I'd like to see some small projects for the ones who have time constraints like me eg...journal covers,cushions :) Barb.

MARGA'S HAPPY PATCHWORK said...

I'd like to see a quilt with the same draws but in aplique.
Hugs.

Tarnyia said...

Love the stitchery and I can see many uses for it... maybe some more stitcheries to be used in smaller projects- runners, bags etc... mainly just keep designing as your work in an inspiration to us all xxx

inge said...

I would love a quilt on the 'sewing theme', stitchery of a rotary cutter, needles, scissors, ...

Jessica said...

I love your stitcheries, so maybe a cute pincushion or table runner.

Laurie in Maine said...

From what I've seen so far you're quite awesome at this designing thing and don't need "help" ;) Little stuff was a good answer - as I work away at my (aged) UFO pile and remind myself everything I start does NOT have to be a queen sized quilt!

Pepe said...

I like very much your individual design, so I think I would like you to stitch the life of the forest, with mushrooms and squirrel and so on... A litlle baby quilt, perhaps?

Martina said...

Me too, I love the small projects. They are fast done and great gifts. Love everything like stitcheries, applique, piecing ...
I am on the search for a small eastergift.

loulee said...

I agree with all the folks who have suggested some smaller items. With Stitchery. :-)

Sunnybec said...

I like doing smaller projects, so I finish them quicker! Table runners, cushion covers, wall hangings etc. Thank you for the chance to win, and thank you for the runners up pattern from your last giveaway...I love it!! Linda

AnitaS said...

I love tablerunners with a lot of lovely stitcheries. Placemats would be very nice too.

mandapanda said...

I'd love to see you design something with owls in it!! Like a pajama pillow with a pair of night owls! that would be so cute!

Lucky-1 said...

Mother's Day isn't that far away. Maybe a little stitchery that can be made for her or someone special like a sister if your mum has passed on.

Hugs

Debbie said...

I like anything that has a purpose like something to hold patterns, bags, baby things, stitcheries on something, journal covers, ipad covers, phone covers, laptop cover. I think that will do.

Varga Györgyi said...

I love your patterns, because their gracile and kind style. I like redwork and applique too and love to see combined pattern in the future. Hugs Györgyi

LintLady said...

Hello Vicki,
what do you think about a "Circus" theme? I am sure it would be very nice with your designs.
I am looking forward to see, what you decided to do.
Thank you for sharing
xxx Doris

Janet said...

Wow, lots of great ideas! I echo the idea of smaller projects, especially if they can be combined into a larger project like a quilt or a wallhanging, or combined with pieceing or applique, at maker's choice.

Thank you for the opportunity!

KaHolly said...

What would you expect from me but a request for more nature related designs, whimsical is good! ~karen

Sheila said...

I like the idea of more smaller stitheries that have so many uses , your designs are beautiful so whatever you decide I am sure we will love.

JayTee said...

I love small projects & hand stitchery...how abou something with a paisley design in it

Red Heads said...

I too, would like a smaller stitchery with applique. I do like all your work. Very inspirational. Talented lady you are!!! Dianne

free indeed said...

Small projects esp with a seasonal theme. Seems I don't have much of my stuff decorating around here..I tend to give everything away! OR a great idea: a calander block for every month of the year.

gill said...

Yes definitely something small and portable!

Diane H said...

Something in a wall hanging size with stitchery and applique with a nature theme, bugs and birds is what I'd like to see. Thanks for everything Vicki.

Country Stitches said...

Would love to see some of the smaller stitchery designs - that could be used for any occasion.

Jytte R said...

We have seen so many quilts with squares. What about a small wall hanging with circles filled with small stitcheries and some very small hexagon flowers in between. Thank you for sharing your lovely designs.

Hazel said...

Oh I agree a sewing theme ,wouldn't that be great fun.

Kathy H said...

I would like to see some beach or summery landscape scenes. I love your work and enjoy seeing all your designs.

BJ said...

