Dear Friends:

Whether you are a quilter, a sewer (who would like to try their hand at making a quilt!), or a spouse or loved-one of a quilter, please read-on for a chance to win!


SuzGuz Designs has a new pattern coming out, called: Box of Chocolates. This delicious concoction is calorie-free and a blast to make! Our sample quilt is made using the funky-cool fabric line called: Anda Lucia, by Patty Young for Michael Miller Fabrics. The fabric is bold, playful, and fun! We showed you a sneak-peek of our sample quilt top on August 19th.


To celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime date (09/09/09!), and our newest quilt pattern design, you may have a chance to win the following: 25 fat quarters to complete a quilt top using our newest pattern (batting, quilt backing fabric, and binding fabric is not included). You will also receive our Box of Chocolates quilt pattern, which contains 2-patterns-in-one. This is a wonderful prize or gift for any quilter, as you'll have the fabric and pattern needed to complete an 80 1/2" x 80 1/2" quilt top, all compliments of SuzGuz Designs and Michael Miller Fabrics!


Here's what you'll need to do for a chance, or chances to win: (1) Add a message to this post, letting us know why you'd like to win this free gift! (2) For an extra entry, go to our website and sign up for our NuzLetter! (3) You will get 2 more entries if you find me on Facebook, then please send a friend request and mention this give-away in your subject line by typing "09/09/09 Giveaway"!

The winner will be chosen on September 18th . . . "09" days away!

It is my distinct pleasure to provide this give-away to all of my customers and friends, old and new! I appreciate your business and will hold another give away for my appreciation, soon!

Good Luck!

What quilter can refuse a box of chocolates? I have been using EQ since its conception and have appreciated each upgrade. Hugs to you and thanks for a chance to win. Happy 09-09-09!!

sosewdi said...

I'd love to win a box of Chocolates today - as it is the birthdate of my new grand daughter!

Jan said...

Lucky day!!! Chocolate without calories.

Carrie said...

I love to win the pattern and fabric and of course a box of chocolates.

Cheryl said...

The opportunity to win something this wonderful is a beautiful thing! Today is my daughter's birthday and we are celebrating her "Magical" birthday as a family.

Sewbig said...

Thanks for offering this give away for 09/09/09. If lucky enough to be selected to win, I would love to make this quilt for my daughter-in-law to be. Pink is her favorite color and this may be just the quilt to get her hooked on quilting.

Sue said...

I would love to win the pattern and the fabric. I could snuggle down real easily. And I guess I would share the chocolates with my hubby. Since yesterday was my birthday I think I should win.

Chris said...

For the last 5 years, I've been limited to virtual quilts using EQ, which I've had since it's inception, due to a back injury. Today is the first day of recovery from a surgical implant, which I have been praying leads back to my making actual quilts. As a chocoholic, this design would be absolutely perfect for my reacquaintance with my Pfaff!

Linda Smith said...

Add me please I would love to win

Quiltinana said...

What more could a quilter ask for - fat quarters, quilt pattern and chocolate without calories??? Thanks for the chance to win!!

Love this quilt. It reminds me so much of the box of chocolate covered cherries I gave my beloved Dad every year for his birthday and Christmas. My Mom started this when I was small child and I continued it until he was in his 80's when I found out he didn't even like chocolate covered cherries! LOL

I love quilting but I don't have a lot of time for shopping for fabric, so winning this would be fabulous. I am fairly new to quilting and am currently working on "In A Snap" for my daughter. I have three kids and work 30 hours a week at home and quilting has become my "ME" time, but I am still able to sit with the kids while they watch cartoons or play video games. It is the best hobby.

Centergranny said...

I am so excited to even have a chance of winning a "box of chocolates" who can resist. The fabric and pattern would be wonderful, I hope my name is drawn! I am glad you are back full time with us! I know you had a great experience. I hope life is better for you and your family now!

melissa said...

I'd love to win this for my daughter who's currently battling breast cancer. I've used this fabric line to make her head scarf and the quilt would brighten her room and face :-)

Instant gratification with a box of chocolates that doesn't go straight to your hips (unless pulling the quilt over the hips).

Desperate to get back into crafting, been away from it for too long and what a better way to get back into it with Susan's gorgous box of chocolates design, and just think no calories either.
