Yea! I am doing my first giveaway on my blog, this is the best part of blogging! I love it! So, my giveaways are three Quilt Diva prize packs which each include a Quilt Diva fat quarter stack, a Quilt Diva pattern, a pack of Quilt Diva notecards, and a magnetic Quilt Diva notepad. To enter, simply post a comment to this entry and tell me either why you are a Quilt Diva (for example, you have made quilts for all of your 37 grandchildren) or an idea that you would like to see me design (for example, monkeys playing guitars). I will pick three comments at random and will announce the winners on Friday June 19th so be sure to check back then to see if you have won!

  1. Amy, I just love all your patterns and have made several of them. As a long time quilter, Amy Bradley designs are something I cannot do without!!! Keep up the good work!
    Have you done a 'pets on parade' type design ????

  2. I love your designs Amy, especially the dogs! I would like to see some bird patterns, like a whole sampler of cheerful backyard birds. Add a cat with a gleam in his eye and that would be really fun.

    Thanks for sharing your talent!

  3. I love your designs especially the dogs. I am a grandma who babysits my 4 year old granddaughter who wants to be a vet.
    How about grandma dogs.

  4. Am I a Diva? I don't have 37 grandchildren, only like dogs and have a stash that is completely out of control. I could care less about house cleaning, love to look at patterns and have three sewing machines, a serger and a Mega Qulter. If I'm not one, I think I'm well on my way. Keep up the good work. You bring a smile to any day: good, bad or so-so.

  5. Amy, I want to make your Dazzling Dogs quilt as a BOM next year. I plan to leave one dog out and put Sarge in the center!!!! Won't that be cute! I have a bunch of your other patterns too that I'm going to make for my sewing room someday! I wish I could make them all! Thanks for such great and fun patterns!

    I am working on your Seasoned Quilter and having lots of fun making it. I think I am a Quilt diva because I have made 3 quilts, 3 baby blankets, 1 baby quilt, 8 sets of pillows, and I have 4 porjects going now. I have only been a quilter since October 2007.

  8. Hi Amy,
    Love you Blog. I have made several of your designs (even took a class from you a while back). I love elephants, how about some fun elephants with a different hat of every month. Don't ask me why hats, I just think it would be fun and cute.

  9. I am currently running a block of the month at Tiny Stitches in Marietta, GA using your dog patterns. We are on Prissy now with only one more month to go. We have 28 people making the dog quilt.

    Also, I just noticed that my sister Robin commented just before me. I didn't know she loves elephants - how can that be?

    I would like to see sock monkeys on a quilt. I would make it right away.

  10. Amy, I love you quilt patterns. I have Snugly Bugly and Ballerina Kitties ready and waiting to make for my 5 grandchildren, Ava 2 1/2, Noah 2, Jack 1 and Eden and Chloe both 3 months. It would be great to make a Quilting Diva for myslef.

  11. I am a Quilt Diva because I have been quilting for over 20 years and I do my own machine quilting, hand piecing, hand quilting, red work, aopplique, you name it, I try it!

  12. I love everything you create and since I am a native Kansan and a Jawhawk I guess I'd like to see some form of Jawhawks with some Sunflowers but then I love snowmen too.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love your patterns (I have the Dazzling Dog patterns)! I would love to see zoo animals like lion, tiger, monkey, giraffe, hippo, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  14. This is my second suggestion: how about dogs who are Vets and are treating other animals - birds, horses, etc.

  15. Love your patterns, but I haven't made one yet. I saw you when you visited Enid, Oklahoma earlier this year. I have more quilts than I know what to do with - in 2007 I gave one to each of my co-workers and still had plenty left. One of these days I'll have grandchildren to quilt for!!

  16. Amy,
    I love youe work and have also done several of your projects! I am an animal fanatic,also! We have a farm with horses and pigmy fainting goats! I think you could make an adorable quilt or wall hanging with the horses and small fainting goats!!! haha We have had some hysterical things happen, especially when we take the dogs out with us!! I also have grandchildren, and I think a quilt of "children of the world" would be great! Thanks, Sheilah

  17. Think that your designs are great! I think I am a Quilt Diva because I have most of your shirts. Keep the wonderful designs coming.

