Yippe Skippee!! It’s a giveaway over here at OPQuilt.com and I’ve got two prizes for you to choose from. Of course you could say either, and that’s just fine too.
Our citrus trees are bursting with limes, lemons and oranges all over Southern California, so I thought it only natural to put together a little something to celebrate Spring’s bounty, from our part of the world: a stack of six fat quarters in citrusy patterns and colors (and even one with homemade lemonade all over it). Add in three different spools of Rainbows thread from Superior Thread, and . . .
. . . a shapely little orange peeler that will help you zip off those skins to get to the eating (not recommended for kumquats — see below). They are waaaay too small.
The thread behaves like a rayon, with a nice sheen and good color variegation, but it’s a trilobal polyester, and Superior’s great quality. So that’s Giveaway #1.
Giveaway #2 is Sherri McConnell’s latest book, Fresh Family Traditions. Somehow I ordered two, so that means I can give away one to you! In your comment, choose between the book or the fabric/thread, and leave me a comment telling me your favorite citrus fruit and how you like to prepare it (lemon shortbread? orange chicken? lime coolers? homemade lemonade?). This opens now, on Monday, April 7th, and will close on Wednesday, April 9th. Followers are entered in twice, so if you’re not a follower, come and join us.
I hope you win a little sunshiney pack of fabrics, or a sweet new book from Sherri McConnell!
Thanks to all who entered. Giveaway now closed.
