St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop Party!!

My shop - Carter Creek Quilts - is participating in the Quilting Gallery's St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop Party!!  The Blog Hop Party starts shortly after midnight on March 17th and lasts until midnight, March 23rd.  There will be lots of give-aways on the participating blogs.
I will be giving away one of my patterns - Irish Winds.

This is the quilt I made from the pattern:

 








 
If you would like a chance to win this pattern, you need to tell about your favorite quilting technique in the Comments section below, but please not before the 17th.  Do you like to machine piece, hand applique, hand piece, use die cuts, or whatever your preference is, share it.

A winner will be chosen at random and notified on March 24th.  The winner's name will then be posted on this blog and that person will need to contact me within a day to provide me with their mailing address.  If I don't hear from the winner within a day, a subsequent name will be picked and that person notified.  Sorry, I do not ship internationally at this time.

Good luck to all of you and thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. The only hand sewing I do is cross-stitch so I'd say I'm a machine sewer. My new favorite way to make blocks though is paper piecing. I love it! Thanks for the chance.

  4. I joined a hand piecing quilt along and am really enjoying the process. I do a lot of quilts but mostly I do the easiest and fastest patterns. I am trying to make myself venture into the more time consuming and difficult patterns but I have not patience so it is hard to stay focused to do anything that takes a lot of time.

  45. Greetings from Canada. Love machine piecing, do the very occasional hand applique, do hand quilting, and since that takes way too long, don't have too many of my tops finished into quilts, as I also hesitate to machine quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.
