    Well, it would be pretty hard to cut into that beautiful fabric!!! But, I think I'd like to try one of the quilts in the book.


  2. Nicola says:

    My first quilt was a present for my niece. My brother loved it so much that I think their wedding present has to be their own quilt. I'd love to make the large sawtooth star string quilt. I love the mix of the uneven strips and the stricter star design. My brother and sister-in-law would love the bright colours and bold design. Of course I need to build up some scraps first. I'd like to work with some half square triangles so the ocean waves quilt appeals to me. Perhaps I could keep one quilt for myself!

  3. Charlene says:

    What a great prize! I would want to make pillows, pillows, pillows! maybe a quilt for the back of the couch . Endless number of ideas come to mind . Thanks for the chance to win.

  4. Ann says:

    I am a big fan of Denyse's patterns. I would love to make A point me pattern quilt for my bed.

  5. Elizabeth says:

    Every time I look at your website I wish that I lived close enough to visit your shop. So many beautiful things!

  6. Katie says:

    I would make quilts for my two little girls! One would surely have lots of yellow in it, as that's what my 3-year-old is obsessed with currently. She has me knitting all kinds of yellow sweaters!

  7. Tine says:

    If I win, I would love to make my first quilt for my babygirl Ella. I love to knit and sew and since we live in an old farmhouse and so I think it's about time I get started on my first quilt to fit her bedroom.

  8. Brittany says:

    Beautiful quilts! I would love to win this. Thank you for such a fabulous giveaway.

  9. peanut says:

    I would make a new quilt for our bed … and another then one for the spare bed … and then probably one for the couch in the living room. Desyse's designs are always so fresh and appealing; it would be hard to settle on just one.

  10. Jennifer says:

    The book looks awesome! I am totally into making quilts right now and would love to make one for my daughter's room! Thanks so much!

  11. Kim says:

    Since I have been selecting projects to complete in Denyse's first book, I would continue along my journey with this one that I've been anxiously waiting for! And to make things with her fabric collections is such fun, too!! It seems an oxymoron for things to be vintage modern and yet, Denyse epitomizes exactly that!

  12. Mackenzie says:

    I just finished my first quilt… and I would love to step up to something a little more sophisticated for my second quilt! I do admire what I've seen of Denyse Schmidt's designs.

  13. Lyn says:

    I am a beginner quilter and have been admiring Denyse's patterns…the Quilts and the book are just gorgeous! I hope to be able to make one of these some day soon!!

  14. Lele says:

    Just drooling here over how lovely these are… I'd start with some pillows for quick gratification and move on to wall hangings and quilts. Love!

  15. Brenda says:

    As a new quilter, I'd love to get my hands on more fabric for more new projects!

  16. Adrianne says:

    Quilts! I would make quilts!! Maybe something with repeating triangles… maybe point me with grey instead of white? Oh that would be lovely. Yes, that. I would make that.

  17. Susan says:

    Oh how I love Denyse Schmidt's work! I would make a quilt for my daughter to adorn the big-girl-bed she's soon to get.

  18. Marta G.G. says:

    I'd make a quilt for my son's bedroom. I think he'd love it!

  19. Kristin Schumacher says:

    A quilt for my mum!

  20. Kate says:

    Oh how I wish I could come to the store but finances prevent a last-minute hop across the pond (!) so I must be satisfied with entering your lovely competition instead. I would make my daughter a summer dress with the fabric and I would take inspiration from the books to make a quilt for our sitting room.

  21. nina says:

    ooh..I love Denise's designs – I hope I win!

  22. Lisa says:

    I would ask my mother-in-law to work with me to make quilts for each of her granddaughters!

  23. Katie says:

    Ooo I'd make quilts for everyone!! Starting with one for my young cousin's upcoming wedding. Thanks so much for the opportunity to enter and for sharing this book :)

  24. Hilde says:

    I would make my first quilt!! I'm due to give birth to my little son in 7 weeks, so hopefully I would get it finished on time! Thank you for the possibility to win these great prices!

  25. deb says:

    Hard to decide… all beautiful, but definitely one of them… all decides how the fabrics "feel," what they call out to become…..

  26. jen says:

    Ummmm- A Quilt of Course! or maybe a couple little dresses for some bears or animals. Her patterns and fabrics are always my favorite.

  27. Persis says:

    Beautiful! fabrics. (I'm still hoarding the original flea market fancy. ) I'd make a quilt.

  28. Shirley says:

    I would make a big-girl quilt for my nearly 11-year-old! Thanks.

  29. Beatriz Velez says:

    These are beautiful, truthfully I don't know where I would start! I know my sister and I could turn this into quality sister bonding time with all these wonderful designs! My first choice though would be to make a quilt for my grandmother :)

  30. Kim says:

    I love the Hope Valley Collection! I think a granny square quilt would look just fabulous with those fabrics. I also love that orange/red curved pieced quilt. I am definitely putting that on my to-do list.

  31. Pia says:

    Many of my friends have recently had babies or are expecting. I would make baby quilts to share. This also suits my beginning quilting skills. Wish I still lived in NYC and could attend the event.

  32. Amy says:

    I would totally make a mini quilt/wall hanging. Or two.
    Add more color to my walls!

  33. Angie says:

    I want to make the "Ocean Waves" quilt right now! DS quilts are always as stunning and inspirational as her fabric is beautiful. Love it all.

  34. Crystal says:

    Oh what a lovely giveaway! I've been lusting after this book since it was announced! If I won I would finally make a quilt for myself :-) And share the winnings with my guild friends!

  35. Monica says:

    I would make a beautiful quilt for my baby boy's upcoming first birthday.

  36. Rosario Benavides says:

    Wow! So sorry I cannot make Denyse's actual presentation today but if I won the giveaway I would definitely make make a pair of quilts for my eight-year old's room as we are going to exchange her double bed for two twin beds. There are many beautiful patterns in this new book!

  37. Leah Hill says:

    I love the proverbial quilt pattern and would love to make that. Actually, I love all the patterns and would be happy with any of them.

  38. Beth in Seattle says:

    Wish I could be there!

  39. Kathy says:

    I love the fresh, modern approach. If I was lucky enough to win this great prize, I'd make a quilt for our guest room. At the moment, it's lacking warmth, personality, and color. It would be a nice surprise for our visiting family and friends.

  40. Agnes M. Stadler says:

    All of you at Purl Soho – enjoy the event, I am sure it'll be a huge success. I am staging our house, hoping for a swift sale. What better eye-candy than a Denyse Schmidt modern quilt on the sofa?! I'd get down on sewing that quilt right away, yes siree…!!

  41. Lisa McGriff says:

    I would use this to make a lap quilt for my mom. I want to make her one for Christmas so this would be an AWESOME prize!

  42. lettergirl says:

    The first quilts I ever made are still on my kids' beds five years later…I would love to update them with some new quilts inspired by Denyse. I can't wait to get my hands on that book!

  43. Sofie says:

    I would love to create a beautiful classy quilt for my bed and gifts for the holidays.

  44. MDwyer says:

    What would I make? Quilts of course! I would love to make "hills -n- hollers" in a yellow and gray colorway.

  45. Jolene says:

    I wish I could be there for this. I would love to make some quilts for my 2 little boys.

  46. purl bee says:

    Thank you everyone so much for participating in the online giveaway! It is now closed. We've picked a winner, Emily, who is planning on making some Log Cabin Blocks with her fabric!

    Thanks again for your excitement and enthusiasm about this wonderful book!

    - Molly

    A quilt or two, of course!! :-)
