MEMBERS and PAST MEMBERS GIVE AWAY

I am having a birthday this month, but I am giving you the presents compliments of our new sponsor fabric direct.

The lovely Eve has sent me two mouth watering fat quarter packs.  I am so tempted to keep them for myself (grin) but I wont be greedy.  I guess I will just have to enter to win.

I am holding this give away to Members and Past members only of Quilting block swaps Australia, Christmas Block swaps Australia or 6 inch block swaps Australia.  As a thank you to the members for all of your support and dedication to the Quilting block swaps Australia groups over the past two years.

Here is a peek of what is on offer :

 Civil war set
Summer House set

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post telling me what set you would like to receive either the civil war set or the summer house set.

Easy as that. 

Entries close at 5pm (Adelaide time) on May 23rd which just so happens to be my birthday.

Wow, exciting! Firstly though - Happy Birthday Sue! Both sets look wonderful but I'd have to say I prefer the Summer House set. The colours look gorgeous and I'm sure they will tone with a couple of fabrics I already have! Lucky us have the chance to win these. Thank you to Fabric Direct!

What a great giveaway! Both sets look lovely, but I have to say my eyes draw closer to the Summer House set than the Civil war one... Loving the aqua and white through it!

Happy Birthday to you Sue!
I'll never forget this date as you share it with my mother's birthday too.
I'd love the Civil War bundle. This is a project I have on my mind. Just have to stay still in a place long enough to start this marvellous quilt.
Thanks for the chance

Happy Happy B'day to you Sue. You deserve to be spoilt on this auspicious occasion! I'd love to get either one of the 'packs'. My eyes are going back and forth between the 2. A decision too difficult to make as they are both gorgeous! Thank you Sue for sharing your 'wealth'
