Sunday Funday Giveaway

by Julie Hirt

Welcome to Sunday Funday Giveaway week one. Would you like to win a Gypsy Girl charm pack and Aurifil thread sampler?


Aurifil has donated a Thread Sampler that contains five different colors in five different weights.

My favorite for machine piecing is Aurifil’s 40 weight Mako Egyptian Cotton. It’s a strong weight for piecing yet it’s still thin. I love machine quilting with the 50 weight because it’s so fine and blends nicely into fabrics. Try a heavier weight if you want your thread color to pop a little.

In honor of *finally* finishing up my english paper piecing project, I’m adding a Gypsy Girl Charm Pack from my stash.

Did you know one Moda Charm pack will produce 168 hexies?! After blood (needle pricks), sweat (hand piecing in a kayak), and tears (frustration), I now have a lovely square of hexies. What should I make with it? Maybe a wall hanging?

Be sure to check out the schedule of bloggers who will be participating in Sunday Funday Giveaway’s over the coming weeks.  Contact me if you’d like to join in!

To enter this giveaway just follow the Rafflecopter instructions.

Come on Party People!

by Julie Hirt

Summer break is winding down, the kids will be headed back to school and I think it’s time for some giveaway parties. Would you like to join me?


For the next six weeks I’ll be hosting a “Sunday Funday” giveaway.  If you have a blog and would like to participate in a giveaway, just contact me and let me know the date(s) you’d like to participate and don’t forget to let me know your website address.

When I post MY giveaway on Sunday, I’ll link up with YOUR giveaway.  Ask your sponsor, dig through your stash, make something.  Here are a few ideas:

  • fabrics
  • thread
  • scrap bags
  • notions
  • patterns
  • books
  • items you’ve made
  • really, almost anything goes

Rules Shmules:

  • Link your blog with a party button (below) for the duration of the giveaway so your readers can see all the goodies up for grabs
  • Schedule your giveaway to post that Sunday at 6:00 am Central Time
  • Announce your winner the following Wednesday (I’ll be calling mine Winner Wednesday)


GIVEAWAY SCHEDULE is listed at the top of my site.

I understand this Sunday is very short notice, but if you come up with something I’m happy to add you to the line up.

How it works:
If you’re hosting a giveaway your blog and blog post needs to include the button below that links to the Giveaway Schedule. Trying to keep it simple!  If you want to participate be sure to let me know so I can add you to the line up.

I hope you’ll join me – I think it will be a fun way to find some new blogs and link everyone up.
