Win a Wire Table Stand and Evergreen Header!

This contest is now closed.  Thank you to everyone who participated! 

It was my turn in the A Year in Stitches group to design a block, and my month is December. I designed a strippy Quilt-As-You-Go tree for my block, which brings together my love of Christmas trees and “quick & easy” (I know, those of you who know me are stunned it’s not a snowman!).

This mini quilt stand we’ve photographed it on is very handy for all the 12” quilt patterns I’ve seen popping up everywhere, including on our A Year in Stitches Group. I adore the little masterpieces we’ve been creating and I hate to put them away after their turn on the Calendar Keeper is over so this allows me another way to display them. Now I can display a block on my calendar and one on my stand. Too bad I can’t win this because I sure could use another one…

Enough about me, now on to the giveaway… If you would like to win a Wire Table Stand along with the Evergreen Header, simply leave a comment telling us what you would like to display on your stand should you win it. We will pick our lucky winner on November 7th and announce them shortly after.

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

    This is so cute. I would hang any one of my mini quilts that are seasonal on this. And I would leave it out year round!

    Great gift idea! There are two people on my list that would love a stand and a collection of seasonal mini-quilts to go with it. I want to give the stand and a couple quilts at Christmas and then give other quilts through the year. Thanks a bunch for the chance to win!

    I would hang one of the many minis I have made. I live in the timberland region of Arkansas so it would be a great stand to use year round in my home. I love that connecting threads have started to carry the wire hangers.

    I might use it to hang some ornaments on until I get a mini quilt made. Kathie L in Allentown

    I would display my patriotic Ohio Star block with the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima in the center block. (In honor of my father and my son, both military men.)

    I would love this little stand for my quilting friends at the Senior Center to display our mini quilts. We have wall hangers for large quilts, but nothing for our adorable small quilts

    I’d like to try to make the tree that you have in the stand. Perfect for where I live in the Adirondacks.

    I have some antique hand stitched blocks I would display..

  165. Corinne - November 5, 2011

    I would display my seasonal calendar quilt.

    I love the little wire hanger. I’d love to hang a quilted stocking from it.

  167. Janis T - November 6, 2011

    I’d like to put your tree on the stand! Then I’d get busy and make some charming minis to display.

    I hope I am not too late! I have been ill with the awful October crud! I have been looking at the table topper holders for a couple of weeks now and need to order them, unless I win this one, then one less to order. I would change out monthly or twice monthly with little projects here in my office, since I don’t have wall space! Please pick me!

    If I were lucky enough to win this cute little table stand I think it would be changed often. Maybe make several special occasioned mini quilts to put up as they roll around – birthdays, holidays, but maybe even daily positive quotes!

    I can see myself enjoying this little stand for several months. In Nov. it would have a little quilt with fall leaves; in Dec. it would hold Santa beside a tree; in Jan. it would have a snowman beside a snow covered tree. I can probably make a little quilt to hang on it for many times of the year.

    I would hang my miniature seasons quilts.
