October Giveaways--Grand Finale!

You've all been so patient as I get my act together here for the final giveaway of the month! As a thank you, I've got FOUR prizes, so put your thinking caps on, and choose wisely!

You get one entry on this post, but if you've been playing along all month, I'll add all of your entries from all of the giveaways this month into the drawing of your choice, so you potentially have up to five chances at the prize of your choice.

The catch is, you can only choose one.

To enter, just leave me a comment telling me which prize you'd like to win most, and why. Simple enough, right?

So... Will you choose...

Three fat quarters of soft Heather Ross fabric to add to your stash? Or maybe...

A copy of Quilting Line + Color by Yoshiko Jinzenji?

Or a copy of Block Party Quilts by modern quilting gurus Alissa Haight Carlton and Kristen Lejnieks? (I've actually wound up with two extra copies of this one, so I'm picking TWO winners from this drawing!)

Or does your stash need a little holiday cheer? This little bundle of five solids and three prints would make great placemats, or pillow covers, or a tablerunner, or maybe some scrappy stockings... So many possibilities!

I'm leaving comments open until noon eastern on Friday, so you have a little time to consider. Happy choosing!

ETA: The giveaway is now closed--winners will be announced shortly!

Week 4 Giveaway Winner!

Wow! 62 entries? That's crazy-talk! It might be a drop in the bucket for bigger bloggers, but for little old me? That's huge! There is some serious Hunky-Dory love out there.

And your lists! Some of them make me feel like I've dug myself a hole I can never work out of, and some of you made me feel like we'll all be pulling some late nights together between now and the holidays.

Before I get to the winner, I'd like to take a second and say thanks for your patience this week. It's been one of "those" weeks, you know, the ones where you can't even win for losing? But I've finally gotten a decent night's sleep, and am hoping to get back in gear shortly. Which means (fingers crossed!) that the grand prize giveaway post should go up this weekend, and then I'll leave it up until next Friday so everyone can decide what they'd like their entries to be drawn for! (Is that grammar terrible or what? Perhaps a bit more sleep is in order...)

Ok, enough suspense. The Random Number Generator has done its little dance, and the winner is...

Making blankies for the local shelter from fleece scraps. The puppies and kitties are crying, so I'm working as fast as I can lol.

Anonymous, I am emailing you for your address now! Congratulations!

Remember to stop back this weekend to see what I have in store for the grand prizes--there are some serious goodies to be had!

Here we go! Our winners this week are...

For the Hoopla charm pack:

Kellye Quilts said...

I'd go with Hoopla and make a few tote bags. Yum!

For the Just Wing It charm pack:

Heather A said...

I would love to make a child's quilt with "Just Wing It". I've seen some others done with this fabric line and they all really stick with me the way the fabrics works together.

For the Origins charm pack (which was the clear favorite among y'all!):

Solstitches said...

I like Origins and it would have to be a bag. I love to make bags.

And finally, for the Snippets charm pack, our winner is:

Barb said...

Oh, great give-away. I'd love to win the snippets charm pack!

(Who says the first entry never wins?!)

Congrats to all of this week's winners--I'll be emailing you all shortly.

Monday will bring a new week's giveaway (our last!) AND the unveiling of all of the goodies I've got lined up for the grand prize giveaway. See you then!

Sneak peek

Just running through to give y'all a sneak peek at one of the prizes that will be part of the giant end-of-October giveaway blitz. If you've been putting your name in the proverbial hat for prizes all along, then those are all counting as entries toward the goodies I've got in store at the end of the month.

Three FQs of out-of-print Heather Ross lovelies. Sooo soft--I am a fool for these fabrics!

Oh, and if you're looking for this week's giveaway (you still have one day left!), click on over here.

I'll be back tomorrow to pick this week's winner!

(ps--Feel free to comment on this post, but those comments (or any comment on non-giveaway posts this month) will NOT count toward the final giveaway entries. Sorry!)

do. Good Stitches

I love working on scrappy projects, and in particular, digging through buckets and bags of scraps for just the right pieces. And that's one of the reasons I enjoy sewing for the do.Good Stitches beeevery month (I'm in the Peace Circle). For October, Paula asked us to make word blocks using the methods from Word Play Quilts by Tonya Ricucci. It was so much fun! Paula started us off with "Today, I will..." and then we each had to pick a word or phrase. I chose...

