Don't look now - it's a giveaway!

I was stoked recently to win a Don't Look Now pattern during one of the very generous Kellie's giveaways. I'm really excited about using Kellie's pattern - her designs are based on raw edge applique and modern fabrics and they are absolutely beautiful. Her quilting is divine and I hope that one day I can do it half as well as her.

The giveaway I won was just before Kellie went on holidays. Somehow in her post-holiday catch-up she ended up sending me two copies of the pattern. I emailed her asking whether she was happy for me to do a giveaway and she was delighted.

So, leave a comment by midnight Sunday Australian Eastern Standard time to go into the running to win this gorgeous pattern. Instead of random number generator, this time the most creative entry on the theme of applique will win! I will be the judge and no further correspondence will be entered into!!!

In the meantime, if you want to know more about Kellie and her wonderful designs (and where to buy them), visit her blog.

I love Kellie’s patterns. Thanks for an opportunity to win this sweet one.

The dictionary says: applique is a small addition to a standard circuit to enable it to perform additional functions or provide additional features... duh? They obviously never heard of fabric applique.
To me it’s a wonderful way to make a quilt or cushion something completely your own, by taking objects from every day life or nature and translate them into applique shapes using the fabric you love the most. All you need then is some persistance and a well working sewingmachine!

Put a dot over here, and a stripe over there and a lot of little stitches on the edge everywhere and you'll make somehing gorgeous to share!

I have to say that Kellie's work is among the best I have seen. I cannot imagine ever doing work like hers and I don't expect to win the giveaway. maybe one day I may try some applique.

Applique to me is tiny bits of fabric that keep fraying, stabbed fingers and lots of cussing. Machine applique like this pattern would be a different case entirely. It's gorgeous.

Applique to me is the way to pass your time whilst sitting at your son's bedside in hospital - it calms the nerves and gives you something constructive to do when you feel truly helpless - the outer vines on my Batik Baskets will always remind me of this stage in our lives

Oh I LOVE 2nd chances. Her patterns are the little pieces of life stitched together giving a new look on future life.

Thanks, please throw me into the pot.
