A Bag, A Cat, and A Giveaway!!!!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the weekend!! I have been busy again. Yesterday in between working on customer quilts, I made this quick and easy bag.



I love it and am already using it. I made it from this magazine.


This is the pattern.


But instead of using dish towels, I used some stash fabric!! The funky multi-colored fabric is from Ikea. I bought it last year, I paired it with this Kona Fuschia fabric (my fave!!). So I had to modify the directions somewhat. I think the results are terrific! I used 2 funky buttons from
Prints Charming...love them!!

Now for my naughty kitty Rolo. The other night I was working on completing my BOM that I taught at my local quilt shop, when Rolo decided to help. Here he is laying in various positions on my instructions and next to my machine.




Here he is helping piece a block. Now imagine a 22 pound cat placing his paws on your block as you are feeding the fabric through the sewing machine and then nipping at YOUR fingers. I think he wanted to do it all by himself and I was getting in the way. I love this cat, but he was really in my way. But I did complete the blocks!




Now onto my giveaway.... I have decided to do another mystery by mail through Glad Creations Quilt Block as a treat to myself for my birthday. I did one a few years ago through them and love the quilt! That one was also a birthday present to me.

So anyway, here is what they do, they send you swatches of fabric in 3 different color ways and you choose the one that you like. This time I couldn't resist, I saw one that I just had to do. They will send me all my fabric and the 1st clue, which is usually the cutting instructions. Then 3 weeks later you get the next clue. Do that then 3 weeks later...well you get the picture! I think there are either 5 or 6 clues until you are done. At the end you have a beautiful quilt! If you are interested go to their website and sign up...it is fun!


Anyway, here are the 3 sets of fabric swatches I had to choose from. All you have to do is guess the one that I chose. Please guess by number...the top being #1, the middle being # 2, and the bottom being #3.


So here is how the giveaway will work:

* Guess the color way I chose. Don't worry if you don't guess it correctly you will still have one entry in the giveaway. If you guess it correctly you will get 2 entries in the giveaway.

* Blog about my giveaway on your blog with a link back to this post and you will receive an additional entry (whether or not your guess is correct)!

* If you don't have a blog, you may still enter, but you need to provide me with a way to contact you. Preferably by e-mail.

Here is the prize.......Drum roll please.....I will quilt for FREE any quilt of yours up to a twin size. I will quilt it with an overall or edge to edge design. I will even pay for the shipping back to you and I will provide the batting! The only thing you will need to do is get it to me...no problem!! For those of you who don't know, I am a Professional Long Arm Quilter in business for 8 years. You can check out my work here on my website...www.cvquiltworks.com.

The giveaway will be open until my birthday (June 23). I will draw the lucky winner on June 24!

So good luck to all!!!

Have a great weekend and a Happy Father's Day to all the men in our lives!!

Jackie

Christine said...

What is it with plump ginger and white cats and quilts! Go Rolo! I had a good laugh at your pictures. Rolo is so like Oliver.
Your giveaway is fantastic and so generous. I really like the vintage fabrics but I'm guessing you've choose #2 (or 3!). Okay, my guess is #3.
By the way, your bag is really cool. Happy stitching.

kamewh said...

Nancy said...

I guess colorway #1. Would love to have a quilt done by you. I am making all of my grandchildren quilts for this Christmas. That's 5 to do before December. I have 2 done, but sure could use some help on one of the other ones....
Will post on my blog later today and send you a link.

Our Prim Nest said...

Thats a great bag you made, love it. I would also love to be entered in your drawing. Thanks so much and have a great day!. Kim

amy said...

Such a cute bag, Jackie! I have that fabric AND those buttons. Very, very fun! I'm going to guess that you chose colorway #1. I think your helper needs and deserves a snack for all of that helping!

G'G'ma said...

Hi. I've been strolling along this afternoon and just discovered your blog.

Love the bag. Saw the pattern in the magazine and had been thinking about making a bag and not using the towels.

I'll post about your giveaway today.

Hmmm, think you chose #2. Maybe!?

Annie said...

Love the bag, and looking at the colours of that, made me guess #1 for your choice. Sounds a great idea - mystery quilt.

AnnieB said...

lovely bag!

guess is number 1

let me know if you are happy to do international posting (would quite understand if not!) and I will blog you if so (as you know I am in UK)

BrineS said...

Silly cat...helping with the sewing...is he really guiding the material? If so, that's pretty cool! :)

I think you chose #1....very fun and cheery!

dbstout[at]juno[dot]com

julieQ said...

I think number 2 is the winner! What a marvelous give-away...thank you for doing this. Incredibly generous!

