Win a Kit to Make Your Own Handmade Quilt Art

5 Dec 2013

I love to make quilts as gifts. It's my way of saying "I love you" and I know how much they mean to the person I give them to.

Black and White Cross Quilt and Chevron
Pillow from Modern Patchwork 2014.

Truth is, though, sometimes I'm a bit strapped for time. Often I don't have the time for the shopping, cutting, and pattern selection.  It's an age-old problem but what's a quilter to do?

We at Quilting Arts have just the thing -- a kit for a dramatic modern quilt!

The Black and White Cross Quilt and Chevron Pillow Kits come with pre-cut Kona cotton fabric squares, patterns, and complete instructions for making these projects featured on the cover of Modern Patchwork Winter 2014. You can purchase these kits while supplies last.

But for one lucky quilter, we'll give away the fabric squares and a copy of Modern Patchwork with the pattern and directions.

Just leave a comment below: tell me why you would want to make one of these projects. I'll pick a winner on Monday, December 9.

So leave your comment below, in black and white!

Kristine

Black and White is so classic and reminds me of my mom who was so classy. She was a 60's fashionista with her white gloves spiked high heels matching earrings and necklaces and tailored dresses.

Black and white are so stunning together.  I've always wanted to make a black and white quilt, but haven't yet.  But Ddalaup should probably win this because it reminds her of her mom .....

Pretty awesome quilt and pillow. I would love to win.  I think they'd be a good challenge -- no room to fudge the matched points when the contrast is so high -- I've gotten lazy with my blendy fabric choices that cover a multitude of matching sins and wonkiness.

Hi Kristine!

Thanks for this chance to win the directions and materials to make a new quilt!

I am a beginning quilter so I don't have the "stash" aquired that most quilters have.  I am truly enjoying "the process" and the products from my endeavors but find myself a bit stumped by "cash flow" for materials and sometimes even some of the patterns that I would like to make.

I gravitate to more bold patterns and colors so your kit really appeals to me and secondly I think I could handle the pattern!! :)  My home decor is ecclectic leaning to modern so these would fit in just about anywhere.

I really appreciate all the helpful information that I can glean from Quilting Arts Magazine and the e-newsletters!  Thank you so much for all your hard work and thanks for the chance to win this kit!

i would just simply love to win the quilt and pillow. these two appeal to me because of what they represent to me. the black crosses on white are like us on Christ, with Him we are totally surrounded with holiness & love. the pillow is somewhat the same - we the black lines, our lives are so up and down, but Christ is there to hold us up & support us no matter which direction we are choosing to go.  both are beautiful in their simplicity & honesty of design.

I like a lot of the modern quilts now but it took me a while to warm up to them. Chevron patterns seem to really be "in" right now. Since my daughter is much more modern that I am, I would make the pillow for her and her husband who, incidentally, paints very modern pieces .

Dear Kristine,

First of all let me say, stunning in it's simplicity! Am currently 'trying out' quilts with little to no color; i.e. black & white (perhaps do a periodic table of elements for my chemist son?). The quilt on my sewing room floor is titled, "What is black & white & red/read all over?" featuring b/w fabrics with text. Machine quilted in red thread. I chuckle that this is one of the first jokes I ever told, at about 6 years old, and kids today may not even get it?!

Anyway, thanks for sharing.

I love this quilt. It reminds me that I need to keep a positive attitude. I was laid off as a social worker at Hospice in January 2012. It was the job of my dreams. When we moved to a new building in 2007, I made a quilt to hang in the foyer. It represented the cycle of life. Since being laid off I have been trying to make a career for myself sewing. I have taught classes and put some work on Etsy. Recently I've been approached about making a quilt, some tshirt throws, and my most exciting request is 2 baptism gowns from a wedding dress. I have tried to keep a positive attitude these last 2 years and finally there is a little flurry of requests that may be leading to more work. I would love to mark this potential turn of fortune by making this quilt to hang on the wall of my studio!!

Ever had a friend who is hard to buy for?  I have one whose favourite theme song is "good 'ole  Collingwood forever", and her team's colours are black & white.  This kit would be ideal and unique, as it would mean I could make her a gift rather than as usual buying one.  Most other patterns available always include another colour to create a focal point, where as these let the focal point be the beauty of the stark contrast between black and white, whilst  implying movement with the zig-zag effect in both.  Thanks for the ideas and inspiration, I look forward to make them for her.

Well, they both are beautiful. Th is the addition of red. That said, I love, love, love, the chevron design on the pillow.  I am expecting my first grandchild and have read that the first things that a baby is attracted to are the colors and shapes of black and white.  The next color  they are attracted to is thee addition of red.  This is said to stimulate the brain in some way.  Wouldn't this pattern be fantastic for this?  I can hardly wait?  I am crossing my fingers.

I have a "stash" of fabrics I love.  I loved them when I bought them but with no project in mind.  When I select a pattern for my quilt project, I never seem to have the right fabrics, therefore, I buy more.....Just the fabrics for that quilt and design.

With a kit (what a novel idea!), I would be ready to roll.  The right amount of fabric and the right colors make starting easy.  

