Quilting Gallery Blog Hop Giveaway

When we experience two full moons within one calendar month, the second one is the technically correct definition of a "Blue Moon." And, as this August 1st and August 31st both are full moons, so then, the "Blue Moon" is coming up quickly.

Being a lunatic myself, I've decided to hostess a give-away for the blue moon, but as it is part of the Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop Giveaway, the promotion will be open until September 3rd. My gift will be internationally available, so please do join in the fun even if you are outside of the good ole' U.S.A.

All you need to do is to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment for me on the Blue Moon. All comments left on the 31st who are followers will be entered into a random drawing. I will announce the winners on September 4th.

Please be sure that you are not a "no reply" commenter because I won't be able to reach you to let you know you've won. Watch your spam folder, too, in case my winner announcement gets trapped there.

And the prize? Well it MUST be fabric to be any good, right? So here it is;

http://quiltinggallery.com/quilters-fun/quilters-blog-hop-party/






FOUR FAT QUARTER FLORALS!!!!


And, this giveaway is a four-by-four! That means that there are four identical prizes going out to four different winners, so it is more chances for you to win!

Good luck everybody!

I knew the "Red Moon" that's like this because of the sun and earth, a kind of eclipse
thank you again for this great prize!

I'm looking at the blue moon right now... but it's not very blue here in New Jersey. The sun should be up in about an hour or so. (I'm up early)

Nancy said...

I'm so sad we can't see the blue moon tonight. Isaac could have been kind and waited just a little longer before bringing us rain. However, I did see 2 night's worth of nearly full moon and it was plump, golden, and beautiful.

I'm a new follower. I found your blog because of the blog hop and giveaway. Thank you for participating.

Marsha Cooper said...

I had noticed how large the moon was last night. I wouldn't have known it was a blue moon without reading it here.

My mom used to ground me "until a blue moon" LOL

I follow you and missed the blue moon. We are having harvest moons, pinky orange in color, amazing.
Thanks for sharing fabric.

Debbie said...

Several years ago we were at the beach during a blue moon. Seems like it was in Oct. Anyway we were fising on the pier and saw people on the beach begin to set up for a wedding. Felt like we were in a church sitting in the balcony attending the wedding of someone we didn't know. It was so pretty that night. Love the fabric
