Lucky Leap Day Giveaway

Sorry, this giveaway has now ended.

Well, I promised you a Leap Day Giveaway, and I never renege on my promises, so here we go.

Remember when I visited that quilt shop in Reno? The one that wouldn't cut a fat quarter for me? And to get the width of fabric I needed, I had to purchase a half yard? Which amounted to two fat quarters? Well. My friend Dar suggested giving the other one away, and I thought that was an absolutely spectacular idea! Thanks, Dar. In fact, everybody please thank Dar for her great idea.

Here's the fabric I'm talking about:


So, I have a fat quarter of that to give away, but that's not all. The lucky winner will also win this One of a Kind handmade ceramic pin that I picked up at the Stitches in Bloom quilt show back in January.


Nice, huh? Won't you be the envy of all your friends sporting that around your guild or local quilt shop?

So what do you have to do to win these prizes? Well, here's the deal. Leave me a comment, any comment will do. But if you need an idea, Just tell me how you'll be spending your Leap Day. Be sure to leave your email if you are set at no-reply. No way to contact you equals no chance to win. This giveaway is open to all residents of Planet Earth, so all are welcome to participate.

I'll leave this giveaway open from midnight to midnight (PST), Monday, February 29th, 2016, or Lucky Leap Day to you. Good luck, Everybody!

Since it's a bonus day today I'm going to try to finish the t-shirt quilt I'm working on for my Aunt!!!

Linda M @ Pieceful Kingdom said...

Great giveaways! Thanks for offering them. I have to run some errands today so I am hoping to stop by the quilt shop for some fabric. I should be able to get some sewing done this afternoon. Have a happy leap day!

I wish I could say Leap Day was a day to spend quilting, but unfortunately, it is just another day to shuttle the kids around, make supper, pick up the house, etc. Same Ole - Same ole.

That pin would be a great addition to my pin collection!!

beaquilter said...

Uhhh fun fabric and a great pin. I am doing a blog hop today, and then I'm sewing PJs for my oldest daughter.

gpc said...

Thanks, Dar! I'm on my way to a routine doctor appointment, something I hate to waste time on on one of my Usual Days! After that, back to that ever present conflict between either doing things on my list or being a total slacker. Place your bets . . .

Janet S said...

Bonus day for me! Taking a vacation day to enjoy with a walk and lunch out!

Lorraine said...

Having been away for the weekend visiting our son and his family I will be spending time in my sewing room today.

Nathaniel Lane said...

I'm spending my extra leap day with my kids at the park!

Hi Barbara - I will be doing my morning walk, then a little cleaning, and then some sewing. I also will be taking some picture to finish my blog post for my March goals. Thanks for the give away.

This is a one of a kind pin. We are having heavy rains today, so my Leap Year Day will be spent playing in a pile of new scraps - JOY.

Kathy L said...

I read your blog every day, as much for the quilting as for the kitty news. We have a rambunctious 1 year old that gives us lots of joy.

Love the giveaway items. I don't know if you'll have Smitty or Maggie do the drawing, but I hope they pick me. Today I will work on a quilt top I'm trying to finish up for a class sample. Hope your day is wonderful.

Thanks for the chance to win these great prizes! Love hearing about Smitty and Maggie adventures.

Crickets Corner said...

It's finally going to be warm and a bright sun filled day so I'll be spending part of the day outside checking out the garden and seeing what I'm in store for this summer. The other part is going to be sewing on one or two BOM's that I need to catch up on. Thanks for the chance at the pin and fabric. Rina

Karen said...

I so enjoy reading about your quilts as well as Maggie and Smitty's escapades. Thank you for the opportunity to win the pin and fabric.

Betty said...

I'll be spending Leap Day with hubby since Mondays are his "Saturdays". Later I need to pack my supplies for Project Linus sewing day tomorrow. I've never been lucky playing cards, maybe I'll fare better with quilty stuff. Thank you for the op'purr'tunity!

Valerie Reynolds said...

