Queue the choir and the band, time to sing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little space on the internets! It seems like just yesterday I was contemplating a name, contemplating whether or not to even attempt it and generally questioning my sanity for the thought of starting a blog :) I'm SO glad I did!! I have made so many quilty friends all over the globe, who knew?!?! I definitely did not when I hit publish on my first post! It all started as a way to keep my mom up to date on what I was doing. It turned into a wonderful community of very supportive quilters! It's been an amazing year! Because it is the end of the year, and the blogs birthday, I am going to do a 2014 wrap up with the quilts I finished this year.
At the end of the picture show (if you want to read more about the quilt, just click on the picture) there will be pictures of the fabulous fabric I am giving away to not one, not two BUT THREE of my lucky followers! Yes, this giveaway is for my followers (current and new are always welcome!). I never imagined at the start that I would get comments much less followers!! LOL This birthday celebration is about you my dear friends and your support. Honestly, if I had not found such a wonderful community just waiting for me to join, I likely would not have continued blogging. So thank you for hanging with me through a few rants, many 'design elements' (those oops moments that sometimes turn into wonderful aha moments) and quilty math issues! :)
First, here is a recap of 2014. I was quite amazed at the number of finishes I accomplished this year! I had a pretty unproductive fall but obviously made up for that in the beginning half of the year :) A total of 17 completed quilts and one finished flimsy for the QOV block drive Kevin The Quilter ran at the beginning of the year. Enjoy the pictures and don't forget to check out the giveaway!
Whew! That was a busy year :) It's been fun looking back at my posts and revisiting the making of all of these quilts. I find that making a quilt is kind of like birthing. . . in about a week (longer for C-Section, I know this from personal experience) all the pain is forgotten ;)
On to the giveaway!! I am giving away the following fabric bundles to three people that will be randomly drawn.
First up, Legacy by Angela Walters for Art Gallery. This is a 9 piece fat quarter bundle in topaz, this is not my picture ;)
Next is a 15 piece fat quarter bundle from Free Spirit. The tag says "Annette Tatum - Assorted." This is my picture taken in the dark. . . I'll update this when it gets lighter outside ;)
And last, but certainly NOT least, a five piece fat quarter bundle of Citrus Tattersall from Another Point of View for Windham.
So here's the scoop. The giveaway is open to international entrants. The only 'condition' for entering is that you must be a follower of my blog. Leave a comment below indicating how you follow and consider yourself entered! :) If you have a preference of which bundle you most would love to have, let me know, maybe there will be three people drawn with three different choices. . . it could happen! The giveaway will close at midnight EST January 6, 2015 and I will announce the winners on January 7th!
Thank you, my friends, for a most wonderful first year in blogland!
Linking up to DWM and Let's Bee Social and Finish it up Friday :) If you haven't been, go check out what everyone else is doing! :)
Until next time, keep on quilting!!
