Post # 99: time for a Give-Away!

Yes my 99th post. Most entries have been quilt related, documenting my journey on “That Quilt”. So, time for a give-away like a number of blogs I follow.

THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED NOW.
The prize package is 7 pieces of reproduction turkey red fabric, each about 8 inches by 10 inches in size. Some of these prints are very hard to find now. One is at least 10 years old (but still in great shape!) In addition, the winner will receive a piece of a bright yellow print, and two pieces of reproduction poison green fabric. The print on the right is from a long-ago reproduction line. The one on the left is from the Callie Lu line, which had strips of two patterns on one piece of fabric. Also hard to find now. The size of these pieces is good for a Jane quilt or Nearly Insane quilt. I wish I had more alluring photos of the fabric, but there it is.


Here is how to enter.


My 14 followers as of Thursday Aug.28 are automatically entered.
Leave a comment on this post and please include a way to contact you if your blogger profile does not include your email address or blog name. A mention of this contest on your blog would be great but not necessary. Followers: Yes you can enter twice!


Enter by next Friday September 4, 2009 at 6 PM Eastern USA time. At that time I will use a random number generator or random list generator (See Random.org) to pick the winner. Post #100 will announce the winner. Once I have a shipping address the fabric is off to its new happy home.


Good luck!

Some very unique fabrics there! I don't have much access to civil war repros (other than online), so these are nice to look at. I like how you did cyclone for the Dear Jane quilt. I joined a few swaps for blocks for that quilt; one was a fall theme, the other was a row robin which was very fun! Some of those hard blocks it's really nice to see how to do them in picture form...seems so easy after that!
