Quilt Scene 2013 | Giveaway!

I received a couple complimentary copies of International Quilt Festival Quilt Scene 13/14 because my organizer baskets pattern is in it!


I designed them to fit on an Ikea Fintorp hanging rail, but I absolutely LOVE how they styled them in the magazine! It gives me an idea to make more for my studio! (I’ll put in on the list!)


It is so fun to see the work of several artists I’ve met while taping Quilting Arts TV or over the internet! Here’s Sue Bleiweiss’s fun flower pillow:


Susan Brubaker Knapp wrote a pattern for these really clever passport covers:


And here’s Jamie Fingal with her new line of fabric!

  1. I have never been to the Int’l Quilt Festival in Houston but would really like to. It’s a tad bit far from my home in Florida, but you never know, maybe one day!

  2. Wow, those baskets are beautiful!! I have never gone to QM & doubt I ever will, so I live vicariously through all the photos.

  3. I just want to go, have not been able to yet, but saving my spending money for someday!!!

  4. I went to the Sisters, Oregon quilt show (always the second weekend) in July with some friends who go every year. Great event! And these friends (who happen to be sisters!) have been to Houston. They say it is the ultimate quilt show. Huge!

  5. I, like you, have never been to the Houston Quilt Show. I do go to the Dallas show every year and it is fabulous. I understand the Houston show is about a million times bigger. What fun!!

  6. i have never been… it’s on that ever-growing “list” … but i sure do look forward to the magazine coming out each fall. your patterns are very cool, and i enjoy your newsletter! thanks candy.

  7. A little too far from WI for a drive to the show…but maybe some day. I am losing track, is this cover #3 now??! Congrats!
    If anyone else is reading this, look into Candy’s Dying 100 class if you have ANY interest in learning to dye. So easy and so fun!!!

  8. I have not been to the Houston Quilt Festival.

    I second the comment about Candy’s dyeing classes. They are great!

  9. I also have never been to Int’l Quilt Show, but one day! Houston is a great city and lots of fun, but I think it would be even more fun during the quilt show. I always get this issue, my virtual trip to the show. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

  10. Yes, I went to the Houston Quilt Festival like four year ago with my daughter and had a very good time…even so I am far for it/California / I was worth it…

  11. I dream of someday going to the Houston show! I love the baskets and such that are featured in the magazine and would love a copy so that I could make some. Thanks!!

  12. I’ve never been to the Houston Quilt Festival (or any quilt festival for that matter) but I’d love to check it out sometime!

  17. I’ve never been to the Quilt show but hope I will get there in the future but I may have to mortgage my house to be able to purchase as much as I can.

  18. I have been to Houston…It was great! Going to Portland next year since they cancelled Long Beach

  19. No, have never been, but it’s way past time I gave myself permission to go next year for sure. I want to go, you want to go…so let’s just go. Houston meet-up next November!

  24. I have never been to Hiuston Quilt show, have always wanted to go , just never have made it a reality. I have heard. It’s awesome.

  25. I’m going to festival this year for the first time … can’t wait! Love all the quilt artists you highlighted too.

  26. I would love to go to this festival – but it’s a bit far from where I am. I will definitely be on the hunt for this magazine. Lovely!

  27. I have never been to the Houston Show, but I am going to take classes at the Road to California in January!! I met a quilter though my blog who has invited me to go stay with her and we signed up for a weeks worth of classes! She is here in Canada now and we are actually meeting tomorrow for the first time. I told her it feels like a blind date! lol Boy, I hope she likes me or she may regret that invitation!! Quilters are such great people…..

  28. I have never been to the quilt festival—-maybe someday. I would love to have the related magazine. Your fabrics and products are all so beautiful! Love the hanging organizers.

  30. I’ve yet to make it to Houston, even though it’s only a 5 hour drive. It IS on my bucket list!
