#bestbookever [and the winners of the Beyond Neutral Giveaway]

Now that I have made a couple of quilts from the Beyond Neutrals book
and have two more underway,
I realised that I have a couple of other books with patterns by QuiltDad.

Now that I know the way he writes patterns,
I'm definitely going to be taking another look at them for the next quilts I plan.

I really love the cutting instructions and the clear diagrams.
I've made a few quilts over the years,
but not many by following patterns.
But John's patterns work well for me and I'm going to be making All The Quilts!!

I may have done a teeny bit of cyber stalking of John to see what else he has done,
and I found this youtube clip of him talking about the book,
which is super cool. It's nice to hear him talk about the design process and such like.

 Anyway I am so excited to have three copies of the book two give away,
one from me, and QuiltDad himself offered two signed copies (jealous much)
Thanks so much for all of you who took the time to enter.

So without further ado....
the winners of a copy of Beyond Neutrals are....

Gill from Mudbird Ceramics
Leonie from Sunshine x3

I just know you ladies are going to enjoy this book.

and then because my sweet friend Talia was so desperate to win a copy,
I'm going to send one to her too!
