Oops-a-daisy GIVEAWAY!!!

I mentioned recently (while declaring my love for the land of blog) that there might be a bit of a giveaway coming up at Patch Andi ... Well today is the day!!

A while back, I purchased some divine Little Folks voiles from Corie at Banberry Place.
I suspect that Corie was having a minor 'moment' when she sent me a yard of this fabric (which I already had in my stash):


Instead of this fabric (that I had ordered):


In fact, she was so keen to add to my pink fabric stash, that she sent it to me ... twice!

Oops-a-daisy!!

So I now have 2 yards surplus pink fabric for which Corie has kindly agreed to sponsor a giveaway!!!


Hooray for Banberry Place!!!

And hooray for Kathreen, author of Whip Up-Mini Quilts who has also generously donated a copy of her book to give away too!!


A signed copy!!


Kate has written a great review of the book over here for your reading pleasure.

So, I will offer 2 prizes:
  1. A copy of Kathreen's book plus 1 yard of the pink voile (Sorry, Australian residents only. The overseas postage is a killer.)
  2. 1 yard of the voile (All entries welcome)
To enter, simply leave a comment on this post.
No hoops to jump through.
One chance per person.
Please make sure you let me know where you are in the world and how I can contact you.

I will draw a winner Monday morning (Melbourne time).

Thanks again to Corie and Kathreen.


Andi :-)

Woooooo - that fabric is so pretty and would make a fabulous addition to the (v.little) fabric stash I am trying to build so that I can make my first quilt! The book would also be wonderful as I am a bit of a newbie and could use all the help I can get!

I'm in old Melbourne town (well Yarraville anyway. You can reach me at rain_in_a_teacup@hotmail.com
