100 Followers and a Giveaway!

A milestone has been reached! Officially, there are 100 followers signed up to receive postings of my blog. How awesome! I love blogging and following blogs myself. Thrilled that all of you are following my posts. Thank you for becoming my blogging friends! Thank you, Sue of Alderwood Quilts  for commenting on  a post that you were officially the 100th follower. Since that time, I've been thinking of doing another giveaway. These past days as I've been sorting in my sewing palace, I've been looking for treasures that I am willing to share. I've been super lucky with giveaways:) I so appreciate the bloggers and shops who have so generously shared their goodies with me. I loved the concept from the book and movie of Paying It Forward . (If you haven't read the book, it's one I highly recommend) Here goes my attempt to pay it forward.


Charm Packs


Three charm packs of Apron Springs by Moda, '30's prints.
Three charm packs of Quilt Pink ( breast cancer awareness) - all charms are pink and white



Three charm packs of Hydrangea Garden by Lakehouse Dry Goods.

I know there are only 2 charm packs in each photo, but I do have 3 of each to share. I love all three of these fabric lines, but after several years on the shelf, they deserve to become quilts:) There will be 3 winners. Each winner will receive 3 charm packs of one fabric line.

How to enter the giveaway
1. Post a comment on this blog post. Tell me something about you my blogging friends. Anything you'd like to share. Also,please indicate which charm pack that you would like to win. This equals one entry.

2. For a second entry, follow my blog. Please tell me in a separate post that you are already a follower, a new follower or that you follow me in Google Reader or some other blog reader.

3. I love meeting new blogging friends and welcome new visitors. Please blog about my giveaway, that will add another chance to win.

I will be away from Thursday to Sunday. (quilting retreat!!!)  Let's have the giveaway end Sunday, September 19th at 6:00 pm Eastern time.  I'll notify the  3 winners on Monday, September 20th.

Thanks again for reading and following my blog! Your friendship and comments have enriched my life.

Mimi said...

Oh, I do so love reading your blog! I've been so busy with things of late, I haven't been doing much blogging myself, but am ready to start again very soon.

I am retiring on November 30, 2010 and am SOOOoooooo looking forward to it. I haven't been finding the time to quilt much lately, but also have MANY UFO's to be finished and lots of new projects to begin.

If I would happen to be one of your lucky winners, I would LOVE to have the Hydrangae Garden by Lakehouse Dry Goods.

Mimi said...

Ok, now on to the next phase and my SECOND chance to win!

I have been a follower of your blog for a long time.

This time, please put me in for the Quilt Pink charms!

Thanks so much for the chance(s). Have a wonderful time at your quilting retreat. (ALSO something I want to do when I am retired.)

HuckleberryKim said...

I just happened upon your blog. Wow! I'm sure glad I did. I love it. You have so many great ideas and I look forward to the book ideas as well.

I would consider myself very lucky to win the Hydrangae Garden by Lakehouse. Thank you for a great giveaway!

HuckleberryKim said...

I'm a new follower from Google Reader. Very lovely blog. We share a lot of the same interests. I have two dogs, one female shorkie (Shih Tzu/Yorkie)and one male boxer. I have been quilting for about 5 years now.

What an awesome milestone! Something you don't already know about me is that I used to teach martial arts in Lilburn (I earned two black belts in 1994). Karmen

GerryART said...

Becky, we first met last Spring when you participated in My Very First Giveaway.
When I first began blogging in June of 2007 I was mainly quilting and making art dolls. Since then I have knit many pairs of sox and have crocheted like crazy.
I guess I am not one to keep to any one interest.
I would love to be able to take part in your giveaway celebrating you 100 followers & Beyond.
I am particularly partial to Hydrangea Garden and it's lovely shades of blue.
Hugs,
Gerry

GerryART said...

I've been Following your blog since last Spring, Becky, and enjoy each of your posts.
Hugs,
Gerry

scottylover said...

Wonderful give away! Let's see, something about me...The nephew that I made my first quilt for turns 18 today! Wow! I've been quilting for 18 years! His quilt was one my mom started and I finished it after she passed away. She did the embroidery and I did the quilting. :)

Thanks for the chance to win. I'd love any of the charms!