I hope I win.   What great prizes: the magazine, the pattern and the fabric!

I am a basic black and white person. No gray areas for me, please.  I love the starkness and the contrast. Lots of symbolism, I like it!

Thank you. Linda

The black and white cross quilt is lovely.  I appreciate both the simplicity of design and the strong visual effect achieved in this stunning arrangement.  I would like to make this quilt for my 36 year old daughter who recently lost her husband to brain cancer.  Three months ago she moved with her six children to a new house and many of her walls are bare.  With so much emptiness in her heart and home, I would like to fill some of that space with this gift of love.

Chevrons are so popular now, because they make such a statement. Love the jazziness of that pillow. Black and white stand the test of time. Proof of this: My daughter was married 20 years ago and chose the very edgy (at that time) black and white, with red accents, as her wedding color scheme. Two decades later, that clean combo is going strong.

How apt to offer something in black and white in the week of Nelson Mandela's death.

I have been a traditional quilter all my "quilting life" but would love to make some of the quilts I see in modern quilt books and blogs-love the use of traditional patterns with a new twist.   Guess I just love quilting!!

My 26 yr old daughter is setting up house and actually loves my quilt work, she's modern and this pattern is perfect for her new living room.  I usually don't use patterns or kits at all but this would be fast and right. She has to wait too long for me to create something new!

I would love to win this quilt just for the pure joy of learning a new to me technique of piecing the top.

Like the others, I'd love a kit  and this is a good one for me to practice skills - black and white piecing would be pretty unforgiving.  

I have a new machine I have NEVER used.  I need a project!  

But looking at all the entries, we are much the same - have special needs and loves.  You must have a TOUGH CHOICE.  So to help I am recommending:

........following the chevron path

I don't know this person, but her poetic presentation is creative.  She must be a good quilter.

I love black and white and the graphic quality of this kit.  I will make it for the wall as I have dogs and they sit on my quilts.  But it is stunning and almost reminds of something Native Americans would make and use.

 I am a fairly new quilter and I have decided to try new patterns and ideas in a pillow size.  This black and white chevron pillow is very dramatic!  It would look stylish and modern anywhere, and once I figure out how to make them, I can make the chevron design in many colors.

It'a great to see quilting change through the years.  Each generation putting their own spin on what makes them love the age old art of sewing scraps of fabric together to bring fun into their homes.. Ultimately quilting stays alive to be passed on to the next generation.

Black and white are a classic combination; opposites that pair so well together. Together they show off clean lines and can accent any room.

on 8 Dec 2013 3:50 PM

So simple yet so stunning! My house is full of color, but I regularly use black and white prints to offset the colorful ones. The result is so much fun!

I'd love to make something like this to hang on the wall and POP through all the color. :)

Not Able To Make Decisions!  It would be wonderful to win this kit.  I would like to make a project for my family but when I go into the fabric shops, my heart races and I almost pass out from over stimulation.  Love those fabrics.  A pattern and fabric that is already selected could help me get over my sewing block (play on words???).  Feel free to address this beautiful piece to my address and I will have FUN finishing it.

The Black & White Cross Quilt and Chevron Pillow kit would be the perfect addition to the black & white stamped Adinkra symbols roll pillow and mud cloth pillows I have made to decorate my son's bedroom and inspire him to develop virtuious qualities in his character. Adinkra is a type of cloth made by the Ashanti people of Ghana. It is made with a thick commercial cloth and a thick black homemade dye. I created my stamps from cut leather afixed to cedar blocks. The stamp patterns have names and refer to Ashanti proverbs.

I incorporated the traditional Ashanti symbol of hope,  symbol of power and wisdom, symbol for human relationships, symbol for the soul and the symbol for the proverb "you can always undo your mistakes" in my repeat pattern design. I would love to expand the inspirational display for my son by making the cross quilt and chevron patterned pillow. These symbols are also used in Ashanti designs. Thank you for inspiring me to make a black and white quilt in addition.

I have learned the basics of quilting and currently using it to complete a basic blocks quilt.  I have limited time to work on quilts and I would love to try out a kit like this for gift giving.  The black and white patterns are so universal that this would fit with anyone's decor.

Black and White takes me back to the Golden era of movie stars and fashion. It makes such a simple but oh so bold statement. Color is great but I don't need it if I am classical black and white. If that weren't the case why do we still have upscale and uber trndy parties that are "black & White" only? Maybe a touch of a little sparkle in the form of some diamond look faceted jewels in just the right spot to really set this project off in style!

We'll done Kristine, both projects are amazing and have beautiful quality! I am drawn to the quilt, it's a quilt that should be made and displayed in a place of honor, preserved and protected.

What quilter wouldn't love the opportunity to have these projects to make?  And already ready to sit down and sew! I love that!

Today's modern quilts are the heirloom artwork of tomorrow.

This a pattern that would work for both my mum and dad, as its  not too girly (which is what my father tends to think of most quilts).  I would love to be able to make one they would both enjoy, specially as they both have a weakness for anything done by their children
