2 in 1 Giveway!

I have a two part giveaway.

First, I'm going to giveaway a $20 gift certificate to Hancock's of Paducah! Yes, you read that correctly. Since I have to go back online and order an important fabric I forgot, I'm going to spread the spending wealth! This will be sent from Hancock's directly to the winner.
The second giveaway, the Baby Kisses by Jeanne Coverdale pattern only. There is no fabric included with this pattern but the pattern itself would be great for a memory quilt or for fussy cut squares to highlight a fabric. I will be sending this directly to the winner

The rules for the first contest: Comment to this post answering the 6 questions below. The person who correctly answers most or all of the questions will win. If there is a tie, I will draw the winning name out of a hat from those who tied.
The rules for the second contest: answer the questions as for the first comment, that's 1 entry. Post about this contest, another entry (be sure to tell me you did this). Become a follower, or state you are already a follower, another entry.

The giveaway will run until 11:59pm CT on Sunday, Februrary 28.

Background: I finished my Valentine's table runners. For the square runner, I had a few errors. For each picture below showing the error, one of the following answers is correct (note, some answers will be the same and some different.) So the answers to choose from, did I, (a) rip it out and fix the mistake, (b) not do a darn thing about it or (c) find a way to hide it in the final product?




(4) I ran out of bobbin thread on this last heart. Each of the other 3 hearts have one last small heart in the middle, in this case, "did I correct it" means did I add more bobbin thread and finish out the final heart in the middle?

(5) Here is an example of one of two little hearts flanking the big shadowed heart on one side. The "did I correct it" here means, did I add flanking hearts to each of the other three sides, the "did I find another way" means did I remove the flanking hearts, and "did I not do a darn thing" well, means the same.

What color binding did I use? Light Pink, Hot Pink, Black or the leftover striped fabric.

GOOD LUCK!!! (and remember to be sure I can contact you when you leave your comment.)

Note: Since this post was originally a part of a previous post and I've now seperated it, I pulled the comments myself and put them in the comment field instead of requiring commentors restate their own comments.

You are tooo funny!!!

I think you just ripped out the bad part, not all and just fixed that. I think that you put more thread in your machine and did the heart. I think you did your binding in pink. Cant remember the other I bad? Some things you can just conceal.

Not an entry, just had to comment on how pretty this quilt is. Still hope to get to quilting status one day. Been slowly checking in on blogs and finally got by your neck of the woods. Hope you did good on your contest with your airplane quilt. It was darling.
