My Blogging History

I started LA Quilter in the early part of 2006.  Reading back occasionally through those posts is like a walk down memory lane. 

There's been sadness and joy through this time, a small portion of which I've shared here.  I lost my sweet Daisy three years ago, my wonderful boss two years ago, and Penny came bouncing and yipping into my life.  I've been home to visit my brother and sister-in-law several times, taken a few other memorable trips, worried myself sick about a loved one going through an illness, and worked my fingers to the bone.  Sometimes I've been a prolific quilter, sometimes not.  In short, I've lived a normal life with the normal ups and downs that we all experience.

However, one of the total joys has been getting to know bloggers from around the world.  Okay, maybe I don't "know" you, but I feel like I do.  There's nothing better than to sit down at the computer to find an email from a blogger just checking in or wanting to share some exciting news!

I realized yesterday that one more post and I'll have accomplished 1111 blog posts!!  That's six plus years of blogging, an average of 185 blog posts a year!  And here you thought I had nothing to say!!

Well, you were wrong!  I do have something to say here, and I hope everyone who is reading this pays close attention!

This is my 1111th post and there's going to be a drawing!!!!!!!

And it's going to be a good one!  One blogger who leaves a comment will win a $100 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop!  (Kathie, thanks.  I fixed the link!)

I was going to say your comment had to be about how wonderful it has been reading every single one of the 1111 posts, but then I figured that feeble attempt at humor would totally irritate those who do not enjoy reading my blog!  (Is it just me, or does anyone else find it humorous that even though someone may not enjoy reading a blog, they still read it?)

Anyway, those of you who happen to be followers, even when I don't post anything for weeks at a time, should leave a comment about what you will purchase from the Fat Quarter Shop if you win this drawing.  Maybe it's been something for which you've been searching, or maybe it's something that you just saw this week on the posts from Market now in progress!  How about a bolt of background or a solid that would work nicely with your stash?   Or how about a ton of new patterns?  Or a ton of fabric from the sale section?  Or a kit that you've been pining after?  There's an awful lot to choose from at the Fat Quarter Shop!!  The winner will have $100 to spend, and we want to know how you'd spend it!

The drawing will be held Friday, November 2nd, at whatever time I get home that night.  If I stop by to visit with Jane, it might be a little later, so be patient.

It'll be a totally random drawing!  Groveling is not necessary!   :)  :)  So head on over to the Fat Quarter Shop and start putting your lists together!  I'll leave the light on for you!!!

Congrats on your fortitude...It's a great diary of life and quilting-- hope you are getting segments printed for posterity.It's an easy pick on what I would purchase. I cleaned out my son's room(the realization that he's finally grown up and not coming back)I have cut up t-shirts for a quilt. I have concert tees, frat tees, church group memories, and I want to buy background and backing material to complete the project for Christmas....

Anonymous said...

If I were to win, I'm not 100% sure what I buy. Most likely some large pieces for backings since I have a big stack of flimsies and am just about ready to either hand quilt them (my preference) or send them out to be quilted. But, I'm very sure that a portion, possibly a large portion, would be spent by my 9 year old granddaughter Ryley, who is my quilting buddy. She has her own machine, her own stash and positively NO FEAR when it comes to cutting it up and using it. I love enabling her quilting and we would have such a nice time scouring the site and picking out fabrics.

And, btw, you might want to check your calendar. October 5 has come and gone already. Maybe you meant to say November 2?

Rhonda P. said...

WOW! 1111 posts! Congratulations! The Fat Quarter Shop is amazing and I am sure I would buy more than $100. It would depend on what I was working on at the time but backings are always a necessity.

Anonymous said...

I read your blog. Congrats on 1111 posts. Keep them coming. If I won I'd like to add to my Civil War stash..thanks for the chance and QUILT ON!

Carol said...

Congratulations Vicky...yours was one of the first blogs I started reading over 6 years ago...I know exactly what I'd get...that darling Marmalade Flower Girl kit you had on your blog yesterday. I love it!

Vicki W said...

I always enjoy visits to your blog. We started blogging the same year. I feel certain that I found you throigh Judy L. My fabric shopping these days focuses on finding new symmetry prints. :-)

Debbie in Duluth said...

I would buy backing and batting for upcoming projects, including a Christmas tree skirt for a wedding gift, a t-shirt quilt for a graduation gift, and a couple of baby quilts for the joy of it all!

Kate said...

