Blog Giveaway to Celebrate the 5th Birthday of Quilting Gallery

Michele Foster is celebrating the 5th birthday of her Quilting Gallery with a Quilter's Blog Hop Party. I appreciate all that Michele does to promote quiltmaking and quilters who blog. I decided to give away pieces from my last indigo dye adventure. The long skinny piece is dupioni silk (3.5 inches x 20 inches) which just happens to be my favorite kind of silk. The rest are all cotton.

Starting top left:

9 inches x 9.75 inches
12 inches x 9.75 inches
14 inches x 9.5 inches
10.5 inches x 9 inches

Read Carefully:

1. I will ship internationally.
2. I won't be responsible if the package gets lost in the mail.
3. Winner will be announced on December 16. I will not track you down so make sure you either check back or leave an easy way for me to contact you so I can get your address. If I don't hear from you within 48 hours, a new winner will be selected.
4.  I love people who follow my blog and want them to know it so my followers will get their names put into the hat twice.

Enjoy the hop!

  3. Blue is my favorite color, so it is meant to be! :) I am a follower and just to let you know, I am working on my 12x12 for 12-12-12. I am about halfway there. The project is evolving as I am working on it. I am so into the groove, first time in a long time. The year of firsts ends on the 29th and hopefully life will be easier.
