Susan’s So Thankful Give-Away #1: La Todera Patterns

Julie Creus in La Todera’s booth at Fall Internatonal Quilt Market in Houston

Let’s get this party started! This is the first of many patterns and goodies in my Ever Sew Thankful Give-Away, and I’m starting with a bang!

Julie Creus of La Todera Sewing and Craft Patterns has donated four patterns, and they are sooooooooo cute! I met Julie at last year’s International Quilt Market, and just loved her designs. Julie’s patterns made a big splash there, and she was back this year with fresh, new designs to make and wear or decorate your house.
You can make the flower on the bottom using Julie’s Camelia Gigantus Brooch pattern for her “big mama of flower brooches” – 6" across. Now that would make a statement on a lapel or hat! The white-and-pink flower on the top is Julie’s Kanzashi Flower Fascinator pattern. (Note that items made from these patterns are for personal use only; they are not to make and sell.)
These beauties are made from the Dinner Plate Dahlia pattern (the big purple flower), and Julie’s Cymbidium Orchid Brooch pattern (the green and pink orchid below). 

Here are the patterns I’m giving away:

Here’s your chance to win. First, take a look at the La Todera website. Then leave a comment after this post and tell me which of her designs you like best (it doesn’t have to be one of the ones I’m giving away.) I’ll pull four names at random at 9 p.m. on Saturday Nov. 19, and send you one of the four patterns. WE HAVE WINNERS! upstateLisa, cat in tassie, Vickiquilternp and Debra have each won a pattern.
