    Love the Sealife collection. I would like to win #55010 Sea Turtle.
    I had the wonderful experience of swimming behind a sea turtle when I was snorkeling in Hawaii!

    I love all of your patterns. 90008 August Holiday House would be my choice to receive. Thanks for the opportunity. I don’t have bunions, but my oldest daughter who is a dancer does. No surgery for her yet. I hear they can be very painful. Hope you have a complete recovery & glad to hear you are doing well.

    Your new Beach Redwork Pattern is my favorite. I hope to see more redwork patterns, and I like funky birds (hint, hint).

    Can you have bunions on your little toe side of your foot? That’s the side that bothers me.

    I love your Holiday Houses collection. The one I really like is 90002May because my dream is to own a quilt shop or run a quilt retreat business.

    As far as having a bunion, I haven’t experienced that. However, I have broken the same foot twice, so I know the pain and the hobbling that you are going through! Hope recovery goes fast!

    I’d choose November Holiday House Quilt Pattern item 90011 because I love pumpkins and fall! I love all your patterns and it is difficult to choose just one. 🙂 Thanks for the great giveaway! I’ve never had a bunion.

    I love the Black Eyed Susan (#10017) – my daughter has been decorating her apartment at school with all things Maryland. Also, I think I have a bunion on my right foot. There’s a bump there, just like yours, and it throbs if I’m in really high heels for too long. How did you know when it was time to get it taken care of?

      Sounds like it is time for you! But my pain was in my second toe. The big one was really pushing into the second which raised it and all my shoes hurt quite a bit – even tennis shoes because that second toe was popping up. I was told the earlier the better – once it starts bothering you because the younger you are the better it heals.

    I would love the 10008
 Poppy pattern. Thank you for your generosity! Hope the progress with your foot moves forward : )

    I love everything you design. My favorite is the Holiday Houses, October 90010. It’s my birth month. Would like to do all the Houses and use as a calendar, with days hanging from the bottom of the house. I never know what day it is.
    I have never had a bunion, I am sure it is painful.

 October House. I love your bird patterns too though

    Hello from Minnesota! (No bunion stories for me yet but I did get trench foot in the Army from not keeping my feet dry and for years after that soldiers came to me for advice about foot problems so I’ve probably seen everything else!) I love the Scotties quilt pattern #20005; it’s delightful!

    I think your art is wonderful. It was hard to choose between the seascapes, flowers, and the Holiday houses. My heart sped up for the September Holiday House. On the subject of bunions, a lady in my church just recovered from her first foot and now out of the wheel chair is going back for the other foot. OUCH! My DIL also has bunions but she cannot have surgery at this point (no inusrance, has to work). I hope you recover quickly. Thank you. for the giveaway.


  48. Pat V.
    Dec 12, 2012 @ 02:12:14

    I love your patterns! I would choose one of the holiday houses, probably May. I would hang the finished project on my studio (aka dining room) door!

    Thank you for the chance!

    While I found your children’s quilts just lovely (oh the girl one was so “sweet”!) I really need a good stocking pattern and your very first pattern definitely fits the bill! I need some jingle bells LOL.

    So if I was one of the lucky ones I would like Prairie Point Stocking Quilt Pattern 30001.

    Sorry I don’t know a thing about bunions!

    Dec 14, 2012 @ 06:35:35

    My birthday’s in September, so I chose the September Holiday House pattern 90009 for $12…..although I like ALL the houses. You’ve had a lot of fun designing those, I can tell. There’s nothing like them anywhere. No bunions here, but, before I began wearing Nike shoes, I had a lot of corns……and some of my toes want to cross over. I suppose I’ll be having some “corrective shoeing” done sooner or later (that’s farrier or blacksmith talk….you know…horses). I love horses. I hope you are progressing well; it’s got to be uncomfortable.

    I just love the Holiday Houses and since it is December that is the pattern I would choose 900012
