2900 followers, 501st blog post and a giveaway!!

screen shot 

So, a little over 4 years ago I started this blog and I never really thought that just after a few short years I would have a following and a great following to boot! You readers out there make me feel so loved! THANK YOU! I realized that my last post was my 500th post. I can't believe I have had that much to talk about ;)  I was thinking this morning that I should give away something that I love in celebration of this little milestone of mine. It had to be something special - and I want you to know that it comes out of my personal stash. The reality of me just hoarding this fabric and not getting to it makes it a little easier for me to give it away to one of you. I am sure you will make something out of it before I would even have time to unwrap the corded ribbon ;)

sew stitchy 

How about this beauty of a Fat Quarter Bundle?  Sew Stitchy to be exact and I love it! This bundle is up for grabs in a random drawing.  Now, I would be lying if I said I didn't want more followers, I do - it would be the perfect start of an awesome day!  I want to get over 3000 followers with this giveaway - now, most likely you are already following because you are reading this post, but if for some reason you aren't - just click the follow button over on the left sidebar on my blog and make it official!

Here's the rules - just head on over to our website and tell me some of your favorite January - April 2013 precuts.  We have all our pre-purchase fabric on sale for 25% off.  This is a great way to be sure that you get the precuts you want before they are released to us.  So, that's it - just tell me what fabrics you love the most!  Good luck!  I will announce the winner in a few days! 

Oh, and follow me if you aren't already! ;)

Lindsay said...

I like Comma,

TheQuiltedFrog said...

Judi, you are so talented. I really enjoy how you show the back of your quilt once you are finished quilting it because the back of your quilting is as beautiful--if not more so--as the front. One of the pre-cuts that I'm looking forward to is "Snap Pop" coming in March. Thanks for all that you do!

Nancy said...

I can't wait for Indigo Crossing - already have my order in for that :)

Elizabeth said...

Indigo! January. Reminds me of home in Africa, the traditional swe-swe fabric. As a sign of respect to ones mother-in-law, a dress for everyday wear is made from the indigo fabric, decorated with bright rick-rack. The bride wear this as a way to communicate that she is happy and welcomed by her new family. It is part of the bride price, Labola, which is paid by the groom to his wife's father. This is his family's gift to his new wife. So January, may be cold here, but the sun shines warm in the southern hemisphere summer! Congrats on 500, cannot wait for the next 500 posts!