  18. My 2 sisters and I love to quilt-long distance.  Sister Paula lives in WI and sister Jackie lives in TN.  We send pictures back and forth.  I love seeing all the things they do.  I made the dog quilt, Dazzling Dogs, I believe.  Great fun!  I traded a friend that quilt for 2 antique butterfly quilts.  Who got the better deal???

  19. Hi, some years ago my husband gave my 2 friends and I the name of the "Sew Whats". We would get together once a week and sew and sometimes more laughter than sewing. We happened to see your Bugs quilt at a shop and we were in love. We decided to make the quilt and donate it to WAGS of Wisconsin for their annual raffle. All proceeds were to go to a child who needed a service dog. My friend Linda did all the cutting and ironing, while my field Carol and I did all the sewing. We took it to a local long arm quilter who quilted it for half price as we were donating it. We all felt that we were "Diva's" for completing the quilt. The ironic thing is a friend of Carol's won the raffle and gave it back to Carol. It came full circle and a child got a service dog. I now live in Georgia and return to Wisconsin in June to visit, hit the quilt stores and just laugh as the Sew Whats are back together. Your designs have inspired us and I hope to get the dogs done one of these days and donate it to another worthy cause. Crys Mongiat

  21. I love your designs. I have quilter's yearbook. I would love to see designs for Men's faces, hair, and beards to complete my family quilt project. Debbie Burgess

  22. Amy, your designs are just awesome! I can't wait to see more! I started quilting over 15 years ago. I got my mom started in quilting and we both now share a long arm. We love it! So I guess that makes us a diva pair!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love your designs Amy! I'd like to see some designs with a few crows in it! Holly

  24. I love mice - I haven't found too many fabrics with cute mice in them.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love your designs. I have most of them. Just finished the dogs. Made a 'cowboy' quilt using the snips and snails patterns. The little 'cowboy' loved it. Would love to have the quilt diva hanging on my sewing room wall. Like some of the other comments I would love to see some zoo animal patterns and maybe more diva designs. Keep up the good work.

  26. I am a quilt diva because I have made quilts for 2 1/2 of my 8 grandkids. The 1/2 quilt is neatly folded up in a box...somewhere, pieced and partially quilted. I promised that I would finish her quilt before she went off to college. I may be in trouble--she will be a junior in high school this fall!

    Please, I'm begging you, as a favor to readers everywhere, design something with books, bookworms, readers, bookshelves, anything. I don't mean Dick and Jane, although those are nice, and no ABC's, although those are nice too.

    I like to make things for my BookCrossing.com friends, and doorprizes for the conventions, and there are no, nada, zilch, zero reading/book related fabrics to be found!

    Please. I'm begging you!!

  27. Hi from Australia - I think I am a quilt diva because I sing when I sew and quilt - my kids close my sewing room door (hey, I'm not complaining that much, I DO have my own room - which they are envious of by the way). They always say my music is "too loud" - that's a change, isn't it???

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well, I don't know that I'm a quilt diva as I just started recently, but I sure am enjoying it! Fabric has become my new obsession.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love your patterns. I looooooooooooove fabric! Haven't made one yet though. Would love to make one for my mother so she'd feel closer to me as I moved half way across Canada and she still misses me like crazy.

    If I manage to make one for my mom, I think I'd love to make one of pigs as that's her Zodiac sign!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Diva-wanna-be, but I do so love turtles... and quilt like one (veerrryyyy slooooowly).

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love your fabric, I have made a cool quilt Diva bag for my Mother in Law and a pink quilt for my sister who had Breast cancer! Thank you for the smiles and laughter! Your fabric is FUN and cheerful!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Fun! No diva here - I'm working on quilt #1. I love earth tones, animals, and nature. Hmmm... some trees with birds?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm a huge fan of your designs - your dogs were my absolute favorite! As for upcoming quilts, how about something for the boys - airplanes, cars, trucks?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't know that I am a quilt diva, but I have made all 5 of my grandchildren at least one quilt (the older ones have more than one).

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oooh! Great giveaway! I will proudly take on the label of QUILT DIVA because I made my first quilt a year & a half ago for my daughter. I realized how great quilting + sewing could be and now have opened an online shop! My second daughter has now arrived and her fabric is all picked out. Now I just need the time to make that quilt!

