Woodland Walk Kit Giveaway


Inspired by the peaceful quiet of a winter snow, this mat reminds me of the joy and wonder ~ beautiful and unique snowflakes gently falling, crisp clean air, that lovely crunch of snow under your feet…


I was so thrilled to have my “Woodland Walk” design published in the current issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects. 


To celebrate, I am having a giveaway of a wool kit using the same antique and hand-dyed wools (along with the brushed cotton backing) that I used in my original table mat. You will also receive a copy of Primitive Quilts and Projects with my pattern along with many other lovely patterns. 


This giveaway is open to everyone! To enter, simply leave a comment on this post or send me an email at pgagliardi9@hotmail.com with "Kit Giveaway" in the subject line (to help me find it!) and tell me... What is you favorite part of winter?

I will randomly select a winner on Sunday, January 24th.

 Since I had pulled out the twelve different wools included in this project, I also created a few very limited kits for sale. These limited edition kits are available for $30 plus shipping. If you need the magazine with your kit, I have copies available for $10. 
To purchase the kit, just send me an email. 
I can send a PayPal invoice or I also accept checks and money orders.
~*Please note: Only one kit remains available.*~

Thanks for joining in the fun and Good Luck!

"I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing."
~John 15:5

Blessings, Patti

Congratulations on being featured in Primitive Quilts & Projects! Sweet woodland project! My favorite part of winter....snowy days! Least favorite is the kind of weather we're having now.... O degrees is too cold. ;-)

Your project is cute. Congratulations on being featured in the magazine. I love the moment when you walk outside at night and there is no breeze and there are big fluffy flakes of snow floating down. For me it is very peaceful.

Kathy MacKie said...

Congratulations on having your sweet project featured in the magazine. Living on the West Coast winter is very different from what we experienced growing up on the Canadian Prairies and I truly love it here so much more, the climate is so much milder and I can go for my walks with a light coat and running shoes. It is truly my paradise.

Oh my goodness, you are selecting a winner on the 24th, my birthday!
I love winter for those lovely times when you can sit snugly in front of a roaring fie & just stitch away to your heart's content!

Marilyn said...

Congrats on your accomplishment for the magazine.
My favorite part of Winter is snow.
Yesterday the flakes falling on my car looked like little pieces of lace, you could see the intricate patterns in them, so pretty.
Wish I could've saved some!
I love to go outside early morning when it snows and listen to the peacefulness.
Thanks for the chance for this cute kit.

Annie C said...

Oh, gosh yes! This is ABSOLUTELY delightful and would be SO much fun to do during these cold months.

Jane said...

Beautiful colors! Love the smell of crisp cold air.

Betsy said...

Patti, congratulations! The best part of winter is when it ends. I moved to Florida to be warm not cold. U fortunately I moved more north and today it is 48 degrees. Sometimes we get as low as 32. Not Bueno for me, lol

Sharon Dvorak said...

I love Winter. I can stay indoors and sew. Thank you for the offer.

Mary @ Neat and Tidy said...

Very cute design and colors!

Karen said...

Would love to win your kit. What I like about Winter is the peacefulness of snow falling, a fireplace going, and some good comfort food. I live in the Mountains and is beautiful when it snows. Still waiting for a good snow.

So you want to know my favorite part of winter..... I think it is staying indoors and sewing a new project or trying to finish up some of the UFO's that seem to be calling my name. It would be wonderful to have a new wool winter kit to work on in the evening while warming my feet by the fireplace.
Thanks for the opportunity,
Donna A.

Kit giveaway

Thank you for a chance at your gorgeous wool project. I have the magazine, but welcome a chance at getting your kit.

The thing I enjoy most about winter here in Northern Ohio is the fact I am retired.

Lillian Carol said...

Such a lovely and generous giveaway....thank you Patti! Stitching away on a winter afternoon watching the snowflakes fall is the best! I love the peacefulness that a fresh blanket of snow brings.

Sheila said...

Congratulations on your design beiy published. It is a very nice. Thank you for a chance to win your kit.I love sitting and watching it snow outside.

Joyce Mayer said...

Happy stitching!!

Gail Grassel said...

Congratulations on having your creation featured in the Primitive Quilt & Projects Magazine...I would love to win this little table mat...It is absolutely adorable! I would display it behind my counter in the shop so that you could see it the next time you visit Up North!

pj said...

Patti
Congrats again on your magazine status! We always thought you were famous! I don't like winter much but sitting down to stitch watching a beautiful snow fall or seeing the trees all frosted up on a cold morning is showing God's wonderful landscape in all its beauty! But, I look forward to spring and get antsy for warmer days! Today is a brisk one!

Gloria said...

I am afraid that my favourite part of winter is when it is over and the sun shines!

This winter has been a particularly grey and wet one in my part of the United Kingdom.

