St. Patrick’s Day Giveaway!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and if you’re new, welcome to my blog.  The Quilting Gallery is hosting a St. Patrick’s Day Giveaway and I thought it would be great to join in the fun and host a giveaway too.

st-patricks dayBlog Hop Party

Today I am giving away the book  “Sew the perfect Gift” by That Patchwork Place and Martingale and Company.  Many crafting and quilting designers  have come together and put projects in this great book.  All the patterns to make these items are included in the book.

I love the little pincushion on the front cover.  It’s a cute and perfect for using up some wool scraps.

I am a Kim Diehl fan.  She contributed this cute little mini quilt.

I’d love a couple of these embroidered towels in my kitchen.

I’d love to make this little apron with pockets.  When I am working with the quilting machine, this would be perfect to hold my scissors and my MP3 player.

This would be a cute bag for me to make for my daughter who is a knitter….oh so many cute projects all in one book!

There are several purse patterns too.  I think this one made from a recycled sweater is so cute…check out the mug cozy too.

Pillows patterns are featured in the book too.  I love this one with numbers on it.

There are pattern for all sorts of goodies in the book, journal cover, scarves, eye glass cases, lunch totes…all sorts of goodies.  There are 25 projects featured in the book!  With so many projects jammed into one book, a person might think the instructions are abbreviated, not true.  The 117 page book has great pictures and something in the book is sure to appeal to all tastes.

I made one of the projects from the book.  You can see it here.

If you would like to get a chance to win the book, you don’t need to do anything except leave a comment here telling your nationality…I have Swedish, English and German descendants…but I’m willing to be Irish for day!  If you haven’t been there yet, be sure to check out the Quilt Galleries list of other St. Patrick’s Day Giveaways.  The Quilting Gallery is also sponsoring their weekly Quilt Contest.  This week they are featuring baby quilts.  Go check them out and if you’re so inclined, vote for my Crumb quilt with the alphabet border.  I’ll pick a winner next Friday!  Before you go, I am hosting another giveaway for an awesome product for your sewing machine, a Ecolux LED Light.  You can check it out here (sorry it’s CLOSED), but this book giveaway is still going on.

    Ooh that book looks wonderful. If I don’t win I think I’m going to have to go out and buy it. A mixture of Dutch, Scottish, German and now Canadian got me here.

  5. Karen O

    I don’t even know what all Nationalities I have. Mom was 1/2 German, 1/2 Swedish. Ancestor on Dad’s side came here from England in 1620, so who knows what is mixed in there in the 13 generations before me! Thank you for the chance to win such a great book.

    My ancestors are of German descent. I married a French guy so our kids are mutts :P Having a heat wave here in northern Maine today yes!!! I’m sure we are in for more cold and more mud…

    Grandpa Cunningham was Scotch-Irish. All my other grandparents had a list too long to remember, so I usually say Scotch-Irish when asked around St Patty’s day. Otherwise, I’m American!

  13. Mary Ellen

    Thank you for the giveaway. Love it when the patterns arei included in the book so I don’t have to “increase the pattern 250%”. I am 75% Irish, and 25% English. My mom was born on St. Patrick’s Day.

  14. Glenda in Florida

    Hmmm, at least 1/4 German, and the rest most likely English, Scotch, and Irish would be our best guest. Too bad we have no budding geneologist in our famly. That looks like a great book. Thanks for the give-away.

  15. Nancysue

    My grandfather was French Canadian, grandmother was English and paternal grandparents from German descent. I’m a bit of the melting pot…(fondue)LOL! Looks like a wonderful book! Thank you for participating in the blog hop!
