Blog Hop Giveaway!!!

Are you ready for a fun Blog Hop that's all about giveaways?  Me too!!!

Thanks to Quilting Gallery for hosting a Blog Hop Party to celebrate Back-to-School -

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

Of course I wanted to join in the party - who doesn't LOVE a party?!?  And I am really excited to celebrate the fact that AQAP now has over 200 followers - whoohoo!!!  So this is what I will be giving away here at A Quilt and A Prayer....

Don't we all just love Kaffe Fassett?  What a designer!!!  If I were going back to school, Kaffe's classes would be at the top of my "gotta-take-it" list!!!  And of course Kaffe's books are more than just projects and quilts... they are ART!  So much eye candy and gorgeous photography.....




Not to mention Kaffe's luscious fabrics!!!


This book is one of my favorites, so it's no surprise that somehow I ended up with a second copy. =^..^=  So I'd love to pass it on to one of you who would love it!  It is a very large, heavy softcover book, with 144 pages of gorgeousness :*)  Of course it is in perfect condition.  Here are just a few of the 20 projects in Quilts en Provence....








So how do you win this gorgeous book?  Simple! just leave a comment and tell me what you like most about your favorite blog site.  You do not have to be a follower to enter, but if you are a follower or decide to become a follower, I'd like to say THANKS by giving you an extra chance to win.  Just leave a second comment letting me know you are a follower and how you follow.  That's it!   

Why would you want to decide to follow me here at A Quilt and A Prayer?  Well, for all the fun projects of course!  With a little kitty cat fun thrown in too :*)  Here are some of the fun projects I've shared recently....
One Block Wonder
Medallion Block for Vintage Valentines
July Calendar Block
Moonglow!
The Blog Hop Giveaway event runs through September 3, so I will draw a winner at midnight that night (or close thereabouts :*)  I will be happy to ship internationally, so feel free to comment and get in your chance to win no matter where you live! =^..^=  Also, if you are a No-Reply Blogger, be sure to leave your email address in your comment so I can contact you.  Otherwise I will have to draw another name, and that would make me - and you! - very sad :*(

Now, you know you want to join in the Giveaway Party and see what everyone else is giving away too, right?  So after you have left your comments below to win the Kaffe book, be sure to click on this button to get to Quilting Gallery and check out the other blogs that are having giveaways!  The full list of participating blogs will be posted on Sunday, August 26, shortly after midnight.

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways


Good luck!  
And as they say in The Hunger Games, "May the odds be evah in your favah!"

Hugs & Blessings,
Teresa

  20. Hi Teresa. I have followed your blog awhile with my blog watch list. However, I had failed to make it official. I just did and see that I was number 200! So congratulations girlfriend!
    Love, love, love Kaffe Fassett. I have two of his books, but not that one. I so hope I win.
    Have a nice weekend.

  21. I absolutely love tutorials because I am so new to quilting. Thank you very much. alizavdw@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love tutorials and seeing finished projects!

    ReplyDelete
  23. There are so many fantastic blogs out there so I guess I like when they show what they are working on and are human and show the mistakes too.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am a follower through GFC - thanks for the chance to win a Kaffe Book. I met him at his booth at the Festival of Quilts last weekend so it would be cool to have one of his books!! Yay for shipping internationally.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What I like most about my favorite blog is the thrifty ness. I'm not able to buy designer fabrics all the time. In fact I have one fat quarter bundle that is designer and I actually regretted buying it. I've found beautiful fabrics in sheets, clothing, table clothes. Anyway, she shows beautiful things she makes out of shirts.

    ReplyDelete
  26. About to become a new follower.

  31. I always love looking at the process quilters use for quilts, and photos of their studios! It's nice to know mine isn't the only one that get's messy while in process of many projects!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Probably my favorite blog site is Exuberant Color - why? Well you see, Wanda likes bright and bold as much as I do and she makes quilts that are pure art..even if it is a bed quilt, it is ART. She uses color and value amazingly well. I hope to be that good some day. She also "plays" to create. Not to mention she shows quilts that she made from Kaffe Fassett fabrics AND quilts that she makes that are inspired by his quilts....now can you tell why I want this book???

    ReplyDelete

  49. This was the first Kaffe Fassett book I read, and ohmigoodness! It's so lovely! My favorite thing about my favorite blog sites is the author's personality. No matter what the topic is, their voice is real and valuable to me, and it brings me a little joy to read their adventures. (And even more so if they make quilty things for me to admire!)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I've never been able to take his class but I had the good fortune to be in the class next to him at Sister's one year and we loved his music!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love Kaffe Fassett! What I like about my favorite blogs is not too much "wordiness" or "preaching" but just little tidbits about WIPs and UFO, new lines of fabric, favorite tips, new tricks, anything really, but short and sweet :)

  64. my favourite blogs are smaller ones -without the bi-weekly sponsor update things. I like to see progress pictures ohh and it's really comforting if they make mistakes to, it get'S a bit depressing if they turn out one perfect qiult every week plus of course mathcing bags and pilllow cases and the odd birthday present...
