Stash Note No 13 and a Giveaway

Here it comes as promised, my first ever giveaway!!!

This I am doing in honour of my one year quilt anniversary (not to be confused with blogaversery as that will only be later in the year). About a year ago around Easter time I started my first quilt.

I had taken a two week holiday and decided to spend it at home, going to the theatre, cinema, exhibitions, watching endless hours of recorded television and roaming around Soho. I think I love a staycation these days as much as going away. I've travelled a fair bit over the past 20 years but sometimes I am just content to stay at home. So I went to the Quilt exhibition at the V&A that was on at the time and I obviously loved it as it was fantastic. After that visit I went straight to my local quilt shop Tikki Ltd. and squeezed all the knowledge out from Tina the owner I could possibly do without being to rude, bought a whole bunch of Kaffe Fassett and Philip Jacobs fabrics and started sewing. Little did I know that a year later I was still sewing, got totally obsessed and had finished 12 quilts and various bags and garment pieces.

So in honour of that I am giving away a fat quarter set of the entire new Denyse Schmidt range 'Picnic and Fairground' that I purchased when I was in the US plus two coordinating solids I added myself.
Trust me it is a great range and full of bold colours that are just perfect for this time of the year.





These are the rules of engagement:

  • To qualify you need to leave me two comments in total
  • One comment to tell me where you are going in holiday next AND that you are now a follower or are following already
  • One comment to tell me that you promoted this giveaway on your blog/flickr/facebook/tweed/ local paper/church........you get my drift...I want exposure !
  • Everybody is welcome to participate, nationals, internationals and extraterrestrials (also watermelons !)
  • The Giveaway will be open for an entire week until Saturday the 14th of May 
  • The winner will be announced on the 15th of May 
I think that's it......enjoy !

  1. That V&A exhibition has a lot to answer for!

    I am a follower; and if you want a peaceful holiday avoid following me and the family to the Weymouth area this summer! I will be tempted to leave the kids at Monkey World!

    Will blog (in teeny tiny writing) tomorrow and come back for my second chance!

    Thank you x

  6. What a great giveaway! Congrats on your 1 year quiltaversary!
    Holiday this year... thats the trouble I don't know! My friend and I are going away for a week in July but we have no idea where to go! So it still needs booking. We are thinking possibly Norway, but time is running out! :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I am a follower! I'm not sure where we're going on holidays this year but the funds will not run to out of the country. I'd say a week in beautiful wild West Cork might be on the cards, and if we get the weather, its the most gorgeous place in the world!

Anyway, we're going to have three weeks in a villa with pool in Portugal - perfect when you have four kids - and I will take a number of hand sewing projects with me of course. I don't know whether I formally followed you or not so will click to follow after I've left this message. This is a totally fabulous giveaway BTW - make sure you also advertise it in Brit Quilt and feel free to post it in Lily's Quilts too. A lot of the big swaps also have giveaway threads, as do groups like Fresh Modern quilts. I also usually post my giveaways on a site called "Quilty Giveaways" - new giveaways posts open each Monday. Good Luck with this!

I have seen both those countries, but never seen Limburg which is in my own country. Oh and as said i am a follower!

  169. Whoops! In my note, above, I forgot to say that I just today returned home from Vashon Island, WA, where I enjoyed a quick, wonderful vacation. I plan to return there soon; my vacations will be scheduled around T-ball games. :)

    I have shared the news of this giveaway with my nieces; I'm guessing they'll be racing over here to enter soon.

  171. Wow, you've managed a lot in a year. I too am a newbie but obviously not quite as quick as you. My next holiday will be to the glorious west of Scotland to camp at the beaches near Morar/Arisaig, at the end of May. I'm going to try to take some sewing as i've just started a quilt as you go project.
    I'm now a follower having seen this giveaway on Lilysquilts.

    Many thanks
    Ali.
