Jacquelynne is sponsoring giveaways on each of our blogs -- but the prizes are a surprise!
There will be fabric prizes:
(This is just one of her fabric lines, called Fruitful Hands.)
The prizes can be patterns!
It might be one of her inspiring books!
You might win some of her cute notecards!
Jacquelynne Steves has designed gorgeous lines of fabrics, and wonderful patterns, too. We've featured them on Lilypadquilting before, like this quilt, called Apple Basket:
And this Lilypadquilting original design, using her Happy Town line:
All of the daily prizes are awarded by Jacquelynne Steves, and they will be valued at $15 - $30, and each blogger might have a giveaway at their blog, too! Then, at the end of the hop, there will be a grand prize awarded!
Wowser! Now that is a grand prize! . . . fabric, patterns, gift items, and more!
Not even Jacquelynne knows what prize will be awarded to each of the bloggers' daily prizes . . . that will happen when all the hopping is over. And you know we love hopping, right?
You will want to visit all of the blogs, and also visit at The Art of Home, to enter to win the grand prize! (You can enter each and every day, there at her blog, to increase your chances of winning!)
You might like to drop by her Etsy shop and do a little Christmas shopping, just sayin'. (Grin)
If you don't already receive her newsletter of project ideas, recipes, and down-right scrumptious recipes, you can click here and sign up!
Now, what can you win here at Lilypadquilting? Well, Padsworth prevailed upon me to provide one of my favorite kits for your consideration . . . the Tempting Tablerunner, an original design by Sandra Anderson, who blogs over at A Legacy of Stitches. The kit for the runner includes the pattern for the runner, plus all of the fabrics needed to complete it! The fabrics are adorable -- from Jacquelynne Steves' Sewing Room Social line.
Take a peek!
The photos don't do the pretty fabrics justice:
DragonDrop was enjoying playing whilst I posted this . . .

You don't have to follow here, but if you do, you may post another comment-entry!

Our giveaway will be open all week, and we'll choose our winner by random number generator. The winner will receive the table runner kit, as well as the surprise prize from Jacquelynne Steves and The Art of Home!
