Betty Pattern Giveaway! (open to all)

I discovered quilting blogs about 3 years ago and boy, was I hooked.  Then I started reading about these "bees" where people exchanged brilliant quilt blocks.  How fun is that?  About two years ago I joined my first bee where we exchanged improvisational blocks.  It was sooo much fun.  Wendy organized the bee and I have been stopping by her blog (Sewing in the Wendy City) off and on since then.  I was so jealous excited for her when she went to Market last month.  Not only did she go to market but she also wrote her first pattern.

I give you...Betty - a classy lady with a wonky style.  :)    

Wendy sent me a copy of her pattern.  The instructions are simple and thorough.  Plus, there is no waste of fabric.  I LOVE that.  I hate patterns where you buy a tons of fat quarters and then only use a bit of them, but I digress...  The finished quilt size is 50 x 65 (the perfect size in my opinion) and Wendy gives instructions and fabric requirements for a twin sized quilt also. 

Not sure if it is your style?  Take a close up look at the same pattern in solids.  I love it!  The colors remind me of my brother's botched quilt.  I need to fix that...someday...

Wendy has offered to give one luck reader a free copy of her new pattern.  If you would like a chance to win, simply leave a comment.  

But that is not all.  Everyone is a winner today!  Now through next Friday (Dec 2nd) you can receive a 10% discount at Wendy's etsy store.  She not only has patterns but kits for the Betty quilt as well as yardage.  Simply enter the code CITY10 when you check out for your 10% discount.

The giveaway will close Tuesday the 29th at 8 am Central Time.  Good luck and have a great weekend!

  8. I love the pattern, i have had some "Hello Betty" for a while and was thinking of making a wonky nine patch out of it in memory of my Mother who's name was Betty. I thought it needed some sashing and this pattern looks PERFECT, thanks for the opportunity.