Lissa Jane said...

My cat is also the quilt inspector.. couldn't work out what was happening whilst chain piecing the other day, he was pulling the fabric under the table! and I have also learn he is a machine 'tester' he sometimes lays on the pedal if I am pressing fabric!

I am picking no. 1.. the bag is fabbo too! I love it!

Viv said...

What a great giveaway! I think you chose #1 vivsews0@yahoo.com

John said...

wow -- now this is an awesome giveaway. a prize i certainly can use. my first guess was #1 ... but after carefully looking through some of your older posts, my final answer is #2. i hope i win, i hope i win, i hope i win ... : )

Linda said...

Love the bag, and oh my those puss photo's!!! No idea which colour you chose, but if it were me it would be #3, so that's my guess. I'll post about it now.

MouseChirpy said...

Jackie, you sure have been busy making some very beautiful quilts and a cute handbag too.
Rolo is a little sweetie trying to help his mom sew. Please give the little furby a hug and a kiss from me.
When I think of you, I think of bright, vibrant, and colorful fabrics so I will choose #2.
Take care.
Aloha!

Fiesta said...

colorway 1. where did you buy the kona fuschia? I have never seen that color before. Only teal.

Teresa said...

Wow...what a fantastic contest. I guess #2!

Louise SS said...

What a terrific giveaway!!! Please enter me. I guess color #1.
The bag you made is darling. My email is: louise.sjodin.short@telia.com

Anne Heidi said...

Oh LOVE the bag!! it just screams SUMMER! You are so lucky to have Rolo helping you out with the sewing- those pictures are too cute. I think you chose #1- it will be fun to see your progress of this quilt- sounds like fun!

Linda T said...

What a great giveaway! I haven't done that many quilts, but the ones I have done I've quilted myself. I would love to win this prize! Count me in.

I think you would choose #1 - that's the one I would pick.

ltenhage@gmail.com

Cheryl said...

That Rolo!! I think my guess is #1. Love your bag and what a great giveaway. Hey, I finally posted my PIF!!

Mar said...

I'm voting for #1 hoping you'll go for the retro look. My Mother's birthday was the 23rd of June, Maybe she will bring me luck. Happy Birthday a little early!

Suzanne said...

Thanks for the chance of a give away. I think you would choose colour number 2.
I think that your cat has other plans for you that dont include sewing.
All the best.

Darlene said...

I've just discovered your blog - I need to read your archives and such!

Wonderful giveaway! I love those mystery by mail projects from Glad Creations and have gotten two from them in the past.

I'm going to pick #1.

Sweet P said...

I think you'll choose #1.

I love your tote bag. Your cat is a great helper.

I'm blogging about your contest right now. Post will be up soon.

K.C. said...

I am not a quilter. Just jumping over here and checking out your blog. I was amazed simply by you saying the bag in the first picture was easy. To me it is wonderful and I am completely impressed by it. I so wish I had the talent for it. The colors.. everything down to the button. Great, great blog.. Kayce

Claudia said...

I too have a cat but he doesn't like to "help". He just sleeps over any fabric I have around. But they sure are cute.
I loved the bag. It's a shame I can't find the magazine here in my country.
As for the giveaway, I'll bet on number 3. At least, it would be the ones I would choose.
And I post your giveaway in my blog too. I hope you have to time to check it out.

Karen said...

Just think how happy the lucky winner will be! Looks to me like #1 would be your favorite. Rolo is a good boy. Your purse is so great....wish I would settle down and make a purse or tote.

mamabug1085 said...

I can't think of any giveaway better than this. When you have so many projects waiting to be quilted to have a chance of making that pile one less ::))) YES! I will be choosing #2 for your challange ........and anyone who quilts with a cat not far away must be an okay girl. My quilting table has a corner spot looking out the window made just for the cats (hairy like the cats too!!)
Also, LOVE the bag!! Kathie

Shirleyquilts said...

Hi Jackie,I think that you chose colorway #1.Hope I win.Isn't Rolo too helpful?  :-)  Midnight likes to help me sew as well.  Fred just wants to be petted (constantly).

cathymcmann@comcast.net said...

What a generous prize! I have admired your work. That purse is great too!

My guess is colorway #2.

Michelle said...

A 20 pound cat! I'll have to tell my kids that our 15 pound cat is not as big as they think. I think you chose #1. Well, okay, maybe that's what I would have chosen. Anyway - that's still my guess.

Lisa D. said...

Wow, what an amazingly generous giveaway! I am tempted by that mystery myself. I know I would choose #3 - omg, those are pretty! But looking at some of your blog posts, I'm thinking you chose #1.

