Red, White and Blue Giveaway!

A week or so ago, I wrote about our recent trip to Washington, D.C.  We invited our oldest son and his family to come with us because his children are the perfect ages for learning about our country.  


They've been studying American history and will have more of it in high school.  Besides, it's also a great way to instill a little national pride in our grandchildren, which is really important to our family.  


Between our trip to D.C. and July Fourth about to occur, I had the idea to giveaway a pack of red and blue fabrics.  My assumption, of course, is that the winner will add some white fabrics to the mix, but that is completely up to whomever wins.


Included in the pack of fabrics is 40 die cut 4 1/2 inch squares--20 in red and 20 in blue.  I cut them today from fabrics in stash using my Accuquilt Studio.  It took only a little while to cut all 40 squares.


The question, of course, is what do you do for a chance to win?  Let's make it easy and fun with only two rules:


1. be a follower or become one.


2. leave a comment telling how your family celebrates the Fourth of July.  


In a few days I'll tell you how you can earn extra chances to win, so come back and check it out.  I'd also appreciate if my bloggy friends helped to get the word out.

And since July 4th is right around the corner, I'll draw the winner on June 27.  That will give me a week to get the fabrics to the winner.
This giveaway is open to anyone living in the United States and to any U.S. citizen living our of the country since it's meant to celebrate our Independence Day.  Unfortunately that does eliminate some folks, but we'll have another giveaway soon that will be open to everyone.

Lovely fabrics! I have not been to D.C., but now that we are on the East coast, I hope we can get there before too long!

We always cook out on July 4 and then watch fireworks from our front porch (too crazy to try to go the city's fireworks display area). I like actually being at home because we have three dogs who get anxious when fireworks go off and I know they feel calmer when we're home.

Thanks for the chance,

I cant belive it will be the 4th so quickly. The family and I do not do a lot. kids like fireworks so we buy and light a few of those. Normaly we grill up some burgers on the grill.

I am a new follower! My sister's birthday is on the 4th, so we used to always celebrate her birthday in a big way! She is turning 21 this year. Now, in addition, my daughter's birthday is the 3rd. So we have that to celebrate as well! (She'll be two this year!)

My family always makes the trip to Addison. They do a huge parade and a fireworks show. The best part is a certain radio station plays music to sync with the fireworks. No matter how old I get, I always feel like a kid on the 4th of July!

My family always gathers together to watch the "Thunder In The Valley" fireworks show that is synced up with the local radio station. It's really neat to watch the fireworks go off and be in sync with the music. Kicking back in a lawn chair, surrounded by loved ones, cool summer nights, with a old fashioned pop in a glass bottle...that's the life. :)
