What a great Saturday.  Can't get better than playing with beautiful fabrics on NATIONAL QUILT DAY.  Well, wait, yes it can, when we are GIVING AWAY GREAT STUFF, six winners in all.  I know, you are just jumping out of your seat with excitement.  So here goes.

THE PRIZES  - First Place - ONE WINNER will get an ORIGINAL ABBEY BAG made by yours truly.

I spent yesterday whipping up five new abbey bags.  Yes, there are that easy and that fun.  All those fabrics to choose from.  I chose Moda fabrics, one of my favorites.  And as Janice says, "ONE IS NEVER ENOUGH."  If you don't know what an Abbey Bag is, it is a pin cushion and a scrap bag or thread catcher.  Who knew practical could be so cute.

Here are the five to choose from.






Remember, choose your favorite one.  It may just be going home with you.

Second Place - We will have TWO WINNERS who will get to choose their THREE FAVORITE PATTERNS from Abbey Lane Quilts.  Find them all on our website,  Here is a sample.

Third Place -  THREE WINNERS will each get ONE PATTERN from Abbey Lane Quilts.


1.  Leave a comment at the end of this post and let us know WHICH ABBEY BAG, 1 thru 5, IS YOUR FAVORITE. Be sure to leave a way for us to contact you if you win.

2. Go to our website, , check out all the pattern, then LIST YOUR THREE FAVORITE in order in your comment.

Get even MORE chances to win by:

2. Mention our giveaway on your blog. Leave the link to your blog so we can visit you too. (TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS)

3. Become a follower by adding yourself to the follower group on the sidebar. We would love to have you as a blog friend and reader! If you are already a follower, just remind us.

4. More big news. ABBEY LANE QUILTS now has a FACEBOOK PAGE. If you are on FACEBOOK, take a look at our page, WE NEED FRIENDS. Just search Abbey Lane Quilts.  ADD US as one of your friends.
That's it.  GOOD LUCK.  We will randomly pick the winners a week from next Monday.  Oh yeah, Janice went to everyone's blogs during the last giveaway.  It is so fun to see what y'all are doing.

That's it.  Hope you all are as excited as we are.  Can't wait to see all your comments.

Janice and Marcea

Wow, I'm the first to comment. Awesome. What a fun give away. I hope I win with #5. I like it because it matches my sewing room which is done in reds & yellows. And you can't beat that fabric from MoMo. You have so many fun quilts but I think my favs are your two newest ones, Matchbox, Honey pie and My Ticket to Ride is my last of the three. But there is one more special quilt that I like of yours and it just happens to be in the Quilt Magazine that I used to teach my March Bag for the Bag Ladies Club, and it's even autograhped by both of you. That's a pretty great prize in itself don't you think? I will head back to my blog, and leave a new blog entry for this give away. I'm already a follower of your fun blog. Thanks, Shannon

Oh, it's not fair to only pick 3 favorites. I already own 6 of my very favorites. I absolutely love your patterns.

But the next ones would have to be 1) Dear Prudence, 2) Long Tall Sally, & 3) Strawberry Fields.........and because I hate to leave them out....Match Box, Waiting for Love, Garden Party, and Octopus Garden are honorable mentions!

Ok, so last night I went to Craft Warehouse with the intention to purchase the patter for the Abby Bag (Just re-did my sewing room and desperately need one) and they were SOLD OUT! Which means your contest is meant to be! lol! I love number one with number two a close second.

All the patters are super cute, but I love Match Box, Waiting for Love and Winter Wonderland. Thanks for all your really cute designs! Cheran

What an awesome giveaway. I like the second one best, though I confess that it was a toss up with the fourth one :). They are such wonderful little cool.
I presume you have a pattern for them :).
As far as the pattens were concerned i could not access your site past the front page...I tried clicking on everything i could think frustrating. They would have been good to see, especially as I was also tempted by the one on your post...Glad all Over...such a happy looking quilt.
You know I think we need a national quilting day here too.

Hugs, Sharon
