I don’t have anything interesting on my design wall for Judy’s Monday, since I’ve been working on Mom’s quilt almost exclusively. However, so many of you do giveaways, and it seems like a fun way to brighten someone’s day. I have a layer cake I’m not going to use, and some assorted other odds and ends; what better way to pass it along than a giveaway here? It’s not a huge, elaborate, OMG I WON giveaway, but hey – I’m broke.
There are two packages:
Package One: A complete Moda Hello Betty Retro layer cake.
Bear in mind, this is the retro colorway – not the … um… non-retro one. This one has greys, reds, blacks, oranges and turquoises, not pinks, blues, greens and so forth.
Package Two: Several fat quarters and layer cake sheets of American Jane Snippets, several Kansas Troubles Kansas Winter layer cake sheets, plus assorted other FQ’s. The Snippets bits would be great for doll quilts or kids’… stuff. Whatever stuff that might be. More fabric might get added to this package, but nothing in the photo will be removed.
Here’s how to win one of them: For Package One, provide me with the best, easiest-to-follow description of how to tie a Quilter’s Knot. Seriously. The one where you wrap it around the needle, pull it down and it magically ties itself at the end of the thread. Whoever helps me to successfully master this thing wins the layer cake. If I still can’t get it, the best effort wins. You can leave a comment, use photos if you like, make a video, or leave me a voice mail on my cell using the Google widget at the top right (Google Voice calls the number you enter, free of charge, and then leaves me a voice mail.)
For Package Two, post a comment to be one of the names I draw out of a bowl – no special tutorials required.
I don’t tend to get an enormous volume of traffic, so your odds here are pretty good. I’m not even going to ask you to link back as a cheap way of driving traffic to the site – I really just want to give this stuff away.
Even if you don’t want any of it, for pity’s sake – help me learn how to tie a damn knot. 🙂
The giveaway closes on Thanksgiving – Thursday, November 26, 2009 – at 9pm Eastern, and because I don’t want to fill out customs paperwork and whatnot, is only open to US recipients. Sorry about that, if you’re out of the country.
