It's October! A Stitchin Giveaway!

Greeting dear friends -- I hope this post finds you well...

As I mentioned last week -- We've been creeping up on a few milestones in social-media land and a Giveaway would be a fun way to celebrate! 

First up, the Redbird Quilt Co. Facebook page exceeded 700 Likes last week -- thank you, thank you!
I'm really excited about new Facebook followers because there is a wealth of Quilting information and inspiration floating around Facebook and its easy and fun to share "Quilty" links, tips, and even giveaways on a Facebook page.  

If you have a Facebook account -- be sure to hop over and "Like" the Redbird Quilt Co. Page.

In addition to new Facebook followers -- the current blog followers via Google Friend Connect exceeded 300 -- Oh such fun!

Also, we're celebrating those of you who recently started following me on Instagram.  

It's really neat to able to post a quick image here and there so you can see what I'm stitching any day of the week.  It's quick and easy to take a shot with my Ipad an share it Instagram and Twitter at the same time.  
So, if you're on Instagram or Twitter, I would love to have you join in the fun - you'll get a birds eye view of what is happening in my day to day stitching world...   

No matter how you follow along,  I want to thank you for providing feedback and encouragement on each and every post.  I love to read your comments and try to reciprocate by visiting your pages.... always inspiring. 

Now for a giveaway -- a few weeks ago I won an awesome bundle of wool from the talented Debbie Busby of "Wooden Spool Designs".

You may remember the "Flower Basket" pattern that I made a few years back -- this pattern is from Wooden Spool Designs.   
You can see and read more about my "Flower Basket" by clicking here
Well - Lucky Me!!  Debbie had a Giveaway on her Facebook page and I was one of 4 winners.... she sent me this beautiful bundle of hand dyed wool and I would like to share it with two lucky winners. 
I will divide this bundle and ship an 8" x 12" piece of each color (4 pieces) to two lucky winners.  

If any international winners are chosen, I will email a PDF copy of my Spring Basket pattern to them.

To enter the giveaway leave me a comment letting me know if you are a follower (old or new).

If you follow me on other social media outlets -- let me know that in a comment too!

Get another entry if you share this giveaway with your friends (Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Blogger, Twitter).   Comment and let me know.

This giveaway will end Friday, October 10th at midnight EST and a winner will be announced Saturday, October 11th. 


Thanks so much for your support and have a splendid week!
Hugs,
Karen
