Strange sense of humor giveaway for Micheles Blog Hop Party

December 9, 2012

I had intended to give this as a gift for the guild, but the last minute before the holiday gift exchange, I chickened out.

So I have an extra ‘holiday gift’ to share with you!

Almost immediately after becoming a quilt blogger, I registered with Quilting Gallery and even wrote a guest post on Michele’s site about becoming a quilt blogger & podcaster, and about why I so loved to listen to quilting podcasts!

Quilting Gallery is having a birthday, and I’d like to help you celebrate it with a smile.

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

Presenting your very own unopened copy of…

The Bitchy Stitcher’s QSMASBC.

That stands for quilts shirtless man and spicy burrito calendar.

The proceeds from this calendar go to her brother’s family, who he has been fighting brain cancer and Megan (the bitchy stitcher), has been struggling with his health for a very long time ….

While some of the images are more risquΓ© than others, the calendar is mostly just a bunch of guys without shirts, quilts, and of course Burritos.

Here are some of the pictures you may find in the calendar. Some of my favorites.

qsmasbc 2013 front

These guys also make it into the middle of the calendar – June

qsmasbc 2013 January

January, a kilt and a horse, in addition to the quilt & burrito. Swoon.

qsmasbc 2013 May

May – even the statue gets its own quilt. And gets to enjoy the burrito.

Now I can’t guarantee there are months that won’t make you *giggle* or *blush* or *swoon*. That’s a chance you’re taking with this giveaway.
