Book Giveaway - Week 1

I've been going through some of the things in my quilt studio and I ran across a mysterious bag. What was in the bag? Well, some books that I had put away to be used in a giveaway, that's what! I had completely forgotten about them - things tend to disappear in my studio only to resurface a few weeks later.


So, this means that I have a book or two to give away. Well, actually, I have 5 books to give away. Yup, 5 different books for you to win. With the exception of the first book that I will be giving away, these books have been kindly donated by Martingale & Company. I love their books and am very appreciative of their generosity in providing these books for me to give away. 


One book will be given away each week for the next five weeks; entries will open on Monday each week. Entries will close at 11:59 p.m. each Friday. I will be drawing a winner for one book each week on Saturday, starting on November 20, 2010. 


You will need to enter each week to be eligible for that week's book draw. The entry conditions will vary each week, so be sure to read the details carefully before entering.


You will receive one entry for this week's draw for each of the following that you do:

1.  Become a follower on my Chatterbox Quilts Chitchat 
blog - and advise me by leaving a comment on this post. Please sign up for posts by email on the right-hand side of the blog, not Google reader, to be eligible. (If you are already a subscriber, just advise me of this.)

2.  Become a fan of Chatterbox Quilts on 
Facebook - and advise me by leaving a comment on this post. (If you are already a fan, just advise me of this).

3.  Sign up for my Quilt Chatter newsletter by clicking on the top right-hand side of this blog and advise me by commenting on this post. (If you are already a subscriber, just advise me of this).


4.  Let me know what types of quilt patterns that you like to buy - technique and size (ie. pieced quilt or appliqué wall hanging) and advise me by commenting on this post.

You'll receive one entry for every one of the above things that you do - so that's a possible four entries.

You will need to do each of these separately - do not include all your information in one comment or that will only count as one entry. Be sure to comment on this post only so that you will be eligible for the draw.


This contest is open to residents of Canada and the continental United States only; sorry no international entries. 


Now that all of the details are out of the way, let me tell you about this week's book that you'll have a chance to win!


"A Critter Christmas" by Brandywine Design includes several wall hangings, mini quilts, stockings and other projects - 11 in all. I have a copy of this book for myself and think it is so adorable. As the title implies, the projects are full of cute little animals, including mice, bears, and squirrels with a winter/holiday theme. There are several small projects in this book which would be perfect as gifts for special friends.


Please feel free to tell your friends about this opportunity so they'll have a chance to win a book as well. Don't forget to check back next Saturday to see if you've won this wonderful book.

I like to buy pieced and applique patterns. I appreciate it when the applique patterns fit on 8.5 x 11" pages and are reversed for fusible applique. I really like your books too!

Types of patterns I buy.... tablerunners because I can get them done, applique or pieced. I collect applique patterns of all types. I don't draw so having a pattern on hand is my way to somewhat be able to create, but most of the time I make the pattern.

I like buying purse patterns right now. I'd like to learn a few basic construction methods and then branch out. I prefer patterns for smaller projects (runners/wallhangings) but will only buy the pattern if it is one I can't figure out on my own. Sometimes they are pitifully easy...

Mimi said...

I haven't really purchased quilt patterns yet. I've been buying quilt books instead. I'm a new quilter so I'm just learning the basics. But I've seen several quilt patterns that I would like to buy. They are usually applique quilts. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Comment #2 - I try lots of different patterns but probably lean the most towards traditional - star, pinwheel - kind of stuff. Thanks for the giveaway.
