A Double Pleasure Is Waiting For You! - Giveaway Alert!!

I know you all have seen the Doublemint Chewing Gum commercials. Double your pleasure...double your fun...

I have had 2 giveaways on the back burner for a while and they both have come in the house at the same time.  I got to thinking about the commercial for Doublemint Gum  and  I decided why not do a double giveaway! 

How did all this come about... Well...

I entered a weekly themed quilt contest on the Quilting Gallery website 2 weeks ago and won first place on the crazy quilt piece that I made for my granddaughter in 2010.  Tammie of Patchwork Gracie donated the prizes for 1st and 2nd place winners...we both received a 25.00 gift certificate.  I went over to the Patchwork Gracie site to check out her shop and decide what I would spend my gift certificate on. I called Tammie to enquire about the certificate and had a lovely chat with her.  While I was talking to Tammie she asked me if I would like to be her September Featured Quilter!  I readily accepted!  And to top it off, if you agree to be a Featured Quilter you win a gift certificate for 25.00 from her shop!  So I now had 50.00 in prizes to claim!

While we talked I asked Tammie if she would like to do a sponsored giveaway on my blog by sending 2 of the jelly rolls like the one I was going to take as part of my prize allowance.  I would keep one as my prize and then give away the other and she agreed!  So, Patchwork Gracie is now my newest sponsor!

I chose this Northwoods Artisan Batik Roll-Up by Robert Kaufman as part of my prize winnings.  
 
And now you all have a chance to win the very same roll-up!  How about that!  As the photos shows... there is one for me and one for you!!

...Reminds me of the Tootsie Roll commercial and that silly old owl!  How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?  ahhh ONE... ahhh... TWO! :)

OK... I have commercials on the brain today! ha!

I also have to show you this but it is hands off... This is all mine! mine! mine!.... This is the remaining part of my prizes from Tammie... I just love this batik!  I am thinking on something along the lines of a quilt that says "Welcome" since the pineapple is a sign of welcoming people into your home.  Isn't it gorgeous!

Thank you so very much Tammie and Patchwork Gracie!

So... How do you get a chance to win this lovely Roll-Up???.....   screech.... halt.... hold on there good buddy.......

I did say this was a double giveaway didn't I! :)

Up next for your double pleasure is Dave from Quilt Boxes!!  Dave has been one of my blog sponsors for some time now and we have been working to get some more of his
boxes over here to give you a chance to own one

But wait!!  This is a double your pleasure giveaway right??
Dave has sent over not one but two boxes to be given away this time!!  How about that!  There will be 2 winners for Dave's beautiful boxes!! He has sent 2 of his 4 inch boxes in different woods and design. These are so beautiful!



 

Dave will have an appearance on Oct 1st in Altamont, NY at a show sponsored by the library and Desolation Road Studios so he hopes any upstate New York fans will stop by.

And look at what's new over at Quilt Boxes! isn't this so cool!


OK!!  How about all of this for double your pleasure, double your fun on this awesome weekend!!!

Listen up... there are things to do to be eligible to win any of these 3 fantastic prizes!

The first name that random.org chooses will win the Roll Up from Patchwork Gracie... The second winner will win the darker box with the Star from Dave at Quilt Boxes...and the third winner will win the lighter box with the Churn Dash design, also from Dave at Quilt Boxes
You must complete the entire mission in order not to foreit your prize...
1. Comment here to be entered in all 3 giveaways.  This first comment will serve for all 3 prizes.

2.  Follow my blog if you don't already and post to let me know if you do and if you are a new follower.
3.  Go to Tammie's website, Patchwork Gracie  and send her an email to let her know you appreciate her generosity.  The link right here will take you to her contact page.  You will see her address and right below that her phone number.  Her email is right under her phone number.  It is small but it is there.

While you are on the Patchwork Gracie website, look around... You might just find something that you cannot live without!  And I am sure Tammie would appreciate any and all purchases!  Not mandatory.. but you never know when something might just strike your fancy!

4.  Now it is Dave's turn to shine...  Hop over to Dave's blog and read up on what he has going on.  Leave him some comment love and then come back here to let me know you went over.  Be sure to tell him how awesome he is for giving away his beautiful work! 

I think Dave's link to the comment box is dark like his background.

Click right beside of the title to his post and a new page will open...you will find the comment box at the bottom of the post on that new page. 


Dave has a new Art Fire Shop so go over there and see his new creations!  Think CHRISTMAS while you are there!  I can't think of anyone who wouldn't love getting one of Dave's boxes as a gift during the holidays!  Again, not mandatory that you buy anything but hey, it doesn't hurt to look!

Dave wants you all to know this:  
Everyone should be sure and sign up for his news letter (top right of his blog) which gets you entered in all of his giveaways and gets you exclusive coupons from his Art Fire store!


________________________________________

That's it... 4 things to do to be entered to win one of these 3 awesome prizes!!  And you must do all 4 to be eligible so don't forget one! 
These merchants offer up really nice prizes so it is worth the little extra effort to be signed up for a chance to win!
The giveaway will run until next Sunday evening, September 18th, at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time!  After that I will close sign ups and draw 3 winners!!
Good luck everyone!!

4. I didn't see a comment link on Dave's website, but also sent him a thank you email.

BTW, I have some of that pineapple red batik fabric. It will be perfect for a BOM border if/when I ever get those blocks finished!

Thanks again!

I am a follower and I am so glad that I am! I would hate to have missed this giveaway. The fabric roll is beautiful and there are so many things you can those fabric rolls. Dave's quilt boxes are truly a work of art. Such nice keepsakes and surely will be passed down as a heirloom. This is a great giveaway and I am thanking you, just as I did Tammie and Dave! Very nice!

I just left a comment on Dave`s blog, telling him about getting to see one of his boxes at our retreat.
And to thank him for donating 2 for you to giveaway.
Now I did all four of my requirements.
Have a great day Q. And just a reminder to stop a minute today, and remember that horrible day 10 years ago. And why we live in the greatest country in the world, the people who went in and the plane that crashed that saved so many more lives.
