Win a Rainbow Fabric bundle for Giveaway Day!!!!

Today is Sew Mama Sew giveaway day and I have a really lovely giveaway for you today :-)


If you're visiting my blog for the first time as part of this giveaway, welcome. I'm so happy to meet you! I'm Sarah, I'm a modern Irish quilter living in beautiful Cork in the south west of Ireland. I love making quilts and pretty things. I'm a super busy working mum, with 3 smallies and a lovely hubby to look after, in addition to my job and my quilting addiction. You can find out some more about me here and you can have a quick look at my gallery of lovely projects here. I hope that you will come back and visit me again when the giveaway is over :-) Because my life is so madly busy at the moment, I don't get to blog quite as often as I'd like. But I do post pictures of what I'm working on over on Instagram and on my Facebook page all the time, so do please come and chat with me on one of those places! You'll find the links for all the places I hang out online up on the top right of my sidebar.


I spent a little while thinking about what to give away today for the Sew, Mama, Sew! giveway day. And I thought it should be something I would love to win, if I was entering. So today's prize is a combination of my 2 favourite things - fabric and a quilt book.

First up, I have put together, from my own (rather overflowing at this stage) stash, a lovely bundle of fat eighths in a rainbow of colours. There are 2 FEs of each colour. The fabrics are all gorgeous, designer quilting cottons from designers like Aneela Hoey, Kate Spain, Vanesa Christenson, Lizzy House, Tanya Whelan etc.That's 2 whole yards of fabric!!


The second part of the prize is the lovely quilt book Modern Baby. 


This book is full of lovely patterns for baby quilts, including my one of my own patterns, Modern Shapes Sampler:



I'll keep the entries simple. I'm putting together my Christmas wish list, and of course, quilt books are on it. For your entry, tell me what your favourite quilt pattern/book is. Please ensure that you leave your email address in your comment unless you are absolutely 100% certain you have your Blogger profile set up to receive replies via email.

For a bonus entry, follow me over on Instagram (@sewfairyface) or Facebook (facebook.com/fairyfacedesigns) and let me know you do.

I will ship internationally. This giveaway will close on the evening (Irish time) of December 13th. Winner will be drawn at random. If I cannot contact the winner, I will redraw.

Good luck!

I love love love your rainbow fabric selection, especially since I don't actually have a single one of them in my stash and quite a few of them are on my wish list.
I haven't made my first quilt yet - I am working on one with a friend then my new year gift to me will be time to make my first 2 quilts. This does mean that at this stage I can offer little advice on quilt books. I have been hanging out to get Tula Pink's 100 Modern Quilt blocks. I have a friend that has it and it is just beautiful and full of great patterns.

Absolutely gorgeous! this rainbow is stunning and I would love to have a look at the book. I do not know if there is a quilting book I need but I would love to get "Quilting on the go". Think that must be perfect for all the classes you sit outside waiting .. the other one I thought might be great especially if you have a boy in the house is "stop.go.quilt.sew" This is on my wishlist and Santa might be nice ...

There's just so many to choose from. Eye candy wise I love the Material Obsession books, technique and useful advice wise I like Marie Clayton's Quilter's Bible and what I'm most likely to make wise I think 3 Fabric Quilts is a good book of simple designs. I also love Tula Pink's new City blocks book.
