This quilt was actually the first pattern I designed but it didnt get released for a few months due to some layout and quilting problems. It represents the core of Threadbare and also our family. Every stitchery has a direct meaning to Les and I as parents or to all of us as a family unit. You can read more about them here, here, here and here. I often wish I could wrap up every family in this quilt......the world would be a happier place!
So please leave a comment on this post and I will draw 2 winners on the 29th (the actual 3 year anniversary) and remember to leave an email address if you are a no reply commentor.
I have enjoyed the first three years of my little business and look forward to many more.

To quickly answer a couple of questions from the comments......NO, Maria was not part of the giveaway (although if I find that she has attacked my curtains again, it could be a possibility lol) and secondly, if you are not a winner and would like the pattern, grab a cuppa and head over to Fiona's beautiful online shop. She has copies and will be happy to help you out!!
Ok so the 3 winners are:
Had to be a cat in there right?? This project is almost at an end and Ive enjoyed working on it and cant wait to share it and the inspiration behind it with you.
This week Im starting work on a magazine project. I have been brainstorming with a very good friend of mine, who wishes to remain nameless and creditless (dont worry Jules, your secret is safe with me, I wont tell a soul lol) on a summer tablecloth. Im excited about this and cant wait to get it all together!
Hope you have a great week!!

So this is my new design Butterflies and Blooms. The fabrics I used are April Cornells Natures Chorus, which are just beautiful and with some pretty applique, ric rac, old buttons and lace it makes a wonderful addition to the studio.
Defintely a lot prettier than the old beach towel and more practical Im sure.
The top, back and side panels are all pieced and quilted as well. I have 3 copies of this new pattern up for grabs, so if you would like to win one, leave a comment on this blog post and I will draw 3 winners next week. (Please remember to leave an email address if you are a no reply commentor).
Maria kept a close eye on the binding process and she seems to approve, must be the butterflies. She agrees its a cover fit for.....the Princess!!
