Yep, it's a GIVEAWAY!

Because this is National Sewing Month, and because I love my followers, I thought I would host a giveaway every Friday in September. When I realized that I had over 800 followers I really wanted to do a little giveaway for all of you sweet peeps that keep coming back.

So for today, my first NSM giveaway, this is what I'm giving away.

I purchased this pattern at a major Quilt show in Chicago. It features large flowers as it's focal fabric. Sooooo............

I am including 1 1/2 yards of this floral fabric with the pattern to get you started.

Now here's the low down, what you need to do to enter this giveaway is.............

Leave a comment on THIS post :-) Yep that's it. No hoops or games. AND followers can leave a second comment for an additional entry. YAY!

Next Friday I will have another giveaway, so come back and see what it will be :-) I will draw ALL the winners October 1st.

Happy Quilting!

Dianne Mitzel said...

What lovely fabric, congratulations on your super blog, I follow it daily..

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Wow! Congratulations..I loved your post on lace making. Isn't it also called tatting, or is tatting something different. I adore lace and hand made lace is a treasure to find. I remember my Mom telling me her wedding gown had hand made lace from Italy. Two years ago we took a trip to Victoria Canada and there was an Irish Lace shop, just the most beautiful lace all hand made, so I know what you mean about the art of it all.
Please drop my name into the hat, Luscious Lilacs lap quilt looks like a fun project to sew.
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth
