Concerto Quilt Top and Giveaway

If you are a follower of Alyssa at Pile O' Fabric, you know she just revealed her new pattern company Aria Lane. Back in December, I was lucky enough to be chosen to test her first quilt pattern, Concerto. Here is the quilt top I created with Alyssa's pattern.




I made the throw size, which ended up being 64 x 78 inches. I used Laura Gunn's Magnolia Lane, Kona Expresso, Emerald, and White. The pattern is very straight forward and easy to follow, and easy enough for a beginner to follow.

And thank you Mara for pointing out that my quilt top would be perfect for A2W's Pantone Quilt Challenge.
2013 Emerald Quilt Challenge

Are you interested in trying this quilt? Of course you are! Alyssa's Concerto was even accepted into Quilt Con! So Alyssa is generously supplying readers of my blog with ONE PDF copy of Concerto. The winner will be contacted after the giveaway by Email with the PDF of Concerto.

Giveaway is closed, winner contacted by email.

My favorite part of Spring is the smell right after a rain shower. Love that, and of course all the flowers AND being able to get the kids outside to play. We had a brief taste of Spring here this last week, I can't wait until it is here for good!

Followers of my blog may enter a second time, please leave a separate comment and let me know how you follow me, Facebook, RSS or GFC.

The Concerto giveaway will run until 11:59 PM CST on Sunday, March 17th. Again, the winner will be contacted by email so please be sure to leave your email address if it is not linked to your profile. Good luck everyone!

March 11, 2013 at 3:10 PM

The departure of snow and the arrival of spring flowers.

March 11, 2013 at 3:12 PM

Picnics on quilts of course! While the kiddos run around and play, and pup chases butterflies. A little mushy, but seriously, some of my best memories!

March 11, 2013 at 3:14 PM

March 11, 2013 at 3:20 PM

I love spring here in St. Louis - the temperature, green, flowers.... After 13 years in Houston, it is nice to have a spring!

March 11, 2013 at 3:56 PM

Such a fabulous pattern and I love the fabrics you have used. My favourite part about Spring here in Australia is that it begins on my twin sons birthday.

March 11, 2013 at 4:04 PM

My favorite part of spring is the hint of green peeking out right at the end of winter! We're getting to that point at my house and it makes me happy!

I love spring because I can walk the dogs more and spend more time outdoors with them and not have icicles for fingers.

March 11, 2013 at 7:29 PM

Love this quilt!! My favorite thing about Spring is that baseball season is just around the corner. Like Fall, Spring is fun because the temperature is always changing and you just never know what to expect. I know that drives some people crazy, but I like it.

I really do love all the flowers. On a walk or a bike ride I get delicate wafts of honey and spice, mmm.

March 11, 2013 at 9:23 PM

Love seeing all the flowers pop out:)

March 11, 2013 at 10:11 PM

My favorite part of spring is the food! Strawberries, asparagus and artichokes, at least in California). And my birthday (sometimes the first day of spring).

March 12, 2013 at 4:38 AM

The most precious part of spring is the end of the day, when the sun shines throw the windows and make the colours of fabric even more bright!

March 12, 2013 at 7:55 AM

My favorite part of Spring is getting rid of the snow and ice! I also love to be able to ride in my car with the windows down. Thanks for the give away!

Great quilt! Love the emerald color! Works well here! Well done!

My favorite part of spring is watching everything turning green and the new buds for the leaves and flowers. Love seeing the new growth.

March 12, 2013 at 10:33 PM

Love Emerald! My favorite part of spring is having the windows open...fresh air after a cooped up winter and before a scorching summer. Thank you.
