New pattern and Give away winner

Square Dance quilt
Over two years ago I designed a BOM quilt for the Australian quilt shop Material Obsession.
After a successful run as a BOM the pattern is now mine to market separately and is available in my etsy shop here.
The quilt is 76" square and is made up of 4 x 16" centre blocks featuring foundation piecing.The sashing is foundation pieced flying geese.

The circle blocks are appliqued onto a background square using ric rac

There are 4 x 12" blocks in the corners of the large diamond borders.

The whole quilt is a fun project, especially if you use lots of bright "modern" fabrics.

The 35 page pattern comes in a folder with a quilt photo, detailed instructions for each block and borders and original foundations for you to copy and keep.
Nice Xmas present to yourself!
Now for the winner of the table centre - sorry it's taken so long.
Ann-Marie from Sydney is the winner and she had this to say...
"French General is my favourite fabric of all time!! Your designs are stunning. Friends recently did a class with you and are still raving! "
Thanks to those who left a comment and I'm glad it's gone to a good home.
