Cloth book giveaway with Quilt Girls


Would you like to make a darling Halloween cloth book for a child in your life? Then you came to the right blog post!  The kind folks at Quilt Girls recently sent me two panels of “Five Little Pumpkins on Halloween Night,” and we’re running a giveaway! 

This book panel was designed by Sandra Magsamen for Studio E Fabrics. The story features rhyming prose, which will encourage a young child to read along. And most importantly, the book will be completely huggable!


If you’ve never made a cloth book before, I encourage you to give it a whirl.  It’s an easy project and a wonderful gift to give! Quilt Girls has an amazing selection of cloth panel books, including classic/vintage stories, ABC/123 primers, holiday stories, and contemporary characters. I’ve made three cloth books in the past and blogged about them.

Note: I included some of my own tips and instructions in this post!

 
 

HOW TO ENTER:
To enter, simply leave a comment telling me why you'd like to make a cloth book. Be sure to include your email address. The giveaway is open to US mailing addresses only due to the high rate of international shipping. Comments are open through 3:00 pm (CST) on Monday, October 7, 2019. At that time, I will do a random drawing and announce the winners. 

*Only one comment per person/per email address.  Email me if you are having trouble leaving a comment and I will leave a comment on your behalf. (carriedawayquilting@gmail.com)


Sewing friends, please visit the Quilt Girls website and check out their terrific selection of book panels, quilt panels and children’s fabrics. If you are sewing for a little person in your life, Quilt Girls has the fabric you need.  Just check out this fun reading pillow I recently made using Halloween prints from their store! I sent this off to my nephew just yesterday.  I think he’s going to love it!


Thanks so much for stopping by today, and thank you to Quilt Girls for their generous offer! Good luck, everyone!

  6. I wanted to make one for my great-granddaughter when she was born but didn't get to it. She is now 3 and started to recognize words and since she had a younger brother I think it would be nice for her to read to him. Thanks for all the tips.

    I just love all of your wonderful quilting and finished products. Your ideals and projects are just beautiful!! I look forward to your e-mails. I have four great-grandchildren and would love to make a fabric book. I've made a couple a few years ago for my grandchildren but wasn't really happy with the results. I did print your wonderful directions and I want to make a fabric book and hope it comes out like yours!!! Thank you for the opportunity to win a fabric panel. Carol Spence baglady @ wowway.com
