Book and Charm Pack Giveaway – 3 Times the Charm
4.4.2011

Thank you to everyone who commented!  This contest is now closed.  To see who won, click here: WINNERS

Do you like simple, quick projects that use charms? If so, then this book, 3 Times the Charm! by Barbara Groves & Mary Jacobson, would be a good addition to your library. 

The authors (from Me & My Sister Designs) show how the use of a pre-cut charm pack (or cut your own 5” squares from your stash) along with a small amount of additional yardage can make a delightful little quilt. There are seven designs but wait, Barbara & Mary have shown each design in three different color options with 21 unique looks!

Shown here is an example of what you will see in this book.

This is Dora with two additional options, the quilt measures 30-1/2” x 30-1/2” and uses 25 assorted charm squares. It would be perfect as a baby quilt, a table topper, or a wall hanging. It all depends on the choice of fabric!

This is such a fun book that we thought you would enjoy it too, so we’re giving away the book to three lucky winners. Each winner will also receive a charm pack from one of three baby-friendly collections: Around Town, Sunday Afternoon, and our new flannel group Sunny Day. For a chance to win, comment below and let us know what your favorite pre-cut is: Charms? Fat quarters? 10” squares? Something else? Giveaway ends at midnight PST, on Sunday the 10th. The winners will be selected randomly on the 11th.

RULES: No purchase necessary.  Must have a US or Canada mailing address.  One entry per person.  Must provide a valid email address so that we can contact you if you win.

    What a nice book…love the pattern you used as an example. I could put this to very good use.

  2. patricia - April 4, 2011

    I think layer cakes are my favorite precut, but I am starting to gather several charm packs for some upcoming projects.

  3. Micheline - April 4, 2011

    It would be nice to win this book; i have a collection of charm packs ( collections from CT fabric) and don’t know what to do with them.
    thanks

  4. Ceil - April 4, 2011

    If the Dora pattern is any indication, this looks like a great book and a wonderful way to use those charm packs I’ve been acquiring. What a great way to show off fabric!

  5. chrissie - April 4, 2011

    i really like this book! here’s hoping i win! thanks for the chance.

  6. Kathy Biggs - April 4, 2011

    My favorite pre-cut is a FQ’s because you have so many cutting options;but I really like them all. A Charm pack is great for making half-square-triangles. This book looks like fun. I really like that they show different color ways for the same project. Would love to win!

  7. Lisa - April 4, 2011

    Looks like a wonderful book! Love layer cakes, there’s just so much you can do with them, but charm packs are so fun to collect, I think it’s a tie!

  8. Cat Lady - April 4, 2011

    The book sounds like a real winner (and I am hoping I am one of them!). I prefer charm packs and fat quarters. The smaller charm packs give me a floater for what is in a collection. When I really like what I see, I like to get fat quarters so I will have more fabric to work with when making a larger project.

  9. Barbara Setterdahl - April 4, 2011

    I need this book. I love charm packs & jelly rolls because of the great color coordination. Now I need some patterns to use them on. Hope I win. Thanks for these little contests.

  10. robin - April 4, 2011

    Charm packs are great, but I love fat quarters.

  11. sunshine randall - April 4, 2011

    I’ve never used charm packs before, but the Dora pattern looks like one I’d be ready to try a charm pack on.. I really like it.

  12. Shelia - April 4, 2011

    I really like these designers. The hit the nail on the head.

  13. Joan - April 4, 2011

    I love charm packs! I enjoy making baby quilts and these pre-cuts are so handy to use. This book looks like it would give me some great new patterns

  14. Stephanie - April 4, 2011

    I love all cuts of fabric, but my favorite is the charm pack. So easy to put together and a wonderful treat to be able to do it quickly if needed. The book looks fabulous. Love the yellow and blue pattern!

  15. Ruth B - April 4, 2011

    I would love a book on charm squares. Charm packs are such a great way to get a big variety of prints but sometimes I don’t know what to do with them.

  16. cate - April 4, 2011

    I love, love love, precuts, They are perfect for the color challenged, It takes all the guesswork out of planning a quilt,My favorites are 10″ squares and fat quarters are just so versatile. I would love having this book and I am so excited about your new flannels, I hope there are more to come.

