Inspirational Book and...Book & Bag Giveaway!

 Have you seen this yet?
 Jane Brocket has been inspiring me for a long time. About 4 years ago I stumbled across her remarkable blog Yarnstorm. Jane has taken her readers on a wonderful ride, creating her new and current blog Jane Brocket, becoming a recognised author, and all the while her passion for colour, creating (quilts and knitting), cooking and photography have shone through. Jane's tulip garden alone is magnificent!
 Of course when Jane's new quilting book was released, I didn't waste a second before I purchased it! The Gentle Art of Quilt-Making is truly inspirational and the lovely Jane herself has given me permission to show a photo or two from her book. One of the things I love about the book is that Jane has written stories about her inspiration for each of the 16 quilts featured.
Jane's 'Russian Shawl' quilt is dripping with colour and a favourite of mine. The way she has displayed the quilts in her book are eye-catching.

'Hammock' in the Summer Day version is another quilt that caught my attention, Philip Jacobs luscious Delphinium fabric stars here. I can just imagine lying in a hammock on a summers day with a good book and and an ice cold drink!
In the introduction to Jane's book she tells us that what is important in quiltmaking is enthusiasm, beautiful fabrics and a good measure of inspiration. I am certainly inspired by this wonderful book, and to help share the passion, Jane has generously arranged for Penguin books Australia to send me a book to giveaway to you, Yay!

To make the celebration bigger, I went past my 100th blog post a small while back, so I am going to giveaway two 'made by me bags' as well.
To enter this giveaway simply comment on this post. I will pick 3 names out of a hat next Friday afternoon Australian time. I will ship worldwide, so anyone can enter. Please make sure your email address comes through so I can contact you.

The first name drawn will be the winner of Jane's gorgeous book.
The second name drawn will win one of the flea market fancy bags.
The third name drawn will win the black and white bag.

Ok, go for it and good luck! xo

Jackie said...

What a fabulous giveaway!! Congrats on over 100 posts!! I just saw that book this past weekend. The cover is different here in the states, but the content I am sure is the same. You are so right there are some wonderful quilts, many using Kaffe Collective fabrics. I almost bought right then, but hesitated as I didn't have the cash in my wallet. So I will put my hat in the ring for the giveaway!! But, of course, one of your lovely bags would be absolutely wonderful to have!! Thanks Cathy for the opportunity to be in the draw!! I hope you have hundreds more posts, you are truly inspirational.

Jo Ellem said...

This is lovely, the book looks amazing. All ways read your blog.

ranette said...

Hi Cathy...great giveaway....I'm thinking the book is a must for my collection even if I don't win it :o) The bags are terrific!

You always inspire me to reach out of my comfort zone. I'm working with Kaffe fabric now and I always think about you when I sit down to sew.

Donnelly said...

I am sure I missed the deadline, but I still wanted to comment. The bags are gorgeous! Your quilts are always such an inspiration to me. I finally found a quilt store about 35 minutes away that sells Kaffe fabric. Now I just have to save my pennies, because it is too hard to choose. I need them all.
Have a great day.

Cathie said...

Great giveaway Cathy...count me in!

Catherine said...

What better reason to comment!? I discovered your blog via Jane's and am finding it equally inspirational. Your quilts are so beautiful.

Jennifer said...

Congratulations on your 100th blog. I am new to your blog but love reading it now that I have discovered it. Although I live in England I spent many years in Melbourne.

I have been collecting fabrics to make a quilt to add to the pieces of fabric that I have from my girls' curtains and bedding fabrics so that as they grow older and change their rooms I can remember their baby, toddler and young childhood by fabric, so Jane's book would be extremely helpful. Also, I have coveted your black bag since I first saw it so if I'm very lucky I could be the third name drawn - I can always buy Jane's book but obviously not your bags! Thank you for the opportunity.

Jan said...

100th blog -wel done Cathy. I would love to be in the giveaway.
