added incentives

Have you joined the swoon-along group on flickr? Are you making progress with your swoon quilt? Only just heard about it and want in? Come on over - it's a whole heap of fun (I promise - there are discussions on how to quilt, tips for making your blocks, even a thread on dogs and quilts. We're a chatty lot.)

An incentive for joining in with the fun are the giveaway threads.

Hey? What?

Oh yes peeps - giveaways.

This week we have a Fat Quartershop sponsored giveaway (thank you Kimberly)

Fat Quarter Shop GIVEAWAY!

A fat quarter bundle of Domestic Bliss by Liz Scott for Moda. I love this line, it's so fun and fresh and there are so many great prints. If you want to have a chance to win you need to be an active member of the swoon along group. Come on over and join in with us! You can enter the giveaway (and the flickr group) if you pop over to here. Don't leave an entry on my blog - you won't be entered!

The giveaway is open until this coming Sunday (January 29th) - but remember YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF THE SWOON ALONG (And don't enter here - go to the group!)

AND we hit 600 members! Isn't that crazy? So in order to celebrate I figured an extra giveaway was in order.

Camille had already offered up a bundle of her brand new, not yet out, Vintage Modern range of fabric and a couple of patterns to one lucky person. So we've got that going on as well! Yay! Speaking of Camille's pattens - have you seen the new ones? To DIE FOR. Seriously. Go check out the quilts made from them on her blog. I'm making hopscotch next - no y-seams, I love it!

Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille

Thank you for all your fantastic comments on my quandary. I think I'm going to keep going, and audition different sashing colours, and maybe cornerstones. The more I look at the blocks the more I love it. But you can bet I'll be back with another quandary when it comes to sashing!!!

Hopscotch Along?

Jacey said...

So cool, Katy! I threw my name in each hat. I'm really hoping for that Domestic Bliss!!

Cara said...

I have never done a quilt along of any kind before. I am excited about joining. Is there a dead line for when it needs to be done?
