Friday Give-Away – Two Tote Bag Patterns

Friday Give-Aways from the Quilting Gallery

Congratulations to last week’s winner #146 Erin. She won the Quilters Dream Cotton Batting donated by Seaside Quilting Supplies.

This week’s give-away is two gorgeous tote bag patterns, pictured below, donated by Barbara Weiland Talbert. One winner will be chosen to win both patterns. Stitch up a few for Christmas gifts.


Barbara is a nationally known author and award-winning free-lance writer/editor in the home sewing and quilting fields. Her sewing career began as a small child at the knee of her dear great grandmother and she’s been sewing and quilting and writing about it ever since!

Barbara’s most recent book, The Quilting Answer Book was published in April, 2009, by Storey Publishing. It was the featured selection of the month at Crafter’s Choice shortly after publication. Barbara’s next book, The Sewing Answer Book, is due for release in July, 2010.

Barbara has been designing and marketing quilt, tote bag, and garment patterns under the Jo-Lydia’s Attic label since 1999. And, when time allows, she posts sporadic entries to her blog.


To enter the give-away, please leave a comment below answering: Have you started your Christmas quilt-giving projects yet? The contest closes September 10, 2009. Winner will be randomly chosen.

UPDATE: Congratulations to #99 DiahRothman. She won the two tote bag patterns.

    Since I have recently joined the ranks of the un-employed,, guess I now have the time to make all the gifts that I have wanted to do in years past — yipee! Good results can be made from bad things happening, can’t they!
    ( and I have SO many things I want to make!! toys and kid quilts, and table pads, and table runners, and coasters, and hot pads, and lol,, the list just keeps going!)

  6. Shiree says:

    well (she says smugly) yes, I have started, I have made several gift items, but I must say that I have been encouraged by the number of wonderful swaps that I am currently participating in, have to be organised!

  9. Nancy says:

    Yes, I have started. I have made 5 wall hangings. They will be given as gifts and are Christmas decorations.

  10. Helen Recane says:

    I attended a 3 day retreat recently and finished 2 tops. One was a “Take 5” in golf fabric for a 60th BD last weekend. Second “Take 5” for me needs borders, but I did not get to the D9P for my DS. It will be a Christmas present. It is cut out and ready to sew. So, yes, I have started, but no presents finished yet.

  11. Teresa L says:

    I’m thinking about it and have gathered up patterns and ideas. No actual cutting and sewing yet. Hopefully later this month.

  12. Beverly says:

    Love the bags. I have all my Christmas fabric sorted out so I am ready and anxious to get started.

  13. Kathy Service says:

    Yes, I have started my Christmas sewing, as I love to do quilted items and need to start early. Please enter me in this wonderful contest, thanks so much, Kathy

    Hi, I have not started yet, because I am not used to it. I come from Holland, and there we know Sinterklaas (sort of Santa) at 5th December. At that day we celebrate his birthday. Children believe that he brings gifts for them if they are sweet. When they grew older family choose to celebrate Christmas with gifts, but there al also families who choose to give gifts at 5th December. They mostly make suprisepackages and poems.
    I have not started yet because I am still busy with my bag swap.
    But I would like to win something.
