I Love Presents!

It's Day Three so . . .

It's time for some PRESENTS. . .

I was thinking today that I would love some virtual presents from each of you. Nothing expensive just a sweet comment telling me what kind of virtual quilt related present you're bringing to the party and then you'll be entered for today's giveaway. Thanks for playing along. I look forward to seeing what you're going to give me (remember, we're pretending here).

I'm so excited! Can you tell??? Bring on the Presents!!! *smiling with excitement*

Here's what I'm giving away today.

I'm sooo Excited about this and I hope you just LOVE it!!!

Scroll down just a little more. . .

It's very special. . .

Ta Dah!

Do you Like it???

Hope so. . .





It's a sweet present for one of the lucky party goers. I was INSPIRED by the mini purse that I've blog about in the past (you'll see the tutorial on my sidebar) so, I designed a bigger mini purse (or gift bag) that holds a 5" Charm Pack with room for other things too. It's a great size for any little girl's birthday party or a sweet handmade gift for your quilty friends too!

The Bigger Bitty Bag is designed and made by me using Moda's new Patisserie Collection by Fig Tree & Co. I've included a 5" Charm pack of Joanna Figueroa's Patisserie Collection along with a handmade (by me) needlecase and tissue holder. You will also see a sweet treat that I've thrown in too.

P.S. You have 24 hours to post a comment and I will pick a winner tomorrow late afternoon.

Thanks for offering these terrific giveaways! To the party, I'd bring a slow cooker loaded with dinner, to simmer away while you sew - the perfect no-work supper, so you can sew all day.

Nuts To You! said...

If I had answered this earlier today, I would have given you both of my children, but now they are back to being sweet so I guess I'll keep them. That really wouldn't have been a nice gift:P

i'm going to go with what my son told me to do... i'd bring you some Oregon State Beaver fabric to make a lap quilt. (he's a huge OSU fan) And with that maybe a gift certificate from the Stitchin' Post in Sisters Oregon. (it's a regional famous quilt shop)

Nedra said...

I've never been to a virtual party before, but this sounds like fun. For my party gift I would bring you and all your friends some homemade applique glue that I just blogged about on my post tonight.
Everyone needs a party favor just for showing up.

Mary Jo

Anita said...

What great stuff, how can you bear to part with it?

Joyce said...

My present for you would be an "ironing wench". Just be nice to her.

Jess :) said...

My present for the party would be a big bowl of my Great Grandma's Pistachio Pudding! It's fantastic and I regret all the years I wouldn't eat it just "cause it's green!" So as a tribute to my lovely Nan, the little Irish lass she was, I would bring some green pudding!

shauna said...

My party gifts to you would be chocolate truffles and a gift certificate for a pedicure or a massage, your choice. Personally I recommnend the massage. Great for relaxing the shoulders after a hard day of sewing!

~D Spack~ said...

OK Kim, I'm kind of late in joining the fun, but please I'd love to be included! Besides, I'm bringing you a red, black and white Apron!!! and an Idaho Spud Bar! Yeah. Ooo and I do love Patisserie and all the great things you are giving away! Thanks so much, here's hoping from Idaho.

Okay, I would bring you a big, fat gift certificate for your favorite quilt store. :)

Thanks again for the party invite!

Kate said...

You are so sweet and generous, as are all your virtual friends! I would bring a stop watch, to allow you to slow down or stop time so you could finish up a WIP or new project that keeps getting pushed to the back burner, waiting for a quiet day to finish it up.

Joanna said...

I would bring you a personal chef and cleaning lady so that you could spend all your time quilting instead of cooking and cleaning! At least, that's what I would love :)

Your giveaway gifts today are just lovely and you are so generous to part with them!

Nancy said...

If I were to attend this little party, I would bring a few slices of the yummy chocolate cake I just made. Because we all need a little sugar to keep the creative juices flowing.

Nancy said...

PS. Thanks for the fun giveaway!

I can see a lot of RSVP's here.....I'll bring fat quaters of Indian fabric, with lots of Indian motifs...Love to see your work using Indian fabric.

Hi Kim-
Since I am a vintage kind of girl, I would bring you a featherwieght that has been custom painted RED just for you! Then I would probably bring my Hello Dollys and lemon squares in a really cute vintage pyrex dish, covered with an embroidered dishtowel.
I would bring my apron collection for everyone to wear and we would all get a group photo to remember the fun we had at your virtual party!!!
OMG that would be sooooo fun:)

Also in a secret pocket would be some New Zealand inspired materials with kiwis and other native flora and fauna. From Jeannette, Petone, New Zealand.

alda said...

my present for you is the little sheep pincushion on the wodden spools because a busy girl couldn't have enough of them, but take care it loves to watch you sewing. Another gifts: yummy chocolate cupcakes with caramel for the sewing break.

Nicole said...

I think I would bring a gift certificate for your favorite local quilt shop......you know for all the little extras that come up when making a quilt :) (My husband says they are impersonal, but gift cards happen to be my favorite gifts! LOL)

Suzie said...

