Trivia Tuesdays – Wheel of Fortune

11 Jan

It is time for Quilt Trivia Tuesday again! I hope you are enjoying this as much as I am. This week we are going to play a static form of “Wheel of Fortune”. Each word has a few letters filled in and each word is sewing related work.  All you have to do is email the correct answers to contest @ sewflakesfabrics (dot) com. Everyone who has all the answers correct will be entered into a drawing.

Wheel of Fortune:

*The hyphen (“-”) represents a space between words.*

1.)  _ _ t t _ _ g   -  m _ t

2.)  _ e _ v _ g e

3.)  d i _ e _ t i _ _ a l  -  p _ i _ t

4.)   _ a _ f   -  s _ _ a r e   –   _ r _ a _ g _ e

5.)  _ i_ s  -  _ i nd i n _

6.)  f a _  -  q _ a _ t e _

7.)  _ i n  -  c _ s _ in

8.)  s _ i s s _ _ s

9.)  p _ t t _ r _

When you email me be sure to include the word number. Please do not leave your answers in the comment section.  All responses need to be sent by 12:00pm (Central Time) Thursday, January 13, 2011. I will draw a name from all the correct responses and announce a winner before the end of the business day.

*Update: I will be out of town for a quilt show on Thursday so whenever I get back to the hotel in the evening is when the winner will be selected. That means you will have extra time to submit your answers.

This week our winner will receive 6 spools of Aurifil variegated thread.  These threads are my personal favorites for fun projects like tote bags, aprons, clothing, and other accessories. I happen to go through the pink the quickest, go figure, but I really like the dark blue one as well. Either way, all of them are beautiful, and I hope you have a chance to try them!

Thanks for participating!
