It's giveaway day! Yay!


If you are here from Sew Mama Sew, then welcome to my little corner of the blogosphere! I do hope you'll take a few moments to make yourself comfortable and look around...and maybe even come back from time to time to visit and say hi.

Today is the official start of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day where tons of blogs out there in blogland are hosting giveaways this week. Back before I had a blog, I stumbled across this and thought it would be a blast to be able to participate. I love it because you can find new blogs to follow AND win some cool stuff.

So here's what I'm offering this year:



A fat quarter bundle of some of my favorite Kona purples! We've got Pansy, Magenta, Dark Violet, and Hibiscus. They are even more gorgeous in person. I also will most likely throw in some fun quilting tools/other purple fabrics.

My giveaway is open to readers ALL OVER THE WORLD! =)

Also it will close Friday, December 16 at 5PM PST.

To enter all you have to do is:

1. Tell me what your favorite color combo for sewing/crafty projects is. (Mine is dark purple+gray)

If you feel so inclined you may do the following for bonus entries:

1. Follow my blog
2. Tweet about winning some awesome purple fabric from PurplePandaQuilts!

Thanks for entering and good luck! Also don't forget to check out some other awesome blogs and see what they are giving away here!


EDITED TO ADD:

I have gotten many comments from no-reply bloggers. PLEASE be sure to leave me a way to get back in touch with you (i.e. your email address) if you are a no-reply blogger so I can let you know if you win. Also please put your email address in this form: purplepandaquilts (at) gmail (dot) com so we can avoid spam. If I can't get in touch with you, I will put your name on my blog for a few days and if you don't respond then I will be forced to draw another winner.

WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!!

That all really depends on the project! When you craft so so many different people you don't really get to choose your own color combos.

Elle said...

I love purple with almost any color, but I think I'm feeling purple and red for my next purple combo! Though if I win these (which I totally hope I do since I love so many of the purple konas that I've actually not bought any because I can't decide!), well, these would be awesome wih charcoal or medium gray, I think! Check out the purple placemat from one of my recent posts - I bet it would be right up your alley! Thanks for participating in giveaway day, and congrats again on your awesome stocking drive - I've pulled a bunch of fabric and plan on making some when things are calmer next year, so I hope you do it again! Oh - and I also thought of you again last night as my iron dumped water everywhere! I'm behind on my blog reading, but I'm wondering if you ever found the perfect iron?

i love purple and grey too! i keep wanting to paint a room in my house those colors, but can't seem to settle on a shade. they are all too pretty!

Saraccino said...

Oh... I hope it is okay that at this moment seeing your fabrics I would also go for purples and grey. Grey rather than black because the later one would be a too hard contrast. But otherwise I love the combination of blues and greens... and not very surprising also yellow to orange to red together :)

Jennifer said...
