(closed) A tad late but not forgotten Giveaway

Contest is over and Tanya (my wife) is calculating the winners.  I will announce them when the boss tells me what they are.


Today is GIVEAWAY DAY ok maybe it started on the 21 I am only fashionably late.  But that just means I have something better to win.  You can go to http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/ to find the full list of sites to visit and win at.  The contests opened May 21, 2012 and will close May 25 at 5 p.m. PST.  My contest will be open to any one, any where in the world.

Today I am giving away 4 fat quarter of Reunion, one of my favorite lines.




I am not a fan of  random number generators, so I will not be using that to pick the winner.  What I have done in the past for giveaways and which works well is to give you a choice of items to pick.  When the contest ends, I put the name of all the items picked into a hat (bowl)  and draw it. After picking one of the items,  I then put all of the names of those who picked that item and put them into a bowl and let my 7 year old pick the name.  So not complicated, but no random numbers either.

If you are the type that just hates this kind of thing, just put in your comment same as above and I will use the choice of the one above you (or below you if none above made a choice).  For those with no zeal for fun you can still play the game.

This contest I want you to pick your favorite quilt or item (I have some hot pads) from my Etsy store.  http://www.etsy.com/shop/richardquilts again if you don't want to visit use the above option to pick some one else choice you can also look at the Etsy Mini on my right side bar.

3 Chances to enter.

1) Every one gets to pick one quilt (one entry)
2) Followers of my blog get to pick another quilt (one entry)
3) Favorite one of my quilts (or the store) on Etsy for a 3rd entry. (or you could share on Facebook)

For those that are new to my blog, my name is Richard Healey I am a Web Programmer by day and Quilter by night.  I have been quilting for around 5 months now, but boy have I made a splash into  quilting.  I have not made many large quilts, but I set a goal to make 55 finished projects this year (1 a week) and I am well ahead on my goal.  At the rate I am going I will be done in another month or so.  I am making a lap quilt for every member of my extended family.  So far I have delivered wonderful quilts to both of my grandmothers (wife's grandmother and mine) that are still alive and recently one to my dad who is in a rest home.  The rest of the brothers and sisters, and their kids will get their quilts for Christmas.

Any way on with the giveaway, but I would love for you to visit me back again some time and please comment on my quilts.  If you have suggestions and ideas on how to improve please let me know.  I blog to learn more about quilting and learn from the wonderful things you can teach me or maybe I can teach you?

P.S. This Sunday is my wife's B-day and will have yet another giveaway, so make sure to stop back by.  On Mothers day was My B-Day and you can see what I gave away and what I have for my wife's B-day to giveaway.

Hey Richard, my first entry is the been puzzled quilt. I love this quilts bright colours and the way it all fits together. My eldest son has Asperger's Syndrome. He is 18 and is just about leave school. Hopefully he will start a job in September (in theory he is on a promise here but we'll see).

My second entry is for the etsy shop quilt. I love the blue and yellow ducks. Fresh and bright and reminds me a book I had when I was a little girl.

Finally, my favourite overall is the Granny's Gone Wild quilt. The colours just zing out it. Love it.
