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

On another note, your quilting is looking amazing ! Love the effect of the variegated thread!

Leanne, I'm loving the quilting on Sunset! How many different colours of thread are you using? The change in colours is so intriguing and adds so much depth to this piece. Keep going, it's amazing!

Hmm... so many great choices! How about some Glimma? :o)

Lori said...

I have been eyeing Giggles for a while now.

Mary Menzer said...

Wow! You have so many entries already! I wold love to win - the layer cakes are fun. I keep meaning to try one of the patterns but I always end up using up pieces of the layer cake in something else! I love your circle quilts, you are doing such wonderful quilting on them, so inspiring!

Wow. I love the close up of the quilting you showed in the last photo. Picking rows of that out would not be fun at all.
I would choose the Esprit de Noel collection from French General. I'm a French teacher and love their fabrics! I came over on a visit on the Canadian Blogathon.

Quilter in the Gap said...

Oh Lordy....its all your fault. I sat down for just a minute to work on Sarah's baby shower and now you have me looking at FQS....I would probably choose Road 15 by Sweetwater but who knows!!! I really need to get up but I can't quit yawning!!! Uh Oh...I see where this headed!!!

LJ said...

Lemonade is so cute and simple. I think it's the simplicity that appeals to me. I love Kate Spain's Daydreams but I also like Detour cuz that could be used for my grandsons. Wow, your stitchin lines are so regular; spectacular!

I'd go with Simply Style by V & Co. But it's a tough choice!

Today my pick would be Lush, but who knows what tomorrow will bring!

Tracy said...

Can't believe I nearly missed this chance, I'm distracted by your progress which,personally , I love to see. To me it reassures me that not everyone cuts, pieces and quilts in just a week! Also, it's nice to see and hear about your creative process. I'd choose the Giraffe Crossing layer cake to make a quilt for a friend who's expecting her first baby.
