Win Yourself Some Wonderfil Thread

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm giving away a sampler package of Wonderfil Thread's Invisifil. This is a fabulous thread for couching, top stitching, quilting and even piecing where a large number of seams will all come together. It is 100 weight and almost invisible. It is by far my favorite thread for stitch in the ditch as it hides in the ditch and should you happen to "swerve" a bit while stitching it is almost impossible to notice. I don't know about you, but I don't always sew straight and sometimes stitch in the ditch is quite difficult if the seams are not pressed properly. I will be making the draw for this thread on January 15, 2011. (Wow 2011 already, can you believe it?)

All you have to do to enter this draw is one or all of the following:
1. Sign up as a follower to this blog and leave a comment here that you have done so.
2. Visit my website: and leave a comment here about your favorite pattern.
3. If you are already a follower, tell me what kind of topics you would like to see in the future.
4. If you have a blog, mention this draw on your blog and let me know you have done so to receive two entries to the draw.
5. Submit a name for the quilt shown below. (I may or may not use your name for the pattern.)

Sadly, this contest is only open to Canada and the Continental United States. Later draws will be open to other areas as well.

Below is a picture of what is going to be my new pattern. It will be available for sale starting next week. The trouble is that I don't have a name for it yet. It is entirely made of scraps (except the binding.) The center is strip pieced and the borders are made triangle scraps. I used all the same white, but it would look lovely with all different whites as well.

Question of the Day: What would you call this quilt?


  1. Love the quilt, Cathy. Scrap quilts are my favourites.

  2. "Color Mirage" popped into my head but I cannot explain why. Beautiful quilt.

  3. I'm already a follower and would like info on smaller quilty projects.

  4. I am now a follower of your blog. Would love more info on machine quilting on domestic machine.

  5. I am a follower, and when I look at that quilt "Peek a boo" comes to mind.

  6. How about "Stripping Along" since it's constructed with strips of fabric. I'll let you know if I think of any others.

  7. I am a follower and I love tutorials! thanks for the lovely giveaway.

  8. My favorite pattern is the darling dogs! Looks just like one of my dogs.

  9. I would name the quilt Kalidoscope Dream

  10. I would call the quilt 'Hugs and Scrappy Kisses' because I see lots of xs and os layered together.

  11. Those diamonds seem to "sparkle" to how about
    Sparkling Diamonds.

    What a terrific prize.....some lucky winner will find out what fabulous thread this is
