Ida's Honest to Goodness REAL Blogiversary Giveaway!!

This giveaway is now Closed but thanks for dropping in.........please come again!




"The world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming it."   -Helen Keller

    

It's here!  February 23rd..............One year ago today I started my blog.  In that year I have met new friends, learned new sewing techniques, started and finished projects, and just plain had a great time with you guys!

So I have been telling you that even though I had the "Official Month before my Blogiversary Giveaway" that I would have a real blogiversary giveaway too, so here it is!

The Fat Quarter Shop has offered to sponsor my giveaway with this fabulous prize from their fabulous shop..........are you ready????



How about a Fat Quarter Bundle of Tweet by Timeless Treasures?? Yeah! That's what I'm talking about!  I wish I could enter this giveaway too!
But since I can't I will give you the lowdown on how to enter.....you have four chances to win:

1.   Yes, you have to be a follower of this blog....leave a comment and let me know you're a follower.

2.  Post a link to this Giveaway in your blog and leave me the link in a comment.

3.   Go check out the Fat Quarter Shop, sign up for their newsletter, come back and let me know with a comment that you did.

4.  While you are at the Fat Quarter Shop look around and tell me what your favorite line is.........I am planning to make some house blocks and I think the Summer Lodge line would be perfect!  It has wood panel fabric and trees, etc.......well YOU tell me what you like and leave me a comment.

That's it...........I will ask Mr. Random to pick the winner a week from today (March 1st) and announce the winner on Friday............

Good Luck everybody!  
Yes....EVERYBODY....FQS ships internationally!



     
Thank you Fat Quarter Shop!

What a great giveaway and how generous of FMQ to sponsor it. I'd love to win but you can disqualify me since it wouldn't look to great for your sister to be the winner. It would look rigged for sure :)
