A Giveaway

A few weeks ago, I mentioned here that while cleaning up my sewing room, I realised I own way too many quilt books. Instead of letting them all sit there gathering dust, I decided to let someone else enjoy them.

Today, I would like to offer you this book:

The book contains a bunch of really fun crafts, including quilts, for the home. I purchased the book a long time ago and still haven't done anything in it yet... So I figured I probably never will.

To win the book, simply leave a comment telling me one thing you have learned this week (can be on any topic). The giveaway will be opened until Sunday, March 3 at Noon (Eastern Time). Anyone can participate - I will ship internationally - and you don't have to be a follower (although I would love for you to become one if you aren't!)

Good luck!

Izzy

  7. I am researching lino block printing and what ink to use for printing on fabric and I have learned that it will be much easier if I just silkscreen my design as there is more choice of ink for printing on fabric! Lovely book - great giveaway (my fingers are crossed!!). Oh and I am a follower :)

  8. I remember when the book came out.

    I have learned that when organising a trip include a figure for contingencies so that you don't have to ask for more money when your flight is diverted to a different airport.

  11. I have learned this week that making large quilts is getting to much for me to handle. With fibromyalgia, lifting and quilting a big quilt is just too,painful. I need to stick to wall hangings and runners

  12. I learned there are people with some strange addictions out there. Collecting fabric is not strange eating cat hair is strange. My sister-in-law said this was on a reality TV show called "My Strange Addiction".

  22. Oh, this is an exciting giveaway! I've had my eye on this book for awhile :-) One thing I've learned this week.......hmmm.........it would have to be that I need to focus on one thing at a time. I've been getting little bits done here and there, but not stopping and starting things all the time would help me get more done. I hadn't noticed how often I was going from one thing to another, instead of focusing on one task to completion.

  23. I learned that I am not as calm a person when I don't have time to sew! i think I need to take a couple of days just to do prep work for quilt piecing and wool applique so that when I have a few free minutes, I can just go into my sewing room and work!
