesome!

Carla G said...

This is a very unlikely combo of color but it works...I like greens and purples. Thanks for a chance to win! :)

Paulette said...

those colors remind me of Hawaii and have a depth of color that i would love to add my quilts.

City/Sandie said...

I guess m y post got lost in the mail! Darn Pony Express! Dont know when you posted that HILL art, but it is eye candy ... I don't run anymore but my feet were ready to go just looking at it.

Sue said...

I am a tie-dyer myself--this is the first year since '88 that I have not dyed a single thing--life ran me over, big time! I would love to have my name thrown into the hat to win a freebie from you. merry Christmas.