  17. Caroline - April 4, 2011

    I love charm packs! They are such a great way to purchase pretty fabric and this book would help me put my collection to use.

  18. Lisa M. - April 4, 2011

    Fat Quarters are the most versital for me, but I love the color combos you get with charms or jelly rolls. This looks like a great book. Thanks for the chance :-)

  19. Dixie - April 4, 2011

    I like the versatility of 10″ squares.

  20. lynda lewis - April 4, 2011

    I love the charm packs. The fabric is cut, matched and ready to go. THis book sounds just what I’m looking for. Fast, easy and fun!!!

  21. Katie (aka Kekibird) - April 4, 2011

    I’ve just discovered Charm Packs and bought a bunch through eBay! Now….what to do with them?? I’d love to have a book with ideas :)

  22. Kyla Olson - April 4, 2011

    I love charm squares. I make a lot of gifts that I give away and a charm pack is a perfect place to start when making a table runner, table topper, or wall hanging. I made some cute runners for Christmas and now and started on spring ideas. I also love it when I can get a yard or so of coordinating fabric to make the borders and binding/backing. PS. I love Connecting Threads!!

  23. Linda - April 4, 2011

    Love the book, love the charm packs, love to win!

  24. Rebecca - April 4, 2011

    I’m a big fan of fat quarters but would love to see what kind of projects charm packs can make!

  25. Gail Wood - April 4, 2011

    I do love Me and My Sister Designs, which are charming and charm friendly. Sounds like a great book and drawing!

  26. Becky Weimer - April 4, 2011

    I think layer cakes are my favorite as they offer the most flexibility. I like making smaller quilts as I can try out a pattern to see if I like it enough to make a bigger quilt! :D

  27. Karen McLelland - April 4, 2011

    My favorite is the charm packs! I just need to find the time to sew!

  28. Debbie Samuelson - April 4, 2011

    Oh one of my favorite designing team :) i would have to say I love 10″ squares right now, but that changes :) Thanks for the chance!

  29. Judy Urban - April 4, 2011

    Would love the book I like layer cakes and charm packs I just love fabric.

  30. Teri M. - April 4, 2011

    My favorites are charm packs just because of the price. But I have been wanting to try out a layer cake.

  31. JanisT - April 4, 2011

    I must love fat quarters because I have quite a collection of them! I do like the variety of patterns in jelly rolls or charm packs and the ease in whipping up a quick quilt!

  32. NHSOMND - April 4, 2011

    Charms are great, but Fat Quarters are my favorite for their versatility.

  33. Sharice Thompson - April 4, 2011

    My favorite is fat quarters. There is just so much you can do with them.

  34. Kristi - April 4, 2011

    I adore Charm Packs. Seeing all the options of a line in these squares challenges me to find creative ways to make each one shine. This book would be a great way to assist in that goal!

  35. Cathy Koester - April 4, 2011

    I’ve been using charm packs. Lots of ideas out there for patterns. Another book would be great.

  36. Amy Louttit - April 4, 2011

    I favorite are fat quarters. But I find myself using charm squares and 2 1/2 strips more and more.

  37. Marla - April 4, 2011

    I love all kinds of precuts – I have a stash full of layer cakes, jelly rolls and charm packs – anytime I see some on sale, I stock up for fun projects like in this book!

  38. Amy - April 4, 2011

    I really like charm packs and jelly rolls, so nice to not have to cut the strips all the time and have the variety!!

  39. Fredricka Brown - April 4, 2011

    I love fat quarters. right now I am using jellyrolls it would be fun to use the charm packs next in the sunny day pack.

  40. Darlene - April 4, 2011

    I love them all – although my preference is for layer cakes and strips…..I love layer cakes for applique projects and the fabric all coordinate!

  41. terri petasek - April 4, 2011

    5″ Charm packs are my favorite, although any pre-cut is fabulous.

  42. Carol - April 4, 2011

    I have recently gotten some charm pack from you. I have not decided what to do with them so this could be a big help. It is always great to have new books to the stash to help make decisions how to use fabric.

