Sherbet Pips Giveaway!!

Sorry! This giveaway is now closed! In the interest of slimming down some of my fabric stash that is not in use, I have another giveaway for you today. Back in December, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a layer cake of Sherbet Pips. For the same shipping, I could get two. Having no pattern in mind at the time, and being consumed by a full-out Pips frenzy, I thought I should go for it. In the end, it only took one layer cake to make my Pips quilt:

Which means...I have one layer cake left.


Calmmmm down. I am nice and all, but not that nice. I am not giving it ALL away. The Middle Child has insisted she have some pink puppies in her Far Far Away 2 quilt that is next up on my to-do list once her sister's quilt is completed. And I set aside some of the other duplicate squares for a baby quilt I have in mind. But that leaves a stack of swinging girls and scooters and puppies and more that I would like to share. A total of 23 slices of 10" by 10" goodness, or almost 2 yards in total. Enough to make 2 baby quilts or, with some added solids or coordinates, you could manage a nice lap quilt with that! Here's how to enter: 1. Leave me a comment telling me your favorite flavour of sherbet or ice cream. 2. My faithful following peeps can leave a second comment. 3. If you blog about this giveaway, leave a third comment with the link. BONUS: I am going to give one extra entry for every comment that was left on a PREVIOUS post in March (except for the last giveaway post). This is to give a bit more of a reward for all of you who are so sweet and take the time to encourage me along the way. I love hearing from you! Now don't go back and try and comment now, ya scammers! Only comments before today will count ;) You don't need to do anything for this, I will take care of it automatically. Open for international as well as local friends. Winner will be announced on Friday April 1 after noon sometime (CST). This way you can be assured it is not an April Fool's joke ;) Best of luck!

Rainbow sherbet is my favorite sherbet flavor. Thank you so much for sharing some of this fun, fun fabric.

Rachel said...

Yikes! I so love Sherbet Pips (well, who doesn't?). Aren't you generous!

My favourite ice cream flavor is mocha fudge, but lately I've been more into gelato, specifically Bacio flavour. It is delicious. Ahhh, but I gave up sweets for Lent so I'll just have to dream about it until Easter.

Rachel said...

Me again...just popped back to say that I'm a follower.

I'm going to try to blog about this but I'm away from home and have only the iPad so we will see if I can get it to work. I'll be back if/when I post about your wonderful giveaway.

My favorite sherbert is raspberry! Mmm...do they make it in raspberry lemonade? that sounds good :-)

fallingforpieces said...

I can't choose a favorite sherbert flavor, always a toss up between lime and orange, so I like that swirl kind so I get both!

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Leigh said...

I LOVE Haggen Daas Raspberry Sherbet, but of all ice cream-type desserts, sherbet isn't really high on the list. I think Coffee ice cream would be my favorite!

Leigh said...

razberiswrl said...

My all time favorite sherbet is hagen daas mango. My fav ice cream ever is Berried Treasure from Turkey Hill. Cheesecake ice cream with big chunks of cheesecake with a mixed berry swirl ... noooommmmmmnomnomnom. Of course, they haven't put that flavor out in a few years now. :(

You are so generous, Kristie, this is an awesome giveaway!!! I've never really fell in love with a sherbet before, but my local grocery store, Publix, has this frozen yogurt that I'm totally head over heels for - it's chocolate ice cream with ribbons of fudge, Oreos, and something else I can't seem to remember - I think skinny strips of vanilla ice cream or something. It's absolutely wonderful!!!

Favorite sherbert is orange with chocolate chips, but it's hard to find with the chocolate chips pre-mixed in.

Right now it's a complete toss-up for a favorite ice cream, but lately I think Ben & Jerry's Cinnamon Buns is towards the top of my list!
