Trick or Treat Giveaway ....


If you said "Trick", jump straight to the bottom of this post.  If, however you said "Treat", then read on as I have a GREAT giveaway for you. Winter's coming, right?  It's getting colder, right?  OK, OK, if you live in the southern bit of the world your answers will be "No" and "No", but you can still enter this giveaway, I don't mind.  Anyway, as I was saying, before I so rudely interrupted myself, winter's coming so this is the book we all need in our lives.


This book has got 12 gorgeous warm and welcoming "country" style quilt projects in it. Just to give you an idea of the delights to be found inside this book, just take a look at this picture:

There are lovely projects which combine traditional piecing with folk-style applique.  The back cover says about this book "Quilters of all levels will enjoy the relaxed nature of these scrappy projects - imperfections only add to their personality and charm".  I like that, they're giving me permission to have unpointy points and uncircular circles!

The instructions for each quilt starts with a helpful little box with a hint or tip on things like choosing your fabrics, which is great, and the instructions are all very clear.

Thanks to those wonderful people at Martingale and Company, you could have up to three chances to win this book, but you might have to come and drag it out of my hand.  Just leave  a comment on this post for one chance to win; be a follower or become one and leave another comment telling me this for a second chance and if you post about the giveaway on your own blog and leave me another comment you have a third chance.

This giveaway is open to anyone, wherever you live but please make sure you leave me an email address if you are a "no-reply" blogger, so I can get in touch with you if you win.  I will leave this open until next Sunday, and announce the winner on Monday, 8 November.

Now, for anyone who said "Trick" instead of "Treat" at the beginning, here is a little video for you.




HAPPY  HALLOWEEN   EVERYONE
