** HUGE GIVEAWAY **- Blog and Shop LAUNCH!

It's time that I OFFICIALLY launch both my new blog and also my recently created ETSY SHOP!  So, I figured that we ought to celebrate!!!  In honor both the blog and the shop opening, I am hosting a HUGE GIVEAWAY!!!  I have a total of 6 prizes to giveaway!!!


I am really excited about opening my Etsy shop. True, there isn't much in there yet, but I hope to add much more!  Please feel free to check out my shop!  http://www.etsy.com/shop/toerintx.  The shop has a couple of the quilts that I have made but also offers long arm quilting services.


Now, here are the giveaways!

 Robert Kaufman's Vera's Garden- 3 half yard cuts (1.5 yards total)
 A fabulous set of half yard cuts (3.5 yards) of purple and greys from the Lilac Moments line.
 A design roll of Tula Pink's Parisville.
 A cute Amy Butler fabric zippered pouch.
A Fat quarter set of Reindeer games (12 different prints!---3 yards of fabric!).

AND...
 Three 1 yard cuts of these three fabrics!  From left to right we have Journey by Kathy Davis for Free Spirit, Carinna Gardner for Northcott Fabrics and Monaluna for Birch Fabrics - Circa 60 Beach Mod.


Pretty great, right?!?  You will have to pardon the poor pictures as my camera cord is giving me issues and so I had to use my phone....

Anyway, HERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS TO ENTER and WIN!:

  • leave me a comment-- any one comment.  You can tell me about where you are from, something you see on my blog or in my shop that you like, what the weather is like, a favorite book... whatever.
  • If you announce/share this giveaway on your blog or on flickr by referring your readers to my blog-- you can leave two more comments telling me what you did to share about the giveaway.
  • If you become a follower on my blog you also get to leave one more comment telling me that you are now a follower or are currently a follower.
I will start announcing the winners on September 1st and will announce one winner each day until all the prizes have been given away!  IF you include your own blog in your comments, I will feature your blog if your announced as a winner.

I look forward to all of your comments!!!

--Erin

  3. Congratulations on your Etsy shop Erin! I see you are going to do long arm quilting, sounds like a lot of fun. I debate the pros and cons of learning how to do that regularly. Thanks for the great give away.

  13. Since you said favorite book I am going to tell you my fav book since I am currently reading it to my kids - The Hobbit. My 6 yr old is into it but the younger ones are having a hard time staying with it because of the long descriptive paragraphs. bummer.

  14. Erin, congrats on your new blog and store, what a way to kick it off with such fabulous prizes. I am doing lots of priming and painting at my daughters house in Iowa. It's sunny and in the 80's but all I have seen is a paint brush and a ladder.
    Have a wonderful kick off of your blog.

  25. Hi Erin - We met once at one of the Houston Quilt Guild meetings before I moved here to San Francisco. (The weather is awesome, BTW...today's high will be about 69!) There is a great quilt store nearby in Berkeley that I was excited to find. There is a quilt guild that meets there monthly and I can't wait to join at the end of August. I am also anxious to take some of the many classes that they offer there!!
