savanna bop for siblings together (a giveaway)

savannah bop

Thomas Knauer is still new to the world of quilting, and fabric in general, but this is his 3rd line for Andover Fabrics in less than a year (coming some time soon - it's expected this Spring, so I would imagine around May/June time).

I got sent a heap of advance yardage to make some bits and bobs with and asked Thomas if I could share some for the Sibling's Together project (read all about it if you're not aware here or here). Thomas said yes (of course - he would be a horrible and mean person if he had said no, and I'd no longer call him a friend, which would be sad, because he's coming to visit in July and it'd be all kinds of uncomfortable with me ignoring him and only talking to him through his wife and daughter).

I've split the fabrics into 2 bundles - one more boyish and one more girlish, so you have 2 chances of winning.
The rules are quite simple - if you win you must make a quilt for Siblings Together using the fabrics. It can be as simple as you like, or as crazily complicated as you like, any size between about 50" to twin bed size (something a child could use, the kids in the project are between 7 & 17, but obviously these fabrics are aimed more towards the younger end of that scale). You needn't use them all, you could use just a little bit of these and keep the rest yourself, but you must make something that features Savanna Bop. That's the rule.

You get a couple of chances to win - because this giveaway is going to be on my blog and also Lynne's. One winner will be picked from each blog (if you are incredibly lucky, you might get picked for both bundles - that would be some kind of freaky deaky fluke, wouldn't it?!)

So - simplified rules for those that don't read properly and only skim (me);

- enter here on my blog
- enter on Lynne's blog also
- extra chance for being a follower of my blog(leave second comment)
- extra chance for being a follower of Lynne's blog (leave a second comment on Lynne's blog)
- one winner will be picked on both blogs (2 winners total) in one week (Monday 23rd April) at random
- you must make a quilt (or at least a quilt top) for the Siblings Together project


GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED!

Good luck people!!! And thank you so much for everything you have all done so far, the flickr group pool looks like a gallery of favourite quilts. It's mind blowing and amazing. There will be a whole heap of happy children this Summer, thanks to you lot!

motherissues said...

When Lynne began the project I'd said I was too new a quilter to make a quilt, but I'd really like to try. My (adopted) daughter's relationship with her siblings (raised by relatives) is one of the most important elements in her life and I love seeing the attention this project is bringing to the special concerns of siblings separated by foster care!
