Passacaglia - Pattern and Give-Away

I've been collaborating with Linda Franz on making a free pattern for Passacaglia. It is for a table-runner, but if you have fallen in love with the project and want to make a full-blown quilt, the clues are in the pattern. All that is completely off are the fabric-requirements.
The pattern is FREE ! And you can download it right here.

To celebrate the new pattern, and the season, both Linda and I are having a give-away.
Each of us are giving away 3/4 yards of the two fabrics used to make all of the blocks shown in this post. That is more than enough to fussy-cut the 4 blocks needed for the Table-runner.
Yes. They are fussy-cut from just two fabrics. Both from the Mezzanine collection from Michael Miller (Stained Glass and Gothic Arch).

The give-away goes through all of the Christmas gift-giving season as I know it :-) starting today, the 24th of December, because that is when gifts are given in my country, Denmark.

The give-away ends on January 6th, where gifts are given in - among other places - Russia and Spain, to celebrate the Three Kings.

This is what you do :
  • To get one chance to win the fabric, leave a comment on this post on this blog.
  • To get a second chance to win the fabric, go to Linda Franz's blog "All about Inklingo" and leave a comment there.
  • To get a third chance to win the fabric, put the Inklingo button (on the right side of the page of the Inklingo Projects blog, a bit down) on your own blog, and write about the give-away.
So, leave a comment and run over to Linda's blog and leave another comment.

Then, if you're a blogger, write a post on your own blog about the give-away and the FREE Passacaglia-pattern. And please : leave contact-information in your comment/s.
You cannot win if we cannot contact you !

I can't get over how beautiful these are. I most certainly will post it to my blog....I'd be crazy not to.

Beautiful....as usual.

I'm new this technique but am so intrigued. Can hardly wait to get this 'holiday stuff' out of the way (just kidding) and get back to my sewing room! Thanks for the opportunity. Posted on Linda's already but I don't have a blog. Will be sure to tell my sewing friends!

Your blocks are phenominal, they really emphasise how the use of color affects a block....each block is awesome to behold. I love how the Michael Miller fabric works up in this block
