TQC Anniversary Giveaway

We searched our threads in the forums at TwilightMOMS and determined that March 31, 2009 is the day that we officially organized ourselves into a quilting group. To celebrate, the members of the Twilight Quilters Coven are participating in a swap. Each member is sharing a little gift with the others consisting of her favorite quilting tool, TQC memorabilia, or fabric. We thought it would be fun to host a little giveaway as part of our celebration. Since we put this together on-the-fly, there might be a thing or two more that we add but for now, we are going to show you what we are 100% sure that we are including.

Our giveaway includes a 4" x 8" OmniGrid ruler, perfect for trimming all those Twilighty paper piecing patterns as you go. And a few of our favorite sparkly fabrics, because vampires sparkle and we quilt about vampires. Fabrics include a fat quarter each of white with iridescent sparkles (a favorite for Vampire skin), Hollyberry Fairy Frost (red with gold sparkles), Platinum Fairy Frost (silver with silver sparkles) and Diamond Fairy Frost (not shown, but for sure included, black with silver sparkles).

First, the rules.
1. Any comment/entry that contains the words, 'real vampires don't sparkle,' or any variation thereof will be immediately deleted. This is not up for debate because vampires aren't real.
2. Please, please, please edit your profile (Google, Twitter, Yahoo, AIM, Netlog or OpenID) to include your e-mail. We need a way to contact you if you're the winner. If you would prefer to keep your profile void of your e-mail or are using the anonymous commenter option, then leave your first name and e-mail in your comment in the following format: address (at) domainname (dot) com. If we can't contact you, you can't win. Therefore, any comment/entry that does not have contact information will be deleted.
3. Giveaway is open until March 31, 2010, the date of our anniversary.
4. Winner will be drawn on April 1st {no joke}. We'll probably draw by hand, but in the event that we're absolutely inundated with entries, we'll use a random number generator to select the winner.
5. A giveaway entry consists of a comment on this post.
6. Each entrant is allowed only one comment/entry per category (listed below), for a total of four entries. Multiple entries in the same category will be deleted.
7. Negative, profane and/or inappropriate comments will be deleted. This is left to the sole discretion of the TQC Administrator.
8. TQC Admin and Authors are not eligible for this giveaway.

Now, let's get to the nitty gritty. How do you enter?
1. Answer any of the following questions:
  • What is your favorite quilting tool? OR
  • What is your favorite TQC quilt block? OR
  • Who is your favorite Sparkly Vampire?
You only get ONE entry for the question category, so just answer in ONE comment post. You can answer all three questions if you want, but you only get ONE post to do it in. Multiple entries in this category will be deleted.
2. Follow our blog. The easy link for following is at the very bottom of our blog. If you have a Google, Twitter, Yahoo, AIM, Netlog or OpenID, you can use an existing ID to follow our blog. Then leave a comment saying that you follow us (current followers, that includes you!).
3. Grab our button and put it on your blog. The code for the button is in the right hand column. The small button is 150 pixels wide and the large button is 220 pixels wide. Then leave a comment saying that our button is on your blog.
4. Blog about our giveaway. You have our permission to copy the giveaway goodies photograph and/or this post in its entirety. However, please do not copy other photographs or posts from our blog without permission from us (please feel free to link directly to any of our posts, though). Then leave a comment saying that you blogged about us.

Good luck!

my Favorite Sparkly Vampire is ... well, I guess it's changed because my first thought is JASPER, and I know it used to be Edward. But I'm more team Jacob and after reading a fan fiction story it made me think of Jasper in a whole new light!!

Thanks for offering this prize!!

SewCalGal said...

Great giveaway and great rules. LOL. While I loved Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles I haven't kept up with the recent Vampire series (Twilight...but hope to). So, I'll answer another question...favorite quilting tool: Porcupine quill. Yes, a porcupine quill is a must have to help guide small fabric pieces into your sewing machine to ensure even 1/4" stitching at starting point (and frequently finish).

Hola cuantas reglas, pero son divertidas. Mira he recorrido los blogs de las chicas que hicieron manta para Joyce, me encantan y en este orden: camioneta de Bella,el castillo de los Vulturi y la Pusch.
Mi vampiro favorito de todos es Jasper, quizas porque controla las emociones, quizas por ese amor incondicional a Alice,por el esfuerzo de ser vegetariano, por lo bello del actor que lo interpreta, no se , el me encanta.
Estoy siguiendo nuevo misterio y por ahora elegi para novatos. Ya mostraré, esa tela del regalo es fascinante, seria bello tenerla para completar el edredon. Buen fin de semana.

Colleen said...

I love my 8.5" x 24" ruler, excellent for cutting border strips.
All the TQC blocks are great but Bells's truck comes to mind. Her truck is practically a character in the books and makes me miss mine.

Ashley said...

My favorite is Edward. I'm so glad a friend of mine convinced me to begin the series two years ago. I've read it 3 1/2 times since. I'd love to use this fabric to create a little something for her for introducing me to the books.

Ashley said...

I'm following you guys.

Vesuviusmama said...

My favorite tool is my sewing machine. I began my first quilt by hand, and my goodness that was slow! Once I got a machine, unsophisticated as it is, it transformed the entire experience for me. Gotta love it!

Mystica said...

My favourite tool would be my sewing machine.

I'm going to go out on limb and say my favorite tool is my laptop! I've gotten so much information and inspiration via the internet and especially blogs that would have taken forever to accumulate through books.

I'd use this fabric and the ruler (in a size I don't have) to make a block for a coworker who loves Twilight and vamps in general and also quilts. She has it pretty rough and it'd be nice to do something for her that I know she'd like.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My favorite quilting tool is my small fiscar scissors with a spring to automatically open once a snip is made! It is also very sharp and perfect for applique.

Janet said...
