GiveAway Day!

May 22, 2011

Hello hello hello!  Welcome to any new vistors here today through Sew Mama Sew's GiveAway Day!

Here is my GiveAway....


1.  I ordered some new business cards, and of course I needed something to put them in.  I made 2 of these and am giving one to the lucky winner.  The business card holder is made from vintage sheets.  If you don't win, but still want one, I used this tutorial - very easy!  








2.  4 fat quarters.... one Leanika/Lovebirds from Dena Designs (which reminds me of vintage sheets - can you tell I'm really getting into those??) and three from Summer Song, Riley Blake.  And some adorable little red buttons from Boutique Buttons.


3.  The winner will also get to choose one of my patterns shown below.
Whew!  Is that good?  One handmade item, some fabric, and one pattern!


While you're here, I hope you'll sit back and paruse Gen X Quilters for bit.  There's always a lot going on....fabrics swaps, contests, etc.  If you like it, I hope you'll come back soon.  If you've been here a while, thanks for listening.  I've grown SO much since starting this blog and I'm so glad to have made so many friends.  I don't sew alone in my basement anymore!  (Well, I guess I still do...but now I have YOU to share things with.)  My 1st blogiversary is coming up soon!


To enter for the GiveAway, simply leave me a comment here on this post.  If you are so inclined, tell me something you'd like to see from GXQ in the future.

The GiveAway will remain open until Friday, May 27, 2011.  And I am willing to ship internationally.

The winner will be chosen by a Random Number Generator and announced on
Saturday, May 28, 2011.
