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.

UP FOR GRABS:
* 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

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

THE FINE PRINT:
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.

SewCal Gal said...

What a beautiful quilt. And a wonderful giveaway. I can't believe you cut those diamonds to give it away. That will certainly help make this quilt go together quickly. I haven't yet sewn diamonds, but would love to do it, especially with your beautify fabrics.

maukey said...

I enjoyed the Blog presentation at the guild meeting Monday. This is the first time I've ever posted a comment on a blog but I want to be entered in the giveaway so I had to overcome whatever it is that holds me back. I hope this is not as addictive as quilting!

Heather said...

Nifty! You can enter me, too!

Susan said...

Such beautiful fall colors, my favorite time of the year. The diamond quilt is wonderful, would love a chance to win.

Bonnie said...

What a wonderful generous giveaway. I would love to make a diamond quilt and not have to cut all of the diamonds (or should say my husband wouldn't have to cut them). Thanks for the chance to win.

Hey Lisa,

Didn't see my comment that I sent through on Monday night so thought I would try again today. It looked like it went through this time so hopefully I am entered in the drawing. I loved the Aunt Donna quilt that was hanging in front of my sewing machine at the retreat. Perhaps the reason I didn't get much done was the fact that I sat drooling over your projects going together on the wall. So I should get the Aunt Donna scraps so I can make my own. Loved the program on Monday. All three of you did a great job. It was interesting to hear about what each of you gets out of your blogs. Using it as an online journal for your own work is a great idea. The online demos were a great addition. Thanks for a great program. - PattyB - you know where to find me.