Wow - 1111! I haven't been following near that long - only like two years or so. ;) And since I know you loooooooove constructive criticism comments - how are you going to draw a winner on October 5? Do you have a time machine? Because that would be awesome! :D
Anyway, what would I buy? A pile of Pat Bravo - mixing and matching from every line FQS has. Star Wars fat quarters. And a pile of charm packs if I have anything left.
Thanks so much!

Erica said...

Congratulations! 1111 posts is quite a feat. If I won the giveaway, I would get the "Noteworthy" FQ bundle from Sweetwater. I love all those text prints!

1111 posts - holy moley that's alot of chatter and I'm enjoyed every word. :-)

You're the first blog I discovered and then inspired me to start my own blog. Your claim to fame with me .... you shoved me off the hand applique fence and I love you for it. :-)

You already know how much I adore you and hope to meet you someday.

Please do not enter me the giveaway and we both know why. :-)

Mimi said...

Well, I guess I can't pass this one up. It's like giving a kid a $1 in a candy store (or...that only worked in my younger days), but I would buy several things, homespuns, civil war and something new that has come out on the market. I am thinking $100 would go quite far. Thanks for the chance in winning this Vicky.

tpott said...

Well congratulations to you, that's some pile of posts. I don't have a blog but I love to read about what other quilters are doing. Around 2 years ago I started reading blogs, I think I'm addicted. If I won I'd buy enough fat quarters to make a Swoon quilt. I already bought all the quarter yds only to find out I needed FAT quarters. Congratulation again for letting us peek into your life and your quilting room. Thanks! Toni Anne

Cathy said...

Congratulations on so many posts! I do enjoy your blog because you always say what you feel. : ) I would probably shop for some Kaffe Fassett bundles. But then I might get sidetracked and "poke" something else!

manybooks said...

Congratulations and THANK YOU for those 1111 posts! I order WAY too often from FQS - waiting for not one, but TWO orders in the mail right now... yikes! (including that darling Marmalade kit!!) so I'm sure I could make good use of a GC from there. THanks for the chance!

Ann said...

Congrats, Vicky. That's a long running blog. I enjoy reading your posts and either seeing what you're working on or reading how you're trying to squeeze in quilting around the edges like most of us.

I have a few things I'd like to get, but mostly right now I have 25 or so "coming soon" emails from Kimberly I haven't looked at, so I know there is some special fabric that I'll just love.

Mary-Kay said...

Congratulations on 1111 posts! You've been busy. I started following your blog about 4 years ago, when you used to post your stash report. I always thought you had toms of fabric until I started posting my stash and I think we're pretty neck and neck for a while there. I think you must have shares in The Fat Quarter Shop. What a great site! Too many things to buy, patterns, fabrics and kits. A person could go crazy, like I certainly would!

Monica said...

Lots and lots of Kona solids!

Congrats on 1111 posts! I'm barely coming up on 300 in three and half years.

Diane aka cameldiva said...

Nothing like a draw to draw out all the lurkers, eh?

Congrats on your 1111th post. I am glad you stuck with it. I enjoy reading your blog just for the sheer ordinaryness of it. You aren't selling me something, or pimping the newest and greatest gadget and I love Penny updates. never mind the nasties out there (sort of like ghastlies, I guess) but know that you have a bevy of fans that love your blog, no matter what. I shall enjoy looking at stuff at the FQS if I should be so lucky to win.I am currently making a T quilt and so have been looking at oranges and pumpkins galore.
Here's to another 1111 posts :)

Kathleen said...

I enjoy reading your blog and worry when too much time goes between posts. If I won, I'd get tone-on-tones and neutral backgrounds. Please keep blogging!

Threads by Terry said...

I love you blog.. I would buy some marmalade, lots of marmalade

Dee said...

It's strange how you can consider those you've never met (and will probably never meet) to be friends, but blogging does seem to create that kind of community. I do enjoy hearing how you and Penny are doing. I'm also like to hear about your quilting projects and your purchases from FQS. As for what I'd purchase, I'd probably get some Bella solids or perhaps some Independence Trail. They have so much, it's rather difficult to choose!

Faithful Quilter:Elaine's Journey said...

Congratulations on your 1111th blog post!

Love the Fat Quarter Shop...what a difficult decision on what I would buy if I was fortunate enough to win but....

I think I would have to go with yardage for the "Square In A Square" quilt from the IQSC line by Kathy Hall and Jo Morton. Gorgeous fabrics!!!

