Give-Away #29 - Who Wants to WIN a Fat Quarter Bundle (your choice of colorway)?

 THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!

Wish Upon a Quilt is this week's sponsor and this is their 1st GiveAway on my blog!  Wish Upon a Quilt is located in North Raleigh, NC close to the Brier Creek Shopping Center.  It's an awesome place to shop where you can get pretty much anything you need:  Fat Quarter bundles, Jelly Rolls, Yardage, Patterns, Sewing Supplies, etc.  They have alot to choose from!  

Cathy McKillip is the owner.  There are a few ladies on the staff and all are so very nice and friendly.  The shoppe has a great vibe and everyone there, including customers, seem so happy to be there.  I went there only once (so far) and was quite impressed with the staff and the shoppe.  I did a blog post on my visit then Cathy contacted me asking to do a GiveAway.  My response was a big "YES!"

WHAT'S UP FOR GRABS:


An 8 Fat Quarter Pack of Solids.  Choose the blue/red colorway above or the purple/green colorway below behind the quilter.
Retail Value: about $20.00
(Actual Quilt above is for example purposes.  To buy the pattern, click the image above.)


 Quilt Artist: Christine Hager-Braun made the awesome quilt shown above & chose the fabrics.





Who doesn't love a chance to win some FREE Fabric?  9 Chances to Win!  Here's what you do:
#1 IS REQUIRED.  #2 - #9 ARE JUST EXTRA ENTRIES. "FOLLOWING" OR "LIKING" IS ONLY IF YOU WANT TO. 

Please leave a separate comment for each of the below.  It's easier to keep track of the entries that way.
This give-away will run for a work week from (Sat) 3-31 thru (Sat) 4-7 @ midnight EST.  I will use Random.org to choose the winner & will announce the winner on (Sun) 4-8!  I hope that the winner will take pictures & show off their prize on their blog!  SMILE :)!
  1. Let's do something different.  When you wash dishes by hand, do you keep your rings on or take them off?  If you are allergic to getting pruney/wrinkled fingers let us know that too!  ALSO, let me know if you want the blue & red colorway set or the purple & green colorway set.
  2. Become a KoolBeenz follower via Google Friend Connect or RSS Feed, comment that you now follow or already do

  47. I never wear rings. I used to but my fingers swell when it's humid making rings really uncomfortable. After losingy wedding ring because I took it off on a hit day and I think dropped it I stopped wearing rings! Thank goodness the hubs and I were both just out of uni when we married - my ring was a cheap street vendor buy!

    ReplyDelete

  58. I leave my wedding ring on and the others come off. The wedding ring is too tight some days to remove so I just wear it. I do not like pruney fingers and try to avoid hand washing anything at all costs. Oh....wait....that is not the reason, the real reason is I am lazy. LOL Thanks for a nice giveaway.

  85. Aaargh! it ate my comment! If I ever were to do dishes by hand, and that's very unlikely, I would leave my ring on. It's a toss up which bundle I'd prefer. Maybe 51% green, 49% red. I'd probably toss a coin. Thank you so much for the giveaway. I've shopped their online site many times and always been very happy with the service. I have their magnet on my fridge!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I always take my diamond ring set off when I get home anyway...so rings off by default! When I had a plain wedding band I never took it off.

  129. My wedding ring stays on ALL the time even while doing dishes. I haven't worn my engagement ring much over the last few years while we've had babies in the house; we still have one in diapers and it seemed I was always scratching one of our babies with the ring so I don't wear it much right now. I suppose I lean toward the blue colorway but would be happy with either! Thanks for chance! (marshudson at comcast dot net)

  133. The only dishes I wash by hand are the pots and pans, everything else goes in the dishwasher! When I am doing the pots and pans, I take my rings off and put them on a ring holder that I keep on my kitchen windowsill for just that purpose. If I didn't have the ring holder, I'd probably stick them in a pocket or someplace where I'd forget them! Both colorways are beautiful, but I think that I would opt for the red and blue. There is an active Quilts of Valor group at the LQS, and I'm sure that they would appreciate receiving the fat quarters.