Congratulations on having your project as a feature in Primitive Quilts. I shall definitely look for a copy the next time that I am in the US.


QuiltLady said...

Congrats on your project in Primitive Projects and quilts. Love to win and thanks for the giveaway!!

Melanie Truesdale said...

My favorite part of Winter is the anticipation of the cold and first snow flake. After the hot East Tennessee summer, both my husband and I are like little children, hope in our eyes as we eagerly wait that first flake that just MAY turn into enough to cover the ground and even make a snowball!

Lynelle said...

I would have to say that, living in Florida, my favorite part of winter is watching the snow up north on tv! I grew up in Michigan and know all about the pretty white stuff, but don't miss it at all. Well, maybe for 5 minutes during Christmas! Love your pattern! Love working in wool, and wish we had more shops here that carried supplies we love.....

rusticity8685 said...

Patti, I absolutely love winter. We have a farm, and I love going out in the morns to do my chores.I love coming in to sit by the fire to do my woolies. Congrats on your published project. Love it and would love to own it. Thanks, Donna, The Primitive Quilter

Mugwump Woolies said...

Such a wonderful little snowman! I especially love the trees. Congrats on having your fun pattern featured in this great magazine! I'd love a little snowman down here in sunny Florida!

My favorite part of winter is the quiet after a huge snow. Love it!
Congratulations!

Donna K. from N. Texas said...

I saw your project in my issue of PQP magazine. It is darling. Would love to win the kit.

Christine McCarthy said...

Congrats on being published. I have to say that snowmen are my favourite part of winter. Having said that the end of winter is my very favourite. LOL

Joan Martin said...

I saw the project in Primitive Quilts and Projects - just love it. What a wonderful snowman to work on when it is cold and snowy.

dortha said...

I guess my favorite part of winter is planning garden and flowers for spring. Love the project and would love to win. Thank you for the chance.

bethq said...

Love the woo lie. My favorite part of winter is being outside at night and how the snow makes it so light. That and the quiet.

Mary Arntson said...

This pattern and kit would be wonderful to win. Thank you...

laura b said...

Congratulations on such an honor to be featured in a fantastic magazine. This winter has been fantastic for us in PA, warm temps and no snow. I guess if I have to choose something to like about a typical winter it would be the decor of snowmen, snowflakes. Also the beauty of fresh fallen snow on a non work day 😁

zaneyonequilts said...

I absolutely love your project. My favorite part of winter is "snowed in with electricity" - an unexpected snow day where I can put a pot of chili on the stove and stitch all day!

Terri McBride said...

Winter is my,favorite time of year because it is peaceful, a time to regroup after the busy holiday season. Thank you for the giveaway I love this mat you have used as your header. Tdsvintagelife@gmail.com

jay love said...

This design is too cute! Love the wools you have selected!

HomePlace Gatherings said...

My favorite part of winter is when it snows real deep and I have a great excuse for staying home in my jammies and stitching all day. :)

Sherri B (gentlewinds5) said...

Congratulations on your published wool pattern in Primitive Quilts! It's darling!!! My favorite part of winter is the peace and tranquility that comes from watching gently falling snow and the fire place crackling with iridescent flames. A warm cup of coffee, chocolate or tea sitting beside me as I work on new wool projects is the perfect addition. :)

Lyn said...

Congratulations and thank you for the chance to win your Give away, it is adorable. My least favorite part of winter is the freezing temps, snow, and especially the ice....moderately cold and sunshine would be enough.....

Sue said...

Cute project! Congratulations and thank you for the chance to win!

Lorraine VanWhy said...

Congratulations on having your creation in Primitive Quilts.

Tanya Quilts in CO said...

My favorite part of winter is the beautiful blanket of snow!

Glenda said...

Oh this kit is so pretty! Thanks for the giveaway. What I love about Winter: Well here in Georgia we get very little snow but I enjoy a few days of snow . I love to use my wood stove and watch the roaring fire. I love to have a pot of soup on the stove and a pan of cornbread in the oven. I enjoy winter when I do not have to go out in the cold. My heart goes out to the people who work in the cold all day .

paulette said...

What a wonderful give away!! My favourite part of Winter is that I can quilt guilt free...like today! The rain is falling so I am heading into my sewing room to while away the day! LOVE IT!! Thanks for the chance!!
Paulette

cucki said...

Sandi said...

Thanks for a chance to win this great give away, your design is lovely. Now we just need some snow locally to reproduce the setting!

Edwina said...

What a great project. It is a snowy Winter day here and a perfect time to sit and stitch. Love it when there is a snow day.

jcrewlvr said...

My favorite part of winter is when all the snow melts and it starts to warm up, dreaming of gardening. Thank you for the chance to win this lovely giveaway---Laura T.

marie said...

