I didn't win (unfortunately; but luckily for the person who did win!), but Elizabeth published her pattern and took orders for it.
I ordered four copies: a couple as gifts, one for myself, and one as a future giveaway.
Well, guess what? That giveaway is about to happen. On the 29th of January, DH and I will celebrate our 32nd Wedding Anniversary! Sometime on that day, I will draw a winner from the entries. I'm not sure yet just how I will do that - random number generator? Name out of the hat? Best comment? It's my giveaway so I'll decide on the day! Haha!
Unfortunately for all you overseas readers, I am limiting this to Australians and New Zealanders (they're not overseas, just over the ditch!). I can hear the moans and protests now, but ladies, and any gentleman reading this, there is a good reason!
Postage from Canada to purchase these patterns was far more than I expected, and also, our Australian dollar value has dropped since then, and as this is not (yet) available to purchase from Australian stores (as far as I know), I am giving the locals a chance to have their very own pattern.
If you love it and want to purchase a copy, you can do so here.
OK, so you want to own the pattern? (Full size applique patterns included!) Here's what you do:
###Leave a comment on this post, saying how much you like it, why you like it, who you would make it for, and what colour ways you would use. Be honest!
Also, peoples, if you want to own it but really don't think you'll make it, or if you only think maybe one day, please admit it in your post. It won't cancel your entry.###
This is another colourway that Elizabeth made up, which goes to show how great it would look any way you wanted!
And we have a winner! I decided to give one entry for each of the questions you answered, and one entry if you had wished me a happy wedding anniversary, and then draw the name out of the hat.
And the winner is..........Pennie! Congratulations! Am I correct in assuming this is to be mainly black and white, Pennie? Can't wait to see the finished quilt.
