Giveaway Prize

purple-daisiesPurple Daisies is giving away a Ultimate Piec-lique kit. The kit includes three Piec-lique patterns (LeAnn's Pinwheel, New York Rising Sun, and Moon River), including detailed DVD instructional tutorials, a bundle of coordinating Art Gallery Solids, a set of glue fine tips, and a bottle of washable Elmer's School Glue to one lucky Pile O' Fabric reader.

Piec-lique is a very helpful technique engineered by Sharon Schamber which can make any curve piecing possible and other designs which may traditionally be foundation paper pieced.. We will be learning this technique during the Skill Builder BOM 2014.

    Oh, gosh, my projects for 2014……hmmm. Hopefully it won’t include my 2013 Christmas gifts that I have planned!!! I have purchased the pattern and all the fabric for Tula Pink’s Butterfly Quilt, and I hope to get it made. Not quilted, but put together! I have so many small and large projects that I want to start and finish. My stash grows faster than my finished, or even started, projects do!

    I would love to win. What a great bundle of gifts!

  • Sandy A in St. Louis says...

    Wow, I have too many WIPs to list! On the top though, is a quilt I have been in the process of making since 2005. It is mostly quilted (by hand) but I still need to finish quilting a few blocks and figure out how I want to quilt the borders. It was a BOM so I know when I started it. It got set aside for a while when I got frustrated with a block, then picked back up a few years later. Have been hand quilting on it for the past two years….it’s about time I get it done! :)

  • mell-meyer says...

    On August 21, 2014

  • Susan K says...

    My goal for 2014 is to get the 4 or 5 tops that I completed in 2013 quilted. I prefer the piecing to the quilting and things are piling up that aren’t finished. I also have a couple of quilts on my to-do list. Anything past that is a bonus!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Ali M says...

    Oh no! I haven’t thought that far ahead, my first desire is to finish up all my quilts in progress so I can move on to brand new projects without feeling like I’m too far behind.

    I am vowing to finish 4 quilts that are sandwiched and ready to finish. Then I am going back to doing art quilts. I have used Piec-lique techniques on art quilts before, and I have gotten really great results.

    My project for 2014 is a quilt for my brother & SIL. We discussed a couple ideas on Thanksgiving. It will be fun working together. My sewing goal is to improve my FMQ – that’s a long-standing one!

  • Robyn Kirk says...

    Dear Alyssa
    This is such a generous offer from you both. I am determined to make a modern pickledish quilt. That is, I hope I can update the blocks for a more modern look. This coming year year the most important thing is to keep learning and improving.
    Cheers from New Zealand
