Thanks for stopping by FFP, but this give away has closed.
We just wrapped up the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, one of my favorite events of the quilt blogosphere and now we’re already here at another favorite, Giveaway Day, organized by the fabulous folks over at Sew, Mama, Sew. I’m doing two separate giveaways this time around, so make sure you keep reading. Also, please note, as much as I love international readers, due to the bulk of these prizes, I could only open these giveaways to the USA readers.
String Quilters Delight
If you follow my blog, you’ve probably seen a whole lotta stings lately, like this
You get the idea, I love string quilting. There is a time and place for technical, precise piece work, but there is a also a lot of time and space in my stressed out life for the freedom of improv strings! Maybe you need some free spirited string quilting in your life?
The Prize: 4+ yards Kona Cotton Solids and all of the strings that I can fit into this medium flat rate shipping box. These are some pretty top notch strings, lots of Kaffee Fassett, Amy Butler, and Anna Maria Horner, just to name a few. Most are width of fabric, though there are shorter lengths too and they are all 1-4″ wide.
To Enter: Guess how many strings will fit in this medium size flat rate box. Your guess is as good as mine, I’m not done ironing them and stuffing them in there. Closest guess without going over will win. In case of a tie I will draw between closest guesses for the winner.
Charity Sewing Giveaway
I’ve been very blessed with more fabric for charity quilting than I could probably use in ten years, though I swear that I’m trying. I’d like to pass some of the stash along so it gets put to good use a bit sooner!
First Prize: A large flat rate box stuffed as full as I can get it with fabrics for charity quilting/sewing, including some seriously huge cuts of fabric (think like ten yard cuts) so you have easy backings if you’re doing quilting. And there just might be some nice pieces of designer fabric tucked in, my little thank you for your good work
Second Prize: A medium flat rate box of quilting fabric for charity sewing. And yes, surprises for you as well.
To Enter: Tell me what charity you sew for. It can be the name of an organization or a group of people (i.e. the homeless, cancer patients, etc.) Please make the charity name/group the first word of your comment, say anything you want afterward. Winner will be selected alphabetically (Word 5, Page 100 of the book I’m currently reading). Again, in case of a tie, I will draw names for a tie-breaker.
General Giveaway Details: Open until May 25, 2011 11:59 EST. You are free to enter both giveaways, but please do so in separate comments. Giveaways open to USA residents only (APO addresses included). You must have an email address associated with your comment to win, if it is not in your profile, please put it in the comment as follows: name(at)domain(dot)com. Entries with no email address in the profile or comment will be disqualified. Please be watching your email on the May 26 and reply with a shipping address by May 27. If I don’t get an address for you, an alternate winner will be chosen.

Good luck everyone- Jill
