Double Monday giveaway



Yep, two things today, you lucky peeps. And hey, I remembered it was Monday! Congratulations again to Ramona, who won the flying geese yesterday - well done & I hope you enjoy them. This week's treats are a set of bookcase blocks - these are from a swap, and there's nothing at all wrong with them except that I just no longer want to make a bookcase quilt. There are 12 blocks in total - shown here are six. The blocks were mostly paper-pieced, but the paper is off except for two - one of which is still in its three component pieces. Still, a nice start to a bookcase quilt, if you want to make one. I forget the precise size, but I think they are about 8 inches high by maybe 12 wide. In those regions, anyway.

And the other thing, which I actually fished back out of the bin in my sewing room today when I was organising, is this large handful of large beads and bits of jewelry which I have had for a LONG time, but which are simply too big to be of any use to me. To give an idea of scale, the large pink bead in centre is about 1.5" in diameter and about 3/4" thick.

If you are interested in either (or both) item, leave a comment on this post before Sunday (specify which thing if you only want one). I will draw two winners on Sunday and announce them on the blog. Watch (as they say) this space!

I would love to be in the drawing for the bookcase blocks. I haven't done anything with my blocks from the swap, as I felt I needed more blocks. whine whine whine, Colene

Hi Kete,
I came here from Ramona's blog where she was showing off her flying geese win.
I would like to enter for the bookcase quilt blocks too. I've never seen them before and since I'm a book lover with thousands of books, I could not think of a better quilt.
regards

Is it too cheeky to ask to be entered in another draw? If yes, don't worry! If not, can I be entered for the bookcase block draw please. Thanks :)

Oh enter me for the bookcase blocks please! I love them! Those beads are awesome but I haven't ventured into much other than fabric yet lol.

Hello Kate,

You have been busy! I really like the landscape card. I have just read an issue of the Quilters Newsletter and there is a workshop on landscape postcards and yours remind me of the cards...they were done by Caroline Reardon...you and her seem to use a lot of the same techniques of using the machine to threadpaint.

Of course you can put me into either draw if I can be in both ;)...but the bookcase blocks are my first choice. You are very generous Kate.

Later
Peggy

Wow you have so many entries already, but you have to be in it to win it so they say. I'd love to be entered please Kate :)

I'm a quilter who loves to read, getting into beading. Does that qualify me for both giveaways? :)

No seriously - I love the bookend squares!

I would love to have a go at the bookcase too, looks like you've made some very popular blocks there. I hope whoever gets them will post the finished bookcase, I can see so many options for it. Fun fun fun.
