My First Giveaway!

freshlypieced-1

You know, I wasn’t too sure about stepping into the blog world. It seemed like a big commitment, and I wasn’t sure if anybody would even read it. But people actually are reading it, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that. I don’t know any quilters in “real life” other than my mom, so to get involved in this amazing online community of creative crafters has been so much fun for me. As much as my sweet husband tries to feign interest in my latest fabric purchase, nothing can replace interacting with people who are genuinely into it.So I think it’s time to say thank you. It’s time for my first giveaway! Two winners!
Winner No. 1 gets: A custom-designed/illustrated blog header by a professional graphic designer—me. : ) I’ll work with the winner to choose colors, fonts, a subject matter for the illustration, etc. Then I’ll create something that’s uniquely yours and can be dropped into your blog template, along the lines of my header above. If you’d like to incorporate photos into the header (either in addition to or instead of the illustration), that’s fine. And if you already have a blog header that you like, I can design a button for your swap/bee instead, or even a custom quilt label that you can have printed on Spoonflower. The choice is yours!Winner No. 2 gets: These fabulous “Mod Charm” fat quarters from Anthology Fabrics.So, you know the rules, ladies. You get up to three chances to win.
Chance 1: Leave any comment here. Tell me what you’re working on, what you wish you were working on, whatever you want.
Chance 2: Comment that you’re a follower. (Reader counts.)
Chance 3: Blog about my giveaway and shoot me a comment on that. I’m still not on the Twitter, so sorry, no chances there.
I’ll announce the winners on Oct. 25. Good luck, and thanks for reading!GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.

    I'm working on some small projects to put in my Etsy shop, because I'm expecting a big fat package of fabric to arrive that will stop whatever I'm working on 😀

    I'm working on a prayer flag quilt that seems like it will never be finished…….so instead of working on it I look up tutorials online!

    What an awesome giveaway! I have a pretty drab blog so I'd love a custom header … the fabric would do nicely too 🙂

    Right now I'm making some star blocks and seeing what they turn into. I'm also staring at a completed quilt top to see if it will baste and quilt itself.

    I am trying to motivate myself to baste the quilts for my girls. They have been pieced since this spring but I can't put it off any longer — it is starting to get cold! 🙂 Anyone else hate basting?

    Oooh such great prizes! I know what you mean re committing to blogging…I'm still new to it and it took me a while to talk myself into it. Now I just need more time to create so that I have something to share on it!

    Right now I'm working (planning stages) on a mini quilt for the 'holiday house' MiniQT flickr swap. I also need to sew the binding onto a little doll quilt I'm making for my daughter's growing collection of quilts pinned to her bedroom walls.

    I follow your blog. The gfc box would not display, so used the follow tab in your header, public option. Congrats on your first giveaway post.

    I'm going to be starting a quilt-as-you-go quilt for my brother to celebrate buying his first house with his girlfriend. I think it will be really cute.
