SCQ Blog Birthday Celebration - Green Fairy Quilts giveaway



I've hit some quilty and internet milestones:
  • My 5 year blog birthday is in less than a month - on March 12, 2016 
  • I have over 6000 blog followers, as of today, 5955 on Bloglovin' alone
  • I have over 6000 instagram followers, as of today 6292
So it's about time for a celebration. To thank you for being here, as part of my quilting community,  I have arranged for some giveaways from my sponsors and I will have a giveaway from me in the week of my actual blog birthday too.


Today, Green Fairy Quilts is sponsoring a wonderful giveaway of this bundle of 40 fat eights of Strawberry Fields Revisited by Fig Tree & Co.


Green Fairy Quilts has been a sponsor of mine for a long time now and I have to say that they are fantastic to work with. I love shopping at their store because I know that they will beat anyone's price (including shipping costs) on any of the products that they sell.

Green Fairy Quilts sells a huge selection of pre-cuts from Moda, Quilting Treasures, Riley Blake and Robert Kaufman. They also sell notions, books and patterns, batting, some yardage, and my particular favourite - a lot of different threads - spools and sets - from Aurifil, Superior Threads, Coats & Clark, Lana Wools, and Filtec bobbins. 

In the USA they free shipping for orders over $10 and for large orders outside the USA - over $250 Canada, $350 International - there is free shipping too. They have a special deal daily and special sales weekly. Clint and Judi Madsen run their family business in a such a friendly manner, it is always a pleasure to shop with them, and so I do often. And, Green Fairy Quilts gives too, they have supported charity work in Romania for years.


There are a few ways to enter this giveaway:
  • If you are a follower of my blog - existing or new - leave a third comment here letting me know how you follow me.
  • Follow the instructions on my instagram post about this giveaway.
  • To clarify, you can enter by leaving comments here as set out above and also by following the instagram post instructions if you would like. I will take the entries from both and draw from the entire pool.
  • Help me lovely people - if you don't have your email attached to your commenting profile, please leave it in your comment (emailhandle [at] provider.comorwhatever - is a way to make it more secure if you like.) The giveaway has been open for an hour and a half and there are already 14 people who are "no reply". That means that if their number is drawn I will draw again as I will not be able to contact them. 
The giveaway will close at Midnight on Friday, February 19 and I will use the random number generator to draw the winner from the comments on this post and on my instagram post and announce the winner on Saturday (from QuiltCon).

Edited: This giveaway is now closed.

Thank you for all the inspiration, support and encouragement while I travel along my quilting journey!

Best,

Leanne

Happy blog birthday! I enjoy reading it very much.

colourmehappy88 said...

You are very inspiring! Congrats on having such a successful blog.
I am a faithful supporter of Green Fairy quilts, myself... Just ask my husband! Lol

Lynda said...

not really clear - is this a giveaway here or on instagram. I have a mug full of those green fairy pens, a testament to the shopping sprees I went on (smile).

Linda Licht said...

Followed you on Instagram for a while - don't know how I missed your blog. Thanks for posting the giveaway with the blog reminder. Feels like I won by getting fun reading and inspiration!

Happy bloggy birthday and congratulations on the internet milestones! You can add another 677 Feedly followers to your stats, it just goes to show how many more people use Bloglovin' than Feedly! (I hadn't realised there was such a difference!) Here's to the next five years!!!
