Giveaway anybody ?

.....but only if you want to.....not twisting your arms.

I started quilting about 18 months ago and I feel in this short period of time a lot happened here in the UK when it comes to fabric. More and more well equipped on-line shops appear on the horizon offering us fabrics that in previous year were only available in the US.

One of those fabulous shops is River Fabrics. Janette, who owns the shop contacted me to sponsor a giveaway and I am more than happy to host it. Janette is also a quilter and got into the "habit" through her mother-in-law who has been a patchworker for many years. Janette started the shop also 18 months ago when she found it difficult to source fabric locally. She started small and now has a sizable selection of print fabric and solids ! Oh we love solids.  She stocks Kona cotton in 116 colours at the moment ! I think that might just be more than half of the Kona colour palette.
She also stocks Anna-Maria Horne's Lou Lou Thi, Ruby by Bonnie & Camille, Circa 1934  by Cosmo Cricket to name just a few of the printed fabrics. She's got yardage, pre-cuts, the lot.

And guess what she also has started to stock Aurifll thread......

Janette offers generously 5 half yards of Kona solids (winner's choice but subject to availability) plus a spool of Aurifil !
How about it ? This would make a really nice quilt just from solids or would be a much valued  addition to any combined print/solids projects you are planning.

Wouldn't this here be a great colour combination for autumnal feel ?







Or this here for in case you are dreaming of a Caribbean holiday:






Plenty of possibilities, you just need to visit her on-line store and get inspired.

The giveaway rules of engagement are as follows:
  • you need to sign-up to Janette's newsletter or like her on facebook and let me know via comment that you did
  • for a bonus point you could spread the work about the giveaway via any electronic means and let me know with a comment
  • a third bonus can be earned by following me and letting me know via comment that you do
  • international participants are welcome
  • no e-mail address in comment or blogger profile = no chance of winning
  • giveway is open until Saturday the 26th November
  • winner will be revealed on Sunday 27th
