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.

  31. 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

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

  33. 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.
