This is one is in honor of my 50th post of this silly blog o’mine. I’m having fun with it but it’s also a lot of work given that I have two boys under the age of 5 in the house. Did I mention that TV time is a total of 1 hour per day? It’s a balancing act and some days I wanna hang up the towel but for now, up for grabs are these.


Two FQ (Alexander Henry’s Juicy and Amy Butler) and 2 quarter yard cuts (Isadora Phoenix’s Woodstock and Moda’s Nest). I had a hard time not cutting into those birds and framing them for my son’s room.

Soooo, I’ll give these until Monday the 6th at midnight (Central time) and will post a winner Tuesday sometime so check back, ok?

To enter, please leave me a comment telling me your first name, where you’re from and your hobby(ies). I will use a random generator this time to pick a winner. Have fun!

p.s. I’m looking at the bird fabric and it looks blue on my monitor but just so you know it’s quite green in reality.

  4. I just found your site through the cottage quilting bee & so far so good, can’t beat a giveaway. My hobbies include sewing, which I really don’t so much of because I’m too busy at blogging and looking at everyone elses hobbies and sewing projects. By looking at everyones project, I feel I too am making a project…its hard work.

    I am Jackie Sue born and raised in Indiana, but a Florida resident since 96. My family and I are stateside right now, but we are missionaries to Guatemala, too!

    Hobbies!? I have to admit that quilting is it. I had a career in graphic design and after becoming a stay at home mom, i kept it as a hobby, but in my effort to get off the computer more, quilting has been the replacement! My daughter is 4 and is a great helper in it too! Thank you again for this opportunity to WIN!
