Safe Harbor Pattern Winner

Thank you all for your support and encouragement with respect to my Safe Harbor quilt and pattern.  The response has been overwhelming and I am both thrilled and humbled.

The winner of my giveaway for a copy of the pattern is Paulette from Sweet Pea Quilting & Creations.  I'll be contacting you shortly, Paulette for your snail mail address as soon as I'm finished here!

*  *  *  *  *  *  *
If you recall, I mentioned a while back that I made a second version of Safe Harbor but in a different colorway.  Just yesterday I sent it to my friend Alice to be quilted.  Here's a photo of the flimsy.


While my first one "read" red, this one reads blue.


It was Mr. Painted Quilt's suggestion that I make another one in blue.  He doesn't ask for too much so I decided to make this one for him.


  

This got me thinking that perhaps it was time to offer some of my original design quilts for sale.

I deliberated long and hard about whether I should sell them and Mr. PQ and I came to the decision that it was time to share a few with others who might want to treasure one or more of them.  Having said that, I've listed some of my original design quilts for sale in my Etsy shop HERE...including Safe Harbor.

  
Thanks again to everyone who left a comment on my last post.  I wish you all could have won.  If you are still interested in ordering your own copy of my Safe Harbor pattern, they are still available in my Etsy shop.

Happy stitching!

Now these are my colors! My sewing room is done in a beachy ocean theme and this pattern must be made for it! I'll be ordering it on payday. Absolutely stunning!

The blue colourway is just as beautiful as the red. In fact, I might prefer blue. Well done Mr PQ for his suggestion. May he enjoy his new quilt.
So pleased that you share your gifts with the quilty community. xx

The blue colorway is fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing with us and offering the pattern for purchase. I'll be ordering my copy soon.

textilefiend said...

Thanks for showing the blue colourway - I will be making mine rather like this, or perhaps a little more turquoisey. I've ordered my copy now, and look forward to receiving it soon! I do hope shipping to Sydney, Australia, won't take too long......

Becky R said...

I am happy to see the pattern is available today so hopped right over and got it ordered. Will be anxious to get the fabric requirements so I can gather fabrics and get started. Thanks for creating and selling this pattern. It's beautiful and so different from patterns currently being offered.

Sandi said...

Congratulations Kaaren on your pattern release. How appropriate that Paulette wins it. From an island on the east coast to one on the the west coast. From sea to shining sea! I can't wait to see Paulette's version of your beauty.

momto1 said...

What a work of art, Kaaren. You are so creative. This is a gorgeous quilt.

Pam in IL said...

I love both colorways! Congrats to the winner too.

Jeanna said...

Congratulations to Paulette! I know she will love the pattern and I can't wait to see her version of the quilt.

Thanks for sharing the blue colorway...I think I like it a bit better only because I have more blues in my home.