  43. Marilyn Vincent - April 4, 2011

    Fat quarters are my all time favorite but…..I also love the charms. Have quite a collection of charms that I am looking for great ideas to use them. I am also purchasing some of the 2 1/2″ strips. I am thinking that the charms and strips can be combined.

  44. Gina - April 4, 2011

    I have a few charm packs, and no ideas to use them, I am so interested in this book! Looks like tons of fun for a beginner like me. I am a fan of cutting yardage just because I like to prewash, so fat quarters would be my favorite.

  45. RANCHMOM - April 4, 2011

    The Charm packs are great for viewing an entire collection with out spending a large amount of money. I can then use the charms for different projects and for applique. I try to keep a supply of charms handy for quick, potholders and coasters for gifts. More patterns using them would be great.

  46. Pam - April 4, 2011

    I have collected fat quarters for years, but find I have lots of leftovers. I am starting to love charm packs and layer cakes.

  47. barbara blair - April 4, 2011

    I have so many scraps that I could use up with this book! I love fat quarters, because when I buy fabric, I usually don’t know exactly how I’m going to use it. Fat quarters give you lots of options!

  48. Anne Welker - April 4, 2011

    I love fat quarters most of all, but do have a few charms on hand.

  49. Carie Shinn - April 4, 2011

    I usually pick up a pack of fat quarters, but just started buying 10″ square packs and charm packs. They are all so versatile! Would love to receive the book also :) Thanks!

  50. Carmela Morrissey - April 4, 2011

    I tend to buy 12 in squares if I don’t have a specific project in mind…. this book makes me think I need some charm packs !

  51. Mary Jo C - April 4, 2011

    I’m a fat quarter’s fan. They provide the fabric quantity needed for a variety of projects.

  52. Jessica - April 4, 2011

    Thanks for the giveaway! I can’t wait to see more of that book.

  53. Wendy Paull - April 4, 2011

    I, like most people, love having fat quarters, but can VERY rarely afford a whole line of them. 10″ squares on the other hand, allow you to either cut 4 charm packs from them, or room to fussy cut. They are also nice for lines that include large prints.

  54. Rosalyn - April 4, 2011

    I love fabric! that’s all :)

  55. Elizabeth - April 4, 2011

    I am always looking for new patterns!!! Love Connecting threads!!!

  56. Robin - April 4, 2011

    I love charm packs. I find them irresistible!!

  57. Sarah Z. - April 4, 2011

    I like charm squares, but love working with all pre-cuts!

  58. Charlotte H. - April 4, 2011

    I love working with precuts. Makes life a little easier.

  59. karen S - April 4, 2011

    I guess my favorite precuts are FQs although I’m beginning to become very enamored with jelly rolls too.

  60. Kathy Raabe - April 4, 2011

    I love any fabrics – charm squares are great because you can do so much with them. Pre-cuts let you get down to business sooner. The book looks like a fabulous collection of new ideas. Thanks for the chance.

  61. Ramona K - April 4, 2011

    What a great book! Lots of versatility!

  62. Susan Ponte - April 4, 2011

    This book looks delicious! I love charm packs the most.

  63. Betty HH - April 4, 2011

    I like fat quarters because they give you the option of cutting most of the other shapes. But charm squares are so much fun for making a quick small gift, I am being drawn to them more lately. The book looks great!

  64. Nan MacArthur - April 4, 2011

    I have been ordering from Connecting Threads whenever I have need of more fabrics and the quality is great, the selections are fantastic and beautiful. I love charm squares best as then I can just start sewing. Lately I have been ordering by the yard however and am now making a baby quilt for my off-in-the-future-someday great grandbabies. I am making baby quilts now while I am able to sew—by the time I really get those great grandbabies I may not be able to sew. So someday they will have quilts made by thier great grandma. I would love to win this book as it looks like it would provide me with some beautiful patterns I could use for these baby quilts. Thanks so much for this contest. –Nan

  65. Muriel B - April 4, 2011

    I love fabric in general; any size any shape! But my favorite to work with are FQ’s. I also like jelly rolls!

