Thank You! Day 1

*This Giveaway is Closed!*


Today.  Two Prizes!

First: A stack of 30 charm squares made of 14 different prints.  The fabrics are from Connecting Threads.  Originally called 'Pearadise'  you can now find them repackaged as 'Fruit Salad'

 Also included is a length of the Pear fabric 27"x 54" and some of the pink 64" x 10"

I used these to make my pear quilt (that I'm still binding....)
 Second: Two charm packs of Classic Dots.  48 charms in all.
These are also from Connecting threads.  No affiliation.

Today's question:  Do you have your own blog, or are you just a reader of other's blogs? (feel free to leave your blog address in the comments)

- Be a follower.
- One comment per person.
- Giveaway closes at 12:00 PM Central Standard Time,  March 3, 2014
- Don't forget to leave contact information.




Monday through Friday I will do a giveaway each day. Free Fabric, People!  Each post will go live at Midnight.  I will accept comments on the posts for 24 hours.  When the next post goes up, comments will have to be done.  You can go ahead and comment on each post, so you may win up to five times. (I am going to assume that won't happen).

Each post will have a question to answer about yourself, so I can get to know my readers.  If you don't answer the question, I'll delete your comment.  And please, please, please make sure I can reach you if you win.  If you are a 'no-reply blogger' or just to be safe, you can leave your email in your comment.
I will use Random.org to choose the winners each day.  I will contact winners daily, but wait to do the mailing until March 10.  And as much as I absolutely love to read comments, and try to generally reply on regular days, its just an impossibility on giveaways.  Especially five in a row!

*edited.  Winner of the Pearadise fabrics is Betsy, #3.

Winner of the Charm Packs is A Quilter's Mission, #25

I have my own blog and I try to post as often as possible. While I am still working that has been a challenge. I aim for at least two blog posts weekly, but I am happier when I exceed that number.

Hi Rachel, I do have my own blog - quiltielizzie dot blogspot dot ca which I call Wind Chimes in My Garden. I have not been blogging or quilting as much as I would like. I also follow several blogs which I enjoy reading each morning with my coffee. Great way to start the day. I came across your blog and love the name Life of Riley. I used to have a little westie named Riley who I sadly had to put down a little over a year ago. He was 15 and he really had the life of Riley. Take car and thanks for the opportunity to win.

Hi, I am an avid reader of quilting blogs. So far I haven't got one of my own, but maybe one day.

Nykie P said...

I'd love to think that I'm witty and talented enough to have a blog, or that I would have enough time to blog, or that I have anything even a bit interesting enough in my life to share..... But I don't. So I read blogs that I find funny, interesting, quirky and that are full of amazing photos of amazing quilts! Perfect!

Vicki H said...

Hi Rachel, I am a reader of blogs, I do not blog. I have found great inspiration from many wonderful bloggers and am grateful to them for sharing their talents. I follow yours with email.

Michele T said...

I am a happy follower of many, many blogs!! Haven't yet taken the plunge to start my own blog... still thinking about a name (hehehe)... I know, that's no excuse, but I'm just worried about failing because I don't think I have enough time; cripes, I can barely get on top of the dusting ;-)

Maria R said...

Good morning. I do not have a blog, but enjoy reading about 10 of them daily. They are all quilt related blogs.

Mindy said...

So two prizes= 2 winners? Or two prizes for one winner? Either way, I find both sets adorable! I've always been a fan of polka dots. And since Nate is CONVINCED that I could quilt, even though it scares the stuffin's out of me, I could find some fun stuff to do with this. And no, I will probably never show you my first attempt (as yet, incomplete).

Yes, I have a blog. Though due to camera and computer won't-play-nice-together issues, you wouldn't know it right now. =)
