Rag it up Quilts ~ QCR Giveaway!

Giveaway is over, thanks!

Have I ever mentioned how lucky I am to have such talented sisters....In the family we all agree that my sister Sherilyn is most artistic!!  She's recently started a new blog and business called Rag it up Quilts!

Sherilyn is the Queen of making these unique one of a kind Rag Quilts and is in the process of writing up patterns for them!  I'm so excited for her!  

Here are a few of her quilts:







I was lucky to get a unique....just for me rag quilt last year and I love it so much!  It's my favorite snuggle up blanket!

...so my sister doesn't know I'm doing this but I'm want to send some traffic her way so you all can see her fun and unique creativity! 

...and of course I would love to do a Giveaway!  It's been a while since I've had a Quick Curve Ruler and Pattern giveaway.

   Remember Urban Tiles and Urban Winter will be ready here in the next couple of weeks! 

To enter the giveaway all you need to do is go to Sherilyn's Blog, Rag it up Quilts and become her newest follower.  Come back here and leave a comment telling me so.  

If you all ready own a QCR I would love to send one to maybe one of your quilting friends... brother... sister... mom...dad...I'm sure you could think of someone!  ;o)

The Giveaway will go through the weekend!

Thanks!!

~Jenny~

You have a very talented family! My sister and I have been trying to follow in our Mom's footsteps or should I say quiltsteps. I have your ruler, and would love for my sis to get one too.
My best to you and your wonderful family.

I've made a couple rag quilts! The last one I made was a Turning Twenty pattern. I loaded a big old piece of fleece onto my longarm and then quilted the fat quarters to it. When I took it off a cut it apart again to have quilted fat quarters and then cut my fabric according to the pattern and sewed it all together! Saved SOOOOO much time not have to cut 2 or 3 layers of fabrics, sew THEM together and then start piecing. I will like looking at her blog, thanks for the link :)

I'm a new follower of Rag-It-Up Quilts. I've never made a rag quilt, no experience to share. The Charlie Brown quilt you sample is so adorable, is it a pattern?

Crickets Corner said...

Are there any more talented sisters waiting in the wings? Love Sherilyn's flower quilt and the stockings are adorable. I'm her newest follower and am looking forward to seeing more of her creations. I have the QCR and love it but am sure my sister would like one of her own instead of borrowing mine all the time.

I just found your blog via pinterest. I love the curves! They create a feeling of movement and flow. I made a quilt many years ago with curved pieces. I'm sure it would have gone smoother with your ruler. Love the rag quilts on your sister's blog. Your homes must be so warm with all those beautiful quilts!

I'm now a follower :) Love her rag quilts. I bought one about 5-6 years ago when my son was still in diapers (also before I started quilting) he still loves it but it's now a bit to small! Looking forward to trying to make one with her pattern when she gets them out!

Rainy said...

I enjoyed the Rag it up blog. I am not normally attracted to rag quilts, but there is a control or delicacy in her work that is admirable and attention drawing. Her little characters are adorable. Especially the idea of the cute fellows on the stockings!

VickiT said...

Oh my gosh! Her quilts are beautiful. I especially like the very first one you posted with the flowers. That one is awesome and one I'd love to make for my Granddaughter. In fact, I just bought a bunch of gingham fabrics to use on something for her but I wasn't sure what yet. This might be it. I am following her blog with GFC and also via email.

I would love to win your ruler. I do not own one yet. Thank you.
