Modern Quilts Giveaway

It is giveaway week! I have two copies of Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe to give away.
I am still so excited to be in this book with such amazing quilters. It is full of wonderful quilts and every time I look through it I decide a different quilt is my favourite. I found a bit of time over the weekend to have a play around with some of the quilts and blocks in this book so over the next week I will share what I have made.
This is my quilt from the book. I used a Moda layer cake by Kate Spain to make mine with a white background.
I tried a few different colour combinations over the weekend. This one uses a background fabric with little red polka dots.
 I used a dark grey background for this one and some low volume prints.
 One of my favourite things to do is play around with blocks and colour combinations in Electric Quilt. I still haven't got the grey, yellow and teal colour combination out of my system.

 And you can never go wrong with grey and red.
So to be in the draw to win leave a comment by Wednesday night Western Australian time 19th June with your current favourite colour combination and you could win a copy of the book.
Yes I will post them anywhere!
