Christa’s Quilt Along Weekly Giveaway #5.5

Hugs 'n Kisses Quilt TopI have decided to separate my weekly giveaways from my quilt along tutorial posts. Because the tutorials are so long, the giveaway announcements were getting buried.

Plus, the quilt along instructions will be on my blog forever, so including the giveaway in each weekly quilt along post would not make sense once it’s finished.

Click here for Step 5.5 of Hugs ‘n Kisses, posted earlier this week.

Weekly Giveaway Prize for Hugs ‘n Kisses 5.5

Thanks to all those who helped spread the word about my quilt along with my new button. (If you haven’t done so yet, please grab it from the sidebar and put it on your blog!)

For this week’s prize, one lucky quilt along participant will win a roll of fusible batting tape and a pack of Superior topstitch needles. Batting tape helps you use up all those leftover batting scraps with no mess! The needles are my favorites for both piecing and quilting.

How to Enter This Week’s Giveaway

Entering is easy – just post a picture of your quilt along progress on Christa’s Quilt Along flickr group. It doesn’t matter how far along you are, or even which quilt along you are doing. I just want to see your quilting awesomeness and I’m sure others do, too!

Because I’m making the giveaway change – anyone who has posted their picture on flickr so far is eligible for this week’s giveaway. Just leave a comment on this post with your flickr name so I know who you are. 🙂

Entry Deadline and a Little Housekeeping

Comments on this post will be open through Wednesday, April 3rd at 6 PM Eastern Time, (3 PM Pacific).  A winner will be selected at that time and their name will be posted the next day on Thursday, along with next week’s giveaway prize announcement. I will also email the winner directly.

Because I’ve separated the giveaways from the quilt along posts, I’ve moved all of the winners’ names from the previous quilt along posts and am listing them here. (They have all received their prizes and were very excited!)

Week 5.1 Giveaway Winner – Anne C. won a Gift Certificate.

      Whoo hoo! Be sure add your comment to my giveaway post going up tomorrow so you can be entered to win the weekly prize! I am glad you are enjoying the quilt along. I’m already planning the next one and am having “sew” much fun!

    I want to say, I am very much in love with this faded out Hugs and Kisses! I also have to admit I wasn’t excited about this pattern when I first saw it. I know now that I was judging this wonderful pattern by the color and interpretation of your sketch opposed to the pattern itself. Blues and greens are my colors and now that I’ve thought about it, this is why I fell in love with your Sea of Squares design. With that, I did some examining of why I chose the patterns for past quilts and came to the stark realization that I pick patterns based on the colors of the example quilts or sketches. Wow!!! What an eye opener!!! Therefore, I want to thank you for this valuable lesson you didn’t know you gave. 🙂

    Hi Christa! Thank you for the great instructions for this quilt along. I posted a picture of my first two blocks on Flickr and posted about them on my blog. I have since finished a full row and am about to make more blocks today. Thank you for the sweet giveaway! Luckypup Quilter (
