i would love the Tundra swan! i think a lovely card design to make would be a humming bird because they are so sweet and pretty!
3/12/2013 11:26:24 am
I love your black capped chickadee pattern! So pretty.
3/8/2013 12:35:30 am
Those cards are so beautiful!!! My wife's birthday is tomorrow and I am looking for a present for her; she absolutely adores ravens and sewing. If I win, I would love to give her the Raven Moon pattern.
3/8/2013 12:40:30 am
Suggestion: the icy, pastel-y days when there is a lot of ice fog (is that even doable?). If that won't work, how about a bunch of AK berries! Blue, straw,rasp,etc :)
3/8/2013 01:09:00 am
I don't know if you've done watermelon before, but I love watermelon. You could even sew on little black beads for the seeds. That is my suggestion.
3/8/2013 01:37:05 am
I love the chickadees! My idea for a card is for spring...a progression first a seed, then a sprout, then a plant, then a flower...
3/8/2013 02:28:38 am
I would like the sandhill crane and I think you should create a puffin card.
3/8/2013 03:13:49 am
Love to win the chickadee. How about a pileated woodpecker? Their bright red head is such a contrast.
3/8/2013 03:42:45 am
Hi Beret! Love your quilts and cards! Looks like you got your Mom's artist talent! I would love to win the chickadees. My suggestion, of course, would be a moose--or two, or three or??? :) I also wish you would come and teach a class here at North House sometime when you come back to visit. This looks like fun, and now that I'm retired, I might have time to give it a try...
3/8/2013 04:19:49 am
Love the Black capped chickadee! A beautiful cardinal , love them and watching them on my birdfeeder outside of kitchen window.
3/8/2013 04:41:45 am
I think you should make one of the aurora with maybe a raven silhouette against it. That would be cool. Maybe little sleeping bags on the ground. Would be a good seller at CHS. I would like the one with the little bird houses. Love them all.
3/8/2013 04:54:08 am
Thanks for a chance to win the chickadee! I was surprised there are no moose in your collection - I hope you do one soon.
3/8/2013 05:20:41 am
I'm a oceanologist and my favorite sea animals are dolphins and squid. I particularly like squid and this they are beautiful creatures. I'm a bit of an amateur sewer, and I'm sure sewing a squid would be difficult, but I would love it. I searched for a sea animal pattern, but didn't see any. The snowman one was my favorite though.
3/8/2013 05:32:16 am
I'm an interior decorator and your works of art would be marvelous framed on any wall. Though I believe there couldn't be any more worthy designs, I, as a designer feel diamonds could be portrayed with fabric quite well.
3/8/2013 05:37:21 am
Suggestion: a colorful dog. I love bright and colorful animals and have six dogs; two chihuahuas and four shih tzus.
3/8/2013 09:06:03 am
Suggestions - a blue heron, frogs, dragonflies. As for your current patterns, I like the Chickadee or the the Sandhill crane. Thanks for a fun giveaway opportunity!
3/8/2013 03:08:41 pm
I think it would be nice to see a calla lily. It could be used as a sympathy or wedding card.
3/8/2013 05:27:44 pm
LOVE the LEt it Snow snowman card - cute!!! Thanks for the giveaway!!! Beautiful work.
3/8/2013 06:16:15 pm
I think an ocean seascape would make a nice card. I would like the chickadee pattern if I was lucky enough to win Beautiful cards.
3/8/2013 06:34:28 pm
I'd love your downloadable patterns. I'd love to see patterns of cats and dogs, as well. I would like the Wild Flower II pattern if I'm lucky enough to win.
3/8/2013 07:53:12 pm
Penguins or owls. Of the ones shown, I like Milepost
3/8/2013 08:16:23 pm
Love the Snowman one .. I follow you on Pinterest.. A suggestion: cute piggies .. Thanks for opportunity to win, enjoy your blog as well.
The chicadee is adorable. My cat has a different "meow" for chicadees than any other bird. I think the direct translation is "those damn birds I can't ever catch". I love dragonflies. Of course, I hear that the mosquitos in Alaska are as big as dragonflies...so that's an idea too.
