Book and Charm Pack Giveaway – 3 Times the Charm

books, contests, fun, news

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.

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

    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.

    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!

    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 Says:

    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 Says:

    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 Says:

    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.

    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 Says:

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 8:41 am

    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 Says:

    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 :-)

  22. Kyla Olson Says:
    04/04/2011 10:43 am

    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!!

  26. Becky Weimer Says:
    04/04/2011 10:45 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 10:46 am

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

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

  31. JanisT Says:
    04/04/2011 10:54 am

    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 Says:

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

  34. Kristi Says:
    04/04/2011 10:55 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 10:56 am

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

  36. Amy Louttit Says:
    04/04/2011 10:59 am

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

  37. Marla Says:
    04/04/2011 11:01 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:02 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:03 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:03 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:04 am

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

  42. Carol Says:
    04/04/2011 11:05 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:05 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:08 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:10 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:12 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:15 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:16 am

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

  49. Carie Shinn Says:
    04/04/2011 11:16 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:23 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:23 am

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

  52. Jessica Says:

  53. Wendy Paull Says:
    04/04/2011 11:24 am

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 11:28 am

  59. karen S Says:

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

  60. Kathy Raabe Says:
    04/04/2011 11:54 am

    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.

  63. Betty HH Says:
    04/04/2011 12:09 pm

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 12:12 pm

    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 Says:

  66. Michele Says:
    04/04/2011 12:22 pm

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 12:23 pm

    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 Says:

  69. rayna Says:
    04/04/2011 12:29 pm

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 12:31 pm

  76. jane g Says:

  77. Carol Patterson Says:

    My favorite size of precuts are 5 inch charms.

  78. Shelley Serby Says:
    04/04/2011 12:50 pm

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 12:58 pm

    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 Says:

  81. Julie Edmonds Says:
    04/04/2011 1:09 pm

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

  82. Kris Says:
    04/04/2011 1:10 pm

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

  83. Melissa Troutman Says:
    04/04/2011 1:12 pm

    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.)

  88. Cindy Saffell Says:
    04/04/2011 1:49 pm

    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.

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 1:58 pm

    04/04/2011 2:02 pm

    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.

  99. Connie White Says:
    04/04/2011 2:17 pm

    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!

    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 :)

    04/04/2011 3:00 pm

    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 Says:

    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!

    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

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 3:28 pm

    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 Says:

    I would say right now charm packs are my favorite!

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

  119. leah Says:
    04/04/2011 4:01 pm

    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 Says:

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

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 4:21 pm

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

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 4:30 pm

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 4:42 pm

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 4:51 pm

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 4:52 pm

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 4:57 pm

    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.

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

  131. Angel Duncan Says:
    04/04/2011 5:00 pm

    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 Says:
    04/04/2011 5:02 pm

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

    04/04/2011 5:09 pm

  136. Tennye Says:
    04/04/2011 5:53 pm

    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 Says:

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

  140. Judi Says:
    04/04/2011 6:29 pm

    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 Says:

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

  143. Regina Says:
    04/04/2011 7:12 pm

    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 Says:

  151. Char Says:
    04/04/2011 8:30 pm

    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 Says:

    Fat Qtrs. Lots of optionss.

  156. Pat Says:

    My favorite is fat quarters. I love your fabric.

  157. Janice M Says:
    04/05/2011 5:32 am

    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 Says:
    04/05/2011 6:37 am

    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 Says:
    04/05/2011 6:38 am

    I am partial to fat quarters.

  160. Janet brown Says:
    04/05/2011 7:18 am

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

  161. Vivian Says:
    04/05/2011 7:42 am

    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 Says:

    04/05/2011 8:53 am

    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 Says:
    04/05/2011 8:55 am

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

  165. Barb Schneider Says:
    04/05/2011 8:56 am

    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 Says:
    04/05/2011 9:16 am

    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 Says:
    04/05/2011 10:11 am

    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 Says:

  169. Julie in WA Says:
    04/05/2011 10:14 am

    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 Says:
    04/05/2011 10:17 am

    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 Says:
    04/05/2011 10:18 am

    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 Says:
    04/05/2011 11:46 am

    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 Says:
    04/05/2011 12:30 pm

    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 Says:
    04/05/2011 12:58 pm

  180. Gayle L. Says:
    04/05/2011 10:16 pm

    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. Says:
    04/06/2011 12:09 am

  182. Linda Brown Says:

    04/06/2011 4:47 am

    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 Says:
    04/06/2011 5:03 am

  185. Kay Says:

  186. Grapenut Says:
    04/06/2011 5:37 am

    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 Says:
    04/06/2011 6:26 am

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

    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 Says:
    04/06/2011 2:10 pm

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