Milestones giveaways

IMG_6521Late last week sales of my Wandering Geese pattern topped 100!  Yay!    I started thinking about having a giveaway to mark the occasion.

On Friday, free downloads of my Scattered Leaves pattern shot up from 1 or 2 most days to 400 on a single day.  Downloads were lighter but steady on Saturday, then Sunday happened: 2077 downloads that day!

I was pleased (understatement).  Someone who will remain nameless asked if perhaps there was a computer glitch.  No, it was not a computer glitch! It turns out that the quilt was featured in not one but two Craftsy blog posts last week, which directed a lot of traffic to my pattern.  I’m quite flattered and giddy at the moment and decided the attention Scattered Leaves has just received warrants a giveaway too.

 

 

Here’s what I came up with. I have two sets of 7 fat quarters to send to new homes. I thought orange and black would be a nice Halloween touch coming up to the month of October.  As for the blues, well, you know I have a weakness for those.

Whoever wins them can add them to their stash, or use them to make my  Stretch  runner or Geese Across the Table placemats and runner.  Stretch uses 6 FQs and a bit of yardage, and Geese Across the Table uses 7 FQs and some yardage.

Leave me a comment for a chance to win, and tell me which of these two patterns you would like me to send you if you win.  Next Sunday evening, September 29th, I will randomly draw two winners from those who left comments. Remember that if you are a “no-reply” or anonymous commenter I won’t be able to reach you and will have to draw another name.

Now I’m off to do another happy dance!

  4. I'm not one bit surprised and YOU shouldn't be either. Your quilts are gorgeous. My favorite has always been the wandering geese. Love the colors and everything about it. Geese Across the Table would be my pick to win. I lived near the famous Horicon Marsh (WI) where there are millions of geese at this time of the year. Thanks for the chance. aschaefer24 at yahoo dot com