Kitchen items - covers for teapot, mixer, toaster, etc. with embroidery; or sewing machine covers.
Small wall hanging for the quilt/sewing room related to that.
Love the idea listed about seashore/ocean.

Mommarock said...

Wow, opportunity.. and then I freeze.. ummm. I had an idea this morning that I really needed something to hang next to my dresser on the wall with little sections on it to pair up my pierced earrings. I could pin them through a decoration, and they would add to the decor. When I took them off, I would put them back in the same place, and when I needed to find them, I would find them there, in pairs... not in the bottom of a box somewhere.

Lin said...

I love baskets of flowers - with your talent, I'd love to see what you come up with!

Canadian Kristin said...

Your designs are beautiful! I especially like this pattern with a combination of stitching shapes and words with the quilting, too! Lovely!

My suggestion would be to use your lovely designs in a more masculine (trucks or fishing or sports) design. It's very hard to find boy designs out there!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

MoeWest said...

I am trying to improve my FMQ this year by practicing on small projects.

Marsha said...

OK, sounds silly, but I would love an outhouse theme. A cute outhouse with flowers or designs for the seasons! I'm a country girl and have been thinking back to my great grandmothers house, she didn't have indoor plumbling. Silly I know, but you did ask!

Wendy said...

Maybe a small wall hanging with sewing related stitcheries.

Karen said...

Some ting with stitchery as I love doing these

Marcia W. said...

I would like to see more stitchery and patchwork, as do not know how to do applique (yet). I prefer larger items like bed quilts. Thank you for this giveaway. The quilt is lovely, though cannot enter that giveaway because requires a blog. Alas, I am blogless.

Val Laird said...

Hi Vicki

Your designs are all gorgeous and I reckon with all the ideas coming forward, you will be designing for a long time in the future!

Regards
Val

Teresa Felgueiras said...

I love stitchery....maybe a table runner or a bag.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Wonderful designs. Thanks!

Bilie

Cheryll said...

I collect miniature bags and shoes and would like to see a BOM with those. OXOXOX

quiltmom said...

It is a lovely design and is making me think about how I can use flying geese in a design for my father with Nature panels. I have not done stitcheries in my quilts so perhaps your pattern would be my first attempt.
Thanks for the opportunity to win a nice price.
Regards.
Anna

Kimba4 said...

Stitcheries are great maybe with bears, fairies anything small. There are a few good suggustions in the list

Scottish Nanna said...

I need some table Mats so I would like A stitchery With A cup On A saucer with flowers in it I think that would look nice.
Hugs Mary.

Sally said...

Love your work.
Would love to see some small quilting & stitchery projects.
Thanks :)

Christine M said...

I love seeing anything you design!

Elyte said...

I would like to see some more small stitcheries on small projects. There are so many swaps and so much gift givng between bloggers that some new ideas in this area would be most welcome.

Allie said...

Wow Vicki - I love your block! It's gorgeous, and I love the words with it.
Ideas - egads - you truly got some great ones! I love your flowers, so more nature would be wonderful. Oh heck, I love everything you do. And I agree with the others about the smaller projects - those are fun without the huge commitment of time.

Sharon said...

Hi and Happy New Year. I really like all of your designs but I would love to see a bom maybe attributed to women. Like maybe different eras of clothes or maybe like things that are associated with women...something like that. This way it would be just for us...just an idea that I really am not explaining correctly.

Sharyn said...

Hi Vicki
I am having my first grandchild - a boy - in a few weeks. How about something for the boys. Sharyn

Just Ramblin' said...

I would like to see some small, quick projects that can be worked up quickly for Mother's Day. All your designs are so lovely! Nola

Ozjane said...

I would like to see something where the illustrations could be done in redwork by hand or replaced by a redwork design in machine embroidery of the same object eg: flower or bird or cat etc.
Sometimes it is nice to have a design worked out for you to slip machine redwork, or whitework as I did on red towels at Christmas, in instead of the hand stitchery. Mind you I like both. But nice to dream.

And speaking of Giveaways, I have one for over 1000 posts...all you have to do is choose one of the elements in my blog you have enjoyed.....and please pass the word on. I have a nice Yazzi craft bag as first prize.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

How about a tea towel set with applique?

