Blog Follower GIVEAWAY!!

Magic happened last night and I have 512 followers today! As promised I have gathered something for a 500 follower giveaway. I usually give something I have made however I have been enjoying the stash giveaways I've been spying around the blogs so.....I have gathered some fabrics, lace, beads, MOP buttons,threads, silk ribbon and an image to play with or add to your stash. The colors are shades of mauve and teal with a little cream.
NOTE~If you do not want stash as a prize you may opt for a printed copy of the Autumn 2011 issue of Crazy Quilt Gatherings.

All you have to do to enter your chance to win is leave an answer to the following question on this post only.
Q: What project are you currently working on? Leave your reply by midnight Thurs the 15th.

  7. Words do not justify that quilt in the video.
    I am beginning a bag in creams and lavenders. My head is always full of beautiful things to make. I wish there was a way to capture that quilt life size. It is just gorgeous

  8. Believe it or not, I still haven't finished the piece I started two years ago when my daughter, my friend Pat, and I took a class with you! I just pulled it out the other day so that I could decide on some tatting to add to it. I think I've found the perfect thread and pattern!

    Thanks for offering this wonderful giveaway!

    Very nice give-away Pat, and love the video as well. I took a 27 year old elf pattern and have adapted it to crazy-quilting, done in Victorian colors. Boots and hat are done, now to embellish his shirt! Debbie (Maine)

  19. Congratulations on the 500 plus followers, however I must say that it doesn't surprise me. As for the giveaway - looks lovely! My current project(s) are more jackets. I'm getting my CQ 'fix' working in that style, only with denim and not with the lovely stitching.

  32. The new magazine is the best so far! I can't wait for the next one. Right now I am working on two BOHO bags and they are addictive. Every time I go to the fabric store I find more fabrics and trims to make more bags. They have started a whole new stash spot in my sewing room.

  43. Hi Pat,
    Congratulations on your 500+ followers. I am working on a Cathedral Windows quilt. I don't know if I should refer to it as a quilt, since it doesn't require batting or quilting. Anyway, I think your work is beautiful. ~Linda

    Love and Hugs,

I really think you have been kind enough to me but it is fun - I love doing these giveaways as it a great way to give something back! 500 is pretty neat! - Just a reflection of how you and your CQ artwork is so appreciated! I've had my head down working on a commission for a Nature Journal - another new challenge but loving it!
    Congrats on making that so beautiful video and for honouring your father in this way - another wonderful gardener who has passed on his green thumbs!
    Love and hugs,
    Suzy
