Give Away Time

As mentioned some time ago, we are celebrating reaching 200 followers at Quilting block Australia. It's really lovely that some if our past swappers have rejoined, and others still comment in our blog and Facebook page and stay in touch with us.

Again, a huge thank you and hugs to the very gorgeous Eve from fabric direct for donating this pretty set of Anna Bella for our give away. There are five 25 cm strips of fabric in this set.
I recently made a purchase from Eve and asked if she would be so kind as to sponsor us again and she was more than willing to do so, so lets reward her with some online shopping fun at Fabric Direct



To enter the give away, simply pop a comment in this post telling me what sewing tool you cannot live without, for me it's a good pair of sharp scissors.

Entries close at 5pm next Friday 19th July and the winner drawn by random org. I will announce the lucky winner on Saturday 20th July next. Entry is open to all current and past members of Quilting Block Swaps

elliek said...

Think it has to be the reverse stitcher! ( quick unpick) I have about 6 and can I find one when I need it? No.

My tongue - have you ever tried to thread a needle without your tongue peeping out between your lips? lol...I bet you just tried to thread an imaginary needle then

Jan said...

I love all the above, but it is amazing how often I use a bamboo skewer to arrange the threads under the sewing foot - saves my fingers.

It's the rotary cutter or perhaps the pair of scissor I keep by my machine!

Fiona said...

Michell said...

It really has to be my unpicker. Just can not do with out it

Karen said...

Definitely has to be my needle threader. If not for it and also the one attached to my machine I would spend half my day threading up!!
Thank you for the opportunity of winning a gorgeous fabric prize

My must have is thread. If I had no thread I would have no blocks. :-)

MARYNAN said...

Congratulations on 200 followers - my favourite tool in EPP is my thimble, no more holes in fingers for me. Also good sharp scissors in all shapes and sizes!!!!

My comfort thimble.
It is a soft rubbery plastic. Shaped for fingernails and has a padded tip.

Though small and some might say insignificant, I love my little Clover finger presser and use it all the time. I don't think I could do without it now. What a lovely set of fabrics to celebrate 200 followers!

Julianne said...

Hmmmm...its a toss up between my cutting mat and my fancy sharp seam ripper!

Karen Falzon said...

I can't decide, if any of my bits and pieces weren't available, nothing would get done, although at least if I had needles and thread, I could still sew - so needles and thread would be my pick.

Unpicker, unpicker, unpicker - can't live without it!
I also love my sewing machine. Gorgeous fabrics, thanks for the giveaway!

Tracey said...

The needle threader on my machine! It's so nice not to have to try to get the thread end in that tiny eye!