Thank you and the Fat Quarter shop for a great give-away!!

CitricSugar said...

Congratulations on the milestone! I discovered you a couple years ago and enjoy popping in to see what's going on… This is a ridiculously kind and generous giveaway. Thank you!

I definitely want some of V&Co.'s Simply Colour yardage (especially the ombre), some bright Kona solids that I can't get here, and a couple of fancy rulers. I love FQS...

~Kristie said...

Congrats - that is one heck of a feat! I subscribe through a reader and always enjoy reading about your adventures with Penny.

I'm a Thimbleberries gal, but there's not much in FQS of those fabrics. I love the Miss Rosie pattern Double Duty but haven't made it yet, so I'd probably buy some Kansas Troubles Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls ;)

Glenda in Florida said...

Congratulations on your milestone! I might have missed one or two posts, but I really doubt it. When I check in, I read back until I get to the last one I read. If I won, I'd buy all the new Little Bites patterns my Miss Rosie, and then with what was left, I'd buy a few more Schnibbles. I've got lots, but could always use more. Thanks for offering up the drawing.

Kigwit said...

That's a lot of posts!! Congrats! If I won I would buy some Jo Morton but I would also get some Cherry Christmas and I would have to get more Dear Mr. Claus. I know those colors don't go together but that is just how I roll!

Churn Dash said...

I would have to add to my Civil War collection. I just finished a quilt that put a dent in my collection!

Sally said...

Vicki, I can't believe it's been 6 years since you started your blog...congratulations! I think I'd choose several things from the Blitzen line cause I've want 2013 to be the year I work on tons of Christmas quilts! Pick me, please!

Louisa said...

A block of the month or a quilt kit!! I love kits.

JudyT said...

Congratulations, Vicky, on having on reached a milestone number of posts. I've spent hours going back looking for "how did she do that" references! I would definitely buy backing material for the many bundles I've accumulated and didn't buy backings for at the time of purchase.

Mary said...

Congratulations! I do enjoy reading your blog. It is REAL stuff! I'd be buying Barbara Brackman's new Civil War fabrics with that money for sure. Thank you for the chance to win.
Mary

Laura said...

Love reading your blog, and really miss it when you don't post for a while. Right now I'm in love with Simply Color by V and Co. Would love to get a jelly roll and some yardage. Thanks!

Erica said...

I have your blog bookmarked on a list that I check every single day for the last 3 years or so. That is an amazing number of posts! Congratulations on your accomplishment.

I am always very pleased with the service and my orders from FQS. If I had a gift certificate, I would buy some fabric from the Dear Mr. Claus line - enough to make a tablecloth and napkins and maybe some gift bags. The vintage prints remind me of being a little girl and watching my mom get ready for Christmas - brings back very sweet memories.

FrancisMoore said...

Congratulations! If if should win, I would purchase sale fabrics to use in my charity quilting. I make dresses (pillowcase) to send to different parts of the world. I also make Quilts of Valor.

Carol said...

Love reading your blog and hearing about Penny. I would probably buy a quilt kit. Thanks for the giveaway.

Patricia said...

I haven't read all 1111 posts, but I have been a follower for about 4 years. I do enjoy a little look into your life---sometimes making me wish I was a next door neighbor! Now what would I buy---probably some brights (in fat quarters) so I could get a LOT for my money! Sure hope I win! Congrats on your anniversary!

Carolyn said...

Congratulations! I think I've been blogging since 2005, but don't have nearly as many posts! I always have good intentions, though! I'd purchase flannel if I were to win. I gave my husband a flannel quilt on our 12th anniversary and it's worn through. I'd love to make him a new one!

Lynne in Hawaii said...

I've followed you for a number of years! As for the Fat Quarter Shop, it is easy to spend hours lusting over fabric. Stash must be fed for proper growth! So many fabrics, so little time!

Sharon said...

Wow, that's a lot of posts. I love that Chocolate Wagon Wheel kit! Lord knows I "need" another kit, right?

Kathie said...

The link doesn't go to the FQS! change that please!!!!
I had to to my book mark and look, ok drool and dream! of course I would start with a few yards of the red and white shirting you showed yesterday! and then I would have to say I would probably order a quilt kit , love the Double Chocolat wow ,would be a reminder of you and your generosity to so many over the years and your blog
Kathie

blueberrylane said...