  66. Michele - April 4, 2011

    I love all the different pre-cut sizes. I can’t just pick one. I just started quilting this past year and would love to win this book.

  67. Marie H - April 4, 2011

    I love charms and jelly rolls. You can do so many options with these two. I also love your thread…as I am using up my older threads, I am replacing them with Connecting Threads 100% cotton. Thank you so much for producing a great website and wonderful products.

  68. Dottie - April 4, 2011

    Sounds like a great book to add to the library. I’d like to win too!!

  69. rayna - April 4, 2011

    I like the layer cakes. You can cut charms from them with minimal effort and they are big enough to cut strips for larger blocks too.

  70. Suzee - April 4, 2011

    I seem to gravitate towards jelly rolls, but I do have over 20 charm packs waiting to be turned into something wonderful..

  71. Trudy Lindemann - April 4, 2011

    I just saw this in a quilt magazine and thought it looked so neat! I would love to win it, I have so many scraps and not a lot of yardages left, it would be fun to do something new!

  72. Viv - April 4, 2011

    I like jelly rolls. I seem to be able to do many things with them.

  73. Jennifer - April 4, 2011

    I love charms as they are inexpensive yet I feel like I am getting a lot for my money!

  74. Rose Ann Bybee - April 4, 2011

    I would love to win this! I haven’t won anything for a long, long time!

  75. Roz LeFrancois - April 4, 2011

    I think the charm packs are a very versatile size. They can be used alone or in combinations. They save so much time. I would really like to have this book to increase my charm pack pattern collection.

  76. jane g - April 4, 2011

    I love charm packs because they can be used for many things; quilts, bags, and smaller gift items.

  77. Carol Patterson - April 4, 2011

    My favorite size of precuts are 5 inch charms.

  78. Shelley Serby - April 4, 2011

    I like 10″ squares the best. There are loads of things you can do with them, much more than the 5″ variety. I’d love to win this book!

  79. Elaine - April 4, 2011

    I like using fat quarters. I can cut strips, squares and other shapes from them. I own quite a few charm packs right now but have never used any of them. I would love to win the book.

  80. Diane C - April 4, 2011

    I am addicted to buying and using fat quarters, but I also like charm packs. Heck I like all fabric no matter what size or cut it is!!!

  81. Julie Edmonds - April 4, 2011

    Hands down Charm Packs are my favorite pre-cut – you get so many different coordinating options at a great cost!

  82. Kris - April 4, 2011

    I love FQs for their versatility. I also buy charm packs. Both are small purchases, i.e impulse buys.

  83. Melissa Troutman - April 4, 2011

    I love working with all types of pre-cuts. I love jelly rolls and charm squares. When fabrics are large scale, I love working with 10″ squares as well. (I guess you can say I have a bit of a fabric addiction.)

  84. Wenonah - April 4, 2011

    cool!

  85. Vicki - April 4, 2011

    Jelly rolls and fat quarters are my favorites! They are so versatile and inexpensive!

  86. Joelle Lambert - April 4, 2011

    It would be nice to have some sharming ideas!

  87. lynda langton - April 4, 2011

    i bought several charms packs and would love to use them.expecting our first granddchild in september and would like to make the dora pattern with the charm packs.thanks for offering this great book.

  88. Cindy Saffell - April 4, 2011

    I love 5″ charms and jelley rolls, and I becoming a fan of layer cakes. I used to like to do all of my own cutting of all, because of the long hours I work – the precut charms and jelly rolls cuts down on the cutting time and gives me more time to design and piece the quilt.
    Thanks for the contest.Love your site.

  89. Rhonda Phillips - April 4, 2011

    I really like fat quarters.

  90. Pat - April 4, 2011

    Love charm packs–Disappearing 9 Patch has become a favorite!

  91. Gail Griffey - April 4, 2011

    I love fat quarters and charm packs.

  92. Dee - April 4, 2011

    My favorite is definitely charms. Because even when I’m watching my budget, I can still get a charm pack and fill my need for a morsel from a particular line of fabric.

  93. Traci - April 4, 2011

    I think layer cakes are my favorite pre-cut. Maybe because the name? Who can’t LOVE layer cake?

