Monkeys, Chains and Chickens...Oh My

So now that have your attention. 

If you haven't noticed Burgundy Buttons has grown in the last year- I feel like we have more like EXPLODED.  Still, there are so many MORE things I would like to offer, but it's baby steps at a time!  Space is very tight over here at BB!  I am routinely asked why we don't sell patterns...after pondering,  I decide each time that they are one of the hardest things to sell on the Internet.  Well that, and batiks. 

Patterns take a bit of effort to list, you see.. you have to add fabric requirements and selling points.  Patterns are often an after thought...an impulse buy.  It always seemed like alot of work.

But my goodness...have you seen the talent cropping up all around?  So I am taking the plunge over the next few months...patterns here we come.  

To celebrate this earth-shattering event  (Ok, maybe just a tiny event) we are having a giveaway!  OOOOber-talented Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew has donated 4 of her marvelous quilts to 1 lucky BB Blog reader.  That winner will receive 1 of each of the following patterns:


           
      

For your chance to win, complete any number of the following and leave separate comments  here for each.  A random winner will be selected next Saturday.

  • Sign up to follow Allison's Blog here or tell us you already do
  • Sign up to follow our Blog or tell us you already do
  • Tweet about this giveaway
  • Blog about the giveaway (leave us your blog address too!)
That's four chances to win.  Now get to shopping!  Allison's patterns can be found here

Here is a sneak peek of MY plans for Allison's Chain Reaction... made with Moda's Funky Monkey.  (I have a fetish for sock monkeys!).  Find your inner monkey here.
