One Year of Blogging Giveaway!

I can't believe it's been one year since I started this blog.  It's been so much fun and I've met so many generous, nice, funny and creative people.  The Fat Quarter Shop is helping me celebrate by sponsoring a giveaway of not one, but TWO charm packs of Little Black Dress by Basic Grey for Moda.  

Thank you for following my blog along the way.. and special shout out to my first ever follower, Sunny @ Quilting Dreams.  I couldn't believe that a stranger a) found my blog in the first place and b) followed it.  Sunny has been so sweet and encouraging.  It's been so great getting to know quilters from all over the place! And being inspired by all of you. I wouldn't trade this little piece of cyberspace for the world!

To enter, just leave a comment letting me know you follow, that's it.  No hoops.  I will post the winner on Wednesday, only two days from now so hurry and enter! :o)

Oh, and remember the Kickin' Stash group quilt project/block swap that I kept blogging about earlier in the year?  Well, I made another KS block, this one in rainbow-y colors to go with my Modern Sampler Bee blocks.

And here is the rest of my collection.. getting bigger all the time. :o)

Thanks for being part of my blogging journey!  See you on Wednesday to announce the winner!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

P.S. Linking up to WIP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced.

Dear Kellie

Congratulations from far away, i am a follower for a long time. This Charmpacks are so wonderful. I am a fan of a "light and friendly black" ;-)) I love it. Maybe you send to Germany, but i never win a giveaway.
My Blog is nearly one year old, before i had one for 7 years. I love the connections around the world.
