WHY WAIT? GIVE AWAY!!! edit: plus one more!

EDIT: Did anyone notice this little symbol on my blog? We are having a give away for their new site too! Check out Sarah's blog! We will all love this new Sewn up site! I will choose a winner from all your comments for my personal give-away and one more for the Sewn up! I will tell you later what the Sewn up winner gets....I am still planning!!!!! Thanks for all your comments!
HELLO EVERYONE! This is my 97th post...why wait for the 100th to have a GIVE AWAY; what's a few more posts more or less? So here is how it goes.
1. Leave a comment about your most favorite blog, the one you go to when you need a "pick-me-up" doesn't have to be mine... it doesn't have to be about quilting....I have my favorite too! I'll tell you later what it is! (I want to make a list of fun places to visit, I will share the list later!)
2. Tell something about yourself we don't already we can get to know you better!

3. Visit Moda Bake Shop and see what date the post was for the Triple Irish Flower Quilt above....because that is the PRIZE! One of you lucky people will get my pretty Triple Irish Flower Quilt!!! (you need to scroll down to the end of the post)

Thank you for visiting my blog the past 7 months, it has been such a fun place to meet wonderful people. I remember the first time I saw someone have a give-away for the 100th post and thinking, "100 posts, is that really possible, would I have enough to say for 100 posts?" Well, it has happened because of you and your just keeps the blogging world going 'round!
p.s. Yes I will ship internationally.

Hi Sheri...there is no date that I can see on Moda Bake Shop...or I'm missing it. It is after the Apron and I saw it on your post about May 11th. I've loved it from the first time I saw it and would be over the moon to win this quilt! There are many favorite blogs I visit and wouldn't want to offend anybody. I've got several listed on my sidebar. I think for decorating I would go with Karen at Liberty Star (used to be The Yellow Farmhouse). But then I go over to Anne at Cottons & Wools, then there is Darlene's, Wendy's, Karen' list is so darned long. Not to mention yours!!
Something about myself you want to know...I absolutely hate December birthdays and would switch mine to a summer one if it were so easy. On a positive note..I love to surprise people when they least suspect it. It gives me a good warm fuzzy feeling.

Southern Gal said...

I love Simplicity which is how I got to your site! I also love Pioneer Woman.

I got married young (17) and have been married 28 years. My oldest got married on the 16th of May. My second graduated high school two weeks later and I have a 7 year old!

May 12, 2009 and can I say I love your MAD Quilting Skillz?

Meridee said...

Date: Tuesday, May 12th, 2009
I loved the quilt when you posted it. I thought that one day I would have to make one. But I'd much rather win yours! I'm a retired school teacher who has taken up quilting only recently. One of my favorite blogs is my daughter's. It's funny and she posts cute pictures of my grandkids on it. Mmmboppin.


Sandy's Show & Tell Quilts said...

One of my favorite blogs is: We often forget that our troubles are small compared to others.

The date is Tuesday May 12, 2009.

I am new to Block Swaps and thank goodness that "Autn Pitty Pat's" have a "Swap Etiquette". I need to make amends to one of my swab organizers.

Sue said...

Tuesday May 12 is the timestamp! What a great quilt. I just returned to sewing after a long hiatus. The reason for my return? My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter. I love making things for her, it like giving her a hug! One site I love is ONE PRETTY THING. She does all the work looking all over the web for great ideas. The website addy is

Thanks for a chance at your beautiful quilt!

Lois0607 said...

This is a wonderful quilt. Thanks so much

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

The Pioneer Woman is my pick me up. She is the one that got me started on all this blogging stuff :-) I LOVE this quilt. I remember when it first appeared (on Tuesday the 12th) on Moda Bake Shop and thinking I NEED to make this quilt. What a GREAT giveaway! Thanks. Love your blog :-D

Barbara Myltschenko said...

Hey therw Sheri! My pick me up blog is I love her stuff, she's new to this like me, and well we have a son the same age to I can totally relate.

Something about myself that you don't know. Well you don't know anything so that should be hard . . . just kidding! I've been playing a prank on my co-worker by taking away her pen everytime she turns around and placing it someplace new, she's done this to me with another object for months so I'm getting back!

I think that the date of the post for the Moda Bake Shop was the 11th or 12th of May? I can't check the website is down this morning.


chermonblie said...

Hi Sheri,

I always visit MommyCoddle for a pick me up. She always manages to keep a positive attitude no matter what life throws at her and reading her blog just makes me relax a bit.

The quilt is absolutely beautiful. On May 12 I had traveled to Florida for work with my toddler and I remember seeing this quilt and thinking how I hope to be so adventurous in my quilting to attempt something like that one day.

Something about me... Last month my family became debt free! :) Even though my husband isn't working much we managed. What a GREAT feeling!

Doris said...

I can't believe it..I was just on Moda Bake Shop Tuesday admiring this quilt and NOW I have the chnace to win it!!!!! It was posted on May 12, 2009. I'm a blog junkie thanks to my non-sewing sister-in-law who got me hooked on reading and then I had to start my own! Something about me, I jumped out of an airplane in October 2005 to help celebrate my baby sister's 30th birthday.

I have lots of favorite blogs, one of my faves is A Dress A Day. Erin McKean writes in an intelligent, pithy style that just makes me wish I knew her in real life so we could have witty conversations about nonsensical topics.

Thanks for this chance...even though I can't believe you are giving this away!


Stephanie said...

I really did check...May 12. About me...I write in my cookbooks with a sort of grading system and date recipe was tried. Happy faces or sad faces. The really bad ones get words too! Well I love a sense of humor so I have more than one favorite: Terri at Purple and Paisley, Amy at Mrs. Schmenkman Quilts, and Jodie of Ric Rac. These ladies never fail to give me a giggle.

Linda Stubbs said...

Nice to meet you Sheri,
The date is May 12th.

I enjoy blog surfing...... lots of fun places out there. I just found you and will put you on as a favorite!

Something about myself is that I was born and raised in Alaska for 20+ years, moved to Kansas and live on a farm.
Your quilt is so beautiful. If I don't win, it is one I will make!
Thank you for having a giveaway!
Linda Stubbs

Quilt Hollow said...

Stacey said...

I also love the moda bake shop site. then all my blogs on my blogroll i like to read daily. i have been married for 9 years and we have 4 kids. i just signed up for a class applique and coloring it's next week, i cannot wait!!

free indeed said...

A blog I visit very often is Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara. She has sew alongs, BOMs, recipes and is quite funny! Always something going on with her.

About myself...I absolutely LOVE hanging laundry! Of all household chores, laundry is my fave, and I can't wait for winter to be over to hang laundry outside on the line. During winter, I hang in over a vent...we do have a dryer if you are wondering...I use it for towels and undies...and baby clothes (many moons ago).

That post was dated the 12th of May. And a triple irish chain is on my to do list...I was just going to cut up scraps till I had enough, but there's something about 30's colors and irish chains..they just go together! I would LOVE to win your quilt!!!!!

Sherry said...

