A blogiversary and a giveaway too!

Yes, last week was my two year Blogiversary!

Notice the new look? I had a little help, well okay actually more than a little, from my DH on that.  I really appreciated it!  Even got it all together once and then the new header we created disappeared when the photo program we were using decided to quit. Not good. Sometimes the computer is not my friend.  It's worked out now though!        

I can't believe it!  Just two years ago I got the nerve to start my own blog and I began meeting so many new, amazing quilting friends!

Blogging is such a wonderful journey for me.
There are so many amazing, creative, and different quilts and projects of all kinds that you all make and share.

  No matter what type fabric, or what kind of quilt or project, I love seeing it all!  
Chatting and exchanging ideas with so many different quilters from around the world is just awesome!   




I truly appreciate all of my blog friends.  I enjoy visiting your wonderful blogs and finding new ones too.  Learning about your lives and hearing about your ups and downs for the past two years has been a great experience for me.

I appreciate that you leave me kind comments on my posts and look my projects and pictures.  You even read and leave supportive comment on the posts that may not be my best work!  LOL!  Thank you! 


So to celebrate I'm having a giveaway!


There are two Marmalade Moda Candies, perfect to use for this month's Schnibble project if you choose, and some of those amazing Wonder Clips!   I just love those and trust me you can't have too many!  I'm also including a fun little notepad and a notebook that reminded me so much of a quilt that I just couldn't pass it up!

Just be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment about your favorite fabric line of all time!  I'm wondering what you like the best. Just for fun. You can name more than one......I don't want to make this too difficult on you! 

I'll pick a winner after this weekend!

Have a good one!

Congratulations on the second anniversary of your blog. Favorite of all time...difficult. Love Neptune, but not neccessarily with the coral included - just the greens and blues. Love Wee Play for baby quilts. Love Rouenarries for elegant.

Terry said...

Congratulations on your blogiversary! I can't name just one fabric line...there are so many I love! Some of my favorites are Kansas Troubles, Sandy Gervais, Deb Strain, Me and My Sister...just to name a few. Thanks for the giveaway! :0)

Congratulations on blogging for two years! Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful quilts and family adventures I've truly enjoyed reading abou them. I'd say French General...not for the line, but for brick red that I just love and have used over and over.

Happy! Happy Blogiversary!

Congratulations! OH, so many fabrics to play with - Just adore Moda's Little Black Dress and the Windham 'Williamsburg Collections'

Denise in PA said...

Congrats on two years! I agree, blogging is a wonderful journey! My two favorite fabric lines of all time (well, up til now) are Central Park by Kate Spain and Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley!

Handmade by Mai said...

Congratulations, my favorite fabric is Bliss from Bonnie and Camille

Congratulations on your blogoversary! I think it is so cool that people can become good friends over the internet and that it is true even when they meet in person!! I really like your new header. I've been thinking about changing mine for a while now, but it seems like a computer hassle that I don't want right now. I don't know if I have a favorite collection of all time. It has only been recently that I have bought fabric by a "collection." I used to be a Thimbleberries girl, though, and loved it all. Right now I would have to say that the Patriotic line by Primitive Gatherings is my favorite.

Congrats on 2 years of blogging. I like the new header. I thought I was at the wrong place at first.
I will have to say my favorite fabric line is Martinque by 3 sisters for Moda. Because I just finished an applique quilt using it. I hope to post about it this weekend. I need my hubby and daughter to be home at the same time so they can hold it up so I can take pictures.
thanks for a chance to win your very nice giveaway.

Congratulations on 2 years of blogging what a wonderful accomplishment. I don't have a favorite fabric but I do have favorite fabric designers. 1) Joanna Figueroa 2) Edyta Sitar
and 3) Sandy Gervais. It's so nice to have quilty friends even if you've never physically met them, it doesn't make them any less a friend. Happy blogversary! ;-> Toni Anne

Sinta Renee said...

Happy blogiversary to you! Has it really only been 2 years? You seem like an old friend to me:) Thank you for all the great inspiration and sharing on your blog!
I am, of course, a follower already. My fav fabric? Hmm, I think it would have to be Roman Holiday by 3 Sisters. Oh, and Sanctuary by them also.

Izzy said...

Congrats on the blog anniversary! Your blog was one of the very first blogs I discovered and started following and I've enjoyed every minute of it! :-). I would say two of my favourite lines would be Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille and Hometown (I forget who the designer was now though).

Heather A said...

Happy Blogiversary! Fav fabric lines include Neptune, of which I have none. I came too late to the quilting scene to even know about it.

Heather Ross, Far Far Away lines are favourites, as are all things Anna Maria Horner. Also loving the two lines by Parson Grey (aka David Butler). I just ordered Seven Wonders and it is enroute to my mailbox.

And then there is Recess by American Jane - the first designer fabric I ever bought for myself. It's still close to my heart.

Congrats on your blogiversary! Woohoo!

Right now I'm totally in love with Barbara Brackman's Metropolitan Fair line. It is some wonderful repro goodness! Love it!

Thanks for the chance!

Sue said...

Happy 2nd blog anniversary ! I would have to say that my favorite is French General. Thanks for a chance at your give away

Gwen said...

Congratulations on your blog anniversary. Wow-most favorite fabric line of all time? It's too hard to choose; there are so many good ones. I guess I'd narrow it down to Twirl by Me and My Sister, 1934 by Cosmo Cricket and Ruby by Bonnie and Camille.

Joyce said...

Wow, congrats on your anniversary! And thanks for the wonderful giveaway. My faves would be Ruby or Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille!

Gretchen said...

Happy Blogiversary!!! Thanks for being a great source of inspiration and fun in blogland:) One of my absolute favorite fabric lines was Roman Holiday by 3 Sisters for Moda. And any Fig Tree, Kate Spain, and Barbara Brackman ;)

Jamie Lee said...

What a great giveaway! Your header looks great! I know what you mean about the computer not being your friend. I had a giveaway and figured out how to number the comments, then abruptly the numbers went away. It was a real headache!

My favorite all time fabric is Farmdale by Alexander Henry. I also like all of Aneela Hoey's lines.

Needled Mom said...

I like the new look!!! Way to go.

Happy blogaversary too. Congratulations on a job well done. It is a fabulous community full of inspiration and friendly help.

My all time favorite fabric line is Chez Moi. I just wish I had a ton of it still. ;(

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

congratulations on 2 years! Fantastic. My favorite line of all time.... Hmmmm. That's a tough one. I can't decide. I love Me & My Sister Designs for quilts for my Punk and Heather Mulder Peterson's fabric lines for things for myself. It's tough to narrow down. :)

LeAnn H. said...

Yeah for two years blogging!!! Favorite fabric of all time...I don't think I could choose so I'll tell you what I love right now: Hill Farm and Antique Flower by Lecien. Thanks for the fun giveaway chance!

Debbie said...

Congratulations on your Blogiversary! I always come to your blog to see what you are doing and enjoy your quilts. I love Moda but with so many fantastic designers it is hard to choose. I would go with Bliss as I love all the happy colors.
