Fun Friday Giveaway - The Quilt Show

Quilt show


Welcome to another Fun Friday.  


Today I want to share with you some of the reasons I enjoy my subscription to The Quilt Show.  I also want to share that they were kind enough for me to share photos with you in this post today.

Here are a few insights on The Quilt Show (TQS):

The Quilt Show is a virtual based magazine plus more.  They share insights on a blog, that is available to everyone (even if you don't subscribe to TQS).  Like a magazine, they have a video show that shares insights on various quilters, tips and more. They also have online courses, free patterns and more.  And, like a magazine, when you subscribe you'll always be able to access shows that were released during your subscription. You can watch them at your liesure when ever you want and as many times as you want.

Here are a few more things about TQS that you may not be aware of:

Sarah Vedeler is the quilt design and machine embroidery designs for her beautiful Sedona Star quilt, through a current block of the month program available for free to the Quilt Show members

I'm definitely looking forward to an upcoming video episode, to be released  November 5th "Episode 1110 – Come to the "Strip Club"... Rated G! (Daniela Stout)"


There are so many wonderful episodes on the Quilt Show that it is impossible to pick my favorites, but I'd definitely encourage everyone to watch:

Episode 901 – State-of-the-Art Quilting: Tradition Meets Innovation (Susan Brubaker Knapp)



Episode 611 – Applique the Piece O' Cake Way (Becky Goldsmith)

The TQS Blog is free to everyone and shares great tips and inspiration.  One of my recent favorites was a spectacular Star of Valor quilt made by Sherry Reynolds.



Isn't this QOV quilt spectacular?  I love it and love it even more knowing it is a QOV quilt.  Truly an inspirational quilt and another great example of why I love The Quilt Show.



Did I Mention A Giveaway?
When I renewed my subscription to The Quilt Show I was given a six month gift certificate to give to a friend.  I decided the best way to give it away is by using it as a prize on a Fun Friday Giveaway.

This giveaway is open to public followers that live any place in the world.  One winner will be randomly selected and announced next Friday.  They will be given a code that they can redeem for a free six month membership to The Quilt Show (or add six months to their existing membership).





I'm also delighted to announce the winners of the Fun Friday Giveaway, from last week, sponsored by Island Batik and Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio.    Congratulations to:

I love The Quilt Show. I learn so much there. Certainly count me in for this.
One of my favorite episodes was Episode 1011 – Stupendous Stitching with Carol Ann Waugh. It inspired me to do several art quilts. One of those is still in progress.

I LOVE!!! The Quilt Show. There are SO MANY new techniques that I want to try, and so many new quilters/teachers that I will be following online.

Thanks for the tutorial on following publicly. I have a wordpress blog and have always had difficulty following blogger blogs publicly, but now I think it will be easier!!!
