Fun Friday Giveaway: Lunch Box Quilts

Angie Steveson, the founder of Lunch Box Quilts, creates fun quilt designs and machine embroidery designs that will certainly bring yummy delight to all!  And, I'm excited to be able to share some insights with you today about Lunch Box Quilts.  But bewarned - I think you'll be hungry after you read this post today.

Lunch Box Quilts' Classic Series offer traditional applique whether needle turn, fusible, blanket stitch, etc.  These beautiful quilt patterns contain all of the full size appliqué shapes along with the quilt assembly instructions.  And, many of the Classic Series designs include instructions for making a small wallhanging or table topper too!  So, you don't need a fancy embroidery machine to make many of the yummy Lunch Box Quilt designs.


But, Lunch Box Quilts is famous for Angie's beautiful machine embroidery applique' designs that make tasteful quilts, table toppers or wallhanings. 

Island Breeze is a fun tropical design that looks great in a variety of color palettes, but I'm hoping to make it with Batiks.  How can you not have a good time with this quilt?


Of course, there are many more embroidery applique' designs and embroidery design collections, including her famous Recipe Towel designs and cute Cutwork designs.

You'll eveen find some fun freebies on her site, including this adorable Ladybug wallhanging with machine embroidery design.


Angie also teaches a variety of workshops that you may want to take.  Just check her online Calendar for more info and/or you can chat with your local Quilt Store and/or Sewing Center to have them schedule a workshop in your area.    And, of course, let them know that Angie also has a Trunk Show that they can schedule to display in their store too! 

For those that will be at Quilt Market, I hope you'll pop by the booth for Lunch Box Quilts to meet Angie in person and see all of her beautiful designs too!  They'll be in booth 2330/2332 and they will also be introducing a new design collection called "Love Letters".  I can't wait to see this new collection, as it certainly reminds me of all the words of encouragement and love that my mother used to place in my Lunch Box!  Yes, we can never get enough love letters, or too many words of encouragement in a lifetime.  As such, I'm sure this is going to be a very popular machine embroidery design collection!



Ok, are you "hungry" for Lunch Box Quilts?

Angie has generously offered a yummy prize bundle for a lucky follower of SewCalGal that enjoys machine embroidery:

Machine Embroidery Prize Bundle:

A bundle of machine embroidery design collections for the yummy Picnic Time pattern and Chocolate Recipe Towel pattern

Seven mouth watering appliqués and an ant appliqué will make this quilt a favorite for picnics in the park. In addition to the appliqués a ninth design is included for use in creating the texture effect for the extra crispy drumstick.

My new-to-me sewing machine does embroidery so this would be a great set of designs to win. It will require me to learn how to load on my PC then to the stick and to use. Thanks for that chance. I follow sewcalgal. FB isn't working for me- have trouble report filed with msn for what it's worth - so alas cannot visit her FB page.
