Anyway like a lot of you I am trying to stash bust and I'm doing okay ( apart from my little blip last week but we won't talk about that - lol ! ) But I have been buying books. I've bought Jennifer Chiaverini's The Lost Quilter - Kaffe Fassetts Simple Shapes, Spectacular Quilts and this one
What a lovely book. Obviously it appeals to me ( my blog name is a bit of a clue ) as I am Welsh and I make quilts - lol ! In fact I loved it so much I bought another one for my blog-birthday. It has lots of history and pictures of Welsh quilts and also contains instructions for making your own Welsh-style quilt. One of these in particular caught my eye. A very simple design which when quilted in the Welsh style looks gorgeous. There are many quilting designs and motifs in this book. So part 2 of my giveaway is this quilt top
made by me this weekend and just ready for some lovely quilting. I plan to make another for myself and love the idea that there will be two of these in the world made by yours truly. It measures 24 inches square and is yours for the taking. A Welsh quilt of your own ! This is a typical example - very simple piecing but then brought to life with beautiful hand-quilting.
So if you would like to win both the book and the quilt top you know what to do. Leave me a comment and I will pick a random number a week from now - Sunday 30th May - 8pm UK time.
A couple of things - if you are set as no-reply ( I get lots of lovely comments I am unable to respond to ) could you include your email address in the comment. And I would prefer this to go to one of my regular readers so please don't advertise this on your blog.
Good luck XXX
