When I started blogging, it was just a means to journal my 2010 resolution to quilt at least 20 minutes a day. Little did I know how it would change my life, and not just from a quilting perspective.
I've already gushed about meeting new friends, discovering new fabrics and an entirely new (to me) global community of quilters, so I won't do it again (even though I said I would).
What I will do, however, is invite you to celebrate with me by hosting a giveaway. One lucky person will win a Fat* Quarter of each of these lovely fabrics. Our home is pet- and smoke-free.
*the purple fabric has those stripes printed on the bias and it would make a terrific binding. I could make it a regular quarter-metre cut for you.
How would a person go about entering to win the giveaway? A comment on this post is all that's needed - one per person. You can just say hi! Or if you're feeling chatty, you can make a suggestion for what block to choose for the bed quilt I'm planning to ask my Bee members to help me make. The fabric is Spa by Rosemarie Lavin, with a little bit of Hope Valley Foursquare in Pine thrown in for good measure.
Good luck and thank you for making my first year of blogging such a wonderful experience. Here's to many more!
Congratulations on the anniversary! What a wonderfull fabrics you are giving away :) I would gladly advice you which block to choose but I'm not a real quilt expert ^.-ReplyDelete
So I will just wish you many wonderfull blogging years :)
Congratulations on making a year Felicity!! It's been lovely to get to know you a little better using this forum. Oh Lala - beautiful new blog header & fabric. It would be welcome to come hang out at my home!! :DReplyDelete

I'm so glad that I've found so many wonderful quilt blogs to follow...including yours! Can't wait to see what everyone does in this new year! =)
Congratulations Felicity - you are a true inspiration! I admire your commitment to your craft - and in awe of your beautiful creations. I loved the flannel nap quilt you made for James for Christmas - so comfy yet so 'manly' at the same time.ReplyDelete
Happy Blogiversary to you!! I adore your blog, I'm so happy for you. As for a good bee block, what about a wonky log cabin? I'm a real big fan of those right now. Or a spiderweb block? Good luck! :)ReplyDelete

So, I slid in the snow this morning (in my car) and hit a curb. Totally bent a rim. Grrr. Winning a sweet giveaway would totally repair my day. Wish it could repair the car, lolz. :)ReplyDelete

Gorgeous colors! So vibrant. Happy Blogiversary to you. And thanks for sharing iwth us.ReplyDelete
I'm celebrating one year of blogging as well, so I can relate to how nice it is to meet people in blogland who share an interest in handcrafts with me. I don't know which block to suggest to you because I love traditional blocks but know that some quilters enjoy doing their own designs or like to follow a more modern approach to quilting. Congratulations and Best Wishes on your anniversary.ReplyDelete
Happy Blogiverary Felicity! How about a wonky New York beauty block - challenging but fun and it can be nice and bright. Thank you for the giveaway - love the colours!!ReplyDelete
Congratulations! I'm coming up on one year next month -- will have to do something fun to celebrate! I'm loving the orange fabric in particular -- beautiful!ReplyDelete
Hey beautiful - Happy anniversary! If I get randomly picked, I'll walk over and pick the pretty fabric up. Maybe I need to get my sewing machine out.... LisaReplyDelete
Happy Blogiversary. Love that word.ReplyDelete

Ooh, lovely! Found you hunting for new quilty blogs and adding to Google Reader as we speak!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your anniversary. Block suggestion: some type of variation on a churn dash - soft modern fabrics with a traditional block - lots flexibility for each bee partner to interpret the block. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.ReplyDelete
Congrats on your anniversary! The square in square sounds good... : )ReplyDelete
Thanks for the generous giveaway! I love the color palette that you chose for the fabrics for your project! I love those blues and greens.ReplyDelete
