Giveaway Time!

UPDATE: The winners have been announced below: Nancy, Billie and Joke. Ladies, if you haven't heard from me, please make contact so I can arrange to have your prizes sent out to you :)

What a fabulous weekend, I'm spending it at home, quilting of course! And you? How about leaving a comment to go into the draw to win one of these prizes? It's open worldwide and winners will be drawn at random. And this is just the start, tomorrow courtesy of The Quilt Show there'll be more opportunities and fun to be had, so be sure to come back.

Today, The Fat Quarter Shop, Green Fairy Quilts and Yours Truly want to get the weekend off to the right kind of start with some lovely giveaways to celebrate this weekend and our love of quilting. 

UPDATE: The jelly roll has been won by Nancy! 



Who doesn't love a Jelly Roll?

This one's on me. I'm giving one lucky reader the chance to win this favorite book of mine, shipped straight to you from the Book Depository. This is one title I'm always recommending and this weekend I'm happy to share my love of this title with another quilter. For everything you need to know about applique, this book is my most recommended resource. 

UPDATE: The book has been won by Joke!

  88. It's a busy weekend here! I'm taking part in a 26.5km walk to raise funds for research and treatment of childhood cancer. It's on Sunday and starts at the Sydney Opera House and finishes in Manly. So far I've raised over $400 in sponsorships from friends. I'd rather be quilting but one day away from my machine to give the hope of a lifetime to another is worth it. Maybe one day someone will come up with a quilt-a-thon instead!
