Quilt Qwazy Queens Starts Thursday, Come See The Giveaways!!!

Worldwide Quilting Day 2018I am very excited about the start of this blog hop on Thursday. It marks the third year in a row that we’ve celebrated Quilt Qwazy Queens during Worldwide Quilting Day. I love that this event is held each year over something that all warms our hearts as a day that celebrates the quilter in all of us. Quilt Qwazy Queens 2018Whether your hitting your favorite quilt shop for the sales they might offer that day, visiting your favorite blogs, this fun event always tries to evolve around what is part of our everyday lives as quilters.

The theme this year of Quilt Qwazy Queens is UFOs. I didn’t ask bloggers to finish UFOs, instead I asked them to talk about the ones we have still to do, possibly finish one, or show off some pictures of there UFOs, as a commenter you have lots of power here to say what you think they could do to perhaps inspire them to finish there project. Some have finished there UFOs, I’m doing one for instance that I have wanted to finish for nearly 25 years now. I’m not going to get it quilted, but the top should be finished. I’m going to wait and quilt it when I take a longarm class in June (my one splurge this year) so I can rent them to quilt some of my larger projects that I’ve been wanting to finish. I’m never going to buy a longarm machine simply because we still have at least one more move in our lives and I expect it to be into a much smaller place.

If your not sure how bloghops work, this is the basic run down…A blog hop is where many bloggers get together and work on a project, tutorial, or pattern and then offer there works to people via a blog post on what is there featured day of the hop. Visitors, will visit each blog, comment and sometimes there are giveaways they can enter that are being offered by the blogger that day.

Each day of this hop has a giveaway at each blog, as well as an overall giveaway that you can enter each day of the hop. The Friday giveaway which is by Aurifil is the only giveaway other than the Fat Quartershop giveaway that will be held all weekend long. Otherwise, all of the other giveaways have 1 day only that you can enter them with. You must visit on that day to enter that giveaway. You need to comment at each blog, and each comment you make will allow you to enter that giveaway.

The first giveaway for this hop is being offered by The Fat Quarter Shop. The Fat Quarter Shop has sponsored a giveaway at every event I have ever offered on my blog.  We have been truly blessed that they are such a wonderful and generous sponsor for this event.

This year is no different with a gift certificate of 150.00 to the lucky winner.

FQSThis giveaway will run each day of the event, you can enter daily to try and win the gift certificate. The Fat Quarter Shop ships everywhere, so everyone is free to enter.

An invoice will be sent to you via Paypal, and shipping will take place via Paypal, so your Paypal email will be needed to send the invoice. You will receive a tracking number except for overseas shipments. All shipping will either be at priority mail rates this year (due to weight of gifts, none of the giveaways are less than 14 ounces. Paypal fees are added to that amount to cover that fee.

Please note, every effort is made to protect the prizes. They go into a plastic bin when I receive them, and it is covered by an airtight cover. I have a dog in my home and I have a smoker in my home, so I do everything possible to protect the prizes.

Most companies are very good about getting prizes off to customers quickly also, but some companies are overseas, so please allow all sponsors a 2-week time period before you report to me that you still haven’t received your prize. When the company is overseas, it can take 6 weeks to 90 days for an item to also arrive.

Whether or not you read the above, the rules for giveaways are in place to protect everyone. I do not want to hear you didn’t read them, they will be posted on my blog daily during each featured day. There is no excuse for not reading them.
