Marmalade for You!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED

I intended to offer a giveaway on the occasion of reaching 150 followers, but I blinked and missed it! I'm marveling that 152 of you would be interested in my quilt-y doin's and life. Thank you!

Still, as you know, it's never too late for a giveaway!

Tammy
Tammy, who owns the online quilt shop Marmalade Fabrics, has kindly offered a giveaway through my blog. I'm very excited for you to get to know her. She's not only really nice through her business and blog - A Content Life - I know first-hand that she's a sweetie in person too.

And she has excellent taste in fabrics! I first found Marmalade when I was looking for Kaufmann Kona solids, and boy, does she have them! Check out those Bottled Rainbows. Yum!

See her modern prints in yardages as well as colorful bundles. And be sure to check out the patterns you won't find anywhere else!


Recently I made this Trio Tote bag using Outside Oslo fabrics from Marmalade. (See the previous blog post.)

I'd encourage you to browse her shop and see what you like. Do that. Then come back here to make one comment for one entry to win a $25 Marmalade Fabrics gift certificate! How cool is that... to be able to select whatever you want!?


Complete this sentence in your comment:
"If I won a Marmalade Fabrics $25 gift certificate, I would choose... "


You don't need to do anything else. No need to follow; no need to blog about this giveaway; and definitely no need to Facebook or Twitter! Life's already demanding enough without me sending you hither and yon for a chance to win.

So to wrap it all up, it's:
  • One chance/one comment to win 
  • Open to commenters worldwide 
  • Ending Sunday (midnight US Central time), August 28 

Since I attended my 40th high school reunion in June, I'll leave you with this...

I don't want to brag or make anyone jealous or anything, 
but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
Linda

Congrats on 152 followers, I've been one for a long time now, Linda, and you always have good shares, girl. It's not hard to understand your number at all.
So, "If I won a Marmalade Fabrics $25 gift certificate, I would choose...the bottled rainbows collection, definitely!" Putting money with it to buy some more yummy fabrics I saw while lookin' around over there, I'm sure....

You definitely have more than 150 followers, I don't generally use the blogger follow feature, I just read via google reader, which happens to say that you have 219 blog subscribers... so there ya go!

Anywho, I really need to buckle down & get some of that Outside Oslo fabric before it disappears!
