I'm having a giveaway!

I recently realized that I have been blogging for over a year and have already reached the amazing number of 250 posts! So, in celebration of this feat, I have decided to host a giveaway.

There will be three drawings. The third prize will be this book:
If you make Project Linus quilts or seem to always have a friend/relative who is expecting, this is a great one. Cute, easy, quick quilt designs.

Second prize is five fat quarters of lovely batiks:
If you do landscape quilts, if you just love batiks, these are a great selection from Lavender Lime Quilting in Chattanooga, TN.

And, the Big Kahuna:

.......which is a mini Kahuna, actually. It's a Jacob's Ladder mini-quilt, measuring 14" x 18", made with Connecting Threads' Jacobean Garden fabrics. I think it's adorable, but, hey, every baby is cute to its momma!

If you would like to enter to win one of these prizes, leave a comment on this post by 7 p.m. Eastern time, Friday November 21. International entries are welcome. One entry per person. The selection will be by random drawing on Saturday November 22, at noon, and the winners will be notified and posted soon afterward. Winners will be selected for the book, the fat quarters, and the quilt, in that order.

Be sure that if I can't reach you on a blog, your email address is included in the entry comment. Good luck!

Addendum: Please be sure that I have your email address. I have all comments routed to my email account, and if the sender's email address shows up as noreply-comment@blogger.com I can't reach you if your name is drawn. This has already happened on one comment. Please, if you have already left a comment to enter the contest and this is the case, comment again and add your email address. I'm sorry, but I will have to disallow any entries where I can't reach you by your blog or email address.

Looking forward to your give away! I don't know anyone expecting a baby right now, but I'm sure by the time I'm ready to start a new project they'll be someone! The batik fabrics are my favorite! I always buy some when I'm in the States (can't get them yet in Japan). And the beautiful Jacob's Ladder quilt would be a lovely addition to my decor!
