Fat Quarter Shop Sponsored Blog-iversary Giveaway!

Hello! I’m doing this in a separate post today for simplicity’s sake. So here goes!

A year ago today, I started out at www.excellcrafts.blogspot.com. I had no idea there were thousands of craft bloggers; I’m kinda glad I didn’t know, really.

I soon decided a name change was necessary, so www.sewhappygeek.blogspot.com was born. But it wasn’t long before I started to want things that Blogger couldn’t provide. So I learned some HTML and started my own website, www.sewhappygeek.co.uk. I am so glad I did!

In the past year, my tastes in sewing have become a bit more specialised: I do a lot of quilting and only a little bit of handbags and other things. So my blog has changed too. But I still try to do a tutorial every Tuesday, and I freely admit that connecting with you guys has been the #1 thing that keeps me going.

So, with all that, I think it’s time for a celebration, don’t you? In order to celebrate my new pattern, Square It Up, which is on sale in my etsy shop and on Fat Quarter Shop’s website, the kind fabric fairies over at Fat Quarter Shop have generously offered a quilt top kit to one of my readers!

Here’s what you’ll get:

That’s worth nearly $60!
Here’s how to enter:
  • Go to Fat Quarter Shop and tell me your current favourite line.
  • be a follower of my blog (just tell me how you follow – RSS, GFC, etc)
  • be a follower of the Jolly Jabber, Fat Quarter Shop‘s blog & leave me a comment telling me
  • if you tweet or facebook about this giveaway, let me know – there are handy icons at the bottom of the post to make it easy πŸ˜‰
  • BONUS: if you follow me via Facebook or Twitter, tell me which.
That’s 5 chances! Have fun! The giveaway is open till Saturday, 3 September, when I will do a post announcing the winner. If the winner has left a correct email address I’ll try to email as well. Winner chosen using the And The Winner Is plug-in on WordPress.org.

  29. Good morning ~ I just came here after seeing a tweet from FQS.
    My current want/favorite (ok ONE of the many haha) is “Good Luck Happy Mochi Yum Yum”. I just love the fun colors in that and another reason is that I have a Grandson born three days ago now that I need to make a quilt for as well as one for his big sister who just turned 4 yrs old, four days ago. I think that would be great for a couple of little quilts.

  30. I am now a follower via GFC and if I spot a way to subscribe via email too then I’ll be following that way as well.

  31. Well, I was going to post that I was a follower of Jolly Jobber but decided to doublecheck first….oops..guess I wasn’t a follower on GFC, only via email subscription. I am now following them on GFC as well.

  32. I posted that I like this post on facebook. πŸ™‚ Seriously, I love your blog, and I love your pattern. That fabric is lovely, so I hope I win! Thank you for the opportunity.
