NOTE: I’ve got my weekly post over here – I had a fun trip to California’s mid-coast.
Sooo, if you’ve been following me you know I’ve been playing with Applipops. Applipops are kind of like well-made washers that nestle into each other. A set of them allows you to make perfect circles in record time with a very short learning curve. They are the coolest dog-gone thing.
I began to see the FB posts of Ellen Rosenbach and I was stunned by the beauty of her quilts. I’d not heard of her before she entered FB on May 17 and started posting these amazing quilts, many filled with gorgeous appliqued circles.
Ellen is currently working on this; I counted, 960 circles!! She’s only been working on this a few weeks.
You might be interested in following their IG page where they share more of their creations.
I ordered my first set and began to play, but quickly realized that it would be nice to have multiple sets so that when one circle is cooling I could begin on another. I went overboard and ordered 4 sets of each. Applipops accidentally sent me double my order – I don’t need that many!
So Applipops mistake and generosity is your gain. I wrote them about the mistake and they said to keep the extras. Rather than keep a ridiculous amount of Applipops, I’m giving away 2 sets of two – a $40 value each. That means one give-away will have 2 sets based on a 1/2″ circle and the other give-away will have 2 sets based on a 3/8″ circle.
Here’s how to enter the give-away – I’ll make it fun. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you miss in-person meetings, classes, parties and gatherings? One means I hardly miss them at all and 10 means I really, really miss them! Jenny would be a 10:-))
Post your comment by midnight PST this Saturday, July 18 to be entered. I’ll post the winners on my FB page as well as in next week’s blog post and you’ll need to contact me with your physical address so that I can send your Applipops.
Comment below and I will randomly pick 2 winners using the Random Number Generator. Sorry, no international mailings, just domestic.
But wait, that’s not all – Applipops is offering a 10% discount to my readers, so if you don’t win the give-away and order on your own, use the code QUILTSKIPPER for a 10% discount.
All you have to do to enter the give-away is comment, but here’s what I’d like you to do:
Sign up for my weekly newsletter here. I include interesting topics each week and it goes right to your email inbox. And it’s not all about me and my classes.
Each week I have a Quilt of the Week, some other weekly thing like Notion of the Week or, when I have a dog again, a dog photo of the week. I also almost always have an article about something interesting that is usually about art or quilts and a short intro about what I’ve been up to and thinking about that week. The header always has a photo of something gorgeous in my own garden. I always have my calendar and contact info at the bottom and I link to that week’s blog post. It’s the best way to get everything in one place at one time.
My readers seem to enjoy my newsletter as I get a very high rate of engagement. If you decide it’s not for you, just click “unsubscribe” and poof, it’s gone!
So there ya go – to enter the giveaway, give me a number below in comments. Use the QUILSKIPPER code to get 10% off Applipops. And sign up for my newsletter here. Thank you! And thank Applipops for the give-away!
