*********Giveaway now closed – will be announcing the winner later on this evening!**************
I’ve had a couple of quick mini-giveaways on my Very Berry Fabrics Facebook page recently, but it is definitely time to spread the Liberty Love a bit more with a blog giveaway too. And I do have a reason – it’s time to test out my new business purchases of course..
I’ve had a couple of nice paydays recently, and have invested some of that hard-earned cash in some new dies for my Sizzix Bigshot. I got a larger sized hexie die (this one is 1.5″ – I already have 1″ and 1.25″ options) and a cutter to create teeny 1.5″ (1″ finished size) squares – I am hoping to have Liberty fabric packs made using these dies available in my Folksy and Etsy shops really soon – I’ll keep you posted!
I’ve also invested a rather terrifying XL die to cut four 5″ (4.5″ finished size) squares all at once. I don’t think I realised when I bought it that it is about 24″ long (how I didn’t work that out, what with it being simple maths and all, I don’t really know). It was a bit of surprise when I opened the parcel! This is hopefully going to make life much easier when it comes to putting together my 5″ Liberty square quilt packs (available on Folksy and also on Etsy) and for my Liberty Quilt Club packs.
So to celebrate all these new arrivals and to give myself an excuse to play with the new gadgets, I am giving away a Liberty Quilt Club Membership. But what *is* that exactly? Basically, what happens with the quilt club is that you receive a pack of twenty 5″ squares each month for either 7 months or 4 months, ending up with either 140 or 80 squares in total. You can use your squares to make one of these beautiful quilts which Jess (of The Elven Garden) designed especially for the packs:
…or there’s 1000’s of charm square pack ideas out there on the web, if you want to do something different – how about this fab list on Pinterest for starters.
For the giveaway, the prize is 1 seven month membership to the Liberty Quilt Club – hurrah! – you will receive 140 Liberty squares absolutely free! The giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere, so join in and tell your friends!
