It's Giveaway Time!

This giveaway has closed now.  

Great news! It's five years since I started blogging, so I've decided to run a giveaway to celebrate.



First a bit of history.  
I started my blog a way to record my finishes, and share them with friends and family.  I never expected to make so many friends through blogging, or to eventually meet so many of them in real life!

My first blog header back in 2014

The main purpose of my blog is still to record my finishes, and that's why I keep my writing simple and let the photos do the talking.


Although I love Instagram and Facebook, I find I frequently refer people to my blog to find out more about how I performed certain quilting steps.  This is particularly true for la passacaglia, where I have a whole tab containing links to the blog posts I wrote while making my quilt.

having fun with fabric at a Kaffe Fassett class



Another popular post is the one I wrote about attending a Kaffe Fassett class in Wellington.  I point people to that post when they ask if it's really worth attending a class with Kaffe and Brandon.  Just look at how much fun we had and how my quilt turned out!


And then there's my cross stitched Gingerbread Village.  A lot of people have questions about that, so I refer them to the tab on my blog for all the answers about where to buy the patterns and the linen.

Blogging is a great way to maintain a permanent record of finishes and tips and tricks, but it's also a good way to make quilting friends all over the world.


Recently I started a weekly link up party called the Peacock Party.  I met a lot of other bloggers through Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it Up Friday, and was sad when it came to an end in December.  So I decided I start my own link up party and now provide a no pressure place for bloggers to share their posts and meet other bloggers.  The Peacock Party runs each weekend, and you're welcome to join in at any stage.

So, onto the giveaway.  

Firstly, a big thank you to Aurifil and my good friend Sheila Christensen who have very kindly provided these prizes.  They have generously agreed to ship these prizes anywhere in the world.

The giveaway is open to anyone who follows me on any platform - via my blog, Instagram, or Facebook.  I know not everyone has time to read blog posts but lots of people enjoy keeping up via Instagram or Facebook.

This giveaway has closed now.  
The giveaway closes on Tuesday 29 January, and I'll announce the winners in next week's Peacock Party post.


1.  Aurifil 12wt pack
If you follow my blog, you'll know I love to hand quilt with Aurifil.  I use both 12wt and 28wt for hand quilting.  This gorgeous pack of 12wt contains colours picked by Jo Avery of My Bear Paw.


2.  Aurifil 28wt pack
The second giveaway is also for Aurifil thread, but this time it's 28wt - slightly finer and more like traditional hand quilting threads.  These colours are selected by Nancy Rink.


3.  Quilts with an Angle by Sheila Christensen
My friend Sheila from Quilters' Lane in Masterton, New Zealand has written a book, and even though it doesn't get released until next week, Sheila has kindly offered to send one to a lucky winner.  Here's a link to it on C&T Publishing if your local quilt shop can't get it in for you.

I'm sure this book is going to be great.  Sheila loves maths, and she's done all the hard work for you, so you can create amazing geometric quilts.



4.  Kiwiana tea towels
Finally, because it's often fun to receive something quirky from another country, I'm going to throw in some Kiwiana tea towels that I picked up on my recent travels.


So, I hope you've got all those instructions.  Here they are again just in case:


This giveaway has closed now.  

Good luck everyone, and thank you for following my blog.

djquilting said...

Congratulations. Amy Butler. Just recently started following your blog. Love New Zealand.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

I don't actually have a favorite designer I know that must be pretty sad compared to all of you that do have a favorite - I'm such a scrappy quilter that sometimes I don't know the name of the designer at all as there is no name on the piece I have. I use a mixed variety of neutrals for backgrounds and all kinds of scrappy colors for the rest. I do love the aurifil #12 thread that you show and from your blog I realized it would be good for hand quilting and I have not tried the #28 that you mentioned - enjoy seeing your quilts

Graciela said...

Hello Wendy, I really like your work, I recently met your blog, and I'm following the steps, I have a blog too but it's been a long time since I published anything, my daughter lives in New Zealand ten years ago, and I traveled several times to visit it, it is a very beautiful country, I am from Argentina, I hope you get lucky in your draw, here it is impossible to get materials for Patchwork, congratulations for the perseverance to finish such great jobs !!!! see you soon!!! oh I forgot my favorite designer is Kaffie Fasset my email is gracielarte@gmail.com

I have been following you from the start or close to it. So happy blog anniversary! I have been blogging myself for eleven year this March, but you have a lot more followers than I do, so good for you! You do make gorgeous quilts and I can see why your are followed. Even though I don't comment often, I do read your posts. I don't have a favorite designer. I usually design my own quilted things from inspiration from several designers. I admire a lot of what you make, but don't think I will make those kinds of quilts for myself. I follow you via Blogger. I hope you continue to blog as so many have left for Facebook. I think I follow you on Instagram too, but I don't look there often enough to even remember, lol!

Julie Fukuda said...

How interesting to hear your start in blogging. It is almost the same for me, except I have been keeping a paper diary for many years. One summer, travelling to a BS Jamboree, my son asked me to bring my diary to the states. When I returned from the event, he had turned that paper diary into a blog. I thought it was just a way that my kids could see what I was making, and was very surprised with the sudden appearance of blogging friends. Those I have eventually met in person are just as wonderful as I had imagined. I seldom buy any fabric as I have enough supply of scraps to last a hundred more years, and often don't even know the maker ... unless it is "Liberty" or something clearly some style. Congratulations on your bloganiversary. Looking forward to many more years!
juliefukuda@yahoo.com

Tambry G said...

I do not have one favorite fabric designer because each quilt I take into consideration the style and to whom it will be given.
I follow you on IG (iquiltalot_fl) and if I win you may DM me on IG. I don't post my email in public forum and hope I'm not disqualified. I also get notifications for follow-up comments as well. Congratulations!!

Heather said...

Hi Wendy. I love all your work. I started quilting after doing cross-stitch and embroidery for several years, so I enjoy reading about all your activities. I don't have a favourite fabric designer. I will use whatever takes my fancy and as current work is a hexagon quilt using Aboriginal fabrics, I am using a couple of hundred of those at the moment. Keep blogging … I miss the Finish it Up Friday blog because it put me in touch with so many other quilters. I'd like to see your Peacock Party become as popular!

Carol- Beads and Birds said...

First, let me thank you for continuing to blog. It's MY favorite social network. I love so many fabric lines but Alexander Henry is pretty much my always favorite. I follow you on my Blogger Reading List through my dashboard. I love your qulits AND you almost make me want to make my own Gingerbread Village. I'm pretty close to giving that a try.

Happy Blogaversary.

Kaffe Fassett is my favourite as I love the deep jewel tones he uses and riotous extremely clever use of colour.

Hi Wendy- favourite designers are Jo Morton and Michelle Hill. Follow you on Facebook and blogs- enjoy your postings on quilting and embroidery - especially the Gingerbread village- find your energy and accomplishments very inspiring. loisrzach@gmail.com

Tish said...

Hi Wendy, so many lovely fabrics but I particularly like Phillip Jacobs designs. I only discovered your blog about 6 months ago, followed a link from Pinterest I think originally, I like blogs better than Instagram etc. I don't put my email in comments but have set it so you should get it and a reply would also reach me. I'm (relatively) nearby in Auckland, NZ. Too hot to do much sewing just at the moment. Tish

Sarah said...

I'm a bit of a kaffe fan but I'm liking Anna Marie Horner too! I love blogland so drop in often to your blog (especially your bits about hand quilting) keep up the good work you are a great inspiration. Xx
