Celebrate! A Giveaway

500 followers! 52 Quilts in 52 Weeks celebrates 500 followers on Bloglovin' -- plus nearly 700 on Google Friend Connect! 

When the number of followers topped 1000 on the two reported "following" methods, I wanted to celebrate. The DH pointed out that there might be many duplicates, as Bloglovin' was launched well after 52 Quilts began. So I decided to wait until there were 500 followers on Bloglovin' to celebrate.

And that day was earlier this week. Thank you!

I think this calls for a major giveaway, don't you? I searched for the perfect "prize" and came up with a fat quarter bundle of Kona's Summer '13 Palette cotton solids.


That's 28 fat quarters -- 7 full yards of Kona cotton goodness. Plus anything else I find to toss in the box for you.

Want it? Here's how to get it:

  1. This giveaway is to celebrate followers of 52 Quilts in 52 weeks, so you must be a follower. Either by Bloglovin' or Google Friend Connect, or via email.
  2. Make a comment on this post to say you're a follower.
  3. For another entry, follow @52Quilts on Instagram. Comment to say you're a follower.
  4. For a third entry, "like" 52 Quilts on Facebook. Comment to say you've "liked" 52 Quilts.
  5. International entries welcome!
  6. No-reply comments will be disregarded unless contact information is included.
  7. Giveaway ends at noon MDT (Mountain Daylight Time) next Saturday, May 24.

Thank you for making 52 Quilts in 52 Weeks a success -- you are the reason I am here!
