GET A TOUCH OF WHIMSEY

What better way to introduce a new BOOK than with a new GIVEAWAY.  We had a crazy spring, new projects for market, the new book and a huge deadline, and in the middle of it all, I stopped and make a holiday pillow. It was fun and fast and immediately made it's way to my living room couch.  So it hit us, let's do a PILLOW BOOK.  We got our delivery from the printer the day before market.  The book was a big hit. 

A TOUCH OF WHIMSEY has 12 different decorative pillows.  From holidays to decorator, the pillows are quick and easy, and a great way to use up your stash or your favorite new fabrics.  They have fun textures and embillishments too.























We have color pictures of all the pillows throughout the book.  Here are a couple of samples.

 






















These are two of the pillows, all 12 are pictured on our website which brings us to our little contest.

Three winners will each get a copy of the new book, A TOUCH OF WHIMSEY.

THE RULES (if you can call window shopping on the internet a rule)  Get up to five chances to win a book.

1 - Head over to the our website, http://www.abbeylanequilts.com/, go to the shopping page and click on the Touch of Whimsey book.  It will take you to the page with all the pillows.  Pick your favorite and leave us a comment telling us which one by name.

2 - Tell your friends about our little contest on your blog.  We love going to your blogs to find out more about you.

3 - Become a follower of our blog. If you are already a follower, just let us know. 

4 - Add us as a friend on FACEBOOK.  Just look up Abbeylanequilts. 

5 - Tell your friends on facebook about our little contest.

That should do it.  We will pick the winners next week after the holiday.

Here is the back cover with a shot of all the pillows.























Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

It's impossible to choose just one pillow - they are all so amazing. If I had to choose one I would choose "Frosty" because he is so darn cute.

Cloud Nine Sewing said...

Love your newest giveaway for Simple Choices! Even if a person does not win a giveaway your items are all worth purchasing because they are beautiful, whimsical, and one-of-a-kind designs! (And I do not say that often!) Having said that I'm sad to say it, but I cannot "choose" block, applique, or trim in order to enter your giveaway contest. Perhaps it is because I am on a Mac? I am not sure. Nevertheless, I continue to champion your wonderful website, blog, quilts, and all of your items on my Facebook page Cloudnine Sewing which is a sister site to my other interest which is my dog rescue organization called Cloud Nine Rescue. For the record, I chose the "Halloween" block/quilt and black and orange giant Ric Rac (love the giant Ric Rac!). HAVE A WONDERFUL 2012 ABBEY LANE QUILTS AND JANICE AND MARCEA! GOD BLESS YOU FROM RIGHT HERE IN FLORIDA FROM MYSELF AND THE CLOUD NINE RESCUE DOGS! (Woof! Woof!)