Jutta...stoffundnadel... said...

Hi Vicki,
I love all your designs, the small ones, too.
Hugs from Germany, Jutta

Dot said...

Everything you do is beautiful--like many others, there are times when I could use something relatively quick to whip up for a gift. Mother's Day, birthdays, graduations, things of that nature are always coming up...

...and we all love different themes. I love music, sewing, farm life, cooking--any patterns you create are bound to be a hit with someone!

You'll never hit a home run with all of us at once, dear. We're all different and that's a beautiful thing! Do what you love and what appeals to you. We'll love it, too!

Sue said...

Hmmm...well, I too love stitcheries. I collect teapots and teasets, so a stitchery with them incorporated would be nice. Something like a table runner or small tablecloth for a High Tea maybe? I also love, and collect all things bee & beehives, so would love a little kitchen wallhanging with cute bees, and maybe a really nice kitchen saying on it too. Maybe something like, "Eat here at your own peril" - No, no, just joking!!! I mean something nice - a Christian verse would be lovely. Thanks for the opportunity Vicki! Hugs n Blessings from Sue xx

Loralynn said...

I love your hat stand emborideries. I would love to see some vintage looking dresses on stands to co-ordinate with them! That would be too darling!

Sharon (Stitches on Mars) said...

Hi Vicki,
I love cute stitcheries, or a bag organiser LOL
Hugs, Sharon

denise said...

I would love to be able to applique some Australian animals and birds. As all your work is of the highest standard and very enjoyable to do, I look forward to whatever you have in store next. Cheers for a great year ahead.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Oh, I love the pattern for your block. It is wonderful. I would love to see some small projects that could be worked into quilts or smaller individual projects. Thanks for a chance at this wonderful pattern.

JudiH said...

I love your designs and would like to see smallish items for around the house such as table runners

suzie said...

I love the combination of stitcheries and applique in a project bag or even sewing caddy.

Beeshebags said...

I know this isn't very original, but I love them, and know several others who love them too....and I'm talking about OWLS...hoot hoot!

Maybe some stitcheries or a bag, similar in size to Dawns Baseco bag with an owl stitchery on it or even some cute applique owls perhaps.

Hugs Naomi

paulette said...

I like all the ideas that others have mentioned, especially nature designs and seasons.

Terri. said...

I would like to see some smaller projects as well.

Samelia's Mum said...

I love stitcheries - especially redwork. Cute critter designs are always a winner in my book. Cute Aussie animals as single stitcheries with the possibility of a BOM (did that make sense?).

shishie said...

I am looking for something with frogs!

shez said...

Hi Vikki i would like to see you design a laundry bag with a beautiful scene on the front and of course some frills some where.
cheers Sheryl

Laine said...

I was thinking that this year I was going to go for more small projects that I know I will be able to get completed. I'd like to see maybe a Halloween wall hanging.

apple blossom said...

jofridsquilt said...

I love your sticheryes, so go on as you go. Jofrid

Terri said...

Well I haven't seen you do even one thing I didn't like. I do tend to be drawn to smaller projects though......mainly because my UFO pile has risen!!hugs, Terri

heleen said...

I like the stitcheries. Maybe some for a baby quilt will be nice.
I like your ideas.

Dawn said...

Love your stitchery projects. I would love to see tablerunners too. Thanks for the giveaway.

Val said...

I would like to see you design some tea things - tea pots, tea cups, cup cakes - for 1m square table cloth, tea cosies, tray cloths. Love your work.

Kim D. said...

Your stitcheries are so lovely, how about a sewing machine cover with an antique sewing machine, scissors and thread on the cover. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Lilian Pilar said...

un gran abrazo, publicas cosas bellisimas...

Mama Spark said...

I would love to see some more stitcheries with cats or birds. Love your blog!

Deborah in Atlanta said...

Smaller items that don't cause folks like me to stress out because I can't stand to have UFOs sitting around unfished. dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com
