700th post giveaway



Wow, I've had a lot to say I guess. Since I started blogging, this is my 700th post. Must be time for a giveaway to anyone who has stuck around to read about my quilting and my life :)








So, leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner on Saturday after I get back from my daughter's tennis tournament. Tell me who your favorite teacher was.








The winner will get some fabric cut with my Accuquilt Go! cutter. Not sure what just yet, but I'm planning on adding some fusable web to the back and trying out some of my applique dies. I'll add to this post as I work through my dies and play some more. I have a lot of dies to try out and just bought 14 yards of fusable web on sale at JoAnn's!








I also logged in today and saw this on my counter. I love it when the numbers do things like this! Wow, 40004 people have been by to visit. Thanks! Or, maybe my dad has stopped by that often. Hi Dad!




(giveaway for North America blog readers please--I can't afford international postage--sorry)
**Update #1: The first group of applique die cuts are these super cute puppies! They are made with the Go! gingham dog die and have a separate ear. There are 4 different blue dog fabrics and ears so you can mix and match the dogs. There are 4 of each and they face different directions. Use them in blocks, or on borders or whatever you decide. Each dog and ear piece already has the fusable web attached to the back so they are ready to GO!
**Update #2 Calico Cats are also included in the giveaway. 16 of these cute little guys in shades of blue!

And look, my baby dies came in the mail yesterday, just in time to get used to make some cutouts for the giveaway! (Sorry, you don't get the dies, just some fabric cutouts :) Various cutouts of each of these dies as I find time today. I have to try them all out you know.

I also will include cutouts from the Funky Flower, Rose of Sharon, Stars, Circle and Critter. Those are all of the Appliquie dies I have and I'm trying out different fusable web. I can tell today is going to be a fun day. Be sure to leave a comment if you want to try out some of these appliques on your quilts or even baby shirts, tote bags, book covers, or whever your imagination comes up with!

My favorite teacher was actually two of them. A pair of sisters that were so wonderful to me in school. That time of my life wasn't easy at all. They somehow knew life for me wasn't the same as most of my classmates and they really showed they cared. Their names were Joy and Jo Bubnekovich. Now they are Joy and Jo Crews. The sisters married brothers!!

By the way, they also taught me quilting ;)

My sixth grade teacher was my favorite ~ she was pretty, single, and fun. And after a bunch of years of middle-aged men, it was so nice to have a woman teacher again!

Love your blog. My favorite teacher was Mrs. VanGorder. I went to school in a one room country school until 6th grade and she was my teacher the whole time.
