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.

  24. The red and blue colorway is my favorite! So pretty and cheery.

    As for doing the dishes, I leave my rings on. The only time I take them off during kitchen chores is when I'm making meatloaf or meatballs. Anytime I have to squish meat by hand, the rings come off.

  89. I have a dishwasher, but I always wash dishes by hand. I find it to be cathartic, particularly in the mornings when I look out of the window over my kitchen sink at our valley and see the world waking up as the morning mists burn off. I keep my ring on and do not wear gloves. My hands will never be hand models, as they tend to be rough, but they are CLEAN! I like the green and purple colorway. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I leave my rings on. I love both colorways, but I would choose the red and blue! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  132. After coming in from the garden and feeding the horse and working on stuff, I LOVE to do dishes by hand and leave the "jewels" on to be magically cleaned. Just like washing your hair to get your fingernails cleaned after a hard day pulling weeds and planting petunias. Then I am all ready to check my email for my Wish Upon a Quilt e-mail and FB page before dreaming of starting my green-purple colorway quilt.