Business as usual for me...teaching my second graders. SUch a great pin...thanks for the chance to win:)

CJ Smith said...

Just spent my morning getting all of my March bills taken care of. Ugh! But, on the bright side, I now know how much money I have available to spend at my LQS! Yay! If everything goes as planned, the rest of the day will be spent in front of my trusty sewing machine! :-)

Kathy MacKie said...

Spent my morning at Physio then unpacking suitcases and of course that is followed by laundry, thanks for the chance to win.

QuiltSue said...

My bonus day has been spent by going to Fat Club, then taking father shopping then trying to get to grips with my new car by reading the manuals.

Beth said...

Oh, Barb. I just learned that my uncle died this morning. Sad news, as he was a vibrant man and his daughter is one of my dearest friends on the planet. But I plan to spend the day writing down some of my favorite memories of him and digging up some old pictures to share with her. I doubt I'll be able to get to the funeral, so perhaps this will be a way to send some comfort.

Auntiepatch said...

We are painting the bathroom today. It is really small so it will take about 15 minutes after my husband gets through with the "prep". Love the fabric and the quilt pin!

Hope Mitchner said...

It is just a normal day at work (except dealing with the beginnings of a nasty cold) SIGH!.

works4me said...

Great idea Dar. :) That fabric would be a nice addition to the Play with Me quilt I am making from a BOM. Thanks for the chance to win two great prizes.

Sadly, today is just another workday for me.

Beth, I am sure his daughter will really appreciate your memories and photos. I am sorry for your loss.

Bonnie58 said...

Thanks for the giveaway, Barbara and Dar! Great fabric.

Sher S. said...

I spent the morning working with my neighbor teaching her how to sew. We are making baby doll pjs for her 2 daughters. Next project is to teach her how to make a quilt.

NancyA said...

Thanks for the give away. Love that fabric! I plan on spending the rest of this day sewing, having just returned from the dreaded grocery shopping.

Allison CB said...

Wow - love the pin!!! Thanks for the chance!! I am working away at my job but I managed to finish Assembling a quilt top this morning so I am on a big high!!!!

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

I really love that pin! I should be up in my sewing room, getting stuff ready for my guild's quilt show. I need to sew the hanging sleeve on my son's wedding quilt. I did wash it earlier today.

Donna said...

I had to work today, but I am hoping to get some sewing done tonight. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Lana Ku said...

I've been joining in a FB webinar on essential oils off & on throughout the day. Very interesting. Also working a bit in the yard since it's in the mid 70's here today. Hopefully I'll get to some embroidery work on a vintage kitchen towel in front of the TV tonight.
Was in Vegas last October. That fabric is so fun. And the pin is so cute.

Ann said...

What fun. Spent my Leap day watching knitting podcasts and working on my practice socks. Thanks for the chance to win some cool fabric and the lovely pin.

Lyndsey said...

I love giveaways they're such fun which is better than my day working .. boring and no time for stitching at all.

Zizophora said...

I'm spending my Leap Day sewing (and catching up on my favorite blogs!).

vicki said...

I spent the day running errands when I really wanted to quilt. Love the fabric and pin, thanks for your generosity! vickise at gmail dot com

Brown Family said...

I walked the mall today, till my hip was aching and then I completed a Tiny Dresden plate (6X8) 'quilt'.

Terri in BC said...

My leap year day was spent working, and now browsing the net when I should be sewing. I started off my day wishing my best friend a happy "4th" anniversary! Thanks for the opportunity, love your blog and sense of humour.

Pamela said...

Please excuse me if this posts twice - I'm not sure what happened the first time as my cat jumped up to say hello!

I went for a long walk, cut out a bazillion (actually only 132) teardrops for honeybee blocks and cleaned up my sewing room. A day well spent!

Judy1522 said...

Thanks for the great giveaway. After waiting for it to stop raining this morning I was able to take my morning walk and by that time it was time for lunch. I then caught up on some tv shows, did some reading and then cleaned half of the carpet in my family room. Only half because I wouldn't want to spend too much time on housework. I hope you had a great leap day.
