Win this quilt!



So, I'm going to give this quilt away.





Let me tell you all about the quilt and then I'll give you the instructions on how to enter. Stay with me . . .

This quilt measures 65" x 87". The front is made with the incredibly fabulous fabric from designer Sandi Henderson for Michael Miller fabrics. The fabric comes from Sandi's first fabric collection called Ginger Blossom which is bright, fresh but a little bit vintage-y feeling. I absolutely adore the entire line and am looking forward to getting my hands on some fabric from her second collection called Farmer's Market.






The backing is a cool vintage sheet that I found in one of my many thrift store trips. It is an overall floral pattern with the same bright colors as the pieced front. You can see a bit of it peaking out in this photo.






The quilt is 100% cotton and is machine washable and dryable. In fact, I have already washed and dried it so as to give it the wrinkly, crinkly look that I love about quilts.









Oh, there you can see more of the back showing. It really makes a lovely and interesting combination. Man, I wish I hadn't already said that I was giving this quilt away. I love this quilt. I really, really love this quilt. I loved the fabric long before it was ever released in stores for purchase and then loved seeing the stack of fabric sitting on my sewing table. Then, as I was cutting the pieces for the quilt I loved it even though I hate to cut. Then, as I was sewing I loved it so much I wanted it to give me it's Letterman jacket and invite me to the homecoming dance. But, the real kicker is when I got it back from the long arm quilter (who by the way is the best! I found him on vacation once and have used him ever since. His name is Russ and he and his wife own The Back Porch Quilters and do amazing work! And, they only charge $.01 a square inch!! His quilting has even been featured in an Asian Fabric Magazine). When I got this quilt back from The Back Porch Quilters I nearly wanted to die. My palms got sweaty and I got a little . . . oh, ok ALOT . . . light headed and had to sit down and drink a glass of water. But I soldier on.





On to the contest details . . .

Enter by leaving a comment to this post anytime before Midnight, Tuesday, July 22, 2008 US Date and Time.

Only enter once cause that is all that counts.

However, there are THREE ways to earn extra entries. First, you can post about my giveaway in your blog and be sure to provide a link for people to find me here. Doing that earns you 5 extra entries in addition to your comment which would put your name in the hat a total of 6 times.

Second, if you post this graphic in your sidebar of your blog then you will earn an extra 5 entries into the random draw. (If you want to put this graphic in your sidebar go here and copy and paste that code right into your blog. That will give you the graphic and it will be clickable, meaning folks can click right on it and it will direct them here. Thanks dudes.)

Whew. Now for the third and final way to earn extra entries. This is the biggie.

Third, you can win FIFTY, yep, the big 5 - 0, extra entries if you make a short video about why you should win the quilt and the video makes at least one person in my family giggle. You must upload your video to YouTube and you must title it Old Red Barn Co. Giveaway. Then, obviously you have to email me the link to find and watch your video. Any takers?

A few final answers to you questions:

International entrants totally and completely welcome. Welcome ya'll.

Only one comment per person will be counted. But, that doesn't mean that you can't ask everyone in your living family tree to enter for you. Welcome to ya'll too. But if your Uncle Bubba wins the quilt and won't hand it over to you there is nothing I can do to help ya out. That is unless I catch wind that Uncle Bubba plans to put the quilt in the cow barn and then I'll be on the next train out.

And finally, there will be a 2nd and 3rd place prize. $30 gift certificate to my Old Red Barn Co. Store. With Christmas not too far off these could come in handy. Especially since I'm getting ready to introduce Peppermint Creme and to bring back a beloved favorite, Chestnuts & Brown Sugar.

Good luck.

-dana

P.S. Winners will be selected by random draw and will be announced next Wednesday, July 23, 2008. Peace out.

P.S. Thanks to those who alerted me to the size of the graphic. You'll see I have changed it to a vertical graphic so you should be able to use it now. Sorry for the confusion.

Crossing my fingers and going to see if I can maybe get a video together for you later today!!

Don't have a blog, so no mention, no sidebar but I would really LOVE this quilt and give it a good home.

The Powell Family said...

I made my video! Not that great, but I am limited today on my time. However, please ignore Miss Ella's ability to disuade you from picking me!! I had to use this video because I just thought she was too cute! Oh, just go back to my page to view. I did you You Tube, but I haven't gotten the link from them yet. My page is powellpowwow.blogspot.com.

Oooohhhhh, I love the quilt. All attempts to win this quilt will be made on my behalf; although, I fear even trying, lest I not win and feel sad that this one got away...Okay, I must buck up and get to work posting, linking and filming my day away to snag this preciousness! :) Love the blog as usual!

The Powell Family said...

Just kidding, I just found the link from You Tube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADarWgl0_jg

Oh, and no I don't know how to shrink the link on the sidebar. :( Wish I did!

