296: Free Spirit Prize pack #1 from Market….

May 28th, 2011

I told you I scored a lot of goodies at Market right??  of course right….and since I have no pictures of Quilt Market....we might as well get to the loot prize pack.

Here is a bunch of stuff from Free Spirit and friends….Some Laminate fabric samples from Tula Pink and Anna Maria (two quilting divas who only go by their first two names…oh the glamor of it all) and two patterns and little cupcakey things that have fabric and I think candy in them from Verna Mosquera....I didn’t open them up to see before I gave them away—how saintly of me, huh?  (well, I did TRY to see what was in them, but I couldn’t get them open without ruining the presentation,  so there you go, jumping off that pedestal before I fall off  in my typical clumsy manner :) ) and two more magazines chock full of great ideas (none of them mine, but I am sure quite good ideas even so….  :)  )

okay to win this great big pack o’ goodness,  please comment below…and for an extra entry,  please visit my relatively new Blue Nickel Facebook Page and “like” it and then come back here at tell me you did so…....if of course you do…  To be Completely honest….I don’t really “get” Facebook like I “get” Twitter….but I figure I should probably hop on the bandwagon since about 89% of the world is already hangin’ out there….. I actually do have this plan in the back of my head for when I get a little nearer  to 1000 likes or friends or whatever about giving away a special quilt made just for the occasion….I have already designed it….It has 1000 pieces exactly….(but that’s down the road a bit…as I cannot see me really “working” that bit  of the picture when there are so many other things I’d like to need to do)....but if you are on Facebook go ahead and “friend” me too if you want…I do stop by occasionally and it would be fun to see what you are up to!!

Oh…and I guess it is time to announce the winner of the previous giveaway…..

Tabatha!!  who wrote that amongst other things that…..

Any orange/red/turquoise/yellow colour combination makes me swoon!

Those colors are most definitely Swoonerish Tabatha!!  Please send your address to me at bluenickel5 (at) earthlink (dot) net so I can get your loot to you pronto!!

Okay so now…start commenting to get this new prize pack….let’s say I will draw a name sometime midday on Thursday Pacific Standard Time…and then we’ll have ANOTHER prize after that…....

I told you “they” gave me a lot of stuff to giveaway….

ain’t they the nicest folks??

    How I’d love to just feel the laminate! I haven’t seen any in our meager collection of shops here! Great give-away!

  2. Jessica Levitton 28 May 2011 at 7:40 pm

    Hey, I wish I had got some laminates! I think I have to hang around later on the last day when people are giving stuff away more.

  3. Sandi Priceon 28 May 2011 at 7:41 pm

    What a super looking package of goodies. I know I could make good use of those things that “they” were just giving away at market. Thanks for the chance.
    Off to Facebook (where I spend way too much of my potential quilting time as it is because I do get it – LOL). I’ll be back to let you know after I “like” you over there.

  4. Elaine/TinkerVerveon 28 May 2011 at 7:42 pm

    Would love to be counted in on your give-a-way – ...and I already ‘like’ you on FB!

  5. Barbara Ambson 28 May 2011 at 7:43 pm

    Thanks for the give away….

  6. Sandi Priceon 28 May 2011 at 7:43 pm

    As of my “click” you have 30 people who “like” you on FB now.

  7. Barbara Ambson 28 May 2011 at 7:45 pm

    I am a facebook fan…

  8. Joyceon 28 May 2011 at 7:56 pm

    Rain drop laminate!!??/ How cool is that!! Living in the Northwest I definitely have a great idea for that fabric. Even if it is not a laminate I know the perfect bag that screams rain drops! Nice giveaway. Like the patterns too.!! Thanks for posting this…

  9. Sandion 28 May 2011 at 8:06 pm

    Hi Scott,
    Looks like you scored some great “loot” at Market! :-) I don’t twitter but I do have fun on Facebook. Your name popped up a few minutes ago in that “people you may know” box, so of course, I had to send you a friend request. And now I clicked “like” on your fan page. I like what you wrote in the “About Scott” section. It has taken me 40 years to figure out what I was meant to be. :-) Glad I finally found out. LOL!

  10. Mary on Lake Pulaskion 28 May 2011 at 8:26 pm

    I would love to make something with that beautiful laminate!

