Win a layer cake, maybe?



The Fat Quarter Shop has donated a layer cake of your choice for me to give away today. You will see from the video that they have a cute new free pattern - Layer Cake Lemonade - that they have released today that uses a layer cake, so winning one would be timely. I really like Kimberly's videos by the way, it is sort of like finally meeting the person whose shop I frequent often and who is a sponsor on this blog.

You can read about the pattern and see many versions of it quilted in their blog post here. You might also have seen several designers blogging about it this morning too. The link to the pattern is here.

I have to say (and they did not ask me to say anything - the opinions are all my own) that this pattern is lovely and would be an excellent choice for:

  • a beginner quilter
  • using a layer cake you cannot bring yourself to cut into and love to see the prints in large pieces
  • a quick and lovely last minute quilt present
  • a holiday quilt which you really want but have no time to make

I am enjoying the Fat Quarter Shop's free pattern series - each one is designed to be fun, pretty and straightforward. 

** The giveaway is now closed**

So to win the layer cake, leave me one comment letting me know which one you would pick. Go here to see what they have on offer - oh and the layer cakes are all 20% off this week too. I will draw the winner on Thursday night after 9 p.m. MST using the random number generator.  If you want another entry, share this giveaway somewhere or be a follower of this blog in some way and then comment to let me know you did or do and where and how.

Please make sure I can find you if you are entering the draw. If you are a no-reply commenter, leave your email in your comment. I need to be able to contact you if you win.

I have a busy week this week at my day job. But when I am not working, I am hoping to be doing more quilting on Sunset.

Sunset, in progress

It is, in fact, mostly relaxing, except for last night when a spool of thread misbehaved and made loops on the back and I had to rip out several lines. Oops. I guess it is good to check the back more often.

Best,

Leanne
