New Quilt Pattern and Pat Bravo Giveaway!!

The Lovely Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics asked me a few weeks ago if i would like to host a giveaway on my blog?? What perfect timing!!! I had just finished my latest quilt 'Edens Garden" made from all of her Fabric in the Paradise collection.

Now for those of you who haven't tries Pat's fabric, its printed on a silky soft Premium cotton and you really can 'feel the difference'. Its just beautiful to work with, and has a gorgeous drape.


My 'Eden's Garden quilt measures 69" x 84" (175 x 213cm). It uses 12 of her Fat Quarters and i bought extra yardage for borders and backing.



The flower blocks are all machine pieced using the traditional corner to corner curved piecing technique. Now some of you may be nervous trying curves... but trust me.. its WAY easier than it looks!!



This quilt was fun to sew, the only problem i have now is..... I have seen Pats NEW released lines and I want to make this quilt in every one of them!!

BAZAAR style, is a Moroccan line with accents in fashion. COQUETTE, is a beautiful lavish floral and BOHEMIAN SOUL, is so 70's and so relaxed!! These all ship next year in Feb, March and April... so i spose i still a have time!! Pat also has released her fabulous 'blenders' line LACE ELEMENTS which will be great for a multitude of projects and as the background fabric for this quilt. You can dream over more pics of these collections HERE and Pat's site or you can purchase them directly from HERE....

For Our Giveaway, Pat has so kindly offered 2 FULL Fat Quarter bundles of fabric with 18 Fat Quarters in each!! Each bundle includes all 18 prints in the Paradise collection.


 There will be 2 lucky winners, each winner will win..... a FULL Paradise collection bundle AND my New 'Eden's Garden' Quilt Pattern.


You will have 3 chances to enter :- 
1) Leave a comment on this post telling me.... your favourite FLOWER!
2) If you are a follower of my blog (or a new follower) Leave another comment
3) If you subscribe to Pat's blog (or new subscriber) Leave another comment

When he came to visit me half way through the summer she sent the hugest bouquet of lisianthus - and they lasted weeks. So I have a soft spot for them.
