Stencil Winners!

Long winter shadows on free motion quilted stencil

Thank you to all of you who entered our latest giveaway sponsored by The Inbox Jaunt and The Stencil Company.  In order to qualify, you had to tell us how many UFOs you currently own.  I’ve tallied the number and including my own –(I have 26 UFOs)–followers of The Inbox Jaunt have 172,459 UFOs!

(Just kidding, I lost track after 1000.)  It is safe to say…we have accumulated a lot of unfinished projects…But, not to worry.  We are spending Mondays at The Inbox Jaunt getting our quilting lives in order.  By the time our Twelve Step Program  Quilt Notebooks are complete, we’ll have our quilt priorities in order and we will have all the skills necessary to complete each of the projects.  Furthermore, we will make informed decisions before we buy, accept as a gift, or start cutting any more projects that we have to add to our list.  Then…if we live long enough…we will complete all the UFOs we currently own!   How’s that for ambitious!   It’s still January…all goals seem possible in January…

And now for the winners!

  1. Kearstie Grenier, Lake County, IL
  2. Pam Dunlap
  3. Helen, Olympia Washington
  4. Bea, Utah
  5. Bonnie, Lake of the Ozarks

Congratulations to the winners!  Please contact me at and we can arrange delivery!

For those of you who did not win a stencil–more giveaways to come from King Arthur Flour, Sulky, and yours truly!

May all your stitches be “sick”,


NOTE:   The green quilt above is one of my favorite quilts.  I use it at Christmas and St. Patrick’s Day and any time I need some color around the house.  I used a stencil for the basic outline and then I heavily embellished it with fillers, feathers and border. You can read more about the quilt above HERE.

Stencil Giveaway!

Stencil GiveawayAs you know, I use stencils frequently in my quilts.  I used a child’s stencil for the Snow Crystal Quilt HERE and I used a stencil to stitch my Shamrock quilt last March.  See the Shamrocks HERE.  (The Shamrock Quilt is actually the Geranium Stencil #SCL-513.16.5)

Whenever I use a stencil, I “lori-ize” it by adding a lot of extra quilting.  See The Red Flower Quilt HERE

Quilt StencilToday, The Stencil Company is offering readers of The Inbox Jaunt five chances (Yes–five chances) to win my two favorite stencils–The Grid Stencils:   SCL-461.00 and SCL -457-10

I use these stencils frequently to mark straight lines and grids.
