Book Give Away! Stack the Deck Revisited by Karla Alexander

by
books, contests

This contest is officially closed!  Thank you to everyone who participated. You can find out who won by clicking here.

Even though I barely finished my gifts in time for the holidays I never stopped looking at new books and picking new projects for next year! We have two copies of Karla Alexander’s NEW book Stack the Deck Revisited that we are going to give away*. The book has 11 projects using her fun stack-slice-shuffle-and-sew method. The patterns from her original book have been updated. I love this technique because it is so easy to cut, and so fun and quick to sew together!  I love seeing how the blocks turn out as you go, and I can’t wait to get started making them. You could win a copy of this book by simply answering the following question by commenting below:


“How many sewn holiday projects did you complete this year?” 

The deadline to enter is Wednesday, December 29, 2010 by (11:59 pm PST). I will draw  two random winners on Thursday morning.

*Rules! Only one entry per person. Must have a U.S. shipping address. No purchase necessary.

    I made seven completed gifts before xmas and I have two to go, since I have not had a chance to get together with these two individuals as of yet.

    I didn’t finish as many projects for Christmas as I intended to, due to illness, but did manage 6 items. The Stack the Deck book sounds intriguing! Hope I can win it.

    Oh, I was bad, very bad. Didn’t get a single christmas gift finished. I had good intentions! Maybe I should start now for next year?

    Did not get any finished for Christmas, but have quite a few tops to quilt, som maybe that half counts as people could see them. Some how there is not enough time in the day for our favorite hobby!

    I did not finish one gift for Christmas this year I tried to finish a UFO of placemats for my GD but I am still sewing the binding on them. I will give them to her on Jan. 1. But they are still late.

    I made 8 sets of potholders, two potholders per set. I also made tea towels to go with the potholders, one towel per set. (Not sewn, but I also made homemade vanilla to go with the potholders and towels.) My husband got a quilt to wrap up in while he works on his computer in his basement office, it gets cold down there. And again not sewn, but I knit scarves for 5 family members. All of this was done in time to be shipped across the country in time for Christmas! :)

    I didn’t give any sewn gifts this year. Not even the pot holders for my mom… maybe for her birthday in June.

    Everything I started I finished! I do not expect a repeat of this historical happening next year. Purses, wallets, sewing machine covers, tool caddies, wallhangings, tabletoppers, placemats, camera straps, oven mitts~~ yep…finished it all! We cut out the cookie baking and shopping…everything was homemade~either sewn by myself or baked/made (bread…Irish Cream) by my husband. This was the most relaxing Christmas we have had in ages.

  12. Wendy Says:

    I finished all tbree – a tablerunner, handbag and baby quilt. Plus I ordered some of your batiks to start on a gift for next christmas. Would love to win the book.

  13. Karen Says:

    I made 12 Christmas tree napkins and two wallhangings.

  14. Kathy Says:

    I’m new to quilting so I did a Christmas wall hanging that I was going to give away but decided to keep for myself. I was really pleased with it. I see the mistakes but hope others don’t.

  15. Holli Says:
    12/27/2010 12:18 pm

    I finished 8 projects… but 5 of them were tiny little purses ? 1 quilt and 2 hooded towels.

    12/27/2010 12:19 pm

    I did four last minute gifts. Two of them were quilts and two were Christmas tote bags. The quilts got quilted and bound just days before Christmas. I just checked out your other book New Cuts for New Quilts from the local library and am putting it on my list of the many quilt books I want to get!

    Everything I make is hand stitched. I completed at least 1,500 pieces, mostly make-do pin cushions. Plus, this year I started quilting and I hand stitched 8 lap quilts and one baby quilt for gifts for family members. I would rather hand stitch than use a machine. To me, it’s more relaxing.

  19. Debra Symons Says:
    12/27/2010 12:28 pm

    I got one project finished for a new granddaughter, but I finished six quilts for my sister. Some were done from fabric purchase to finished product and some were just the final quilting. All-in-all I think I did well.