Hi I can not enter but I have to say that I just love all the blogs that I visit. Is one better then the other sometimes yes. But when I do need to create something I look at all kinds of blogs and I find what I'm looking to make. So to say one blog does it I would have to say no. So to all you great bloggers THANKS for taking the time so we can all learn and create. SOmetimes I learn more from you bloggers they I do at my quilt shops.

Ginny Worden said...

Hi Sheri, I love the quilt, and I visit Moda Bake Shop every once and awhile, so on May 12th was your lovely creation. My blogs to go to when I need a pick me up are Cottons n Wools and Quilt Hollow.Although lately Humble Quilts has also helped. Have a good day.

Kaaren said...

You can count me in, Sheri. Your quilt is spectacular.

My favorite blogs are listed on my blog and I try to visit them all at least once a day. They are all my favorites!

I'm a hockey freak! I love to watch it and subscribe to the NHL Network so I can watch/listen EVERY night of the week while I stitch. When the season is over...which will be within the next week) I go through withdrawls til the exhibition season starts in September.

The date is May 12th and I loved it then when I saw it and still do.

May 14th!
I don't think I could make that so I didn't star it, but I sure think I could win it!!
Something about me not on my blog. I am a 38 and sewing for fun. I am just getting into quilting and love to cook! Oh yeah, I am Irish too!! favorite blogs are Pioneer Woman cooks and Moda Bake shop! I have a ton on my blog too!

onlymehere said...

My favorite blog is Rhonda's at Scooterblu's whimsy. She always brightens my day with her words and beautiful home. She's become a very good friend that I met through blogging. Something about myself....hmmmm....I'm a medical transcriptionist by profession! My hands are always busy with that and quilting among other things! The post on the quilt at the Moda Bake Shop is May 12th at the end of your tutorial. I love this quilt and have printed off the tutorial!! Thanks for letting me enter your give-away!! Cindy

onlymehere said...

P.S. Rhonda's address at Scooterblu's whimsy is :) (silly me to not put that in my comment before!)

La Gitan Mystique said...

Congratulations on your 97th Post. What a great accomplishment.

I have so many blogs that are all truly favorites of mine and so
Many bloggers who give me inspiration and brighten my every day.

One blog I like to visit is TDIPT. A group blog.

I am a “tomboy” at heart, and love all things related to Camping, fishing, dirt bike riding and so much more. I was voted “most daring” (in a good way) when I was in school (years ago). Yep, made my mother proud since she always wanted me in a dress and I was her “little girl.”

I also love quilts! No, I’m not just saying that because of your prize. I love quilts as my grandmother was always quilting. I have a n old vintage (antique by now) quilt that is finally coming apart at the seams and I will not get rid of it. But boy oh boy does it need replaced.

I also love aprons, yep, my grandmother always made them too and had one on almost 24/7.

The Triple Fish Flower Quilt Post was on Tuesday, May 12, 2009.

I won’t deny how badly I want to win! I love the Triple Fish Flower Quilt and would Cherish it forever and pass it down to my son. (Everything is crossed in hopes of being the lucky winner)!

Thanks for holding a sweet giveaway. How fun! Please sign me up.



Millie said...

I have so many blogs I love to visit....too many to list over here. But I love the Moda Bake Shop and has made so many of their patters. I love your Irish Chain quilt published on May the 12Th....another quilt I like to make one of these days.

PS said...

Hello Sheri...I just found your blog through another blog - there are so many great blogs and now I've added yours to my list. I like to go to Crazy Mom Quilts to see her quilts and sewing and her tutorials and she posts often.
I live in Wisconsin and like to quilt and sew, although sometimes I spend too much time reading blogs! but such good inspiration.
I saw the date on Moda Bake Shop of the quilt to be May 14, 2009.
Love the quilt - congratulations on your almost 100th blog and thanks for the chance to win the beautiful quilt. Have a great day.

Susan said...

Tuesday, May 12, 2009! I loved this quilt when I saw it at Moda Bake Shop and printed the directions off immediately! I haven't had a chance to make it yet though and if I won it...

It's a tough job to pick a favorite blog...I have many! One of my favorites though is Karen Griska's Selvage blog.

Something about me...I'm afraid of the dark! Everyone jokes that our house is always lit up like a Christmas tree.

Hello Sheri - I came to you from one of my favorite blogs, Mary at Quilt Hollow but there are so many other favs (Carol at Brown Quilts, Wendy @ Snippets of a Quilter, Nanette @ Freda's Hive - just to name a few)and I come to your blog for inspiration, as well.

May 12th was the date you posted your Triple Irish Flower Quilt - delightful prize!

About me - it's simple - "Quilting puts a smile on my face and a song in my heart".

PS said...

Hello again, Sheri - even though I thought the quilt was posted May 14 I was reading how others said it was posted May, I went back to Moda Bake Shop and saw I misread the 14th was for the apron above, the quilt was indeed the 12th. Am I allowed to "revise" my original post! thank you.

Christine said...

Patricia said...

I just ran onto your blog for the first time today. It's great!!
I love reading Freda's hive. I live just one town away from her. I saw your quilt and think it is the most adorable thing. Even if I don't win, I want to make one. It was posted on Tuesday, May 12. Something very few people know about me is that I play the drums (not drum set, just concert type things.) I was in the marching band and I married the drum major. I don't have a blog, but you can contact me at Thanks, Love Tricia

Carrie P. said...

Hey Sheri, before I forget the date of your quilt on Moda Bake shop is May 12. Congrats to both.
My favorite blog is Northstar Cycles. It is a blog that I visit to see what my son is up.
Something about me you don't know: I like to go camping.

Sue Cahill said...

I see May 12, 2009 as the date on your spectacular quilt, what a beauty! I can't believe you would give it away.

I think my favorite blog, though I enjoy many, is Quilt Taffy. So much inspiration and lots of humor. And Giveaways on Thursdays!!!

I am a descendant of the last passenger to leave the Mayflower, it is actually engraved on his tombstone that he was the last. The family joke has always been is that he was sleeping off a drunk down in the hold and stumbled out after everyone else had been long gone!

Thanks for the cjance to win an over the top gift.

Linda said...

Wow what a generous gift. I'd love to win this one since my husband is Irish. He came over when he was seven. It's sooo beautiful.

Gabriele - Fadentante said...

My favorite blog is ""

Something about me is that I love Disneyworld. I wish I could be there !!

I wish I have luck to win your giveaway.

Hugs, Gabriele

Chris said...

Hi Sheri
My favourite blog today is
It is an uplifting blog, raises my spirits on dull & dreary days!
I don't think you know anything about me so this is the easy part! I'm addicted to drying my washing on the clothesline outside - have even been known to go round the house to find washing so as not to waste a beautiful drying day!
Your beautiful quilt was posted on Moda Bakeshop on
Tuesday May 12 2009

Love reading all the comments & finding out stuff! Going to have to look up some of the blogs too!

Nancy said...

I don't know if I have a favorite blog, but a funny one that I frequent is Cake Wrecks- very entertaining.
Something that most people don't know about me is that I like to eat peanut butter straight from the jar. Chuncky is preferable. This is a habit that comes from my college days.
I subscribe to Moda Bake Shop and I remember when you posted this quilt, but I had to go back and look a the date, May 12th. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!

sndy1 said...

