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.
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.
