Hands2Help - Meet The Sponsors!!

Hi, all!

I hope you all are enjoying working on (or like me, thinking about working on) your H2H quilts!  I've been really excited to see some quilts in progress cropping up in the blogosphere - they look wonderful!!

And all of your hard work should be rewarded - that's where our sponsors come in!  I'm still looking for more sponsors, but I want to give you an idea of some of the giveaways that will be available at the end of the Challenge for those of you who complete quilts...

First of all, let me tell you about some of our past and current H2Hers who have stepped up and offered giveaway items...

Vicki of Dotty Jane Quilting and Dyeing is providing 
some of her beautiful hand-dyed fabrics.

Sharon of Vrooman's Quilts is chipping in with 
a Fellowship jelly roll and an Ooh La La jelly roll.

Emily of Em's Scrap Bag is providing some of her quilt patterns.

Diane of DEW Quilting has offered 
a Terrain layer cake, and two sets of an Oasis jelly roll with some coordinating fabric!

Miki of Miki's Fabric Creations has joined in the giving with a $35 gift certificate from The Old Country Store in Pennsylvania!

Sue of Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures is offering Sinta Borland's Blogger's Choice fat quarter bundle!

Terri of QuiltNCards has donated five beautiful batik fat quarters!

Annie of Annie's Ruby Slipperz is offering three 
great quilting books, a $30 gift certificate to The Fat Quarter Shop, and a $30 gift certificate to Hawthorne Threads!

An anonymous donor has provided a copy of Angela Walters' book, Free-Motion Quilting!

Kathleen Gansert of Katie's Salt Marsh Path
have agreed to sponsor, but we don't know what just yet!

It makes me happy to see participants step up to help promote the Challenge, whether by posting the button, blogging about it, or chipping in with giveaway items.  You guys are awesome!!

And now for our business sponsors...

Kate Spain, who blogs over at The Drawing Board, has donated four ten-fat quarter sets of Verna fabric!!

Kate Conklin, who blogs over at Kate Conklin Designs, is offering four of her PDF patterns!

Amy Smart, who blogs at Diary of a Quilter, is offering some of her patterns!

Hawthorne Threads is giving two $25 gift certificates and fabric to be named closer to the end of the challenge!

Green Fairy Quilts is offering fabric to be named closer to the end of the challenge!

The Fat Quarter Shop is chiming in with three $25 gift certificates!

Fabrics N Quilts is giving two $25 gift certificates!

1 Choice 4 Quilting is giving a Lario charm pack and a PB&J charm pack!

Be sure and check out these great shops and give them your business - they are very generous to help sponsor the Challenge and it's the least we can do!!

Isn't that an awesome array of giveaway goodies?  And I'm still trying to find more stuff for you awesome people who will be helping give so many folks a quilt-y hug!!  I'm hoping to be able to do what we did last year - everyone who participated in the Challenge received a giveaway item - but we have more participants this year, so it may be a bit harder.  Wish me luck!!
