"Further than far" Pattern Giveaway

Hello there. Some of you may remember that I did some posts about a challenge I had set for myself back in April when I set out to make a quilt using only a pile of scraps that was sitting on the table right in front of me. And then, a month later, I explained my pattern process here and why I seem to start lots of projects with nothing to show later.

Well, now the latest issue of Quiltemagasinet is out and so is grandbaby’s quilt, “Further than far”.

Thank goodness I took pictures before I shipped it off to my editor, because it was handed over the very minute it got back and is now in the process of being loved and cherished by the little one. You all know how that works - cuddle factor: high, presentable: not so much.

As I am translating my way through my published pattern these days and have posted quite a few on the pattern blogs already, it’s about time to start celebrating that huge accomplishment. I’m telling you, making the quilt is easy breezy, so is writing up the instructions, but for some reason translating them into English feels like work-work. Writing English is so much easier than translating. Do you too feel the same about your second languages? Just me?

Anyway, it’s giveaway time. The giveaway will be open for 3 days only as there are quite a few patterns to be launched in the nearest future.

If you would like to win a copy of the “Further than far” pattern, pop over to one of the posts and leave a comment there. There is one post for the Norwegian pattern, and one for the English:

Lengere enn langt Mønster
Further than far Pattern

I’ll draw the winners on Thursday evening. The patterns are sent through email, so I have to be able to get in touch with you.

Good luck to all of you and thanks for stopping by

Sorry, the giveaway is now closed!

  3. The quilt came out beautifully. And I have enough trouble writing/thinking in my FIRST language, let alone dealing with a second!!