Sandra said...

Love the tote, and especially love your take on the tote - I need to get to Ikea to look at their fabric! Love your Quilt Inspector too - 22 pounds of Rolo deliciousness, LOL. My marmie is "only" 17 pounds and he's definitely a helper in the sewing room too - he likes laying on top of patterns or rulers - he thinks he's a paperweight! ;) What an incredibly generous giveaway - it's brilliant!! I guess swatch set #3, and -- good luck to everyone who enters!!

Judith said...

Love the bag very much. Also a great give away will mention it on my blog right away.
I think you have choosen 1, but well 3 could also be it. But my first feeling was 1.

erica e said...

wow! this is a very nice giveaway! i want to win!

thanks for visiting my blog!

um, i'm going to guess #1. that's what i would pick. :)

cute kitty. :)

Karol-Ann said...

jibgpsjFollowed Linda's link here. What a grogeous cat and a very yummy bag. I am in awe of your giveaway - amazing, I shall hold all my thumbs LOL.
I would pick number 2, but I have no idea what you would do. Sounds like a fun project and a wonderful birthday present though - hope you enjoy doing it!

TaraB said...

I love cats!! They always surprise you with their crazy personalities. Love your blog.

I would guess #1.

I will add this to my blog. What a great giveaway!

nettie said...

#1

inge said...

I choose number 2! I love the pics of the cat!

mamaspark said...

I really love your quilt inspector, might need to get one for the blog (I have 5 at home!) I am guessing #1. Please put me in the drawing.

floribunda said...

I wanted to be different, but I have to choose #1...

great cat -- mine flops around on the table while I'm sewing but hasn't really tried to help yet. He does occasionally walk on the computer keyboard when I'm working though -- usually when I'm cursing at a technical problem. Maybe it's his way of telling me to chill out!

Wendy said...

Cats can be so cute and fun but not when you are trying to do some sewing...that's still so cute.
My guess is #1.

Thimbleanna said...

I LOVE that new bag. I saw that fabric on my first ever trip to IKEA a few weeks ago -- now I'm thinking I need to go back and get some -- it's SO cute!

Oh, and I'm going with fabric #1!

Chookyblue...... said...

I pick number 1.........

Anonymous said...

jjkjos@yahoo.com
I guess colorway #2, they would all make great quilts. You share my birthday, so happy birthday soon. My cat likes to help too. He stopped helping for a while after he lost a whisker in the moving belt of a commercial power machine. Judy

amandajean said...

I am guessing that you chose fabric group #1.

and happy birthday a bit early!

Anonymous said...

#2? I've seen a few of those towel purses....yours is adorable! Mary Flynn

Erzebat said...

hiya,
Love the bag! I have the same issue and I will be making one too! I have to scour the dollar store for some cut arse towels to play with. judging by the cuteness of the purse, you will chose number one color way. I use to have a couple of quilters myself. One passed and the other didnt return home one night. I still have my 70lb border collie/rottie/malamute tester!
(mauh) Liz

Vickie E said...

Your bag is great. I like how you adapted the pattern.
My guess of your choice fabric is #2. I hope to blog your giveaway tonight. I'm going to check out their site if I have time.
Also, I have a megaquilter...which I used..until we moved and my husband broke a bolt taking it apart and has not been able to find a suitable replacement. Not that I have time to use it...but I'd like to again some day! In the mean time... quilt tops sit...maybe I'll be the lucky one to win woohoo...

Ms. Jan said...

Happy Birthday!

I got the magazine and just wasn't that thrilled with the bag until I saw yours. WOW! Great choice of fabrics!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Becky said...

Happy Birthday! My guess is colorway # 2. I don't know your fabric taste, but I sure like #2 :) Thanks for a fun giveaway. Love the pictures of your cat.

Infinity Quilter said...

I'm guessing you chose colorway #2.

Michelle said...

Great giveaway - I guess #2

Stephanie D. said...

I'm here courtesy of Lettie at Polkadot Pineapple!

Just a quick look at the photos on one page of your blog, and I have to guess #1, because those seem to be the brightest colors.

I blogged about you over at myh place, Scraps!

Thanks!

Dayna said...

I'd have to say....hmmmmmm group #1....just seems most like you. Now I would have picked number????????

bingo~bonnie said...

ok, I'm new to your blog thanks to SweetP... and so today I had to do some "research/archive reading" and based on what I saw... your M.E. quilt and Mambo quilt - I'm guessing you went with color option #1. :)

I will blog about it tonight on my blog. What a great prize you are giving away! and my 1st daugher's brithday is also June 23rd. She will be 4 years old.