3/8/2013 09:15:00 pm
How about a fox for cards? I checked out your patterns and all are lovely -- the chickadee is my very favorite.
3/8/2013 09:38:46 pm
What a great combination. So far I make quilts and I make cards but I love seeing them combined. I'd love to have the chickadee and would like to see you make a gold finch or a tuxedo cat (black and white)
3/8/2013 09:40:05 pm
I think it would be nice to see a series of trees in varying seasons, I always love the contrasts of winter to summer or spring. I love that little chickadee and will have to buy it if I am not lucky enough to win it.
3/8/2013 10:05:38 pm
I'd love to win one of the chickadees.
3/8/2013 10:34:32 pm
If I won I would choose the whimsical hearts pattern. suggestion is for a card with a dachshund doggie on it.
3/8/2013 10:57:56 pm
I think a ptarmingen card is long overdue! And if I win, I still would like the blueberry card!
3/8/2013 11:30:08 pm
I love the tundra swan pattern. it is so pretty and lifelike. thanks.
3/8/2013 11:50:42 pm
I too, like the tundra swan. I'd like to see some more birds. How about a woodpecker or an owl?
3/9/2013 12:11:17 am
I would love the chickadee card/pattern. My suggestion is since you do birds so well, a cardinal, blue jay or a peacock.. email@example.com
3/9/2013 12:38:51 am
Penguins are always fun. I love your chickadees pattern.
3/9/2013 01:33:32 am
I love your Tundra Swan! This is probably a little weird but I grew up in Southeast AK and I really miss spring skunk cabbage. So that's my suggestion. Thanks for the chance!
3/9/2013 02:59:23 am
How about a cute easter chick? same pattern different colors.
3/9/2013 03:18:30 am
I am crazy about your chickadees! We have been watching birds out our front window and have just this week had chickadees visit our feeder. They are so tiny and sweet. I think a painted bunting would be a gorgeous bird to put on a card- they are outrageous displays of God's handiwork!
3/9/2013 03:18:54 am
Love your cards, what a great idea!
3/9/2013 05:57:23 am
I think quilts with wildflowers would be lovely. My favorite pattern is the Black Capped Chickadee. I would love to make this for my granddaughter... to whom I refer as 'my little chickadee'! She is 4 years old.
3/9/2013 06:10:14 am
These are absolutely gorgeous. If I win, I would love to receive the chickadee. Other suggestions, a cardinal or a steam engine for the guys.
3/9/2013 07:05:06 am
I would love to win "For The Birds" Thanks and Idea for a new card is one that I just made for my Uncle who had to have heart surgery. I cut out a heart then cut it up then sewed it back together he loved it and so did all his nurses and guest.
3/9/2013 07:22:17 am
I have seen your patterns...........somewhere before...........but am bookmarking you now, so I dont lsoe you again!
3/9/2013 10:30:56 am
Your cards are beautiful. I love the Wildflower 1 pattern and also the chickadee. I would love to see a card with a nuthatch on it, or a cardinal. Also, coneflowers would make beautiful cards.
3/9/2013 11:53:38 am
i like milepost pattern
3/9/2013 11:54:59 am
i really like the milepost one,.
3/9/2013 11:57:39 am
Maybe you could make a pattern of a pelican or a flamingo. A cedar waxwing is a pretty bird, a cardinal and there is a blue bird who is unbelievably beautiful with a bit of orange, but I don't know its name. I love the sandhill crane pattern amongst many others.
3/9/2013 12:40:10 pm
I think that a red cardinal would be beautiful!
3/9/2013 02:08:40 pm
Wow! I have never tried quilted cards before. Yours are amazing. They all are so beautiful, but the birds are my favorite. I think a hummingbird would be really nice. Thanks for the chance to win.
3/9/2013 02:12:48 pm
Oooops! I got so excited about your patterns I forgot to tell you which one I would like.....the chickadee please. Thanks again for the chance and the inspiration.
3/9/2013 02:25:13 pm
Love that birdie.....ooooo I'd love to win!
3/9/2013 06:55:16 pm
Love, love, love your "Tundra Swan."
