Book Giveaway

As promised I have an exciting Giveaway for you.

Sew Red Sewing & Quilting Book

This super Sew Red Sewing and Quilting Book.

Sew Red Inside Book

The book is put together by Laura Zander and contains 24 sewing and quilting projects contributed by well known designers. Dedicated to raising awareness to Heart Disease, a portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health in support of the Heart Truth.

I love the oriental look of these two projects.

And I so wish I had time to make these dresses, particularly the one on the left. It is so me!

This necklace really appeals to me too.

But I was most taken with this quilt design by Denyse Schmidt.


And it inspired me to make this cover for a chair.

You will see that I drew straight lines at random across the design with a silver marking pencil and then quilted on these lines.

This book has lots of inspiring projects. There are so many more inside, equally as good, all with clear instructions and full size patterns stored conveniently in a wallet at the back of the book.

Sew Red Pattern Pocket

I have one copy of this book to give away. If you would like the opportunity to win please click on comments at the top of this post and leave a comment. You have until Friday 26th July to take part, after which I will draw the lucky winner.
