6 Fat Quarters Fabric Giveaway


It has been far too long since I have had a giveaway and so today to celebrate a great and fun and active summer I would like to give away 6 Fat Quarters from the line Secret Garden a Michael Miller fabric line.  Tanya and I have been busy this last month.  In addition to the quilts and patterns we want to do personally we have had 2 quilts that have been made (one made and one in process) for customers on Etsy.  And to add a crazy twist to our life my oldest son James just got a job away from home.  He is on a construction crew in a small town 4 hours drive from home.  So to celebrate the joy of success in making quilts and the sadness (or happiness) of our oldest leaving home for the first time. We are giving away this pile of fabric to 1 lucky winner.

Contest will be open for 7 days closing midnight of the August 6th (or as soon after as I think to turn the comments off on this post).  Now how to enter.  All Entry options are optional enter as many or as few ways as you desire.  Leave a separate comment for each.

1) Leave one comment stating something Happy or Sad going on in your life it can be short or long.
2) Follow us.  This can be Email, GFC, Feedly or any other (if I am missing one you like let me know and I can add that follow choice to my side bar)
3) Share this giveaway so others can enter.  (Facebook, Twitter, Pin this giveaway on Pinterest, Tell your next door neighbor)
4) Follow me on Craftsy
5) Follow Richard and Tanya Quilts on Facebook
6) Comment on one of my Craftsy Projects or Quilt Patterns and as a bonus I will give you a free pattern of your choice from my Craftsy Patterns.

Thank you for the giveaway. A happy-sad thing going on in my life right now is my grandson that I raised from a baby has graduated from high school. Now he has a part time job and will be going to college in a couple of weeks. I am happy that he has grown up to be a very bright and wonderful boy, but I am sad that now he will be out doing his own thing. He has grown up so fast. I don't know where the time has gone.

Hi Richard,
These are some lovely fabrics for your winner- I am sure they will love playing with those fat quarters.
I am a long time follower of your blog and your facebook page.
Summer is always a mixed bag. Our grown son lives across the country from us in PEI so that always makes us feel a little lonesome for him- We are happy that we are going to a wedding this weekend ( our niece) and then to the mountains for a few days which are always beautiful.
Keep enjoying and sharing your passion for quilting.
Regards,
Anna

Anna McCurdy said...

My Happies at the moment...

...my husband has a job interview tomorrow!

...my oldest starts military school this school year and is super excited!

...I get to have my youngest with me for at least one more year of virtual schooling (he may want to go to military school later too)

...as for me, yesterday was my birthday and it was a wonderful day spent with my Doods and besties. Also, after 2 days of rest from sewing/quilting my arm is not hurting so much so now I can go full speed again!
