Modern Patchwork Giveaway!

Modern Patchwork

I'm giving away NOT ONE BUT THREE Modern Patchwork E-COURSES!

Modern Patchwork was designed with beginners in mind and includes NINE special projects that will not only build your confidence in your sewing skills, it will pretty much give you all the projects you need to give your favorite space a mini makeover!

Make A Statement Pillow

Projects include:
Patchwork Chair Makeover
Stars in Your Eyes Pillow
Make a Statement Pillow
Striped Dino Plushie
Chevron Half Apron
Cross Your Heart Doll Quilt
Cutting Corners Lap Quilt
Hexagon Flower Block
Original Diamonds Are Forever Block
Make Your Own Binding Tutorial
An original bonus block!

Stars In Your Eyes Pillow
Learn how to piece together strips to make a dino plushie and then move onto creating a simple star pillow! Take those techniques and your sewing confidence to tackle a simple quilt that is quite forgiving in the 'match up your corners' department! This e-course allows you to build from the most simple project until you're ready to tackle a patchwork chair makeover and your own statement pillow. I've taken the scary out of patchwork!

Photobucket
I not only give you step-by-step photos and directions, I share how you can customize your own projects to continue creating unique pieces for yourself and friends. You'll be able to search through resource links provided to continue to develop your style and help you learn what colors and patterns you are drawn to.

Photobucket
You'll learn how to make your own binding (as well as my super fast binding technique ) and discover the fun of paper piecing hexagons! You'll have access to two original patchwork block designs for quilting and links to some of my favorite online fabric retailers.

Photobucket
Tell your mama! Tell your friends!
You'll have a chance to enter to win ONE of THREE SPOTS in the following ways:

1. Leave a comment with your name.
2. Tweet about this giveaway and comment to let me know you have.
3. Blog about this giveaway and share the link in the comments section.
4. Share this giveaway on Facebook and link in the comments section.

Doing all four will give you FOUR times as many chances to win ONE of THREE SPOTS!

I'll be randomly selecting THREE lucky winners on Tuesday, February 8th so don't delay!

xoxo,
Rachel