Thanks for taking the time to blog what is happening in your life. It is always interesting and a privilege to hear about others. Looking forward to when you retire down south, I am sure that will be fun to read !

Anonymous said...

1111 posts - amazing. And what a generous giveaway. I can't wait to get some of the Nancy Drew fabric that is coming out in November. I work with 5th graders and am always tickled to see that some kids still read Nancy Drew. With 1111 posts, you are like the Carlyn Keene of bloggers!

Dj said...

Congratulations on your milestone! As I have a friend due in December, I need charm packs for a baby quilt. Thanks for the chance!

mascanlon said...

You are the sweetest of bloggers and always so generous. As someone said, it's a pleasure to read all about the everyday things we all sort though over the years. Thank you for letting us share the happy times and the not so happy ones. Hope knowing you have friends out here who think of you helped in the not so good times. I laugh too at everyone who complains...they should get a life! Congratulations on # 1111! For me? I would splurge on a bolt of Kona snow. I just got that Marmalade kit (and severL others truth be told) this week.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Wow! That is quite a milestone! Congrat's on 1111!!!! Please don't stop! I love visiting. :-) If I was so lucky, I would buy a kit. I've never bought a complete kit from the FQS and have always drooled over them.. Blueberry Crumb Cake, Bordeaux, oh! What a great dream! Thanks for the chance. :-)

dortha said...

Congratulations. I have enjoyed reading your blog. Seeing the things you got done and the things you didn't. Reminds me of me, having big plans. Keep the posts coming.

Cathy said...

Love the number - 111. Over six years of your life in quilting. Congratulations! I haven't seen the photos from Market yet but there is sure to be a new fabric collection that i MUST have - a fat quarter stack or layer cake and jelly roll, and that's what I would buy.

Leah S said...

Lots of ones! I would probably buy some fat quarter kit. I also really think you should pick me because my birthday is in November. ;)

Kim West said...

Congrats! I think we both started blogging nearly the same time and i dont have near the amount of posts that you do (part of the reason is i lost a bit with a website crash though).

I would buy some moda bella's to keep in the stash. I usually keep about 3 yards each of the bleached white and ivory, but I would like to expand on the pallet.

Thanks for the chance to win.

dianne said...

ha ha ha - i don't even have to go to FQS to know what i would spend money on - it would be Marmalade, for sure (we just talked about this, didn't we?!?) ... although i'm not above groveling, i am happy to know that i don't HAVE to - i read your blog because i ENJOY hearing what you have to say ... i DO find it quite amusing that people don't just click away (or choose to not click in the first place) when they don't like what they read ... there are people in Blogland who annoy the hell out of me - but only once or twice cuz when i get annoyed, i don't go there anymore, not even to win a free sumpin sumpin...

anywho, happy eleventy-eleventh post - and give Penny a scritch behind the ears for me...

Melissa said...

I'd HAVE to spend money on Me & My Sister's Good Morning. I would love to make it up using their Suburban pattern - then I'd have a whole neighborhood to call my own.

Congratulations on 1111!

Linda said...

Congrats on all those posts!!!!
Visited FQS+I'd select a couple of the Kona solids Pure Elements FQ Bundles for sure! Thanks to You+FQS for sharing a Great Giveaway!

Renegade Quilter said...

many congrats on sticking with it and reminding us all that we are 'normal'.
$100 at The Fat Quarter Shop - I would spend it all on Salt Water - Tula's new line. I hope they get in that pre-cut hexi quilt kit. I think I need that.
thanks for the giveaway!!!!

Kelly Grace said...

Congrats on the posts! Wish I had stuff to post on my blog! No time for quilting with a 2 year old! Love the Fat Quarter Shop! I'd get a backing for my turning twenty quilt - something fallish with leaves. Definitely Moda Marbles and maybe some tone-on-tones.

Brenda said...

Congrats on 1111! Keep it up - I really look forward to seeing your posts. If I won, I think I would add to my charm pack collection with several new fabrics- Marmalaide, California Girl, Noteworthy, and many others.

Doodlebug Gail said...

Congratulations on post # 1111 - what an achievement! My current list from FQS has some Marmalade, and Avalon on it - I'd have hard time choosing one or the other.

Anonymous said...

Vicky, 1111 is awesome! You know I don't blog, but follow yours faithfully. If I won, I would probably buy a new kit, a book and backing fabric.

Suburban Stitcher said...