A video? Hmm...I'll get back with ya on that one.

Lexi & Josh said...

I really love your quilt! I an feeling lucky so hopefully I will win it! I also really love your blog! Thank you!!!!

Helen said...

Found this via another blog and its lovely-lovely-lovely, what a great give-away. Nevertheless: leave me out, I am from overseas and the shipping would be hell...

But I wanted to comment and say that while I was longingly sighing at the quilt I listened to your playlist and fell in love with "Lucky" by Jason Mraz.

So thanks: actually you gave away a beautiful song away to me (just ordered the CD) :-)

Amy said...

Dana! your right it is absolutely gorgeous! I still can't believe you are giving it away - if you want you can say it's random and send it to me that way you have some idea of who it's going to and not an absolute stranger - he he!
I put your button at the top of my sidebar for the week so I get an extra, but I don't think I can get the video. . . bummer :)

Be still my heart!!! This would be amazing to cuddly on the couch with... and use as a "prop" in many many of my client's photographs that I take!!! I will try and get this in my sidebar... my blog is a "bit" more complicated than most peoples. :)

Momo said...

Wonderful quilt! Or in german:
Das ist ein wunderschöner Quilt :-)

Lieben Gruß

Laura said...

I'm in love with this quilt. You can't do better than cotton!

Judy said...

May I be the lone person here to say...WHY are you giving it away if you love it that much? You made it keep it! Just change your mind and make another for the give away in a few months?

Here's what I'll do...enter me in the running and I'll do the link and the sidebar thing and if I win...I'll let you keep it. I wouldn't take it because you love it so much!

lois45 said...

Just finished my first quilting class. Of course, I didn't do anything like this one. Pretty awesome! I think the nice thing about quilts is that you can always make another one from whatever inspiration hits you.

Quilt Nut said...

love it love it love it! and i can't believe you are giving it away when YOU love it so much!

i've posted your giveaway on my blog and added your button to my sidebar

thanx muchly!

imquilternity said...

Please count me in for your VERY generous drawing for the VERY gorgeous quilt. I don't think I could part with it if I were you....I would have to do some fast thinking and make some kind of switcheroo! Ok, jus' kidding!

Jody said...

The quilt is wonderful. I'm off to look at those fabric lines!

AFine said...

I have talked about your giveaway in my first blog and I've also pasted that graphic! whew boy I'm just rackin up those entries, huh? lol

PamperingBeki said...

I NEED that quilt! Really. It should come to live with me. Really. I love it. Really.

I absolutely LOVE Sandi's fabrics (and she's a total sweetheart too!) but I don't sew. :( Soooo sad. So you see, I need this quilt. Really.

Will blog about it and add it to my sidebar. :)

(And you're a braver woman than I to figure in all these extra credit entries... That would drive me batty!)

Natalie said...

Oh, I just have to win this. Since the first time you posted that you were going to be giving a quilt away made with Sandi Henderson fabric I just felt that I had to win. I think I actually told you that it would make my year and I wasn't just saying that. This year has been long and hard and we are moving across the U.S. and changing our whole life for my husband to go back to school. I am so stressed and something this beautiful that I could snuggle into on the couch would honestly make my year. So, I will be posting about you in my blog and I will be putting you in my side bar. I really want to post a video but I am not sure I will be able to with a move so close and my new video camera still not delivered to us. If I can find a way to do a video I will but I just can't see a way. Anyway, I just want you to know that you are amazing for even being willing to give this quilt up...and I am really willing myself and praying that I will win.

knitnoid said...

I love the quilt. It's not what I'd pick when going to the LQS, but it works, especailly the vintage sheet -- who would have thought. Your photography is beautiful. I'm tempted to figure out how to blog for extra entries, but I'm in the middle of a sewing room redesign and my help (15 yo niece) is leaving day after tomorrow.

I AM said...

How completely cook is this!?!?!

I've posted on my blog, including your graphic/badge.

You rock!

debbie said...

Your quilt is amazing! I would love to win it! :o) I put the info on my blog and on the sidebar. I will have to have my assistant (dd) help me with the sizing. :o) Will let you know if i come up with a video! lol

imquilternity said...

I couldn't find a way to contact/email you (maybe I'm blind) to let you know that I tried to post your photo link in my sidebar and it was too big. So, I just used it in my blog entry about the quilt and your blog. Just wanted to let you know in case others have this problem.

Rita said...

Oh My!
I have never seen a more beautiful quilt. I would feel honored to display its beauty in my home. What an inspiration for each new day. Can you tell I am drooling I love it oh so much. Please count me in the give away.

Mary said...

Oh what a BEAUTIFUL quilt!! No wonder you want to keep it!! Would love to have the extra chances to win, but I don't have a blog, and I don't know how to do videos, so.... I'm counting on my ONE little entry to be the winning one! You do beautiful work, and I'd be proud to own this quilt!

