Rowenta iron winner!




#245 is Sooz!

Congratulations. I know that you'll love this iron. I love mine! Email me at dana@oldredbarnco.com so I can get your shipping address.

Next Monday will be Week 3 of the quilt along. . . and feature another great giveaway. Of course all leading up to the mac daddy of giveaways. A Janome 6600.

Oh, by the way. Have I mentioned that I'll probably end up giving away the quilt I make too. I will if there are 4,972 entries for the sewing machine giveaway. Seems like a nice round number don't you think? I like things nice and orderly and predictable. Yep, that's me.

I'm dying to participate in a quilt a long, but my 25yr old Singer just croaked. I'm not even sure if I CAN quilt. I'm trying to learn through osmosis online, and hoping I can remember it all. I love all the pictures of quilts though.

Dayna said...

Congratulations to Sooz! I'm sure she will love the Rowenta. I love mine.
Gotta get those strips cut. That's a lot of strips for me to do. Maybe on Saturday.
I would like to add that Janome to my studio (read ... spare bedroom).

KIM said...

You crack me up! I hope all your wildest dreams come true :)

Amber said...

I was thinking the exact same thing as Amy - you are too funny!

Sandi said...

Oh, so close. Congratulations to Sooz. I was 248 and I was "wishin' and hopin'" my number was lucky. Maybe this means I still have some luck left and might win the "mac daddy of giveaways". I love how you write. What a treat!! I am going to post photos of my fabric choices. I am making this quilt because it is "sooooo outside my comfort zone"! I love all the fabrics I have chosen so know that I will love the end result, too. Thanks for doing this!!!

Julie @ Joy's Hope said...

I don't get it. How are you so stinking kind and generous??? Make a quilt and give it away. Total insanity. Just saying. Not complaining though.

Rafael's Mum said...

Congratulations Sooz ! So pleased for you ! Isn't it great ? Thanks Dana for organising it all and your commentary (and instruction). I'm so enjoying it all !

Little Miss Shabby said...

DeeRoo said...

Gre8 number!:) Congrats Sooz....I have one of those irons but I dropped it and it leaks but it still works...just get a few drips here and there!:) Really love checking the Flickr site everyday to see everyones progress. I feel like I have a lot of new friends. Thanks for doing this and thanks to Jodi at "This That and The Other" for turning us on to your Quilt-Along!:)

Terri said...

Hooray, Sooz! :)

I'll be cutting fabric this weekend, but my sewing machine is complaining a bit, so we'll have to see if that can be corrected before I start sewing. :(

Karin Schueller said...

Wow! I just found this... and if I can get caught up, I'm joining you!!! Thank you so much!

Angelia said...

I'm joining! I'm so excited! This will be my very first completed quilt :D I began a quilt with Wee Play in February, and I intend to work on that this summer, too, but I decided to play along with you guys. I have the perfect fabrics just waiting - Heather Bailey's Freshcut! I'm going to gather my stuff, press, cut and be all caught up by Monday. With your help, I can do this!

momid5 said...

all right then ..round numbers have IT. maybe the grand daddy sewing machine will be mine ...or..the play along will produce ( with my sew sew help) a quilt ! yea!

Gaylen said...

Can I still enter your sew along, my daughter just told me about it. My computer crashed and I had to get a new one so I have not been keeping up on things

Veri said...

hello, I've a question about the barn quilt. Is it possible to take 12 stripes and 6 fabrics? Or is it neccessary to take 12 fabrics and cut 6 stripes of each. I would be happy for an answer cause I'd like to share this too :-)
Many thanks and have a nice day!

Hi I am joining the quilt along and have posted about it on my blog

Norine said...

Sew along sounds like fun. I'll have to get my 12 fabrics together and cut my strips.

RoseofSharonStudio said...

Oh, Oh, Oh, I want to join too!!!
Am I to late? :(
Or can I catch up?

why not sew? said...

This is so much fun! I will post my strips on the flicker group. Thanks for hosting such a great quilt along!

Sherry said...

What a great give away. I am going to join am I surpose to let you know I'm doing the quilt or can I just start. This sounds like fun.

Susan said...

I am so excited to make this quilt. I am a novice sewer(really a novice) but have purchased my material, ironed it, cut it and am ready for the next step! Awesome!

Saucy said...

I am such the novice at sewing as well and quilting seems to have eluded me (she confesses as she is curled up under a 40-year old quilt made by her grandmother)... but really, I should attempt this!

Fiesta said...

I'm in the quilt along but I can't remember if I signed up to win the machine. PLease count me in.

Anonymous said...

Oh to be like the other sewing enthusiasts and own more than one machine! Then I can teach my friend to sew and we can quilt away! What fun!
Enjoy your day!

I just started with the contest and I know that I really am behind but I have never done a quilt and thought this looked like something I might be able to do and learn at the same time.

Thank you for doing this

supermompenny said...

I love quilting. I'm starting really late but i know I can catch up, if I can fight my 2 girls for a turn on my sewing machine. Never fails they only want to sew when I start a new project.
