CYBER BLOG WEEK GIVEAWAY

That's right.  A GIVEAWAY.  We have been waiting for today to introduce you to our newest book, FAB FIVE, Fun, Fast & Flirty, and to give away 5 COPIES, one each to five winners.  First, the book, then at the end, how to win a book.
























The book starts with two different basic quilts,  the first quilt uses 8 coordinating fat quarters, 4 in one color wave and 4 in another color wave.  The other basic quilt uses 16 scrap pieces 10" x 18".  Then, you get to choose from FIVE different appliques.
 For Spring, PRETTY POSIES with 8 Fat Quarters
Then, PRETTY POSIES with 16 scrap pieces.
























Next,  for summer, STARS AND STRIPES with 8 fat quarters.
























Next, STARS AND STRIPES with 16 scrap pieces.
























For Halloween, SPOOK ALLEY with 8 Fat quarters.
























And SPOOK ALLEY with 16 scraps.
























And just in time for Christmas, we have HOLIDAY HOOPLA with 8 Fat Quarters.
























And HOLIDAY HOOPLA with 16 Scraps.
























All the quilts have raw edge appliques.  The Christmas quilt has ornaments that you can decorate with ric rac, button, jewels, whatever you like.

And if all the holidays weren't enough, we had the bonus cover quilt, LOTSA DOTS.

The finished size for the quilts is 50" x 60", a perfect lap quilt.  The are fast to cut and sew, and fun to keep or even give away.  You will want to make them all.

So, now for the giveaway.  We have several ways to get chances.  The more chances you have the better your odds.

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

I love them all but if push comes to shove I guess I like the Halloween ones the most. All the quilts almost look like they have a secret message written in them. You know when they stretch the letters and make them taller? They look like that.

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

I already "like" you on FB :)

I like them all!! It's hard to choose, since you've selected all my favorite themes/colors... but since I don't see many Patriotic quilts, I'm going to say the scrappy patriotic one.
