August Give-Away

It's GIVE-AWAY TIME at LA Quilter!!!

This month's give-away is the Stars of Provence kit by RJR Fabrics.



It's the blue colorway that is pictured on the right side of the color chart.

The quilt top measures 84.5 x 108.5 - 11.375 yards of fabric. The floral package you see there is 8.5 yards of backing! That's 19.875 yards of fabric total!

This will be a quick and easy quilt to make. All it is is four-patches and HSTs. Very do-able! You could get this done in time for a fabulous Christmas present for someone!

The drawing will be held on Thursday 8/12/10 at around 9:00 pm California time. It is open for everyone, both here and internationally! (I would do it on Friday the 13th, but I'm kinda superstitious! ;)

To be entered in the drawing, just leave a comment here. No guessing anything this time! Whew!

As always, make sure your comment either links to your blog or else leave an email address. I have to be able to contact you if you are the lucky winner!

Penny says GOOD LUCK! I do, too!

P.S. That yellowing you see on the dark blue fabric is not a stain on the fabric. It's where the picture of the quilt got stuck to the plastic. The fabric is perfect! :)