Loved your quilt when it appeared on the bake shop (5-12) and I am even more thrilled for the chance to win it! I really enjoy reading Camille's Simplify blog.

kynomi said...

The blog that got me started (and excited) about piecing quilt tops was Quiltville. It's still a favorite. Since I'm new to all this, it's easy to tell you something you don't know about me. I'm getting ready to retire and look forward to more quilt stuff in my near future! The date for the Moda posting is May 12 (also on May 14). Beautiful quilt.

Dona Quijota said...

Hello Sheri,
1. This is one of my favorite blogs:
Amandajean is always working on nice projekts. And she likes the same colors as I do. It´s alway an inspiration for me.
2. I started patchworking and quilting at the age of 37. And there are so many quilts I want to make, and it´s so less time to do. So I have to quilt till I´m 100 years old.
3. The post is writen on Tuesday, Mai 12, 2009. It´s a wonderful work!

Greetings from Germany
Dona Q. / Andrea

P.S. I´m sorry for my horrible english. It´s rosty.

Ruth B said...

May 12, 2009!! My fav blog is Moda Bake Shop! Love the designs and designers and the tutorials are awesome. Something about myself....I am moving when we sell our house. I need to have a garage sale, clean my house, finish my son's wedding gift, finish by round on my round robin, make a gift bag of goodies for my Christmas in July shop and all this has to be done in JUNE!

shauna said...

The date of your post on Moda Bake Shop is May 12,2009. I really like this little quilt and noticed it on Moda Bake Shop when it was originally posted. There are so many great blogs out there that it is hard to choose just one. One that I check every day is A Quilting Life.

summersadie said...

Oh my goodness what an amazing giveaway! There's no way I could pick a favorite crafty blog, so my favorite non-crafty blog is Pioneer Woman. The energy that woman has is incredible, and I don't know where she finds all the hours in the day to do what she does. Something about me....Almost overnight I've become a swap-a-holic. I started my first one 3 weeks ago, and am now in 4! You posted the tutorial on May 12th...I remember because I bookmarked it, I loved it so much! But see with all these swaps, I won't have the time to make my own, so I really need to win yours. :)

Vickie E said...

1. My favorite pick me up blog? hilarious
2.Your quilt appeared on May 12th.
3. In college I spoke French, Russian and Spanish.

miniaturequilter said...

Hi!! The date is May 12th.
The quilt is very pretty, would love to win it!!!
My favorite blog is quilting cowgirl because she makes me smile!! But i have many others i like to read like Quilt Hollow -which is how i found your giveaway!
Something about oldest will start college this fall and my youngest preschool!

Jana said...

Love your blog! But if you want someone else's, then I get a kick out of Red Geranium Cottage Read today's post from her. What a laugh!

Something your don't know about me...ummm...everything but I live in Wyoming and just became an empty nester.

And your quilt was showcased on May 12, Tuesday. It is gorgeous!

kristie sessions said...

WHat?!?! You are giving away this beauty?! I love it!
the moda post for this quilt was May 12, 2009.
my favorite blog to visit is Nicole Heady's (card making queen!)

and one thing you don't know about me is that currently I am about 7 weeks prego with baby # 3!!! But don't tell anybody cause its still a secret. I guess only a family secret, since all of cyberspace knows about it now!

PattiCakes said...

I would LOVE a chance to win this beautiful quilt!

My name is Pat, and I live in Pennsylvania. Kinda reminds me of that old children's game: "My name is Pat; I live in Pennsylvania and I pin pieces." This is my first time visiting your blog -- sent over by Quilt Hollow.

Something you may not know about me? I have a Featherweight named "Baby" (because she's my baby!) that my wonderful husband gave to me last year for our anniversary. He found it in a flea market. Is he the best or what!

Your post on the Moda site was done on May 12, 2009.

My favorite blog is done by a very dear friend of mine, Kimberly Einmo. She's a quilty author, inventor of spiffy rulers, a Mystery Quilt designer, international teacher, and a great blogger. Her chatty posts and wonderful pictures never fail to brighten my day. Because she has lived most recently in Germany, her posts have also widened my world.

secondofwett said...

The date that I saw for that gorgeous quilt was May 12th. I really enjoy Tea Time and Roses...soothes my soul.....I have parented over 25 children in the almost 36 years that my darling and I have been married! I would surely enjoy that beautiful quilt!

HELLO!!!! I LOVE THIS QUILT!!! I love so many blogs but one i check every day (and usually late at night because that is when she does most of her posts) is ... PS I QUILT! Rachel has awesome ideas and it's just a great blog!

One thing about me ... hmmm ... i work from home and love it; i ride a harley and love it; and i started quilting 1 1/2 years ago and am addicted!

Your post in MBS was on May 12th and i just loved your quilt back then and i think it's wonderful that you are giving it away!

Hi Sheri, what a lovely giveaway! On the Moda bake shop site you posted it on May 12th!

I hope I will be the lucky winner!

One of my favorite blogs is
She is a longarm quilter and very inspiring quilts!

What you don't know about me....I have a degree in clothing design, but really fall in love with quilting.

Happy sewing!

Zlaty :)

limpingalong said...

What a beautiful quilt! I love the pattern and the colors. I'd love to win it.
Let's see -- my favorite blog.
Well, I enjoy reading Coolrue. Doug Haskell has been running an antique tool quiz for me. He and his wife moved to Ireland to retire and he is doing a wonderful re-do on an old house/barn.
Tied for first place is "We Almost Made It," a private blog written by my oldest daughter. I learn so much about her life through reading her blog. She lives in another state and we don't get to visit too often.
Third in the first place tie is "Angels" the blog written by my GS. He is awesome. It is also private.
Hummmm, I guess the others in first place are the many quilting blogs -- oh, drat, there just isn't a way to pick just one!

Something you don't know about me?
I taught photography for 14 years at a community college.

Bunny said...

Hi! What a wonderful generous gal you are. May 14th 2009 is the date that the Irish chain was posted. Wow how can I pick a blog that is my favourite there are so many of them. I like mine LOL because it gives me a pick up when I go to see the wonderful comments that are written and their words are so very inspiring for me to stitch on.
How could I not say I love your blog for being so very generous. Thanks so much and will be happy with whomever wins this wonderful quilt.

Kim said...

Hi Sheri, your MBS Quilt is one of my most very favorite projects on Moda Bake Shop. You posted it on May 12, 2009. It's apparent that me and lots of other women would love to win your quilt. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

Lori Kay said...

My name is Lori. I love to quilt and make garments. My favorite blog is wardroberefashion. I found your quilt on the Moda web site with a date of 5/12/09 - and it's a fabulous quilt!

Chris@Cats On My Quilts said...

Love that quilt!
The date was Tuesday, May 12, 2009

I have a lot of favorite blogs but one of my favorites, and the first one I got hooked on, was Daisy Cottage. I just love that little house and love all the happy colors in it.

