Congratulations to #40 Barbara G. for winning last week’s give-away of Books 1-2-3 of The Quilt Ladies collection.
This week’s give-away of a free online class (winner’s choice) and 1 metre of hand-dyed homespun cotton fabric is brought to you by Chris Dahl and Michelle Frost of Quilting Weekly and Wendy Nash.
At Quilting Weekly we take quilting beyond the classroom and into your home with original quilt patterns that you download right to your own computer. Our patterns come with detailed photos, easy to follow instructions and some even include videos. When you purchase a pattern you get more than just a pattern; you get personal and individual guidance from our instructors.
What sets our lessons apart from other online classes is we encourage individuality. We want to inspire your own unique and creative style, instead of expecting "cookie cutter" quilts from our students. We do this by including multiple projects or different layout options in our patterns. There is more to us than a pattern. We hold quilting discussions twice a month, offer free patterns & tips which are all designed to help inspire your creativity.
Wendy Nash has been a community artist on the Island of Tasmania for many years. She loves to use the environment to dye fabric – from the forest to the ocean – she loves using nature to provide the color to her fabrics. The piece of fabric (homespun cotton) that will be given away will be hand dyed with natural Indigo. This will create a beautiful blue color with various patterns that will look fabulous when it is turned into any kind of quilt.
Please note: The picture above is an example of Indigo dyeing – the final piece will be a surprise.
