Sews Magic – Giveaway

Summer is in full swing and I am stitching like mad for an upcoming show, but I want to celebrate the magic of 2017 so far. With help of the generous people at Stampington I’m hosting a giveaway. Two lucky readers will win either a copy of Art Quilting Studio or Sew Somerset and some goodies from me. Any comments on the blog in the next 7 days has a chance of winning.

She sews magic (9” x 12”)

I love creating with fabric, paper and thread, but I find inspiration in words too and have always collected quotes. I’ll be posting art quilts and quotes about magic for the next 7 days. I hadn’t realized just how often magic is included in a sentiment on a quilt until I went looking for them. I shouldn’t be surprised given that “believemagic” is a daily part of my life, but when I found 7 pieces I hadn’t yet shared here, I was smiling.

So let’s kick things off with a little Roald Dahl – his stories are magical.

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – Roald Dahl

For a giveaway entry, post a comment: tell me your favorite Roald Dahl book or story.

    definitely Matilda! Thanks for making me think about his works…. I even looked up a list and see a few I need to look into!

  2. “A little nonsense now and then, is cherished my the wisest men” RD
    Your work Carrie lights up my day!

  3. I’m a big Roald Dahl fan and have read many of his books to my elementary classes over the years. One of my favorites is The Twits. The Roly-Poly Bird made me wish so many times that I could be a bird like him. “For most people… flying away on holiday is very expensive, but I can fly anywhere in the world for nothing.” *I’m also a big fan of your work, Carrie!

    I love Charlie And The Chocolate Factory! It takes me right back to my childhood. Thanks!

  5. “Matilda” is my favorite Roald Dahl book–in its own way, I think it is a very hopeful story.

  6. I have never heard of the author you referred to , but intend to look him up. I do love your patterns, and way with thread, paper, and MAGIC. I saw your contribution to the Stampington magazine at Barnes and Noble, just last week. Congrats.

    Matilda is my favorite Dahl book. My daughters and I read every single one. Carrie, your art quilts with girls really speak to me, and give me inspiration to create my own “girls” into quilts, using your patterns, ideas, and many of my own from photos of my daughters doing the activities they love. You have featured me a few times, and I so appreciate being appreciated! Your creativity really does make me believe in magic!

  8. Carrie,
    This quilt is by far one of your best works! The background is not only magical but so magnificent to look at all the symbols for a quilter chain piecing away. And Matilda is my favorite book of his.

  9. Oh heavens! I am torn. I love the BFG, Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and The Witches equally. My daughter also loves Georges Marvelous Medicine, and the Twits. We own and have read them all.
