Quilt Retro Launch Party – Day 10

Buy my book - please!
Welcome back to Day 10 and the final day of the Quilt Retro Launch Party! It's been a crazy, fun, sometimes exhausting but always interesting week! I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about me and my book. And most importantly, I hope you found inspiration to create something outside your comfort zone - whether it's to try applique, to use solids or to try something improvised. I truly believe that if we always do the same thing over and over, we'll never grow and get better at our craft.

So once all the contests are over (some are still open, check out the links below to find out which ones and enter there if you haven't already) and I've cleaned up the place after the party, I hope you like what you saw enough to order your own copy. You can go to Pickledish OR Amazon to order or certainly ask at your favorite brick and mortar store.

But before the party is over, there is one last contest you can enter for one last chance to win an autographed copy of Quilt Retro (and I have a bonus contest too!) Here's what you do: For one chance to win, leave a comment telling me your favorite quilt you saw over the last two weeks. If you are a follower, or join in the next 24 hours, you'll be entered twice (just mention in the comments if you are a follower).

There will be a bonus prize of one of the Fried Egg potholders to someone who enters, but I won't reveal the criteria that it takes to win the prize until after the contest closes Saturday (tomorrow) at 6:15 a.m. CST. (Mean aren't I?) But I will tell you it will help if you are a follower! I'll announce the winners on Saturday! Good luck!

If you've missed any of the party, you can catch up here:
Thursday 10/6: Jenifer Dick at 42 Quilts
Friday 10/7: Angela Walters of Quilting is My Therapy.
Monday 10/10: Jacquie Gering of Tallgrass Prairie Studios.
Tuesday 10/11: Deb Rowden of Deb Rowden’s Thrift Shop Quilts

  5. I think the olives quilt is high on everyone's list, as it is on mine.

    I've been following you in my Google reader, but now I'm here following you on the blog too.

  6. Hi Jenifer! It's so hard to pick a favorite - but I have to go with the Fork and Spoon quilt. It reminds me of our kitchen in Glenview, IL when I was a kid...before we remodeled to black marble formica countertops and harvest gold appliances! I'm an official follower

  7. I can't pick just one. I have 2 favourites. One is Spoon and Fork. The other is ... now I can't remember the name ... but it was the one with all the little squares that form lines going in various directions. LOVE it! Well, really, I'm lovin' them all.

  9. I am a follower and am loving the weekly block patterns - Modern Monday and Traditional Tuesday. Thanks so much for hosting the quilt-along blocks. All the patterns in your new book are lovely and very tempting. Linoleum floors is my favourite, and the fish bones project a close second.

  14. My favorite quilt is the first one I saw over at Quiltville. It's linoleum floors and I just love how the colors dance around on the pastel background.

  15. I just became a follower, I have become tired of the same old quilts and have been inspired to try new techniques.

  16. Linoleum floors is stunning. Thanks so much for telling us we can mix our beige neutral colors for the background. Love the mixed colors for the chains. This one would be great to make with friends, bring your own scraps and share and make a quilt.

    Congrats on your book!

  18. My favourite too is the Linoleum Floors quilt. I love the way the almost but not-quite-the-same neutrals give depth and interest to the quilt.

    Though the quilt with the cutlery comes close....
