Fiona's 4000

Back in April I clocked up 4000 Followers over on Instagram so I decided to host a little giveaway.  As I had just completed my Circle Game Quilt, I decided to offer the winner a custom made mini quilt or cushion cover of their favourite Circle Game block.  

Here is a copy of my original post with the T&Cs: 

@BendigoLioness "Wow, my counter has just clicked over the magical 4,000 followers! I cannot thank you all enough for the support, encouragement, laughs, friendships & inspiration that you all give me. As promised, I have decided to offer a little giveaway to celebrate. 🍾 I know that a lot of you have shared my journey as I have made my "Circle Game Quilt" over the past 12-months. Many have commented on it, some have conspired to "steal" it 😜 & some have offered to buy it, but sorry, I won't be parting with this baby - it was my therapy after the death of my purr-baby Gemma and has helped me to cope with the anguish of her loss. However, as a way to say THANK YOU I would like to make one of you either a mini quilt or a cushion cover in the colour scheme of YOUR CHOICE, based on one of these blocks (I'll let you choose which one too). Yep, I will custom make it for you! πŸ˜ƒ 

To enter: 

1) Regram this picture on Instagram with the hashtag #fionas4000 

2) On your regram tell me how I can colour your world - what is your preferred colour scheme? (Some examples: brights, mono, pink with purple polkadots, low volumes with a pop, whatever YOU want. Individual designers not guaranteed but I will do my best to accommodate your colour preferences). 

3) Please state your preference of "mini quilt" or "cushion cover" on your regram. 

πŸ”ΈI will close this off on Saturday 09 April 2015 at 5:00pm AEST & after verifying entries will aim to announce the winner during #saturdaynightcraftalong . 

πŸ”ΈEntries open to all Instagram friends & followers worldwide with a public account. 

πŸ”ΈNo private or giveaway accounts & human accounts only please πŸ™€ I will contact the winner directly to get further details from you before I start to make your prize.

πŸ”Έ For the record this giveaway is purely of my own and is no way endorsed by @jenkingwell . "The Circle Game" is a licensed pattern by Australian designer Jen Kingwell and I have bought the pattern for my personal use."

@nanaani83 - Anita Sharp was the winner
The winning entry was number #6 which was Anita Sharp from Fresno, California (USA). 

Anita is a fellow Kaffe Fassett fan and she requested a mini quilt made from bright jewel tones.  She chose block number 13 and after consulting with her on colours & fabric options, I set about making her prize.  

Anita's finished prize.

This thank you is a few days late, and I hope that the lovely Fiona @bendigolioness accepts my apologies.

I was the winner of her 4000 follower giveaway, and she created this incredible mini-quilt just for me! The colors are so vibrant and beautiful- absolutely stunning, and her handwork is impeccable!!!

Miss Fiona also included some Australian tea, an adorable spoon rest, and a variety of chocolates that I have had to protect from the maws of my greedy menfolk! 

Fiona - I absolutely love this package - Thanks from the bottom of my heart!!! πŸ’—πŸ’œπŸ’™❤😻 


Thank you for your feedback.
