It would be fun to have one of your pouches, Ella! I'm off to read what you wrote about your new pillow! And I've never hand-quilted an entire quilt, but I would imagine that if you use the delicate cycle, it should be fine. Just make sure your ends are firmly secured!

Cinnamon said...

Very cute bags!! I love blue. :)

Lil Bean said...

Oh, and the quilt? My mom used to wash hers on gentle in the huge laundromat machines so there was enough room.

Patti said...

Thanks for the giveaway

Kathy H said...

My favorite Christmas song is WHite Christmas. There are several quilt care soaps available to wash your quilt with and I would use several color catchers in the wash.

Rookie said...

What cute pouches - I love the little red one with the bubbles :)

Lemme think - favourite song? Well, at the moment I have "Fire is low" from freshlyground in my head. They did the Soccer World Cup theme song with Shakira, but are fatastic musicians on their own (a local South African band). If you can get your mitts on a cd, I would recommend them for sure. Great music to craft to.

Good luck with your quilt :)

Hannah Dolan said...

oh they are lovely! favorite song has to be any by Bob Dylan! I just love him.

Binks said...

Uber cute and useful pouches. Purple is my favorite color but I think I would love a pouch in either yellow or orange. They're so cheerful.
If I had to choose 1 song, I guess I would go with 'On Your Porch' by The Format. That's a really hard question though.

Anonymous said...

Love your little zippered pouch...do you have any orange?!?!?! =) Merry Christmas! =)

strandkorbtraum said...

favourite song - I could tell you one of my favourite music - Vivaldis recorder concertos the slow movements are great ...

strandkorbtraum said...

you asked about washing the quilt here is a great link: http://hartcottagequilts.com/quiltcare.htm
and as I didn't write that "tip" myself, don't count the entry plese... (I just didn't want to delete and re-write my earlier one)

Sylvie said...

What cute pouches! I love lilac :)

My favourite song has to be Mustang Sally, it's "our" song (we heard it everywhere when we were dating and then after being newly married).

CMG said...

Ride of the Valkyrie - great piece of music.

Your bags are so sweet!

Sarah said...

I love turquoise.

My favorite song right now is "Scratch" by Kendall Payne. It's great!

(my birthday is Saturday, and this would be such a great birthday present!)

Jenny said...

Cute pouches! Thanks for the chance to win one! My favorite song right now is "His Favorite Christmas Story" by Capital Lights, makes me tear up every time I hear it.

OhioMomPatriot said...

Merry Freakin' Christmas by Relient K
It makes me laugh every time I play it, drives my 20yr old CRAZY! Thanks for a great giveaway!

Amy said...

Beautiful pouches! Thanks for the giveaway! Amy @ gasudimack(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

Beth said...

Currently I am listening to Relient K's Christmas album, and I love "Santa Claus is Thumbing to town" - fun! But my favorite song constantly changes.

gill said...

Great pouches! I like turquoise - just sayin'

gill said...

My advice would be 'gently does it!!'

Snoodles said...

I'm your newest follower, and I love your pouches in the picture. Only thing I'd change would be to make one blue! LOL My fav song is "Going Home" from Gods and Generals.

Snoodles said...

I'm a hand-quilter, and I usually put them in the tub (scrub it first - ewww) and add water and a liquid detergent. Agitate it and then drain/fill with cold water to rinse.
The hard part is to dry it. I take it to the laundromat in a thick garbage bag, cos they have this thing that spins most of the water out, without moving it around much at all.
Then it doesn't weigh so much, and I actually do hang it on the line. (Gasp) Works for me!

Nancy said...

Dave colors...green and brown! Love them!! Fav song: the river by Joni Mitchell

nancebagance at yahoo dot ca

Belle + Bee said...

Love that one on the bottom of the pic with the splash of red! Gorge! Current fave - Keep Me in Mind, but my choice changes every few weeks because radio stations way over play songs until I can't stand to hear them again:) beckymac1 at hotmail dot com

Lee said...

The pouches are pretty! thanks for the giveaway.

Mary said...

Ooh,I love the idea of the winner choosing the colors! I'd pick orange. Favorite song might be Perhaps Love by John Denver and Placido Domingo since my dad used to play it for me as a kid.

Lee said...

I would use a quilting wash soap (from a quilt shop) and a large machine (if the quilt is big) on gentle cycle w/ the color guard strips.

lorraine said...

my fave song is well..thats a hard one..i guess ill say bob dylan ramona :) raineoc@yahoo.com

Marguerite said...

Yay colors! Hmm... Josh Groban singing O Holy Night? I'd say wash in the tub and dry on the shower rail - if it's clean and not likely to leave a dingy black stripe along the quilt! dangandblast@gmail.com

Holly U said...

I've been wanting to get a new makeup bag, this would be perfect!

How about a favorite tune? Music for a Found Harmonium, especially the way Sharon Shannon plays it. I always crank it up!

Lynn said...

One of my favorite songs is Willy Nelson's version of The Sunny Side of the Street. Makes me smile every time I hear it!

And I hope you like yellow as much as I do, because that is the color I would pick out if I won!

Heather A said...

A pouch would be so nice to win. I love them but am terrified of zippers!

Fav song ... hmmmm ... "My Brown Eyed Girl". I think of it as "my song".

Anne said...

Hard to pick one favorite song...maybe Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen? My favorite color combo is light green and yellow. Pink and grey is nice, too. Merry Christmas!

What a generous giveaway. Thanks for participating. I'd love one of your pouches.

Julia Badgley said...

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.
As for washing quilts, I can't be too helpful, but I used to wash my bathing suits in Zero by hand and hang them to dry and I think that extended their life... maybe it works for quilts?

ELNM said...

Great, very useful gifts. Thanks for a chance to win! ellen@myerly.net

Thank you for the opportunity;)

Brooke Crook said...

I would love a custom pouch!

Sharon said...

Those are great! I love the purple ones, but I'm an orange/peach kinda gal. ;)
I wish I had a tip on washing hand quilted quilts, but I definitely don't. I have an old one (MIL's gma, I think) hanging on the wall that needs a wash, but I'm scared!

The Hungry Crafter said...

Nice pouches -- and how great to pick your own color! Love the pics of your animals in the header :)

StephanieS said...

This morning I was whistling the opening song in Forest Gump. And I have not watched the movie in years!
