Sponsored Giveaway: Featuring Lisnaweary Quilts

I'd like to introduce to you...
Lisnaweary Quilts!!



disclosure: this is a sponsored giveaway


Karen is the quilter behind Lisnaweary Quilts. She is married to a farmer and is a stay at home mom.  Her four children range in age from 8 to 16.  They all live in the quiet Co. Tyrone countryside in Northern Ireland! {I'm slightly jealous since I want to visit there but haven't had a chance yet.}

"The whole family, apart from me are members of a Silver Band, I am not musical but love Musicals!  I saw Wicked last year and its now my favorite."

"I have been an keen crafter ever since I can remember, about 14yrs ago I saw a Quilt exhibition organised by a local group and caught the patchwork 'bug'! In 2009 completed a 2 year part time course in Patchwork and Quilting.  I then began designing patterns and teaching workshops.  I have been fortunate to have several patterns published in Irish and British patchwork magazines." 

Recently Karen was featured on the Moda Bake Shop with her Chair Cover Tutorial.


 "I have an online shop which I am constantly adding to, I started blogging so I could join the great online quilting community! My problem with blogging is remembering to take the photos, or when I reach for the camera someone else has disappeared with it! I am a member of the Quilters Guild of Ireland."

--

Karen has a great shop with original patterns, kits and more!
I love how she made the blocks look like packages in this quilt... so cute!

Wow - don't you love a giveaway? I love entering them, but very seldom win. But I get exposure to so many wonderful blogs and shops, so it's not really about the giveaway, it's more about the new places and faces I find, and the new friends I sometimes make along the way.