  20. Suzanne Says:
    12/27/2010 12:38 pm

    I finished one quilt — almost done with another (they have to go to England) and I completely finished 5 table runners that I gave as gifts. I have 3 more unfinished table runners that I wasn’t able to finish and I made a quilt top as a gift for a wedding in February — all I have to do is quilt if. Also made tons of cookies for gifts too!

  21. Judy LeVang Says:
    12/27/2010 12:38 pm

    I managed to finish a quilt, 3 outfits for little ones, a wallhanging, 17 cold/flu comfort rice bags, a pin cushion, and a vest. Whew, didn’t realize how much I did get finished until I started listing them!

  22. Regina Says:
    12/27/2010 12:40 pm

    I lost count – 2 quilts, 4 fabric baskets, 5 pillowcases, about 30 sachets, some key fobs, some covered notebooks…

    only 3 this year — a table runner and a couple of pin cushions (rough year with a lot of illness). But I’ve already got 1 quilt top finished for next Christmas, and another about 1/2 done.

  25. Carol Says:

    I started, and finished, 9 projects all in time which I’m sure will never happen again! 7 purses/bags, one laptop case and a roll-up holder for knitting needles and knitting accessories.

  27. Leslie Holly Says:
    12/27/2010 12:58 pm

    1. LOL But – I am completing all of the quilts my mom started or had bought the fabric for to give to the family. 1 is fully quilted, 6 are assembled and awaiting decisions for the backs by the family members and 2 are in process.
    Before I can work on these again, I have 4 others for a friend who’s daughter died, and am remaking a room into a sewing room to not disturb the others in the house while I work.

  28. Gayle Says:

    The queen of proctastination here and I got a whoppin’ one project done before Christmas but it was an unfinished from last year. I am sewing my little heart out in hopes of having the rest finished by New Year’s. It still counts if its the Holidays, right?

  36. Bea Says:
    12/27/2010 1:25 pm

    I’ve made lots of projects thruout the year, but specifically for christmas, I’ve made a set of table matts and a finger pot holder for a friend, about 10 stuffed owls and one owl pillow ( found a cute owl pincushion in a quilt magazine, I made them out of cotton. For once I didn’t make any large quilts for family, I’ve done at least one for parents, and close friends the last few years, but I also went back home this summer and brought quilts with me…..
    As for regular quilts for 2010 I made 35 ( If I counted right) Most are gifts or donations, one or two I’ve sold.

    After reading through all of the other comments, my answer sounds rather small, as I only made one sewn holiday project. However, I would still love to win a copy of Karla Alexander’s latest book.

  38. Pat B. Says:

    I finished 7 projects including a mattress, pillow and quilt for a doll, placemats and tote bags.

  39. Susan Kirk Says:
    12/27/2010 1:30 pm

    I made 8 table runners, 3 lap quilts, one fleece shawl and 10 wall hangings and 2 fleece hats. My daughter’s lap quilt still has 2 1/2 sides to hand sew the binding, it was the only thing I didn’t quite finish. I am soooo glad it is over, now I can work on something other than Christmas fabric. I did enjoy watching the recipients open their gifts….everyone loved what I made them!!! It is fun to make gifts for my friends and family, but I am thinking I will start earlier than October next year!

  40. Wendy Says:
    12/27/2010 1:35 pm

    No quilting projects finished. Had to give my sister the top without the borders on it with a note that it will be completed and delivered in a couple of weeks. She loved it anyway. :)

  41. Linda Bodkin Says:
    12/27/2010 1:38 pm

    I finished 2 dresses and 4 pair of pyjamas for the grand-daughters and great-niece and -nephew. I’d rather sew tahn purchase gifts for the little ones(2 1/2 to 6 1/2), at least while they’re young.

  42. Linda Froggie Quilter Says:
    12/27/2010 1:42 pm

I completed Flowers of the Sun quilt for my Mother for Christmas. I made a lilac kaleidoscope quilt, but I only have the top pieced. I also finished a camping quilt with embroidered blocks depicting camping scenes. I just started my newest quilt from another kit purchased from CT, called Chubby Chirps. Love this fabric!!

