Sew Mama Sew - Giveaway Day!!!

I'm joining in with Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day (Week) this year.


Welcome to all visitors .... new and not-so-new!!!

If you are a regular PatchAndi visitor, then you know all about YouPatch but for those of you visiting for the first time, my husband and I are launching a new website for quilters that enables you to easily create your own pixelated quilt patterns.

As well as being able to make your own pixel quilt patterns, you will be able to buy patterns created by me!!

Given the time of year, I am offering readers of this post a chance to win our new pixel quilt pattern - 'Santa'. The pattern is in PDF format and will be emailed to the winning commenter. (International entries welcome).

Santa pattern cover


The PDF pattern comes complete with fabric yardage and cutting and piecing instructions.

To win this cute Christmassy quilt pattern: just leave a comment telling me what other pre-made quilt patterns you think YouPatch should be offering.

A winner will be chosen at random on Saturday December 14th at midday (Melbourne time).

I hope you enjoyed your visit and encourage you to visit lots of new blogs this week. Who knows what you might win?

EDIT: This post is now closed for comments. Winners have been drawn and notified. Thanks to everyone who commented!! Andi :-)

I guess I'm first! I'd love to see quilt patterns of famous scientists...Einstein, Curie, Sagan, etc. Yes, I am a geek. :-) Thanks for the chance!!

I've read about your website already, but this is my first visit here. I'd love to see some Little Ponies, my kids love them. Thanks for the chance!

babiesdoc said...

I don't know what pattern could compete with santa

but a reindeer for christmas or a large flower(s) for spring would be something I would make

Angela Bullard said...

Unfortunately I have no suggestions for you :( but I love the idea and can't wait to go browse your shop!

Gill said...

I'm in England so maybe kings and queens???

Terry@ a quilting blog said...

How about a Christmas Tree or Snowman? Thanks for the chance :)

Maybe different kinds of flowers,or an alphabet.

I've seen a Super Mario Bros. inspired quilt that was great. Old Nintendo video games would be great to see!

joske whiteside said...

A classic teddy bear would be good!

Darlington Delights said...

Thanks for sharing. How about other holiday icons like cupid and jack frost and the easter bunny, etc. Just a thought. Personally, I love santa! kmcassie@gmail.com

ARTwendy ... said...

Hey Andi ... great idea! Loving seeing your work developing! I'd love to see a large Christmas Wreath ... you know all green & lush with some holly and a big red bow? .... some bright warms greens in the background .... xo

I would say snowmen

Sallie said...

Audrey Hepburn. Thanks for the giveaway and Merry Christmas!

Tammy said...

Thanks for the chance to enter. How about a breast cancer awareness ribbon.

Brooke @ little b quilts said...

How cool! I love the Santa. I'm with another commenter...a gingerbread man would be pretty sweet!

Jenny said...

That's too cute, and it doesn't look too time consuming. I'm new to you, but I'm going to check you out because I've been asked to make a quilt for my sister and my idea was a pixelated quilt. To answer your question ... hmmm ... maybe a collection of flowers?

Jill R. said...

I think patterns with favorite kid's cartoon characters would be fun. I can see these pixelated quilts being a hit with kiddos.

Brianna said...

I would love to make a pixelated Bambi! I can't wait for your website to be launched.

Angelia Lanouette said...

This Santa is great! I would love to see what you can do with some Halloween designs. Thank you for sharing!

I'd like any Christmas character - Snowman, Elf, Reindeer, or other holiday themes too - easter bunny, jack o'lantern, etc.

Needled Mom said...

That is so cute. I'd love to see an Easter quilt.

Material Girl said...

I made a baby quilt that was an animal, raccoon, that was all squares like a pixelated. I think kids quilt and holidays would be the most appealing unless you are makng "Monet" quilts.

Julie said...

This is amazing!!!! I am not sure I have the band width to even cut something like this.

Amy's Crafty Shenanigans said...

Oh wow that is cool! I need a pixelated quilt in my life!!!! Maybe Chubaka - he'd look good in pixels!

Jodie Tawn said...

I think animals would make good patterns

Maryse said...

I would love to see a Bob Dylan one, I would certainly make it for my husband.

Jayne said...

How about a hershey Kiss?! LOL I'm eating them right now...

Beverly said...

I would love to see a candy cane house.

Minions would be awesome but there's probably copyright laws or something. :(

Unicorns would be fun!

stephmabry said...

Anything video game themed would be big at my house! :)

Thanks for the chance!

Stephanie said...

That is a great one Santa, what about Rodolph to go with him. Thanks

Beth said...

Cartoon and video game characters!

Lisa Cox said...

I'd love to see a Pac-man or Mrs. Pac-man pattern.

Victoria said...

I love this pattern! I think that specific dog breeds would sell well. My dogs are lovely and loving mutts but I know someone who is crazy for scotties and someone else nuts for their we sties.

Reb Thack said...

If I think about using this cool pattern maker with my kids in mind, I'd suggest Star Wars characters, and science type items - DNA, microscope, planets, etc.

Thanks!

Kathy Davis said...

Would love a pattern of my husband's German Shorthaired Pointer. Quail hunters would love it. Thanks, Kathy

Classic cars, trucks and motorcycles are some things I would love patterns for and can not find anywhere. Thank you for the chance to get my hands on this darling santa

Chirpy said...

You should do ALL the sororities mascots...megs was Chi Omega-there isn't a owl we don't have, and Nicole was Tri Delta, dolphins! Fund raisers with something like this....amazing! Love it. I'm a Santa collector, Christmas Eve Birthday! Ho Ho Ho

Crystal Hendrix said...

Awesome quilt idea!! I think maybe some NFL trade mark would be nice if you could. My husband loves the Raiders so I think that would be a fun quilt to make, their logo. Thanks for doing the giveaway!

Kelly G said...

EEK - I have just discovered your blog through the SMS giveaway day. All I can say is that I am in total love.
Probably not something that you would do - but I would love a cow face. I am making a simple square patch quilt for the lounge with just different cow prints etc and this would be stunning on the front!

leighdavenport.net said...

Oh wow, that's awesome. Clearly I need a pixelated Tardis quilt in my life.

Vivian said...

I think birds or any animal would be great.

Lisa said...

Elvis! Hehe. Maybe a wreath?

allierae said...

I'd suggest landscape patterns - mountains, trees, etc

Ramona said...

I would love to see Audrey Hepburn. My daughter is a huge fan.

nicolesender said...

I'd prefer birds & flowers.

Katie Wells said...

I would have to say Hearts for valetines they would be great I am going now to follow you blog website

Debbie said...

Of course you should offer other Holiday patterns like for Halloween, Memorial Day, Valentine's Day and several designs for each holiday. Some people like Christmas trees or snowmen for the Christmas season. It would be great if you include wall hanging sizes. What a great idea for a new business. Much success to your and your husband

Leslie said...

Cute! Maybe some kids characters like my little pony or daniel tiger.

DebraKay Neiman said...

Dog faces...
I am happy to follow you on FB. Merry Christmas from Oklahoma, USA. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

Julie-Katie H said...

Letters of the alphabet! For instance I might warn to get a "C" since that's my daughters first initial.

Jordan said...
