It is my blogaversary… and someone will get the pressies

One year ago I posted my first ever blog post.  I can not believe that 132 posts later I am still going… and absolutely loving it.   To celebrate this milestone, and to say thanks to you all for your kinds words and support over the last 12 months,  I thought I would put together a package of my favorite things as a giveaway to one lucky reader.

First up is my favorite quilting book.. Sunday Morning Quilts by Cheryl Atkins and Amanda Jean Nyberg.  I love so many of the quilts and patterns in this book.

This is the book that introduced me to low volume quilts… and inspired this log cabin quilt in particular.

Also is in the package is an introduction kit for making 1 inch hexagons –  a packet of 25 plastic templates and a packet of 2 1/2 inch squares of the gorgeous Waterfront Park by Violet Craft.


This packet will help you make a start on your own English Paper Pieced (EPP) crazy… I warn you it is addictive.  This part of the giveaway is in honor of my loud obnoxious hexagon work in progress.

And what prize package would be complete without some fabric.  First up is a selection of 10 fat quarters.  Every scrap quilter knows the value of the fat quarter, it is one of the staples of our stash and the best way to get more variety and colour in your collection.

There is of course some of my stash staples… Lizzy House’s “Pearl Bracelets”, a little “Mirror Ball” by Michael Miller and some beloved black and white fabric.

Someone will win all this and more…

So how do I enter I hear you ask… just leave a comment on this post.  One lucky winner will be picked next Sunday (27th October) and the prize will be dispatched to which ever part of the world the winner is from.
