Giveaway #12: Mini Quilt and Book – CLOSED

How many dots do you think are above? Go on…guess!
If you said 10 thousand you would be absolutely right! {I might also need to borrow your freakish talents for a little gambling at the casino later on…}
Now, take the picture above, and imagine ONE HUNDRED of them. Now imagine those dots are people and you have ONE MILLION PEOPLE – the number of visitors to Char’s amazing blog! Isn’t that simply mind blowing?!
Ok, ok, enough exhibition of my number fetishes. My name is Kelly and I LOVE to make stuff! Hence the name of my blog:

At the moment on my blog we are just finishing up our {Make} A Bag Sew Along. Next I plan to delve into the wonderful world of mini quilts! I am really excited to start exploring all the different blocks, colors and layouts of the quilting world in its smallest form. In helping Char celebrate her 1,000,000 visitors I thought I would have a giveaway with a mini quilt theme!
I have TWO prizes up for grabs for TWO lucky winners!

The first prize is the book ‘Whip Up Mini Quilts’ by the very talented Kathreen Ricketson of Whip Up. This book has the patterns and how-tos for more than 20 contemporary small quilts. It is quite fabulous! You can read more about it {here}.

The second prize is a mini quilt I made, featuring a screen-printed panel of ‘Anne-Sophie’ by the wonderful Rebecca of Blinking Flights. The quilt is about the size of a fat quarter.

Here is a close-up of the panel:

She’s sweet, huh?
Would you like to win one of these two prizes? I’ve made entering very simple, albeit a little cheeky. Ok, so maybe I am piggybacking a little off Char’s success here, but I think she’s strong as an ox and she won’t even waver… ;)
Please visit my blog and become a follower, and then scoot back here and leave a comment saying that you’re now following me. You can also tell me anything else you would like to say, I LOVE reading comments almost as much as I love chocolate with almonds!

This giveaway is open to EVERYONE INTERNATIONALLY!!! Hooray!!!

I’m assuming Char’s got all the giveaway details like closing dates and drawing dates covered. She’s clever like that.

Good luck!

    I'm now following you! And this site too, because it got kind of confusing with the links there for a moment. I would SO love to win the mini-quilt book- I'm having withdrawal pangs from sewing (as opposed to my "stitching")- and mini-quilts would fill the void, time- and material-wise.

  43. I am now following, and so glad that I am! What a fun blog and quilt:)

  44. What a cute quilt. I am now following.

  45. I am now a follower of your cute blog! My next crafty desire is to get back into sewing… if I can tear my sewing machine away from my SIL!! Glad to have found your blog!

  46. Holly @ Domestic Dork says:

    I follow {Make}! I'm practically drooling over that book!

I am in love with this mini quilt and, well, I spend hours looking through creative books so I'm in love with that too :) I haven't tried my hand at quilting yet, but I really want to! this may be the inspiration I need! cute stuff!
