Blog Giveaway!!!!

I've been blogging for about a year now and thought it might be my turn to have a giveaway. I absolutely LOVE this line of fabric. It's called "Serendipity" by Piece 'O Cake. It came out in 2006 and I've made a few things with "some" of it. I've also hoarded "some" of it.
I've made a table mat and matching napkins.


Most recently I've made this lap quilt: I quilted it with daisy "loopidy loops". Right now it's at the Tulsa State Fair where it will undoubtedly win a blue ribbon! ha ha.





The first picture is my giveaway--6 fat quarters from this line of fabric. If my quilt DOES win a blue ribbon, I'll throw in a couple of extra fat quarters. So the drawing will be on Saturday, October 3. My husband is having hip replacement surgery next week, so while he's still under the influence of drugs, I will ask him to pick the winning number. I'll also sneak away to the fair to see if the quilt has won a ribbon.
Leave a comment for a chance to win. Mention me on your blog, then come back to tell me you've done so and you'll have another chance. Seems like a lot of trouble for a few fats, but hey, it's my first giveaway. I have to see if anyone really does read my blog. GOOD LUCK!

I love your wall hanging! And the blog looks great. I haven't seen it for a while, because my home computer has been on the fritz, but it's back up and running now. You don't have to count me for your drawing, unless you want to and then I will just give it back to you, LOL.
