First of all, THANKS everyone for all the love on the patterns! You know how it goes, you work your guts out on something and you get the occasional "looks good" from the husband, the "great job" from your mom, but you don't really know until you put it out there. Which is always terrifying. Luckily, when I put it out there, I've got all of you girls to help me out and calm my nerves. How lucky am I?? Lucky, I tell you.
So I was thinking, amidst all the luckiness, its time for a giveaway. I've been thinking maybe a different kind of giveaway- here's how it is going to go.
2. Leave a comment with your name, where you are from, your favorite pattern, and to shake it up a little bit, either the strangest compliment you've ever received, or something that makes you unique. I'll be reading your entries while taking breaks from pattern writing, so dazzle me. ;-)
3. I'll choose the winner via Random Number Generator, and make the quilt of your choice out of the fabric of my choice. I'll give you one guess on what that might be. ;-) If you are thinking Cotton Blossoms, you are probably right. Probably. Maybe I'll give you a few to choose from. Who knows, I'm kinda crazy like that. I'll probably throw in a few consolation prizes as well. Who knows what those will be!
*Mention this giveaway on your blog and get an extra 3 entries.
**Go to the pattern page on thimbleblossoms.com and post a picture of your finished Thimble Blossoms project and you get an extra 5 entries per project. Yes, PER project. Those of you who already have projects posted over there get those points automatically. Especially if you give me a little reminder. Way to go, you!
*If you are a quilter, and would rather have the kit for your quilt, you can definitely opt for that after you win. If you aren't a quilter, you are good to go, it will be all done and ready to snuggle in when it makes it to you. If you are one of my designer friends/fabric friends/quilt shop owners/mom and feel like you shouldn't enter because you aren't sure if you should, go right ahead!! It's good for my self esteem. ;-)
As always, here is my example:
My name is Camille and I'll always be from Idaho. My favorite pattern is probablySitting Pretty, I snuggle up in it every night while I sit at the computer and read blogs and attempt to get work done. The strangest compliment I've ever received? Had to be this one. But since I already blogged about that, something unique about me... I listen to talk radio online whenever I'm on the computer. I'm an old lady trapped in... apparently an old lady's body! I've posted about this giveaway on my blog (well, that's a given!) and lets face it, I posted a lot of stuff over at thimbleblossoms.com.
Wow, that was a long entry. Sorry. But you get the idea, right?
Since some of you may be scrambling to get some projects done, I'm going to have the giveaway open until November 23, and I'll post the winner on Monday morning, November 24th.
edit: After you submit your witty, clever entry, head on over here to try your luck at a lovely quilt (or three) from at Old Red Barn Co. But don't claim the Tula Pink one. That one's mine. Me and Tula, we're tight. ;-)
edit2: Want to double your entries? See this new post!
How does that all sound? Good? Good.
Oh, and good luck!
