Quilt giveaway

Time is up!  Comments now closed.  Winner to be announced shortly!


I'm giving away this quilt.  Because it is Christmas and I haven't given one away in awhile.




We waited a few days to try to take photographs outside but between snow, ice and now rain we just haven't been able to.  So instead you get these less than perfect indoor shots.




The quilting is done by The Back Porch Quilters who are offering special shipping just for you in January.  For any quilt full sized or larger, pay only $5 shipping.  For the month of January only.  Full sized quilt or up.  $5 shipping per quilt.  Yippee!


So, icky weather indoor photography means it's slumped over a chair and has that weird hump in the middle.  I think you get the idea of what the back looks like though.  And that swirly quilting?  ::swoon::



I haven't bound it yet but rest assured that it will be bound and washed before I ship it to it's new owner.

I pinkie promise.

How to win?

Leave a comment to this post by Wednesday, December 22, 2010 by 6pm US EST.  One comment per person.  International entries welcome.  Winner will be selected by random draw and announced Wednesday evening.   Oh, and one more thing.  All my Facebook peeps and Twitter tweeps automatically get five extra entries.  (Cause the peeps and tweeps are there to answer my deep philosophical questions that plague me late in the night.  When I'm scared and all alone.  For helping me with important things like fabric choices and recipe selections, I think those folks deserve extra chances.  It makes this big scary world seem like a safer place.  And it is the right thing to do by golly.)

Good luck.