  70. Dee Says:
    12/27/2010 5:10 pm

    I didn’t make a single Christmas gift this year. After years and years of staying up late Christmas Eve trying to finish them, I gave myself a break this year. And I’m glad I did. I was much less stressed this Christmas.

  71. Janice Says:
    12/27/2010 5:19 pm

    I made three gifts that I gave and one item for myself. I made a baby quilt that I sold for a gift. I also helped my 18 year old daughter with her very first quilting/sewing project that is for a friend.

  72. lisa Says:
    12/27/2010 5:22 pm

    I gave three quilts…one finished, one that needs binding, and one thats just a top (last minute decision to try and give it as a gift, I was shocked when the top was finished in time to wrap, I need to go buy backing and batting for it and the budget wouldnt let me do that right away.) and I made a tree skirt with scraps. I love it! (so the answer is three gifts one decration…if you can call those two “finished”)

  73. Paula Says:
    12/27/2010 6:21 pm

    Holiday projects, let’s see…several 12 1/2″ blocks for “The Ladies” group I am in – 5 different 4th of July patriotic blocks, 5 Fall blocks and 6 Christmas blocks (blocks with large appliqued ornaments). The rest of the year I sewed quilts. The blocks in the Stack the Deck revised look fun and colorful. I would love to win this book!

    12 projects completed–hand embroidered tea towel, fleece throw with binding, two purses, and 8 ornaments (two were hand embroidered, others embellished–wow, what fun I had at the buttons posted on the Notions board).

    Hey Judy, I did 8 projects that were Fall/Thanksgiving and I completed and gave 12 quiltsof the wallhanging/lap/bed sizes and I also completed and gave about 20 applique/embroidery post cards or ornaments as gifts for the grandies teachers and others. I am not bragging (yes I am) but I was a busy girl. With my DH being more or less home bound, I have lots of sewing time and plenty of stash.
    I hope I can win the book you are giving since I think that is the pattern that I lost and I need it to finish my UFO>

    12/28/2010 7:56 am

    I didn’t complete any, but didn’t intend to. I am completely focused on projects for a new little bundle of joy who will bless our family in March 2011 (at least that is the plan!) Next year, I’ll focus on making Christmas gifts for others, but right now this little granddaughter we will soon get to meet is getting all my attention.

    wow , I am so glad to have found this site for the free giveaway. I am looking forward to this book and hoping to be a winner. I have seen the cover and it is so inspirational. I have finished all of the great Christmas chores and have a new craft room that is finally a place to call my own. I have several quilts in progress and lots of fantastic ideas. I would really put this book to of great use. Quilting is so additive . I know its the fabric. Color is highly contagious.!!!!

    I did finish one knitted and one sewn gift for Christmas. That was all I planned! Off over holidays so I am sewing and finishing. Stress free Christmas as I was done and wrapped early. No all nighter for me!

    I gave away about 20 FSL ornaments. I tried to make quilt blocks for a blockswap but my machine broke down and was unable to finish them. Getting the ornaments done was a nightmare because the machine was messing up all the tme. It is now in the shop again. Hopefully it will be fixed this time. Has been in for the same problem several times and comes home doing the same thing. My daughter is actually trying to get it declared a lemon.
    Blessings

    I hand embroidered 12 kitchen towels and made 24 potholders to match them…plus…I made, cut, baked and decorated 10 dozen Christmas sugar cookies with 6 of my beautiful grandkids!

    I made 3 chenille scarves for granddaughters, 2 double fleece blankets for granddaughters, Drunkard’s Path placemats for a special sister-in-law and helped make and quilt 25 lap quilts for our two local kidney dialysis centers in the last year. And I have loved each and every moment of doing these things! Love, love, love Connecting Threads and their products and service.

