Yup…the dope is ME!  I accidentally bought another copy of the pattern ‘A Tisket A Tasket, Aunt Roma’s Garden Basket’ by Primitive Pieces…and I already own it!!  Oooops!  Apparently I REALLY love this basket pattern…I seem to be obsessed with basket quilts lately!!…If you have the same obsession and would like a chance to win this pattern…then leave a comment!

  3. That is a very cute pattern! I would do it in the same colors as it shows. Yes, I have often bought a pattern I already own, and even a book sometimes, but, since I don't blog, my quilter friend who lives close by is usually the one who benefits. Thank you for the opportunity to win a really nice pattern (which I don't already own)!

  4. How about if I win, we do a quilt along together?

    I absolutely love basket quilts and this would definitely be moved to the top of my "to do" list.

  5. LOL, I do the same thing with used quilt magazines I get from our local Cultural Center. I have a long list too, but can I ever remember to take it with me? Nope. I too would love to win your extra book. Smiles, it is one I know I don't have. melodylamour@yahoo.com

  6. I have a habit of purchasing cross stitch patterns more than once.... a couple of quilt books I have purchased twice... I absolutely love this A Tisket A Tasket pattern... probably for the rich prim colorway too... so please...do enter me in the giveaway! :-)

  7. These baskets are very cute and I can see why you bought it again. Yes, I've done that before, only it was a $27.00 book! YIKES!

  8. Been there, done that, do that. I am currently getting McCalls Quilting magazine double right now, geesh. But my friends are enjoying the second copy so it isn't a total loss.

    Thanks for a chance.. this would be a bucket list quilt to accomplish for me.

  12. I have done that several times. And it's not just quilt related, it also happens with groceries.
    Lovely pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I also have been known to buy the same pattern twice. I don't have this one and would love to have it. Baskets have been calling to me lately, also.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love that pattern, thank you for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think that I have two of a few things. I'm afraid to find out for sure though. It seems like some patterns are not where I remember putting them, but they are also where I remember putting them! They multiply like bunnies! I tend to buy the same fabric all the time too.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yes, I am basket-obsessed as well. I own three antique basket quilts that I purchased long before I started quilting. Thanks for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Is there anyone out there who hasn't done that before? I usually do it with books!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I join you, do it with other thins also, but don't have this pattern, so would love to win. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, yes, when I duplicate a pattern, I have a quilting friend who gets it for a gift! I too love the pattern that you double bought. I don't believe I've seen it before and would to make it. I'm always tickled when I see how many of the same projects we both love and are creating.
    Thanks for the opportunity.

  30. Oh boy would I love to win that pattern, baskets are my best friend :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yep, I have done it with books, they change the front covers and I don't recognise them, read the back and think Oh that sounds like a good book!!!...duh. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would love to try to make this quilt! I have bought the same book twice (Gwen Marston books) and frequently buy the same magazines!! My memory seems to be shot :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have caught myself buying duplicates of patterns or books more than once! However, give yourself a break on this one - it is one of the most adorably eye-catching basket quilts that I have seen! If I don't win the giveaway, I will certainly buy it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is kind of ironic. You having a giveaway today because you won my giveaway! Tomorrow I'm starting a new giveaway for fabric from the shop so, since you are lucky, stop by and enter!

  35. Hi P!
    Please could I win? I'm sure I don't have this pattern. I buy duplicates of quilting magazines, especially the really expensive ones!
    Great luck at GS, have a great weekend!
    Take care, Leslie

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes, I have bought duplicate patterns, books, and magazines. But I know that this is one that I do not own. And I really like backet quilts. Thanks for a chance at your duplicate purchase.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Not just books and magazines but fabric too. Although I don't think buying duplicates in fabric is ever a problem.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've never made a basket quilt. If I win, I'll give it a try. I don't recall buying the same item, but I know I've definitely checked out books at the library I've already read. I've actually made myself a spreadsheet to keep track of the books I've read. Thanks for the chance to win this great little book!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Have I done that? HMMMM - well yes but I like to say that it's because I liked it so much I had to have another one. LOL

    This would be a fun win, Paulette.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yes I have purchased the same book or pattern on several occasions I guess we must really really like some. I would love to win.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I,too, have bought a pattern that I already owned. In fact, I have done it more than once, so you are not alone

    ReplyDelete
  42. Well if Dopey lives at your house, Sleepy and Grouchy are at my house today! I absolutely love Lynda's patterns and would love to have add another dream to my list!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Dear Paulette,

    I can totally relate...and I've even purchased the same book or pattern multiple times! LOL!

