Finishing Up with a Bang!!! (of a giveaway, that is :)

Well all good things must come to an end I suppose.  Today is the last day of  Happy Quilting's 1 Year Blogiversary Celebration.  But don't be sad, You are sure to like the grand finale planned.  Again, I wanted to stop and take a minute to thank all of you out there that have supported Happy Quilting over the last year.  I am sorry I haven't written back to all of your giveaway comments ( I was a little to busy, but know that I did read them all :)  but they have made me laugh, cry, and in general just smile a lot!!  You all are the greatest!!!  I look forward to continuing to get to know you and to seeing what the next year has in store for Happy Quilting :)

So, on with the Grand Finale!!!  If you have followed my blog for anytime you will know that Burgundy Buttons is one of my awesome Sponsors!!   Burgundy Buttons is a terrific on-line shop and has excellent customer service.  And they always have amazing sales going on that you will find all about on their blog.  Right now, they have a different sale every day for a Christmas in July celebration.  So much fun!!! Leah is such an amazing woman and I have had a great working relationship with her for quite some time as she is my partner in making up cute Quilt Kits for my tutorials.


Just recently, we started a new venture of Pattern Making!!!  I designed and made the pattern and Leah got it all printed up and has it available in her shop.  My first pattern is called Summer Breeze and I am happy to announce that is now also available in a PDF form for email or instant download.  This is a great option for those of you oversees where the shipping tends to be more than the pattern :)  You can find it for purchase at Burgundy Buttons or in my little Etsy Shop :)


So why do I bring this all up??  Well because today's giveaway is for a Summer Breeze Quilt Kit!!!!!  You got that right, everything you need to make the quilt top, including the pattern!!!!  That means you get the Summer Breeze Pattern, a Strawberry Fields Layer Cake, 3 1/2 Yards of the solid background, 1 Yard for the Border, and 1 Yard for the Binding!!!  How is that for a rocking ending!!!!


Okay, so I know you want a chance to win this so here are the deets!!!  (pretty much the same as all week long, I bet you are an expert by now :)  You have three chance to win, and please, leave a separate comment for each (for a total of 3 comments max :) If you leave one saying I did it all, Mr. Random.Org will only count it for one.

  1. Be a follower of Happy Quilting or become one and leave a comment.  Your comment doesn't have to say "I am a follower" anything will do  (as long as it is clean :)  (It's easy, just click follow up in the top left hand corner :)
  2. Be a follower of Burgundy Button's Blog or become one and leave a comment.  Leave me any old comment about Burgundy Buttons.  They are such an amazing shop.  If you are just discovering them you will be super excited!!
  3. Alert the Media - Post on facebook, twitter, or your blog about this giveaway.  Leave a comment saying where you wrote and a link :)  You can post on all 3 sites but it only gets you one entry. But remember, the giveaway juju is a good thing!!!
Giveaway will be open until July 21th and a winner will be announced on the 22th :) 

And if you have missed the other celebration giveaways this week you can find them here and here :)

Oh, and one last thing.  I saved it until the end because I didn't want it to be a downer.  If you happened to have already bought my Strawberry Fields Pattern thank you and I need to inform you that there was a typo.  You can find the correction to it under the Pattern's tab up at the top of the blog.  The typo has been fixed on the PDF version :) I am sorry, I checked it a million times but sometimes things slip through.  Please accept my apologies for any inconveniences this may have caused you.   



Thank you all and may you all have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