3/9/2013 08:28:07 pm
I love the chicadee!
3/9/2013 09:42:32 pm
Love the blaccapped chickadee. Thanks for sharing and for the opportunity on the draw. firstname.lastname@example.org
Kathy @ Kwilter Pleasures
3/9/2013 10:25:28 pm
I love the chickadee...how bout an owl?
3/9/2013 11:50:55 pm
I'd like the chickadee
3/10/2013 12:30:27 am
My choice would be the Tundra Swan. What about doing a Cardinal?
3/10/2013 04:33:18 am
I love the chickadees!!! I also love owls-maybe try a snowy owl onthe tundra.
3/10/2013 04:45:41 am
I love love love, Raven Moon! What about an Inushuk?
3/10/2013 05:05:46 am
Love the sandhill crane pattern. I would suggest more flying birds, or raven patterns, That's what I like at least! Thanks.
3/10/2013 05:19:29 am
My favorite is still the chicadee pattern. I would suggest some whimsical or funny animals. I like making cards for get well cards or thinking of you cards and a funny smiling animal always makes me laugh.
3/10/2013 06:12:10 am
I like the three leaves pattern. I think a pattern with sassafras leaves would be neat. Do you know that each tree has three kinds of leaves?
3/10/2013 07:02:43 am
Chickadees over swans, but it's close. We were seeing tons of those pretty little Bohemian Waxwings flitting all around Anchorage - until this latest snowstorm!
3/10/2013 08:52:16 am
I like Raven Moon. for ideas - Dog sled team in honor of the Iditarod. Or for a completely different idea - anything with a kitty cat. thanks!
3/10/2013 09:46:51 am
I would like to win the whimsy heart
3/10/2013 09:48:12 am
A new idea...do I get a copy of the pattern if you use it? ;) How about a cardinal? They are so striking and I love birch trees, like you use in the chickadee pattern.
3/10/2013 10:19:32 am
Try a moose! We have lots of those here in Newfoundland, Canada. Your patters are quite nice.
3/10/2013 02:55:06 pm
I love the idea of quilting used on a card. I have been cross-stitching on cards for years and never thought of quilt! Great Idea! I think that a male mallard duck would be beautiful!
3/10/2013 02:59:33 pm
I would love to see some CAT designs, and also some other birds! Your chickadee is adorable, and I think 2 good additions would be a bluebird and a robin. My favorite pattern is the Tundra Swan! (BTW, I cannot figure out any way to "follow" your blog?)
I haven't figured that out either, that's why it's not apparent...:-) It seems like a basic thing for a blog to do, but so far I haven't found how it works...the best idea I have is to 'like' my facebook page if yoiu are on facebook, my blog posts will show up in your feed there...There is also the RSS feed option, but I'm not too familiar with that either...
3/10/2013 09:05:16 pm
I am in awe of your quilts and cards. I love this idea so much. I love the mini quilts you made too.
3/11/2013 01:49:36 am
My suggestion is a pattern for a cat. My choice of pattern is the black-capped chickadee. It's adorable. Thanks for the offer.
3/11/2013 01:49:55 am
I love the chicadee the best. Another idea for a card would be some different bird cards. They are always appealing to me.
3/11/2013 04:35:40 am
How about designing a pattern of different colored ribbons to support cancer awareness?
3/11/2013 06:49:40 am
My suggestion would be an Owl. I would like the Wildflowers III pattern. Thanks for being generous!
3/11/2013 07:41:23 am
Rolling hills in autumn. Would loe the chickadee.
3/11/2013 09:25:04 am
I'm so glad to see that you have a pattern featuring a raven! Ravens and crows are my favorite bird so of course that's the one I'd go for.
3/11/2013 09:51:42 am
A needle and thread. For the new pattern. :)
3/11/2013 11:17:32 am
I would like to see you do a dragonfly! and if I could choose, I would choose the chickadee.
3/11/2013 12:10:53 pm
I like your three leaves and the Sandhills crane, but I really like them all.
3/11/2013 01:40:27 pm
I love your cards. I really liked the Chickadee, and the milepost. For a suggestion a spring lamb, because my granddaughter is crazy about lambs
3/11/2013 01:49:58 pm
I love the chickadee pattern and would love a chance to win it.
