The theme for this week’s quilt contest is Flower Gardens. Your quilt can depict flowers or be made using flowered fabrics. Any quilting style is acceptable. You can submit quilts, wall hangings, pillows, etc. as long as the item you enter is completely finished (i.e. bound and quilted).
We have a new sponsor this week… Julz from Simple Stitches creates adorable patterns for dolls, fairies, quilts and embroidery/stitchery. This week, she’s having a give-away for her newsletter subscribers and two special discounts that everyone can enjoy too. See below for full details.
Hi everyone, I’m Julz from Simple Stitches. I started sewing at a fairly young age on Mum’s old treadle Singer, dolls’ clothes, clothes for me and later on clothes for my girls that progressed along until I found patchwork and quilting about 15 years ago…well I was bitten by the bug!
After some encouragement from friends I started popping handmade items onto The Chocolate Crow Trader (sadly no longer around). From there I needed somewhere to showcase my designs and ready-made items for sale, and Simple Stitches was born.
All of the patterns available are my own designs, suitable for beginners and the more advanced. Patterns are available as paper patterns (sent through the post) or as a PDF…love these! Pick your pattern, pay, download the link, print (or just open, saves paper and ink!) and start stitching.
I’ve always got something on the go, either a new doll design or a quick stitchery, or something that takes a little longer. Sneaky peeks usually pop up on the blog!
So drop over to my Simple Stitches site for a look around, sign up for my monthly newsletter while you’re there (you’ll find the sign up in the left sidebar at the bottom). Each month I draw a name from the list to win a lovely prize…this changes each month, so you never know what it might be. This is May’s prize.. a PDF pattern of Mikki the Fairy Angel.
This week, when you purchase from the web site I’ll give you 20% off, please use the coupon code when ordering: QG20, so I know you have found me through here. (Does not apply to the below special)
And this month I have a great special: purchase two patterns and get another one free (of equal or lesser value) see the web site for details.
The winner of this week’s contest will receive this great pattern pack featuring three of my best sellers!
