100 Posts = GiveAway!!!!!

EDIT: Comments are now closed - I'm putting all the names in the jar now and the give-away will commence shortly!


So tell me - what's better than finishing a quilt???

PICT1303    1

Finishing TWO quilts, of course!!!!!!!

PICT1316    1

That's right, I made two - one for you and one for me. Back in May, I won a fat quarter bundle of Snippets from Kelly at Charming Chatter. After I decided I wanted a simple patchwork quilt, I started cutting and found I had enough for two quilts. So now, I'm giving one away!

The quilt measures 60"x75".

PICT1307    1

It's backed with a sheet, the batting is a flannel sheet. Lightweight but cozy and washable.

PICT1320    1

This is a utility quilt, meant to be used - I have no mad quilting skills to show off, lol! It's a hug from me to you.

So what are the rules? Very simple, there are only two:

1. Leave a comment on this post.
2. DO NOT POST ABOUT IT.

That's right, don't put it on your blog. This give-away is for my regular readers and followers. Which of course greatly enhances your chance of winning!

So read the edit on my previous post to make sure I can reply to you, and leave me a comment here. This is open to everyone - whether you live down the street or down under, or across the pond. I will pick a winner on Black Friday, the day after our Thanksgiving holiday, November 27. Good luck!

Allieoops, the quilt is lovely. Some of the blocks look strangly familiar, like I had clothes made from them in grade school. Love your blog.

I would dearly love a piece of my far away friend to cuddle into when I'm tired and lonely...

Mary said...

Okay - woo hoo - count me in Allie. The quilts are adorable! Don't you just love it when you wind up with enough fabric left over to make an extra (especially when the fabric was won)? The flannel sheet backing will make it extra cozy too :)

Serena said...

YAY!!! I love it! Happy 100. I hope for 100 more.

SewLindAnn said...

It is really sweet and generous of you to share the "Snippets" hugs with your readers. They both look so comfy to snuggle in with. Congrats on your 100 posts! I'm still amazed at the idea that we can communicate with like-minded people in blog land and win wonderful fabric and more. Amazing!

Pam McL said...

OH! How wonderful! I can picture it now...in my car. It would be used in the winter for warmth and summer for picnics. What a fabulous give-away, Allie!
Congrats on 100 post, AllieCat!

Mr Puffy's Knitting Blog: said...

Allie, this is a beyond generous gift. To own something handmade by you would be such a treasure.

I can not be entered, though, because recently I've had a number of gifts sent my way and have had more than my share.

I do plan on having a giveaway too - and like you - just for my regular readers. Probably in the Spring near my anniversary.

Barbara said...

Well how nice of you to share not only part of the fabric you won, but to take the time to make it into a quilt, thanks so much, would love to win, but thanks anyway if I don't, grin. BarbM

Jan said...

That quilt would be so great at my place, Allie. I'd spend even more time than I do now curled up on the couch with a book, stroking the quilt on these hot days, or wrapped in it in winter. Lovely work, Allie, and a lovely thought to share the spare!

Anne at Film and Thread said...

I love how you set-up your giveaway! Aren't we all lucky to be regular readers? The quilts are so pretty and you did a wonderful job on them.

Ann J said...

What cheerful, 'cuddlesome' quilt Allie! So good of you to share and offer a hug too, - could do with one of those just now ! Congratulations on 100 posts!!.....Luv AJ

soggibottom said...

I just like the reference to borg's and Star Trek.... lost me there somewhere but get the idea.

Put me in the draw please. I would love to have a new (utility) quilt. I will put it on the ground under the shade of a big old tree to beat the heat from our long hot aussie summer. Already reaching mid 30's here and I'm on top of a mountain range.
Congrats on 100 posts.

I confused myself. Or are you playing a joke on me. LOL

Did I miss it? I've been so busy quilting my own thing. I want so badly to win a quilt, because I never have time to make myself one. I'm always quilting for other people. It would be nice to have something (especially from you) of my VERY OWN. And no, I'm not sucking up. I like you. I really, really like you. :)
