Well, it's a good week for a giveaway!
Martingale Publishing has been very generous to offer the first giveaway, which is, of course, an Autumn Bouquet book. Yay!
For New Zealand winners you will get a printed copy in the post.
For overseas winners, Martingale will email you a digital copy.
To enter in the fun, all you need to do is tell me in the comments below.
Apart from your sewing machine what is your favorite sewing notion? Something you could not live without.......
Get ready to begin...... the next date is 17th October. I will be chatting about how I select my fabrics. How I make color choices, what's in my scrap bin. How I prepare and store my fabrics.
All fabric requirements are on page 13 of the Autumn Bouquet book.
If you are still waiting for your book to arrive, don't worry..... there is still plenty of time. You can join in the sew-along at any time and work at your own pace.
I can't wait to share all my tips with you all and learn your tips too. Sharing the process is so much fun so please post pictures to my facebook group or Instagram.
You can follow along on the Sew Along via my blog posts, Facebook group and Instagram. There will be a hashtag on Instagram #treasuresfromthescrapbin you can post to or you can join my Facebook group so you can post your pictures there and share with everyone else in the group.

How to press a Flying Geese Border ? This is the question I was asked so I have done my best to answer as it is not exactly what you might be expecting to see. Read more to see how I pressed the seams to get nice flat intersections.
Making four Flying Geese units at a time is a great time saver, and a wonderful method. I love to oversize the units and trim them down to the correct size for perfect blocks. Read how I go about making these versatile units that I use in almost every quilt I make.
