Winter Is Here : Sandi Blackwell's Square-agonals Re-Review and Giveaway

Winter has arrived in Ohio and here is the  proof


IHAN Headquarters has been full with family for several days. 

Maddy, our youngest daughter, Abby and James (R-L) are visiting ...there has been lots of decorating, arts and crafts, games and of course dress up too.
 Aaron's version of a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree (that is play dough on the branches)

"Momma, are you interested in buying a snack...they are 25cents each?"

Zach decided he needed to raise a little holiday cash.  He walked around Headquarters offering to sell snacks to those who may need a little nosh!  (Paying twice for your groceries isn't always a bad thing..lol)

On to our Giveaway:



You may remember my first review of Square-agonals (click here if you don't) and how impressed I was and am with Sandi Blackwell's NO MATH method of making triangles and on-point blocks go together without the fuss and muss.  Sandi's Square-agonal Method will take you from fabric that looks like the sample on the left to the fabric on the right...without ever setting in a triangle.  Since her book has come out she now has some fun patterns and guide tapes.
Square-agonals Cutting Guide Tape - gives you a visual guide for the cutting and re-assembling process of your quilt sections as well as securing the bias edges. The tape can also be used as a guide for cutting of any quilt or fabric.

 Square-agonals Arrow Guide Tape - makes it simple for you to mark the numbered sections of your layout design.

Sandi just so happened to be in Houston for Fall Quilt Market 2011 and look at all the beautiful patterns she bestowed upon me...and another autographed copy of her Square-agonals book. 



If you leave a comment on this post promising me you will make a quilt/table runner/place mat/etc. using one of Sandi's patterns, I will put your name in the drawing to win.  There will be three winners, one for Square-agonals book, and two others will receive a Square-agonals pattern.  Entry comments close Monday Dec. 12, 2011.

Rad Zach wants everyone to know that IHAN does have Gift Certificates available for holiday gift giving.

I am finishing up a large bed quilt right now, and I have decided to concentrate on making small projects like table runners and accent pieces. So I will for sure make one of these projects!

Sharon said...

Please tell Zach that I love the hair....lol Yes I will promise you that I will make a table runner...Why you might ask because I want to make something for myself finally. I have made my Christmas gifts this year and am feeling left out and want to make myself something...so I would love to win...Happy holidays.

Allie said...

Love the family pics, and that Charlie Brown tree, my favorite! Don't enter me in the drawing though, I'd probably never make one, although they look fun!

Linda said...

I promise to make a table runner. I love to make small quilted items!

Kathryn said...

I promise. I have the fabric all ready. Thanks so much. Kathie L in Allentown

Kathy MacKie said...

Definitely!

quiltma said...

Oh I promise. I've been wanting to try this for a long time. Thanks and congrats to the winner.
Amazing!

Sue Bone said...

I'd definitely make something and then probably demo it at our guild too. It's a fun technqiue which I need to go and reread about.

Heleen Groot said...

Yes, I want the patterns....all the comments above (no offence) speak of little projects they promise to make. HA! I promise to make a full size quilt! Just saying.....

Quilter in the Gap said...

Well you know I am always up for another project. LOL Count me in! Thanks Kelly! It looks like your holidays are off to a great start!

Joy V said...

Can't wait to have another UFO???lol Honestly I will really really really try to complete a small project if I am lucky to win. Love the photos also of your family.

Gene Black said...

I promise I will make one, I just can't promise WHEN.

Sam said...

Hi Kelly and thanks for making this possible. I love the wig! I will definitely make a table runner if I win one of these prizes. They are really lovely and I have just the place for the runner. Hope you have a great Christmas, including some time for a break. We really appreciate all you do and love reading your blog. kind regards Sam

pinsandneedles said...

I promise to make a quilt or table runner if I win one of the prizes. I love to learn new techniques. Thanks!

Karin said...

Me thinks you have sent winter south! We had a freeze last night and our tomatoes & peppers are now totally done. :( At least we don't have any of that white stuff!!!! (yet?) I've gotta ask, tho - why is young Zach holding his ears while he's catching snowflakes on his tongue?

Love the new do on Rad Zach! Looks like he's having lots of fun!

If I won, I'd definitely make a table runner (and I know just who would get it, too!!) using that tape & pattern (or book). You know how I am about math, and that method looks complicated to start, but probably gets easier as it goes along. Tho, I would guess the tape makes much more sense of it. You're very kind to be giving so much away all the time! You may have your winter back now, thank you very much.

Regina said...

On my honor as a quilter - I promise (can you tell I have been to a few too many Scout meetings of late?)

Carla G said...

What awesome patterns! I promise to make either a tablerunner or quilt if I win! :) Thanks for a chance to win! :)

Lorna said...

I'd love to win the Square-agonal book. Just thinking of what I could make makes me grin with pleasure.

Melinda in Tulsa said...

I'm such a sucker for all kinds of rulers and just LOVE making tablerunners. (So much quicker than a full size quilt! Instant gratification!) Hope I win.

Me and My Stitches said...

I promise I would make something. I do not promise when it will be finished! (And...I gave my rulers away yesterday at church!!)

Mrs.Pickles said...

oh i'd love a chance to make one of this patterns. I think i could even keep my promise to finish it!

gill said...

I promise to make one - scout's honour!

Mimi said...

I will definitely promise to make a table runner if I win... love the idea of simpler and quicker too! Thanks!

Marcia W. said...

Rad Zach will get after me if I don't promise, eh?? These are really cute patterns and the book, oh my. Does the technique work with FQs? I have a group of 8 Christmas fqs that say "use me". Thanks Kelly.

gab said...

I'm always game for a new method and gadgets. Yes, I promise to make something from one of these goodies.

Bev said...

I sure would make a tablerunner or two or more. This sounds like a technique I will just have to try. Thanks.

Linda V said...

I promise to make a table runner at least! Thanks for the giveaway chance!

Cross my heart and hope to die,

I enjoy your reviews very much. I do plan to buy the tapes. (after Christmas) I already see more uses for the tape in other projects. What a concept! And would sure make a quilt or more if I win.

Scouts Honor! I'll do it.

We'd have to make a quilted item if we won? Since I'll be making quilted items even if I don't win, that's an easy promise to make! I'd love to try one of those patterns!
