Blogaversary Give-away

And to celebrate my first blogaversary I am going to give away one of my quilts.

Freshly made for this momentous occasion.
To be perfectly Frances with you - is STILL being made for this milestone!!!!

Here is a hint of it. It will be about 45" x 55" when it is finished - give or take a few inches depending on what sort of borders I discover at the quilt shop I am heading off to right now...






Please post a link to this give-away notification on your blog, and leave a comment telling me you have done that.


And in a couple of weeks I shall get some impartial person to randomly draw a winner.
Please make sure your blog settings are such that I can email you. It is a good thing to do anyway, because then bloggers can write and thank you for leaving a comment on their blogs.
And you know the rules for this sort of thing - keep it nice please!

P.S. Please note the rules!!!!
The only one is below the photo of the quilt - "...post a link ...on your blog, and leave a comment telling me...".
I am going to be tough here - you should know that I am the eldest sister of six kids. I was always the one held responsible for all the naughtiness of my sibs - so I am a stickler for rules (especially when applied to others....!).

AND THE WINNER IS CINDY OF B.C. Check it all out at:
http://banaghaisge.blogspot.com/2010/04/and-winner-is.html

Thank you all for your lovely comments, and your enthusiasm, and your entries.
And if you aren't a quilter but would love a quilt I can always teach you how to make one. Or I will make one but that costs LOTS...
Again, thanks heapsly, you are all wonderful winners. 
I had to type "Communicate fullness" as  verification on a post to Facebook. I reckon that isn't such a shabby motto for life, actually.
Go and communicate fullness!!!

Ozjane said...

Having just posted a bag to Canada for my 600 anniversary...I maybe feel I have a clear enough conscience to talk about blog anniversaries again.
Quilt is looking effective. I must get to play with one of those patterns of that ilk that are tempting me......when I finish other stuff.......LOL.

Wendy said...

I love the fabrics you used in your quilt. Please add me to your contest!

You'd have to be loopy to make a quilt so beautiful just to give it away. Just saying LOL. Please count me in - I'd love it! (I've posted a link on my blog, too, even though it means my chances of winning will be less. Aren't I good?). Oh, and congratulations on your very first blogaversary!

OMG. Just checked in to see how many comments you've had while you are away moving the kids into their gorgeous 21st century house.

So to be perfectly "Francis" with you I would love to be the recipient of your quilt. It is lovely..so happy looking! I did what I was told...and told all my friends...honest! I wasn't sure I really wnated to spreads the word, 'cause it would decrease my chances of winning with so many names in the pot, but you said do it or else...

Heading over to post it on my blog right this minute --- it's beautiful!

Banaghaisge said...

That is it - all closed. Nothing more to see. You can all go home now.
And put the kettle on and have a cuppa with me whilst I work out this double blind method of picking a winner.
I am going to shuffle all the names manually, and then re-allocate numbers to them, and then pick a number using a random number generator from the net.
That should make it totally random!
Will take me a little while - there are 88 entries there.

Letty said...

Beautiful Quilt. Posted a link on my blog. Hope I win it :)

Robin Hrabik said...

Forgot to mention the name of my blog, so you could go and check it out: http://www.CandyAppleQuilts.com
