I am participating in a one week Blog Hop sponsored by the Quilting Gallery. (March 8-14) The button below is a link to a list of all participating bloggers, who are each having their own giveaways for the week.
For anyone new to my blog, let me introduce myself. My name is Beret Nelson. I am an art quilter living in beautiful Alaska, where there is plenty of inspiration all around! I love to make art quilts, but I started making quilted greeting cards (mini quilts mounted on card stock) a few years ago, and they have sort of taken over my quilting life, they've been quite popular:-) I recently started making patterns for some of the designs. I'm working on more in between making cards! I also teach classes at a local quilt shop, which I really enjoy.
Feel free to look around my site....I have a page with my patterns, a gallery of some of my quilts, and a free motion quilting/thread sketching tutorial. I also include tutorials on some of my blog posts, you can look in the archives for those!
I'm still working on a way to have people receive my blog posts through e-mail...for now the best way to follow is to 'like' my facebook page, button on the sidebar.
I will give away one downloadable pattern (of your choice if you win) during each of the seven days. At the end, I will draw two names from all the week's entries (not just the winners) and each of those people will receive one of these quilted chickadee cards. (of my choice, most of them are already gone:-))
How to Enter:
To enter my giveaway, you need to comment on any day's post during this week and give me two pieces of information:
1. Give me a suggestion for a new card design. It can be serious or silly, anything counts! You can enter once every day, but you have to give me a new suggestion each time:-) My kids had a bit of fun with a few comments of their own...:-)
2. Tell me which pattern you would like if you win for that day! That can be the same every day if you want. Click here to see your options.
I will do a random drawing each morning (Alaska time) for the previous day's pattern, and e-mail it to the winner. Then at the end of the week I will draw a name from all of the week's entries for the two cards, and mail them to the winners. If you enter every day, your name will be in seven times for the final drawing.:-) International entries welcome!
If you would like a reminder each day, 'like' my facebook page by clicking the button on the sidebar.
Update: I decided to put the daily winners in here, as well as in a new post...Congratulations!

Winners of Chickadee cards:
I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, and would love to do more traveling and teaching eventually. I also have many tutorials, including some on you tube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
