GIVEAWAY! My good fortune could be yours, too!

Quilty magazine's first issue came out last month and I found them on facebook under "Quilty".  Mary Fons posted that they had five boxes worth of goodies after their first photo shoot and that she wanted to give them all away!  All I had to do was be one of the first five to post their picture of a W.I.P. from the magazine and ta-dah!  They would receive one of those five photo shoot boxes!  I was one of those people and here's a smattering of the wonderful goodies I received!


Do you see the hand-written note?  Mary Fons was sweet enough to write that up for me!

Here's what it says:

I love the way she signed off by saying "Love and Piece" :-)

Boy, this made my day, let me tell you!


I hope your day will be just as wonderful :-)

OK, I'm feeling generous...
let's have a GIVEAWAY!

You will receive some of the goodies from the Quilty magazine box I received!!!

1.  Post about it on your website and place the link here for one chance.
2.  For a second chance, tell me what your favorite color is here at RocknQuilts under comments.
3.  For a third chance, let me know if you are a reader of the Fons & Porter magazine or Quilty magazines.
4.  For a fourth chance, let me know what sewing or quilting project you are currently doing.
5.  For a fifth and final chance, give me a follow here at RocknQuilts or let me know you've been following all along.

The winner will be announced at approximately 2 p.m. Central Time on July 4th, 2012!
Good Luck!  Viel Glueck!  Buen suerte! Bon chance!
Please spread the word - thanks!


Good Luck and
All the Best,
@

  86. Hi, Mary Ann. It looks like you hit the jack pot. I am going to try to do as you requested now which means I am going to have to get back on my blog and do something. It is really hard to pin down a favorite color when you love color but I tend to drift toward the red tones from the warm to the cool reds and even dipping into the red-violets is good for me. Usually the color I am working with is my favorite really.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Thanks, again, Mary Ann. I mentioned you on my post on my blog. I just completed a quilt, my very first one ever and made from my own fabrics printed through Spoonflower. Being new to quilting I am not familiar with either publication you mentioned although now, I need to check them out. I have been one of your followers for awhile now.