About me-I was once in a bowling league in Denver, CO with John Denver's Mother.

Sure hope I win!

Sherri said...

Oh I soo love your quilt...I can't believe you can give it away! The MBS post was May 12, 2009...and blogs...well Miss Red Geranium Cottage always has a funny tale to tell...and I like Confessions of a Pioneer Woman as well...usually some great humor there! But I don't really have a favorite blog...I love all the ones I read for different reasons! And something about me...I love the ocean and would live on the beach if only I could afford a beach house!!!

Cindy said...


1. My favorite blog is Pioneer Woman. I love her quirky sense of humor and her recipes.

2. Something about moi... I work in a longarm quilting studio and I am a hairdresser.

3. May 12.

Awesome giveaway!!


Arlene said...

Hi Sheri!
The date on the Moda Bake Shop is Tuesday, May 12, 2009.
My favorite blog is Quiltville. I've found so many patterns there to get ideas for my Prayers and Squares quilt group that I started at our church. We make prayer quilts for sick parishioners. This has made my quilting take on an entirely new meditative dimension. It's very rewarding.

Cynthia said...

Wow, I love that quilt, posted at Moda Bakeshop on June4, 2009. I have it on my list to make someday. I have recently moved from Utah to Florida and have tons of free time to sew. I am taking advantage of it. I am struggling to find quilting friends who live the same type of quilting that I do. I will be an empty nester in 3 years and am struggling with that. Your blog certainly inspires me, but the one I credit the most is my friend Lori Holt. I love everything she does. When I'm feeling down, I will go to her blog and get a pick me up. http//
My daughter designed her blog, and my children's blogs pick me up also, but often make me miss them more! The lucky person who wins that adorable quilt, maybe it will be me!

Jeannette said...

Tuesday, May 12, 2009 This the date for the quilt posting. I have a long list of blogs I visit and spend to much time every day looking at them. I love but not in order
Fresh Figs
Cinderberry Stitches
Holly Blog
Hugs from Helen
I Have A Notion.
A liitle about me I love cooking mostly baking cakes and desserts when i have time.

Barb said...

I was actually the Moda Bake shop just the other day....and truly love that place. The May 12th posting was where I found the Triple Irish Flower Quilt. It is lovely. I love to go to, she is so funny, going through a rough spot right now but I am sure she will come out shinning. I am trying to think something of myself that would be interesting...I do have all sons but never wanted a daughter.....I got what I wanted but my husband always wanted a daughter. Wish I had one now to sew with and go shopping, I go shopping alone and know no other way. Now my husband goes grocery shopping with me. Thanks for having this giveaway. I also love your work and you blog...(no not brown nosing)....

Piecefulafternoon said...

Wow - when I began reading this post there were no comments - and after visiting the June 4 post on the Moda Bakeshope and coming back here - I find 65 commenst. That is a lot of traffic in a short time.

There are so many wonderful blogs but one that really blows me away is - she takes you on walks through the English countryside with lovely photos and text.

Something about me - hmmmm - I grew up in Sitka, Alaska, before Alaska was a state - it was quite primitive then - and fun for a kid. I made my first quilt for my doll when I was 7 - so she wouldn't be so cold. I don't have the quilt any more, but for some reason I have a pair of pink jammies that I also made for her at the same time.

Linda said...

May 12 is the date. Hmm something about me, when I was a teen and living in New Zealand I was a photographic model. My favorite blogs Darlene at Quiltingdaze and Stephanie at Loftcreations.

Sandy said...

Even though I follow a lot of wonderful crafting/quilting blogs out there, the one I go to for a pick-me-up or good chuckle is She is so funny...much younger then me, could be my daughter. But I remember feeling the same way about things with the home and family when my kids were growing up.
I hate to fly and would much rather travel by car and see the scenery.
Your gorgeous quilt was posted on May 12th at one of my all time favorite sites, Moda Bake Shop. Would love to be the one to cuddle it!!

Yeah! Congrats on reaching your 100th post!I remember when you did your first posts, and when I did mine. It doesn't seem like it was that long ago!
Okay, so your quilt was featured on Moda Bake Shop on May 12th.
I LOVE to go to V & Co. at
Also, The Lettered Cottage at
They both inspire me with their creativity, decor, V's humor, etc.
Somethine about myself that you don't know...
I want to get in shape soooo bad since we had our last baby but I am not motivated enough to exercise! I think it has something to do with staying up too late reading blogs and then being too tired to do anything physical the next day. Those darn, good, addicting blogs!

Comfort Joy Designs said...

I have many "most favorite" blogs: Mommie Daze ( where I can read up about my nephews. The Picky Palate has so many fun, delish meal ideas, and I have a huge list of craft blogs I gather inspiration from.

Cornfield Quilter said...

Hellow! I have Moda Bake Shop on my list of blogs that I check out almost every day. I printed out the instructions the day I saw it and put it on my "to do list" of quilt for our Quilt Ministry.
As far as my favorite blog, I have too many to mention. All these wonderful quilters are so unique in there on way I can't pick just one. As far as something about me that you might want to know, I will try anything once and the fun stuff twice. :D

Candace said...

Hi Sheri! All of the blogs on my sidebar give me a pickup - but if I must choose - only because she was the very first I ever read - PamKittyMorning! Seriously, though, I love them all!
Something folks might not know is that I was on the Martha Stewart Show once in and "Ask Martha" segement (before she went "away")!
Your quilt was on Moda Bake Shop on Tuesday, May 12th!
Thanks for an incredible giveaway!

Martina said...

such a wonderful quilt. And what a great give away! the date is May 12. 2009.
I love to go to crazy mom quilts. There is so much inspiration.
I newly started with needle turn application and I just love it so much. And sometimes I just have to read a good book to relax.

Love 2 Quilt said...

The date is May 12, 2009. I am new to blogging and am visiting lots of them. I jump around from one to another. I started with Jeane's page or quiltinjeanie. Your quilt is beautiful. Isn't it hard to part with it??

dotti white said...

I love that quilt--I would absolutely be so psyched to win it! Whoever wins it will be very lucky, though! I have only been blogging less than two months and I have so many blogs that I love so much. I almost always get an uplift from everyone. I really love Julie from Tattered Threads and Willing Hands. She makes me feel good.
As for something about me that all of my blogging friends might not know is that I also love music. I play the piano and sing in choirs and I also teach children's music at my church. I love the way that music inspires and comforts me.
The date of your post on the Moda Bake Shop is May 12th! That post truly made me smile!

mamabug said...

Hi Sheri, The date on Moda Bake Shop is May 12, 2009. And the quilt is amazing. You are quite generous to be giving it away. The fabrics are just darling and the quilting in the plain squares is beautiful! My two favorite blogs are Red Geranium and Pam Kitty Morning. These ladies make me smile and like all the same things I do :). So something about myself. I'm sewing a quilt for my daughters pending marriage in Oct. with the momo fabric wonderland. and I guess I think of myself as the cheerleader at work. We all need kind words spoken to us and a smile to be greeted by :) Thank you once again for a chance at this beautiful quilt and Happy almost 100 blog. Kathie

Deb said...

