I am a follower. I am just getting started in primitive quilting. The president of our local quilt guild showed me her quilt that she is making. She goes to our local Goodwill and scoops up wool coats by the dozen and cuts them in to little pieces and makes beautiful things from them.

Cheryl said...

I love wool and primitives. My dream is to live in a log cabin. I have seen that magazine advertised and I would love to get a look inside.

Pippa Parsons said...

Ive just started looking into wool, I love country patchwork and I'd really be thrilled to win the magazine as its difficult to get english mags in france :)

gill said...

I started primitive quilting after seeing a beautiful quilt at our local quilt show!

Candace said...

I have piles of wool that I have been collecting. I just need to get started using it.

MONA said...

I finished a Sue Spargo pattern quilt and loved it! That inspired me to make a wool applique(inspired by Blackbird Designs and Sue Spargo)cover for my sewing machine. I've been appliquing primitive designs for several years now. Your give away is right up my alley that I would love to make a smaller quilt to hang and the wool would be a nice addition to my growing collection! Thanks for the chance of a win!

Monica said...

I fell in love with primitive quilting a few years ago when I came upon Primitive Gathering's books in a shop. I now have a respectable wool collection and am always look for something new to work on.

Debra said...

In my busy hectic life there is a place in the world I can get away from it all. My sewing room doing a nice primitive quilt with it's simplicity calms me down. It makes me think of other quilters who have lived before me and the legacy they left us as we are leaving legacies for those quilters after us.
Happy Holidays to all! And to all a quilt night!

Martina said...

I have never done it myself, but I love to look at it.And some time I would love to try it myself. I love the warmth those quilts give. Thanks so much!

quilterinmotion said...

My daughter made us Christmas stockings a few years ago and I fell in love with the look of wool. Then last year I met a German lady who does nothing but wool primitive quilts. I have no wool but want to do at least a wall hanging in wool to try it out. I'd love to have your wool.

Maria Kievit said...

Haven't tried this technique yet. Would love to try it.

StitchinByTheLake said...

Several years ago I got to attend the Houston International Quilt Festival. That's the first time I encountered wool in quilts...and oh my goodness I was hooked. I've done several small projects and one large quilt. The quilt is applique and not yet quilted because I'm scared to get started! I love the pastel wools you're offering - they're so hard to find. blessings, marlene

Janet said...

I've only done a little bit of primitive quilting - I purchased a couple of kits for little candle mats last year. But I love hand stitching and found this kind of sewing quite enjoyable. I'd love to try the pattern you are giving away. Thanks for a chance to win.

Pattilou said...

There is a comment not showing up here. It came through dated 12/10 at 12:34 p.m. which would throw the numbers off a bit from this. There are now 15 respondents rather than the fourteen the blogger shows. This post should now put the numbers back on the right track.
Thnx,
pattilou

I'm not sure what primitive quilting is, but I love quilting using some wool and I tend to make country-style quilts. I think they are cozy and interesting and they usually are in "earthy colors".
Thanks for the giveaway.

I am a fan of anything Primitive and a Quilter though I have never tried a Primitive Wool Quilt. Loved Primitive since I joined the Chocolate Crow Trader Collective (now closed) many years ago.

Primitive quilting just speaks to me, I really love the look, it makes me happy.
Thanks for the giveaway

Judi said...

I'm into all quilting - can't really say why I love one or the other. I do love the heritage and history behind quilting, so that's probably it. :)

SassyCathy said...

My Aunt introduced me to primitive quilting. We are not so far away from Gee's Bend.
She and my sister inspire me to do more and get out of my box :)
Thank you for the chance to win :)
I hope you and yours have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
and
remember the reason for the season.

I am a big fan of the recycling of wool and penny rugs caught my eye. It grew from there. It is fun to find and prepare the fabric. The textures are fascinating too. I also love the rustic homely quality.

LindaSue said...

I guess I got started because of the cute material I found or was it because of the little book I found on primitive quilts. Who can remember cause it was so long ago. Haven't done any primitive in awhile but plan on getting back to it. Funny, the only two wall hanging or quilts I ever sold were two primitive wall handings. Should have told me something. So put my name in Patti.

Great that you have gotten so many hits on your blog.

Kelly said...

FOllowing you :-) I like anything primitive or historical :-)

Thank you for the chance to win!