  11. Mary on Lake Pulaskion 28 May 2011 at 8:26 pm

    I “like” you on Facebook~

  13. Judy LeVangon 28 May 2011 at 8:55 pm

    I sure would love to win the laminates that you are so generously giving away! Good Luck to all. ;D

  14. Alexison 28 May 2011 at 9:45 pm

    This looks like another great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win! I totally have some projects in mind that need laminate.

  15. Alexison 28 May 2011 at 9:48 pm

  20. Tabathaon 29 May 2011 at 4:39 am


    Can I still participate in your Free Spirit Market giveaway? I am in love with Tula Pink’s Prince Charming! I’ve started purchasing fabrics from the U.S. online because we can’t find them here in Canada and if we do, it’s only one or two pieces from a collection.

  21. Rosanne Derretton 29 May 2011 at 4:56 am

    I like you on FB already :)

  22. Rosanne Derretton 29 May 2011 at 4:58 am

    Count me in please. I have sample from Jennifer but I think I am in love with it already. We cannot get it in England unless it it AB or AMH <>

  23. Amandaon 29 May 2011 at 5:25 am

    The Prince Charming laminate is so, so cute! Great prize pack, I have my fingers majorly crossed for this one.

  24. Amandaon 29 May 2011 at 5:26 am

    ... and I just liked you on Facebook! :)

  25. Kateon 29 May 2011 at 6:43 am

    Looks like another great pack of prizes! Thanks for the chance to enter.

  26. Tabitha O.on 29 May 2011 at 6:59 am

    LOL of course I Liked the page on FB glad to see you there!

  27. Tabitha O.on 29 May 2011 at 7:01 am

    So funny that your winner was named Tabatha cracks me up when I see others with the same name since it is so unusual. I can tell you had fun at QM…I didn’t get there this time because of a recent tragedy in our family but I hope to get there and meet you in person one day!

  28. Sharonon 29 May 2011 at 7:23 am

    I have been wanting to try laminate, great giveaway!

  29. Sharonon 29 May 2011 at 7:25 am

    I like your FB page. The quilt with the flying geese and other blocks is really nice.

  30. Melodyon 29 May 2011 at 7:29 am

    I love those patterns and the laminates – those are soooo beautiful!

  31. Kimon 29 May 2011 at 8:45 am

    “They” are lovely people, all right!

  32. Kimon 29 May 2011 at 8:46 am

    And how are you this fine morning? I’d love me some laminate!

  33. Kimon 29 May 2011 at 8:47 am

    And I liked you on Facebook. And, for the record, I don’t understand it either. And I’ve drawn the line at Twitter. I will not tweet for anyone. I had to stop somewhere!

    Now if we could just get everyone to stop upgrading their movies after the Blue Ray, life would darn near be perfect!

  34. Shastaon 29 May 2011 at 10:28 am

    Looks like a great prize pack! Count me in.

  35. Natalieon 29 May 2011 at 11:10 am

    Laminated fabrics…..and great mags! Thanks so much for the giveaway. Now on to your facebook page.
    Hope you’ll reciprocate.

  36. Natalieon 29 May 2011 at 11:10 am

    Just ‘liked’ you at Facebook; thanks, from those of us that don’t ‘tweet’ regularly.

  37. Coryon 29 May 2011 at 12:00 pm

    This is a wonderful prize pack. I would love to win it. Thank you for sharing with us. Take care and God bless, Cory

  38. Donnaon 29 May 2011 at 12:35 pm

    The laminate is lovely. And, “Pillow Parade” looks pretty near perfect. Happy quilting.

  39. Dawnon 29 May 2011 at 2:38 pm

    Oooh, fun giveaway! How awesome would a raincoat made with Prince Charming laminate be?!

    well the sample bit I am giving away wouldn’t do a raincoat…but it could make a cool matching lunch bag!!

  40. Pat V.on 29 May 2011 at 5:42 pm

    This looks like a very fun package of goodies! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  41. Robyn Jon 29 May 2011 at 5:53 pm

    Oh I love a give away, the laminate looks divine 😉

  42. gina s.on 29 May 2011 at 6:02 pm

  44. MaryBethon 29 May 2011 at 6:42 pm

    OOOoo, hope I win. I’ve been wanting to try working with laminate fabric. Thanks for the chance.

  45. MaryBethon 29 May 2011 at 6:42 pm

    I “like” you on Facebook. Thanks for the chance to win.

  46. Sydon 29 May 2011 at 6:45 pm

    I don’t really get Facebook, but I did “like you” on it.

