Friday Tutorial Sweet Diamond Quilt and a Giveaway!

Today it is my turn to post a tutorial on Amanda's site. I can't tell you how nervous I am! Of course I want it to be perfect and not have other people think that I am the weird German who is doing a lame post with lots and lots of mistakes.
Please go here to count them :)
Plus, it was someone special's birthday this week (my Mom :) she will probably not like me for writing this but I will hopefully get my cake to her in an hour and make it up to her).
And remember, I just hit 100 followers on this blog!
Heute ist der große Tag und ich darf mein Tutorial auf the Quilted Fish veröffentlichen! Offen gesagt bin ich total nervös... Ich meine, wer ist schon gerne die schräge Deutsche, die einen recht lahmen Post mit enorm vielen Fehlern darin veröffentlicht :)
Bitte hierhin gucken um die Fehler zu zählen :)

Jedenfalls hatte diese Woche auch meine Mama Geburtstag! Happy Birthday, Mama :)
Vermutlich findet sie das jetzt nicht so toll, aber in ungefähr einer Stunde werde ich mit Kuchen an ihrer Tür klingeln und sie wird das dann hoffentlich nicht mehr so eng sehen :)
Uuund, natürlich hat dieser Blog jetzt auch über 100 Leser, was mich natürlich extra glücklich macht!

So, let's celebrate! Since we are all fabric addicts, how about I give away something related to fabric. Now, I know that we all love the Fat Quarter Shop, so I am giving away a 25$ gift certificate. And maybe you could get yourself this lovely jelly roll :)

Genug Gründe um jetzt ein bißchen Party zu machen! Ich verlose einen Fat Quarter Shop Gutschein von 25$! Yeah! Man könnte davon z.B. diese
süße Jelly Roll kaufen :)
For one entry leave a comment. You could tell me how you like the tutorial or what fabric you are dreaming of buying...
For another entry be my follower.

For a third entry spread the word and tell me :)

Please leave a comment for each of those entries otherwise you won't get as many chances! And please make sure I have a way to contact you. If you get chosen and I can't contact you, I have to chose someone else...
I will close this giveaway in one week.

Happy weekend!

Um eine Gewinnchance zu haben, hinterlasse einen Kommentar. Du kannst z.B. schreiben, wie Dir das Tutorial gefällt oder von was für Stoffen Du träumst :)

Eine zweite Chance bekommen meine offiziellen Leser, die mit dafür gearbeitet haben, dass Ihr etwas gewinnen könnt :)

Und für eine dritte Chance blogge davon.

Bitte pro Chance einen Kommentar hinterlassen, ansonsten bekommst Du nur eine Gewinnchance! Und bitte bitte eine Emailadresse hinterlassen!
In einer Woche werde ich einen Gewinner ziehen :)


Ein schönes Wochenende allen!

Johanna

  58. Thank you for having this giveaway. There's a quilt pattern I would love to make using a jelly roll but I've overspent my "splurge" budget for a while and a gift certificate to the FQS would go a long way towards getting a jelly roll. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete

  61. That diamond quilt is so sweet -- perfect for a little girl to snuggle in. I would love to win a gift certificate for Fat Quarter Shop. I must be the only quilter in America who has never ordered from them! I want to though -- been drooling over Artful Home, Island Batiks, etc. That jelly roll looks pretty nice too.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Beautiful quilt and the instructions on the tutorial are very well explained and with a lot of pics, so this is perfect!Hope your mom had a wonderful birthday :)!

  76. The fabric lines I'm dreaming of diving into are Chrysalis, Central Park, and Sherbet Pips. I'm stunned to see that two of those feature orange prominently; I guess that after twenty-five years of my sweetheart telling me how much he loves orange, I've lost my distaste for it.

    Thanks for the giveaway.
