I have had a BLAST collecting 12 days of giveaways.. let's get to Day 2!
My friends at Kaleidograph Pattern Design toys sent me two of thier new Kaleidograph kits.. WHAT FUN!
You might find this to be VERY addicting for designing Quilt pattens without a computer! Every pattern of the Kaleidograph is a quilt pattern in miniature and the billions of geometric designs that can be made are super fun to try!
No batteries, no plastic, totally creative... and for ALL ages. When was the last time you found a toy that speaks to everyone and is creative?
The Kaleidograph Pattern Design toy was on WIRED magazine’s Wish List, in Martha Stewart’s Holiday Gift guide, it's the Hipster toy for sure!
And I have a BUNCH of them to giveaway! THREE winners!... oh the possibilities!
And another winner will receive my stack of 3 mini charm packs!
Leave me a comment by 8pm my time Tues Dec 9 telling me

THE WINNERS ARE
3 Kaleidographs to
Laurie R who said - The first quilt I ever designed is almost finished. It's a selvage star. It's a combination of several different designs that I've seen. I will post as soon as I get it bound.
Deborah who said -I have made quilts mostly from patterns or pictures, but I always make the backings: I piece them, carrying on parts of the top's design elements, and lots of times I like the back just as much as the top!
and Kim who said - The one and only quilt I have ever designed was for my then 4 yr old nephew. A little background first. My friend and I had bought a bolt of batting from a store in a huge city where my family all lives. The bolt was ready to pick up so my brother in law and his then youngest son when out to pick it up for us before coming up to visit. When they walked into the store, all the Christmas fabrics where on display. My nephew then told his dad, he needed to make him a snowman blanket.
Well my brother in law told him he needs to talk with me. So as soon as my nephew saw me, the first things out of his mouth was "I want a Snowman blanket". This was in September. So I proceeded to look for cute patterns for snowmen and didn't find any that would be too hard/time consuming to make. I was not having much luck. I was looking at a colouring book that had cute snowman and decided to make my own. I blew up a colouring book picture with a light projector, onto brown parcel paper. Drew the picture on the paper, cut it out and then appliquéd onto some background fabric. I made the whole thing out of minkee, found cool buttons to act as the mistletoe berries and botton up frosty's belly. Turned out fantastic. My nephew is almost 9 and he still drags that blanket with him everywhere and sleeps with frosty all year round.
And the MINI Charms go to Mary who said - Mant years ago I made quilts for my mom and mother in law for Christmas. I traced all their kids & grandkids hands, appliqued those on a square and then embroidered each name next to the hand. I had never made a quilt before those. I tied them because it was easy to do. Both are stll in use after 35 years, many washings, and lots of cuddling.
Thank you for this opportunity to win some wonderful quilting goodies.
