Blogiversary Thoughts and Giveaway!


I still can't quite believe that I have a year's blogging under my belt. Back last August when I started, I had NO idea of where it would take me, or how much fun it would be. I didn't even tell anyone about my blog for a couple of months and then spent quite a few weeks with just 4 followers - two good friends H and L, my sister and her good friend. Not in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that in a year's time I would have close to 2000 followers!

It's been a huge learning process - there have been great times and stressful times. Blogging is fun, but very time consuming - all the more so because I love following blogs myself and all that reading takes time :-)

In the year that I've been blogging, my blog has changed quite a bit. I feel now I have found my niche as I've become more and more obsessed with quilting - and I love the little community of quilters that I've become a small part of, and the great friends I've made - even if I've only met 1 of them in real life :-) Its been so, SO much fun, and I hope it continues to be as much fun next year.

But now to the important stuff! I want to say a huge thank you to every one of you who reads, checks in, and comments on my blog - I really do appreciate your support and I hope that you continue to read and enjoy. So I have a little giveaway! Something nice for your stash :-) Amy Butler was the first fabric designer whose fabric I used to swoon over back when I started out sewing, so its appropriate that I'm giving away some of her "Love" fabric line.


I have 6 pieces of fabric from this range to give away. Each piece measures approx 12" x 20" - a little bit smaller than FQ size.

A nice little addition for your stash - you wouldn't have to add too much to it to make a baby size quilt (like my Across the Sea QAL quilt!), or they would be perfect for a pouch/purse or bag.

I'm keeping this one simple. Enter by leaving a comment if you are a follower - tell me your Linkfavourite quilting/bee block/sewing tutorial or resource.

If you want an extra entry blog/Facebook/Tweet this giveaway and come back and let me know in a separate comment.

I'll leave this open until 1pm on Friday (Irish time) and will draw the winner over the weekend. International entries welcome as always. Please make sure your have an email address associated with your profile (or leave your email in your comment if you're not sure). If there is no email address for me to contact you on, I will redraw immediately. Entry by blog comments only.

Enjoy!

Congratulations on your first anniversary, almost 2000 followers that is a great achievement and well worth celebrating.
To date my favourite resource for my sewing has been Lisa Lam's u-handbag site but after seeing the fabrics on offer at Sew Sweet Fabrics after your post I may have to reconsider :)
Great blog

Congratulations, Sarah, you have built up a brilliant blog and have so many followers because of that fact. I am happy to be one of your fans!

My favourite resource is Flickr because whenever I need ideas or inspiration for bee blocks, quilts or whatever I just get browsing and there is endless inspiration. It hasn't failed me yet.

Kirsten N said...

Congrats on the blogiversary Sarah - I love reading about your beautiful creations! I am probably most inspired by other bloggers who are happy to share their ideas and projects.

Quilter in the Gap said...

You have had one amazing year. Congrats on that! My favorite resource has got to be blogs in general. I couldn't pin point if I wanted. I find so much great information on the many blogs I follow. I love a good QAL and a great tutorial. I am currently on the look out for a tutorial on learning to do a bag with a zipper so if you know of a good one I am open for suggestions. Thanks for sharing you in the last year. I really appreciate it!

SewSister said...

Congratulations on your blogversary, I've been blogging for over a year and still only have 9 subscribers but that's good for me, I don't have the time with a full time job and commuting 2 hours a day.

I'd have to say that my favorite place for quilting patterns has got to be Moda's Bake Shop. They have tons of patterns for every style and quilting level. Best of all, they're FREE!

Stephanie - My Calico Heart said...

Congrats on the one year mark! I love reading your blog and am excited to be doing your Across the Sea QAL. I think one of my favorite blocks is the log cabin block. It's such a simple block and can be made using a jelly roll. Thanks also for this wonderful giveaway!

Linda said...

I've been following for a while now and enjoy your blog! My favorite block is .....hmmm.....I guess it would have to be the simple 9 patch because it can be changed up so easily. My favorite resource are all the blogs I read.

Betsy M said...

Congrats on your one year anniversary. I don't read too many blogs....too time consuming, but I read yours faithfully and one from Carol of the Attic Window Quilt Shop in Comctock, MI, USA.

Beezus said...

Congrats on completing your first year! My favorite resource for all things quilting is ye olde internet -- I wish I could be more specific, but there is so much information out there that I am eternally grateful to all who share their knowledge. As for a favorite block, right now I have to admit I'm a little in love with churn dash. I've been seriously thinking about what sort of quilt I can make and who I can make it for so I can create some lovely churn dash goodness! :)

Christy said...

Congratulations! I am a follower, and I love quilting blogs like yours. One of my favorites is Jaybird quilts.

Well done Sarah - I love to read your blog and thanks for the motivation with summer sewing plans. My go to place at the moment is http://incolororder.blogspot.com/ she has a great series on the Art of Choosing and has a great selection of quilt tutorials too! In fact I dug out my stash of Amy Butler Belle with the thought of doing one of them (obviously after finishing my summer sewing plans!).

mblittle5 said...

For some reason, I can never remember how to join my quilt binding so the end is mitered the same way I sew my binding strips together so you can't tell where I started and ended. I have found this tutorial very helpful and have finally bookmarked it so I can find it easily. http://www.redpepperquilts.com/2009/11/binding-tutorial.html
I hope others find this helpful!!

Johanne said...

Congratulations, and it's me who thank you for your time and effort spent on your blog. Looking forward to the 2nd anniversary!
I decided a few days ago that I just had to learn to sew bags, and as # 1 I get a lot of help and inspiration from Lisa Lam's u-handbag site.
The wonderful fabric you give away would be perfect for a super nice handabg for me.
Thank you once more!

Catskill Quilter said...

CONGRATS on your blogiversary! I am one of your many follwers, wishing you an even better year next year!

Allison C said...

Happy Anniversary! I am a follower! I typically use blogs in general for my sources for info. Recently I used Sew Mama Sew to figure out what size needle I use for laminated fabric and oil cloth.

Leanne said...

Happy Blogsversary! And congratulations on your wonderful blog, seems I am not the only one who loves reading it. I turn to the internet most for inspiration and help with quilting and blocks, I enjoy swaps and bees where other people give me their help and ideas and I keep buying more books. So no one single resource, instead many are my favourite.

Fran said...

Congratulations on your anniversary, I really enjoy reading your blog. My favourite quilting resource is Elizabeth Hartman's book Practical Guide to Patchwork & her blog Oh! Fransson, I think she is a quilting genius!

Mrs. Prince said...

Congrats! honestly, i get all my ideas from the blogs i follow (like yours!) and from pins! jessie.s.clark@gmail.com

Deborah in Atlanta said...

Happy blogiversary! I am a follower to your blog. I am always hopping all over the internet reading blogs, looking at patterns at quilt shops, and I can't say thus far any one thing has stood out. Everything goes to first place, but time I finish that project, something else takes over and it's the new first place item. So I can't pick just one.

Lorri said...

I am a follower of yours. I dont have any fav's right now. They are all good.
Thx

Charlotte said...

My favorite tutorial/pattern would have to be the colored pencil roll tutorial. I kind of combined instructions from different people and kind of just winged it. I love making them! :) I am a follower!!!!

Congratulations on this milestone in your life! Thank you for your blog for the wonderful inspiration, and positive attitude.

My favorite blocks are easy, peasy, layered, frayed blocks. I use my daughter's drawings( that I photocopy) and make quilts, pillows, tote bags, & purses.
