A NEW PATTERN [Let's Celebrate!]

I feel like I haven't had any finished projects to show lately because I've been trying to keep a few things under wraps...until now!  I've been working on 3 new patterns and the first one is ready to start giving away [but of course if you want to buy one then you can just click here.]

I'd like to introduce you to...
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe
[a Layer Cake pattern]


This pattern is perfect for beginners.  It would be so cute on a child's bed or even hung in a playroom. 


I'm dying to make it up in every color scheme...boy colors, brights, and vintage too.  Can't you just see it?
 

But, I really love this pattern because it can be made with or without the numbers, making it very versatile. 
It's scrappy, fast and fun and I hope you like it!

It might even be cute made-up in this Bliss Layer Cake...


which I want to give away [to one of you!]

My new friend, JoAnne, over at the online fabric store, Lanie Jane has donated this [much coveted] BLISS Layer Cake for one of you, my awesome friends!

She also donated some of these cute little "gem packs".
These gems measure 11" x 18" and are so dang cute.

There are 3 different themed gem packs. 
Red, Black and White:
Polka Dots:
and little girl:
Each pack has 12 gems in it, making 1 1/2 yards worth of fabric in each one!
Since there are 3 gem packs I think I need to pick 3 more winners! 

Here's the run down on this fabulous giveaway:
1st prize: Bliss Layer Cake
2nd, 3rd & 4th prizes: Gem Packs
And, of course, every winner will receive their own copy of
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe 

There are a couple of ways to enter. 
Leave a separate comment for each entry.

1.) Just leave me a comment telling me how you would make up
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe if you could
[like whom it would be for, where it would be displayed, what colors, etc.]

2.) Be a follower of this blog.  Just leave a commnet saying "follower!"

3.) Go give JoAnne at Lanie Jane some love for donating these wonderful fabric prizes.  Place an order or become a follower.  Come back and tell me what you did.

4.) Spead the word - blog about this giveaway on your blog or website and leave me a link to that post.

I'll pick the winner Monday morning!
Good luck!

Amber, it's gorgeous! Congratulations on another fabulous design.

I'd love to be entered into your generous giveaway. I'm wanting to try a brightly colored quilt so I'd love to do this pattern in bright fabrics.

I did go to Lanie Janes blog and took a look around. However her comments are closed at this time. She has a lovely online shop.

Crazy, I know, but numbers are always green to me, so I would make this quilt in greens! Love the pattern!

Laurie said...

Oh Amber! This is so nice!! I think it would be great to make this quilt with a kid's line from Sandy Klop! Her little people are so fantastic - it would make this quilt sing!! Great, great job! Congratulations :)

My daughter said just how much she loved red and polka dots so maybe that lovely set would be my choice. She has already dropped a hude hint about a new quilt.

Darliing and fun pattern! I definitely see it in Bliss. My sewing room/loft is being accented by these colors so I'd find a wall for it in there.

Cassie said...

I AM A FOLLOWER! And love fabric! Any you of course! ;)

Queen of the Unfinished Project said...

I think my nephew is soon to be due for a new quilt, so I would probably use boy colors to make this pattern... Blues, greens, maybe a bit of brown... Of course, they just redid his room, so I would have to go check out the new color scheme before I actually started working on it. I wouldn't want it to clash! Very cute pattern!

Cassie said...

I could see this quilt in my playroom, made in the perfect playroom color combination that I haven't yet decided upon, hung playfully on the wall with some fabulous way to hang.

Details to be decided but it would be wonderful!

Queen of the Unfinished Project said...

Also, I am a new follower. I've been reading. Somehow I just always before missed the part where I needed to click the little button up there.

Stitched With Prayer said...

I LOVE this pattern and as soon as I saw it knew I would make it for my 10 year old grand-daughter. Since it is for a girl and her favorite colors are pink and red, I would have to try to get some Bliss to make it with! (Bliss seems to be elusive around here...) Wonderful pattern Amber and it is 'heart healthy' too!!! *wink*

Stitched With Prayer said...

Amber, I tried to get to Lanie Jane's blog but the only place I can get to other than her store is a July 21st entry that says "Grand Re-Opening" and it is closed to comments. So from here, I'll just have to say to JoAnne and Lanie Jane, thank you so much for donating the wonderful fabrics for this giveaway. I would also LOVE to find your blog because it looks like a delightful wonderland that I would like to explore! Is there another link I can use to find it? OH, and thanks to YOU Amber, for such a great giveaway! Hugs...

FML Crochet said...

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe quilt pattern would be a great quilt for my nephew using a Pure fat quarter stack and all the numbers in a dark brown print from the line. It would look perfect on his bed.

Holly Sparks said...

Oh amber, SO darling,
how are you so creative!?
I agree, this pattern would be darling on a little kids' bed, and i would probably do just that with it (when the time comes of course...)

Also, can I say, I've been in love with the bliss line since I knew it was coming out... Just bought some bliss fabric for a little bag yesterday. :)

Carrie said...

I would like the pattern just to get motivated to quilt again! I'd love to do it in boy colors for my friend's new baby, but the girl bundle is adorable too!

Marcia said...

Thank you for this giveaway. This would be cute for any of my grandnieces - I thinking a small bed quilt - perhaps purples with touches of light pink, aqua - maybe will let the older grandnieces help pick colors for their room. And, buy a book that has the rhyme in it for reading. Of course, if win, then will use the fabrics I win to make the quilt. mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

My granddaughter is turning 2 this month and is getting ready for a "big girl bed". This would be perfect for her. She loves blue (and her mommy loves pink) so I would combine shades of blue and pink for her.

This pattern looks like it would be a good scrapbuster. So maybe, I could use bits and pieces of leftovers. I'd like to do it brights with white.
