I'd love to give these five pieces of fabric paper to one lucky winner as a continuing celebration of the publication of "Pretty Little Mini Quilts."

Twenty pages of this 144-page book is dedicated to the basics of creating "pretty little mini quilts." "This chapter provides the information you need about tools, materials and techniques to make all the quilts in the book." It is well written and gives any beginning art quilter the necessary tools to be successful in creating and finishing any quilt or sewing project. It explains about how to attach hanging sleeves, borders and bindings and more. Beginning quilters are sure to refer to this section time and time again.

It also contains information that are helpful reminders to advanced quilters such as closing the blade of the rotary cutter after each cut or using colored head pins to mark your stitching starts and stops.

I'll give away one copy of this book, graciously provided by Ray of Lark Books, for this special giveaway. More details coming soon.

Thanks for stopping by and entering in yesterday's giveaway. I enjoyed reading your comments. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Be sure to leave your name here, too. Tell a friend.

The winner of these fabric papers will be announced on Monday.

How would you use these fabric papers?

Did you see "Alice in Wonderland"? I saw it today and would go to see it again. It was a magical treat. It brought back memories of a grade school production when one of my daughters played the blue caterpillar (and I designed and sewed her costume! Oh to be young and fearless.) . . . "Whooooo . . . are . . . youuuuuuu." Hah!

Hope you're enjoying the weekend.

What LOVELY papers!
I would make them into fabric and make either fabric postcards or ATCs or maybe even a large piece.
THANKS for the chance to win them!

Regina said...

Ooh! Gorgeous, Fannie.
These would be great for my art journals.

Kelly said...

these are beautiful Fannie! I think I'd use them for art journaling as well!

That looks like a wonderful book. I love to make small quilts and art pieces.

Another great giveaway Fannie - all those luscious papers and the book too. I've made a couple of little quilts using fabric papers that I've made myself, and it would be fun to make another one using your fabric papers. And I'm sure I'd get some great ideas from that book!

Beth said...

I haven't seen Alice in Wonderland, but it sounds good. My son saw it and said it was good!

The papers looks great! I think I would have to create a collage with them...but I would have to wait and see them up close before I decided. Inspirations comes at the most unexpected times!

Brenda said...

You are such a creative and generous soul Fannie. Your fabric papers are stunning.

Sue K said...

I love your papers!!! I would probably use them in my mixed media paintings and use the scraps left in one of my journals. Wonderful giveaway Fannie!!

Oh, another one :)). Thank you for "sparking" my imagination with these fabric papers...I think that I would definitively make some "mixed-media paper flower brooches" with them...crunched and embellished and wear them proudly. How does this sound ?
I must keep an alert eye over your blog, it's a fountain of wonders :).

Diana Evans said...
