Sweetheart Valentine Giveaway...

 I promised to offer up a giveaway this week, so I decided
that today would be as a good a day as any. I'm calling it a
"Sweetheart Valentine Giveaway"!
 Do you remember the Dresden plates that I made from the Martinique fabric
 last year? Well, I ended up with enough extra blocks to be able to share
some with you! I looked at the blocks yesterday and chose to make
a heart-shaped center instead of the usual circle, and then I added one
of Michelle Palmer's sweet, little cardinals into the middle of the heart.
 I had contacted her a few weeks ago and asked if she'd make up a
few of these adorable birds for me in a Valentine theme and, as always
she graciously agreed. I have some ideas for the others, but I wanted
to use one of them for the project I'll be making for this giveaway.
 The best part of my giveaway is that the winner will get to choose
what they'd like me to make with this block. I'm offering to make
one of the following for the winner:
• A Table Runner
or
• A Tote
or
• A Pillow Cover
I still have more Martinique fabric, so I'll be using some of it to
finish the final item. I'll also add a few additional goodies to the
package when I ship it out...and I'll let you know over the weekend
just how many of these gifties I'm going to offer in total.
  So, here's how you can enter to win...
1) Only public friends/followers (through Google Friend Connect or 
Linky Followers in my right sidebar) can enter. Leave a comment
saying that you follow my blog and you get one chance to win.
(You follow and read my blog - I thank you with chances to win gifts.)

2) Leave a comment on THIS post only telling me which gift 
you'd choose for a second chance to win.

3) Add my giveaway button (above) to your sidebar - linking back
to this post - and then come back and tell me for a third chance.

I'll draw the winner(s) on Valentine's Day 
Next Thursday, February 14, 2013.
Good Luck!!

UPDATE: 11:15 PM 2/14/13 - DRAWING CLOSED.
THANK YOU!

desertskyquilts said...

Don't enter me in the giveaway. I don't bother following blogs either way, because I never go read anything in a reader, so it's a waste of time. I only follow blogs by e-mail so it comes right to me. But I still wanted to tell you that your Dresden is adorable with the heart and that sweet little bird. What a great idea!

I follow your blog...have for years and love your quilts. It would be a hard decision to choose but I think the table runner because I could always hang it up for all to see!
You and Michelle Palmer are a dynamic duo! (I have many pieces of hers, too)

It really is hard to choose as any handmade item would be great but a bag would be very useful indeed.

Lisa said...

Ooooh! I'm now a follower and although it would be a tough decision, I think I'd choose either a pillow cover or a table runner. Although I would *love* a tote, I wouldn't end up using it because I couldn't bear for it to get dirty. Thanks for the chance to win. :)

Beautiful block-just love the birdie. If I won, I'd like a tote. So I could show it off everywhere. A tabletopper would be seen only by me & my husband as we have few visitors. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.
