CQI Blog Crazy Giveaway!

This post was almost titled “CQI Follower Giveaway”, but we are NOT giving away our followers.  In fact, the point of this contest is to FIND more followers!!  Besides, who doesn’t appreciate wonderful needlework eye candy??


The Moderators (Kerry, Leslie, Hideko and Cathy) of Crazy Quilting International have decided to have a Crazy Giveaway and Follower Drive here on the CQI Blog. 


The Crazy Giveaway will run until Wednesday, September 15, 2010.  We are at roughly 50 followers now (actually more, but for purposes of this example, we’ll say 50).  For every 25 additional followers we get between now and September 15, a prize package of Crazy Goodies will be given away. So if we have 75 followers on September 15, there will be one winner.  If we have 100 followers, there will be 2 winners, each with a prize package.  If we have 125 followers, there will be three winners, etc.


The prize package contains 16 pieces of fancy fabrics and 4 lengths of vintage and modern lace.
     
It will also have  vintage rayon seam binding, beads, dresden crowns, silk ribbon, buttons, and other things you see pictured below.   We hope it will appeal to not only crazy quilters, but to sane quilters, beaders, collage artists and needle artists of all types.


     
The second prize package is identical.  If we get 125 or more followers by September 15, a third prize package will be added.  It won’t be identical, but similar in content and quantity.


How do you enter, you ask?   Just become a follower of the CQI blog!  If you are already a follower, you are already entered!  To keep the contest simple (mainly for our own sanity), we cannot give extra drawing chances for links or mentions on your blog.  However, we hope that you will kindly mention our drive on your blog anyway!!  Feel free to use these prize pictures and link back.  :-)


We appreciate you, our wonderful readers and followers,  and hope you’ll join us in growing our readership!

I just became a follower. Now I'm off to introduce the blog to friends.

I always wonder when give-aways ask you to become a follower, if simply subscribing ot their blog through your google reader will suffice. At any rate, I became a follower, which makes me a subscriber too! ;)

I just became a follower and am most happy to belong! I'm fascinated with crazy quilting and have been for a long time. I made a crazy block for a group quilt and LOVED it! I'm now planing to make a pretty lap quilt for my niece. I could use some supplies to get me going.
