GIVEAWAY-HOT OFF THE PRESS

GIVE AWAY IS NOW CLOSED

These little booklets by Moda came into the shop where I work, and Katja offered to give one away to one of you readers. The patterns are jellyroll friendly and easy to piece. The booklet includes patterns for the whole Alphabet as well as several blocks so you can create a quilt measuring 59 x 68. To sweeten the pot a bit I've added some fat quarters of Chantilly by Lauren and Jessi Jung for Moda. Sooooo pretty.



Just to give you a little inspiration, here are a few things I've made using letters:

 The Love quilt


My word for a donation quilt


A baby quilt for Memphis


So if you think you might like to 'Spell it with Fabric' just leave a (one) comment on this post and I will choose a winner later in the week.
******please make sure I can contact you.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
