The End!

 
I hope you've been following along with me and enjoyed every bit of it like I did. Can you believe those quilts?  GORGEOUS!!!
 
The whole point of this tour was to give you even more inspiration. Sometimes it's hard to envision a quilt in different fabrics- now you have lots of ideas.
 
So what was your favorite!?
 
 

 

 
 
I'm having a hard time deciding. I'd like ALL OF THEM!  :o)
 
To thank you for following along I'm going to give away a few copies of the book

 
Where all of the patterns for these quilts came from.
 
To enter all you need to do is
1.) make sure you're a follower  :o)
2.)  tell me which quilt from the tour was your favorite
3.) tell me which quilt you would make first if you won the book.
 
I'll pick the winners on FRIDAY!

giddy99 said...

I loved Ellie's remix of Helix and I'd probably attempt that one myself!

Lisa Marie said...

I follow your blog. I LOVED April's version of Oddball -- the addition of the flamingo was so cute! I think the first one I want to make though is the one that looks like a spiral.

I really enjoyed the tour! I think my favorite (hard to pick just one!) would be April's Switchback. I would either make Helix or Switchback first. Actually, I could start two at the same time, right?!?!

Shannon said...

My favorite is April's Swithcback and I would start with that one! I follow on google reader. Loved the tour!

charlotte said...

Tough call. My two favorites were helix and oddball. I thing I would do oddball first and then helix. Loved them both that much. Thanks for showing the other ways to envision a quilt. It helps to see the possibilities.

refibered said...

I *love* Michael's colorful helix, and Ellie's teal background helix. Pretty sure my first quilt from the book will be either an Oddball or Switchback quilt.

Kirsten said...

I really like the Michaels rainbow version of the Helix quilt. I would love the make the Caution quilt as I am really into Chevrons right now. I am also a follower.

Wow...it's a tough call between April's 'Switchback' and Michael's 'Helix'...I want to make both of those patterns! I'd probably pick the scappy Helix first because I have so many scraps. Love your book...I'm a follower!

Linda said...

I'm a follower; Garner quilt is my favorite; and I'd pick Helix to make if I win the book. Thanks very much for these chances to win.

Loved April's quilt best and would probably try that one or else the helix first...I am a happy follower :)

Jodie said...

Just one favourite, now that's a tough one. I'd have to say Sherri's Urban Decay, I would make this one first. This would be such a great book to own with 3 or my 4 children being boys. Thanks!

Lisa Reyes said...

Lived the helix quilt. That might be the very first guy quilt pattern I'd make.

Cecilia said...

I love patchwork and paper's version of the helix quilt. Even if I don't win, I'll be buying the book to make the gamer quilt for my brother! Thanks so much for your continuing inspiration.

Jeanenne Nielsen said...

I like Shari's quilt. I love the purples. I would use purple in any of the quilts, as that is my favorite color.

I would love to make the Urban Decay quilt.

robin said...

I am a happy follower of your blog!

Shari's quilt has wonderful colors.

Sowing Stitches said...

I seriously can not pick just one quilt! I would have to start with the first quilt and work my way through systematically quilt by quilt! Quite possibliy working on 2color variations at a time! I love how on this posting you have given the variations of the cover quilt and the orange version so closely together...it has really set my brain to spinning...as in, how would that look in purples and indigo and lime? Or the variation at the top in beautiful summer brights so closely displayed to the green/brown version from the book....now that has me leaning in the direction of replacing the grays with cobalt and navy and the bright colors with yellow, gold, tangerine and orange...or maybe head in another direction and use our local football team colors! I just love this book! It provides such enjoyment and unleashes so much creativity!!!!! Now to find a way to make dirty dishes and laundry piles vanish to allow more time to sew!!!!!!!!
I am a follower via FB & via email (gotta make sure not to miss a posting... :D) and at this very moment....I like the Switchback quilt the most...but seriously, I need to find a way to create more time these quilts are all wonderful!!!! :D

I like Michael's quilt the best - love the asymmetry! And because I love it, I'd make it first!!

Deb said...

I live several including Sherri's Urban Decay, and Michael's - would have a hard time deciding which one to make first! I'm a follower - thanks for the chance to win a copy of the book.

MaddyMaze Studio said...

First...what a great book! I would make "caution" first, but for my husband. We lobe Yosemite and I am going to turn some of our prints into fabric for it.

I really Like Vickie's from Spun Sugar Quilts Caution...love the colors!

I'm a follower under GFC.

Thanks! Angie

Angela @ Cottage Magpie said...

I'm a follower! My favorite quilt from the tour was Switchback, and that's also the quilt I would make first if I won the book. It's such a great quilt and has kind of a southwestern feel that both my Dad and my husband would love! I might have to make two!

After that, I might just have to make April's (Making Ends Meet) version of the Oddball Quilt. I love the bright colors and the "odd ball"! :-)

Thanks for the opportunity and your generosity to us all!

~Angela~

Alexis said...

I think Michael's quilt is my favorite. I love all the color. I think I'd start with Oddball or Ivy League first though. Thanks for the blog tour and giveaway. It's great.

Sonja said...

Shannon's is my favourite! And I would make Urban Decay first (just love it!).

Erin said...

I think all of the quilts are great! My favorite one is "caution" and I would start with that one.

Kim-the-girl said...

I think they are all so great! I think my favorite is April's version of Switchback. But I think I'd start with Ivy League. Great job and congratulations on your book! I'm your newest follower!

Josie McRazie said...

I love this book! I would first do a odd ball! And I loved the idea of putting something else in that spot! Very cool idea!

MamaLadyBug said...

I'm finding it hard to decide between Michael's and Lisa's Helix. I think I'd combine the two and use the bright background like Lisa with the rainbow colors like Michael. Awesome job!!! So many quilts, so hard to choose!

Nancy, Near Philadelphia said...

Shannon's, without a doubt. I love it and I want to make it.

Gill said...

My favourite is April's Oddball and that's the one I'd make first!
I'm a happy follower!

Caryn said...

Michelle's Helix quilt is my favorite too. I love that she got scraps from friend's to piece it together.

Caryn said...

I would make Oddball first.

Lindsay said...

I loved Shannons. And I would LOVE the book, especially since the boys in my house are the ones that use quilts the most. I don't know what one I'd make first, might have to flip a coin!
