Giveaway Day!

EDIT: The giveaway is now closed! Thank you to everyone who entered.


             
It's Giveaway Day (Week), as you probably know.  If you somehow got here without being aware of Giveaway Day, click on either icon above to head to Sew, Mama, Sew! where hundreds of giveaways are linked up for a huge week of crafty, gifty, goodness.  After you enter my giveaway, that is.

I'm giving away this fat(ter) eighth set (it's cut 18" x 10" rather than 20" x 9") in the colors of the QuiltCon logo.  It's perfect if you want to enter the QuiltCon block challenge - a bit of scrappy variety for your block.  If you aren't planning to enter the challenge, it's a gorgeous set of colors and you are still welcome to it:


All you have to do to enter is leave a comment.  You could tell me that you've never heard of QuiltCon before, or that you're going, or link me to the awesome QuiltCon block that you made or saw, or you can just type in "asdf" or something if you are trying to enter giveaways as fast as possible - I totally understand that and really don't mind. OR you can tell me that you want to swap some scraps with me (see below).

Followers, old and new, get another entry.  Just leave a second comment telling me that you are a follower.  RSS feed and following by email both count, too.  

Entries accepted until May 25, US shipping only.  (Last time I offered international, I paid more than 3x the value of the fabric to send it to the winner in AFRICA).   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now what was that about scrap swapping?   I am in search of scraps for a rainbow quilt that I have planned, and looking for anyone interested in swapping with me.  You give scraps (min size 2.5" square, 2.5" strips appreciated) and I give you yardage in return.  I'm looking for modern fabrics in all the colors in the image below, but particularly the just so slightly orange-y sunshine yellow and just so slightly maroon-y fire engine red.  This quilt is for a child - cute animals, flowers, bugs, etc are fine on the fabric but definitely not required.  You can see some of the yardage that I  have available to trade right here, or if you're interested in unloading scraps but nothing catches your eye, we can discuss what else you might like.  Leave me a comment if you are interested, and I'll get back to you.  Your comment will also enter you for the giveaway, so no need to leave a separate one just for that.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Are you still here?   That's awesome.  Welcome to my blog!  If you'd like to look around a little, I recommend the Quilts and Clothes pages, where you can see pictures of my completed projects.  Clicking on a picture will take you to the blog post for that project, if there is one. 

Happy Giveaway Day!

  5. I've heard of QuiltCon but so far have only seen the solid bundles. I really like seeing the colors in prints.
    I can't help you with the swap cuz we collect the same colors..which means I'm lacking in the same ones you are.
    Hope you get all you need.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I actually have seen bundles for the quiltcon block around the web, although I have never been! I love the colors in the little fabric bundle you are giving away!

    I have all my fabric packed up so I am not sure that I have the exact scraps you are looking for, but I have quite a bit of yardage for a fabric that might be prefect for a border or binding. Contact me sometime next week if you are interested(I am moving over the next few days), I will send a picture and see if you want some. I have never swapped fabric before, but it sounds interesting

    ReplyDelete
  51. What a great set! It's perfect for QuiltCon. I'm hoping that I can get to Austin for the festivities. Would be great to get out of the Midwest in February :) Thanks!
