Today my blog turns 5 years old! Giveaway #5!

You've made it to giveaway #5 in my 5 year blog birthday party, congratulations!

To recap 2010, I started a quiltalong. (I never got all the finishing instructions for the larger quilt, and I feel badly about it. Maybe I will get to that soon.) I joined the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild and it has been so much fun. I participated in doll quilt swaps and a couple of virtual quilting bees. I made a couple of Quilts for Kids. I did some straight line quilting, and didn't really love it. (I learned how to adjust my machine for better results later on though.) I finally finished my insane quilt project, which I had started in 2002, yikes!

I made a left-handed rotary cutting tutorial. I worked on a collaborative baby quilt with some friends. :) I headed up a charity quilt project with KCMQG.

It was a great year... and I can't believe I've been keeping track of it all on my blog for 5 years now.  Thank you for reading along!

The 5th and final blog birthday giveaway is another prize from Sew Inspired of Nauvoo. Barbara is generously offering two fat quarter sets of Luna II fabric from Maywood Studios.
Two winners will each receive 16 fat quarters; each winner will receive a mix of browns, pinks, and blues. 

If you'd like to win one of these prizes, visit the Sew Inspired of Nauvoo website, and come back here and leave a comment telling me your favorite product from their store.

This giveaway is now closed!

For extra chances to win, you can do the following:
  *become a follower of my blog (or let me know if you already are)
  *blog about this giveaway or tweet about it. 
  *And then, leave an additional comment for each of these things.

Make sure you leave me a way to contact you! If you are not sure if your email address comes through with your comments (I get them emailed to me), check out this excellent explanation on the Pleasant Home blog. If you want, you can include your email address in your comment. If I draw a name that has no contact information, I will pick another winner. 

I will draw the two winners on Friday, April 8, at 12:00 p.m. central, and then I will email the winners and post their names here. 

p.s. There's still time to enter Giveaway #3 and Giveaway #4 :)

I'm a follower and I love your stuff does that count extra?

Beth@seasonsofhome said...

You are one of the links in my favorite links page on my blog but I just went and mentioned you in my most recent post.

Elizabeth said...

I can never pick just one favorite, so I'll try to keep it short. I love the blue and tan Amish quilt (3 1/2" squares), the A Girl's Best Friend line of batiks (FABULOUS!) and the Love U Flannels. I was also excited to see that they carry Fairy Frost.

I suppose, though, that I'd have to say that the Luna II in both colorways is my absolute favorite and so I'm totally crossing my fingers!

Great giveaway week! Happy blogiversary! And thank you so much for making it so great!

Elizabeth said...

I'm a follower :D. Thanks to you and Sew Inspired of Nauvoo for this great giveaway. I'm totally drooling over the dots in that line and love the colors.
