i heart giveaways.

I'm having a giveaway because I'm very excited!!! I sold my first quilt. My oh cherry oh one!! So I thought that I needed to have a giveaway for that special event!:) This is a frenchy bag with Amy Butler's Daisy Chain line. In the blues. It's a dreary day here and so my lighting is less than perfect.
I also said that I wanted to have a giveaway when I got to 100 followers. I'm not there yet but I'm hoping that with this giveaway I might get there. So this will be on the back burner so to speak. If I get to 100 with this giveaway I will pick two winners.
This is going to be a little different rule wise as my others. I have never tried this before but if you would like more opportunities to win you will have them. How to get into the giveaway
1. leave me a comment that you would like to be entered
2. if you want more opportunities to win you could blog about this giveaway and then let me know
3. if you don't follow me and decide to, let me know.
4. if someone tells me that they came to my blog from your post that will give you an extra entry.
I'm going to try this and see how it goes. I will leave this open until Friday night. I will probably post the winner Friday night/Saturday morning. If it's not posted you still have time to enter. As always thanks so much for stopping by. I love hearing from you!!!

Right now I just "star" all of your posts so that I can go back and find inspiration when I do start quilting again, but I better start quilting soon, because after only a few weeks you have given me lots of inspiration.
    I would love to be entered into the giveaway. I can always use a cute new bag.

  68. Hi Heather! I'd love to be counted-in on your current give-away! I have been admiring your artwork for quite some time and found your blog on your facebook...I love your new wee play outside picnic quilt and tried to figure out the dimentions, and then thought, "why don't I just ask Heather for the pattern/measurements?" So, if it is something you woud be willing to share, will you let me know where to find the pattern or did you invent it yourself? See you later. (I chose 'anonymous' cuz I don't know what the other options are...) Therese Schlotte
