Back in April I clocked up 4000 Followers over on Instagram so I decided to host a little giveaway. As I had just completed my Circle Game Quilt, I decided to offer the winner a custom made mini quilt or cushion cover of their favourite Circle Game block.
Here is a copy of my original post with the T&Cs:
@BendigoLioness : "Wow, my counter has just clicked over the magical 4,000 followers! I cannot thank you all enough for the support, encouragement, laughs, friendships & inspiration that you all give me. As promised, I have decided to offer a little giveaway to celebrate. 🍾 I know that a lot of you have shared my journey as I have made my "Circle Game Quilt" over the past 12-months. Many have commented on it, some have conspired to "steal" it 😜 & some have offered to buy it, but sorry, I won't be parting with this baby - it was my therapy after the death of my purr-baby Gemma and has helped me to cope with the anguish of her loss. However, as a way to say THANK YOU I would like to make one of you either a mini quilt or a cushion cover in the colour scheme of YOUR CHOICE, based on one of these blocks (I'll let you choose which one too). Yep, I will custom make it for you! 😃
1) Regram this picture on Instagram with the hashtag #fionas4000
2) On your regram tell me how I can colour your world - what is your preferred colour scheme? (Some examples: brights, mono, pink with purple polkadots, low volumes with a pop, whatever YOU want. Individual designers not guaranteed but I will do my best to accommodate your colour preferences).
3) Please state your preference of "mini quilt" or "cushion cover" on your regram.
🔸I will close this off on Saturday 09 April 2015 at 5:00pm AEST & after verifying entries will aim to announce the winner during #saturdaynightcraftalong .
🔸Entries open to all Instagram friends & followers worldwide with a public account.
🔸No private or giveaway accounts & human accounts only please 🙀 I will contact the winner directly to get further details from you before I start to make your prize.
🔸 For the record this giveaway is purely of my own and is no way endorsed by @jenkingwell . "The Circle Game" is a licensed pattern by Australian designer Jen Kingwell and I have bought the pattern for my personal use."
|@nanaani83 - Anita Sharp was the winner|
The winning entry was number #6 which was Anita Sharp from Fresno, California (USA).
Anita is a fellow Kaffe Fassett fan and she requested a mini quilt made from bright jewel tones. She chose block number 13 and after consulting with her on colours & fabric options, I set about making her prize.
