Next Giveway Announcement

So my last giveaway, for my 100th post, was a bit of a flop. My fault entirely because I foolishly excluded anyone who didn’t reside in the US. I have learned! My future giveaways will include everyone.

I was looking for an occasion for the next giveaway, and number of Comments seems to be the best choice. The problem is, I have just over 400 comments. That means the next logical number is 500. It’s been about a year so at that rate I’m looking at 3 months before the next giveaway! Help me out – comment on this blog – any post, or more than one if you’re so inclined – so we get to the next milestone. Commenter number 500 will receive a prize, AND I will announce another giveaway. Should it be more fabric (I have plenty)? Or should it be a mini quilt? Patterns? A book? What would you like?

There is one rule – when you comment, it must be something valid for the post you’re commenting on. No “Hi, this is my comment” type comments.

Remember, two prizes are at stake here – one for poster number 500, and one for the giveaway that I announce once we reach 500 posts. Tell your friends and announce it on your blog – the sooner we get to 500, the better!



  1. Well, I guess I won’t be number 500 but I will get things started by being one of the first. I enjoy the contents of your blog! What should you give away?? Hhmmm…I think we all agree….anything! We love giveaways!

  2. I am from Sweden and like the idea of thinking outside US. We are a lot of quilters all over the world. My blog is in Swedish but a comment would make me happy and a follower. Put yours in my favourites! And about the give aways I think its lovely with fabrics because its so different material and colors from other countries! I am pretty good to read english, but grammer and spelling, no……

  3. such a fab idea to giveaway the prize to the 500th commenter. I just wish there was a way we could know the total no. of comments in your post!

  4. Ooooh… fabric is always lovely! Especially since I’m trying not to spend!
    Of course, I wouldn’t turn down one of your minis eaither!
    Good luck reaching the #500!

  5. My blog is here in Sri Lanka but we all have quilting in common. Fabric please simply because we do not have special fabric for quilting shops here. We just make do with whatever is available. Also there are no rotary cutters, mats, and all the gee gaws which make life easy. But the blogs and discussions on quilts, quilt designs and ideas are so intriguing that I could spend the whole day just reading blogs like yours.

    Good luck reaching no. 500


  6. Congrats on 100 + posts. I must admit I’ve never looked to see how many comments I have had on my blog…must go and look. Good luck on getting to 500 :o)

  7. found your site flipping thur mini quilt photos on flickr tonight ๐Ÿ™‚ BTW love your mini quilts and I’d almost vote for one of those… but since it’s for 500 celebration – how about the prize to be a charm pack of 500 squares of fabrics? say 5″ or what ever size you like to use best ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Just an idea I thought I’d throw out there for ya! again, glad to have found you tonight. Feel free to stop by and visit my blog too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie
