300 Followers Blog Giveaway!

I LOVE MY FOLLOWERS! 

Big Smileys

YOU MAKE ME HAPPY! 

I couldn't believe it when I looked yesterday and was within 1 follower of 300!  I said, Well...one more and we will have a giveaway!  I looked this morning and viola! Thanks to Coloradolady there was #300!!

Here is what I am offering up today to one lucky reader! This book, written by Sue Patten, is chocked full of some really fantastic quilting designs! I had bought this book a few years ago and then I signed up to take a class with her in Feb 2010!  She had books for sale at the class and I couldn't help but purchase another so she could hand sign it! Well, I have kept the second book all this time and have recently re-organized my quilting studio!  It is time to clear out some things and as I do not need 2 copies of this book, some lucky reader is going to add this to their collection!


Coloradolady is also going to be receiving a surprise squishie in the mail for being follower #300!  Maybe a jar of my homemade pickles?? If she sees this, she can let me know if she likes a good sweet pickle!

To sign up leave me a comment!  If you have been a follower for a while tell me what your favorite post to date has been on my blog.

If you are a new follower, please file back through my ramblings and let me know which story drew more of your interest.

I am not a great writer so my blog can be pretty boring at times but I do try! I would love to know the stories that have really appealed to my readers since the blog went live.  My hubby tells me that I write like I talk... he is always making fun of me like that! But I still love him! :)

If you have just found my blog, Smiley!! I would love to have you as one of my newest followers...although I do not make it mandatory to enter one of my giveaways. I am hosting a quilt show, Men Quilt Too, here on Pig Tales and Quilts beginning on October 1st! ....so if you click follow you are sure not to forget to come back to check out the show! The men who have been signing on are some very talented quilters/artists!

I want to take this time to tell my followers that I truly appreciate each and every one of you!  Your comments always makes me Smiley and makes me feel like what I am writing about interests you!

Alrighty then! Start commenting! I will draw the lucky winner on September 1st at 2:00 p.m. Eastern time!

Hi Thearica,
Congrats on 300 followers! My favorite posts have been about the sewing projects you and Allie have enjoyed together. It just warms my heart to see your skills passed down to a younger generation. You're both making such treasured memories!
The book you're giving away looks really neat. I might have to find it online. :)

Congrats on your 300 Followers & thanks for the giveaway!

I love your Tutorial Thursdays :D

Coloradolady said...

Well how exciting!!! Your post totally made my morning!!!

Yes, I could not wait to follow your blog after reading about your Men Quilt Too on "That Man Quilts" blog!! I can not wait for that, I have seen some amazing talented quilters who happen to be men....they are much better than myself if I do have to say it!! This should be fun!!

And my very favorite pickle is a good sweet one!! You are so sweet!! And that is totally not necessary....but how fun and yummy that is!!!

I hope you have a "sew" terrific day!!!

I liked Odds and Ends from the pigpen. The idea of the ugly contest is great. There are so many fabrics I think are ugly, or beautiful ones in the wrong combination. Everyone's opinion differs, so whose to really say if it's ugly or not? It is just funny.

Giles said...

I found your blog after Quilter in the Gap told me about your male quilt fest! I will be entering my blog, and will be working full tilt to try and get my first quilt finished so it can go into the competition! :)

I too enjoy the tutorial posts - I'm right at the start of my quilting exploits, so any tips are super duper helpful! :)

Awesome job hitting the 300 followers mark! I got into double figures with follwers 10 and 11 this week, so I can imagine how exciting it is to hit a hundreds milestone!

Adventures with Allie are the ones that I spend the most time rereading, Thearica, although my absolute favorites are the Raffle Opportunities you post.

Yay for you on reaching 300. I like all your post but especially about your grandaughter. I've been following for awhile.

Carol said...

Thearica, congratulations on 300 followers! That is AWESOME! I have followed you for awhile now and thoroughly love reading your history posts as well as teaching Allie to quilt. Makes me wish I lived closer to you so you could teach me! ;-)

The pickles I won from you awhile back were absolutely DELICIOUS! I shared them (grudgingly) with the rest of my family and they all enjoyed them too.

Congrats again!

Congratulations on reaching 300 followers, Thearica! It was fun when you posted your find of an 'antique' string holder and then I posted the one my mother has. Definitely interesting old pieces!

Congratulations! I'm new, but your blog looks great, and I'll be adding it to my list of places to check every day for inspiration.

Kathy said...

Congrats on 300 followers. I just started FMQ and did my second quilt. I'd LOVE to learn more filler patterns because the quiltalong I am doing now will have a lot of negative space and I'll need to figure out what to do with it. Thanks for the chance to win!

marth225 said...

Just wanted to say congrats on the followers I already have that book

Kathy H said...

That looks like a great book to have. I am always looking for ideas on how to quilt a quilt. I enjoyed the post from june when you showed the quilting on several quilts.

Pam said...

I have been trying to do more creative FMQ. I always seem to end up with loops, which are good but all the patterns are so much more interesting. I am a new follower and I would love and use that book tons. Thanks

Needled Mom said...
