Celebrating QM's 100 Blocks new issue and videos with a "Cutting Room Floor" Giveaway


Yeah, that's me - grainy, fuzzy, and with questionable shadowing effects, but hey, my 11 year old videographer was the best I could do. Plus she kept laughing at me.

You may have heard by now there's a blog tour going on next week to celebrate Quiltmaker Magazine's 100 Blocks Volume 10 hitting the stands. If you haven't heard, it means you haven't seen all of the videos on you tube. When you are done entering this giveaway, go right ahead a watch a few.

When we were asked to film a short video to advertise the blog tour, we were also asked to use our creativity and personality, and that big old button left over from when I was included in Volume 8 became part of my schtick. However, as I am wont to do, my schtick went on too long, and the part where it became clear why I had it on ended up on the cutting room floor. To be honest, I was a bit sad about that for a few minutes. Then I had a brilliant idea - why not make an extra giveaway out of it?

I knew you'd like that idea. Here's hoping QM does too! More marketing is always a good thing, right?

So, here's the thing. Watch the video. Make a guess, either in a comment here, or on the pinned post at the top of my EPQD facebook page, stating why you think I am wearing that button, which is explained in the edited portion of the video (The Cutting Room Floor part). (Hint - try to think like me. I know, that's a scary place you just went to. But in other words, a little out of the box.)

Contest is open until November 16 at noon. Sometime in the afternoon, I will announce the winner, which will be the person who gets closest to why I decided to wear the button in the video, and she/he will receive a copy of QM's 100 Blocks Volume 10 and the scraps from the baby sized quilt (off the cutting room floor, see what I did there?) I am making for the blog tour highlighting my block. They are actually pretty cool fabrics and will be great in a small project.

Photo: The Quiltmaker magazine 100 Blocks Volume 10 blog tour is next week. I just might be whipping something up special for you in preparation.
Like I said, they are cool.
 Perhaps more exciting, I will at that time post the original video in its entirety and we can see how close the winner actually came. If they use my actual words I am going to be actually dumbfounded.

Don't think too hard. Just think like me. Be creative. Say whatever you want, because you know I of all people could never be horrified by any idea you might have.

 Enter in a comment here on this blog post, or on my facebook page where the post with comments is pinned to the top. Have fun! Be creative! Win a copy of 100 Blocks and my floor dregs! What could be better?

Could it be that you dribbled tooth paste on your black shirt? That would happen to me, especially when I'm expected somewhere in a hurry. Big Button to the rescue!

Sarah said...

Because just black is boring and you wanted a (big) splash of color by your face! sarah@forrussia.org

Linda Heminway said...

Well, I went to full screen mode to see what the button had to say on it. I would guess that you were proud that your block is in that book and that they probably gave you that pin?
You did a find job by the way. : )

Lisa Marie said...

A slimming black shirt plus an unusually large button and suddenly you're a supermodel! Could that be the reason? ps. you're looking waif-like, maybe you should have some cake.

Proud to be in the magazine

barbara woods said...

Love those magizines

Angie said...

My guess is oatmeal on the shirt, but if I were you, I'd give it to Lisa Marie for the "waif-like" comment and the suggestion that you eat cake!

Lisa E said...

My best guesses are that the button is covering up a big stain or a hole!! Or perhaps the pin is sticking you in the chest so that you won't be tempted to laugh as your videographer laughs at you.

I am pretty sure you spilled something on it. I just don't know what it was. Something light on that black sweater. Oh.......bird poop! LOL. But I would have certainly changed the shirt since you are home.....right?
