Giveaway: Carefree Quilts book by Joy-Lily

Another book sent to me by the publishers- and this one appeals to the lazy and maths-shy side of me! The book is ideal for those of us that like to just get stuck in and make, without having to do a huge amount of prep work or worry about perfect seam allowances.

This book has 13 projects- not just quilts- there’s a tablerunner, tote bag, placemats (above) etc made from flip blocks or stack and slash blocks. If you like wonky quilts and modern patchwork, this could be a nice book for you. Here’s some photos of my favourite pages…

So would you like to win my copy of this book? There’s 3 ways to do this…

1) Leave a comment here, if you want inspiration, visit RUCraft and tell me which craft book there is at the top of your wish list.

2) Like me on Facebook and leave me a comment saying you have done so

3) Tweet this giveaway and the link to this page, you can use this text if you like: “I’ve entered the Carefree Quilts book giveaway on @pennydog’s blog, https://pennydog.wordpress.com/2012/08/06/giveaway-carefree-quilts-by-joy-lily/“. Come back and comment that you’ve done that and leave your Twitter username.

So that’s a total of 3 comments to leave, this giveaway is open internationally until Friday 10th August at 6pm GMT.

Good luck!

    I love the look of that book….I did see Fresh from the Clothesline there, tho. I would probably add that to my shelf if I had a few dollars extra this month. LOL

    I’m currently learning how to sew and quilt, so I think Sewing Machine Basics would be a good book for me. Thanks for giveaway!

    I think (other than Carefree Quilts) my fave book at RUCraft is 101 great ways to sew a metre- as when i see fabrics i like i often just buy a metre, and then realise its either not quite enough for big projects, and too much for little projects! But much anticipated book is Little Stitches from Aneela Hoey, really looking forward to that one too!!