    Thanks for the chance to enter!

  36. I don't know if I'm actually a "diva" or not, but I do LOVE to quilt. As a single mom and a teacher, quilting and creating are my escapes from the busyness of the world.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have not reached quilt diva status, yet. I am a virgin quilter. lol

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am a quilt diva because of my mother! Several Christmases ago, I opened a present from Mom and thought - "finally, she made me a quilt!!" Oh no, my mother had bought me fabric and signed me up for a quilt shops BOM so that I could MAKE MY OWN quilt. Sneaky lady!! Now, I am hooked! It turned out to be a pretty darn good gift! Elizabeth

    ReplyDelete
  39. Cute!

    I'm not sure if I qualify as a diva. I couldn't possibly quilt enough to make myself happy, so I instead teach others to quilt so they can help!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I am a quilt diva because I'll always try soemthing new once, if it works then I'll do it again. I machine piece, machine quilt all my own quilts. I also enjoy embroidery and applique. Terrific giveaway, thanks for the chance.

  41. Hi from Hungary! Love your patterns!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm not a quilting diva, I have only the tiniest of sewing machines and am only just learning to sew, though I did make a tiny little quilt for my son's favourite stuffed animal. I jsut wanted to say you have a lovely blog and lovely designs.. I would suggest a future pattern to be something to do with birds and trees.. maybe a few little owls but I do have a thing for owls anyway. Have a lovely day.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would love to be a quilt diva because I love making quilt tops...but get to the quilting stage and seem to come to a stop...so I would love to see you design a hooty, cooty owl quilt. I have a fettish for owls lately...and coot hooty whimsical owl would be great...hugs Khris in Oz

    ReplyDelete
  44. I believe I'm a Quilting Diva because I have 23 quilts in various stages of being completed. I would love to see a pattern with wolves. They are my passion other than quilting.

  45. I'm probably a quilt diva, I have 3 quilting machines, 2 embroidery machines and a Handi Quilter!! I can't wait to retire so I can spend more time quilting. I love your designs, they make me smile.

  46. I am not currently a quilt diva - but I aspire to be one! Someday when I am able to quit the day job, I would love to make quilts for all of my family. Your designs are wonderful and I can't wait to try them out!

  50. Make an Ultraviolet Hippopotamus! Ha, its the name of a band I knew from College.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'd like to enter for my mom - she's a quilting diva because she only has two grandchildren (so far), and yet she's already made 7 quilts for them... My niece and nephew have a favorite already, though, and they love to lay it out on the carpet, stack all the living room pillows on top, and roll around like kittens with cat-nip. Hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm a truely mental quilt diva! I made fifty two quilts for all the kids at my daughters kinder, I was only going to make two....but you know how it is..... I just couldn't stop!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I am a quilt diva because all I do is play with fabric all day long; no time for cleaning. My house has more dust bunnies than fabric (and I have a lot of fabric!). Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  54. All I can say is I will have to live to be 242 years old to finish all the projects I want to do. Now you have added about 10 more to that number. Love your designs and patterns. Love to see more "Ladies" patterns. Barbara Angles @bo19422001@yahoo.com

  55. How about a vintage travel-inspired line? You could use things like monuments and old stamps for inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  56. (my first "blog" ever...) Your Peek-a-boo book recently inspired my first machine applique quilt. You (or your team) even helped me locate skin-tone fabric (thank you!!!). I can't wait to make your adorable halloween quilt. I have a really easy suggestion - I would love to see your "barnyard buddies" logo in a quilt pattern. When I first saw the logo, I searched your website for a matching bunny quilt! Thank you again for your inspiring patterns.

  57. I WANT to be a quilt diva. So far, since December when I bought the Janome 6500, finished one queen and one king size quilt. Waiting for binding one queen size. Ongoing quilting for one queen size. That is a feat within six months when years back, took me six years to complete one hand quilted queen size and eternity for my own handquilted quilt (yet to be finished but using it for my bed cover anyway).

    ReplyDelete
  58. Okay, seeing as I'm definitely NOT a quilt diva, here's my design suggestion instead. My kids love insects such as ladybirds, bees, butterflies, dragonflies, etc. So how about a design with cartoon versions of insects which could be used for a child's quilt?

