Marcie's Maze Quilt Pattern and a Giveaway

Ugh! What a miserably wet weekend we had! There was an upside to that however.... I snuggled up on the sofa for two whole days solid, calculator to one side of me, mug of tea to the other, laptop where it's designed to be (on my lap!!) and wrote up the pattern for the quilt I've just finished.
Do you like the name I've given it?
There's no special reason for it, other than the pattern is designed like a maze and I liked Marcie because of the alliteration - I don't know any Marcies.
Now writing up a pattern is a long job and I can usually only do it in about 2 hour stints, but this weekend I worked continuously - well it was too cold and wet to do anything else!!
I had written copious notes and taken lots of stage by stage photographs as I made the quilt, so it was  a case of just sticking with it and checking and re-checking the maths, adjusting the photos in Photoshop and getting the layout as good and easy to read as I could.
The quilt I made was a lap quilt, but I've included instructions for 6 sizes from Baby to King. The first three sizes use just one jelly roll, the twin and queen use two and the king size needs 3 jelly rolls.
The pattern is for sale in both my Etsy and Craftsy shops and there is also a link in the blog sidebar.

But as we all need something to cheer us up today (I'm sure this wet weather stretches from coast to coast here in the UK) I'm offering this pattern as a giveaway to one lucky winner!
There are no hoops to jump through, just leave a comment below saying how you follow my blog, to be in with a chance to win a PDF copy of this pattern. If you are a no reply blogger, be sure to leave an email address where I can send it to if you win.
The giveaway is open to all followers, wherever you live in the world, and even if you  happen to have sunny weather right now (just don't rub it in by telling me you have!)
The giveaway closes at Midnight GMT on Thursday October.
Good luck!!

  12. I need help with your quilt pattern Picnic in the Park. First I did not realize you used 9 different patterns until I was half way through, it would be helpful to add this to the instructions. Also what size should the squares be after they are sewn. If you turn them side ways they are one size and then when horizontal they are another size. I don't see how they become uniform when adding the white strips. HELP PLEASE quick I need to have this done this week.
