Quilter's Blog Hop Give Away

I am joining up with Quilting Gallery for the Beat the Winter Blues Blog Hop Give Away

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways


My giveaway is for a fat quarter stack of Sweetwater Noteworthy!  I love this line of fabric!  

Fat Quarter stack for one winner

In preparing for this post I went to Sweetwater's blog and read how they came up with the idea for this line. Sometimes you look at a fabric a little different if you know where it is coming from!   

(Not included in winning fat quarter packet)


I used some of this Bucket List in a recent block:

Bucket List added to this block.

For those of you stopping by for the blog hop - welcome, I hope you are having fun reading new blogs, and entering in loads of give aways - I will be too!  

I am hosting a Flickr swap - Postage Stamp Block Swap, open to anyone on Flickr with a mailing date of May 1, 2013
Visit the group for details if you are interested.  


Fun Facts for the Beat the Winter Blues Giveaway:

2.  Leave a comment to enter - tell me something on your bucket list.

3.  One entry per person, please.  I will delete multiple comments to keep everything fair.
**I have had to delete a few comments - just one per person, please**
4.  I need to be able to contact you at the end of the give away - verify you are not a 'no reply' commenter.  If a winner is chosen that has left a 'no reply' comment, another winner will be chosen.