I think that I would use the money toward backings...always can use those!

Carol said...

I'm willing to grovel. Congratulations on 1111 posts. I may not have read them all, but I've read most of them and I'm glad you've found your way back to quilting recently (or almost back). Best wishes on the next 1111 posts. I've had my eye on the Double Chocolat kit by 3 Sisters.

Suzy said...

Wow, 1111 posts! Congratulations! I'm a big Fig Tree Quilts fan and I'm coveting a bolt of Bella Solids in Snow. Thanks so much for sharing your quilts and your life with all of us! :o)

Lindah said...

Wow! 1111! That's a lotta posting. As a reader, I appreciate your faithfulness in posting thru the hard times as well as the good times. Backings and blenders would be my treasure. It is hard to find those in my area. I am hooked on prints, but blenders add depth. hmmm, 1111 --11/11 is coming soon.
I'm really having trouble with the word verification --maybe 7th time will work? Nope. Try again..

Ruthie said...

One Winter's Night Quilt Kit by Jocelyn Ueng has caught my eye.

Alexis said...

Congratulations on your blog accomplishment! I would love to get a bunch of Marmalade.

Ballardquilter said...

You certainly have blogger stamina.

AnnieO said...

My gosh, that is a lot of posts! Glad you've stuck with it for these many years and all that has happened IRL (in real life)--and I hope to read all you have to say in future years.

As for the FQS gift certificate, I would load up on Essential Dots in all my favorite colors, as well as tons of background prints of every shade. I never seem to have enough of those! Thanks for the very generous giveaway prize!

ledamewood said...

I am amazed, what a feat and how wonderful for those of us who follow and read your blog. And, what a generous giveaway. What would I buy? Neutrals, shirtings, and dots..yes, I'd probably go way over $100, but what fun it would be.

katie z. said...

Thank you for continuing to blog, even when you had your own personal trolls to bring you down. I have always enjoyed seeing your large fabric purchases, as that's something I never get to do and I'm glad you get to!

I would buy fat quarter bundles of Kona or some fun line I just think is pretty!

dortha said...

I congratulate you on your blog feat. I so enjoy reading your posts and seeing pictures of Penny. Keep them coming.

Laura in IA said...

I have no idea how I would ever choose and there is absolutely nothing I need, but boy would I sure give it a try.
Maybe when I see what others are looking for I will have to have some too. LOL

Meghann said...

Congrats on your 1111 post :) I enjoy reading your blog and want to thank you for such a wonderful give away!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Congratulations on reaching such an amazing milestone. I have always loved FQS's kits, but never have been able to purchase one. I Love French General Fabric, and they currently have a pattern Debonaire using that fabric. I also love Accentuate the Positive, but not sure they are still offering a kit. Thanks so much for your very generous giveaway. Looking forward to the next 1111 posts :-)

hadacres said...

I does amaze me that folks still seem to have to wreck havoc even when they say they don't like something. Ah human nature, who knew.
Well did a little browsing/shopping over at FQS & let me tell you chocolate in any form will just jump in my basket, go figure.
I would say the Double Chocolate Quilt kit would have to be my choice if I should be so lucky.
Pretty amazing how time does fly.
Thanks & congradulations on your 1111th post.

Sharon said...

I for one love reading your blog. I know how life can be sometimes and I like how you always keep it real. If I won the gift certificate, there are so many things I want! I have had a few years of financial trouble and my fabric buying has been greatly curtailed. One thing I know for sure is to buy several different colors of Kona solids. I love that stuff and wish I had some in every color!

Kathryn said...

I'm a Julie Herman fan, and recently bought her book Skip the Borders. I'd buy some fabric to make one or more quilts from that book, and then get her Hex and More ruler and try some of her patterns using that tool. Thanks for the giveaway, and for having an interesting blog to read. I follow you via Google reader.

Jill said...

That is a lot of posts! I think I need some kona basics. I would love to order a bolt of kona snow. I am using it more and more and it would be good to have on hand. Great giveaway!

Quilt Monkey said...

Oh my gosh you are so generous! And you've done much better than me - I've also been blogging since 2006 and I think I've posted about half that many times! Love the FQS - I've had my eye on the London prints and I'm sure they'll be gone soon. And probably a bolt of background fabric. Can't have too many of those! Thanks for everything!

jillquilts said...

Congratulations on having so much to say!! :)

I think I would probably buy some Bella solids... I have a quilt I need to make. :)

cook said...

