SMS Giveaway Day is Here!!!!

Technically I'm a day early, but the giveaways have to be posted by 9:00 a.m. eastern time and I'm not into waking up at 5:00 a.m. Pacific time tomorrow morning to make sure that happens....so if you're surfing tonight, feel free to get your comments in and secure your chance to win.....

THIS
Flights of Fancy
"Flights of Fancy"

Regular readers will recognize this as my latest mini-quilt obsession. You can see my previous two here and here. So much fun to make and I'm thrilled to offer this up for one lucky winner.

Flights of Fancy

The bestest parts are (a) a top-secret and super fun backing on this which I will reveal with the winner's name, and (b) a sweet little quilt hanger that will accompany this mini to it's new home.

All you need to do is leave a comment (I'll ship anywhere on Earth. Sorry space station cosmonauts, but Canada Post rates are already out of this world). Don't forget to head back to Sew Mama Sew for your next Giveaway Day destination! Good luck and thanks for visiting....you are welcome back anytime.

Better yet, follow along and don't miss a thing!

The comments will remain open until May 20th, 9 p.m. Pacific time, at which time I will call upon the talented Random Number Generator to choose a winner. Please make sure you leave an email address I can use to contact you if it is not embedded in your comment.

COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED...WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT FRIDAY MORNING!