So glad to have found your blog - so neat to read that you and your quilt friends got to be "extras" in a movie too!!!

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

auntann11 said...

Wow - very generous of you. I am heading back to read some more of your blog and to look at your photos.

I would love to see your new bag in person. Will have to dig out the mag and check that one out.

Did it take you long to choose between #1 and #2?

la la la la......
Still thinking......
#1 is my first thought, so #1 it is.

K.C. said...

Came back into your blog and saw your cat again and was thinking about the difference between your cat and my dog. And about my cat that I used to have and my dog now. My dog would have just torn up any project that I was working on, my cat, however, would have not torn it up, but gently glided over it all.

He would have definitely demanded to be in the middle of it, but not torn it all up. Wow, do I miss him... Kayce

Bella said...

I'm guessing Swatch #1...and Rolo is awesome....thanks for the chance...terrific prizey.

Jessica said...

My guess is number 1. I'm off to blog about it now! :) ~Jessica

This is probably my best chance to get something quilted. I have always dreamed that I could quilt but I'm afraid to even try. My guess would be 2.

~D Spack~ said...

Wow, thank you for doing this great giveaway! Yes, I'm ready for a free quilting, I have tops, hope to win.

ladydi said...

Our cat does the same thing! He pushes my hand out of the way so he can help even more. I think you chose #3 - pastels are such fun in the summer. What a great giveaway - thanks to Tine for the intro.

eileen said...

Jackie, the bag turned out absolutely gorgeous. How clever to use fabric instead of towels.

Ok. I'm playing. :) I am going to guess the top row.. number one.. the colorful funky stuff.

Rolo is a total hoot.

Jackie, what a great giveaway! I pick number 2 because I like deep, rich colors. I blogged about your giveaway and posted a picture of the top I want to be quilted when I win. :o)

Anonymous said...

I think you chose #3. I'd love to win that prize. I've never had the opportunity to get anything professionally quilted due to finances, so that would be a dream-come-true for me! The bag you made is wonderful…..love the colors you chose.

Anonymous said...

I would like to enter your drawing in honor of your birthday! I don't have a blog and I choose colorway #1.

Happy Birthday!

Carol Candlish

mymotherinlawisatroll said...

i'm guessing number 3 because they are bright, and your quilts are bright...
darling bag!!!

ozjane said...

Rolo is really blessing your work. They are wonderful quilt inspectors and workers. Miss Moggie sends her greetings and Meows to keep up the good work. Tell Mummy that a cuddle here and there helps me to move...so it might work with you.

I would love to enter and would choose 3 if I did..I can do that fun bit, but I will spare you the problem of posting to Australia and just do a fake entry.

Lynnea said...

I am going to guess #3...no reason!!
I also blogged about this giveaway!!:-)

Kim said...

Ummm, I think you picked number 2.

I also loved your bag. You made it sound easy to make but it looks like a real time consumer. You must be a speedy seamstress.

Primitive Seasons said...

I think you picked 2. What a darling cat! Everybody needs a little help now and again!

JUSTINE said...

Regina said...

Love the cat help!!

My guess is #1

Fabric Mom sent me to you, by the way.

Cory said...

I think you chose #2. Thank you for this contest, I enjoyed reading your blog. Take care, Cory

Doris said...

I have a cat that quilts too...I'm usually too mad at her to grab great photos of it like you did though!

It looks like he's saying "really, mom, why do you have to make this so difficult?"

I would pick #1 or #2 myself, but I think you went with #1.

Rebecca said...

Wow, what a generous giveaway!! I would love for you to quilt a lap quilt I'm making for myself!

I pick the colour way #1. I've also put the link on my blog.

vanos said...

I think that you will choose number 1. I love your little helper. I have one too.

Shari said...

I guess that you will use #3. I love it such nice colors.

Betty J in OKC said...

My fav is row #3. My 6 cats "help" me when I'm cutting and piecing my quilts too. Just not at the same time. LOL!
O2bquiltn2 at Yahoo dot com

Theresa said...

I am guessing #2. Love to see that you have a great helper when you are sewing. I have a large grey cat that loves to help. You can contact me at utsc@telus.net as my blog is not up yet.

Rhondi said...

Hi

Rhondi

Melanie said...

This is THE most practical give away I have ever heard of and so generous of you. I think you chose 3. This isn't based on anything other than I would chose that option. :-) Off to look at your business site now. Quilting is the worst part of creating for me as I'm not very good at all.

Tonya said...

Oh, I am getting ready to do my very first quilt! How lovely would it be to have someone who does such beautiful work quilt it!

Holly said...

Wow, what a fantastic giveaway.

