WIP Wednesday (and a giveaway)

I finished putting together my Groove quilt top during my kids naps today. Now I have tons of little pink, orange, brown, and white pieces of fabric all over my dining room floor. This is one of the only times that I don't mind the look of a messy house :)
Groove quilt top
I am not sure how I am going to quilt this yet, so I will probably put this aside for a week or two while I work on some smaller projects.  

I opened my blog the other day and was very excited to see this:
I have passed the 100 followers mark!  I started this blog a few months ago because I love the online quilting community and I wanted to find a way to become more a part of it.  It has been very fulfilling to be able to talk about quilting in a forum where people have the same interests (my husband will listen, but he does not share my love of quilting!).  

To celebrate passing the 100 follower mark, I wanted to do a little giveaway.  I have been holding onto this beautiful Echo charm pack and I want to share it with one of you.  It contains a 5 inch square of each print from Lotta Jansdotter's Echo line.
If you would like to be entered in the giveaway, just leave me a comment.  You can tell me something interesting about yourself, something that you are looking forward to, or whatever you want.  I will pick a winner on Sunday evening.

  1. I love your version of this quilt! Seeing it I initially thought it was a shower curtain, even though the quilt's been all over bloggyland. Maybe I should make one for that purpose?? ;) Congrats on reaching 100 and thank you for the chance to win such a lovely prize!

  7. Congratulations on the milestone and the piecing. I'm looking forward to the birth of my first niece - she was due today but is apparently going to be late. At least she wasn't early though, so I had time to finish the quilt I made for her and deliver it to my heavily pregnant sister ready and waiting!

  8. Congratulations on the finished groovy top, and on reaching 100 followers! I remember when I was there, which wasn't really too long ago, I really wondered who all these people are that want to see my stuff! And before you know it, you'll surpass 200. :) Thanks for the giveaway, I'd love to win that charm pack.

  19. Congrats on reaching so many followers! You finished your Groove top so quickly and it looks amazing! I'm just getting started on a new quilt for our bed now (lots of light blues paired with white). Hopefully it will come together quickly too!

  20. That's so sweet of you to do a giveaway! I never picked up any Bella and have kind of been kicking myself for it. I love your groovy quilt, the combo is perfect - really, my parents had a rug from the 60 s in those exact shades. I wish I had it now but it was wrecked when their basement flooded. I don't think my mum exactly misses it, but it's probably a good thing because I know my sister and I would be fighting over it!

  21. congratulations on 100! Your quilt top is beautiful, just don't make me do any part of it when it is your do.good stitches turn to pick the block....curves scare me! Something about me: I have decided that I am going to REALLY try to actually finish a quilt by the end of this year. I have made lots of blocks (which I thankfully get to give away) and two quilt tops but have never finished an entire quilt, of any size. Wish me luck!

  27. Happy Triple Digits. Your Groovy quilt is amazing in those colors. Every time I see that pattern I hear Austin Powers in my head saying "groovy baby", never fails.

  28. Congratulations on reaching 100 followers! Love your Groove quilt, the colours are amazing. I'm just about to start quilting again after an enforced lay off due to hand surgery. My frustration at not being able to sew was made bearable by being able to get my quilting 'fix' from the quilting blogs that I follow, so thanks!