Hi Sheri, thanks for your generosity! One of my favourite blogs is One Red Robin...full of softie and fabric design goodness. I am not a quilter at all but my kids love quilts so I compromised with simple patchwork blankets with crooked seams!!! And your post date...May 12, 2009.

Christina D said...

Yes, Please enter me in the chance.
May 12, 2009 is the date on Moda Bake Shop.
I like to visit From the Strawberry Patch, Mrs. Goodneedle always inspires me.
I am reluctant to work on my best friends memory quilt. I am concerned I will mess it up.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful work.

Oh my, there are so many wonderful blogs that I go to. I love Daisy Quilts and Willowberry Designs, Elefantz, A Passion for Applique, The Painted Quilt, Geta's Quilting Studio, This That and The Other...there are many, many more. I am in absolute awe of the talent of so many from around the world! Since you don't know me at all, everything is discovery! I do a little quilting, knitting, spinning, cooking and gardening. I am a nurse but am presently not working because of some medical issues. I also don't have a blog because I am too busy reading others'!! Thank you for the chance to enter your contest! Your quilt is beautiful!

My favorite blog is one of several .. A Gathering of Thoughts by Rebecca. I love waking up in the morning to view what lovely message, creation or thought she may share. Rebecca has a soothing christian presentation of her thoughts. You'd love her. TTFN ~ Marydon

junglewife said...

My Google Reader says May 13 for the date on the quilt, but maybe that's because right now I'm living overseas (I do have a US mailing address!) and so May 12 in the States is May 13 here! :-)
One of my favorite fun websites is It's great for a good laugh!
Something about me? I'm from the US but currently living in Indonesia! It's quite a different experience, let me tell you! But boy, the Bali batiks I can get here... and for only $2/meter!!!

Marge said...

Love your blog. One of my favorite blogs is Cactus Needle. I saw your quilt (beautiful) on Moda Bakeshop on May 14, 2009. I started qulting when I retired. I always thought it was to hard and complicated to do when I couldn't devote a lot of time to it. Boy was I wrong. I love it and have realy enjoyed learning the craft. Sometimes you can only quilt for 5 minutes but it is 5 minutes well spent.

Carol said...

My favorite blog is my friend Vickie at I found your blog from her favorite list of blogs.
I have a blog, but don't post often so I am a really bad blogger!
Your quilt was showcased on May 12, 2009. I absolutely ADORE this quilt so hope I win this one.

Marge said...

Sheri, I have to make a correction to my comment. May 12, 2009 was the date Your beautiful quilt was posted on Moda Bake shop. I should have previewed it before I sent it. Favorite blog Cactus Needle. Something about me is I machine bind my quilts.

Anne said...

1. My favorite blog is amazing mae; she is always repurposing clothing and making it cute for her daughter to wear; and I like her upbeat attitude.
2. I am pregnant with my 3rd!
3.Tuesday, May 12, 2009
I would love to own this quilt! thanks for the chance!

Carol said...

Hello Sheri, my favorite blog that always has interesting pick me up quilt stuff is Quilt Hollow. In fact it was Quilt Hollow that told us about your blog giveaway. I bit about me? I'm obsessive about Moda pre-cuts, I buy way too many patterns, I'm crazy about polka dot fabrics, I like a lot of different fabrics - 30's, Kansas Troubles, Thimbleberries, Lakehouse, Heather Muldner fabrics and I like just about every fabric Moda makes. I've been told I'm an overachiever, well I just want to do it all ya know. I'm having fun trying to anyway. Love your quilt, I looked it up and it was posted in Moda Bake Shop on May 12th. BTW, I love Moda Bake Shop patterns.

Laurie said...

Hi Sheri!!
OK Here goes:
My fav blog is a friend's blog called Terry's Treasures.

Something about me is that I've always.always wanted to be a blonde, but have been too chicken to change my dark (almost black) hair's color. Maybe in another life??

The date of your gorgeous Triple Irish Chain post at ModaBakeShop (another favorite place I like to visit!!) was Tuesday, May 12, 2009. What a beauty of a quilt - thank you for even giving me a belief that I could win it!!

Stitched With Prayer said...

Hi, I saw your beautiful "Triple Irish Flower Quilt" on the Moda Bake Shop last month but I had to go back and check to find the was May 12th (this year). My favorite blog is one that will always really put a smile on my face, La Vie en Rosie, Carrie Nelson's Blog. She is always, always good for a pick me up and often good for a yummy, she makes me laugh. Really, really laugh. She is also very kind and caring and I love Miss Rosie and her 'rock' fetish too. Hmmm something about me you don't already know...well, okay, the quilt in the little thumbnail photo by my post is the very first quilt I ever made. Started it March of last year, finished it September of last year. It is a monstrous 114" by 117". Thank you so very much for a chance to have your beautiful quilt. Such a generous giveaway I'm just blown away by quilters as a group. Wonderful people that I am proud to be a part of. Good Luck Everyone!!! (by the way, my apologies for deleting my earlier comment, when I re-read it, I had repeated the same sentence 3 times and it made me crazy...I had to fix it. Hmmm...kind of like a quilt corner that won't quite match up, LOL)

Annelies Dease said... I would LOVE to win that quilt!!! I have lots of favorite blogs, but the one I got me into blogging is Nie Nie Dialogs. It always touched my heart and puts life in such perspective.
About me....just one grateful and happy person ( generally) but I spend all my time making baby things with the HOPE and BELIEF that someday my sweet married children will surprise me with a grand baby (G)!!!! XXX Annie

Krousegirl said...

Im Jenny from Fort Wayne, IN and I have 2 lovely children. I just got a new bicycle and I hope Im on it more than off this summer...still working on that baby weight gain!! I like going to quilting, but cool things, and usually a giveaway nearly every day. Thanks again

Rebecca said...

I think that the day this was posted was the first time I ever visited Moda Bakeshop! It was posted on May 12. It is such a pretty quilt! It is so generous of you to give it away! It is hard for me to pick a favorite blog, so I will name a few. I have really enjoyed Tallgrass Prairie Studio lately. I also really like inchmark and recently found Sew Inspired and really like that one!

Let's see, something about me- I have 3 degrees- a BA in chemistry, and AA in Culinary arts, and a master's in Food Science. I just finished my master's in December (right after my daughter turned 1) and I am pretty proud of myself!

Barb said...

Hi Sheri: I just LOVE your quilt and KNOW that the date is May 12, 2009 which was a Tuesday--because I fell in luv with it immediately!

My favorite blog is The Pioneer Woman--it has everything!

I have been teaching for 32 years and quilt as my relaxation--with two kids, a husband, a cat and a dog--I take every moment I can to relax. When school gets out for the summer, I want to begin my own blog!

Thanks for a chance for such a lovely quilt!

Deb said...

I like Moda Bake Shop because I need tutorials like they post. And I like Crazy Mom Quilts and Film in the Fridge because they both post such lovely quilts. The date for your quilt is May 12th. And something about me: I have 14 jelly rolls just waiting to be sewn, but I keep looking at them and wondering which to do first! Happy blogging anniversary and thank you for the giveaway!

