oh, look, a new magazine...(giveaway!)





...and what's that in it? my blooms quilt? and instructions on how to make it? wow, cool. yes, my lovely friends and readers, modern patchwork, published by interweave press is out now and available to buy right here on the quilting daily website!

and i've a treat in store for UK readers of my blog as it's my birthday next week, i thought we needed another giveaway! one winner will be picked and will win not only a copy of the above magazine, but 2 fat quarters of my coated summersville oilcloth fabric.

before commenting PLEASE READ the following:

1. this is only open to UK readers. this magazine is not easily available to buy over here so this is a nice opportunity for a UKer to get some great magazine goodness.

2. to win, i want to have a bit of fun, so please leave a comment telling me your porn star name. to do this, take the name of your first pet and the name of the first street you lived in...so mine for example would be 'ginger church' (first pet was a guinea pig, first street was church walk) admittedly, mine's not hilarious...the best one i've heard is smokey freebush...so  make me laugh people!

3. remember - if i have to find you in more than 3 clicks, i'll pick another winner, so make it easy for me to find you: LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS!

4. i will pick a winner on my birthday, april 24th. good luck!

Oh happy birthday, Lucie! What a lovely giveaway. I believe my name would be Tabitha Horsham...which at first I thought was entirely dull, but then I thought about it for a little longer and realised it's actually rather fabulous.

Charlotte said...

Mine is "Queenie Kelsey", but I wish that my first pet had been my stick insect instead, because his name was "Sticky". Hehehehehe!

Rosie said...

Mine appears to be Sid Grimshaw. More like a Coronation Street name than a porn star one!

I'm only an apprentice quilter but looking at lovely designs like these definitely helps me get creative!

Thank you for the chance to win the magazine. Well depending on whether we are going dog or cat I could be either Beauty Madigan or Spud Bramsen.

Firstly a starlet & secondly a stud!! Either way I would have been famous & made a fortune & worn ALOT of leopard skin prints I am sure.
Oh, hang on I do love leopard skin prints :?

Helen said...

Wriggles Belhaven...posh trollop, I think?

Jessica said...

Oooh, another giveaway? Fantastic!

My porn star name would work out as "Kit West" or perhaps "Kit West Park" depending on how of your street name that you use...

Ladypennyjane said...

Now I am jealous of all the amazing porn names that have appeared, though Wriggles Belhaven is fantastic. Just think next time you need to name a fabric line, you'll be able to mine this list of excellent name for inspiration....

My name would be Barty Huntingdon, which would make me a drag king porn star, so a whole world of possibilities to think about now!

Just seen a beautiful quilt made with your fabrics over at Film in the Fridge. Does that give you the most incredible buzz seeing what other people are making with your fabric range?.

Eli said...

Love your Bloom quilt!
My porn star name would be Bunny Biel, which is a bit too close to bunny boiler for my liking. Will just have to imagine myself with a whip and killer heels...
Thanks for the chance of winning!
