Quilting Gallery Giveaway Party - Sunnyside

:: Giveaway now Closed - winner is Jessica of Quilty Habit. Thanks everyone for joining in the fun! ::

Hop, hop and stop! Pause here a moment, lovely reader, for my little part in the fun Quilting Gallery Giveaway Party. I’ll make it more enticing – there’s a giveaway at the end!

I know these giveaway parties are usually frantic days of getting through oodles of blogs, entering fabulous giveaways, and hopefully finding some fun new blogs to follow! So I will keep my post short and sweet.

The short:
I’m Kristy – a stay at home mum of two kidlets and I mainly sew for sanity. I love to quilt, but my true quilty niche is foundation paper piecing. I love it. That’s perhaps an understatement. I also design paper pieced patterns - some for sale and some for free :) (you can check them all out here on Craftsy).

The sweet:
For my giveaway offering, I have both fabric and patterns on offer!

The fabric:
I have a charm pack of Sunnyside by Kate Spain to give away. I will post internationally so everyone is welcome to enter!

Sunnyside charm pack
The patterns:
To go along with the fabric,the winner can choose 3 patterns of their choice from my Craftsy shop. Just to encourage a bit more paper piecing in the quilty world Winking smile

Visit Quiet Play's Craftsy Pattern Store »

The fine print:
Everyone is welcome to enter! But please make sure I can contact you via email should you be the winner!

To enter, just leave me a comment before the 26th November. Any comment will do! Need an idea? Leave me a suggestion for a paper pieced pattern, or tell me which one is your favourite in my shop. There’s a second optional bonus entry for followers (but you’ll need to leave a separate comment saying how you follow).

And that’s all folks! Good luck and happy hopping!

  52. You have wonderful PP patterns. My daughter is expecting and is planning a jungle theme nursery. She loves monkeys. She saw a quilt with a monkey swinging on a branch that I know she would love me to make, but it was appliqued and I prefer piecing and paper piecing. So a playful monkey PP pattern or two would be something I would purchase. Thanks for the free patterns in your shop and for the great giveaway chance to win ... :) Pat

Thanks for hosting! pbstrand@msn.com aka Beth at Words & Stitches.
