10 Year Blogiversary Giveaway!

Ten years ago I wrote my first blog post. I had no idea then how many friends I would make! I appreciate every reader, every comment. I would love to give each one of you a gift for all the encouragement and kindness you have shown me. Since I am unable to do that, I decided to have a little giveaway instead.

I chose ten small quilts that I have made over the last decade to give away. To win, leave a comment below and let me know if you prefer traditional or modern. I have each quilt placed in an envelope, marked only with a T or M. As I draw names, I will grab an envelope matching your style choice. None of us will know who gets what! This is open to all readers anywhere in the world.

Here is a closer look at each quilt.

This giveaway will close at midnight Wednesday and winners will be announced on Thursday. Thanks for sticking with me. Here’s to another ten years! Have a good one.

    Katy you have no idea how much encouragement you have given me since I found your blog. After my youngest son passed 3.5 years ago, your blog was one of the few “things” that made me want to get up every morning. To open your blog was the first thing I did every morning. You are a very special young lady and thank you for all your sharing . I have done one “scrap” quilt for my brother who lives in Ireland. I felt I could do it because if you and Barb over at “fun with Barb and Mary. It was called the wall, my brother builds those beautiful stone walls that are found in Ireland. I will have to ask my son to help me send you a picture.
    Merry Christmas to you and you family .
