300 follower Giveaway!!

GIVEAWAY CLOSED :)

I am blown away at how quickly this little blog is growing!!  I started this blog on July 11th of last year.   So just over 6 months and I find there are over 300 people that are interested in my day to day quilt dabbling.  Wow!!!  All I can say is Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

And the best way to say Thank you is with a giveaway, right!!!  Since we are at 300 followers I figure it is best we have 3 opportunities to win.   I tried to mix it up a bit.  I hoped to find something on our vacation but we never dared venture outside the resort, ah well.  Okay, enough side track, here they are.

Prize 1 - A Holiday Charm pack.  Last week I decided I needed to make something for me and that my house was severely lacking in holiday decor.  So I started cutting up all of my holiday scraps into charm squares.  The result, an adorable charm pack that is perfect for making a table runner or the like for each holiday.  (you can see my post from yesterday for some of the specific prints in the pack)


Prize 2 - Your Choice of Custom Appliqué.  I love the look of appliqué, but I hate cutting it out!!  So last year I bought a slice machine.  Scrapbookers use it to cut  all their paper but guess what, it works for fabric too.  So this prize is your choice of appliqué . . probably 20-ish pieces.  They come out super cute and perfectly cut.  Letters, numbers, trains, frogs, princess crown, reindeer, snowman etc. etc. etc.  If you win, I will send you your options (they are vast.)  Here is an example of it at work.  Perfect letters and a train, car, plane, and bus :)


Prize 3 - 5 Fat Quarters from Robert Kauffman's Zoologie line.  I figured we had to have one prize that appealed to the fabric stasher in all of us :)


Rules Rundown :) 

Since this is a follower giveaway I am going to say that you have to be a follower.  You know, reward those that made this type of thing possible :)  

So if you are a follower simply leave a comment stating - "I am a follower" and then the order of prizes from your favorite to least favorite - ie . . .I am a follower 2, 1, 3

If you are not a follower don't despair, you can become one :)  Simply click on the Follow link or button up on the top left hand of this blog and then leave a comment stating " I am a new follower" and the order of your favorite prize to least favorite - ie  I am a new follower 1, 3, 2

Easy enough right!!!  If you want to be a bit chatty after your required part of your comment  and tell me you love the blog or so on (I know, shameless) that would great but please keep it to one comment per person, duplicates will be deleted :)

I would love it if you added me to your blogroll, liked me on facebook, blogged or tweeted or facebooked about the giveaway, etc, etc, etc, but they won't get you an extra comment for this particular giveaway, but they will make me smile :)

I will close the giveaway Monday night (24th) and use Random.org to choose the winners.  Winners will be announced Tuesday Morning (25th).  

Oh an please, make sure I have a way to contact you :)

Good luck to everyone and have a Happy Quilting day!!!