3/11/2013 02:33:06 pm
vielen Dank für die schöne Verlosung...ich würde mir eine Karte mit Nähutensilien oder Kinderspielzeug vorstellen
3/11/2013 03:24:11 pm
Oh my, it's been 28 years since my last German class....:-) I could read most words, and with a little internet research came up with sewing supplies and toys?
3/11/2013 06:05:44 pm
sandhill crane or whimsical heart I would love either. I'm from Nebraska and we had a sick crane stay in one of our trees for three days. The a guy from the state wildife department came and looked at it through binoculars nearly the whole time (and stayed at our house). This was in the 70s. It finally flew away. maybe a Vespa
3/12/2013 01:20:47 am
I LOVE the chickadee cards! An idea for you is Trees. I also love the For the Birds pattern. Thank you!!
3/12/2013 02:35:46 am
My suggestion for a new design is an old-fashioned Schwinn bicycle - just like the one on which I learned to ride a bike.
3/12/2013 02:36:33 am
I would love to win your chickadee - very cute!
3/12/2013 04:19:33 am
Still love those chickadees. Another idea for your cards that I would like to see would be sunsets.
3/12/2013 06:02:53 am
I like the Tundra Swan the best, and that would be my pick for a pattern! you do lovely work. My suggestion would be do some types of landscape, maybe a golf hole?
Betty Ann from Florida
3/12/2013 10:36:14 am
Your cards are lovely. I'm in a card swap this month and one of your patterns would be most welcome. email@example.com
3/12/2013 10:44:15 am
Your patterns are lovely. My suggestion would be fireweed (I think- it was a long time ago I was in Alaska). I love your little chickadee. Thanks for participating in the Quilters' Blog Hop Party.
3/12/2013 10:46:57 am
I think that a Cherry Blossom tree would be beautiful! :)
3/12/2013 11:46:17 am
Saw that seals were already suggested so another suggestion is Alaskian Butterflies.
3/12/2013 11:12:18 am
I would choose the 3 Leaves pattern if I win.
3/12/2013 04:22:06 pm
how about making my favorite bird, a puffin on a card pattern?! love all your patterns, and would love to win the sandhill crane card pattern.
3/12/2013 10:16:34 pm
Todays Suggestion Is One To Do With Whales, When My Friend Visited Alaska And Came Home That WasWhat She Talked About Thr Most. My Pattern Pick Os The Chickadeee. Thank You ForThe chances
3/13/2013 12:39:32 am
An Owl would be nice! I Love your Cards! And I LOVE Birds. I would love to have your Sandhill Crane Card! Thanks for sharing your site and having this Great Giveaway!
3/13/2013 03:24:36 am
I like the chicadee. I would suggest a mountain scene.
3/13/2013 04:14:17 am
I think that Canadian Geese would be beautiful!
3/13/2013 04:36:30 am
I love your little chickadees! I have not been here before so I'm glad I found you and I think your cards are wonderful. To answer your questions: I would choose the chickadees and would suggest Carrots. I really don't have a good reason other than I would think it would be fun to receive a card with fabric carrots on it.
3/13/2013 08:39:56 am
I'd love to win the Raven Moon design.
3/13/2013 03:31:18 pm

3/13/2013 04:21:32 pm
I love the black capped chickadee!
3/13/2013 07:20:25 pm
My Grandson's Suggestion Is Turtles, He LoVes All Types Real, Toy, Cartooned....
3/14/2013 01:59:38 am
I haven't made patterns for those so far, I'd like to eventually. The chickadee ones are Kindle carriers, but I got a little discouraged from making those when the e-reader companies started making them in so many different sizes....
3/14/2013 04:49:43 am
For my last entry, I think that a bald eagle would be neat! Even though it would be most appropriate for the Fourth of July, it could be used year round if the background was designed differently. I would love to win the Chickadee pattern.
3/14/2013 12:02:34 pm
LAST DAY!! Better late than never :)
3/14/2013 01:41:30 pm

3/14/2013 03:18:09 pm
