I'm so excited to roll out this promotional giveaway and pattern!

I've been asking myself lately: How do I be completely me in the quilting world? By combining my love for designing quilts and piecing them with my love of longarm quilting. And by sharing my passions with you, OF COURSE!

SO! How perfect would it be to give away a custom quilting job to one purchaser of my new Brighten the Corners pattern?! I know! Exciting!

Here is how it will work: 

The Brighten the Corners pattern goes on sale tomorrow Friday, July 15. It includes instructions for one lap sized quilt 50" x 60" and is a steal at $5 USD! To be eligible to win the custom quilting job, purchase the PDF pattern by Wednesday, July 20. From the invoices, I will randomly draw one name to receive the prize and announce the winner Thursday, July 21.

A few things to keep in mind: 

This is a foundation paper piecing pattern. It is easy! I'd consider it a beginners level pattern. I give you pre-cutting instructions so that your fabrics will be just the right size when you paper piece with them. The pattern details really clearly through actual photographs and step-by-step instructions how to make the quilt block. There are no y-seams or partial seams. It's all straight sewing, baby! I've added some extra paper piecing tips as you sew along PLUS a few optional coloring pages!

The winner will have until December 31, 2016 to get the completed quilt top and backing fabric to me for quilting. The quilt top has to be the Brighten the Corners pattern or one made with slight adaptations to the pattern as in with size or other tweaks - I do want to spark your own creativity, after all! :)

I will provide the batting, the longarm quilting (we'll work together to come up with a plan) and I will also pay return shipping within the United States. International friends are eligible to participate, I just ask that the winning quilter pays for the difference between domestic and international shipping rates.

If you have any questions, just ask! I look forward to sharing this pattern and collaborating with one of you on your own fabulous version of this quilt!

Check back tomorrow when the pattern goes live! :)

EDIT! The PDF pattern is now live and can be purchased here:
