Almost 100 Followers Giveaway

Just to keep my perspective about all this, when I announced I had 95 followers and was almost to 100, I lost one. 

I graduated with my first degree in Clothing, Textiles and Clothing Construction and my second and third degrees in writing.  So I’m very well versed in all the cliche-ridden angst about trying to write and trying to keep a perspective on why I write, and I think a lot of all that can apply over here, to writing about quilts.

Some bloggers write to build a business.  Since I have nothing to sell, that won’t work very well for me.  Some bloggers write to build a constituency, a community.  I’m sort of in that group and have many rewarding pen-pal/blog-pal/IG-pal friendships because of that.  Some blog to share, not only their work but to contribute to the greater quilt world that’s out there.  I’m definitely in that group.  Others blog to celebrate. But it’s not Neener-Neener sort of celebrating, but more like “Can you believe I actually finished this?” style.  Or at least that’s what I believe.

Whatever the reason, I just want to celebrate my community with a giveaway of black and white fabrics.  I have two identical sets of six fat quarters.  The prints are along quilty-themed lines, purchased at my local quilt shop.  Anyone, including my followers and readers, can can win one of them.  Just leave a comment below.

My followers (and loyal followers through their blogger readers) can have a chance to win the other stack.  Leave me a comment telling me how you follow me–through the WordPress software (this blog) or via Blogger’s RSS Reader. Followers and readers can have a chance to win twice, if they want to, because I’ll enter them in both.

Some of you, I know, just have too much fabric and say you’ll sit this out.  If you don’t want to enter, go see your doctor.  You are really suffering and need some medical help — or chocolate — fast.

I’ll leave you with this quilt, found on Fun with Barb and Mary’s blog

Detail.  Now leave me a comment and win one of these stacks.  I’ll take your names to my quilt group this Friday night and have them draw a name to win.  I’ll post the winner on the blog Saturday morning.  Thanks, everyone, for being such a fun group of quilting friends!

~~~Check back Saturday morning for the winners!~~~