  61. I love your dog designs, and I'm currently making 8 of them as wall hangings for my boys' new room. They turn out great in bright colors! I'd love to see some "happy", bright flowers designed by ├Żou!

  62. Amy your designs are awesome!! I would love to see some designs of some funky birds - you go girl!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I am a quilt diva-- I have several unfinished quilt tops, a closet full of fabric, and I just ordered your halloween kit (so awesome!) Luckily I have a mom with a longarm machine that gets the pleasure of finishing my quilts... she loves it though and wouldn't have it any other way. As for design ideas... My 4 year old daughter is a bird every year for halloween, so I think something with flamingos, peacocks, parrots, and the like would be fun!

  65. Amy: How generous! Am I a quilt diva? Just because I have LOTS of works in progress?!

    Design ideas: wild animals--bears, mountain lions, deer.

    Thanks for doing this.

  69. Amy,
    I love your designs! I would love to see some cute goggly eyed frogs! I currently have your Halloween & Bountiful Beauties quilt started, but I just started a mystery quilt for quilt guild so they may have to wait. I think I need to hire someone to finish all of my unfinished projects or better yet I wish someone would go to work for me & clean house so I could stay home and play!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Cute stuff!!! Love your blog. Have you done any dragons v tigers? I don't know why I want someone to do something like that but I think it'd be cool.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I would love to win your quilt diva prize. I have several of your patterns from the doggies (my grandson loves it) to the ants and penguins. I have been looking at the Halloween quit. How Awesome. LOL I don't know how you come up with all your Ideas.

    Why am I a quilt diva? I recently took the center out of a quilt (a couldn't of made a mistake! There must be quilt gremlins out there.)and repaired it without removing the borders. I can't believe I didn't notice until I had it finished. It turned out great if I do say so myself.

  72. The prizes look great! I'd like to see you design rabbit plushies.

  73. I just love your patterns, your blog is a joy to read also. I love all the animals, the whimsy is bright and makes me smile.
    To be honest the monkeys playing guitar is a wonderful idea. My husband plays guitar and is in a band at church. I have made several of the animals for family that like cats and dogs.

  74. I'd like to see more schnauzers -- they're my favorite dog :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  77. I am definitely not a diva yet as I am working on my first quilt now. Design...I would love to see one with teapots and cups dancing.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I thought quilting was slow and boring. Until my mom got me started one day by helping her on a quilt. Now I am unstopable. I love to create totes and bags with quilting. I would be lucky to win your first ever giveaway.
    Thanks, Diana Matin

  79. I have been sewing and quilting for years. I have a dozen grandkids, who love me sewing and quilting for them. They like to visit me in the sewing room. It is so crazy, they are running around with spools of thread, tape measure, scissor, & anything else they can find wanting to sew. I would like to see a quilt of a crazy grandmother with her grandkids running around her with sewing supplies.

  81. Such cute designs! I am a quilt diva because I can't handle it if I'm not working on a quilt! Baby quilt, quilt for a friend, quilt for me, any quilt! I must have a quilt in the works, or things are just not "right!"

    ReplyDelete
  82. I quilt now for my 2 grandpuppies,Arnie and Jack while I wait for grandchildren!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm not sure I'm a Diva yet, but I surely aspire to be! I've purchased my first Amy Bradley pattern and can't wait toget started. My sister-in-law and I always tease our kids that we're "super models", but are more like your Bountiful Beauties. I plan to make this quilt for her birthday in August. I can't wait to get started!
    I'd love to see a pattern of fish blowing bubble gum. Maybe they can be sitting in a "school" with a teacher in the front of the classroom.

    Thanks for your great patterns! I'm sure I'll make many more of them!

  84. I am actually 27 and I run a quilting ministry at church and everyone is at least 50 :) They are so wonderful so I try and win or have fabric, tools, patterns etc donated so that I dont make them broke and we donate everything. They would get a kick out of this pattern not sure how many of them have seen it since they are all new quilters. So I hope I win!!! We have a message board for giveaways so if you have more you should join the board and post away http://www.wewouldratherbequilting.blogspot.com
