On the Run by Anka's Treasures

**This giveaway is now closed!! Thanks for playing :)**
We've got so much love for Heather Peterson. Her quilt designs are always full of fresh, bright hues and surprising, creative shapes. Her new fabric line, Wildflowers, is due out later this month, and while we count down the days in anticipation for that, she's given us another Anka's Treasure to pass the time...and it's fantastic.

It's called On the Run, and it's a collection of 12 table runner patterns using (and all of Fat Quarter Shop sang together) precuts! Layer cakes, jelly rolls, honeybuns, charm squares, and fat quarters -- they're all here. Great for the Rouenneries charm pack you bought just because you had to have some! (P.S. these photos are borrowed from her blog!)

Filled with her gorgeous photographs, straightforward diagrams and instructions, and clear templates (no weird 156% enlargements, yay!) it's definitely a treasure.

In honor of this fantabulous book, she's generously given us 10 (yes, TEN) copies to give away to you all! With the help of all those precuts, these runners would make wonderfully fast and quick holiday gifts!


Just comment on this post to enter, and don't forget to hop on over to her blog to show her some love. Now that their long Minnesota winter has set in, I'm sure it'd help brighten the day. And how cute is that knitted sweater??

Thanks for the giveaway, Heather! And good luck to all y'all!