  47. PAULETTE CLAYTONon 29 May 2011 at 6:51 pm

    not only do i love quilting, i LOVE guys who quilt.

  48. Jeanne Gwinon 29 May 2011 at 6:58 pm

    Is there anything better then all the little odds and ends you pick up at quilt shows! I always need more then one bag. I am anxious to get out and about this fall and collect up some loot :p
    I guess I have to do this in order to get a bag of goodies since I didn’t get to go the SLC or Paducah….....:( Next year maybe

  49. Jeanne Gwinon 29 May 2011 at 6:59 pm

    I rushed right over to facebook and liked you and then timestamped it so I remember to go back and read your news, etc.

    Thanks for chance of winning the goodies.


  50. Carla Gon 29 May 2011 at 10:26 pm

    Looks like some great goodies! Thanks for a chance to win! :)

    I liked you on facebook!

  52. Lynn D in NCon 30 May 2011 at 3:25 am

    Hey Scott – I don’t really get Facebook. I’m on there because so many of the professional quilters are there and I see what they are up too. Other than that I am afraid of getting sucked into the vortex of FB. I’m on PC too much as it is already. But I went over to ‘like’ you on FB. Mission accomplished. And as always, thank you for holding such a generous giveaway. You’re very good to your readers.

    Aww shucks, Lynn!

  53. Jodion 30 May 2011 at 6:01 am

    That is an awsome collection of bits, I can’t believe you have enough for more than 1 give away. Can’t wait to see what else you found while you were there. Sounds like it must be just amazing there (never been to a quilt show myself).

  54. Jodion 30 May 2011 at 6:03 am

    I also popped over to facebook to like your page.

  55. Brendaon 30 May 2011 at 7:35 am

    Love the giveaway…we are almost finished with an addition to our home (three seasons room) and my plan is to use “the prince” fabric for accessories. Love that fabric!

  56. Brendaon 30 May 2011 at 7:38 am

    I like you on facebook!

  57. Heatheron 30 May 2011 at 12:56 pm

    You really must have had a blast at Market. While getting gifts is terrific, it is even better to be giving them away, so keep having fun.

  58. TheBargainBabeon 30 May 2011 at 1:20 pm

    What a generous giveaway! I would be thrilled to win. :)

  59. Shelley Con 30 May 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Laminates are something I’d like to try. I did buy myself some iron on vinyl to get the gist, but the true thing would be much better I’m sure.

  60. VickiTon 30 May 2011 at 4:44 pm

    That’s so sad you lost all your pictures from Market. Even though others got a lot of pics, you probably took some that you wanted to have. Sorry. :(

    I’d love to be entered for this awesome package. Aside from all the awesome other stuff, I REALLY want the Quilts for Kids issue although I do love the fabrics and other goodies just as much.

    Thank you so much.

  61. Karencgon 30 May 2011 at 6:39 pm

    I would appreciate being in on the drawing.

    The give a way goodies are as yummy as dark chocolate…Karencg

  62. LoLoJoon 30 May 2011 at 8:10 pm

    I liked you on Facebook. Thanks for the giveaway!

  63. Cherie Mooreon 31 May 2011 at 7:06 am

    You know, I don’t get Facebook either 😉 I can’t believe there was a Dear Abby about someone being “un-friended”, what the heck??? Looks like Market was another great adventure!

  64. Angieon 31 May 2011 at 9:40 am

    I’d love to win! I am so impressed with all the great photos and inspiration out there.

  65. Angieon 31 May 2011 at 9:42 am

    I’ve “liked” you on Facebook. I don’t get it either. I really find it confusing to use at times. Oh, well…..I guess at 45, I’m just old. LOL

  66. kelleyon 31 May 2011 at 12:32 pm

    oooh, great giveaway!

  67. Indiannaon 01 Jun 2011 at 4:58 am

    It all looks fantastic :o)

  68. Indiannaon 01 Jun 2011 at 4:59 am

    I’ve liked you on FaceBook – I dont get it either – need a 12 year old to show me how it all works !

  69. Annaon 01 Jun 2011 at 5:55 pm

    So sorry you lost your pictures. I would love to see and feel the laminate fabric – I haven’t seen any in our rural area yet. What an awesome giveaway!! Thanks for sharing this part of quilt market with us

  70. robinon 01 Jun 2011 at 6:07 pm

    Thanks for sharing the loot. I mean, goodies. :)
