What's In A Name Giveaway !!


I have a design book filled with ideas for quilts and other dreamy items just waiting for the right fabric to come along.  Fabrics really inspire me and when I started to collect some Rounneries from French General I had an idea about what I wanted to do with it.



I ordered in some linen to team with it and began to put together the design.


Most of my designs have wording and hearts or flowers so this one could be no different ............
It's verse reads :-

A Home is built of peace and love
And not of bricks and stone
A place where happiness lives
And memories are sewn



Little by little it came together - Each night I was a few flowers closer to a finish


Just 1 corner stitchery left to do


And then TA DAH !!  Finished - But now I am stuck......  What to call this french beauty?



So this is where you come in - I am running a competition to name this quilt.  The person who suggests the name that I choose to call this quilt will receive all of these goodies :-

 

My "Spring has Sprung" Block in the Springtime Quilt designed by the Gumtree Girls
Gorgeous little Vintage Note Book
5 X Fat Quarters from the Park Avenue Range
1 Skein Variegated Cottage Garden Threads - Pinks and Greens
And a cupcake filled with Fleur De Paris Goodness

So all you have to do is to leave a comment with your suggestion for a name for this quilt   -

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE


If you are a follower you will receive this gorgeous Ceramic Birdie.  Please mention in your  comment that you are a follower.

Giveaway closes Midnight AEST 25th January.  Winner will be chosen and announced on Australia Day 26th Janaury.

HUGS -  FEE XXXXX
