Happy Blogiversary to Happy Quilting!!!! (Celebrate in Giveaway style :)

GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Oh my goodness, Oh my goodness!!!  Happy Quilting is a year old today!!!  And I have to say, what an amazing year it has been.  I originally created this blog so that I would stop taking over the "family blog" with all of my quilting pictures.  That was my only purpose.  And in 1 year, one tiny year, later it has grown in leaps and bounds!!!  I am just blown away by the amount of growth!!  And I am just thrilled with that growth and the opportunities this blog has given me in my little quilting corner of the virtual world.

And it would not be possible without all of you!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you out there!!!  For those that read Happy Quilting, that leave sweet comments, that make my tutorials, and that generally just make me feel so happy in this quilting endeavor!!  You all are what makes Happy Quilting so fun!!



So . . .  to say thanks, with the help of some of my amazing sponsors, we will be having a few giveaways this week in celebration!!  Yippee Skippee!!!!  (Who doesn't just love a good giveaway)

Up first is a sweet sweet giveaway from The Intrepid Thread.  I just have to say that Julie's shop is amazing and if you haven't checked it out, you are missing out.  She always has great deals going on and she has a super fun Friday giveaway each week on her blog :)

So what does Julie have for you to possibly win??  How about a stunning Fat Quarter Pack of Wrenly!!!!  Aren't these just amazingly, absolutely, adorable!!!  There are 13 Fat Quarters in the Mandarin and Gypsy line :)


The Nitty Gritty . . .   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 The Intrepid Thread Blog or become one and leave a comment.  Leave me any old comment about The Intrepid Thread, like I said, it is an amazing shop.

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 giveaway karma is a wonderful thing :)


Giveaway will be open until July 17th and a winner will be announced on the 18th :)  So get commenting :) And that's all!!!  Now go grab yourself a piece of cake and celebrate Happy Quilting's 1 year Blogiversary with me!!  Yipeee Skippee!!!!
Pin It!
