PLEASE NOTE, THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED. CONGRATULATIONS CHRIS, ELLEN, and JENNY!
Over the weekend, I had an idea for a friendship braid quilt that might use up some of my scraps and miscellaneous fabrics which hadn’t been matched into other project groups. Then I started looking at all of those pieces. I realized some of them had two or three prints grouped together that I thought would look really cute in a smaller project for something around the house, or a purse or pincushion, rather than cutting them up into small strips for my braid quilt. Do you make accessories or decorations with your quilting scraps? The books in this week’s giveaway have some full quilts in them, but also a lot of smaller projects for gifts, decorations, and useful items which could be a great way to utilize some of the smaller pieces (or chunks of larger pieces) in your stash.
Prize 1 includes Flower Power Patchwork by Anne-Pia Godske Rasmussen from Search Press; Sweet and Simple Sewing: Quilts and Sewing Projects to Give–or Keep by Jessi Jung, Carrie Jung and Lauren Jung from That Patchwork Place; Sew It! Make 17 Projects with Yummy Precut Fabric by Allison Nicoll from FunStitch Studio; and The Little Things in Life: Quilted Projects to Brighten Your Day by Heather and Elissa Willms from Kansas City Star Quilts.
Prize 2 includes Twenty to Make Bunting and Pennants by Kate Haxell from Search Press; The Home Patch by Anni Downs from QuiltMania; Fabulous Woll Felt: Stitch 17 Fun Gifts and Projects by by Suzanne Cosmo from Kansas City Star Quilts; and Home Sewn Celebrations by Teri Henderson Tope from AQS Publishing.
