I Couldn't Wait Any Longer! (and a GIVEAWAY!)

So recently I have had a small string of bad luck.  Car problems, family health issues, and several hits to my budget had started to get me feeling down.  I found myself longing for the sparkle and warmth of the holiday season, and so I set out my decorations early as a little pick-me-up!

A few weeks ago I got a Christmas wallhanging back from the quilter.  I LOVE IT!  She did such a fun all-over holly design, and it looks great with the fabrics in the quilt.  This is a top (and backing if I'm being honest) that I've had waiting to be finished for a couple of years now!  I love the fabric with the Cardinals and Winterberry Holly mixed with the words love, hope, peace and joy.  It is exactly the thing I needed to brighten my days!

Putting my decorations out was exactly what I needed to lift my mood, and even though it's not yet Christmas, I'd like to offer one of you something happy and fun as well!

So onto the giveaway details!  Up for grabs are the leftovers from my quilt!  This includes a full center panel (the panel is just larger than a fat quarter).  I also am throwing in the leftovers from the backing (most of the neutral fabric below).  There is enough here to make something fun for Christmas, and there's even time to get it done before the holidays get here!


There are many ways to win an entry for this giveaway!

1. One entry for following my blog and leaving a comment (you must be a follower to win).
2. Tweeting a link to this giveaway with the tag #QuiltedMittenXmas
3. Liking The Quilted Mitten on Facebook
4. Pinning a picture of my Christmas Quilt on Pinterest.

This should be a lot of fun! 

The giveaway will remain open through Friday of next week (Black Friday) and will close at midnight.  I will compile all the entries into a master list, and use a random number generator to pick the winner! 

All the best!