  94. Gina McKinsey - April 4, 2011

    I’m just discovering pre-cuts, and have ordered several 2-1/2″ strips packages that my daughter and I are using. I also got a package of charms to get my mind working on possibilities. Oh, this is just so much fun! So many new things to discover, and getting a jump start with the 5″ charms and strips is so motivating.

  95. Patrice - April 4, 2011

    Layer cakes and fat quarters are my faves!! So much you can do with them!!

  96. robin - April 4, 2011

    This book looks great. I like buying layer cakes so I can make them into several charm sets if I choose or keep them 10×10.

  97. Judy - April 4, 2011

    Love the 5 inch charms! they are so versatile, especially as half square triangles!

  98. Jeanette - April 4, 2011

    I mostly buy fat quarters but I am buying more charm squares now to make it faster to get some projects done. I have had my eyes this book and would LOVE to win it! Thanks for the chance.

  99. Connie White - April 4, 2011

    I like both charm packs & fat quarters but I think the fat quarters are my favorite as I seem to purchase more of them. With them one can have enough fabric for applique, paper piecing, or any smaller areas in a quilt. The book looks wonderful and I would love to win a copy!

  100. Sylvia Ulrich - April 4, 2011

    My favorites are candy bars and fat quarters! Great giveaway, thanks so much.

  101. Sue Goodin - April 4, 2011

    What a fun looking book. Would love to win it.

  102. Cindy - April 4, 2011

  103. Sue Kirk - April 4, 2011

    I love jelly rolls and charm packs. I even use them together. Would love to have this book, looks like a good one. (It’s my turn to win something!)

  104. Elisa - April 4, 2011

    I was addicted to charm packs but lately LOVING 10″ layer cakes! And jelly rolls! So many blocks – so little time! Love Me & My Sister!

  105. Diane S. - April 4, 2011

    I am new to quilting. I would love to try these patterns.

  106. Dawn Hollingsworth - April 4, 2011

    I am a fat quarter junkie!! However, I have several other pre-cut “styles” like, charm packs, jelly rolls and layer cakes. I think this book would certainly help me diminish my stash :)

  107. Sherry M. - April 4, 2011

    I am a newbie to quilting, so right now,all I know to do is the 5″ precuts. I would love the chance to try something different. I purchased some fabric and I’m not sure how to cut it, so keeping my fingers crossed!

  108. Robin - April 4, 2011

    I love the Me & My Sister designs and fabric. Personally I like FQ’s and layer cakes but am happy with anything!!

  109. Kelly - April 4, 2011

    I love jelly rolls. Lots of good patterns out there for them, and can be used in lots of basic patterns as well.

  110. Fran VDV - April 4, 2011

    A few years ago, I cut my scraps into 2-1/2″ strips. This is a most useful size – great for log cabins, 9-patches,rail fence blocks and more!

  111. OHSue - April 4, 2011

    I just can’t walk by a fat quarter….I love them.

  112. Debbie Jewel - April 4, 2011

    I have a Fat Quarter addiction, but like those Charm Packs too! Thanks Connecting Threads

  113. Sandy A - April 4, 2011

    Thanks for the chance to win this book! I saw it on their blog and have been thinking about it ever since.
    My favorite precut is the FQ, but I have several charm packs that I don’t know what to do with! This book would help solve that! :P

    scotty4me39 @ yahoo(dot)com

  114. Katy P - April 4, 2011

    Charm packs are nice but I’m a glutton for more…… so FQ’s are my favorite. I can make more scrappy quilts that way

  115. Nancy N - April 4, 2011

    Wow, looks like a great book! I’m just a beginner, but I would have to say the charm packs are my favorite precuts!

  116. Alissa - April 4, 2011

    I would say right now charm packs are my favorite!

  117. Jeanine Williams - April 4, 2011

    Charms! I am in the process of planning a quilt retreat around them for September…A Charmed Retreat.

  118. Jill Wright - April 4, 2011

    Fat quarters because you can get so much out of them.

  119. leah - April 4, 2011

    I prefer yardage… as everytime I get a precut, I want more fabrics… Although I own 3 charm packs, I haven’t found the correct patterns yet….

