Passacaglia Give-A-Way!

You could win a fabulous prize of fabric!  In celebration of Tilde’s fantastic Passacaglia Table Runner Pattern (free, see previous entry), and in celebration of Christmas and the New Year, Tilde and I are collaborating on a Give Away. (Monkey calls it a Give-A-Way, not a Give Away, because Inklingo is a simpler new way to quilt.)

Prize Fabric “Stained Glass”

The Prize!
Win 0.75 yards of the two fabrics Tilde used to make her blocks. It is more than enough for 4 blocks for a gorgeous Passacaglia Table Runner, even with fussy cutting, à la Lucy Boston. How cool is that?

The fabrics are Stained Glass and Gothic Arch from the Mezzanine collection from Michael Miller. (No affiliation)

Christmas Eve to Little Christmas
It starts today, Christmas Eve. This is the traditional day for gifts and Christmas dinner in my family and in Tilde’s. You can enter any time up until January 6th, which is Little Christmas (Ireland), Three Kings (Russia), or  Epiphany (Finland, Italy, Puerto Rico, Greece, Italy, Spain, Sweden, etc.). It seems appropriate to mention all of these because Inklingo has spread worldwide thanks to the Internet.

Prize Fabric “Gothic Arch”

Enter to win for up to three chances!
1. First chance: Leave a comment here on this post.
2. Second chance: Leave a comment on Tilde’s Blog entry.
3. Third chance: Add the button for the Inklingo Projects Blog  on your blog and write about the Give-A-Way. Please be sure to include the link to Tilde’s FREE Passacaglia Table Runner Pattern  in your message. It is

Of course, Tilde and I must have a way to reach the winners, so be sure to give contact info. We do not share this info with anyone.

There are two huge, tall men (virtual giants, not elves) banging around in the basement this morning, installing the new furnace parts. Hooray! They are very nice guys and we feel lucky that we will have proper heat for Christmas.  They seem to be good friends, and we have heard laughter several times, so we think things are going well. Either that, or they think it is hilarious to see so much fabric on the tables down there. (Most of my stash migrated downstairs this year.)

We wish you a Merry Christmas!

Linda & Monkey

  3. Linda ~ thanks so much for the pattern. I have been admiring Tilde’s blocks all along. I finally had time to dounload the pattern yesterday. I can’t believe they all came from two fabrics. I really appreciate all that you do.

  4. Thankyou so much for the wonderful story. Just love the pattern and have downloaded the runner. I would love an opportunity to win the fabric. The fussy cutting adds another layer and texture to create a magic about the pattern. It is wonderful.
    Happy New Year

  5. I have downloaded Tilde’s table runner pattern to go along with the 4.5 inch LeMoyne Star download. I love the fabrics she used. Also love the POTC Inklingo that I have and the Lucy Boston book. Thanks for a chance to enter the drawing.

  6. what a beautiful pattern, but I think all Tildes patterns and ideas are wonderful. here’s wishing you all a merry christmas and a happy new year.

    BEST WISHES FOR 2010 AND MAY YOUR FABRIC STASH BE FULL OF WONDERFUL PRINTS. (we have no fabric store in our town at the present time–boo hoo so my stash is getting a good going over) it’s amazing how you can use up fabric you already have when you can obtain no more.

  7. What a beautiful Christmas gift from Linda and Tilde. Guess what I am using for gifts next Christmas.

    Hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas. We are alone this holiday as the weather is not letting us out of the house.

    Blessings to all.

  8. What a sweet Way to Give, thank you!

    Those workmen are obviously laughing because with all that fabric, why would you need a working furnace to stay warm?

    Merry Christmas to all.

  9. Would love to put this on my blog, but not sure how to go about it – I will try to work it out again in the morning if I can. Love the Passacagalia blocks and the table runner is a real winner. Thanks to both Linda and Tilde, and I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Christmas where ever you are in the world

  21. Many thanks for this pattern. I downloaded immediately and then began wondering about how many I could make as Christmas Gifts for next year.

  22. These are gorgeous! Please count me in. I wish I had a blog so I could post about it and enter there, too, but I’ll sure let my friends know. On to Tilde’s next! Thanks for the opportunity.

  23. OH WOW!!! How can I resist such beautiful temptation :))
    I have done all three, commented on Tilde’s blog, wrote about it on my blog and added button. Now to cross everything :))
    I hope you’re heating is fix soon, stay warm and hope both you and Russ get well soon. Merry Christmas, hugs Elly

  24. A Contest with Inklingo and Fabric. How delicious and to have the colors already pick out would help me tremendously. I tend to select only primary colors and know that all the quilts in the universe are not made of ROY G. BIV colors. It sure is hard to type with crossed fingers. maybe Monkey can help me win…..Please Monkey put in a good word for me……please.

  25. I have put your button on my blog and I’ve also posted about your absolutely project. The Inklingo is linked to your blog and the pattern is linked to Tilde’s blog. Thank you so much for your generousity….I’m sure everyone will love your work.
