Beautiful quilt (as per usual!!). I spent quite a bit of time last week staring at your quilt in Sydney at the Homespun stand. It (and the quilting) are simply amazing. Now how to convince the family I need to fly to Victoria somewhere and do one of your classes!!

Congratulations Ben! It looked like a fun birthday.

Wow, that quilt is more beautiful finished than I imagined it would be. You must have worked so hard on it to finish already amidst birthday parties and teaching classes! Thanks for sharing!

tempestpilot

You are mad to give that away! So you should give it away to me. You'd get to impress the postmaster with how cool you are when you mail it to Maui. ;)

Love your work, the detail is fantastical.

Lorraine

Wow.....too generous!! fab quilt......and I think if I won I could probably wait until November to have it come and live with me....! thanks for the pics of your workshops.....looking forward to catching up in October and learning some of your techniques....mastering them might be a little more challenging!

Claire - Matching Pegs

Kellie,

I was so sorry to miss the NOTYQ Guild meeting - it was Amelia's birthday, so I had a good excuse.

Life has been crazy - we bought and sold a house or two, but I hope we can catch up soon. The new house will have a dedicated sewing area - I can't wait!

It is clear you are going from strength to strength - congrats on all your latest patterns/designs - beautiful!

Kate

Awesome quilt, its stunning! I'd love to take it home with me... I could even be patient :-) Congrats on the big 100!

Andi

Happy Happy Birthday Ben!!!!!!!
Glad you had a fabulous birthday party!!

And Kellie .... you have outdone yourself. That new quilt is breathtaking.
If I don't win it, I just might cry. (Not really but it would be amazing to have it at my house).
Take care,
Andi :-)

Beatrice

I can't believe you are giving so wonderful quilt. I LOVE all your design and I can wait :).Thanks for the giveaway. Kiss from France

Lara

Happy birthday celebration to Ben! And congrats on the finished quilt - superb in every way - and on the class in Ballarat. I am desperate to do one of your classes! It will happen one day. I'm a little astounded that you are going to give that quilt away - you are SO generous Kellie! On a social level, hopefully we'll be able to catch up soon. Fingers crossed!

Jane Weston

What a stunner! I'm amazed you are willing to part with it...but as you are I'm quite happy to throw my name in the hat :o)

trashalou

I too did the happy dance up at the Festival of Quilts when I saw all your patterns.

Oh that Lilly Pilly is stunning. I shall just go and gaze some more once I have commented.

A belated but HUGE Happy Birthday Ben. That is an awesome cake.

Sandy

I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win your new beautiful quilt. Another colourful and wonderful quilt. (I have already made a query regarding one of your workshops for next year - would love to see your work up close!!).

Thanks for a great and (as everyone would agree) generous giveaway Kellie.

Another lovely, bright, cheerful quilt. I am about to make a cushion for my daughter's 7th birthday and have chosen one of yours as they always make me feel so happy. I would love to be entered into any of your competitions. I am happy to wait for the quilt. Keep the beautiful happy quilts coming.

Vicki

Wow, I would absolutely love to win your beautiful quilt. If I had created something so beautiful I don't think I would be able to part with it!!!! I am constantly amazed by how talented you are and follow your blog on google reader - can't wait to see what you come up with next.

Oh Kellie your work is so pretty and inspiring that i can't delay learning your technique and making my own DLN project any longer! I am off to buy a pattern! Congratulations on your success!
:)

Sharon L F

Ooohhh I just love this quilt...it is sooo incredibly gorgeous and cheerful looking. I will mention it on my blog and even though I have a couple of your patterns I haven't made them yet (little cringe)as I have been a little side-tracked with all of Liam's assessments (still ongoing). Still its his birthday tomorrow. Yeah...I'm excited LOL.
BTW as I will have to get this pattern, do you have any fabric advice:).
I don't know how you can give this away.
Hugs,
Sharon (Stitches on Mars)

How I would love to win your beautiful quilt! Iam so glad that word is spreading about your amazing work - you are very talented.

Bev

How very beautiful that quilt is, but how on earth can you give it away?? I just have to enter the draw, wouldn't it be gorgeous hanging in my bedroom on the big white wall. >sigh<

Bronwyn

Wow Kellie you are such a generous person to give away that beautiful quilt,'lily pily'.I have started collecting fabric for the "love birds" quilt in homespun. I have worked many jobs and saved hard to get a new machine so now I think I can challenge myself to 'have a go' at your applique. Your instructions read well, now all I have to do is put them to work.Thanks again for your generosity. Good luck to everyone.

Terry

Your quilt is fabulous! I would love to have it in my home! Thanks so much and congratulations! :0)