  120. Wendy - April 4, 2011

    Love precuts – jelly rolls are my favorite now, but also love fat quarters.

  121. PattyS - April 4, 2011

    I love Charm Packs because they are so easy to piece together. Great Looking Book!!

  122. tamie powell - April 4, 2011

    I have really enjoyed the 2.5 in strip sets. I revised the coin collecting pattern and made a beautiful wedding gift with strip sets! But, I also like 2.5 in charms. If it’s pre cut it’s good :)

  123. Lorrie Deal - April 4, 2011

    Charms are the only precuts I ever use and I can’t get Enuff!! This is wonderful!!

  124. Joellyn partyka - April 4, 2011

    I tend to collect both charm squares and jelly rolls so would love the book for ideas what to do with them

  125. Darlene Stranz - April 4, 2011

    I am a beginner and I’m really enjoying the charm packs. Thank goodness there are such things to purchase especially for me because they put colors together that I’d never think would go together and they make the patterns look great. Charm packs for me!!

  126. Roanne - April 4, 2011

    I prefer fat-quarters. I find I have more options for their use. The book looks like it’s filled with great ideas that might help make a dent in my stash, and I love when books and magazines show their quilts in a variety of color ways.

  127. Darcie - April 4, 2011

    I’m in love with all cuts of fabric, but I’ll admit that a layer cake is not only fun to eat, but a ton of fun to quilt with!!!

  128. Bonnie Blessing - April 4, 2011

    I like this book. I guess my favorite pre-cut would have to be fat quarters. If I could choose more than one then 10″ squares would follow.

  129. Dorothy - April 4, 2011

    I just started collecting charms. Just received an order from CT and would love to get a book to help me use the charms I just purchased.

  130. Debbie Davis - April 4, 2011

    Love 5 inch charm squares – great way to audition fabric choices!

  131. Angel Duncan - April 4, 2011

    I love all fabric! :) Charm packs are probably my favorite though because they are perfect for making postage stamp and 2″ charm quilts.

  132. Lori Gulley - April 4, 2011

    I love fat quarters and 10 inch squares. They both make mini quilts perfect!

  133. Lesa - April 4, 2011

    I use to love charm packs, but I tried a layer cake & I like it best cuz you can get more than one of each pattern. I LOVE the book & would LOVE to win! Pick Me! Pleeeeeze!

  134. Betty - April 4, 2011

    My stack of charms are in my pile just waiting for new projects.

  135. ginger - April 4, 2011

    Fat quarters are definitely my favorite, but I would be delighted to win the charm pack and this book!

  136. Tennye - April 4, 2011

    I think Charm Packs are great, but I also use the 5 1/2 inch square as a method of storing stash that is too small for a fat quarter, so this book would be a huge benefit for my stash reduction.

  137. sylvia - April 4, 2011

    I have never used charm packs, but would love to give them a try!

  138. Chriss - April 4, 2011

    what a great book.. and Connecting Threads has so many great charm packs…

  139. Ginger - April 4, 2011

    What a fun book!
    My favorite precuts are a tie between charms and fat quarters. Both are very versatile and have so much potential.

  140. Judi - April 4, 2011

    What a great book. I like what we call little charmers which are actually a fat 16th. I make minature quilts and these work great.

  141. Mona - April 4, 2011

    Just purchased my first charm pack! Need the book so I know what to do with it! :)

  142. Amy C - April 4, 2011

    Layer cakes are my favorite which is funny because I purchase more charm packs.

  143. Regina - April 4, 2011

    I like both layer cakes and fat quarters – layer cakes for quilts – because i can always cut them down into 4 sets of charms if need be – and fat quarters for totes and purses and larger items.

  144. Diane Baldwin - April 4, 2011

    Great book! I would love to have it to add to my collection.

  145. Heidi - April 4, 2011

    I like charms and fat quarters. Thank you so much for this opportunity.

  146. Beth - April 4, 2011

    Awesome book! I can always find a use for fat quarters!

  147. Linda Robertson - April 4, 2011

    My favorite size is the 5″ charm squares!! I can do so much with them.

