Give Away


I like to celebrate my One Year Blog Anniversary with a small give away. I have made so many wonderful friends through my blog. I also want to thank you for the comments I have received. After my first blog blowing up I thought of just giving up and being down with it. But I decided to stick with it and made this new one. I'm so glad that I did because its made me so happy sharing this blog and reading others.

First I would like to give away this quilt. I had so much fun making and quilting the quilt.



I also would like to include a pack of Thimbleberrie Fat Quarters and a book.


There is 5 Fat Quarters in the pack...a purple, blue, 2 greens and a red.


The Amish Patterns for Machine Quilting book is a great source for quilting ideas.


Please leave a comment this posting to be entered in the give away.
If you are a follower, please leave another comment for a second chance to win.
And if you have blogged about my give away, please come back with another comment for one more opportunities to win.

Good luck to all of you. Next Saturday I will ask a family member to give me the lucky number of the winner.


Happy New Year to all of you!
I hope 2010 is a lucky year for all of us.
Millie
