Birthday Giveaway!

Yesterday was my birthday, and I'm celebrating with a little giveaway!



Though this year wasn't a significant one, it still warrants a celebration.        So who wants to win some quilt books and threads? Open to those in the continental US (sorry overseas), the contest starts today and ends January 31, 2020 at midnight. There are two Rafflecopter giveaways below, with links to increase your chances by visiting my Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram pages. Following is not necessary, though greatly appreciated! Both winners will be notified by email, and both items shipped via USPS mail within the continental US (no international shipping). 


The first lucky winner will receive these two quilt books, full of quilting fun!


giveaway books


Ombre Quilts, by Jennifer Sampou, which has 6 lovely projects using ombre fabrics. If you love ombres, or have some that you're waiting to use in the right project, then this is the perfect book!

There's also the Wool Applique Calendar Quilts, which has 12 months worth of fun applique projects. Since these are small quilts, 10.5" x 18.5", they stitch up fast for celebrating.