    Love the pattern, thank you for sharing!

    Hugs,
    Elaine at the Beach

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've done that more times than I'd like to admit. I don't have this one, though.

    ReplyDelete
  45. ME TOO!!! Many times. Beautiful pattern.

    :)Carolyn

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes I'd love to make the basket quilt. I don't buy patterns or books twice because heck, I just don't get to buy things that often. I have been known to buy the same fabric twice though.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Add me to the list of multiple copies of books, magazines and sometimes patterns.

    But rarely fabric unless I decide I want more.

    I'd love to do a basket quilt and that is a fun pattern.

    Thanks Paulette.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I would love the pattern and you are not a dope. You bought a gift for a friend you have just not met yet and didn' t know you had.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Too bad but it shows that you really love it. I do it with food items. I have 4 bottles of pancake syrup in my pantry at the moment. Thanks for the giveaway Paulette.

    ReplyDelete
  50. What a lovely pattern. I've seen the basket quilts here and there and they're growing on me. I especially like the colours this one is shown in instead of the brights, makes it more autumn-ish.
    The thing in our house we buy alot of doubles of are dvds. I think we're inching our way to a dozen, when this happens we donate the duplicates to our local library so don't feel bad! Looks like there's alot of us "dopes" out there ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Please please take me!!!!! I love that quiltpattern!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I would love to try this basket craze that u are so excited about!

    ReplyDelete
  53. It's beautiful...no wonder you bought it twice! I did the same with a Christmas Attic Heirlooms santa pattern, just gave it to a friend yesterday. Would love to win!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh, yes, I have too! Of course, there HAVE been a couple times where I liked a pattern and thought I already had it but didn't, so it all evens out, right? No? I'd love to win your "mistake"--it's a beauty! I can see why you bought it again.

    ReplyDelete
  55. This is a beautiful pattern...I can see why you bought it twice! I am a magazine-a-holic...and I have often bought a magazine, brought it home, started flipping through it, and had one of those 'oh, oh' moments....nice to know that I am not alone!

    ReplyDelete
  56. A Tisket a Tasket Kathy wants the basket and if one is being honest I think some of my books, etc have soul mates too!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh me! Me! I love this pattern! And I would love to sew along with you. :-) Thanks for the chance! Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love this pattern and the colors are beautiful! I've bought the same pattern, books and fabric many times!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yep, do this all the time... and with fabric, too! :-o
    You should've called this post "The... I liked it, I reeeally liked it Give-away..."

    A gorgeous basket pattern... thanks for chance. (I especially like the piecing mixed with applique.)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Thanks for the chance to win. Love the pattern and the fabrics it's done up in. Don't feel bad about doubling up on it, it happens. KMA

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  62. sure have! twice duplicated books and gave the spare to my sis to take to her quilt club. i love your book and would like to have it! thanx for the opportunity towin it.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I do it with books all the time. It sounds so great at the store while I'm reading the back or looking at the projects, then I get it home and find out why is looked so great. I already own it!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I LOVE this pattern! Keeping my fingers (and toes!) crossed....

    ReplyDelete
  68. First of all...no calling yourself a dope! You're far from that! I do have 2 each of some things...a couple of magazines, but mostly I tend to rebuy the same fat quarter every once in awhile...
    I'm sure my husband thinks I have two of everything...but sooooo untrue...I've never even seen that basket pattern before and I'm lovin' it! I'm holding up my hand can you see me????? Toss it my direction!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  69. OH, I would love to win this pattern. I love basket blocks. I have bought the same fabric thinking I did not have it yet.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I've bought the same magazines. Halfway through I think hmm, this looks familiar...! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I have been, unintentionally, drawn to baskets lately too! I still need to say I am scarred by them but I sooo love them!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Oh pick me. I'd love that basket pattern. Yes, I have done the same thing! You're not alone! Thanks for sharing it with us.

