One year (plus a week) & a giveaway

Hi friends. Aren’t blogiversarys fun?
So let’s have a little party.

Inspired by the fall colors I’ve got this happy little bundle of
Amy Butler Fat Quarters for some lucky winner.

And while I was cutting the FQ’s I thought,
why not have two bundles and two winners.
So let’s do it.

Since this is a pretty no frills giveaway, let’s just do it the easy way.
One comment, one entry.

Comments close October 12 at midnight MST.

Thanks for coming. This bloggy adventure has been fun. I will admit that sometimes I wonder why in the world I’m doing this – the time it takes me away from my sewing machine, let alone the laundry and the dirty kitchen floor. But, I’ve loved the connections I’ve made with so many great women. Thank you for being out there and for the kind encouragement you’ve given. I wish I had an Amy Butler [or your favorite fabric designer] bundle for all of you.

PS Don’t forget the Blogger’s Quilt Festival this weekend over at Park City Girl. It was so much fun last spring. Not sure what quilt I’m going to post as I haven’t sewn anything new for a couple of months. Might be pulling something from the archives. Can’t wait to see what other people share!

    Hi! I am glad you are here, blogging away. I have been reading your blog for quite a while now; I wish I could remember what brought me here, but I enjoy your thoughts and your creativity in quilting!

  23. says

    I love the fall colours too – though in the southern hemisphere we&#39;re just moving into spring, so I could be super organised to have something ready for next fall (we call it autumn!)<br /><br />thanks, janelockrey(at)gmail(dot)com

  27. says

    Congrats on your bloggiversary! <br /><br />(My word verification is imaccin – kinda like I&#39;m making a …. you know how sometimes people want you to say what you would do with the fabric if you won… never mind it&#39;s late!)

  28. says

    Hi Amy, beautiful fabrics you&#39;re giving away, I love the warm colours you chose!<br />Ah, the question of why we blog… for me, it&#39;s getting satisfaction out of fellow quilters (who know what they&#39;re talking about) praising my work, encouraging me to keep going when a quilt doesn&#39;t work out and teaching me new tricks!<br />Look forward to your next post!<br /><br />Cheers,<br />

  29. says

    Amy,<br />Yay for giveaways! <br />Thanks for your comments and emails about my quilting dilemma. You are most kind for responding. I&#39;ll keep you posted on the finished quilt and will hopefully stop by your shop to meet you for real.<br />Hannah

    I can&#39;t harldy believe you&#39;ve only been blogging for a year. When I first started reading your blog last spring, for some reason I thought you&#39;d been blogging for a long time. I enjoy reading your blog and have been inspired by so many of your projects. I&#39;m currently on baby quilts 4 and 5 and have made several tote bags. I think my gifts this year have been fantastic. Thanks!

  31. emily says

  32. says

    Lucky me, came over this blog just in time to have an entry in this giveaway. I love to see the colours you use in your works. And I certainly will come back to you again.

  33. says

    I have to agree with you – sometimes I wonder why I&#39;m sitting at this computer when I should be sitting at my machine! The laundry can wait!! But it has been wonderful for me too, to be able to meet such great people from all over the world and create friendships that never would have happened without this blog world. It IS a great thing!<br />Happy Blogiversary!!

  34. says

    Whew, I just about missed this! I&#39;ve been out and about way too much! I&#39;ve enjoyed reading your blog for quite some time now. Just a big THANKS!