I don't know you (yet!) so I'm gonna go with the majority of the votes and say #1. But truthfully, I just adore #3. So dreamy looking. :)

This is a very generous prize, thank you.

Cheryl said...

I am going to guess #3, it looks summer-y, kinda like sherbet :D
I love your purse! I think I need that magazine.
Great prize! Happy Birthday :D

Miss Jean sent me here and I have to tell you that your purse is just fabulous. Your cat was probably feeling like he need mommy time...what a cutie!

Ok, I say the top row of fabrics. Hard to choose, but I think they are great.

Thanks for the wonderful giveaway. That is so generous. Add my name in, pretty please. :)

This is my first time to your blog- I love seeing all your quilty photos...can I enter your giveaway? Im guessing number 2.

opalin said...

This is a wonderful cat you have! Just helpful and by your side everytime. The first time on your blog and what do I see? A giveaway. I guess, you choose number 1.
Wonderful bag you have, very nice.

KathySWFL said...

Rolo is too cute! Our Eddie does the same thing...cats what would we do without them.

My guess is # 1

And BTW I will put this on my blog and we have the same birthday!

Deb C. said...

Oh I'm guessing you would go with #1 (is that Katie Jump Rope fabric in there?).
Your giveway is the best! You would soooo make my day if I win. I have a pile of tops that need quilting. I like piecing and that is it. I just have that itch to get onto the next project and the finishing part takes so dang long!!! Oh, I sure hope I win.

Marianne said...

Wowee! I am going to guess number 2. This was hard as they are all so nice. Good luck to all!

anne bebbington said...

I'd guess you'd go with #2 - no idea why - as I said a pure guess

I will guess colorway number 3. Those batiks look luscious! What a generous prize! neat2meet at yahoo dot com

WOW! I think I'm #150! Love your bag and picked up supplies to make the same bag just today, my you have good taste;) I think you picked #2 (maybe that's cuz that's the one I would choose)...And your cat cracks me up. He looks like he's the paws on type...

Leslie said...

my guess is colors #1. I have several quilt tops that need quilting, that i just am not brave enough for.

Tracy said...

Your cat is gorgeous and looks like a great helper. This is a very generous offer you have made.
I think you chose number 1 fabrics.

everythingquilts said...

What a wonderful thing for you to do. I would think that you chose #1. I loved reading your blog. This was the first time I have, I stumbled upon it. I enjoy reading other quilters blogs. You do beautiful work. I loved the pics.

Caitty said...

Love Rolo! Mine is Rusty and he is just as helpful. My vote is for number 1. That is the one I would pick. I mentioned you on my brand new blog, www.caitty1.blogspot.com

Haven't figured out how to make an HTML link, but I will. Thanks for the incentive to finally set up my blog.

I have a cat who likes to pester me while I am at my sewing machine too! Her name is Annie. I am really excited about this giveaway! My guess would be #2.

Ginger Patches said...

Bronwyn said...

Thanks for being so generous with your time and effort (and money). After looking through your other quilts, you seem to like vibrant, exciting colours, so No. 1 or 2 could be picked, but maybe you have surprised yourself and chosen No. 3, because maybe you don't have these softer colours in your stash. Again thanks and I'll put you on my blog. Good luck to everyone!

Annemariesquilt said...

I have posted about your giveaway on my blogg today..
I will realy like to wish you a happy birthday tomorrow and I hope you will have a wonderful day with lots of fun. In Norway we are celebraiting midsummer on the 23 of june and lots of bonfire is lit at the seaside and everyone is barbequing and have a lot of fun.
Sadly the weather is not looking to good at the moment.
Take care and HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACKIE!!!!!!!!!!!

Quiltersal said...

I think you chose colorway #2 - that would be my choice as well! Love, love, LOVE batiks! Pick me, please!!!

Anonymous said...

I'll pick # 3. I'm doing the Glad Creations mystery as well and chose the batiks this time. I visited their shop when I went to MN last year and loved seeing all their quilts in person!

My birthday was the day you posted this June 14th. Sure would be cool to win this giveaway!!!

It was nice to be directed to your blog today! What great pictures you have. That purse is absolutely adorable, and I will run out and by the mag. I've managed to view the gallery at your website, too, and love the awesome quilting.

Anyhow, I'm glad to have made it here on the last day of a giveaway. hahaha Based on your love of brighter Kaffe fabrics, I believe you chose colorway #1.

I think you will select color way #1. I love that Rolo likes to help you sew. He is a handsome boy! I added a blurb about your giveaway on my blog - shameless, I admit it. But, I like your blog and will visit again very soon, regardless of giveaways.