Deb said...

Hi Sheri
Ive been reading your blog almost since the beginning. it makes me laugh everytime that your hair in your blog photo NEVER looks like it does in the ordinary everyday photos you take! I love that about you :) (hope you don't mind) My favourite blog (its hard to choose) is Amber at One Shabby Chick she just makes the most lovely quilts and out of the freshest funkiest fabrics. I so want to win this quilt because I loved it the moment you posted it. (Tuesday May 12) Please pick me. I follow your blog too!

Tasha said...

Sheila said...

The date is May 12.....right when I started following the Moda Bake shop site faithfully! The quilt is beautiful! I started my blog adventures with Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville, so I would have to say that is my first favorite blog. I keep the Moda Bake shop on my sidebar.....and I think I need to add Quilt Hollow also! :)

Pumpkin Patch Quilter said...

1) Ooh, well my favorite blog for the moment is - but I'm really loving the heavens out of the Moda Bake Shop blog!

3)Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Thanks for the chance to win, and getting me hooked on Moda (again)! :)

Jessica said...

My husband and I only dated 3 weeks before getting married. The rest of our courtship was long distance with only letters. My favorite "fun" blog is Little Birdie Secrets. Your Moda Bake Shop time stamp is Tuesday May 12th.

I hope I win--it's gorgeous!

Bowlby said...

Wow, what a generous giveaway! I'm Katie, and I live in Alabama with my husband and our 2-year-old son. I suppose those are things you don't know about me, because I've never been to your blog before!

Looks like the quilt was posted on May 12, 2009. It's a beauty!

My favorite pick-me-up blog....I'll go with

Rebecca P said...

Grandpa Cow's Family said...

May 12th
My favorite blog is read is my daughter's. It keeps me posted on my grandkids who live in California. I have to admit that yours is a close second and motivates me to sew again.
You know me well since we are fellow bowlers. See you either in the bowling alley or in the fabric.

Laine said...

Hi Sheri,
May 12th is the posting date for your quilt. I can't believe you are giving it away. I spend way too much time on the computer reading quilting blogs obviously because after reading some, actually most, of the comments here to see who everyones favorite blog was I would just say to myself "Oh I like that one too". There are just so many great quilting blogs but one of my favorites that I hadn't seen mentioned yet is Lynnette Anderson Designs. She designs alot of quilts with applique and stitching in and I really love doing that.

Michele said...

Tuesday, May 12

I love the quilt, especially the border you added

My favorite blog is the ImaginethePossibilities blog.

Something about me? I'm a huge Sesame Street Fan.

Cheri Cerny said...

Wow! What a great quilt. I would love to win but I know the "blog" chance... I keep entering "knowing" one day I WILL win, I WiLL...

My favorite blog is:

She went through a plane crash and survived!! I love the way she and her husband love each other. It gives me hope that there's more than just idiots left for me to marry...

I'll go with the May 12th date and tell you I LOVE moda bake shop as well.. That one is high on the list...

I do like I love the one about the cat walking through the just finished lacquered(?) floor...

Something about me... I can't figure out how to make my name on blogging just my first name. So, I have to be nice about everything on the web as it can be used against you (if you ever run for president, I guess...).

Calamity Jane's Cottage, Bonnie said...

Sheri, I copied this pattern as soon as I saw it on May 12 and I can't believe I could have a chance to win it.
As far as a blog that is my favorite, I couldn't even begin naming one. If you go to my blog list I have 335 saved and try to go to them all a little each day. They all bring inspiration, laughter and stories that make you cry even.
Something that I haven't shared on my blog is crocheting, really love to do this in the winter and I hate to mend...
Keep Stitchen'

Notjustnat said...

Thanks Sheri for your generosity for giving away that beautiful quilt.
Date: Tuesday, May 12th, 2009
I have many favorite blogs here are some of them:
Good luck with the next 100 posts

Sue said...

I can't pick one favorite, there are many, but one I really like is Betz White's.
Something about me, hmmm.... though quilting is my favorite obsession, I also enjoy woodcarving, sewing & genealogy.
May 12th is the date.

SandyN said...

Wow what a party and your giveaway, has to be the best present. (I also have a giveaway as well, but yours has to be the winner).. May was posted on Moda Bake shop..
The blogs I love to read... Ausralian patchwork designers...Lynette Anderson and Cinderberry Stitches (Natalie Lymer). I just got back into patchwork and I find that these two ladies are a inspiration to me.

Julie Isa said...

Hi Sheri! Love the quilt. It was on Moda's Bake Shop on May 12th. My favorite blog is...hmmm...probably V & Co., or maybe Happy Zombie. There are so, so many!!! Love your blog. Love your quilts! Hope your having a great week!!!

Z Family said...

HI THERE!! Im an avid reader of your blog since it went up on Moda Bake shop, my 'pick me up site'. Love looking at your new creations and I already printed out your tutorial the day it posted, on your site May11th and Moda's May 12th. Something about myself... I am being induced tomorrow... I am one week over due with a very comfortable little boy. Thanks for the chance :)

throuthehaze said...

may 12 is the date

something about me: my favorite craft is using perler beads to make videogame inspired creations

Jan said...

Mary at Quilt Hollow is my favorite blog. She is a genuinely nice person able to create such beautiful quilts, with seemingly little effort. Mary has directed me to really intesting blogs, opening me to this new and great world.
About me: I am a 10 year quilter, who has taken so many classes that I will probably never get all my UFOs done. But, classes are great and you always learn something new or make a new friend. I have the dream job of working at my favorite local quilt shop. We have just started a blog and as of this spring have gone online. My job is to cut kits and use the die cut machine. I also fill in out front when needed. Check us out: I have one miracle baby - now aged 15, and life is often drowning in her dramatics. So, reading blogs and keeping in touch with friends is how I maintain my sanity. People keep telling me she will be human again - sometimes I even believe them.
Your beautiful quilt was posted on Tuesday, May 12, 2009. I even have the Honey Bun roll bought with no idea what to do with it, and now I do! Check out Whisper by Sentimental Studios, it is so pretty rolled up but will look even better in a quilt.

Janet said...

How nice to come from quilt hollow even though it lessens her chances of winning. I have a lot of favourite blogs, for a pick me up it has to be dont look now, it's hard just naming one!

Dan and Karen said...

First of all, congratulations on your 97th post! I haven't been blogging very long so I'm a long ways from my 100th! That's amazing! I have to admit that I had no idea there were so many great quilting and crafting blogs out there, so I don't have a favorite yet. I only just discovered them, so I am still in awe! At the moment, my favorite blogs would be my two daughter's because they feature my grandchildren that I don't see often enough in person! Another favorite is the Nieniedialogues because she inspires me so much with her courage in the face of a horrible accident. Thank you for this giveaway and I hope luck is with me. I would jump for joy many times if I won this gorgeous quilt!

I was "talking" so much I almost forgot the rest of the questions!
2. I love walking on the beach! It relaxes me, rejuvinates me, makes me happy!
3. The date for your post is Tuesday, May 12, 2009

We're having a give away too...

