It's Leap Day!

Leap Day Giveaway
 
This is going to be short and sweet, I know you just want to get to entering for the giveaway anyway so here goes:
 
I make this starch, it is wonderful stuff! I can't claim to be the mastermind behind it because someone else gave the recipe to me. I have just embraced it with both hands and think it is sent straight from the fabric deities themselves!  So, here is a 9 oz bottle of concentrated starch.  You will need to add distilled water to it and put it in your favorite spray bottle.  I have been making it for a while and I'm pretty sure I will never use anything else.
 
 
 
In addition to the starch, I will also include a $25 gift certificate for quilting. Use it for any quilting design or size you want. Batting and thread and shipping is not included in the discount.  If you win, we can work out the details then.
 
So, leave a comment and I will pick a winner on Thursday monring.  Have fun hopping!

This is cool. I've never used starch. LOL, can you believe it?!!! I've been told by many people that once you start using, you will never stop because it makes piecing so much better.
