Giveaway! Mug rug for you...

Shhh, it is my birthday, 41 today.  I am not a big one for celebrations ( I have had some lovely pressies, I'll share later) and even a birthday girl has to go to work, so for now it is giveaway time.
I plan to be producing more paper pieced patterns in the future and selling them as downloads so to win this mug rug I would like you to give me just a little help- leave a comment telling me what image you would like to see paper pieced.  This will help give me some ideas on where to start!
The giveaway is international.
I need to be able to contact the winner so check that your email is in your profile or your comment.  Followers get an extra entry- just leave a second comment saying you follow.
Giveaway closes Friday 7th October  6.00am GMT
I won't be replying to these comments but I will be reading closely to see what you suggest.
You can make your own mug rug here.
**Good Luck**

  2. Happy Birthday Kerry - we are so close together, mine is Monday! Great idea to make and sell patterns - kitchenalia does seem to be cool at the moment as are doors and windows, Christmas stuff would be great too. Have a lovely day. XXX

  17. Happy birthday! The image I would like to see a paper pieced is a pastry to go with your coffee cup. Then a tea cup to go with them and then a piece of cake, then a donut, soon we have a coffee break quilt!

  18. Happy birthday! I would love to win this treasure. I always love seeing your photos pop up in flickrland. I agree that kitchen-themed blocks would do very well, or maybe some bird blocks.

  21. I'd really love a paper pieced version of Archie but realise that not everyone would like that (!) but I'd also love some people - maybe ones that could be customised or mixed and matched so you could choose different heads, bodies and legs...oh, and a sewing machine would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Happy birthday to you!!! I love mug rug: it's a simple and quickly project!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Happy Birthday - glad you have caught up with me, and we are both still younger than Lynne!

    Not that I even want to think about Christmas, but I think a pair of Santa legs sticking out of a chimney, maybe with a TV ariel/sack/sledge would look kind of great paper-pieced (if you did it - me, not so good!) xx

  24. And now.....I'm a follower! Thanks for the giveaway!

  43. Oh your mug rug is adorable. I agree with kitchen things. The ones I've seen out there are so adorable, but no patterns. I'm just not creative enough to make the pattern myself! So kitchen appliances, food, dishes, pots, etc would be so adorable!

  59. hi Kerry, you are so kind to be giving this gorgeous mug rug away! I would definitely buy patterns for Christmas themed things - eg trees, stars, gifts or for sewing themed things - eg spools, pincushions. And I would love to buy patterns for other 'cup of tea time' things - like a teacup, cake, plate, anything foody related. Hope that helps! And I just joined us up as followers so we could have two chances of winning!! thanks so much.

  60. hi - this is a 'I am a follower' comment in addition to the one I just left. thanks again for the chance to win your gorgeous mug rug Kerry, and for the pattern, love it.

  61. Hartelijk gefeliciteerd! What a very cute mug rug. For me anything easy to paper piece will do it, as I am not good at paper piecing. But, I will try your method with freezer paper. Sounds like a good idea.
    I'm not sure if a funny dog is difficult to make into a paper piece pattern or a tree with branches, appliquéing leaves and a bird to it. That sounds difficult though. I look forward to see your new ideas (o:

  63. I love the mug rug and thanks for the instructions. I'm new at quilting so they were very helpful. I love flowers, so a rose, iris, tulip would be nice. Also I was thinking about some fall designs, pumpkin, leaves, etc.
    Hope you had a wonderful birthday..sending belated wishes to you!

  65. Happy birthday, Kerry! sorry I'm late in sending the wishes. Well, I LOVE the Featherweight but you probably can't do that one. I really like the idea of Santa legs poking out of a chimney top.

  76. Happy birthday to yo, what about doors for a subject..they hold a fascination for me..portals to who knows where... and there are so many types and interesting architecturally with doorways like arched, gothic, rustic, old and modern. That's probably quite enough about doors for now, I hope that you enjoy your special day. I am a follower by the way.
