7 Year Blogiversary Giveaway


I made my first blog post on February 11, 2009- you can see it HERE if you want.
What's a blog with no readers? A really quiet and boring blog! This giveaway is my way of thanking you who have read and left comments over the past 7 years! Thank you for making the world a bit more personal and intimate.

Here's the little World Piece basket quilt that I'm giving away to a reader. 

 My theme bundle was India. I love the elephants.

The quilting is light and simple.


More elephants! Too cute!! The fabric was designed by Mary Fons, printed by Springs Creative.
The basket pattern I used was designed by Blackbird Designs and is in their book When the Cold Wind Blows.


Leave a comment for a chance to win. If you are a no-reply commenter please leave me your email address. If you don't know if you are a no-reply or not, I'll reply on the comment and let you know if I cannot contact you- so check back on your comment if you aren't sure.

Have a fantastic weekend. I'll draw next Wednesday to give everyone plenty of time to enter.

This giveaway is now closed! Thank you for your positive responses!!

  1. Seven years...congrats! The quilt is very cute and I love the elephants too. My grandmother had a collection of wooden elephants along with a few other safari animals. I loved those and have a few now of my own. Whenever I see an elephant I think of her.

  36. Congratulations. I always like to see what you are working on. This is a very nice finish. Yesterday I saw the Kaffe Fassett display here in PA and one of the old English quilts that he used for inspiration had the most interesting applique stitch. It was sort of a tiny cross-hatch, very different.
