A Week of Giveaways Day 1: $50 Long-Arm Machine Quilting Gift Certificate

It is every man's obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it. –Albert Einstein

I'm celebrating this week! Yesterday was my 1-year blogiversary and Wednesday is my birthday. Oh, and I have almost a hundred followers. So, I'm celebrating with a week's worth of giveaways! To kick it all off I have the most fabulous prize today. My super cute friend, Angie of 5 Little Monkeys Quilting, is giving away a $50 gift certificate towards long-arm machine quilting services! Angie and I are part of the on-line Twilight Quilters Coven and she is really amazing! She quilted LadyBug's High School Musical Quilt, a Twilight banner and a table runner for me personally as well as doing the most amazing custom work on the New Moon and Eclipse charity quilts we worked on together as a group and the baby quilts we made for two of our group members. The quilt pictured here is one of my all-time favorites of hers. She made this wall-hanging for her dad. Here's the back so you can see the beautiful quilting job she did.

As amazing as this is, it isn't even her fanciest work. Hop on over to her blog, 5 Little Monkeys Quilting, and see what else she's done. Then come back and enter to win her amazing quilting services. Here's what you have to do to win:

• You have two opportunities to enter. Please leave a separate comment for each entry.
1. Visit Angie's blog and then come back and leave a comment here telling me which of her quilts is your favorite.
2. Become a follower of Angies's blog and then leave a comment telling me you did.

• Gift certificate is for $50 towards or 25% off {whichever is greater} long-arm machine quilting services.

• You can enter each giveaway during the week only once {with the exception of this giveaway}. However if you spread the word about my week of giveaways by posting on your blog and sending people on over to check it out, you can have one additional entry on one giveaway of your choice. After you post, leave a comment on the giveaway post for which you'd like a second entry with a link to your post.