Wow 1111 seems like so many. I feel like I know you , actually I do know Jane, she was my caramel supplier. Maybe she remembers? I loved hearing about all your wonderful purchases and how some people were so envious. Made for interesting blogging! I would buy anything Marmalade. Love that line from Camille! Thanks and keep blogging please. Janet

Aleta said...

Congrats on your epic number of posts! There is so much beautiful fabric to choose from! I would probably buy a fat quarter bundle, but which one? I like the look of Cinnamon Spice by Blackbird designs.

Anonymous said...

I would like to thank you for introducing me to the FQS. They are so nice!!! I have also taken your lead and started keeping track of how much fabric I use during a year. It doesn't make much of a dent!! Mary O'Neil

suz said...

Congratulations on so many posts. I've enjoyed them all! I came across your blog when you were "keeping inventory" - totally cracked me up. I love FQS and it's really sweet of you to give us this very generous opportunity to win. I think I'd use some of it to buy Minick & Simpson's new Indigo fabric. I've been wanting to make my son a triple Irish chain quilt in blues and I love the sneak peaks I've seen of this line.

Gwen said...

After I read the FQS newsletter yesterday I made up my mind! Deleted an earlier indecisive post! I would use it on the Flower Girl kit by Bonnie and Camille! No doubt in my mind today!

Ann-Mari said...

I love reading your posts about quilting and life. I feel I know you a little bit too.
What would I buy at FQS? I have been saving to buy solid red fabric. I have bought solid white, and with the red I would start on making red and white quilts.

Sarina said...

Congratulations! Thanks for sharing all your thoughts and ideas with us. I don't know exactly what I'd get. My wish list changes constantly! And market makes it even harder to choose things! But it'd probably be pre-cuts of some sort.

dokiquilts said...

Congratulations! i think i like reading your posts because you're such a great shopper :-) a whole bolt of fabric at a time--sigh :-) i know you work hard and therefore you get to play hard too--very cool. i love all the lakehouse fabrics but they rarely go on sale so i would indulge in fat quarters in as many bundles as possible!

Louise said...

My first with you on your blog. Congratulations on your success. I admire so much all of the time and work you gals devote to your blogs for our enjoyment. Really love the ones with tutorials? Been quilting over 35 years but there is always something new to learn. I would probably choose omething light and happy to work on in our upcoming rainy season!

Vicki said...

WOW! Congratulations on 1111 posts... quite an achievement! I've enjoyed your blog tremendously! and, oh my gosh you are so generous with a gift to the Fat Quarter Shop. (Be still my heart!) Thanks so much for the chance to win...and keep those posts a-comin'!

Baskets Of Quilts said...

Congratulations! What a huge accomplishment! If I had $100 bucks at the fat quarter shop I think I would buy a bolt of kona cotton white. I know it's a kinda boring thing but I use it all the time!

Anonymous said...

Congratulations! I love reading your blog. I love the Fat Quarter Shop too. I would probably choose Toasted by Jo Morton.

Charmaine said...

Congratulations! I like your blog and I'm glad you're going to continue writing it for all us quilters out here in blogland :) If I win, I'll probably choose a kit. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Deb said...

Congratulations on 1111 posts! I've followed you for quite some time and always love to read your posts, especially since you have a doxie like me! There wouldn't be any problem with me spending $100, but I need 5 1/4 yards of Little Black Dress fabric for a quilt back, and need to get some FQs of Jo Morton fabric, as well as a another back for a batik quilt I'm working on right now. Thanks for the chance.

ChristineG said...

Congrats! I would purchase Hoffman's Peppermint Holiday Batiks yardage. I recently received the FQ bundle from FQS and I want more. I have a weakness for batiks and these are so me. Love reading your blog.

Kate said...

Wow! Congratulations on 1,111 blog entries! I am busy pulling fabrics for Bonnie Hunter's new mystery, (YAY!) and I'd love to buy a nice hunk of gray (I found one I really like at FQS called "Hug Me Gray Aged Scrollwork" that I'd never seen before! Love it! THEN, I'd add some stash in colors where I'm running low, due to all the quilting I was inspired to do this summer thanks to blogs like yours! Thanks for keeping us entertained!

sweetbabies00 said...

1111! Excellent number. If I won I would buy a ton of pre-cuts. So many cute ones out now. I just bought some sale fabric the other day. They deliver so fast and it's always packaged so cute!
