A hitch in our get-along...

I don't know what is happening with the Comment section of my posts. Lots of you have been able to get through, but I know of at least two people who have made multiple attempts to enter the Giveaway by posting a comment and have been unable to complete that process.

Don't sink into despair if you don't see your comment right away. I have the comment moderation on, so it may take a little while for me to put yours through. If it does not appear by the end of the day, you can use Option B to enter.

Option A: Comment through the link at the bottom of the Giveaway post.

Option B: Send me an email using the link to the right. You MUST put GIVEAWAY in the subject line to be entered though, otherwise you won't be entered.

Whichever you choose, please enter only once. So sorry for the trouble.

It's GIVEAWAY Time!!!!

Our program at guild Monday is "Adventures in Blogging: Enhance your quilting and Make new friends." I have found much encouragement and inspiration from quilters who blog and I've even won a giveaway from Trends and Traditions. I've had lovely comments from visitors and have come to feel as if I know some of you out there just a little through your own blogs.

When I first started this blog, I showed a project I had cut from Aunt Donna scraps using a diamond template. Well, I'm still cutting diamonds from Aunt Donna scraps and can't seem to get enough of them.

Hooray for the Red, White, and Blueberries and Maisy's quilt are cut from the same template. I still have the pie diamonds to sew together and a UFO of florals.

I have made two quilt tops from fall scraps to use on the twin beds in my guest room.

They are not identical as the vast array of prints in Aunt Donna's scraps provided an almost infinite variety from which to choose.

For this giveaway, I decided to cut another set of fall diamonds for some lucky quilter out there in blogger land.

* set of pre-cut diamonds in 25 different prints - enough to make a 61.5" x 86" quilt (side pieces not included so you can choose your own fabric)
* plastic templates
* assembly tips

Leave a comment on this post before midnight Friday, March 16. A winner will be selected randomly on Saturday, March 17.

Once a winner is posted, if I am not able to make contact with the winner within 48 hours, then another winner will be chosen.

But I'm not the only one offering giveaways this week. Judy at greenQuilts and Susan at Blackberry Creek Home Arts are also on the program with me and they are giving away things, too. Check out their blogs to get in on the action.

Coming soon to a blog near you...

Dear Readers -

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and returning from time to time. Your visits have totaled well over 55,000 since I started this blog in September 2008.

Two guild friends and I will be talking about quilting and blogging at our guild meeting this coming Monday. As incentive to fellow guild members to check out our blogs, I will be offering a big GIVEAWAY. In fact we will all be offering GIVEAWAYS.

But you will have to check back on Sunday for details on how you, too, can get in on the opportunity to win a fantastic GIVEAWAY.

Did I mention it will be a GIVEAWAY?

See you Sunday!
