Celebrating my 100th Post!!

OK, you just KNOW 100 posts needs a celebration! So I'm celebrating with a give-away! Actually, I'm going to give 2 prizes, so listen up.

First up is a magazine "Quilt". This is one of my favorite magazines. There are several cute quilts in this magazine every month. There is always pattern pages in the magazine, and this month there are templates for the tulip quilt on the cover (plus other things). There is an applique framed picture with embroidery, a lesson in a quick binding technique, and even a quilt they claim to be able to be made in 90 minutes!! (Hmm, not sure I could get it done in 90 minutes, I always seem to be slow in putting things together!) Oh, and don't forget the tote bag instructions. And the best part of this prize??? Not only do you get this magazine, but I'm giving a 1 year subscription!!

Prize number 2: A packet of 6 fat quarters. I just love these cardinals. And with 6 fat quarters you should have enough to make a wall hanging. Or just add these to your stash! It's up to you. (Hmm, looking at the 90 minute quilt in the magazine there is ALMOST enough fabric here to make that quilt. Might be hard to get the cardinals fussy cut tho!)

And I am going to add a porcupine quill stiletto to each prize also. It you haven't been reading my blog for a long time, you may not have heard about the porcupine stilettos. These are great! The tips hold on to your fabric but don't damage it. If you hit the stiletto with your sewing machine needle, no worries! (I've done that a couple of times. No needle damage, and the quill survives too.) If you want to see what these look like, make a note on your entry comment, and I'll show you a picture in my next post.

AND I reserve the right to add anything else I come up with to the prizes!

So, here are the particulars! Please leave me a comment on THIS posting. AND I need you to tell me if you would prefer the magazine or the fat quarters. The first person drawn will get their choice, the second drawn will get the other prize. If the first drawn does not indicate a preference, the second drawn will get their choice. Sound fair?? I hope so, cause that's the rules!! Oh, and entry deadline will be February 15th, at noon Mountain Standard Time. That's just a little longer than a week.

Hugs to all, and good luck!

Happy 100th post to you! That is exciting!!! How very cool is that!?
What a generous giveaway...a yr subsription to a quilt magazine or a buncha darling fat quarters....hmmmm....
I do want to learn quilting, but I'm not sure I'm ready to take the plunge, yet....and since I REALLY want to learn Crazy Quilting and I could use the fat quarters for that...I'll go with the fat quarters! TMI (too much information)? LOL!

I would love to learn more about the porcupine quill stiletto! I've never heard of it.

Thanks again for the generous giveaway! :)

Well done on 100 posts. I am in the UK so the magazine, might be a bother to do for you, but if it's not that would be fab. The fabrics are gorgeous too. But most importantly, here's to 100 more!!!!!! Keep blogging and creating Vicki!

Congratulations on reaching 100! I love reading your blog and seeing the beautiful things you create.

I would love to be entered into your drawing. You want me to make a choice between your two fantastic giveaways! Not easy, but I will chose the magazine. I do not remember the porcupine quill so would love to know more about it.

Thank you for offering these as prizes.

Congratulations! Isn't blogging fun!?! I found your blog through Jeanne's post. I would sure love to win the cardinal fabrics. To see a cardinal here in the winter is extremely rare. We still talk about a Christmas years ago when a cardinal was sitting in our maple tree!

Happy 100th post! What a wonderful, generous give away. I would love to win one of those prizes! I am in Canada, so if I win, you can send me the one that is easiest for you to mail. I would also like to know what a porcupine quill stiletto is.

DianeH said...

Wow, Congratulations on your 100th post! That's an amazing amount of time and effort and you've done it!
Wonderful giveaway - I'll go for the fat quarter's please. Love the cardinal's, I have a bug about cardinal's on anything and am so pleased when they put both male and female - not just males! Continued success with your blog, I look forward to following you.

Mary said...

Congratulations. I came to your blog by way of Luv 2 Stitch. I started my blog mainly to share photos with my family but, WOW, I'm having such fun visiting "new friends" from all around the world. I love getting new ideas for quilts.

I love cardinals..we have 6 pair in our back yard. They live here year round. My husband spends a lot of money at the feed store buying the choicest mix of nuts and seeds!!

Hi Vicki,
Lovely post with lovely giveaway prizes.
I will love to have either prize but I am not sure if it might make a difference to you that I am one of your northern Canadian neighbors and that will make a subscription more complicated. I love the bird fat quarters - they are very pretty.
I hope that you will continue to enjoy blogging - it is lots of fun and you get to meet so many other wonderful quilters around the globe.
Thank you for hosting a lovely giveaway.
Regards from a Western Canadian Quilter,

Hooray for 100 posts, Vicki!! It certainly is a real milestone for bloggers (since I haven't reached the 100 yet and know how tough that can be). Here's to the next 100! I was lucky in love 3 yrs ago today (our anniversary) so maybe today will be another lucky day for me! I would love the fabric and I too am curious about the stiletto. Thank you for your generosity! :o)

Lilly said...