  82. Let me join right in your I'm a dope club. A few years back, I found that I had purchased 2 copies of a Northwoods quilt book, that I loved. When I tried to give a copy to my fav quilting sister, she refused, as she had purchased 2 copies of the same book herself. We must have been shopping together. Does that show just how much impulse buying we all do? I don't have this book... Wink Wink!!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I have never made a basket yet. I would love a pattern. Yes I have bought duplicate magazines before. Thankfully the store took them back with the reciept. Silly me. Extra trip.

  84. I am guilty of such a thing too!
    Glad to help you out with this little problem.

    ReplyDelete
  85. ROFL - yep, done it too! Don't pick me though, while I love it I have no fabrics that would do it justice and it would sit in a drawer, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Ha ha, well I haven't brought the same pattern twice, but I have just got a free appliquéd basket pattern from Christine (which you featured on your blog) and I just received a pieced basket (with appliqué and stitchery) pattern from a magazine, which I was looking for and talked about on my blog! So while I already have TWO basket patterns the first is becoming a table runner and the second a bed quilt....so I NEED a wall hanging!!! Yep basket obsessed! Happy quilting, Sue SA.

    ReplyDelete
  87. oh that is a wonderful quilt pattern--I would probably buy it twice too!!!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Awesome pattern. I have bought doubles more often than I care to count. I blame it on old age.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Yep,I've been known to buy double ups on patterns,magazines,fabric etc....but I know for certain I don't have this particular pattern :) Barb.

  91. I love buying magazines and even bring some home from GUILD and find I already have it. I'd love the Pattern for the cute baskets. My only sister's name is Roma! It would make a cute Christmas gift for her...Don't tell, ok?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Magazines, fabric, yep I've doubled up on just about everything.

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I have been following your blog for a long time and really enjoy reading about your quilting and your travels. Yes, I think we have all bought a second copy of a magazine or pattern or movie.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Oh yes, I've done that, but mostly it's redwork patterns when I do. I'm a sucker for those! Thankfully, I have a good friend who loves it as much as I do so we trade patterns because she does it too. blessings, marlene

    ReplyDelete
  97. I've bought the same copy of a pattern or book too (more than once...) Thanks for the chance to win. LOVE baskets here too.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Love this pattern! Yes, I've double bought, when I hesitate and think "do I have this or not" and choose not to purchase it, I find I don't have it! I blame it on age!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Love, love, love this pattern!!!! If I don't win it, I may have to buy it. Would look beautiful on my Great Room wall. Very country for my setting and the colors would be dope!!!!! Keeping my fingers and needles crossed that I win!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  105. Oh, yes. I have bought the same book and magazine twice, one pattern three (yes, three) times, and one fabric three times! You definitely are not alone.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I love flower baskets and I am a dope, too. Two out of two isn't bad. Please come by, when you have a chance, and see my flower basket Sunbonnet Sue quilt. And follow me, too, when you have a minute. Thanks for letting us visit.

  108. Thank you for the opportunity to win your pattern. I've done the same thing and also gave my extra copy away, lol, I guess there's quite a few of us dopes! Love your blog, very inspiring, thank you. Regards Mandy Currie

    ReplyDelete
  109. That is a great pattern. I can see why you bought it twice. I think there was one pattern I bought 3 times! Either the memory is going, or I have too many projects I want to do. :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. Looks like a great pattern. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Hiya, yes, I'm guilty too. Have bought duplicate patterns, books, I even have 2 cds on a shelf downstairs right now that I didn't know I had until I started organizing them!!! Don't have many quilting patterns yet though, so this would be lovely to win. Thank you for giving us the chance. Blessed be, hugs!!!
