The First Ever Distant Pickles GIVEAWAY!

Every rad crafty board has to have a giveaway now and again, right?

Not without listening to a little bit of droning first. Consider it one of those Tupperware parties. You don't get the free dish 'til you listen to me blab a bit. :)

Remember me asking about why you guys sew? What your purpose is? There was a secret motive (GASP!). This post is, without shame, to draw attention to something I think is a very worthy cause - The Josiah Foundation and Quilt for the Kids. If you poke over to the Quilt for the Kids blog, you'll see a familiar face - me! Quilt for the Kids is a driving force behind why I'm so involved with sewing. We've made a personal goal to All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL to donate a total of FIFTY TWO handmade quilts this year. That's a HUGE goal, considering I'm the primary seamstress for the cause! Take a moment and peek over at the blog and check out the Josiah Foundation's website - you'll learn a lot about an amazing little boy and the impact his life is having on pediatric cancer patients across the nation!


Alright ladies and gents, today's prize pack is a trio of funky nature fat quarters. 3 fat quarters in total, quilting cotton weight.


How to win?
You've got a few chances!

For ONE entry - leave a comment telling me what your current project is.

For TWO entries - become a follower of Distant Pickles! If you already follow, remind me.

For another TWO - become a follower of Quilt for the Kids.

And ONE last try? Poke over to the Josiah Foundation website, and find me the name of the adoption agency they sponsor.

That's 6 chances in all - Leave a separate comment for each entry - if you want two for following, enter two separate comments, and make sure I have a way to contact the winner!

Commenting will be open until 12 midnight, EST on Saturday, June 26th - winner announced Sunday, June 27th!

Comments are now CLOSED. Winner announced soon!

My current project is making baby blankets, bibs, burp cloths, tag blankets, and crinkle tag toys for a friend who is having a party (selling jewelry she makes) and her friends want baby stuff too! Here's hoping they BUY some of it! I've also got my first quilt(disappearing 9 patch- inspired by YOU!) in the works (using Moda Love U charm packs) and my latest thing is making aprons!
I'm following your blog and the Quilt for Kids blog as well.
I couldn't find the name of the adoption agency, but a little fun fact for you.. I am adopted! Woot!

Also, kudos to yall for committing to make so many quilts for the hospital. You are truly amazing!

Show Hope adoption grants.

Also, if I win this fabric I'll use it to make a quilt to donate. :)

I'll still make one for the cause, just not with that fabric. ;)