I would bring a little quilt kit of tumblers for you to make. It would be fun to see how you chose to lay the quilt out with my fabrics.
I am always cutting little tumblers from leftover pieces of every piece of fabric I cut.

Marica said...

What a cute giveaway gift you girls will give one lucky winner..

Take care!

Kate/Massachusetts said...

Oh my, I am stunned at what you are giving away! For my virtual gift to you, because I am a knitter first and new to quilting, I would bring a hand-knitted shawl and "mitts" to your party to keep you warm and comfy when you are working at your sewing machine. My sewing room is pretty chilly in winter (I originally spelled winter as whiner...hmpf!) so I have knitted items to ward off the chill! What color do you want? vbg

FrancisMoore said...

I would bring one of my new pear pincushions. Lovely gifts.

Deb said...

Such a great giveaway. I would bring you six inch squares of my favorite black, red and white fabrics. Maybe some yellow ones to add some kick, and some really nice pins I found that are my favorite to use, to pin them together.

Cindy said...

Oh - Kim - you have outdone yourself yet again. What a darling collection you've made for your gift to a special winner.

I think I'm going to bring some red/white/black fabric with variegated thread wrapped up in a red/white FQ tied with a satin black ribbon.

Material Mary said...

Here is my virtual gift to you. I year's supply of thread and sewing needles to keep you sewing up a storm. Love your little bags and things. They are beautiful.
Mary

Vicki said...

Wow, what do you give the girl who has everything?! Since you love a good "eat" like me, I would have to bring my famous Chocolate Pound Cake to share with everyone. The gifts are beautiful...

Sox said...

I will bring you 29 spools of quilting thread in various colors and an applique block to use as a focus block in a quilt.

Sara said...

Ah, my gift to you....1 very skilled, on call 24-hour cleaner our rooms/massager of sore muscles (from all that time you'll be able to spend sewing)/tamer of chaos helper bee. Not only will she/he keep you tidy and your muscles relaxed, he/she will financially support your sewing addicition and run all necessary sewing errands.

I really love your little bags. They are on my short list of projects.

Susan said...

I'll be wrapping up what all quilters would love to have...a full time housekeeper, cook and gardener! That way you can stitch your days away with out being interrupted by cleaning, cooking and yard work!

Anne said...

Oh man, I am not worthy! This is so much fun. If I were coming over I'd bring food - because thats how I love people. Your giveaways are soo cute!

Tarmy said...

I'd have to send along a gift card to a great fabric shop (I'm new to quilting so you'd get to choose) and then the link to all their fabric online without prices so you'd get to choose whatever without thinking of the price. I think the gift card would have to be limited somewhere so you would have space for all the fabulous fabric and tools you'd buy. But wouldn't a great shopping spree be fun?!

Happy Blogaversary! I just started reading a month or so ago and you have some beautiful things on here!

Amanda said...

I love this party! I would bring you a batch of my homemade chocolate chip cookies, and an EZ Angle ruler for cutting half square triangles.

Nichole said...

I would bring you a batch of my famous Snicker-bar brownies. They are sooo good, and decadent enough to only warrant being made for special occasions. I would also bring you a cute springy apron along with a stack of never-seen before amazing black, white and red fat quarters all stacked up and tied with a big red bow! Happy day! Your prizes are SO CUTE! Thanks for the generosity.

sap5 said...

Well I have the gift wrapped, the cake and refreshments ordered and now just have to wait for the party to begin. Inside the gift is a genie lamp that will grant you 3 wishes, time in a bottle to use whenever you want, sunshine and laughter to brighten the day, and of course oodles of fabric in all kinds of yummy colors and flavors like layer cakes, honey bums, and jelly rolls. The invite list includes family and firends.
Happy Blog Anniversary.

My virtual gift to you would be a basket full of a variety of items. A special handmade pincushion, many different fat quarters of red, white and black since those are your favorite colors maybe some scrapbooking goodies, gotta have something with chocolate in it and a quilted table runner.

I just love your gifts, you are so talented and you have such lovely ideas!

Tracy said...

I would send to you a fun spring quilt I have just made. I took my salmon, yellow, and soft pink scraps and made a very scrappy quilt. I found some salmon fabric from Marcus Brothers on clearence for $2.00 a yard at our local fabric store. I used it for the border, back, and binding so for very little money I was able to make a cute quilt with all the fabrics I love. Thanks for letting me play.

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

I hope I'm not too late. This package of joy is so cute. Kim your work is so professional and perfect. I always love to see what you are making. These items are so pretty. Just so so pretty.

Ok my present for you - a quilting cruise! Wouldn't that be fun. Take our machines and go sail the ocean blue. I'm a little afraid of the deep sea like I'm afraid of the open air in a jet. But for a quilt group I'd work on my anxiety. After going to Bryce at the retreat. I can't think of anything (well mostly) more fun than friends, food and sewing.

Khris said...

Ohh boy what a fun party this would be. I would have to bring some Aussie designer books/patterns along to this retreat. Like Gail Pan, Lynette Anderson, Cinderberry Stithces. Hugs Khris in Oz

Lori Anderson Designs said...

Oh I missed it, but how lucky for someone! The work is GORGEOUS!
