100th Post Giveaway

I never thought that I'd be doing this....blogging...and having a giveaway.  

I started doing this to beat the lonesomeness that comes with being a stay at home mom to a toddler transplanted to a "foreign" world.  Never thought I would actually write something that anyone would ever read - it was just a nice outlet.  Then I started commenting on a few blogs and b4 I knew it my blog had visitors - cool.  It also helped me get my quilt-y fix, without spending more money at the shops!

Having recently won several blogland giveaways, the urge to give back hit me hard.  Sew, to celebrate hitting 100 posts we are having a giveaway.  "We" because when I placed my order with Shawna at 1 Choice for Quilting, she offered to double the fun.  Isn't that sweet of her?! Please check out her store with great fabrics and shipping rates ($2.95 for orders up to $50 and free for orders over $50)!


Up for grabs to 2 lucky winners are 2 Prayer Flag charm packs by April Cornell and one yard of solid yellow or off white for background.  Yes, each winner receives 2 charm packs and one yard of coordinating fabric.

Charm packs are fun - they are one of my impulse buys at the shops.  You can get one or two without spending so much that you're dipping into the grocery money!

There are several charm pack patterns at Mode Bake Shop.  Here a few small lap quilts that call for 2 charm packs and one yard of background fabric.  One is Criss Cross Quilt.


Another is A Ritzy Cracker Quilt.

A third is Christmas Table Topper (i.e. a disappearing 9 patch).  This one calls for more than one yard but if you make the sashing a bit smaller, one yard will work.

Don't forget the Schnibbles patterns and the new book from Me & My Sister Designs and all those other charm books out there.  Obviously, these are only suggestions of what 2 lucky winners might do with their prizes.

You have 4 chances to enter, you can do one or do them all:
Please be sure that I have a way to contact you.   "Anonymous" comments will be disqualified.
1. Leave a comment on this post telling me about your Mother's Day plans.
2. Follow this blog, leaving a comment that you do so.
3. Visit Shawna at 1 Choice for Quilting and follow her blog, come back here and tell me that you did.
4. If you can, blog about this giveaway and come back leaving a link to your post.

The giveaway ends at midnight on Wednesday, May 11th.  The winners will be posted Thursday morning.

  26. My Mother's Day plan was to do as little as possible. However, I ended up cooking for Hubby and me (with help from my 5 year old) and then we went to visit his mom for the afternoon. All in all, it was still a good day.

  47. My Mother's day plans were to have my guys get some yard work done. We are hosting a 'Welcome Home' party for a man in my Sunday School class that just got back from Afghanistan. The party is in my back yard, and the back yard needs lots of work before then. My guys did a great job. They also grilled steaks for lunch. Thanks for the giveaway. (PS: the yellow background is great)

  95. I am glad I started my blog it amazes me how friendly people are. I live in France now but originally from the UK and I was missing the social contact I had when I was in England... blogging has certainly helped with that. I didn't do anything different on Mother's day I am only a mother to my dogs and unfortunately I haven't trained them to bring my breakfast in bed. Linda

  96. I visit Shawna regularly, and follower her, and have bought from her...think most people have by now and if they haven't..... more fool them.
