Leap Day Blog Hop Giveaway


Encouraging words of the day -
We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer. ~ Proverbs 16:1, NLT

Elizabeth of "Such a Sew and Sew"   is hosting "Leap Day Blog Hop Giveaway" today and has a “linky” on her page so you can visit the blogs of everyone participating.  

You have only One Day to Enter to Win.   All giveaways are posted on February 29th and will end on  February 29th.  The linky will open at noon MST on February 28th and close at 10:00 am MST on March 1st, to allow for people in different time zones to participate.

You will only have one day to enter all the Giveaways! 


Fine then.  Here’s my giveaway:

I have spent the last two days cutting out charms from my stash so what I have to offer are 33 assorted charms.  There are flowers of course, umbrellas, snowmen, tennis shoes, puzzle pieces, stripes, dinosaurs, bugs etc.  Why 33 you ask?  I got tired of cutting and quit at 33.  I used the AccuQuilt Go Cutter for some of them.  I don’t know if anyone else has used the 5-inch square die.  I’m not really happy with it.  First of all, for some reason, you put the fabric in at an odd angle so there’s a lot of fabric loss.  I wonder why they didn’t make it where you put in a rectangle a little larger  than the die, rather than at that weird angle?  By the time you cut the fabric down to the size of the die, you may as well just cut it out with your rotary cutter. Anyway, I digress.  Here’s a picture of the charms I’m giving away.

All you have to do is be a follower of my blog.  Just comment  and tell me that you follow.  

That is all.

Susan said...

I have that die as well, but rarely use it. I find that I can cut squares more accurately (on grain) if I use my rotary cutter and ruler.

Love the fabrics in your charms...thanks for the chance to win!
