Strawberries and Tea - Launch and Giveaways

 Competition is Closed
See Winners Here


Wow - I am really happy to be launching my latest quilt pattern - Strawberries and Tea.  I think this is the fastest quilt I have ever designed, pieced, quilted and written the pattern for:  3 weeks tops!!  A big effort!! (especially as it is in reality two patterns - remember the bonus pattern I have been talking about??)

Anyway, without any further ado:

Strawberries and Tea Cot Quilt




 and the bonus pattern


Strawberries and Tea Tote Bag



  
To celebrate the launch of these two patterns I am running a giveaway, starting today and ending on Saturday May 19th.  There are three great prizes for three lucky winners.

Prize One
A pdf copy of the Strawberries and Tea Cot Quilt Pattern
and
A complete fabric kit (including binding) to make the quilt top



Prize Two

A pdf copy of the Strawberries and Tea Tote Bag Pattern
and
A complete fabric kit to make the Tote Bag



Prize Three
 A pdf copy of the Strawberries and Tea Cot Quilt Pattern
and
A pdf copy of the Strawberries and Tea Tote Bag Pattern



How To Be In It To Win It

It is simple to be eligible to win. For one entry just become a follower (you can choose Google Friends, Bloglovin', Linky Followers, rss or email - if you choose email, the best way not to miss any posts!!, just remember you have to verify your subscription with the return email notice).  Leave me a comment letting me know.  If you are already a follower (thanks!) just leave me a comment telling me so.

For a second chance to win jump over to my Facebook Fan Page and 'like' me.  Leave a separate comment telling me I have a new fan.  Again, if you are already a fan (thanks!), just leave me a comment saying so.

At the end of the giveaway the winners will be chosen by my special random number generators.  Please make sure you have enabled your return email notifications or leave me your email so I can let you know you are a winner.

So, I hope my patterns appeal to you and you are the lucky ones!!!

If you have decided you never even win chook raffles and want to buy the pattern/s straight away (!), I am running a special introductory offer till the end of May.


      Buy the pdf patterns for either the Cot Quilt (US$8.50) or the Tote Bag (US$6.00) at their regular price or buy both for US$11.00 - a saving of over 20%.  You can find them in my Etsy shop and my Craftsy shop.


Until next time, happy quilting, knitting, sewing, crafting ....
