Give Away On London Modern Quilt Guild Blog

5 Jun

Good Day All, some late news about a give away from Michael Tricolette on the London Modern Quilt Guild Blog, go over to enter to win some Rowan, Robert Kaufman and Free Spirit fabrics.  The closing date is Thursday 7 June – so get commenting:)

My Piece inspired by Hundertwasser is growing slowly.  It’s a bit tricky as the pieces of upholstery fabric are small so to link it all together is taking some brain work.  I love the yellow – it seems to be lifting the other colours beautifully.

Thanks for coming by,


Winner For Sew Mama Sew Give Away

26 May

Wow – I hope you all had as much fun as I did this week!  Thank you to all who commented on my give away post – it’s always great to read comments and get some feedback:)  The Sew Mama Sew give away was a great success, with so many wonderful blogs out there…I could spend hours on end reading them.

I do have a winner – tawnykw – who said:

“I like the black and white oil cloth on the right. And that backpack is adorable! I was just thinking that I need to get a smallish backpack to wear this summer to put a few things in when I take the kids to the park. I don’t really want to be pulling a wagon with two kids in it while trying to hold a bulky purse.”

Congratulations, I shall send you a direct email so I can get your mailing details:)

Thanks again to all who entered here on diannajessie – do stop by again,
