100th POST!!!

I can't believe that this is my 100th blog post. I started a little over a year ago, after much encouragement from my friend Becky, the Quilting Book Lady. I have found that I really enjoy blogging. I like to keep up with what everyone is doing in different parts of the country and share what is going on in my little part of the world. I even have a giveaway for this special occasion. I have a charm pack in the new Moda Aviary, two patterns and a book. The drawing will be on Monday May 25, Memorial Day. Leave a comment and have your name entered into the drawing. Mention your favorite quilting book and have it entered twice. I am always on the lookout for great quilting books.

Well Brenda, since I am one of the jelly roll junkies, I gues my current favorite book is the Jelly Roll Book. Can't wait for the sequel!!
Congrats on #100. I need to count and see where I am. Missed you on Saturday

I don't really have any quilt books that are my favourite. I did borrow one from the library that was about quilts from the Quiltmaker's Gift (I think that's the name of it??). It was very interesting. Mostly I get my inspiration from the internet, especially tutorials and blogs.

Count me in!

Congratulations on reaching "100" !!! Blogging gets addictive doesn't it? My favorite books.... I'm anxious to see Simple Comforts by Kim Diehl. Just stumbled across it on Amazon. Probably my favorite is 40 Fabulous Quilts. I also love anything dealing with scrap quilts. I also saw a new Nickle Quilts book at Sweet Home that I'm thinking of buying. Hope that you are having a fabulous weekend!

Congratulations on reaching your first 100! My current favorite is a fairly new one by Susan Briscoe called "Japanese Quilt Blocks." Lots of neat pieced blocks and some applique, with some sashiko instruction thrown in for good measure.

What a super giveaway...love Aviary and Black Mountain Quilt patterns!!! Wow...my favorite quilt book...that is a tough one! Recently I've been reading Material Obsession, and Fresh Vintage. They have great projects and also have great pictures to look at! There is a new Kim Diehl book out called Simple Comforts that is on my list to buy next...I've heard it's really good, and I love her other books!

Brenda , congrats on your 100th - I love reading all the "quilt - y" blogs. I made my second quilt ever, for my Mom for Christmas 2 or 3 years ago - and yes she cried - it has to be my favorite, "Quilting the Garden", by Barb Adams, Alma Allen, and Ricki Creamer! Heres to 100 more and more and more...
