I got a little distracted with Christmas and didn’t get around to drawing a name for the quilt layout question.
But…… drum roll please……
I numbered each entry and wrote down each number on a piece of paper and put them all in a bowl and had my husband pick one of the numbers. That way you can blame or thank him.
Ronna is the winner. Ronna said
I like 1 and 3 best. On number 1 I would like to see the two versions (cross and circle) alternate or be scrambled not all 3 cross to the left and circles to the right.
Please email me with your mailing address and I will have a box of goodies out to you before the years end.
Thanks for participating. It was fun to read your suggestions and comments. Sometimes I only have my husband to ask for an opinion and he usually just says “thats nice dear”……. what does that mean??? nice???
You gotta love em.
I will now stop procrastinating and go sew those blocks together. I will show you the results soon. Stay tuned.
But first, just a bit more chocolate from Mr. Snowman………

This was my original plan for the quilt blocks.
Notice my incomplete border using the half circles. By using the blocks for the border the quilt is rectangular.I played with blocks. Or maybe I should say I re-arranged the blocks??
I wasn’t sure about that so moved the blocks again to this layout. Notice I am now short about 8 blocks. Just ignore that part.
And last but not least this traditional layout, alternating the dark and light.
Don’t tune out yet, the best is yet to come…….So here is the deal, tell me which layout appeals to you the most.Some guidelines to help you decide, this quilt, when completed, will possibly get its picture taken and go on the cover of the new 6″ template (available sometime in January).
It needs to have
1. mass appeal (you like it a lot)
2. photograph well. (look good on the cover).
The Best Part!
And to tempt your big quilting heart I am offering a goodie bag to be filled with scraps (lots of usable, mostly batik), charm packs, layer cakes, my Sew Easy Tweezers and whatever else I decide to put in there.
If you like to quilt and fondle fabric you will want this box!
I will draw from the list of responses to see who wins. I think you might be distracted with Christmas activities so I have extended the voting time.
Tell your friends, tell your mother, tell your brother. But only vote once. (please!)
Small print – sorry but I will only be able to ship goodie box to the US. But you can still vote.
