Stash-Busting Blog Hop & Giveaways


Hello Cute People, and Welcome to Vivid Felicity! 



Today is my turn for the Stash-Busting Blog Hop. Yippie! Whether your a current follower or a new comer, be sure to subscribe so you'll be able to receive all my fun follow up posts. You can also find my other social media sights to your right.

Let me introduce myself to those of you who are here for the first time. My name is Veronica. Not Vivid or Felicity, as I've been addressed before :D. Though these are cute names! Hmm.. Neway, I'm a self taught quilter, fabric lover, and currently a very serious Kikki K planner addict. Quilting and Sewing has been a part of my family for generations. I'm pretty proud to carry on this great tradition.
 
I'm so happy your here today. I'm going to do a book review for Kim's new book release Scrap Happy Sewing, and Stitch Craft Create Magazine's upcoming release 50 Fat Quarter Makes.

Scrap Happy Sewing by Kim Kruzitch, also Retro Mama is absolutely adorable! The layout is fabulous, gorgeous photos throughout, and really easy to follow instructions. I wish I would have had more time to sew something up, but given that I wasn't able to, let me show you a couple of my favorite picks!

I'm definitely going to be sewing up this great Tote Bag..


Super cute pleated pincushions..


Adorable makeup zipper pouches..


And so many other great projects! How can you just choose one?

Stitch Craft Create Magazine's 50 Fat Quarter Makes is also a wonderful book, with so many great projects geared towards using, what else? Fat quarters of course! The layout is great, and I can not tell you how exciting it is to see each chapter sorted by the amount of FQs you will need for each project! Unique and absolutely functional.

Check out these great projects I've picked out. A very cute cushion cover...


A Chefs Potholder..



How about this great house table runner..


Endless possibilities! 

Both books are great for the confident beginner, well written, with easy to follow directions, and beautiful photos throughout. What do you think? Would you like a copy? Well your in luck! I'm giving away one eBook of your choice to two lucky winners! All you have to do is subscribe to my blog & leave a comment below, telling me what which book you'd love to have :D

I'll choose two winners, and announce them right here on the 1st of May! Ends April 30 at 12AM MST. 

Love giveaways? We'll be sure to check out this Giveaway!