I love snow days, but don't get enough of them. Nothing like the sun shinning on snow, unlike the grey rain days we have lot of in the NW.

Jackie said...

We don't get much snow here in Eastern North Carolina ~ though it does get cold. So when it does snow, I like the stillness and quietness all around me. Everything looks so beautiful and peaceful.

Barb said...

Favorite part of winter is a cozy sweater. Don't like the snow/ice, but the coldness that brings out a comfy sweater is ok. Thanks for sharing!

Nancy in IL said...

It's funny... when I saw your post in the Wool and Cotton Applique group, I was smitten and thought I would have to buy this pattern because it's so me, winter being my favorite season after fall. What I love about winter is when the snow is fresh, it blankets my world in peace and quiet, and I love going out onto my enclosed, heated porch with windows completely around and drink coffee with my kitties while we all watch our backyard birds.

And congratulations for having your design featured in the magazine. You well deserve it with its beauty!

Pam Harrington said...

Congratulations on being recognized in that wonderful magazine and THANKS for the giveaway!

Kathy L. said...

I love your pattern in the magazine. I enjoy your blog and am amazed at all you find time to complete. You inspire me!!
My favorite part of winter is when snow is fresh and I can go snowshoeing with my husband and Golden retriever and enjoy the beauty everywhere I look.
I would love the wool to complete the project. Thank you for the giveaway

Congratulations! I love the snow in the wintertime. Fresh snow is so beautiful and peaceful as it settles on trees and evergreens! Makes me feel like I'm in a snow globe or that time is standing still for just a moment!

"Kit Giveaway" what an awesome kit to win. My favorite thing about winter, is after a fresh snow how it hangs on the trees, and the glistening it gives when the sun shines on it. breathtaking. I would love to create this wool project.

Not a big chance of it in Georgia, but a girl can dream! In lieu of snow, I will take cold blustery days and being all snuggled up in front of the fireplace, stitching.

Thanks!!!

Oooo! This is exciting! My favorite part of winter is more stitching time! The snow means no yard work & instead snuggling up under a quilt with some hand work & a cup of tea. Thanks for the chance to win!

Mary Margaret said...

Thanks for the lovely give away!!
TBH my favorite part of winter is when it is over!

Pat said...

I LOVE everything about winter...it is truly my favorite season...the magic of a snowfall, the smell of a wonderful soup/fresh bread dinner, the sound of the roaring wind,...I'm in incurable romantic.
Busy Hands...Happy Heart

Kathy B. said...

What a great give-away. I have the magazine and have been thinking about purchasing some more wool to make your snowman mat, but winning would be terrific. Thanks for the chance. My favorite part of winter is how clean everything looks when fresh snow falls. However, right now we are getting a good share of snow, so I'm thinking things looking clean enough out there!

Phyllis said...

Watching the redbirds on the ground in the snow feeding on the seeds we put out for them and the other birds.

Lee Anne said...

Walking outside in the evening when the night is clear and the moon bright on the snow. Love your wool piece - lovely!

Beautiful pattern and wools. I love Primitive Quilts and Projects. Congratulations on being published.

Ann said...

Congratulations on being published! I love the magazine and what I have seen of your designs is a perfect fit! Bes wishes for all your design endeavors.

Judy said...

My favorite part of winter has to be the snow. We don't get much here in TN, so it is always thrilling to see any kind of flake no matter how tiny. I love the design and have been completely inspired to re-create it with my preschoolers in an upcoming Winter unit. I'll cut the pieces, and they'll attach the pieces with glue. I know they'll love this one. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the world.

dawn said...

I like winter storms which allow me to stay home and sew.

Ms Peppercorn said...

I like the excitement of a winter storm. The warnings about it coming, the hunkering down, and then getting cozy and letting it snow!

Kraftii1 said...

Winter storms allow me to bury myself in my crafting.

Ronnie said...

I love the cozy days of being indoors, lots of time for stitching! Thanks for the drawing, love your little pattern and the magazine is such a treasure trove of great patterns!

cl said...

I love to watch it snow outside through the sliding door in our family room. It mounds on the picnic table while I'm cozy in my stitching chair. I've been doing more with wool lately and would love to win your kit......

I live in Minnesota, and love winter days and evenings when it snows, and I don't have to go anywhere. I can just look out the window and enjoy the falling snow.

Thank you,
Linda

Oh my, Bless you Patti for offering such a fabulous give-away & I thank you for the chance to be chosen the winner!
I love the change of all seasons as they come but particularly winter as it gives me a chance to "hibernate" so to speak. A time to wind down, relax & get caught up on a lot of unfinished projects!

Hi Patti, first let me say I really enjoy your blog and the fact that you always add a scripture. It somehow restores my faith in humanity. Congratulations on being published, so exciting.