Loralynn said...

What a gorgeous quilt! I would so love to win this beauty! I will definately be putting you on my blog and the side bar button too. I don't know if I can swing the video though, I just don't know if I can do the "funny" part. Even though my family thinks I'm "funny in the head," I don't know if I could make you laugh. I'll have to think on that one...

Karen said...

That quilt would look fabulous in my new house.
I don't have a craft blog, so this entry will be my only :D

Misty said...

Oh my goodness... It's truly lovely and I was all geared up to do several of your options (i am going to post a blog about it, and put it in my side bar) but my chances of winning are non-existent when competing with 50...

Sarah and Jack said...

You know I am in, like always, even though I am pretty sure I have a better chance of winning the lotto. LOL

erin said...

I love it. Good luck to me.

Sarah Pead said...

Here's my "comment entry." You better believe I'll be putting a link on my Xanga blog, my Facebook, and my blogspot.

Oh...and...
I am TOTALLY making a goofy video. I have so many ideas swimming around in my head for this one!! :)

The quilt is beautiful!!!!

D'Rae said...

Count me in please! I also linked to it in my blog.

rachel said...

I can see why you care so dearly for your amazing quilt,it is so lovely. I would do all that stuff you asked to earn the extra entries but I am very pregnant and I don't own a video camera.All I can do is hope this one entry slips past all the rest and takes the prize! Beautiful quilt!

Kentanner11 said...

Well I am in love with that quilt too!

Cat said...

this quilt is beautiful and i CLEARLY understand why you love it so! i'm going to work on a UTube video [although i've never done one] because i'd just love to win this quilt to auction it for charity [for my Breast Cancer 3-day walk - you can read about it by linking from my blog], although i'll be sorely tempted to outbid everyone and keep it for myself!

barbarabaker said...

I've always been one to crochet afghans, but have never been able to quilt as well as this. I have always wanted a quilt of my own and this would be such a grand win...please count me in!!!

jlk said...

WOW!! Count me in. It is a lovely quilt. I cannot believe you are giving it away. I will try to do a video this week. I really want to win!

Shel said...

I am only new from Australia too; but I have often spent most of my early mornings here!!

If I were clever enough, I'd have done a video. Alas, a comment must suffice.

Please keep up the wonderful blog!!!

Balkan Style Bloggers said...

This is a good reminder about getting in gear and finishing up the quilt in my sewing cupboard! It's ridiculous how long it is taking me to finish it. I am so happy that I stumbled on to your blog a few weeks ago with your homemade cleaning remedies! I plan to post about your contest on my blog, but in the meantime I have added your banner on the bottom of my blog! Thank you for the continual inspiration!

I love the nostalgic feel of this quilt. It reminds me of fabric patterns from my childhood! I will most certainly add this as a sidebar to my blog!

My post is up on my blog.

I put the button on my sidebar, but it came out kind of wonky. I hope it still counts 'cause I really, really love this quilt. :P

Beautiful quilt and I know a lot of hard work went into it.

"wrinkly, crinkly look that I love about quilts"......me too....I just bought a new vintagish quilt at TJ Maxx that I really couldn't afford but it reminded me of my grandmother so so much, plus it's 100% cotton and I am going to use it on the couch every day during the hot months in the evening when the air gets a little chill. I am not going to "save" it for one day; I plan on using it!

Greetings from the mountains of North Carolina! Really love your blog and The Quilt.. I am temporaily without a pc or blog due to extensive renovation on our mountain cottage, but I read your blog from my daughters house here in TN. We will soon be moving in and the quilt would be perfect for our little cottage. Praying that I'm the winner, either way I will continue to check in on your super blog. Denise from North Carolina

I can't imagine making something like this and then giving it away to someone you don't even know! I need to take a lesson from you in generosity! You are very talented. I love the colors and the crinkly look after you washed it. Whoever wins this will feel pretty special.

CC said...

Beautiful quilt. I added a post about it and added the graphic to my blog. but the graphic is too big, but it still links to your blog. You just can't see it all. And I'm a dummy at these types of things, so I don't know how to resize it.

And I hope it's ok that I took a photo of the quilt to post over there.
Here's my blog address.

Creations by Rachel said...

This quilt is SO awesome! I know the feeling of not wanting to give away a quilt - I made one (okay, so I still have the binding left...) for my sister's grad present and I really wanna keep it! It was my first real quilt, too, and I got it quilted (first time there, also!), and, and, and... So anyways, I completely sympathize, but I would really love to win :D. Thanks for the opportunity!

stacysews said...

Love your quilt! I was hoping to make one with the same fabric line, but I can't seem to justify it when I already have so many unfinished projects as it is. I can't believe you're actually going to give it away!
