100th post~~~ wahoo~~~sounds like a giveaway!

I am a talky one, huh? Or as my Canadian sister would She claims they say "eh" because there are so many letter "A's" in the word Canada. I think she is on to something, lol. That girl is as crazy as I am!

So short and sweet. If you would like to be included in this giveaway, shoot me a reason why....why you would like to have me send you the new MAKE LIFE charm pack by Moda and a fat quarter each of 3 French General Rouenneries in the roche, oyster and faded red colorways. I might find something else to toss in just to sweeten the pot. I'll draw a winner on Monday...unless the stork strikes early, then I'll be with the earthmama!

Do ya'll just love embroidery? I do. I am starting to really get into it, like really big time! I am working on a quilt kit, for my shop, of an awesome 30's type of quilt with butterflies and embroidery. It is really breathtaking.

I'll have to get on with my baby projects first...later, Elaine


  1. Hi Elaine
    Please include me in your giveaway. I would love to win this awesome fabric because I love the colors and I'm a fabric junkie.


  2. I will admit I have a fabric addiction! But the other reason would be because I just seen a great quilt using the nickels!
    Thanks for a great giveaway and blog!

  3. I have to agree with Rhonda, I have a fabric addiction and i so love both of these ranges. Please show us some of the baby things you have made, and count me in the draw.

  4. Why should you send them to me...........? Hmmm, let me see!! I guess for the same reason that everyone else has too, simply because we're all fabric addicts and I just love, love, love the French General Rouenneries range. It's so delicious it gives me goosebumps, ooohhh I could make a wonky star quilt with it too ;o)
    You're very generous Elaine, have a great weekend.

  5. I think that you should send me the fabric because I have a baby quilt to make and the Make Life charm pack just seems so appropriate! Congrats on your 100th post!

    Your wonky star will go in the mail tomorrow--just need to snap a picture of it! Can't wait to see the quilt put together!

  6. Wow congrats on your 100th post! I would love to make a Schnibbles from the Make Life charm pack, and I have been on the look out for French General Rouenneries because I LOVE this fabric :-) Thanks for entering me in your very generous giveaway!

  7. Congratulations on 100 posts!!!
    French General's Rouenneries are my favourite fabrics!!! The whole range is beautiful to sew with!! Thank you for a great giveaway!

    I can't wait to see you baby projects!!!!...and your embroidery!!!

    Have a great weekend, Elaine!!!

  8. Congrats on making it to 100! I want to win because I married a Frenchman and if I throw in some FRENCH GENERAL ROUENNERIES he will be duly impressed! I prefer subdued colors to the super brights, but have enough grands to buy those too! Feed my addiction please! I am always hungry!

  9. Congrats on 100!!!!! I can't think of a single reason to send these to me, lol. So pick someone else. I love them but I'm on a fiber diet!
    I love embroidery so much, my hubby [years ago] bought me a machine to do it. I admit it's quicker, but I still love hand embroidery and try to stitch every night. I'd love to see the quilt you're working on!

  10. Congrats on making 100!! such a nice round number! I think I should win because I have never played with a charm pack before and have a new nephew to quilt for, and because I need to get back into the sewing mode.

  11. Fun post. Delightful fabrics. Lovely giveaway! Please count me in.

    And I'm happy to hear you are getting into machine embroidery. I love it!


  12. Congratulations! I think you should give them to me because I am a fairly new quilter and my stash still needs building (whereas most people's needs busting!) Thanks, Kat.

  13. I love fabric, that's why! Thanks for the chance!

  14. Congratulations on your 100th post! Exciting, eh??? LOL!

    Anyway, please include me in your Give-a-Way

  15. Hi Elaine, wanted to let you know Im mailing your block tomorrow, and as serendipity would have it, I will enter your giveaway! Congratulations on 100 posts!

    I'd like to win because I am strictly forbidden to purchase any new fabric for the forseeable future! You giveaway selections are very nice, so generous of you.

    Thanks! have a good weekend.

  16. Oh fun!!! Please add me to the growing list of people who would love to receive this package.

    Reason: how about I'm Canadian just like your wonderful and beautiful (is that a little too over the top?) sister. And seeing as how I live in the northern-most area of Canada (think midnight sun in the summer and endless days of winter darkness) I need all the fabric I can to keep warm.

  17. I love these fabrics and I too am trying not to buy too much the first half of this year because I have to use what is in my stash...I am having withdrawals already! I look forward to seeing your new stitchery quilt. hugs

  18. I love the variety of this give away. Something classic and something sassy. As I am a diverse person, the fabric fits! I just found you on quilterblogs and am glad of it.

  19. Congratulations on your 100th post!!

    I think I should win because...well because I just don't have enough fabric already (wink, wink) and need more to add to my stash. :)

  20. Congrats in your 100th post!!
    Lovely fabrics,I`d love to win them.

  21. Congratulations on your century!!! It is certainly an accomplishment. (guess who's found a whole heap of denim jeans and is going to make a denim quilt??? hmmmmm????)

    I too, thank you for the chance to enter your giveaway - I need to find out more about Moda fabrics.

    Happy New Year!

  22. Why should I win?? I will tell you why???
    Because I am having a week from Hell and I need something nice to cheer me up and 3 FQ and a charm pack would greatly help! Thats why!
    Hugs, withdrawls Liz

  23. Ooops my frustration I forgot to congratulate you on 100 Posts!
    There go my chances ...LOL

  24. I adore fabric can't win if you don't try. Thanks for your generosity!!

  25. Oooh..I've been admiring that fabric from afar. ;-) Congratulations on 100 posts. It's so great to document your quilting journey...

  26. I'd like to get them because I have no other chance to get them. I live in Hungary and it is soooo expencive to me to order it and I like moda style.

  27. congrats on 100 posts!
