Giveaway: Autumn Prairie Pattern

So I’m cleaning out some old-style packaging, and I’ve got a couple dozen of these patterns to give away. The pattern is new, I’ve just changed around my logo and cover design. If you want one, email me at the dandelion address in the sidebar. It’s free! Just do me a favor and send me a picture if you actually make it!

( 4:00 p.m. I still have a few left, but they’re going fast, so email me now!)

(8 p.m.-okay, 5 left; jump now or forever hold your peace!) All Gone! Thanks to those of you who emailed me!

  1. Hm….. What are the chances it would ever surface again after a cross-country move and a year of having all my earthly possessions in a storage unit?

  2. If you still have any left, I would love one. I have no access to a computer at the moment and can’t see your email address on my phone, or I would send you an email.

  3. I wanted to let you know I received the pattern and it’s adorable! I’ve already designed my first 3 quilts, so I won’t be making it directly, at least not for a while, but I’m mining it for ideas and tips on quiltmaking in general, which I’m just now starting without any local tutors. I’ve read About.com and various other how-to sites on quilting, but there’s so much that most how-to’s leave out, and of course there are differences of opinion on a lot of things. Do you really not need to wash your fabric before putting it together, for instance? Seems like I’ve read several people who said you should. Maybe it depends on the use the quilt will be put to, or the fabric type, or something like that?

    Anyway, just wanted to thank you for the cute pattern and all the quilting information included. I’ll post my progress on facebook as I make my own quilt, and you’ll be able to see the results.

    • Tatiana, unless you’re using vintage fabric, you absolutely do not need to wash your fabric. I have never, not even once, washed my fabric first, and have no idea how many quilts I’ve made. It’s got to be in the upper dozens. If you use 100% cotton, quality fabric, you’ll be fine. Now, if you’re mixing cheap $1 Voldemart fabric with high-end Kona cotton, you’ll have shrinkage issues- as in the Kona won’t, and the el-cheapo will shrivel up to nothing. But I would hope no one would mix a fine cotton with a super-cheap fabric.

      Email me if you hit any snags or need any help. I’m happy to share what I know.
