I'm getting real busy at work, and stressed, so it's best this give-away gets posted now before I have to step back a bit.
"A strong design and bold fabrics in deep, rich colors give Joy Hoffman's contemporary Nine-Patch quilt a masculine look." The pattern pages are from the April 2003 American Patchwork & Quilting magazine, and the quilt finishes at 77.5" x 104.5"
There are template patterns included, but Joy suggests using Tri-Recs templates she developed with Darlene Zimmerman and the Tri-Mate tool she developed herself. I have used Tri-Recs on two or three quilts, and I can tell you they're worth the small investment. They are not included with this give-away, but are readily available at most quilt shops and can be purchased online.
I saw the quilt made up and it is really quite lovely. The kit includes 12.375 yards of fabric, and comes in a big zippered bag. Backing is not included.
To be entered in the give-away, just leave a comment and say you'd like to make this for your husband, boyfriend, father, grandfather, or that you'd just like to win it for the heck of it. That's a good enough answer at the LA Quilter household!
The drawing will be held on Thursday, April 1, 2010, at around 7:30 pm California time. (I'm always confused about whether it's daylight savings time or standard time, so I always just say California time.) If your comment won't link back to your blog, you must leave an email address for me to contact you if you're the winner. And if the freeways are a mess that night, I might be a bit late - but it will happen!
Good luck to everyone.
I'll include my stash report here so I won't have to push this post down the page tomorrow. Thank you for helping me get back in the black on my stash report - barely!
