.MEGA-GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

This weekend is Australian Quilt Market (AQM) in Melbourne. I went last year and had an awesome time. I REALLY REALLY wanted to go this year again, but we had to be practical and with Tommy, building the house and other factors we decided that I would sit it out this year. :(

The good thing is that Make It Perfect WILL be at AQM, thanks to my fantastic distributors, Creative Abundance (THANKYOU Nel, Jacques and co!!) but I won't be. I'm sad that I don't get to go and hang out with the other designers and chat with some of my wonderful customers, but will be there for sure next year!

SO...to celebrate AQM and thank you all for your support and encouragement over the last 18 months, I am going to have a MEGA-GIVEAWAY on the blog! There will be THREE prizes and lots of different ways to enter and get extra entries, make sure you read the "fine print" at the end of the post to make sure you have the best chance of winning.

SECOND PRIZE

I love your patterns...I have not been able to buy one yet so I haven't made anything. I have never made a quilt, kind of intimidating for me, but someday! Sorry you had to miss the AQM! Thanks for having such a great giveaway.
