Some of you who follow me on Twitter and Instagram may have seen that this week I've been working on some quilt blocks.
The blocks are all from my sewing bestie, AKA Katy Jones, AKA 'Im A Ginger Monkey' new book: 25 Patchwork Quilt Blocks published by Martingale.
Katy is an internet turned real-life friend and a proper brilliant one at that! She has inspired and encouraged me to sew so many quilts as well as other stuff like zippered pouches, the staple dress & framed purses and of course she has taught me all I know about English Paper Piecing! She is my one-stop shop for all sewing advice and has held my hand so many times through fabric choices I can't begin to tell you. I'm really proud of her and feel so very lucky that she really is one of my best friends ever!
The book I feel, is a must for all quilters, whether you are a beginner or an old hat! Its so beautifully laid out and the instructions are very easy to follow. For me the best part is seeing how Katy has used traditional blocks and given them a new lease of life with her stunning fabric choices.
To celebrate all her hard work and the publication of her first solo book I've got a super spectacular giveaway - a signed copy of the book and a scrap pack of all the fabrics that I used to make my blocks!!
The fabric is all available (except the skulls but there is some in the prize) in my online shop Simply Solids. I used fabric from the Sketch & Rain lines to highlight how great these two designs play together!
So how do you enter? Just follow my blog and leave a comment to say you have done this. Simples right?
The competition will close at Noon on Sunday 14th July 2013 with the winner chosen by random.org and announced later that evening.
