Giveaway begins!!!


Fall into Fall giveaway winners!!

And the grand prize winner is #130-Marie!  Yeah!!!

And the bonus prize winner is #77 Jenni!!


Today starts my first blog giveaway!!  Yeah!!!

It will continue until I pick the winner on October 15.

I am linked with the Fall into Fall Quilter Bloggers Giveaway and I will be giving away :




~a great pair of Gingher Shears-left or right handed(shown)

~3 Ginger quilt rulers 6.5x12.5, 3.5x18.5, and 6.5x6.5

~plus two fabulous fat quarters I found at my local quilt store Sewingly Yours!


To be eligible you must become a follower of my blog and leave a comment telling me what project you are working on right now.

If you share my blog on your website I will enter you twice, just let me know in your comment with your blogs address.

That's it!  Simple! 

I can't wait to visit every one's blogs! 

I learned to quilt on the Internet in the 90's when all we had were newsgroups and list serves and ASCII drawings. 

 I love all the pictures and projects in today's Internet quilting world!




Keep dreaming...Colleen...aka 'butterflygirl'

PS. I forgot to tell you what I am working on right now.  A Butterfly girl quilt that I give you a sneak peek of on the left.  Also a circles table runner from the Moda Bake shop as a wedding present for next Sat!  I have to get it finished!

added 10/4-Wow!! I never imagined so many people would participate!  When my followers hit 100 I am adding an additional giveaway!! Not sure what but I'm perusing my goodies-more scissors?, fat quarters?,???. 

 BTW  I can be so generous with the Gingher scissors and rulers because we had an unusual once in a lifetime warehouse sale a few weeks ago.  I wont even tell you the prices as they would make you ill-it does everyone who missed it!

added 10/7- Ok so I have reached over 125 followers and have more than 140 comments on my blog!!!  I feel so blessed!! I have enjoyed reading all of the comments and I have tried to answer as many as I can  but... I mean 140!! And to think I originally hoped to have 41.  So I said I would add a 2nd giveaway and I have looked through my goodies come up with this:

A small handmade basket by me! I love this pattern it is so quick and easy to make.

Inside I have included 4 of my favorite fat quarters,
a Thimbleberries pattern-Midnight Star, som wool yarn for embellisment, and muslin stamped paper piecing designs -2 each of cat and courthouse steps.  Who knows I may add a few extras more.

Mary said...

Good morning! I am following your blog. Today I will quilt and bind my 4th (and last) crib quilt. Bought fat quarters for pinwheels for 2 crib quilts, then decided to use all the fabric -- it's definitely baby fabric, I'm not likely to use it in another type of quilt, so I was in pinwheel h-e-double hockey sticks for a few weeks lol! I ended up with 4 crib quilts, and could have made a 5th except the colors of the pinwheels left didn't work for me. So will be DONE DONE DONE! with these by dinner time today. I love to finish a project!

Karin said...

OMG! When I saw the name of your favorite quilt shoppe, I wondered, could it be possible? Then I went and looked at your profile and saw your hometown! We lived in Clemmons, and I probably bumped into you without even knowing it! Hope that doesn't disqualify me from your terrific giveaway! We went on the road, fulltime in our RV about 4 years ago, and now we're in the tip of Texas, about as far South as you can go and still stay in the lower 40! Please give hugs to the ladies of the shop for me! They do have the best sales & specials, don't they??? In all our travels, I've not found a friendly sewing family or shop (and I've been looking, lemme tell ya).

Karin said...

Oh, and I've become a follower, thank you very much! :)

Great giveaway!! I love the shears - can't see them too well but they look so cute :)

I live in a quaint New England town in Vermont. I was disappointed by the lack of peak performance for fall foliage this year. So I decided to make a wall quilt. I call it Autumn's end. The center medallion is vibrant colors of Fall and then the borders slowly calm down I only have to trim the edges and bind it. It came out pretty good.

I need new rulers so bad!!! My son accidentally broke one when we moved, and the others have the paint worn off.

I am working on what I call my "Generations" quilt. It has a collaged photo of my mom, myself, and my daughter when we were babies in the middle,and am doing the rest as a small medallion style hanging. Only no applique as I am not good at that yet :)
