New Giveaway — Tula Pink and Alison Glass

Here’s my second giveaway to celebrate reaching 1000+ followers on Instagram.

There are TWO prizes to win.

Giveaway Prize A: Charm Packs and Notions

Alison Glass SoFine Glue Baste

Two wonderful charm packs–Alison Glass Sun Prints and Forest Frenzy.

I’ve also included  a large spool of SoFine™#50 white thread from Superior Threads–I use this weight for piecing and occasionally for quilting.

The other notion is a new find for me–a squeeze bottle of GlueBaste-It™.   I love the fine tip–it’s refillable!  And it’s a squeegee bottle that helps me control the amount of glue more easily.  I’ll be posting a tutorial on ways I use this product–such as when I apply bindings or need to do precision piecing.





Giveaway Prize B: Alison Glass Charm Pack and Tula Pink Fat Quarters

These lovelies need no introduction…Alison Glass Sun Prints and a fat quarter of 3 Tula Pink Eden Elephant prints.




Sorry–this one is only open to USA based entries. I’ll draw the winners randomly on Sunday November 27th at 12 noon Eastern.  First name drawn gets their choice of Prize A or B.  Second name drawn gets the other prize.

  1. Required: Follow me by completing any one of the following.
    • Follow me on Instagram.  I am @carolelylesshaw  [please be kind and stay around for awhile!]

    • Subscribe to my Blog–there’s a link in the right hand column to do that.
  2. Optional:  What is one quilt related goal you have in 2017?


My 2017 Quilt Goals:

I thought I would share my three BIGGEST quilt goals for 2017:

  1. Publish my 2nd pattern book:  Patriotic Modern Quilts. I’m making excellent progress and I’ll be posting more in early 2017. All of the patterns have been tested, sample quilts have been made and quilted.  Now I’m editing the instructions and working with my graphic designer.
  2. Publish a retrospective book about my art quilts–TITLE  is TBD….It will feature many of my art quilts stretching from the 1990’s to 2017.  I’ve decided on the categories, and started gathering the photos.
  3. Continue working on my 3rd pattern book:  Madly Modern Quilts: Fibonacci and More!  for publication in late 2017 or first quarter 2018.  I’ll be sending patterns out to my testers early next year.

    Great goals! I think I should write mine down too – make them more “do-able”!
    Thanks for being such a generous person!

    I follow you on IG and think by email. I participated as one of the team members for your MQG charity quilt. And if you should need testers for any mathematically interesting quilts for your book I’d love to h please!

    I follow by Bloglovin’. My goals for the upcoming year are to keep fabrics organized at all times, along with finishing all of my UFO’s. I believe that I have 6 of them, ranging from baby quilts to one queen sized quilt. Writing them down is an excellent way to stay on top of them! Thank you for sharing and this great give away opportunity.

    I’ve been an IG follower for awhile and plan to stay. 🙂 I get your email updates.

    Goals for 2017 include taking time to make what I want; not quilting for pay, not a gift, mine!, get sewing corner arranged where I can piece on winter nights when my husband is in early.

    I follow you on Instagram! Congrats on the milestone! You have great 2017 goals! I suppose I will continue a goal I’ve done for a couple years now – 17 quilts in 2017. I also like the motto “dream bigger” – so I’m brainstorming goals that would really grow my business. Thanks for the chance!

    One of My 2017 quilt goals will be to get my 2016 temperature finished!

    • Carole Lyles Shaw November 19, 2016 at 12:57 pm #

      Hi Heather–what’s a ‘temperature”? Is that an autocorrect edit (smile…..)

  13. Susan November 19, 2016 at 9:45 am #

    I’ve already been following you on IG and Bloglovin! Your Patriotic Modern Quilts book sounds very interesting! Actually one of my quilty goals in 2017 is to make a patriotic quilt, but I haven’t been happy with the more traditional patterns, so your book may just be my answer!

    I follow you on Instagram! I’m intrigued by your Fibonacci quilts. Congrats on 2000 followers.
