What's on the Gammill Friday and a GIVEAWAY

Today's WOTGF is this Sunbonnet Sue applique quilt.  Such a classic design.  Made by 'J' for a new baby!
 

Here is a close up of the quilting an allover design:
 


Quilting Design: Stars & Loops

I figure its been SO long since I have had a giveaway, so I have decided to have one! 
I will be giving away 5 patterns of Rosalie Quinlan's brand new pattern 'Mauritian Bloom Pattern Holder'!  Isn't it lovely?!  I will post anywhere in the world so don't be shy!


If you would like to go in the draw, just post a comment on this post!  I would love to know if  you get your own quilts done by a long arm quilter or you can just pop in and say hi!  Please only comment once.  No extra entries for blogging about it, becoming a follower, just plain and simple - a comment is enough :+)  I will draw the winner next WOTGF post!

I send all my large quilts out to a long arm quilter,have yet to have the time or patience to do my own yet maybe after this year when I finally finish my 2 years of study.
Thanks for the chance to win such a lovely pattern I've been eyeing this pattern of in your shop everyttime I visit :) Barb.

wow that sunbommet is gorgeous and as usual your quilting is perfect for it..no I don't send my quilts out to a long armer ..I just do them on my domestic machine(painfully at times I might add)..then there is oemn that are just too big and hang waiting for the day...Rosalie's pattern is gorgeous..cheers Vickie

Hi Sarah, I enjoy seeing the quilts you are working on...I have been making smaller quilts lately that I simply quilt myself..I do have some large tops sitting in the cupboard while I decide what to do with them..

Lovely work as always Sarah!

Sharon - Lilabelle Lane said...

I send some out to be quilted and then attempt to quilt the rest myself.

That's a sweet design for a baby quilt Sarah. I have had a few quilts done by long-arm but when you start out some don't warrant the cost. With more time I guess I would make more bigger items & need more longarm quilting done. I live in hope for those days... Tracee xx

I quilt small quilts by hand, table runners and some medium size ones by machine (mostly in the ditch and straight lines as I am not confident to do anything else!)
and larger ones I have professionally quilted. Always enjoy your blog!

Noela said...

I quilt my small quilts on my sewing machine and I also like to do hand quilting on some but I have had a John Watts quilter for a good while (not game to say how long) and have my first quilt on it at the moment. Only half done as I keep putting off finishing it. Hugs....

Karen said...

Such preety pattern, thanks for the chance!

Leanne V said...

HI Sarah - Love your blog and the pattern. I quilt all my own quilts and many others (I have my own longarm machine!!)

I love your quilting. I quilt all my own quilts on my Designer 1. Maybe not quite as professional but I enjoy the quilting process. I'd love my own long arm machine but there is no way it would fit in my house!

linny said...

I quilt my small quilts but send my large ones out. Really love all of Rosalie's patterns, thanks for the chance to win these.

Anthea said...

katherine macwin said...

i always admire the wonderful quilting you do

Leanne said...

I'm lucky i can quilt my quilts on the long arm at work, one of the many benefits of my job at the quilt shop. lol

Hope said...

It is a lovely pattern. :)

I have never had quilting done professionally. I (mostly) enjoy the process when I quilt at home, so haven't felt the need.
