Susan’s So Thankful Give-Away #17: American Patchwork & Quilting tote

Oooh, don’t you just love the beautiful orange and white fabric in this tote bag by American Patchwork & Quilting? It is today’s give-away. American Patchwork & Quilting magazine was one of the first quilting magazines I subscribed to when I started quilting, and I still love it. I think they do a great job of including projects for all levels and types of quilters. The directions are always clear and easy to follow. I also think it is very well designed. Visit to learn more about the magazine (psssssst! there are some great give-aways going on over there, too).

Make sure you check out the page on their 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. Quilters all over the country are making pillowcases through this program; they are passed on to people who need to feel some love – such as foster children, cancer patients, and victims of domestic violence. 

When I was in Houston for International Quilt Festival this fall, I visited the project’s booth, where they were very busy helping attendees whip up pillowcases. They were already up to 869 pillowcases; all were going to Houston Children’s Charity

Here’s your chance to win! Leave a comment after this post and tell me where you live, and the things for which your town or area is known. I’ll pull a name at random at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, and send you the tote bag. AND THE WINNER IS… Jennifer!
