Fun Friday Giveaway: Make Your Bed


Martingale & Company, home of that Patchwork Place, is the sponsor of this Fun Friday Giveaway today.


Make Your Bed: Quilted Bed Runners, Pillows, and More to Suit Your Style, by Leslee Evans, is an inspirational new quilt book.  It is packed with nine fun projects to help you decorate your bed and make it look spectacular.

All of the projects in this book come with easy to follow instructions and great visuals, making it an excellent book for quilters of all skill levels.  These projects would also make fast & fun gifts too!

I hope you have a chance to check out this book at your local quilt store, or online at Martingale & Company.   I think you'll enjoy all the new ideas that are shared in this book.  Very creative.

Want to win a copy of this very versatile quilt book?  Simple leave a comment to let me know you would like to win it.  If you like an additional entry, go "like" Martingale & Company on Facebook

One lucky winner will be randomly selected and announced next Friday. 

IF you've never won a giveaway via a blog, you may want to read this post "WANTED: Quilters that never win at giveaways".


The winner of last weeks' Fun Friday giveaway, for a copy of a pattern book by ADORNit,  is

and lucky #44 is lucky Ceceilia.
