Big Quilt Give-Away

*** A winner has been announced, thank you for participating. ***

It's about time to give something away!

boy/girl crayon quilt

Why? Well, no real reason, except that it seems like a good idea.

boy/girl crayon quiltBut just in case you need a reason, and a really good one, the quilt give-away is to announce and celebrate the fact that right now, through next Monday, there are no shipping charges on any items in the shop. None at all. Not to Canada, not to Topeka, not to anywhere at all.

This means that you can get a sale quilt at 20% off AND free shipping. It's the opportunity of a lifetime (maybe not quite that, but a great deal).

So here's the scoop ...

boy/girl crayon quilt backsideThis is one of my favorite new quilts. It hadn't yet made it into the shop, and is really excited to be given away. There's a lot more information about the quilt here. Basically, it's crib or lap sized, full of bright fun colors, and just lovely.

To enter leave a comment of any sort ... a compliment, favorite summer treat, a simple hi ... whatever floats your boat (one per person). To get another entry post about the contest with a link to this post on your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comment section here (one per blog). For another entry twitter an announcement of the contest and the link to this post, as well as @becauseimme somewhere in the tweet. To get five more entries buy something in the shop and let me know who you are and what you bought in this comment section.

This contest will end Monday, July 20th at midnight.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Okay so my name is "Jody" to, I must admit that many times I sign my name "Just Me", so your blog intrigues me with your name & the statement "because I'm Me"...you sound a bit like me!

    Your quilt is very inspirational, it shows love of colors, love of quilting, besides it is a "very beautiful quilt, made with loving hands".

    Your free give away is perhaps a wonderful way to give back to those who inspire you, or those who make you feel good, either way....your quilt of "beauty" is very lovely..

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh! What an offer! I love so many of your wonderful quilts and constanly wonder how you gather the time to work on them and how you organize yourself! Fantastic work and would be honored to be entered in the contest! Thanks!!

    This colorful quilt is absolutely beeeeoooooootiful. I am amazed by your craftmanship. The colors blend so well. An artist myself, I started 20 plus years ago with carefully selected hues of greens and blues just like on the back of your quilt as a base for my nest...(pre children) Four kids later we have so many colors going on I had a interior designer friend recently say (refering to was the lively artwork and crafted pieces of the kids I refuse to tuck away, and proudly display as our home decor.) "You have all the colors of the rainbow in here, and feels like love! and I LOVE LOVE the quilt...
