Big Huge Giveaway

I've been doing some serious spring cleaning and decided- I just have way too many quilts. I need more space so that I can make more quilts!

So........... I am doing a big huge giveaway. All you have to do is enter by leaving a comment with your email and you could win one of my three below creations. Just a little disclaimer- I am not a tidy, perfect quilter. My bindings are pretty rough, some of my quilting puckers, etc. Just wanted to throw that out there. Enjoy and good luck!

these are the three items I am giving away:

Heather Ross Mendocino Quilt

035

or this scarf:

Hot Pink Scarf

I have to give it to you- i dont know if i would be able to give away a quilt. Then again I dont seem to make things for myself, so I dont have the issue of having too many things around....but i hope to change that soon!

i know a few others mentioned it, and I think it is a great idea! If I win, and boy do i hope I do, I will pay the postage.

THANK YOU!!!!!!

now off to make my mom her mothers day gift...we are celebrating tomorrow. oops!

How amazing that you're giving away your beautiful creations. I realize you need the room, but it's still awfully generous of you. I know how much work goes into those things.

PS - HI!!!! It's been a while! :-)

msalleycat said...

Perfect is boring. I much prefer little mistakes that let you know a real person made something. And that purple/gold Mendocino mermaid quilt is probably my favorite on your blog!

craftyconfusion said...

wow! what a generous give-away. I find the imperfections in quilts is what makes them so endearing...

Your color combos are so great. I especially like the second quilt.
