Happy 6th Blogiversary to me!

Be sure to check out the 2,000th post giveaway! Free quilting!! There's still time to enter!

Six years ago, I started my little blog to meet other quilters online and to share my quilting hobby with friends. I still enjoy meeting the new people online through comments and other blogs and I have really enjoyed getting to know others better in the last six years!

I already got all mushy on the 2,000th blog post so I am going to skip that here. You're welcome! :)

To celebrate my blogiversary, I am giving away a copy of Modern Designs for Classic Quilts. This was written by fellow CMQG guild members Kelly Biscopink and Andrea Johnson and there are 3 quilts that I quilted for these gals in the book! It was really wonderful to be asked to help out with  the quilts, but it is fantastic to see my name listed in the book as well!




Here is a close up of the cover girl, Urban Cabin, that I quilted. I just love how this turned out!

This giveaway is open to anyone - US and international.

To be entered, leave me a comment. I will draw a name in one week on August 4.

And the most important part... If you are a NO REPLY COMMENTER, you must leave your email address in the comment. If you don't and I have no way to get in touch with you, I will delete your comment from the post. I will be responding to each and every comment that is left so if you don't hear from me within a couple of days, you are probably marked as No Reply.  If you are unsure if you are no reply, just put your email in the comment.

Thanks for joining me on my blog journey! Good luck!

Congrats on 6 years! I should go back and see how old mine is. :). So I gotta know. The quilt where you shared the quilting -- did you do that on your long arm? Is that even possible?!? :)

Michele said...

Wow. Not one but two big milestones at the same time. Good for you.

Congrats on yet ANOTHER amazing achievement! You are so lucky to have a MQG in your community. I've considered joining with one of their new individual memberships, but it's just not the same as sitting down with other modern quilters from time to time! Thanks for the great giveaway and sharing this accomplishment with us.

Sharon said...

Yay! Another chance to win something. I like the looks of the book. I would never consider myself a "modern" quilter but I like a lot of the modern patterns. I use more traditional fabrics but so many patterns are great in any fabric combination.

Elizabeth Stamps said...

Congrats Jill on your 6th year anniversary. Wow that book is such a great prize for anyone that is lucky enough to win it. Here's to another 6 years and more.

Brenda said...

I have just started to fall in love with these 'modern' quilts that people all talk about - they are fun and just more ways to sew with my fabrics!! this book, I would like to see because of what the title is, but also because I know you have done some of the quilting inside it - so I would be able to see your work in a book I have!!!

I will enjoy reading about who wins this beauty and put this on my list of books for me!
Have a super week and thanks for 'meeting' me!!!