  148. Denise - April 4, 2011

    I love 10″ squares!

  149. Kathy - April 4, 2011

    I love fat quarters- easy to use for charity quilts. This is a great book.

  150. Megan McKenzie - April 4, 2011

    I’m just a casual quilter and have never used anything but fat quarters — I’d live to branch out an try something new!

  151. Char - April 4, 2011

    I like charm packs. I think you get just enough of each fabric in the line. Usually I buy yardage of one print to go with the charm pack.

  152. Janetcc - April 4, 2011

    Fat Qtrs. Lots of optionss.

  153. Vicki S. - April 4, 2011

    I think charms packs are absolutely charming!!

  154. Janice - April 5, 2011

    Love charm packs and fat quarters – recently bought a layer cake and am excited to see what I can do with it!

  155. Gina - April 5, 2011

    I love charm squares and jelly rolls. My least favorite part of quilting is the cutting. This book looks like it would make for some fun projects.

  156. Pat - April 5, 2011

    My favorite is fat quarters. I love your fabric.

  157. Janice M - April 5, 2011

    Fat quarters have always been a favorite, but charm squares are just so cute and you can get a bigger variety of fabrics in one purchase.

  158. Dana - April 5, 2011

    My favorite pre-cut has to be charms, you can do a lot with them, they are the first I ever had and they are affordable. Thanks for the chance, that book looks like fun.

  159. Paula Pardue - April 5, 2011

    I am partial to fat quarters.

  160. Janet brown - April 5, 2011

    I like the 5″ I use a lot of them. They can also be used as 2.5″ that is my favorite.

  161. Vivian - April 5, 2011

    I think I really would like to be able to buy full yard cuts…but mostly settle for fat quarters or strips…would love to win this book as I have quite a few charms just waiting to be used!!

  162. Debi - April 5, 2011

    Love fat quarters….

  163. Sandy - April 5, 2011

    I have the “Canning Day” charms from CT that I’m using for a quilt right now. This is the first time I’ve used charms, usually go with full yards and cut them down. The book looks like a good one!

  164. Rachel Summy - April 5, 2011

    Love using the 5″ charms or cutting my own. Lots of fun projects for their use. Otherwise I usually buy yardage.

  165. Barb Schneider - April 5, 2011

    I love charm packs! I even cut up any leftover fabrics from a project into charms. I’m always looking for fun ways to use my charm stash.

  166. Virginia Morris - April 5, 2011

    I like both charms and fat quarters – charms are more affordable to add to stash – you know the one who dies with the most fabric wins! So far my mom has me beat in spades!

  167. Kat Martin - April 5, 2011

    Charms are my favorite precut to use. I love the fact that you can make a colorful quilt using everything in a collection. I’ve done this with several from Connecting Threads. I even talked my sister into making her valances using a base fabric and matching charm packs for a block trim. She is using you Canterbury collection. They are going to be beautiful.

  168. Myrna Leard - April 5, 2011

    I would love this book; I have lots of charm squares. It sounds like a really great book.

  169. Julie in WA - April 5, 2011

    My favorite is the fat quarter bundles, but they can be rather pricey. The layer cake is generally my choice for affordability and versatility.

  170. Jenni - April 5, 2011

    I’ve used fat quarters many many times, but I think I’d like to give the 10″ squares a go. I do love the co-ordinating charm packs.

  171. Mary White - April 5, 2011

    I’m having a lot of fun with the 2 1/2 inch strips right now…I’ve found lots of great patterns to use up my stash I recently purchased from Connecting Threads!

  172. Cheryl - April 5, 2011

    It’s a toss up between charms and fat quarters but I think that I will say charms. They have been a real time saver for me when I need to make up a small quick project for a birthday!

  173. Caryn Sakaguchi - April 5, 2011

    I’m torn between fat quarters, charm packs, and jelly rolls. They all have their own “charms” and usage. They definitely make projects easier and are great for last minute gifts.

  174. KaHolly - April 5, 2011

    I love charm packs the best. They are so versatile.

