Abbey Lane Quilts Sponsored Giveaway: Fab Five

Kindness, like a boomerang, always returns. –Unknown

One of my most faithful readers e-mailed the ladies over at Abbey Lane Quilts to tell them about all the fun I’ve been having making and giving away Abbey Bags. They contacted me to let me know they thought the fabric choices I used in the Abbey Bags was great and wanted to know if I would be a pattern tester for them {I’m still considering because my day job is turning out to be more hours than I signed up for}. They sent me a copy of each of their books {which I’m just dying over — I have a few new obsessions!} and also signed a copy of each of their books and for me to give away to you! How is that for awesome!?! Let’s hear it for Janice & Marcea of Abbey Lane Quilts!

This giveaway is for a signed copy of the Fab Five quilt book. I absolutely love this book. Included are instructions for a really fun, basic quilt with nine different variations of that quilt. It really is everything the name promises — FABulous! Check out the listing on their site for pictures of the different ways you can make this quilt and then come back and tell me which quilt you love the most. I think I'm going to start with the Stars & Stripes. Backed in denim, it would be the perfect summer picnic quilt!

Hands down I like the lots of dots. I think it is because of the fresh clean way the greens play with each other. With all the lovely snow we have been having the green reminds me of of Spring.

That is so awesome that this opportunity has come your way.

I didn't know you worked but being a pattern tester for them would be awesome!

Barb said...

I blogged on my left sidebar for you. I have gotten to where I do not like to enter giveaways if I don't feel like blogging about them or have time to blog...that is if they ask us to blog....Thanks for the chance.
