title pic A Pattern Giveaway & a “Sound of Music” Quiz!

Posted by Edelweiss Patterns on October 19, 2014

Hello, Readers!

I feel like celebrating – cheers!” – Baroness Schraeder

To celebrate passing 1,000 Facebook fans of Edelweiss Patterns, I am holding a pattern giveaway here on the blog for one “Liesl’s Dancing Dress” pattern!  When I first started drafting the Sound of Music inspired dresses years ago, I had no idea that so many other Sound of Music fans would find Edelweiss Patterns and share their enthusiasm for the classic movie’s costumes with me.  It has been a joy to work on the various patterns over the last few years, and I’m excited to hold a giveaway this week!  (Oh, and please be sure to head over to our Facebook page and “like” it if you haven’t already.)


1. In order to enter the giveaway drawing, simply share the link to this giveaway or to the Liesl’s dress pattern on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest, and leave a comment below with a link to the post you shared!  (One entry per social media account.)

2. The other way you can enter this giveaway is to answer all the questions to this epic “Sound of Music Trivia Quiz” (below) correctly!   If you get all eight questions right on the first try, do leave an additional comment below with your name stating that you got all the answers correct.  (I can see on my end who passed the quiz, so no cheaters will slip through the cracks. ;))

It is worth noting that this Sound of Music quiz is not for the faint of heart.  I am rather expert on the subject, as I can quote the entire film from memory, complete with the songs, accents, and dances… so don’t feel badly if you don’t know all the answers!  Since I have written this quiz myself, I kindly ask that you not copy the questions onto any other blog, website, or Sound of Music fan site.  (All content on this blog is copyright by Edelweiss Patterns and may not be reproduced.)  After the giveaway has ended next week, I will try to give a detailed explanation of each question listed on the quiz.  So without further ado, let the games begin!


Which one of the following pink items was not mentioned in the film?


 Pattern Giveaway Details: 

 To be eligible for the giveaway, you must live in the United States.  The giveaway will end on October 26, 2014, at midnight (Pacific Standard Time).  One (1) winner will be randomly selected from the entries, and the winner will be listed in this blog post the following day.  If one week after we have contacted the winner for a mailing address, we still have not received a response, the first winner will become ineligible and a new winner will be selected and notified.  

So long, farewell!
