Nine Years a Blogger with a Giveaway

I don't write on my blog as much as I used to,😦 but I do still hold it near and dear. Things have changed since Feb of 2008, but I still make quilts all the time.  I sew everyday.  Right now I am working on four projects that I can't show you because they are being done in secret for future reveals.  I will say that I am working on two wedding quilts, one long overdue quilt for a special little boy, and a special project for my local modern fabric shop. 
I did complete two Sew Together Bags lately.  For my sweet sisters.  I know they will love them as much as I love mine.  Lots of room for all your supplies.  The best accessory bag ever!

This one is for KnittySister.  It matches the totebag I made her last year.








This one is for QuiltySister who loves to knit too.  





So, to celebrate my #9 Blogging year, I am having a giveaway for my lovely followers.  The winner will receive a curated charm pack of 40 - 5" squares cut from my stash.  Here are your choices:

30's reproductions
Batiks
Kaffe Fassett
Cotton and Steel
Kona Solids
Low Volume
Text prints

Choose the charm pack you would like to win and let me know in the comment section.
Only stipulation is that you must be a follower of my blog.
I will choose a winner on Saturday, March 4 .

My giveaway is closed and the winner is ANJA.  Congratulations, I will be in touch! And thanks to all who entered.  I appreciated all the good wishes.  

Take care and I hope you get some time today to do something you love to do.  I am going to do some free motion quilting.😊

  1. Congrats on being in the bloggy game for 9 years! Secret sewing is hard, I feel like quilters naturally want to share their progress with friends! 😊 I'm bouncing back and forth on the charm packs, but I can't pass up Cotton + Steel! 😍

  22. This means I have been reading your blog for almost half the time you have been writing it. I would choose the text prints. Once upon a time I was a writer, and even published a book, until I learned to quilt and turned my creative juices in a different direction.
