Hexagon quilt kit giveaway

Many moons ago I promised a giveaway for a kit to start a hexagon quilt. I really wanted to do this as I was given a kit by Laura (who also has an excellent tutorial here on how to do it) so to pay it forward I wanted to give one away too. You can see my progress here  in case you missed it yesterday.

Here is the kit you could win, It has two reels of thread, a selection of cotton fabrics to make the hexagons as well as a few made up. There is a packet of papers (I cheat and buy mine from the quilting shop) but you can use one to make your own template and make your own as Laura suggests in her tutorial. I've sewn 3 hexagons together to start you off too.


So to win the kit you need to do two things...

  1. Be (or become) a follower
  2. Comment on this post telling me what piece of fabric you would put into your quilt that most represents you? I have a couple of giraffes and lots of green in my quilt to give you an idea.
The winner will be drawn at random on Sunday 9th June

Good luck and thank you for reading my blog.

Ps don't worry if you don't fancy the quilt kit, It's my blogversary soon so I'll have another giveaway then!

  1. Ooooh so many - I'd have to start with something pink and dotty, then something football, something to represent the textile history in my hometown. Oh and giraffes are always good too :-)
    You've got me thinking now....

  5. Would you mind if I entered - it feels wrong after turning down your kind offer of fabric to help with my hexie cushion - but I didnt want you to think I'd left that comments hoping you would offer (if you know what I mean - my mind works in funny ways) - So at least if its a lucky dip I'd feel better gah! hope this makes sense xxx
