SIMPLE CHOICES GIVEAWAY

IT'S GIVEAWAY TIME.  We have been waiting and waiting for the right time, and now, after I  finally got snow, about 18 inches the past couple of days it is time to celebrate.  (as a reminder, me, Marcea, lives in Utah, and that is where it snowed, not Florida where Janice lives.)


Back to the giveaway.  We published a new book which debuted at Market in Houston called SIMPLE CHOICES.

We started with 5 different individual quilts blocks.  Then we added 5 super fun appliques.  We topped it off with two different trims, ric rac or raw edge.  The idea is simple, CHOOSE YOUR BLOCK, CHOOSE YOUR APPLIQUE, CHOOSE YOUR TRIM, and before you know it you have 25 different quilts.

We added something else to our website in November, LARGE RIC RAC.  Yup, over 20 colors.  We love Ric Rac and use it in so many projects, we thought we would provide easy access to lucious colors on line.

We will have 3 WINNERS, each one winning a SIMPLE CHOICES book and 4 yards of you favorite color of Ric Rac.  That's just the right amount to make a SIMPLE CHOICES QUILT.  How to win:

1.  Check out the website, http://www.abbeylanequilts.com/, then choose the shopping page.  Got to the SIMPLE CHOICES page and pick your favorite BLOCK nd QUILT.  Remember, with this book, you get to choose and customize your quilt.  Here is a quick sneak peak at the quilts.






2.  While you are on the shopping page, click on the RIC RAC and choose a color that would look great on your quilt.

3.  Add yourself as a follower on our blog. For an additional chance, mention our giveaway on your blog.  If you are already a follower, just let us know.

4.  Friend us on Facebook at Abbey Lane Quilts.  If you are already a friend, let us know.  Post this giveaway on facebook for another chance.

You will get a chance for each number you do above.  If i counted right, you could get 6 chances to win.

We will pick a winner next Sunday, so get your chances in quick.

WE KNOW YOU WILL LOVE THIS BOOK.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Janice and Marcea

The Ric Rac color choice is tough. I have Halloween fabric that I want to use for a Halloween baby. I'm thinking Purple would work. I KNOW that Orange will too; but, I want to be atypical. :-)

Log Cabin is almost always my fave block for any quilt.

Islandgirl said...

I love this book! I would pair the Wacky Square block with the bird applique - probably in bright reds, yellows and oranges with just a touch of lime green - so I would need the Apple ric rac!

ShirleyC said...

I like Simply Summer and the wacky square block.

Islandgirl said...

Oh! I see that my RicRac choice was to be a separate comment to give me an extra choice....so Apple Green it is!