"Celebrate" as my word. I love the palette she gave us--vibrant yellows, reds and aquas with touches of linen--it all makes the white letters stand out beautifully. And now, off it goes to be put with the other great blocks from my fellow bees, and I get to look forward to what we're doing next month!

October Giveaways--Week 3!

We have FOUR prizes this week, folks! It's no secret I love charm packs. You might say I have a bit of a problem... But you'd be wrong! I can stop anytime I want--honest!

Sorry, what was I saying?

Oh, right! Charm packs!

I've dug through my stash, and come up with some great ones, including several of lines that have been out of print for a bit! There are four prizes, and there will be four winners, but you can only enter once. So leave me a single comment, telling me which one you'd like to win, and what you'd like to make with it! I'll pick the winners this coming Friday.

Good luck!

Week 2, October Giveaway!

Happy Columbus Day! And welcome to week 2 of my October giveaways! I'm doing a giveaway each week for the month, and then at the end of October, there will be a giant final giveaway for everyone who has entered during the month. More about that next week!

In the meantime...

This week's prize is two charm packs of Sandy Klop's (American Jane) awesome new line, Fairy Tale Friends. It has a remix of her wildly popular multi-color pez prints, which I believe is being called Magic Beans in this incarnation. You can see details of all of the prints over here.

To enter? Just leave a comment telling me what you're working on. Have you started working on holiday gifts yet? Finishing up works in progress? Doing a quilt-along? I want to know!

Good luck, and see you this Friday for the winner announcement!

EDIT: This Giveaway is now closed. Please come back on Monday for a chance at a new October giveaway prize!

Week 1 October Giveaway Winner!

Many thanks to everyone who entered this week--if possible, I have an even broader appreciation of the season now! (Even if I have also managed to catch a freaking cold in time for both my birthday and a three-day weekend. *sigh* Murphy and his laws.)

In any case! I compiled the list of everyone who was NOT a no-reply blogger and let the RNG do its dance. The winner of the Tula Pink fat quarters is:

quilary! Who said...

We're heading into Spring in Australia, but what I like about autumn is that it's getting cool enough to have hot chocolate and cinnamon toast in the afternoon when I come in from work!

Congrats! I've sent you an email to get your mailing details!

C'mon back on Monday, when I'll have a whole new prize up for grabs. And it is so good, even if I do say so myself! See you then!

Baby quilt blocks in progress...

Slowly working my way through my "to-do" stack as I have time this week, including sweet little pink and gray star blocks for a baby quilt. I even went so far as to cut into some of my Flea Market Fancy--they're reprinting some of the line, which will be available early next year (so I hear), so why be stingy, right?

I love stars. What are you loving this week?

Week 1, October Giveaway!

If you were a reader around these parts this time last year, you'll remember last October. For those who weren't, or those who have forgotten, here's how October goes.

See, October is my favorite month. It's when New England really puts on a glorious show of color, the nights get crisp and quilt-worthy, the days are full of crystal-blue skies and the smell of leaves. It's also my birthday month! So I like to spread the joy, and the fabric, with some giveaways!

Every full week in October, I'll start a giveaway post on Monday, and announce a winner on the Friday at the end of the week. Everyone who enters throughout the month will also be entered for a big blow-out fifth prize, which will be announced later this month.

Up this week?

Five Tula Pink fat quarters, the two on the left being from Plume, and the three on the right being from the long out of print collection, Flutterby.

Want a shot? Leave me a comment telling me your favorite thing about fall. Is it baking? The return of the pumpkin latte? The end of the summer humidity? Tell me!

And that's it. One comment per person. If you'd like to Facebook, Tweet or blog about it, that's awesome, but I'm not asking anyone to jump through hoops--I've learned my lesson, because hoops bug my bum leg. :) The only hoop I'll ask you to jump through is to make sure that you leave me a way to contact you--if your blogger profile doesn't have an email available for me to use, please leave your email address in the comment. Nothing makes me sadder than being unable to contact a winner!

Good luck!
