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!
