I thought I’d take a moment to talk about some of the fantastic prizes on offer during the Spring Fling Sew Along.
Here’s a complete list of the prizes for each week:
The first prize that was up for grabs was two patterns of the winners choice from the Kohatu Patterns Etsy store - no sewing required to win this one! The winner simply had to share their intention to participate on Instagram with the following graphic before midnight on February 29th 2020.

How much does it cost?
The sew-along is free, You just need to have a copy of the pattern (Hint: Sign up to the Spring Fling Email updates for a discount) and a public Instagram account.
What if I don’t have an Instagram account?
You can still sew along! If you want you can email pictures of your blocks to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on Facebook, however, only pictures posted on Instagram with the correct tag will be eligible for prizes.
I already have parts of the pattern from Online Quilt Magazine do I have to buy it again?
No. You can make any blocks you like in any combination. So you could make a quilt with 12 of the same flower if you want. If you need certain individual blocks, they are all available in the Etsy Store separately as well.
What do I have to do to win a prize?