  175. Christian Chandler - April 5, 2011

    I adore charm packs, in fact I find them charming ;-) its one of the best ways to really get a chance to try an entire line of fabrics. And the book looks very enjoyable.

  176. Mary Riedel - April 5, 2011

    I enjoy using charm squares. You get a wonderful variety of blocks to work with.

  177. Carlie - April 5, 2011

    Great giveaway..I love the 5″ charm packs. This book looks ‘charming’!!

  178. Jennifer M. - April 5, 2011

    My new favorite pre-cut is the 10 inch square. But I love them all :-)And this book looks great!

  179. Cathy - April 5, 2011

    My favorite are jelly rolls, but this week I love layer cakes because I am making a Trees for Sale” quilt using a layer cake.

  180. Gayle L. - April 5, 2011

    OOOOOOH, I think this will be a fabulous bok to have access to daily. I have been on a lean toward Fat Quarters for some time with the occasional charm pack thrown in, but I am wanting to get my hands on a lot of jelly rolls and honey buns. I bought a book on jelly rolls and need to get buxy and make use of it.

  181. Pat V. - April 6, 2011

    Just now my favorite precuts are layer cakes, BUT…I have stacks of charm packs that I can’t figure out how to use. I need this book!

  182. Linda Brown - April 6, 2011

    Yes I love charm packs and quilts made from them would love to have the book as part of my collection.

  183. barbara blair - April 6, 2011

    I love wallhangings and throw sized quilts. I love to try out new patterns, but get bored doing them over and over in a full sized quilt. Charm packs are perfect for these sizes.

  184. Barbara - April 6, 2011

    I love the different color options for inspiration.

  185. Kay - April 6, 2011

    I love charm paks and then FQ. I have made several baby quilts with charm paks and the Lil Twister.

  186. Grapenut - April 6, 2011

    Definitely fat quarters, but I use all types. Fat quarters are great when I don’t have a particular pattern in mind and I find fabric I cant live without!

  187. Donna Sykes - April 6, 2011

    Fat quarters are my favorite pre-cut fabric form. Although, I am finding many uses for the charm packs. So, this giveaway is wonderful!!

  188. Michelle Kloeti - April 6, 2011

    I would love to try a quilt with charm packs. this would be a first for me. I love to learn new things. With the book to go along, who wouldn’t love it. !!

  189. Charnita - April 6, 2011

    Fat quarter and charm packs are my favorites. The book looks like great fun. Just being able to create something unique is a great pleasure :)

  190. Oneita - April 6, 2011

    Charms and jelly rolls are my favorites. This book would open doors to more fun. Late bloomer and having a ball with my new hobby!

  191. Beth B - April 6, 2011

    I like fat quaters.

  192. Sharon - April 6, 2011

    My fav precut are fat quarters – they can be used so many ways – I like to fussy cut – does that explain it?
    I have never tried to use other pre-cuts – so a win would expand my new quilting horizons :)

  193. Michelle - April 6, 2011

    I really couldn’t pick just 1 precut, I love Charms, fat 8ths, stacks, AND strips!

  194. Anita - April 6, 2011

    I like 1/2 yards.

  195. Marcia W. - April 6, 2011

    My favorite precut is fat quarters, with charms a close second. Really like Me and My Sister Designs – have been reading their fun blog for a while. Thanks for the giveaway! p.s. Will Sunny Day be released in quilting cotton too?

  196. Heidi - April 6, 2011

    I love the charm squares for craft projects / small quilts and home dec projects !

  197. Kathryn Evans - April 6, 2011

    Wonderful book! I love playing with charms, jelly rolls, and layered cakes but, my favorite are fat quarters. You can do so much with such a little bit.

  198. Julie Rush - April 6, 2011

    I love fat quarters. The book looks like one that would be great in my library.

  199. colorado13 - April 6, 2011

    I would love to win this book! One of my favorite things is seeing how different a quilt can look with different fabrics. And who doesn’t love charm packs!

  200. Jennifer Tomassetti - April 6, 2011

    I so enjoy quilting and love the look of this book. The quilt on the cover is so cute! Make me a winner!

  201. Jodi Stapleton - April 7, 2011
