One Yard Wonders - Book Giveaway!

Welcome!  I am so excited to have you stop by my blog and celebrate the launch of Fabric by Fabric:  One Yard Wonders.

About me:  My name is Nicole, and I'm a full-time professional who loves sewing as a way to relax and unwind.  I just turned thirty (eek!), and my husband and I moved from Manhattan to South Florida last month.  I recently started the local chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild (we're calling it South Florida Mod), and it's been a blast getting to know other quilting folks online and in person.  I recently had a pattern published in the new Modern Blocks book, and I am so honored to be a part of the new One Yard Wonders book.



Book backstory:  In Spring of 2010, I saw a request for pattern submissions.  I tried to create a project that would be fun, easy and functional.  My husband and I were about to take our official honeymoon to Italy, so a travel-related project was perfect!

I drew up a few patterns and originally made the project in oilcloth, which was waterproof and colorful.  Here are the photos from my submission packet:




The editors accepted my submission!  They sent me beautiful Echino helicopter fabric and added a few related items from other contributors.  The project is great for making quick gifts for family/friends who like to travel or are going on vacation.  The finished project is on page 127 of the book and is called "The Jet Set."  I hope to get photos of the actual book page in the next few days.  :)  Here is the fabric, in the meantime:



To celebrate the release of the book, Storey Publishers has generously offered to give a free book to one of my lucky readers! 

Prize:  One hardcover book of "Fabric by Fabric:  One Yard Wonders."

Entry Deadline:  Friday, December 23rd at 9:00pm (Eastern time).

How to Enter:  Leave a comment at the bottom of this post!  If you sign up to follow my blog (or you already follow it), leave another comment and you'll get a second chance to win!  If you blog about the giveaway, leave a comment (with a trackback), and you'll get a third chance to win!

Notes:  U.S. addresses only.   Please include your email address or another way to reach you.  If a winner does not respond within 3 days, I will choose another winner.

Good luck, and happy sewing!  If you use my pattern, please send me a photo!  I will be happy to post it on my blog.  :)