I am a happy follower! I love hydrangeas and my second fave is 30's. Have fun at your retreat! :-)

quiltmom said...

Hi Becky,
It is nice to meet you- I was looking at someone else's blog list and saw your nom de plume for your blog and had to check it out.
I love the movie Pay it Forward- I am a kindergarten teacher really enjoyed the story -even with the sad ending.
I love all three charm packs but I think I like the hydrangea one best- however your winners will love whichever one they could win..I know that I would.

I've never bought or used a charm pack. Perhaps it's time I did so...I'd love to win any of them but the hydrangea is my favorite.

Jan said...

When I win, I'd love either Apron Strings or Hydrangea. How's that for confidence!

Jan said...

Hi Becky,
Congrats on 100 + followers. Love your charm(ing) giveaway. I really like the Apron Strings Charms. As you know, we recently moved into a new(er) home. I've been a quilter for about 25 years. Thanks for including me in your sweet giveaway :-)

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

And I am a long time follower of your blog :-D

Marcia said...

Thank you for this giveaway. I'm willing to win any of the charm sets as have gifts to make. My personal favorite is the Hydrangea Garden set. Little something: I recently began making quilts beginning to finish. My mother told me that at about age 5 she would give me a needle and yarn and let me "quilt" on the corners of a quilt. I used to trace her templates on fabric and cut them out with scissors. Now, we are "modern" with rotary cutters and rulers.

Marcia said...

I now follow your blog.

Melinda said...

I enjoy reading your blog. I see on your blog list you read my sister's blog (Robin Quilts etc) as well as her partners (Wackywoman). Congratulations on 100 followers.

Hi Becky,
I have used the Quilt Pink charms in a quilt for my oldest granddaughter, after she found them in my closet. Added purples, made all half-square triangles, and assembled in the barnraising setting. I would love to win the Apron Strings, since my 2nd granddaughter is named Chloe.
Geaux Tigers! Geaux Saints!
Thanks!

Hi, I just found your blog. I can't think of a single color that I don't like since I began quilting almost 4 years ago. I have just fallen in love with all colors, although purple is still my favorite. I also love pink, so I would be interested in the Quilt Pink charms. I just finished piecing a quilt I call Pink Dreams. I do enjoy working with that color. Winona

I learned of your blog from So many quilts, so little time - a fairly new blog from my all-time favorite quilt teacher. My first retirment project was to relocate to Texas, secondly, I learned to quilt. Both changed my life! Your Blog list is fascinating. My favorite of the charm packs is Hydrangea Garden.

Sewgirl said...

I would love any of the charm packs. I have made several quilts with charm packs, alternating 2 colors of sashing around the light/dark prints, and they have all turned out really nice. I make them and give them to friends who have been diagnosed with cancer and are undergoing chemo...they help keep them warm during the chemo treatments.
thanks for the giveaway!

Mystica said...

All of the charm packs are wonderful - would love any of them.

I enjoy reading your blog and seeing all the neat things you have made. I just retired at the end of this past school year from teaching Family and Consumer Sciences. I babysit every other week day for my son and his wife. My granddaughter is almost 4 months old, and I am in heaven!
I like all the charm packs and would love any of them.
Congratulations on your milestone.

Jan in TN said...

I really enjoy reading your blog. I have always loved sewing of any kind and took up quilting about 5 years ago. I think the idea of putting out the charm packs has been great...less time cutting material and a chance to see all the patterns in one line. Thanks for the chance to win a giveway. My favorite is the Hydrangea Garden.

Well hello. I'm halfway through my first ever quilt which I'm sewing for my boy (his 21st is at the end of this year) and I've been searching on the internet for fabric for my next project. I've decided on the Lakehouse Hydrangea Garden but of course its 2011 now and you must have already have done the Hydrangea giveaway. What rotten luck! If only I'd started quilting last year! hahaha.
Anyway, if anyone knows of any of the Lakehouse Hydrangea Garden fat quarters or charm packs or anything else in the mauve/blue and pink ranges could you post a comment?
I've got some of the panels now but am searching for charm packs and more of the backing.
I love your blog - it is seriously inspiring.

Isnt it lovely how so many women can connect across the world to talk about quilting??
