Blog Hop Party Giveaway & LAFF#8

Blog Hop Over


The prize for today’s giveaway is a $25 gift card to your choice of fabric stores that can be bought online.   It could be Fat Quarter Shop or it could be Jo-Ann Fabric & Crafts. It is your choice. I just have to be able to purchase it online and have it emailed to you or have the ability to send a physical gift card to you.   This can be even international so those not near me can get a gift card in their own area to spend. (2nd giveaway already going on today read below for links to that also so its a bonus giveaway day)
Today is also Friday so today's Giveaway is going to be mixed with my Link A Finish Friday this is my 8th week in a row.  I am new to quilting and set a goal to finish 52 projects in 52 weeks.  And I am on the right track with 23 finishes already this year (note only been quilting 3 months so pretty amazing if I say so my self).
More Blogs with Giveaways like mine can be found


OK for the rules of today's Giveaway.  Contest starts March 16th and lasting until March 23rd when I get home from work.


1) Be a blog follower either though GFC, RSS, or Email.  Mention how you follow.
2) Pick your favorite Finish from LAFF #7 or This week LAFF #8 I will put the linky code of both on this post so that you can easily see them.


So example entry


"I follow through GFC and my favorite quilt is Dots and Flowers on last weeks LAFF#7."


Note no way to contact you and you can't win.  I must be able to contact you for you to win.


The quilt name is the most important.  I will take all quilt names and put those names into a bowl and let Jared my 7 year old fish one out.  So for example if he drew out "Blue Zipper Bag" from last week.  All of you that picked that quilt will then be put into the bowl and one lucky winner will be picked out.


This is my rebellion on pure random number generators.  I just hate random numbers.  So no real magic too it.  Though the twist is if you don't like the quilts listed you can link your quilt finishes from this last week and pick your own quilt.  No reason for you to like mine, you can like your own.


Last but not least above I said their is 2 contests running right now.  My wife Tanya is pregnant with a baby  girl who's name will be Julia.  Up until she is born I am having a contest that if you win you get your choice of one of 4 quilts.  The rules for those 2 giveaways are on the 2 pages linked here Guess Julia's Birth Day and Time and the 2nd of the bonus giveaways is Guess Julia's Birth Weight

Awesome giveaway. It will be Fat Quarter Shop for me, for sure.

So, I follow through GFC (I think that's the one) and I like my own quilt (LAFF 7; Polka-Dots).

There are other quilts I really love too. It is hard to pick, so I'm voting for myself.

strandkorbtraum said...

I just wanted to stop by as you so kindly invited me. But I would ask you to hand my place in the drawing over to someone else. I will not be able to shop at Jo-Ann, they don't ship international (not that I could pay for that if they would) and they don't have online PDF patterns (none that I could find at least). But I'm sure you will make someone else very happy.