Shasta said...

The date is May 12, 2009. I like to read Tanya's blog because she has quilty happenings, and I learn a lot of things about Japan. I am slow quilter. I try to spend time every day or at least every week doing something quilt related, but it takes me a long time to finish, since I only work a few minutes at a time.

Rachel said...

hmm...pick me up? It's not a blog, currently it's a nap while the kids are napping and a big slice of strawberry short cake! About me? little ole me? Well I'm so addicted to the internet that in a telling moment, yesterday my son took his Moomie's cell phone and said "just a minute, I'm checking my website." You posted to Moda Bake Shop on May 12th...was it really just last month? Moda moves fast doesn't it.

Wendy said...

Wow what a fun and cute quilt, I'd love to have it come to my house.
I don't know if I can pic it down to just one blog. Mary at Quilt Hollow, Darlene at Quilting Daze and Sharon at Red Geranium.
I teach a little at the local quilt shop and love to show how easy it is to quilt and stitch.

Sharon said...

Hi Sheri! I just found your site. It is so beautiful! You are inspiring me to get my sewing machine out, it has been years since I have used it (not that I was a true seamstress yo begin with :))

Gosh, there are so many wonderful bogs out there. I would have to say that I love Pioneer Woman. She is so real and I love her sense of humor :)

Hmmm, something about myself. I love Peanut Butter and banana sandwiches. I know alot of people think that's weird, but I prefer that over PB &J :)

The date for the post on the quilt is may 12, 2009. Thank you for entering me in your generous giveaway!

Have a blessed weekend!


Michelle said...

Hi Sheri,

The posting for the gorgeous quilt was on May 12, 2009. I have a few favourite blogs. For a good laugh I love For inspiration I like For frienship and great ideas I like and There are of course so many other wonderful blogs that I love too. Something about me. I have never liked the colour orange, but oranges have always been my favourite fruit. When I was pregnant with my son I could not eat oranges, and after he was born orange became one of my favourite colours. I am now collecting orange fabrics to one day make an orange quilt.

Micki said...

I love your quilt, and hope that i win it. Well, I love Freda's Hive and Moda Shop as they have wonderful ideas. As to myself, I am from Philly, fell in love with an Irishman, and moved to Ireland over 12 years ago. I love to do alot of things, but esp. quilting and machine embroidery.


Hi Sheri. I go to Real Life Live and Unscripted by Adrienne. She is a young woman who has come into her own with herself and family. I am a Registered Nurse that is in a profession that is unfulling with the type of peple I deal with and it shows the dark side of life and I take it home with me and it effects what I do and say and when I want a pick me up I go to Adrienne's web site. I just started learninghow to sew and it makes me feel great to put together soemthing that I can control the outcome, unlike people. I ALSO LIKE rantings of a Creole Princess, Mushyhedssweatshop and diary of a sewing fanatic. I also love Moda Bake Shop PRETTY COLORS

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

What an awesome & generous giveaway! Thank you so much for entering my name in the drawing.

May 12th is a great day besides the post of your beauty (which would look gorgeous in my bedroom). It is the birthday of my gorgeous Palomino Quarter Horse - Cinderfella! He turned 15 this year.

One of my favorite blogs is Junie Moon's - She inspires me on a regular basis!

One of my quirks is that I hate sleeping with socks on & pretty much don't like wearing them at all. When I moved from California to Ohio, I got pneumonia the first winter. Not sure if the lack of socks was the culprit??

Thanks again for sharing such a lovely gift with all of us & congratulations on your milestone post!

limpingalong said...

Oh, drat, I forgot to tell you the date from the Moda site -- It was May 12, my OD's b'day and the day of my Dad's funeral.
Sorry I left it off -- it was just a mental slip.

ahheirlooms said...

Hi Sheri--How generous of you to give away your lovely quilt! I'm not very good at winning these things but I'll throw my name in the hat anyway. I enjoy visiting the Something to Crow About blog--a local architectural and salvage team in my area. They always have creative ideas. And something few people know about me--I love to china paint...

Shirley Ann said...

Hi Sheri, the date on the Triple Irish Flower quilt is May 12, 2009. My pick-me-up blog is
I have many favourites, but this one seems to stand out for me. Something about myself .... being a homeschool mum, I dont have much time to indulge in my quilting passion, but I have secret desires to fill my home with quilts that can become heritage heirlooms for my children and grandchildren to come. By the way I LOVE Moda Bake Shop, I will be listing it as one of my favourites in my sidebar. :)
Love Shirley

The date of that fantabulous quilt was May 12th. One of my favorite blogs to visit is Made by Rae, she is witty and always has gorgeous items, plus tutorials to share. I have many others I visit every day, and also many favorites, but I picked one like you said. It hard following rules. Hmmm, something about me?.... I have worked at the same hospital since I was a sophomore in college (11 years now). I plan on working there until I retire, which according to the government will be 2042! *gasp* I hope for sooner....

Holee said...

Hi, Sheri,
I just found Camille Roskelley's blog, and I'm loving it! I'm a new quilter from Mississippi, and I've been a scrapbooker for 11 years. May 12th is the quilt post and what a LOVELY prize!

Noodle said...

Hi, Sheri! What a great giveaway! And I'm so glad you started blogging, 'cause yours is one of my go-to blogs. I also love deardaisycottage, simplify, and my girls' blogs - but my most, most favorite blog is thenieniedialogues (I'm sure you're all probably familiar with Stephanie Nielson's story already). I just LOOOOVE that lady! She is so down-to-earth and creative, not afraid to say what she thinks, yet endearing. I'm tickled to death that she's blogging again. She pulls my heartstrings and makes me laugh, both.
Every blog I've mentioned has a way of doing that, in fact. I'm really hooked on certain ones!
Oh, and Tuesday, May 12, 2009 IS the day that your glorious quilt was on Moda (I looked, too ;). I remember loving it.
Something about me...well, My 55th birthday is in one week, and I want to go fishing sooo badly, I can taste it (the fishing AND the fish). So I am excited for that.

Noodle said...

Oh, I forgot to mention, if you want to read a really funny blog, try It's my grown niece's blog about her days in rural Missouri, being the eldest of 21 children, and it is hilarious (if I do say so myself)!
I mean it. Go there!

quilteddog said...

My favorite blog is quilt dad's. I just love his color choices.

sandyandcosmo said...

I can't believe you're giving away such a beautiful quilt, thanks for a chance to win! Okay:
I like The Sartorialist blog. Real people, real fashion.
I'm scared of clowns. Really, really scared of clowns.
The date for your quilt is May 12, 2009.

Puddle of Grace said...

Congratulations to you on so many blogs!!! I have company right now and am very behind on my blogging!
I have several blogs that I like to visit (all are listed on my site) but what I like most to do is visit everyone else's favorite sites... I seem to get lost and yet find so many neat ideas or blogs to read!
I am an army wife (who is about to face another deployment)but before I was married to my DH and the Army I used to work in the dental field. I even flew with some flying doctors to give free dental care to some people who lived in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico!
Your quilt is wonderful and I would love a chance to give it a home! Your date on the Moda Bake Shop was May 12~ Have a great weekend!!!

magy said...

