Suz-A-Palooza Week 4: The Grand Prize Week!

I'd love to tell you all about our trip to the Denver Modernism show this past weekend, but due to some unplanned interruptions today, I would like to get our last week of The Palooza's instructions out to you sooner, rather than later. ;)

Friends, please be sure to rack up those extra entries, as this is the week that counts the most for the Grand Prize giveaway!

The Grand Prize . . .

4-pack 50 wt. 100% cotton thread by AURIfil.

3 SuzGuz Designs Patterns.

Total retail value of Suz-A-Palooza Grand Prize package: over $260.00.

You may recall me saying earlier that the Grand Prize was worth over $150.00. I decided to add a few more items and hope you like it!

How to participate in our Final Week Grand Prize Giveaway:

1. Please answer the 2-part question found on my FACEBOOK FAN PAGE. (worth 2 entries)

2. All month long, we've had the chance to learn lots of new things. I hope you've enjoyed finding out about new projects, new ideas, or perhaps even a new collection of fabrics you'd like to incorporate into your next quilt!

For your final BONUS entry, please leave a comment on this blog post, below, letting us know what most inspired you during this month-long giveaway. Please contribute anything that made you take note of, such as a new project or fabric collection you'd like to try--or buy!, a new recipe that appealed to you, or perhaps a new skill you'd like to take up!

Finally, just a quick reminder as to why I decided to host Suz-A-Palooza . . . There are two more issues of McCall's Quilting magazine that will include Part III and Part IV of the 4-Part Sugar Roses Series Quilt project. Please be sure to pick up the first two parts (McCall's Quilting July/Aug 2012 issue and McCall's Quilting Sept/Oct 2012 issue) if you haven't already done so, here! The Sugar Roses quilt you make could become a treasured gift for someone you love or to keep for yourself.

A heartfelt thanks to my sponsor, AURIfil threads.

Suz-A-Palooza: Week 3 Winners Announced!

Insanely busy morning. I've been thrown off task more times today than I'd like, as I have winners to announce! Living in Mountain Time doesn't fare well for the East coasters, as they've been waiting an extra two hours . . . so very sorry for the delay, my friends.

Can you believe it is already the beginning of the final week of The Palooza?! I sure can't . . . Wow, has this month flown by! Before announcing the winner's of Week 3 prizes, I wanted to add how beneficial it is to participate each week. Almost HALF of this week's prizes are going to people who have participated consistently. Therefore, they've racked up many extra entries. Extra entries equals a higher percentage to win, and it has definitely shown in who this week's prize winners are!
