I know I've been a quiet blogger of late but it's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and I've taken part in every Giveaway Day for the last 5 years so I couldn't let one go by without joining in. 

Today I'm giving away a copy of Desert to Sea: 10 Quilts from Australian Designers. 
(If you already have a copy of the book there's something for you too so keep reading)

This description of the book sums it up perfectly,

"Take a journey to the great Land Down Under … Ten beautiful, eclectic quilts designed by eight inspirational Australian quilters, reflective of the bountiful colour and beauty of the Australian landscape and culture. Quilt patterns to entice and challenge passionate quilters to make unique quilts that will bring a little of the Land Down Under into your home. Betty Kerr, Charlotte Dumesny, Danielle Aeuckens, Jane Davidson, Lorena Uriarte, Cathy Underhill, Rachaeldaisy and Jeannette Bruce, bring to you quilts made with their favourite techniques, injected with a piece of their own personalities and style. Compiled by Jane Davidson."

Here are some photos of the my quilt Ric Rac Razzamatazz that is one of the 10 projects in the book. 

With a very cute koala!!

Now I know a lot of awesome people have already raced out and bought Desert to Sea (thank you!) so to make it fair if the random selector picks someone who already has a copy of the book I'll make them a special custom made mini quilt instead. 

But wait, there's more! 
I think we all agree parcels are more fun padded with fabric. To tie in with the Aussie theme I'll include some Australian town name text fabric. 

This giveaway is now closed - Thank you to all of you who entered!! Congratulations to Bea of une aiguille dans une botte de foin blog for being selected as the winner.