I don't have my own blog but really enjoy many others. Irish Muses is the one I visit most.She is a lovely lady from the US but married an Irish man. I think your Moda Bake Shop was May 12,2009? Keep up the beaufiful work.

Lissa Jane said...

Hmmm picking afavourite blog is like picking a favourite child! hmmmmmm I always get a laugh at Red Geranium Cottage, she is one funny lady. I also love checking out Ric-Rac an aussie lady who is mad for selvedges and makes amazing things like dresses, umbrella's and even a chair out of selvedges (yep certifiable methinks) ... a thing about myself no one knows? well I am pretty much an open book BUT I am a lactose intolerant chocoholic.. LOL someones cruel joke on me I am sure! I also am like 99% of most quilters i know, who buy fabric 10 times quicker than they can sew!!! This quilt was posted on Moda Bake Shop on May 12...

Justine said...

Tuesday May 12, 2009 was the post date. What a gorgeous quilt!!!

Hi Sheri, Check out Sarah's blog... I got here FROM Sarah's blog ! lol! You are sure very generous to giveaway that quilt and even more to open it up to international bloggers (yep, that's me, UK).

You posted the instructions on Moda Bake Shop on May 12th.

I am addicted to fabric - and was supposed to be on a fabric diet, but spent a bucket load of money on fabric this week to work on my current quilt project, and I am so embarrased about it.

My favourite blogs change from day to day, but lately it has been

Again, thank you for the chance to win your quilt!

pastrymama said...

Hi I like to visit David Lebovitz, he is so funny blogging about living in Paris. I am probably the oldest living working pastry chef. May 12 is the date for your Triple Irish Flower Quilt posting. Thanks for the opportunity to win your beautiful quilt.

Handmade by Mai said...

The date is 12th may. I have so many blogs I like to visit. A small list is on my blog. What a great give away you have. I never ever won something! Maybe this time?

~D Spack~ said...

What a fun quilt, are you sure you want to give it away? May 12th. Moda Bake Shop is so great. One of the very first blogs I started reading was PamKittyMorning, she is so funny. I really like crazymomquilts and Random by Nancy. I'm your neighbor!

A Joyful Chaos said...

Tuesday May 12. Thanks for having a giveaway I would love to win.

Victoria M. said...

This quilt is absolutely awesome. It would be perfect for my new granddaughter, so I would love to be entered in the drawing.

One of my favorite blogs is Sharon Boggon's blog, Pintangle. Her blog is always so interesting and informative.

I've been quilting for years doing mostly traditional designs, but like to try new things such as crazy quilting, landscape quilting, watercolor quilting, etc.

I saw your quilt on the Moda site when it was first posted, tuesday May 12. Little did I know then that it would be in a give away now. Thanks.

Mary Burn said...

Love the quilt and would certainly like to see it in my home. There are too many bloggers out there who are so fantastic that it is really hard to choose a favorite. I spend a lot of time reading the blogs and get a lot of good information from them. I have especially enjoyed Red Geranium Cottage and Yellow Farmhouse (she now has new name). I enjoyed seeing their progress on the moves and makes me want a new house. But, then I say to myself, what are you thinking? All that "stuff"? What would you do with it? Since my retirement, I have accumulated lots of fabric and don't have enough time to complete all the projects that I have started. I knit, crochet and tat in my "other" spare time. I love it!!!!!!!!

The date of the quilt was May 12.
Thanks for including me in your giveaway.


Willow said...

I like French Lique. I just started my blog last week and she was one of the first bloggers that welcome me and has given me some advice when I needed it. She was very kind and her blog has some inspiring pictures and information.

My husband asked me to marry him a week after we met, we got married 10 weeks later and we have now been married for 32 1/2

The post was May 12


~Regina~ said...

I have quite a few blogs that I love to go visit. Just Thinking has some very good posts. She is a very good writer.

Deb said...

Hello Sheri

Just found your site. Love it, Love it, Love it. I will now be looking to you for inspiration. I will soon be putting my blog up and would hope to link to "all sewn up"

My favorite non-quilting site is The woman is a hoot and I would love to be her neighbor! One of my favorite sites for quilting (Besides the Bakeshop) is Bonnie's, so much info

You don't know anything about me so this is easy-peasy. I LOVE 30's fabrics and would be "ever" so pleased to win! It would go in the guest room.......I can see it there now!

The date of the Triple Irish Chai is Tuesday, May 12th, 2009 and I didn't even have to look it up, it is marked as a favorite!

Thanks for the chance,

Hi my name's Linda and I'm from Ontario Canada. My favourite blog is She is so inspiring in her simple way.

Something about myself? I'm a mom of 3 boys, and have another little peanut on the way. I don't know if it's a boy or a girl, but I am hoping for a girl - although a boy would be fine too!

Your Triple Irish chain quilt was posted at the bakeshop on May 12, and I would love to win it! I so enjoy seeing other people's quilting work. Count me in!

Digital Misfit said...

I love to make the rounds of all the crafty/sewing/quilty blogs I can find, but I cannot resist visits to when I am in need of a good giggle.

I am over 30 years old and I do not know how to ride a bicycle. Can't do it - and I have tried! :)

May 12th is the posting date of that amazing quilt!

Two of my favorite blogs are Pioneer Woman and The Women's Colony. I have been a quilter for over twenty years and probably hold the record for most UFO's or WIP's. May 12th is the date of the post.


Tara said...

My pick me up quilting blog is crazymomquilts. Amanda Jean makes things so accesible for new quilters!

Kim said...

Oh my goodness! A quilt! Woot! Pick me! Pick me!

I visit a lot of blogs regularly but if I had to pick just one, I'd probably say it would be Linda's over at:

She's a funny lady and I always leave her blog with a smile on my face.

But honestly, there are so many great blogs out there!!!! And this SEWN launch has been a great chance to meet some new ones. Yay!

hcotten said...

my favorite blog is She doesn't always write about crafting, but it is always inspiring.
Something about myself that you don't already know: well, since I just found your blog tonight, this should be easy: I have 15 month old twin daughters and am cranking out clothes for them like there's no tomorrow. However, I have also recently gotten the quilting bug. I'm tempted to put all of my projects on hold and put all of my efforts into creating more time in the day so that I can get more sewing done.
date of aforementioned quilt: May 12, 2009

Susan said...

Hi! I just found your blog through the SEWN giveaway list...what an incredible giveaway and stunning quilt! I looked at the MODA bake shop and saw it was posted on may 12th.

Your post about the quilt was on May 12th (and I LOVE all things Moda). I'm just getting a new craft room so I will be setting up a large area for sewing. YIPPEE! You had a lot of wonderful projects on the ModaBakeShop site! Something you don't know about me - I have monovision! One eye is laser corrected for far away - the other is for closeup!

So, I will not tell you that quilt was there on May, 12, and I won't say anything about my pick me up blog being moda bake shop... I will just say I LOVE the things you make!
