Fun Friday Giveaway - Prickly Pear, by Cozy Quilt

Cozy Quilt Designs has introduced a new strip pattern called "Prickly Pear".  SewCalGal was lucky to attend the unveiling of this new design at a recent Strip Club Meeting at Cozy Quilt Shop.  I thought it was such a lovely design, I wanted to share it with you today.  And, of course, I was delighted when Daniela agreed to sponsor a Fun Friday Giveaway, by giving away a copy of this fun new pattern!



The Prickly Pear pattern, designed by Georgette Dell'Orco, has easy to follow instructions, with great visuals, that will help you make this beautiful design in a variety of sizes (Lap, Throw, Twin, Queen, or King).  It is also designed to work with 2-1/2" strips.


This spectacular design was shown in fabrics perfect for Christmas or Fall, but SewCalGal thinks this design would work well in just about any color palette!

Here is a video presentation of the unveiling of this new pattern:

SewCalGal predicts this will be a very popular quilt pattern.  In the recent Cozy Quilt Shop newsletter, Daniela announced a special that you might be interested in:

Thru 9/25 you can get this pattern for free, with a $35 web order at CozyQuilt.com.  Just put "Prickly Pear" in the special instructions, when you check out.  And, if your order is for a minimum of $35 you do not need to add this pattern to your order to receive it for free.  To clarify, the Prickly Pear pattern will automatically be shipped to you if your order is for $35 and includes "Prickly Pear" in the special instructions.

Just in case you are wondering what you might want to order from Cozy, here are a few items SewCalGal suggests you check out:
Folded Corner Clipper
Folded Corner Clipper is a new tool that helps to make half-square triangles, flying geese, snowball blocks, diamond in a square and cornered rectangles

Cutting Corners Ruler(TM)
Cutting Corners ruler is an amazing tool that will help you create beautiful blocks and settings.  Definitely check out the videos that are available for this ruler and you'll see why SewCalGal "loves" this tool.

And, Cozy has oodles of beautiful patterns, fabrics, tools and more, so it would be easy to find $35 worth of quilting supplies online and get a free copy of the new Prickly Pear pattern with your order.  Just remember to add "Prickly Pear" to the special instructions when you place your order.

What a delightful pattern!

Mommarock said...

Perhaps it is my lack of rulers and my lack of skills in that area that is holding me back from breaking out in the quilting world. I really havn't made a lot of quilts, and perhaps if I understood this area better, I would have lots of rulers, know how to use them correctly, and be a cutting and Quilting QUEEN!

Mommarock said...

I subscribed.. I hope that was the right button to push. There was no like button. Can you tell that I'm not the most computer savvy person in the world??