    I made 8 quilts (started in August) for Christmas and I am happy to say all but one were done before Christmas. 4 were twin size, and the others were just crib sized quilts The last one is being quilted this weekend. Also made pot holders, and a scarf for a friend who had a birthday early in December.

    I participated in a Christmas QAL so I finished four projects doing that, then I made eight pillow cases for the kids in my family, and inumberable (about 11 or 12) mug rugs. I have a quilt top I have not quilted and finished. It’s more than I thought I would do.

    I have completed 1 queen size quilt, plus several smaller gifts as well as 50 pillowcases that were given away to a local charity.

    I got several small projects finished, a total of 7. Hoping to do better this year by getting started earlier. I hope to do more sewing for ministry this year and just not stuff I do for the family. They always seem to grab everything up. But that’s okay, I really enjoy making gifts for everyone.

    Did a total of 7 gifts this year. All small things like potholders and ornaments this year.

    I finished 2 projects this year. Had plans to do more, but came down with shingles! Couldn’t even sit at my machine. Looking forward to 2011 and doing something “new and different”. This book could be just the thing to inspire me! Happy New Year to all.

    With a brand new grandbaby, I neglected to complete any projects for Christmas, other than a baby quilt and several small receiving blankets. My New Year’s resolution is to finish at least five of the quilting projects already in the works. I would love to win the book – it sounds like fun waiting to start.

    Unfortunately, I didn’t complete my new grandsons quilt :( However, I got a new sewing machine for Christmas and have several projects I would love to get started; after I finish my grandson’s quilt of course :) I would LOVE to win this book to add to my collection!!

    I finally finished a queen size quilt that had sadly been waiting for the quilting of borders for over a year. Also, some table runners were finally completed. Yeah.

  107. Marlene Says:

    Two gifts completed. Everyone else got pictures of what theirs will look like when I get done.

  108. Anita Says:

    Not as many as I wanted to. I just made a small runner for an exchange gift with a quilt group and 4 paper pieced ornaments.

    I made only 4 gifts this Christmas because of a lot of sewing in Oct. for our 5 great-grandkids who were part of our 50th wedding celebration; and also, a lot of sewing in Nov. for the Cancer Foundation for their fund-raiser. I only got 3 towels and a baby quilt finished. Maybe next year.

    Unless I have lost count, I believe 24 projects were completed. Now I am gathering my Fall & Winter fabrics into possible projects for 2011 with lots of ideas seen on web sites and in magazines. My summers are usually spent on Fall/Winter projects so you could say I have reversed my seasons….Ha!
    I would love to receive one of your books for future use.
    Thanks so much.

    I made placemat sets for 10 family and friends, some of them were only two placemats and the others were a set of four. I also made several table toppers and can be turned over and used during a different season. I think there were about 10-15 of them. No large or lap sized quilts, still working on them………….
    If I do half as well next year, it will be a wonder!!
    The book that you have mentioned looks very interesting and I would love to have it!!
    Thanks to you all for being a wonderful site and a great group of ladies!! Happy New Year!!

How many projects did I start – hmmm! 4, still to finsish from other years (2008) hmmmmm! 3 – ooops I have work to do. This is a great site to inspire me though. Thank you team.

    I made three Christmas pillow cases, finished putting binding on a quilt and my 13 year daughter made a simple but very cute blanket for my grandaughters doll. My daughter also worked on designing fabric for me to put into a quilt. This next year I plan on putting aside one day a month devoted to quilting. I love it.
    Thank you

    I made a pair of pillowcases. But I have a really good excuse for not finishing any other projects. We completed building our new house and I was painting, tiling floors, and putting in hardwood floors. Does that count, we moved in the week before Christmas.

    I didn’t get any gifts finished. :-( My daughter got sick, then I got sick then my son, then my husband. But I love quilting books. Thanks for the opportunity for a free goodie.

    3 completed Halloween wall hangings for my 3 grandsons with patterns and material scattered all around for their Christmas wall hangings. Too many plans and not enough hours for working and quilting. But my good intentions are there.
