Blogtoberfest Giveaway…

by Kate on October 21, 2009

Although I am a non start in the Blogtoberfest festivities, I have enjoyed reading the daily updates of those I follow, as well as discovering some new reads.

To show my appreciation, I am holding a Blogtoberfest giveaway.

There is an element of faith involved here peeps…all you need to do is leave a comment telling me what your favourite colour is.

I will draw a winner on Wednesday 28th October and you will receive a bundle from me including fabric, notions etc all in your nominated colour.

Let the giveaway begin!

Thanks for playing along with the giveaway fun. Very sporting of you.


3 Sue October 21, 2009 at 5:08 pm

I'll go with orange for this month though LOL


4 amelieandatticus October 21, 2009 at 5:12 pm

I married RED

My Daughter is RED

It is beautiful!


5 Jo (sparkly green knickers) October 21, 2009 at 5:13 pm

That's a sweet idea, having a colour coordinated giveaway!

Despite my blogger name, I think my favourite at the moment is in the aqua/turquoise range.

Best of luck to everyone!


6 KateHK October 21, 2009 at 5:15 pm

I enjoy your blog and particularly loved how Alfie's quilt worked out. My favourite colour at present is orange! Kate


7 Becky October 21, 2009 at 5:17 pm

I love blue :)


8 Andi October 21, 2009 at 5:35 pm

Red!!! No, pink!! No, purple! Orange!!
Mainly red though.


9 Isa October 21, 2009 at 5:36 pm

If you don't mind sending to Denmark, I'll love to win your giveaway.
My favorite color is a blue grennish sort of thing, seagreen I think is the rigth name :-)
Thank you :-)


10 mrsc1345 October 21, 2009 at 5:41 pm

I have to pick a favorite color?? Okay, then all shades of blue!! I love your blog and would love to win something!!


11 Lara October 21, 2009 at 5:46 pm

Ooh Kate you are just too sweet to organise this very exciting giveaway! Picking just one colour is pretty hard though… I think every quilt should have a titch (or more!) of red in it though! To me the colour red denotes so much! Love, happiness, warmth, richness… which is rather ironic since my colour of choice for clothing is always black. haha! How original! Thanks for responding the other day too! You are so kind!


12 Amy (badskirt) October 21, 2009 at 5:47 pm

My favourite color today is tangerine, I think. though it might be green!

You're generous to join in Blogtober for giveaway fun!


13 Vallee October 21, 2009 at 5:54 pm

I absolutely love anything in the red range from Dark Red to Pink…they are my absolute faves.


14 Cathy October 21, 2009 at 5:56 pm

Oooh Kate, this sounds like fun…but how to choose a favourite colour? I love raspberry and aqua together, as well as purple and green, but I would have to say that orange is at the top of my list!!! xo


15 Cherry Possum October 21, 2009 at 6:00 pm

Loving your orange and blue quilt – fab
My fave colour would have to be orange – it's just so happy, how can you walk by orangeness and not smile!


16 Bianca Jae Makes Stuff October 21, 2009 at 6:01 pm

I have enjoyed reading too. No time to post with all that reading ;)
Very generous Kate. This week blue is my fave probably because of your quilt lol xox


17 Lisa October 21, 2009 at 6:02 pm

I find my favourite colour changes through the year with the seasons and with us starting to spend so much time at the beach and summer slowly starting up, blues are what I seem to wear and dress the kids in and sew with the most.


18 Blueberry Park October 21, 2009 at 7:03 pm

What a fantastic idea! But so difficult to choose…my initial response (as ever) was light blue..but then I'm very inspired by the orange you have shown…maybe it's the blue and orange combo…ok,ok,a decision…orange!


19 gret October 21, 2009 at 7:06 pm

I love turqoise/blues. They are my fave. Nice giveaway too – very thoughtful of you!!


20 Tas October 21, 2009 at 7:08 pm

I have lots of favourite colours but my favouritest favourite (!) is red.


21 Danielle October 21, 2009 at 8:16 pm

I am in love with red at the moment – rich, deep reds in various guises. Thanks for a very generous give-away – you are very kind!


22 Mel October 21, 2009 at 8:22 pm

Lord you seem to be having giveaways alot! I'm still trying to figure out something of mine of worth to giveaway – I feel so slack!

24 humel October 21, 2009 at 8:29 pm

39 Bronwyn October 21, 2009 at 10:16 pm

Thanks Kate! How do you pick a favourite child?? Okay, you don't – but a favourite colour – can't stop at one, so aqua, coral pink, raspberry red and navy blue would have to be top of the list for me.


40 Jodie October 21, 2009 at 10:17 pm

Thanks for being so kind and sharing your goodies. I would have to say that today my favorite would be aqua. Love that it is always bright and cheery. Thanks again!

44 Marls October 21, 2009 at 10:42 pm

It is hard to pick one colour that is a favourite when it comes to quilts but I think I would jave to say blue.


45 Bethany October 21, 2009 at 11:12 pm

I love blues and greens. My favorite is probably blue, but it is always so hard to choose! Thanks for the great giveaway.


46 angela October 21, 2009 at 11:15 pm

Oooh – a fun mystery! I love green, that's the happiest color for me (or perhaps golden yellow when I've been Twilighting)!


47 nicolette October 21, 2009 at 11:39 pm

My favourite colours change with the seasons, but I’m overall a blue and orange lover.

Thanks for hosting a lovely give-away and a chance to win something!!

58 Meg October 22, 2009 at 1:59 am

How cool! I'm a blue/aqua girl, myself. :)


59 Doina October 22, 2009 at 2:02 am

I like the things you have made and show on your blog! Fantastic idea!


60 urbancrunch October 22, 2009 at 2:47 am

I don't declare favorites, for anything, because ultimately I'm commitment-phobic.
With that said, I'm loving orange right now!!


61 sallgood October 22, 2009 at 3:15 am

My current favorite color is Apple Green. And every other green. (But I'm so influenced by the seasons, so all the rich mustards and golds and oranges are really speaking to me at the moment, especially as I look out the window!)


62 NiCoLe October 22, 2009 at 3:19 am

I too have a hard time narrowing down my colour preference. I adore all colours and combos. I think I would have to say that Green is my all time favourite though.


63 izzy inspired October 22, 2009 at 3:41 am

Oh how fun….pink! I have been on a pink kick for three years now, ever since I found out I was pregnant with a girl. After only having sons for 10 years, the change was a exciting one.


64 ircabbit October 22, 2009 at 3:41 am

I love surprises… and my favorite color is green. :)


65 katrina October 22, 2009 at 4:08 am

My favourite colour is definitely blue! Although I'm trying to branch out in my crafting, since I rarely ever pick the warmer colours.


66 The Calico Cat October 22, 2009 at 4:19 am

If I have to choose one – blue. (I like all colors.)


67 wishes, true and kind October 22, 2009 at 4:58 am

My favorite color is blue :)



68 euphoria October 22, 2009 at 5:49 am

My latest quilt in my head will actually be for me.

A pink and gray one.

So, as of late, pink is my favorite with lime green as a close back up!

Ooh, a mystery giveaway! I know you've heard this, but boy is it hard to pick one color. I'm going with red, even if purple is gonna be all mad at me (Purple is not easygoing in the least, she is fickle and spiteful and I will love her always. Red, now, she's a real sport.)


126 Nova October 24, 2009 at 9:17 am



127 Amanda October 24, 2009 at 10:14 am
