June Giveaway- Mousepad!



Several of my friends (you know who you are....) have shamed me into getting back into blogging.  It's nice to know that I've been missed!

Let's start with a giveaway.  For June, I'm giving away a cute little mouse pad with birds sitting on a feathered star quilt. (They're telling us to get off the computer and do some sewing!)

You can get up to 4 entries.  For one entry, all you have to do is comment to THIS POST.

For a second entry, be a follower of this blog.  It doesn't matter if you're a long time follower or if you just signed up today... just be a follower.  Make a SECOND COMMENT to THIS POST and just tell me you're a follower.

For a third entry, if you have a blog of your own, tell your readers about the giveaway.  Sidebar mention is nice, but it doesn't matter if it's a post or on the sidebar- wherever- just tell your readers about it and do a THIRD COMMENT to THIS POST and let me know about it.

This month, you have an option for a 4th entry.  If you've ever made a feathered star quilt, send me a picture of it.  I've always wanted to make a feathered star quilt.  I need inspiration!

On July 1st, I'll use a random number generator to select a winner.  Good luck!

That mousepad is beautiful! I have never made a feathered star quilt, but I have loved the look of them since the first one I saw many years ago in " Quilt" magazine. :)
Maybe one day...........

What a handy dandy giveaway Sue. My scripture inspired mousepad is really getting gross...I was thinking of covering it with a mini quilt to see if it would work....yours is a much simpler solution! :)

My sister and I did a Feathered Star years ago. She has it at her house and I do not have a picture of it, but it wasn't as bad as one would imagine. Marsha McClosky (sp?) had a great book on the pattern at the time. Maybe you need to do a Feathered Star Quiltalong.
