This week everyone is a winner! I’m giving away the pattern for this very cute basket of pears. It is from our book, Applique Delights. You can make the block in wool or cotton fabric. It can be used as an embroidery pattern or appliqued and then embellished. You can enlarge or reduce it using the chart on the pattern page.

Susan Spiers is this week’s lucky winner! She will receive two different needle threaders that are compact, portable, and that really work! (Of course you do have to see well enough to put the wire through the eye of the needle :-).)
If you are not Susan and you’d like one or more needle threaders, you can find them and all sorts of sewing notions, books, and other fun stuff at pieceocake.com!
Congrats to Terry Sharp, this week’s winner! She will receive a package of Karen K. Buckley’s Perfect Stems. The package has 8 different sizes of heat resistant strips that allow you to make bias stems from 1/8″- to 1/2″-wide. Each size is a different color. The bars are smooth to make moving the bar inside the stem easier. Karen’s instructions are included in the package.

Debra Reber is this week’s winner. She will receive Magic Mirror. It is made from two 6″ x 6″ plexiglass mirrors, joined together on one side. Place the mirror on different motifs on printed fabric to see what your block can look like with motif repeated. It is easy to use and has complete instructions.
Watch the video below to see how it works.

Darlene Slocum is this week’s winner… congrats, Darlene! She will receive a beautiful hemostat from Tula Pink. It is a tool that grabs well all the way to the tip without having to squeeze it hard. The inside of the ‘blades’ are smooth so that they grip without damaging the fabric. Use it for pushing, pulling, turning or stuffing.
This week’s giveaway of a Big Goddess Sheet goes to Karen McMahon. Congrats to Karen! If you are not Karen and would still like to have your own Goddess Sheet, click here to find it.
This product is really fantastic for fusing. It diffuses heat very well – I especially like using it with wool applique but it works with cotton too. The 17 3/4″ x 24″Big Goddess is Teflon coated fiberglass designed to be used with fusible web.
FYI: The instructions say not to fold the sheet, but I have sometimes folded mine and it has not seemed to hurt it.
