******** TIME'S UP! I'LL ANNOUNCE THE LUCKY WINNERS TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2008!********
I'd like to give these three different quilts to three different winners.
Um . . . Er. . . Well, let me rephrase that . . .
I'm going to give these three different quilts to three different winners.
I've talked about them all before but let me do a little run down. The first up is made from the new line of fabric called Sugar Snap from Melissa Averinos for Free Spirit. You'll remember that she (as in the fabric designer herself Melissa!) generously gave me the fabric specifically for this give away. She sent it when I was the busiest with my soap company and stuff so in order to make all this work a lovely friend of mine actually made the quilt. Her name is Anne and she does impeccable work. And, since after every quilt giveaway I get a slew of requests to replicate the giveaway quilt, Anne is willing and able to do that for anyone who wants one. How stinkin' cool is that? If your interested email me and I'll get you in contact with Super Quilter Extraordinaire Anne!
Did I mention the Sugar Snap quilt measures 53 x 63 and is 100% cotton? I've washed and dried it to give it that crinkly, wrinkly look that I love. It's so incredibly my style and whoever wins it is one lucky duck for sure.
I've spoken some about the middle quilt as well. It is made with fabric from Moda by their uber-talented designer Tula Pink. Remember she signed a bit of her Nest fabric and sent it to my long arm quilter Russ? That hand signed bit of fabric is IN this quilt!
Susan Guzman, of SuzGuz Designs, specially designed this pattern for this giveaway. It is called Candy Bar Road and it brilliantly shows off fabulous fabric. Susan made this quilt and is throwing in two Candy Bar Road quilt patterns for a fourth and fifth prize.
Ladies and gentlemen, a big round of applause for Susan Guzman!
And just so you know, the Nest quilt measures 56 x 64 and it too has already been washed and dried for that lovely aged affect. Rest assured, however, that in case it arrives at your house smelling like the fried chicken we had for dinner last Sunday you are perfectly safe to throw it in the washing machine and drier.
Last, but certainly not least is this 45 inch square quilt. It too is 100% cotton and washed and ready for use.
It was designed and made by the talented Kari Ramsay from Fresh Cut Quilt Pattern Company. The fabric selection is killer and Wendy Nabhan quilted it beautifully. Boo and Licious have hosted several tea parties on this lovely little quilt and will hate to see it go.
But go it must! Now back to scrubbing the floors and cleaning the chimney girls! No time for tears! I've got a contest to start!
How to enter? Leave a comment to this post.
Wanna earn extra entries? There are THREE different ways to increase you chances.
First, blog about my give away. Snag any of the photos here to put in your blog post. Blog it. Twitter it. Facebook it. Do any of that and it gives you FIVE extra entries.
Second, put the above button in the sidebar of your blog. Simply copy and paste the text in the box below and put it in your sidebar. Dude! That earns you FIVE more entries. Now you're up to TEN.
Third, make a video and upload the video to YouTube with the title being the link to my blog (so title it, "http://oldredbarnco.blogspot.com"). Make it about why you wanna win a quilt. Make it funny. Making and uploading a video earns you FIFTY extra chances!
I'll close the contest at 7:00pm US EST on Monday, November 17, 2008. International entries welcome. ALL winners will be selected by random draw. The video entries earn an extra 50 chances but it still remains random. If I had to choose by merit then I'd never, ever in a billion years be able to choose a winner. I'd be up for the rest of my life making quilts for each and every one of you. And who would feed and clothe my children? And more importantly, who would supervise them on the whole floor scrubbin' thing?
Check this!! My friend Tipper's exceptionally talented family made this video. Listen closely cause they are singing about DANA'S QUILTING PARTY!!!
I am loving all of the video entries so far and plan to feature them all here eventually. If you want yours to be linked to you and your blog, etc. then let me know in an email. email@example.com
